The summer is not the best of times for online casinos, simply because the number of people shutting themselves up inside and drowning their winter sorrows is low. However, the biggest slot developers do their best to make sure that the players they do have are entertained enough to remain loyal, and that they attract players elsewhere to keep themselves in business.
With that in mind, what slots have recently been released by the biggest names in the business, and what slots can we expect over the next few weeks?
Firehouse Hounds Slot
This 30 pay-line slot was created by IGT and released on the Mr Green casino. As far as we know, it will remain exclusive to that casino throughout the summer, but that could change and it might be available on other IGT casinos soon. With a typical 5×3 layout and a doggy fireman theme, this is a fun slot and one that also has its fair share of bonuses and features. The main feature is the Wild Fire Free Spins Bonus, where you can win a number of free spin and collect big as you do, thanks to the two permanent wild reels.
If you get in quick enough then you can also take advantage of a huge giveaway, which was launched in an effort to promote this new slot and will payout throughout the first two weeks of August.
Microgaming have always been considered to be one of the best developers when it comes to slots. Not only were they there first and not only were they also the first ones to create progressive slots, but as things stand, Microgaming release more new slots than anyone else.
In the last few weeks alone there have been a handful of slots released under the Microgaming brand. Three of the best are Hound Hotel, Kitty Cabana and Pistoleras. These are fairly simple games, but they come with great and generous bonus rounds, as is common with all Microgaming slots. The Pistoleras bonus round in particular is great fun, taking you to a saloon shootout as you blast your way through 9 targets, trying to line-up three symbols in order to win a hatful of cash.
Kitty Cabana and Hound Hotel, on the other hand, are very simple, with one having a feline theme and the other having a canine theme. The bonuses are not too dissimilar, as each of them offer free spins and big multipliers. There are also a number of extra features on both of these slots.
Dinosaur Adventure Slot
If you like Jurassic World, the biggest blockbuster of the summer, then checkout Dinosaur Adventure, which was developed by Genesis Gaming. These guys aren’t as well known as some of the other developers, but they release a number of great games and this is definitely one of them. There are 1024 ways to win with a 5×4 layout and a free spins round that offers upwards of 20 spins. When you factor in a multiplier that can go as high as 64x, you can begin to understand just why this game is so appealing, whether you like dinosaurs or not.
Hansel and Gretel With Hunter Slot
This is based on the movie of the same name, which was a flop to say the least. The slot is not as bad though and is actually considerably more interesting than the film. This is not a new release and has been out for some months, but they have just launched a mobile version of it which is a big landmark for developers iSoftBet, who aren’t usually mentioned in the same breath as many other developers.
