October was a pretty busy month for the good people of Microgaming. There are plenty of new titles in their catalogue released in the previous month. Players will have a fun trip to Africa. Straight after the African safari, we will visit the jungles. Our next stop will be the Wild West, where we will go on a quest for gold.
It is only normal that, after discovering vast gold and other riches, that a group of Wanted Outlaws appears from somewhere, trying to snatch our wealth. Anyway, lots of action is waiting for all games in the upcoming cold winter days.
African Legends is a five-reel video slot that offers 243 ways to win. Playable from $0.25 per spin, the 2020 release is done in cooperation with Slingshot Studios. The visually impressive game is taking us on a safari. Instead of hunting for animals, we will be hunting for the Wow Major Jackpot.
The Rolling Reels feature will remove winning symbols and add new icons on the reels. Land 8 consecutive rolls and you will pocket the progressive Wow Major Jackpot. Rolling Reels also come with an increasing win multiplier, which gets bigger after each successive roll. Rolls also trigger the Free Spins feature. Land from four to seven successive rolls and you get from 12 to 20 free spins with win multipliers up to 10x.
Finally, we have the Wild Blast feature, where players get up to 5 Wilds on random positions on a random spin. The Wild Blast feature cannot occur during the Rolling Reels feature. To win payouts, players need to land matching symbols on at least three successive reels, beginning from the leftmost reel.
The lord of the jungle is waiting for you in Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar, a five-reel, three-row video slot that benefits from 20 fixed paylines, which pay left to right. The Jewel is the Scatter that triggers the Jackpot feature, Land three or more Jewel Scatters on the reels, and you will win up to 5,000x bet instantly.
The 2020 release is coming straight from Gameburger Studios. Tarzan is the highest-paying regular symbol, but will also appear during gameplay to add up to 15 Wilds on the reels. This is the Random Wilds feature, during which Tarzan will swing and add Wilds on random positions.
Land three Scatters on the reels to trigger the Free Spins Wheel feature. Spin the Wheel to get up to 30 free spins. Another Wheel is there for you, and it determines the win multiplier during the feature. It can be as big as 10x.
Once you collect all of the jewels in the jungle, you can continue to experience an adventure in the Wild West. Saddle up your horses and enjoy the frontier, since you will be looking for Western Gold. Just For The Win and Microgaming joined forces to develop a five-reel, 40-payline video slot that offers a maximum win of 10,000x bet per spin.
As the sun burns your skin and the hot sand burns your shoes, you will be spinning the reels of the 2020 release for a starting price of $0.20 per spin. Land at least three matching icons on a payline, beginning from the leftmost reel, and you will start winning payouts. Wilds and Lucky Sevens are the only two icons that pay even for two of a kind.
In the Cash Prize feature, players need to land Horseshoe Scatters to win instant rewards. Four or more Horseshoes on the reels deliver instant wins. Players can win up to 10,000x bet if they get 12 Horseshoes on the reels at the same time. Three Sherriff Badges will trigger the Free Spins feature. Three freebies will be yours, and you also need to collect Scatters during free spins to get more free spins. Collect 12 Scatters and you can also win 10,000x bet.
If you do not succeed in collecting all the treasures and gold offered in the previous three video slots, you can always join a gang of Wanted Outlaws, a five-reel, five-row video slot that benefits from 3,125 ways to win, also known as Nobleways. With three of a kind being the minimum for landing payouts, the slot pays left to right, starting from the leftmost reel. The reels are set in what seems to be an abandoned town in the West. Players can win up to 2,500x stake in a single spin.
The Sherriff is the Wild and will appear only during the Free Spins feature. Look for the Sherriff’s Badge, since three or more of them can trigger from 10 to 25 free spins, depending on the number of Scatters landed. The Wanted Posters feature is also available during free spins. Wanted Posters will appear on the reels and will carry a certain multiplier. If the Sherriff Wild appears on the same spin, the multipliers will be collected.
Pulse 8 and Microgaming present 777 Royal Wheel, a five-reel video slot that offers 25 fixed paylines. Playable from $0.25 per spin, the 2020 release offers a maximum possible win of $235,000. Every winning spin will get you a free respin. Winning icons will be locked in their positions, while other reels perform a respin. If more symbols are added to the winning combination, players get an extra respin, Respins end when there are no more new icons added to the winning combo.
The Wild Wheel feature is triggered randomly on any spin. The Wheel spins and selects one of the symbols, which is then turned Wild and remains Wild until the spin session ends. Wilds can come with multipliers that are applied on wins if the Wild is part of the winning combo.
Aquatic Treasures is arriving straight from Gold Coin Studios’ creative kitchen. This underwater adventure comes with five reels, three rows and 20 paylines. The 2020 release comes with an Expanding Dolphin Wild, which appears only on the three central reels. The Pearl Scatter triggers 8 free spins. Finally, there is an option to Double Up your wins after every winning spin with a coin toss game.
Finally, we have the Fluffy Favourites from Eyecon, which saw the light of day in October 2020. It will probably be the polished version of the 2016 release, but we will have to wait a little bit longer before we can really see what the game will be about.
