This week sees new slots released by Play’n GO, Everi Games, Microgaming, Yggdrasil, and Betsoft, as well as platform integrations for Reflex Gaming and 1X2 Network.
Swedish casino games developer Play’n GO has launched a new manga-themed slot, Moon Princess.
Immersing players in the magical world of Moon Princess, the supplier’s latest slot sees players search for fantastic riches by clearing the 5x5 grid slot with the assistance of the three regal beauties – Love, Star and Storm - and their unique super powers.
“Players will be over the moon when they enter the world of our latest slot Moon Princess, which features all the award-winning gameplay, graphics and sound you can expect from a Play’n GO game,” said CEO Johan Törnqvist. “We continue to develop premium games across all genres and for all types of player, and I am sure this latest addition will be a huge success for operators and their customers in the coming months.”
In the game, the charge metre fills as symbols are cleared, with the princesses showcasing their individual talents to knock symbols from the grid. When the metre fills completely, they will join together for the Princess Trinity feature. This sees the trio wield their special powers consecutively during a free spin after the winning game, helping the player find more winning combinations and clear the grid once more.
The girls will also work alone to help the player on non-winning drops, taking it in turns to show off their different Girl Powers, which can generate Wilds, destroy lines, or transform various symbols. Free spin rounds will be granted to lucky players throughout the game as they clear the grid, with the chance to win 100x their total bet if they wipe out the entire grid again. The Girl Power feature will also be activated during these rounds, where players choose from three bonus options from the trio of princesses.
Rush Street Interactive's iGaming brand SugarHouse Online Casino has become the first operator in New Jersey to launch Everi Games’ new slot game Royal Elephant.
Already popular in land-based casinos and the Sugarhouse4fun.com social casino, the new real-money online version of Royal Elephant takes players on a trip to India in a 5-reel, 40-line video slot that offers bonus features including Festival Multipliers.
Two more popular titles from Everi’s portfolio, Jackpot Inferno and Mata Hari, will also soon be available to PlaySugarHouse.com players this summer.
Jackpot Inferno is 5-reel, 50-line slot that offers players a chance to win a progressive jackpot through its Jackpot Jump, while Mata Hari is a 5-reel, 40-line video slot where up to 70 free spins are possible.
"These slot games are some of the most popular in land-based casinos in the US and internationally and PlaySugarhouse.com is excited to be the first to bring Royal Elephant to New Jersey's online market for real money wagering," said Rush Street Interactive’s chief operating officer Mattias Stetz.
"We want to continually offer our loyal players new and exciting entertainment, and these Everi games will keep players on the edge of their seats."
David Lucchese, Everi’s executive vice president, digital and interactive business leader, added: “Gaming entertainment continues to evolve and expand. We're delighted to join with Rush Street Interactive to be a part of that evolution by offering our fan favorite slots to online players who want to play the games they enjoy at anytime, while wagering real money on their mobile devices, desktop platforms, and multiple internet browsers."
Isle of Man-based gaming supplier Microgaming is bringing some southern charm to players this summer with its latest slot release Oink Country Love.
The five by three reel, 45-line online slot introduces players to the lovable Oink Bros, Willy and Chancho, who are trying to win over the heart of Miss Southern Charm.
A foot-tapping soundtrack sets the stage for a spectacular showdown. Treating players to Banjo and Violin medleys, Willy and Chancho appear on the reels as wilds that can act as both single and mixed paying symbols.
Landing three or more golden ticket scatters opens up the doors to the Barnyard Bash feature, which can award up to 80 free spins. During the feature, Willy and Chancho will appear more frequently to give players an unforgettable performance and a chance to retrigger an infinite amount of free spins to keep the party going all night.
“Oink Country Love is a visually rich slot that introduces two new characters who act as duelling wilds,” said David Reynolds, games publisher at Microgaming. “We expect this game to get players excited with a special feature that can retrigger an unlimited amount of free spins to unlock some big rewards.”
UK-based games developer Reflex Gaming has agreed a deal to roll out its games for operator BetVictor.
"Reflex entered the digital space with a fantastic reputation for creative game content earned in bricks and mortar gaming, but as relative online unknowns," said Reflex’s chief product officer Mat Ingram. "We took the lessons learned at ICE 2016, invested in our infrastructure, invested in the team, signed a RGS deal with Gameiom and have now secured two significant contracts with bluechip, highly respected organizations.
“Some of the games have been designed specifically for BetVictor and will be exclusive to them. All games in the portfolio have been fully localized to BetVictor's international requirements and are available on desktop, mobile and tablet."
Reflex expects to announce additional business wins with Tier 1 operators during the third quarter of this year.
Casino games developer Yggdrasil has released a new leprechaun-themed slot Rainbow Ryan.
The game features a pint-sized superstar who jams perfectly in tune with the reels. Its main feature is synced reels, which sees Ryan shred riffs at any time in the base game to sync up to six reels.
Even sweeter tunes await during Free Spins, where players will have at least two synced reels every spin, with the chance for more synced reels with each consecutive spin.
The supplier said that the game marks a different approach to traditional leprechaun themed slots, with a rock ‘n’ roll setting creating a perfect backdrop for Ryan’s solo riffs.
"Rainbow Ryan is a great game in many ways, but its most outstanding feature is the way the game's soundscape harmonises with the visuals,” said Yggdrasil’s head of slots Jonas Strandman. “Our miniature superstar Ryan reacts with rocking tunes to the reels, delivering players a sound experience that's previously unheard of in slots.
“It's a very catchy feature, and at the same time utilises technology that we are developing further for future games.”
3D slots developer Betsoft has announced the latest addition to its Slots3 portfolio with the launch of Fire & Steel.
The uniquely crafted 3-4-5-4-3 diamond format video slot highlights the epic battle of good versus evil, and appears to be loosely based on the popular Game of Thrones medieval fantasy TV epic.
Betsoft’s game centres on two rival noble Houses who have been fighting since the ancient High Queen was assassinated. Though she had two children, neither one was formally named as heir.
The first Shieldmaiden and her House gathered in the dry, mountainous western region of the country. During gameplay, if the Shieldmaiden appears on the reels, her powerful War Cry causes a horizontal Beam of Strength to emanate from her icon, transforming every icon it touches into a Wild icon.
The first Swordsman took the House that was sworn to him and settled in the stormy, swampy northern region. When the Swordsman appears on the reels, his booming War Cry creates a vertical Beam of Magical Strength, springing from his icon and turning every icon it touches into a Wild icon.
If both the Shieldmaiden and the Swordsman appear on the reels together, and if their Beams of Strength intersect at any point, a storm of magic will transform that icon into a Locked Wild and the player will be honoured with 10 free spins. Free spins may retrigger on the field of battle during this feature.
UK-based games developer and platform provider 1X2 Network (formerly 1X2gaming) has agreed a new content distribution deal with platform provider BetConstruct.
BetConstruct will now offer customers a variety of omni-channel sports games, table games and slots from 1X2 Network, deployed fully in HTML5 for desktop, tablet, mobile and retail.
“We are extremely excited to be working with a company of the stature of BetConstruct,” said Kevin Reid, commercial director of 1X2 Network. “Partnering with such reputable companies and industry leaders as BetConstruct underlines the market's appetite for our wide variety of games including our new high production Iron Dog Studio content, alongside the strong and well balanced content from 1X2gaming.”
BetConstruct’s chief operating officer Sergey Harutyunyan added: "We are pleased to offer the unique gaming products of 1X2 Network to our growing casino engine.
“With the new concepts and technologies, 1X2gaming and Iron Dog Studio portfolios will be very popular among our diverse range of clients."
