Reinforcing its reputation as one of the industry’s leading content aggregators, Microgaming continues to build relationships with the most exciting and original new studios in the gaming space. This is what keeps the platform’s content fresh, diverse and relevant.
In April, the company has a lot of surprises for all type of players. The most relevant launching will be 8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger Megaways (in April 22nd), a game from Buck Stakes Entertainment, latest newcomer to Microgaming’s network of exclusive independent studios. This glamorous pirate-themed slot is tipped for great things, not least because it’s brimming with features. Players can win up to 1,900x their stake thanks to the Firepot jackpot scatter feature. There’s a mystery symbol feature, plus Rolling Reels, free spins and multiplier bonus wheel. It’s all topped off with the acclaimed Megaways mechanic, randomly producing between 64 to 117,649 ways to win with every spin.
During this week, Microgaming has already presented amazing slots. Gold Collector (April 6th), from All41 Studios, is a cartoon caper set deep underground, as we excavate the earth for the world’s third-most precious metal using shovels, pickaxes and good old-fashioned TNT. The star of the show is the HyperHold feature, which offers players the chance to win one of five jackpots. Landing a gold coin on a reel during this feature will lock it in, while the respins reset to three. Filling as many gold-coin positions rewards big prizes. The same day, Inspired’s Irish-themed Slots O’Luck was launched. It allows players to enable the Gamble feature for a chance to increase their winnings or to win free spins. Yesterday, Robbin’ Robin, a feature-packed medieval slot from Iron Dog Studios, saw daylight.
In the coming days, the company prepares exciting products. Hold’Em Poker 2 (April 12th) is the latest edition in Microgaming’s new poker offering. This multiplayer game has a random prize-pool generator that’s linked to a progressive jackpot. It also has funky new avatars and comes fully optimized for mobile gaming. Next, new kid on the block, Gong Gaming Technologies, presents Inferno Gladiator (also on April 12th). If you think it was a tough life being a Roman gladiator, try doing it when the Colosseum is on fire! This scorching adventure offers players free spins, sticky wilds and multipliers galore.
Next week also includes launching of Queen of Alexandria WowPot (April 13th), from Neon Valley Studios. It transports players to the ancient world and the court of Cleopatra. The WowPot progressive jackpot features four different progressive jackpot tiers, with the top prize seeding at €2 million and nearing €15 million! Once the WowPot Bonus Wheel has been triggered, the player is guaranteed to take home one of the four jackpot prizes in a lump sum. Queen of Alexandria WowPot boasts an expanding wilds respin feature and, in addition to the WowPot game, is available as a standalone game with fixed-limit jackpots. Moreover, there will be a double whammy of classic slot action from 1x2gaming with Triple Bar 98 and Triple Bar 96 (April 14th).

Later, SpinPlay Games’ 9 Blazing Diamonds (April 27th) will arrive. It’s a classic slot shot through with fiery gemstones that cascade down the reels, as boisterous big band music adds a frenetic pace to the proceedings. Watch out for the aforementioned blazing diamonds, which award prizes when three or more are scattered on the reels. The Blazing Wheel offers players the chance to win either instant cash prizes or free spins, both of which come with a multiplier up to 4x!
The ending of the month will gather together exiting slots: Wild Flower (April 28th), from Big Time Gaming, brings on a mystical quest to break the eternal frost and unleash the spring. Then, in a big jump from cold to hot weather, there will be Egyptian Tombs (April 29th), a product designed by Snowborn Games. Players will be scouring ancient tombs for treasure, bumping into everyone from Cleopatra to the Egyptian sun god Ra along the way. Landing three Scarab symbols triggers the Tomb Bonus feature, where players can spin the Wheel of Fortune to win 8-50 free spins. Meanwhile, hitting three Scarab symbols during free spins will retrigger the feature and award extra spins. During Super Spins, which are randomly triggered, extra symbols are added to the reels and Ra symbols turn wild.
