December in NetEnt’s roadmap looks very unusual. In general, Netent release a brand new game around the 3rd/4th week of each month, but in December they’ve announced they’ll be releasing some kind of Christmas edition version of existing games: Flowers + Fruit Shop. Even more unusually, they’ll be launched on December 1st. This begs the question: will any new game come in December?
Guns N Roses Slot Update
It’s unusual for them to have a month without releasing a brand new game, but also is it unusual for them to update an older slot with a Christmas edition, so I’m super exicted to see that. Could it be that the elusive Guns N Roses branded slot will come as a surprise Christmas treat this year? Since it was first unveiled back at LAC in January with some cool footage, we’ve hardly heard anything from it and still have no indication of when it’ll be hitting casinos.
December 1st Christmas Editions
Each Christmas when casinos run fun campaigns and free spins promotions on Christmassy slots, I always feel like it’s a huge gap in their portfolio that NetEnt don’t have any specialised Christmas games. I guess they felt the same way too and it seems, from their roadmap, that they’ll be releasing two old favourites as a Christmas edition.
Flowers Slot Christmas Version
We don’t have any extra details yet apart from the image in this post which only tells us we can expect snow, snow and more snow!
Fruit Shop Slot Christmas Version
It’s hard to say whether these Christmas edition slots will just have some added Christmas touches like snow and the odd Christmas tree, or whether the game will be enhanced too. I’d love it if they added in some wintery themed new features too. Maybe a ‘Christmas Gift’ wild or a Snow Flurry feature, where snowflakes whirl onto the reels to turn symbols Wild (should I patent that idea?!).
Whatever happens, I’ll be super happy to finally have a properly Christmas themed slot from my favourite online casino game provider, to help me get in the Christmas spirit once December arrives!
