But which games truly stood out this year? Below, we take a quick look at some of the best mobile games released in the past 12 months.
Emoji Planet by NetEnt
2017 was a big year for emojis both in film and in the mobile casino gaming market. While there are plenty of games now sporting these fascinating emoticons, NetEnt’s Emoji Planet is perhaps the best of them all. NetEnt wanted to do something different with game and we were more than happy with the results. The 6-reel, 5-row game lacks the traditional payline structure and instead uses cluster wins to pay out. There is also 5 additional bonus feature with plenty of wins and loads of fun along the way.
Stars Awakening by Playtech
While it might not have the biggest slot setup, Stars Awakening is a quirky and rewarding alien/space game with brilliant graphics and fun bonus features. Stars Awakening features a 5-reel, 20 payline setup with a distinct lack of free spins. Instead, the game employs the use of a giant symbol which can take up as many as five symbols at once. There is also the re-spin feature which can lead to massive winning combinations.
Slotfather II by BetSoft
Released in March 2017, the sequel to the much loved Slotfather slot comes packed with top-class graphics, big payouts and plenty of bonus features. Everything about this game is bigger and better. The slot setup features 5 spinning reels with 1024 ways to win. If you thought the graphics were impressive, the bonus features will blow you away. Here you can look forward to Wild symbols, Scatters, re-spins, a free spins round and an interactive gangster bonus round.
Beautiful Bones by Microgaming
Microgaming have done some great games over the years and Beautiful Bonus is certainly one of the. This 5-reel, 243 ways to win slot is all about celebrating the Mexican Day of the Dead. Released in June 2017, Beautiful Bones is filled with high quality graphics, vibrant music and high-paying bonus features. What makes the game even more exciting how the bonus features are activated. Instead of landing a 3-symbol combo, players can collect symbols as they pop up on the screen. When enough symbols have been collected, they automatically trigger the bonus.
It’s clear that 2017 was a great year for slots, and 2018 could shape up to be even better!
