The weird and spooky is the theme for this offering, just in time for the Halloween rush, with the ancient cabinet’s drawers and reels full of creepy objects such as man-eating plants, voodoo hearts, skulls, potions, Tarot cards, lurking monsters and a very sinister doll which acts as a Scatter and can help generate a 1,000x multiplier on the player’s bet.

Look out for the appearance of silver and gold drawers, which contain prizes – two drawers trigger an additional spins and multiplier features.

Microgaming Launch Cash Of Kingdoms

Developed by Slingshot Studios

Microgaming’s much anticipated, medieval-themed ‘Cash of Kingdoms’ slot has been launched today (Wednesday).

Developed by Slingshot Studios exclusively for Microgaming, ‘Cash of Kingdoms’ offers a myriad of features backed by rich audio and graphics.

Five fearless heroes, including a dashing Knight, crafty Rouge and a feisty Archer, accompany players on their quest in this five by three reel, 15 payline game.

The Invading Wilds feature, which appear in both the base game and free spins is designed to unleash a barrage of flaming arrows and swishing swords to turn reels wild.

If the player lands a full stack of wilds on reel 2 or 4, Invading Wilds™ will turn an adjacent reel wild. If a full stack of wilds lands on reels 2 and 4, then the middle reel turns wild. With the game paying in both directions, this means that every Invading Wilds™ feature will pay.

Free spins can be triggered during the base game when landing three scatter symbols. In free spins, when a full stack of wilds lands on reels 2 and 4, the third reel will turn wild and an additional 2x multiplier is awarded. During the round, each landed scatter will award an additional free spin.

‘We are extremely excited to release Cash of Kingdoms, the first game under our studio brand,” Richard Vermaak, head of studio at Slingshot Studios said. “Our team has worked hard building a product we hope players will have as much fun playing as we’ve had creating.”

“Built with strong and regular features, which are amplified by paying both ways, the game delivers plenty of on-screen action on any device, together with a popular theme that is sure to make it a player favourite,” added David Reynolds, games publisher at Microgaming. “Slingshot Studios has brought a dynamic addition to Microgaming’s diverse portfolio with Cash of Kingdoms, and we cannot wait to unveil more exclusive creations from them in the coming months.

Wazdan Launches Hot777 Deluxe Slot

Wild West themed online slot has 3 reels and a 5 pay-line format

Online gambling slots developer Wazdan has announced the launch of the 3 reels and 5 pay-line new slot Hot777 Deluxe with a theme based on the Wild West.

Developed in latest HTML5 technology and available on all devices, new game is based on one of Wazdan’s most popular slots to date, the classic Hot 777 slot.

The action of Hot 777 Deluxe takes place somewhere in a Wild West desert, with tumbleweeds periodically rolling across the main screen. The reels of this updated classic are filled with traditional slot symbols like oranges, pears, lemons, cherries, plums, grapes and well as the most rewarding red, gold and fiery 7 symbols.

Relaxing ambient sounds are accompanied by the spin button’s reloading six barrel, explosions and campfire guitar playing,

Players seek to collect golden bullets every time a Hot 7 symbol appears anywhere on the reels. When the whole cowboy belt is filled with bullets and players hit the bonus symbol again, a hyper-rewarding Hot Spins feature is triggered. The sun sets over the desert and players receive 10 extra spins with Hot 7 symbols blocked on the reels for prizes.

The new game includes solid Wazdan facilities seen in other offerings from this developer; players looking for more rewards can enter the Unique Gamble Feature, where a beautiful lady Sheriff holding two giant swag bags encourages them to double their wins up to 7 times.

Those who want to customise the game can change the Volatility Levels to adjust the amount and frequency of wins to meet their preferences.

Head of sales at Wazdan Andrzej Hyla said Wednesday: “Hot 777 has a considerable installed base of enthusiastic players, so we were looking for ways to augment their enjoyment and add to the pathway for developing our successful slots into the next generation. Our designers and developers have responded in style with Hot 777 Deluxe, which is an immersive and playable game that has introduced a number of new features to the original popular game.

New Horror Slot From Rival Gaming

Dr.Acula is brimming with bats, blood and booty

Online gambling software and games developer Rival Gaming has entered the annual Halloween games race, releasing a scary horror slot titled Dr.Acula, with a typically Frankenstein feel.

With a simple 3 reel, 5 pay-line lay-out, Dr. Acula is brimming with bats, blood and booty. Assisted by his rather frightening nurse and a cellar full of bats, Dr. Acula has a sure cure for whatever is ailing his patients. A squirty syringe, pulsating plasma bags and tinkling test tubes spin on the new game’s reels.

Dr. Acula’s prescription for winning includes multi symbol payouts. Three of the blood bank symbols (syringe, plasma bags, and test tubes) and Triple Lucky Lightning Sevens will both scare up some big wins, whilst the the Dr. Acula icon offers a double shot of winning chances as it’s the Wild and the Jackpot icon!

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.
