5 awesome slot games that have just been released

Slots have been a casino staple ever since Charles Fey invented the first ‘one armed bandit’ back in 1895. They’ve come on leaps and bounds during the intervening 120-odd years. These days, hundreds of titles are released every week – covering themes from movies, to music and more.

Thanks to advances in digital technology and increasing gaming revenues, the games themselves are also more engaging than ever. Created with cutting-edge graphics and featuring the most life-like characters, the very best slot games hold their own against the latest consumer titles.

It can be a challenge to find the cream of the crop, with so many games being released. That’s where we come in. We’ve kept an eye on all the latest releases and compiled comprehensive list of the top 5.

Read on to find out the slots you should be playing this month – and check out these exciting slots if you’re hungry for more…

Vikings Voyage

This slot is designed for history buffs or fans of the hit Netflix show Vikings. The Scandinavian warriors were famous for their trips to foreign lands where they plundered as much as possible – and you could do that too on Vikings Voyage.

The favoured method of transportation for the sea-faring Vikings was the longboat, and that makes an appearance on this slot. When three or more appear on screen it means free spins – 10 to be exact, which usually give you the chance to double any of your wins.

There is a free version of the slot available to play as well, and when three or more longboats appear you get the chance to re-spin rather than double your wins. Look out for your Viking comrade in reels 1 and 5. He acts as the wild substituting himself for matching symbols to help you to a winning combination. The other symbols to look out for are the chalice, the Goddess and the battle-axe.

Our favourite feature of any slot game is a progressive jackpot, and Vikings has just that so you can always be on the verge of winning big.

El Jackpotto


OK we admit it, the name of this slot game is pretty rubbish – but thankfully, the game itself more than makes up for it. Featuring excellent graphics and an intriguing storyline, El Jackpotto follows the fortunes of a burrito salesman looking to fulfil his dream of becoming the best wrestler in the world.

Your job is to help him realise this dream and make as many pesos as he can to fund that dream. The slot game has 5 reels and 20 paylines along with some great bonuses and wilds to keep you going.

The slot is a little different to others in that it features strange sauce symbols that scatter across the screen to signify bonuses. Listen out for the sound of Senor Burrito as that signifies big money wins.

If you’re really lucky, you can land the Ultimate Luchador Big Money Bonus round where you could win up to 10,000 times your original stake.


The hit TV show Spartacus may have finished five years ago but you can still get your fill of Spartan action with this excellent slot. The glitzy graphics of this game feature plenty of characters from Spartan mythology and history.

Look out for famous warriors that signify multipliers, as well as the temple, which gives you the chance to win 500,000 coins which depending on your stake. The urn and the shield are other bonus symbols to look out for that have a great multiplying boost on your stakes.

Fortunes of Sparta is one of the most widely available slots in this review. Its popularity is perhaps to be expected, given that its return to player percentage is an impressive 97.04%.


There were no silver lions on show in David Attenborough’s recent TV show Dynasties – but there are plenty in this slot. Based in the African plains, this game is payable from 40 pence a spin and has claims to present gamers with 1,024 ways to win.

This Lightning Box production has a whole host of impressive bonus features to boost your payouts. Wild animals such as meerkats, zebra’s hippos a silver lion and the human Masai warrior give you big boosts.

For the lowest of the rewards there are 20 free spins, but the silver lion gives you the chance to multiply your stake by 27. The design of the game is pretty basic, but the vibrant colours of the wilds give it a striking feel.

The African inspired soundtrack in the background is the biggest draw of the game. It’s not repetitive enough to be annoying and unique enough to sound authentic to the ethos of the game. For those of you who have played Raging Rhino before, this game is very similar – it’s much more reliable though and will give you better payout opportunities.


Sometimes slot games can be too ‘in your face’. Too shiny, too loud, too garish, but not this effort from Random Logic. A relaxing piano soundtrack is the background to this musical note inspired game.

Again it’s a big favourite with us as it features a progressive jackpot to keep you hooked and give you the chance to claim a mega win. It is a five reel slot with three rows and ten fixed paylines. The theme of the slot means that the standard symbols you will see are colourful musical notes such as quavers and crotchets.

A mixed pot of musical symbols is the wild that appears on reel 1 and reel 3 that substitutes for any symbol to give you a winning combination. The expanding wild also appears to fill all the positions on a particular reel, giving you a free spin with the wild reel held in place.

This can be repeated up to three times which gives you the chance to get some pretty impressive financial gains. The return to player is a slightly lower 96%, but the progressive jackpot mitigates that low figure.

So there you have it – our pick of the slots for December. Try any of these engaging slots and, such is the immersive power of slot games these days, they might become your favourite game.
