Top Content Providers Have Treats In Store

Myriad of new, exciting slots set for launch

The past few days have seen numerous top gaming content providers sneak-peak upcoming online slot releases covering wide ranging themes and game mechanics.

Microgaming is readying the launch of its ‘Monster Wheels™’ online slot in which players are given the option of playing a reel column set of 2-4-2-4-2 or 4-3-2-3-4, 128 ways or 288 ways respectively.

Featuring supernatural creatures including vampires, she-devils and mummies, engaged in drag races, this is bound to be a fun play.

This new slot offers Free Spins, Multipliers, Scatters, Wilds and much more.

Also from Microgaming, ‘Moby Dick™’, based on the classic 1851 novel by American author Herman Melville, promises to take players on an adventure of a lifetime with Captain Ahab’s crew.

This title offers an exciting Win Freezing feature with bonus spins.

Booming Games is set to launch its beer festival-themed ‘Wunderfest’, a 5×3, 10-payline title serving up expanding symbols and free spins.

In addition, ‘Booming Bananas’ is a fun, jungle-themed title offering Multipliers, Multiplying Wilds, Free Spins, 2-Way Pay and a Gamble feature.

Booongo Gaming is due to release a beautifully illustrated, Asian-themed slot titled ’88 Wild Dragon’.

Magical portals open the gates to parallel worlds of wealth and achievement. If one of the two symbols falls out in one of the worlds, the Red Dragon becomes Wild and burns with a hot flame. Two Black fire-breathing Dragons liven up the action. If they appear immediately in 2 portals – players are guaranteed a Free Spin Game.

NetEnt is readying the imminent launch of ‘Blood Suckers II’, a 5-reel, 3-row, 25-fixed line video slot sequel featuring Wild substitutions, Blood Rose Free Spins, a Hidden Treasure Bonus Game and two Random Features: Bonus Shot Feature and Scatter Shot Feature.

Young vampiress Amilia weaves the story as she arrives at the vampire castle to find the HiddenTreasure of her ancestors that were slayed by vampire hunters many years ago.

‘Fire Joker’ is Play’n Go’s latest 3-reel video slot. The devilish Fire Joker is a wild symbol that can appear in any position on all three reels, where it substitutes for all normal symbols to help build winning combinations.

A Flaming Re-spin feature is triggered when stacked symbols show on any two reels when no winning paylines are present. One free re-spin is then awarded on the third reel with the stacked symbols remaining in place.

Players will be able to spin the fiery Wheel of Multipliers when all reel positions are filled with the same symbol, where their total win can bubble up by a random value up to a maximum of x10.

Swedish software developer Quickspin will launch ‘Mayana’ in early October, set against the backdrop of a temple in the deep jungle, this 3×3 slot features colourful creatures that roar into life when landed upon.

The game expands into a 3×5 slot, as any three or more connecting symbols stick whether in the middle, left or right of the reels.

On the final spin, and if the reel grid has been fully expanded, the Mucha Mayana multiplier may also be activated, which sees spins multiplied X20 the winning stake.

Last but not least, ‘Eastern Goddesses’ from Red Rake Gaming is themed on three of nature’s natural elements – water, wind and fire.

It’s a 3×5 reel, 30-payline game offering a Cascade of Wilds, a “divine” mini game, fire multipliers and a Winds of Fortune feature.

New Slots From Playson And Rival

Rival’s latest offer is titled ‘Gold Bricks’, a three-line, 3-reel classic slot.

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.
