With most of the world on lockdown or at least partial seclusion, online slot players will be more excited than ever about the latest releases that are rolling out in May of 2020.

I’ve got four of the best new games highlighted in this blog post. Their features are as diverse as their themes. So, at least one of them should have you heading for your computer or smartphone. 

Yggdrasil has a werewolf-driven game with a wild rotating Lunar Calendar and foggy, mysterious backdrop that’s ideal for the storyline. There’s also a comic-strip designed 20-line game called Agent Destiny with oversized symbols and linked reels.

If you enjoy non-stop feature-driven gameplay, then Elk Studios aims to please with a no-payline slot. Drops lead to jumps, as the screen expands from 4,096 to 262,144 ways to win.

To round out the big four, Microgaming has released a new title in the Mega Moolah series with Absolootly Mad. It’s also a no-payline game with rolling reels and an increasing multiplier.

These games are fresh off of the virtual assembly line, so you can be one of the first to give them a spin.

Blood Moon Wilds

Twilight-mania may have died down, but werewolves, like vampires, aren’t backing out of the slot scene.

Blood Moon Wilds is a 7th of May release by Yggdrasil. Although it takes on a well-used theme, you may particularly enjoy the way that it’s presented. Not only are there five slot reels, but a sixth rotating wheel that ushers in the phases of the moon.

Power of the Moon

The Lunar Calendar rotates every time you click the spin button, and you’ll be rooting for the power of the full moon. It transfers high-value villager symbols into Werewolf Wilds. Of course, things get even crazier when there’s a Lunar Eclipse, as it’s time for some bonus action.

The 20-payline game has a top five-of-a-kind payout that’s worth 1,000 credits. But each spin gives you the potential for 2,000 times your total bet. You may even get a shortcut to big money, as Blood Mood Wilds integrates four random features into its gameplay.

The surprise features are as follows.

  • Wilds
  • Full Moon Nudges
  • Free Spins
  • Multipliers up to X5

You can enter the eerie atmosphere for as little as 0.10 or as much as 100.00. Just keep an eye out for the glowing wolves because they’re behind the magically appearing special features.

Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah

If you’re looking for a progressive jackpot slot, then you’d be absolutely mad to pass up the new installment to the Mega Moolah series.

Seven-Figure Jackpots

Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah gets you in contention for the massive prizes for which Microgaming’s millionaire-making title is known. Over £1.1 billion has already been paid to Mega Moolah jackpot winners, and it just keeps getting better.

With this version, though, you may temporarily forget about the mega jackpot as the gameplay is just too much fun.

The theme is a twist on Alice in Wonderland’s Mad Hatter, so the design and music are lighthearted and whimsical.

Rolling Reels and Multipliers

Betting of anywhere from 0.20 to 50.00 gets the five reels and “243 ways to win” in motion. But there’s more to it than just the removal of paylines. Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah is a rolling reels slot with a multiplier trail. With each win, the multiplier increases from X1 to X2, X3, and then X5. In the free spins bonus, your payouts can be increased by as much as X15.

Absolootly Mad Mega Moolah has an ideal combination of entertaining slot play and payout potential. The 5th of May release may not be everywhere as yet, but many of the top online casinos will be jumping at the chance to move it into the virtual slot banks.

Agent Destiny

Comic book meets animated action in Agent Destiny, a Play ‘n Go May 2020 slot release.

Agent Destiny takes place on a 5×3 game screen with 20 paylines set atop a black and white comic strip-like background. On the reels, the heroes and villains are circling and merge to become larger than life with the mega symbols and linked reels features.

A 6,000-Credit Five-of-a-Kind

The gameplay is fast and furious as you play for a top payout of 5,000 times your total wager. Five Wilds would set you well on your way, as they’re worth 6,000 credits on a single payline, not to mention their interconnectivity to other combinations.

Linked reels lead to a free spin. There’s also a bonus round with free games, as well as linked reels that stick around.

The betting range for Agent Destiny is 0.10 to 100.00, and that covers the 20 fixed paylines.

Black River Gold

Black River Gold is based on the 1800s Gold Rush, but its gameplay is the opposite of the premise.

Elk Studios’ May 2020 release is action-packed and has two unique features that take its avalanches and lack of paylines to a whole new level. You actually will level up every time you win, as the 4×6 game screen can elevate to eight rows when you catch a winning streak.

Symbols Drop and Rows Rise

To start, you’ll have the 4×6 board with game images that drop into place in a mining shaft. Matching symbols pay and then explode, leading to not only new symbols entering the picture but an additional row. Every new line adds to the “winning ways” count.

So, you’ll start with 4,096 ways to win, but when you get to an eight-row board, you’re looking at 262,144.

The revolver feature picks up symbols below, loading the chamber on a quest for an oversized wild. A compass is also spinning and looking for matching symbols to transform into wilds.

Quantity Is Key

You’ll find a wide betting range of 0.20 to 100.00. But unlike some of the other previously mentioned slots, Black River Gold is premised on adding up small wins to create something substantial.

You’re not going to see a single five- or six-of-a-kind with a significant cash prize attached. But the chances of claiming dozens or even hundreds of awards based on a single wager are better than average.


A werewolf, a secret agent, and the Mad Hatter walked into a 19th-century saloon… .

I don’t have a punchline, but it sounds like it has potential, doesn’t it?

The four new May 2020 slot releases are all distinct. They’re provided by four different software developers and housed in a variety of online casinos. But what they do have in common is a high level of entertainment value.

Each of the new games on the list provides players with a wide range of betting options. You can even get in on the millionaire-making prizes of Mega Moolah for as little as 0.20 per spin. They also have some custom features integrated into their gameplay.

 You can go over the top with the non-stop action of Black River Gold or Absolootly Mad, but any of the four are going to hold your attention, enticing you to keep playing.

Try one, or try all! And be sure to keep checking our slots blog for news of other latest releases and much more.
