The Isle of Man based casino game studio and casino software developer Microgaming have announced their new game release schedule for April 2021, and with it comes a number of games produced and developed by several independent game studios exclusively for Microgaming .
Microgaming continues to build relationships with some of the most exciting and original new studios in the iGaming space. It is these relationships that in turn help keep their platform fresh, with diverse, innovative and relevant content.
8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger™ Megaways™ is released on 22nd April. Developed and produced by Buck Stakes Entertainment, the latest newcomer to Microgaming’s network of exclusive independent studios. This glamorous pirate-themed slot is tipped for great things, not least because it’s brimming with features.
Players can win up to 1,900x their stake thanks to the Firepot™ jackpot scatter feature. There’s a mystery symbol feature, plus Rolling Reels™ and a free spins and multiplier bonus wheel. And it’s all topped off with the acclaimed Megaways™ mechanic, randomly producing between 64 to 117,649 ways to win with every spin.
Queen of Alexandria™ WowPot from Neon Valley Studios, which came out on Tuesday just gone, transports players to the ancient world and the court of Cleopatra.
We’ve all heard about Cleopatra’s milk bath, but did you know she also had a WowPot? This is the WowPot progressive jackpot, which features four different progressive jackpot tiers, with the top prize seeding at €2 million and nearing €15 million at the time of writing – all the riches of the pharaohs!
Once the WowPot Bonus Wheel has been triggered, the player is guaranteed to take home one of the four jackpot prizes in a lump sum. Queen of Alexandria WowPot boasts an expanding wilds respin feature and, in addition to the WowPot game, Queen of Alexandria is available as a standalone game with fixed-limit jackpots.
While SpinPlay Games get their opportunity on 27th April with the release of 9 Blazing Diamonds. With this being a classic slot shot through with fiery gemstones that cascade down the reels as boisterous big band music adds a frenetic pace to the proceedings.
Watch out for the aforementioned blazing diamonds, which award prizes when three or more are scattered on the reels. The Blazing Wheel offers players the chance to win either instant cash prizes or free spins, both of which come with a multiplier up to 4x!
Then it’s back to Egypt with Snowborn Games’ Egyptian Tombs (29 April) as players scour ancient tombs for treasure, bumping into everyone from Cleopatra to the Egyptian sun god Ra along the way.
Landing three Scarab symbols triggers the Tomb Bonus feature, where players can spin the Wheel of Fortune to win 8-50 free spins. Meanwhile, hitting three Scarab symbols during free spins will retrigger the feature and award extra spins. During Super Spins, which is randomly triggered, extra symbols are added to the reels and Ra symbols turn wild.
Other releases for the month include Phoenix Inferno set for release on 21st April, a game that features everyone’s favourite combustible mythical bird, followed by a spot of angling-themed slot action with Fishing Cashpots (26 April) from Inspired.
Finally Microgaming round off a packed month by heading off on a mystical quest to break the eternal frost and unleash the spring with Wild Flower (28 April) from Big Time Gaming.
