2023 has been another big year for those of you who love to play slots online for real money. Since Ontario allowed private companies to legally operate online casinos, the amounts being spent at them has kept on climbing.
Figures released this year show that for the three months up to 30 September 2023, igaming revenue was $540 million, up 105% from the same period last year. Of that amount, $407 million came from online casinos.
When gamblers log into their online casino accounts, it’s usually the slots section that is their first point of call. Such sites regularly offer special promotions that give their members the chance to receive free spins on top slot games. The offering of these bonuses is vital to attract and retain customers in a highly competitive online casino industry in Ontario.
It’s important for online casinos to have a strong portfolio of slot games and to be continually introducing new games. Let’s take a look at a couple of recently released slots that are already thrilling players.
The Master Cat (Leander Games)
There are so many different themes for slot games. Animals are regularly used and that’s the case with this new slot from Leander Games. There are 25 pay lines and 243 different ways to get a win in this cartoonish looking slot.
If you love fairytales then you’ll enjoy playing this slot with symbols including a rabbit, ogre, mouse, castle and a treasure chest. Games need to be a little bit different from others to be successful. Here, we have two scatter symbols rather than the usual one. With a free spins bonus round that gives its players the opportunity to receive additional ones, this is already proving a popular addition at online casinos.
Ultimate Striker (PG Soft)
More money is being gambled at online casinos in Ontario than on sports betting. The two worlds meet here in this soccer themed slot game.
Sports themed slot games can often be as exciting as the sporting events themselves. In the background of this new slot you can see a packed football stadium with fans cheering their heads off. The excitement continues in the game itself which gives players 46,656 different ways to win. There’s also a maximum win of 8000x your stake, just about as exciting as your favorite team scoring the winner in a cup final.
You can get plenty of wins thanks to the Gonzo mechanic. This sees cascading symbols that will hopefully produce one win after another. With increasing multipliers, it’s easy to see why this game is going to be thrilling both soccer and slots fans.
