12/12/09 – The latest news games release package from Cryptologic arrives as a Christmas bonanza, containing the major 50 pay-line video slot Superman and four other slots, together with three new table games.
Continuing the movie hero series is Braveheart, in which Mel Gibson immortalised Scots freedom fighter William Wallace. Some of those great scenes are included in this impressive slot at the intro and in the free spins elements. The Battle Free Games Feature also depicts the struggle between Braveheart and King ‘Longshanks' Edward of England, with the player scoring if the Scots hero wins.
Braveheart has a five level progressive jackpot that is randomly triggered named rather off-topic Hollywood Jackpots and the five levels are Smash, Epic, Classic, Acclaimed and Blockbuster.
Forrest Gump as played by Tom Hanks became a cult figure following the release of the movie of the same name some years ago, and he is back in a 25 pay-line video slot that is like a box of chocolates – full of surprises and prizes and networked to the Hollywood progressive jackpots. There are two bonus games – the Box of Chocolates feature and a Run Forrest Run game that entertainingly simulates Gump's dash through a football field in the film, with an interactive element that enables players to help Gump manoeuvre around his opponents.
Just Vegas is the second in Crypto's All Pays slot game series, where all wins pay in any position from left to right on adjacent reels, beginning on the left. The symbols and animations depict the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas, and give the player a choice of three casinos, Asian, Egyptian and Roman – each with a different package of free spins.
A Japanese game show provides the theme for Fumi's Fortune, with hosts Fumi and Aki introducing the fun and whacky symbols and animations.
The new table games are Blackjack Perfect Pairs, Sic Bo VIP and Double Double Bonus Video Poker.
Perfect Pairs Blackjack is very similar to the AC and Vegas BJ variants in the current casino suite with some small changes. There is an optional side-bet based on the player's first two cards and the popular surrender option is included.
Sic Bo Macau features the popular Chinese game that has its origins in ancient Chinese gambling and is very popular in casinos around the world. Players have the opportunity to place many types of wagers on the outcome of each round which consists of rolling three, six-sided dice. Bets are placed on individual dice, combinations of dice, and the totals of the three dice combined.
