Double Trouble With Habanero’s Panda Panda

Supplier’s latest HTML5 release includes ways paying feature

Online slots and table games provider Habanero is set to bear all with its latest online slot release, Panda Panda.

Set against the backdrop of a waterfall and beautiful cherry trees, the game sees the baby bears perform somersaults when they are paired up together.

And when players hit the big win, the characters spring to life by sliding down bamboo shoots as coins tumble down around them.

This 243 ways slot features an innovative way of paying left to right or right to left based on the outcome of the spin, depending on which total pay is the larger. Also included for the first time is a preview screen, which provides an insight into what’s in store for the player later in the game.

Habanero says that Panda Panda is the latest game in a batch of new content from the developer, which is scheduled to release ten new titles during 2017, with four already gone live to date, bringing the company’s games inventory to 75 video slots titles, 9 table games, and 50 video poker titles, integrated into over 45 operators and aggregators and available in 21 European and Asian languages.

Microgaming Dazzles With Four New May Releases

Diverse themes to appeal to players across all channels

Microgaming released a raft of new games this month featuring diverse themes to appeal to a broad range of player preferences.

Candy Dreams Online Slot is a 720 ways to win, variable reel game. Players spin on a colorful reel area filled with candy treats, as they play towards bonus triggers.

There are two different scatter symbols that trigger two dynamic features. 12 free spins are activated by three or more special scatter symbols, during which there is a special wild that sends extra wilds onto the reels to create new winning combinations. The Candy Planet bonus is awarded when three or more bonus scatters land, which is a pick until you pop feature, awarding cash prizes.

With wins up to 110,000.00 credits available, this slot is sure to appeal to most.

Next up, “Forbidden Throne Slot” is a dramatic 40-fixed line, graphic-rich slot that leads players on a journey to discover the mystery that looms in the kingdom of the Forbidden Throne, alongside two legendary guardians, Wulthor the Elven Lord of Fire and Sorconass the Queen of Ice.

The base game features at least one guaranteed stacked wild on every spin. When all five reels are filled with wilds, this rewards a generous 500x the line bet.

Three, four or five scatters trigger 10, 20 and 30 retriggerable free spins, respectively. Guaranteed wild reels continue in the free spins round, unleashing the potential for some magical wins. The game promo can be accessed here:

The 2D manga art-styled “Fortune Girl Slot” is a five reel, 15 line game offering rich features.

The slot features a collection of traditional treasures as high symbols. The scatter is represented by the Magic Lion, a cultural icon of luck and fortune.

Throughout gameplay, players can unlock a stream of mystery symbols that collectively transform into a random symbol, allowing for big wins across multiple lines. Scatters can also be revealed within the mystery symbols.

Free spins are triggered by three or more scatters, releasing 14 free spins along with a multiplier trail that increases for all remaining spins every time three or more scatters land, up to maximum 5x. Check it out here:

Candy Dreams, Forbidden Throne and Fortune Girl all went live at the beginning of this month.

Microgaming’s upcoming May release, “Goldwyn’s™ Fairies Slot” is a magical five reel, 20-line slot offering free spins, re-spins and wilds.

In the returning wild feature, when Goldwyn appears in the base game on reel three, she will enchant the symbol space by leaving a returning wild and starting the re-spin mode. Re-spins continue as long as Goldwyn appears on any reel. During the final spin, all the returning wilds transform into classic wilds. Goldwyn can appear on all the reels during the re-spin mode.

Hitting three scatter symbols on reels one, three and five will trigger 10 free spins. During the first nine spins, Goldwyn can cast her magical spell, returning wilds. On the 10th free spin all the positions that she has enchanted will summon the classic wild to return, and fortunate players will be granted up to 15 wilds on the reels. Check it out here:

Goldwyn’s Fairies, the first ever game by Just For The Win, goes live later this week.

“We’re delivering a whole host of games for May, each bringing a different theme and feature set,” David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, said.

“Candy Dreams lends on the popularity of candy-themed games in mobile and social gaming, so we expect this to do particularly well on the mobile platform.

“Guaranteed wilds in the epic Forbidden Throne will ensure players are entertained throughout, while mystery symbols in Fortune Girl and their ability to reveal scatters, we believe will become a player-favourite. Goldwyn’s Fairies is a beautifully designed game comprising three different wild symbols, with gripping base game and free spin features that will enchant players.”

Wins Of Fortune From Quickspin

Upcoming release has an Asian feel

QuickSpin has teased its upcoming release “Wins of Fortune” which is set in a picturesque valley in the heart of Asia where players will head into battle with mythical characters of old quest stories.

Game features include Wins of Fortune Respin in which any win triggers the re-spins feature. The winning symbols move one step to the left as the grid evolves, and remaining symbols stick for the re-spin. Wins are paid for each re-spin and continues until there are no more wins.

The sky turns red in the Super Respin mode, which starts when the game reaches the full 5×5 grid.

All winning symbols stay, and the game re-spins until there are no additional winning symbols on the grid.

A demo of the game, which is scheduled for launch mid-June 2017, can be watched here:

“Naked Gun” offers bonus features including four free spin games, Home Run Free Spins, Stake Out Free Spins, On The Edge Free Spins and Crime Scene Free Spins.

Each free spin bonus game offers a variation on the roaming wild theme and in addition, On The Edge Free Spins sees the number of active win-lines expand from 20 to 40.

“We have developed several slots using third party brands, offering players familiarity and operators exciting marketing opportunities. Naked Gun is a great addition to our portfolio and we are excited to be able to offer it to our partners,” Matt Cole, CEO at Blueprint Gaming, said.

Naked Gun joins the operator-specific ‘Jackpot King’ progressive jackpot system from Blueprint affording players the chance to win prizes in the Super Reels, or a Progressive Jackpot via the Wheel King.

Playtech’s Karaoke Slot Has An Asian Flavour

Two New Online Slots From Playtech

Super Lion and Si Ling debut

Online gambling games and software developer Playtech has released two new online slots with widely differing themes – a futuristic but basic game titled Super Lion, and an ancient Chinese-themed slot dubbed Si Ling.

Playtech has gone back to basics with Super Lion in simple, no frills, 5 reel, 10 pay-line game with sharp and colourful gem graphics and a futuristic sound track. Expanding Super Lion Wilds are the main and in fact sole standard feature in the game, which does not offer Scatters, Bonus rounds or Free Spins. There is, however, a jackpot that triggers when yellow, green, purple, blue and red gemstone symbols land on an active payline.

Si Ling is more in keeping with modern slot trends, although its theme is ancient China. This is a  5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot that boasts a Bonus and re-triggering Free Spins, and a theme enlivened with animated graphics.

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.
