New arrivals include Barcrest’s Golden Chief & Novomatic’s Apollo God of the Sun

It might be the height of summer but there’s been no slackening in the pace of new slots releases. Hitting the online casino shelves this week are Novomatic’s Apollo God of the Sun and the Native American-themed Golden Chief from Barcrest.

Whether it’s ancient gods or Native American wisdom, both new games offer some unusual gameplay and features. Both can be played at the online casinos mentioned below:

Apollo God of the Sun – Novomatic

Ancient Greece has become one of the most popular hunting rounds of slots players and that’s the setting for Apollo God of the Sun. If you think this is going to be a standard Novomatic slot, then think again.

The design is a big improvement on many of the developer’s previous releases. The gameplay has been given a major overhaul too as the game is played over 2 reel sets – the second of which stretches 12 rows high, to create 100 paylines. Look out for stacks of wilds that can jump from the main set to the big set.

We’re pleased to say that the usual free spins round is present and correct. The added extra here are expanding wilds which can clone and jump to the other set of reels when they hit. Check out the Apollo God of the Sun slot review for more details.

Golden Chief – Barcrest

Golden Chief from Barcrest also offers some unusual gameplay. The base game in this wilderness adventure is played using a 5 reel, 20 payline game engine. Watch out for the Golden Chief wild though. He not only expands to fill the whole reel when he hits, he also extends the reels to offer 100 paylines.

Other goodies on offer include mystery symbol upgrades which can turn lower value symbols into something more rewarding. Spin the bonus wheel to win free spins, a stroll around the Cash Canyon or a trek up the Totem Trail where the further you progress the bigger the prizes on offer.
