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.

Syncronite – Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil has released Syncronite, its latest slot titles that features the Splitz mechanic and was one display at the inaugural CasinoBeats Slots Festival earlier this week.

The Splitz mechanic can turn any single symbol on the reels into multiple smaller symbols, increasing the potential ways to win. The Splitz symbols are only available on synchronised reels, meaning you will always land these on multiple reels, up to all six reels in the game. The number of ways to win can go from a minimum of 729 up to 21,168 from a lucky Splitz.

Another feature in Syncronite is synced reels, which gives two to six synchronized reels on every spin. The synchronised reels will all land the same set of symbols, leading to an enhanced win potential, especially when landing Splitz symbols.

“Syncronite is a game for the true casino lover with a premium design and high gambling value. The mechanics are all familiar to players, but the combination of synced reels and Splitz is a killer combo, giving so many thrills and excellent win potential. Do you know any other game that can pay out 64,800 times the stake in one single hit, straight from the base game?

“Despite the insane win potential, the game will be easy on the players’ bankroll, giving decent mid-sized wins often enough to keep the interest up. Syncronite is an impressive production with balanced math and classic gambling excitement. It’s a game that all player types can appreciate and love.” – Jonas Strandman, Senior Games Strategist at Yggdrasil.

Serengeti Wilds – Stakelogic & Hurricane Games

Serengeti Wilds, a 5×4 reel, 25 payline video slot, has been unveiled by Stakelogic and its Hurricane Games development partner, with the title aiming to capture the spirit and magic of an African safari.

The game includes a free spins bonus round that is triggered when three or more scatter symbols pounce onto the reels. There are four animal trials to follow during the bonus, which are completed by winning animal symbols in a line win.

When the trail is complete, the related animal symbol turns wild and two more free spins are awarded. All four animal trails can be completed during the feature, providing mega win potential.

Furthermore, Serengeti Wilds also allows players to gamble their winnings. They can bet on the card colour or card suit – the former potentially multiplying their win x2 and the latter x4.

“We have long had a vision for what Serengeti Wilds would look and play like, and by joining the Greenlogic Program and working with the Stakelogic team we have brought that concept to life.

“I would like to thank Stakelogic for the opportunity to collaborate on this and we really can’t wait to see the game hit operator lobbies over the coming weeks.” – Damion WarrenCEO at Hurricane Games.

Thunder Shields – iSoftBet

Promising a “Nordic epic” iSoftBet’s Thunder Shields is the first slot to feature a three-tiered jackpot within a ‘Hold and Win’ game.

The title is the fourth to contain the firm’s Hold and Win mechanic, which contains various features such as booster shields, colossal respins, thunderstorm prizes and mystery spins.

During base gameplay, a Hammer symbol acts not only as a wild, but also triggers the Colossal Respin modifier, where giant symbols appear, covering up to four reels and leading to huge wins. The Mystery spins feature sees at least three reels land as stacked mystery symbols, which all reveal the same symbol for impressive win potential.

To trigger the Hold and Win bonus, six or more cash shields need to land on the reels, awarding three respins. Every time a new shield lands, the respin counter resets.

Thunder Shields’ booster’s come into play during this mode, with different colour shields revealing a different modifier. This can be multiplier increases, collector shields to bank all money already on the board and clear it for more opportunities to win, as well as a reel boost, cash boost or respins boost.

“Thunder Shields sees our Viking warriors set sail on the high seas in search of treasure in our latest top performing Hold and Win game. Packed full of features, the bonus round has the potential to lead to massive wins.

“We’re thrilled with this title. We consistently strive to create unique content for a diverse range of demographics, and the development of our Hold and Win series of games has been a real point of pride this year.” – Mark Claxton, Head of Games at iSoftBet.

Cowboys Gold – Pragmatic Play

Journey to the Wild West in Pragmatic Play’s Cowboys Gold, the 3×5 video that invites players to hunt the reels for a band of cowboy outlaws and the renegade.

Sheriff symbols act as wilds, while the renegade can trigger the money collect feature, where if he lands then any cowboy symbols holding monetary value are instantly collected.

Three or more skull-faced outlaws trigger the free spins mode, where the outlaws can have a multiplier attached to them. If the renegade lands on the fifth reel, he will instantly bank the value of any outlaws on the reels.

He also acts as a bonus symbol in both base play and the bonus round. If three bonus symbols or a bonus and renegade land on the same spin during free spins, then more respins are triggered. The more retriggers, then the higher the bonus round multiplier climbs, where it can reach up to 5x.

“Cowboys Gold takes players to the Wild West in search of big wins in a thrilling addition to our Gold range of titles. With the Renegade playing an important role, he’ll soon become a player’s best friend, while the increasing multiplier in free spins means any spin could turn into a lucrative win.

“Creating games that appeal to a wide variety of players is important to us and we’re very proud of our intense roadmap which delivers high-quality content on a weekly basis.” – Lena Yasir, vice president at Pragmatic Play.
