Two new slot machine games appeared this week, what is looking like a pretty prosperous run up to Easter. The first of these titles is Net Entertainment’s water themed Wild Water slot, which went live earlier this week.
Wild Water slot
Wild Water is set in the 1960s, and is playable for just 20p per spin. The title contains the usual 5 reels and 20 paylines format, and offers a plethora of special features, including expanding wilds, scatters, free spins, and two bonus rounds. A non-progressive jackpot slot, Wild Water allows players to win up to 20x their stake in the Surfs Up bonus round, and as much as 200x their stake in the more satisfying Surf Team bonus round.
The free spins round in the Wild Water slot is also particularly special. Players can win up to 60 free spins consecutively in this bonus feature, and landing expanding wilds whenever a wild icon is used to complete a payline. If the player lands a handful of expanding wilds, they could win extremely large sums of money, which offers great value, considering you can play for peanuts in this title.
WMS Gaming also released their own new slot this week. Launched mid-week, the Raging Rhino slot does not feature as classy graphics as Wild Water, though it does have a slightly more entertaining gameplay structure.
Raging Rhino slot
Raging Rhino has an absolutely astounding 4,096 ways to win. That is 4,096 paylines in total, if you are wondering. It is the very first "any way wins" slot released by WMS Gaming, and can be played for just 40p per spin. Naturally, although more expensive than Wild Water, it is far more worthwhile to pay that little bit extra to play.
With an African safari theme (particularly one centred on Rhinos), Raging Rhino sees players start their free spins round with up to 50 free spins awarded. The title also contains multipliers in this free spins round, and during free spins, it is possible to win as much as 750x your stake.
Both of the new slots offer very different styles of gameplay, so it really depends what kind of slot you are after. Lovers of big money slots, with unusual structures and higher costs, will doubtlessly prefer Raging Rhino. Those particular gamers who are after a standard gaming experience, will enjoy Wild Water more.
Ultimately, the choice is yours. However, these two new releases are just the tip of the iceberg, in what is proving to be a very exciting spring and build up to Easter. As summer approaches, one can only imagine the wealth of new slot machine games coming our way. These two new releases were kept exceptionally quiet, so their release is a welcome surprise this week. Yet, we already known of Microgaming’s hotly anticipated T2 (Terminator 2) slot, and Net Ent’s Aliens (based on the movie) slot. Whatever else could possibly be released this March and April, is anybody’s guess.
