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 Stormcraft Studios’ Jurassic adventure, Pragmatic Play’s mighty reels, iSoftBet’s dig for riches and Armadillo Studios’ Egyptian quest.
Jurassic Park: Gold – Stormcraft Studios
‘Life finds a way’ in this 5×4-8, 40-payline video slot that incorporates a maximum win potential of up to x8,000 the bet.
In the base game, the hunt is on for enormous jackpot prizes in the Link&Win bonus feature, activated by collecting six or more powerball symbols. Once triggered, the reel array expands up to 5×8, with more and more powerballs unlocking additional rows.
Should the player fill the entire grid with 40 powerball symbols, they’ll be awarded the jackpot prize of x8,000 the bet.
“In true Stormcraft Studios style, the team behind Jurassic Park: Gold have done an amazing job of delivering an immense blockbuster game that lives up to its namesake,” commented David Reynolds, Head of Games Strategy and Partner Management at Microgaming.
“Building on the classic dinosaur-themed slot with some exciting new additions such as the Link&Win mechanic, this latest instalment is sure to draw the same appeal as the epic original.”
Might of Ra – Pragmatic Play
Pragmatic Play welcomes players to the sun-scorched reels in this mighty 6×4, 50-payline video slot that incorporates a maximum win potential of up to x22,500 the bet.
In order to activate the free spins bonus, players must land three or more bonus symbols during the base game, awarding 15 initial spins.
During the round, a new symbol – the ankh – appears. Collecting these symbols during the round will upgrade the reel strips: level one sees 54 wild symbols on the reel strips when the round starts; with level two, when five ankhs are collected, 12 more wild symbols are added to the reel strips; with level three, when 10 ankhs are collected, 12 more wilds symbols are added to the reel strips; and with level four, when 15 or more ankhs are collected, 24 more wild symbols are added to the reel strips.
“Filled to the brim with extensive bonus features and modifiers, Might of Ra provides players with free spins and the opportunity to trigger big wins,” commented Yossi Barzely, Chief Business Development Officer at Pragmatic Play.
“Ancient Egypt remains a very popular theme with players, and we wanted to bring something exciting and new to operators and fans alike.”
Gold Digger Megaways – iSoftBet
iSoftBet has opened up a brand new mine where players see the return of Gold Diggin’ Gus accompanied by his canine companion, Boomer, in this 6×2-7, 117,649-payline video slot that incorporates an extra tracker reel and cascading wins.
In the game, should the player land five or more gold nuggets on a single spin, they will trigger the Hold & Win respins, awarding an initial three spins, which will reset every time a new symbol lands.
During this mode, different coloured reel boosters can also appear, with blue symbols increasing the reel size, green boosting all values in view, red adding extra lives and purple increasing the win multiplier. Also during this feature, faithful dog Boomer can appear to add an extra gold nugget or reel booster.
“Gold Digger became an immediate hit when we launched it a couple of years ago, and we are thrilled to welcome it back to our portfolio with more features and more ways to win than ever before,” remarked Mark Claxton, Head of Games at iSoftBet.
“The Megaways mechanic allowed us to include cascading wins, while the Hold & Win bonus round, with Reel Booster modifiers, means lucrative wins can be found in every seam of this golden hit.”
Queen of Egypt: Exotic Wilds – Armadillo Studios
Armadillo Studios takes players to Ancient Egypt with the launch of this 5×3, 243-payline video slot that incorporates a maximum win of up to x2,500 the bet.
In order to trigger the free spins bonus, players must land three or more free spins symbols during the base game. Here, they’ll be presented with a selection of three types of free spins rounds to choose from: multiplier boost, extra exotic and extreme XXX free spins.
Moreover, incorporating a jackpot chance, this may trigger every time at least one exotic wild lands on the reels. When triggered, the game will transition to the jackpot pick bonus. This includes mini, minor, major and grand jackpots offering x10, x20, x200 and x5,000 the bet respectively.
“I’m really proud of this slot game,” noted David Stoveld, COO of Armadillo Studios. “Queen of Egypt has everything – excellent graphics and sound, good timings, great maths with free spins flexibility, a jackpot bonus, intuitive mechanical innovation, and a fun, luxurious theme.
“We’re sure that players will love this journey filled with exotic wilds that appear frequently and gifts from the Egyptian beauty herself, offering multipliers up to x7 each or more in free spins.”
