August marked the peak of summer vibes all over the world (except Australia, they're weird). If you weren't out lapping up the sun and taking a swim, then chances are you were enjoying some spins on the new online slots.
And who could blame you? Microgaming, Push Gaming, Yggdrasil, Play'n GO and Red Tiger have all produced some really fun slots to play this month. We've listed them in descending order from 5 to 1 – with 5 being at the bottom of the range. All 5 slots are still great in their own respect – but not all slots were created equal. Check out our picks below!

As is typical of Red Tiger Gaming, Flaming Fox is very plain in terms of aesthetics. Aside from the fact that the ‘Flaming Fox' himself looks like the ninja version of Fantastic Mr Fox (the Wes Anderson film, not the Roald Dahl book), there's nothing much else to it. A lot of players prefer this stripped down, straight-to-the-gameplay slot.
Flaming Fox comes with a betting range between C$0.01 and C$20 which is a bit limited. However, it has a maximum win of 3,333x your stake and comes with a high volatility rate. Admittedly, this isn't the most exciting slot of the month, but it's a solid choice if you're looking for some wins. The maximum win + high volatility combo makes this a decently entertaining slot.

4. Rise of Olympus, Play'n GO
Rise of Olympus is an incredibly entertaining slot based on the triad of (very buff) Greek Gods: Zeus, Poseidon and Hades. Each god has his own respective level. Once you get the spins rolling, you can just sit back and watch the special features work their magic. But – there is something glaringly obvious about this slot to Play'n GO fans – it is a total copy of Viking Runecraft. Different mythology, same gameplay.
Although it doesn't get any marks for innovation, Rise of Olympus still has impressive features. It is a slot of high volatility, with a maximum win of up to 5,000x your stake. More significantly (like Viking Runecraft) it is a cascading slot. This means that the player will have way more chances at landing wins than in a normal video slot. The slot has an RTP of 96.5%, which is actually a really good percentage.
Out of all the slots in this slot, Hanzo's Dojo is by far the most fun to play just purely based on graphics and gameplay. It starts off with the characteristic Yggdrasil animated intro, and then opens up to some cool looking reels. In fact, the slot is structured on 5 reels and 25 paylines with an additional single bonus reel. The bonus reel really spices things up once triggered.
As you can imagine from the title of the slot, Hanzo's Dojo is themed on the idea of the Japanese dojo. The characters of this slot include a sumo, a ninja, a samurai and a geisha (a lethal geisha). Quite the colorful cast of dojo members.
As for the technical side of the slot: Hanzo's Dojo has a maximum win of up to 3,000x your stake and is of medium volatility. It has a betting range of C$0.10 – C$125, which gives players plenty of room for flexible wagers. It has an RTP of 96.1%, just above the industry standard. Hanzo's Dojo has wild symbols, scatter symbols, expanding wilds, a Hanzo's Rooftop bonus round and free spins all built into the gameplay.

2. Rainbrew, Just for the Win
Just for the Win is a favorite with Canadian players for a reason – it creates simple, good-looking slots which payout well! It's why slots like Deco Diamonds proved to be a smash hit the world over. Perhaps you'll prove to be as lucky as a leprechaun when playing Rainbrew, true to its theme!
The slot is based on a structure that can shift from 243 ways to win to 1125 ways to win during gameplay (depending on what you trigger). Already, that makes it an enticing pick for any player. Rainbrew is of medium volatility and has a betting range between C$0.10 to C$100. It also has an RTP of 96.02%. Yes we know the ‘.02%' is a bit ridiculous to count, but we're nothing if not accurate at Playcasinos.ca.
Way more excitingly, Rainbrew has a maximum win of a massive 136,035 coins! Now that's something to write home about, if you manage to hit it that is. The slot also has the usual special features, like wild symbols, free spins and a sidewinder feature. All factors that make Rainbrew deserving of its no. 2 position on our monthly slot wrap-up list.

1. Viking Clash, Push Gaming
We've finally arrived – le pièce de résistance! Viking Clash is as un-creative as they get when we're talking about themes (the ‘viking' thing has been overdone into the grave). But everything else about more than makes up for this tiny fact.
For one, this Push Gaming product comes with dual reels. This means that players have two sets of reels with two sets of 25 paylines to play on when spinning. Another popular slot which has a similar feature is Planet of the Apes from NetEnt – which Canadian players can't play. But now you have Viking Clash, so it's all good for Canada.
Some other really great facts about this slot include the fact that it can switch between medium and high volatility – depending on whether you're playing the base or bonus game. Viking Clash has a flexible betting range of C$0.25 to C$100. It has an RTP of 96.67% and a maximum win of 13,200x your stake. Wawza! Those are the type of numbers we like to see on slot games!
All in all, Viking Clash definitely deserves the coveted no. 1 place this month. Push Gaming really seems to be … pushing the envelope on this one. Feel free to hate us for that particular pun. But after you're done doing that, you should really check out Viking Clash using the link down below.
