As August draws to a close, an abundance of slot releases have hit the CasinoBeats inbox in the past week. Take a seat as we guide you through a selection of new games, including Push Gaming’s goat gala, Kalamba Games’ beer-drinking bonanza, Stakelogic’s fishing trip and more.
Goat Getter – Push Gaming
Wild goats bring multiplied wins in Push Gaming’s latest title, which presents a 5×6 reel board that uses scatter-pays of six or more identical symbols. While offering a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s wager, the slot has medium-high volatility with an RTP range of 94.39, 96.4 per cent.
Amit Samji, Head of Studio at Push Gaming, commented: “Goat Getter’s theme is a breath of fresh, clean mountain air among the leprechauns and pyramids of today’s market.
“But it isn’t just a well-appointed concept, the gameplay is tight and the features and mechanics weave together perfectly to deliver a simply great game. We’re sure this is one title that gets player’s goats in entirely the right fashion!”
When six or more cash pot symbols appear on the same spin, they will trigger a coin drop feature. This causes all present cash pots to drop to the bottom of the board while all other symbols disappear.
Once the symbols have disappeared, rocks appear in their place, and one by one, each rock will reveal either nothing, another cash pot symbol or a bonus scatter.
This increases the player’s chance of landing the 10 cash pot symbols needed to activate the cash pot payout, awarding all prize values displayed by the symbols to the player’s payout.
Each cash pot or bonus symbol that appears when the coin drop feature occurs will cause the feature to retrigger, providing an extra chance of landing more cash pot or bonus symbols.
When less than 10 cash pots are revealed, instant payouts will be provided for the number of cash pots on the reels, with six awarding x0.5 the player’s stake and seven, eight and nine awarding x1, x2 and x4 respectively.
During the free spins game mode, goat symbols can appear. These goat symbols will collect all cash pot values that appear on the same spin, while collecting five goat symbols will enhance a meter above the reels.
For every fifth goat that appears, a multiplier value will upgrade on every goat symbol, starting at x1 and progressing to x2, x5 and x10 when five goats are repeatedly collected.
Cashpot Kegs Megaways – Kalamba Games
Utilising the Megaways mechanic, Kalamba Games invites players to a German festival in its latest title. Showcasing a six reel slot with 46,656-ways to win, this booze-fueled slot uses medium-high volatility with an RTP of 96.9 per cent.
Alex Cohen, COO and Co-Founder at Kalamba Games, stated: “Cashpot Kegs Megaways builds upon the fan favourite title Cashpot Kegs and introduces the popular Megaways mechanic to the now iconic gameplay, which blends perfectly with the cashpots feature.
“With changing reel sizes and a goal of landing as many cashpots as possible to climb the pay ladder, players are provided a multifaceted release that elevates the entertainment experience and gameplay offered in the original.”
Low value symbols are represented by the high end of a deck of cards, from nine through to Ace. These symbols can offer between x0.2 and x1.5 the player’s stake, depending on the number of winning combinations that land on a single spin.
Meanwhile, salted pretzels, frankfurters, accordions and beer depict the high value symbols, offering between x0.3 and x4 the player’s wager.
Female Oktoberfest characters represent the bonus scatter, triggering nine, 12, 15 or 18 free spins if three, four, five or six land on the same spin respectively.
During the free spins, players can collect bonus star symbols to retrigger the game mode once they collect three stars.
Moreover, cash pot symbols can appear, awarding instant prizes if eight or more appear on the same spin. Landing between eight and 25 cash pots on the same spin will award prizes ranging from x5 to x25,000 the player’s bet.
Finally, wild text symbols are available, substituting for all symbols other than the bonus scatters and cash pot symbols.
Wild Wild Bass 2 – Stakelogic
Set sail on a fishing trip as Stakelogic has released its latest angling slot sequel. As a 6×3 reel slot with 2,304-ways to win, the slot offers a maximum win of up to x10,000 the player’s bet. The game also has high volatility and an RTP of 96.07 per cent.
Jose Simon Kadala, Head Account Manager at Stakelogic, stated: “Gone Fishin’. This is the sign that players will be hanging once they head to the river and cast their lines in Wild Wild Bass 2. This is a step up from the original, with even more monster wins to catch.
We look forward to seeing Wild Wild Bass 2 land in operator lobbies and for players to reel in the massive cash prizes swimming beneath the surface.”
When two wild symbols appear on the first two reels, the big catch feature occurs, causing the remaining four reels to extend from three symbols high to five. All fish symbols that drop into play on the remaining four reels will award their prizes as winnings during this feature.
Additionally, a special fish symbol can appear on the sixth reel during the big catch, presenting a number of spins from two to four. This number represents the number of spins to be awarded in the insane catch game mode, which is triggered when the special fish symbol appears.
In the insane catch game mode, reels one and two combine into one multiplier reel, while the remaining four columns turn into an empty grid.
As this game mode begins, players are given three spins to land as many fish symbols on the empty grid as possible, with each fish prize value being enhanced by a multiplier that is revealed in the first two reels on every insane catch spin.
These multipliers range from x1 to x10 and will apply themselves to every fish symbol present on the empty grid.
Special fish symbols can also appear in the insane catch grid, awarding additional spins for the game mode.
Furthermore, treasure chest symbols can also drop into play for this feature, awarding both a fish prize and a multiplier value to be applied to all fish symbols on the reels, before the overall multiplier is applied at the very end of the spin.
Mustang Trail – Pragmatic Play
As opposed to wild goats, wild horses roam the reels in Pragmatic Play’s latest release, showcasing a 5×3 reel slot with 10-paylines and a maximum win of up to x5,000 the player’s wager. While using an RTP of 96.04 per cent, the slot is highly volatile.
Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, explained: “Mustang Trail boasts a popular theme and a buildable bonus round that together provide an exciting gameplay experience for players. With retriggers that award more spins, along with a sticky wild, there’s a stampede of win potential on offer to spur some great rewards.”
Horses top the paytable as the high value symbol in this title. If the right number of paying combinations appear on a winning payline, these symbols can provide wins between x0.5 and x150 the chosen stake.
Gold horse scatters can also appear on reels one, three and five, triggering eight free spins if three or more land on the same turn. During these free spins, every third scatter that lands during the feature will retrigger it, awarding an additional five spins.
Furthermore, wild horse symbols are available, substituting for all symbols other than the gold scatters. Landing two, three, four or five wilds in a winning combination provides wins of x0.5, x5, x20 or x150, respectively.
Each time a wild symbol appears, it causes several other wild symbols to pop up in random positions across the board to increase the win potential.
Additionally, when the free spins feature is retriggered, a sticky wild is added to the board that stays in its place for the duration of the bonus game mode.
Savage Buffalo Spirit Megaways – BGaming
The second Megaways game in this selection, BGaming has transported players to the desert plains of North America with a six-reel slot that has up to seven rows, 117,649-ways to win and a maximum win of up to x6,000 the player’s stake. This slot uses high volatility with an RTP of 97.04 per cent.
Yulia Aliakseyeva, Co-CPO at BGaming, said: “The buffalo is one of the most powerful beasts in the animal kingdom and hugely popular with our players – which is why we are delighted to bring him back for Savage Buffalo Spirit Megaways.
“Just like a buffalo’s charge is unpredictable, the ever-changing number of symbols on the reels gives players an unbeatable, thrilling gaming experience.”
As a Megaways title, the slot showcases an additional top horizontal reel above the middle four reels, adding an extra symbol for columns two to five.
Cascading wins are also available, enhancing each win as every winning symbol disappears after each payout to make way for new symbols, increasing the win potential.
When activating the free spins feature, a spinning mechanism spins through different numbers of free spins to award between five and 15 free turns, as well as a multiplier between x2 and x25. These multipliers will be implemented to every win that occurs in the awarded free spins.
Moreover, players can retrigger the feature by landing three or more scatters on the same free spin. When this occurs, the spinner will award another random number of spins and another multiplier, the values of which will be added to what is left of the initial values the player received.
