iSoftbet is a London-based slots developer which specialises in colourful and charming casino titles. Although they are unlikely to win any prizes for innovation, iSoftbet’s games are always easy on the eye, feature rich, and offer the potential for big wins. Here are 5 of the best.
This Peter-Pan inspired slot is sure to charm the inner-child in all of us. The typically colourful theme includes characters like Peter Pan himself, Captain Hook and Tinkerbelle, as they voyage on Hook’s ship to the mythical Neverland. The sound of seabirds fill our ears as we spin the reels on this 5-reel, 3-row grid, looking to land one of the 4 different wilds and trigger the 2 bonus rounds. The best of these is the Duelling Free Spins bonus, offering up to 2410x your stake, thanks to ever-increasing multipliers. As if that’s not enough to get you hook-ed, there is even a fun picking game with cash prizes up for grabs. Although Lost Boys Loot is by no means a game with high-payout potential, it sure is an engrossing slot all the same and is the perfect example of iSoftbet’s fun and playful approach.
iSoftbet take us to one of the seven wonders of the world – the Great Wall of China – for this slot, and it is one of the best games of the Chinese genre out there. It integrates the wall itself into the game mechanics in a rather clever way. There are prize sums above each reel, and after each spin, these sums shift to the right. Whenever the emperor symbol appears, the prize above his reel is awarded, whether it be a multiplier or a free spins round. In this bonus round, wins of 2000x are possible, while the double up symbol does as you would expect it to (double your winnings). The Great Wall is a heck of a lot of fun to play and is actually one of the more innovative slots from this studio.
This horse-racing themed slot recently made our Best Slots of March 2020 list, and it will certainly appeal to fans of the gee-gees, as well as leprechauns, pots of gold and all the other Irish clichés. The base game is simple enough. You try to spin 2 or more of the same symbols across one of the 20 paylines, with five of a kind of the game logo bagging you 25x your stake. Spinning the trophy scatter symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 launches the free spins round, and this makes full use of iSoftbet’s trademark megaboard. This is really a lot of fun, as the reels are now surrounded by a racetrack, with each move along the track leading to a reward or a spin modifier. Each time you lap the course, the multipliers increase, with a maximum win of 5000x your stake. Will you have the luck of the Irish?
iSoftbet’s design team is excellent at producing colourful and fun slots, and when they choose happy themes based around party cultures like Mexico, the results are splendid. Pinata Fiesta is a great example of this dynamic, as the slot seems to be taking place in your own private Mexican-themed party. A mariachi band soundtrack plays in the background while the symbols include guitars, cocktails and those crazy pinatas. In the base game, the chili symbol has the highest value, returning 25x for 5 of a kind. And this slot is certainly feature rich, with four random modifiers available if you land the pinata scatter symbol, including mega symbols, wild reels and low value symbols transformed into high value symbols. On top of that, the bonus round has up to 20 free spins available, with those modifiers triggering more frequently. With a 10,000x max payout up for grabs, Pinata Grande doesn’t just look sublime, but has enough reward potential for even casino veterans to play.
The Spanish conquistadors searched fruitlessly for El Dorado, the mythical Aztec city of gold. It’s a shame they didn’t try out this excellent Aztec-themed slot from iSoftbet, as it has all the big money prizes they could dream of. Cascading and wild symbols in the base game mean a nice flow of steady wins, and landing 3 eye scatter symbols will trigger a series of fun and interesting bonus features. These start with a trail bonus game which leads on to a prize pyramid and a free spins round, with up to 1606 times your stake on offer.
These were our favourite iSoftbet slots, but plenty more came close to making the top 5, including Ghosts n’ Gold, Merlin’s Magic Mirror and Gladiators Go Wild. Which slots do you think deserve to be on this list?
- An interesting slot that deviates from the usual Asian-themed slot
- Up to 50 free spins up for grabs
- Multiplier wilds can lead to some big rewards
Ancients of Korea slot is a new game from iSoftBet with a rather nice design that actually stands out a bit from other Asian-themed games which usually feature lots of golden dragons or koi ponds. That said, it is still a relatively simple slot and doesn’t really compare with the likes of most games from PlayNGo or Quickspin, for instance. You have 6 reels in total with 4 rows to give you 4096 ways to win. Simply get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Book or Temple
- Vase, Boat or Map
There is a wild symbol as well which substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the scatter. It appears on all but the first reel.
Ancients Of Korea Slot Bonuses and Features
Free Spins Bonus. In order to trigger this, you’ll need to land 3 or more scatters anywhere in view. 3 will give you 8 free spins, whereas 4 will give you 15, 5 20 and 6 an impressive 50 free spins. During the bonus, any wild symbols that land will turn into 2x or 3x wilds and behave separately, meaning several of these together will create some big reward. Furthermore, the king symbol here and wilds that can be used as the king symbol will pay out even on non-adjacent reels. Lastly, you can win more free spins by landing just 2 scatters giving you 5 more free spins, or 3, 4, 5 or 6 scatters which will give you the same number of free spins as the base game.
Ancients of Korea slot from iSoftBet is a refreshingly different Asian-themed slot with a nice design and some more interesting features than some. The base game doesn’t really have anything going on which is a shame, but the free spins bonus offers a generous number of free spins with enough scatters, and with some good combinations of wild multipliers and the king symbol, you can see rewards reach all the way up to 10,000x your stake. All in all, it’s a decent slot that can be a bit tedious until the free spins bonus, but it’s rewarding enough that you may want to give it a go. We also have plenty of other iSoftBet slot reviews you can check out here.
- Uses a very cool, retro design with 8-bit graphics
- Nice free spins bonus with some good wilds
- Base game is a bit lacking unfortunately
Secrets of the Sorcerer attempts to bring players back to their youth thanks to the 8-bit style graphics and a design that really feels like a fun, retro video game. The sounds are fantastic too and really add to the experience, making you feel as though you are on a quest. You have 5 reels and 3 rows in total, very standard with just 25 pay lines. You need to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
Secrets Of The Sorcerer Slot Bonuses and Features
Secrets Uncovered. This is a randomly triggered feature, either giving you a big win or triggering the free spins bonus.
Bonus Chance. If you land just 2 bonus symbol, you’ll increase your bonus meter, giving you a better chance at getting the main bonus.
Free Spins Bonus. For this you need to land 3 potion symbols on reels 2, 3 and 4 at the same time. You then have a pick me option to choose from one of the potions. These reveal either free spins, or regular symbols which are turned into wilds during the bonus. Wilds can have multipliers on them up to 5x and substitute for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the scatter. You can also land more scatters during the bonus to get you more free spins. Lastly, the wizard symbol can give you a big win at random.
Secrets of the Sorcerer slot from iSoftBet looks brilliant thanks to the old video-game style design and cool graphics. This works even better with the sound effects. The gameplay itself isn’t bad, with a good free spins bonus that can offer some nice multipliers and lots of wilds, helping you achieve that 6,714x your stake win. The base game is a bit lacking unfortunately, so it would have been nice to see more features here. All in all, if you like retro slots with decent wins and a medium volatility, this could well be for you. We also have other iSoftBet slot reviews you can check out here.
- A deceptively good slot with a dull theme
- Collect cash rewards in the free spins bonus
- Ultra Bet spices things up and increases payouts
I know what you’re thinking, not another Egyptian-themed slot with familiar features and nothing exciting going on. But actually, Pyramid Pays slot from iSoftBet has a great twist which can lead to some nice rewards and really changes things up and that’s all thanks to the ultra bet. Before I come onto that in more detail though, let’s discuss the basics.
Yes, the design of this game is tired and uninspiring. It’s a real shame they didn’t get more creative but there we go. You have 5 reels and 3 rows to give you 243 ways to win. You just need a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 9 or 10
- Jack or Queen
- King or Ace
- Eye of Horus
There is a wild symbol as well which substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from scatters. They appear only on reels 2, 3 and 4 and multiply all wins they are part of by 2x.
Pyramid Pays Slot Bonuses and Features
Free Spins Bonus. This is triggered by landing a scatter on reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time, giving you 15 free spins. Landing scatters like this again during the bonus will give you 1 extra free spin, but more importantly it will trigger the pyramids pay feature. Here you’ll be taken to the pyramid with different segments up to 100x. A random segment is chosen and you’ll be given a shown amount as a reward. You can win all the segments in a single bonus round but not the same one twice. You can also double the multipliers by landing a double boost symbol on reel 5.
Ultra Bet. This is quite an exciting feature as you can choose to play 50 spins for 50x your stake. Here you can collect stars where 5 or more will give you a prize, shown as a multiplier of your current bet. If you trigger a bonus here, it will be played after the 50 spins end.
Pyramid Pays slot from iSoftBet may look like another dull Egyptian-themed game but it has a great trick up its sleeve in the ultra bet option. Collecting stars allow you to increase your winnings and also means you can rack up bonuses to be played all in one go once the 50 spins are over. Without the ultra bet, this is a fairly boring game so definitely take advantage of it.
- A new Megaways slot with an unlimited win multipliers
- Massive payouts up for grabs in this game
- Wild Hammer Match feature sets it apart
Wild Hammer Megaways slot is a new game that uses the popular mechanic from Big Time Gaming. With this you can expect some impressive rewards mostly thanks to increasing multipliers. The theme is pretty familiar but it looks good and I still prefer it over other themes like Asian or Aztec designs. You have 6 reels in total with a changing number of rows, and a row on top with just 4 reels, giving you up to 117,649 ways to win. You just need a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols which are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 10, Jack or Queen
There is a wild symbol as well which substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the wild hammer bonus symbol.
Wild Hammer Megaways Slot Bonuses and Features
Cascades. As a Megaways slot, you’ll not be surprised to see cascades here. This means that winning symbols are removed from the reels to allow new ones to fall in, all within the same spin.
Wild Hammer Match. If you get 2 or more matching regular symbols on the top reel it will turn all instances of that symbols on other reels wild.
Free Spins Bonus. For this you’ll need 4 bonus symbols and you’ll then get to choose one of 4 bonuses, starting with 10 free spins and a 1x multiplier, 8 free spins with a 3x multiplier, 5 free spins and a 5x multiplier or a mystery choice, giving you a random number of free spins and multipliers. Here you have an unlimited win multiplier in play, meaning that any wins and cascades will increase your multiplier, starting with the figure you chose originally.
Wild Hammer Bet. Outside of the U.K., you can choose to trigger the free spins bonus for 85x your stake.
Wild Hammer Megaways slot from iSoftBet is a fairly traditional Megaways game that focuses on building multipliers up in the free spins bonus with each cascade. There is the wild hammer match feature as well though which sets it apart a bit, and it’s a nice feature actually that can give you some big wins even during the base game. With a huge 50,000x your stake reward to be had, this is certainly an impressive game even if it’s not too original, so check it out if you enjoy other Megaways slots and want some big wins.
- The latest version of the Hot Spin slot from iSoftBet
- Trigger 10 features from the hot spin wheel
- Huge win potential and a great free spins bonus
iSoftBet have released a new Megaways title based on their original Hot Spin slot so as you can imagine the win potential has gone up here to a very impressive 50,000x your stake. If you’re looking for a game with big win potential and lots of features, this could be for you.
I have to say I really like the design of this game with its bright colours and clear symbols. You have 6 reels and up to 117,649 ways to win. All you need is a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols which are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- Cherries or Lemon
- Plum or Watermelon
- Bell or Star
There is a wild symbol also which substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the scatter. It appears only on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Hot Spin Megaways Slot Bonuses and Features
Cascades. As a Megaways title, you won’t be surprised to see that cascades are available here, meaning winning symbols are removed to allow new ones to fall in from above within the same spin.
Hot Spin Wheel. This wheel can trigger on any random spins and provides up to 10 random modifiers including extra wild symbols, syncing reels, Max Megaways and many more. It can also provide an instant trigger of the free spins bonus if you’re lucky.
Free Spins Bonus. This is triggered either through the hot spin wheel or by landing 4 scatters at any point. You can then choose to start the bonus with 15 free spins and a 1x multiplier, 10 free spins and a 3x multiplier, 5 free spins and a 5x multiplier or a random combination of the two. An unlimited win multiplier is in play here, meaning each cascade will increase your multiplier by 1x. You also have a new wheel which offers up to 12 wilds, max Megaways, mystery symbols, a multiplier book of 3x or it will remove some low value symbols from the reels. Lastly, you can land 2 scatters for 3 extra free spins, or 3 scatters for 5 more free spins.
Hot Spin Megaways slot from iSoftBet is a fully-featured game with a lot going on which makes it very fun to play most of the time. There are so many features on offer here such as extras wilds, multipliers, max Megaways. It’s a lot of fun and they can trigger at any point through the wheel, though this doesn’t happen quite as often as you might like it to. The free spins bonus enhances the wheel and also offers an unlimited win multiplier which is nice, making it much more creative than many Megaways games which just do an unlimited win multiplier. To top it all off you can win up to 50,000x your stake and the RTP is a very decent 95.98%. I really like this game, I think it’s much better than the original and the Megaways have made a good improvement so be sure to check it out or find some of their other slots here.
May 2021 was a great month for slots, with a series of innovative releases hitting the online casinos, as well as the usual plethora of Megaways slots. Plus, we had some slots with a truly mammoth potential to keep the big win hunters satisfied. Let’s dive in.
iSoftBet came out with this Megaways slot based around Sherlock Holmes’s arch-nemesis Moriarty, and what a great-looking slot it is too. The vibe is dark and smoggy, just like the Victorian London where Moriarty, Watson, and Sherlock pitted their wits against each other. Features wise, there are cascades, wilds, and mystery symbols, while the free spins are where the big wins are to be found. Unlimited multipliers in this bonus feature can see you win up to 37,500x your stake.
Instalment number 4527 in Play n’ Go’s Book of Dead series is Scroll of Dead, and while the Egyptian theme probably is a tad overplayed at this point, this slot still manages to entertain and surprise. For a start, the free spins unlock a 6th reel, and additional scatters during this bonus add extra spins. The usual random expanding symbol is also in play. And while the max win potential is still on the low side (7500x), Ancient Egypt fans aren’t likely to care and will play Scroll of Dead again and again… until Play n’ Go release the next title in the series.
This Thunderkick title might be quite a mouthful, but Baron Bloodmore & The Crimson Castle is the kind of classic spooky slot that would be perfect for Halloween. Why it ended up dropping in May is anyone’s guess, but it looks great, has a decent set of features, and comes with big win potential. The symbol set includes various vampires, wolves, and gargoyles, while massive mystery symbols add intrigue – and decent wins – in the base game. They are also guaranteed to land in each spin in the free spins round, while the Crimson Cash bonus game sees you play with symbols containing multipliers (up to 50x). It’s crazy volatile, but that doesn’t seem to put off most slot players these days, so Thunderkick probably will have a hit on its hands.
NetEnt’s Dazzle Me Megaways is a simple take on the popular mechanic, with a bright and happy colour scheme and a focus on wilds. In the base game, dazzling wild reels sees the middle reels filled with wilds, which practically guarantees a win. The avalanche feature sees more wilds get added on each respin during the free spins, which is where the bigger wins come.
Red Tiger also has a megaways title up its sleeve. Pirates’ Plenty looks sublime, with a dark colour scheme that perfectly complements the shiny reels and colourful characters who spin on them. Map symbols are collected to unlock max ways to win (over 200,000), while Lady Anne fully expanded wilds come with multipliers of up to 8x. There’s a monkey that appears at random as a sticky wild (and removes the low pays), and a free spins round. Pirate slots are always great fun, and this casino game is no exception.
This medieval slot from Kalamba looks a bit… meh. But it follows the popular Kalamba playbook of collecting symbols during the base game which then triggers the free spins round. I personally enjoy watching my progress towards the bonus round, and with classic symbols such as fruit and bells on the reels, this slot works for me. There is a cashpot jackpot bonus, as well as the standard free spins, where the number of spins, as well as multiplier, depends on which meter you fill up first. Joker Times comes with a max win of 21,000x which should be enough to satisfy the streamers.
NoLimit City has produced some of the most innovative and visually stunning slots over the last year or so, and they hit another one out of the park in El Paso Gunfight. Named after a famous pistol battle in 1881 (also known as Four Dead in Five Seconds), this slot has a Western feel, a 5-reel grid with 43,334 ways to win, and a choice of volatility settings (high and extreme). The slot makes full use of the xNudge mechanic, respins, and comes with no less than 3 free spins rounds. With max wins of 44,440x up for grabs, El Paso Gunfight is another impressive release from this developer, and we can’t wait to see what it comes up with next.
This Big Time Gaming slot basically only has one thing going for it – the win potential. But oh boy, with a max return of 46,000x in the base game, and 114,000x in the bonus round, Wild Flower is sure to prove popular, despite its basic design. The theme is an esoteric one, with pentagrams, wolves, moons, and witches featuring as symbols, and two free spins rounds, one of which comes with 12 free spins, and 800x multipliers.
If you suffer from coulrophobia (fear of clowns), we advise you not to play 3 Clown Monty by Play n’ Go. The face-painted funny men in this slot are every bit as creepy as Pennywise and add a dark twist to the game. Multiplier wilds give good potential for big wins in the base game, and the free spins round comes with another potentially lucrative round built-in. This Monty Spins bonus is triggered by landing 2 or more scatters within the free spins round and features multipliers that don’t reset, and sticky wilds. There’s the potential for 20,000x wins here, as long as you can stomach those creepy clowns.
Play N’ Go gets a third entry on this month’s list with Hammerfall. It’s another of those slots from this studio based around an obscure Scandi metal band. As well as the usual rock screeching, and generic guitar soundtrack, the slot features a scary looking knight who bears a passing resemblance to The Mountain from GoT. He stands to the right of the 7×7 grid, made up of colourful gemstones, which form winning clusters, and there’s an avalanche system going on too. Consecutive winning clusters are added to a hammer meter on the left, and once you build up 25 of them, you get some modifiers added on to the next spin. It looks really good, and the hammer meter means that Hammerfall is quite a decent slot to play, but the soundtrack was pretty off-putting for me.
Primate King slot comes from Red Tiger, and as the name suggests, embraces a King Kong theme. There are not many of those around, to be sure, so fans of the movies will give this one a go. They will love the graphics, which are drawn in a cartoon style, as well as the range of features in the base game, with our favourite being the angry gorilla which randomly removes the low pays from the reels. There’s no free spins round here, but wins of 10,000x are possible, which is pretty high for this studio.
The last of the Megaways titles on our list, All41Studio’s Joyful Joker is a simple-looking game with a classic symbol set made up of fruit, bells, and Lucky 7’s. But we do get a multiplier side wheel which brings plenty of excitement, particularly when it works together with the avalanche feature (called Rolling Reels here), as each successive respin adds a +1 multiplier. This feature carries over to the free spins, and the multipliers are unlimited, so 23,000x is possible. It just goes to show to even simple designs can wow slot fans as long as enough moolah is at stake.
No less than 12 slots made the cut in the month of May, a new record for the year. It seems that developers are really bringing out their big guns after a slow start to the year. With the Euros about to kick off, most likely slot studios will take it easy over the summer, although you never know.
- A great Megaways slot with big win potential
- Based on the popular villain from Sherlock Holmes
- Sherlock and Watson features work quite nicely
Moriarty Megaways slot is based on the infamous villain Moriarty, the arch-nemesis of Sherlock Holmes. There are quite a few slots with this theme but this one looks great, and the features work quite well with it as we’ll soon see. It has a familiar reel layout for a Megaways game, with 6 main reels with changing numbers of rows, and a top row with less reels above it. All you need to do is get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols which are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
Moriarty Megaways Slot Bonuses and Features
Top Tracker. This is the top row above the regular reels and wilds can appear here, substituting for all of the above symbols in a winning combination.
Cascades. This game has cascades, meaning that winning symbols are replaced by new ones falling in from above within the same spin.
Sherlock’s Max Megaways. On any random spin, the maximum number of ways to win 117,649 will apply. A multiplier is also in play here, starting at 1x and increasing by 1x for each cascade.
Watson’s Mystery Symbols. This can also be triggered on any spin, where mystery symbols can land turning into the same symbol. A multiplier is also in play here for each cascade.
Free Spins Bonus. For this you need 3 bonus symbols anywhere on the reels at the same time, giving you 15 free spins. Each additional bonus symbol will give you 5 more free spins. You need to collect 3 Holmes of Watson symbols to unlock their respective reels, giving you a free spin on them with their own feature active. An unlimited win multiplier is also in play throughout the bonus which doesn’t reset.
Bonus Buy. This game lets you buy the bonus for 150x your stake, but this only applies outside the U.K.
Moriarty Megaways slot from iSoftBet is a bit of a different game with some nice features. In the base game both the Sherlock and Watson features are pretty good if you get a few cascades in a row to build up the multiplier, but the free spins bonus is where you’re more likely to get the 37,500x win potential this game offers. It’s a pretty fun game overall that looks impressive and has some clever features with big win potential. I’d certainly recommend it if you like Megaways titles as this is one of the better ones. You can also find some of our other slot reviews for iSoftBet here.
- Dragon Match feature is quite original
- Megaways mechanics offers some good win potential
- The unlimited multiplier works the same as many other slots
Dragon Match Megaways slot is a new Megaways title from iSoftBet, probably not the first name you think of when you hear Megaways. That said, they’ve produced some good games in the past so there’s real potential here. This slot has a Chinese theme with symbols like dragons and lotus flowers all present. The reels setup is fairly similar to other Megaways slots, although there are only 4 reels in total, with the top row having only 2 reels. To get going, simply spin the reels and try to get a winning combination from left to right using the base symbols. These are as follows, ranked in ascending order based on their value:
- 10 or Jack (lowest value)
- Lotus Flower
- Golden Dragon (highest value)
In addition to these, there’s a wild symbol which substitutes for all other symbols in a winning combination apart from the dragon match symbol.
Dragon Match Megaways Slot Bonuses and Features
Cascading Wins. iSoftBet have included cascading wins in this slot, meaning all winning symbols are removed from the reels such that new ones fall in, within the same spin, and can trigger more wins as a consequence. This can continue to happen until there are no more wins, all within the same spin.
Dragon Match. If you match symbols on the top reel, they will turn into wilds and all instances of the same symbol on the 2 reels below will also turn wild.
Free Spins Bonus. To trigger this you need 2 dragon match symbols on the top reel. You then have a choice form the following:
- 12 free spins with a 1x starting multiplier.
- 8 free spins with a 3x starting multiplier.
- 5 free spins with a 5x multiplier.
- Random number of spins with a random multiplier.
You can win additional free spins by landing 2 more dragon match symbols on the top reel. This bonus, like many others you’ve probably played, has an unlimited win multiplier. Every time you get a cascade, your multiplier increases by 1x.
Dragon Match Megaways slot from iSoftBet has a different theme to most Megaways titles, many opting for an animal theme or something to that effect. The Chinese theme is popular and well done here with some nice graphics, but apart from that the game is pretty similar to others. The dragon match symbol is unique and can work reasonably well to give you some extra wilds, and there’s no mystery symbol feature in play here. But if you’re playing this slot it’s no doubt for the free spins bonus and the unlimited win multiplier which is still the same. Don’t get me wrong, it can work well and I like it, but there are so many out there and this one just doesn’t stand out enough for me. You can see some of their other slots here if you’re interested.
