Cosmic Eclipse is a new NetEnt slot machine that is produced in collaboration with the Betsson Group, to which it will be an exclusive title, at least for a period of time. Previous collaborations saw the title become available globally after half a year and this might be the case with Cosmic Eclipse as well. As for the theme, it’s based on the universe and the various stellar bodies that are part of it, and that’s something that you can see in the game’s symbols.
One of the most fun and exciting slot machines that NetEnt has prepared for release in 2017 is Finn and the Swirly Spin, a slot machine with a quirky Irish theme, where the obvious main character is a leprechaun.
The Deluxe version for Twin Spin is here, and this sequel has been turned into a game which has the Cluster Pays system instead of ways to win, as well as more reels and more symbols on each of its columns. NetEnt improved the game significantly with this new release, especially when it comes to the quality of its graphics, but they’ve kept the same classic theme.
The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays tells you from its title two major things about it, the theme and the way it pays its players. The idea of the mythical paradise which is hidden away somewhere on Earth is coming from an old book, while the cluster pays system is a new one and still not available in too many slot machines.
Planet of the Apes is a NetEnt branded slot release, a game that’s apparently based on the recently launched “War for the Planet of the Apes”, a 2017 science fiction film. It appears that they have put a lot of effort into this game, using the graphics, animations and unique features to turn this into a must play title. One of the obvious things to check out is the use of 10 reels, 5 for each of the two sides (Rise and Dawn), with a total of 40 active lines on them. There will be two types of symbols for the two sides, two scatters, bonus symbols, a Dual and a Rise Bonus games, stacked wilds and free spins. With so many features offered, the rewards couldn’t have been very high, and so the most you can get is $10,000 apparently, offered through scatters.
Emoji Planet is as modern a slot machine as you can get, at least when it comes to the theme. The features and layout it uses aren’t that regular either, so this is one of the slot machines where NetEnt chose to adventure farther than they did with their previous releases. I’m not that happy about the design quality of the slot though, or at least of the style in which they created its look. The slot doesn’t use regular lines, preferring a 6x5 reels look that will pay with the help of clusters of symbols. It’s generous enough with its rewards, offering up to $100,000 and using a wild symbol and five other bonuses that aren’t very difficult to trigger.
The Phantom of the Opera is a game that’s created by NetEnt and offered to all fans of the musical or any of the other movies that were released based on this story. With the action taking place inside a theater, it’s time for us to check out everything else it has to offer, especially feature wise.
Butterfly Staxx is coming to us via NetEnt and it is a beautiful nature themed game, one which obviously has butterflies and flowers showing on most positions on its reels. There are things to set it apart from similarly themed games, and I’m mostly mentioning the paper craft like quality of some of its elements.
Fruit Spin has been designed as a more classic game than most that are part of NetEnt’s collection. The game uses fruit and classic symbols on most of its positions, though with modern versions of those old graphics. It’s one of the few slot machines where I actually enjoyed seeing those very common types of icons.
Copy Cats has been designed as a slot machine that uses as heroes a band of alley cats, funny looking creatures that were designed in an attractive cartoon style, which could be at home at any of the major movie studios. The creator of this design is NetEnt, so the quality of the design shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Part of the Fairytale Legends series, Hansel and Gretel is a slot machine that’s offered by NetEnt. The game follows the story of two young children, as they encounter a witch in the woods. It’s a bit of a cautionary tale for children from the Middle Ages, but it’s still loved and enjoyed today. NetEnt has a full series of fairytales that it puts into slot machine form, and as usual they do a great job with it.
NetEnt is the creator behind Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild, a slot machine where they are taking us deep into ancient jungle forests, in search for the ruins left behind by some long lost civilizations. Some of the graphics seem to indicate this ancient connection, but the better paying symbols are the ones with wild life and flowers.
Wolf Cub might have a baby wolf in the main role, but overall this seems to be mostly a game about the creatures of the forest, as they go through the winter season. The developer being NetEnt, you can naturally expect for high end graphics from it, along with a decent spread of features, but more on that below.
Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist is not just a slot machine with a longer than average title. It’s also a beautifully crafted game, one where the action revolves around the bandits that are trying to rob a train, somewhere in the American Wild West. It’s the typical story for a lot of Western movies, and it’s something that I’ve seen approached in several latest slot machines as well.
Scruffy Duck is a game that looks great and which is inspired by the story of the ugly duckling, the one that turns into a beautiful swan once it grows up. NetEnt seems to have a big focus on fairytales and stories these days, and I like what they’re doing in this area.
Divine Fortune is a release that comes from NetEnt and it is a slot machine where they’ve chosen to focus on creatures from ancient mythology. Relying on Ancient Greece for inspiration, this isn’t one of their more innovative titles, but it does have some advantages as well.
