This week sees the release of new online slot games from Habanero, Realistic Games, Pragmatic Play, and Felix Gaming, and integrations for the likes of IWG, Yggdrasil, CORE Gaming, Tom Horn Gaming, and Zeus Play.
Online instant win games provider IWG will deliver its complete product portfolio to platform provider Pariplay.
IWG's instant win titles will be distributed through Pariplay's FUSION content aggregator network, with games such as Cash Buster and Slingo now be available to Pariplay partners including GVC Holdings, Jumpman Gaming and the 888 Bingo network.
"The popularity of instant win games continues to go from strength to strength, with operators taking a keen interest in the vertical," said Rhydian Fisher, CEO at IWG. "This latest agreement opens up the opportunity for more firms than ever before to take up our games.
"It's been a pleasure working alongside such an agile and nimble technology provider as Pariplay. We've been impressed by the ease and speed of integration into its FUSION RGS."
Adrian Bailey, general manager at Pariplay, added: "As the number one provider to private lotteries, and supporting our strategic objective of leading the aggregator segment, IWG's content is the perfect fit for our portfolio.
"We're sure IWG’s highly-engaging games, which includes a range of exclusives for us at Pariplay, will prove to be an instant hit for our players."
UK-based casino content supplier Realistic Games has released Win Sprint, a modern 3D take on a classic fruit-based game.
The game is a three-reel, five-win line slot, featuring an innovative bonus feature which grants players the chance of big wins when they trigger a 'W+I+N' combination on any of the win lines.
The bonus round will randomly offer between one and five winning lines of any of the well-known fruit symbols, which are then multiplied and added to the running total until no more 'win spins' remain.
"Win Sprint is our latest slot featuring first-to-market innovations and we're sure our players will be quick to love the new feature," said Andy Harris, CEO of Realistic Games. "The 'win sprint' bonus is both easy to understand and potentially very profitable for players. It will complement the much-loved fruit slot perfectly."
Slots and table games provider Habanero has launched a baking-themed slot Cake Valley.
The 243-ways game serves up three different 'Jelly Selector' game modes that each provide a unique gameplay experience.
The red mode unlocks four continually moving spots which offer eight free spins as a feature when easily filled with four matching symbols.
The yellow mode features the same pattern, but with three moving symbols required to be matched, unlocking 12 free spins, while the green jelly bean mode delivers 15 free spins if two symbols match in the moving spots.
"Cake Valley's 'Jelly Selector' gives players the chance to choose their mode based on their preferences," said Toni Karapetrov, head of corporate communications at Habanero. "This unique control, as well as great graphics and sound effects, means Cake Valley is set to be one of Habanero's most innovative to date and we are sure it will prove to be very popular."
Malta-based games provider Pragmatic Play is taking players to a land of sorcery with Wild Spells, the latest addition to its portfolio of slots.
The 3x5, 25-line game features a black cat wild, crystal ball scatter symbol and three witches harnessing the powers of nature, fire and ice, delivering a story-driven experience with bewitching gameplay.
"We are delighted to announce the launch of Wild Spells, an enchanting addition our collection of industry-leading titles," said Yossi Barzely, head of business development at Pragmatic Play. "We specialise in providing players with excellent gameplay and immersive experiences, and Wild Spells continues this tradition with a dazzling theme and range of exciting bonus features."
The game's rich feature set includes an innovative free spins offer that allows players to select their favourite members of the game's cast, determining the number of free spins they receive.
Slots developer Felix Gaming has announced its latest release Dark Mystic, which includes a new bonus feature giving players even greater control over their wins.
Dark Mystic is a 5x3-reel, 10-payline slot that has been developed in HTML5 with a mythical theme, featuring reel symbols including treasure chests, swords and beautiful sorceresses.
The game's unique selling point is a complex bonus engine that allows players to select the position of an expanding wild, altering the outcome of the spin and giving them more chances to win.
The Drag Win feature is triggered by a dragon symbol randomly appearing on the reels during the game. It acts as an expanding wild, and the player has two seconds to decide where to place it. If they don't, it is placed automatically.
"Dark Mystic is a beautiful game with rich graphics and an authentic soundtrack," said Bilyan Balinov, CEO at Felix Gaming. "The Drag Wins feature is something special, and is the result a lot of hard work under the hood and on the math and mechanics of the slot.
"It is and industry-first bonus feature, giving players greater control over their wins. This, in turn, helps to ramp up anticipation and excitement, driving engagement levels higher than any other game feature on the market."
