November's Biggest Wins at Caxino
We can just about count on two hands the number of big wins at Caxino that have eclipsed the €100,000-mark since we opened for business in the Summer. Indeed, last month didn’t see any payouts north of just half that figure. Top honours in October with a month-high of €51,925 went to Ramses Book, GAMOMAT’s popular Ancient Egyptian-themed offering built around its manuscript belonging to the revered Ramses himself.
Fast-forward a few weeks, and the reel action cranked up a notch or two at Caxino, with a pair of MegaWays slots hogging the headlines for the month of November.
July this year saw everyone’s favourite slot conquistador make a joyous return to the reels, benefitting from some patented shape-shifting treatment.
The beloved Gonzo’s Quest earned instant cult status from the moment it was unleashed on the world by NetEnt in 2013, and seven years on fans will not be left disappointed with the eagerly-awaited follow-up that sees the baton passed to fellow provider, Red Tiger Gaming.
It was a bold move from Red Tiger; attempting to tamper with a proven formula of a bona fide industry classic that has continued to stand the test of time. Ultimately, the gamble paid off handsomely, thanks to cutting edge casino technology paired with some deft craftwork of the Malta-based provider.
Gonzo Gets a MegaWays Makeover
Gonzo’s Quest Megaways blends the magic of the original with some new-age gaming, with a thick dose of irresistible Gonzo charm thrown in. The result is a truly enchanting slot adventure that beckons us to unearth the lost city of Eldorado with Gonzo for company, en route to some tantalising rewards.
A special mention goes out to the artwork, too, itself on the receiving end of some stunning enhancements. Assisted by augmented win potential, it’s a winning formula that proved particularly lucrative for one Caxino player last month, to the tune of €142,588.
That sizeable win is the largest we’ve seen in some time - and almost three times that which earned top billing in October.
MegaWays games have been all the rage throughout 2020, with almost every game provider scrambling to license the dynamic format from its developer, Big Time Gaming. Peering up at Gonzo from second place in November is the one that started it all back in 2016.
Set against a mountainous backdrop, the evergreen Bonanza introduced the slot world to this exciting slot technology. For the first time, players were treated to a whopping 117,649 ways to win in any single spin - skyrocketing win potential to new heights. The release heralded a new era in gaming, one that paved the way for countless other titles to adopt the innovative format.
The game also came agonisingly close to breaching the six-figure barrier last month, sending €97,980 the way of one player on November 21. Surely it’s only a matter of time before one player emerges from Bonanza’s goldmines six-figures richer.
No Stopping Nolimit City
At sixth is many people’s pick for the ‘game of the year’. Budding content creator NoLimit City have enjoyed a superb year, rolling out a long line of memorable video slots that have gone on to excite the industry at large.
Transporting players back out to the familiar slot stomping ground of the Wild West, Deadwood is the developer’s sequel to their 2019 release, Tombstone. The original, incidentally, took silver in the previous month’s Big Win standings. Nolimit clearly did their homework on the mini-series, as both titles enjoy widespread appeal at Caxino.
The reasons for Deadwood’s success are manifold. Aside from excellent production quality, marking a clear upgrade on its predecessor, it comes bursting at the seams with increasing multipliers in the lucrative free spins round that can scale astronomical heights in full power.
Deadwood is one of those slots that feels packaged perfectly for live streaming broadcasts, with the game often a feature on the highlight reels of many well-known industry personalities.
Classic Slot Resurgence
In an era dominated by slot releases promising huge payouts, next-gen mechanics and cutting-edge production, it was refreshing to see a pair of vintage creations register separate showings on our monthly rankings for November, hinting at a classic slot resurgence.
Evoking the essence of mechanical one-armed bandits, the stripped back Mega Joker represents a fusion of classic gaming with new-age aesthetics. NetEnt’s 2013 release sent €46,266.61 to one Caxino player last month, while another got their hands on some Extra Juicy rewards playing Pragmatic Play’s retro contribution to round off our Big Win recap (€21,672).
The perennially popular Jammin’ Jars, from Push Gaming (€29,432, €22,668), and Big Time Gaming’s electrifying Lil Devil (€27,007), are other notable titles responsible for five-figure scores in November.

Rewards Fit for a King
The less familiar ancient world of Camelot - or King Arthur’s castle to be precise, was the setting for November’s biggest Multiplier win served up at Caxino.
Powered by Red Tiger Gaming, Legendary Excalibur is played with just 10 paylines, offset somewhat by the adoption of ‘Win Both Ways’ which helps out by doubling your win potential on every spin.
Jam-packed with Wilds and Respins, try out the game for an enchanting trip back through the ages at Caxino.
The win, incidentally, came from a wager of just €1 towards the back end of the month - enough to send a considerable €37,563 in one player’s direction - riches fit for a king!
Lil Devil Domination
Occupying the last two podium places was a devilish online slot from leading supplier Big Time Gaming that has found favour with scores of slot aficionados since entering the market.
Abundant dynamite multipliers are a highlight of Lil Devil, which also packs a host of other features such as Be My Angel Free Spins and Dynamite Free Spins - making for some explosive slot action. A high variance score also explains Caxino players’ fondness for this electrifying 2019 release which is developing a habit of showing up on our rankings.
As you’ll know from our Big Win standings, the aforementioned Gonzo made Caxino his playground in November. And our bearded star was back at it in the Multiplier stakes, serving up wins to the tune of 14,259x and 9,199x, respectively.
Wild West Wins
Caxino regularly plays host to intriguing battles between those Ancient Egyptians and Wild West bandits, with places on our Big Win and Multiplier rankings at stake each month.
November saw the latter gain the upper hand on the Pharaoh descendants, stealing in at no. 4, no. 7 and no. 10 in the Multiplier table. The titles in question are both pillars of the online casino world, each boasting exhilarating gameplay along with the promise of some sky high payouts.
We’re talking, of course, about Relax Gaming’s smash hit 2020 sequel Money Train 2, joined by another wildly popular slot successor, Dead or Alive 2 from NetEnt.
Whether you’re fans of Wild West-themed games or not, both titles ought to be tried at least once by slot players of all tastes.
The other spots in November were taken up by the likes of Jammin’ Jars (12,505x) and 24K Dragon (7,881x) - Play’n GO’s exciting new fire-breathing slot release whose title holds the answer to its max win.
