Update: Both Oink Country Love and EmotiCoins slots are ready for you to play at Casumo mobile casino »
We get two new Microgaming slots in August 2017! Which will win your heart? Will we LOL with Emoticoins slot? Or get down and dirty with Oink Country Love?
With the big Blockbuster Jurassic World slot game out in July, it’s back to normal in the Microgaming office as they release two new cartoony slots in August.
That’s not to say they won’t be good.
If July 2017 was any judge, you can still expect a few surprises from Microgaming. After all, their Six Acrobats game got better reviews than the dinosaur behemoth.
So what surprises are in store for us in August? And will we OMG! all over our cowboy hats? Let’s find out.
We start with the game that looks the most fun, but will probably be the least interesting.
It’s a lively affair as Willy and Chango, the piggy banjo and fiddle players, try and win the heart of sweet country pig, Miss Southern Charm.
The whole farm is charmed by the musical duo, who just want to dance and have a good time.
But at what cost?
We much prefer the theme of this Oink Country love slot game, than we do the EmotiCoins.
There’s something fun about playing on reels where crazy barnyard antics make everything a little but fun.
The problem we foresee isn’t the fact that the top win is only 570 times your bet. You expect that from a lower variance slot machine.
The problem is that there’s not much going on.
Basically, in the base game, you are expected to be excited about having 2 wild symbols.
Which is cool. We like extra wilds. But not sure it’s worthy of shouting about it.
And then free spins… well, the big sell is that because the scatters come stacked, you’ll get more free spins – up to 80.
But come on. Hands up anyone here who has been promised ‘Infinite free spins!’ like in the Man of Steel slot, but actually got the more standard 10 to 20 spins.
5 to 10 free spins will be more likely.
We belong to the generation where using emoticons has become second nature.
And even we aren’t that enthused about this fairly ‘meh’ theme.
However, is it coincidence that Microgaming have released a slot based on everyones favourite internet emotions, only weeks before NetEnt’s Emoji Planet slot is due out?
About as much of a coincidence as NetEnt releasing a Phantom of The Opera slot in the same year as Microgaming signing a deal to make the Phantom of The Opera film slot.
For one, the payout rate is better, there’s less paylines (which we prefer) and the betting range is wider.
The max win isn’t that much higher than with Oink Country Love, as the max bet is higher, but with a slightly higher volatility, you are likely to see bigger wins.
And then there’s the fact that we are suckers for some sticky wild free spin action.
So we might be a little biased, but we love it when those wilds stay on screen spin after spin.
Whether it’s the cool Ice Cave slot wilds that add up till the hammer breaks them, or the traditional sticky wilds that last throughout the free spin bonus games… it’s a feature that works.

Mostly because it allows you to get easier 4 and 5 of a kind wins, multiple times.
If Microgaming don’t mess this up too badly, EmotiCoins slot machine could be better than the Emoji Planet slot, which looks like it’s trying to do too much.
Maybe. We won’t gamble on it, but maybe.
These are not due to come out till the first week of August – you’ll start seeing them at online casinos on mobile around the 2nd or 3rd of the month.
We know it’s a long time till then, so why have we got you all excited for slot machines that aren’t out yet?
Because part of the fun is the anticipation of it all.
However, if you are more of an ‘I want instant gratification’ kinda guy/gal, then worry not.
Whilst you wait patiently for these new Microgaming phone slots, you can choose from over 59 different software casino game studios.
Because Video Slots casino has them all, from WMS, to NetEnt, to Merkur and so many more.
Plus, with 11 free spins no deposit on registration, you can check them out without committing any of your cash.Start Playing at Videoslots »
