    OK!!! Drum Roll................

    I have collated the results of the unofficial CM poll thread for 'New Slot Of The Year 2016'!!

    Remember 5 votes were allowed in order of preference scoring 5 points for a first down to 1 for a fifth. The games all went live between November 30 2015 - November 30 2016.

    Luckily for Microcloning 'Tarzan' didn't go live until December...

    Each game has its total score listed and the collection of individual votes next to it.

    GRAND WINNER!!!!
    Book Of Dead - Play N Go 45435155433424454444423534
    SCORE 98 (second most number of first preferences at 5 plus most individual votes)

    2nd. Drive Multiplier Mayhem - Notentertainment 445334145423135515544
    SCORE 75 (equal most number of first prefences at 6 and second most individual votes)

    3rd. Warlords Crystals Of Power - Notentertainment 315555423335224
    SCORE 52 (equal most number of first prefences at 6 and third most individual votes)

    5th= Second Strike - Quickspin 155133423 SCORE 27

    Egyptian Rise - Nextgen SCORE 0
    Big Blox - Yggdrasil SCORE 0
    Karaoke Party - Microcloning SCORE 0
    Great 88 - Betsoft SCORE 0


    MY VIEW:
    Netent clearly win as a general developer and pound-for-pound Microcloning are by far the worst. I must say it'd piss both Netent (always coming up with innovations) and Novomatic off when they see a clear copy of an old game has won, Bitch Child and the Book Of Death!

    A travesty in some ways, but it's our collective choice; that's democracy - ask Donald Trump!

    Poltava is by Elk Studios, not Riggdrasil.

    Also Titanic is technically by Bally, not WMS. They release games under SG Interactive but it's not made by WMS/SG.

    Was surprised to see Family Guy down there in the doldrums, I thought they'd made quite good use of the license and it's fairly entertaining to boot. Assuming you're a fan of the show that is :oops:

    Also interesting to see how Guns N Roses succeeded where Motorhead did not, something for NE to figure out.

    I notice the love for Book of Dead amongst players so I may have to actually try it out for myself one of these days :cool:

    I think it's due to exposure as every casino has Netent and WMS etc. nowadays and IGT are limited to certain sites hence their lack of take-up therefore player experience. BoD is simply a copy of BoRe which is annoying to purists like me. Family Guy is a good game I agree. Wolf Heart got no votes but is quite good too. It's refreshing to see the Microcloning con-trick has been exposed and none in the top 10! To get that in perspective they have massive exposure in multiplatform sites and yet performed abysmally in the poll, getting lower votes than some developers that have very limited casino offering.

    Still can't believe Red Raping Hood is on the list at all :eek:

    I tried it again last night - about 400-500 spins of utter, utter DROSS!
    It even gave the Farty GrimeMonster feature where it turned FOUR of the symbols into wilds - and I won €0.
    ... but don't worry - there's a re-spin! ... which gave me €0! :sob:

    Can someone PLEASE show me some screenshots where you actually managed to squeeze a big win out of this?
    (And I mean over x100 - not a NetEnt Super-Mega-Galactic Win of bet x35...)

    Microgaming have not taken the news well at all I heard, so in response to this poll have assembled their best people to formulate a response, a slot so original it will change all our minds & hearts.

    It'll be called ThunderBlonde :(:eek:

    Yeah, you said that in the poll thread. Trouble is Germany doesn't have many of these licensed online just mainly Bally (Wulff) Merkur and Novolines along with a few others. One day maybe Europe will see the day when nearly all software can be easily played in all nations. Who knows?

    Erm, no i didnt. :D Actually i wrote nothing in the poll thread as far as i remember. :confused:

    And we can play Netent, MG, PlaynGo, Thunderkick, Yggdrasil, Elk, BTG... and some others over here. :)


    I tried most of the games but not one of them was good enough to become one of my regular games.

    Interesting poll Dunover. The BoD slot (1st) and Warlords (3rd) on that list are the only 2 I would play regularly and even then I would play Book Of Ra over BoD if the option was there. Overall, is it me or has it been a fairly poor year for new slots? Granted there has been some innovative ideas and nice designs but nothing that has made me yearn to play.


    That would be a good theme for the next poll: the "Games You Play Most Regularly" top 5 to see which games are played most regularly here. Subtly different from a "Best Slots" poll IMO.

    You're correct! It was another German-based player I had you confused with, Goa. Apologies.

    I have to agree with this I feel 2016 has been an awful year for new ideas and slots which could be called 'totally new'

    MicroCloning apart, I seems that 2016 has also been the year of the copycat, couple of quick examples Book of Dead from play N Go and also Playtakes Raging Rhino rip off (hope WMS charged them a fortune for allowing that one!)

    A most played poll would also be an excellent idea and I'd be very interested in those results. Would have to say in the OP tho "Excluding DOA......" :p

    Yes, it was only a poll of this year's releases to gauge people's views on developers and what formats were popular. I have come across several more clones of BoRe in addition to BoD from other minor new developers - it's cloned even more than St*rb*rst. Actually above both those models are 5 or 6-reel multiways like Rhino, BB, Thunderhorn, Silver Lion, Jaguar Mist and Buffalo with the centre-reels multiplying cumulative Wilds. So It seems that (further evidence is the popularity of Drive MM with the cumulative wilds) those 3 models have the most endearing and popular appeal to players.

    Cumulative multiplying Wilds.

    Interesting information. Can I choose the slots and hope to win the game if I'll choose a slot from this list? )))

    Have to disagree Jon...It's such good value for money (regular hits keep you going)...10p to win a possible £100 and you only need 5 diamonds one way to do so. In fact it's technically possible with 4 diamonds if there are enough diamonds/wilds already on the reels.

    I've had full screen of 7s which paid out a nice £100 on 50p bet too...Still chasing the 5 diamonds but I will get it eventually. Whereas with twin spin all of the diamonds....Will never ever happen.

    I doubt it, especially as WMS themselves ripped their idea from Aristocrat's Fubbalo :D
