Slots are the most popular category at online casinos and new ones are constantly being launched. Here are some of the most keenly anticipated in 2022.

Finding the Best Places to Play

Of course, even the greatest online slots are only of any use if players actually have a trustworthy and well-made site at which to play them. There’s a super-abundance of casino sites from which to choose, which can make it time-consuming and tedious finding the top picks. The easiest way to find the best international online casinos is with our list of 2022’s best sites to play online casino games. There’s an array of sites offering extensive slots games (and other casino distractions such as table games and live dealer options), complemented with generous promotions for players old and new, and well-earned reputations for being reliable sites. And they accept players from all over the world.

Wild One

Yggdrasil Gaming has had its share of hits over the years with the likes of Norse adventures in Vikings Go Berzerk, and Jungle Books proving popular, and on 4 July the firm is set to released Wild One. The game lives up to its name with a potential maximum win of no less than €500,000. Couple this with a high degree of volatility and there’s every chance of some substantial winning streaks, provided the gaming gods hand you the good side of the volatility coin.

The theme is a dystopian future, an unusual pick for slots but one which earns points for creativity (ancient Egypt is fun but there’s no shortage of games with that backdrop). The player is on a journey to join survivors, with an idiosyncratic desert and strumming guitar providing an interesting setting. There’s also set to be a ton of features, including cascading reels, wild reels, multiplier wilds, and many more. It’s also unusually generous on the reels arrangement, with a 5×4 play area and 1,024 ways to win.

Wild Marlin: Big Game Fishing

A new slot set for August 2022 is Wild Marlin: Big Game Fishing, by Infinity Dragon Studios. Angling is one of the most popular sports by participation in the world, and others have had substantial success with this theme, including Pragmatic Play with Big Bass Bonanza, and Blueprint Gaming with Fishin’ Frenzy.

In terms of the playing area, Infinity Dragons have gone for the familiar favorite arrangement of a 5×3 reels setup and there are set to be 10 paylines. In terms of volatility, Wild Marlin: Big Game Fishing will have a medium approach and there’s an above-average return to player (RTP). While this can vary, the upper limit is 96.82%, which is a fair whack higher than standard. A new feature is the Bank’Em Wilds. Ocean pearls lead to free spins with guaranteed Bank’Em Wilds (and free spins can be re-triggered). During spins one to nine, each wild leaves a golden frame and on the tenth spin each frame turns wild, presenting a great opportunity for a huge win.

Leprechaun’s Vault

Think Play’n Go and the first slot that springs to mind is their smash hit Book of Dead, but with Leprechaun’s Vault the developer is moving from the golden sands of Egypt to the charming folklore of the Emerald Isle. Penciled in for a 4 August release date, there’s expected to be a high degree of volatility and a marginally above average RTP of 96.2%. Details are currently a little thin on the ground, but Irish-themed slots that see players hunting for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow are among the most popular so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for when this comes out.

Pile Em Up

Created by Microgaming partner Snowborn Games, Pile Em Up is due for a June release. On the paylines and reels things are quite typical (20 paylines, 5×3 play area) but the volatility is set to be high, which is something of a trend with forthcoming slots. RTP is also (slightly) on the high side with 96.22% (this is the highest one, the other variable RTPs being below average). There are a number of interesting little features to help this slot title stand out from the crowd.

Wilds are a common feature in slots and appear here, but a more unusual bonus symbol is the 1Up which increases the multiplier on coins by 1x (up to 10x). The prizes on coins can be collected with the magnet icon. Get three scatters and nine free spins will be yours (two scatters will provide three free spins). Another extra is hold and wins respins, with three respins when you get a heart on every reel.

And those are some of the most eagerly anticipated slots yet to come in 2022, with a variety of themes and gaming mechanics to interest a broad range of players.
