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.
3 Clown Monty – Play’n Go
The circus rolls into town with Play’n Go’s 3 Clown Monty, a 5×3, 10-payline slot, which follows the three Monty brothers – Bumbo, Schmucky and Whatda – who decided to start a business as clowns with no discernible talent.
Within the base game, when the multiplier meter becomes active, the wilds become multiplier wilds, with any wins involving the wild becoming increased by multipliers between x2 to x25.
The scatter symbol is the gateway to many of the titles features. If two land on any of the five reels, the dealer’s choice feature is activated, while three or more trigger free spins.
Additionally, three or more scatters activate the bonus mode via a pick-me style bonus feature, where players are awarded five to 12 free spins. During this round, the multiplier meter is always active, and wilds are always multiplier wilds.
“Storytelling is the basis of any great form of entertainment, and we are entertainers. But for a story to engage, it has to bring something different to the table.
Whether that is a totally new idea or an interesting twist on a familiar tale, you have to be creative and spend time shaping it and fleshing it out, or it won’t work. We are trying to tell great stories that accentuate our games and give players even more.” – Charlotte Miliziano, Play’n Go’s head of games.
Book of Inti – Golden Rock Studios
Golden Rock Studios, in collaboration with partners Microgaming, introduces Book of Inca, a 5×3, 10-payline video slot which revolves around the special book symbol, which can unlock the free spins mode and includes a prize wheel and a special expanding symbol.
One of the various roles of the book symbol is that of a wild. It can land anywhere on the grid to replace any symbol to complete a winning line, except during the free spins feature.
Moreover, if the player lands between three to five books on one spin, it triggers the free spins bonus game, and awards the player with a minimum of eight spins. Before the mode commences, the game spins a three-ringed prize wheel which may enhance the round.
The outer ring of the wheel displays the pay symbols and whatever tile is chosen, that symbol will then become the special expanding symbol. Moreover, if the wheel lands on the golden segment, players move onto the next ring.
Meanwhile, the middle ring offers two to 15 extra free spins, while the inner ring removes one pay symbol from the reels.
Legend of Athena – Red Tiger
Step into the Colosseum and battle for Grecian glory in Red Tiger’s Legend of Athena, a 5×3, 10-payline video slot which includes the spear of Athena wild, along with a battle spins mode which awards free spins.
The low paying symbols within the title are the traditional 10-A card symbols with the high value symbols consisting of horn cups, pots, harps and helmets. If a player lands a full line of five premium symbols between 24 to 200x, the player’s stake is awarded.
During the base game, when the spear of Athena wild appears and contributes to a win line, a 3x win multiplier will be applied.
Furthermore, when three scatter symbols appear on the first, third and fifth reel, the battle spins bonus round will be triggered, featuring 12 free spins. During battle spins, all wins will have a 3x multiplier applied. Should a scatter land during the battle spins feature, three additional free spins will be added.
Phoenix Forge – Pragmatic Play
Pragmatic Play invites players to undertake a quest for mystical riches in Phoenix Forge, a 5×3 slot that features a search for the ancient and legendary phoenix, with the 20-payline game featuring tumbling reels, with a built-in multiplier system for heightened wins.
During the game, every time a symbol is part of a winning line, it will be removed from the reels, with an increasing multiplier being activated in the empty spot before new symbols tumble down to fill it. Every successful cascade that fills that spot will see the multiplier count increase by 1x on that spin.
If three or more phoenix scatter symbols land on a single spin, the free spins mode is triggered. During this round, all multipliers that occur remain sticky on the reels throughout, meaning the more tumbling wins that a player gets, the higher the multipliers climb.
“Phoenix Forge takes a classic slot experience and adds tumbling wins to a 5×3 grid, as well as increasing multipliers for every successful cascade.
“Wins can be fast, furious, and huge in size and we’re delighted with our newest hit. We can’t wait to see how it is received by fans all over the world.” – Yossi Barzely, chief business development officer at Pragmatic Play.
