Microgaming, Pragmatic Play, Quickspin and Play’n GO have all announced the release brand new slot games this week.
Microgaming was one of the first providers to announce a new slot, unveiling their new game on Wednesday (October 30). The firm’s new game, developed by Fortune Factory Studios for Microgaming, is titled Long Mu Fortunes and is based on the Chinese myth of Long Mu, a Chinese woman regarded as a goddess for raising five infant dragons.
The new slot uses a 5×3 layout with 10 paylines and is packed with special features. Multi-coloured dragons each act as various Wild symbols that affect gameplay differently, either providing players with multipliers, expanding across reels to help create more winning combinations and much more. What’s more, players can win one of two jackpots in the game for a life-changing win!
Microgaming’s Director of Global Operations James Buchanan said in a statement: “Fortune Factory Studios has delivered an enchanting slot exclusive to Microgaming, complete with lavish visuals and a mystical soundtrack. Long Mu Fortunes is a colourful, high-volatility slot packed with exciting features. The addition of the Jackpot Feature and the Nudging Multiplier Wild stacks create an extremely satisfying gameplay experience.”
Phelan Sykes, the Head of Game Production at Fortune Factory Studios, added: “Long Mu Fortunes brings a classic Chinese myth to life, interpreting the legend into exciting and highly volatile gameplay. Boasting classically stunning graphics, Long Mu Fortunes is dripping with opulence and riches. We can’t wait for players to experience the power and majesty of Long Mu’s dragons and immerse themselves in the world of Long Mu Fortunes.”
Pragmatic Play’s Honey Honey Honey Slot
Pragmatic Play also launched a brand new video slot this week, titled Honey Honey Honey. The brand new game uses a 5×3 layout with 20 paylines and focuses on a bee theme. The slot takes place in a forest with honey-covered symbols including flowers, playing card symbols, jars of honey and more.
The Wild Bee symbol substitutes for all symbols except the Bonus, represented by a beehive, which can trigger the Free Spins feature. If you land one to three bees can appear and must be selected to provide the player with a random spin feature including Honey Wilds where five to ten Wild symbols are added to the reel, Sticky Streak which triggers a respin, Win Spin which credits player 30x their bet, Five of a Kind which guarantees a five-symbol win, and the Free Spin feature.
In a statement, Pragmatic Play’s Yossi Barzeley said: “Honey Honey Honey is a fun take on slot games, and the game has a real buzz about it. With plenty of features, and a number of interactive choices, the slot is another exciting addition to our slot portfolio which continues to go from strength to strength.”
Play’n GO’s Honey Rush
Following from Pragmatic Play’s honey-themed slot, Play’n GO has announced the release of its Honey Rush game. The brand new slot ditches paylines and reels for a unique hexagonal cluster system which requires players to match multiple symbols in clusters to create wins.
The new slot includes numerous special features including the Sticky Wild in which the Wild Honey Pot symbols substitute for all other symbols and can multiply wins up to 27x the original bet. What’s more, these Sticky Wilds will move to an adjacent space to help players create additional winning combinations.
Play’n GO CEO Johan Törnqvist said of the slot: “Honey Rush is a prime example of what we are capable of, and the high-quality entertainment people have come to expect from Play’n GO, and we always deliver. It has a unique shape, an engaging format, and most of all is a lot of fun to play. People are going to be enjoying this game for a very long time.”
Quickspin Announces Christmas-Themed Slot Polar Paws
Quickspin, meanwhile, announced the future launch of its upcoming Christmas-themed slot Polar Paws. The new game was set for a December 10th release but the slot provider bumped it up to the 3rd in order to give players more time to enjoy the slot throughout December and through the lead-up to Christmas.
The new slot is based on Quickspin’s Goldilocks game and is packed with winter-themed symbols including elves, polar bears and much more. Unfortunately, the slot provider kept tight-lipped regarding the game’s special features and refused to give out any more information until closer to the slot’s release.
