Betsoft’s Latest Online Slot Just A Week Away From Launch

Yak, Yeti and Roll is the new winter-themed online slot due release on December 14

Malta-based casino content developer Betsoft Gaming has released details of its new slot Yak, Yeti and Roll a week ahead of its December 14 launch.

The 5 reel, 20 pay-lines game has a claimed RTP of 95.93 percent (96.54 percent on Feature Buy) and is themed around two wacky companions on a wintry trip across the frozen tundra populated by the Yeti and Yaks. They are supplied on their journey by an imaginative Inuit inventor who has developed a traditional sleigh powered by the amusing cartoon characters.

The duo invite players aboard on a journey to hunt down prizes hidden among the deep snow drifts. The slot is powered by Betsoft’s exclusive Trail system, and as the intrepid duo navigate the ice fields by pedal power, an endless trail moves across the bottom of the reels, filled with green, yellow, and white gems.

Every time a gem is crushed underneath the spiked wheels, a prize is awarded from a pool of instant cash, cumulative multipliers, and free spins – with a maximum win of 200-times stake.

The other symbols on the cluster-based reels pay out when they freeze in groups of three or more and comprise warm woollen mittens, reindeer with ribbons in their antlers, glowing igloos and huskies. and

Microgaming Release Book Of Oz

Developed by Triple Edge Studios

Microgaming released its fifth exclusive title by independent developer Triple Edge Studios today (Tuesday).

‘Book of Oz’ offers a world of magic and enchantment in a five-reel, ten-payline format.

Featuring Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins and Re-Spins, the fantasy themed slot encompasses whimsical art and captivating symbols, such as the lion of courage, the potion of love, the mystical wizard and the golden book.

The Wizard’s Book acts as both a scatter and a wild, which can result in powerful wins. Three or more Book Scatter Symbols trigger 10, 12 or 25 free spins, providing players with the opportunity for more frequent feature triggers. High-paying expanding and illuminating symbols can potentially trigger wins of up to 5,000 times the initial bet in free spins.

A Re-spin feature in the base game allows players to pay to respin a single reel independently after their initial wager.

“This has been the most fun we’ve had developing a game and the Re-spin feature is a brilliantly fun addition,” Brendan Walton, Design lead at Triple Edge Studios, said.  “Bespoke hand-painted art was created to help tell our fantastical tale. Infused with fantasy and adventure, Book of Oz will leave players spellbound. Stay tuned for more exciting games from us in the future, which we will be supplying exclusively for Microgaming.”

“Book of Oz is another fantastic creation by Triple Edge Studios enriched with magical artistry and packed with rich game mechanics,” added Dave Reynolds, games publisher at Microgaming.

“Players can listen to an intriguing soundtrack while immersing themselves in the game to uncover an enthralling storyline as they play. The Re-Spin feature adds a new dynamic twist to the overall gameplay, enhancing the level of engagement and it combines extremely well with the win potential in the game, where players can win up to 5,000 times their bet.

Book of Oz is exclusively available for Microgaming operators across desktop and mobile platforms.

Realistic Games Releases Spin Dizzy Slot

Enter the forest of enchantment…

Online casino content developer Realistic Games is offering players the chance to explore an enchanted forest with its new slot release, the five-reel Spin Dizzy.

Filled with woodland magic including toadstools, pots of gold, and four-leaf clovers, the game promises to provide mysterious features as well.

Look out for the fairy, who can deliver either the Spinning Wild or the Spinning Symbol feature on any single game, ensuring there is always something to captivate the player’s imagination.

Spin Dizzy also features an exciting Free Spins bonus round triggered by three or four Scatter symbols. The player will win either a wild symbol or a free spin on each of the 15 reel positions.

There are multiple wilds aplenty too, which can stay in place for every spin. Each wild symbol can also have a multiplier added to boost rewards. Once the free spins are over, the fairy can appear and start the feature repeatedly.

Robert Lee, commercial director of Realistic Games, said Thursday: “With its innovative bonus round and additional features in the base game we are sure Spin Dizzy will be a hit with our players.

“The game is the second to be delivered using our Games Machine technology and enables us to create more fun and exciting features. Our operator partners and their players can expect bigger and better games utilising this technology in 2019.”

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.
