New Play’n Go Online Slot Combines Leprechauns And Hellish Devils

Unusual theme for Leprechaun Goes to Hell

Play’nGo’s latest online slot, launched this week, has an unusual theme that brings together lucky leprechauns and the heat and fire of Hell itself.

Titled Leprechaun Goes to Hell this is a 5-reel, 25-payline multi-featured game that includes your typical Irish leprechaun but instead of rainbows, the fires of hell and a rather delectable she-devil called Evilene.

Both function as Wilds in the game. Other symbols setting the scene are a pot of gold (the scatter), pentagrams and potions.

Features include up to 10 Free Spins, Multipliers up to x10, and an Infernal Bonus round that can lead to 50 Free Spins, where the game reconfigures into a 3-reel, 5-payline slot. The player’s objective is to score as many wins as possible in order to drive the temperature sufficiently high to release one of four jackpots.

Yggdrasil’s Valley Of The Gods Slot Launches This Week

Innovative format gives players 3,125 ways to win

August 24 is the date set for the launch of Yggdrasil’s new ancient Egyptian themed 5 reel game Valley of the Gods, which offers players up to 3,125 ways to win and an opportunity to win 20x bet.

The colourful and multi-featured game is liberally illustrated with Egyptian hieroglyphics and typical symbols from the time, all backed by a relevant sound track.

Watch out for the new Blocker feature; during the base game a dozen Blockers cover 12 reel locations, and whenever the player scores a win scarabs are released which remove the Blockers. Once all the Blockers have been eliminated red and blue scarabs are released ; the former award multipliers whilst the red beetles provide additional lives.

The claimed RTP is 96.2 percent, and the new game is released on desktop and mobile channels.

Magical Releases From Microgaming (Update)

Enchanting worlds and epic adventures

Microgaming’s September releases are sure to enchant players with rich sound, graphics and multiple features.

Legendary Chinese characters feature in ‘108 Heroes Multiplier Fortune’ a three-reel slot in which the band of warriors return to deliver fast-paced action backed by the similar, lavish and traditional Chinese graphics of its predecessor.

The 108 Heroes can multiply wins and act as wilds. Players can seize rewards with multiplier wild respins for a chance to double wins. Multiplier wilds exist on every wheel and can combine for wins of up to 10x the original bet, whilst stacking two or more multiplier wilds on the centre reel will trigger the respin feature for guaranteed wins.

108 Heroes Multiplier Fortune goes live with Microgaming and Quickfire operators on September 6, September 2017.

Players are invited to embark on an enchanting adventure in ‘Gnome Wood™’, a 5-reel, 25-payline online slot developed by Rabcat and exclusive to Microgaming and Quickfire operators.

Featuring beautiful graphics and animations, Gnome Wood™ will take players on a spellbinding journey into a magical woodland inhabited by mystical creatures.

The online slot features Wandering Wilds, which can appear on any reel in both the base game and free spins to activate bonus spins. These Wandering Wild symbols can also materialise as Multiplier Wandering Wilds with the ability to double winnings.

A Gamble Game feature grants up to five chances to choose from two magical cauldrons, one of which will illuminate and double wins.

Gnome Wood goes live on Microgaming and Quickfire across desktop and mobile channels on September 6, 2017.

“Players are in for epic adventures with our new game additions this September,” David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, said.

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.
