Best Mobile Casino Games

Finding the next top phone casino game can be difficult with so many options available. Nowadays, the best mobile casinos all have over 400 games to choose from, so a newcomer must be a big hit to make any kind of impact.

If a game developer gets the gameplay, graphics, RTP, and jackpot sizes just right, a new release can catch the attention of the online casino community.

And by 2022, a slew of top-tier online slots and other casino games will have hit the market.

Of course, the year isn’t over yet and there are some big developments planned for the autumn and towards Christmas. But for now, here are the three best casino games launched in 2022…

Best Mobile Games 2022

Before we look at the three games, it’s worth remembering that these will be available on most casino apps in the UK. However, it’s always worth checking that the casinos feature your preferred games – whether that’s slots, roulette, poker or anything else – before signing up!

We’ve scoured the internet for the latest casino game releases – and these are the top three…

Fortunate Buddha

Fortunate Buddha slots offers extensive win opportunities

1. Fortunate Buddha (April 2022) – RTG

Real Time Gaming can always be trusted to provide the next level of online slot machines. And the April 2022 release of Fortunate Buddha is no different!

This is a medium volatile slot machine with 50 fixed paylines, so there are no nasty surprises when you play here! The volatility is purposefully set in the middle to attract both new players and high rollers.

With a Fortune Link Feature, various respin options and five different jackpots (mini, minor, major, grand, super grand), it’s no wonder Fortunate Buddha has gotten people talking.

Legend of the Golden Monkey

Revamped and remastered, Legend of the Golden Monkey is a top slot for 2022

2. Legend of the Golden Monkey (May 2022) – Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil like to get literary with their casino games and Legend of the Golden Monkey is yet another example of bringing ancient myths to life. This game is based on the Sun Wukong’s 16th century Chinese novel Journey to the West, about the monk Xuanzang’s quest to acquire Buddhist sacred texts. We told you it was literary!

Anyway, Legend of the Golden Monkey is a pretty easy game to play and features a low-to-medium volatility. It is actually an ideal starting point for new casino players, as paylines pay all ways and there is a 96% RTP.

The game has been around for longer than this year but was recently renamed and remastered, and added to a wealth of new casinos. It’s a valued addition to many casino sites and one to watch out for.

Slingo Super Spin

There aren’t many Slingo games that come close to bonuses like Slingo Super Spin!

3. Slingo Super Spin! (February 2022) – Slingo

Slingo returned in February with a new variant of its remarkable game: Slingo Super Spin! Slingo games are a mix of slots and online bingo, and require players to choose where the check off numbers of a bingo grid. You only get a limited number of turns per spin, and games can be played for as little as 10p.

What’s different about Slingo Super Spin! is you get a new sixth reel that gives you the chance to match any number across the grid. Wild DJ’s help boost your choices, while prizes begin from the fourth line up.

What’s more, Gold Disc Super Wilds and Free Spins are available in this game, making it one of the best Slingo games we’ve seen.
