Playtech – Age of Gods
This medium-high variance, epic slot game from industry giants Playtech features 5 reels and 20 paylines, 4 progressive jackpots, a bonus round with 4 different free spins features, up to 5x multipliers, 5 wilds on each spin, expanding wilds, prizes of up to 7,000x your stake, and much more. You can play from as little as 20p. The latest in the Age of Gods series is sure to be up there with the front runners for this year’s award.
Inspired Gaming – Centurion Free Spins
Five reels, three rows and 20 fixed paylines – this is the basis of this Roman-themed game, with exciting bonus round including a bonus trail with big multipliers, free spins with extra wilds, and a pick me round. It pays out at 95% and its release was one of the highlights of the year for slots players.
Evolution Gaming – Dream Catcher
This 24/7 Gameshow that attracts punters from the slots, casino, bingo and lottery sites, is in fact the perfect entry to Live Dealer tables. This is a basic ‘spin the wheel’ casino game, but with live action for online players. Some casinos are now featuring tournaments for Dream Catcher Players.
NetEnt – Red Riding Hood
One of the world’s biggest and most popular game studios, NetEnt, brought another children’s story to life in Red Riding Hood, part of the Fairytale Legends series. There are 5 reels, 3 rows and 20 paylines. There are plenty of fun bonuses, free spins, bonus trails and more to be had here. One of the best slot games of 2017.
Microgaming – Jurassic World
The follow up to Jurassic Park, Jurassic World slot from Microgaming is another blockbuster hit with tons of exciting free spins and bonus rounds. Microgaming can be trusted to bring the best out of a top movie brand, and Jurassic World is no exception.
Quickspin – Sakura Fortune
This is a 5 reel and 40 payline slot with tons and tons of wilds and re-spins. You can play from 20p up to £80 per spin and the graphics are simply stunning. Guaranteed to be amongst the favourites for the EGR Game of the Year award for 2017.
Totem Lightning (Red Tiger Gaming)
5 reels, 40 paylines, and stunning graphics. This is surely the stand out release from Red Tiger Gaming for 2017. The lightening strike feature is clever too – it removes low paying symbols from the reels to increase chances of a high payout.
