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 igaming titles grace the CasinoBeats inbox, sit back and get to grips with a select few new slot games as we take a look at OneTouch’s bank robbery, Leap Gaming’s 1980’s themed reels, Mancala Gaming’s fantasy slot and Pragmatic Play’s Mexican fiesta. 

Grand Heist – OneTouch

OneTouch invites players with nerves of steel to spin the reels of its latest slot in a bid to unlock the vault where prizes await in this 8×8, cluster-pays video slot with features including cascading wins, free games, multiplier wilds and giant symbols.

In the game, wilds substitute for all symbols and, when forming part of a win, will randomly move to an adjacent vacant position and become sticky for the next cascade. 

Moreover, each wild has a multiplier associated with it, which will increase by one for every cluster win it participates in. 

Furthermore, landing three or more wilds anywhere on the reels will trigger the free games feature. Here, moving sticky wilds stay on screen for the duration of the feature, which cannot be retriggered. 

“We’re really excited about this fast paced, high-stakes adventure where players will get the chance to break into a world of underworld activity to get their hands on some potentially enormous wins,” commented Petra Maria Poola, head of business development and operations at OneTouch. “It’s time to get cracking in one of our most breath-taking releases of 2021.”

GangStar – Leap Gaming

Leap Gaming challenges players to fight it out on the mean streets to become top dog in this 5×3, 20-payline video slot with features including free spins, mystery wins and a drive by shooting bonus. 

In the base game, to activate the drive by shooting bonus game, the player must collect six or more cash bags. Here, a respin round is awarded. Stake multiplier values which are shown on the bags will be added to the total win at the end of the respin round. 

The re-spin counter will be reset each time a new cash bag has been awarded and values of the cash bags may be increased during the randomly triggered shootout bonus, which occurs when shots are fired at the values. These shots will increase their multiplier values.

Furthermore, players can collect the mystery symbol to be awarded large cluster wins during the free spins game. Here, the mystery symbol will reveal the same value symbol on all positions where it lands, even wilds may be hidden in the mystery gift for some even bigger wins. 

Spirit of the Lake – Mancala Gaming

Discover the treasures hidden deep within the magical lake in this  5×4, 20-payline video slot with features including wild and scatter symbols, free spins and multipliers – but beware, as darkness and danger is lurking in the waters.

In the game, the wild snake symbol substitutes for all other symbols except for nymph scatter. It only appears in the base game and will increase the multiplier metre by one whenever three or more appear in a spin.

Moreover, the scatter water nymph is a non-paying symbol used for triggering the free spins feature. Three or more scatters appearing in a single spin will award a number of free spins in the bonus game when it is finally triggered. 

Moving on to the tree of life, this grows around the reels and will bloom one golden flower for every spin showing three or more scatters anywhere on the reels. After the ninth flower has bloomed and the tree reaches the crystal multiplier, the free spins feature game will be triggered automatically. 

The final number of free spins awarded will be determined by the total number of winning scatters that appeared in all spins leading up to the bonus game being triggered.

Big Juan – Pragmatic Play

Pragmatic Play invites players to join the fiesta in this 5×4, 20-payline video slot with features including a wild switch, a free spins bonus and four fixed jackpot prizes. 

Residing on the left-hand side of the screen, Big Juan overlooks the action of the game.

Including a wild switch feature to keep the party going, this ensures that when six or more of the same symbol lands across the second, third and fourth reels, all the symbols involved turn into wild symbols for bigger wins.

Another feature to watch out for is the free spins bonus. Landing the piñata symbol three to five times takes players to a 3×3 set of reels, providing them with 10 to 15 respins and a bag of coins symbol placed in the middle of the reels. Here, players can win extra spin symbols, coin symbols, or one the four fixed jackpots ranging from mini to grand, awarding players up to x2,500 their stake.

“We are back with another Mexican-themed adventure, following on from the popular Day of Dead,” commented Yossi Barzely, chief business development officer at Pragmatic Play.

“The joyful soundtrack and eye-catching animations on display in Big Juan provide a real feast for the senses, topped only by the huge win potential on offer in the Free Spins bonus round.”
