Hacksaw Gaming, Kalamba Games and Stakelogic: on the spin – slots round-up

We take a look at Evoplay’s wild reels, Betsoft Gaming’s Japanese adventure, Pragmatic Play’s Heist and Wazdan’s magic spins.

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 Hacksaw Gaming’s Japanese inspired title, Yggdrasil’s African collaboration with Jade Rabbit Studio, Kalamba Games’ Greek goddess of love slot and Stakelogic and Hurricane Games’ pirate adventure. 

Jambo Cash – Yggdrasil & Jade Rabbit Studio

Yggdrasil, in collaboration with Jade Rabbit Studio, invited players on an African adventure with its most recent addition to its vast catalogue of slots with Jambo Cash, a 6×4, 4,096-payline title. 

Featuring various modes such as bonus games, free spins, multiplying wilds and instant prize symbols, Jambo Cash is set where the jungle meets the savannah and includes “fearsome masks” acting as the highest paying symbol within the slot. 

During the base game, if a wild mark appears it will reveal a multiplier between x1 and x5. Moreover, if multiple wilds are involved in one win, they will link together before multiplying the payout. 

If three bonus symbols land on the reels, the free spins mode is triggered, where players face an interactive choice of more free spins or more low paying symbols converted to instant prize symbols, as well as a random configuration.

“Jambo Cash is a well-crafted slot with an engaging theme, immersive gameplay and the potential for big cash prizes on every spin,” commented Stuart McCarthy, head of product and programs at Yggdrasil

“The purpose of the YG Masters program is to bring diverse and innovative content to the wider market and we’re delighted to do that with this latest hit, in partnership with Jade Rabbit.”

“From Wild multipliers to Instant Prize symbols and action-packed free spins, Jambo Cash brings huge levels of excitement to players,” added Roger Admeus, managing director at Jade Rabbit Studio. “We continue to work hard to create entertaining gaming experiences and we’re very pleased to roll out this thrilling new hit.”

Toshi Video Club – Hacksaw Gaming

Hacksaw Gaming delved into the characteristics of Japanese culture in its latest slot incarnation Toshi Video Club, a 5×5, 15-payline slot which includes various variants of a Daruma symbol. 

During the game, every time a Daruma symbol lands on the reels with a winning combination, the Daruma will reveal a value that will be applied to the payout.

The current multiplier is placed at the top of the screen. Then, if a cascade occurs and a new Daruma appears, his new multiplier is added to the total at the top of the screen – unless the green Daruma lands. Then, he multiplies the player’s multiplier.

The Daruma symbol comes in small, medium, big and green forms which offer various multiplier effects.

When the player lands three free spin symbols, they trigger the bonus round. During this bonus, the multipliers that are accumulated will not reset after each spin. So, they’ll keep adding up over the course of the Toshi Video Club free spins bonus.

Pearls of Aphrodite – Kalamba Games

Guided by the Greek goddess of love, Kalamba Games invited players on an underwater venture in Pearls of Aphrodite, a 5×4, 40-payline title which includes the studios’ HyperBet and HyperBonus mechanics.

Moreover, the title features ocean respins, expanding multiplier wilds and locking multiplier wilds.

Powered by Oryx Gaming, the title is set in Aphrodite’s underwater palace, offering an ocean respins feature with expanding multiplier wilds which can be triggered by landing silver or gold dove medallions. 

The pearl collection feature in the base game can increase the numbers of expanding multiplier wilds that are offered in the ocean respins mode. The free spins feature is triggered when three mirror symbols land. 

“Pearls of Aphrodite is an engaging, enjoyable blend of captivating visuals and great features that puts players at the heart of one of mythology’s greatest stories,” noted Alex Cohen, COO and co-founder of Kalamba Games.

Wild Bounty – Stakelogic and Hurricane Games

Stakelogic set sail on a swashbuckling adventure with Hurricane Games as it hailed ahoy in its latest addition to its portfolio of slots with Wild Bounty, a 5×3, 20-payline title which includes features set to “shiver timbers”.

Including modes such as the bonus wheel and free spins mode, along with a Wild Bounty Links round, within the titles base game, players can land the cannon scatter which adds between one and three bombs to their collection meter, sitting above the reels. 

Collecting three cannon bombs above any of the reels triggers wild stacks, where all symbols on that reel will be wild for the next three spins. If the player completes another bomb collection while wild stacks are active, the counter resets to three.

The bonus wheel feature sets sail when three bonus scatters land in the base game. It then spins and stops on a segment where it will award free spins, Wild Bounty Links or a minor, grand or major prize.

During the free spins mode, the reels change to a 5×6 matrix with 50-paylines with bomb collections and wild stacks carried over from the base game

The Wild Bounty Links bonus sees the reels transition to a 3×5 grid with 15 symbol spaces. Three coin icons are awarded and sit above the reels before the reels start to spin.

Treasure symbols can land on all 15 spaces but if no treasure lands, then one of the coins is removed and the spins remaining counter reduces by one.

If treasure does land, the symbol sticks to the reels and the coin symbols and spins counter reset to three. The feature ends when there are no coin icons left.

Moreover, a Wild Bounty Pirate stands at the side of the reels – randomly throwing barrels onto the reels which in turn awards one of three bonuses, including random wilds, bombs and pick a barrel.

“Wild Bounty is our take on the popular pirate theme and with this game we have taken the thrills and excitement to the next level,” said Salvatore Campione, head of Greenlogic at Stakelogic.

“The slot is packed with explosive bonus features including Free Spins, Wild Stack, a Bonus Wheel and of course our innovative Super Stake system.

“This, combined with bold and striking animations, helps players to set sail in search of big wins and a fun and exciting online slot adventure.”
