Settle in for our monthly round-up of fresh new slots this February. We’ve got Norse myths, fast cars and even cats in hats lined up for you. Read on to learn more.
Lucky Little Gods – 1st February
Launched in time to celebrate the Chinese new year, Lucky Little Gods is a seriously cute slot with Manga-inspired design that moves away from the tired, cliched symbols of the Far East like lanterns and fireworks.
On these reels, you’ll see Chinese symbols interspersed with four different original characters, drawn in the highly popular cartoon style. The slot is set in a cloud-filled wonderland in the sky and four different bonus features keep gameplay exciting as well as visually appealing. This slot has a 5×3 reel structure and 243 ways to win. Keep an eye out for the Treasure Pot Scatter feature, heralded by a sleepy, animated piece of golden cookware.
Asgardian Stones – 22nd February
NetEnt consistently releases solid, enjoyable slots, with a range of themes. This latest slot release sees the player explore a world that this provider likes to return to, that of Norse myth. Indeed, Hall of Gods, one of the world’s most popular jackpot games, is also a NetEnt production that has the same theme. That’s obviously a winning combination!
This slot, however, is less about the Norse deities themselves but about their stone representations. The aesthetic here will remind animation fans of some important works in animated film, including Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire and even Cartoon Saloon’s gem, Song of the Sea.
Displayed in a 5×3 format, Asgardian Stones offers plenty of exciting features, the Colossal stone being chief among them. The unusually long trailer from NetEnt reveals more.
Hotline – 5th February
This month’s other release from NetEnt also works on a previously explored theme. Hotline is a car-based slot, like that other popular title Drive: Multiplier Mayhem. However, that’s where the similarities end. While Drive is all about modern cars with cutting-edge technology, Hotline revives the 70s era, complete with vintage vehicles and that easily recognisable sepia tone and awesome afros.
With a 5×3 reel format and an intriguing 97.04% volatility, this slot is sure to take the checkered flag for NetEnt.
Gem Rocks – 22nd February
What do you get if you cross a slot game with Candy Crush and have Yggdrasil take the reins on design? Gem Rocks is probably the closest we’ll ever get to that unusual combination!
Yggdrasil’s unmistakable style is on full display with Gem Rocks, which is both visually appealing and an engaging game. It is less character-driven than some of their other titles but will certainly appeal to players who enjoyed Tetris back in the day.
It follows a 6×4 reel format and has been described as being of medium volatility. We can’t wait to get our hands on this one!
Kaiju – 22nd February
Another Asian-inspired slot from ELK Studios, whose title Hong Kong Tower made quite the splash last year. This one takes place in a bustling metropolis that’s being troubled by a massive Kaiju, a behemoth of a beast commonly seen in Japanese monster attack movies.
The ELK Studios version features a sharply dressed cyborg protagonist, lasers shooting across the screen and extending reels, all in the effort to defeat one scaly monster after the other.
Aristocats – 27th February
This game provider has been known to release some… dubious titles (we’re looking at you, Twerk) but this one seems like an interesting combination of themes. Cats in fancy dress? Yes please!
We don’t know much about Aristocats just yet and we’ll have to wait until the end of the month to find out more but based on the premise alone, it seems like an excellent mashup. And in an inspired marketing effort, Endorphina previewed the game late last year in an unusual way. Check out the video below to see how they did it.
