Floating Dragon Hold and Spin – Pragmatic Play
This Asian-themed, 3×5 slot becomes the latest introduction by Pragmatic Play, which comes with three separate triggerable modes.
The first is the fish money feature, which sees each fish symbol have a cash value attached and can be collected if the lady lands on the reels. If multiple lady symbols land, then the value is multiplied by the number of them.
To trigger the free spins mode, three or more scatters must land on the reels. With four stages possible to progress through in the bonus round, players must land ladies on the reels, which continue to collect fish as in base play.
If four or more ladies are on the reels at the same time, players will progress to the next round. If no fish land on a spin, then a firecracker will be thrown onto the reels, guaranteeing a winning spin.
The hold and spin mode is initiated if a stack of three coin symbols land on the central reel, which then sees them remain on the grid as the four remaining reels rotate in search of more coins. Players get three respins, which can reset if a coin is found on a spin, while there is a minimum guarantee of 20x a player’s stake awarded during the mode.
“We’re consistently looking for innovative new additions to our portfolio and are thrilled to launch our newest hold and spin hit.
“Our entire product portfolio continues to grow at an impressive rate as we look to continue to expand globally, with this release marking another positive step for us.” – Yossi Barzely, chief business development officer at Pragmatic Play.
Golden Castle Titanways – Fantasma Games
Golden Castle Titanways is a 6×6 reel video slot that takes players to the haunted remains of a gilded castle, where they must seek out hidden treasures. They are helped in their quest with three bonus features – titanways, wild haunt and phantom free spins.
The game also boasts an avalanche feature that sees winning symbols removed from the reels and new symbols fall into their place. Symbols come in five different sizes – 1×1, 1×2, 1×3, 2×2 and 3×3 but a symbol’s height has no impact in its value.
Titanways is a system that intermingles these oversized symbols to create varying wins and volatility with each spin. A win occurs when three or more identical symbols land on consecutive reels from left to right. The win is multiplied by the number of winning symbols per reel.
If three or more ghost king symbols land during the base game, the wild haunt feature is triggered. Once active, one non-1×1 symbol is selected and it is broken down into multiple 1×1 symbols of the same kind which may randomly be upgraded into wild symbols.
If players collect three or more bonus symbols during the base game, ten phantom free spins are awarded. There is also a win multiplier that starts at x1 and is increased by one after each avalanche.
“Golden Castle is the first title to feature our innovative and revolutionary titanways mechanic which provides an entirely new ways to win system for a unique player experience.
“We believe that driving innovation in mechanics is the best way to create slots that are compelling and entertaining for both experienced casino players as well as a new generation of player trying online gambling for the very first time.
“Golden Castle Titanways has the hallmarks of a truly great game and we look forward to seeing it hit operator lobbies and for players to enjoy their first Titanways spins and wins.” – Fredrik Johansson, Commercial Director at Fantasma Games.
