On the Spin – Slot launch round-up

As a number of new igaming titles grace the CasinoBeats inbox, sit back and get to grips with a select few new slot games in one handy bite-size chunk.

Big Time Gaming – Star Clusters

Big Time Gaming will introduce its new Megaclusters game engine with the release of Star Clusters on 24th June with the slot expected to ‘forever change our perception of cluster-pays slots’.

The symbols in this game consist of various gems which are aqua, yellow, orange, green, blue, red and purple which can offer up to 50x the original stake. The two wild symbols, a regular wild and a special gold wild, help pull clusters together. 

With the Megaclusters mechanic, each symbol that forms part of a winning combo will split into four smaller symbols to create even more Megaclusters. As a result the 4×4 grid with 16 tiles can break into a maximum of 64 tiles during Star Cluster’s Megaclusters mode. 

Dylan Slaney, SVP Gaming, Digital at Scientific Games, stated: “This is an exciting new development that once again brings breakthrough player experiences from our OpenGamingTM ecosystem.

“What I love about BTG’s games is their ability to redesign a classic by using rich layers of technology to create something diverting and unexpected. That’s really evident in Star Clusters and it’s a thrill to bring the global launch of this new Megaclusters mechanic as an exclusive first on OGS.”  

Big Time Gaming CEO Nick Robinson added: “We believe that Megacluster is quite literally a game changer in the online casino space and we’re delighted that it’s received a great reception from reviewers. Expect to see this mechanic feature in more BTG games in the future.”

Evoplay – Fluffy Rangers

Evoplay has launched its latest title Fluffy Rangers with the game implementing a range of interactive promotional activities.

Through the use of Face filters on instagram players can interact with the slots five main characters Katara the sheep, Shu Shu the raccoon, Lin the monkey, Drago the coyote, and Shadi the lynx.

The 20 payline, 3×5 video slot features a free Spins Round that involves collecting all five Fluffy Rangers symbols. If the characters are collected then wild ranger symbols burst onto the reels, providing a greater chance to win big.

Ivan Kravchuk, CEO at Evoplay Entertainment stated: “Players with a taste for adventure and all things adorable are invited to an action-packed jousting tournament in the magical forest of Rabbitland.

“We’ve continued to go from strength to strength in recent months with a rapidly expanding global fanbase and are delighted to showcase another industry first with Instagram filters for our game’s lovable characters. We can’t wait to see what our players make of it!”

Habanero – Scopa

Taking influence from the popular Italian table title of the same name, Habanero’s latest slot Scopa takes the game to the virtual world on a 3-4-3 grid featuring original characters and an authentic soundtrack.

The aim of the game is to ‘sweep’ the reel matching the symbols which are available. As a result, all tiles on the screen are winning symbols, meaning that paylines are not necessary.

A $1.50 bet can see a player win from $0.30 (by matching three low price symbols) to $25 (five king symbols) before any multipliers are added. Moreover, during the titles free spins round, players depart on an immersive journey through the nation’s historic regions. These stops, which include Genoa, Milan, Naples, Tuscany and Venice, are intended to acknowledge the game’s origin with each city also adding a special feature to the slot.

Arcangelo Lonoce, Head of Business Development Europe at Habanero commented: “We are delighted to release the immersive hit Scopa across our operator network, and we are proud of what we have achieved in transposing the much-loved card game of the same name into this innovative slot formula.

“We hope that transporting players on a memorable exploration of Italy’s vibrant past while playing its favourite card game will prove to be the perfect hit – and we’re excited to be bringing it to our players in Italy and the world over.”

Endorphina – The Rise of AI 

Set in the year 2025 The Rise of AI, Endorphina’s new cyberpunk release, combines traditional slot play with a classic card game to provide the opportunity for greater rewards.

If a player wins they can gamble in the classic Risk Game. Choosing a card from the four cards dealt on the table, a player can increase their win up to 10 times. If the selected card beats the Dealer’s card, the win is doubled, and the player can try again. If the Dealer wins in any round, the risk game ends with no wins awarded to the player.

The slot is equipped with a 5-reel, 3-row, with 10 paylines, however, during every spin there is the possibility for a random multiplier thanks to another feature by Endorphina. In total the value of a payout can rise up to x50.

The CEO of Endorphina, Jan Urbanec, stated:  “Endorphina’s team is excited to bring to its players and operators our vision of a cyberpunk world. “The Rise of AI” contains a mathematical model with one of the best big winning potential for players that Endorphina has ever created.”
