New Chinese Themed Slot From Realtime Gaming

In Tian Di Yuan Su the Sun and Moon balance the five elements of nature

Online gambling games developer RealTime Gaming has released its latest high resolution online slot, a Chinese mythology themed game based on the Wu Xing concept of five elements, where the Sun and Moon balance the five elements of nature: Fire, Water, Earth, Wood and Metal.

Titled Tian Di Yuan Su (Gods of Nature) the 5 reel, 30 pay-line slot features the Sun as the Wild and doubles the pay-out when it’s part of a winning combination.

Eight free spins with double prizes are awarded when three or more Moon scatters appear. Players are given a choice of five glowing orbs representing each of the elements. They pick one to determine how many free spins they get (up to 33) and to win multipliers up to 15X.

This is the fifth big screen, high resolution slot launched by RTG this year and follows Cai Hong, which pays tribute to Caishen, the Chinese God of Wealth; Fu Chi celebrates the Year of the Dog; Fantasy Mission Force and Eagle Shadow Fist are inspired by action movie hero Jackie Chan; and Shanghai Lights toasts China’s largest and most glamorous city.

Microgaming Releases Wild Scarabs Online Slot

5 reel, 243 ways-to-win game has an ancient Egyptian theme

Golden scarabs – religious symbol of the ancient Egyptian pharaohs – are the Wild key to reward opportunities in the latest Microgaming online slot released today (Thursday).

The 5 reel, 243 ways-to-win game has two Wild features which can create winning combinations for the player; the Wild Deal triggers when a Wild lands on the third reel during a non-winning spin, releasing four additional wilds across the reels for a guaranteed reward.

The entertainment continues into the night in free spins, where three or more Scatters will unlock 10 free spins and the chance to uncover further hidden treasure with Stashed Wilds. Any non-winning wild scarab symbols are collected during the feature, and once three or more are stashed, they will be released back onto the reels to award prizes. The free spins adventure will continue until all the scarabs are released, giving players ample opportunity to discover the Pharaoh’s fortune.

David Reynolds, games publisher at Microgaming, said in a statement Thursday: “Wild Scarabs is a stunning slot with two exciting wild features. Wild Deal gives players a chance to win on a non-winning spin in the base game, while scarabs can be collected during free spins as Stashed Wilds. Delivering rich colours and incredible graphics, the game is really brought to life, transporting players back in time to Ancient Egypt.”

Wild Scarabs is now available on all platforms. Check out the gameplay video here:

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.
