New Casino Slots machines

Slot machines are the biggest and most popular games offered at casinos throughout the world. They are also the most profitable portion of a casino’s bottom line as players seem to play them continuously 24 hours per day in an attempt to win that huge and elusive jackpot.

In order to make slot machines such a huge hit, gaming companies are always striving to offer the latest and greatest thing to punters in an effort to draw them in. With technological advances this is possible now more than ever, allowing players to immerse themselves in a television or film property instantly, potentially winning huge cash prizes in the process.

New land slot machines generally launch in quarterly segments, and many of the games themselves are premiered at trade shows such as the Global Gaming Expo and the ICE Show in London. At the most recent show dozens of spectacular games were teased, complete with wonderfully constructed game cabinets, large flat screen displays, and crisp music that will boom throughout the casino.

One of the favorite things on my annual calendar is to travel to the G2E convention in Las Vegas where all the leading slot manufacturers give sneak previews of their biggest new titles that will be released over the coming year. Companies such as Bally Technologies, WMS, IGT, Konami and Aristocrat all offer slot machines to land establishments across the world and for G2E attendees you can get the chance to play all their brand new slot machines before they hit the casino floors in Las Vegas.

This years show was a blast and there were some big titles announced. New releases for 2015 include exciting new slots such as The Flintstones and Elton John slots by WMS, which are both set for release in the fall. IGT has fired back with the interactive and immersive Ellen DeGeneres Show slots, with 2 separate games due to be launched. Other big games coming to a casino near you soon are the groovy Austin Powers, and bird hunting hillbilly game Duck Dynasty.

2014/2015 Vegas Highlights

Having spoken with alot of slot fanatics at the G2E convention it seems these are the games players had enjoyed the most. I'm normally quite skeptical when I see a new "themed" game released in casinos. I've found that many of these games such as Family Guy and the DC comic games are incredibly tight and will empty the wallet quickly. However, these soon to be released slots received mostly positive feedback and should make for entertaining play when they are finally made available to the public.

  • Friends: The only surprise about this new Vegas slot is that it's taken so long to license. Set to be released more than 10 years after the final episode of the show was aired, it will be interesting to see if Joey, Phoebe, Ross et al still have the same pull that drew record TV numbers during the show's ten years as a hit sitcom. As a huge Friends fan (I still watch the repeats), this is one game I'm going to be playing alot.
  • Mad Men: I think it's appropriate to follow up a classic sitcom with another hugely popular TV show slot that was announced at G2E - Mad Men by WMS. This new game based on the highly rated AMC show is sure to attract players who watch the show.
  • The Flintstones: Following on from the successful release of the Jetson's, WMS had their new Flintstones slot machine on show at G2E and it was a big hit. I had to queue for half an hour to get a go at this and it looked great from my short time playing. This was one of the cartoons I grew up on, so for me it's a fun filled trip back in time that will please slot fans both young and old. Can't wait for this. Yabba dabba doo.
  • Elton John: Fun, colorful and regular bonus rounds, this game was a blast and had tons of great music to boot. If you are an Elton John fan you are gonna love this slot.
  • WMS: I felt the strongest booth at G2E was that of WMS who had a number of great games on display. As well as Mad Men, Elton John and the Flintstones, they also had a new Austin Powers game that was really fun to play, a Gremlins slot based on the movie franchise, the Jetsons and a new Elvis game. They also had new versions of their classic titles including Monopoly, the Wizard of Oz and Willy Wonka, as well as some fresh new games including Centaur, Reel Em In Supercast and Pharaoh's Pyramid.
  • Aristocrat: As well as the 3 huge titles above, you can expect more TV goodness in the shape of the Big Bang Theory and Sons of Anarchy by Aristocrat. They also announced the Britney Spears slot which features plush leather seats and drew huge crowds at the show and a new installment in the Buffalo series, one of my favourite Vegas slot games.
  • IGT: While Ellen was their big announcement, IGT had a number of good looking games at the show. They showcased Wheel of Fortune: Jackpot Paradise, the latest in the insanely popular Wheel of Fortune series that incorporates some new cutting edge technology into the game. Perhaps the biggest announcement at the show was the release of Race Ace and Centipede, two new slots that feature "skill based" bonus rounds. Games with skill based elements have been unpopular in the past, so it will be interesting to see how these fare.

Expect More Licensed Games in 2015

Moving forward the casino industry is going to be seeing a lot of very exciting slot machines coming to a spot near you, offering fresh experiences that you will get to have for the first time due to the interactive touch screens, linked jackpots, beautiful video and dynamic sounds, as well as fresh ideas that you will love such as different paytables. By licensing brands that are already known to players, slot makers are now tapping into markets where they are guaranteed an existing fan base, as well as play from alot more casual gamers who want to play a game they know. The continued success of Michael Jackson King of Pop, the Dark Knight and Avatar shows that this strategy is a proven winner.

  • avatar What are the odd of winning on slot machines at a brand new casino
    • Casinos can set the odds of winning on slot machines to whatever they want. If the odds are good, they'll usually advertise it with signs saying the percentage payout. If they don't mention it, they're probably less than 90%. Thanks for asking
