NetEnt is delving into the cluster win sphere with Funk Master. Match the disco balls to trigger Avalanche reels and build up multipliers and wilds. We even love the funky music.

Play’n GO has been inspired this month by Indian culture if Idol of Fortune is anything to go by. You can trigger free spins with up to 88 mystery symbols!

Finally, Big Time Gaming is opening its Wild Portals with its newest release – the supplier has even brought along Megaways to make things a little more interesting.

Microgaming releases its new Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah slot in the same month that the new Thor: Love and Thunder film hits theaters. If there’s an award for great timing, it surely deserves to be winging its way to the Microgaming head office now.

Just like Marvel, Microgaming is bringing out the big guns for the new release. Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah uses similar graphics and features to the original online slot but the supplier is bringing along some progressives for added thrills.

This new slot features a prize wheel on the main game screen. You collect progressive trigger coins as you spin the reels. These can randomly trigger one of the game’s progressive jackpots.

While the Mini progressive seeds at just 10.00, the Mega progressive starts at a cool 2,000,000.00. If you thought the original Mega Moolah slot offered a big seed, it’s nothing compared to Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah.

Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah also sees the return of the wilds. The regular wild doubles any winning combination it helps to complete. Plus, look out for the random wildstorm which can turn up to five reels wild.

You enter the Great Hall of Spins by landing three or more scatters in any position. There is a selection of free spins bonuses based on classic Norse characters, including the Valkyrie (ten spins at 5x), Loki (15 spins with Wild Magic feature), and Odin (20 spins with transforming wilds). Thor’s free spins is the best, with Rolling Reels on every spin.

In a year of big Norse releases, it’s time to revisit a Microgaming classic. Give Thunderstruck II Mega Moolah a spin for free.

Funk Master by NetEnt

Get your funk on with NetEnt’s new online slot. Funk Master is a toe-tapping addition to the NetEnt canon that features Avalanche reels, free spins, and expanding reels.

Funk Master offers something a little different from NetEnt in 2022. The game utilizes a cluster win mechanic as you boogie on down in one of the best disco-themed slots for a while.

You begin Funk Master on an 8×8 play grid. You win cash prizes by matching clusters of same-colored glitterballs. A cluster win activates an avalanche where the winning symbols disappear to be replaced by ones appearing above.

Look out for the dancing wilds. These will move randomly to another reel position and trigger an avalanche.

Those dancing wilds also come in a ‘hotspot.’ This is a 2×2 area on the screen (3×3 in the free spins bonus) which stays locked until it becomes part of a winning combination. Once you unlock a hotspot you win yourself a dancing wild.

Watch out too for special multipliers. You can increase your win by landing two or more multipliers. Values range from 2x to 10x.

You trigger free spins by hitting three or more dancing wilds during the main game. You win six spins to begin with. In addition, you can expand the rows upward by unlocking dancing wild hotspots. It’s possible to extend the rows to a maximum of 12.

We haven’t seen a NetEnt game like Funk Master in our best new online slots of the week for a while. The game is very volatile but if you like big multipliers and the cluster win mechanic, it could be for you. Play it for free today and see what you think.

Idol of Fortune by Play’n GO

From the dancefloor we move to India with Play’n GO’s Idol of Fortune. Trigger up to 48 free spins and hit mystery symbols for even bigger prizes.

Whether you agree with religious icons being used for online slots, there’s no denying that Play’n GO has put a lot of time and effort into Idol of Fortune. The developer’s new slot celebrates Hindu culture with a slot that’s brimming with beautiful graphics and even more tasty bonuses.

Ganesh, the Hindu god of beginnings and intellect, presides over five reels that are full of sacred birds and animals. The game plays 243 ways to win too.

You activate the free spins by hitting three or more scatters in any position. Start by selecting one of six free spins features, each with its own modifiers. It’s possible to choose 20 free spins with eight mystery symbols on the reels or eight free spins with 48 mystery symbols. You can even opt for a mystery pick to win 8–20 spins and 8–88 mystery symbols.

The mystery paying symbol only appears in free spins. These icons ‘stick and spread,’ replicating themselves vertically up a reel. Once they fill the reel, the mystery symbols are removed, leaving more space for extra symbols to land.

Idol of Fortune also features a special gold reel. These appear randomly during any spin. You can also trigger more than one gold reel at a time. You win a special prize if a wild lands in one of the gold reels.

We haven’t featured many Indian-themed games in our best new online slots of the week round-ups. However, with a lot of bonus potential, Idol of Fortune from Play’n GO looks like becoming an office favorite. See for yourself and try it for free.

Wild Portals by Big Time Gaming

Jump into hyperspace with big reels and big action in Big Time Gaming’s Wild Portals. Land mystery symbols and build up wild multipliers as you play up to 117,649 ways to win!

Wild Portals slot reels by Big Time Gaming

Let’s end this roundup of the best new online slots of the week with Wild Portals by Big Time Gaming. The new slot also makes good use of BTG’s own Megaways mechanic.

Wild Portals is a space-age six-reel slot where each reel contains 2–7 symbols. It’s possible to hit up to 117,649 ways to win on a single spin.

The wild portal kicks in at random on any spin. It appears as a 2×2 wild on reels 2–5. It will substitute for all symbols other than the scatters.

After the wild portal has completed a combination, it opens to reveal a random royal symbol. In addition, the symbol is removed from the playing area and the wild multiplier increases by more than one. New symbols then drop into its place, potentially creating a new winning combo.

You can also trigger free spins by hitting three or more scatters anywhere. You win eight free spins to begin with, plus another two for every additional scatter. Oh, and a wild portal is guaranteed to make an appearance during the bonus round. The wild multiplier also carries over into the free spins round.

We should also mention the win exchange. You have the option of exchanging a win worth 75x stake for eight free spins. However, if you only win 25–75x stake, you can exchange it for free spins by spinning the prize wheel.

The wild portal and multiplier definitely give BTG’s Megaways mechanic another dimension. Play for free and see how Wild Portals compares to other Megaways games.
