May promises to be a very exciting month when it comes to upcoming slot releases. Many of the providers have new slots set to be released and we can’t wait to give them a try for real play. But before you do see what they are all about and give them a try in fun play mode on our site first. Let’s see what the most exciting titles for this month are.


Montezuma Slot

Montezuma is a popular name in history and in the gambling industry. This Aztec emperor was an inspiration for many video slots, and the latest one comes from Swint.

Like most other slots from this provider the visual details are on a medium level. What’s a bit strange here is the choice of symbols. If it wasn’t for the main Montezuma symbol and the Pyramid you would never guess this was an Aztec slot to begin with. 

As for the design the slot comes with 10 active paylines which go across 5 reels and 3 rows. The bets range from $0.10 up to a maximum of $100 per spin. Now on to the features.

The Wild symbol in the game is Montezuma himself. He substitutes for all other symbols, except the scatter, but also comes with an extra function attached. When he lands on a reel, he will expand to cover it. The Wild can only land on the three central reels.

The slot also comes with a free spins feature. To trigger it you need to land at least 3 scattered Pyramids on the screen. In return you are awarded with 12 free spins. During the free spins every 1, 2 or 3 Wilds on the screen award 1, 3 or 5 extra free games. Also, every wild win will upgrade one of the lower paying symbols with a higher paying one. 

Fruitopolis Fortune Play

Blueprint Gaming is a popular software provider in the online gambling industry and they have a lot of great slots in their collection. They are always working hard to expand their ranks and one of their latest additions is Fruitopolis Fortune Play. Compared to other Blueprint slots this game differs in every way. At first glance it seems like a simple slot. 

There are a total of 5 reels, with 4 rows and 20 active paylines. But what’s interesting here is that you can play the slot in two modes. The standard one is like we described it now, but the Fortune Play mode expands the game into 4 separate ones. So, you are basically playing the slot on four separate places, increasing your chances of hitting payouts. 

As for the game itself it does come with a few attractive features. The first thing you will notice is that all of the symbols can come stacked across the reels. This way you can end up with some great payouts, especially if you manage to hit a full screen of matching symbols. 

The only real feature in the game is the Mystery symbol. When it lands on the reels it will reveal one of the symbols from the paytable. If you are playing in Fortune Play mode the mystery symbol will transfer to the position of the adjacent game.

If the mystery symbol reveals the Money symbol you trigger the feature. Each money symbol reveals a cash prize and you receive 3 free re-spins. They are reset to 3 each time another money symbol lands on the reels. 

9 Burning Dragons

9 Burning Dragons

9 Burning Dragons is the latest addition to the Wazdan portfolio. If you know this provider you know that their games are unusual to say the least and this slot is no exception. The first detail that will catch your attention is the 3x3 grid. It’s very unusual for modern video slots to follow this design.

Another interesting detail is that there are no paylines in the game. To land a win you need to have 4 or more matching symbols anywhere on the reels. As for the bets players can choose anywhere from $0.10 up to $10,000 per spin, depending on the casino in question.

Another interesting detail about this slot and many other Wazdan titles is the variable variance. You can choose to play the game with low, medium or high volatility. 

In terms of features 9 Burning Dragons doesn't have a lot to offer. The symbols can land stacked on the reels and there is a Wild symbol with a classic substitute function. The only real feature is the Hold the Jackpot. Land at least 3 Dragon symbols to trigger it.

You get 3 free re-spins and each additional dragon symbol that lands on the screen resets them to 3. Collect 6, 7, 8 or 9 of them to get the Mini, Minor, Major or Grand jackpot.  

Freaky Friday Fixed Symbols 

Freaky Friday

Freaky Friday Fixed Symbols is the latest addition to the Stakelogic portfolio. The game comes with an unusual title, but with a familiar game play and bonus features. First let’s start with the design. This game comes with 5 reels and 4 rows in total. There are 20 active paylines and the bets range from $0.20 to $50 per spin. 

As with most other Stakelogic slots players can choose to play with the Super Stake option active. This will double your bet size, but in return you have a chance to trigger the bonus round more often. To trigger the feature in the game you need to land at least 3 Scattered Medical Books anywhere on the reels.

This symbol also acts as a Wild, substituting for all other symbols on the reels. Once the feature is triggered one symbol from the paytable is chosen to act as a Special Expanding symbol. It will expand to cover the reel it lands on and award scattered payouts.

If you trigger the bonus round with the Super Stake on, the special symbol will remain sticky once it lands on the middle 3 reels. This way it will be easier to get that full screen of matching symbols. 

Links of Fire

The first thing you notice about the slot is the colorful design and the fast game play. In terms of design the game features 5 reels with 4 rows. Players can bet anywhere from $0.20 to $20 per spin. 

When you open the game for the first time you instantly notice the jackpots on the left side. To trigger the Link and Win Jackpot feature you need to land at least 6 coin symbols. You get 3 free re-spins, which reset to 3 every time an additional coin symbol lands on the reels.

The coins can come with cash prizes or with the Mini, Minor and Major jackpot. Fill the reels with Coins to land the Grand jackpot, set at 2,500x the stake. The best detail is that if you trigger the feature in the free spins bonus all payouts are doubled in size. 

The free spins are triggered when 3 or more scatters land on the screen. You get 15 free spins with all payouts doubled in size and you can also trigger Link and Win Jackpot feature.
