It feels like a long time since Realtime Gaming was founded, created to rival the likes of Microgaming and to offer something a little different to the online gambling industry which, at the time, was growing bigger and bigger everyday. The truth is that it has been a long time, as RTG was founded way back in 1998.
A has happened since then, but RTG have remained at the head of the industry, offering some of the best games around. In this article we’ll look at the best slot machines released by RTG in 2015. They didn’t release a lot, but what we have seen so far this year we have loved.
In May we saw the release of Lucha Libre, a slot with a Mexican wrestling theme. There are many famous wrestlers making an appearance in this game, and all of them can trigger a stacked wild on the centre reel. There is also a 2x multiplier available on this reel, which can boost your earnings hugely. There are a couple features on this game, including the Mask of Fiery Doom, where the red mask symbols are frozen whilst the rest of the symbols re-spin for a few spins.
A couple of months before Lucha Libre was released, fans of RTG slots were treated to two new releases, set to be available in time for Spring. These included Three Stooges: Brideless Groom, which is based on the classic comedy trio who have starred in a multitude of films and shows over the years and have also been rehashed once or twice. The best feature in this game is the one that gives you the chance to win free spins with every spin, regardless of how many scatter or bonus symbols you get. This is triggered like a progressive jackpot, and although it’s nowhere near as good, those free spins can earn you a lot of money on this game. In fact, there are 30+ free spins on offer, and if your luck is in then these will come with a multiplier that goes as high as 3x.
At the same time we were also informed that Smart Fortune, a popular RTG game throughout 2014 and for the early weeks of 2015, would be given a mobile release. 2015, it seems, will be the year of the mobile casino, where all developers do their best to cater for this rapidly growing crowd and to profit whilst the going is good and before that going gets great. Smart Fortune, which follows a number of pesky ants at a picnic, was one of the first productive steps in this process.
In the New Year, RTG signalled their intentions for 2015 by releasing one of their best slots to date. Known as Wild Wizards, and complete with great graphics and a very fun theme, there are as many as five features for players to enjoy. This makes it one of their most action-packed games to date, and we for one can’t wait to see more titles like this produced over the coming months.
