The great thing about online slots is that there’s never a dull moment because developers are always bringing out new titles to keep you entertained. Every month, there’s something different, always more innovative and potentially more rewarding than before. 2022 looks set to be a great year for fans of these simple, entertaining online casino games, with forthcoming new content already announced. Let’s take a look at some of the titles that’ll be lighting up gamers’ screens next year.

Adventures of Captain Blackjack

Pirate themes feature in many online slots, and you can look forward to another one next year. Adventures of Captain Blackjack transports you to the high seas, where you can follow the adventures of a jolly gang of pirates led by a glamorous female pirate: Captain Blackjack herself! You’ll see a 5×3 grid with 20 active lines where you can potentially claim a 5,000x Mega Jackpot, which pays out $250,000 on a max bet of $50.

Volatility is expected to be high, with an RTP of up to 96.18%. Special features include a Kraken Wheel, Treasure Map wilds and free spins. It’s going to be a whole bunch of fun! Whet your appetite in advance on other pirate-themed slots at BetMGM, such as Captain’s Treasure and Rage of the Seas.

Jurassic Park Gold

The original Jurassic Park slot has been out for seven years, and it’s established a reputation as one of the best online slots. Now it’s getting an upgrade with Jurassic Park Gold. Think dinosaur mayhem combined with jackpot slots! You can expect the best of the original graphics combined with more modern features such as the Wildstorm and Link & Win respins, along with free spins, multipliers, and stacked Logo wilds. The action unreels on a 5×4 grid with 40 active paylines. The Wildstorm mechanic can unlock a feature that transforms up to five reels into full wilds, while Link & Win can reward you with 8,000x your stake if you succeed in claiming the Mega Jackpot.

If you don’t feel like waiting for this title, you can get in on the dinosaur action already with Double Dinosaur Deluxe here at BetMGM.

The Bandit and the Baron

It seems that players just can’t get enough of online slot machines with a Wild West theme. Maybe it’s because those frontier folk loved to play casino games. In any case, a Wild West slot to look out for next year is The Bandit and the Baron. Basically, it’s a duel between the Baron and the Bandit as they compete for cash on the reels; it’s a highly volatile game — just like the tempers of the old-time gunslingers. Twenty-five lines on a 5×5 grid with expanding wilds and Bandit Respins set you up with the potential to win up to 10,000x your stake. If you want to get some target practice in, set your saddle with Wild West slots such as The Wild 3, Bounty Raid, Dead or Alive, and Wild Wild West – all here at BetMGM.

Crabbin’ Crazy

Funny cartoon-style graphics and a great variety of fun features are what you can expect from Crabbin’ Crazy, the online casino slot with the crab-catching theme. Twenty-five paylines on a 5×3 grid add up to the potential to win 1,585x your stake under the right circumstances. Stacked wilds form the top-paying combinations, while scatters, free spins and Hold & Win respins all add to the fun. Be prepared for the Pick a Crab random feature – it can pop up any time with the chance to choose between three crabs. These cartoon crustaceans have the ability to award you with 2+ guaranteed stacked wilds, mystery symbols and extra bonus symbols. Then there’s the Let’s Go Crabbin’ Hold & Win-style feature, which gives you the chance to catch even more crabs.

If that sounds like a mouthwatering menu of entertainment, why not play Lucky Larry’s Lobstermania 2 for an entree? It’s here at BetMGM.

Power of Gods: Medusa

Ancient mythology is an extremely popular genre of online casino slots, and it doesn’t get more ancient or mythological than Power of Gods: Medusa. This high-quality slot has 10 paylines on a 5×3 grid and an all-star cast of the Greek deities Poseidon, Achilles, and Athena, as well as the snake-haired young lady whose gaze turns men to stone: Medusa herself. The main bonus feature is called Hold the Jackpot, and it triggers three re-spins (to begin with) if you land six or more bonus symbols at once. It’ll be interesting to compare this game with the Medusa slot already available at BetMGM. If you want more chances to play slots online with Greek gods, try Parthenon: Quest for Immortality.

Amazing Link: Riches

A top competitor for the most popular slot genre is the theme of Irish luck, which you’ll be able to experience in a new way when the Amazing Link: Riches slot comes out in 2022. Transport yourself to a vision of beautiful Ireland where toadstools, beer, top hats, wishing wells, pots of gold, coins and four-leaf clover wilds populate the reels on a 5×3 grid with 18 paylines.

Features include stacked wilds, scatters, and Amazing Link respins, as well as a random Jackpot pick. This feature, which can pop up at any time, gives you the chance to win one of four fixed jackpots if you can pick three coins of the same type. The Mega jackpot (the biggest one) pays out 5,000x your stake if you’re lucky enough to get it. If you’d like a taste of the best of the Irish before next year, Shamrock Spin, Irish Magic and Lucky Irish Charms are currently available to play at BetMGM.

Cat Clans

Many of the best online slots feature battles and treasures in a medieval world. Cat Clans picks up on that theme, but with a twist: The soldiers, magicians and kings are all cats! It’s an all-out war as the cat clans compete for control of the castle and the treasure it contains.

A 5×3 grid with 20 paylines offers you chances to win up to 20,000x the stake, thanks to multiplier wilds, free spins and the Clan Battle bonus game. To trigger this special feature, you have to collect Paw Prints from specific symbols. Then, you’re rewarded with five spins with different cat symbols that each award you with a special prize. It all adds up to heaps of feline fun. For more of the same, try BetMGM’s zany cat-themed slot: Cat to the Future.
