New Slots To Play In 2020
For a slot player, a new year also means new slot games and reasons for excitement. According to our sources, 2020 will bring many interesting new slots. 2019 was an ok year for slots. Netent released Narcos on May 23, Reel Rush on November 7th. Finn’s Golden Tavern is to be released on 4th of December followed by Wings of Riches on December 16th.
Microgaming also had a pretty interesting year with many slots released in 2019. Treasures of Lion City and Deco Diamonds Deluxe released on October followed by Volatile Slot and Festive Indulgence released on Nov. According to rumours on January 2020, Microgaming will release Book of Atem a 5 reels 10 lines slot game similar in theme to Book of Ra. Let’s see what new slots we can expect from the best online slot providers Netent and Microgaming in 2020.
New Slots From Netent
With the release of Narcos and Dead or Alive 2 in late 2019, Netent is certainly in the right direction. On November 21 Netent released the Ozzy Osbourne Video Slot, another blockbuster music-themed slot game like Guns n’ Roses, Jimi Hendrix and Motorhead.
What to expect in 2020?
There is no question that Netent likes to stay in touch with reality and trends in general. Seeing how big the hype behind The Witcher TV Series is, it is safe to say that a Witcher Slot Game or the very least a Wicther-themed slot game will happen in 2020.
New Slots From Microgaming
For us, Banana Odyssey and Book of Oz were the only two slot games worth mentioning from Microgaming. Magic of Sahara, Dragon Shard and Zeus Ancient Fortunes were pretty good but below our expectations.
What to expect in the future?
Its no doubt that Microgaming likes to make slots based on popular movies or tv shows, see for example the Game of Thrones slot game. In 2020 for sure they will do this again and surprise us. So what’s next? Mulan, Black Widow or Top Gun lookalike? Whichever it is we are looking forward to it.
All New Slots

Online Slot Trends 2020
The top slot game developers in the industry, Netent, Microgaming, Yggdrasil, Playtech are no doubt planning massive innovations for 2020. What does this mean for slot players? Well, more appealing slot games and perhaps slots with new features. Up until this point, the focus was making slots for mobiles and slots compatible with all devices. Experts say that in 2019 50% of all gambling was done from mobile devices, in 2020 this number is expected to increase, significantly.
What about VR Casinos? There’s some buzz about Virtual Reality Casinos (VR Casinos) and industry leaders are allocating serious resources into it. Virtual Reality Gambling could be the main focus for 2020 and top software developers like Netent and Microgaming are interested in it.
Skill Based Video Slots In 2020?
What if there was a new type of slot game in which the player could have a higher influence in the outcome of “spins”. Sounds pretty amazing if you are a slot player, right? Skill Based Slot Games could be a reality and become fairly popular in 2020 and onwards.
Video game companies are already using it in loot boxes, and are getting pretty successful with it. Online casinos could make the extra step and come up with a “new” type of skill-based video slot game. These new types of games could have multiple levels, leaderboards, multiple game modes and so on. Imagine the possibilities.
Lots of online shooter games are using loot boxes and other paid progression systems. In our view, these PC games are in no way different from online casinos. Perhaps in just one way, in video games, the player cannot win real money. Now, in skill-based slots, players could also win money which would make these types of games fair.
