Slots of the Week April 1 2022 feature image

It’s time to dive into another delectable collection of fresh casino games as we peruse the best new online slots of the week.

This week’s eclectic bunch of new releases features a fearsome game from Red Tiger, an Egyptian-themed slot by Play’n GO, and a slice of classic slots fun from Blueprint.

Zillard King is the perfect slot if you love big wilds and extra reels. With a jackpot worth 3000x stake, what’s not to like?

Eye of Atum is Play’n GO’s newest adventure in ancient Egypt. Trigger 12 free spins and watch as the Creator God upgrades wilds to enhance your payouts.

Lightning Gorilla is the newest Lightning Box Games release with some bonuses to match the roar of the mighty beast. Collect those coins and fill the meter to trigger cash prizes and big upgrades.

Finally, we’re going old-school with Blueprint Gaming’s Mega Bars Fortune Wheel. From free spins and the Fortune Wheel to the Jackpot King Deluxe Pot bonus, this classic slot is oozing prize mayhem at every turn. Why not give all our best new online slots a spin for free today?

Zillard King by Red Tiger

The Zillard King is coming in the brand-new slot from Red Tiger! Unleash wilds across 30 paylines and fill the progress bar to unlock a sixth reel!

If you can’t wait for the next King Kong or Jurassic Park movie, then perhaps Red Tiger’s Zillard King slot will fill the void. It’s a jungle adventure played on five reels where a sixth can be unlocked if you hit the right symbols.

This game is all about upgrades and wilds. The wild Zillard will spring into life if it lands on the reels. He also triggers additional lightning wilds on a non-winning spin which can rain down onto the reels for added wins.

The Zillard can also upgrade during the game. You collect coins that fill the meter on the right-hand side of the screen. As you fill the meter you trigger a Zillard wild upgrade. Wild upgrades include stacked wilds, stacked wilds with random multipliers, and finally a sticky and stacked wild with an increasing multiplier!

With so much wild action, there’s no need for a free spins feature. In fact, we were so preoccupied trying to fill that progress bar we missed the complete lack of a free spins bonus.

Some of our favorite best new online slots of the week have featured progress bars recently. And with a top payout worth 3000x, Zillard King might be one of the best of the year yet. Give it a spin for free and see for yourself.   

Eye of Atum by Play’n GO

Unearth the tomb of the Creator God and play Eye of Atum from Play’n GO. This five-reel Egyptian-themed online slot has free spins and expanding wilds galore. But can you hold out for the fantastic 500x jackpot?

The new Egyptian-themed slots keep on coming with the release of Eye of Atum from Play’n GO. And, like Zillard King, the main character here acts as the game’s wild.

Atum is the ancient Egyptian Creator God and he will perform the function of the wild symbol. Atum expands when he lands on the middle three reels.

You also trigger a free spins feature by hitting three scatters in any position. You win 12 free games to begin with. This is no ordinary free spins bonus, however: your scatters pay out a multiplier of your stake first.

The more triggering scatters you hit, the more you win. For example, you can win 500x stake if you activated the feature with five scatters in any position.

Remember those expanding wilds? They can also appear during the bonus feature. When an expanding wild makes an appearance, it awards a high-paying symbol upgrade. You also retrigger extra free spins by hitting one to three wild symbols.

Play’n GO seem to be enjoying their recent foray into Egyptian-themed slots. Last month’s Secret of Dead is still an office favorite at Vegas Slots Online, and last year’s Scroll of Dead is still a hit with players who love six-reel games. Why not take a trip to ancient Egypt today and try Eye of Atum for free?  

Lightning Gorilla by Lightning Box Games

Watch out for thunderbolts and very, very frightening animals in Lightning Gorilla by Lightning Box Games. This top developer is lighting up our best new online slots of the week once again with a game crammed with special bonuses and big fixed jackpots!

Lightning Gorilla slot reels by Lightning Box Games

We featured some new Lightning Box slots at the end of last year. Hot on the heels of Lightning Shenlong and Lightning Leopard comes Lightning Gorilla. Like Lighting Leopard, this new slot features Lighting Respins and four fixed jackpots. However, there are also some Colossal symbols coming along for the ride.

You play Lightning Gorilla on a classic five-reel setup with 40 paylines. Wild symbols replace all regular symbols in the game. You also activate a Lighting Respin by landing 6–12 of the blue scatters.

You start with three respins. Active reels are randomly chosen at the start of any spin. You collect lightning bolts if they land on those selected reels. Plus, you reset the respins to three if you collect one or more of the bolt symbols.

Look out for the Colossal symbols which cover 2×2 or 3×3 areas. These symbols display either jackpot symbols or cash prizes. You can collect the relevant jackpot if a symbol lands on an active reel during a lighting respin.

At the end of the feature, you are awarded the total prize money displayed on the blue lightning bolt scatters.

There’s something enjoyably old-school about the graphics and animation in Lightning Gorilla. And it can be fun trying to nail down those blue prize symbols as they come hurtling down the reels. In many ways, it has the feel of iSoftBet’s Wild Ape slot or WMS’s land-based slot machine, Epic Ape. We’re big fans of all three games. See for yourself by trying Lightning Gorilla for free now.

Mega Bars Fortune Wheel by Blueprint Gaming

Mega Bars Fortune Wheel is the latest nostalgic slot from Blueprint Gaming which boasts a free-plays bonus and a spin of the giant prize wheel!

Sometimes, you just need an online slot that offers simple gameplay and bonus features. We end our look at the best new online slots of the week with Mega Bars Fortune Wheel from Blueprint Gaming. It’s a five-reel slot that resembles a British fruit machine, complete with mechanical sound effects and no-nonsense graphics.

The game only has ten paylines and three possible symbols: the red X, black BAR, and FREE GAMES icon. You can win up to 500x stake in the base game if you land five-of-a-kind BAR symbols. In addition, all wins pay adjacent, so you can pick up a prize left to right, right to left, or even in the middle of a payline.

You trigger free spins by hitting three to five adjacent bonus symbols across an active win line. In addition, you get to spin the Fortune Wheel by landing three wheel icons on reels two to four. The wheel contains multiplier values.

Mega Bars Fortune Wheel also comes as part of Blueprint’s Jackpot King Deluxe range. You can win the bonus at any point by landing five Jackpot King Deluxe overlays across reels one to five.

In the bonus game, you spin a second set of reels to accumulate crowns. You enter the Wheel King section of the game by accumulating 15 or more crowns. This is where you spin the wheel for a shot at winning a multiplier or jackpot.

Mega Bars Fortune Wheel is another great slice of classic slots fun from Blueprint Gaming. Why not check it out for free at Vegas Slots Online?
