By our count, Microgaming casinos will be getting 5 new slot games and 1 mobile blackjack this February. Though only 3 can truly be said to be new, and 3 are old made new.
Yeap, that’s right, there’s 6 Microgaming casino games getting revamped, three of which will be mobile.
That said, one of these three is their Vegas Single Deck Blackjack Gold Series for mobile and tablets, but as our name is ‘Lucky Mobile SLOTS’, we are going to simply mention it up here, but assume you’re here to read about spinning reels and not decks of cards.
The next we will quickly removed from our list is the Loaded slot machine. Which apparently, according to Microgaming, is being released in HD and getting a new modern look this Feb. Which is nice and all, but hardly exciting.
Loaded is either a favourite of yours, or not. Either way, it will change little from the mobile phone slot game version, which has already been modernised.
And then, there was four. We’ll start with the mobile one, because hey, thats our thing.
All games will be at a good Microgaming casinos near you on the first week of February 2015.
Yippee! We get a brand new 243 ways to win slot to be released on both desktop and mobile casinos at the same time.
We don’t care it’s about cricket, the most un-exciting theme in history next to April 12th 1954, calculated as the most boring day ever.
Still, it’s worth putting up a video so you can see what to expect, because despite the theme, there could be some interesting wins here.
Ok, so we are not fans of this particular sport, and it wasn’t until they told us that 2015 was the year of the cricket world cup that we suddenly got the connection.
So it was always gonna be a hard sell for us. Still, we know many enthusiasts of cricket who will be bowled over by finally getting a game to spotlight their favourite sport.
10 spins when you register, and then four deposit bonuses to keep you playing at Mr Green.
And there are some interesting features that have big win potential. The slots wild symbol seems to come stacked in the base game, and you can randomly trigger the wild wicket feature to give additional wild reels, which is always a great way to lead to some major wins.
Add that you get collapsing reels and a multiplier trail of up to 10x for each successful win on the 25 free spins bonus feature, and we can certainly see the potential.
If we can get over the, you know, cricket theme. Read our full Cricket Star slot review »
With Valentines day around the corner, it was inevitable that Microgaming would give us something to mark the occasion. Last year we got the surprisingly good Starlight Kiss video slot.
This year we get a far older and far more dated game, in the form of Secret admirer, with symbols straight out of a bad 1980’s Mills & Boon novel.
If there is one thing we’ve learnt, it’s never underestimate the power of old 9 paylines Microgaming slots, with some of our favourites including the wonderful Thunderstruck or Agent Jane Blonde.
And it has some similarities with these two. For one, it looks very much like it’s a medium volatility slot, and for two, it’s all about catching the free spin offer.
Whilst playing it online, in preparation for the mobile release, we got a brilliant 250x our bet win, all thanks to the innovative ‘sticky scatters’.
Here’s an underdog that might yet surprise you.
This is the one slot we’ve got the least amount of information about.
But we know that it’s for Chinese New Year, so no doubt it will have a certain Choy Sun Doa feel about it, only with that Microgaming design touch that will make it look a little more stylish.
“For February, we’re delivering games with perfectly timed themes. The romance and glamour of Hollywood to coincide with Valentine’s, Lucky Firecracker to celebrate the Chinese New Year and a fantastic cricket themed game as cricket takes centre stage on the world’s sporting calendar. There’s something for everyone!” Mike Hebden, Head of Casino Games at Microgaming, commenting on the choice of releases.
15 free spins on Avalon + 200% on your first deposit at Go Wild Casino
Framed in gold, with traditional Chinese symbols on the reels, the glowing paper lanterns, bright fireworks and sparklers will keep you company as you spin the Lucky Firecracker machine.
With 243 ways to win, you’ll get wild symbols on only reel two and four of the base game. We hope these wilds are worth it for them to be so very restricted.
Thank-fully the free spins will no doubt save the day, as three scatters will give you 15 re-trigerable bonus games with a 3x multiplier.
If we are going to be honest, this sounds like the least interesting of the four.
Time to head to watch the talking movie, when dames were real dames, and men knew how to smoke and drink whiskey straight. The look and style reminded us a little of the Riviera Riches slot.
We’ve got another video for you, because we are nothing if not helpful.
We won’t lie, the Golden Era online slot looks fairly low variance, and the wins here are probably more slow and steady than huge.
But then, isn’t that what the golden era of cinema was all about? Lots of entertainment and value for money, with new pictures coming out weekly? Or will it be a B-movie badly produced movie monster?
We like the fact that when you get the three scatters you can choose to either play 12 free spins, with two expanded wild reels coming progressively closer to each other (our bet as to where the big wins could be hiding) and an click me instant win feature.
The jury is still out on this one, but with that old time appeal and interesting free spins, we can certainly see ourselves being entertained.
Why not wait for these games to come out by playing an exclusive 15 free spins on Avalon at Go Wild casino?
Or, if you’re in the UK and can’t play there (no licence), we recommend Guts who have multiple software and always release the newest games as soon as they are available.
