The Gambling Industry Monthly Review – July 2021
It’s time to press an online gambling rewind button and remember all the most important industry events for the month of July 2021. From new, exciting slots to sensational wins of casino streamers, let’s take a look at what made the biggest splash across the iGaming community.
New Video Slots and Bonus Features
The slot providers definitely raised the temperature to the Sizzling Hot on the thermometer this July by releasing numerous first-class games. However, among the dozens of titles, some of them really stood out on the iGaming scene due to their amazing graphics as well as entertaining and highly rewarding gameplay.
NetEnt’s Starburst XXXtreme, the first high-profile title since the studio was acquired by Evolution Gaming, is the sequel of the legendary Starburst slot released back in 2012. The providers amped up the game with an astronomical 200,000x winning potential and engaging bonus features.
Pragmatic Play launched several video slots in July but the most memorable one is certainly Chicken Drop. Inspired by the idyllic farm atmosphere, this game plays out on a 7×7 grid with cascading reels. Progressive features including multipliers and symbol size, up to 20 Free Spins in the bonus round, and a winning potential of 5,000x the bet. Overall, a great reel-spinning package of fun and excitement.
Nolimit City releases one new game per month and this time they decided for an apocalyptic vibe in their xWays Hoarder slot. The best description of the game comes from Per Lindheimer, the Product Owner at NoLimit City:
“A game for all you Karen’s out there. An outrageous game with a slightly lower simulated max wins that you usually see from us at Nolimit City – but also with a much more frequent max win ratio– no reason to call for the manager this time!”
Relax Gaming on the other hand decided to take the bonus round from one of their most played game – Money Train 2 and turn it into Money Cart 2. The Hold and Win in Money Train 2 has reached a legendary status thanks to action-packed gameplay with highly rewarding features and astronomical winning potential of 50,000x the stake. This slot perfectly showcases why Relax Gaming is considered one of the best software providers out there. The studio took the most engaging part of the highly popular game and revamped it in the best possible way.
Casino Streamers Big Wins
It’s always fun and exciting in the land of casino streaming! During the month of July, Roshtein, DeuceAce, VonDice, and PressPlayTTV have had some quite memorable moments on the Twitch gaming platform.
Andrew aka VonDice managed to hit a mega big €309,270 win playing Buffalo King Megways on a €100 bet. DeuceAce was also lucky with his €200,000 win on Gems Bonanza.
Roshtein, the leading slots streamer, has landed some breathtaking wins. On a €400 bet in Dinopolis by Push Gaming, he got €400,000 in just one spin. Evolution Gaming’s legendary Crazy Time game has brought the most popular casino streamer €200,000 in the Pachinko bonus game. And while playing 10 free spins in Coils of Cash by Play’n Go, the total win at the end of this bonus game was €153,490. Mystery Museum is one of the favorite games for casino streaming due to its great winning potential and Rosh has already hit the million euro mark several times with this release. In July, he got almost half a million euro win by spinning reels. Although €1.4 million on Gates of Olympus is impressive, the breaking of the world record with 2.5 million during the base game in Fruit Party is an unforgettable casino streaming moment.
