Betsoft Gaming’s Caishen’s Arrival
Betsoft Gaming invites players to delve into a world of riches with Caishen’s Arrival. Complete with trademark, cinematic Betsoft graphics and gameplay, this release is jam-packed with creative features ranging from money trees to golden artefacts and the majestic Caishen himself.

The slot features a multiplier of over 35000x, and 10 free spins with a 3x multiplier on all wins, offering big win potential. Caishen, the Chinese God of Wealth, takes centre stage and features as a wild symbol.
Stacking three portraits of the oriental deity on a reel earns players a full reel wild and a free re-spin. Players can delve even deeper into Caishen’s world of riches by seeking out the coin purse scatter. Rewards are triggered when three or more of these symbols appear anywhere on the reels.
“Caishen’s Arrival is a brilliant addition to our online offering and Red Dragon series,” said Betsoft Gaming marketing director Annamaria Anastasi. “With a sky-high multiplier and plenty of pay-lines, players venture into a land of riches beyond expectation.”
Wanabet’s Magic Jewels
Wanabet, the Spainish online betting and gaming platform of the R. Franco Group, has launched Magic Jewels, its latest online slot.
Developed by R. Franco Digital, the slot is available in English and Spanish and features a 5x3 grid with 243 winning paylines incorporating scatters, wild symbols and free spins. With a magical forest at the heart of the game, players must search far and wide for crystals and diamonds in order to combine them for the big win.
The games is initially available on Wanabet on an exclusive basis before wider rollout to R. Franco Digital customers.
Jam-packed with features, this medium volatility ‘fruit machine’ boasts five reels and 20 paylines, instead of the traditional 3 reels and one to five lines.
Players landing a single game logo icon trigger a free respin, with reels two to four turning into a single reel of colossal 3x3 symbols. Each respin also activates a new jack in the box symbol for that spin. This symbol can land on reels one and five, and springs open to become a Jester Wild Reel.
If players land a golden strawberry anywhere on the reels, it bursts into up to five overlay wilds and landing a colossal golden strawberry turns the entire game-board into the highest paying symbol, awarding the player a whopping five thousand times their bet.
“Booming Games’ latest and greatest ‘Colossal Fruit Smash’ is best described as an old school fruit machine with a modern twist,” said Booming Games director of product Shane Cotter. “We were hugely excited during the production of this game because we knew how much fun it was going to be for our players.
“The game-maths is compelling, with just the right frequency of free respins, activating the colossal fruits and colossal wilds on reels 2 to 4, and the Wild 3x1 Jester in the box on reels 1 and 5. As a player you can
immediately see the potential for massive wins”.
Microgaming’s Deco Diamonds Deluxe
Microgaming’s art-deco themed slot returns in Deco Diamonds Deluxe, the latest exclusive online slot developed for Microgaming by Just For The Win.
Echoing the Roaring Twenties era, Deco Diamonds Deluxe is a five-reel, nine-payline, high-volatility online slot gleaming with diamond-encrusted reels, glitzy symbols and a swinging soundtrack.
The Deco Diamonds Deluxe wild symbol can trigger both respins and the Bonus Wheel feature, offering a variety of routes to rich rewards. Landing two, three or four Deco Diamond Deluxe symbols awards one respin, locking the wild symbols in place and spinning the remaining reels, creating the potential for further respins.
Enabling the Just For The Boost feature increases the player’s bet by 50 per cent and simultaneously triggers the Deco Diamonds Deluxe Symbol Nudge. If a Deco Diamonds Deluxe symbol lands just outside of the 5x3 reel area, the Symbol Nudge feature will cause that reel to shift one position, so that this symbol ends up on the 5x3 reel area. This unlocks potentially big wins with the symbol being wild and increases the chances to spin the coveted Bonus Wheel.
The three-tiered Bonus Wheel is triggered by landing three, four or five Deco Diamond Deluxe symbols, granting exclusive access to the Silver, Gold or Diamond levels of the Bonus Wheel. Each level of the wheel has increasing wins with level-up tiles on the Silver and Gold tiers unlocking Diamond-level win potential of up to 1,000x the initial bet.
“Building on the popularity of the original Deco Diamonds game released in January last year, Just For The Win have successfully built a captivating sequel,” said Microgaming director of global operations James Buchanan. “The Just For The Boost with Deco Diamonds Deluxe Symbol Nudge is a perfect addition to this title, allowing for the opportunity to turn near-misses into fantastic wins and triggering a spin on the coveted Bonus Wheel.”
Just For The Win CEO Johan Persson added: “Deco Diamonds Deluxe is a glamorous, art-deco inspired slot with all the charm and excitement of the Jazz Age. Glistening diamonds, fruits and a full cast of glittering symbols zoom across the reels in this fast-paced title complemented by a superb soundtrack. Deco Diamonds Deluxe pairs new mechanics with enhanced original features to create a truly spectacular game with the potential for significant rewards.”
