Fu Er Dai review

Fu Er Dai review
Join the silver spoon brigade in Fu Er Dai, a Chinese slot themed around young wealth. The high volatility and RTP of 96.00% appeal and so does the simple but solid gameplay.

Dead or Alive 2 review
The West is given a melancholy paint job in this dark but popular Pekinpah-esque take on the Western with great graphics, high volatility and an RTP of 96.80%.

Trolls Bridge 2 review
The trick in this beautifully rendered game from Yggdrasil Gaming is to besiege the Trolls and get their treasure. While the volatility could be higher, we like almost everything else about this one.
The One Armed Bandit review

The One Armed Bandit review
One of the best Wester themed slots we’ve reviewed, with great graphics, nice gameplay, high volatility and a reasonable RTP (96.30%).
Jungle Wild review
2020-06-05T22:20Z
Jungle Wild review
Welcome to the Amazon, or what’s left of it. Jungle Wild is a solid slot with some dodgy graphics and very little to make it stand out. The volatility is high though and the RTP around average (95.96%).
Demi Gods III review
2020-06-04T23:23Z
Demi Gods III review
Demi Gods III takes the franchise to the Viking north with a new set of gods and a new set of bonuses. It combines an RTP of 96.20% with medium volatility.
Genie Jackpots Megaways review

Genie Jackpots Megaways review
While we would use one of our three wishes to boost Genie Jackpot Megaways’s volatility, otherwise this is a pretty solid slot.
Power Stars review
2020-05-31T00:00Z
Power Stars review
Power Stars takes a nice gimmick with its Wild symbol but fails to follow through with its low RTP (95.54%) and medium volatility.
Golden Ark review

Golden Ark review
Low RTP undermines an otherwise good slot with high volatility and somewhat dated graphics.
Golden Offer review
2020-05-27T21:17Z
Golden Offer review
Golden Offer is a neat little slot with great features, high volatility, and a decent RTP (96.03%).
Great Blue review

Great Blue review
High volatility and a reasonable RTP are the main selling points for this charming if basic undersea themed slot.
Versailles Gold review
2020-05-24T01:25Z
Versailles Gold review
Versaille Gold does well mathematically (RTP of 96.09% and medium-high volatility) but the visuals will see it sent to the guillotine.
Diamond Strike review
2020-05-21T23:59Z
Diamond Strike review
Diamond Strike is a somewhat unimaginative slot with good RTP but only a medium level of volatility.
Danger High Voltage review
2020-05-20T00:00Z
Danger High Voltage review
Whether it's themed around electricity or disco is unclear. What is clear is that Danger High Voltage has medium/high volatility and a below average RTP (95.67%).
Treasures of Egypt review
2020-05-14T23:00Z
Treasures of Egypt review
Treasures of Egypt is one of the treasures that can be safely left interred. The middling volatility and low RTP (94%) means this slot is better left buried in the desert.
Golden Dragon (GameArt) review
2020-05-14T01:12Z
Golden Dragon (GameArt) review
Golden Dragons fly and writhe across the reels in this beautiful slot with solid but simple features, an RTP of 96.00% and low volatility.
Zeus God of Thunder review
2020-05-10T23:47Z
Zeus God of Thunder review
Zeus God of Thunder is a sharp-looking game with an RTP of 96.05% and medium/high volatility.
Viva Las Vegas review
2020-05-09T22:25Z
Viva Las Vegas review
Viva Las Vegas takes the glitz and glamour of a Vegas stage show and renders it dull. Plus the RTP is only 95.20%, no wonder the house always wins.
White Rabbit Megaways review
2020-05-08T23:25Z
White Rabbit Megaways review
Follow the White Rabbit down into a wonderland of high volatility and an RTP of 97.72%.
Fluffy Favourites review

Fluffy Favourites review
Lazily designed and expensive to play, we would prefer if Fluffy Favourites stayed in the claw machine.
