Friday, September 25th, 2015 by LuckyMobileSlots

We've got the list folks! Microgaming will be releasing a number of new online slots in October 2015... and only one is mobile.

Well, we had a good run didn’t we?

We got the Rugby Star slot on both mobile and online in September, and the blockbuster Bridesmaids game made its debut on all screens in August.

Now that Autumn is upon us, Microgaming is back to releasing their brightest games online, and giving us mobile players old, but still pretty good, slot games to play on our phones and tablets.

So don’t cry for us, instead let’s look at 4 very different new online slots from Microgaming coming in the first week of October 2015.

The Golden Era Mobile Slot

Well, we were going to start with the one that will be mobile, right? How could we not? ‘‘ is in our title.

Technically, the Golden Era slot machine isn’t that old. It was released at desktop casinos online back in February 2015, so look at it as… an 8 month delay to getting it as a mobile slot game?

What is this video slot like?

This 15 payline slot is vintage Hollywood all the way, from cinema stubs, to big flash paparazzi, and a blonde starlet, you are taken somewhere between the 1920s and 1930s of the movie era.

You’ve got two bonus games to pick from when you get 3 or more scatters.

The first is the free spins bonus, with two expanded movie star wilds that move across the screen, to eventually merge in the center for a passionate embrace.

The second is a click me bonus, where you pick from up to 10 movie posters for instant cash prizes.

Which give you the biggest possible wins? Why the free spins of course.

Are we excited for the Golden Era slot?

Honestly… kinda?

We’d totally forgotten about it, and it wasn’t until we started playing it online to remember what the fuss was about that we realised that it’s a fairly well balanced machine.

You’re budget can last you, if you’re careful, and the free spins give you the possibility for some awesome wins.

We’d hoped for something new, but a vintage, solid, Microgaming slot game will do.

The really exciting new slot releases: Theia and Hyperion

There’s a running joke in the gambling industry that if you want one game, but with multiple themes, call Microgaming.

They are, undoubtedly, masters of the “lets release an old game but with a new coat of paint, as new”.

Microgaming would no doubt respond that, if players love a slot, why not create different themes that might appeal to different players?

Which is fair enough, but someone in their office has a sense of humour as the two new online slots coming out in October are two almost identical games with almost identical themes.

It’s like they’re not even trying anymore.

Don’t underestimate the cleverness of Microgaming

At first glance, both games pretty much look the same. Here’s a video to give you a glimpse of the style:

The one above is Titans of the Sun – Theia. You can also watch the Titans of the Sun – Hyperion slot video on YouTube here.

If you can be bothered to watch both videos (hey, we had to!), you’ll end up scratching your end and going – what’s the freaking difference?!? They are exactly the same, except for the main character.

Both have mystery stacked wild symbols, both have 15 free spins, both have wilds.

What the…?

Both have huge in game jackpots!

The reason we are excited for these Titans to join the ranks of Microgaming casino slots is because this software has promised some very high variance spins.

What does that mean?

It means you’ll have to watch your wallet, as these ancient gods will swallow your money like it’s a sacrifice to king Midas.

It also means that, should they look upon you favourably, they will reward you with some of the biggest wins you’ll see in a slot game.

Who is better? Theia or Hyperion?

At first glance you think it’s Theia. Because you’ll see that she has a 2x multiplier on her free spins, whilst Hyperion does not.

And you’d be right.

Because the mystery symbols in Hyperion only come 5 stacked high across all the game, whilst this golden goddess increases that to 6 high stacked mystery symbols in the base game, and 5, 6 or 7 high in the free spins.

She also has the largest overall possible win. With her you can win 8,000 times your bet in the free spins, whilst with him “only” 5,000 times your bet.

Still, we suspect Hyperion will be more playable

How can we say that? Because, looking at the numbers, Theia is all about the free spins. If she doesn’t give them to you, you’ll end up burnt to a crisp in her inferno of spins.

With Hyperion, on the other hand, you can generally win more in the base game and on a single payline.

It means, he’ll be a little friendlier on your wallet.

We suppose it depends on who you want to worship. Both are dangerous, but one might answer your prayers a little more often than the other.

Where can I play all these Microgaming games?

Good Microgaming casinos are not difficult to find.

Go Wild casino give you 30 free spins no deposit on Avalon and a huge first deposit bonus, which is always welcomed when playing these dangerous machines.

However, for those of you who prefer variety, we’d say that Guts casino is probably a favourite, as they also host NetEnt, Play’n GO, NextGen and many other software providers on their books.

Variety is the spice of life, as they say.

And variety, with £€$300 in bonuses and 100 free spins (no wagering requirements!), doesn’t come much better.
