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.
Red Tiger – Gonzo’s Quest
A revamped igaming title has been introduced by online casino developer Red Tiger, with the firm debuting Gonzo’s Quest MegaWays.
Lauded as being “among NetEnt’s best ever performers,” the supplier is aiming to add “a further layer of excitement” via the Big Time Gaming licensed mechanic, which varies the ways to win on every spin.
The title invites players to join a charming Spanish explorer’s quest for El Dorado, where intrepid adventurers could discover wins of up to 20,000x.
“Gonzo’s Quest™ has consistently proven itself as one of the best slot games on the market, so we are delighted to give it a further boost with the renowned MegaWays™ mechanic.
“The team has worked tirelessly alongside our partners at NetEnt to deliver this summer’s most anticipated slot. We are thrilled to see the collective effort rewarded with a fantastic new release.” – Carl Ejlertsson, director of business development at Red Tiger.
Play’n Go – Win-a-Beest
Set on the plains of Africa, Play’n Go promises a “new spin on the classic Buffalo-style games” with its wildlife themed Win-a-Beest title.
Played on a 2-4-4-4-2 diamond grid, the wildebeest serves as a ‘super-symbol’ and is the most valuable icon in a game that only needs two-of-a-kind to payout instead of three.
The game’s features all revolve around the wildebeest with the first two, Beest Mode and Beest Mode spins, only featuring the wildebeest, wild and scatter symbols on the reels, with stampeding spins giving players more access to the former.
Each feature expands the reels to create a 5×4 grid, increasing the number of payways from 256 to 1024, giving four times as many opportunities to win.
“This is a game all about power. The wildebeest is a powerful animal, and it combines with a strong paytable to give players more powerful wins.The features, multiplier wilds and grid expansion are all designed to add into the excitement and energy that a ‘wild’ slot like this should generate, we know players will enjoy what it has to offer.” – Martin Zettergren, Play’n Go CPO.
Swintt – Sea Raiders
Prepare for an adventure as Swintt prepares to debut “their most ambitious game to date,” with Sea Raiders debuting on Tuesday 28 June.
Promising echoes of video games, Sea Raiders offers up a player journey whereby collecting special symbols unlocks new islands on an in-game map. Each island corresponds to a particular theme with a specific bonus round.
Each of the progressive meters in Sea Raiders has five milestones, which in the base game trigger the respective bonus rounds, namely walking wilds re-spins, random wilds re-spins or stacked wilds re-spins, and once all five have been reached, the new island is unlocked.
The different islands correspond to the bonus round, so once a specific island has been unlocked, players are three times more likely to trigger the bonus round for that island. Three scatter symbols will also grant a lucky player the Treasure Hunt bonus round.
Making use of persistent data, player progress in Sea Raiders is saved upon exiting so players can return to the game, pick up where they left off and continue their progress in completing the map or playing in specific islands.
“I’ve been excited about Sea Raiders since I first heard the concept, and I’m delighted to see it being launched imminently. This is a really special title with added value for players who enjoy unlocking new slots within the same game.
“Our studio has been delivering consistently stronger games time after time and Sea Raiders looks to be the jewel in our crown so far.” – David Mann, business development director at Swintt.
Microgaming – Diamond Inferno
Microgaming’s latest introduction, developed by Triple Edge Studios, begins as a five-by-three, 20-payline slot which raises the heat with a multiplier trail, expanding reels, respins and diamond scatter wins.
On each win, a free respin is awarded as the play area expands by one row, adding ten additional paylines with each expansion. Diamond Inferno can expand up to a five-by-six reel grid with 50 paylines.
Once the entire five-by-six reel grid is unlocked, players embark on a multiplier trail, as players reach the pinnacle of the inferno with wins multiplied up to 10x.
Filled with classic casino icons, including fiery sevens, golden bars and lucky dice, Diamond Inferno also boasts diamond scatters. Landing three or more diamond scatter symbols awards players with further wins, all multiplied by the total bet.
“With exciting mechanics, rocking music and a thrilling gameplay experience, Diamond Inferno is sure to delight and excite players. The expanding reels, multiplier trail and unlimited respin potential offer the chance for tremendous wins, whilst the eye-catching graphics provide all the makings of a hit slot game.” – Andrew Booth, director of games at Microgaming.
Pragmatic Play – Street Racer
The 4×5, 40 payline Stree Racer sees users enter the world of street racing, with five drivers battling for big prizes on the reels.
If three free spins symbols hit at the same time, the progressive bonus game is triggered where players can choose one driver symbol to start their spins.
Every time three free game symbols land during the bonus round, the player levels up, gaining more free spins and transforming the driver symbols on the reels to give them the opportunity to accelerate to 2,000x their stake.
“Street Racer is a dynamic, thrilling new addition to our slot portfolio. With a high-octane theme and massive prizes to be won, its action will keep players on the edge of their seat.
“Our development roadmap is focused on crafting industry-leading slots that drive the excitement of both players and operators. With Street Racer’s theme and immersive gameplay – this new slot would be a great way to rev-up any operator’s portfolio.” – Melissa Summerfield, chief commercial officer at Pragmatic Play.
