2017 has been an exciting year for slot players in the UK. There have been lots of new slot sites, loads of great games and lots of fun to be had. Here we review our favourite games of 2017, including great titles from NetEnt.
Castle Builder 2 is a fantastic slot game in a series that blures th lines between online slots and social gaming, making the gameplay into a series of missions in which a player must complete a series of missions and in doing so increase their chances of winning big, with plenty of great prizes up for grabs in free spins and bonus rounds. There are no less than 300 characters in Castle Builder for a player to interact with and lots of challenges to be completed. This is ‘gamification’, slots style.
Planet of the Apes by Netent is another blockbuster movie turned slot game and it uses both the Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Return of the Planet of the Apes film licenses in one slot. There are 5 reels slots to left and right of the game screen, each with three reels, and an outstanding 40 paylines offering great prizes. There are 5 bonus features as well and you can win up to 3000x your stake. The RTP is 96.33% and the slot features loadsa of clips from the movie too. All in, great fun to play.
For lots more fun checkout NetEnt’s Bloodsuckers 2, a Gothic hit and timely follow-up to the original. Released in March 2017 Bloodsuckers 2 has loadas of free spins and bonuses, 25 payline and 5 reels. The RTP is 96.94% and you can play from 20p up to £250 a go. But if you’re taking this one for a spin beware that it has a high variacnce and may suck you dry of cash before paying out! That said, when it does the payouts are high.
Thunderkick’s Flame Busters grew on us with time. It came out in the summer of 2017 with 5 reels and 243 paylines, and a kooky 1980s feel that reminded us of Arcade games like Atari. It has a relatively high RTP of 96.1% and relatively high volatility and is definitely worth checking out. The exciting stuff is in the bonus rounds where you can earn more winnings by progressing up the levels, and up the burning house to extinguish those flames.
Brilliant stuff from a game studio that is creating lots of great new games every year and is set to be the star of 2018.
