World War Two Movie Theme For New Eye Motion Slot

Armenian developer crafts a slot around 2006 British-Romanian war film The Last Drop

There’s a military flavour in the theme of the latest HTML5 online slot from developer Eye Motion, which has selected a 2006 Romanian-UK World War 2 movie titled The Last Drop as its inspiration.

Hopefully the slot will be more successful than the movie, which appears to have been generally panned due to an unlikely plot and questionable acting.

Details are sparse, but the game has a 243 ways-to-win format with features that include Bonus, Scatter, Wild icons, Gamble with Cards, Free Spins, Jackpot, Mega Jackpot, and up to 5x Multipliers.

The game is the thirteenth from Eye Motion, which has announced an intention to produce up to 40 slots in the months ahead.

Teenagers And Bots In Next Quickspin Game Release

BigBot Crew set for release September 11

Quickspin has commenced pre-launch publicity on its next game release, a 5 reels and 40 pay-lines slot titled BigBot Crew which has a futuristic sci-fi theme.

Preview publicity suggests that the theme revolves around a group of three tech-savvy teenagers in a parallel universe of the future who are building the advanced robots of tomorrow on the outskirts of a sprawling exotic metropolis.

A cast of helpful robots guide players through the game, with special symbols that include the Bigbot Wild which triggers respins. The Bonus Scatter is also included, which initiates free spins. When three bonus scatter symbols appear in the same spin, eight free spins are unlocked, while one additional free spin is also awarded for every Bigbot Wild symbol fully landing on the reels.

BigBot is due for release September 11 across desktop and mobile channels.

Lightning Box Games Collaborates With Incredible Technologies In New Slot

Astro Pug has an Asian canine theme

Incredible Technologies and Lightning Box Games, creators of video slot hit Astro Cat, have teamed up once again to provide opportunities for luck and good fortune with the latest Reelfecta title – Astro Pug.

The 5 reel Asian-themed game has a canine central character that flies across the screen to generate winning combinations, and players have 1,296 Ways to Win with the innovative third reel feature, Reelfecta.

Reelfecta turns the standard third reel into a 4×4 grid comprised of 16 individual symbols that can create reward opportunities once matched with the other reels. Look out for wild multipliers that can double, treble or quadruple pay-outs as well as a free spins round with sticky wilds here.

The Bone Multiplier feature is another potentially rewarding experience and triggers on reel two, doubling, trebling or quadrupling pay-outs depending on how many bones are on display.

Players will be eager to see five bonus scatters land within the Reelfecta grid to trigger free spins.

This free spin event continues as long as a Wild Astro Pug lands on the outside border within the Reelfecta grid, beginning in the top left corner. Each time a wild pug lands, an additional spin is awarded and the wild locks for the duration of the free spin event. Once all 12 outer positions of the Reelfecta grid fill with wild pugs, a Mega Spin is awarded where the entire Reelfecta grid is full of Wild symbols.

Astro Pugs due for general release on September 19 this year.

Developer launches a new version of popular slot

Da Vinci Diamonds, a slot originally developed by IGT but now enjoying a fresh lease of life through games developer High 5 Games, has been refreshed into a new version titled Double Da Vinci Diamonds…and company publicity suggests that a Triple version is also in development.

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.
