Nailed It! Games, Yggdrasil and Relax Gaming: on the spin

Another week has passed and an abundance of slot releases have hit the CasinoBeats inbox. Sit back and relax as we guide you through an assortment of the industry’s latest slots, including Nailed It! Games’ hound holiday, Yggdrasil’s mining mayhem, Relax Gaming’s burglary bonanza and more. 

Dog Days – Nailed It! Games

Nailed It! Games has let the dogs out with its latest tail-wagging slot title, which uses a 5×3 reel board with 20-paylines and a maximum win of up to x2,500 the player’s stake, while players aim to collect special paw print gemstones. 

Paweł Piotrowski, Co-Founder of Nailed It! Games, stated: “We’re extremely excited to be launching Dog Days, with plenty of exciting features and unique mechanics that players will embrace and enjoy.

“With the paw and tasty treat collections, a free spins bonus round and even chances to open up instant cash prizes with the bonus game, this slot has big winning potential and we’re thrilled to be adding another innovative release to our roster.” 

Throughout the game, collecting gem stones in each reel will trigger the tasty treat feature that sees players able to win prizes displayed to the side of the reel set. 

Each reel has its own coloured paw print, and activating each reel’s tasty treat mode will result in different prizes being available for each reel. The prizes get bigger further to the right of the reel set, with the fifth reel’s game mode able to offer prizes up to x2,500.

When activated, coloured bones can drop into play on subsequent spins, with players gaining three lives to land bone symbols on the respective reels. Each bone symbol that is collected will reset the number of lives to three. 

Players can collect up to 10 bones before the lives run out, which will payout the reel’s respective maximum prize. 

During the free spins, every reel’s tasty treat feature will be active and no lives will be required to collect the available bones throughout the bonus game mode. 

In the base game, gift box scatters can award multiplied bet amount prizes from x2 to x40, or tasty treat bones – if the feature is active – and paw print gems. Each box on the reel set will award one prize each. 

These gift box prizes are enhanced for the free spins game mode as they can offer between x6 and x120 the player’s wager. 

Badger Miners – Yggdrasil

A band of badgers are hard at work in Yggdrasil’s latest mining-themed slot release, using a 5×3 reel set up with 243-ways to win and a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s stake. The game has high volatility with an RTP of 96 per cent. 

Mark McGinley, Chief Gaming Officer at Yggdrasil, stated: “Badger Miners sees us take a fun-loving theme and add an exciting concept with cash wilds, which can lead to activating big multipliers.

“With an easy-to-understand reel layout and huge win potential, it’s an immersive new addition to our portfolio with a band of determined badgers!”

This slot 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 game’s win potential.

Three multipliers sit above the second, third and fourth reels, while ‘+’ or ‘x’ symbols can appear in between them to enhance these multipliers by either adding them together or multiplying them. 

When wild minecarts nudge up the reels, they will activate one free respin. As these mine carts only appear in the second, third and fourth reels – along with the multipliers – the aim of the game is to nudge the minecarts all the way up the screen to their respective multipliers. 

If a minecart nudges all the way up the reels and off the screen, the monetary value it has collected from the payline wins it contributed to will be enhanced by the reel’s multiplier before being paid to the player. 

During the free spins game mode, players are given seven spins while all minecart symbols that don’t nudge all the way to the top will remain in their place rather than disappearing as they do in base game spins.

Midnight Marauder Dream Drop – Relax Gaming

Relax Gaming has presented players with a prolific opportunity in the form of a midnight heist in its latest six-reel slot title that uses cluster-pays with a maximum win of up to x30,000 the player’s stake. 

Shelley Hannah, Director of Casino Products at Relax Gaming, commented: “We take great pride in adding our Dream Drop Jackpots to some of our most popular titles and Midnight Marauder Dream Drop truly is a fantastic addition to our ever-growing portfolio.

“With the wonderful gameplay of Midnight Marauder combined with the massive winning potential of the Dream Drop Jackpot, we are certain that players will enjoy the thrill of attempting to become our next millionaire.”

Throughout the game, players must land the gemstones in clusters of five or more identical symbols to achieve wins. Once landing in a winning cluster, the symbols will group together to be collected in a pouch.

These pouches will stay on the reels as a free respin occurs around them. In the respin, any identical symbol that lands adjacent to a pouch of its kind will be added to the pouch. 

When no more wins can be formed, the player will receive the prize value of the particular gemstone that has been collected, multiplied by the number of gems in the pouch. 

If two pouches of the same kind are active on the same spin, and once all respins have been played out, these identical pouches will multiply together to enhance the cluster win. 

With the free spins feature, players are given eight spins, while landing an additional three bonus scatters will award two extra spins. Extra spin scatters are also available in this game mode, awarding one extra spin each. 

In addition to payline and free spin wins, players can win via the game’s Dream Drop jackpot function which can be triggered randomly before any base game spin. 

With this feature, players spin a jackpot wheel to win one of five progressive jackpot prizes, with rapid, midi, maxi, major and mega variants. 

Rich Raptors – Fantasma Games

Fantasma Games’ latest Jurassic slot title brings dinosaurs to the present day with a 6×4 reel slot that has 4,096-ways and a maximum win of up to x8,024 the player’s wager. This slot has medium-high volatility with an RTP of 96 per cent. 

Meteor symbols can land on reels four through six, depicting a number between one and three. This number will represent the number of times the meteor shower feature will be activated. 

Throughout the game, these meteor symbols will trigger a meteor shower feature that causes a random number of non-winning paytable symbols to be removed from play, making way for new symbols to drop in. 

Winning symbols, scatters and wilds will be protected in this feature, meaning that they cannot be removed from the spin. 

During the free spins, two multipliers are available and each is increased by a value of one with each meteor shower feature that is triggered. 

One multiplier, a ‘normal’ multiplier, starts at x1 and increases by one with each meteor shower feature. This normal multiplier will be applied to the final winnings of each spin, before resetting for the next spin. 

However, a persistent multiplier is also active and will not reset in between spins. This multiplier also increases by one with each meteor shower feature and has a maximum value of x100. 

Ben Gunn Robinson – Mascot Gaming

Players take a retreat toa tropical island in Mascot Gaming’s latest slot, which presents a 5×3 reel board with 20-paylines and a bonus treasure hunt game mode. The game has an RTP of 95.06 per cent with medium volatility.

Wild treasure chests are available, substituting for all symbols other than treasure map scatters. 

Landing three treasure map scatters across reels one, three and five will activate the bonus game mode. In the feature, players are presented with several locations on a treasure map, each with either hidden prizes behind them or a ‘miss’ end game button. 

Players will continue selecting locations until they find the ‘miss’ end game button, with all collected prizes accumulated and awarded to the player’s payout. 

Additionally, if players collect five location prizes, they will be taken to the super bonus game. With this feature, players pick between two treasure chests that contain multipliers to enhance the bonus game wins.  

Furthermore, players can gamble their winnings after successful spins. To double their payout, players must guess which of four hidden cards will be higher than a revealed dealer card.
