From the American Wild West to the Orient, this week is about to see some great new online slots, each taking players to great adventures they can actually experience from the comfort of their home.
Casino News Daily has checked out some of the upcoming new releases set to hit the market in the coming days and is offering slots enthusiasts a quick look at what’s coming out.
Venture into an enchanted forest with Wizard of the Woods by 2 By 2 Gaming
The latest addition to 2 By 2 Gaming’s diverse portfolio arrives today, May 4. The new Wizard of the Woods slot takes players to a magical adventure with a powerful silver-haired wizard deep into an enchanted forest.
The game offers beautiful graphics with a matching soundtrack and exciting gameplay. Experience is enhanced by several special features.
Playing Wizard of the Woods players can encounter beautiful creatures of the forest and get overwhelmed with the magic that trickles from every corner of the gaming screen.
The new slot features a standard 5×3 grid with 25 paylines. Lower paying symbols include the card royals from J to A, while higher paying symbols are represented by magic crystals, potions, a magic staff, a beautiful elf with a crown of flowers in her hair, and the wizard himself.
The wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols on the reels except the scatter. It is the highest paying symbol in the game, rewarding players with 80x their stake for five of a kind.
A full stack of wilds on the third reel trigger the Wizard Magic Feature. During this special feature, the wizard appears and either converts one or two symbols into wilds, or pays up to 10x the total bet.
The Free Spins mode is unlocked when three scatters land on reels two, three, and four. Players are awarded 10 free spins. During the Free Spins mode, the Wizard Magic Feature appears more frequently.
Down the rabbit hole with Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah by Microgaming
We are all mad here for a new Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot and Microgaming is set to deliver one on May 5.
Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah is developed by Triple Edge Studios, one of the independent studios creating content exclusively for Microgaming.
As its name suggests, the latest addition to the Mega Moolah line-up is themed around Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. And the colorful imagery and accompanying soundtrack aptly represent the curious world that Alice finds herself in after she falls down the rabbit hole.
Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah features a classic 5-reel, 3-row layout with 243 win ways. The paytable shows ten symbols – four lower paying ones represented by the four card suits and six higher paying ones that are much more Wonderland-ish and include a pocket watch, teacups, a butterfly cupcake, a white rabbit cake, a Cheshire cat cake, and the Mad Hatter. That latter symbol serves as the highest paying one, awarding 10x the stake for a winning combo of five of a kind.
Microgaming’s new progressive jackpot slot has several special features, starting with the Rolling Reels feature. It sees winning symbols dissolve to create room for new ones, giving players another chance to score a win.
The Rolling Reels feature continues to roll for as long as new winning combos appear. It also has a multiplier trail at the bottom of the screen where wins come with a multiplier of x1, x2, x3, and maxes out at x5. The multiplier resets when the feature ends.
The Free Spins features is unlocked when three door scatter symbols appear on the reels. The multiplier trail is active during the Free Spins mode, as well. It starts at x3 and increases to x6, x9, and x15. The Free Spins game can be extended to a total of 48 additional free spins.
And it is finally time to dwell on the Jackpot feature. What players need here is the golden hat wild, which lands on reels two, three, and four and substitutes for all other symbols on the reels. Whenever a wild hits the reels, it is collected in a pot above the grid.
The end of a Rolling Reels feature can activate the Progressive Wheel. The jackpot wheel then appears on the screen with its 20 sections, each offering the chance for players to win a mini, minor, major, or the mega jackpot.
A fiery encounter with a Royal Golden Dragon by Swintt
Swintt’s latest release is set to hit the market on May 5. It uses traditional Chinese imagery and sounds as its theme.
Royal Golden Dragon features a 5×3 grid layout and 20 paylines. Built in HTML5, the game is focused on serving the needs of the mobile user and is available across all devices.
The new Chinese-themed game comes with a plethora of features and special symbols, including regular and expanding symbols, sticky wilds, and free spins.
A look at the paytable offers a nice variety of lower and higher paying symbols. The low pays include the card symbols from 10 to A, stylized to bring a Chinese feel and vibe. The higher paying symbols include traditional drums, letters, a porcelain jar, gold coins, a golden bell, golden turtles, and yuanbao.
A golden dragon acts as the wild symbol and the highest paying symbol on the paytable, awarding 2,000x the line bet for five of a kind. There is an all-present, fixed wild in the center of the grid. That wild occasionally turns other symbols landing on the reels into wilds for a greater win potential.
The scatter symbol is represented by a traditional Chinese temple. Three or more scatters on the reels unlock the Wheel Bonus Feature. It then awards either Free Spins or Fix Bet Multipliers.
Wild West adventure with Deadwood by Nolimit City
Nolimit City welcomes players to Deadwood, a typical Wild West town with a dusty and bustling main street, horses and donkey carts all around, and dastardly gunslingers. Deadwood, the newest slot crafted by the online casino games maker, is set to hit the market on May 6.
The game comes with a 5-reel grid with a 3-4-4-4-3 row setting. It thus delivers 576 win ways. Deadwood’s paytable shows 13 symbols, beginning with low pays represented by the 10-A card symbols. The premiums include a double barrel shotgun, Deadwood whiskey bottle, money safe, gold pocket watch, and bars of gold. The latter acts as the highest paying symbol, giving players 3.75x the stake for five of a kind.
Deadwood is packed with special features. The one that players will come across the most throughout base game is Hunter Wild, a fully stacked wild that can appear on reels two, three, and four. When it appears just partly, it nudges to cover the entire reel. For every step the Hunter Wild nudges, the win multiplier increases by x1. The Wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols except the Scatter and the Bonus symbols.
The Shoot Out feature is triggered when the Sheriff Badge symbol lands on reels one and five during base game. It sees all win symbols on the three center reels turn into Wilds.
The Free Spins feature is triggered when three Scatters roll on the reels. Players get the chance to choose between 8 Gunslinger Spins and 8 Hunter Spins.
The Gunslinger Spins bring high risk and high win potential. Hunter Wilds landing on the reels during the Gunslinger Spins mode activate an unlimited win multiplier which remains active throughout the entire round. With each nudge of the Hunter Wilds, the win multiplier increases by x1.
When a Sheriff Badge appears on reels one or five, an additional spin is awarded to players. If the Sheriff Badge symbol appears on both reels one and five, the feature is upgraded to Shoot Out Gunslinger Spins where the Sheriff Badge symbols are locked in their position to transform all low value symbols on reels two, three, and four into wilds.
If players choose the Hunter Spins option, they are guaranteed to land at least one Hunter Wild during each spin. The rest is the same as with Gunslinger Spins, including the activation of the Shoot Out Gunslinger Spins mode.
Aside from the above-mentioned ways, the Shoot Out Gunslinger Spins can also be activated during base game when players land two Sheriff Badge symbols and three Scatters within a spin.
