Pragmatic Play’s Pirate Gold Deluxe
Pragmatic Play has expanded its Deluxe range of slots with the release of Pirate Gold Deluxe.
The 4x5, 40-payline slot sees the return of Pragmatic Play’s fearsome crew of pirates as they scour the seas looking for booty.
Treasure bags on the reels act as Money Symbols, with eight or more landing on the reels triggering the Re-Spin Bonus. During the Bonus Feature, all previous Money Symbols will remain on the reels while respins occur to fill up the remaining spots. Players get three respins, with the count resetting in case of a successful spin.
“Pirate Gold Deluxe invites players back onto the high seas to join our hearty crew as they hunt for treasure,” said Pragmatic Play vice president Lena Yasir. “With a fun-filled hold and win style Bonus Round, any spin could turn into a lucrative win.
“We continue to add new and innovative games to our portfolio, as well as refining current classics. Our approach to game development continues to bear fruit and we’re eager to see how Pirate Gold Deluxe is received by our fans.”
Playtech’s The Rubik’s Cube
Playtech’s Ash studio has added a retro twist to this 3x5 25-line slot, with the 3D Rubik’s Cube turning symbols Wild, or into Multiplier Wilds of up to 7x if the cube is solved.
“We wanted to stay true to the iconic brand by incorporating a 3D Rubik’s Cube that twists on every spin,” said Ash games producer James Cook. “The Rubik’s Cube creates Wilds or Multiplier Wilds if symbols on the reels match the colours on the Cube.
“The Rubik’s Cube brand appeals to everyone, so we created six unlockable Free Games modes to allow players to choose a volatility that suits them. Multiplier Wilds stick to the reels in Free Games to create exciting combinations. We had a lot of fun making the game and we hope players enjoy this innovative slot with a retro twist.”
Playtech’s Mega Fire Blaze Roulette
Playtech’s Origins studio has released Mega Fire Blaze Roulette, where players can spin the wheel to win prizes in this new take on the classic game of roulette.
Up to 10 numbers can light up on any spin, and if the ball lands on a lit number with a straight bet placed on it, the Mega Fire Blaze feature is triggered. This spins the bonus table for cash prizes, win multipliers and stars that award one of four jackpots each time they appear.
“Mega Fire Blaze Roulette has to be the most exciting roulette variant we’ve ever produced,” said Origins game producer Yehonatan Tishler. “Players who enjoy Classic European Roulette will love the new twist the Mega Fire Blaze features bring - and of course the chance to win up to X10,000 their bet.
“During the Mega Fire Blaze round, player can win up to 36 prizes with a multiplier boost, plus up to six Jackpots.
