As a number of new igaming titles grace the CasinoBeats inbox, sit back and get to grips with a select few new slot games in one handy bite-size chunk.
Yggdrasil – WildPops
Online gaming solutions provider Yggdrasil has debuted its latest title, with WildPops delivered in partnership with AvatarUX, a partner studio of the YG Masters programme
The ‘pays both ways’ slot utilises AvatarUX’s PopWins mechanic, where winning symbols ‘pop’ and are replaced with two new symbols, something that can continue to expand for every cascading win on a single spin, offering great win potential.
A multiplier is added for every seventh pop, meaning one spin can turn into big wins if the pdon’t stop and the reel grid continues to grow.
If three wins occur in a row, two random wilds are triggered, something that is repeated for every three consecutive wins, leading to even more pops. If the reels expand to seven columns high, the bonus round is triggered, and three extra lives are awarded to players.
“Our latest PopWins game contains all the thrilling excitement of our feature mechanic with a fun theme and massive win potential. Any spin can get the Popping started and give players thrilling experiences.
“Our partnership with Yggdrasil continues to go from strength to strength and we look forward to it growing for many years.” – Marcus Honney, managing director at AvatarUX.
High 5 Games – Teatime Treasures
Take a trip down the rabbit hole, as high 5 Games revives its ‘Wild Train’ feature in their Wonderland themed slot game Teatime Treasures.
Wild Train is activated when the caterpillar and slice of cake symbol appear on the board at the same time. The caterpillar will munch his way through the reels, proceeding to eat the cake.
Every slice of cake accumulated during the base game is added to the win meter that is displayed on the left-hand side of the screen, featuring the Cheshire Cat.
If a player collects enough cake in consecutive spins to raise the meter, they will work their way up to unlock the free games bonus and the jackpot bonus.
“We are excited to see the wild train feature make its return to online casinos worldwide in such a nostalgic way. Teatime Treasures will sure bring the fun adventurous ride of wonder through a classic tale we all know and love.
“With the entertaining feature and colourful game art, we are eager to get this game released with the in-game promotions available to our operators worldwide,” – Lauren Gazneli, senior manager of client partner at High 5 Games.
Lightning Box – Spartan Fire
Prepare for battle in a 4×5 reel slot features 40 paylines, as players fight for big wins in Lightning Box’s latest introduction Spartan Fire.
With the wild eyes symbol acting as a wild, the Spartan Spin feature also turns the man and woman icons into wilds for even bigger wins.
If three or more Spartan Shields land on the reels, the Spartan Fire bonus is triggered, giving players a chance to choose their shields to lead them to glory.
Each shield reveals a different icon, with multipliers, wilds and extra free game(s) to be unlocked. Players can win up to nine free games with a 30x multiplier.
“Spartans are famed for battling to great victories and players will experience all the thrills of war in our newest hit, Spartan Fire.
“Its action-packed Bonus Round will see players select their shields for combat, before leading to big wins when the dust settles.” – Peter Causley, CEO and co-founder of Lightning Box.
Playson – Pearl Beauty: Hold and Win
Take a voyage to the Far East in Playson’s 243 ways to win Pearl Beauty: Hold and Win, with players transported to a place of mysticism as they join two adventurous characters on a quest for wins and bonus features.
The title features a bonus game which is triggered by six or more bonus pearl symbols. The special Golden Pearl symbol collects the values of the other pearls and immediately adds it to the total win.
