The next title on the list will see Gold Coin Studios stir up some super serums on January 13 in Dr. Wildshock: Mad Loot Lab

Incorporating Rolling Reels, multiplier trails, exploding wilds, any adjacent pays and charged free spins, the doctor’s loot lab contains his secret invention, the Shock Meter, which is powered by wild symbols collected from winning combinations.

During free spins, Flynn symbols also get collected to progress players across the multiplier trail, where additional free spins and multipliers of up to x10 are up for grabs.

Concluding the month is Northern Lights Gaming’s 5 Star Knockout on January 27, a retro-themed knockout slot game packed with features and exciting game play.
