2/23/10 – Online gambling software developer Microgaming has released a further five titles in its online bingo side games series, designed to keep players interested and entertained on MGS-powered bingo sites.
The latest games package includes a combination of casino, table and pub-style fruit machine games, each carried by quality graphics, and new and fresh content to provide player communities with absorbing outer-screen action.
HELLBOY features big heroes, big monsters and even bigger rewards. This 5 reel, 20 payline video slot is the latest example of the top quality branded content that has become so popular with Internet players. Based on the popular comic book hero, the game features five high paying symbols depicted by other amazing characters.
Hellboy also features the popular SuperMode Bonus, with up to three held wilds, which are randomly triggered. Three or more scatter symbols landing anywhere on the reels triggers a generous four level bonus feature, where the player chooses a tunnel to gain bonus rewards and advance to the next level. The player however, must avoid collapsing tunnels as this will end the bonus.
Players may further double or quadruple their winnings by predicting the right colour and suit in a gamble feature.
AGE OF DISCOVERY is a 5 reel, 25 payline video slot featuring wild and scatter symbols, along with a bonus feature. The themes of exploration, adventure and mystery pervade the game-play, as players are transported back in time to join explorers who sailed across the uncharted oceans, using only the stars and rudimentary maps as their guide.
This holds generous treasures for intrepid players; find three, four or five scattered symbols and the adventure really begins in the form of a bonus game. To top off this maritime mayhem, there is even more treasure in the form of a wild feature bound to a player’s collection of coins.
DOGFATHER is a 5 reel video slot with a mean Mafia dog theme. The game comprises two scatters and a wild symbol, which substitutes for all others except the scatters. A range of tough hounds feature as the symbols, along with hydrants, fleas and mutt mafia memorabilia.
Three or more flea symbols scattered on the reels will trigger 13 re-triggering free spins, during which all wins are tripled. Three, four or five hydrants scattered on any reel in any position will trigger the Mark your Territory Bonus, where you can pick four fire hydrants to reveal awesome prizes. Find out which hydrants will be lucky for you and win big with this fun packed canine caper.
THOR BLIMEY! is a 3 reel, 5 win-line fruit pub style machine with all the features, fun and payouts a player could want, as well as a turbo gamble option. The theme is based around burly bearded vikings and the symbols feature thunderous hammers, Nordic maidens, longboats and flagons of ale. The game also features the well known nudge variants of gamble and repeat and nudge bank holds.
PREMIER BLACKJACK offers players a choice of tables, rules, cards and play speeds that puts them in total control, and also comes with AutoPlay and configurable strategy tips.
With eight different table colours available and four rule sets, there are a total of 32 tables to choose from. Players can play the way they’re used to on the multi hand blackjack tables, place bonus bets on the multi hand bonus blackjack tables, go for multiple wins on the high streak tables or bet high or low on the Hi-Lo blackjack tables.
Neill Whyte, head of bingo activities at Microgaming said: “It’s not only ‘eyes down’ in the world of Bingo, but increasingly ‘eyes to the side’, with bingo side games fast becoming an integral part of UK online bingo sites.
"Players within our operator network relish the playability and winabilty of the sophisticated side games that we provide, rendering their favourite bingo sites complete one stop shops for fun, entertainment and reward.”
