Take a Stroll Back in Time
There’s something undeniably magnetic about a video slot steeped in antiquity. Games based on ancient civilisations - be them Egyptians, Greeks, Mesoamerican, Roman or others - remain some of the most popular at Wheelz, and were responsible for the biggest scores dished out in July.
Reinforcing that point, almost a quarter of a million euros made its way to one lucky player located in Finland on the 20th day of the month spinning Gates of Olympus - the biggest win we’ve seen for many weeks (€249,060).
Pragmatic Play’s highly engrossing 6x5 title beckons players to enter the realm of Zeus - the god of thunder and sky according to ancient Greek religion. Once inside Olympus, you can take advantage of several bonus features like cascading reels and abundant Free Spins in the pursuit of heavenly riches.
Another player based in Finland found the time to soak up some more antiquity-driven gaming last month, hitting the reels of Play’n GO’s Legacy of Dead multiple times to sensational effect. Their reward? €110,025 in total, spread across three separate sessions all coming on different days of the month. The wins were worth €44,955, €35,580 and €29,490, to be precise - capping a hugely profitable 30 days at the Wheelz reels for Finnish slot spinners.
The spin-off to Play’n GO’s insanely popular smash hit Book of Dead, Legacy of Dead comes with the customary expanding symbols during Free Spins, evoking the magic of Ancient Egypt in a similar fashion to its predecessor and providing plenty of atmosphere along with immersive gameplay.
Speaking of Book of Dead, the fifth richest win of the month came via Play’n GO’s iconic release. €25,638 was banked by one Wheelz player spinning Book of Dead on July 19, aided in no small part by the slot’s aforementioned Free Spins round. The feature is triggered in the usual fashion - that is, by landing three scatters during a spin, with one special symbol randomly selected prior to the round to act as the expanding symbol. Whenever this symbol appears in Free Spins, it’ll expand to cover the whole reels on which it lands, and is capable of throwing up scores as high as 5,000x your bet.
Have a Spin in Sin City
Leading game provider Relax Gaming are represented by one of their newer releases. Dropping just last month, Chip Spin is a typically polished production that takes players to Sin City - Las Vegas, where they get to know a set of shady looking characters across the game’s 5x5 grid area. Chip Spin is powered by an innovative Connected Ways Pays engine similar to Cluster Pays, requiring wins to line up from reel #1. The Free Spins round in Chip Spin has shades of Money Train’s epic hold-and-win feature, but this version isn’t quite as profitable. Still, the slot served up a tasty €25,000 win on July 10 - the same amount paid out by Fruit Party just a day prior, incidentally.
The creation of Pragmatic Play, this is a light-hearted, fun party everyone is invited to, full of sweet-tasting fruits and a basket of bonus extras. Players benefit from abundant Free Spins and winning symbols carrying 2x or 4x multipliers at random in Fruit Party.
Elsewhere, the best of the rest is made up of Fire In The Hole xBomb, Nolimit City’s explosive mining slot (€19,607), Wild West Gold from Pragmatic Play (€24,108) and finally, a release from one of our newest game providers. Merkur Gaming signed with Wheelz in the past couple of months, and made their Big Win debut in July courtesy of the action-packed slot Knight’s Life which whisks players back to Medieval Britain (€17,310) to battle for honour and forgotten riches.

All Roads Lead to Vegas
The €25,000 win documented above in Relax Gaming’s Chip Spin earned the game top spot over in the Multiplier stakes, some distance ahead of second place, but the rest of the table has quite a different complexion altogether.
Industry giant NetEnt, recently bought out by fellow content creator Evolution, make their maiden appearance of the month with one of the most popular games of all time, arguably representing NetEnt’s finest hour.
Boasting a max payout worth an eye-watering 111,111x your bet, Dead or Alive 2 invites players back out to the Wild West to begin their gun-slinging adventure. Besides its epic soundtrack and great visuals, the game stands out predominantly for its exhilarating Free Spins round that can produce moments of pure ecstasy when Lady Luck is shining down. Triggered after catching three scatters during a spin, look to lock in an elusive ‘Wild Line’ that spells the richest rewards, remaining in place for the duration of the feature.
Jammin’ Jars 2 Returns
Few will be surprised to find a pair of entries from Push Gaming’s recent follow-up to their disco slot sensation on our report. It might not have booked an appearance on the Big Win table, but Jammin’ Jars 2 made up for that absence by paying out wins equivalent to 9,243x and 9,023x on July 16th and 5th, respectively.
Whether you’re a fan of the original or new to the slot scene, give Jammin’ Jars 2 a spin to enjoy more highly entertaining play, with the addition of some exciting new features taking the Jammin’ Jars experience to new heights.
Push Gaming are certainly no stranger to our Big Win report, and indeed the studio is also represented by a mysterious video slot that borrows from disparate ancient civilisations.
We’re talking about their multi-layered intriguing slot, Mystery Museum. Take a walk around this museum if the idea of Power Gamble, Mystery Stacks and Free Spins features, plus the promise of untold riches, sound like your idea of fun. The game also advertises a considerable max payout of 17,500x your bet - just over double the amount achieved by two Wheelz players last month (7,998x, 6,297x).
Hacksaw Gaming on a Roll
A separate Malta-based developer, Hacksaw Gaming, have themselves too enjoyed a stellar year, releasing hugely popular hits such as Chaos Crew and Cubes 2 in that time. The former cooked up a 8,117x win on July 3rd to take sixth on our Multiplier index, making July a profitable month for one player in Germany.
Two furry critter acquaintances known as Cranky and Sketchy are the stars of the show in Chaos Crew. The pair may land arbitrarily during any spin carrying modifiers to varying effect. Look out for either arriving during the epic Free Spins round, where the action cranks up a notch and the big wins can be found. The game remains a firm favourite with slot streamers, too, and features regularly on streaming platform highlight reels.
More recently the studio dropped a very different, but no less enjoyable game, which has been well received in the slot community. Paying out a 7,551x-sized win on July 29, Hop’n’Pop is a cheerful grid game producing a high feel-good-factor. It’s set on an idyllic country farm, where the sun shines bright and fresh produce grows abundantly. Symbols comprised of foodstuff are required to land in clusters of 5 or more to trigger a payout anywhere over the 7x7 reel setup in Hop’n’Pop, while the upbeat mood is enhanced nicely by a catchy backing audio.
The game sticks to the Hacksaw Gaming blueprint closely. Its deceptively appealing outer layer belies a brutal math model that can swallow up balances mercilessly - so make sure you’re sufficiently bankrolled before taking the game on. Counterbalancing the highly volatile engine, big wins are certainly achievable - especially in Free Spins where Hopping Multipliers are on hand to significantly boost your returns.
Notable mentions in the Multiplier table for July also go to Infectious 5 xWays, yet another sterling creation from Nolimit City (6,561x) and Lucky Halloween by Red Tiger Gaming (6,153x).
