Microgaming Teases of What’s to Come in January
Kicking the New Year off in style, Microgaming’s first release follows a magical leprechaun called Shamrock Holmes, who you guessed, is very much the best detective in his ‘field’. His quest is one of uncovering princely riches, but it’ll take a lot more than just a sprinkling of magic to get you there. Boasting the iconic Megaways reel engine, Shamrock Holmes offers players a cascading reel engine, wild symbols, a magical rainforest re-spin and the elusive free spins feature with an accompanying multiplier, but what does it take to win?
Three golden coins appearing ‘could’ trigger the magical rainforest re-spin…we say could because it’s not always guaranteed. If the three coins start to emit a rainbow of colours, the feature is on! Now, this re-spin guarantees a set number of ways to win, sometimes it’s 10,000 other times it’s the max of 117,649, but just because you’ve landed the feature, doesn’t mean you’re going to win, so bear that in mind. Four golden coins sees the free spins feature kick in where cascading reels and consecutive wins lead to an increase in the win multiplier. The more coins you have in view (over the 4), the more spins you’ll trigger and there’s the option of being able to land more spins via the actual free spins feature, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
The Bounty by Snowborn Games is a true western-themed slot where rewards are offered for the capture of thieves. Expect plenty of gunslinging action through free spins, multipliers, a jackpot and stacked symbols can produce epic thrills! Having the volume up with this one is a must, especially if you’re a fan of Spaghetti Westerns.
FoxPot launched on the 12th with its classic setup – 3-reels and just the 1 win line. Foxium’s creation offers the player a touch of nostalgia with a few modern touches, only without the complication of today’s bonus mechanisms. That being said, there’s an instant win, multiplier and re-spin feature to benefit from with this one, as well as a max win of 10,000x your stake.
Another Old West-themed title makes an appearance on the 17th – Golden Stallion Ultraways by Northern Lights Gaming. This highly-volatile slot promises adventure through free spins, scatters and reels that offer split symbols which can lead to winning on up to 196,608 ultraways! Not only that but a golden sequence mechanism which offers up to 20 spins with highlighted reels and higher paying wilds! A lot more thrills and ways to win than a typical Megaways slot that’s for sure!
And more is to come; Hyper Strike by Gameburger Studios, Pachinko by Neko Games, Forgotten Island Megaways, Whisker Jones by 1×2 Gaming, Bondi Break by Lightning Box Games, 777 Mega Deluxe by Crazy Tooth Studio, Animals of Africa by Golden Coin Studios and Roulette x5 by Golden Rock Studios on January 28th.
