Newest Slot Games List 2019

2018 has been an impressive year for slot machines, and 2019 looks like it’s going to be even better. New slot machines for 2019 are already announced in some cases, at least for the first couple of months, and we can see an impressive list of titles which will be coming out. Upcoming slot games in 2019 promise to be every bit as impressive as those from the previous year, with new features, modern graphics and even bigger potential payouts promised for them.

With new developers entering this market, players can expect more competition, both in the number of new slots for 2019 and in their quality. We’re taking a look at these new games as soon as they’re released, sometimes even in advance of their launch, we review them and let you know how good they are.

Spinsane
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: NetEnt
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 27
  • Mobile: Yes

Wolves are prowling the casino, getting ready for the right moment… to spin! Spinsane™, the latest offering from NetEnt™, is a 5-reel, 3-row, 27-line video slot based on classic stepper mechanics. The look and feel of the game brings the ultimate slot machine experience. Suspense effects inject a serious dose of excitement into the game

Wild Genie
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: Stakelogic
  • RTP: 96.36%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

Also known as Wild Genie & The Three Wishes, this new Stakelogic release is a very well designed game, quite uncharacteristic for this developer. Add a good RTP and the slot’s medium/high volatility, and I think you’ve got here a game that you can enjoy playing. Theme wise, you will get the story of Aladdin and the Genie, a fairly popular choice for slot machines.

Magic Oak
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Habanero
  • RTP: 98.07%
  • Reels: 4
  • Lines:
  • Mobile: Yes

Magic Oak is one of the cuter-looking slot machines that I’ve had the pleasure of trying out lately, and it’s a Habanero release. The developer is no stranger to well-designed slots, and it’s something that can be said about the majority of the games I’ve seen them release so far. They’re trying something new with Magic Oak, the slot machine offering a different layout and features, compared with their other titles.

Viking Voyage
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: BetSoft
  • RTP: 96.12%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Viking Voyage is a game that aims to take advantage of the popularity that the Viking nation has among players and viewers alike, as both slots and movies benefit when they have such stories to tell. It’s a Betsoft game as well, so the graphics are excellent, something that’s been true of a lot of their games so far.

Lucky Gems Deluxe
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Stakelogic
  • RTP: 94.56%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Lucky Gems Deluxe is here, and this new Stakelogic slot machine will feature some interesting mechanics, as well as the possibility to play on up to four machines at the same time. Theme wise, it will not be that interesting, but the leprechaun can still be OK as a main character, provided that the game delivers on other fronts. This one looks like it does that.

Mega Dragon
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Red Tiger Gaming
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 8
  • Lines:
  • Mobile: Yes

Mega Dragon’s proposal is one that is not that unusual for our days. Chinese themed slot machines like this one have exploded in numbers over the last couple of years, but luckily the story/graphics are only part of the offer here, and Mega Dragon gets a lot more exciting once you take a look at its features and potential rewards. As for the name of the developer that’s giving us this slot, it’s Red Tiger, a company that has a fairly large number of Asian-facing slots out already.

Chi
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: ELK
  • RTP: 96.00%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 27
  • Mobile: Yes

Chi is a game which appears to borrow quite a bit from Chinese culture, and the graphics used inside might be familiar to you because of that. It’s still an excellent game, both to look at and play, as you’re about to discover from our review of this Elk Studios video slot.

Arcane Reel Chaos
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: NetEnt
  • RTP: 96.81%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

A superhero themed game, with awesome graphics, Arcane Reel Chaos is one of the impressive releases from NetEnt, a developer that has already made a name for itself based on the power of their games. Help superheroes like Psyop, Chronos, Zero.x or Flare fight DeepPockets, the game’s villain, and in the process there will be quite a few good features as well to enjoy.

Mahjong 88
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: Play'n'Go
  • RTP: 96.62%
  • Reels: 8
  • Lines:
  • Mobile: Yes

Mahjong 88 is a game from Play n GO which delivers a fairly unique theme, being the only slot machine that I know to have the game of Mahjong for inspiration. It’s well designed, as are all titles coming from this developer, and it uses a unique set of features, making the gameplay interesting.

Irish Frenzy
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: Blueprint Gaming
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Irish Frenzy isn’t too subtle about the theme that’s offered in its case, being a slot which has the leprechaun for a hero. It’s one of the Blueprint Gaming releases, and it appears to be quite generous with its prizes, provided that they do trigger.

Spy Rise
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Playtech
  • RTP: 95.02%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 40
  • Mobile: Yes

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to spin the reels of this slot machine, trying your luck for the top prize of up to $1,000,000 and enjoying the spy themed graphics. Joke aside, Spy Rise is a beautifully designed slot machine from Playtech, one of my favorites in terms of graphics, at least from their collection.

Sky Queen
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Playtech
  • RTP: 96.50%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 50
  • Mobile: Yes

Sky Queen is a game where we explore the Mayan civilization, and we take a look at their art and culture. This Playtech slot has quite a bit more to offer, than just Mayan style graphics, as it also has several fixed jackpots and features which should make the action interesting, all while going after a decent-sized prize.

Hall of the Mountain King
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: Quickspin
  • RTP: 96.29%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

A game which features awesome graphics and a fantasy story that seems to revolve around trolls and orcs, Hall of the Mountain King has exciting top payout to offer, as well as a decent RTP and high volatility.

Rich Geyser
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Microgaming
  • RTP: 97.36%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Rich Geyser is a game that’s going to be available at Microgaming casinos, being an exclusive release offered by a partner of theirs, Plank Gaming. The theme here relates to drilling for oil, and it’s a relatively simple release with a couple of standard features included.

Wild Mantra
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Yggdrasil
  • RTP: 96.30%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

Wild Mantra is one of the few games that I’ve seen inspired by the Buddhist religion, and it works well as a slot machine, particularly when it has a design as good as what Yggdrasil Gaming has created here. It’s not the type of game with huge potential that has been popular lately, but it does look good, and that might be enough to make it fun for a lot of players.

5 Lions Gold
  • Release: Jun 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.52%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

5 Lions Gold, coming from Pragmatic Play, is a release which offers high volatility, ways to win and a Chinese theme that’s fairly well designed. The game doesn’t stand out if you look at graphics/theme alone, but it has its good sides as well, and you get to find out all about them from our review. This is a sequel for another Pragmatic Play release, and in the Gold version we get a jackpot as well, among other things.

Cowboy Treasure Deluxe
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Play'n'Go
  • RTP: 96.37%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 5
  • Mobile: Yes

The typical cowboy/Wild West style story is being told in this Play n GO slot, and it ends up being a game with excellent graphics, big progressive jackpots and a theme that most players can appreciate. Cowboy Treasure Deluxe is the name that they’ve given to it.

Golden Lucky Pigs
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Booming Games
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Launched in 2019, Golden Lucky Pigs is a Booming Games slot machine which was dedicated to the Year of the Pig. The game’s Chinese style theme is not an unusual choice for a slot machine, and the features/options offered inside aren’t out of the norm either.

Island Heat
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Green Tube
  • RTP: 95.00%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 30
  • Mobile: Yes

Island Heat is a game that gives us tropical inspired graphics, up to 1,000x the stake payouts and several cool features, about which we will talk more below. This Novomatic release is one of many that you will find in this developer’s collection.

Lady of Avalon
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Barcrest
  • RTP: 96.00%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Lady of Avalon is the latest Camelot themed slot machine that is released, and it’s a slot machine which comes via Barcrest. The game has some elements which are borrowed from the Book of Ra style gameplay, but it has its own things to offer as well. All this, and the game comes with the usual average-looking graphics that Barcrest tends to use in every title.

Smoking Gun
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Rival
  • RTP: 94.93%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 50
  • Mobile: Yes

Smoking Gun is a Rival Gaming video slot, telling us a typical Wild West story, and using excellent graphics to do it. It’s the type of game whose lack of originality in theme selection can be forgiven, since it’s such great fun for players, especially when the graphics click together. It’s definitely the case with Smoking Gun.

Marco Polo
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Red Rake Gaming
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 30
  • Mobile: Yes

Marco Polo’s story has fascinated us for a long time, and this has helped it reach us in other ways as well, being turned into movies or TV series, among others. Now, we have a slot machine which relies on the same story, and it’s got a mix of Asian and European influences, as it is appropriate for such a theme. It’s a Red Rake slot machine, which also has some exciting multipliers to offer.

Caishens Cash
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.50%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

In a setting which we’ve seen a lot of times in the past, inspired by Chinese fortunes and culture, Caishen’s Cash is offering excellent payouts, good features and high quality graphics, just what I’ve come to expect from Pragmatic Play.

Sakura Dragon
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Playson
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

With inspiration which comes from the beautiful cherry blossom, Sakura Dragon is one of several slot machines that use this type of imagery, but what’s special about it is that it incorporates dragons inside as well. The game is one of Playson’s titles and it is one of their newer releases.

Narcos
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: NetEnt
  • RTP: 96.23%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

Narcos, a branded slot machine that NetEnt has been hinting at for quite some time, has finally been made available. It looks impressive right off the bat, as a slot machine with ways to win, along with plenty of cool features, but only average top jackpots, being a medium volatility title.

Indian Ruby
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Merkur Gaming
  • RTP: 96.19%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Indian Ruby, a Merkur slot, seems to draw inspiration from the passion that this country has for jewelry, and from the magnificent pieces that they own. The ruby is the star here, while in other icons you will find elements from the Indian culture, something that not a lot of slot machines have tried to offer so far.

Dragon Shard
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Microgaming
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 40
  • Mobile: Yes

Dragon Shard is a slot machine which will be exclusive to Microgaming powered casinos, and it’s been developed by a small collaborator of theirs, called Stormcraft Studios. Other slots that they’ve created for Microgaming include Fortunium and Agent Jane Blonde Returns.

Our Days
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Microgaming
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

If you’re a fan of Japanese manga, then this new Microgaming release could be a great game for you to play. Our Days features manga style graphics, and it uses a love story as inspiration as well. It’s definitely not a typical theme/design for Microgaming, but that just adds something different to their collection.

Pinata Fiesta
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: iSoftBet
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Mexico appears to be quite a fun destination for both people interested in going in a vacation there, and for video slot players looking for an interesting game. There are a lot of Mexican themed slots out, and Pinata Fiesta is one more that comes out, this time from iSoftBet. It’s a game which incorporates parties and the use of the pinata, in this case filled with prizes, rather than candy.

Lucky Stripes
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: iSoftBet
  • RTP: 95.92%
  • Reels: 3
  • Lines: 1
  • Mobile: Yes

Lucky Stripes is a simple game at its core, a 3-reel title which doesn’t offer all that many features, but iSoftBet casinos made sure that it also comes with some cool extra options, for those players that want something different from their classics.

Peters Universe
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: GameArt
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 100
  • Mobile: Yes

Peter Pan’s story has been popular and it’s likely to be known by most slot machine players, so the presence of this theme, in a casino game which appears to put Neverland’s location in the future, is likely to get quite a bit of attention. GameArt is the creator of this slot machine, which offers awesome graphics and some other cool bonuses, that we will talk about below.

Star Gems: 5 Wilds
  • Release: Feb 2019
  • Soft: Booongo
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

A sequel to a video slot which was offered by Booongo in 2018, Star Gems: 5 Wilds is presented as a game which offers even more features, and which can be quite exciting, especially thanks to a high RTP that’s mentioned. It’s not a very elaborate story, with its classic symbols and gems for its symbols, but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be exciting to play.

Celtic Football Club
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Blueprint Gaming
  • RTP: 95.27%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Celtic Football Club is just what it sounds like, a slot machine which is themed around one of the most popular football clubs in Scotland. Founded over 130 years ago, the club is still going strong and has over 100 trophies won in time, with plenty of fans following their progress. This is a Blueprint Gaming release, a slot where you can win big payouts, but there are downsides to the gameplay style of the game as well.

Jamboree Jubilee
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Edict
  • RTP: 96.18%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Edict is offering us in Jamboree Jubilee a slot machine that is all about having fun. The term jamboree signifies this, a gathering of people and a lot of fun that’s being had, and in this particular case it’s through music that all this excitement is happening.

Wolf Legend: Megaways
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Blueprint Gaming
  • RTP: 96.21%
  • Reels: 6
  • Lines: 117,649
  • Mobile: Yes

Wolf Legend follows in the footsteps of quite a few other slot machines, all of them using the very popular Megaways system and offering a huge potential reward, of up to 50,000x the stake. In terms of potential, it’s clear why the Megaways slots have started becoming popular lately.

Fishin Frenzy: Megaways
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Blueprint Gaming
  • RTP: 96.00%
  • Reels: 6
  • Lines: 15,625
  • Mobile: Yes

Blueprint Gaming is releasing yet another slot machine in the Megaways category, and with Fishin Frenzy they appear to be trying to go after the hearts of anglers everywhere. It’s more of a simple video slot, compared with other Blueprint slot releases, but it’s still interesing and I think you will be quite happy with the payout potential that exists there.

Vampire Fortunes
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Green Tube
  • RTP: 95.00%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

A game that will mix vampires and treasures might not sound like a terribly unique title for the slots category, but given the quality at which Vampire Fortunes has been crafted, I’d say that GreenTube / Novomatic did an excellent job with it. It’s going to have much more than just pretty graphics to show off on those reels, so definitely give this one a chance.

Gun Slinger: Fully Loaded
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Blueprint Gaming
  • RTP: 96.50%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

The Wild West fantasy is one that many share, and it’s a good reason why Westerns have been so popular in the past. They might not be as common these days, but that doesn’t mean that people stopped liking the genre. Plenty of Western style slot machines are available these days, and Gun Slinger: Fully Loaded is just one example of a new title in this category, and a well-designed one at that.

Dr Fortuno
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Yggdrasil
  • RTP: 96.20%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Dr Fortuno looks like a game which likes to mix things up, and it does this by using mostly magic and circus inspired graphics. To be fair, this is more of a magic themed slot than anything else, but it almost looks like it’s a troupe that creates the show, as it includes not just Dr Fortuno, but also acts with Night Twins, Fire Head or Water Witch. It’s one of the Yggdrasil Gaming slots, and it’s got several cool features to show off as well.

Devils Number
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Red Tiger Gaming
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 30
  • Mobile: Yes

Devil's Number is a game that’s dedicated to 666, the number which is considered the devil’s own. You have a Red Tiger Gaming game in this case, a slot machine which delivers decent-looking cartoon graphics and a range of features that end up paying well.

La Kaffee Bar
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Microgaming
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

If you love coffee, or just Microgaming slots in general, then a game like La Kaffee Bar might be just the thing for you. This slot machine is going to be available at Microgaming casinos in 2019, it’s designed to offer a coffee shop based theme, along with some exciting features, and we’re going to talk all about it in our review.

Mount Mazuma
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Habanero
  • RTP: 97.98%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243-100,000
  • Mobile: Yes

Mount Mazuma is one of the more exciting new Habanero releases, a slot machine which promises up to 100,000 ways to win, and along the way you also get to enjoy its cartoon style graphics. The action will revolve around a tropical island, where a volcano is set to erupt with cash prizes. Expect plenty of fruits from it, but it’s not going to be the usual annoying classic spread.

Pride and Prey
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: WMS
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

A pride is what you call a group of lions, and so this is a game with a wildlife theme that’s taking us to Africa. We have lions on one side, and some of the wild creatures that are their prey on the other, but overall the wildlife theme with the African connection is one that we know from other slots, and it’s quite enjoyable. This time, we’re looking at a slot release from WMS.

Casino Charms
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: Playtech
  • RTP: 96.07%
  • Reels: 6
  • Lines: 80
  • Mobile: Yes

Casino Charms appears to be focusing on what happens on the casino floor. As such, it will show off various images that are gambling related, but it will not neglect showing beautiful women as well. It’s not a typical classic game, though it might look like one in part. This is also a Playtech slot machine.

Books and Pearls
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Gamomat
  • RTP: 96.06%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Books & Pearls is coming in as a pirate-themed slot machine, and it’s a Gamomat release that doesn’t do that bad, if you’re the type of player to enjoy good graphics. The theme is popular enough, that the game does need to differentiate itself through something, and Books & Pearls manages to do that, to some extent.

Super Star Turns
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Barcrest
  • RTP: 98.00%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 40
  • Mobile: Yes

Super Star Turns comes from an old-fashioned developer, Barcrest, and it has the look of a game that could be described the same way. It uses a Wheel of Fortune style for some of its major features, along with mostly luxury/game show themed graphics on its reels.

Enchanted Eyes: Big Hit Bonanza
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Ainsworth
  • RTP: 94.31%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

The latest release from Ainsworth is Enchanted Eyes: Big Hit Bonanza, a slot machine which aims to offer some decent sized rewards, though with the RTP being the weak point, something we can see immediately.

Scarab Queen
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: Playtech
  • RTP: 96.50%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Taking us to Ancient Egypt and with the action revolving around beautiful Cleopatra and scarab beetles, this new Playtech slot doesn’t show much originality to start with, but things start picking up once you check out some of its features and prize potential.

Bombs
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Playtech
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Bombs is clearly not your typical casino slot machine, but that doesn’t mean that it’s unique in every single way. On the contrary, it relies on a pirate theme which has seen heavy use in slots, but at least it manages to turn it into a pro, not a con. It’s a Playtech release with awesome graphics and unique features, which offers you quite a few opportunities to have fun.

Vikings Fortune Hold and Win
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Playson

  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

In a game with a cool Viking theme, awesome graphics and a very long list of features, we’re also seeing some exciting top rewards that may come our way, under the right conditions. The game that makes all this possible is Playson’s new title, Vikings Fortune: Hold and Win.

Volcano Eruption Extreme
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: NextGen
  • RTP: 95.41%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

Volcano Eruption Extreme is one of the new slot machines from NextGen, and as you can tell, it’s the Extreme edition for the original Volcano Eruption. You get an improved game, with big potential payouts to give away, but which keeps the same graphics for the most part, placing the action on an island where a volcano is about to erupt.

Spirits of the Valkyrie
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Green Tube
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Part of the Green Tube/Novomatic collection, Spirits of the Valkyrie is a slot machine that manages to deliver excellent features, while using a theme that’s a bit overused, yet players still show that they love it. I’m talking about a Norse mythology themed slot machine, which uses the famous Valkyries as main characters.

Pyramid Fortunes
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Green Tube
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

Going to the times of Ancient Egypt isn’t that difficult, not these days, when there are hundreds of different slot machines to feature a theme that is inspired by that time period. Pyramid Fortunes is one more game that’s added to this rich mix, and we get it from Green Tube/Novomatic in this case.

The Flash
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Playtech
  • RTP: 95.14%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 50
  • Mobile: Yes

The Flash’s story, in its comic book form, is being told in this new branded release from Playtech. It’s a story about fast superheroes and villains, and you’re seeing them all as characters on the reels of this slot. The graphics are excellent, it’s a DC Comics licensed game, and it has cool jackpots to offer as well.

The Easter Egg edition for Super Duper Crazy Chicken is here, and it’s a slot machine which keeps a lot of the original intact, while adding some interesting Easter related graphics, and that’s about it. You can find this one in Gamomat’s collection, the developer offering several titles with similar names.

Royal Seven XXL Easter Egg

  • Soft: Gamomat
  • RTP: 96.11%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Royal Seven XXL is now available in the Easter Egg edition, along with several other slot machines which are getting the same treatment from Gamomat. The company came up with a different experience from these slots, even changing the number of lines, so this is more than just a simple Easter themed version.

Ramses Book Easter Egg
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Gamomat
  • RTP: 96.15%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Ramses Book is the Gamomat version of the Book of Ra slot machine, a hugely popular game, both in land-based and online casinos. They pretty much cloned the mechanics, so if you’re a fan of the genre, you know what to expect. In this particular case, you’re looking at the Easter Egg edition for this slot machine, so expect a mix of graphics which rely on both Ancient Egypt and Easter Eggs for inspiration.

Hit It Big
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: ELK
  • RTP: 96.00%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 5
  • Mobile: Yes

One more developer jumps on the High volatility bandwagon, and this time we’re looking at ELK Studios and their newly released slot, called Hit It Big. It’s a slot machine which is based on a retro style TV game show, being designed at the usual high standard that I expect to see from this developer.

Lara Croft: Temples and Tombs
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Microgaming

Lara Croft: Temples and Tombs is a slot that’s available at Microgaming, the developer that started the Tomb Raider series 15 years ago. They continue this series now, under license, with a new exciting release that looks great and has a lot to offer feature wise as well.

Pots of Luck
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: 1x2 Gaming
  • RTP: 96.00%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

As far as the story goes, Pots of Luck is not exactly going to tell us something we haven’t heard before. The slot relies on typical Irish style graphics, which take into account both the luck that’s considered a given for that country, and the leprechaun story, along with his famous pot of gold. The game we’re seeing here is coming from 1x2 Gaming.

Wilhelm Tell
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Yggdrasil
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

The story of Wilhelm Tell now comes to us in the form of a slot machine, which you can find at casinos promoting Yggdrasil Gaming. It’s a story that’s told in Switzerland, and it revolves around a marksman. Featuring an excellent soundtrack, the game has the usual modern graphics that we see in every Yggdrasil release, and when you add its big potential as well, you should have enough good reasons to want to check it out.

Incas Treasure
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Tom Horn
  • RTP: 96.00%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

The civilization of the Inca is once again the main focus of a slot machine, one that comes from Tom Horn Gaming in this case. They managed to craft a good game here, graphics wise at least, and it offers a low volatility experience which should make it a fun choice for someone to spend time with.

Triple Jokers
  • Release: June 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.51%
  • Reels: 3
  • Lines: 5
  • Mobile: Yes

Triple Jokers might be a new release that Pragmatic Play offers, but it’s definitely not trying to feature modern features or graphics. It’s mostly a classic-style game, one where the Jokers are main characters, and where 7s or bells don’t look out of place at all. Going beyond those basic graphics, we find a game with decent RTP and OK potential.

Neptune Rising
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Microgaming
  • RTP: 95.92%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Neptune Rising is a collaboration between Plank Gaming and Microgaming, the developer being the former, while Microgaming gets exclusive rights, allowing them to use that game at the casinos they power. It’s a game with high volatility, decent RTP and some cool extra features for the free spins, so it has plenty to offer.

Contact
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Play'n'Go
  • RTP: 96.55%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 7
  • Mobile: Yes

The Aztecs, and perhaps some connection that they’re supposed to have to an Alien civilization, are the heroes of this slot from Play n GO. As the developer has often proven in the past, they’re perfectly capable of designing a modern-looking slot machine. Contact is an excellent example of that, the slot having a unique setup and beautiful graphics.

Trigger Happy
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: RTG
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 30
  • Mobile: Yes

Fans of the Wild West get a new slot machine which seems dedicated to them, and it’s called Trigger Happy. This is a slot machine that comes via Realtime Gaming, and it’s got excellent graphics, plenty of paylines for wins to form on, as well as two progressive jackpots that could trigger at any time.

Knights
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Red Rake Gaming
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5 - 6
  • Lines: 5
  • Mobile: Yes

The search for the Holy Grail continues in Knights, long after Camelot’s time. The game we get from Red Rake features a unique setup, which involves a 6th magic reel, along with high quality graphics, but you can learn more about it from our review.

Durian Dynamite
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Quickspin
  • RTP: 96.22%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Durian Dynamite is a game to remember, in more ways than one, but its biggest pro is the unique theme that it offers. Though it’s still a fruit themed game in the end, with many of the classics present on its reels, it also features a focus on the smelliest fruit in the world, the Durian. It’s a Quickspin slot machine with 3D graphics of the usual high quality that I expect to see from them.

Hide and Seek
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Merkur Gaming
  • RTP: 96.07%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

A game of cops and robbers is available for you here, in Hide & Seek. This is a Merkur video slot, which has high volatility, and accordingly it can pay fairly well. Nicer graphics than in past slots which were offered by this developer, will insure that this is a Merkur game to remember.

Dragon Pearls: Hold & Win
  • Release: Feb 2019
  • Soft: Booongo
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

With rewards which will reach 1,000x the stake, Dragon Pearls: Hold & Win promises to offer some interesting mechanics and a gameplay style which can be different from what’s available from its competitors. It’s a new Booongo slot machine, and it’s got a Chinese-style theme.

Crazy Bananas
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Booming Games
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

One of the new Booming Games releases, Crazy Bananas is a slot machine which is indeed dedicated to the very popular banana, but I haven’t noticed any craziness going on with this game, so that first part doesn’t check out. You get a jungle themed slot machine for the most part, featuring things like leaves and fruits from that kind of location, and it’s fairly well designed.

Master of Atlantis
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Blueprint Gaming
  • RTP: 96.08%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 40
  • Mobile: Yes

Master of Atlantis is a slot machine that is dedicated to Poseidon, the god of the sea. It’s a Blueprint Gaming casino slot, and it’s going to feature both cool graphics and interesting features, something that you will actually discover that it is available from most games they release.

Midas Golden Touch
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Thunderkick
  • RTP: 96.10%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 15
  • Mobile: Yes

The touch of Midas, which would turn regular objects into gold, has been an inspiration for other developers of slot machines already, but we don’t mind seeing the story covered again, particularly in a game like this one, where payouts go so high. Expect for Midas Golden Touch to be a highly volatile slot, and look for it at casinos which offer Thunderkick games.

Imperial Fruits: 5 Lines
  • Release: Feb 2019
  • Soft: Playson
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 5
  • Mobile: Yes

One of quite a few Playson slot machines which offer a fruit theme and very simple gameplay, Imperial Fruits: 5 Lines is obviously going to have 5 paylines. The imperial connection is only visible in one symbol, but more on that below.

300 Shields Extreme
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: NextGen
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

A very popular video slot from NextGen Gaming, the original 300 Shields is now getting an Extreme version as well, one where wins as high as 17,773x the stake are not out of the question. The graphics have remained pretty much the same, with the same Spartan inspired symbols as before, but they’ve improved the features and made them a lot more profitable, so the game is even better now.

Phoenix Reborn
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Play'n'Go
  • RTP: 96.50%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 40
  • Mobile: Yes

Phoenix Reborn will feature Aztec-inspired graphics, and in typical Play n GO fashion, it offers excellent graphics and features to the players willing to give it a try. The developer has a good selection of slots out already, and Phoenix Reborn proves once again that they can make even an Aztec themed slot look interesting, despite how common a theme this is.

Ancient Troy
  • Release: Feb 2019
  • Soft: Endorphina
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

A beautifully crafted new game, which comes from Endorphina, Ancient Troy tells us the famous story from Ancient Greek legends, and it does it while paying as much as 1,000x the stake in its regular spins. You will encounter good features as well, but it’s the design that will first get your attention, as it is on par with what’s available from the best developers around.

Medusa Megaways
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: NextGen
  • RTP: 95.00%
  • Reels: 6
  • Lines: 117,649
  • Mobile: Yes

The very popular Medusa series is getting a new game added to it, and it’s based on the Megaways system. With the license acquired from Big Time Gaming, NextGen proceeded to offer their player base a Megaways slot of their own, and using the Ancient Greek mythology theme that they already knew and loved.

Fruit Bat Crazy
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: BetSoft
  • RTP: 95.22%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

Fruit Bat Crazy is one of fruit-themed slots that Betsoft Gaming offers, and for them it’s not quite the cinematic style experience that they’ve often offered in the past. It’s going to offer a good design though, and the fans of this type of theme will enjoy the way that the classic fruits have been modernized here.

Book of Queen
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Amatic
  • RTP: 96.95%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Book of Queen is one of two slot machines that Amatic has released at the same time, the other being called Book of Lords. These are identical games, in pretty much every way, the only difference being in the symbol with the main character, and in the name. It’s also a Book of Ra clone, using the same type of features as this very popular land-based slot machine, and using part of its name as well.

Book of Lords
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Amatic
  • RTP: 96.71%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

One of two Ancient Egypt themed slot machines which Amatic has released simultaneously, Book of Lords is not that much different from the other title, which is called Book of Queen. Some minor differences do exist, such as the top jackpot symbol showing a female modern adventurer here, plus the RTP is slightly lower, though it’s not clear why that is.

I Am The Law
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: 1x2 Gaming
  • RTP: 96.00%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

I Am The Law appears to be a take on the classic Wild West story, of the law man that’s going against a villain. The focus is clearly on the side of the law in this case, the sheriff is the main character, and so I think many will enjoy this 1X2 Gaming production. The slot does have other things to offer, besides a classic story, so keep reading to find out how good it really is.

Sweet Bonanza
  • Release: June 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.51%
  • Reels: 6
  • Lines:
  • Mobile: Yes

Sweet Bonanza is not your typical slot machine, and that’s great, as far as I’m concerned. Coming from Pragmatic Play, a developer with plenty of experience in this field, I think that you will agree that it looks good and thanks to its very high potential, it can also be fun to play, especially since it’s only a Medium volatility slot.

Pirate Gold
  • Release: May 2019
  • Soft: Pragmatic Play
  • RTP: 96.50%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 40
  • Mobile: Yes

There is a good reason why players love pirate themed slot machines, and Pirate Gold shows us why. The game features some excellent graphics, has huge rewards to give away, and it’s a high volatility game, a 10 out of 10 in that regard. Pragmatic Play understood that a lot of players are looking for these huge volatility slots with awesome potential, and they’re offering just that type of game here.

Starblast
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Play'n'Go
  • RTP: 96.60%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Starblast is a game that will be taking us to outer space, yet it’s not a science fiction theme that we’re looking at here. It’s mostly going to revolve around symbols with gemstones or classic icons, but it also has a beautiful image of space as a backdrop. This game can be found at Play n Go casinos, being one of their new titles.

Reel Splitter
  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: Microgaming
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 4 - 5
  • Lines: 81 - 243
  • Mobile: Yes

Launched as a collaboration between JFTW (Just For The Win) and Microgaming, with the former in the role of the developer, Reel Splitter is a classic themed slot machine which manages to be quite modern in every other way, giving us a couple of fun features to work with.

Mystery Reels: Megaways
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Red Tiger Gaming
  • RTP: 96.18%
  • Reels: 6
  • Lines: 117,649
  • Mobile: Yes

The Megaways craze has reached Red Tiger Gaming as well, and their first slot machine using this technology is called Mystery Reels. It’s mostly fruit themed, which is slightly disappointing since a little bit of the entertainment value is lost, but on the plus side, you get lots of Megaways and huge potential rewards, so fans of this high volatility style should be happy with it.

Cash Vandal
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Play'n'Go
  • RTP: 96.47%
  • Reels: 4
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Play n Go is going after a more unique experience with Cash Vandal, a slot where they’re not just using fewer reels than you’re used to getting from a modern game, but also excellent graphics mixed with classic elements. Make no mistake about it, they came up with a modern design, even though you see fruits in some of its symbols.

Mega Jackpots: Wheel of Fortune On Air
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: IGT
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Mega Jackpots: Wheel of Fortune On Air is one of the new IGT slots, a release where we once again get a look at the Wheel of Fortune franchise. There are several other slot machines released which have the same focus, but that doesn’t mean that this one can’t be fun, particularly since it also delivers Mega Jackpots.

Valletta: Megaways
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Blueprint Gaming
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 6
  • Lines: 15,625
  • Mobile: Yes

Valletta: Megaways is one of the new casino slots that make use of the highly popular Megaways system, which was originally designed by Big Time Gaming. Blueprint Gaming is among the companies that have acquired the rights to the system, and they did an awesome job so far with the games they’ve released based on it. In this particular case, we have a game inspired by the 1565 siege of Malta, whose capital city is Valletta.

  • Release: Apr 2019
  • Soft: NetEnt
  • RTP: 96.80%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 9
  • Mobile: Yes

After a decade since the original was released, NetEnt announces the new Dead or Alive 2, a slot machine with a Wild West theme, with awesome payout potential and very high volatility. The graphics are a lot better, and there is a lot more bang for your buck, so it’s a game to look into.

Bookie of Odds
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Microgaming
  • RTP: 96.31%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Bookie of Odds is one of the many slot machines that you will see released in Microgaming casinos this year, and it’s all thanks to Triple Edge Studios, one of the company’s partner studios. They’ve developed this game, with a horse racing theme that’s sure to be appreciated by the fans of the genre, but also with big wins, high volatility and decent RTP. The game has lots of arguments to make for itself, and you can find out all about them below.

  • Soft: Ainsworth
  • RTP: 94.16%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 25
  • Mobile: Yes

Pussy Cat, present this year among the new Ainsworth casino slots, is dedicated to a cute black cat, and to its many toys. The game delivers cartoon-style graphics which look cute, while in other areas we have fixed jackpots, a couple of good features and plenty of other pros and cons.

Rise of Dead
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Play'n'Go
  • RTP: 96.00%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 20
  • Mobile: Yes

Play n GO is the company that you’re going to have to look at, as the developer that has worked on Rise of Dead. This is a sequel, the second slot machine they’ve launched in a series, with the first one being Book of Dead. It’s been hugely popular with them, building on the success of a game style which has actually been invented by Novomatic, in Book of Ra. Consider it a clone if you will, but the truth is that it’s still quite fun and it’s been changed quite a bit for this slot.

Book of Immortals
  • Release: Feb 2019
  • Soft: iSoftBet
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

Book of Immortals is one of the more recent Ancient Egypt themed releases, and while iSoftBet picked for this game a very common type of layout, they also insured that it would have something special to offer. This comes through in the design, which is different from some of its competitors, featuring heroes/gods which look almost like comic book characters.

Lucky Streak 3
  • Release: Feb 2019
  • Soft: Endorphina
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 3
  • Lines: 5
  • Mobile: Yes

Lucky Streak 3 is the third game in a classic fruit series which Endorphina has been working on lately. They’ve released these games relatively fast one after the other, so it’s clear that they had a series in mind from the get go. You get a classic feel from this classic, with plenty of fruits appearing on its reels and very simple gameplay.

5 Lucky Lions
  • Release: Feb 2019
  • Soft: Habanero
  • RTP: 96.70%
  • Reels: 6
  • Lines: 88
  • Mobile: Yes

5 Lucky Lions aims to take advantage of the lion’s popularity in Chinese culture, using it in as many symbols as possible on its reels. There are some elements which feel unique as well, and overall the game can be interesting, particularly if the features are considered. This is a Habanero video slot, and as a developer that’s done incredibly well over the years, visually this is one of their weaker titles.

Stellar Spins
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Booming Games
  • RTP: ---
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 10
  • Mobile: Yes

In a game that features space-based graphics, you can almost ignore the fact that it’s got a simple classic theme otherwise, and Stellar Spins is an excellent example of that. The game has a classic theme, mixed in with precious stones, but thanks to the great background showing us a view of Earth from outer space, you can almost ignore that. This is one of the 2019 releases from Booming Games, a developer that’s rapidly expanding its portfolio of slots.

Dwarf Mine
  • Release: Mar 2019
  • Soft: Yggdrasil
  • RTP: 96.80%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 1024 - 16,807
  • Mobile: Yes

Yggdrasil Gaming came up in Dwarf Mine with a slot machine which impresses visually, same as all their other titles, but even better, it’s also going to have a fairly high win potential. The story is secondary, we’ve seen plenty of mining themed slots already, but there are other things about this game which prove exciting, and you can find out what those are from our review.

Jin Ji Bao Xi: Endless Treasure
  • Release: Feb 2019
  • Soft: WMS
  • RTP: 95.73%
  • Reels: 5
  • Lines: 243
  • Mobile: Yes

The promise of treasures is by no means a new one, and so it shouldn’t be a surprise that we’re seeing money mentioned, particularly in a Chinese style slot machine. In this particular case, the game we’re looking at is Jin Ji Bao Xi: Endless Treasure, from WMS.

Slot Development Trends 2019

As we’re reviewing mostly new slot machines, we have a chance to notice the new trends in slot machine development, and we can let you know what they are.

The rise of the Megaways: the number of slot machines and developers which have the license for the Megaways system has exploded over the last half year or so, and in 2019 they will likely increase further. As several developers have obtained the rights to it, they’re each preparing their own series of slots, which include this very popular special feature.

Increased volatility: the public has decided, and they clearly signaled that they love slot machines with ultra-high volatility. The potential to win 10,000x the stake or even a lot higher than that, has proven to be a real popular trend in slot machine development for 2018, and so in 2019 we’re likely to see a lot more slots of this type than in the past.

Great graphics in the upcoming slots 2019: modern graphics, at Full HD quality, have been very easy to find lately, and now the majority of the developers will create at least decent looking slots. It’s not the case for all of them, but since the market is so competitive, most of them are doing their best to launch attractive games.

Mobile-first: this has been going on for a while, and these days I doubt there are slot machines released which aren’t ready to use on a mobile device. I’ve seen an increasing number being created for mobile devices first, with desktops second. I also expect for more slot machines to have a Portrait mode.

Popular 2019 Upcoming Developers

I have no doubt that existing big developers will continue to do well in 2019 as well. NetEnt, Play n GO, Microgaming, these have all done a great job last year. Their new slots for 2019 will be just as good. There are multiple newer developers that are growing fast though, and the likes of Big Time Gaming, Push Gaming and Red Tiger Gaming are making a lasting impression. They’re implementing new features, offering high-end graphics and unique themes, so they offer a lot more.

Popular Slot Games Themes

While the theme of a slot machine isn’t the most important thing about it, I expect for this part to get some attention as well in 2019. A good story, along with the right design, can help make a game interesting to the players. Sometimes this means a branded release, other times it’s just a unique spin on a popular theme. Once again, the market is increasingly crowded and very competitive, so any way to stand out is good. We’re still going to find the usual Irish or Ancient Egypt themes in slot machines in 2019, but there will be new ones as well.

2019 New Slot Features

As Megaways proved in recent times, a cool and exciting feature can make the difference from a regular slot machine and a very popular one. Developers are scrambling to design their own high volatility features and to trademark them, in the hopes that they will catch on. We’ve already seen Big Time Gaming test things out with a new feature called Reel Adventure, while Blueprint has implemented a Free Spin Guarantee, which insures that you’re getting a decent payout whenever you trigger that feature.
