Keep 'Em

Provider: Hacksaw Gaming
Release Date: 2nd May
RTP: 96.27%
Maximum Win: 10,000x
Notable Features: Bonus Buy, Respins, Sticky Symbols
Number Of Reels: Six

The sequel to Hacksaw Gaming's extremely popular Stick 'Em, Stack 'Em, Canny the Can and the Book of Time, and Drop 'Em game slots, Keep 'Em sees its iconic 1920s-style character Canny The Can return for another round of inane smiling, arm shaking, and leg bending. This time, he's joined by Bob the Bird - a somewhat creepy-looking companion with crosses where its eyes should be.

Three bonus games are available here - the standard Free Spins round, known as Keep 'Em Comin', which is triggered when three Free Spins symbols appear anywhere on the reels. And then there is the enhanced Free Spins round, known as Keep Your Friends Close..., which activates when four or more scatters appear anywhere on the reels. Finally, there is Keep Your Canny Closer! - the most volatile and generous bonus round available and one that is capable of delivering the maximum winning multiplier.

All of the games revolve around the premise of cash symbols with corresponding prize amounts worth up to 100x and a collect symbol, or the "Get 'Em" symbol. The more cash symbols you can land on the reels simultaneously with a Get 'Em symbol, the bigger the prize multiplier.

It's yet another twist on the collect feature that has been a craze in recent slots - and we enjoyed Hacksaw's unique and distinctive take on the mechanic.

Retro Sweets

Provider: Push Gaming
Release Date: 2nd May
RTP: 96.49%
Maximum Win: 10,000x
Notable Features: Bonus Bet, Bonus Buy, Multiplier, Collector Symbols, Wild Multipliers, Prize Multipliers

And no one captures the misty-eyed feeling of retro nostalgia quite like Push Gaming's Retro Tapes – a hit online slot game featuring all the sights and sounds of a music era frozen in head-cassette time.

Now, Push Gaming has released a sequel to their popular game – Retro Sweets.

It has many of the same mechanics as Retro Tapes, including wild multipliers acting as scatter symbols. Land three of them to trigger the bonus and multiply instant prizes together.

The one major difference is the size of the random multiplier, which can reach up to 10x.

While it isn't massively different from its predecessor Retro Tapes, slot enthusiasts often sit up and listen when Push Gaming releases a game.

Pug Thugs of Nitropolis

Provider: Elk Studios
Release Date: 7th May
RTP: 96.52%
Maximum Win: 25,000x
Notable Features: Nitro Reels, Linked Paylines, Collect Feature

Who doesn't like pugs? They're small, cute, and have funny faces. They can also be your best buds in a post-apocalyptic world, and help you to huge wins as part of Elk Studios' brand-new slot.

Unlike traditional slot games where winning combinations must start from the leftmost reel, in Pug Thugs, winning combinations can start from any side. This means that players have even more chances to win with each spin.

There are also several bonus features to look out for:

  • Make Big: At random, one symbol is selected from the screen and turned into a giant 2x2, 3x3 or 4x4 symbol.
  • Collect: Similar to other popular collect feature games, like Razor Shark and Big Bass Bonanza, this exciting feature allows you to collect all coins present on the grid and then triggers a respin with all coin positions. If more coins are collected during the respin, another one is triggered, and this can continue until no coins remain on the screen.
  • Nitro Wild: When this feature is activated, all Nitro Reels turn into Nitro Wilds. Wild symbols substitute for regular symbols and can help players create winning combinations. 
  • Nitro Match: When triggered, a random symbol from the grid is selected and appears on all Nitro Reels, increasing your chances of forming winning combinations with that symbol.

Spark Of Genius

Provider: Play'n Go
Release Date: 14th May
RTP: 96.30%
Maximum Win: 10,000x
Notable Features: Cascading reels, reel modifiers

Play'n Go is back with a slot that requires players to fill up an energy meter by putting together a string of wins and creating unique combinations. The more combos you make, the higher the meter fills.

There are no symbols - just a complex network of pipes. Those pipes need to connect for a winning combination to register.

There are two sides to the energy meter - Manifest Energy and Resonant Energy, each side has three different reel modifiers.

Manifest Energy

  • Relay - Removes 7 to 11 circuit symbols.
  • Overload - Up to six destroy symbols remove random adjacent circuit symbols.
  • Empire Energy Spin - A 2x2 inactivated Transformer symbol with a x3 multiplier is placed in the centre of the grid.

Resonant Energy

  • Gyrota - Rotates 3 to 7 circuit symbols.
  • Dynamo - Adds up to six special circuit symbols, with four connection points, on the grid.
  • Free Energy Spin - One free spin. With each win in the spin, the multiplier increases through x1, x4, x8, x12, x16, and x20, applying to all wins.

Peaky Blinders 2

Provider: Pragmatic Play
Release Date: 30th May
RTP: 96.52%
Maximum Win: 25,000x
Notable Features: Wild symbols, free spins round

We haven't seen Peaky Blinders 2 in testing yet, but if it's anything like its predecessor, we are excited to see how it gets on.

A highly popular online video slot game based on the hit British TV series of the same name, Peaky Blinders, was developed by Pragmatic Play; this game features all of your favourite characters from the show and brings the gritty 1920s world of the Peaky Blinders to life on the reels.

We can't wait to see the job Pragmatic Play 2 does with the sequel.
