NetEnt, Quickspin And Yggdrasil Announce Brand New Video Slots

NetEnt, Quickspin And Yggdrasil New Slots

NetEnt, Quickspin and Yggdrasil are several software providers who have all announced new slots.

Earlier this week, NetEnt announced the launch of its latest Asian-inspired slot Sweety Honey Fruity. The game uses a 5×3 layout with 15 paylines and includes Asian-inspired fruit-based symbols such as dragon fruit, melons and star fruit along with traditional playing card letters.

In the game, landing winning combinations of identical symbols will trigger the Free Spins feature where users can win up to five spins. Then, during the feature players can land additional spins by landing more identical winning combinations. Unfortunately, the game features no other bonus games.

In a statement, NetEnt’s Director of Games Bryan Upton said: “Asian-focused titles are a key part of our game release roadmap as we develop the theme within our portfolio in response to player and market demand. Sweety Honey Fruity quickly follows the successful launch of Twin Happiness and we have two more entertaining titles lined up before the end of the year. With each slot having its own unique style and features, we’re developing the offering for all types of slots fans.”

NetEnt’s Sweety Honey Fruity is available now at all NetEnt casino operators. 

Yggdrasil’s Upcoming Slot

Yggdrasil has unveiled its upcoming slot Age Of Asgard, a game based on Norse mythology that uses a 5×3 layout with 40 paylines. What’s unique about Yggdrasil’s latest slot is that the game actually uses two 5×3 reels for a huge game reel, providing customers with a chance to make additional winning combinations.

The game is packed with special features including its large Wild symbols which are 1×3 in height and can nudge to fill an entire reel. When this happens, players are automatically given an additional respin. Meanwhile, regular wilds substitute for other symbols to help create additional wins.

However, large Wild symbols can clash to spawn up to four smaller Wild symbols. When these land on high-paying symbols, the entire symbol transforms into a stacked symbol with Wilds. In addition to this, players can trigger the Free Spins feature by landing three or more Free Spins symbols, expanding the reel to 5×6 and rewarding the player with 10 spins.

Yggdrasil’s Age Of Asgard releases October 24th on all Yggdrasil casino operators. 

Quickspin’s Golden Glyph

Software provider Quickspin also announced the release of new slot Golden Glyph, the firm’s first reactor game based on Ancient Egypt. The slot uses a 7×7 layout but rather than using paylines, it uses a brand new tumbling mechanic in which winning symbols are removed from the reels by Eye of Horus with the help of some magic.

The slot is packed with special features which includes four unique Power-Ups including a Power Wild which creates a winning cluster each spin, Blaze Of Fire which pays for all high and low-paying symbols in its row and column, the Eye of Horus which pays for a randomly chosen low-paying symbol, and the Golden Scarab which adds four to ten random Wild symbols onto the reels.

If that isn’t enough, players can trigger the Free Spins bonus through the Power Wild bonus. When this happens, users are given three free spins for every Free Spin bonus activation. Lastly, the Golden Glyph Wild symbol substitutes for all Wild symbols and multiplies combinations by x1.

Clint Andersson, the Producer of Golden Glyph, said in a statement: “When we started working on Golden Glyph, we wanted to create a game that felt like a classic puzzle or tile-matching game, like ‘Puyo Puyo’ and ‘Bomberman: Panic Bomber’. We also wanted to combine the characteristics of these types of games with the power-up features of classic RPG games, like ‘Golden Axe’ or ‘Gauntlet’, where you get to collect and use power-ups to perform magic.”

Andersson described how he and the art team created the magical Power-Up wheel and the problems they ran into while doing so before describing the wheel as “one of the best parts of the game”. He then added: “I’m really happy with the result and I think it looks great!”

Quickspin’s Golden Glyph slot will be released November 12th on all Quickspin casino operators.
