Yggdrasil, Play’n Go & Blueprint Gaming: on the spin

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 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 Yggdrasil and G Games’ serene title, Yggdrasil and Boomerang Studios’ magical reels, Blueprint Gaming’s Irish slot and Play’n Go’s apocalyptic adventure.

Serendipity – Yggdrasil & G Games

The gentle breeze and cherry blossom will wash away players’ cares in the tranquil mountain valleys of this 5×3, 10-payline video slot with features including free spins, scatters, wilds and a wheel of fortune multiplier.

The orb represents the scatter symbol, and landing three to five of these will trigger 15 free spins. During the feature, landing three, four or five scatters will in addition pay an immediate win of x2, x20 and x200 the total bet, respectively.

Moving onto the wild symbol, this appears as lady luck and replaces any other symbol except the scatter, acting as a x2 multiplier to any win that it contributes to. 

Lastly, at the start of the free spins bonus, a x2 x3 or x5 multiplier will be selected by the multiplier wheel of fortune and the result be applied to all wins within the bonus game. 

“Following from our debut success Tiger Tiger, Serendipity offers an artfully crafted environment with big win potential. We continue to work closely with Yggdrasil to develop exciting, unique products and can’t wait to see how this title performs,” remarked Helen Walton, CCO at G Games.

Lady Merlin – Yggdrasil & Boomerang Studios

Yggdrasil and Boomerang Studios have rolled out an electrifying new hit with this 5×3-4, 432-payline video slot which incorporates a Lightning Chase mechanic and a Boom+ ante bet.

Featuring the Lightning Chase mechanic, this sees coils randomly land on the reels with a cash value. Should the player also land six or more coils, they’ll be awarded with the respins feature.

The dashing titular character acts as a wild, whilst a wild multiplier is also in play, starting at x2 in the base game. Utilising Boomerang’s Boom+ ante bet extends the suite of features. 

Moreover, in order to trigger the free spins mode, players must land three or more scatters, represented by Lady Merlin gazing into her orb. During the round, whenever a wild or scatter lands on the reels, the wild multiplier and free spins counters will increase by one for extended bonus game play and increased win potential.

“Following Boomerang’s recent classic-themed Joker slot, Lady Merlin is an exciting, feature-filled fantasy hit, showcasing the studio’s dynamic and creative remit,” remarked Stuart McCarthy, head of partner programs at Yggdrasil.

“With two types of bonus rounds, huge multiplier potential and an innovative art style, there’s lots to look forward to in our latest YG Masters release.”

Luck O’ the Irish Gold Spins – Blueprint Gaming

More treasure has been added to the pot in this 5x4x4, 40-payline video slot following the launch of Luck O’ The Irish Fortune Spins 2 earlier this year and ramping up the win potential with the all-new gold spins round.

To trigger the gold spins, players must land three bonus scatters. Here, only wilds and the three highest-paying symbols are in play, providing players with a far greater chance of a super-stacked win.

In addition, the dual-action gamble feature allows players to spin the wheel and gamble for a bigger cash prize or win up to 50 gold spins. 

Lastly, fortune spins present the chance to experience four spins simultaneously, with all wild symbols that land in view transferring to remaining reels.

“Our Luck O’ The Irish game family continues to resonate with a wide audience and so we’re delighted to introduce another action-packed, Irish-themed gaming experience,” said Jo Purvis, director of key accounts and marketing UK at Blueprint Gaming.

“Whilst retaining the key characteristics of the brand that players love, we’re hopeful that the new Gold Spins round and inclusion of the Dual-Action Gamble feature will make this our most entertaining Luck O’ The Irish release to date.”

The Last Sundown – Play’n Go

It’s the end of the world, Earth has become a wasteland and the fight to survive becomes increasingly tricky in this  5×3 video slot with 243-59,049 ways to win incorporating Dynamic Payways.

With just two bonus features to cover, on any base game spin, the splitting symbol feature may trigger. When activated, one symbol is randomly chosen to be the splitter. When any instance of this symbol type lands on the reels, it is split into two, increasing ways to win.

Moving on to the free spins feature, players must land three, four or five scatter symbols to trigger this, awarding eight free spins and a payout of x5, x10, or x50 the bet. 

Once triggered, one pay symbol is chosen to be a splitting symbol and one other regular pay symbol is selected for collection. Whenever the chosen collection symbol lands during the bonus, it fills the collector by one. 

“The inspiration for this game is from the ever-present problems that climate change presents and how society would have to deal with extreme weather conditions,” said Play’n Go’s head of games, Charlotte Miliziano. “The contrast of the scorching daytime heat to the freezing nights.

“This is our first game that focuses on a dystopian world; we wanted to create a game with really gritty characters that players could get excited about. We see Rae and Devin as the end of the world’s answer to Robin Hood.”
