This week has seen new games released by Microgaming, Pragmatic Play, Nolimit City, Booming Games and Playson, with platform integrations for the likes of Blueprint Gaming, Habanero, WeAreCasino, Espresso Games, Skillzzgaming and Patagonia Entertainment.
Microgaming’s Le Kaffee Bar
Microgaming has released Le Kaffee Bar, the first online slot to be developed exclusively for the supplier by All41 Studios.
The five-reel slot blends 243 ways to win with coffee bean wild symbols and free spins, along with two flavoursome ingredients in the Spin Again and Scatter Collection features.
Set against the elegant backdrop of a Parisian café, the game introduces players to fellow coffee-drinkers and a friendly barista, serving up all the action on a chalkboard of reels. The game’s chalk-drawn symbols include creamy cupcakes, steaming coffee cups and perfect percolators.
Each time a scatter symbol lands on the board’s first and fifth reel, a coffee cup is collected in the cup meter below. Players can choose to cash in ten cups for ten free spins with a 3x multiplier, or carry on collecting for a chance to claim up to 18 free spins with a 5x multiplier.
In both the base game and free spins, players have the chance to upgrade their orders with the Spin Again feature, which delivers a re-spin when any three identical symbols line up horizontally or vertically on the reels. During the re-spin, the centre symbol of the three symbols turns wild.
“We’re excited to invite new and experienced players to embrace the hipster culture in this first exclusive creation from All41 Studios,” said Microgaming head of games Jagoda Barber. “A refreshing addition to Microgaming’s diverse portfolio, Le Kaffee Bar includes the Scatter Collection feature and Spin Again features, complemented by delightful artwork and animations.”
All41 Studios head Julia Saburova added: “We’re looking forward to welcoming players to the charming Le Kaffee Bar, where they’ll experience the essence of coffee culture in the form of this stylish slot game. Mixing enticing features with an engaging theme, this first release under our studio brand is designed to delight and thrill.”
Pragmatic Play’s Triple Jokers
Pragmatic Play has released the latest addition to its slot portfolio with the launch of Triple Jokers.
The 3x3, 5-payline slot features classic symbols across the reels, while the Joker symbol acts as a Wild during Respins. Three stacked Jokers on the reels start the Respins feature, which continues until players win.
“Triple Jokers is a fun-filled addition to the Pragmatic Play portfolio,” said Pragmatic Play chief commercial officer Melissa Summerfield. “With its simple and engaging gameplay, and a Respin round which guarantees a win, it is sure to be a hit with our fans across regulated markets around the globe.”
Nolimit City’s Mayan Magic Wildfire
Nolimit City is taking players into the Amazon jungle with its latest slot Mayan Magic Wildfire.
The 5x3 reel, 10 fixed lines game is set in a mystical lost rain forest in the depths of the Amazon jungle. Every locked-in wild on screen will give extra Respins and increase a win multiplier.
“We’ve worked hard to create a game with a simple feature, something we can award to be triggered often, but that also can keep the action going for a long, long time with amazing wins,” said Nolimit City product owner Per Lindheimer. “Mayan Magic Wildfire has a lush and beautiful slot theme that fits its mid volatility perfectly – this game is fun if you play 15 rounds or 1500 rounds.”
Booming Games’ Gold Vein
The latest slot from Booming Games takes players back to California’s gold rush era of the mid-1800s.
Gold Vein is a medium volatility release, featuring locking wilds in Free Spins, a bonus reel with multiplier wilds, extra Free Spins and a Double Gold Nugget symbol which allows players to win a six of a kind payout on the game’s highest paying symbol.
“Gold Vein is a 5x3 old-timey Gold Mining slot, with an innovative random bonus reel where tram carts are lowered into the bonus pit to see what bounty they can unearth,” said Booming Games director of product Shane Cotter. “Take a minecart trip into the innermost recesses of the mine to discover the Free Spins reels.”
Blueprint Gaming / iGaming Platform
Blueprint Gaming has signed a content distribution agreement with Malta-based platform provider iGaming Platform.
The deal sees Blueprint titles including Fishin’ Frenzy, King Kong Cash and Wish Upon A Jackpot, as well as its range of Megaways titles under license from Big Time Gaming, integrated onto iGaming Platform’s GameHub.

Playson’s Wild Burning Wins: 5 Lines
Playson has expanded its slot portfolio with the launch of Wild Burning Wins: 5 Lines.
The game features three reels, five-win lines and a Wild symbol, with re-spins which can fix the current combination and double the chances of a win.
A Bonus Wheel adds to the playability, bringing different multipliers to round-up winnings and giving players a Mega Win.
“We specialise in bringing the heat when it comes to new slots in the industry and Wild Burning Wins: 5 Lines is no exception,” said Playson head of product Vsevolod Lapin. “With plenty to entertain both newcomers and die-hard players, we’re confident it will be a hit for our casino partners in multiple territories.”
