There are many new online slots from Red Tiger, Pragmatic Play, Stakelogic, Play’n GO and Co. I have tested a few of the games and present them here in the following article.
Egyptian slots, Asian slot machines and even sharks in the desert. At the beginning of March there are some new games in the online casinos. As usual, the range of topics is broad. In this report I briefly introduce the games and then describe my experiences when trying them out.
Wings of Ra by Red Tiger
Wings of Ra is a 5 reel slot with 3 rows and 10 paylines. 3 adjacent symbols pay out a win. It doesn’t matter where the three symbols appear on the reels. It does not have to be paid from left to right.
5 numbers and letters serve as symbols for small winnings. The eye of Ras, an eagle with the sun (symbol of Ras), the statue of Nefertiti and the bust of a sarcophagus are said to grant high payouts. A stylized scarab with the inscription “Free spins” serves as the scatter. A coin with a ruby and wings was chosen as the mystery symbol.
As soon as the mystery symbol appears, it turns at the end of the spin and all mystery symbols then randomly release the same symbol.
3 or more scatter trigger 12 free spins. In the free spins, the mystery symbols are collected on a counter. As soon as you have collected around 12 mystery symbols, a symbol is also converted into mystery symbols. However, there are no additional free spins. The more mystery symbols you get, the higher the chance of full frames.
You can bet between 10 cents and € 300 on the slot. According to the manufacturer, the maximum profit is € 900,000, which is 3,000 times the maximum bet. The payout ratio is 95.69%.
It is a high variation slot from Red Tiger. The slot machine is very well designed. The symbols are of high quality, the background music matches the slot.
Fortunes of Ali Baba from Play’n GO
Fortunes of Ali Baba is a new 1001-night slot from Play’n GO. The slot machine has 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 fixed paylines. There are 5 numbers and letters as small symbols. High payouts are granted by spices, diamonds, amulets and daggers. As game, there are also the 40 robbers in the base game Ali Baba and in the free spins. Scheherazade can appear on reels 1 and 5 as a scatter.
If you get 2 scatter, a selection bonus game is started. First choose from 5 vessels. You can either get a cash prize, free spins or a ghost (as a rivet and end of the bonus). When you get the free spins, there are 8 free spins. In the free spins there is a multiplier, which is increased by 2 scatters. When Diebe-Wilds and Ali Baba appear on the reels in the free spins, the thieves connect to Ali Baba. To do this, they put several wilds on the way to him. The wilds then stop for a respin.
You can bet between 20 cents and 100 €. According to the manufacturer, the maximum profit is 10,000 times the stake. The payout ratio is 96.89%.
It is a high variation slot. The slot machine is made appealing in terms of symbols and sounds. However, there are long dry spells and it can take a long time to get the free spins. Most of the time there are only instant wins and the spirit with the selection bonus.
Golden Beauty from Pragmatic Play
Golden Beauty (by Pragmatic Play) is a new 5 reel slot with 4 rows and 75 paylines. The symbols come from the Asian culture. 5 letters and numbers serve as high symbols. A flower, a lute, a hair clip, a brooch, earrings, a pot with coins and an Asian beauty represent the high symbols. The inscription “Wild” was chosen as game. An Asian temple serves as a scatter. There is a golden lotus flower as a bonus symbol.
In the base game you have 10 spins to collect golden lotus flowers. The positions of the lotus flowers are surrounded by golden frames. In the last spin, the golden frames become wilds and you have a chance of winning big.
3 or more scatter give free spins. In the free spins there is a fixed number of wilds, which are randomly positioned on the slot with each spin. The following options are possible:
|Number of scatters||Free spins with 5 wilds||Free spins with 7 wilds||Free spins with 10 wilds|
|3||15 Free Spins||10 Free Spins||5 Free Spins|
|4||30 Free Spins||20 Free Spins||10 Free Spins|
|5||45 Free Spins||30 Free Spins||15 Free Spins|
The free spins can be extended. At the end of the first free spin session, you can choose which additional free spin option you want to try.
You can bet between 25 cents and € 250. The maximum win is € 52,500 with a full image of the highest symbol. That corresponds to 210 times the stake. The payout ratio is 96.44%.
The slot machine is very interesting from the gameplay. Stopping playing can be difficult in gameplay. Usually you always try to end the 10 spins so that you don’t miss anything. If you adapt the bet, you start with the spins from the beginning. Otherwise you can quickly get free spins and get extensions there.
King of 3 Kingdoms by NetEnt
The Slots King of 3 Kingdoms by NetEnt is located in the Asian culture. The slot has 5 reels, 3 rows and 243 lines. 6 numbers and letters represent the small symbols. High symbols are an army, a ruler in a green robe, a king in a blue robe and a ruler in a red robe. A map of the three kingdoms serves as game. The wilds only appear on reels 2 and 4. Scatter is the statue of a dragon.
3, 4 or 5 scatters trigger 15, 20 or 25 free spins. In the free spins, the coin wins are tripled.
You can bet between 25 cents and € 125. The maximum win for winning on one line is € 22,500 in the base game and € 45,000 in the free spins. This corresponds to 180 times or 360 times the stake. The payout ratio is 96.88%.
It is a medium variance slot. The free spins came after less than 50 spins. The free spins were okay. Overall, the theme of the slot doesn’t really appeal to me. In the following video you can have a look at the gameplay. The slot is not brand new, some casinos must have offered it exclusively months ago.
Conclusion: No highlights for early March 2020
Personally, I found Wings of Ra and Golden Beauty from the gameplay interesting. The Expandables Megaways will surely appeal to players in the popular High Variance slots and maybe movie fans. Otherwise I liked Fishin ‘for Gold, but in my opinion there were no really recommendable slots. The games simply have no potential for classic games at the moment.
