An Overview of the Best Online Slots in 2022
As we inch towards Christmas and New Year, our attentions naturally start looking ahead to 2023. However, while there are sure to be some exciting new slots coming out next year, we thought we would look back at some of the best new online slots released in 2022.
Throughout the year, we have seen new titles, including Big Bass Splash by Pragmatic Play, Money Train 3 from Relax Gaming, and The Walking Dead Cash Collect by Playtech. However, were any of those deemed good enough to make the top 5 2022 best online slots?
Let’s look as we will bring you what we believe were the best slot releases at the online casinos in 2022!
Gonzita’s Quest (Red Tiger Gaming)
Is there a better way to kick off this list than to review the performance of a slot that had a lot to live up to? The original Gonzo’s Quest slot is among the most played of all time. This time, instead of Gonzo, you follow Gonzita's Quest as she tries to emulate her husband’s/brother’s/father's (we’re still not sure) legendary expeditions.
What we like is that Red Tiger Gaming has tried its best to ensure this title is unique in its own right. Although there are similarities graphically, the slot offers a different main bonus feature. That is a hold-and-win style feature that is a great addition alongside the free spins bonus. As for the RTP of this highly volatile 5, reel, 3-row, and 25-payline slot, that is 95.66%.
Warp Wreckers Power Glyph (Quickspin)
Quickspin has had another exceptional year. Not only has the firm released epic new titles such as this one, but it has also been named the Slot Provider of the Year at the 2022 IGA Awards.
The Warp Wreckers Power Glyph video slot launched at the start of the year and has quickly become one of the best cluster pays slots of all time. That is thanks to a deluge of bonus features, including tumbling reels, free spins, wild symbols, spawning wilds, the Power-Up stack feature, and more. All that takes place on a 5x5 reel format that offers low variance and a top payout of 4,500x your stake!
Muertos Multiplier Megaways (Pragmatic Play)
Pragmatic Play’s Muertos Multiplier Megaways is another popular title in our office and clearly with other casino players around the world. Themed on the ‘Day of the Dea’ in Mexico, this high variance 6-reel slot offers up to 117,649 ways-to-win thanks to the Megaways reel mechanic.
New symbols replace winning symbols meaning the potential of multiple wins per spin. During the free spins feature, however, a global multiplier increases after each win on the reels. Wild multipliers can also multiply that global multiplier to bring the possibility of massive multipliers by the end of the feature. You can even buy straight into that bonus for 100x your stake via the Buy Bonus feature!
Elvis Frog Trueways (BGaming)
Here at PlayCasino, we are big fans of BGaming, and that is because of the quality the iGaming developer perpetually produces. Elvis Frog Trueways is the third in a series that started with the hugely popular Elvis Frog Vegas. It is a 6-reel slot that carries an RTP of 96.79% and up to 262, 144 ways-to-win.
It also has some fantastic bonus features. Those include a free spins round with wild multipliers and a Coin Respin feature that might land you a major jackpot. In terms of graphics and animations, Elvis Frog Trueways also excels as it looks fantastic on all desktop and mobile devices!
John Hunter and the Book of Tut Respin (Pragmatic Play)
The ‘John Hunter’ series is one of the most popular out there, and in 2022, Pragmatic Play gave us all pleasure by releasing another. John Hunter and the Book of Tut Respin takes you on another treasure-lade adventure. As you go hunting ancient artifacts and hidden gems, you might just uncover the top payout of 5,500x your stake.
As with most ‘Book’ slots, this game centers on the wild/scatter book symbol and a free spins round with a randomly chosen expanding symbol. Essentially, if you’re a fan of this series or any ‘Book’ slots, John Hunter and the Book of Tut Respin is certainly worth a look. In fact, check out all the titles that made our top 5!
Which do you think is the best of the best in terms of 2022 new slot releases? Perhaps you think another video slot that didn't make the list is the best? Either way, we’re sure you will agree they are among the better titles launched this year. Hopefully, 2023 will prove just as fruitful!
