Vampire Senpai from Quickspin
Quickspin casino developers demonstrate their resourcefulness and creativity in mixing vampire and Oriental themes in one casino game. Let us see how that turned out.
Chinese culture places great emphasis on the afterlife and that is why we see this bold combination of topics. Vampire Senpai is partly based on Chinese folklore with its demons taking lives. However, the slot is designed in a cartoonish style, so you have nothing to fear.
To get paid, you have to catch 3+ symbols on a pay line. They are represented by Asia-styled cards and 3 mediums, which are the most lucrative ones as we can see in a paytable. We also have three Wilds that cost 20 or even 40 times the stake. A scatter is a golden bell that triggers Free Spins. The slot machine comes with 5 reels, 5 rows, and 40 ways to win. It is playable on any device you have around, and bets range from 10 p/c up to £/€100 per spin. Vampire Senpai has a typical Quickspin interface, so you will not be confused. Volatility is set as Medium+ and RTP rating is about average – 96.19%.
The maximum payout you can count upon is 8,894x the total stake
The features of the game are based on Wilds and their transformations. Once a Vampire Wild appears, it makes human icons turn into Turned Wilds, and these new Turned Wilds transform other humans into more Wilds. Thus, we create a long chain reaction that can last until there are new human icons to turn them.
Having 3, 4, or 5 bells, you get 7, 9, or 12 Free Rounds called the Reanimated Free Spins. During the bonus game, Vampire Wilds become Sticky ones to turn human icons into Wilds until the end of the freefalls. Talisman Wilds play a special role as they appear to become sticky and replace all other adjacent symbols. One more good power of them is to add 1+ Free Spin every time they land on the reels.
Well, we love this unusual mix of topics and interesting Wild tricks. This casino game can be added to our Top list of Asian Slots as it is made in Asian style but has its own creative functions on offer. Quickspin tries out something new and we love it.

Immortal Glory from Just For The Win (Microgaming)
Just For The Win is one of the most famous Microgaming’s partner studios that creates exclusive games for their fans. This time, it goes right to the Ancient Greek civilization that left behind the rich cultural heritage. We are talking about the Olympic Games – the most famous sporting event in the world that came from the antiquity. Gamblers are associated with athletes fighting for a jackpot.
When start spinning the reels, you find yourself at the Olympic battlefield. The paying value division is quite interesting here: we have low-paying 1×1 icons and high-paying 1×4 symbols. Those 1×1 are a pair of sandals, a discus, a ball, and a triumphal wreath while the premiums are represented by 3 athletes 1×4 sized. A short putter is the most desirable one as you can get 200x for a full screen of them. Wilds here are 1×4 sized Olympic torches that cost as much as short putters.
The game grid consists of 5 reels and 4 rows. To catch a win you have 40 pay lines. To start fighting you have to set a bet at a rate from 10 p/c to £/€25 per a single turn, which is not that much, you see. The developer offers a standard RTP of 96.19% and very high volatility. The max winning potential is mind-blowing 10,000x. We sure, this multiplier is worth the effort.
As you take part in the Olympics, you are eager to win a jackpot. You have this opportunity; just catch bonus icons on reels 1, 3, and 5. Then, you are to choose between 3 Statues. Your choice leads to Bronze, Silver, or Gold prizes that mean 20x, 100x, and 10,000x the total bet!
There are also Free Spins and Glory Spins.
|Bets||10 p/c to £/€25|
|Features||Bronze, Silver, or Gold Jackpot, Free Spins, Glory Spins|

Gems Gone Wild Power Reels from Red Tiger Gaming
The Gems Gone Wild slot machine featured with Power Reels mechanic is a new title form R7 casino software provider, a partner of Red Tiger Gaming. I do not think there is any point to dwell on a slot theme; gems and space-bound together are used in many online casino games, and the most famous is Starburst from NetEnt, for sure. Well, the layout has 8 reels and 6 rows across 30 winning ways. The betting range does not impress us, it varies from 10 p/c up to £/€20 only. High-rollers will be slightly disappointed. The theoretical return to a player is understated to 95.68%.
This title comes with a medium variance and a 3,000x winning potential
Talking about winning combinations, they are formed from matching icons anywhere on a pay line. More than that, you can catch several combos on a line at once, increasing your chances to win. The most lucrative combo consists of 8 golden spheres that cost 75x the stake. Well, the paytable looks distinctly underwhelming.
Ok, let us try to make sense of slot features. This game is about gems and Wilds as it is clear from the title – Gems Gone Wild Power Reels. We have the Super Wilds and Locked Wilds. What are they and how do they act?
The Super Wilds land randomly in a 2×2 or 3×3 size making Wild blocks. The Locked Wilds become sticky and remain in their positions if more Wilds appear on the reels. Thus, more and more Wild icons form new combos and make old ones stay locked on the grid.
All right, even the Power Reels cannot save this casino game from failure. The slot does not have any special features or bonus games on offer. Unfortunately, this is not one of the decent games on the market.

Banana Drop from Crazy Tooth Studio (Microgaming)
This Microgaming’s partner is famous for unusual and exclusive games with exciting design, graphics, and features. This time, Crazy Tooth Studio developers take their chance on the example of Banana Drop.
This colorful and bright casino game offers a 6×4 game area and 4,096 ways to form a winning combination. These reels and rows are located in banana trees. You can play with a tiny 15 p/c bet per spin or increase it up to £/€30 to get bigger wins. Try out Banana Drop as it comes with a decent RTP of 96.7% and medium variance. So, you will not leave empty-handed. The slot is adapted for smartphones so you could play it wherever you want to.
Well, the most interesting part starts when we pay attention to the paytable and system of payments itself. The game comes with an Any Adjacent Pays system. All you need is to catch 3+ similar icons on consecutive reels; it does not have to be the first reel, just any reel to start forming a combo.
And that brings us to the next point – slot symbols. All the icons are split into three groups. Watermelons, coconuts, and pineapples are the low-value ones. Mid-paying are cards, from Jack through Ace. And the most lucrative ones are giraffes, zebras, hippos, and lions designed in trippy style. There are also Substituting Wilds and Scatters.
Talking about features, the BIG BuildUp game mechanic is the highlight of the game. It works together with a random Falling Banana feature. While spinning the reels, you see numbered bananas dangling from the palms. Once the Falling Banana function triggers, a monkey takes over the bananas and awards you an extra prize. In its turn, the BIG BuildUp mechanic helps to generate more and more bananas for each rotation.
Banana Drop Bonus Spins will come into action if 3+ scatter land on the game grid. Here you deal with the Falling Banana feature and Full Stacks Monkeys.
Banana Drop is one more entertaining title from Crazy Tooth Studio. We like its colorful design and nice soundtrack. These aspects are well-made. As for the payments, you will have to try hard to get a decent payout, as the most lucrative icons pay 1x the stake for 6 of a kind combo. The max potential of the game is 6,031 times, which may be a good one for the slot machine with such low payments.
|Bets||15 p/c up to £/€30|
|Features||Any Adjacent Pays, BIG BuildUp, Falling Banana, Banana Drop Bonus Spins, Full Stacks|
