Best New Slot Game Releases May 2017


We’re back with the second instalment of our monthly slots launch announcements! To casino fanatics like us, reading about upcoming slots is a hugely exciting part of the month and we are happy to bring you some titbits about upcoming game launches and titles that have just been released. Enjoy!


This developer has two game releases on the cards in May, one that has already dropped and the other still to launch.

Scruffy Duck – This title was released on the 11th May and it takes the old Ugly Duckling tale into the modern era. A goofy, somewhat geeky duck shares the reels with much cooler fowl while a heap of features awaits!

Copy Cats – Due to drop at the end of the month (23rd May, to be precise), this one is all about the kitties. If you’re a cat lover, you should definitely check this cute slot out and get ready for gameplay that will make you purr with delight.


Microgaming has really outdone itself this month, with a slew of games being distributed through its network this month. For brevity’s sake, check out the bullet list below to find out which games are being released and when as well as which developer created them.

  • Candy Dreams: launched on 3rd May, produced by Microgaming
  • Forbidden Throne: launched on 5th May, produced by Microgaming

Yggdrasil – NEW SLOT UPDATE!

Sunny Shores – Yggdrasil have given us another summer treat by introducing us to Sunny Shores. Going live towards the end of May, we decided to give this article a quick update to include this colourful slot into May’s offerings. Check out the video below to see how relaxing at the beach could net you some hot coin wins!

Power Plant – Their next title is set in the buzzing, electrified world within a power plant. This one was technically released late last month but we thought we’d include it anyway. It’s got an unusual reel structure that takes place within a high-tech chamber filled with electrical gizmos and hazardous looking equipment. Watch your step!

Play’n Go – Aztec Warrior Princess

Journey into the past and into the South American jungles with this slot. The visual elements on this one are just stunning, with symbols that truly evoke the magical history and rich culture of the Aztec. And with plenty of paylines and an RTP on the higher side of average (96.7%), it’s a joy to play.

Betsoft – The Angler

We don’t have much info on this slot, which will be released on the 22nd May. Still, with a name like that, we can safely assume there is some element of fishing involved. We are reel-y looking forward to seeing what Betsoft have prepared for us this month.

Pragmatic play – 3 Kingdoms – Battle of Red Cliffs

This is another slot that was actually released in April – the 25th – it was late enough in the month that we figured we’d include in this month’s overview. Based on a historical naval battle that took place in 208 AD between three warlords, this event ended a dynasty and helped to shape the Middle Kingdom as we know it today. The slot brings together the armadas of Liu Bei, Sun Quan and Cao Cao in a battle for supremacy. The animation and design on this slot are wonderful – expect symbols showing Chinese junks, military flags and amazing temples.
