<H2> Who Needs Christmas Slots? <H2>
With a host of casino software providers busy dishing out Christmas-themed slots galore right now, it is refreshing to find a few slot developers who aren’t remotely interested in celebrating the festive occasion. In fact, by choosing to unveil new slots which aren’t tied to the holiday season right now, the software providers have given their four new games every chance of being noticed by the crowd.
2By2 Gaming, ELK Studios and Blueprint Gaming are all dishing out new titles this week, and every single one of them is somehow tied to either ancient history or mythological themes. So, what can you expect to play this week?
<H2> The Valkyries and Vikings Keep On Coming <H2>
Earlier in the week, ELK Studios unveiled the first of this fab four. Valkyrie may have a straightforward title, but the gameplay it offers is anything but. The slot features 5 reels and 1,024 ways to win, all playable for as little as 20p a game. Players will also note that the gods of Midgard have rained down a flurry of special features for players to take advantage of. Amongst them include:
- Randomly triggered multiple wilds, wild reels as well as 2×2 and 3×3 colossal symbols
- Free spin bonuses with any of the above features
- and a non-progressive jackpot worth 3,000 coins
Valkyrie isn’t the only Norse-themed slot to debut this week, though. Blueprint Gaming is continuing their successful run of Megaways slots, with Vikings Unleashed. This 6-reel slot dishes out a random number of lines on each spin, and with as many as 117,649 lines there for the taking, few players are going to grumble at the 20p minimum stake.
The new Blueprint Gaming slot also offers a Battle of the Seas bonus, during which players can choose to accept the number of spins provided or gamble them for the chance of something better. With a surplus of spins, a cascading reel structure and increasing multipliers, Vikings Unleashed: Megaways has a lot to offer if ELK Studios’ Valkyrie doesn’t tick your boxes.
<H2> Greek Mythology Slots Are in Demand <H2>
Blueprint Gaming has also taken on the Greek mythology theme this week. Journey of the Gods has just been unveiled as an exclusive slot (with its worldwide launch just a few days away), and this slot naturally deals with Zeus and co. Played over a simpler 5-reel, 10-line gaming structure, with wagers costing as little as 10p a pop, Journey of the Gods is ideal for players on a budget.
The new game can deliver a wealth of goodies and is played over a cascading reels structure, which means that every time you land a win, the winning icons are removed, and new ones take their place. You could land successive wins on a single spin with this release, and doing so four times on the bounce will see players trigger a free spin bonus. All this could see you land decent wins as you hunt down a non-progressive jackpot worth 5,000 coins.
If that’s a touch too much plain sailing for you, why not check out 2By2 Gaming’s own take on Greek mythology this week? Medusa’s Golden Gaze naturally focuses on the most famous of the Gorgons and is played over 5 reels and 25 lines. Like the other slots, there are plenty of goodies up for grabs here, too. Some include:
- Mystery features which turn stacks of icons into the same symbol
- Reel Copy bonuses which duplicate stacked icons across other reels
- and three free spin bonuses
The first of the free spin bonuses is standard fare, although another features an expanded 50-line reel set, while the final option offers fewer free games but has the Reel Copy bonus active at the same time.
<H2> Where to Play These Hot New Games <H2>
If these new games tick your boxes, you can expect to find them all across the net this week. ELK Studios and Blueprint Gaming slots tend to be widespread at all major casinos offering software from multiple providers. 2By2 Gaming’s effort may require a bit of hunting down, but it is well worth a look if historical and mythological-themed slots are your forte.
