Thanks to Red Tiger Gaming, one of NetEnt’s smash hits, Piggie Riches, is revamped and enhanced with famed BTG’s mechanic, so the wealthy couple has moved from their 5-reel house with only 15 pay lines to the luxurious 6x7 mansion able to pay up to 10,000x bet.

Mega Wilds and bunches of free spins with increasing multipliers are the main attractions of this incredibly entertaining game. Its high variance is accompanied by a perfectly matching range of stakes that ends already at €10.
- GONZOS QUEST
The first NetEnt’s title to introduce the now-iconic Avalanche feature, Gonzos Quest went live in 2011 and since then, this eccentric adventurer with an epic beard and untold hunger for riches has got millions of admirers.

In addition to striking multipliers generated by magnificent avalanches, here you will also run into amazing free falls designed to bring even bigger prizes.
- LEGACY OF DEAD
The very first of 52 releases planned by Play’n Go for 2020, Legacy of Dead is a 5-reel thriller based around the legends and mysteries of ancient Egypt. The game stuns with the quality of graphics and very high volatility complemented by magical powers of a versatile wild/scatter symbol that replace other icons, pays prizes and triggers free spins.
However, the true highlight…
… of this latest relic is a random expanding symbol that shows up during the bonus rounds to cover the whole reel and help complete even more winning combinations across the ten pay lines, which are not fixed, so players can adjust their number in accordance with individual preferences. Plus, there’s a Gamble option that allows double or quadruple the winnings by correctly guessing the color or suit of a hidden card.
- BONANZA MEGAWAYS™
So far the most popular video slot ever produced by Big Time Gaming, this high-volatile money-making machine gives you a unique chance to hit it really big even from a truly small stake. This is not to say, it’s the only reason for the steady popularity of Bonanza although being able to play at a wager that fits your bankroll is very important for every casino patron.

- DYNAMITE RICHES
Another creation of Red Tiger, this gold-mining themed 5x4 slot was launched at the very end of last year and started 2020 in the fifth place performing a rocket ride to the top.
Powered by thunderous blasts…
… caused by the whole four special features, the explosive venture has a lot to offer in terms of both excitement and payouts. Regardless of whether you’re a newbie or seasoned pro, Mega and Random Wilds, Win Multipliers, removal of all low-paying symbols, as well as amazing Gold Spins are capable of giving a great boost to your bankroll and simply making your day.
Still in the TOP 10 but dropped from the sixth position it occupied in January, Reactoonz is a space-age fun full of hilarious yet a bit eerie aliens. Forerunner of Energoonz, this high-volatile slot has a 7x7 playfield and an array of futuristic extra features with not less hi-tech names such as Quantum Leap, Implosion, Demolition or Alteration.
Long story short…
… it’s one of those games which is much easier to try and see for yourself then explain in words, all the more so all the incredible transformations leave a strong impression. As for us, dropping wilds left by always-power-hungry Gargantoon is a superb addition to the overall electrifying experience.
- RISE OF MAYA
One of the latest additions to NetEnt’s portfolio was made with the use of an old proven formula: high volatility plus an impressive package of extra features nicely balanced by an appropriate RTP of 96.12%. By the way, if you always stick with low-variance games, it’s time to find out why punters love high-volatility slots, which are gaining in popularity.
Set in a pretty uncomfortable place full of dark magic and traces of terror, the 5x3 grid is, in fact, a great spot to be providing all the spoils it offers through a multitude of innovative extras: four types of wild symbols, nudging scatters, free spins, and Bonus bet with re-spins. The wide range of stakes caters to all tastes starting at just €0.10 and going up to a maximum wager of €75.
