With many more coming, it seems that April 2021 will be yet another fruitful month with a number of great titles scheduled to hit the casinos. Keep on reading our article to see what some of the most interesting ones are.
Safari Sam 2 – Betsoft Gaming – April 22nd, 2021
Safari Sam is already a popular slot across Betsoft casinos. The designers decided to capitalize on its glory and create a sequel. Following a similar theme, but with an upgraded design and a plethora of bonus features, Safari Sam 2 is guaranteed to catch the attention of loyal Betsoft fans.
The slot comes with a total of 50 active pay lines. They are spread out across 5 reels and 3 rows, which is quite an unusual choice from the designers. Despite the high number of pay lines, players can bet anywhere from $0.20 to $20 per spin.
Land an entire reel with identical symbols and you will be awarded with a 3 of a kind payout. The symbols collapse and new symbols drop on the reel for more winning combinations.
On any given spin you can trigger the Call of the Wild feature. Compass Wilds will start dropping on the reels, with a chance for full 4 reels to be covered with Wilds.
Land 3, 4 or 5 Acacia Tree Scatters to trigger the bonus round. You are rewarded with 7, 12 or 20 free spins accordingly. During the feature each spin comes with a guaranteed Call of the Wild feature. Also, each time the matching symbols on a single reel collapse, the new symbols are guaranteed to be Wilds.
You can easily see how Safari Sam 2 can produce great payouts in the free spins bonus, thanks to the potentially massive number of Wilds that can hit the reels.
Egyptian Tombs – Microgaming – April 29th, 2021
Egyptian themed slots are incredibly popular among online players. There’s something alluring to the theme, leading you to hit the spin button, waiting for a treasure to be revealed on the screen. The latest addition to Microgaming’s portfolio, Egyptian Tombs, features the same popular theme, while at the same time brings a potential for massive payouts.
Many players will be pleased to learn that this is a MegaWays slot. It features 5 reels, 3,125 ways to win, with bets ranging from $0.20 to $24 per spin.
With 5 symbols per reel, forming payouts on Egyptian Tombs shouldn’t be a problem. During base play you can randomly trigger the Super Spin. In this feature you are either awarded Ra Scatters or one of the top paying symbols across the reels.
Landing as much Scatters as possible across the reels works to your advantage. When at least 5 of them hit the reels you are taken to the Wheel of Fortune. Here you have a chance to win a fixed prize, ranging anywhere from a measly 2 times the total stake, up to a massive 10,000 times the total stake. Of course you can also trigger the free spins bonus, awarding you with anywhere from 5 to 50 free spins.
Buffalo King Megaways – Pragmatic Play – April 29th, 2021
Pragmatic Play is hard at work keeping their loyal fans happy with new and exciting releases. One of the latest ones to go live in April, 2021 is Buffalo King Megaways. With a recognizable animal theme, great bonus features and the MegaWays design, this slot will surely tickle the imagination of online slots fans.
As expected Buffalo King Megaways comes with 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win. The bet size ranges from $0.20 up to $100 per spin.
The features that this slot has to offer are already well known from other slots. Once a win is formed on the reels the symbols involved are removed and new one’s land to take their place. This means that you can get many consecutive winning combinations in a single paid spin.
The slot also comes with a free spins bonus attached. It can be triggered by landing the needed number of Scatters on the reels or simply by using the Buy Feature button. During the bonus round each win increases the win multiplier and it keeps on rising until the feature ends.
Gator Gold Gigablox – Yggdrasil Gaming – April 27th, 2021
Gator Gold Gigablox is the latest addition of the Gigablox slots by Yggdrasil Gaming. These slots managed to rack up a loyal base of fans and Yggdrasil aims to capitalize on their popularity as much as possible. The game follows an animal theme, with the main symbol on the reels being the Gator. As expected the visual details in this slot are top notch and the animations are something well worth mentioning.
The game features 6 reels and 4 rows, with a total of 4,096 ways to win. The bet size ranges from $0.20 to $60 per spin and the slot promotes a max payout of 20,000 times the total stake.
Like in the rest of the Gigablox slots the main feature in the game is the colossal symbols. You are guaranteed to get at least one Gigablox reel per spin. It will take up anywhere from 2 to 4 normal reels on the screen. The symbols can cover as much as 4x4 positions on the reels, so the more of them you land the bigger the end payout is.
Land at least 5 Scatters on the reels and you enter the free spins bonus. You are awarded with 5 free spins and you get an extra free spin for every additional Scatter that lands in the feature. Furthermore, every time a Wild symbol contributes to a payout it will award a win multiplier of x2 or x3.
Rhino Blitz – Playtech – April 26th, 2021
Following the huge success that Buffalo Blitz had across Playtech casinos, the designers decided to take things one step further. In April Rhino Blitz will be released across online operators, bringing yet another great Playtech slot. As you can already guess the slot shares some similarities with Buffalo Blitz, but it comes with a number of improvements and is sure to be a big hit among players.
In terms of design the game features 6 reels, 4 rows and 4,096 ways to win. The bet size ranges from $0.40 to $40 per spin.
At first look the slot seems to be identical to Buffalo Blitz, with the only obvious difference being in the game symbols. They too can land stacked across the reels, hitting the recognizable big wins from 6 of a kind wins. The Rhino is the main game symbol, capable of producing the biggest payouts on the screen.
But in terms of bonus features the designers have a few hidden surprises in stock. The bonus round is triggered by landing 3 or more Scatters on the reels. There’s no official release by Playtech what the bonus round has to offer precisely. For now, we know that the bonus involves special features for some symbols, like multipliers and special features for certain reels on the screen. It remains to be seen what they are once the slot is released.
