New Slots! — Weekly Round-up for April 14, 2017

New Quickspin Slot Celebrates Japanese Culture

Sakura Fortune launches April 11.

The latest online slot from Swedish games developer Quickspin, Sakura Fortune has a distinctly Japanese theme in which a beautiful princess battles the forces of evil on a journey through an enchanted world of cherry blossom trees and golden dragons seeking wealth and fortune.

The game is a 5 reel, 40 pay-line offering that includes respins, free spins and a mystery nudge feature, along with Quickspin’s newly introduced Achievements Engine, which generates tasks for players to complete within the game in return for tokens that can be cashed-in to gain access to the game feature (see previous InfoPowa reports).

Due for release next week on April 11, much of the action in this high variance slot (the claimed RTP is 96.56 percent) emanates from the central princess character, which acts as the wild feature and anables the multiplier achievement of up to 1,087x bet. Two or more princess symbols can be nudged into a full stack, and enough of those gets the respin going with the number of spins dependent on the number of princess wilds on the reels.

The Scatter feature delivers more free spin opportunities, with wilds expanding when hit.

Latest IGT Online Slot Features Iconic Motor Cycle

Harley Davidson Freedom Ride gets slot fans’ motors running….but the RTP is not among the best.

International Game Technology’s Harley Davidson Freedom Tour motor cycle-themed slot is an imaginative idea based on the huge popularity of the land-based version several years ago, but the claimed 92 percent RTP in the online version is not among the best in the business.

This new 5 reel 30 pay-line level-up game celebrates the freedom and independence associated with motor cycle riding (thanks to astute marketing) and comes in desktop format with interesting features that include a randomly triggered Rumbling Wilds mystery element in which all 4 symbols can become wild.

Then there’s the Road to Riches bonus feature boosted by an up to 5x multiplier which can be beefed up with a multiplier up to 5x all the way up to 1,000x stake, along with three other bonuses that offer a pick me game with 5x multipliers, up to 400 times your stake for the achievement of a gold bike level and three free spins with 3 extra wilds on the player’s final free spin.

The theme is amply illustrated with leather Harley clothing, helmets, and of course the big bikes and the manufacturer’s iconic logo, which is the most rewarding symbol on the reels, delivering multipliers of up to 50x stake and functioning as a wild.

The level-up feature “borrowed” from social gaming offerings enables players to progress through 6 different levels, each with enhanced bonus opportunities, one of which is a wheel where rewards of up to 200x bet are achievable. In another, engine rpm rewards can deliver up to 5x multipliers.

Players earn miles, which allow them to advance on the Freedom Tour map by 1 mile for every 10 miles awarded in the game, which offers the player a diversity of reward opportunities and lots of interactive entertainment in a low to medium variance environment.

Nolimit City Launch Kitchen Drama Sushi Mania

First of a Kitchen-themed series.

Stockholm-headquartered online casino platform and game developer Nolimit City has launched its fourth game, Kitchen Drama Sushi Mania, and its first video slot with collapsing reels with accumulated wins featuring a new free spin trigger type, where all in-game features aid players to win the free spins feature.

The five reel, three row and 20 betline slot is a Japanese cuisine themed slot offering features like Kamisabi Second chance, Bunshin Wilds and the Wild Sushi Free Spins.

New Slot From Habanero

Supplier’s new HTML5 title features a magical eagle

Online gambling games developer Habanero launched its latest HTML5 title, Bird of Thunder, Monday.

The 5×3, 30 pay-lines fixed slot has a theme based on a mythical North American eagle with magical powers. Once three Totems are hit, 10 initial free games are awarded, with each Bird of Thunder wild symbol replicating for additional action on the reels.

Birds are released from their initial positions during free spins and fly across the screen before striking.

Habanero spokesperson Toni Karapetrov, said in a statement Monday that the new game is rendered in high definition graphics and is backed by an appropriate soundtrack.

“In Native American culture, eagles are considered to possess magical powers and we hope it will spur our players to hit the heights,” she said.

Habanero is scheduled to release ten new titles during 2017, the company’s statement reveals. The developer already has 70 video slots titles, six table games, and 10 video poker titles, which are integrated into over 35 operators and aggregators and are available in 20 languages.

Two animated mermaids accompany players as they journey through deep water looking for treasure in the ocean-themed “Sirenas de la Suerte”, a three-reel video slot offering interesting features such as Wilds, Holds, Nudges and four bonus side games on an upper set of reels.

“It’s one of our most promising games,” José Antonio Giacomelli, director of new technologies division at Grupo MGA said. “Sirenas de la Suerte” is the product of our development team’s deep experience”.

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.
