Newest Slot Games for 2018
New slots are released by gaming companies every month. In the list below, I’ve added the latest releases in 2018. Top slots designers like IGT, Playtech, NetEnt, Betsoft, WMS, and RTG have slot machines on the list. Newer contributors like Genesis Gaming and Playson are included, too.
The full list of 2018 slot machines can be found below. I wanted to highlight the newest slots, as a way of showing the many ideas designers have these days. Some focused on licensed slots. Others look for inventive ways to help players win, such as the “1024 Ways” slot machine on the list. Progressives and fixed jackpot games are included.
List of the Newest Games to Play
Video slots dominate the list, with a proliferation of favorite game features, like wild icons, scatter pays, free spins, and multipliers. Let’s start the list with the latest game released, as of this writing: The Big Bopper Slots.
The Big Bopper Slots – RTG
RealTime Gaming released the Big Bopper Slots in April 2016. This machine has 6 reels, 729 lines, multipliers, wild symbols, scatter symbols, free spins, and a bonus game. The Big Bopper was the Fifties rock-n-roll star who died in the same plane crash which killed Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens.
Jason’s Quest – Genesis Gaming
Jason’s Quest is based on the tales of Jason and the Argonauts from Greek mythology. This gaming machine has 5 reel, 25 paylines, and a host of in-game features: wilds, scatters, free spins, multipliers, and bonus games. It is a non-progressive slot machine.
The Great Ming Empire – Playtech
Playtech released a Chinese-themed slot machine in March 2016 called “The Great Ming Empire”. It is based on the Ming Dynasty, which lasted from 1368 to 1644.
The Great Ming era is considered by historians as one of the great eras of orderly government and social stability in history. It is also known for the construction of the Forbidden City, as well as the era when the Ming Vases were created. The Great Ming Empire Slot has 5 reels, 5 paylines, wild symbols, scatter symbols, a bonus game, and multipliers. Its top fixed jackpot is 2000 coins.
99 Riches – IGT Interactive
99 Riches Slots is a progressive jackpot game which was released by IGT in March 2016. It has 5 reels, 243 paylines, wild symbols, scatters, and free spins. Like Great Ming Slots, its theme is China.
Pirate Treasures Deluxe Slot – Playson
Pirates Treasures Deluxe is the latest pirate-themed slot machine from Playson Gaming, which was founded by Adam Daniel in 2014. Screen symbols from Pirates Treasure remind me of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise, if you want a point of reference. The slot machine has 5 reels, 21 paylines, wilds, scatters, multipliers, and free spins. Its jackpot is 5000 coins.
Players might not have heard of Playson Gaming, so I’ll give what I know about the company. Playson is licensed and regulated in Malta, Alderney, and the United Kingdom. A number of its slot machines have a return-to-player (RTP) of 96%, so players should not overlook these games, simply because they are unaware of the company.
Frankenslot’s Monster – Betsoft
Frankenslot’s Monster was released by Betsoft in March 2016. Betsoft is a US-friendly software designer which has been around since 2001. Betsoft, like Net Entertainment, is known for its beautifully rendered 3D video slots. Frankenslot’s Monster is another amazing-looking 3D slot, complete with the Frankenstein Monster (in overalls), a steampunk Igor, and a creepy eye-in-a-jar as screen symbols. This gaming machine has 5 reels, 20 paylines, wilds, scatters, multipliers, free spins, and a bonus game. Its top jackpot is 1000 coins.
Titanic Slot – WMS Gaming (Williams Interactive)
Titanic Slot is a licensed slot machine based on James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster, Titanic, which is still the 2nd-highest grossing movie in history. Titanic starred Leonardo DiCaprio as “Jack” and Kate Winslet as “Rose”, in a film which convinced many fans to buy box office tickets many times. This is a big deal from WMS Gaming, and it should be a hugely successful slot machine.
Titanic Licensed Slots has 5 reels, 25 paylines, a wild symbol, a scatter symbol, free spins, and a bonus game. While it has no progressive jackpot, its fixed jackpot is 100,000 coins.
Aloha Cluster Pays – Net Entertainment
Net Ent released Aloha! Cluster Pays Slots in March 2016 as the latest in a growing number of 6-reel slot machines. Hawaii is the theme of the slot, which has the usual top-rated NetEnt artwork. Aloha: Cluster Pays has 6 reels, 10 paylines, and free spins. It also has the substitution feature, which is also growing in popularity. The jackpot is a whopping 100,000 coins.
New Slots in 2016
A complete list of slot machines which have been released in 2016 can be seen below. Games like SunTide and Peek-a-Book from Microgaming already have been making an impact in the online market. Guns ‘n Roses Slots is a certain to be enduring, though I wonder which members of the band licensed the brand, since they had such a dramatic breakup. Other franchises which inspired slots designers this year include the Wizard of Oz, Gunsmoke, and the Cohen Brothers’ cult classic, The Big Lebowski.
