Slots that will be released in February 2022
Published: January 31, 2022
January comes to a close, and a set of new online slots comes with it. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, as is the promise of warmer weather. Fierce competition for any software provider hoping to catch players’ attention!
Fortunately for everyone involved, talented developers have produced excellent slots for this February. Read on to see what amazing games are waiting for us to try this upcoming month.
Fierce competition means no one software provider ended up taking more than one spot on the list. Stakelogic, Pragmatic Play, Microgaming, Big Time Gaming, and Play’n GO have all given us some fantastic online slots to look forward to.
Some ideas are brand new, while others revisit old concepts. However, all of them are top-tier experiences. Which ones will you be enjoying when February rolls around?
Desert Riches Hold’ N’ Link
Ancient Egypt is always an attractive destination for video slots. It seems Stakelogic is not immune to its charms either! This setting serves as the backdrop for the team’s latest release. Desert Riches Hold’ N’ Link shows what the developer does best: fun visuals and excellent bonuses!
The slot’s background is simple but quite attractive. Animated torches illuminate the tomb, while hieroglyphs inscribed on the wall add a wonderful atmosphere.
Find at least six bonus spheres to activate the Hold’ N’ Link special feature. During the bonus, spheres stick to the reels. During the special feature, players receive three re-spins.
Each time a new sphere lands, the number of re-spins resets to three. Each sphere appears with cash prizes or one of two smaller fixed jackpots. If you land fifteen bonus spheres, you win the grand fixed jackpot. Payer, Last Chance, and Collect Spheres add additional features to the bonus.
The Ultimate 5
The artists of Pragmatic Play no doubt had fun designing the slot. Every so often, an antelope will run and disappear behind the reels. Flying birds, swaying grass, and a flowing river add to the colourful atmosphere.
Special features include free spins and the Hold & Spin super boost. Hold & Spin grants three re-spins, during which only Money symbols can appear.
Players can only win fixed jackpots during this bonus. The developer also added an extra feature to free spins: removing low-value icons. As free spins progress, the reels level up and remove playing card royals one by one. When it fully levels up, only higher value symbols remain.
Jurassic Park: Gold
All time great, Microgaming is the master of great licensed content. The developer has already shown us once they have experience with Jurassic Park. Now, the team is partnering with Stormcraft Studios to give us another superb game that can award an 8,000x jackpot.
Fans of the movie will no doubt be quite pleased with the background image. The lush greenery is very reminiscent of the original film. Even the characters from the movie make a reappearance in Jurassic Park: Gold!
Players looking to win the top prize will need to take advantage of the Link & Win special feature. Land six or more Powerball symbols to activate the bonus.
All Powerball icons are held for the duration of the bonus. If another Powerball symbol lands, the number of Link & Win spins resets to three. Three or more Scatters activate free spins. A special Wild Chase bonus can be triggered by landing Wilds during free spins.
Apollo Pays Megaways
The guys from Big Time Gaming often get a chance in the spotlight. All they needed this time was a helpful push from a talented Greek deity. That, and a slot so high variance it offers a mouthwatering top prize worth 116,030x!
The Apollo Pays Megaways slot floored us the first time we saw its background image. A gorgeous view of Mount Olympus from above is something we did not know we wanted in life. BTG might want to consider selling the background as a standalone painting. We would buy it!
Alongside Megaways, the slot comes with several special features. First is the Win Exchange. If you win over 100x, you can trade it in for free spins.
A win between 25x to 100x can receive ten free spins through a gamble. During free spins, players benefit from an unlimited win multiplier. The multiplier increases every time a re-spin happens. Re-spins can also occur during normal gameplay.
Secret of Dead
The massive popularity of Book of Dead has given Play ’n Go plenty of inspiration for future releases. Secret of Dead is another addition to the series, offering a slight variation on an otherwise timeless formula.
The casino game takes place in the depths of an Egyptian pyramid. The halls are dark, but the glint of golden coins is unmistakable. It makes for an interesting view, especially since most Egypt-themed releases are bright.
Three or more ankhs grant a cash prize and free spins. Before the special feature starts, one icon is chosen randomly to be a special expanding symbol.
When the chosen icons land during free spins, they cover all positions on their reel. Players can win additional free spins by landing three or more ankhs.
Doing this transforms another icon to be a special expanding symbol as well. The top prize for this slot is 10,000x the player’s total bet.
When we first started putting together this list, we did not expect to see one special feature be so popular. Three software providers adding Hold & Win to their slots was quite interesting.
A hint to the bonuses’ future popularity, perhaps? On other matters, the games varied wildly. They opted for different themes, variances, maximum payouts, and other special features.
Jurassic Park: Gold was a fantastic blast from the past that we did not expect. Secret of Dead reminded us why Play’n GO remains the king of ‘Book of’ slot games.
The Ultimate 5 is a sweet and simple game with an awesome theme and sizeable top prize. Desert Riches Hold ‘N’ Link offers an impressive variety of special features. If you are chasing big wins, however? Apollo Pay is the game to be on the lookout for!
