Quickspin’s Ticket To The Stars

Vintage space adventure-themed slot

Quickspin has launched its much anticipated ‘Ticket to the Stars’, a vintage space adventure-themed slot and their second game of the year.

Every point of light in the night sky is a potential vacation destination filled with relaxation, romance and wealth in Ticket to the Stars.

This vintage-Americana-design slot offers an Unlimited Multiplier +2 Spins in the Free Spins Bonus feature along with Swooping Reels and Stacks of Wilds.

Erik Gullstrand, leading Chief Product Officer at Quickspin, said: “Our team has combined the futuristic idea of touring the galaxy with the stylish look of vintage Work Projects Administration posters, all accompanied by beautiful audio compositions. It’s an amazing game with lots of exciting features, and we’re confident that the players will love it just as much as we do!”

“2019 is off to a fantastic start for us, as we wrapped up 2018 by releasing Challenges, our new and amazing promotional tool, as well as meeting our target of 12 new games for the year. With Ticket to the Stars being our second game this year – and several more waiting to be released soon – we’re well on our way to meet our new target of 13 new games this year.”

Microgaming Rolls Out Shogun Of Time

Players invited to traverse the fourth dimension

Japan’s feudal past and cyberpunk future collide in Shogun of Time, the latest online slot developed exclusively for Microgaming by Just For The Win.

Propelling players across parallel realms, Shogun of Time is a captivating four-reel, 81-ways online slot featuring wilds, scatters, transformational free spins and the Reel Split Re-spin feature.

Futuristic fortunes abound in the luminous sprawl of Neo Tokyo, where the chrono-hopping quest for epic wins begins. Joining a fearless time-travelling shogun, players will find themselves looking out onto a neon-tinged future Japanese city.

The colourful 4×3 reel grid gleams with beautifully rendered symbols depicting cherry blossoms and timeless artefacts, including samurai helmets, armour and antique coins. During the base game, wins are awarded when three matching symbols appear in succession from left to right.

Landing four symbols allows players to dramatically increase their wins with the Reel Split Re-spin feature. Upon successful activation, the cybernetic samurai’s time portal at the base of the grid shudders into life, materialising a brand new fifth reel into the middle of the grid. The new reel offers an additional spin with the other reels locked into place. This regeneration allows players to connect some rewarding five symbol wins.

Should three or four free spin symbols materialise on any reel in the base game, a free spins round will pull the player through the vortex and into historical Japan, opening a gateway to a plethora of ancient treasures. The game once again transforms, awarding 8 or 16 free spins played on five reels, 243 ways and paying both ways. The titular hero appears on the middle reel as a stacked wild throughout free spins, resplendent in samurai armour and prepared for triumphant wins.

Leaping through the timelines for temporal treasures, Shogun of Time, the tenth game created by Just For The Win exclusively for Microgaming, was made available earlier this week.

David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming:

“Shogun of Time presents a winning combination of exciting gameplay mechanics and futuristic atmosphere. Just For The Win have delivered another excellent title exclusive to Microgaming, complete with dazzling visuals and an atmospheric, ambient soundtrack, blending traditional Japanese music with pulsating electronica.

“The rich dynamic features add an extra dimension to the time-travelling slot, transforming the base game and ramping up potential rewards. Pulling an additional reel through the time portal, the game-changing Reel Split Re-spin gives players a great chance to make epic wins, while those chasing free spins will be treated to a trip to Japan’s past, seeing the game transform completely into a five-reel slot with an amazing 243 winning ways and a fixed wild reel.

Johan Persson, CEO at Just For The Win:

“We are incredibly excited to introduce players to the realms of Japan’s past and future in Shogun of Time, our latest title developed exclusively for Microgaming.

“Players exploring Neo Tokyo can expect a truly timeless adventure. A vibrantly colourful, cyberpunk art style is complemented by exciting mechanics that drastically increase the player’s chances of netting significant rewards.

“We can’t wait to see players leap into our new world, and experience a double life as a dazzling urbanite and a samurai.”

Queen’s Day Tilt From Play’n GO

Themed on Queen Elizabeth I era’s Accession Day Tilts

Play’n GO’s newest release features an interesting theme linked to the Accession Day Tilts under the reign of Queen Elizabeth I.

‘Queen’s Day Tilt’ is based around the fun and festivities that took place during the celebration and the developer has paid particular detail to historical accuracy.

The game is the first 3×3 grid slot from Play’n GO, a modern update of a classic slot game design, allowing for “larger symbols and easier visibility” while increasing the chances of clearing the grid, and creating more action for the players.

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.
