Good Interactivity In New NextGen Slot

King Kong Fury has an interesting mix of features, too

Online gambling games developer NextGen believes it has a real winner with the launch of its latest release, a 5 reel, 50 pay-line online slot with a slew of interactive features that include Lightning Reel, Kong’s Call, King of Skull Island Free Spins, and Raging Re-Spins.

More standard features include wilds, scatters, conventional free spins and multipliers that enable players to earn as much as 12,500 x stake.

The Lightning Reel Feature and Kong’s Call Feature are the two random features in the game. With the former, players can enjoy up to 15 premium symbols added to the reels, generating significant wins for players.

Kong’s Call appears in the bonus game and the base game and when it is triggered, Wilds are added to the reels. Player who get twelve wilds will find the three centre reels delivering winning combinations of wilds.

The King of Skull Island Free Spins is also worthy of mention, and is activated during the bonus game when the bonus lands on the first and fifth reel. Players are rewarded with at least nine free spins, but that can rise to as many as a hundred. During the bonus free spoins it is possible to re-trigger more spins.

King Kong Fury launched March 21 and can be previewed here:

Red Tiger Gaming To Launch New Online Slot Monday

Day of the Dead Mexican festival the theme for Esqueleto Mariachi

Red Tiger Gaming has announced that it will launch its new online slot Esqueleto Mariachi on March 26, adding to the growing list of games with themes based on the Mexican Day of The Dead festival (think Play’n Go’s Grim Muerto, IGT’s Day of the Dead, Fortunes of the Dead by NextGen and Thunderkick’s Esqueleto Explosivo).

In similar fashion to its predecessors, the Red Tiger offering has a Mexican mariachi sound track, engaging animation and the bizarre symbols we associate with the festival (the title translates as “skeleton mariachi”) but Red Tiger have come up with a fun and innovative format to set their 5 reel, 40 pay-line game apart.

On the right of the reel frame are three shuttered windows, each concealing a musical instrument-playing skeleton. These randomly burst out of the windows to reward players with special features:

Trompetista removes some symbols from the reels to award new pay-outs, whilst Guitarrista will add wilds to guarantee a winning combination, and Maraquero helps collect extra wins by activating a Nudge option. Combined, the three can trigger up to 25 free Mariachi Spins.

Players can win up to 1000x stake thanks to generous multipliers.

Baby Bloomers From Booming Games

5 reel, 10 pay-line slot launches in time for Easter

It’s almost Springtime, and eggs, baby rabbits, lambs, ducklings and chicks form the theme of a new Easter-release online slot from Booming Games this week, titled Baby Bloomers.

The cartoon-style presentation of the farmyard theme underpins a set of features that includes Scatters, Butterfly Wilds, re-triggering Free Spins, Expanding Symbols, Bonus round and Multipliers.

Booming Games claim the RTP on this game is 95.51 percent.

Mexican Wrestling Themed Slot On The Way From Yggdrasil

Lucha Maniacs set for launch on April 24

The next online slot from the Yggdrasil studios is set for launch on April 24, is themed around Mexican lucha (professional wrestling) and titled Lucha Maniacs.

The game’s main attraction is the retriggering Free Spins rounds with their feature combos. There are over 20 features ranging from multipliers to added wilds and stacked reels that can mix and match to make up rewarding combinations.

Players who pay a bit extra with the Golden Bet get the ring-side seats and an additional feature in the Free Spins round. Hit only two scatters and enter a pick’n’click game, where the punter can score coin wins or additional scatters to grant a ticket to the Free Spins. The fun interactive gameplay and colourful characters make this game an engaging and entertaining experience.

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.
