After an exciting April in terms of its slots proposal, renowned software company Microgaming, based in the Isle of Man, is offering to casino operators and players a wide array of attractive, new titles that will bring them income, entertainment and lots of prizes.
Main product of Microgaming will be Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways (available on May 25th) from Triple Edge Studios. This game mixes the emotion of the acclaimed Megaways mechanic -which provides anything up to 117,645 ways to win on each spin- with the explosive fun of Rolling Reels. Add to that infinite multipliers in the free spins mode, and a ‘Collect Pot’ mechanic that leads to the Pick Bonus and a jackpot, and you will have a game that promises to be one of the biggest hits of the year. Poseidon is the Greek God of the Sea, an ill-tempered deity who fiercely guards his vast underwater treasure hoard. Players can lay their hands on Poseidon’s treasure via a minimum of 12 free spins, volcano retriggers, and those infinite multipliers.
This week, Serengeti Gold game was published. The sun rises over the Serengeti, which means it’s time for some safari-style casino action from Just For The Win. Here, Africa’s ‘Big Five’ (the lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants and buffalos) are the stars of the show. But they’re also competing for players’ attention with Hyperhold respins, Static Jackpots and free spins with multipliers. Six or more bonus symbols will trigger three Hyperhold respins. The triggering symbols are locked in position, while only new bonus symbol can land during the feature. These offer anything from 1x to 20x multipliers to jackpots. Filling all positions triggers the big one, the 2,500x Mega jackpot!
Today, 10,000 Wishes, from Alchemy Gaming, is being released. This is an Arabian-themed slot with a Wheel Bonus offering a jackpot of up to 10,000x the stake. Landing three or more Power Wheel scatter symbols triggers the Power Spins feature, where the reels are filled with giant symbols for bigger payouts. Power Spins mode is also where the Wheel Bonus can be activated. Players are guaranteed to win one of four fixed jackpots: Mega (10,000x), Major (500x), Minor (50x), and Mini (15x).
Next week, on May 11th, it will be the moment for players to swim in the blue sea for the deeply dishy Atlantis Rising, a bubbly adventure-themed slot from SpinPlay Games, set in the titular underwater city of legend. This colorful fantasy world is packed with Rising Wilds, Wild Blasts and free spins. When a compass symbol lands behind a Rising Wild, all adjacent positions turn wild, forming a Wild Blast. In the free spins pick bonus game, players select bubbles until no picks remain. Each bubble can reveal between one and five free spins or two to three additional picks.
Newly-remastered Mega Moolah Goddess (May 13th) is an Ancient Egypt-themed slot that just happens to be plugged into Microgaming’s record-breaking Mega Moolah progressive jackpot. Three scatters transport players to the jackpot wheel, where they can experience the thrill of a chance of winning a massive prize. The wheel offers a shot at one of four jackpots: Mini, Minor, Major, and Mega. And Mega means Mega, with the progressive prize pot seeding at €1 million, frequently paying out seven and eight-figure sums!
Of course, there are also some exciting products for the classic slot format. Joyful Joker Megaways (May 18th), from All41 Studios, has traditional slot symbols, including fruit, bells, lucky horseshoes, and a joker, all enhanced by the Megaways and Rolling Reels mechanics. Meanwhile, Joker Spins activate randomly on any winning base game spin, where a bonus wheel can award multipliers of anything between 2x and 10x. The free spins feature offers unlimited free spins, complete with an expanding multiplier which increases with each Rolling Reels win.
On May 20th, Microgaming will provide more treasures of the deep follow with Silver Seas, a pirate booty-themed slot from Gold Coin Studios. Players land silver coin symbols on the reels for prizes, and the more they get, the bigger the payout is, up to 2,000x the stake. There’s also a Free Spins Wheel that offers the chance to win up to 30 free spins, plus a 3x multiplier. This slot plays great and looks fantastic. The reels are decorated with cannons, cutlasses, doubloons, and bottles of rum, everything any self-respecting pirate needs for a spot of high-seas treasure hunting.
