This week has seen new games released by SG Digital, Realistic Games, NetEnt, Play’n GO, Pragmatic Play, Yggdrasil and Betsoft, alongside integrations for the likes of Habanero, Wazdan, and Nolimit City.
SG Digital, the B2B iGaming division of Scientific Games, has launched two new slot games this week - Very Fruity from its Shuffle Master studio and Celestial King from its Bally studio.
Very Fruity is a classic fruit game with a twist, designed with seasoned slot players in mind. With high volatility and iconic fruit symbols, Very Fruity takes advantage of a timeless and simple aesthetic to create an unforgettable gaming experience.
Celestial King takes a Lock It Link style bonus and puts a lighter spin on it, which the supplier said makes it an excellent fit for casual and avid players alike. Even with a softer theme, Celestial King makes an impact, offering up to three simultaneous jackpots.
“We created Very Fruity specifically for advanced players; the opportunity for big wins is wrapped nicely in a package that experienced players will recognize and enjoy,” said Tom Wood, chief creative officer at SG Digital. “Celestial King is more playful with lighter colors, softer play and an entertaining character. It’s accessible for all players—however, with free games, a Lock It Link style bonus, and a four level jackpot, it still packs a serious punch.”
Reading-based casino content supplier Realistic Games has launched an updated version of one of its most popular games, Tutankhamun Deluxe.
The upgraded Egyptian-themed game is a five-reel, 20-line slot which has been re-purposed in HTML5 as the company continues to phase out its flash portfolio of titles.
Tutankhamun Deluxe is now a full-page game featuring enhanced graphics and sounds as well as an intuitive user interface. Players travel through ancient Egypt to unlock the mysteries of the pyramids, which include free spins with a multiplier of x3 on all wins, as well as the chance of unlimited re-triggers and increased multipliers of the wild pharaohs.
“Tutankhamun has always been one of our top performing games,” explained Robert Lee, commercial director of Realistic Games. “In Tutankhamun Deluxe we are bringing back the original game in a more improved and modern version.
“We did the same with 6 Appeal in December and that was well-received by our customers, so we are confident that Tutankhamun Deluxe will be equally popular.”
Stockholm-listed casino supplier NetEnt has unveiled its latest slot game, Archangels: Salvation, the first game in the company's history to include 100-bet lines.
The 6-reel, 12-row video slot sees players join the everlasting battle between Good and Evil in the fantasy world. As the clash unfolds, the Free Spins feature becomes more intense, with the game also offering two separate hot spot areas, with any Wild symbol landing in those areas activating Wild features.
“Archangels: Salvation sees us reach another milestone in our history with the debut of the 100-bet line and that’s credit to the team for being able to create such high-quality games with innovative game design,” said Henrik Fagerlund, chief product officer of NetEnt.
“We hope that players and operators alike enjoy the extra features we’ve included and look forward to seeing how the game performs.”
Malta-based slot developer Pragmatic Play has added to its portfolio of video slots with the launch of Fire 88.
Against a backdrop of flames, the 3x3 reels of Fire 88 contain timeless symbols such as dragons, diamonds and coins, as well as two varieties of the number 88 – one of the luckiest pairings in Chinese numerology.
Presented with nine coins, all face down, players then turn over three coins with the aim of finding a matching set of minor, major, or grand coins. This will award the corresponding tier from the fixed jackpots prominently displayed at the top of the screen.
“Fire 88 is a thrilling and engaging product, and is a worthy addition to our growing portfolio of top-performing titles,” said Pragmatic Play chief commercial officer Melissa Summerfield. “This adds to our recent launch of Fairytale Fortune as we continue to deliver an innovative suite of content to our partners in markets around the world.”
In related news, Pragmatic’s games have this week gone live with Stockholm-listed operator Mr Green.
Titles including Wolf Gold, Diamond Strike, Gold Rush, and Hot Safari are now available to Mr Green’s casino players.
“We are delighted to take our growing portfolio of casino games live with Mr Green, an operator that shares our passion for bringing players an online casino experience dedicated to quality and innovation,” said Summerfield. “Every spin of the reels in a Pragmatic Play game offers fun, excitement and innovation, and we are certain our games will prove hugely popular with Mr Green’s customers.”
Swedish slots specialist Play’n GO is taking players to ancient Egypt with its latest release, Legacy of Egypt.
The five-reel, 30-line slot explores the land of the Pharaohs, where powerful gods and wealthy leaders compete on the reels as explorers take aim at free spins and giant jackpots.
The game includes a wild symbol (Scarab) and free-spin scatter symbol (Pyramid), which help create winning combinations and unlock the prize puzzle. When three or more scatter symbols appear anywhere they trigger the Wheel of the Gods, a spinning wheel that can reward players with up to 20 free spins.
“Legacy of Egypt takes players back in time and if they can navigate their way around the beasts that guard the sacred tombs there are plenty of prizes to be uncovered,” said Johan Törnqvist, chief executive of Play’n GO. “This latest release is another exciting addition to our lineup and we can’t wait to see what players make of it. We’re sure they’ll be really engaged by the fantastic graphics and immersive soundscape in which the game is set.”
Casino games developer Yggdrasil Gaming is getting ready to step into the ring with its new slot Lucha Maniacs.
The game invites players to join the loco luchadores wrestlers as they fight for a place in the big time. The game’s main attraction is the retriggering Free Spins round, where features ranging from multipliers and added wilds to stacked reels and merging symbols can mix and match to create gigantic feature combos.
Players can pay extra with the Golden Bet to access ringside seats to the show and get an additional feature pick in the Free Spins round. Achieving one scatter short of Free Spins in the base game triggers a pick'n'click game, where players can score coin wins or additional scatters to grant tickets to the Free Spins.
“We had a fantastic time showcasing Lucha Maniacs during one of Yggdrasil’s famous slot shot tournaments at ICE, and now is the time to launch the game for real,” said Yggdrasil Gaming's head of slots Jonas Strandman. “Lucha Maniacs is jam-packed full of fun and we are sure this extravaganza of action-oriented features will soon get it a cult following.”
Malta-based slots developer Betsoft Gaming has released its latest title, Reels of Wealth.
The multi-layered 5x3 slot game takes the supplier’s proprietary Trail System to the next level, providing a sense of progression as players hop into a hoard of different bonus features and begin collecting symbols.
Gemstones, gold bullion, piles of paper currency, heaving sacks of valuables, and gleaming chests full of gold are all basic symbols, while there are a host of rewarding gameplay innovations, including five additional mechanics and a fully-featured mini-game.
“Our goal with Reels of Wealth was to create an immediately captivating game that also had considerable depth,” said Dan Cooper, head of product development at Betsoft. “With re-spins, rolling wins, and a common symbol set, the base game is seriously inviting, with the potential for significant wins.
“But the MEGASTAR mode - essentially a game-within-a-game – opens up even more opportunities, with four different jackpots, and a totally unique player journey powered by our in-house Trail System.”
Slots and table games provider Habanero has agreed a deal with Asian-facing sportsbook provider RWB Solutions International, making Habanero’s full collection of titles available to a number of the region’s leading brands.
This will include the supplier’s latest releases Presto!, London Hunter, and Four Divine Beasts.
“We are really pleased to have agreed a deal with RWB, who possess a fantastic client base, and we are confident they will benefit from the popular games we produce,” said Daniel Long, head of sales at Habanero. “This is another exciting step in our journey and it shows the tremendous growth we are experiencing as a company on the back of producing the high-quality content.”
