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 Stakelogic’s Expendables sequel, Wazdan’s delve into the underworld, a dark voyage from Relax Gaming and an NFT slot from Red Tiger.
The Expendables: New Mission Megaways
Embark on an action-packed adventure in Stakelogic’s sequel to its 2020 slot title with The Expendables: New Mission Megaways, a six-reel, 117,649-payline slot which includes free spins and mystery bonuses, along with Stakelogic’s Super Stake mechanic.
Implementing a high volatility, along with an RTP of 96.08 per cent, the title includes a free spins round which is triggered when three or more scatter symbols land anywhere on the reels.
Once appeared, players receive 12 free games plus five extra for any additional triggering scatter.
The Expendables: New Mission Megaways is locked and loaded with a mystery bonus that can trigger after any losing spin. It adds one or more mystery symbols to the reels while they are spinning.
Once the reels stop, they explode to reveal symbols and any winning symbols are removed from the reel window. There are four types of mystery bonus that are then awarded – free spins, extra wilds, matching symbols and wild multipliers.
“Woah! The Expendables: New Mission Megaways is undoubtedly our most action-packed game to date,” explained Olga Bajela, CCO of Stakelogic. “Not only does it use the Megaways engine but it comes with a war chest of bonus features to help players win big.
“This is the second The Expendables slot we have launched and following the success of the first title we expect this latest version to be just as popular with players seeking an action packed adventure when spinning the reels.”
Merging the crypto-space with the pixelated world, supplier Red Tiger has expanded its portfolio of slots with its NFT Megaways, a 6×7 title with 200,7040-paylines and also including a Crypto Punks Bar, Crypto Punks and free spins.
The aim of the NFT Megaways game is simple: Get the punks, win the cash! The CryptoPunks act as wild symbols that may land only on the CryptoPunks Bar and substitute for all paying symbols.
When a CryptoPunk lands on this bar and participates in a win with low-paying symbols, the CryptoPunk will collect them. This causes the CryptoPunk’s multiplier to increase by x1 for each low-paying symbol collected.
During NFT Megaways, the CryptoPunks multiplier can increase up to x30, and up to two CryptoPunks can land in the same spin. If two CryptoPunks participate in the same winning way, their multipliers are multiplied by each other.
“At Evolution we have a long record of innovation and being first with distinctively different new ideas. With all of our group brands our goal is always to offer players the most feature-rich and vivid gameplay possible,” claimed Todd Haushalter, Evolution’s chief product officer. “In essence, it’s all about creativity and originality and that’s why the CryptoPunks were such a great fit for us.
“Evolution is in a unique position to contribute to the crypto-community by taking the first NFT on Ethereum and featuring it in the world’s first NFT-based slot. One of the open questions in this community is how to display your NFTs and we thought this was a really fun way to do that, where there’s a chance for lots of players to admire them and also to interact with them in a completely new way! We are honoured to now be part of the crypto-asset history.
“NFT Megaways is a game that’s taken this crypto trend and transformed it into a form of entertainment – and it’s the first of its kind. Players have the chance to be a part of history in the making.
“As a game, it’s going to appeal to lovers of slot games everywhere, as well as bringing in those crypto fans who want to see a new way of using this CryptoPunk artwork. The team has done a brilliant job on this launch, and we’re looking forward to the game being live.”
