2020 has been another busy year in the slots industry and the new releases here in the UK have come thick and fast. As with most new releases there is usually a buzz around them for a while at least.
The test for any slot though, is whether it has longevity and this is the difference between a classic slot and an also ran. There are plenty of slots that stand the test of time and become part of the furniture at casinos, but many disappear after the predictable interest that something new creates. It’s always hard to judge how the public will react to slots at Slots Baby, but an instant classic could be hiding and waiting to be discovered within the current crop of new slots releases.
Van Helsing’s Book Of The Undead Slot
A new addition to the book slots is Van Helsing’s Book Of The Undead by 1×2 gaming. From the title, the stars of this slot are the book and Van Helsing himself. The setting for this slot is Transylvania and the reels are inhabited by vampires, crossbows, holy water and of course, the book and Van Helsing and they are the most valuable of all the symbols. The slot boasts an RTP score of 95.8% and the volatility is medium.
