New slots are released every month. The Microgaming software company releases two or three new slots at the end of each month, while other software companies launch their new slots at varying times throughout the year.
I like playing new slots because they are fresh and interesting. I also enjoy new slots because the graphics and sounds keep getting better and better with time.
Some people believe that new slots are "loose" when they are first released. That is, you win more often while playing a new slot than you would while playing an older slot. I don't know if this is true or not, but I think it's an interesting idea!

Hoffmania Video Slot - March 2014
Where to play Hoffmania Video Slot
Novomatic's new Hoffmania slot machine is an amusing game with 243 winning combinations. Reel graphics include David Hasselhoff, two smiling lifeguards, wild "Hoffmania" symbols, scattered golden statues of David, and David's autograph, along with the characters A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9. Hoffmania is powered by Novomatic software, and you can play the online version at Star Games.
The Hoffmania slot has 5 reels and 243 ways to win. Winning combinations are created from left to right starting with the leftmost reel. If you land 3 of the same symbol consecutively on reels 1, 2, and 3, you win a prize. Land 4 or 5 of the same symbol consecutively and you win even more!
David Hasselhoff's face is one of the most valuable symbols. If 5 of these appear on your screen (one on each reel), you can win up to 400,000.00!
The Hoffmania icon is wild and substitutes for all other symbols except the scattered golden statues. If 3 or more scattered golden statutes appear on your screen, you win 5 free spins! During the free spins, each statue that appears will award 1 or 2 additional free spins, or it will increase your multiplier value by 1, up to a maximum of 5X. The free spins can also be retriggered if 3 or more statues appear during the free spins.
The Hoffmania slot machine also has a gamble feature. You can activate this feature after any win. To play, just click the Gamble button. Then choose either red or black. If the color of the next card in the deck matches the color you chose, your prize is doubled! You can play the gamble feature multiple times and continue doubling your winnings. But don't get too greedy -- if you choose the wrong color, you lose the prize!
If you live in the UK or Europe, be sure to play The Hoff's new slot machine this month at Star Games!

Black Knight II Video Slot - March 2014
Where to play Black Knight II Video Slot
Black Knight II is the sequel to WMS Gaming's popular Black Knight slot machine. The "II" version has 40 paylines instead of 30, and if you compare the two slots side by side, you will notice immediately that the graphics of Black Knight II are far superior to the original game. Black Knight II's images are crisp and sharp, and they almost appear to pop out of the screen as you play. You can play Black Knight II at bet365 Games.
The Black Knight II slot machine has an older, gray-haired king with a serious expression. (The original game has a serene, somewhat happy-looking king.) You will also see a young woman (his new, younger queen, or perhaps a princess), a blue jester, a golden crown, shiny shields, and a gallant black knight riding a horse. The symbols can appear stacked on the reels, which helps to create multiple winning combinations with each spin.
The black knight symbol is wild, and he appears only on reels 2, 3, and 4. The black knight substitutes for all other symbols except the scattered shields.
When 3 or more shields appear next to each other on your screen, starting with the leftmost reel, you win 7 free spins! During the free spins, the available winning combinations are mostly the same as in the base game. The main difference is that the shields do not appear during the free spins.
Wolf Rising Video Slot - March 2014
Where to play Wolf Rising Video Slot
The Wolf Rising slot machine is the latest "wolf" themed slot from IGT. If you loved the original Wolf Run or its sequel, Wild Wolf, you will definitely enjoy Wolf Rising. You can play the new Wolf Rising slot game online at Gala Casino.
The graphics of the Wild Wolf slot are reminiscent of the previous two Wolf slots. As you spin the reels, you will see beautiful black, white, brown, and gray wolves, tall totem poles, bonus symbols, and the characters A, K, Q, J, 10, and 9.
The Wolf Rising online slot has 5 reels and 100 paylines. The reels are taller than usual; each one has 8 symbol positions. The wolf symbols are among the most valuable, and as you can see from the screenshots on this page, the wolf symbols can occupy 2 or 3 positions on each reel. This is nice because more winning combinations can be created this way.
With Wolf Run and Wild Wolf, the totem pole symbols occupied only one reel position, and the symbols weren't as valuable as the wolves. But with Wolf Rising, the totem poles are very valuable stacked wilds. Instead of seeing only the top of a totem pole (like on the previous games), you can see the entire totem pole as a tall stack on the reels. The wild stacked totem poles substitute for all other symbols except the scattered bonus symbol, and as you can see from our screenshots, many winning combinations can be created thanks to the stacked wild totem poles!
If 3 green and gold Bonus symbols appear on the middle reel, you win 5 free spins! The graphics are colored a little differently during the free spins, but the payouts are the same. You can win an additional 5 free spins if 3 Bonus symbols appear on the middle reel during the free spins.
The Wolf Rising slot has an average return to player rate of between 93.37% and 96.05%. Your results can be much better or much worse than the average, depending on how long you play.
Nouveau Riche Video Slot - February 2014
Where to play Nouveau Riche Video Slot
Nouveau Riche is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot machine that celebrates all the newly wealthy people around the world. Nouveau Riche is powered by IGT software, and it was launched in February 2014. You can play it now at Gala Casino.
As you spin the reels, you will see 3 beautiful muses, a Nouveau Riche icon, gold pendants featuring green, blue, and violet gems, a white vase, and wild vines.
The wild symbol looks like the word "Wild" in front of a wild vine. The wilds appear stacked on the reels, which is nice because more winning combinations can be created this way. The wild symbol substitutes for all other icons except the scattered white vases.
The Nouveau Riche slot makes use of IGT's "FreeFall" symbols feature, which allows you to win multiple prizes with each spin. Whenever a winning combination is created, the symbols in the winning combination explode and disappear, and the symbols above fall into the empty spaces. At that point, the paylines are evaluated again to see if any new winning combinations are created. The explosions and prizes continue until no new winning combinations appear.
During the base game, the white vases appear only on reels 1, 2, and 3. When 3 of them appear on a payline, the free spins feature is triggered! When this happens, you will see 3 muses, each holding a vase. Choose one of the muses to reveal how many free spins you have won!
During the free spins, a +1 symbol can appear randomly on the middle reel. When this happens, you win one more free spin!
The Nouveau Riche slot has an average expected payback rate of between 93.00% and 96.43%. The game is available at Gala Casino, along with dozens of other popular IGT slots. Check it out!
