Tom Horn Gaming, Play’n GO and Relax Gaming: On the spin – slots round-up

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 Tom Horn Gaming’s Belarusian-inspired slot, Play’n GO’s fantasy sequel and Yggdrasil’s latest collaboration with Peter & Sons

GEMiX 2 – Play’n GO

Play’n GO has released a sequel to its GEMiX title as players return to the fantasy world which reveals a fourth realm up in the clouds in its 7×7 tile, including four different Crystal Charge effects. 

During the base game in Play’n GO’s latest slot, wins are achieved by landing five or more symbols in a cluster. These are removed and new symbols fill up the grid as cascades continue until no more wins can be created. 

All wins during a game round contribute to increasing the Crystal Charge meter. When the first half of the meter is fully charged by 25 winning symbols and there are no more cascades, the Crystal Charge effect is activated, triggering one of the following effects:

Chain Lightning: Two corner symbols shoot out an electrical arc hitting symbols. These symbols are transformed into one of the corner symbols.

Light Beam: Light rays shoot out vertically and horizontally from a symbol on the grid. All symbols in the affected column and row are transformed to other symbols.

Crystal Warp: A symbol is selected on the grid. The selected symbol and all matching symbols are warped to other symbols.

Nova Blast: A symbol is selected on the grid and explodes. Adjacent symbols are removed from the grid in a seven symbol diameter explosion, leaving behind a cluster of core symbols. This core consists of the same symbol.

“We’re excited to expand the GEMiX World – and we know players will be excited too,” commented Play’n GO’s head of games, Charlotte Miliziano. “The potential to introduce new characters and worlds is limitless. It allows us to play with new features and develop innovative ways to immerse players in the world of GEMiX.”

Beastie Bux – Tom Horn Gaming

Tom Horn Gaming has taken inspiration from an old Belarusian banknote set with its most recent title, Beastie Bux – a 5×3, five-payline slot which includes a 243 respin feature. 

The wild symbol within the title is a joker and substitutes for all symbols. In the base game, when a Wild243 symbol lands on the second, third and fourth reel, the game transforms to a criss cross mode with five win lines changing to 243 ways and a respin feature that helps boost the player’s wins. 

Winning combinations explode and leave space for new symbols and another respin. The win multiplier increases with every new respin, starting with x1, until it reaches the maximum of x5 multiplier.

“It’s great to be able to experiment with different designs and narratives to impress our players,” commented Ondrej Lapides, CEO at Tom Horn Gaming. Beastie Bux offers beastly entertainment with great prizes. The theme is based on the old Belarusian banknotes, which the locals affectionately refer to as Зайчики (bunnies).

“We entered the Belarusian gaming market a year ago in a quest to supply high quality localised products that meet the highest international standards. Beastie Bux combines a local concept with globally popular mechanics introduced in our blockbuster 243 Crystal Fruits. It has fantastic win potential and we believe it will become an instant hit with players in Belarus and beyond.”

Robin – Nottingham Raiders – Yggdrasil and Peter & Sons

Yggdrasil has joined forces with Peter & Sons as the two venture into the world of Robin Hood and his merry men in Robin – Nottingham Raiders – a 5×4, 20-payline slot featuring 12 base game symbols, free spins bonuses and special wilds. 

The game takes place in the city of Nottingham where Robin and his band of outlaws prepare to raid the rich tyrants to give their loot to the poor.

A free spins feature is triggered when three or more scatter symbols land on the reels, awarding players with up to 15 free spins. In addition, wild symbols can randomly transform into special wilds which are collected in a meter with nine slots. A respin is triggered when the meter has been filled, throwing all wilds randomly off the grid. 

In free spins mode every three special wilds collected triggers three extra free spins. During the rounds, the wilds roam into new positions with every spin.

“Peter & Sons’ latest addition to the YG Masters portfolio brings the famous Robin Hood and his band of brothers alive on the slot screen for another thrilling adventure,” said Stuart McCarthy, head of product and programs at Yggdrasil.

“Following the success of our initial Robin Hood title we are excited to introduce the sequel which offers an abundance of features, great excitement and huge win potential,” commented Yann Bautista, business development manager at Peter & Sons.

Chip Spin – Relax Gaming

Relax Gaming has gone all-in on its latest poker-themed slot title Chip Spin – a 5×5, 259-ways to win slot which includes a free spins mode that adds an array of features depending on the chip colour and the Chip Spin bonus mode.

Within the base game, if the player lands three or more bonus symbols it triggers the free spins bonus round, where different chips have an array of features – green chips award an added spin, purple chips add a plus one multiplier and black chips convert to sticky wilds.

Starting the Bonus Game with one life, the player’s chips are sticky and keep the reels spinning until no new chips land on the screen and no lives are left, making for a hugely exciting casino experience. 

“I think it’s fair to say that we’ve dealt operators a winning hand with this game,”  noted Simon Hammon, CPO at Relax Gaming.Our development team has done a great job in creating a game that stands out among the competition.

“Chip Spin not only avails itself of a timelessly popular poker theme that we know resonates well with players, but it’s a great slot experience in its own right, with a host of engaging features ready to wow our fans the world over.”
