As a number of new gaming titles grace the CasinoBeats inbox, sit back and get to grips with a select few new slot games as we take a look at Black Gold 2 Megaways by Stakelogic, Yggdrasil’s Suncatcher Gigablox and Joe Exotic by Red Tiger.
Joe Exotic – Red Tiger
Red Tiger has rolled-out its latest igaming entrant in Joe Exotic, a 5×4, 20-payline slot with features including free spins, tiger bounty symbols and a country-themed playlist provided by Joe himself.
The game features an exotic spin, providing players with nine free spins when landing on the first, third and fifth reels. At the beginning of the mode, the centre reel will transform into a full reel Joe Exotic wild symbol, which comes with an increasing multiplier.
The Red Tiger game also features Tiger Bounty symbols, triggering a game of chance when players land on the same reels. Here, Joe Exotic’s co-star, Allen Glover, is presented with up to four offers from the Tiger King, where he randomly accepts one of 5x, 15x, 25x, or 50x the stake.
Lastly, the game includes an election time feature where characters run for president, rewarding players with cash pay-puts whenever they collect three votes. In addition, the dynamite feature will be triggered, replacing all low-paying symbols with high-paying ones.
Black Gold 2 Megaways – Stakelogic
Stakelogic brings back the richest oil tycoons in the West in Black Gold 2 Megaways, a 2×7 slot with a payline of up to 117,649, featuring bonus feature symbols, wilds and free spins.
In the game, players set up rigs and use dynamite to destroy the lower symbols, with a bonus eighth reel sitting at the top of the seven main reels.
When a bonus feature symbol lands in the centre of the bonus reel, it triggers the valves from the pipe to open up, spilling oil onto the main reels. Reels that are struck by the oil receive a bonus which is indicated by the landed bonus feature symbol.
When four or more scatter symbols land, the player receives a free spins bonus which has a multiplier that stays active for its duration. Players are also given the chance to decide the number of free spins they would like, as well as the size of the starting multiplier.
In addition, the gold rush bonus feature gives players three respins which reset when the bonus symbols drop. Bonus symbols have multipliers that continue to add up for the length of the feature.
“We have packed the game with features that will help players in their quest to find oil and secure their own riches, including free spins, respins and multipliers.
“This is a hugely exciting slot that offers plenty of ways to win with every spin – we think it has the potential to be even more popular than the original thanks to the thrilling gameplay.” – Olga Bajela, CCO at Stakelogic.
Suncatcher Gigablox – Yggdrasil
Yggdrasil has unveiled Suncatcher Gigablox, a 5×3, 10-payline slot with features including the Gigablox mechanic and a wild respins feature.
On each spin, at least one set of synced reels will create big blocks of symbols of up to 3×3 in size. The game also features a big sparkly diamond symbol which, when it lands, a wild symbol will expand and stick to all positions on its reel, triggering a respin.
The expanding wild symbol can appear on any reel and is worth a payout of 50x the bet for five of a kind.
The grid can also become filled with wild symbols, which, rather than being awarded with a respin, an additional 500x the bet is provided in addition to the regular win.
“We’ve worked extremely hard to incorporate our GigaBlox mechanic into products that appeal to all fans and we’re very pleased to launch Suncatcher GigaBlox.
“For players who enjoy smooth gameplay, it’s an immersive journey through the stars in search of huge wilds and even bigger symbols.” – Stuart McCarthy, head of product and programs at Yggdrasil.
Diamond Link: Mighty Emperor – Greentube
Greentube has released its fourth title within the Diamond Link series, with Diamond Link: Mighty Emperor including an enhanced hold n spin mechanic, along with wild, sticky and colossal spins.
During the game, players must fill up the Diamond meter – located at the top of the screen. Once six diamonds are collected, the Diamond Link feature is activated. Within this mode, players are awarded with three free spins, with every additional diamond symbol that lands resetting the counter back to three. If the player is able to fill the entire reel set with diamonds, then they win the grand jackpot.
Furthermore, if the scatter symbol – the diamond with a wild spin logo – lands on the reels, a free spin is awarded with a guaranteed win. During the spin, a random number of wild symbols are randomly distributed across the reels to help complete winning combinations.
Moreover, if the scatter lands with a sticky spin logo, all winning symbols are locked in place and the reels spin again. This repeats until the entire reel set is filled with a winning combination.
Alternatively, another variation is the colossal spin logo. Once this lands, a free spin is awarded, during which the middle three reels show a giant symbol that covers a 3×3 position, while reels one and five spin again.
“This beautifully designed game transports players to a mystical, ancient realm and offers the chance to win major prizes.
“Within the attractive packaging is a game of real depth. Diamond Link: Mighty Emperor takes the hugely popular hold n spin feature to the next level and we are excited to see how players react to the evolved mechanic and the opportunities it presents.” – Boro Brumen, head of games product at Greentube.
