Blueprint Gaming, Evoplay and Relax Gaming: on the spin

Despite a lack of global holidays to tailor slots to, the industry continues to push out new releases. This week’s slot round-up includes a combination of classic themes from Blueprint Gaming, sugary spins with Evoplay and Relax Gaming’s gold-encrusted title. 

Plenty O’ Fish – Blueprint Gaming

Despite the title, Blueprint Gaming’s latest release lacks romance but does make use of two evergreen themes, Ireland and fishing. The slot presents a 6×4 reel board that has 4,096 ways to win to offer payouts of up to x50,000 the player’s bet, while using medium high volatility and an RTP of 94 per cent. 

Jo Purvis, Director of Marketing & Relationships at Blueprint Gaming, commented: “As we look to expand our portfolio, we combined proven themes to align fishing and Irish titles for Plenty O’ Fish – two of the most popular themes the slot sector has ever seen. 

“Adding a rich feature set to the crisp animation and catchy soundtrack means we’ve got another fantastic title in our tackle box.

“Players will love the ability to retrigger features, boosting excitement and reward alongside the free spins to ensure the slot stands apart in a crowded market.”

Bonus text flying fish scatters can appear, awarding 10, 15, 20 or 25 free spins when three, four, five or six scatters land on the same spin. 

Cash symbols are also available, appearing as fish symbols or gold coins. These cash symbols will display prize values that can be collected if a special collect leprechaun symbol lands on either the first or fifth reel. 

Additionally, gold coin prize symbols will apply themselves to a treasure chest that sits above the reel set.

This can randomly cause the treasure chest to reveal one of five game-enhancing features including jackpot wins, cash collect upgrades or access to the free spins feature. 

When gold coin symbols activate the treasure chest bonus, the chest can award one of these five features: 

  • Cash boost: every fish or coin symbol on the reels will have their prize values increased before being awarded to the player
  • Respin: all cash symbols on the board lock into place while a free respin occurs around them before all prize symbols are collected
  • Gold collect: each cash prize that is present on the reels is collected several times
  • Fixed jackpot: a jackpot wheel appears and awards either a mini (x15), minor (x25), major (x250) or mega (x2,500) jackpot prize
  • Access to the free spins feature

During the free spins feature, any gold coins that appear are guaranteed to trigger the treasure chest bonus. If the free spins option is revealed, players will gain five extra spins. 

Candy Craze – Evoplay

Evoplay has taken players on a trip to candyland for its latest sugary slot, showcasing a 5×5 reel title with scatter-pays and a maximum win of x10,000 on offer. This slot uses an RTP of 95.89 per cent while having high volatility. 

Ivan Kravchuk, CEO at Evoplay, commented: “Candy Craze transports users to an enchanting land full of treats and captivating features that capture the imagination of every player who navigates this intriguing title.

“We anticipate that Candy Craze’s action-packed gameplay alongside its vibrant animations and distinctive modifiers will resonate perfectly with our player base.”

Bonus text sweet scatters can appear, triggering the free spins feature when three land on a single spin. 

Meanwhile, gumdrop multipliers can drop into play, revealing multipliers from x2 to x100 to be applied to any wins that occur on the same spin they appear on. 

Cascading wins occur throughout the game, causing symbols in a winning formation to disappear after providing their payout, making way for new symbols to drop in from the top of the reels. 

In the free spins feature, collecting a certain number of gumdrop multipliers will cause the feature to upgrade to a higher level, awarding higher minimum multipliers. 

Players can also activate a ‘double chance’ function, increasing their stake by 50 per cent to double their chances of landing bonus scatters.

Furthermore, players can buy access to 10, 15 or 25 free spins for the price of x94, x206 or x753 their stake, respectively. 

Sultan Spins – Relax Gaming

Forget the Sultans of Swing, Relax Gaming has introduced players to the Sultans of spins with a new 5×4 reel slot that has 40-paylines and a maximum win of up to x5,000 the player’s wager. The slot is highly volatile with an RTP of 96.1 per cent. 

Shelley Hannah, CPO at Relax Gaming, stated: “The launch of Sultan Spins has brought together a host of high-performing features combined with stunning visuals to provide audiences with a fully immersive experience.

“The local jackpot is a particular element which will attract attention and drive unique win potential, plus the added excitement of free spins to enhance game experience with every spin.”

Bonus gold tiger scatters can appear, triggering the free spins feature when three land on the same turn. 

Additionally, gemstone symbols can drop into play, each causing the jackpot value for each reel to increase by one bet every time they land on the reels. 

After landing on the reels and increasing their respective jackpot prizes, gemstone symbols will reveal either a low, medium or high value symbol, a wild symbol or the jackpot spin feature, awarding one of the game’s five jackpot prizes. 

Each reel in this game has a corresponding jackpot prize, with the first reel displaying the smallest jackpot prize and the fifth reel showcasing the largest jackpot prize. 

Every time a gemstone drops into play, it will increase the jackpot prize in its reel by the size of one standard bet. 

The first reel’s progressive jackpot prize must be won before it reaches x25, while reels two, three, four and five’s jackpot prizes must be won before they reach x50, x250, x1,250 and x5,000 the player’s wager, respectively. 

When the free spins feature is triggered, players are given seven spins with a starting multiplier of x1. For every fifth scatter symbol that appears in the free spins game mode, the feature will upgrade. 

Once five scatters have been collected, seven extra spins will be awarded while the multiplier increases to x2. Then, collecting a further five, 10 and 15 scatters will award seven extra spins at each level, with multipliers of x4, x6 and x8, respectively. 

Heist: Bank Rush – Betsoft

Prepare to break the bank as Betsoft has planned a great diamond heist with its latest title, presenting a 5×4 reel slot with 1,024 ways to win and a maximum win of up to x25,735. With an RTP of 96.2 per cent, this title has high volatility.

Fernando Van Velzen, Head of Account Management at Betsoft, explained: ”With Heist: Bank Rush, we’ve taken the exhilaration and dynamism of the original Heist game to the next level.

“Our team has worked meticulously to craft a sequel that not only honours the legacy of its predecessor but also introduces innovative gameplay mechanics and features that promise to captivate both new players and fans of the original.

“We are thrilled to invite players to join this daring escapade and unlock the riches that await within the most secure bank vault in the city.”

Bonus diamond symbols are also available, displaying monetary prizes from x20 to x200 the player’s stake. Landing six or more diamonds on the same spin will activate the hold-and-win feature, in which the displayed diamond prizes can be won. 

In the hold-and-win game mode, players are given three spins to land as many diamond symbols on the reels as possible, while each symbol that appears throughout the game mode resets the number of spins to three. 

However, the high value heist character symbols can also appear in this feature, awarding different enhancing features. 

Yellow heist characters will collect all diamond values on the board and add them to their own value, while green heist characters display a value between x3 and x100 the player’s stake, before adding this value to one random diamond symbol between three and 10 times. 

Meanwhile, blue heist character symbols randomly select between two and four diamond symbols on the reels and multiply their values by either x2, x3, x4 or x5. 

Red heist characters will stay sticky on the reels for the duration of the bonus game mode, performing a random one of the three other character’s features on every subsequent spin. 

Once all three spins have been completed, players will receive the accumulated value of all diamond and character symbols that have appeared across the feature. 

Lastly, wild question mark symbols are included, substituting for all symbols other than the bonus diamonds. Landing two, three, four or five wilds on a winning payline will award x0.25, x0.75, x1.25 or x2.5 the player’s wager.
