The past week has seen an abundance of slots hit the CasinoBeats inbox, put your feet up as we guide you through some of the latest slot titles including Thunderkick’s high seas adventure, Nolimit City’s anger induced title, Lighting Box’s Light & Wonder remake and PopOk’s black and white animal.
Road Rage – Nolimit City
Nolimit City tasks players with getting behind the wheel and managing their temper in Road Rage, a 5×3 reel slot with up to 259-winways and a maximum win of up to x36,000 the player’s stake.
Before each bonus mode, a rage buff feature is activated, deciding if any special features will be applied to the bonus mode. This feature presents one of six road signs, each offering a different feature including respins, sticky multipliers and wild car direction changes.
With the morning rush bonus mode six free spins are awarded to the player while a wild car acts as a sticky wild with a multiplier. Landing one more scatter during this feature will upgrade the bonus game to highway jam.
In highway jam, eight free spins are provided to the player and two wild cars will act as sticky wilds with multipliers. During this feature, the number of rows increases to four and landing an additional scatter will trigger the city mayhem bonus feature.
This city mayhem bonus feature increases the rows to five while awarding 10 free spins to the player. All three wild cars will be present as this feature begins, acting as sticky wilds.
Sebastian Hovenberg, Product Owner at Nolimit City, said: “ We’ve all been there; struggling, gnawing, and swearing in one way or another, making enemies with your fellow drivers and asking yourself how they’re still alive,
“Relive these moments in our comical approach as a slot, in Road Rage! The characters are angry, drive recklessly and nothing’s going their way. Buckle up!”
Shifting Seas – Thunderkick
Thunderkick ventures to the seven seas to tackle the waves in its most recent slot Shifting Seas.
A six-reel, high volatile slot, with shifting rows ranging from two to five squares, Shifting Seas has 117,649-payways and a maximum win of up to x15,000 the player’s stake.
Shifting Seas works as its name suggests, with symbols shifting one reel to the right with each consecutive win. This occurs due to winning symbols on a payline disappearing to make way for new symbols.
With each consecutive win, the reel furthest to the right gets shifted out of play and a new five-row reel enters play on the left side of the board. If a player can land five consecutive wins then the entire board will have 5×5 reels. The symbols on the new furthest-left reel will be duplicates of the reel to its right.
With the free spins bonus mode, eight free spins are awarded to the player. If another scatter is pushed out of the furthest-right reel during this feature then an additional four spins will be awarded to the player.
During the free spins feature, the wild reel bonus can be activated randomly. This causes the left-most reel to be filled out by wilds. This reel starts with a multiplier of x1 that applies to any wins gained while it is on the reel. With each consecutive win it will shift one reel further to the right while increasing its multiplier by one.
Richy Panda – PopOk Gaming
PopOk Gaming has embraced the beloved black and white Chinese figure in Richy Panda, the firm’s recent slot.
Richy Panda is a 6×3-6, 46,656-payline slot that includes a free spins mode, as well as multipliers, which can increase select modes, and a Buy Feature.
In the base game, the wild symbol can land on reels two, three, four and five. Once this happens, it will substitute for all symbols, except the bonus.
Furthermore, the game includes multipliers, which are available in both game modes. These can appear randomly outside the reels. In the base game, multipliers can randomly appear once on each new game round. For the duration of the round, whenever any new multipliers appear where there is a win, the multiplier value applied to the win.
Additionally, within the free spins mode, the multiplier value can be between either x2 and x20.
If the player lands four or more scatter symbols on the grid it will trigger the free spins mode and award 15 spins to the player. This can be retriggered during the feature by landing three or more scatters on any reel, awarding five additional spins in the process.
Lightning Blaze – Lightning Box
Lightning Box has revamped and revitalised a Light & Wonder land-based machine title in its video slot, Lightning Blaze, a 5×3 reel slot with 40-paylines and bonus features including lightning respins and growing symbols.
Michael Maokhamphiou, Operations Manager at Lightning Box, explained: “Lightning Respin has become a fan-favourite mechanic with the feature now available in some of our most popular titles, including Lightning Gorilla, Lightning Shenlong and now Lightning Blaze.
“This game is inspired by igaming’s land-based heritage yet fires up the classic fruit machine with new features and innovation, whilst providing players with familiar symbols within a timeless theme.”
During the lightning free spins bonus, only cash value symbols can drop onto the reels and three respins are awarded to the player initially.
Random reels between one and five are then chosen to be activated for the respins, with an electrical border indicating which reels are active. If a cash value drops into one of the active reels then an additional three respins will be awarded to the player and the cash value will be added to the payout of the respins.
Rob Procter, VP Game Development at Light & Wonder, commented: “Lightning Blaze will expand Lightning Box’s varied and high-quality portfolio of games.
“The title incorporates both classic gameplay and modern features which will have universal appeal to players. We are excited to add Lightning Blaze to our OpenGaming platform.”
