In the last couple of years, Evolution gaming has been on a mission. Collecting some of the biggest game studios in the industry under their wing. - This includes Netent, Red Tiger, Ezugi, Big Time Gaming and Digiwheel.
Today, February 8th 2022 evolution introduced bits of the highlights we can expect from the different studios throughout 2022. Including slots, live casino games, some really interesting takes on the new game show concept and more!
Below we’re giving you a taste of what to come, and hopefully some insights into when we can try out these games for ourselves.
So without further ado, here’s the TL;DR from the announcement.
- Cartel Spins - Free spins
- 4 cartel bosses: Each trying to get territory
- Coming quite soon!
- Video Slot Featuring the now globally known cat sanctuary Big Cat Rescue, founded by Carol Baskin and her late husband.
- A portion of the games winning is going to the sanctuary made popular in Tiger King
- Baby puppies now with MegaWays!
- Queen spins: Free spins with Sticky Wilds
- Release 17.02.2022
- Grid based video slot, with the Cluster Buster mechanic
- At the center of the grid you find a dragon egg, that you need to bust open by popping adjacent symbols.
- Cluster Buster is a well known mechanic from Red Tiger, so nothing really new to report here.
- Release: TBA
- Super symbols
- Symbol convert (book of dead style)
- Basically a “Book of game” with a flare
- Release date: 10.02.2022
- Giant Lizard
- Getting a “Kong” vibe from the game
- Collect coins to progress (even where you left of at your favourite casino)
- Release: TBA
- Red tiger taking over production of a Netent classic.
- Making a Megaways version of the loved Blood Suckers game.
- Netent is turning into Evolutions “innovation station” after the acquisition. So we can expect a lot of new thinking, probably some misses, but overall the roadmap shown today had a few really exciting highlights.
- Those us of who remember a time before mobile phones, IOT, and the actual fear of the rise of the machines, remember Mr Hoff and Kit, the AI car driving around solving crimes back in the 80's. Now the classic tv-franchise is rekindled in the form of a brand new video slot from Netent. We can expect:
- Wilds focus - Walking wilds with multiplier
- Guaranteed Wilds with multipliers that stack on top of each other
- Release: 24.02.2022
- Fat and happy cat
- Cash collector game
- Feed the cat cookies, and he feeds you cash.
- Release: TBA
- New concept : Power Points
- Get a win, earn a point
- At different stages, you receive a prize:
- Overall the game looks a bit grindy before you get to the potenziiale
- Kudos for an "industry first" (at least for real money games) with the point system.
- All about wilds
- Lock 1 or 2 wilds
- Expanding reels during free spins (White Rabbit style)
Now this is a title I have my eyes on! Maybe not for exciting new mechanics or win potential (who knows?) What I'm looking forward to see is Netents "Nintendo approach" in Superstars. - Think Nintendo's all stars, just with familiar faces and symbols from some of Netents most popular games throughout the ages.
- A mashup of Netents titles
- Late summer release
- See familiar faces and symbols from the whole Netent repertoire: Gonzo, Finn from Finn and the Swirly spins, Brute from Space Wars, Lady Pig from Piggie Riches and the star from Starburst
