The CasinoBeats inbox has been flooded with the industry’s latest slot titles in the past week, sit back and relax as we walk you through a selection of new releases, including Iron Dog Studio’s shark attack, BGaming’s bubbling boiling pot, Relax Gaming’s viscous vacation and more.
Iron Dog Studio – Feeding Fury
Take a deep dive into the latest slot from Iron Dog Studio, which uses a 5×3 reel slot with 10-paylines to offer a maximum win of up to x5,434 the player’s stake. This game has medium-high volatility and, depending on jurisdiction, an RTP range of 88.10, 94.07 and 96.11 per cent.
Alex Ratcliffe, Chief Product Officer at 1X2 Network, stated: “We’re proud of our colleagues at Iron Dog Studio because they’re turning into something of a hit factory. Feeding Fury has all the hallmarks of an Iron Dog game. It’s wildly creative and highly original but retains those core elements so beloved of slot fans.”
With the feed or die feature, players are taken to an empty reel set that has a collector shark symbol across the middle reel.
Players are given three spins to land as many fish symbols on the reels as possible, with every fish resetting the number of spins to three.
The collector symbols will collect all fish symbol values into the bonus game winnings, and when enough fish symbols have been collected the collector symbol will grow to a bigger size.
Each time the collector shark grows in size, a bonus game multiplier increases that will be applied to the final payout once the game mode has finished.
Furthermore, a wild shark attack feature can be activated during the base game mode. This causes shark wilds to swim left across the reels, upgrading symbols into wilds.
BGaming – Potion Spells
Prepare for a concoction of bonus enhancements with BGaming’s latest stirring slot title. This release has a 7×7 reel slot with cluster-pays and a maximum win of up to x12,000 the player’s stake, in addition to high volatility with an RTP of 96.25 per cent.
“As one of the leading slots providers, our priority is to promote a diverse gaming experience through constant dynamics, feature-packed gameplay, and eye-catching design,” explained Yulia Aliakseyeva, BGaming’s co-CPO.
“The BGaming portfolio has expanded to include over 90 vibrant titles with the addition of Potion Spells, and we are excited to bring this game to players worldwide, offering a new level of excitement and engagement.”
Symbols that land in a square formation of four will transform into a giant 2×2 symbol. Any wins formed with these large symbols will pay double.
Backlit symbols are also available, placing a light behind standard symbols. When these backlit symbols disappear after a cascading win, they will guarantee wilds to drop in.
To the side of the reels is a bubbling pot meter that fills up with each consecutive win. The meter has four levels, with each activated level awarding a feature.
Four features are available, with each filled meter level awarding a random feature.
Detonation is one feature, causing three to six symbols on the reels to transform into wilds that destroy four symbols around them. These destroyed symbols will not provide a payout but make way for new symbols.
Another feature is promotion, which upgrades a randomly chosen low value symbol into identical higher-paying symbols. Separation, a third feature, places a wild in the centre of the board while changing symbols around it into identical symbols.
Additionally, reduction causes low value symbols to disappear without payment, making way for new symbols to drop in and increase the win potential.
Relax Gaming – Horror Hotel
Check in to Relax Gaming’s latest spooky slot title, a 6×6 reel slot with cluster-pays and a maximum win of up to x20,000 the player’s stake. This release has an RTP of 96.18 per cent and high volatility.
Shelley Hannah, Director of Casino Products at Relax Gaming, said: “We’re delighted to be generating some real momentum with our 2023 content roll-out following the launch of our latest title, Horror Hotel. The cluster payout mechanic and mystery symbol feature make for an unbeatable combination that players are sure to enjoy.
“Following on from the launch of Grim the Splitter earlier in the month, we are keeping the spooky theme in place, ensuring players remain engaged with high-quality content that is packed with thrilling features.”
Using a cluster-pays mechanic, all wins are formed by clusters of five or more identical symbols landing adjacently.
This is also a cascading wins title, meaning that symbols in a winning combination will disappear after providing their payout to make way for new symbols and increase the win potential of an already successful spin.
On any random winning spin, a mystery symbol feature can be activated. This cause all winning symbols to provide their payout before turning into a mystery symbol, while all non-winning symbols disappear around them.
These mystery symbols will reveal identical symbols to give the player a chance of landing an enhanced win.
During the free spins, wild symbols are guaranteed to land on every spin and a progressive win multiplier is active, which increases with every spin.
Wizard Games – Sultan’s Palace Fortune
Hunt for treasure in a Sultan’s palace with Wizard Games’ latest slot, a three-reel title with nine-paylines and a maximum win of up to x5,476 the player’s bet. This game uses low volatility with an RTP of 96.06 per cent.
Joey Hurtado, Managing Director at Wizard Games, commented: “Sultan’s Palace Fortune immerses players into a world of untold riches, combining a fluid reel mechanic with a respins mode, as well as three thrilling additional bonus games.
“We strive to create innovative, exciting games that bring diverse themes to market, and we’re very pleased with the potential of our portfolio as it continues to expand.”
Three scatter gems can drop into play, with green, red and blue colours. Landing a combination of three scatters on the same spin will activate the sultan’s treasure game mode.
With the sultan’s treasure feature, players are given three spins on an empty reel set, with each scatter that drops in resetting the number of spins to three.
Players will aim to land as many bonus symbols, which offer between x1 and x10 the player’s stake, and jackpot symbols on the reels during this feature. All symbols on the reels will payout their values at the end of the game mode.
Each gem scatter that drops in will also award its own bonus mini game. Blue scatters award between two and 10 respins with an expanded sticky wild while red scatters award between five and nine respins with randomly placed wilds guaranteed on every spin.
Furthermore, green scatters will provide respins until a win has been achieved. This bonus mini game then applies a x30 multiplier to that win.
Evoplay – Mega Greatest Catch Bonus Buy
Reel in some fishy wins in Evoplay’s latest angling slot title, which uses a 5×4 reel slot with 12-paylines and a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s bet. This game has medium-high volatility with an RTP of 96.03 per cent.
Ivan Kravchuk, CEO at Evoplay, noted: “We’re thrilled to be able to showcase this new title to our players and the new bonus buy feature is a truly unique innovation to be able to bring to our portfolio.
“Mega Greatest Catch has proved itself to be hugely successful in its own right but with striking visuals and exciting gameplay, Mega Greatest Catch Bonus Buy will be a fantastic catch for our players.”
With the free spins feature, fish amounts that appear on the board at the same time as fisherman symbols will provide their bet amounts to the free spins payout.
These fish symbols can appear with values between x2 and x2,000 the player’s bet.
Every fourth fisherman wild that lands during the bonus rounds will provide players with an additional 10 spins with an increased multiplier to be applied to the free spins payout, starting at x2 and going to x3 and x10 when it is repeated for the second and third time respectively.
When wild symbols appear on the reels without fish prize amounts to collect, the game’s dynamite feature can be randomly activated. This causes between three and six fish symbols to be placed across the reels and collected.
