RTP 96.20%

If you love Play’n GO’s legendary Book of Dead slot, you’ll enjoy the provider’s new title featuring an Ancient Egypt theme.

In January, Pilgrim of Dead will hit the screens bringing familiar symbols, ten fixed paylines, and a free spins feature with a twist.

When the tomb appears on the reels, it triggers five free spins and randomly selects one symbol that gets expanding powers.

You can even get a reroll if you don’t like the first symbol you get, but this option is only possible once. Furthermore, the first time your expanding symbol lands on a reel, it becomes sticky and stays in place for the next roll, thus increasing your winning chances.

The action will take place on five reels and three rows and feature ten paylines. Although the special features are still unknown, the maximum win of 21,600x your stake should be a reason enough to try out this slot as soon as it sees the light of day.

RTP 96.17% – 96.5%

Players who fancy medium-spooky slots will welcome Horror Hotel from Relax Gaming with open arms.

The gameplay happens on a 6×6 grid and has a 96.17% RTP which can go up to 96.5% if you buy a bonus round.

As for special features, Horror Hotel offers the Mystery Symbol feature along with some free spins and multipliers.

Software Fantasma Games
Slot Type Video Slot
Progressive No
Bonus features Free Spins, Wild Train and Dropping Wilds, Mystery Feature, Walking Wilds
RTP 94.25%

Even though Goat Rush may not sound too exciting for an online slot, this title from Fantasma Games deserves your attention by all means. Not only does the game have stunning graphics, but it also comes with a huge number of rewarding features.

First off, every winning line triggers a respin, and this goes on until one of the following spins produces no wins. Then, there’re walking wilds which move one spot to the left with every spin and trigger the Gold Multiplier once they leave the grid. Finally, you’ll benefit from the Wild Train and Dropping Wilds, and find common ground with this slot with classic free spins and Mystery Feature.

Neon Villains DoubleMax, Yggdrasil Gaming

Software Yggdrasil Gaming
Slot Type Video Slot
Progressive No
Bonus features Buy Bonus, Free Spins, DoubleMax, Golden Bet
RTP 96%  (Releases 31st of January 2023)

Yggdrasil is known for creative, high-quality slots, and their newest release confirms the provider has brought its tradition into the new year.

Instead of picking an infamous villain and telling its story, Yggdrasil framed several bad guys in neon colors and stuffed the game with DoubleMax multipliers and free spins. However, you’ll find Dropdown Wins the most interesting of all features as it has the potential to keep you on the lucky path.

After a win, the winning symbols will disappear from the reels and leave gaps for new symbols to jump in. But one of the gaps will make space for a wild, which will automatically make the next spin more lucrative.
