By Brian Cullingworth, Last updated May 26, 2017

Adventurous New Online Slot From Merkur

Voyage of Discovery is a salute to sea-faring navigator Christopher Columbus

Online gambling games developer Merkur has launched its latest offer, a 5 x 3 reel, 5 pay-line slot titled Voyage of Discovery with a theme that salutes the sea-faring adventures of 15th century navigator Christopher Columbus.

The game features Wilds, Scatters and free spins, and has a claimed RTP of 96.85 percent.

It is launched simultaneously on mobile and desktop, and comes in English, French, S[anish, German and Italian language versions.

New Online Slot From Endorphina

In Jazz is one of four new games released by developer this month

Prague-based online gambling games developer Endorphina has launched its latest online slot, a five reel, 25 pay-line game titled In Jazz.

As the title suggests, the theme is a look back in time to an era when jazz held sway with cool music in an environment of dim lights, smoky air, clinking glasses and powerful instrumentals. And the release is topical too – it launches in time for International Jazz Day.

Among the symbols spinning on the reels, there are musical card symbols, proper jazz instruments, and a jazzmen duo along with a lovely ‘thirties style singer.

In Jazz has features that include Free Games, Scatters, Wilds, Multipliers and an intriguing Risk Game.

Two New Microgaming Slots On The Way

Widely differing themes on new games

Online gambling games and software provider Microgaming has two more new slots lined up for an apparently insatiable market, publishing videos on titles Goldwyn’s Fairies and Beautiful Bones.

The two games are similarly rich-featured with an abundance of rewarding possibilities, but have very disparate background themes carried by sharp graphics and sound effects.

Goldwyn’s Fairies has a charming mystical feel backed by particularly enchanting music, whilst Beautiful Bones appears to be modelled on the Mexican Festival of the Dead, when citizens don ghoulish make-up to celebrate the lives of the departed.

Goldwyn’s Fairies slot is a 5 reel, 3 rows and 20 fixed pay-line game with the higher paying symbols of 4 different fairies for each of the Seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. The game was reportedly developed by an outfit called “Just for The Win”, which has crafted a game populated by an enchanted forest full of fairies, gemstones and a slew of features that includes bonuses, free spins, a trio of returning wilds, scatters and re-spins.

Beautiful Bones is a 5 reel, 243 ways-to-win video slot with a range of features that includes wild re-spins, returning wilds as well as a free spins, scatters and multipliers.

Both are due for release on May 17, simultaneously across desktop, mobile and tablet channels.

Red Rake Gaming’s Wildcano Slot Launches Tomorrow

Valencia-based games developer offers something a little different

Spanish games developer Red Rake Gaming is launching a refreshingly different online slot on Thursday in the form of Wildcano, a 3 reel, 8 line game with a Bonus Round, Free Spins, Instant Play, Autoplay, Wilds, Scatters, and Multipliers that will be released for desktop and mobile.

The claimed RTP is RTP of 96.3 percent.

The game has a tropical volcanic island – ancient civilisation theme with engaging visual and sound effects which include a descent into the volcano, but it boasts a key departure from the norm with its orbital rather than vertical reel animation.

The company has said that it is keen to increase its HTML5 game offering and hopes to achieve licensing as a provider in Malta.

“We already have ten games in html5 and each month we are taking one or two more. At the online level, we want to obtain the license of Malta Type 4 to be able to access to a lot of operators that operate from there with that type of license and that it reaches many markets,” a spokesman said.

Playtech Launch American Dad!

Based on successful, wacky American animated sitcom

Playtech has launched its latest licensed slot game, American Dad!, based on the successful animated sitcom of the same name.

Set in Langley Falls and featuring the Smith family and friends, this wacky five-reel, 40-line slot game offers a myriad of features.

Landing two ‘Schmooblydong Wheel’ symbols earns a re-spin with a random modifier while three of the same will reward with powered-up free games.

Trigger ‘Roger’s Random Wilds’ feature to witness the show’s beloved space alien return from a wild night out and spit out up to 10 random wilds, or activate the Wheels and the Legman feature and watch as the characters chase one another across the reels leaving a trail of wild symbols on every feature spin, for a chance to win some mega money prizes.

“American Dad! is another top casino title and a fantastic addition to our leading portfolio of premium-branded games,” James Frendo, Casino Director, Playtech, said.

“Based on one of the world’s most popular animated sitcoms, this vibrant, feature-rich game stands out in the market and provides players with unique and high-quality entertainment.”

Zeus Play Launch Explorer’s Quest

And two new lottery games

The new fantasy-themed slot from Zeus Play’s NXG line, Explorer’s Quest, offers a new “shared reel” feature.

Located on the middle reel of the 9-reel, 10-line video slot, the shared reel enables wins from left to right until the share reel and vice versa.

In related news, Zeus Play also debuted its Lucky Picks and Pentacore Plus lottery games.

Lucky Picks offers two lucky slots bonus features, regular bet and 6 special bets all linked to a progressive jackpot network. Pentacore Plus is also linked to the progressive jackpot network, offers a regular six number pick and a multiplier balls bonus feature.

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.
