2022 has started with a bang particularly for online slots players. The New Year has seen a huge number of releases from the biggest games developers in the iGaming industry. 

Here are three notable casino game releases for January 2022:

Aloha Spirit XtraLock

By Swintt

Launched in 2019, Swintt is the new kid on the block in the iGaming industry but has proven that it has what it takes to compete with the big guns. The company’s latest release invites players to join a Hawaiian parade which as far as we’re concerned is just what is needed to banish those January, post-holiday season blues. 

The game is aptly named Aloha Spirit XtraLock and is a 5×3, 50 payline online slot that boasts an RTP of 96.09% and a maximum win multiplier of x200,500! 

The game’s symbols include flip flops, coconut drinks, flowers, and a Hawaiian woman really get you in the holiday mood. These 

The game also features an Aloha Spirit XtraLock jackpot mechanic that offers a free spins round and wild symbols. This is triggered by Tiki mask symbols that lock into place when revealed. As more symbols appear they too lock into place as you try to create a larger Tiki shaped symbol. The game’s top mega jackpot can only be won if you cover 12 or more reel positions with your Tiki shapes. 

This game was rated #1 by the reviewers at NewNoDepositCasino.co.uk – a site which specializes in casino game reviews.

Murphy’s Pots

By Lightning Box

Lightning Box is an Australian slots developer that has taken the trip all the way to Ireland for its latest slot release. And Murphy’s Pots, distributed via Scientific Games, is everything you’d expect from an Irish-themed slot. 

Okay so the name isn’t quite as original as you’d may have hoped for, but Murphy’s Pots is a 5×3, 25-payline slot that offers players an RTP of 95.08% and a max win of x249,587. 

Interestingly, this slot has a Lightning bonus and Rainbow feature. 

The fun aspect of this game is what attracted us to it. For example, if you land five rainbow clouds in a spin, the Rainbow feature is activated. You pick one of seven clouds that reveal a fun prize up to a multiplier of x30. 

This prize then goes into a pot (one of Murphy’s we assume) and seven spins of a single reel begin. The idea is to move your leprechaun to the end of the rainbow. Get all the way there and you get the cash in the pot. 

This adds that extra bit of excitement to the game that you won’t always find in other slots making it great fun to play.

Triple Juicy Drops

By Betsoft Gaming

This is the second slots title released by BetSoft Gaming this year and we’re only a month into 2022. But as far as we can tell, this is the better of the two releases. 

As you can guess, Triple Juicy Drops is a fruit themed slot that harks back to the days of the old fruit machines. This game offers an RTP of 95.73% and is a 5×5 cascading slot with a max multiplier of x20,534 alongside a prize reel. 

The reason we love this one so much is because of the simplicity of the gameplay and the fact that BetSoft has taken an old classic theme and built on it. 

Three on-screen counters tell you what symbols you need to collect to trigger the wheels for bigger wins. This makes it a very straightforward game with no major complexities. These counters reset every 20 spins so you won’t find yourself stuck in a rut. 

Like we said, we like this game for its simplicity as some slots these days can be hard to follow in terms of what you need to collect to win. 

So if slots are your thing, then give these titles a spin. And if you win big just remember who told you about them.
