Netent Releases Halloween Jack Preview

But the format looks rather like the developer’s Jack and the Bean Stalk

Online gambling games and software developer NetEnt has released preview details on its new Halloween-targeted slot, a 5 reel, 20 pay-line game titled Halloween Jack with a slew of features that include Wilds, Free Spins, Walking Wilds, Expanding Symbols, Symbols and Energy collection, Respins, and Scatters.

Scheduled for release October 24 across mobile and desktop channels, the game has a claimed RTP of 96,28 percent and a predictably haunting theme replete with groans and moans, spooky music and ghoulish artwork.

Slot enthusiasts on the forums are already observing that the format bears more than a passing resemblance to the company’s Jack and the Beanstalk show-stopper.

Ride With The Valkyries In Latest Playtech Online Slot

Three themed mini-games in Call of the Valkyries

Playtech has released its new Call of the Valkyries online slot, a 5 reel, 25 pay-line game with a theme based on the Nordic mythology of the Valkyries, warrior maidens who escort dead heroes to the hall of the Gods at Valhalla.

The quality graphics in the game depict misty mountains, fjords and Viking longboats, Nordic runes, Thor’s hammer mjolnir, helmets and other typically Viking symbols and weapons.

There are three mini-games within the main game, Call of the Valkyries, March of the Valkyries, and Touch of the Valkyries, along with a range of other features that includes Wilds, Stacked Wilds, Frozen Wilds, Scatters, Multipliers, Free Spins, Re-spins and Bonus opportunities.

Look out for the random Touch of the Valkyries feature, where a lightning bolt strikes the reel set, converting one or more Warrior symbols into a wild and then re-evaluating on-screen symbols for the potential to claim further reward.

The game was developed in Playtech’s Sunfox Games studio, is accessible on desktop and mobile and has a claimed RTP of 96.53.

New Online Slot From Greentube

Back to the beer with Stein Haus

The latest online slot from Novomatic subsidiary Greentube has a distinctly German Bauhaus theme with comely waitresses, plenty of the liquid gold in large steins and foot tapping oompah music.

Titled Stein Haus, the game has a 5 reel, 50 pay-line format and range of features that includes Wilds, Moving Wilds, Free Spins, a Gamble feature, Multipliers and a Bonus round.

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.
