Everyone wants to be appreciated, this is especially the case if you work hard for a certain cause. In the entertainment industry, works are usually showered with awards at various ceremonies and even being shortlisted, is a major achievement in itself.
In the slot development industry, there are many awards ceremonies across the globe that celebrate the creative excellence of individual slot creators. Winning an award can boost the credentials of all those involved in the victorious game. With so many games at wizardslots being released each month, front runners for the best slots of the year will soon be revealed and here is a look at some of the great new slots that deserve to be shortlisted for the coveted title of ‘best slot game of the year’.
The Hand of Midas Slot
The Hand of Midas will not be winning any awards for best graphics, but for an all-round gaming experience, it is well-worth being shortlisted for best slot game of the year. It is based on the classic Greek tale of King Midas who turned everything he touched into gold. This Pragmatic Play release is played on a 5×3 slot platform and there are 20 active pay lines. The betting range is between £0.20p and £100. You can win 5000x your original stake and have a lot of fun trying to do so. The highlight here is definitely the bonus round. The round itself consists of free spins that are activated once you land three or more of King Midas hands on the reels. During the bonus the wilds that land become sticky wilds and each one releases multipliers to boost your winnings. Even though the volatility is high, the RTP score still comes in at 96.54%.
Maui Mischief Slot
Maui Mischief is a fun slot that can lift your mood if you are feeling down. The game is a co-production between Microgaming and Old Skool Studios. Unlike the Hand of Midas, the production design here is memorable. A Tiki-masked character is your guide through this game and they also act as the Wild symbol as well. Three Bone symbols are needed to trigger the bonus round and before your spins commence, the masked character begins to beat some drums, on the right of the platform. Wins in the free spins are greeted with a 3x multiplier and the free spins can be retriggered. It’s a highly volatile slot, so be prepared for the unexpected, despite this, it does come with a 96.47% RTP score.
Dinosaur Rage Slot
If you are still hooked on Dinosaurs ever since Jurassic Park brilliantly brought them back to life on the big screen, then you may want to rub shoulders with some raging beasts’ courtesy of Dinosaur Rage by Quick Spin studios. Heroine Anna guides you as she explores the land of these beasts, in a game that boasts a 96.22% RTP score. There are 5-reels 4-rows and 1024 ways to win. The maximum win here is 17,794x your original stake. Whenever Anna fills an entire reel, she triggers the Pay Anywhere feature and Dinosaur Eggs can land you 25 free spins.
