Bodog’s Five Best New Casino Games for 2023
The year 2023 has arrived, and with it comes opportunity to try new things and set new goals. We’d like to make 2023 the year of the online slot and have hunted far and wide for new ones that should make it on to everyone’s Must-Spin list for the new year. Whether you like the grind of sports-themed slot games or the wonder of fantasy, we’ve got you covered with our list of the five best new casino games that are waiting for you now.
Heroes: Rise of the Legend
This 5-reel, 50-line slot game is for our fantasy players. Four expanded hero characters (King Arthur, Iron Khan, Princess Yue and Master Jiang) spin through the reels, looking for opportunities to vanquish evil and boost your bankroll. Every time one appears fully, it’s added to the Hero Metre above the reels, where it works towards unlocking the game’s bonus feature.
You’ll need 25 to reach the bonus, at which point, you’re awarded one of the game’s four bonuses (one for each hero). The heroes help you collect a major payout by channelling their own unique strengths.
- King Arthur helps by making all of his icons sticky. The size of the payout will be based on the number of King Arthur icons collected.
- Iron Khan helps by sending wilds through the reels and to create more wins.
- Princess Yue turns one reel wild for the duration of the feature.
- Master Jiang collects Magician icons, and on the last spin, he makes them wild and redistributes them among the reels.
Hear Me Roar
This 243-ways-to-win slot takes place deep in a jungle where all of the characters are wild baby animals that are eager to greet you. As you spin the reels, you’ll experience encounters with baby monkeys, tiger cubs, exotic bird babies and goofy-looking frogs. All of these creatures pay top dollar when you land matches on consecutive reels.
Be on the lookout for the wild and bonus symbols as you spin your way through the lush vegetation; the wild morphs into whatever icon is needed to complete a winning combo. As for the bonus, it offers a special payout and also triggers the game’s free spins feature. Get 8, 15 or 20 free games with wilds that are boosted by multipliers (2X, 3X or 4X). Should you land more than one multiplier, you’ll witness the power of combined multipliers. For example, if you land two 2X multipliers, they combine to become a 4X multiplier. Three 4X multipliers combine for a 64X multiplier. And the best part: free spins can be re-triggered by landing two or more scatters.
We couldn’t list our top new casino games without including a sport title. Football fans will have a ball with this brand-new scratch card. Get a 10-cell or 20-cell card and launch a round. Each cell contains a football and above the cells are five trophies; each trophy contains a winning number. Every time you land a match between your card and a trophy, you get paid—it’s that simple. The amount you’re paid is based on the multiplier beneath the number, and it ranges from 3X to 30000X.
One feature sets this scratch card apart from the rest: the 777X bonus. Before initiating a round, you get the option of betting on the number 777, which pays 777X your bet if it comes through on your card. You can relish the suspense by scratching each cell using your curser, or you can opt for instant gratification by using the “Scratch All” button. With a Return to Player (RTP) that ranges from 97.19% to 97.25%, this game has greater returns than most slots and should make it onto your Must-Spin list for 2023.
Book of Wizard
Five reels are set in a wizard’s library in this 10-payline slot. As you spin them, you’ll see the wizard, along with his possessions, including magic potions, goblets, a Book of Spells, and owls, plus poker symbols 10 to A.
The most important icon to watch for is the Book of Spells, which acts as a wild and scatter. As a wild, it transforms into whatever icon is needed to complete a winning line. As a scatter, it pays an instant win and triggers the game’s free spins feature when you land a minimum of three.
If you manage to trigger free spins, the Book of Spells will open and the pages will be leafed through until two game icons are displayed. These icons become expanding symbols throughout free spins mode, and that leads to lots more wins. If you’re unable to land the three scatters needed to trigger free spins, you can buy the experience by using the “Buy Bonus” button to the left of the reels.
A new vampire-themed slot game has been added to our roster, and it’s proving to be a big hit with fans of the macabre. Brace yourself when you launch this game because you’ll be dodging blood-thirsty monsters as you try to line up matching icons on the game’s 100 paylines. These fearsome predators aren’t all bad, though; they pay considerably more than the poker icons 10 to A when you land three or more.
The game’s bonus symbols include scatters and wilds, both of which are included in the base game. By landing three or more scatters, you pocket a payout and then begin the Vampire Free Spins feature, which sets you up with 15 free spins and triple the payouts. On top of that, you get access to a special set of bonus reels.
Through the bonus reels, you’ll find what you need to slay some massive payouts: the elusive Stacked Coffin Wilds. These can fill the entire reel when they land just right, creating multiple chances to land a winning line. Free spins are repeated if you land another three scatters before they run out.
There you have it – Bodog’s best new casino games to play in 2023. We’ll see you over there.
