Jammin' Jars is a colourful 8x8 match/reactor layout game with free games and sticky Jam Jar wilds from Push Gaming. The game seemed simple enough in an attempt to capture the theme of the Bejeweled-like games.
Batman and the Riddler Riches is the first in the Batman branded video slots sextology from Playtech. It is a 243 ways pay which has a decent number of bonus games and features. The main selling point, however, is the use of the 1960's Batman licence.
Thunderstruck II is a very visually appealing game. It has 5 reels, and you play all 243 ways. The theme for the game is the Norse religion, and all the symbols stay true to the theme. The major symbols all have very nicely done animations when you make a winning combination with them.
Dead or Alive is an older slot from NetEnt featuring 9 lines, a freespins bonus with sticky wilds and a really well implemented western theme. Playing it however demands an understanding of slot volatility which we have inter-twinned into our review.

Aristocrat's Choy Sun Doa is a slot game with a far East theme. The play windows is ...[Read More]

Game of Thrones, Warcraft, Penny Dreadful, American Horror Story, The BFG, X-Men, Ghostbusters, Final Fantasy, The Witcher etc.. just to name a few big IPs doing the rounds. In the casino sector, the fantasy genre has always been a niche category. Unsurprisingly this is c...[Read More]
The Wild Chase is a new slot from Quickspin that shares its theme with games like NetEnt's Mega Fortune, or perhaps Quickfire's High Society. It follows a conventional 5 reel, 25 payline design but bakes it with an unconventional 'conman', white collar crime, jet set, 'catch me if you can' style theme. To be honest I have spent the best part of 30minutes trying to research and characterise this th...[Read More]
