Staff Writer New Casinos & Games, Betsoft, NetEnt 2,696

Okay, so May is here, and we all know what that means – time to pick top video slots to play! Seriously, mates – it’s our favourite thing to do at the beginning of each month.

Last month, for instance, we got to meet a heap of beguiling slots that we quite loved. Some April releases rocked our world – we’re looking at you Back to Venus and Neon Rush Splitz – some not as much. Nevertheless, it was a fun month.

Now that we are back on track, it’s time to see which games we are going to meet in May. Players get ready for colourful slots, charming features, and bombastic payouts. Here is our list of the 10 best video slots to play for real money in May 2020.

  1. Wizard of the Woods – Microgaming
  2. Blood Moons Wilds – Yggdrasil
  3. Atlantis – Red Tiger
  4. Diamond Duke – Quickspin
  5. Survivor – Big Time Gaming
  6. Gods of Gold InfiniReels – NetEnt
  7. Robin Hood’s Wild Forest – Red Tiger
  8. Quest to the West – Betsoft
  9. Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena – Play’n GO
  10. Street Fighter II: The World Warrior – NetEnt

Wizard of the Woods – Microgaming

Wizard of the Woods is the first slot that we are going to meet in May. In fact, it’s out today! This charming magic adventure in the forest is the product of 2By2, one of Microgaming’s famous studios. The company behind the title is a praised independent studio that delivers world-class content to Microgaming operators. Wild Krakatoa and Golden Tides are the most famous products to come out of 2by2 Gaming’s creative studio.

Now, back to the game! Wizard of the Woods offers the familiar colourful profile that we have in the previous release. It’s also quite entertaining, despite the theme being something that we already saw a million times before. From the first look of the game, it’s evident that the developer wanted to create a visually striking game. Suffice it to say; the author achieved that. As for the layout, there are 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 paylines. High volatility and 96.02% RTP complement the game as well. What differentiates this slot from the rest is the fact that you can win a massive payout in just a few spins. All in all, it’s a game that, if you are into magical forests and witchcraft, you should not miss.


Blood Moons Wilds – Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil Gaming’s first May release is the Blood Moons Wilds video slot. There is no need to introduce Yggdrasil Gaming as you are probably quite familiar with its content. This video slot is just like the previous slots – visually striking with attention-grabbing design and high payout potentials. All in all, it shows off Yggdrasil Gaming artistry at its best.

The game is so complex that we do not know where to start. However, let’s keep it light – it revolves around New Orleans during the Victorian era. And you all know what New Orleans stands for! The game is dripping with cryptic, supernatural elements. The fact that werewolves stand atop the reels is a significant hint what’s about to happen once you hit Spin. Yggdrasil Gaming composed this slot using 5 reels, 3 rows, and 20 paylines. Blood Moons Wilds’ RTP equals the previous game from our list, but they differ in terms of volatility. While Wizard of the Woods has high volatility, in this game, that level is medium. If you enjoy playing supernatural slots dipped in the Victorian era, Blood Moons Wilds is a hit for you. The game is out on May the 7th.


 Atlantis – Red Tiger

Red Tiger and its video slots are famous around the world. No matter where you live, you’ll indeed have more than enough quality content to enjoy if you pick Red Tiger. Some of the best UK casinos keep Red Tiger games in featured sections non-stop! And it’s there that you can look for Atlantis slot once it comes out on May the 7th. In true Red Tiger fashion, Atlantis offers you a chance to play for 5,000x the stake payouts. Its mythical theme goes well with the entire approach that this company has to online gaming. An ancient mystery, a lost city, and hidden treasures just scream Red Tiger.

But what can you find in Atlantis? Well, right now, there is not much to say, except it offers a 5×4 grid with 30 paylines. Additionally, Atlantis boasts high volatility which means wins will be rare, but massive. You can play it across any device in the house, as long as you have a stable internet connection. The lost city Atlantis from Red Tiger arrives at casinos on May the 7th.


Diamond Duke – Quickspin

The only slot that we have on this list from Quickspin is Diamond Duke. Diamond Duke is also the only game that Quickspin plans to release in May. So, it must be good, right? True! Diamond Duke is a remarkable classic slot with an American 1950’s blend. Quickspin is taking you to the visually appealing American diners for a round of milkshakes and wins. The cherry on top is the max payout worth 8,100x the stake.

A key feature for this release is the ‘portrait first’ approach. Quickspin always keeps things interesting, so this game will have a great gaming experience on mobile devices. There is also high volatility and 96.23% RTP. Unfortunately, there is no available demo right now, and we cannot tell you the pros and cons of Diamond Duke gameplay. But don’t worry, we will keep you posted! Diamond Duke slot hits the casinos on May the 12th.


Survivor Megaways – Big Time Gaming

Players of the world, rejoice! Big Time Gaming is rewarding our patience with a brand-new Megaways™ video slot Survivor. When we first caught wind of the new mechanics, we were thrilled. However, we could not know what type of slot we could expect. But Big Time Gaming showed us once again that it is the king of innovation. Survivor Megaways™ is a superb video slot with show-stopping 100,842 ways to win. If you are wondering why the game bears the title as the famous TV show, it’s because it is its slot version. Big Time Gaming and the show producers teamed up to deliver this awesome video game to our favourite casinos.

We will try not to spoil the juicy game details for you, but we got to talk about the layout and design. It’s a 6-reel adventure on a distant island with contestants fighting for survival. It takes after the original show, so the features and the reel mechanics resemble the viral reality show. Plus, you can win 44,000x the stake in Survivor. Not exactly the main prize as in the show, but it’s still quite worthy of your time.


Gods of Gold InfiniReels – NetEnt

Now that we opened the topic of lost cities, it’s time to head to Mesopotamia. NetEnt and its upcoming release Gods of Gold InfiniReels is a stark adventure amid a king’s tomb. The mythical, ancient theme with hidden treasures is, it appears, quite a popular theme among May video slots. Nevertheless, there is a reason for this slot’s inclusion on our list (and it’s not just the provider). With this slot, NetEnt will officially introduce a brand-new mechanic InfiniReels. And trust us, it’s a feature that you’ll want to try out.

In the game, you will start with 3 reels and 3 rows, plus 27 paylines. However, once you start winning, you’ll notice that the reels are expanding! One by one, the game will add an extra reel to the game up until you stop winning. There is no limit to the number of reels that you can get inside the game, hence the name InfiniReels. Oh, and you get infinite winning ways too. The designers at NetEnt swear this is one of the most immersive titles they ever created. And we agree! This epic tomb-raiding-with-undead-essences adventure is a great game that arrives on May the 14th.


Robin Hood’s Wild Forest – Red Tiger

Okay, now that we covered the mythical and fantastical themes, it’s time to get back to good old fantasy. Robin Hood, our favourite outlaw, is returning in Red Tiger’s new Robin Hood’s Wild Forest. This folk legend is becoming more and popular these days, as this is the third slot that we encountered in the last two months. Nevertheless, Red Tiger gave it a special spin so that you could enjoy it even more.

Inside Robin Hood’s Wild Forest, guess what you’ll have as special guests? A plethora of Wilds, of course. You cannot have a game that has a ‘Wild’ in the title sans having Wilds on the reels. The name of the features also carries the names of favourite characters from the legend of Robin Hood. Bear in mind that, despite its adrenaline-fueled theme, the game has a medium range. Red Tiger created a game that is perfect for medium rollers, as there’s low volatility, and only 1,000x the stake payout. Additionally, you get to play on a 5×3 grid with 10 paylines. The game drops on May the 14th, just like NetEnt’s Gods of Gold InfiniReels.


Quest to the West – Betsoft

The first title to the game was Journey to the West, but now it bears the title Quest to the West. We are not sure why Betsoft decided to change the name of the game only weeks before the release. Probably because it rhymes better, we guess. Either way, the game arrives on May the 21st. You will be able to find it in most international online casinos that work with Betsoft, including some of the best US casinos.

Quest to the West is all about East Asia. The Monkey King is the main character whom you follow on his quest to conquer the West. He intends to get rich there, and you can use that opportunity to grab the spoils as well. Quest to the West offers a max payout amount of 1,260x the stake. In case you missed it, the theme revolves around Asia, so the design and visuals follow the piece down to a T. We do not doubt you will be impressed with the look of the game just like we were.


Street Fighter II: The World Warrior – NetEnt

The last title on our list of top 10 video slots for May is another NetEnt game. NetEnt is one of our favourite slot providers, and the reason for such adoration lies in the quality of the content. Simply put, NetEnt never disappoints. And so, the long-awaited Street Fighter II: The World Warrior slot is coming to our screens! With this game, you can visit the realm of the Street Fighter again.

This unique branded slot is a product of NetEnt’s collaboration with Capcom, the company behind the video game. Our slot provider decidedly preserved the game’s authentic design, which includes visuals and animations in the shape of an arcade game. We guess you are as excited to return to Street Fighter II as we are, so here are the quick stats. It has a 5×5 grid and uses cluster pays. You can enjoy the 96.96%RTP and high volatility as well. Street Fighter II: The World Warrior arrives at your favourite casinos on May the 21st.


Rich Wilde and the Shield of Athena – Play’n GO

Rich Wilde returns! Our favourite explorer and the star of numerous Play’n GO titles is back with another adventure. This is the fifth slot in which Rich Wilde takes the mantle and leads the players to unchartered territories. However, there is a slight difference from the previous slots. Rich and his daughter Cat form a dynamic duo hellbent on discovering the mysteries of Atlantis.

The game setup resembles the first Book of Dead. The cascading reels are gone, and instead, we have the traditional 5×3 grid with 10 paylines again. Inside the game, you’ll find high volatility, 96.25% RTP, and heaps of features that boost the gameplay. If you like Rich and want to see what he is up to this time, we have great news. You can find it in the biggest online casinos starting May the 28th.
