Casumo | Top Casino Game Releases 2022
Time flies when you’re having fun, right? The first month of 2023 has passed by in flash, and we’ve already said a very Happy New Year to a bunch of super new slots in January.
But there was a time long before that… 2022. And now seems the perfect moment to call out the exciting arrivals that became firm favourites throughout last year.
So without further ado, here’s our list of the top game releases of 2022. Take it away…
January: Chilli Xtreme Ways Boost (Playtech)
With all that winter weather, we really needed warming up in January – and what better way to do that than by welcoming Chilli Xtreme Ways Boost to the Casumo collection. The New Year got off to a sizzling start with this red-hot slot from Playtech; a Mexican-themed adventure filled with tacos, tequila, peppers and piñatas.
This spicy slot soon became a hot hit thanks to a feast of fiery features – Free Spins, and Cascading Wins active during every spin. 4096 paylines are spread across six reels and four rows, and an extra row is added with every win… not stopping until there are an incredible 262,144 paylines!
This flaming fiesta is bursting with flavour and fun. Can you handle the heat?
February: Extra Juicy Megaways (Pragmatic Play)
After a fiery start to 2022, it was time for a fruity February – and Extra Juicy Megaways provided Casumo players with the light refreshment. As with all slots that have had the Megaways makeover, there are a whopping 117,649 ways to win, plus the potential to pick up a payout of 5,000x your stake.
Extra Juicy Megaways is as classic as they come; a traditional fruit machine with a bunch of berries and a citrus selection, along with the bells and 7s you’d come to expect on a traditional ‘fruity’. The tasty Tumble Win mechanic and the Semi-Sticky Multiplier Scatters add an extra edge to the original and ensures this fruit never goes bad.
March: Big Bamboo (Push Gaming)
In March, we headed deep into China’s bamboo forests where the world’s rarest bear, the Giant Panda, could be seen chomping away. Now the panda might be pretty cute, but Push Gaming don’t need to be – they’ve simply delivered an awesome 5×6 slot with minimalist artwork and easy gameplay, making this an absolute delight to play.
Every spin on Big Bamboo has bags of potential; the fantastic features include Golden Bamboo – which triggers multipliers, instant prizes, and Free Spins – and the Gamble Feature, giving you the chance to climb higher and win more.
The top instant prize combined with the top multiplier can lead to results bigger than the Giant Panda itself! The more greens for the panda means more green for you – and it’s feeding time!
April: Moon Princess 100 (Play’n Go)
Girl Power took over in April as Moon Princess 100 landed in the Casumoverse, a Play’n GO title that blends a unique anime theme with the classic slot features you know and love. You might recognise the Moon Princess name – there have been a number of editions since its 2017 introduction – and like the rest, this one is slot royalty.
The Girl Power feature and the Princess Trinity bring the glitz and glamour and with its slick style, Bonus Spins feature, and boosting modifiers, Moon Princess 100 is a standout slot that reigns supreme.
May: King Blitz (Playtech)
While March took us to Asia, May transported us effortlessly into Africa with King Blitz – a super safari slot from Playtech. Set in the stunning Serengeti National Park, the latest edition to the Blitz family makes the Lion the star of the show. They’re the Kings of the Jungle, after all.
Eye-catching visuals and a beautiful backdrop take this 6×4 game to another level, but the gameplay is equally as impressive. Free Games, a Jackpot Blitz with four Progressive Jackpots plus 4096 ways to win – you could be roaring with delight and clawing in wins on this safari spectacular.
June: Big Bass Splash (Pragmatic Play)
We thought there was something fishy going on back in the summer, but there was nothing to be worried about – it was just Big Bass Splash, a fishing frenzy that had us catching all the feels.
This classic casino caper from Pragmatic Play has all the symbols you’d expect from a riverside fishing trip, but it’s all about the bass… The big fish that unlocks the Free Spins Feature and the potential to reel in 5,000x your bet. Get that in your net.
July: Dork Unit (Hacksaw)
Things got a bit silly in July with the Dork Unit coming to town. But the main protagonist aside, there’s no clowning around on this quirky little game from Hacksaw Gaming!
As with all Hacksaw games, unique and innovative artwork can be expected, yet the 5×4, 16-payline slot takes on a more traditional fruit machine format. Fruits and playing cards fill the reels, along with Lenny the Clown who has a few multipliers up his sleeve.
August: Phoenix Paradise (Thunderkick)
Now we’re on fire! Rising up from the flames in August was Phoenix Paradise, a 3×5, highly volatile slot with 15 fixed paylines. Join Jeanette – our trusty explorer – on a journey into a mythical world on a hunt for hidden treasure.
Beneath the surface of this Thunderkick thriller are a feast of fiery features, including a Walking Wilds Feature and a Bonus Game with Free Spins and Retriggers to help you on your quest for riches.
It’s a classic idea done well, and an expedition you simply have to embark on.
September: Money Train 3 (Relax)
Choo-Choo! It was all aboard Money Train 3 in September, when this slot from Relax Gaming pulled up to the Casumo platform. But when it got there, we soon realised those blasted bandits were back on board for the third – and dare we say it, best – instalment of the trilogy to date.
Look out for new machines – there’s the Persistent Shapeshifter which transforms into any feature, the Absorber soaks up and adds multipliers, and the Tommy Gun taking aim and adding value.
It’s not the Great Train Robbery, it’s just a great train slot. On you get.
October: Casumo Bonanza (Pragmatic Play)
Happy Birthday to us! Casumo turned 10 in 2022 and to celebrate our awesomeness, we did something even awesomer… launched our own game. And it’s undoubtedly the sweetest slot in our selection.
This Casumo Exclusive tickles the taste buds with yummy features everywhere you look, along with the chance to win over 21,100x your bet. The Tumbling Feature, Free Spins Feature, Ante-Bet Feature and Buy-In Features are sure to leave you with a sweet tooth, and that’s before we get started on the Candy Bomb Multipliers and Sumo Lollipop Scatters. Tasty!
November: Rise of Olympus 100 (Play’n Go)
The sequel to a classic. Play’n GO have breathed new life into their 2018 effort, Rise of Olympus, turning things up to 100 with another God-like adventure from Greek Mythology. Electrifying animations and glorious gold colours give this slot a sense of stature, but that’s not the only thing that catches the eye.
How about the potential to pick up 100 Free Spins? Or there’s the Hand of God feature – launched when the charge meter is full – which strikes the Gods into action. Oh, and not forgetting the Clear the Grid prize, updating the multiplier by x50 and earning instant rewards. Your destiny is in the laps of the Gods.
December: Bigger Bass Blizzard Christmas Catch (Pragmatic Play)
Big Bass Splash was a hit in June, but things got bigger (and breezier) six months later, when Pragmatic Play delivered Bigger Bass Blizzard Christmas Catch down the chimney.
Don’t be put off by the frozen lakes – you can still break through the ice and reel in the wins on this cool 5×4 slot. Sleigh bells ring in the background, snowmobiles speed over the reels, and the festive Fishermen go Wild on this Christmas caper.
