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.
Foxpot – Foxium
Independent studio Foxium, in collaboration with Microgaming, is inviting players to step back through the doors of an opulent land-based casino, without setting a foot outside their front doors, via its latest online casino introduction Foxpot.
Foxpot is a three-reel video slot which has only one active payline, however, the main focus is very much on the fortune wheel which dominates the screen.
During the base game, the wheel operates as three bonus wheels in one: the money award, the multiplier and the respin mode, each with a different trigger.
Landing one, two or three bonus symbols provides a spin of each moving tier. One bonus symbol spins the money ring offering cash prizes plus three jackpots called mini, midi and Foxpot worth up to 1,000x the bet.
Two bonus symbols lets the player spin the second ring which awards a multiplier of up to x10 to be applied against whatever was won from the money ring. The third bonus symbol provides a spin on the third ring which may award a respin.
“In today’s market, players are yearning to recapture some of the magic of the physical casino, but online slots have also never been more popular.
“At Foxium we are constantly looking for new ways to innovate on our presentation and gameplay, and we recognised that we could push both these envelopes at the same time as giving players a chance to immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the casino.
“The result is Foxpot, a game that we are incredibly proud of, a game for our time, and a game that bottles the best of both online slots and physical casinos.” – Åke André, Foxium CEO.
Usain Bolt – Ganapati
Ganapati has released its long awaited Usain Bolt igaming title, a three-reel game which has 27 paylines that can increase to 108 if the reels fully expand to a 12×5 grid.
The tribute to the world’s fastest man, who is also said to have worked closely with the firm throughout the development process, features 11 symbols; a high wild symbol, a standard wild, five high-paying symbols and four low-paying.
The former of those is the main trigger and can launch two features. The first is the wild replacement feature. Once activated, a high symbol will be randomly replaced when a high wild completely appears on any reel.
The second feature is the reel extension which will award an additional re-spin once the reel has extended. Furthermore, multiple high symbols will be randomly replaced by standard wilds when the high wilds symbol covers a reel.
During the bonus round, the re-spin will be repeated if a high wild appears in full during the re-spin. This will continue until no more high wild symbols appear in full.
Kluster Krystals Megaclusters – Relax Gaming
Kluster Krystals Megaclusters is the first take on the Big Time Gaming mechanic by Relax Gaming, after it become the first supplier to gain IP rights to an offering where every spin brings the possibility of upgrading symbols.
Winning clusters kick things up a notch, causing all neighbouring symbols to upgrade to a double, triple or quad. The feature also applies to multipliers, boosting them by up to three times their starting value, causing win potential to soar.
Serving up even more action is the treasure trove of Krystals, with three mini features that are guaranteed to trigger a sequence of six avalanches, each offering the chance for players to enhance their game.
The bonus round sees up to seven free spins up for grabs and the potential to unlock four more, with symbol upgrades hidden in every nook and cranny.
“Megaclusters is another headline grabbing mechanic from our longstanding partners Big Time Gaming and we’re incredibly excited to be unveiling our first spin on the feature with Kluster Krystals Megaclusters.
“We’ve complemented the engaging mechanic with a fast-paced feature set and dazzling theme that really allows for the excellent maths model to shine. This title has set the tone of the quality entertainment we’ll be bringing to players this year.” – Simon Hammon, Relax Gaming CPO.
Mighty Stallion Hold & Win – iSoftBet
