There are plenty of exciting new casino games coming out in November. But asking me to pick a few titles from a month packed with interesting releases is like asking me to choose my favourite flavour of ice cream.
With 125 new games including slots, live casino and game shows, plus two exclusive releases including the hotly anticipated Breaking Bad slot from Playtech, this hasn’t been easy. But for you, I will oblige. Without further ado, here are my top five new casino games to watch out for this November.
1. Pirots 2
Provider: ELK Studios
Release date: 7th November
I have always loved the Jurassic Park theme tune; in fact I still hum it daily. Stay with me, this is relevant to Pirots 2 from ELK, the studio behind so many of my all-time favourite slots (Ecuador Gold, Wild Toro 2).
Pirots 2 is yet another bullseye. I’m a big fan of the floating reels and animated symbols (the animator deserves an all-expenses stay at Islar Nubar) and the music and creature sounds are pure Jurassic Park. Features like Symbol Collector, expanding reels and red button-powered meteor strike are outstanding, and there are many more to discover. The screenshot above simply does not do this game justice. Fire it up on Tuesday 7th November, crank the volume to 11 and enjoy the ride.
2. Secret of Anubis DoubleMax
Release date: 21st November
For me, Yggdrasil is one of the most exciting providers around, and I’ll try anything that comes out of their stable of studios. This one’s an exclusive release for PlayOJO, so as an OJOer you’ll get a squizz at Secret of Anubis DoubleMax before anyone else in the UK.
This slick Egyptian adventure really pops off the page, and although I don’t have the space to go into the many unusual features, the Pop & Drop feature – cascades, multipliers and Wilds all in one – is the reason I enjoyed the game, and you probably will too.
3. Crazy Pachinko
Provider: Evolution Gaming
Release date: 29th November
If you’ve played Evolution’s Crazy Time game show, you’ll recognise the Pachinko wall game. It’s my favourite Crazy Time feature, so I’m glad it’s now got its own show.
Crazy Time is a wheel of fortune game, whereas this game is a slot combined with a live game show. Scatters are your path to the bonus game where a puck falls down the wall towards multipliers you’ve accumulated along the way. Proper fun from a provider that knows where gaming is headed.
Provider: Play’n GO
Release date: 30th November
It’s six years (almost to the day) that the original Reactoonz slot came out, and I’ve loved all five games in this iconic ‘cluster pays’ series, even if some of the mechanics went way over my head.
I won’t try and explain the rules as they’re written by and for NASA engineers, but you can expect the usual array of power-ups, mega symbols and reel modifiers, plus a 7,000x max win and some insanely good graphics. Just give it a spin and see what you think.
5. Jack Frost Megaways
Provider: Iron Dog
Release date: 30th November
I know, I know, don’t mention Christmas until December. But this one comes out the day before December, so cut me some slack. I had plenty of Xmas-themed games for me to choose from – Sugar Rush Xmas will have its fans, as will Big Bass Christmas Bash (try saying that quickly after your Christmas party) and Blueprint’s Crabbin For Christmas.
But the one I’m looking forward to is Jack Frost Megaways, an icy 117,649 Ways take on their Megaways Jack slot. It’s got loads of reel modifiers, a decent free spins game with increasing multipliers and extra free spins triggered by four consecutive tumbles. The 25,000x max win is a nice touch too.
I’d be interested to know what you make of these new casino games coming out in November, so if you do give ‘em a spin, find us on social media and tell us what you think!
