Two New Microgaming Slots Join Online Casino Lobby
Just a week ago we brought you news on a trio of new gaming titles from Microgaming, the Isle of Man based software provider and now we’re back again with not one, but two new video slots! Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx and Volatile Slot are the latest thrilling slots and they’re already available to play online.
Adventurous ride with Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx
Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx is the second chapter in the adventure series and this time, Jim is ready to unearth big wins. Developed for online casinos exclusively by Stormcraft Studios, this latest instalment follows Jim on an epic quest for lost treasure across a 5-reel expanding reel engine. Initially, the base game engine boasts 35 fixed win lines but this could lead to 50 with consecutive wins.
Rolling reels or cascading reels as they’re also known, cater for the potential for more than one win in a single spin and this is when the magic begins with increasing multipliers. The ancient Egyptian themed slot also offers a win booster option where you stake a little more to bring more chance of winning.
Winnings symbols are blasted from the reels with new ones falling into place and once three consecutive wins have taken place, the reels expand to a 5×5 instead of 5×4 to deliver an additional 15 win lines with a 4x multiplier. Plus, a re-spin is awarded on a non-winning reveal. Three scatter symbols unlock 12 free spins with a multiplier trail of up to 20x attached to each win and this could land wins of up to 6250x your stake!
James Buchanan, Director of Global Operations at Microgaming said on its release: “We are so excited for the return of this iconic character in Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx. Jungle Jim is ready to dig up incredible rewards with win potential of up to 6,250x. The combination of innovative game mechanics and a graphically rich visual experience makes this latest instalment of Jungle Jim a game not to miss!”
Terence Igesund, Executive Producer at Stormcraft Studios added: “Jungle Jim is back and ready for his next big adventure! The team at Stormcraft are very excited to launch this long-anticipated sequel, Jungle Jim and the Lost Sphinx. With decades of industry experience behind us, we set out to create a beautifully crafted and highly engaging gaming experience, loaded with innovative features and great win potential. The intriguing storyline supported by Jim’s entertaining antics should ensure that this game becomes a fan favourite!”
As part of a new and exclusive supply deal with Golden Rock Studios, Microgaming have added the Volatile Slot to its portfolio of games and boy is it hot stuff. UK-based Golden Rock Studios is an upcoming software developer founded by gaming industry experts James Curwen (CEO) and Will Mathieson (CPO) and as part of the deal, their content will be distributed via the Microgaming award-winning platform.
The first slot to emerge from the studio is Volatile Slot – yes, that’s the name of the new slot and it’s an energetic 5 reel, 10 win line slot paying from left to right with two different game modes and a free spins feature as bonus. Without giving too much away there are two sets of wilds which can erupt onto the reels to award multipliers and free spins and then you transforming symbols, with wins being boosted by as much as 64x.
Jean-Luc Ferriere, Chief Commercial Officer at Microgaming said: “With more than 15 new games in the pipeline, Golden Rock Studios are set to broaden our range with fresh and diverse content. Volatile Slot is an impressive debut title and is now available across Microgaming’s entire customer base following a two-week period of exclusivity with Leo Vegas.”
James Curwen, CEO at Golden Rock Studios added: “We are proud to team up with Microgaming and look forward to providing them with many more exclusive games in the coming months. Our first release, Volatile Slot, delivers an exhilarating, high-volatility gameplay experience and is filled with stimulating game mechanics and vibrant visuals. This slot is by its very nature, volatile, and if the volcano erupts, the level of extremity is taken to a whole new level for the player, with the maximum win at a 25,600 times stake!”
