All the latest news from the casino industry in the UK delivered by The Slot Buzz reporting team. We cover the latest new site launches, game releases, and promotions, big winners and jackpot payouts, alongside industry news and regulatory changes that impact the UK slot player.
TheSlotBuzz Newsletter – March 2018
March 2018 will see new slot releases from NetEnt, Yggdrasil, Play n Go, Thunderkick, Microgaming and Quickspin.
Here at TheSlotBuzz we are particularly excited about Play n Go’s Imperial Opera which is set for release on 7th March. This 5-reel, 20 payline game has a medium to high variance and comes with twin reels, wild reels, mega symbols AND a free spins round with 10 spins and unlimited re-triggers. It’s our pick of the month’s releases!
Elsewhere, Thunderkick have re-vamped an old favourite (?!) called Bork the Beserker – this time it’s got a new moniker – ‘the Hack n Slash edition’. It comes with a very nice 97.3% RTP, a high variance and 20 free spins with wild reels. It’s a bonkers theme as we have come to expect from Thunderkick. You can read more in our review, and play at any of our recommended Thunderkick casinos from the second week of March.
We’ve also previewed the next Quickspin release, Volcano Riches. This one follows hot on the heels of the superb Pied Piper, and features typically slick graphics and gameplay, and of course, lots of wilds, plus wins of up to 1,254x with each spin. There’s also a pays-both-ways free spins round to enjoy.
And NetEnt fans can look forward to the release of Hotline™, an 80s-themed video slot set in a Florida reminiscent of TV cop show, Miami Vice. It comes with sticky expanding wilds and the opportunity to increase the RTP by upping your bet with each spin.
And last, but not least for new releases, in the first week of March the new Microgaming slot release is Playboy™ Gold, built by Triple Edge Studios under the MG license. This follow up to the original Playboy™ slot from 2013 has a bumper 100 paylines and comes packed with features. It’s a real crowd-pleaser!
Elsewhere at TheSlotBuzz we’re excited to bring you new up-to-date reviews of some of the UK’s most exciting slot sites, including Casumo, Super Lenny and MT Secure Trade’s latest casino, High Roller. The latter is an immersive experience where the player gets to travel through the exciting world of Metrocity, picking up extra spins, level-ups and bonuses along the way.
We’ve also added to our Banking guides. So if you’re looking for a new payment method to fund your account, check out our profile of Paysafecard, a popular choice for casino players in the UK that allows you to play with cash – no credit or debit card required!
Finally, if you’re a fan of Rizk and associated MT Secure Trade Casinos, then check out our Rizk Sister Sites page where we give you the lowdown on where you can find similar sites to Rizk with the same great game catalogue, fast payouts and excellent service.

Fair Play and Responsible Gaming
Licensing and regulation was a hot topic in 2017 as the UK Gambling Commission turned the heat up on operators to ensure fairness and transparency in advertising, and better management of vulnerable customers. Fair Play has never been a more relevant topic. Our guides at TheSlotBuzz cover all aspects of Player Protection and Responsible Gambling.
Under UK law online casinos must offer the correct tools to customers to allows them to manage their gambling. Learn about spend limits, time-outs and self-excludes on our Fair Play pages. And find information to help with problem gambling here too.

Slot Software Suppliers – Profiles And Games Listings With RTP, Variance and Features
At TheSlotBuzz you can find the slot games you like, play them for free and then for real at one of our recommended slot sites. There are many different software suppliers creating games for the UK, and each has their own style and game type. That’s why we profile each studio and list their games separately so that you can easily browse to find one you like.
With each game review you will find a profile showing the variance, Return to Player (RTP), number of paylines, reels and rows, and stake range.
If you like games with a quirky theme and really interesting graphics then you should check out Thunderkick Slots. This Swedish game supplier have created more than 20 titles in the last 4 years, ranging from low variance with high RTP – 1429 Unchartered Seas – to high variance games with super-charged bonus rounds – Flame Busters and Pink Elephants. In between there is a catalogue of top quality slots with some of the craziest themes around. If you haven’t already tried them, we recommend Birds on a Wire, Fruit Warp, and Esqueleto Explosivo! They are all available to play for free here. For 2018, Thunderkick’s first release is another high variance title called The Falcon Huntress which is already a big favourite amongst slot players. And this summer Thunderkick are lining up the release of their first Progressive Jackpot title which is something to look forward to. To find out where you can play all these games, make sure you go to our list of Recommended Thunderkick Slot Sites.
Elsewhere, make sure you don’t miss out on Big Time Gaming Slots. BTG are fast becoming the go-to supplier for anyone looking for a truly thrilling high variance experience. Two of their three releases for 2017 were voted the best slots of the year by the Casinomeister forum – White Rabbit and Bonanza. Play these two slots and it’s not hard to see why. They both use the BTG Megaways™ game engine, creating 117,649 ways to win across reels that expand and recede with every spin. Games like these, and the earlier Starquest and Dragon Born are loved and hated in equal measure because their bonus rounds (where all the big wins lie) are notoriously hard to unlock. But when the payouts come, they can be huge! Check out where you can play these, and more titles like them, in our list of Big Time Gaming Slot Sites.
Here at TheSlotBuzz we are reviewing new games and suppliers every week, so make sure you keep coming back to find out more.
A Guide to Virtual Reality Slot Games
It’s looking like 2018 could be a big year for VR slot machines in the UK. At ICE Totally Gaming in London in February software giant NetEnt previewed their first real-money VR slot, Gonzo’s Quest VR. It is a totally immersive game and it’s roll out in June 2018 promises to be one of the highlights of the summer.
Elsewhere we have already seen the exciting Sugar Rush VR from Pragmatic Play and SlotsMillion – available for players with a Google Cardboard Headset. Whilst there is still a long way to go before VR fans get to experience a full suite of immersive slot titles at their favourite casino, these signs are encouraging.
