2017: The Best Slots Released So FarTia Winter | 10 July 2017
If any player’s love of mobile slots had started cooling off toward the end of 2016, the first half of 2017 will have done a great job of rekindling it. The most respected software providers in the industry worked through impressive release schedules to unleash entertaining and, in some cases ground breaking, games.
A roundup of the best mobile slots released so far shows that providers have upped their game to not only ensure existing players are retained, but to reach new, emerging audiences. Graphics, animations, and special features are improving all the time, proving that mobile casino gaming is becoming a force to be reckoned with in the wider gaming world.
Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild
A 5-reel video slot with 243 ways to win from NetEnt, Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild is one of the most graphically impressive games released in 2017. The game is set in the heart of a steaming jungle, filled with exotic creatures.
Among the slot’s most notable elements are its lush 3D graphics and its expanding reel symbols that can form multiple winning combinations.
Immortal Romance Mobile Slot
Although Immortal Romance is technically not a new game, it is one of Microgaming’s most popular online slots. The first half of 2017 finally saw the release of the mobile version of the game.
It boasts the familiar characters and storyline of the original, 5 reels and 243 ways to win, and five different bonus features.
Another 2017 Microgaming release, Beautiful Bones was inspired by Dia de Los Muertos, the colourful celebration also known as the Day of the Dead. It offers players 5 reels, 243 Ways to Win, and a Wild Spin Again feature.
The feature is triggered when 3 matching symbols land on reels 2, 3, and 4. Players get a free re-spin with frozen Wild symbols. Beautiful Bones also has free spins rounds with multipliers.
A Playtech release, American Dad is a licensed mobile slot based on the smash-hit animated series of the same name. The slot has 5 reels, 40 lines, and 5 different bonus features, as well as a Schmooblydong Bonus Wheel.
The slot is as eccentric as the TV series. The bonus features are based on the characters, and include Roger’s Random Wilds, Stacking Stan, Francine’s Holy Grail, Wheels and Legman, and Hayley’s Progressive Multiplier feature.
2017 certainly has been a good one for mobile slot releases so far. If the first six months have been anything to go by, the rest of the year is going to be exciting.
