Naturally, it can only be a bonus that Tornado: Farm Escape has two rewarding special features called Tornado and Storm.
Rage to Riches – Play'n GO – Casino Extra, Vera & John Casino, Florijn Casino
Play’n GO designed one of the most eye-opening slots of last year in Rage to Riches. Inspired by the 1986 classic arcade game Rampage, Rage to Riches has a retro visual style and even features monster that will appear on screen to wreck the city after a cold streak of wins.
Rage to Riches is so appealing to play because it feels genuinely fun and is filled with surprising moments. The fact that players can laugh at a city getting wrecked as they rack up the winnings made Rage to Riches such a special release in 2015.
The Vikings – Endorphina – PlayFrank Casino, BitCasino, & Omni Slots Casino
Fans of the hit TV show Vikings are telling the world about just how awesome these historical people are. Well, casino players can now compete with Vikings without fear of having their treasure stolen.
A Viking ship is used to serve as the wild symbol, which can make up for missing symbols. Another key feature is that three scatter symbols will unleash free symbols into the wild.
Neon Reels – iSoftBet – Real Deal Bet Casino, 10Bet Casino, & LeoVegas Casino
iSoftBet has developed an eye-catching 3D slot that integrates retro visuals like bells, cherries, lemons, and 7s with modern graphical technology for superb results. Neon Reels also depicts stylish neon lighting against a black background for dramatic effect.
From a gaming standpoint, Neon Reels also excels. Players who experience this game will get to compete for a progressive jackpot. Those seeking the pot will need to line up a maximum bet before landing five jackpot symbols on the same payline.
Machine Gun Unicorn – Genesis Gaming – Video Slots Casino, PocketCasino EU, & BETAT Casino
Machine Gun Unicorn earns its place on the list for being the wackiest game of the year. In fact, not another game comes close in this regard. Beyond featuring magical unicorns with machines guns, the slot also features monstrous zombies that have to be fought off.
Playing Machine Gun Unicorn is also a pleasure because of how the slot is designed. Genesis Gaming has designed the five-reel slot to feature just 10 paylines, but these are active both ways. Basically, this means that Machine Gun Unicorn is more affordable to play than many other slots.
Doubles – Yggdrasil Gaming – Casino Estrella, Mr Green Casino, & EuroLotto Casino
Yggdrasil Gaming has adopted the Microgaming approach to slot development by making its Doubles slot with 243 ways of winnings, which is certainly an advantage to players who want to win more often. The sheer variety of winning combinations makes Doubles so appealing.
Doubles will also appeal to players for the reason that free spins can be triggered. This feature will let players pick a symbol that will be doubled in value. Players can play it as safe or as risky as they like.
