Microgaming is preparing to launch two new slot machines in the first days of 2016. New, but not unexpected – both titles were announced in the past, but never made it to online casinos.
One of them is Lucky Twins, an Asian themed video slot machine, the other is Peek a Boo, a much anticipated Halloween / Ghost themed video game. Both of them will be released in a few days’ time – at least this is what Microgaming’s official YouTube channel suggests.
Lucky Twins will be a five-reel, three row video slot machine with nine win lines. Its theme is based on the Chinese belief that twins are luckier than average siblings. The reels of the slot machine are filled with symbols related to luck, welfare and the upcoming Chinese new year – including Meneki Neko, the well known waving cat though to be a bringer of good fortune. The whole visual design, including the choice for colors, is tilted toward positive things to happen in the New Year – wealth, harmony and good luck. The game will come with achievements, “Mega Big Wins” and lots of gold, red and green, to bring good luck in the upcoming Year of the Monkey.
The second game to be launched by Microgaming in January has been announced for October, in time for Halloween, but – unfortunately – it has never made it to casinos. It’s a pity – its theme made it a perfect game for the sweetest slash scariest holiday of the year. Peek a Boo is a five reel, four row video slot machine with 40 win lines, with its reels filled with the two indispensable ingredients for Halloween – ghosts and candy.
40 win lines is valid for the base game only, though – during free spins, the game’s win lines will grow to 1024, ensuring lots of generous winning combinations. To trigger the free spins, the Kid symbol (a fearless ghost hunter) will have to zap enough colorful ghosts to fill a meter on the right. When the meter is full, 10 free spins are triggered.
