2/10/10 – For several weeks now online gambling information sites have been reporting the imminent arrival of several new games on the way to players from Microgaming, and this week the Isle of Man-based software provider confirmed the release of three new offerings for February.
The latest games include Winter Olympic thrills, sky high hot air ballooning entertainment and even the chance for some Valentines Day romance.
WINTER GOLD, is an online gambling salute to the Winter Olympic Games taking place this year in Vancouver. This new 5 reel, 15 payline video slot is based on the Winter Olympics due to start on 12 February and features Wild, Scatter, Free Spin and Multiplier rewards; along with a thoroughly entertaining second screen Bonus Wheel featuring the main Winter Olympic disciplines.
The Bonus Wheel round offers some really cool opportunities that include free spins and automatic payouts. Players can also participate in one of the four most exhilarating Winter Olympics events: speed skating, biathlon, bobsleighing, and ski jumping, and can win up to 24 000 credits in the bonus round.
The Gold Medal Scatter symbols have outstanding prize gathering potential, not only in triggering the main feature Bonus Wheel, but also in generating multiplier wins.
February is traditionally the month for romance and Microgaming’s new LOVE POTION slot is in keeping with the month of Valentines. Here, the rich graphics provide the romantic theme which includes cupids, pink roses, a carriage ride in the moonlight and star-crossed lovers from the 18th century.
The Love Potion logo is the wild and replaces any symbol, except the scatter and bonus. 10 free spins with a five times multiplier are up for grabs and players can win up to 100 times their bet.
The Love Potion bonus icon launches the Love Struck bonus round when it is hit twice or more. Here players must make a choice between six dashing noble men, each one holding a bonus. The more Love Struck bonus icons you hit, the more picks you get. Finally there is the ever popular gamble feature where you can double or quadruple your winnings.
The entertainment is sky high with HOT AIR, the latest high-flying 5 reel, 30 payline slot from Microgaming. The theme here is hot air ballooning, depicted with amusing cartoon style graphics featuring a jolly pilot and his colourful balloon; both of which give the player access to a range of free spin opportunities for reward.
The pilot symbol has a dual role in the game, serving as the wild to build winning combinations and triple prizes, and also delivering an extra hot spin if he appears in the free spin bonus cycle
When three or more balloons appear simultaneously, a reward of 10 free spins is triggered and all wins are doubled. But that's not all; a lucky player may trigger up to 50 hot spins with multipliers, which are played at the end of the free spin cycle. A gamble feature provides the final thrill, where players can double or quadruple their wins by correctly guessing the card suit and colour of the next card.
