Microgaming, NetEnt, Play’n GO And Yggdrasil Release New Slots
Slot fans are in for a treat this week as five new slot games have launched from various providers.
Game developers Microgaming, NetEnt, Yggdrasil and Play’n GO have all announced new slot releases this week all featured on themes such as fairies, the Wild West and hockey.
On Tuesday (July 23) Microgaming announced its Break Away Deluxe, a hockey-themed online slot developed by Stormcraft Studios for the acclaimed game provider. The action-packed and mobile-friendly slot, which is an updated version of Microgaming’s original release, uses a 5×5 layout with a choice of 16, 38, 68 or 88 paylines.
Break Away Deluxe features Super Stacked Wilds to help players land additional winning combinations as well as a Smashing Wild feature where one of the game’s three middle reels randomly turns Wild and freezes in place for guaranteed wins. In addition, the game has a Free Spins feature where you can win up to 12 spins with an 8x multiplier.
In a statement, James Buchanon, the Director of Global Operations at Microgaming, said: “Break Away Deluxe takes all the action of the phenomenally popular original slot, layering it up with even more exciting and rewarding features. Stormcraft Studios have successfully created a high volatility slot experience, with excellent win potential up to 3,200x the initial bet.”
He continued: “We’re looking forward to seeing fans and new players alike immerse themselves in this engrossing update of a true Microgaming classic.”
NetEnt’s Grand Spin
NetEnt announced the release of two new slots this week. The popular game provider, which developed games such as Dead Or Alive and Starburst, announced the launch of its Grand Spinn and progressive jackpot version of the slot Grand Spinn Superpot.
The two games use a 3×3 layout with one payline, resembling the classic fruit slot machines. It includes Multiplier Wilds which can help you land big winning combinations, a nudging reels feature and it provides players with a chance to randomly trigger a jackpot win.
The Grand Spinn Superpot version, meanwhile, simply adds a progressive jackpot to the game similar to those found on NetEnt slots Hall Of Gods, Divine Fortune and Mega Fortune.
Bryan Upton, NetEnt’s Director of Games, said: “Players might be stepping back to the 1920s in our Art Deco-inspired Grand Spinn, but the size of the potential prizes and jackpots on offer in Grand Spinn Superpot are very much from the 21st century. As a dual release, no matter a player’s pay-out style preference, there’s a version for them. There is a strong need for simple yet entertaining games with unique features – these two games do exactly that, with some style of course!”
Play’n GO’s Firefly Frenzy
Play’n GO revealed their latest release on Wednesday (July 24). Firefly Frenzy is a 5×4 slot with 30 paylines that is based on a rather unique and colourful theme. Set in an unusually bright forest, the game’s rich colours light up the reels to help bring the game to life and provide users with an exciting experience.
The slot’s Firefly Frenzy slot, triggered by landing a Firefly Wild on the Moon symbol, provides players with Wild Multipliers which can help users make more winning combinations with potentially large payouts.
Compared to most Play’n GO slots, Firefly Frenzy doesn’t feature much of a narrative and instead focuses on providing players with a simple gaming experience they can enjoy.
Yggdrasil’s One Armed Bandit
Finally, Yggdrasil announced the launch of their latest slot The One Armed Bandit. The game, which is set in the Wild West, follows a courageous sheriff who attempted to drive evil bandits out of his town.
The One Armed Bandit uses a 5×3 layout with 20 paylines. Symbols on the reels include guns, cowboy hats, flasks and playing card symbols. Yggdrasil’s slot is also packed with special features such as the Free Spins which benefits from multiplier wins and the Wild symbols which give a 5x multiplier with each winning combination.
Natalya Ovchinnikova, the Product Owner of Slots at Yggdrasil, said: “We’re excited to present our own twist on a classic theme. What’s great about this game is its super high volatility and huge win potential, combined with its interesting way of triggering and entering free spins, ensuring players get the ultimate Wild West experience.”
All the new slot releases are available now and can be found at participating online casinos.
