May 2016 – Top of Slots

Football Champions Cup was launched on May 23 and is performing pretty much in the same way as the NetEnt release – Jimi Hendrix – did last month. Starburst is the best slot for yet another month. Hendrix slot falls down to place number 4. Aloha and Guns N’ Roses – other 2016 releases by NetEnt are tenth and eleventh respectively.

Chilli Gold 2 is a sensation of May. The supplier Lightning Box Games from Sydney was never even close to Top 10 before. In February they entered a distribution agreement with NextGen. It took a couple of months for them to get all the technical stuff working. Chilli Gold 2 is the first success of this partnership. This jackpot is connected to Stellar Jackpots, which makes the whole gaming experience a bit weird. You get to travel from Mexican desert to space, if you win a bonus jackpot round. Who cares? This slot game seems to be doing really well.

The Wild Chase makes a really strong second month. New releases of May seem all be quite boring and short-lived. It seems that everyone is preparing themselves for Euro 2016 Championships and for Amsterdam conference in June.

In the end of May King of Pop slot was launched. This one had all eyes on it. This is a Michael Jackson-themed slot by Scientific Games or SG Interactive. You get to listen to his music and see his moves, while playing the game. We must say that now, a week after launch, this slot feels more like an office bomb. Of course, it will perform quite well next month. However, we would be really surprised to see it stay at Top of Slots in July.

Most of last week’s non-NetEnt releases (Bar Bar Black Sheep, Bloopers, More Monkeys, etc.) did not make it to Top 20 in May. An exciting thing worth mentioning is that we have a very first slot from the supplier Push Gaming in Top of Slots – Ultimate Dream Team football-themed game.
