First, we venture to Nepal with ELK Studios in Katmandu Gold, a game that’s rich in paylines and bonus multipliers. Then, we join intrepid heroine Sadie Swift in Kalamba Games’ new slot as she travels between the Wild West and ancient Egypt for some high-octane fun. You can even opt for the HyperBonus option and cut straight to the bonus round.
As winter approaches, we head into a frozen fantasy world in Quickspin’s Crystal Prince online slot. Win free spins as you trigger thousands of potential win ways. And for our final adventure, we join John Hunter and the Mayan Gods, the latest Pragmatic Play release that boasts high volatility, free spins, and expanding wilds.
Let’s start our adventure trip with a journey into Nepal in ELK Studios’ Katmandu Gold. It’s a six-reel slot crammed with multiplier free drops, expanding wins, and a lucrative Ice Climber bonus. Can you make it to Everest and scoop the lot?
ELK Studios have been making slick games since 2013. This year alone, the awesome Nitropolis has hit the market, and Katmandu Gold looks set to be another winner. It’s the fifth release in the ELK Gold Series, but the first from the ELK stable to feature a Buy Bonus option.
The slot sees you take on the role of an intrepid explorer, Kane, as he embarks on a journey to find the famed temple of gold in Nepal. The game plays 4,096 ways to win, but this can increase to 531,441 if you unlock extra rows.
The game uses an avalanche system, where successful “drops” see symbols removed from the reels and replaced by symbols sitting above. In addition, an extra row of symbols is added to the top – up to a maximum of eight. Oh, and watch out for super, mega, and epic symbols which can measure 2×2 to 4×4.
You’ll trigger the Multiplier Free Drops feature with 3+ bonus symbols. When you land another bonus symbol, you’ll increase the prize multiplier by +1. However, if choose the Buy Bonus feature, you can cut straight to the action with 10-25 free drops.
Look out, too, for the Expanding Win symbol. This special wild expands in the direction of the arrow shown on the screen. And don’t forget the Ice Climber feature, where non-winning symbols can magically transform into winning lines.
Let’s seek more adventure now in the shape of Sadie Swift: Guns ‘N Glyphs by Kalamba Games. This globetrotting, Indiana Jones-inspired video slot takes place in a world where excitement lurks behind every reel.
When Kalamba Games released Pawprints of Purrsia in 2020, we thought the studio had gone all guns blazing with four bonuses and three separate free spins features. But Kalamba have continued their trend for creating high-octane online slots with Sadie Swift: Guns ‘N Glyphs.
This adventure-themed slot borrows inspiration from Raiders of the Lost Ark, Tomb Raider, and – for slots fans – Rich Wilde. Special symbols can improve the experience during the game. You may earn a win multiplier or expanding symbols, but they really come into their own during the free spins bonus.
Trigger free spins by hitting 3+ bonus symbols in any position. You’ll win one of two features: Egyptian Free Spins or Wild West Free Spins. In addition, you can land the EXTRA FREE SPINS symbol on the bonus reels to bag a free game.
One symbol is chosen at random in the Egyptian bonus. This becomes an expanding symbol for the whole round. In the Wild West Free Spins round, meanwhile, sticky wilds can appear on the reels. These come with juicy prize multipliers attached. Plus, look out for the sheriff’s star. When this appears on a bonus reel, all sticky wilds on that reel will have their multiplier increased by +1.
If you’re inspired by our first two best new online slots, take a look at Quickspin’s Crystal Prince. Like Katmandu Gold, this magical fantasy-themed slot features 4,096 ways to win. Best of all, you can unlock extra rows on every winning spin.
We’ve been featuring a lot of cluster win games in our best new online slots of the week roundups recently. And joining the party are Quickspin with Crystal Prince. It’s a five-reel slot set in a frozen world where a powerful elf prince sets off blizzards and unlocks precious gems from the land.
You begin each base game playing four rows and 4,096 ways to win. You win a cash prize by matching three to six symbols anywhere on adjacent reels. Plus, whenever you hit a winning combination, you will unlock another row.
When you fill eight rows, you will break the blizzard seal and activate the blizzard mode. This is where things get interesting. The storm locks winning symbols and scatters into place, with other symbols tumbling to reveal new ones. The blizzard mode continues until you hit no more winning combinations.
You can also trigger 8-20 free spins in the game by landing blue snowflake scatters. Plus, during the feature, look out for special wild frost wilds and wild frost wild multipliers. You can even re-trigger the feature by landing more scatters.
John Hunter and the Mayan Gods is the latest five-reel release from Pragmatic Play starring our brave explorer. There are wilds, scatters, and free spins, plus you can win a top jackpot worth over 2,500x your stake. Dare you venture into the jungle for some high-volatility action?
Games like Microgaming’s Tomb Raider and Rich Wilde & the Book of Dead have paved the way for epic adventure-themed slots over the years. And the latest developer to entice players on a hunt for gold and glory is Pragmatic Play with John Hunter and the Mayan Gods.
Hunter is the hero in this unashamedly old-fashioned five-reel slot. He’s also the top-paying symbol, awarding 50x your stake if you land five of a kind. Along the way, you can hit wild symbols which expand to fill the entire reel. And look out for temple scatters, which trigger free spins when you land three to five of them anywhere.
You start with 12 free games. However, during the bonus round, you can win further free spins by landing more wilds on the reels. As you trigger more free spins, you’ll gradually move up the levels. The further you progress, the more high-paying symbols you will see appear.
