As usual, Microgaming was the company with the first new slot releases of the year, but by far not the last. There are quite a few great video slot machines scheduled to be released in the first few weeks of the year – ahead of ICE Totally Gaming, the biggest event of the European online gambling industry. Play’n Go and Yggdrasil Gaming are both preparing new titles to hit the market soon.
Swedish developer Yggdrasil Gaming is preparing a new reactor-style video slot machine, called Incinerator, for release. The game was showcased in a demo video at androidslots.co.uk this week, and it looks like it could be a major hit at casinos. The game has five reels, three rows and 20 win lines, and all the things a modern slot machine needs. Except maybe for a bonus round. The game will see symbols fall in from above to form winning combinations. Any such combination will be incinerated – eliminated from the screen, allowing others to fall into their place.
What makes the game interesting is its Wild Patterns feature. An indicator on the left shows how many cascaded wins a player needs until a pattern of Wild symbols will land on the screen. When the counter reaches zero, Wilds forming the pattern shown on the left will be applied to the play area, likely to be triggering more massive wins.
The game is scheduled to be released on January 21st.
Play’n Go’s latest video slot machine, expected to be launched on the 14th of January, will be one with the classic Ancient Egyptian theme. The game will have five reels, 3 rows and 10 win lines, and will be packed with features – like special expanding symbols and scattered wins. The game will feature adventurer Rich Wilde (a suggestive name, I guess) exploring the treasures of Egypt in this new game, which will look and feel, well, just like an Ancient Egypt inspired modern video slot machine.
