NetEnt’s slots are immersive, original, authentic, and satisfy the highest standards in terms of graphics, sounds and other game features. Most of NetEnt’s slots have enticing plot stories and are based on interesting stories, characters, often featuring popular music, film or literary heroes. NetEnt is also quite prolific in terms of slot production, the slot releases a significant number of games every year. These are NetEnt’s top slot games released since 2016.
Red Riding Hood Slot
Red Riding Hood slot is the first game of the FairyTale Legends series, based, obviously, on the popular story of the old European tale of the Little Red Riding Hood which inspired the Grimm Brothers to write one of the most popular children’s stories.
The game was released in October in 2016 and everyone at NetEnt was pretty excited about it. NetEnt’s CEO Hammon stated upon the release that the game features user-friendly interface and high-quality gameplay. Hammon also predicted that the whole series will be very successful with players.
The game features 5 reels, 3 rows, but there are no clear borders between reels and symbols are displayed on a slightly blurry fairytale-like background, with an animated moving image of the Red Riding Hood on the left of the reels. The game has 20 pay-lines, it features low-paying standard card symbols, as well as theme-specific symbols. Red Riding Hood herself is the wild symbol which appears on the second, third and fourth reel during the main game. The game has an abundance of bonus features, a total of seven.
The players can’t select which pay-lines they want to activate, all pay-lines are always active, but they can choose the coin themselves. You can play with as little as 1p per coin, and up to as much as £10, which means that the total wager can vary from 20p up to £200.
When it comes to bonus features, there are three features which can be triggered randomly - Fairy Surprise, Fairy Wild and Fairy Magic. Whenever Fairy Magic is activated a group of 5 to 9 random matching symbols show up on the reels, often resulting in pretty hefty awards. Fairy Surprise is activated after a losing spin, and after a themed symbol is randomly chosen, other symbols start turning into it, which allows multiple winning combos to be formed.
When at least two Red Riding Hood wilds appear on the reels in the main game, then they will stick on the reels and allow extra winning combinations to be formed during the Sticky Wild Respin bonus.
The main bonus game is triggered whenever there are at least 3 scatter symbols on the reels. Whenever this happens the player is presented with three chests and upon picking one they find out whether they’re going to get the Free Spins bonus, the Coin Win, or Beware the Wolf feature. During Beware the Wolf players can collect a lot of prizes, including a jackpot, multiplier that goes up to x20 and other awards. Coin Win includes a win multiplier up to x15, whereas during the Free Spins bonus you can win up to 10 free spins.
Football: Champions Cup Slot
Football is the most popular sport in Europe, and NetEnt released a slot game, honouring the Euro 2016 held in France that was won by Portugal. The game features 5 reels and 20 pay-lines. It is played with a total of 20 coins, one per pay-line, and the coin value may vary from 1p up to £5. The game was released just before the competition started.
The game has 2 bonus features which are extremely original and in accordance with the theme. Just before the game starts you get to pick the flag of one of the participants, and even though this has no impact on the gameplay, it is still a nice touch. The reels are also transparent and the game features standard card symbols, as well as football related icons. The list of symbols includes shirts, boots, keeper gloves, trophy, a referee whistle, as well as special wild and bonus symbols.
The overlay wild symbols which may appear randomly can significantly boost potential winnings. Between 2 and 5 overlay wilds need to appear. The Penalty Shootout bonus has been regarded by players as the most enticing feature of this game. This feature is activated when at least 3 bonus symbols appear on the reels.
The bonus game is structured like a penalty shootout and the player gets to choose where to shoot the ball in order to score and where the keeper should throw himself when the opponent shoots. Whenever you manage to save the opponent’s shot, you will be awarded a multiplier and the multiplier level depends on the number of bonus symbols that triggered the feature. With 5 symbols you can get a multiplier of up to x16.
The Free Spins bonus is activated when at least 3 scatter symbols land in any position on the second, third and fourth reel. This bonus game is structured like the knockout stage in the actual European Championship. There are four free spins rounds, each consisted of 6 individual spins. The wilds and the scoring wilds appear on the reels and determine the number of goals that you and your opponent have scored. If you finish 3rd, you will get a cash prize worth x20 your stake, a silver medal wins you x100 prize, whereas if you win the tournament you’ll get a staggering prize worth x500 your stake.
Guns N’ Roses Slot
This game is based on a different kind of heroes. On the ones who formed the musical taste of a whole generation. Yes, we’re talking of course of the best rock band in history – Guns N’ Roses. OK, the phrase ‘best in history’ might be considered an overstatement by some, but many feel that GNR were and still are the best ones ever.
The game is part of one of NetEnt’s most prominent series – NetEnt Rocks, which includes two other games Motörhead and Jimi Hendrix, based on two other iconic rock n’ roll names. Guns N’ Roses was the first game of the series that was released, in January in 2016 and the success was instant.
Guns N’ Roses has 5 reels and 20 pay-lines, and like many other NetEnt games can be played with as little as 20p and as much as £100. The game includes original songs by Guns N’ Roses as part of the soundtrack and the gameplay is enriched by several exciting bonus features.
The Guns N’ Roses symbol acts as a wild symbol and can turn into expanding wilds which may substitute every symbol (except for other wild symbols during bonus games). There are three bonus features that are activated randomly, during the main game, the Legend Spins, the Appetite for Destruction and the Solo Multiplier.
The Legend Spins is a feature where you receive 3 extra spins. During the first, stacked wilds appear on the third reel, during the second it is reels 1 and 5 where the stacked wilds appear and during the third the remaining two reels get stacked wilds. The Appetite for Destruction bonus gives you an overlay wild and if you have wilds on the other reels, you may win some serious prizes. Then it is the Solo Multiplier where you get a multiplier bonus up to x10.
The remaining bonus features are the Encore bonus, the Coin Win and the Crowd-Pleaser bonus. The last one has three levels, where you get to pick symbols and win prizes based on your choice.
Blood Suckers 2
Blood Suckers 2 is a sequel to the extremely popular NetEnt slot Bloodsuckers. It was released during the first months of 2017 and it became an instant hit with players, much like its predecessor. The game has 5 reels and 25 pay-lines and it can be played across a range of devices, including desktops, as well as smartphones and tablets. The game can be played with as little as 25p and the maximum wager is £250.
The main character in this game is the female vampire Amilia, and the storyline follows her attempt to find the hidden treasure that was left to her by her ancestors. In terms of graphics and especially animations, Blood Suckers 2 is definitely an improvement on the original game.
The vampire hunter is the most valuable common symbol, whereas the wild is the most valuable symbol in the game as a whole. If you get five wild symbols in a pay-line you can win a prize worth x400 your stake.
The game features 4 bonus features, two of which are triggered randomly in the main game. When the Bonus Shot is activated you will see one overlay bonus symbol appearing on reels 1, 2 or 3. The Scatter Shot random feature gives you one extra scatter symbol which may cause the triggering of the Blood Rose bonus.
The Blood Rose bonus is a free spins feature that is activated by at least 3 scatter symbols (regardless where on the reels they appear). You will receive 10 free spins and the winnings during this bonus game are subject to x3 multiplier. If 3 scatters appear during the free spins, you get additional 10 free spins.
The Hidden Treasure is a bonus feature that is activated once you see at least 3 bonus symbols on the reels. With 4 symbols your winnings during the feature are double, with 5 – tripled. During this feature you choose from treasure chests and coffins in an attempt to win as much as possible. The bonus game has 5 levels.
Secrets of Christmas Slot
Last but not least we have a Christmas themed slot game, conveniently named Secrets of Christmas. It was released in the period before Christmas in 2016. The game has 5 reels and 25 pay-lines, it can be played with as little as 25p and up to as much as £125. Secrets of Christmas is available on mobile and the maximum win is x1,425 the stake.
The symbols include playing cards (stylised according to the theme), as well as symbols that are traditionally associated with Christmas – gingerbread cookies, toys, milk and biscuits, bells, and Santa. Getting five bells across a pay-line wins a massive prize worth 1,250 coins. Santa is the wild symbol which can substitute every symbol, but the scatter. The soundtrack is also very Christmas-y.
The sack of toys serves a scatter symbol and whenever at least three sacks appear on the reels the Free Spins bonus is activated. 10 free spins are awarded and before the first spin, the player will have a chance to select as many gifts as there have been scatters on the reels (3 gifts for 3 scatter symbols). The gifts include multipliers, extra free spins, or additional wild symbols during the free spins. This game may include fewer bonus features compared to the other games listed above, but that doesn’t make it less appealing or playable.
