This week’s game releases includes two new games from Swedish casino games developer Net Entertainment, seven from Sheriff Gaming and two mobile games from 3D slots developer BetSoftGaming.
Sweden’s Net Entertainment released two new games this week, its latest video slot Secret of the Stones and a new mobile game Magic Portals.
Stonehenge provides the backdrop for Secret of the Stones, where players are challenged to unlock the mysteries of a stone garden. The ancient setting is populated by druids roaming the hills of Western Europe and features 5-reels, 3-rows, Wild substitutions and Free Spins.
An interactive Free Spins bonus collection allows players to pick up certain types of bonus features from a lush green garden. The caretaker and his staff pass on their congratulations as each bonus feature is unearthed.
Once they have all been revealed, rays of sunlight illuminate the garden before Free Spins commence.
“Secret of the Stones offers the highest quality gaming experience and a perfect balance between easy gameplay and excitement on the reels,” said Net Entertainment’s chief product officer Simon Hammon. “Our mission is always to create better games for players and this video slot is a gem that delivers a superb gaming experience.”
Meanwhile the company has bolstered its Touch mobile games portfolio with Magic Portals, where players are taken on a mystical journey to a land where wizards, warlocks and magic are all in abundance.
All the reels action is set against an enchanting backdrop of fire, ice and lightning. They each combine to change symbols into Wilds and in turn lead players to a location where the spins are free and even more magic exists.
The game is a 5-reel, 3-row, 25-bet line video slot featuring Free Spins, Wild Substitutions and two Magic Portals. 10 free spins are rewarded if the matching symbols in the portals are Free Spins symbols.
In the game, magic transforms symbols into Wilds or takes a player to Free Spins which can occur on every single spin. In the main game, if two of the same symbols appear in the portals, magic turns all instances of that symbol on the reels Wild.
“Magic Portals can now be enjoyed by players on mobile while they make their own exciting journeys,” added Hammon. “We are constantly adding to our Touch portfolio to maintain our promise of developing better games.”
Sheriff Gaming has rolled out seven new games, including two new mobile games and a new series of Blackjack side bet games.
The company’s newest slot game release is Random2Wins, the latest addition to Sheriff’s new line of classic slot games. The game features two side-by-side machines that are filled with retro symbols. Players can bet anywhere between 1 and 100 credits on 5 to 10 lines while playing one game, switching between the two games or playing both games at the same time.
This retro double slot game also features Double Symbols and Simultaneous Spinning action.
Sheriff Gaming’s spokesperson Jason O’Shea said: “Although we are best known for our cutting-edge 3D animated video slot games, we have recently launched a new line of Classic Slots games and Random2Wins is a perfect addition to our classic slots portfolio.”
In Sheriff Gaming latest 3D animated slot game Underwater World, players can reel in the fun with 10 lines and 5 reels of non-stop action. The deep-sea adventure themed 3D animated slot sees colourful sea creatures and innovative bonus features fill the reels.
Special features include Stacked Wild symbols, Free Spins and special Multiplier Reels that award a multiplier for every symbol in every winning combination.
O’Shea said: “Underwater World is our first 3D animated slot game to feature the Multiplier Reels feature, which we’re sure players will love. Some of our games feature a random Multiplier or a Multiplier Reel that award one multiplier on every spin. The debut of the Multiplier Reels feature in Underwater World takes that bonus concept a step further though.
“In this game, there are 5 different multiplier reels (one bonus multiplier reel on every regular reel) that spin along with the 5 regular reels and award a multiplier to every regular reel. That means that every symbol in a winning combination is awarded a different multiplier on every spin.”
Two new mobile games have also been unveiled by the company, Extreme and Roulette.
Extreme was released as a web-based game earlier this year, with the new mobile version offering players a 5-reel, 20-line 3D animated slot set in deep space and featuring the debut of several new and innovative features in Sheriff Gaming’s slot game portfolio.
There is a new “extreme” version of a Wild symbol in the form of a Dropping Wild Cube, which also awards players with free spins, as well as a new Extreme Multiplier Cube that awards generous multipliers for every winning combination in a spin.
Roulette, one of Sheriff Gaming’s most popular 3D animated table games, is the first table game to be released under the company’s SMART mobile gaming line.
The new European Roulette game boasts an easy-to-use mobile interface and a wide variety of features including flexible betting options, cutting-edge graphics, responsive game play, a pan view for the spinning roulette wheel action, a quick spin option, and hot & cold numbers.
“We’re very excited to start rolling out Sheriff Gaming’s table games in our SMART mobile platform,” continued O’Shea. “Releasing a mobile version of Roulette, one of our most popular table games, was the next logical step following the amazing response we’ve received after releasing some of our top 3D animated slot games in our state-of-the-art mobile format.”
Finally, Sheriff Gaming has rolled out a new series of Blackjack side bet games, including Lucky Pairs Blackjack, Lucky Poker Blackjack, and Lucky 7’s Blackjack.
In Lucky Pairs Blackjack, in addition to placing a standard blackjack bet, players can place a Lucky Pairs side bet. The goal of the Lucky Pairs side bet is for the player to get a pair of matching cards (of equal value) with the first two cards dealt to the player’s hand. Pair combinations can be a mixed pair (different colour), coloured pair (same colour, different suit) or suited pair (same suit). A winning pair combination can pay up to 25:1 for a Suited Pair.
O’Shea said: “The release of these side bet games is part of our commitment to offer a larger an even more diverse selection of top quality table games to our operators and players.”
In Lucky Poker Blackjack, players can play up to three blackjack hands at the same time with three Lucky Poker three side bets for maximum action.
The goal of the Lucky Poker side bet is to get a winning Three Card Poker hand made up of the player’s first two face up cards and the dealer’s first face up card. There are four different Three Card Poker combinations possible in Lucky Poker Blackjack that all offer a 9:1 payout.
In Sheriff Gaming’s version of Lucky 7’s Blackjack, players can play up to three different blackjack hands at the same time with three different Lucky 7’s side bets for maximum action and engagement.
A Lucky 7’s side bet is a bet on the outcome of the player’s first two face up cards and the dealer’s first face up card. There are eight different Lucky 7’s combinations, each offering a different payout, ranging from 1:1 up to 500:1 on a Suited 777 combo.
BetSoftGaming has released two new titles in its ToGo mobile game line, The True Sheriff ToGo and True Illusions ToGo.
The games are mobile versions of the company’s original Slots3 games, and features high quality graphics on iOS and Android platforms.
The True Sheriff ToGo game has a Wild American West theme, featuring an ultimate showdown between the stalwart sheriff and his outlaw nemesis. Both games contain all of the bonus features and elements found in the Slots3 version.
“The audience for our ToGo collection of mobile games is rapidly growing," said Anthony Locke, BetSoft's head of product development. “As this niche market expands, more and more people are choosing the convenience of gaming on the go, and players can be confident that as their desire for mobile games grows, so will our library of available ToGo titles.
“We are consistently bringing classic Slots3 favourites to the mobile marketplace, while developing the new content that will define the future of iGaming.”
High 5 Games
New Jersey-based slots developer High 5 Games has launched three new games on its social gaming platform, High 5 Casino.
The aquatic-themed Ocean's Glory features H5G's newest feature, Super Symbols. These extra-large symbols can appear in addition to traditionally sized symbols and count as if each space they cover is occupied by that symbol, making it easier for players to achieve large wins on multiple lines at once.
Bear Mountain, a 3 x 5 reel game, features Super Stacks and includes the Mountain Multiplier which can multiply a player's entire winning in the bonus round.
As the 60th game added to H5C, Cat Prince enjoyed a special release to users of the social app. For all those on level 60 and higher, the game was unlocked for instant access. This 3 x 5 reel slot game also includes special features such as Super Stacks with Multipliers.
