Betsoft Announces Launch Date For New Chillipop Slot

Hot Mexican cuisine is the theme

Online gambling games developer BetSoft has announced that it’s latest Slot3 multi-channel slot will be released on November 28, describing the new game Chillipop as a “cluster-based, cascading slot game with a secret ingredient: an expanding grid offering explosive new ways to win.”

The theme appears to be Mexican cuisine with delicious flavours, spices and colours, all backed by a Mariachi soundtrack. Players try to assemble the perfect salsa, matching symbols like tomatoes, onions, garlic, and red, yellow, and green peppers to create the tastiest (and top-paying) combinations.

Like the sauce itself, things can heat up quickly in Chillipop; any configuration of 3 or more adjacent symbols pays out, and as items are added to the pot, new symbols cascade down to replace them. Couple this with the wild piñata symbol – which can substitute for any ingredient, as well as creating stacked multipliers when several appear on-screen – and players can create maximum flavour from a single spin.

The fiesta gets into full swing with the Free Falls feature, triggered by 3 or more pack mule scatter symbols appearing at once. Over an allocation of between 5 and 20 free spins, Chillipop then uses BetSoft’s proprietary ‘trail system’ to track the number of sombrero-sporting mules that players collect, with set milestones expanding the size of the cooking pot even further. From an initial 5×3 grid, the Free Falls feature can grow the playing area to a massive 8×8, with the new dimensions dramatically increasing the number of paylines.

Claimed RTP on the game is 95.38 percent, and features include Wilds, Scatters, Multipliers, Bonus and up to 26 Free Spins.

New Quickspin Slot Has An Ancient Egypt Theme With A Modern Feel

Join Anna in a hunt for the Pharaoh’s treasure

Online gambling games developer Quickspin‘s new Ark of Mystery slot has an interesting ancient Egypt theme with the twist of a modern treasure hunt by a beautiful adventurer-explorer called Anna.

Watch out for this lady, who can reward the player with a 50x bet multiplier if five land across the reels.

The 5 reel, 3 row, 20 pay-line game has a claimed RTP of 96.53 percent and rightfully boasts quality sound effects and graphics depicting hieroglyphs, pyramids, tombs and a glowing golden mysterious Ark of the Covenant which gives the slot its title and acts as the Wild in the game.

Two notable features in the game are Wild Ark Respins and the Multiplier Boosters, which can deliver a maximum reward of 6,509x bet for the lucky gambler.

Wild Ark Respins triggers when an Ark lands on any of the middle 3 reels, locking all wilds intoposition and delivering a free respin. As each respin starts, the wild symbols expand to an open adjacent position on the same reel, and continue to do so in subsequent respins until all adjacent positions are filled, or a maximum of six respins is achieved.

Multiplier Boosters are presented by the pyramid, which only appears on the fifth reel, with each pyramid generated a 1x multiplie

Yggdrasil Releases Its Third ‘Dark’ Game

Enter the wicked world of voodoo with Baron Samedi

Innovative gaming solutions supplier Yggdrasil has released its latest epic slot game, the voodoo-themed Baron Samedi, which boasts a staggering 36 feature collections.

In the third in a trio of dark-themed games including the recently launched Wolf Hunters and Dark Vortex (see previous InfoPowa reports), players are invited to enter the mystical world of the all-mighty spirit lord Baron Samedi, with the 3×5, 25 pay-line slot featuring a host of other-worldly symbols and collectible features.

The games most engaging feature is the deck of 36 collectible tarot cards, each representing a specific feature of either super stacked symbols, added wilds or mystery symbols, guaranteed win lines or win multipliers. Whenever the cards appear, they bestow their features to the player, as well as fill their corresponding collections.

Cards always appear three at a time and are dealt as soon as a player gets at least two scatters or fills a collection. Hitting two scatters gives players one Voodoo Respin with three random cards dealt, while hitting three or more gives players a coin win and seven to 15 Free Spins with three feature cards dealt every spin. Filling any of the 36 collections also rewards players with three respins.

Yggdrasil head of slots, Jonas Strandman, said Thursday: Thirty-six collections might sound overwhelming at first, but as players begin their journey, they will find a well-balanced, action-packed game where powerful feature combinations can be activated with every spin, with the added anticipation of wins when they finish a collection.

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.
