Microgaming does not cease to amaze us. Despite what the world has been going through since 2020, the company kept its commitment—it released several games that we can feast on now.
What we are going to do today is to give you a glimpse of the new Microgaming slots. Some of them are now live in your favorite online casinos, while some are still offered as free slots in demo mode.
Thunderstruck Wild Lightning
The target release for this slot is July 27th. Thunderstruck Wild Lightning is a 5×3 grid slot machine based on Norse mythology. The company made this game in cooperation with Stormcraft Studios.
Players should look forward to a high probability of winning in any of the 40 pay lines. There are also several features that would surely spice up your game. Here are some examples:
- Wild multipliers – these are wild symbols that substitute for non-special symbols to give you a winning combination. The multiplier will only be applied if the wild is in a winning line.
- Free spins – get free spins after filling up a meter called Wild Storm. This meter gets filled up every time you land three symbols of Thor’s hammer.
The game has several free spin options to choose from (between 6 and 15 free spins). The more free spins you choose, the less wild multiplier values you get. For example, if you choose 12 free spins, the multipliers are only valued at 2x – 6x. However, choose 6 free spins and you can get multipliers between 5x and 12x.
Lastly, the game offers expanding wild reels. This happens randomly, and the wild stack will also carry a multiplier, which will be applied to the winning line, provided that the wild was used.
9 Blazing Diamonds
Those who love classic slot machines will have a feast by the time this gets released on the 29th of July. This slot also has a feature called Wow Pot.
Unlike many classic slots, this one sits on a 5×3 grid. You will be spinning symbols of diamonds, bells, dollar signs, and cherries.
It also has a feature called Blazing Spins where you spin a special wheel. This wheel awards multipliers and free spins. The maximum prize possible during the free spin round is 10,000x.
The game has four jackpots—Mini, Minor, Major, and the Wow Pot. You can win any of these during the Blazing Spins round. If you are lucky, you can win the Wow Pot, which is a shared pot that has historically paid more than €17 million already.
The jackpot prizes are progressive. This means that each machine takes a chunk of a bet and then puts that in the jackpot. If any player from around the world wins any of these four jackpots, the specific jackpot resets to zero. The key to this game is the spinning wheel. This is the only way you could win either the free spins bonus or any of the four jackpot prizes.
Royal League Neptune’s Harem
Coming on the 26th, Microgaming worked with Gong Gaming Technologies on this one. The game fulfills basic expectations of players such as free spins and multipliers.
What players would love in the game is that it takes only two bonus symbols to appear to trigger the free spin round. In this round, the player is offered four cards that have free spins count. After choosing a card, the player has to choose from another set of four cards, this time picking multiplier values. The maximum multiplier value is 10x.
The Royal League Jackpot is something new. If you trigger this jackpot round, you have to roll the dice, both of which are linked to a board of squares. These jackpots are not progressive but rather based on multiplier values that you get from the dice-rolling round.
Legacy of Oz
This is a 5×3 slot machine that is heavily based on the Wizard of Oz book. It has a wild and scatters feature that could augment your winning chances. Here is the feature summary:
- Scatter – a book that has the name Oz on it. Landing three of them anywhere on the grid grants eight free spins. Landing two or more of the same symbol during the free spin round adds more spins at no cost.
- Hyper Spin – this is a new concept where you can choose to spin individual reels but at a cost. Use this feature if you already have two same symbols lined up on the first and second reels.
Overall, this is a futuristic rendition of the old theme. The game has no jackpot, but it gives players the opportunity to win up to 5,000x. The free spins re-trigger is what the player has to look forward to, as this is what provides the most profit in the game.
There are other titles that we are anticipating this July, such as Coin Bash, Treasure Hacks, Elven Gold, and others. So far, these four are what we are looking forward to. Once they are live, we encourage you to check them out and test your luck.
