Hacksaw Gaming, iSoftBet, Play’n Go & Pragmatic Play: on the spin

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 iSoftBet’s crab title, a Inari version from Play’n Go, Pragmatic Play’s latest tricks and Hacksaw Gaming’s king of the crop. 

Tale of Kyubiko – Play’n Go

Play’n Go introduces the goddess Inari who casts her spell on players in Tale of Kyubiko, a 3×3, five-payline slot that offers a maximum win potential of x2,250 the bet. 

Inari’s Fortune, more commonly known as the nudge feature, may trigger when the stacked wild has partially landed on any reels. If the stacked wild covers the reel, Inari’s fortune will nudge the symbol to land fully on the reel.

Inari’s dance – known as the travelling wild – is triggered when the stacked wild lands and a winning combination is formed. The multiplier increases and the stacked wild travels to the next reel where an automatic spin is triggered. This cycle is repeated until no more wins are formed after the respin.

“Tale of Kyubiko is a fabulous example of high entertainment value,” explained Play’n Go’s head of games, Charlotte Miliziano. “There is a rich narrative that carries throughout gameplay; our clear focus on storytelling and creating the visuals to complement can be seen through Inari – players can physically see her shapeshift into her human form as they play. It’s very cool.”

Crabbin’ Crazy – iSoftBet

iSoftBet invites players to grab a rod and start fishing for riches in its latest title, Crabbin’ Crazy, a 5×3, 25-payline video slot that comes with a maximum win potential of up to x1,585 the bet.

On any base game spin, the fisherman can appear and award the Pick A Crab feature, where choosing one of the three crabs will trigger one of four modifiers: let’s catch crabs, bonus add, stacked wilds or win spin.

Landing five or more crabs on any spin will trigger the let’s go crabbin’ respins, awarding a Hold & Win style bonus with an initial three respins which will reset every time a new crab lands, with all crab values collected when the respins run out.

“Crabbin’ Crazy combines a fun theme with lucrative modifiers, multiple bonus rounds and clawsome win potential,” stated Mark Claxton, head of games at iSoftBet.

“We are always looking to add diversity to our slots offering and this is another exciting addition set to appeal to light-hearted slots fans across the globe.”

Magician’s Secrets – Pragmatic Play 

Learn the latest spells and tricks in Pragmatic Play’s Magician’s Secrets, a 6×4, 4,096-payline video slot that comes with a maximum win potential of up to x5,000 the bet.

Featuring a free spins bonus, activated when landing three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels, once triggered, players can choose from one of two options: expanding wilds, which awards 10 free spins; or sticky wilds, which awards eight free spins.

Additionally, landing four, five or six scatters in view awards players with x20, x200 or x2,000 their stake, respectively. 

In the expanding wilds bonus round, respins are triggered when wild symbols hit on reels three or four and expand. For each respin, a multiplier of x1 is added to the expanding wild and applied to any wins. Landing three or more scatters during the round awards an extra 10 spins.

“We are thrilled to be able to start the New Year as strongly as we ended it, with Magician’s Secrets setting the standard for what is to arrive over the next 12 months,” noted Yossi Barzely, chief business development officer at Pragmatic Play.

“The game is littered with wild symbols that can have a huge impact over the base game and the bonus rounds, so players can expect to enjoy a huge variety of different wins and multipliers.”

King Carrot – Hacksaw Gaming

Hacksaw Gaming has crowned its new ruler as it launches King Carrot, a 7×7, cluster-win slot that offers players a max win of x10,000 the original bet. 

Every time the player lands a King Carrot symbol a random lower paying symbol will be selected to be replaced. All symbols selected will be replaced by carrot symbols. Moreover, if players land multiple King Carrot symbols to replace more than one symbol in the same spin.

When a replacement happens, one to three Epic King Carrots have a chance to appear to replace an existing carrot symbol. Each Epic King Carrot triggers a multiplier that will drop on a randomly selected carrot. 

The multipliers will only affect a winning cluster of carrots and will multiply the win of the cluster with the multiplier value. If players land two or more multipliers on the same winning cluster, the value will be added and then multiplied up to x100 potentially.

Moreover, if the player lands three or more free spins symbols, the Carrot Carnage bonus game will commence. In addition to the above, the title includes a Bird Attack mode which happens when a bird shadow appears over the reels. The bird will sweep in and remove a row/column of symbols to make way for new ones to be dropped in.
