This week's on the spin includes titles from Lucksome, Relax Gaming, Play’n GO and iSoftBet’s latest Hold & Win game. 

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 Nolimit City’s mental reels, Play’n Go’s Egyptian slot, iSoftBet’s legendary title, and Yggdrasil, Games Lab and ReelPlay’s Towering Pays slot. 

Mental – Nolimit City

Malta-based software provider Nolimit City “breaks all barriers” as it launches Mental. 

The title features a 3-2-3-2-3 reel-set area which offers 1,024-paylines – which increases with added xWays – along with a Lobotomy free spin which awards a Mental Transform for each spin.

Chances of wins are boosted whenever four or six fire frames appear, if players collect three scorpion symbols they unlock a bonus mode with sticky Fire Frames which can be upgraded to Lobotomy or Mental Free spins – all these features combined can deliver x66,666 bet win potential.

Next up would be the Autopsy free spins, which awards eight spins when three Scorpion symbols land on reels one, three and five. Moreover, if a Scorpion lands on a Fire Frame, it adds an additional spin. 

The most lucrative bonus is triggered from the main game if three Scorpion symbols and two Spider symbols hit, awarding 10 spins. During this mode, both Spider’s are sticky, triggering Mental Transformations on each spin. 

“This is a title that’s been discussed quite a lot internally, it’s darker than our usual subject matter and far more grittier than anything we’ve ever come up with. 

“We wanted complex mechanics, mind-numbing potential and truly worthy of the name Mental.” commented Per Lindheimer, product owner at Nolimit City.

Sisters of the Sun – Play’n Go

Harness the powers of Ra, the Egyptian Sun God, as Play’n GO casts a light and fortune on the favoured in this 5×5, cluster pays slot which includes both a Goddess Power and Sisterhood feature mode, along with a free spins round. 

Within the base game, wins are achieved by landing three or more symbols in a row, either horizontally or vertically. Winning symbols within the combination are removed and the remaining symbols drop into the empty spaces to potentially create new wins.

Furthermore, the wild symbol within the game substitutes for all symbols except the scatter. These wilds can only be created; appearing in the middle when a winning combination of three symbols is removed. 

On each spin, five random grid locations are marked with the Eye of Ra. The win multiplier increases by one when winning over an eye location; resetting before each new spin.

The title Goddess Power feature is triggered at random on a non-winning spin. Depending on the active goddess shown on-screen, a unique ability is performed to help create a win. 

If Sekhmet appears, it converts one set of symbols into another. Alternatively, Hathor adds one or two wild symbols to the grid. Finally, Bastet removes two sets of symbols. 

Within the Sisterhood feature, which is triggered by land one scatter symbol, one free round is awarded and the win multiplier is reset.

A Goddess Power is performed on each symbol drop that does not provide a winning combination, until all three goddesses have performed their respective ability. 

Before the free spins round commences, players must choose one of the three goddesses who carry different variations of spins.

Sekhmet awards four initial spins; Hathor awards five and Bastet awards eight spins. The win multiplier is carried over from the Sisterhood feature, only resetting once the feature is over. 

During Free Spins, the number of Eye of Ra locations increases from five to 10 and the chosen Goddess Power is triggered on every non-winning spin.

“The regal nature of Ancient Egypt narratives, gods and pharaohs continue to be a favourite amongst players as the content is so rich.

“There are so many gods, goddesses and pharaohs that we haven’t heard of. Maybe we’ll be the ones to tell their stories in our games,” said head of games at Play’n GO, Charlotte Miliziano.

Legend of the Four Beasts – iSoftBet

iSoftBet has invited players to embark on a mythological adventure in this 5×3, 243-payline video slot with features such as multiple types of wilds, free spins and an Ultra Bet feature.

In the game, players will come across fearsome dragons, phoenixes, tigers and more upon the reels, as well as multiple types of wilds along with jade and gold Scatter symbols. 

Starting off with blue wilds, these will only land on reels three, four and five, expanding both vertically and horizontally, forming multiple wilds. These can substitute for all symbols except the scatter.

Moreover, if three, four or five of the scatter symbols land, then players are awarded 10, 15 or 20 free spins, respectively. Here, golden wilds will expand both ways while also increasing a multiplier by one, with an unlimited max potential – free spins can also be retriggered. 

Additionally, in certain jurisdictions where it is permitted, players can enjoy the Ultra Bet feature. With this, they can buy 50 rapid spins, before a cumulative prize is awarded for any wins of that spin, while stars can also be collected to award a bonus cash prize.

“Legend of the Four Beasts sees us venture into mythology again in search of huge wins, this time facing off against fearsome creatures of Chinese legend. With two types of expanding Wilds, increasing multipliers and the Ultra Bet mechanic, we’re giving players a huge array of tools so that any spin can lead to plentiful riches,” said Mark Claxton, head of games at iSoftBet.

Towering Pays Valhalla – Yggdrasil, Games Lab and ReelPlay

Slot content publisher Yggdrasil has collaborated with Games Lab and YG Masters partner ReelPlay to launch this Norse-inspired title.

Tasked with ascending to the majestic halls of the Viking afterlife, this 5×3 slot progresses from 15 to 65-paylines by utilising Games Lab’s Towering Pays mechanic.

Within the base game, towers appearing on reels one, two and three, trigger a row expansion, with players offered a bonus feature for repeating the behaviour when they have progressed to grid. They will then have a choice to take the feature or reject it for a further offer later. 

Whenever at least one tower appears in the active grid, on each reel that has tower symbols, play progresses to the next stage. Each adds one additional two and 10 extra paylines. 

Stage progression continues in a similar fashion until there are five reels and eight rows in play. At the end of the free spins, or when a free spin feature is rejected, the Stage Play is reset. 

With four separate bonus game free spins modes – Valkyrie, Loki, Thor and Odin; there are numerous options for players to win big. In the most lucrative – Odin free spins, towers may appear on all reels offering huge win potential.

Within the Valkyrie free spins mode, the player is awarded seven free spins, during which a prize multiplier may occur on any win. In addition, one extra free spin is awarded whenever at least one tower appears in the active grid on each of reels one, two and three. 

Alternatively, in the Loki version, again, seven free spins are awarded yet a prize multiplier is guaranteed to occur on any win. Moreover, in the Thor variation towers may appear on reels one, two, three and four.

In certain jurisdictions free spins are also available to purchase, with players able to select their buy-in level for enhanced chances at triggering the optimal bonus mode.

Towering Pays Valhalla sees a brand-new mechanic brought to our YG Masters program with an iconic theme beloved by slot players everywhere.

“The YG Masters program was devised to bring innovation and excitement to players from studios everywhere, and we’re thrilled to be able to launch this new hit,” noted Stuart McCarthy, head of product and programmes at Yggdrasil.

“We’re delighted to help bring to market Games Lab’s latest Towering Pays game with our partners at Yggdrasil. 

“Valhalla is a game that develops over spins with its increasing reel matrix and multiple feature offerings, and builds on Games Lab’s recent successful launches via YG Masters such as Royal Dragon Infinity Reels,” added David Johnson, CEO of ReelPlay.
