Habanero Launches New Jump Slot

Developer gets players bouncing with retro theme

Online slots and table games provider Habanero is transporting players back to a time when gaming was fast, fun, and furious with their latest slot release Jump!

Featuring popular retro-themed symbols, including fruits, bells, and lucky number Sevens, as well as a synthesizer soundtrack, the developer claims it is one of the most engaging offerings to date.

Players are tasked with collecting coins, with five Jumping Joker re-spins triggering the free game bonus as win lines increase from 192 ways all the way up to 1024.

By collecting all six symbols in winning combinations, players can also activate the Stacked Spin feature, with five of the same random symbols scattered randomly in the next spin, offering them the chance to unlock significant reward opportunities.

Wicked Tales: Dark Red Unveiled By Microgaming

Interesting new slot developed exclusively by independent Triple Edge Studios

Online gambling software and games developer Microgaming has released its latest game developed by the independent Triple Edge Studio, a five reel, 25 pay-line slot titled Wicked Tales: Dark Red,

The game is exclusive to Microgaming and comes from the independent designers behind Microgaming’s Playboy Gold and Halloween online slots.

The theme reimagines a classic tale with a wicked new twist, set in the foreboding forests of Ravenmire, where fortune and fantasy collide. It features Triple Edge’s signature Wandering Reels, a group of three reels that spin together and contain Jumbo Blocks, which work to increase the player’s chance of landing big wins.

Landing three bonus symbols in the base game triggers the Wolf’s Wheel Bonus, where the suspense intensifies. During the bonus, players have the chance to spin the wheel for cash prizes, multipliers and the treasure chest, a symbol that leads to the Forest of Fortunes where the game’s pick bonus awaits.

Within the Forest of Fortunes, players can choose from a number of leather pouches to find cash prizes, which combine with a multiplier that increases each time a pouch with a cash prize is revealed. Immunities in the form of an axe can also be collected, helping players prolong the bonus round by defending against the lurking werewolf attempting to bring an end to the feature.

Landing on any high symbols during the wheel bonus activates the free spins round, where nine free spins are awarded. The round features Wandering Reels and takes place in a deserted cabin, providing players a sanctuary from the stalking werewolf as they spin their way to big rewards.

Wicked Tales: Dark Red is live on all platforms from Wednesday 26 September 2018.

David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, said Wednesday: “Wicked Tales: Dark Red brings back the exhilarating Wandering Reels feature alongside a gripping feature guaranteed bonus wheel, which can lead to a pick bonus round or free spins round. Triple Edge Studios have done an amazing job in combining darker elements with exciting features and new math design to inject newfound thrill and suspense into a classic tale.”

Triple Edge Studios is an independent studio that supplies exclusive online gaming content to Microgaming for use in non-US markets.

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.
