Microgaming are releasing 3 new slot games in April 2017, but there's no doubt in our minds that one stands out from the rest.
And the one that stands out isn’t, technically, even a Microgaming slot game.
The Castle Builder II game is created by Rabcat; it just so happens that Microgaming have an exclusive deal to license out their games, so you’ll only be able to play at Microgaming casinos.
However, let’s not jump to conclusions. Perhaps the other two slots will be worthy of this great software provider after all.
Lets take a look at each, and which you’ll be playing come April 2017.
And we are using the word retro in order not to be mean and say things like “outdated design” or “what the **** where they thinking”.
Not cool at all Microgaming.
And we forgive their poor graphics because, frankly, they pay out often and they are old games.
This Cool Bucks slot may not be old, but it looks like the payout potential could be good. Here’s some of the key features:
Those last two points are obviously the most interesting of the lot, as it implies decent wins overall.
But for now, we are sitting on the fence on this one. Only time will tell if the game play is fun enough to make us overlook at god awful theme.
Now this is unusual; we haven’t seen a Microgaming classic mobile slot in aaaages.
And, thank-fully, they redeem themselves a little bit with this Mega Money Multiplier online slot.
Sure, the theme isn’t particularly pretty, but it’s a classic slot machine; they are meant to be simple, uncomplicated, with big bold graphics.
If Cool Bucks was old fashioned in every way, this Mega Money Multiplier is a modern classic slot in every way.
With 2x, 3x, and 5x multipliers on the reels, which can multiply together to give you up to 10x multipliers on a win, there’s an air of excitement to every spin.
It won’t be for everyone one; classic mobile slots rarely are. But for those of us who like some simple game play, we suspect this will be worth the wait.
Meanwhile, why not reconnect with some great all-time Microgaming classic slots like Break Da Bank or Couch Potato?
Alright! Finally. You’ve been good boys and girls, and been patient, as we’ve gone through the standards games, all for the climax of what’s to come.
Some of you may be surprised by our excitement, seeing as you’ve probably read our original Castle Builder slot review, and know we weren’t that excited about it.
The reason for it is that is had some obvious flaws, namely:
What it wasn’t was a radical new concept that bridged the gap between social games and slots.
Enter Castle Builder II, Stage Left.
For one is promises to have far more exciting slot features; namely Expanding Wilds, Free Spins, Wild Symbols and Bonus Games.
So, already, it’s an improvement as they concentrate on giving you a great mobile phone slot experience.
But they might actually deliver on the whole ‘social gaming’ aspect as well, as Castle Builder 2 promises: “A massive Game World where players start by choosing one of three avatars, each with their own feature set and story line, and embark into 15 kingdoms with over 300 characters.”
The premise is still the same; build castles, help princesses match make with princes, win cash for doing so.
But there’s 100+ achievements to unlock with fantastic payout related awards. Meaning, the more you play, the more you can win.
Not going to lie. We probably won’t be that excited till April 19th comes round and we get our hands on the Castle Builder 2 game.
It does seem to be the biggest ‘world-progressing’ slot of it’s kind.
No doubt, it will be interesting to see how long it takes to complete all the levels, and whether the wins in the game will be worth the commitment and loyalty needed to complete it.
That said, it’s not the only one of it’s kind, and some may even say it’s a little late in the game.
IGT have made some amazing breakthroughs in the genre of unlockable features, with Cleopatra Plus slot being the ultimate game of its kind.
But, of course, if we want to go back to the source, the Immortal Romance slot game is by far still the best of its kind, though far simpler.
Still, worth re-exploring till Castle Builder II shows up, and both of which you’ll find at Casumo Casino where you get up to a huge £€1,200 welcome package in bonus money.Start Playing at Casumo »
