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 Play’n Go’s Alice Cooper themed reels, Stakelogic’s Irish title, Arcadem’s action-packed adventure, Yggdrasil & Reel Life Games’ tropical slot and Belatra Games’ reels from the future.
Alice Cooper and the Tome of Madness – Play’n Go
Play’n GO delves into the dark realms of Alice Cooper’s psyche with this 5×5, fixed-payline video slot with features including cascading reels, a charge metre and four realities.
The aim of the game is to free Alice from his chains. To do this, players must get four or more connected symbols to create a cluster. Featuring cascading reels, winning symbols are removed for the grid allowing for new symbols to drop to refill it. This will continue until no new winning combinations can be created.
On a non-winning spin there is a chance to trigger one of the four realities: The insane asylum, the dungeon, the chamber of horrors and the temptation room.
Starting off with the insane asylum, this transforms all high-paying symbols into the same high-paying symbol, to create more chances of wins.
Moving on to the dungeon, this transforms all low-paying symbols into various high-paying symbols.
Meanwhile, the chamber of horrors destroys symbols to leave behind wilds.
Finally, the temptation room adds a wild to the grid and transforms all symbols into the same symbol.
When a key is collected it leaves behind a wild. Collect all three keys in a single spin to release Alice from his chains and achieve the Alice Cooper mega wild. The mega wild is added to either reels two, three, or four. Once landed, Alice will choose to walk either left or right and continues between cascades until it walks off the grid.
Moreover, winning symbols charge the Hat of Madness charge metre. If reality spins are triggered, the game transitions to the selection menu, where players must choose one of the four reality spins. The respective reality effect will be triggered at the end of each of the three reality spins.
“It was so exciting entering the theatrical – and macabre – world of Alice Cooper. We got to take elements of horror, vaudeville, and garage rock to create these epic worlds that Alice finds himself trapped in,” commented Play’n Go’s head of games, Charlotte Miliziano.
“We’re excited to continue expanding our ever-growing IP game portfolio and work with epic artists as they form the basis for great games that players adore.”
Lucky Gold Pot – Stakelogic
Join Stakelogic on a magical journey to the land of rolling green hills and frothy jugs of beer in this 5×3, 20-payline video slot with features including multiplier wilds, free spins and bonus games.
Alongside the top hats, four-leaf clovers and golden horseshoes, the symbol players really need to look out for in this game is the lucky leprechaun wild. When this mischievous she-elf appears on the reels, not only will she substitute for any regular symbol, but she’ll also double the value of any wins she completes.
Additionally, there’s the pot of gold scatter symbol. When three or more of these appear on the reels, players will be granted an initial 15 free spins, with the value of all wins during the feature being subject to a x3 prize multiplier.
Furthermore, the feature can be re-triggered indefinitely, with a further 15 free spins being added to the player’s total whenever three or more scatter symbols appear.
The game also features Stakelogic’s Super Stake mode. Purchasable for an additional side-bet, this feature gives players a shot at randomly triggering a further bonus feature.
Moreover, the game includes Stakelogic’s regular gamble feature, giving players the chance to boost their base game wins by guessing the colour or suit of a face-down playing card.
“In Lucky Gold Pot, we’re inviting players to join us on a magical journey to the Emerald Isle where big wins are never far away. With its free spins, multiplier wilds and popular Super Stake feature, the slot will be the jewel in the crown of our recent game launches and we can’t wait for players to find their fortune at the end of the rainbow,” said Olga Bajela, CCO at Stakelogic.
Guardians of Inari – Arcadem
Players fight alongside ‘Byakko’ and ‘Kitsune’ against the evil ‘Yakko’ in this 5×3, 25-payline video slot including features such as random wilds and two types of free spins.
In the base game, three random wilds may appear anywhere on the screen. These can replace any symbol except the scatter. Meanwhile, any reel can contain a scatter symbol.
Featuring two types of free spins, the player must land 10 good mask scatters to be collected over time for the free spins to be unlocked.
In the bonus, which offers 10 free spins, the fox and tanuki demons may be heard randomly fighting every spin. If this happens, one wild will be randomly added to the reels. On each subsequent fight, the number of wild symbols landing on the reels increases by one and the feature can only be triggered a maximum of five times per free spins round.
Moving onto the second free spins type, if the player has selected to also collect four evil mask scatters in a similar fashion to the good mask scatters, the bonus is unlocked with even more potential.
Like the other bonus, the player has 10 free spins and the fox and tanuki demons may be heard randomly fighting every spin. However, in this bonus, two wilds will be randomly added to the reels if the fight occurs, and on each subsequent fight the number of wild symbols landing on the reels increases by two.
“This is a great opportunity to introduce players who are new to Arcadem’s story-driven content. I’m sure the players at Soft2bet will love watching the defenders of Inari’s temple ‘Byakko’ and ‘Kitsune’ as they take the fight to the evil ‘Yako’ and her henchman,” commented Phillip Douglas, director of gaming at Arcadem.
Winfall in Paradise – Yggdrasil & Reel Life Games
Yggdrasil has linked up with Reel Life Games to take players to a majestic isle full of “huge riches” in this 5×4, 20-payline slot which includes a Bonus Wheel which can trigger three different features: Wave, Wind and Volcano.
Within the title, when a wheel symbol lands on the fifth reel, the Bonus Wheel is triggered. Once this happens, it will show three different bonus features which can be awarded in multiple combinations.
The Wave will see between two and 20 wilds added to the reels, with priority given to the first three reels, and at least two wilds will land in a row on these reels.
The Wind will select a random symbol, with every symbol of a lower value being replaced by the chosen one, for huge win potential. In addition, two wilds will be added to the reels.
The Volcano is a ‘win it again’ prize, set to a minimum 20x a player’s stake and growing with each win over that amount, for exciting win potential throughout base gameplay.
In addition to the above, the title also includes a free spins mode, activated by three golden turtle symbols landing on the reels. When activated, every free spins guarantees an increasing minimum win, along with potential modifiers through the bonus wheel.
“The idea of the YG Masters program was to bring exciting, innovative and truly unique content to the wider igaming community, and this is evident in the release of Winfall in Paradise,” commented Stuart McCarthy, head of product and programmes at Yggdrasil.
“With immersive gameplay, an array of modifiers and features and minimum guaranteed wins, there’s plenty for players to love in this island adventure.”
“We’re delighted to launch Winfall in Paradise across the Yggdrasil network. With striking artwork, a fun theme and huge win potential, it’s packed to the brim with mechanics and modifiers that will keep players returning again and again,” added Andy Kniaz, CEO at Reel Life Games.
Fortune Craft – Belatra Games
Online slots developer Belatra Games tempts players to foresee into the future with this 5×3 video slot featuring a scatter and wild symbol, free spins mode, risk game, a #CraftBonus round and a Wheel of Fortune.
Within the base game, if the witch has several magic balls, luck will be with the player. This is the scatter symbol. If three or more land on the reels, the free spins will be triggered.
During this mode, players can be awarded up to 130 free spins, with all winnings in this round automatically being multiplied by five.
The title also includes a Craft Bonus feature which allows players to buy a bonus game, whilst choosing different variations for the bonus drop. The value of the bonus will depend on the bet of the main game.
Alongside the above is a Risk Game. This mode can potentially double the player’s win after each victory. Activated after every base game win, players must guess the colour of the card to double their win.
“Fortune Craft will bring a smile to players’ faces and we’re predicting a great future thanks to the sharp design and immersive reels experience,” remarked Sergey Chernyavski, Belatra Games’ deputy director, sales and marketing.
