Another week has passed and another rich assortment of slots has hit CasinoBeats’ inbox. Sit back and relax as we guide you through some of our favourite new releases, including Pragmatic Play’s football fete, Push Gaming‘s outer space spectacle, Nolimit City’s bloodcurdling nightmare and more.
Pragmatic Play – Spin & Score
Getting in the mood for the World Cup, Pragmatic Play’s latest slot uses six reels and tumble wins to offer players up to 117,640 ways to win. It is a high-volatility slot with an RTP of 96.97 per cent.
Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, explained: “Spin & Score Megaways arrives as the popularity of football is at an all-time high with international tournaments on the horizon.
“The slot offers multiple ways for players to unlock big win potential, whether that be through the big wild feature, increasing a multiplier in the free spins round, or using the Megaways mechanic to unlock the maximum ways possible.
“Offering varying ways to win across six ever changing reels, this title is ready to kick-off some great entertainment.”
The game includes a tumble feature that removes any winning symbols from play and replaces them with new symbols, allowing for additional wins to be made.
Furthermore, the title also includes a big wild feature. This is a big wild symbol, which does not pay, but takes two horizontal positions on the screen and can appear only on the top row of reels two, three, four and five.
Whenever the big wild hits fully, all symbols on the reels below it are transformed into wilds. If this occurs through a tumble, the big wild changes to a new position on the top row and all symbols on the reels below it are transformed into wilds.
At least four trophy scatter symbols are required to gain access to the free spins round which awards 10 free spins. These can then be collected or gambled for the chance to be awarded additional spins.
Each win gained during the round increases the overall multiplier by x1 and this feature can be retriggered by landing three scatter symbols awarding an extra four spins.
Push Gaming – Mystery Mission – To The Moon
With a 6×4 reel-set, Push Gaming’s latest slot takes players to the final frontier with 20-paylines and a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s bet. This title has an RTP of 96.25 per cent and a high volatility.
James Marshall, CEO at Push Gaming, stated: “Mystery Mission – To The Moon builds upon a fan favourite title and the massive win potential of the mystery stacks feature present in the original.
“We have expanded the reels, introduced an ante bet for the first time in a Push Gaming title and packaged the slot in a fun and engaging theme. We are anticipating that fans of the original and new players of this series will adore the innovative mechanics it brings to the table.”
Wild full moons can drop into play on all reels, substituting for all symbols other than the space chute mystery symbols. These wilds also work as scatters, triggering the free spins feature if three or more land on the reels at once.
With the free spins feature, any mystery chute that lands on the reels will nudge to fill their respective reels no matter how many are in play. These stacked chutes will then stay sticky on the reels for the duration of the spins.
Finally, mystery space chute symbols can land on the reels, covering between 1×1 and 1×4 spaces on the board.
If three or more of these space chutes appear on the same spin, they will expand to cover their entire reels before revealing random identical symbols on all cells that they cover. They can reveal all symbols other than the wild moon scatters.
Nolimit City – Serial
Halloween may have been and gone, but Nolimit City is keeping the spooky spirit alive with its latest 5×3 reel, 243-winways slot. This serial killer slot title has an RTP of 96.07 per cent and a high volatility.
Per Lindheimer, Product owner at Nolimit City said: ”To put it lightly, Serial is not for the faint of heart. This is the disgusting world of chainsaw murders, body bags, corpses, and first-person victim hunting.
“From the artistic direction to the brutal volatility and game mechanics, we truly went all out with this one, and have raised that bar to where Nolimit City can go. Welcome, to Serial.”
Although this is a 5×3 reel slot, there are two horizontal enhancement reels above and below the board. With every successful spin, a respin is granted, opening the enhanced reels for the first column on the board.
This respin sees all symbols that formed the triggering win stay sticky on the reel-set to increase the respin’s payout potential.
If another win occurs after this enhanced respin, another will be granted with the next set of enhanced horizontal reels unlocked. While these new enhanced cells will usually depict a low, medium or high value symbol, they can also reveal special features to increase the game’s win potential.
One feature the enhanced reels can reveal is the xWays bonus. This causes two to four identical paying symbols to land into play. If two xWays symbols land on multiplier unlocked enhanced reel cells, they will all reveal the same symbol
Nudged wilds are another feature that can be awarded, landing a stacked wild onto the screen that will nudge to fill out an entire reel. Each space it nudges over will increase a wild multiplier by a value of x1, which will be applied to any subsequent wins.
On the fifth reel, xSplit wild symbols can land into play, appearing as a x2 multiplier wild. This splits all symbols on its row into two, including scatters, xWays and Nudging wild symbols.
Infectious xWays symbols can drop into play on the fifth reel via the enhanced horizontal reels. Like xWays symbols, it will place identical symbols across the board, however this special variant causes other present symbols that match that symbol to expand and increase the number of win ways.
Blueprint Gaming – D10S
Blueprint Gaming has paid homage to a footballing legend with its latest Diego Maradona-themed slot title that has a 5×3 reel set, 20-paylines and a maximum win of up to x50,000 the player’s bet. This is a medium volatility slot with an RTP of 95 per cent.
Jo Purvis, Director of Key Accounts and Marketing UK at Blueprint Gaming, commented: “Like the player himself, D10S Maradona is something special. It’s been a pleasure to work on such a legendary brand and the resulting game is something we’re very proud of, paying homage to a sporting great.
“The win potential throughout is incredible and we’re sure players are going to love the fast gameplay and score big wins with one of the greatest footballers of all time.”
When a D10S symbol lands on the fifth reel, it will expand to reveal one of four Maradona pictures, representing the three clubs and Argentina.
If Barcelona Maradona appears, all cash values on the board will be collected, whereas Napoli Maradona will award all cash values while adding an extra cash boost to the payout.
If Maradona appears in Boca Junior colours, a free respin will be gifted with all cash values staying sticky on the reels. If any additional cash values drop in around these symbols another respin will occur. Once no more respins can be gifted, the sum of all cash values will be awarded.
When the D10S symbol reveals an Argentina-playing Maradona, all cash values will be collected and enhanced by a multiplier of up to x5.
If three scatters land to trigger the free spins bonus game mode, 10 spins are awarded to the player. The cash collecting features stay active for these spins, however any cash values that appear without a D10S symbol on the fifth reel will be attributed to a collection above the reels that can eventually be obtained if a D10S appears on another free spin.
With every free spins feature, the final spin will guarantee a D10S maradona symbol to collect the value of all cash value symbols obtained throughout the duration of the game mode.
Iron Dog Studios – Rum & Raiders
Set sail on the high seas with Iron Dog Studios’ latest pirate-themed title. With a medium-high volatility and an RTP of 96.08 per cent, this release offers a maximum win of up to x25,000 the player’s stake using a 5×4 reel set with 40-paylines.
John Foster, Commercial Manager at iGG White Labels, stated: ‘’We’re delighted to partner up with Iron Dog Studio, part of 1X2 Network, to release Rum & Raiders as our latest exclusive. Working with the 1X2 team has been a pleasure and we look forward to seeing Rum & Raiders bring in excellent results across our MGA White Label sites.”
In the broadside bonus game mode, players are awarded with five cannonballs that are randomly shot at treasure chests on the reels. Behind these chests are stake multipliers, skull symbols or extra cannonballs.
Destroying a crate with a stake multiplier behind it will award that multiplied bet amount at the end of the feature. Revealing a skull symbol will double all multipliers that are present on the reels.
Extra cannonball symbols award one more round with five more cannon shots. If all symbols in one reel are destroyed, a bonus five-high reel will appear to the right of the board, which can happen up to two times.
If a player manages to destroy all symbols on the increased reel-set, a multiplier of x100 is added to the win total as the complete payout is awarded and the feature ends.
With the hold and win game mode, players are awarded an initial three spins as only random bet multiplier values and special feature symbols can land on the reels. Each symbol that drops into play will reset the number of hold and win spins to three.
At the start of the feature, the triggering scatters will transform into bet multipliers.
Players will hope to land as many bet multipliers on the reels as possible, as at the end of the game mode, all showcased bet multipliers are tallied up and applied to the player’s stake.
James Baxandall, Account Management Team Lead at 1X2 Network, added: “We’re incredibly excited to see Rum & Raiders make its debut by way of iGaming Group’s first-class collection of white label partners. We’re certain players will enjoy everything it has to offer, and we look forward to working with iGG on future releases.”
