As a number of new gaming titles grace the CasinoBeats inbox, sit back and get to grips with a select few new slot games. In this latest entrant to the series we check out iSoftBet’s Wild West adventure, Aurum Signature Studios getting in the Halloween spirit, and Swintt taking on holidaying zombie hoards.
Zombies on Vacation – Swintt
Swintt‘s latest title, Zombies on Vacation, is a 5×3, 243-payline video slot with features including multiplier wilds, a screaming girl icon and free spin options.
In the game, food for thought is provided by the wild symbol, a cocktail stick-garnished brain served up on a silver platter, while the scatter icon features three undead arms bursting from the sand. Both symbols play a major role in how the slot’s free spins bonus round plays out.
In order to activate free spins, players will need to land at least three of the aforementioned scatter symbols starting from the left-most reel. When they do, they’ll be taken to a new screen where they’ll choose how many free spins they receive, with fewer spins being compensated by bigger prize multipliers.
Those who prefer a longer feature can go for 20 free spins with random multipliers of x2, x3 or x5 their win, while those taking a “go big or go home” approach can instead opt for the minimum of five free spins with multipliers of x10, x15 or x30 their win. The other options cover everything else in between and players can re-trigger the feature by landing three further scatters during the bonus.
Once they’ve picked their free spins option, players will need to look out for the wild symbol, as any wins completed using this zombie sharing platter will be boosted by one of the three possible multipliers. Additionally, landing the screaming girl icon on reels one and five will award an instant prize.
David Mann, chief commercial officer at Swintt, said: “Zombies on Vacation is a fresh new twist on the classic Halloween slot. With its gruesome graphics, signature sound and hair-raising bonus feature, we know players will have a scream taking it for a spin when it hits operator game lobbies this month.”
Van der Wilde and The Outlaws – iSoftBet
Head to the Wild West in iSoftBet’s latest adventure, a 5 reel, 10 payline slot follows an outlaw gang via a classic ‘Book genre’ style gameplay.
Wild scatters cause other symbols in the win to expand, causing heightened win potential, while providing the possibility of multiple expansions on a single spin.
When three or more scatters land on a single spin, a giant feature wheel is triggered, heralding the start of free spins. The wheel will decide a player’s spins, with one available for each of the four main characters.
During this mode, the chosen character will become a special symbol and will always expand to fill the reels when it forms a winning combination, regardless of whether a wild scatter is part of the win.
The feature wheel can also award super spins, which sees each character acting as the special symbol on their own reels, with four different games ongoing for huge win potential.
Mark Claxton, head of games at iSoftBet, said: “From the Outback to the Wild West in recent weeks for our games portfolio, Van der Wilde and The Outlaws brings a classic genre of gameplay back to fans across the globe.
“With massive win potential, expanding wins and exhilarating features, we’re extremely pleased to launch a Wild West adventure with plenty of thrills and spills.”
Wild Harlequin – Quickspin
Quickspin welcomes players to an independent circus where a talented magician owns the stage in Wild Harlequin, a 5×3, 10-payline game that includes features such as a free spins bonus, multipliers and nudging wilds.
This game is all about the wild harlequin symbol, appearing on all reels, substituting for all symbols, and always nudging to cover the reels.
Landing three or more wild harlequins will kick off the free spins bonus with 10 free spins. All triggering reels become magic reels, building up multipliers and awarding extra free spins along the way.
Any wild that lands on a magic reel will increase the win multiplier by one. Moreover, any win that includes a wild harlequin on a magic reel gets multiplied by that reel’s multiplier.
Magic multipliers are multiplied by each other, so if the player lands a wild harlequin on three magic reels with x3, x7, and x2, and a win involves all those reels, the total multiplier will be x42 (3 x 7 x 2).
Furthermore, each time a magic reel reaches a multiplier of x5 (x5, x10, x15, etc.), two extra free spins will be awarded.
Lastly, if a win reaches 30,000x bet, the bonus game will end and the player will be awarded this amount.
Evil Goblins xBomb – Nolimit City
Evil goblins are on the loose, and they’re eating their way through anyone that interferes, in Nolimit City’s latest igaming entrant, as the Malta-based studio aims to produce “one fiery release after another”.
Evil Goblins xBomb, a 6×3 slot with total max payout of 31,699x, features the xBomb mechanic, which the group says “makes another comeback in a bigger and better way”.
These remove adjacent symbols except scatters, dead wilds and resurrection wilds, and will increase the win multiplier by one. Each xBomb symbol will also add one row to the reel area, up to seven rows. All xBomb symbols will explode before the next cascade regardless if there is a win or not.
Per Lindheimer, product owner at Nolimit City, said: Naughty and packs a punch with xBomb and an increasing reel area along with its win multipliers. Evil Goblins will be an adventurous encounter with loads of exploding cascades and gnarly bonus modes.
Mega Moolah The Witch’s Moon – Aurum Signature Studios
Aurum Signature Studios is aiming players in the Halloween spirit with the 5×3, 25-payline Mega Moolah The Witch’s Moon.
In the game, scatters appear as the witch. Landing three or more scatters will activate 15 free spins. During the bonus, all wins are tripled in value. Moreover, players will also receive a win of x3, x20 or x100 their stake for three, four or five scatters in view, respectively. Free spins can be retriggered.
Furthermore, during the base game, the jackpot feature can be activated at any time. Here, players will be presented with a jackpot wheel for the player to spin, divided into segments for each jackpot prize. The lower the value of the jackpot, the more segments, with one segment on the wheel for the Mega.
The Mega Jackpot value starts at £1,000,000; Major Jackpot starts at £10,000; Minor Jackpot starts at £100; and Mini Jackpot starts at £10. If free spins and the jackpot bonus are won simultaneously, the former plays out first.
