Live 5 Gaming Launches ‘Out of This World’ Slot

UK developer plans to release seven new games before mid-year

Wolverhampton, England developer Live 5 Gaming has announced the release of a new online game titled “Out of This World”, a 1.5 x 3 Video slot with 20 pay-lines and a fantasy-outer space theme.

Volatility on the slot is characterised as Medium – High, with a claimed RTP of 96.1 percent and a win rate of 1 in 5.15; wins pay on adjacent reels.

The bonus feature triggers when the portal symbol lands on the middle reel; when this occurs all symbols are scrubbed from the 3 middle reels, and are replaced by a single symbol, which will fill this window for a guaranteed 20 x 3 of a kind win minimum. Other bonuses available include a 5 of a kind bonus, in which theme characters modify the outcome to give the punter a full window of one symbol and a 20x 5 of a kind reward.

In another feature, the bonus portal will award a “Streak,” in which the sunset sky is a backdrop for a series of three portal wins in succession.

Live 5 Gaming chief executive Lloyd Butler says the company plans on releasing seven new games via NYX and Leander by mid-2018, each with a distinctive theme.

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.
