The first half of 2020 has been a bit of a crazy one, to say the least. Every single person on the planet has had to deal with the global pandemic, and lots of aspects of our daily lives have changed, and some of these changes may become permanent.
Although the output of the major wagering software studios has reduced in 2020, there have still been more than enough new titles for people to enjoy (responsibly). Here is the exclusive JustSlots run down of the 10 best new online slots UK 2020.
1 – Gonzo’s Quest Megaways (NetEnt/Red Tiger)
Who else could be number one than everyone’s favourite slotting conquistador? Gonzo is back, handed over to Red Tiger and given the Megawayz treatment leased from Big Time Gaming. This rehash could have been awful, but instead it’s the perfect excuse to spy on Gonzo’s silky dance moves all over again!
2 – Deadwood (Nolimit City)
The latest release in the NoLimit City X_Nudge Volatility Extreme series, it’s back to the Wild West for this wild and crazy slot. This game has the odd set-up with 3-4-4-4-3 as the reel sequence, plus it has 576 ways to win! With huge wilds, awesome graphics and an excellent soundtrack you might go wild for this game!
3 – Troll Hunters 2 (Play’n GO)
Play’n GO have been the busiest beavers of all when it comes to online slots in the UK in 2020, but they found time to create a sequel to one of their most popular games. Yes, the troll hunters are back, and those trolls are even bigger and uglier than ever. Joint them on the hunt for big monsters and even bigger payouts.
4 – Star Clusters Mega Clusters (Big Time Gaming)
Big Time Gaming have already revolutionised the slotting world with their Megaways concept, and in 2020 they’ve embarked on a new mission – to do the same with cluster plays slots. This game starts with a 4×4 grid, but if you unlock a succession of wins you could end up facing one measuring 16×16. If you are good at maths that’s 256 potentially winning symbols.
5 – Io (ELK Studios)
ELK Studios are often overshadowed by their Swedish rivals NetEnt and Play’n GO which is a shame as they are perfectly capable of devising many brilliant games. This June release contained an excellent concept – a row is added for each win up to a maximum of eight and an outstanding 262,144 ways to win!
6 – Lucky Neko Gigablox (Yggdrasil Gaming)
This game has all the usual lovely touches we’ve come to expect from Yggdrasil Gaming, and it’s a game that looks and sounds as good as it plays. This is a cascading reels game with one difference – the reels are arranged in a 6×4 matrix, but some blocks are bigger than others! An excellent slot with an authentic Japanese look and feel.
7 – Street Fighter 2: The World Warrior (NetEnt)
When can a game be TOO popular? When it’s Street Fighter 2; The World Warrior from NetEnt! This game was so popular NetEnt had to take it down for a while as it was thought that just too many people were playing it. This is a fantastic game with lots of player options, and the only slot where you smash up a car to win cash!
8 – Starz Megaways (Pragmatic Play)
There have been plenty of Megaways releases in 2020 and alongside Gonzo’s Quest Megaways this Pragmatic Play slot has to be considered one of the best thanks to its simplistic gameplay and high volatility. This slot might not challenge your grey matter but sometimes you just want a slot that entertaining above everything else.
9 – Charlie Chance in Hell to Play (Play’n GO)
The humble 3×3 slot has experienced a bit of a comeback in 2020, and Play’n GO are the main instigators of that. They’ve released a handful this year and we think Charlie Chance in Hell to Play is the best. This game has been designed to look like a 1930s cartoon with Charlie Chance being the slotting version of Charlie Chaplin.
10 – Diamond Vortex (Play’n GO)
The third and final Play’n GO entry on our list is half a slot and half a cluster pays game. Such mis-mashes have been tried in the past with varied results but Play’n GO have really succeeded here. This complex-looking game does have plenty of rules, but it’s easy (eventually) to get your head around them.
That’s our top 10 best new online slots UK 2020 so far, but there’s still a few months of this year left to get through yet! Why not check back in 2021 for our complete run down of the best new online slots of the year?
