This week has seen new games rolled out by Red Tiger Gaming, Greentube, Lightning Box, OneTouch, BeeFee Games, Habanero, BetConstruct, Nolimit City and Genius Tech Group, with integrations for Realistic Games, Play’n GO, Patagonia Entertainment, WeAreCasino, and 1x2Network.
Red Tiger Gaming’s Thor’s Lightning
Red Tiger Gaming has launched its latest slot release, Thor’s Lightning.
The 7x7 title, set in the frozen wastes of Norse mythology, debuts with operator Betsson before being distributed across the network on 14 February 14.
It is Red Tiger’s first portrait-first slot, which the supplier said would allow for an enhanced player experience on mobile devices.
The game features nine locked tiles in the middle of the reels, which must be broken as players aim to unleash Valhalla or Muspell Free Spins.
If Valhalla Spins are activated, Golden Shields take the place of the locked tiles, and each shield reveals a stake multiplier. Muspell Spins, set in the Nordic land of fire, features two bonus modes, including Lava Showers, which destroy one or more types of symbol on the reels, or Lava Flow, which creates identical symbols on connected reels.
“Thor’s Lightning is one of the most inventive, immersive titles in our portfolio,” said Red Tiger Gaming director of business development Carl Ejlertsson. “With its exciting features, and an eye-catching setting that takes players on an engaging journey, it is set to be one of the headliners of our offering.
“We’ve made a real commitment to producing top-tier, mobile games, and Thor’s Lightning is no exception. It is our debut portrait-first slot game, and the great gameplay is possible due to the cutting-edge technology used in developing our content.”
Greentube’s Tidal Riches
Greentube has expanded its portfolio with the launch of its latest slot Tidal Riches.
The 20-line, 5-reel slot offers players the possibility to play on up to 50 lines and 6 reels, with the underwater action prolonged even further by activating the slot’s extra features.
The aim of Tidal Riches in the main game is to line up 5 identical symbols next to each other from left to right across 20 win lines. The Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols. Additional win lines are added with every winning combination until a maximum of 50 win lines are active.
Each win lights up an arrow on the Arrow Trail, increasing the active playing field. Collecting 4 arrows triggers 5 Free Games with Treasure Chest Symbols that improve winning chances, and a new Arrow Trail begins. Lighting up 4, 5, 6 or 7 arrows awards the player 4, 6, 8 or 10 additional Free Games.
Lightning Box’s Chicken Fox
Lightning Box has launched its latest slot title Chicken Fox with Kindred Group’s Unibet brand.
The 3x5 reel slot, staged inside a cash-strewn hen house, features every farmer’s worst nightmare, a fox among the fowl. Members of the yard fill the reels, from a wise old goat to the apple-pie cooking farmer’s wife.
The new game is now live on an exclusive basis with Unibet, before general European release across the supplier’s network of operator partners on 20 February.
“We’re thrilled to release our latest title, Chicken Fox, which should cause a bit of a flap,” said Lightning Box CEO and co-founder Peter Causley. “Its comically dark theme will have players chasing chickens up and down the reels.
“It’s fun features and easy gameplay are what they have come to expect from Lightning Box, and we’re eager to hear their feedback from our latest creation.”
Chicken Fox’s bonus feature is based on a fox catching chickens that can award up to 66x per symbol. The fox can also catch eggs that can add further free games, causing massive wins.
“We’re very excited about getting our hands on Chicken Fox first and hope it will be a great performer for us like the rest of Lightning Box’s portfolio,” said Unibet head of casino David Robertson.
Realistic Games / BGO
Realistic Games has signed a deal to launch its slots content with BGO’s online casino brands.

“BGO has established a strong network of players and we are really looking forward to them being able to benefit from our slot content,” said Realistic Games commercial director Robert Lee. “Our games continue to perform across all verticals and I’m confident that BGO’s players will experience the same enjoyment now that our games are live.”
BGO product director Andy Dymock said: “Realistic’s slots are extremely popular and have proven to be among the best on the market and it’s fantastic to be able to offer them to our customers.
“They have added another dimension to our already diverse portfolio of slots and we are pleased to promote them across our BGO, Powerspins, and Vegas Luck brands.”
BF Games’ Bonnie & Clyde
BeeFee Games is inviting players to go on the run with legendary outlaws Bonnie & Clyde with the release of its latest slot.
Bonnie & Clyde is a 5-reel, 3-row video slot with 20 pay lines and is packed with special features, engaging sound, and vivid animations that include a subtle change from day to night as players go deeper into the game.
Along the way, players will encounter heart scatter symbols that trigger up to 30 free spins while hitting guns and jukeboxes can multiply a bet up to 50 times. Bonnie & Clyde symbols expanding on the reel offer some of the biggest wins.
“I am very proud of what we have achieved so far,” said Piotr Szpoton, CEO of BeeFee. “Our development and art teams have worked hard to develop excellent and high-quality games.
“Bonnie & Clyde is an outstanding example of our new product line and this year will be filled with some remarkable game releases still to come.”

OneTouch has expanded it games portfolio with the release of new slot Fortune Miner.
The 3x3 slot features 27 ways to win, and sees players mine their way through underground tunnels in search of gems, dynamite wilds, bonus rounds and royals.
Fortune Miner features a randomly triggered re-spin, which kicks in when all the royals are removed, and the rest of the symbols collapse down to fill the empty spots.
“Fortune Miner is the latest in our ever-growing portfolio of offerings and we are thrilled with how it has turned out,” said Matthew Rochman, head of OneTouch. “Our aim is to create engaging and entertaining content while still retaining the classic elements of a slots game and we have done exactly that. We are sure players are going to love it.”
Nolimit City’s Fruits
Nolimit City has released its first slot game of the year with the launch of Fruits.
The game has 116 fixed lines and a 22-33-33 reel area, and features a random Sticky Fruit Respin feature in the base game that gives the opportunity to pack a screen full of players’ favourite fruit, with the Mystery Wrapper feature appearing on occasion to award a potentially huge payline win.
The Lightning Rounds feature also includes a bonus round that allows players to increase Multiplier bet beyond 350x.
Fruits is the first of several titles to be released throughout the year by Nolimit City, which aims to release one game per month this year.

Genius Tech Group / DraftKings
Genius Tech Group (GTG) has partnered with DraftKings to launch its American football-themed Squares game ahead of this weekend’s Super Bowl LIII.
The free-to-play game has been rolled out on DraftKings’ fantasy and sportsbook platforms, and is based on the Squares game concept familiar to American football parties with contestants not requiring any betting knowledge to participate.
Contestants pick squares from a grid randomly numbered from 0-9 whereby the numbers relate to the last digit of the score for each team at the end of each quarter. If the numbers of a cell match the final digit of a team’s score at the end of a quarter, that is the winning square.
GTG has been working with the DraftKings sportsbook since August when the operator began offering GTG’s flagship iSport Genius data product.
“We are very pleased to have secured another deal with DraftKings,” said Genius Tech Group co-founder and partner Nathan Rothschild. “We have already built a successful relationship through our iSport Genius product, and this is a further investment in our partnership.
“DraftKings is a truly innovative group and they understand the potential of our free-to-play games to deliver mass acquisition.”
