This week has seen new games released by Quickspin, Yggdrasil, Nolimit City, Wazdan and KamaGames, alongside integration deals for the likes of IGT, iSoftBet, Pragmatic Play, ORYX, Red Rake Gaming, Playzido and more.
The latest slot from Playtech-owned Swedish slots specialist Quickspin brings Ancient Rome’s Colosseum to life in Tiger’s Glory.
Giving players a shot at ultimate adoration from the Roman crowd, the 4x5 video slot is the supplier’s most action-packed showdown yet, pitting tiger versus gladiator in a story of epic victory.
With an Enraged Tiger Free Spin bonus triggered when three or more Bonus Scatter symbols hit the reels, players follow the story of the victorious tiger as free spins are awarded whenever the tiger wins in battle.
“We are delighted to unveil our latest slot, Tiger’s Glory,” said Quickspin chief executive Daniel Lindberg. “Its immersive setting and pulsating gameplay make it one of our most engaging titles to date.
“With an exciting and rewarding free spins mode, players must battle their way to big victories in the arena of the greats.”
Yggdrasil has released its eagerly-anticipated first branded slot Nitro Circus, an adrenaline-fuelled game featuring Nitro Circus’ biggest stars, including Travis Pastrana.
The 5x4 slot includes the unique Nitro Jump, which is inspired by the infamous 15-metre Giganta Ramp seen in Nitro Circus’ live shows and allows players to choose their risk level.
The standard Nitro Jump allow players to choose their vehicle, with each vehicle having its own characteristics, benefits, and speed at which they hit the ramp. The higher the speed for the chosen jump, the bigger the chance of higher win multipliers. Although the faster you go, the greater the chance of crash landing to a minimal win.
Nitro Circus also contains a Nitro Blast minigame and Free Spins. In Nitro Blast players can win Wilds, Free Spins, Multipliers or fill their vehicle collections, while Free Spins allows players to win feature picks and symbols, leading to huge win potential.
“As our first ever branded game, the launch of Nitro Circus slot is a milestone for Yggdrasil,” said Yggdrasil head of slots Jonas Strandman. “Working with the Nitro Circus team has been an absolute blast and the outcome is a great game giving players the chance to share the rush of being present during the Nitro Circus shows.
“We’re delighted by our partnership with Nitro Circus and the result and look forward to the game being a massive hit for all our operator partners.”

Available globally across both iOS and Android platforms, Teen Patti is a social card game that originated in India and is played with up to four players, with each being dealt three cards face down.

Wazdan has launched its latest slot Black Hawk Deluxe, a sequel to its popular Black Hawk title.
