Casino software industry legend Microgaming has announced the slot games that it plans to launch in May 2017. The Isle of Man-based developer seems to be working hard to live up to its reputation.
The upcoming titles are diverse enough to appeal to most players, and come full of special features. They include Candy Dreams, Forbidden Throne, Fortune Girl and Goldwyn’s Fairies. Each game will be optimised for mobile, and can be enjoyed on iPhone, iPad and other popular hand held devices.
Candy Dream has, as you might imagine, sweets at the centre of its theme. Different candies dot the 5 reels, but the most exciting thing about this slot game is not the motif; it’s the payline structure. Rather than set paylines Candy Dreams features Microgaming’s innovative 720 ways to win scheme. The game also features Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins and a pick’em style bonus round titled Candy Planet.
Forbidden Throne features 40 paylines over 5 reels, and is set in a fantasy world. The impressive graphics are equalled by the wide range of special features; including Stacked Wilds, Scatter symbols, Free Spin rounds, standard Wilds and more. Soaring background music completes the game’s epic feel.
With an unusual manga theme, Fortune Girl feels fun and refreshingly different. The action plays out over 5 reels and 15 paylines, set against a treasure trove background. The game logo and all messages are presented in a manga-like font, on a yellow and pink background, and you’ll also see the eponymous Fortune Girl blowing kisses and looking cute. Icons on the reels include the doors to the treasure trove and its contents, as well as beautiful written symbols.
There are 20 paylines over 5 reels in Goldwyn’s Fairies, and a betting range of 0.10 to 250. The theme is a kind of magical forest, with the 4 main symbols being fairies that each represents a different season. Special features include Wilds, Scatters and Free Spins, which can be retriggered and which launches various activities from within the round.
Goldwyn’s Fairies is the first of Microgaming’s collaborations with Just for the Win gaming studio in Sweden, and it’s their first game too. Microgaming spokesperson David Reynolds noted that the beautiful design, gripping base game and free spin features would enchant players.
These 4 phenomenal desktop and mobile releases are set to go live during May and are proof once again that Microgaming just keeps racking up great games that add to their already extensive portfolio.
