We’re definitely getting in the mood for Christmas with this edition of the best new online slots of the week! But along the way, we’ve also got room for a trip to the Minotaur’s maze and an adventure-packed journey into the jungle.

Fantasma Games’ Maze Escape Megaways is the latest 2020 release to feature big-paying multiway action. Create the Minotaur’s maze and enjoy cash prizes with the special blocker symbols. Then, we head into Santa’s Grotto, where a very grump elf resides. Play Gaming Corps’ Angry Elf slot for a top payout worth 60,000 coins.

High 5 Games are no strangers to multiway games. And Kingdom of Gold: Mystic Ways is definitely the slot for you if you love growing reels on each and every spin. Finally, we head back to the Arctic in Gaming1’s Robo Santa’s Factory: A Christmas Tale. Fill the wild meters and trigger the bonus for a shot at winning the jackpot.

Dare you enter the Minotaur’s maze? Venture into a world of Greek myths in Fantasma Games’ Maze Escape Megaways with special blocker symbols and a host of exciting bonus features.

BTG’s Megaways mechanic has been getting a good outing in recent years. iSoftBet have been one of the foremost developers using the multiway feature, but Fantasma Games aren’t far behind.

Flower Fortunes Megaways was one of the top multiway slots of 2019. Now, it looks like Maze Escape Megaways will rank among the best releases of 2020. The game is steeped in Greek mythology, specifically the tale of the Minotaur’s maze. On every spin, two to seven symbols will tumble down onto each reel, creating a ‘maze’ across the screen.

You might hit it lucky and get seven symbols per reel, or anywhere from two to five. Obviously, the more symbols you land, the more megaways you’ll hit.

On every spin, you’ll find up to six ‘Blocker’ symbols on each reel. These don’t form part of a winning combination, but they will lock into position. You’ll unlock them later on during the Shifting Maze Avalanche, and each blocker unlocks free spins, added multipliers, or the Guidance of Athena feature.

You can trigger the Shifting Maze Avalanche by hitting a winning combination with a symbol that lands in the special position on the left of the reels. The reels will shift one place to the left, with a new reel added to the right side of the game area. Two Blockers will then be unlocked at random.

With some big bonus features included – we’re definitely fans of the expanding Minotaur wilds – Maze Escape Megaways is well worth a play. Try it for free at VegasSlotsOnline.

Does the festive season give you the grump? Then Angry Elf might be your pick of the best new online slots of the week.

Are you prepared to brave the wrath of Nathan-yell? The Angry Elf is on the rampage in this 20-payline slot from Gaming Corps that comes packed with magical Christmas wins.

The star of the game is Nathan-yell, one of Santa’s more bad-tempered elves who got fired after 300 years of drinking and cursing. Nathan-yell has decided to hang around and wreak a little havoc in the North Pole. If the Elf of the Shelf leaves you cold every year, Gaming Corps’ new online slot is definitely for you.

You can trigger a different feature depending on the color of the bonus symbol: white, gold, or red. A white bonus symbol triggers 2-5 prizes, a red symbol triggers 6-13 prizes, while the gold symbol triggers 14-16 possible prizes.

During the game, you can also trigger up to 880 free spins. In addition, you can bank a potential cash prize worth 60,000 coins. And if that isn’t enough Christmas cheer for you, you can land prize multipliers worth 2x to 7x.

Angry Elf is one of the more humorous online slots we’ve covered over the past year or so. The animation is cute, especially when Nathan-yell bursts onto the screen. Let the grumpy elf cheer you up this Christmas as you play the game for free today.

Are you ready for more adventure? Join us as we go on the hunt for priceless artefacts in High 5 Games’ Kingdom of Gold: Mystic Ways slot. Along the way, you can trigger free spins with expanding wilds, or hit the Win Out Ways special symbols to grow the reels.

Belgian developers Gaming1 have been busy revealing a variety of slots in 2020. Horus Tempe, Dice of Mystery, and Mystic Pyramid were all action-packed slots with big bonuses. Robo Santa’s Factory: A Christmas Tale offers players something a little lighter during this festive season. It’s a five-reel game with 178 paylines and a top payout worth 5,000x.

And if you love wild symbols, you’ll definitely get a Christmassy feeling with this slot. As you land wilds on the reels, they will collect in the meter above that reel.

Once you’ve amassed four wilds on a reel, you will trigger the Present Avalanche feature. You’ll hit three respins with wild gifts stacked up on the reels. In addition, some of the gifts can open to reveal bonus symbols.

Robo Santa’s Factory: A Christmas Tale has a potentially lucrative bonus feature, too. You’ll trigger it by landing 3+ bonus symbols in any position on the reels. Moving to a second set of reels, every position spins independently. Any Christmas presents will lock in place while the remaining positions spin.

Plus, all presents feature prize multipliers which accumulate alongside the reels. You can even trigger additional multipliers which are added on at the end of the feature.

Robo Santa’s Factory: A Christmas Tale is the perfect game to spin while you’re getting ready for December 25. Try the game for free and enjoy some festive fun.
