Sidewinder Is Microgaming’s New Release For September

Multi-featured slot developed exclusively for Microgaming by Just For The Win studios

Microgaming‘s new release for September is a 5 reel online slot titled Sidewinder, which was developed exclusively for the Isle of Man online gambling provider by the independent Just For The Win studio.

The game includes free spins, expanding wilds and the title feature, Sidewinder, which expands the slot reel with horizontal wild reels that increase the player’s win potential by transforming the game from 243 ways-to-win up to 1125.

In the base game, the Sidewinder feature can be activated by either wild symbols or free spins. A top wild symbol activates the top horizontal reel, while a bottom wild symbol triggers the bottom reel, with both increasing the ways and allowing for additional wilds to land.

Activating one horizontal reel increases the ways to 576, and triggering both will increase the ways to 1125, expanding the player’s horizon with big reward opportunities.

Landing three Sidewinder symbols in the base game awards players with six free spins, while acquiring four symbols rewards ten, with both conditions transporting players to the game’s free spins round.

In free spins, the Sidewinder feature is always active and the game is played with 1125 ways on every spin. During the round, players can earn an extra spin for each Sidewinder symbol that lands on the horizontal reels. If wild symbols land on the same position on both horizontal reels, they connect to create expanding wilds. If three or more expanding wilds connect, players are in with a chance to earn spectacular wins.

Sidewinder is live on all platforms from Wednesday 12 September.

Tiger Holmgren, chief product officer at Just For The Win, said in a launch statement Wednesday:

“Sidewinder is the first game in the Just For The Win Casino Suite range, a suite designed to give players a premium casino experience with vibrant graphics and thrilling features. Sidewinder is an action packed game that fits well into the casino style setting by delivering excitement and massive big win potential.”

David Reynolds, games publisher at Microgaming, said: “Sidewinder is a game changing feature that enhances both wins and ways with horizontal wild reels to expand players’ chances of scoring wild rewards. It’s an engaging new release developed by Just For The Win, with a straightforward mechanic that is guaranteed to level up gameplay for new and experienced players.”

German Bierfest Theme In New Booming Games Slot

Wunderfest Deluxe takes players on a German beer festival tour

Hard on the heels of the latest German bierfest slot title Stein Haus from Greentube (see previous InfoPowa report) online gambling games developer Booming Games has announced the launch of a similarly themed video slot titled Wunderfest Deluxe.

With the real Oktoberfest just over the horizon in October, the timing for the 5 reel, 25 pay-line game is good as the theme whisks players away on a bierfest adventure, replete with oompah music, pretzels, accordions, beer steins, waitresses, wurst and beer kegs.

Features include Scatters, Vertical Multiplying Wilds and Wilds, bonus rounds, free spins in an HTML5 package that makes the game accessible across desktop and mobile channels.

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.
