Microgaming, NetEnt, And Play’n GO Release Brand New Video Slots

New Slots, December 19, 2019

Christmas is just around the corner and many game providers have been releasing their final video slots of the year. This week, although quieter than others, saw the launch of three new games by NetEnt, Play’n GO and Microgaming. Discover more about the brand new slots right here.

NetEnt was the first provider to launch a new game this week with its magical Wings Of Riches slot which takes players into an enchanted forest where pixies reside and players can make wins. Symbols in the game include several pixies and multi-coloured insects and flowers.

The game, which uses a 5×3 layout with 20 paylines, is packed with special features Spreading Wilds which transform nearby symbols into Wilds, Scatter symbols which trigger the Free Spins feature with up to 10 spins, and Multiplier symbols that can boost your winnings of up to 5x.

Bryan Upton, NetEnt’s Director Of Games, said of the slot: “Wings Of Riches is all about classic art style and multipliers with the Spreading Wilds. Using proven mechanics and an appealing theme should provide a solid performer for the core slot player all over the world.”

Microgaming’s Irish Slot

Microgaming followed the day after, launching its Irish-themed Stumpy McDoodles slot, developed by Foxium exclusively for Microgaming. This game uses a 5×3 layout with 20 paylines and has an RTP of 96.26%. Symbols in the game include leprechauns, four-leaf clovers, pots of gold and more.

The new slot is also packed with special features including Wild substitutions, Stumpy Random Wilds in which up to eight Wilds are randomly generated, a Rainbow Respin to help you trigger a special feature, and the Free Spins mode of up to 5 spins and a chance to earn more.

If that isn’t enough, the game’s Free Spins mode features two coins which can award you with more Wilds or spins, or multiply all of your winnings. Since the video slot was built by Foxium it includes special Foxium features including a chance to buy free spins and the Foxify feature which double the multiplier value and increases your bet by up to 50%.

Play’n GO’s Wild New Slot

Play’n GO launched their final slot of 2019 this week after unveiling the new game on its website. The provider’s new slot is titled Wild Frames and uses a 7×7 layout with zero paylines and an RTP of 94.5%. Users are required to match five or more identical symbols to create a winning combination, and the symbols include sevens, diamonds, stars, bells, as well as the playing card symbols.

Wild Frames is packed with special features including Frames which are created by Wild symbols when they land on the reels. Wild symbols also upgrade existing frames and stay active until the Charge Meter is full. Making winning combinations fills the Charge Meter by one point and users must collect 20, 40 and then 60 symbols to active the meter’s features.

The three Charge Meter features include Transform in which non-suit symbols are transformed into another symbol to help make winning combinations. There’s also the Wildcard in which three to six Wild symbols are added to the reels and the Shatter feature which removes all suit symbols.

Play’n GO CEO Johan Törnqvist said in a statement: “We are very excited about Wild Frames; it has a familiar feel about it due to the classic design, but it brings an exciting and engaging concept to a player’s session which anyone new or old to gaming can enjoy. It’s a great game to end a great year, but we’re not resting on our laurels. 2019 was amazing, and now the challenge is to step it up a level for 2020, it will be tough, but we know we can succeed.”

All of the new video slots are available to play now at most online casino operators.
