There were a raft of new game releases this week including a new branded slot from Microgaming, an exclusive game for Unibet by Genesis Gaming, as well as other titles from 1X2gaming and World Match.
Microgaming has launched a new online slot based on classic TV game show Bullseye hosted by Jim Bowen, which involved three pairs of contestants competing against one another to win prizes. Bully, the darts playing bull was the show’s mascot, making appearances throughout the programme.
The popular game show is presented in a 5x3 reel, 243 ways to win online slot, with reels based on the programme’s notorious star prizes, including a speedboat, caravan and car.
Bully’s special bonus round is triggered by the prize board symbol on reels one and five. The bonus round lets the player step up to the oche for some real darts action. Players throw darts at the board for the chance to win cash prizes depicted by such vintage items as a VCR or carriage clock, worth up to 15x the total bet for each dart thrown.
In addition, three or more scatter symbols on the reels takes players to the retriggerable free spins bonus. 15 free spins are presented, during which all wins are doubled, and additional scatter pays between 5x and a ton (100x) can be awarded.
The game features retro graphics and apt sound effects, including the voices of Jim Bowen and co-host Tony Green.
“This game revisits one of the most-loved television shows of the era,” said Mike Hebden, head of casino games at Microgaming. “The online slot embraces all the show features that made the programme so popular, including the classic one-liners, prize board, and Bully’s star prizes.
“Available to operators today, we expect the game to excite fans new and old, and with darts season on the horizon, it is the perfect time to unleash our Bullseye slot.”
Genesis Gaming has unveiled a new video slot which is available exclusively at Unibet. Temple Of Luxor has two 50-line reel sets that combine to form a massive 11-reels featuring 4 Wild Reels for the bonus.
The supplier said that the game is unique in its base game play, with two 4x5 reel sets, for a combined 100 lines of action. Wins are evaluated from left to right on one side and from right to left on the other set. Large symbol stacks keep the potential for large wins in sight.
The bonus is triggered by two scatters on each reel set. With a flash of light, the center dividing obelisk becomes a giant wild symbol, combining the two sets of reels into 11 reels with 50 lines that pay both ways. Additionally, the center wild reel will replicate to add three extra wild reels for a total of four full wild reels every bonus spin. The free game series can be retriggered.
“Temple of Luxor gives players a new gaming experience, offering multiple reel sets and then a massive reel set in the bonus.,” said Geoffrey Hansen, managing director of Genesis Gaming.
James Watson, director of European sales for Genesis Gaming, added: “Players are increasingly looking for both frequent wins and large wins, which can be difficult to find in a slot game. Temple of Luxor’s huge stacks of symbols and high line count allow for both, making this a real treat for players.”
