With the Easter period behind us, enter the weekend by looking at some of the latest slot releases to hit the CasinoBeats inbox, including High 5 Games’ Wild West shootout, Red Rake Gaming’s Egyptian extravaganza, BGaming’s extraterrestrial title and more.
Fugitive Gold – High 5 Games
The latest slot from High 5 Games sees players take on a Mexican stand-off in the Wild West. This game uses a 5×3 reel set-up with 243 ways to win and a maximum win of up to x2,365 the player’s stake, while having high volatility and an RTP of 96 per cent.
Jerry Wilson, VP of Creative at High 5 Games, stated: “Venture into the Wild West with Fugitive Gold. With expanding wilds, free games, and a fun Wild West theme, players will really enjoy our new game.
“Enjoy the fun features, great graphics, and wild west soundtrack on your way to expanding wild wins.”
Low value symbols are represented by whips, pistols, stopwatches, sheriff badges and horseshoes. If the right number of matching combinations appear on a single spin, these symbols can offer between x0.1 and x1 the player’s bet.
Bearded bandits, pistol-wielding cowgirls and sheriffs depict the high value symbols, offering between x0.5 and x10 the player’s preferred stake.
Wild scrolls can also drop into play on reels two, three and four, substituting for all symbols in the game. These wilds also work as bonus symbols, triggering 10 free spins if three land on the same spin.
During these free spins, low value pistol and whip symbols are removed from play, while wilds will expand across entire reels when they land, increasing the game’s win potential.
Alien Fruits – BGaming
BGaming has taken players to another world with this juicy release, presenting a 6×5 reel slot with scatter-pays and a maximum win of up to x15,000 the player’s stake. This game also offers an RTP of 96 per cent.
Yulia Aliakseyeva, Co-CPO at BGaming, commented: “As a leading slots provider, we are delighted to add Alien Fruits to our portfolio of more than 100 creative titles.
“We are especially excited to introduce AI-generated graphics – just one example of BGaming’s innovative approach to slots development.”
Low value symbols come in the form of playing card royals, from Jack through to Ace, while blue, green and purple alien fruits depict the medium value symbols.
Meanwhile, yellow and pink alien fruits represent the high value symbols. These symbols can offer between x2.5 and x50, depending on the number of identical symbols that appear on one spin.
This game uses cascading wins, meaning that symbols in a winning combination will disappear after providing their payout, making way for new symbols to drop in and increase the win potential.
UFO Scatters can also drop into play, triggering 10, 20 or 30 free spins when four, five or six scatters appear on the same spin. Landing three or more scatters on the same free spin will trigger an additional five free turns.
Additionally, multiplier symbols can appear with values between x2 and x100 that will be applied to any wins formed on the spin they drop into play on.
Ramses Legacy – Red Rake Gaming
Become transported to an ancient Egyptian landscape with Red Rake Gaming’s latest archaeological slot title, offering up to a million ways to win on a six-reel slot that begins with three rows, but can reach up to ten.
Throughout the base game, landing a winning combination will cause one hidden row, above the reel set, to be revealed. If these hidden rows contribute to another win, then another row will be revealed, increasing the number of ways to win each time.
This can reoccur until 10 rows have been revealed in total, including the initial three. Once 10 rows are available, one million ways to win will be in play.
Reaching rows five, seven and nine will each fill up a meter to the side of the reels. Once this meter has been filled, a bonus minigame will be launched.
In this minigame, players will be taken to a different reel set with a new paytable, in which only three standard symbols can land on the reels, alongside single, double and triple-cup scatters.
Players are awarded a certain number of free spins at the beginning of the feature, while landing single, double or triple-cup scatters will award one, two or three extra free spins respectively.
This new reel set also uses the same additional row set-up as the base game, and will award a special Ramses treasure jackpot prize if players can reveal the tenth row.
Furthermore, the free spins feature also uses the additional row set-up seen in the base game, however two rows will be revealed with each win, making it twice as easy to unlock all rows.
The free spins game mode will also start with four rows, rather than three in the base game.
Money Cart 3 – Relax Gaming
Relax Gaming has delighted fans in the UK with its latest slot release, which plays on its popular Money Train series. The game has a 5×4 reel set-up that takes players straight to an empty reel set, while offering an RTP of 96 per cent and a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s bet.
Shelley Hannah, Director of Casino Products at Relax Gaming, stated: “We are excited to bring this rendition of Money Train 3 to players residing in areas with buy feature restrictions.
“Players will love this game, jumping straight to an action-filled experience with truly engaging features. Historically, these games have performed exceptionally well, and we expect Money Cart 3 to be no different.”
As the game begins, players are presented with an empty 5×4 reel set, on which they will aim to land bonus text symbols when they spin the reels.
Landing three or more bonus symbols on the same spin will trigger the game’s respin game mode. Each bonus symbol will then reveal a value between x0.1 and x1 the player’s stake.
Three respins are awarded as players aim to land further bonus symbols on the reels, as when the feature finishes all bonus values will be awarded to the player.
Landing further symbols will reset the number of spins to three, while filling columns with symbols will cause additional reels to come into play up to two times.
Other than the monetary bonus symbols, 12 power symbols can drop into play during this game mode.
These power symbols include a collector symbol, which collects all visible values on the reels and adds them to its own, and a persistent collector which does this for the entirety of the respins, not just in one round.
Tommy gun payers are also included, which picks one random bonus value on the reels and doubles its value from two to six times and is a persistent shapeshifter that changes power on every spin.
The title also features a collector-payer symbol that collects three to five cash symbol prizes and adds it to its own value before sending that updated sum back to the original cash value symbols.
Other notable power symbols include the sniper, which doubles the value of three to eight symbols, the necromancer which brings between two and seven old power symbols back to life, and the absorber which collects all the values from all cash value symbols and removes them to make way for new symbols to increase the game’s win potential.
The sniper, collector-payer and necromancer symbols are also available in persistent form, conducting their respective powers for the entirety of the money cart spins.
Kiss My Chainsaw – Nolimit City
A pair of unlucky hitchhikers meet their fate in Nolimit City’s latest spine-tingling slot release, which uses a 5×4 reel set-up with up to 259 ways to win and a maximum win of up to x10,900 the player’s stake. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96.10 per cent.
Sebastian Hovenberg, Product Owner at Nolimit City, stated: ”Grab some beer, take a smoke, and meet up some chicks for the road. As the laughter went on – as did the end of the road. Unknowingly for them – this was their Last Ride, but for now, it was time for them to Kiss My Chainsaw.”
Throughout the base game, gas can charged wilds that contribute to a winning payline from a cascading win will enhance the payout with a x2 multiplier. This causes gas in the gas can icon to decrease.
For each cascading win with a gas can wild that occurs, its multiplier will double in value to provide larger wins. This continues until the gas can on the symbol becomes empty.
In ‘the ride’ free spins, the reel set grows to a size of 5×5 and gas can wilds can offer higher multipliers before becoming empty.
Landing two scatters in this feature will trigger an extra respin, however, if they land in the same column then a burnout respin will be awarded as well.
If players land three scatters on the same spin during ‘the ride’, they will receive an additional three spins before triggering the Chainsaw Larry spins feature.
Moreover, ‘the last ride’ game mode, triggered by landing three scatter symbols in the same reel in the base game, works the same as ‘the ride’ except it guarantees a scatter will land on the fifth reel on each spin.
In the Chainsaw Larry spins feature, an extra enhancer reel is added to the right side of the board. This reel will spin to reveal one of three symbols, including a smiley face that awards an additional spin, an xSplit symbol or a lucky feet symbol.
Throughout this game mode, Chainsaw Larry wilds can appear and hop between cells on reels two, three and four on every spin, increasing a win multiplier by one each time it jumps on a character symbol.
