Wild Blood 2 – Play’n GO

Wild Blood 2 is the sequel to the original 2013 Wild Blood slot from Play’n GO. The vampiric release oozes with alluring charms and seducing appeal. The three ever young female vampires will be your hostesses. They will simultaneously represent the game’s highest paying symbols.

The second part of the Wild Blood saga comes on a 6×4 reel grid with 4,096 winning ways. That allows you room to experiment with your winning combinations by collecting your dangerous dames. But be careful, this is a medium variance game with an RTP of just 96.18%.

Cash Connection: Charming Lady – Greentube

Another January addition by Greentube will be Cash Connection Charming Lady slot. Charming Lady features trademark Greentube graphics quality and immersive sound effects If you have played Novomatic’s classic Lucky Lady’s Charm slot, you’ll know what we’re talking about.

This one we are particularly excited about. Microgaming with combined efforts of Crazy Tooth Studio will celebrate the 28th day of 2020 with a new slot. It will be The Incredible Balloon Machine, and it is just that – incredible.

The mesmerising new slot from Microgaming comes with one of a kind configuration. This is definitely not a slot you see every day. There is no reel grid in The Incredible Balloon Machine; there are just balloons. The slot comes with a great winning potential and an RTP of 96.75%. The game’s special feature is WiNCREASE™- Inflate Your Win Feature! Expect to reach new heights with The Incredible Balloon Machine slot.

We expected nothing less from the gaming studio that manufactured Arctic Valor.

Coywolf Cash – Play’n GO

The first month of 2020 finishes off with style. Play’n GO will put forward its last release for the first four weeks of the year. It will be Coywolf Cash, a 5×3 video slot with 576 ways to win. On Coywolf Cash, you can bet anything from €0.10 to €100 per spin. Consequently, you can win 400,000 coins in this highly volatile slot.

Coywolf Cash draws inspiration from the great wilderness and untamed animals. The protagonist is a best, a wild wolf. His friends, hawks, foxes and lynxes will abide on the reels. Every step of the gameplay will run on the engrossing soundtrack. Moreover, each of the animals will make an authentic sound every time it shows up on the columns.
