1/25/10 – From http://www.recentpoker.com. The Isle of Man-based online gambling software provider Microgaming has launched another three new bingo side games, designed to provide bingo players with diverse outer-screen action to complement the main bingo gaming activity.
Neill Whyte, head of bingo operations at Microgaming said: “January’s new bingo side games are designed to cater to an increasingly diverse bingo community and provide players with an enhanced gaming experience and increased chances to win. Microgaming has a reputation for gaming innovation and we recognise the growing importance of side games as a valuable retention tool in an increasingly competitive market.”
First of the new games is Elementals, a 5 reel, 20 pay line video slot featuring a wild symbol, a scatter symbol and a gamble feature. The slot has high quality graphics depicting the elements that form the theme – earth, air, fire and water, with symbols depicting characters representing the four elements, along with fruit, a wild, a scatter, and the elemental symbol itself signifying lucky free spins. With a maximum jackpot of 100 000 coins, this game is an attractive proposition for players of all levels.
Joining the side games inventory is Classic Blackjack Gold from the prestigious Microgaming Gold series of games, features superior graphics, smooth and speedy action and top sound quality. The realistic game play and rich options enhance the gaming experience for players and give the game a real casino ambience. Classic Blackjack Gold uses only one 52 card deck and the object is to beat the dealer. The dealer stands on all 17's and players can double down on 9, 10 or 11.
Scratch ‘N’ Spin is a traditional pub style slot, with nudge and hold functionality and a feature game. This slot also features a Lucky Shopper newsagent feature, which can be accessed from a spin of the reels which can reward up to 500 coins.
