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

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

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
2020-05-06T23:56Z
Fluffy Favourites review
Lazily designed and expensive to play, we would prefer if Fluffy Favourites stayed in the claw machine.
Bier Haus review
2020-05-03T23:29Z

German beer, music and dress are the focus of this solid slot with medium/high volatility and a 96% RTP.

Jewel Journey review
2020-05-02T01:21Z
Jewel Journey review
Jewel Journey promises adventure but gives you an uphill struggle against bad design, low RTP, and medium volatility instead.
Ultra Hot Deluxe review
2020-04-29T23:44Z

Ultra Hot Deluxe is an oversimplified slot with an RTP of 95.17% and low volatility.
Viking Clash review
2020-04-23T22:58Z

Set sail on a journey of pillage with two Viking crews in this double reel slot with a lot of heart and good volatility (medium-high) and RTP levels (96.67%).
Invaders from the Planet Moolah review
2020-04-22T22:08Z
Invaders from the Planet Moolah review
Aliens are here and they look oddly familiar in this bovine themed slot machine with high volatility and an RTP of 96.00%.
Balloonies review
2020-04-20T00:00Z
Balloonies review
Balloonies is the oddest of all things: a gambling game with a front end that looks designed for children. Enough said.

GEMiX review
Low volatility is the main drawback to this otherwise exciting and charming slot. The RTP is 96.75%.
