In the twilight of 2015 we can now look back and see what a fantastic year it has been from Online Gaming. All of the major software providers have released some amazing pokies for 2015. Microgaming, NetEnt, Rabcat and Betsoft made 2015 special with great new graphics and special features taking online pokies to new heights.
It’s really hard to pick the top games of 2015 but here are a few of the titles that we enjoyed playing again and again this year. So, in no particular order here are our favorites;
1) Basketball Star
Basketball Star bounced onto the online pokies scene in November this year. Set to an epic Hip-Hop soundtrack this is a pokie to be played. There are 243 ways to win and this 5×3 reel slot is not short of great winning reels. This online pokie has the ever popular Rolling Reels mechanism. Additionally, three or more scatters trigger up to 25 Free spins and a multiplier upto 10x. Basketball star is online download, in browser and mobile microgaming partner casinos.
2) Rugby Star
Similar to Basketball star but again an amazing game this year was rugby star. Rugby Star was launched before the Rugby World Cup and offers online pokies players a download, flash and mobile sports themed pokie for 2015. This 5 x 3 reel, 243 ways slot features stacked wilds, scatters,and a wild pass giving plenty of game action for online pokies players in 2015.
Additionally, the wild pass feature triggers randomly. Again there are upto 25 free spins and a multiplier trail of up to 10x. This game has been super popular with Rugby fans for obvious reasons.
3) Koi Princess
Again in late 2015, Koi Princess was released and is a NetEnt powered online pokie. This is one of the most feature-packed online pokies made available by netent in it’s almost 20 year history. It’s also NetEnts first online pokie to have a Japanese Anime theme. Koi Princess won won ‘the Game of the Year’ award at the EGR Operator Awards 2015. Koi Princess has one of the most beautiful animations and themes that we have seen all year. The betting range is 0.01 to 1 credit and up to 10 coins per line. The game also has a bonus bet option! All in All this one is a must play from 2015.
In conclusion, we feel microgaming was the big winner in terms of game releases this year. Some of the sports themed games went a long way for online pokies players. We certainly enjoyed them. Some other big hits this year include Alkemor’s tower, Bar-Bar-Black-Sheep, Pyramid: Quest for Immortality, Titans of the Sun Theia and Titans of the Sun Hyperion. Additionally, 2016 looks exciting already in terms of game launches. Microgaming have published two more video slot teasers on its official YouTube channel. The games are called Dragon Dance and Bikini Party.
