With 2021 barely under way, we happily close the chapter on 2020 and welcome the next. Although the Christmas holidays are now clearly in the rear-view mirror, we all still need something new to look forward to when we need a break.
For that reason, we wanted to remind our valued South African players that you can still enjoy many great Bitcoin slots throughout January.
We also look forward to all the new releases for desktop, and iOS/Android smartphones and tablets coming our way.
With that said, we’d like to introduce you to six great Bitcoin slots that we think you’ll take an instant liking to for reasons that will become apparent.
New Year Riches from Play’n GO
The new year is a time for new beginnings, and there’s no better time to begin the countdown than New Year’s Eve. With a collective sigh of relief, Play’n GO rings in the promise of 2021 from famous international landmarks like the Statue of Liberty, Taj Mahal and St Basil’s Cathedral.
Ring in the New Year with class on this 5×3 playing area slot holding 20 fixed paylines. And what better way is there to celebrate than with a bottle of champagne and a midnight clock? Nothing could be more exciting, other than the chance of winning a jackpot of up to 5,000x bet!
The champagne tastes even more delicious as it also happens to be the wild, substituting for all regular symbols. Land five of these on a payline to instantly win 250x bet. The midnight clock is a scatter, used to unlock the 10 New Year Free Spins feature. The starting spin comes with a 2x win multiplier, and every subsequent spin increases it by 2 up until 20x on the final spin.
With medium volatility and RTP of 96.48%, this well-designed slot ushers in a world of new hopes and possibilities for 2021.
Elvis Frog in Vegas from BGaming
Celine Dion may be a hard act to follow, but Elvis Frog is about to give her a run for her money! BGaming introduces Elvis Frog in Vegas, whose fame is second only to the Walt Disney Company’s Kermit the Frog.
The amusing cartoon-like slot is played on a 5×3 grid with 25 fixed paylines. Collect up to 2,500x bet or unlock one of three ‘Tutti-frutti’ jackpots: Mini, Major or Mega.
Elvis Frog just so happens to be the wild symbol that can substitute for regular symbols. Land him in sets of 5 on the same payline, and you’ll be hopping with 500x!
Elvis Frog’s star on the Las Vegas walk of stars is a scatter appearing on the odd-numbered reels, used to unlock 5 free games with ‘Blazing Reels’. Here, a 3×3 sized mega symbol covers reels 2-5. Free games can be re-triggered indefinitely every time you land three additional scatter symbols.
Find 6 coins on the reels on any spin to trigger the Coin Respin. The feature is played only with coins giving you a chance to collect more with different values. Land a Mini or Major jackpot coin to win the respective prizes or cover all 15 spaces with coins to win the Mega Jackpot!
Finally, put your winnings all on the line with the optional suit gamble or colour gamble features.
Who says Elvis is dead? Spot him on stage or driving down the Vegas Strip in his famous pink Cadillac when you play this amusing medium-high volatility slot. Viva Las Vegas!
Gladiators from Endorphina
When you think about Ancient Roman gladiators, the word ‘cute’ likely doesn’t come to mind. No, you won’t find Russell Crowe playing the Roman general Maximus Decimus Meridius. Here you will find seahorse-driven chariots, and armoured fish with all manner of weaponry: pitchforks, weighted (fish) nets, fish hook maces, blades and more.
Gladiators from Endorphina welcomes you to a Colosseum on the seafloor, the backdrop for this 5×3 (reels x rows) and 1-21 variable paylines slot. The game offers maximum rewards of 300,000 coins.
Special symbols begin with the laurel wild that substitutes for all regular symbols. A chained shark, the underwater equivalent to a chained lion/tiger of the Roman Colosseum, is the cleverly-assigned bonus symbol. It awards 10, 20 or 50 free games with a 2x win multiplier in sets of 3, 4 or 5. There are 5 possible high-paying gladiator symbols in the game. On each free game round, the one that appears the most transforms into a laurel wild for the next spin. Unless a warrior lands on one of the laurels, it will disappear.
Finally, the game comes with an optional gamble feature to play up to 10 consecutive times if you dare.
Long before the gladiator battles on land came the gladiator spectacles of the sea. Fight for glory but die with honour in Gladiators!
Temple of Dead from Evoplay
After the original Indiana’s Quest in 2017, Evoplay returns with the sequel in Temple of Dead. Follow the explorer Indiana Jones on another adventure. What secrets will he unlock from Ancient Egypt this time?
The 5×3 (reels x rows) slot is played on 10 paylines with a maximum payout of 10,000x bet. Can you defeat 3 priestesses and make it to the final chamber which houses Pharaoh’s treasure?
To unlock the temple’s mysteries, the adventurer must collect scatter-wild book symbols. Collect up to 200x bet on 5 books. Collect 3 or more books to unlock 10 free spins that can be re-triggered. Before the free spins, a regular symbol is chosen to become expanding. If a winning combination can be created by expanding, this chosen symbol will cover all three rows.
Presenting beautifully laid out illustrations and Egyptian-themed soundtrack, this high volatility slot is sure to separate the brave from the timid.
Legend of Cleopatra Megaways from Playson
In December 2020, Playtech released Legend of Cleopatra Megaways™. It represented a brilliant update, to the original February 2018 slot, using the popular Megaways mechanic licensed from BTG. Drawing inspiration from the captivating Ancient Egyptian Queen, just try not to fall under her seductive spell!
Travel back to a time long ago of Pharaohs and gods. Using 6 reels and up to 200,704 Megaways™, this is not a slot to be missed. The queen is the key to a legendary 6,584x jackpot.
Only fitting, Cleopatra is the top-paying symbol unique for her ability to create a winning payline with as little as two symbols. There to assist, the wild symbol appears on reels 2-5, replacing regular symbols.
The Megaways mechanic randomly and independently determines the number of symbols on each reel. With symbols ranging from 2 to 7, the number of ways can vary from 324 to 200,704. A bonus row above the reels 2-5 opens up even more possibilities.
Collapsing symbols means that symbols involved in a win disappear, allowing symbols from above to fill in the spaces. It can create new opportunities to win, prolonging the round for free. Symbols in the top row are not replaced after collapsing. Instead, collapse all top row symbols to trigger 12 free spins. Do it again for 5 more.
Between one and three scarab badges may appear on one of the top row symbols. When one of these symbols collapses a multiplier increases by one for the payout before resetting in the main game. During the free spins only, the multiplier does not reset.
Finally, players can buy their way into the free spins for a price with the Buy Bonus feature.
Retaining the charm of the original, immerse yourself in the magnificent sights and sounds of ancient Egypt. In the presence of Queen Cleopatra, the slot’s high volatility and 95.84% RTP is not the only reason for your racing heart.
10,001 Nights from Red Tiger Gaming
No one quite knows what magic the mystical sands of the Arabian desert have witnessed. Red Tiger Gaming explores this fascination in 10,001 Nights.
Drawing inspiration from the Islamic Golden Age of Middle Eastern folktales, the story develops over a 5×4 (reels x rows) and 20 paylines playing area. The sands are vast and can conceal many things – perhaps even 10,001x bet!
The key to finding out lies in golden oil lamps, which you can collect on every spin. These lamps are part of a progressive feature to unlock four lamps situated above the playing area. Collect 6, 13, 21 and finally, 30 to unlock the ability to trigger features: Imperial Spin (free re-spin with no low-paying symbols), random wilds, multi pick (win multiplier) and mega wilds (1×4).
If you believe you’re destined for great things, then the Destiny Spins may be your chance to shine with 8-12 free spins. You may even re-trigger 6-8 more if the fates allow.
Artwork including red-gold silk curtains and exotic animals reflect the sort of lavish riches that you’d hope for from a high volatility slot. We can think of 10,001 reasons to play.
