We continue our 2022 voyage of discovery with another batch of the best new online slots of the week! This time around, Playtech is back with a great multiway release while Games Lab returns to Arthurian legend for its hot new release. We’ve also got a new online slot from Peter & Sons ­– certainly one of our favorite game designers of the past 12 months.

Games Lab is first up with Towering Pays Excalibur. It’s a five-reel slot where the legendary sword appears to cover reels and trigger some pretty impressive reel extensions.

Wild Duel is the newest slot from the wonderfully-named Peter & Sons. It’s a Wild West-themed release in which the Outlaw and Marshall do battle on the reels. Can the Marshall win out and reward you with some exciting bonus features in the process?

We end the best new online slots of the week with Colossal Cash Zone from Pragmatic Play. It’s a welcome take on the classic slot that features giant symbols and a potentially lucrative free spins bonus. Try it for free, along with all our latest slot releases, right here at Vegas Slots Online.  

Towering Pays Excalibur by Games Lab

Ready for some legendary gameplay from one of Australia’s hottest slot companies? Try Towering Pays Excalibur and trigger free spins, multipliers, or the mighty Feature Wheel!

Aussie slots pioneer, Games Lab, has been building up its portfolio of more than 300 games since 2008. The range of slots from Games Lab verges from the titillating simplicity of The Naughty List to the slick sophistication of Orc vs Elf and Pirate Isle.   

The new Games Lab release, Towering Pays Excalibur, falls somewhere in between. It’s a five-reel online slot set in an Arthurian world of knights, swords, and witchcraft. King Arthur himself appears as a wild symbol and will replace all regular symbols other than the scatters. You can also earn a prize multiplier worth 2x-10x on any winning spin.

Arthur’s mighty sword, Excalibur, also makes an appearance on reels one, two, and three. Any Excalibur icon will transform into the same random symbol following a spin. However, you will enter the Stage arena if Excalibur appears on more than one reel at the same time. On each stage, an additional row is added, activating ten extra paylines in the bargain. This progression can continue until there are five reels and eight rows in total.

In addition, you can trigger the Avalon Feature if Excalibur appears on each of reels one, two, and three when the grid measures 5×8. You’ll get to spin the Feature Wheel to earn yourself free spins. You can also win the wheel bonus if three feature symbols appear simultaneously on reels one, three, and five.

Towering Pays Excalibur manages to cram in more than enough bonus slots fun to keep even the most jaded slots player happy. Wield your mighty sword today and give the game a spin for free.

Shark Blitz by Playtech

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, Playtech releases its fearsome new slot: Shark Blitz. Play 5,625 ways to win and trigger free spins with a chance of winning a progressive jackpot!

There’s always room in our best new online slots of the week for some old-school Playtech gameplay. Shark Blitz is the latest release from the online casino giant that manages to squeeze in 5,625 ways to win and the Jackpot Blitz feature.

You play Shark Blitz on a six-reel layout arranged in a 3-5-5-5-3 format. There is no fancy animation or graphics here, just tried-and-trusted Playtech simplicity.

Wild diamonds can appear on the reels to substitute all regular symbols. Plus, you will activate free spins if you land three to six scatters anywhere in view. It is possible to trigger up to 15 free spins if you hit enough bonus symbols. However, you can also retrigger more free spins as the bonus progresses.

In addition, you will earn a multiplier starting at 1x. The multiplier increases every time you retrigger free spins. For instance, if you recharge the bonus with six scatters, you’ll reset the number of free spins and increase the multiplier to 5x.

If that’s not enough to sink your teeth into, Shark Blitz features a very special progressive jackpot bonus. In classic Playtech style, the slot is linked to four mystery progressives. When the bonus game activates at random, you’ll have to choose diamonds from the 20 on-screen. Simply match three identical symbols to win the corresponding progressive jackpot.

We’ll always have a soft spot for a new Playtech slot. And when it includes a progressive jackpot or two, that’s even better. Try out Shark Blitz for free and see if this release grabs you by the jaws.

Wild Duel by Peter & Sons

It’s time to get out the six-shooters in our best new online slots of the week with Wild Duel. The new game from Peter & Sons features a ton of wild modifiers plus free spins and multipliers. Hit the saloon and remember not to spill your whiskey!

They might sound like a high-end haberdashery, but Peter & Sons are actually a slick slots developer responsible for games such as D’Cirque, Punch Club and Sheriff Colt.

Sheriff Colt was one of Peter & Sons’ best releases of 2021. Now, the developer is back on the Wild West trail with Wild Duel. It’s a five-reel slot set in the courtyard of a desert saloon. The reels are crammed with barrels of TNT, bottles of whiskey, and cacti.

You can trigger free spins by landing three or more VS scatters anywhere in view. However, it is possible to activate the round simply by collecting scatters as you play. You’ll win ten free games with multipliers and sticky wilds in play. In addition, three wilds can be placed randomly on the reels following a non-winning spin.

You’ll also activate the Wild Duel round by collecting two bonus scatters. There are two outer reels to follow: the Outlaw Reel and the Marshall Reel. A duel will start if the Marshall’s position matches the Outlaw’s.

You will win a wild modifier if the Marshall defeats the Outlaw. Modifiers can include random wilds with multipliers, expanding wilds, or sticky wilds.

Wild Duel is another high-volatility online slot from Peter & Sons but it’s definitely one for you if you live wilds and free spins. Give it a play for free at Vegas Slots Online.

Colossal Cash Zone by Pragmatic Play

Ready for some colossal fun on your online slots? Try out Colossal Cash Zone from Pragmatic Play, a nostalgic slot crammed with giant symbols and free spins fun.

We end our best new online slots of the week round-up with something a little more nostalgic. Colossal Cash Zone is a retro online slot with five reels and 20 paylines. Symbols include some standard royal symbols as well as fruit and golden bells. You can also land wild symbols which replace all regular ones in the game.

This is no ordinary classic slot, however. Make sure you look out for colossal symbols which can contain four or nine symbols of the same type. They appear on the center three reels and can add big money to your returns.

The central three reels also act as the Cash Zone area. When Cash Zone symbols appear on those reels, they will trigger a cash payout.

You’ll win 1x total stake for hitting one Cash Zone symbol. However, this can increase to 250x if you land nine Cash Zone symbols covering the entire area.

Colossal Cash Zone also boasts a free spins bonus round which you can trigger by landing three or more scatters. The bonus symbol appears stacked too, giving you even more chances to activate free spins. It is possible to win up to 22 free spins if you land enough bonus icons. In addition, you’ll earn a random multiplier worth 1x to 20x on every free spin.

There’s always space for a new classic slot in everyone’s must-play list. Make Colossal Cash Zone yours and play it for free today.
