News and updates


Welcome Lucksome!

This day in slots starts off with the introduction of a new games provider – Lucksome! This very young studio is formed by industry veterans, and makes part of Blueprint Gaming. Its first game is Divine Links, a 5-reel, 3-row slot based around the Greek myths. We then go for a buzz, as Swintt's Gelee Royal is a 5-reel, 3-row slot themed around bees and honey! Golden Castle brings a new game concept from Fantasma Games with the Titanways system, while Run Amuck is a High 5 Games cluster slot that has you take part in strange experiments! Peter & Sons closes off today's games with The Mafiosi, a slot featuring expanding wilds and a free spins round you can potentially upgrade to Super and even Mega form. 

Divine Links Gameplay and Features 

The first slot from newcomer Lucksome, Divine Links is a 5-reel slot themed around Greek mythology. It starts off with 3 rows, allowing for 20 paylines. Among the symbols on the reels are golden coins, which are key for the Lux Reels feature. This is a Hold and Spin-style round that takes place on an expanded 5-reel, 4-row slot. You get 3 respins with which to land as many more coins or hearts as possible. Coins hold cash values while hearts turn into random bonus symbols, namely new coins, scatters or 2x multipliers. Land 2 scatters during this round for the free spins, which take place involve a choice of 3 volatility options, low, medium or high. 

Gelee Royal Gameplay and Features 

Swintt brings the buzz in Gelee Royal, a game that is all about bees and honey. This is a 5-reel, 3-row slot with a total of 20 paylines formed by symbols that include yellow flowers, blue flowers, a trio of worker bees and, of course, the queen. The traditional A, K, Q, J and 10 card royals also appear on the reels as the low pays. The hive is the wild, able to substitute for all symbols and add a random multiplier of either 2x or 3x to wins it makes part of. As for the scatter, this is the jar of honey. Land all 3 on reels 1, 3 and 5 for a round of 10 free spins with a sticky wilds feature! (Please note this game is not available in the UK). 

Golden Castle Gameplay and Features 

Golden Castle is a 6-reel, 6-row slot based around what developer Fantasma Games dubs the "Titanways" system. Essentially, the 10 paying symbols can appear on the reels in 5 different sizes, 1x1, 1x2, 1x3, 2x2 and 3x3. The height of a symbol does not impact its value, while 1x2, 1x2 and 1x3 symbols count as 1 symbols. The bigger 2x2 and 3x3 symbols, on the other hand, count as 1 symbol on each reel they cover. Payouts take place in a manner similar to traditional slots, as Titanways take place whenever 3 or more matching symbols land on adjacent reels, starting from reel 1 and moving from left to right. 

Run Amuck Gameplay and Features 

High 5 Games' Run Amuck invites us to participate in a mysterious experiment taking place on a 7x7 grid filled with strange chemical creatures. This is a cluster slot, meaning the aim is to form clusters of 4 or more matching symbols that are horizontally or vertically adjacent to each other. Forming such a cluster activates the Racking Up Riches feature. This has the symbols forming the cluster upgrade into higher-paying forms before all other symbols on the grid disappear. If this leads to the formation of another cluster then the process repeats, until there are no more new clusters on the grid. 

The Mafiosi Gameplay and Features 

Peter & Sons takes us to the underworld in The Mafiosi, a 5-reel, 3-row, 243-payline slot in the developer's typical distinctive style. The game features wilds which, when making part of a win, will expand to cover the entire reels. Wilds also bring a progressive multiplier feature, as each appearing wild increases the multiplier by +1. Land 2 scatters to earn 10 free spins where any other scatters landed are collected in the progress bar. Fill this to 70% for a round of Super Free Spins on an expanded 5-reel, 4-row slot. You can choose to play this round or continue collecting scatters for a chance at the Mega Free Spins, which add a 2x multiplier in the mix. (Please note this game is not available in the UK).

Kaiserwetter is a classic-style slot with a twist based around the sun symbol, 1717 Caribbean Pirates takes you to a random island whenever you trigger its free spins feature and Mojito Beach is a chill slot with the titular cocktail as the highest paying symbol on its 5 reels.
