Microgaming, Yggdrasil, And Play’n GO Launch New Video Slots

Microgaming, Play'n GO and Yggdrasil New Slots

This week developers Microgaming, Yggdrasil, and Play’n GO have all launched brand new video slots. The brand new games whisk players to the past as they follow two hilarious cavepeople, allows players to experience the lush and luxurious life of a celebrity, and enjoy a groundbreaking new mechanic from Yggdrasil. So what are we all waiting for? Let’s jump right in!

Microgaming’s Anderthals

Anderthals, a new slot developed by Just For The Win exclusively for Microgaming, follows cave-couple Andy and Annie Anderthal as they navigate their pre-historic world in search of wins. The game, which uses a 5×4 layout with 40 paylines, has an RTP of 96.12% and is packed with fun visuals and several unique gameplay mechanics.

Anderthals has four Wild symbols which vary in size and all substitute for other symbols but Feature Symbols to create more wins. Two Wild symbols include Multipliers of 2x and 3x to boost all winnings. Feature Symbols, meanwhile, activate some of the game’s various special features.

This includes a Free Spins mode of up to eight free spins. Landing two additional Free Spins Feature Spots will trigger an additional two spins. Other feature spots include Multipliers of between 1x and 2x, as well as Re-Spins, Expanding Wilds, Additional Wilds, and Wild Multipliers. All of this can help you make some big wins.

Play’n GO Gets Rich

Play’n GO also released a new video slot this week. The game, titled That’s Rich, provides players with a taste of the rich and luxurious life. The new slot uses a 5×3 layout with 10 paylines and has an RTP of 94.3%. Symbols in the game include celebrity magazines, yachts, awards, mansions, money, and traditional letters and numbers.

Some of the special features in the video slot include Expanding Wilds which are triggered on any random spin and substitute for other symbols, a Win Spins feature where landing three or more Scatters triggers five Win Spins with Wilds, and Multipliers. More spins can be triggered up to a maximum of 20.

What’s special about this slot is that it uses Play’n GO’s Win Spin feature which is similar to Free Spins but players are guaranteed a win on every single spin in the feature. What’s more, the maximum Multiplier in the game will see players win up to 10,000x their bet for massive wins!

Yggdrasil Gets Popping

Finally, Yggdrasil launched a new slot this week titled PopRocks. The brand new video slot was developed by AvatarUX Studios under the YG Masters programme for Yggdrasil. The game, which uses a 5×3 layout with 486 paylines, has an RTP of 96.8% and uses Yggdrasil’s brand new PopWins gameplay mechanic.

In the game, every winning combination will pop and two new symbols will be added to the reels, extending the height of each of the reels up to a maximum of seven symbols high. Other features in the game include Multipliers which increase by one point with every seven symbols that pop.

There are also Unlock Wilds which are triggered when all reels are expanded to seven symbols high. When this happens, one Wild is awarded randomly and Multipliers increase by two points for every seven pops rather than by one point, helping you make bigger wins and winning combinations.
