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.
Twin Spin Megaways – NetEnt
NetEnt has combined “one of its most successful slots with the industry’s top mechanic,” as the developer introduces Twin Spin Megaways.
The six-reel title sees the return of the Twin Reel feature, which has been complemented by NetEnt’s Avalanche mechanic and Megaways, on licence from Big Time Gaming.
With old-Vegas aesthetics, including retro-style graphics and jazz sounds, the feature combination adds an extra twist to the game as the number of symbols on the reels is randomly chosen on each spin, reaching up to 117649 Megaways.
“Twin Spin is a signature title in our portfolio which continues to attract players years after release, so with the addition of the Megaways and Avalanche features, we expect this title will be one of our biggest releases of the year.
“The look and feel of the original have been replicated perfectly to match the excitement of the enhanced gameplay, making Twin Spin Megaways a headline game that will no doubt draw in the crowds for our operator partners.” – Andy Whitworth, Chief Commercial Officer at NetEnt.
Rise of Athena – Play’n Go
The latest Play’n Go slot release is introduced as part of a double debut, with Rise of Athena showcased alongside Viking Runecraft Bingo.
Rise of Athena, is a 5×3 video slot based on the mythological Greek goddess of wisdom and featuring various symbols from her lore, including Athena, Pegasus and her owl Glaukopis.
The wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except scatter, and appears only on reels two, three, and four. Each wild provides a x1, x2 or x3 multiplier. Multipliers accumulate when more than one wild is present on a payline – resulting in a maximum multiplier of x27.
If the player lands three or more scatter symbols the game awards 12 free spins. Wild symbols are sticky, until their multiplier runs out. The multiplier on each wild reduces by one between each spin.
Once no multiplier remains, the respective wild symbol is removed from the reels. Additional free spins cannot be won; the scatter symbol is not present in free spins.
“This isn’t the first time we’ve had multiple releases on the same day; we have built ourselves into a position where it is well within our capacity to deliver more than one high-quality title into the market simultaneously.
“Of course, these are two different games giving two different experiences, giving more new options for operators to entertain their players, and that’s what it’s all about.” – Martin Zettergren, Play’n Go CPO.
Wheel of Wonders – Push Gaming
Wheel of Wonders, which is out now following an exclusive launch with operator Casumo, features an expanding grid that starts out at 6×3 in the base game and boasts potential to grow to 6×6, with up to 46,656 ways to win.
The expanding grid is designed to allow players to experience “the thrill of progression and anticipation with every spin” as they hunt down instant wins and unique features.
The slot is said to include big win potential in its base game via the inclusion of win multipliers along with its free games. Upon fully expanding the reels, players will be immersed into the Wheel of Wonders feature, filled with progressive multipliers, level-up possibilities and the retrigger meter which fills with every win, granting more spins and bigger multipliers.
“Every game we deliver to operators and their players has to bring something new to the table, and Wheel of Wonders does just that.
“Created to bring about another level of entertainment in slot games, with a base game full of features that leads into an free spins feature that has huge potential – we are confident that this slot will prove to be popular among a wide range of demographics.
“Not only across a variety of markets, but especially for slot enthusiasts that are looking for something new.” – James Marshall, CEO at Push Gaming.
Beast Saga – Booongo
Set in an ornate temple in the Far East, Booongo’s 5×4, 50-payline Beast Saga includes stacked symbols as heroes battle on the reels.
Yin and Yang symbols act as wilds across the gameplay, with the fearsome Dragon Beast the highest-paying character. Three or more Scatter symbols will trigger the free spins mode, with 10 spins building excitement as stacked reels can lead to larger payouts.
“Creating quality diverse titles is vitally important in our design process and we’re thrilled to meet our expectations with the launch Beast Saga.
“Within its beautifully crafted setting, stacked symbols mean any spin can lead to a lucrative win and the mystical Beast rewards players upon the reels. We look forward to seeing how our latest release is received by our customers and fans alike.” – Yuriy Muratov, head of account management and business development at Booongo.
