New Casino Game Releases

1717 Caribbean Pirates Slot: Edict. RTP 96.14%.

Ready to up the ante and cash in on pirate treasures? Then 1717 Caribbean Pirates from Edict should be the next title you chose to spin. Set on 5x3 reels, with 40 paylines and a busy, shop-lined background, this slot is set in a tropical pirate port town and is packed with a booty (max prizes 2000x your stake).

1717 Caribbean Pirates Slot

The theme celebrates the golden age of piracy (in 1717, all pirates were offered a pardon by King George I of Great Britain, with any pirate who refused to surrender considered fair game from 1718. This was the era of the infamous Blackbeard, who ruled the Caribean pirate scene from 1716-18). Players can start spinning from just 10 cents and enjoy wilds, scatters, and 4 treasure chest bonus.

Each bonus round takes place in a different Caribbean location and comes with different bonuses: Havanna (3-5 duels), Tortuga (10 free spins with sticky wilds), the Cayman Islands (14 spins with extra wilds and up to 25x multipliers), and lastly, Crooked Islands (spin with extra wilds and expanding wilds)! Don’t miss out; take 1717 Caribbean Pirates for a spin at Party Casino today!

Chicken Fox 5x Skillstar: Lightning Box. RTP 95.61%.

Chicken Fox 5x Skillstar Slot is a cheeky and fun-filled new release from Lightning Box. Set on 5x3 reels, it has 20 paylines and costs just 25 cents to spin with whopping max payouts of 18,950x your bet.

Providing a retro and arcade ambiance, this game is set on a farmyard and the main character- Mr Fox, is terrorizing a chicken coup that contains (you've guessed it) golden eggs and jewels.

The main bonuses are provided through the use of wilds, multiplier wilds, scatters, and free spins (with extra bonus symbols). Plus, there's the skillstar bonus game, where you'll embody the Fox and find golden eggs without dropping them for some killer payouts.

Ready to take it for a spin and see if you can collect golden eggs and fox multiplier to hit the highest payouts? Then check out Casino Cabbie’s top recommended Lightning Box Casinos!

Pirates 2 Mutiny: Yggdrasil. RTP 96.2%.

Rather unusually, this is the second pirate-themed slot launching this week, but this time it's engineered by Yggdrasil and comes with a slightly higher RTP. Following hot on Yggdrasil's March release of Pirates Smugglers Paradise, Pirates 2 Mutiny is the follow-up.

Action-packed, and promising wins with dropdown cluster pays, free spins, multipliers, and 3 bonus features: Mutiny, Cannon Blast and Tsunami!, this slot is guaranteed to have you glued to the screen as you walk the plant to winning opportunities!

With bets starting from $0.20-100, wins are formed in clusters of 6+ matching symbols for max payouts of 4,900x your bet, and with each winning spin, the dropdown reels eliminate all non-winning symbols to give you a second chance spin: this continues till no new symbols are added to your cluster- meaning a single spin offers multiple ways to win. At the same time, bonus features keep the action tense as tsunamis rearrange the reels and award multipliers, cannon blasts remove low paying symbols, and the mutiny feature awards extra high-paying symbols! And that’s not to mention the epic Pirates 2 Mutiny free spins!

Ready to start spinning? We certainly are! Check out Pirates 2 Mutiny Slot at Party Casino!
