Slots that will be released in January 2022
Published: December 31, 2021
With the New Year now behind us, we enter 2022 with high expectations for the future. A new year always brings brand new things to look forward to.
Most importantly for us, it means a whole new slew of great online slots to enjoy! Software providers have been hard at work to make the start of the year as great as possible. Join us as we explore and see which games and developers get the nod this month.
This time around, Microgaming only managed to snatch up one spot on the list. Pragmatic Play, Play’n GO, Betsoft, and Quickspin claimed the rest of the spots. If you need a break from Santa, snow, and reindeer, you will quite like our selection.
Some reintroduce old friends, while others offer something brand new. However, all of them deliver some top-tier slot experiences! Which one will you be playing this January? Read on to find out!
Agent Jane Blonde Max Volume
The agent’s iconic looks remain unchanged. The background depicts a large city far off in the distance, promising all kinds of fun activities once ashore.
Agent Jane Blonde Max Volume has several interesting special features. However, the most lucrative one is its three fixed jackpots! The free spins multiplier can increase the jackpots.
Players activate free spins by landing at least one Scatter on all five reels. You can choose three types of free spins rounds.
All three benefit from a multiplier trail that can go up to 100x. Additionally, players benefit from Rolling Reels, which can award multiple consecutive wins in one round.
Take a dip beneath the waves and swim with the fishes in Wild Depths! It seems Pragmatic Play is just as eager as we are to leave the cold and snow behind. Their casino game is set to launch in January and takes us somewhere warm and tropical.
Unfortunately, we do not get to spend any time on the beach here. All the action takes place beneath the waves. The background depicts the colourful shallows of an ocean. Everything is bright and animated, adding to the slot’s pleasant atmosphere.
Available special features include multiplier Wilds, free spins, and roaming Wilds. When a Wild is part of a win, it remains on the board and moves towards the edge of the screen.
Wins with Wilds are increased by 2x. Having two or more Wilds means their multiplier multiply each other. The game offers an above-average RTP of 96.48%.
Reactoonz started as an amusing cluster-pay slot. However, players fell in love with Play ’n Go’s slot and clamoured for more. Gigantoonz takes the same 8×8 cascading reels formula and adds mega symbols into the mix!
Visually, the game is very reminiscent of Reactoonz and Reactoonz 2. The background is simple but is animated with care to make it stand out. The symbols on the board are also very reminiscent of the original Reactoonz.
Cascading reels allow multiple wins to be achieved at the cost of a single spin. Icons can appear as mega symbols, up to 7×7 in size. Each mega icon has a randomized cluster value up to 13.
While mega symbols only count as one icon for forming wins, it uses the cluster value to determine the payout. Winning fills the Quantumeter, which can grant up to four special features. Non-winning spins can also randomly receive up to ten Wilds.
Triple Juicy Drops
Fruits and slots have been the second-best combination in the world, right after bread and butter. Betsoft took full advantage of this association when making Triple Juicy Drops. The visuals alone will make you want to go buy some juice!
The background image depicts a variety of delicious fruits being dunked in water. The water is splashing about, and the various fruits color it a delightful shade of purple-pink. The symbol designs also feature all kinds of fruit.
Players have access to several special features in this five-reel, five-row game. First, we collect symbols to activate the mini, super, and mega wheels. Each prize wheel comes with its own set of prizes that players can win.
Players can also unlock free spins. During free spins, Betsoft’s release features multiplicative Wilds. That means every free spins win can be increased by 3x. The game’s RTP is set to 95.73%.
Sometimes, we wish a truck full of cash would just stop, hand us a bag, and speed off into the sunset. Unfortunately, nobody is willing to give the money away freely. If you want to snag some loot from Quickspin’s Cash Truck, you need to fight for it!
The software provider opted for a post-apocalyptic setting. In the distance, we can see the massive hills of the American Rockies. The reels are laid out on the back of a moving truck, making the whole thing feel like one weird road trip.
Notable special features include tumbling reels, the second chance, and the truck raider bonus. Truck Raider triggers if you land more than three Scatters. Landing more than three Scatters adds an expander icon for each additional Scatter.
The bonus starts with three free spins and three cash stacks. Every spin awards a new cash stack. If a new symbol appears the free spins counter resets.
Canadians can look forward to quite a fantastic list of games this January. After a barrage of Christmas-themed releases, the extra variety in themes is welcome.
Secret agents, underwater paradises, aliens, fruity drinks, and post-apocalyptic societies all await you here. Hats off to the developers for putting so much effort into making the themes work so well.
Cash Truck and Wild Depths offer the most interesting bonuses among the top five releases. This is not a guarantee for the biggest wins, however.
That honour might go to Triple Juicy Drops and its 20,534x top prize. Agent Jane Blonde Max Volume and Gigantoonz both lean into what makes the original versions of these games popular while adding something new.
