Throughout 2013, the major online casino software providers all managed to release an abundance of new online casino games. We thought that we should take a look at some of the very best ones, the cream of the crop. These new games were developed by companies such as Microgaming, Playtech, Sheriff Gaming, WMS Gaming, Betsoft Gaming and Net Entertainment (NetEnt).
This won’t be an easy task just listing one slot from each company because each of these innovative software providers released not just one, but several ground-breaking games between them. The best thing that we can do is to point out some true gems for you and ONLY the ones which we believe really stood out above the rest.
The first game that we can take a look at was developed by Betsoft Gaming and the 3D slot in question is called Who Spun It? (WhoSpunIt?), plus we can't forget to mention another cutting edge 3D slot from BetSoft Gaming called The True Sheriff which comes in at a close second.
There’s so much going on with this murder mystery themed slot, Who Spun It? It can be launched instantly in your browser and it generally takes less than one minute to load. It has 5 reels and 30 winning paylines and it is available in the real money mode and in the free play mode. It has a top coin prize worth 32,500 coins and it is literally packed with impressive special features and immersive bonus rounds for you to enjoy.
Collect Clue Spins as you play and watch as the timer counts down to zero (until it triggers the Detective Mode). Match 5 clues to Level Up and once you have solved all 3 evidence clues, you will be able to go on and attempt to solve the murder where you can win a guaranteed bonus prize. Words can’t really explain how awesome this slot really is. If you want to play on this one right now, you can find it at various fully licensed online casinos such as Mr Green Casino and Tropezia Palace Casino.
Playtech released several great slots, but their most action-packed and immersive slot this year had to be one called Spiderman: Attack of the Green Goblin. Microgaming’s best slot of the year is without a doubt The Dark Knight Rises and we reckon that the best slot from Net Entertainment this year was South Park.
WMS Gaming also produced some awesome new games in 2013, but their best release had to be The Wizard of Oz – Ruby Slippers (the second instalment in a series of branded Wizard of Oz themed Slots. One of the other leading software providers that we couldn’t forget to mention was Sheriff Gaming.
This company’s best online slot in 2013 was an ancient Roman themed slot called Spartania, although several other 3D slots from Sheriff Gaming such as Las Vegas Fever, Alawin, Piggy Bank, Oonga Boonga, Beauty and the Nerd and also Crazier Jewelry were all equally as impressive.

This section will take a look back at some of the mobile slots that were launched throughout October and November 2013. Playtech is an industry award winning software provider which has developed an impressive mobile casino solution and the very latest slot machine to arrive on this platform was a branded marvel slot called The Incredible Hulk.
This is a 5 reeled mobile slot which has 25 winning paylines. It is one of Playtech’s most popular titles, so it made sense to make the transition onto mobile. This new mobile slot is connected to the Marvel Multi-Level Progressive Jackpot network, which has a total of four individual accumulating prize pools to play for. It contains several great bonus features such as the Hulk Rage Bonus and the Smash Bonus and it also has a rewarding Free Spins Bonus Round.
The latest mobile slot machine to be released by another award-winning software provider called Microgaming was Thunderstruck 2, which was launched shortly after Halloweenies and What a Hoot were released, which was just in time for Halloween. The impressive mobile casino software from Microgaming is called Microgaming Go.
“Thunderstruck II is one of our most successful games and we are delighted that players can experience the world-renowned slot on any platform and desired choice of device. We recognise the importance of developing games with cross-platform capability; our achievement with Thunderstruck II signifies the start of things to come,” said Microgaming’s Head of Product Channels, Neill Whyte.
BetSoft Gaming released two ground-breaking mobile slot machines called The True Sheriff ToGo™ and True Illusions ToGo™. “The audience for our ToGo™ collection of mobile games is rapidly growing,” said Head of Product Development at Betsoft Gaming, Anthony Locke.
He went on to say, “As this niche market expands, more and more people are choosing the convenience of gaming on the go, and players can be confident that as their desire for mobile games grows, so will our library of available ToGo™ titles.
We are consistently bringing classic Slots3™ favourites to the mobile marketplace, while developing the new content that will define the future of iGaming.”
The other leading software provider to have recently increased its portfolio of mobile slot machines was Net Entertainment (NetEnt). Towards the end of October 2013, NetEnt launched Magic Portals onto its mobile casino product, which is called NetEnt Touch™.
“Magic Portals can now be enjoyed by players on mobile while they make their own exciting journeys. We are constantly adding to our Touch TM portfolio to maintain our promise of developing better games,” said NetEnt’s Chief Product Officer, Simon Hammon.
Sheriff Gaming launched a new mobile slot machine on November 20th 2013. This new mobile slot, Midnight Rush SMART, has a great click me bonus feature and a special multiplier feature.
“We’re very excited about releasing our spooky thriller Midnight Rush on our SMART mobile platform. Midnight Rush is a fantastic addition to our growing portfolio of games, bringing with it a great theme, configuration and a collection of bonus features that is truly unique,” said Sheriff Gaming’s Chief of Content, Bas Meijers.

If you want to take part in an online slot tournament, we recommend visiting a Realtime Gaming powered casino or a Microgaming powered casino, but before you can sign up for one of these events you would need to register an account with either an RTG or Microgaming casino and then make your first deposit. Unfortunately if you are based in the US, you won’t be able to sign up to any Microgaming casinos.
As soon as you have registered a new account you can then make your first deposit using a variety of different methods such as Direct Bank Transfers, e-Wallets, Credit Cards, Debit Cards, Checks/Cheques or Prepaid Cards. A minimum deposit of $/€/$5-20 is generally required.
You can only ever sign up for an online slot tournament via the casino download client at any RTG or Microgaming powered casino. You CANNOT take part in an online slot tournament over the instant flash casino platform at these casinos, so we suggest installing the casino software onto your computer as soon as you open an account.
Finding the tournaments is the easy part. In the Microgaming casinos, just look for the Multi-Player & Tournaments button and in the RTG casinos, just look for the Tournaments button. After clicking on this button, you will be redirected to the main tournament lobby where you can find out details about the ‘upcoming’, ‘in-play’ and ‘completed’ events.
The kind of details that you can find in the tournament lobbies include details about the entrance fee/buy-in fee, plus you can also find out exactly which game you get to play on throughout the tournament.
Most of the RTG slot tourneys involve games such as Texan Tycoon, Enchanted Garden, Loose Caboose and Crystal Waters. The Microgaming slots that you get to play on include Gold Factory, Break Away, Immortal Romance, Karate Pig and Loaded.
Some of the actual tournament names from Microgaming include The Accumulator, The Survivor, Midweek Moolah, The Weekend Whopper, the Monthly Monster, Extender Tourneys, Reloader Tourneys and the One Shot Tourney. Both Microgaming AND Realtime Gaming casinos host the occasional Freeroll Slot Tournaments as well.
The buy-ins can range from the more affordable $1.00 or $2.00 up to in some cases as much as $100.00. The duration of each tourney and the amount of players that actually take part in an event can vary a great deal, which means that the prize pool can also vary a great deal. Most tourneys from Microgaming and Realtime Gaming allow you to rebuy or to purchase ‘continues’ or ‘add-ons’, so if you lose all of your chips early on, you still have a fighting chance with these optional re-buys/continues.
If you are looking to take part in an online slot tournament today, why not head over to some of the following casinos: Casino Titan, Club World Casino, Palace of Chance Casino, Silver Oak Casino and Lucky Red Casino (all powered by RTG) or Crazy Vegas Casino, Golden Palace Casino, Platinum Play Casino, Royal Vegas Casino, Spin Palace Casino, Jackpot City Casino and Gaming Club Casino (all powered by Microgaming).
It is hard to say which online casino software provider has developed the best online slot tournament platform, but the Microgaming network generally has more players, so you can generally find a wider range of tourneys and more frequent events which tend to fill up much quicker than RTG tourneys.

As keen online slot enthusiasts ourselves, we often wonder what other players enjoy playing on so we decided to do a little research. Bearing in mind we only took into consideration online slot machines that have been developed by Microgaming or Playtech.
Perhaps at a later date we will write another article and consider popular slots from other software providers such as Net Entertainment, Realtime Gaming, Sheriff Gaming, WMS Gaming, IGT Interactive, Rival and BetSoft Gaming, but for now we will just stick to popular Microgaming and Playtech slots.
We found that ten of the most popular Playtech slots being played right now at casinos such as Omni Casino included the following titles. At number ten (so the tenth most popular slot) is a slot called Baywatch. Most players should be familiar with this slot and it doesn’t take a genius to figure out why this might be so popular (Pamela Anderson).
The ninth most played game is a relatively brand new online slot called Funky Fruits Farm. At number eight is a branded Marvel slot called Iron Man 2. At number seven is an African wildlife themed slot called Wild Gambler. At number six is another branded slot called Hulk and at number five is Captain America.
At number four is a branded slot called Little Britain, which is based on the TV show of the same name and at number three is Iron Man 3. The second most popular Playtech slot being played right now is Thor – The Mighty Avenger, but at number one, the game being played the most right now is another branded Marvel slot called The Avengers. Each of these branded Marvel slots boasts four Progressive Jackpots and multiple bonus rounds, which is probably why they are so popular.
The top ten most popular Microgaming slot machines being played right now at various casinos such as Royal Vegas Casino and Platinum Play Casino include (in no particular order) titles such a Lucky Witch. This is a great Halloween themed slot and this is probably why so many players are enjoying it right now as Halloween rapidly approaches.
Other popular slots from Microgaming in October 2013 include Riviera Riches, The Twisted Circus, Avalon, Agent Jane Blonde, Fortune Lounge and Break Away. You may or may not already be familiar with these titles, but you can find them all in the real cash mode and in the free play mode via Microgaming’s download client.
Some of the other top titles being played right now and which many of you may already be familiar with include Immortal Romance (another great Halloween/vampire themed slot), Thunderstruck 2 and The Dark Knight™/The Dark Knight Rises™.
