Inspired, ReelPlay, Skyrocket & Play’n GO: on the spin

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 Inspired Entertainment’s retro game, ReelPlay’s Mexican reels, Skyrocket Studios’ branded title and Play’n GO’s wild adventure.

Space Invaders – Inspired Entertainment

Inspired Entertainment takes players on a nostalgic journey with the launch of a mobile slot version of Taito’s out-of-this-world retro video game, Space Invaders.

This 5×3, 20-payline video slot comes with a maximum win potential of up to x1,250 the bet.

During the base game, a UFO may randomly fly over the top of the reels. A cannon appears beneath it shooting at it. If it hits, one of the five modifiers is activated.

In addition to these five modifiers, there are two more which may activate at random following losing base game spins.

Moving onto the bonus games, these are activated by landing three or more bonus coin scatters in the base game. Here, a feature wheel spins to award one of six games.

“Launched in the late seventies, Space Invaders was a pioneer in the video game industry, inspiring numerous game designs across an array of genres,” commented Steve Collett, chief product officer at Inspired. “Despite its maturity, it is still one of the most recognisable gaming brands of all time. 

“We are thrilled to bring this retro classic back to players with novel features including reel-enhancing modifiers, six exhilarating bonus rounds and a bonus gamble mechanic. 

“Space Invaders is set to become a memorable and player favourite slot game this season, and beyond.”

Money Mariachi Infinity Reels – ReelPlay

ReelPlay invites players to a Mexican adventure inspired by the Day of the Dead with this 3×4 video slot that comes with Infinity Reels and a maximum win potential of up to x50,000 the bet.

Starting with the Infinity Bonus, this awards a payout of x888 the bet if 12 or more reels are added in a single game round. This is paid on top of any other applicable win.

Meanwhile, level up respins are triggered whenever three or more shrine symbols are landed, awarding three respins.

Furthermore, on each respin, every shrine, booster, or charmer symbol gains a skull, levelling up each time one of them collects six skulls, with its prize increasing by x1 to x10 the bet.

American Gods – Skyrocket Studios

Feel the divine power in the battle between Old Gods and New Gods in  this 5×3-5, 20-40 payline video slot that comes with a maximum win potential of up to x4,800 the bet.

On any base game spin one of four mini features can be awarded. These will be played out on an expanded reel set of either 5×4 or 5×5.

The old Gods free spins round includes a wild symbols feature. With this, the player will begin the bonus by receiving one spin on the prize wheel, containing all the non-wild game symbols. The symbol on which the wheel settles will become wild for the rest of the feature and be added to the wild collection panel. 

Meanwhile, the new Gods free spins bonus features an accumulating multiplier. As with the other free spins bonus, players will begin by receiving one spin on the prize wheel. However, this wheel contains various multiplier values between x2 and x20. The value on which the wheel settles will be added to the total win multiplier shown in the small display panel. 

“American Gods is loved by audiences worldwide and we’re thrilled to be opening this up to new audiences through the gaming market,” noted Sean O’Kelly, Skyrocket CEO. “The first of many more super brands to come.”

Beasts of Fire – Play’n GO

Play’n GO has put its fiery spin on the studio’s classic Buffalo-theme slot with this 4×3-4, 12,348-payline video slot that comes with a maximum win potential of up to x25,000 the bet.

Starting with the buffalo stampede feature, during the base game, this may randomly trigger on any spin. When activated, the number of buffalo symbols on the reels is increased, thus increasing the hit rate and the chance of landing wins.

Meanwhile, landing a meteor respin symbol – which can only appear on reel three – triggers the respins feature. Here, the height of all reels increases by one, providing a greater chance of triggering a buffalo stampede. 

“We wanted to put our spin on a popular theme in the industry,” remarked Play’n GO’s head of games, Charlotte Miliziano. “We wanted to use otherworldly ways to add a new dimension to the Buffalos. In real-life these animals are fearsome, so what better way to add to their ferocity than adding a fiery element to their characters?

“The visuals work with Dynamic Payways to create pace within a game, just like the rush of a herd of buffalo hurtling towards you. This was what we wanted to replicate in Beast of Fire.”
