While the industry cools off from a week at ICE, put your feet up as we guide you through a selection of recent slot releases, including Pragmatic Play’s island paradise, Red Tiger’s Egyptian extravaganza, Play’n GO’s Roman romp and more.
Club Tropicana – Pragmatic Play
Pack your bags as Pragmatic Play’s latest beachside slot release has taken players on an island holiday with a 5×4 reel slot that has 12-paylines and a maximum win of up to x4,000 the player’s bet. This is a high volatility game with an RTP of 96.08 per cent.
Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, noted: “Showcasing fan favourite mechanics seen in Pragmatic Play’s popular Big Bass Bonanza, Club Tropicana features a free spins round with upgradeable multipliers and opportunities to retrigger free spins by collecting instant cash prizes.
“With a maximum x4,000 instant cash prize to unlock, this game is packed full of big win potential.”
Money symbols are available, displaying monetary values between x2 and x4,000 the player’s stake. Landing five-of-a-kind wins with money symbols will provide the player with the accumulated value of all prizes displayed on the symbols.
Cocktail glass scatters can also appear on the reels, triggering the free spins feature if three or more land on the reels at once.
Landing three, four or five scatters will award 10, 15 or 20 free spins respectively. When only two scatters land on the reels, there is a chance that a third scatter will be placed onto the board to take players to the free spins game mode.
While the wild symbols will collect all money symbol values, they will be collected into a meter themselves. Every four wilds collected into this meter will retrigger the feature with 10 extra spins and will award a multiplier of x2, x3 or x10 on the first, second and third retrigger.
A randomly activated bonus feature in this game mode can place money symbols on the reels if there are wilds available with no money values to collect. Another feature can push the reels up to reveal wilds and money symbols beneath them.
Ancient Disco – Red Tiger
The latest slot release from Red Tiger has players walking like an Egyptian with a 5×3 reel slot that has 20-paylines and a maximum win of up to x22,500 the player’s bet. It is a high volatility slot with an RTP of 95.74 per cent.
Low value symbols come in the form of playing card royals, with Jack through to Ace, while cocktail vases, cat goddess heads, scarab beetles and Pharaoh heads depict the high value symbols.
Ancient disco text scatters can also drop into play, awarding prizes from a prize table above the reels of six or more land on the same spin.
The prizes in this prize table range from x5 for six scatters to x5,000 for 15 scatters. If a reel or row is filled with these ancient disco scatters, the prize board will be enhanced with prizes increasing for each filled reel or row.
Finally, pyramid bonus text scatters are available, triggering three, four or five spins in a bonus game mode where only ancient disco scatters can land on the reels.
Legion Gold – Play’n GO
Enter the Roman empire with the latest slot from Play’n GO, a 5×3 reel slot with 25-paylines and a maximum win of up to x2,000 the player’s stake.
Head of Game Retention at Play’n GO, George Olekszy, stated: “This slot is all about fusing the narrative with the features to make it one seamless package. We have a bunch of wild creature symbols such as bears, vultures and hounds that immerse you in the march of Roman soldiers.”
“The gold re-spins are also pretty fun because it makes the player feel like they’re a soldier at war with the three-life feature. It’s a real gold hunt!”
With the gold respins game mode, players are taken to an empty reel set with only the triggering coins present on the board.
Players are given three spins to land as many golden coins on the reels as possible, with every coin that drops in resetting the number of spins to three.
If players manage to fill the reel set, they will be awarded the grand prize of x1,000, in addition to all coin prizes on the screen.
Failing to fill the board will still result in a payout, as all coin values are awarded to the player at the end of the feature.
During the free spins feature, 3×3-sized giant symbols are guaranteed to land on every spin, increasing the win potential of the bonus game mode.
Wild Hike – Relax Gaming
Strap on your walking boots as Relax Gaming’s latest wanderlust slot title uses a 6×4 reel set with 4,096 ways to win and a maximum win of up to x20,000 the player’s stake.
“Wild Hike is the perfect game for these cold winter nights,” explained Shelley Hannah, Director of Casino Products at Relax Gaming
“Dim the light, settle in, and allow this slot to transport you into the heart of the forest; this slot will carry you on a midnight journey through the woodland at a time when everything around you comes to life! If luck has accompanied you on your journey, some wildlife will grace you with their presence and hopefully stick around for a while.”
If wolf wild symbols can contribute to a win, they will expand to fill out their entire reels. This feature will then award a respin with the wild staying sticky on the board.
If a win can be formed from said respin, another respin will be awarded while a multiplier on the wild increases by a value of one. If this occurs with two wilds on the reels, they will multiply each other’s values to enhance the respins.
During the free spins feature, each multiplying wild will keep its multiplier value for the duration of the feature, rather than resetting in between respins as they do in the base game.
Each scatter that lands during the bonus game mode will provide one additional free spin.
Hannah added: “Loaded with features, offering free spins and expanding wilds aplenty, this release will certainly hit the right notes and maintain a high level of excitement as players hike their way to the big potential payouts.’’
Benji Killed in Vegas – Nolimit City
Prepare for a wild ride as Nolimit City’s latest slot release has taken dead Presidents to Sin City with a 5×3 reel slot with 7,776 ways to win and a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s stake.
Per Lindheimer, Head of Product at Nolimit City, commented: “It’s been a long time coming, and it’s about time we took on the classic Vegas theme – kicking it up a notch, Nolimit Style.
“So enjoy the wild ride that is the dead Presidents’ trip to vegas, and remember, It’s all about the Benjamins baby!”
Three dead US political figures depict the high value symbols, with Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. If the right amount of winning combinations land at once, these symbols can offer between x1 and x30 the player’s preferred stake.
High value symbols will appear as 1×3 sized symbols, but can land on the reels partially to only cover one or two cells too.
If either of the three high value symbols appear covering any of the first three reels, they will cause any other identical symbols that land partially on the reels to nudge and cover their own columns.
For each nudge that this feature causes, a multiplier will increase by a value of one on the nudged symbol.
Landing three scatter dice symbols will award nine free spins where all dice scatters are to be replaced by multiplier symbols with values of x2, x3 or x4.
Additionally, landing four or five scatters will trigger 11 or 13 ‘big’ free spins respectively. The difference between the standard free spins and the ‘big’ free spins is that multipliers can be x2, x3, x4, x5 or x6.
