Pragmatic Play Set To Bewitch Players With Wild Spells

Explore an intriguing world of elemental magic

Online gambling games provider Pragmatic Play is set to spirit players to a land of sorcery with Wild Spells, the latest addition to its flourishing portfolio of slot games.

The 3×5, 25-line game, which features a black cat wild, crystal ball scatter symbol and three witches harnessing the powers of nature, fire and ice, delivers a story-driven experience with bewitching gameplay and a charming soundtrack, the company boasted in a statement Thursday..

The game’s rich feature set includes an innovative free spins offer that allows players to select their favourite members of the game’s elemental cast, determining the number of free spins they receive.

New Releases From Felix Gaming, Habanero And Booming Games

Diverse themes to appeal to a wide range of player tastes

Bulgarian/UK development studio Felix Gaming has launched an innovative bonus feature in its newest release ‘Dark Mystic’ allowing players greater control over their wins.

This HTML5 title is a 5×3-reel, 10-payline slot with a mythical theme, whose reel symbols include treasure chests, swords and sorceresses.

The game’s unique selling point is a unique bonus engine “Drag Win” allowing players to select the position of an expanding wild which is triggered by a dragon symbol randomly appearing on the reels during the game.

The Dragon symbol acts as an expanding wild, and a player has two seconds to decide where to place it, before it is placed automatically.

If the symbol places automatically and no win occurs, the respin feature is triggered. However, if the player places the wild and no win occurs, it does not.

Bilyan Balinov, chief executive officer for Felix Gaming, said:

“Dark Mystic is a beautiful game with rich graphics and an authentic soundtrack. The Drag Wins feature is something special, and is the result of a lot of hard work under the hood and on the math and mechanics of the slot.”

“It is and industry-first bonus feature, giving players greater control over their wins. This, in turn, helps to ramp up anticipation and excitement, driving engagement levels higher than any other game feature on the market.”

Habanero is due to release ‘Cake Valley’ in the coming weeks. This 5×3, 243 ways to win slot’s reels are loaded with sweet baked treats such as cake and donuts.

The game, which tasks the player to beat the baker, offers Free Spins, Multipliers, Risk game and Gamble feature.

‘Golden Girls’ is Booming Games’ most recent slot release.

It’s a 5-reel, 20-payline, beach-themed title offering multiplying wilds, a Gamble feature and free spins.

Brian Cullingworth

Infopowa news was a staple of Casinomeister’s news from 2000 until 2019. Brian Cullingworth was the main writer, contributor, and was one of the most knowledgeable persons I have ever known involved in the online casino industry.

We first met in January 2001 at the ICE in London where I observed him going booth to booth interviewing online casino, software, and licensing jurisdiction representatives. Brian was also heavily involved with our forum as “Jetset“, he was involved as an informal consultant to eCOGRA, the OPA, and was a player advocate who assisted countless aggrieved players with his connections to industry folks. He also published “Casino Cautions” via Infopowa news for quite a number of years. These can be found in our news archives.

His passing in February 2019 was a dark day for us. He will be forever missed.
