Best Slot Game Releases in May 2018

5 June 2018
Vikings go to Hell

If you’re a big player of online slots you’ll know that the wheel never stops turning! No sooner have players got their heads around one set of games than another set of new releases comes along.

And there are no summer holidays in the gaming world, so May 2018 was just as busy as ever with quality new games pouring out of design studios of every shape and size during the month.

Here is SlotsAdviser’s pick of the best.

1 – Vikings go to Hell by Yggdrasil

The myths-and-legends obsessed Scandi design magicians are back with another trip to gaming Valhalla that looks like it ticks all their usual boxes – fantastic visuals, sound, and user experience with innovation spilling out of its horned helmets. Again, Yggdrasil – can you pronounce that? – focus on a fantasy world that looks fantastic and delivers out-of-this-world gameplay.

2 – Amazing Aztecs by Microgaming

Amazing Aztecs slot

Microgaming doesn’t have the shiny newness of Yggdrasil but they have an incredible reach that has made them global favourites that most slots players will have come across at some time in their gaming lives.

This latest slot is themed on the well-known ancient Latin American civilisation, which is draped across five-reels with 243 ways to win to catch the eye. The design is bright and vibrant, with gold – the famed treasures of the Aztecs that so entranced the greedy invaders from Europe – coins tumbling down the screen in the rewarding bonus game. With lots of game-play variation and a 96% pay-out percentage this time travel is both rewarding and entertaining.

3 – The 100k Drop by Red Tiger

The 100k Drop slot

The eye-catching name should get the players pouring into this game show-themed spinner that’s a real novelty. The figure is no exaggeration, with a top jackpot of 2,000 x the player stake.

It’s a very classic looking machine, with a 5 by 3 playing grid and symbols based around lovely moolah! A fairly standard issue in many ways, the 100K Drop wins extra attention with its original theming and big prize potential. As TV tie-ins go, this is one that might be worth changing the channel for.

4 – Temple of Tut by Microgaming

Temple of Tut slot

There are just 10 pay lines on this co-production between gaming giants Microgaming and Just For The Win. If that number is low then the fact that the five reels in this game can spin with up to half of their numbers as stacked wilds is a bit more of an impressive figure, as is the massive 60 maximum of free spins.

If you like Egyptian themed games then stake between 10p and £250 on this game that makes up in gameplay and smooth experience what it might lack in sophisticated visuals.

5 – Pirate’s Charm by Quickspin

Pirate’s Charm slot

This game is just out of port, but it’s got lots of fans already, who love the classic buccaneering theme alongside some great value from 243 ways to win. Bonus games in the shape of respins, free spins, and bonus symbols deliver on big-win potential, while the graphics, sound and experience are atmospheric and beautifully put together.
