Microgaming, Play’n GO, And Pragmatic Play Launch New Video Slots
Another new week has passed and its seen the launch of new video slots from Microgaming, Pragmatic Play, and Play’n GO. These new slots offer players a musical experience, a new take on the traditional fruit slot machines, as well as an exciting football-based experience.
Microgaming’s Footie Slot
Microgaming was one of the first to launch a game this week with its 11 Champions video slot developed by Gameburger Studios for Microgaming. This football-themed slot uses a 5×3 layout with 20 paylines, and it has an RTP of 95.93%. Symbols in the game include football jerseys, medals, football boots, and the traditional playing card letters and numbers.
The special features in the game include a the Champion mechanic and Action Reel above the reel which appears horizontally and determines when and how the game’s Blazing Wild Stream, which offers more Wilds, activities. The Action Reel also determines the outcome of the Champion including remaining stationary, moving to a random position, and triggering the Blazing Wild Streem with Multipliers.
There’s also a Bonus symbol as well as a Jackpot Bonus which provides players with a chance to win one of four jackpots. There are Wild substitutions, the ability to customise your team’s kit, and so much more too.
Pragmatic Play’s Fruity Slot
Pragmatic Play released its new video slot this week in partnership with Reel Kingdom. The slot, titled Ultra Burn, is a modern take on the classic fruit slot machines. It uses a 3×3 layout with five paylines and it has an RTP of 96.62%. Symbols in the game include sevens, oranges, lemons, cherries, bar symbols, star symbols, and more.
Ultra Burn will be a polarising slot as the game doesn’t offer any distinct special features. There is no Free Spins mode, there are no Wild symbols or Scatter symbols, and no Bonus mechanics or game rounds. Still, the game is visually impressive and anyone looking for a more simplistic experience will enjoy it.
Pragmatic Play’s Chief Commercial Officer Melissa Summerfield said in a statement: “Ultra Burn is another exciting addition to our growing slot portfolio. With a traditional feel to the game, combined with huge win opportunity, it has the potential to be one of the hottest games around. The slot’s simple mechanics and fast, fun gameplay make it perfect for players seeking the traditional fruit machine feeling, with the convenience of online play.”
Play’n GO Gets Musical
Play’n GO also released a new video slot this week titled Twisted Sister. The game is based on the American rock band of the same name who rose to stardom in the 80s with the album Stay Hungry. The slot, like many of Play’n GO’s other musical slots, is based around the band and their iconic album. It uses a 6×6 layout with zero paylines, and it has an RTP of 94.2%. Symbols in the game are modelled after the band members and include various other rock-themed symbols.
The slot is packed with special features including the Guitar Charge meter which is filled with every winning band member symbol. The Guitar then triggers band features including the Scream bonus which destroys non-band member symbols, the Go Wild bonus which transforms selected symbols into Wilds, and the Unite bonus which transforms symbols into others. There’s also the We’re Not Gonna Take It which offers Multipliers, Wild substitutions, Scatter symbols, and more.
Twisted Sister also features music from the band and was made in collaboration with the band members. Speaking about the video slot, Play’n GO CPO Martin Zettergren said: “Their distinctive style of music has allowed us to create a game with innovative features, meaning it will appeal to fans fo quality slot entertainment, as well as fans of the band, there’s something for everyone.”
