Quickspin Tease of New and Upcoming Games
Diamond Duke may have only just hit the online casino scene but Quickspin are back with a preview into their next two releases; Arcane Gems and Vampire Senpai. May 12th saw Diamond Duke grace our screens with its one-arm bandit style appearance, dazzling players with an attractive 3×3 layout of diamonds, bells, cherries – well just about every symbol you’d expect from a classic sot, only this one offers a multiplier option and wins of up to 8000x your stake!
The super valuable diamond symbol is the key to huge wins, although so too can any other symbol, providing it falls to fill the entire reel engine! It’s highly volatile, highly fun and highly immersive! A bonus wheel and a multiplier wheel appearing will kick-start the pick and click bonus with its ‘real slot machine’ style of play.
Bjarne Grönnevik, Producer: “Diamond Duke is a real nostalgia trip that combines our first classic 3×3 slot with extremely high volatility! It’s a great testament to our versatility as its expanding our portfolio with something completely new and unique, both in terms of the graphics and the math.
This game was designed with our ‘portrait first’ approach, to give players the best possible gaming experience on mobile devices. Our main design philosophy was that when you pick up the phone to play, it should feel like you’re actually holding a physical object in your hand – and I think we’ve really achieved this.”
Make a note of June the 9th as this is the day Arcane Gems will launch; a fun 3×4 slot made entirely of high definition 3D graphics and lots of cool features. Arcane lock mechanics. And multipliers give the game a super boost and this can lead to wins of up to 5265x your stake.
Your quest is to find a jewellery box packed with treasures within a dense jungle. Naturally, you bypass the voyage and the trek by landing yourself right in the heart of the action. Every spin of the reels will see you hunt down the lost bling and when a win is found, the Arcane lock mechanics kick in.
All highest paying symbols will lock in place and others and any other winning combinations will be paid instantly. A re-spin ensues, and should you land matching symbols, the process continues. Fill the entire reel with locked symbols and trigger a multiplier of between 2x and 5x. If all five reels are stacked with the same symbol, a multiplier of 25x will boost your winnings!
Clint Andersson, Producer at Quickspin had this to say on the upcoming release: “The game contributes with a whole new standard of rendering graphic fidelity in a game for the portfolio. Initially, the story behind the game comes from one of my personal favourite 3×5 slots, but the game is old, and I wanted to add improvements to it while still maintaining the true feeling of the original.
The artists working on this game were adamant about pushing the graphic fidelity of this game to increase the richness of the symbols and how to present value. The game is made fully in 3D and boasts cool features such as the Arcane Lock, which locks symbols of the same type and Arcane Multiplier, where a random multiplier is given to the player any time a reel is locked which adds for extra excitement.
As for the inspiration for Arcane Gems, it comes from the gathering needs of all people, the jewels to be eye-catching in a way that fascinates a little more than is usual in video slots. We have taken inspiration from AAA-produced games in the casual-gaming market to find a style that adds to our already existing style. Our graphic designers and developers used the latest standard in web rendering.”
Let’s talk about vampires. Notoriously portrayed as blood-sucking beasts who defy the fate of time, they look like humans, talk like humans but are anything but human. Legend has it that garlic and holy water can keep you safe, but nothing is as certain until a wooden stake is taken to their heart!
July 14th will see the release of Vampire Senpai, a slot theme taken from Chinese folklore where vampires are anything but usual. An adventure for big wins will see you travel across a colourful and prosperous world filled with hopping vampires – cute undead creatures who need humans to survive.
It’s a tongue-in-cheek take on what’s usually a horror genre and we think it works well. Quickspin are promising the slot will be packed with plenty of suspense and anticipation, despite its bright and upbeat appearance. A random mystery feature can spring into action on any spin (of any value) during the base game and create between 3 and 9 Talisman wilds.
Free spins see the theme get a lot darker and when a Jiangshi wild appears, they will hop around and sink their teeth into any medium value human symbol that appears next to them and this in turn creates more wilds and more wins (hopefully!).
The trio of games join the award-winning software developers ever-expanding portfolio with many different games to suit different tastes. April saw the release of Nero’s Fortune shortly after Panther’s Reign. Wild Cauldron and Skulls Up came at the start of the year – two very exciting titles with big pay potential.
They’ve certainly come a long way since 2011 when they were founded and have rapidly established themselves as a leading supplier in online casino games. Just 5-years after launching, Quickspin was acquired by Playtech and is now licensed to offer gaming services in many jurisdictions via many leading operators; PlayOJO and Mr Green to name a few.
