Another week has flown by so sit back and relax as we guide you through another selection of new slot releases, including RubyPlay’s reel-splitting diamond hunt, Playson’s canine caper, SYNOT Games’ bullfighting bonanza and more. 

Immortal Ways: Diamonds – RubyPlay

RubyPlay has presented its latest slot mechanic, splitting the reels into two as players aim to collect bonus wheel symbols on a six-reel slot with a 4-5-5-5-5-4 row set-up. While offering 10,000-ways to win and four jackpots, the slot uses medium volatility with an RTP of 96.29 per cent. 

Dr. Eyal Loz, CPO of RubyPlay, stated: “We’re extremely excited to debut Immortal Ways, the product of much hard work and innovation from the RubyPlay team. This mechanic presents an entirely new and unique way to enjoy slots, with Immortal Ways: Diamonds seeing a fantastic reception since its launch.

“This release features 10,000-ways to win, with large symbol stacks and persistent coins combining for monster winning potential.”

With the Immortal Ways mechanic, the reel set is divided into two halves. One half covers reels one to three, with the other covering reels four to six. Gold coins that drop into play will stay on the board for three spins, with any additional gold coins that drop into their half within those spins resetting the number of spins back to three. 

If players manage to land a full half with gold coins symbols, they will receive the accumulated value of all gold coins present on that half of the board. 

Meanwhile, bonus wheel scatters can drop into either half to spin a wheel in either the first or sixth reel, depending on which half it drops into. 

Loz continued: “We’re already developing the next range of titles within this new game series, dominating our product roadmap for the remainder of 2023. It’s a volatile and rewarding experience, and we’re sure it’ll be an immortal player go-to.”

Spinning this wheel can either award an extra gold coin in its place with a value of x5, x6, x7, x8, x9 or x10 the player’s bet, one of four jackpot prizes, multipliers to be applied to any available coins or a collect function to award players the accumulated value of all coins on that half of the board. 

While awarding instant payouts, the diamond scatter symbols will also provide eight free spins when three or more drop in on the same spin. 

During these free spins, gold coins will not be removed after three spins, but will stay sticky until the free spins end or a collect feature is activated. 

Wolf Land: Hold and Win – Playson

Playson has players howling at the moon with its latest slot title, showcasing a 5×4 board with 25-paylines and a maximum win of up to x3,000 the player’s bet. The slot offers wins through full moon bonuses, mystery clouds, free spins and more. 

Tamas Kusztos, CCO at Playson, said: “Our Hold and Win portfolio continues to thrill players and Wolf Land: Hold and Win is another excellent example of this classic library of slots.

“The Boost and Extra Bonus features are always well-received by players and the engrossing gameplay and aesthetics will keep users entertained as they get set to ascend the mountain range in search of treasure.”

Full moon symbols are also available, displaying either monetary values between x1 and x15 the player’s bet or jackpot prizes of mini (x20), minor (x50) or major (x100). Landing six or more moon symbols on the same spin will activate the hold and win game mode. 

Additionally, moons can appear depicting ‘boost’ text. These symbols will collect all moon values present on the reels and apply them to a winning payout. 

In the hold-and-win game mode, players are given three spins to land as many moon symbols on a reel set as possible. Each additional symbol that drops into play will reset the number of spins to three. 

Once all three spins have been played out, the player will receive the accumulated value of all moon symbols on the reels, in addition to any jackpot prize moons that have dropped in. 

Players can win the game’s maximum win of x3,000, the grand jackpot prize, if they manage to land a full reel set of moon symbols during the bonus game mode. 

Mystery cloud symbols can only appear in the hold-and-win game mode, revealing either monetary values or jackpot prizes once the feature finishes. However, if a boost symbol is active on the board, the mystery symbol will be revealed immediately. 

Finally, wolf wild symbols can drop into play, substituting for all symbols other than moon symbols and mountain scatters. 

Toro Wilds Reel – SYNOT Games

Olé! SYNOT Games has invited players to step into the bullring with a 5×4 reel slot that offers 50-paylines and a maximum win of up to x2,000 the player’s wager. The slot has medium volatility with an RTP range of 85.03-98.03 per cent.
