News about the latest slots


News about the latest slotsThe UK online casinos grow every week with new slots additions to the portfolio. With so many different providers and game studios, it’s interesting how they’re being able to deliver new videoslots as often as they do. Of course, it has to do a lot with the competition between the providers but it’s also impressive to see how high the quality is and how innovative the features are month after month. When it comes to new slots on the market we mainly focus on the releases from the biggest names. However, if we get the feeling that there are new slots coming from smaller game studios that are worth a shot as well we will write about them too. Here are some of the main game providers slots releases we’re looking closer at:

NetEnt: This is one of the leading companies, with good reason. NetEnt is a Swedish game studio that develops at least one big slot every month. Sometimes we’re lucky and they launch two titles in one month. Their slots are always on top with great graphics and sounds. During the last years, they’ve built slots based on movies and tv-series with authentic sound and graphics. Many players are drawn to NetEnt’s slots because of the cool features that keep the pulse high with every spin.

Microgaming: One of NetEnt’s biggest competitors is Microgaming. They also tend to build slots with authentic graphics and sound but when it comes to the visual part we do think NetEnt does it a little bit better. However, this doesn’t remove the fact that Microgaming still attracts numerous players with their slots and that they are one of the main names when it comes to casino games online.

Yggdrasil: We really like Yggdrasil Gaming and their slots. They have another touch to their graphic but the quality is first class. One of the things that make Yggdrasil’s slots stand out are the features in the games. For example in the Jungle Book where the animals keep Mowgli company with their own special features. Or the Orient Express where you will travel to different places while you play.

Quickspin: Just a few years ago Quickspin was bought by another giant, Playtech. The brand remains the same though and Quickspin evolves with every slot they do. With soft graphics and dreamy themes and animations, it’s clear why their slots are so popular. Make sure you try both Big Bad Wolf and Dwarfs Gone Wild – those are our personal favourites from Quickspin.

Play’n GO: Play’n GO is a Swedish provider that also releases new slots on a monthly basis. They are famous for slots such as Book of Dead and Reactoonz. A lot of players are drawn to the slots from Play’n GO because of the unique features and the Play’n GO’s slots are either a huge success or they get forgotten rather quickly but they sure are one of the bigger and better providers out there.

But there are, as we mentioned, many more. So if we, for example, find a slot from Big Time Gaming, Thunderkick, Push Gaming or maybe Red Tiger Gaming that we like, you can be sure that we’re going to share the news with you on this page.

Check out our top lists

Now and then we try to put together different top lists for you. It’s a way for you to find and explore new slots on different themes. The market is filled with thousands of slots and some of the themes keep on returning. That’s why we compile top lists with slots based on, for example, Hollywood movies but it can also be on holidays, animals, magic or something else.

Read about real jackpot winners

In this section, you can also read about real jackpot winners. Massive jackpot wins don’t happen every day but a couple of times a year. For example, Microgaming’s slot Mega Moolah made seven people multi-millionaires in 2018. Then there are several other progressive jackpot games such as Mega Fortune, Hall of Gods and Divine Fortune that you can try your luck on. When we find out that a player wins one of the mega jackpots in these games we try to dig up everything we can about the story behind the lucky one and provide you with the good news.

Keep up with the laws about gambling

Another aspect of gambling online is that there are laws that need to be followed. As you probably know there is something called the UK Gambling Commission. In order for a casino to operate on the market in the UK, they need a license from UKGC. When an online casino gets this license it shows that the company follows all the rules and regulations there is and that you can feel safe while playing there.

Sometimes the laws are changing and that means that the UK casinos have to follow the new rules. Otherwise, they will risk being shut down on the UK market and will no longer be able to offer their entertainment to British players. At BestCasino we try to keep up with all the changes and if there are any we will cover this in separate news articles on this page. However, if you don’t bother so much we can tell you that you will be able to choose among the casinos represented on our website. All of them are licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and therefore they also follow the current laws connected to online gambling.

Learn about new casinos

Even though it’s harder for casinos to get a UK license there still comes new casinos from time to time. We always look for the best new casinos on the market. When we find one that we think meet our requirements to be represented at BestCasino we will add the brand to our website. We will also write news articles about new casinos that are worth checking out. Sometimes we will write news about casinos that you should watch out for that doesn’t offer a safe environment and don’t keep what they promise.

The competition is tough and there are already so many casinos that new ones have a hard time making a name for themselves. However, some new casinos still make it and it mostly has to do with their unique concept.

Become a better casino player

Sure, playing casino games is all about luck and you can’t really do anything about the outcome when you spin the reels on slots or bet on Roulette. Even though, there are ways to become a better casino player. You can’t affect if you win or lose, there are no guarantees. But you can try various strategies that will let you play in a responsible way. We try to give you tips that will come in handy. For example, try slots in free play mode to find new favourites before you actually spend money. Or look at the features and the paytable before you start playing and use bonuses to be able to play for a little longer. Also, it’s a good thing to take your time and find the right casino for you. We will cover this basic knowledge about gambling online in upcoming news articles and we hope they will help you become a better casino player.

Be the first with the latest

Another reason why you should check out our news page on a regular basis is of course that you will be first with the latest when it comes to UK casinos online. Whenever we find out about the news that we think are interesting for players to know about, you can be sure to find the information here. Our goal is to be your first source to the latest news about UK casinos and we hope you will find what you’re looking for at BestCasino from now on.

Keep track of what’s trending

As with everything else we see trends in the iGaming industry. Thanks to the technical development the casinos keep on growing and add new and stunning features. If we look back a decade or so there’s been a massive change. In the beginning, when the online casinos started popping up they weren’t very impressive. They offered slots and virtual table games and not much more. Throughout the years they’ve evolved a lot. Some of the trends we’ve seen are the following:

  • Mobile casinos: When the era of online casinos started there weren’t any mobile casinos. We didn’t even have smartphones, to begin with. Then something started to change. New mobile phones came to life and a new gambling trend was born. The online casinos developed and launched mobile-friendly casinos. At the time the mobile casinos were pretty rare but after a while, more and more casinos added an app or a mobile version of their product. Mobile casinos were trending and today it’s a must-have for any UK casino who wants to compete with other operators.
  • Live casinos: Another casino trend that we’ve seen through the years is live casinos. When the first online casinos were launched the focus was on offering slots. After a while virtual table games also came along – and they’re still going strong today. This means that you’re playing against the computer. However, the casinos wanted to give an authentic feel to the gameplay and this was the start of live casinos. One of the biggest and absolute best providers when it comes to live casino games is Evolution Gaming. When you visit a live casino you get to play against a human dealer, which you keep in touch with through a live chat. Just a couple of years ago live casinos was a smoking hot trend but today it’s also something that we take for granted to find at any UK online casino.
  • Gamification: In the UK one of the current trends is spelled gamification. Not all casinos offer this concept, which basically means there’s something else going on except for the casino games. Usually, it’s some kind of adventure where you can explore another world while collecting experience points and you can find treasures that are bonuses. Some of our favourite casinos with gamification today are Casumo, Casino Heroes and Fantasino. Make sure you check them out if you wish for a little extra excitement while playing online.
