More Treats From Microgaming In November

In addition to much anticipated The Phantom of the Opera slot

Microgaming will release another two slot games in November in addition to its ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ production.

Inspired by the vast plains of Africa, ‘King Tusk’ will take players on a wild adventure in this five-reel, 25 payline online slot. The safari-themed game includes majestic elephants and exciting wild features, realised through beautiful artwork and audio-rich backtracks.

The slot features a mystery wild in the base game which can be triggered randomly when the elephant within the King Tusk logo makes his call. During which, a herd of elephants will stampede onto the reels, turning a random symbol wild or a wild symbol into a vertical wild reel.

Landing three King Tusk symbols will award 10 free spins and activate the opportunity for players to choose from three different free spin games: Dance, Stampede or Gone Wild.

Each spin in the Dance feature will add a wild onto the reels, with each wild sticking for five spins to increase the chances of winning big. During the Stampede feature elephants will charge across the game to randomly turn two reels wild, while the Gone Wild feature can turn all elephant symbols wild. All bonus features can retrigger 10 additional free spins to keep the adventure going.

‘King Tusk’ offers wins of up to 62,000.00 credits and will launch with Microgaming and Quickfire operators on Wednesday 22 November.

Microgaming’s third November offer ‘Lucky Links’ brings the bright lights and an exciting casino atmosphere to players in a five-reel, 20 payline online slot format exclusively created for Microgaming and Quickfire by Just For The Win.

Combining classical good luck charms with a sparkling light show brought to life by vibrant graphics, this slot pays both ways.

At the heart of the game is the Lucky Links feature which adds stacks of linking symbols on the reels that lock into place. The re-spin feature is triggered when a cluster of Lucky Links symbols land on the reels. If additional Lucky Links symbols lock in place during the re-spin, players are awarded additional re-spins to increase the potential for bigger wins.

During the feature, a power bar pulsates to build anticipation and the music and synchronized lights intensify.

Lucky Links goes live with Microgaming and Quickfire operators on Wednesday 15 November.

Bringing Home The Bacon With Pragmatic Play’s 7 Piggies Video Slot

Latest release explores a colourful farmyard setting

Online gambling games developer Pragmatic Play has announced the latest addition to its portfolio of top-performing slot titles, a 3×5 video slot titled 7 Piggies.

Three scatter symbols automatically award five free spins with a 1x multiplier, with players then throwing open the doors of three other barns to reveal more free spins and bigger multipliers.

Pragmatic Play’s release of 7 Piggies follows the recent launches of Diamond Strike and Vegas Nights.

Pragmatic Play’s portfolio contains more than 80 HTML5 slot titles.

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.
