The exciting thing about online casinos and the slot games they offer is that they are continually being updated. While many games remain holdovers due to their popularity, online casinos know that to attract repeat customers they have to constantly deliver new and exciting games. In some ways, online casinos are like television. While people do like to watch reruns of favourites such as Seinfeld, Law and Order, or CSI Miami on Netflix over and over, give them a new and exciting show to watch and they will choose it every time. That being said, here are some of the best and exciting online casino games that launched in 2021.
- Basketball Star on Fire by Microgaming Set with a background of an NBA-style basketball court with a cheering crowd in the background, Basketball Star on Fire features ref whistles, tennis shoes, players, medals, basketballs, wild symbols, and more. There is plenty of excitement here including an exciting hyperfold feature that brings up coins with various denominations you uncover, free spins, and more. All in all, Basketball Star on Fire is a frenetic, energy game with a rocking soundtrack to boot which is exciting to play and offers plenty of action.
- Fishin’ Reels by Pragmatic Play Fishing can be a great sport and Fishin’ Reels takes advantage of this in this bright, colourful, and relaxing slot game which features fish, lobsters, frogs, a diving mask, and assorted colourful symbols. Also, the background music is peppy. Land 3, 4, or 5 of the golden bonus features, and you trigger up to 10 respins or a catchém feature for the big and valuable fish. We did notice while playing the demo that the golden bonus features are rather hard to land, but this is definitely a slot worth trying, and a relaxing alternative to more hyper slots. Give it a try.
- Bushi Sushi by Microgaming What can we say about an Asian Dining-themed game? We’re not even sure Bushi is a word in Japanese but it does rhyme with sushi. This is a game that offers only moderate wins, with the max win being 800 coins, so it’s not a game to get rich off of, and to be frank, we found the demo version of Bushi Shushi to be rather stingy, so of all Microgaming’s offerings we don’t recommend you spend a lot of coins trying it out. But if you don’t mind small wins, it’s worth a try.
- 777 Strike by RedTigerGaming 777 strike is a retro game with cherries, lemons, oranges, and Jacks, Queens, Kings and Aces, and 7 symbols. There is not much new here at all other than a respin feature, but at least judging from the demo version, the machine pays out well and often. This is a game for vintage gamblers, but if that includes you and you want to go old school, give it a try.
- The Bounty by Microgaming Featuring old-time playing cards, lawmen and women, and bad guys who ambush the good guys and trigger free spins, the Bounty is a great game to play. Western-themed slots are not new, but the bounty is an attractive alternative.
- Hell’s Kitchen by NetEnt Based on the Gordon Ramsey TV cooking show, this slot has a lot to offer. There are burger and desert symbols, and of course Gordon Ramsey as the devil. Your Blood really gets growing when the narrator says let’s spice things up a little and multiple kitchen knives begin to be thrown at the screen. The graphics are great, and this is one of your better and most exciting slot games.
- Hyper Strike by Microgaming This is a real winner from Microgaming. Hyper Strike is basically an old-time slot machine that is transformed into the disco area. There are plenty of Hyper Strike wins, and though we didn’t hit any, you can trigger as much as 30 free spins on the game. The grand prize is 2,000 coins, which is not bad.
- The Dream Machine by Microgaming With their partner Golden Rock Studios, they created this old-time dreamed-themed slot. There are moons, dreamcatchers, portals to other worlds, and more. The great thing about this game is that you do get plenty of smaller wins, and if you are lucky you can win up to 200 respins which is fantastic. The Dream Machine is certainly a slot you will want to try in 2021.
- Super 7 Wilds by Yggdrasil Slots It seems the vintage, classic slots will never go away and Yggdrasil takes their own shot at updating a classic by adding robots and superheroes to the mix. This makes the game exciting and interesting and Kiwi players should definitely try this game for a spin.
