Autumn sees a major changing of the guard from summer, with no games from last quarter reappearing in the big win rankings.
This time around, Nolimit City bursts onto the leaderboards in a big way, taking the top spot of monetary wins with Mental and taking four more spots in the big multiplier wins rankings.
Stakelogic’s new game Kangaroo King has made a big impression since its release in September, pouching the top multiplier win for one lucky player and the fourth highest multiplier for another, both just two days after its release.

Mental by Nolimit City
Nolimit City’s nightmarish game, Mental, takes the top spot for highest monetary wins with a massive €186,417 win from a €2.81 bet, getting there on the strength of a powerful x66264 multiplier, which also takes third place in the highest multiplier wins rankings.
The game is set in an old asylum, featuring unsettling sepia images of human anatomy and horrific medical procedures that are thankfully consigned to the dark depths of history. It’s not for the faint of heart, and neither is the gameplay.
The game boasts a maddening amount of features, including premium Dead Patient symbols with multipliers of up to x9,999 attached and three different free spins games: Autopsy Free Spins, Lobotomy Free Spins, and Mental Free Spins. The most potent of these is Mental Free Spins, where 10 spins take place with sticky spider symbols triggering Mental Transformations to make more insanity happen on the reels with xWays, xSplit, Dead Patient, Wild, or Patient symbols.
Le Bandit by Hacksaw Gaming
Hacksaw Gaming’s recent release Le Bandit pilfered a mighty €100,000 win for one lucky player just a few weeks after its August release.
The game shows off the Super Cascade Wins system, meaning that not only are winning symbols removed from the grid but all symbols of the same type are as well. In addition, squares on the grid where winning combos happen become Golden Squares, and if a Rainbow Symbol appears, then the Golden Squares reveal valuable coins worth up to 500x, four-leaf clovers that multiply the values of symbols around them, and pots of gold that collect the values of all coin symbols on the grid.
Like Mental, the game has 3 different free spins modes to explore: Luck of the Bandit, All That Glitters Is Gold, and Treasure at the End of the Rainbow where Golden Squares remain in effect throughout the round and Rainbow symbols are guaranteed to appear on each spin.
Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead by Play’n GO
Cat Wilde - daughter of the by-now legendary slot game archaeologist Rich Wilde - continues to create her own legend in Cat Wilde and the Doom of Dead, which unearthed a massive €72,023.89 win for one lucky adventurer this summer.
The game delivers another variation on the ever-popular “Book of” style action. The twist here is simply that the famous free spins round - with its customary special expanding symbol - can be retriggered indefinitely.
For the uninitiated, the classic “Book of” free spins round begins with one pay symbol being randomly selected as the Special Expanding Symbol. When this symbol lands it expands to cover the entire reel and pays out regardless of if any others are adjacent.

Kangeroo King by Stakelogic
Bounding to the top of the multiplier win rankings for Q3 with a whopping x158,270 multiplier, Kangaroo King delivered a boomer-sized €22,523 win from a little joey-sized bet of just €0.14.
The recently released game features a cast of Australasian animal boxers, chief among which is the Kangaroo King himself, who, when he appears, moves around the grid, leaving wilds in his path before winnings are calculated.
The free spins round begins with a Kangaroo King Wild being placed on the grid, which remains there, changing positions with each spin. The marsupial pugilist can be expanded to 2x2 squares, 3x3 squares, and so on, by completing stages of the Expanding Trail. To complete a stage, winning combos need to be created using the symbols indicated to the right of the grid, at which point, a number of extra spins are awarded. At the final stage, the Kangaroo King expands to 5x5 squares, filling the entire grid for massive payouts.
Mega Moolah by Microgaming
A venerable mega-classic from way back in 2006, Mega Moolah is a legendary jackpot game that has been around the block a few times but clearly still draws a crowd, and for good reason. This August, it proved the case for its continuing appeal, yet again, with a massive x44,165 multiplier win, giving one lucky player a €15,001 payout from a €0.34 bet. It’s a long way from the biggest wins achieved in the game’s storied history but massive nonetheless.
There’s a free spins round of 15 spins that’s activated when 3 scatter symbols appear on the reels. It’s pretty straightforward stuff - more scatters can retrigger the round and the deal is further sweetened by the winnings being tripled at the end of the round.
The real attraction is the bonus wheel, which can be activated randomly on any spin and offers a chance at winning any of the game’s Mini, Minor, Major, or Mega Jackpots, which are displayed above the reels and regularly climb to seriously vertigo-inducing heights.
Fire in the Hole xBomb by Nolimit City
Another entry from Nolimit City. Fire in the Hole xBomb is a more approachable experience than Mental but nonetheless delivers the kind of edgy, high-volatility action the studio is known for.
The game features a fun, Collapsing Mine mechanic, which sees rows on the bottom half of the grid open up when winning combos or explosive xBomb Wilds appear. The xBomb Wilds also remove adjacent symbols, allowing more to drop in, leading to some very satisfying chain reactions.
Last month, the game delivered an explosive €5,306 win from a nugget-sized €0.20 bet. Impressive, but still only a modest sample of its potential - the x26,530 multiplier achieved is less than half of the game’s purported x60,000 max win.
