On the spin - slot 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.

Romans: Legions of Gold – Spearhead Studios

Spearhead Studios is channelling Ancient Rome for its latest slot release, with Romans – Legions of Gold using a ‘ways’ mechanic and varying reel sizes, which offers players up to 20,160 ways to win.

The scatters trigger the free spins in which the two highest-paying symbols progressively become wilds on each reel at a time. Players who re-trigger free spins are promised a glorious win as impressive as the armies of Rome.

“Romans – Legion of Gold is the third title of the spring, after the sequel to our blockbuster Lara Jones is Cleopatra II and Wild Gold.

“I am positive that players will enjoy the many features we have created for their entertainment. While we continue to produce high-quality slots, we are also working on other types of games, such as poker and bingo, which are set to be released this year. Overall, 2021 is packed with fantastic new games.” – Kevin Corti, game development director at Spearhead Studios.

Fire Toad – Play’n Go

Fire Toad is a five-reel, 1,024-payline video slot which includes five high-paying toad symbols along with a free spins round, sees the online casino developer uncover a rare creature which becomes more powerful as it grows.

During the base game, the firefly is the scatter symbol, which also functions as a wild, whilst substituting for all symbols.

Furthermore, the game comes with five different sized toad, and four Hawaiian-themed card suit, symbols. The biggest is the highest paying symbol, while the smallest tadpole is the least expensive.

If the player lands two scatters on the reels, a toad symbol is chosen at random, and all smaller toads will upgrade to the chosen symbol. Moreover, three scatters award nine free spins, with five providing the player with 15.

The free spins begin with the smallest toad which has already upgraded by one size. The round can be retriggered an unlimited number of times. During the round, on each retrigger, the smallest available toad symbol will upgrade one size until all toads are the biggest size.

“Creativity is a lifeblood of entertainment. Developing new ideas and introducing new concepts to players keeps them engaged and interested in what you’re going to do next.

“Allowing people to be creative also creates a more positive and productive atmosphere, and that leads to great results.” – Johan Törnqvist, CEO of Play’n Go.

Mechanical Clover – BGaming

BGaming takes on the steampunk world in Mechanical Clover, a 3×3 video slot which includes a respin bonus and risk game to aid players in attempting win big.

During the base game, wild symbols substitute for any symbol in a line to complete a winning combination. The wild can drop on the central reel only, with the wild also triggering the respin Bonus.

Once triggered, 27 paylines become available with the feature providing one to six respins, increasing multiplier with every new respin. Symbols that complete winning combinations during the bonus stay on the reels until the end of the free spins series. The game also comes with a risk game which can be activated on any win.

“Thinking of the idea for a new slot, we were inspired by Mechanical Orange, the game that was released two years ago.

“It was the first game in the steampunk style in our lineup and it was definitely worth having a new breath. So, we’ve made the brand’s new slot called Mechanical Clover. The steampunk style is very interesting for its great details.

“Thinking over the elements of the game, we immediately came up with interesting mechanics for animations!” – Aleksey Ulanov, art director at BGaming.

Legendary Sumo – Endorphina

Join an elite division of sumo wrestlers and experience the ancient Japanese sporting tradition in Endorphina’s latest slot.

Legendary Sumo, a five-reel, three-row video slot, offers players 21-paylines along with a free games mode and multipliers.

If the player lands three or more scatter symbols on the reels, they will trigger the free games mode. Yet, if luck is on their side, landing five scatters will award 50 free spins.

After each, a winning sumo fighters team is determined. The player will be victorious once their symbol covers the majority of the reels. Each fighter in the winning team is awarded with a golden trophy, transforming them into a joker.

During the next spin, any fighters stopping in the same position as the trophy inherits the trophy and the joker’s functions.

Additionally, the title comes with a risk game which allows players to double their outcome on any bet win, which can be triggered up to 10 times.
