Gambling: Microgaming September New games
9/2/09 – The online gambling software developer Microgaming rounds off a busy summer this week with the addition of three new feature-rich themed video slots to its large and diverse portfolio, along with a brand new instalment in its popular Level-Up Video Poker series.
Flagship in the latest releases is SCOOP THE CASH, a game-show themed slot where rewards are the name of the game as players navigate their way through a wealth of prizes and taste the high life as they enter a millionaire’s playground, depicted by trappings of wealth and success such as cars, mansions and cashed-up tycoons in luxurious abundance.
The five reel, 25 payline, multi-featured slot format, offers players Multipliers a-plenty, re-triggering Free Spins, Wilds, two Scatters and a fat bonus to add that important element of excitement and entertainment as the game unfolds.
Take a voyage of discovery with JEWELS OF THE ORIENT. Players can dust off their magic carpets in preparation for a quest to discover the secrets of the exotic East with this entertaining slot. Full of eastern promise and mystery, this five reel, nine payline video slot takes players on a journey from the vast plains of India to the snow capped mountains of Japan. Brought to life by advanced scenic graphics, vibrant colours and populated with exotic characters, the game offers a glittering array of rewards in the form of gold, priceless gems and treasure casks.
With a host of player-enriching features that include Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins and Multipliers, Jewels of the Orient also offers a brilliant series of second screen bonus offers, the main one of which empowers the player with three different selections of treasure-bearers. On each appearance the player can choose one treasure cask which can deliver 40 Free Spins and a 5x multiplier to boost winnings.
Get those chainsaws purring with LUMBER CATS. Players can join a team of burly tree-felling felines at peak harvest season on a pine plantation in this light hearted new video slot. With vibrant graphics featuring a trio of axe-toting lumber cats, tree-tractors and logs, this treble featured, five reel 20 payline video slot creates player opportunities through a combination of traditional slot action, boosted by three winning features that offer prizes and free re-spins galore.
The Wild Cat feature helps players to build winning combinations, but the trees have scatter functionality and three or more across the reels triggers the main feature in the game, which is the highly competitive Tree Climb, in which picking the winning cat awards additional prizes. Capping the action, there’s a Gamble feature, where a player can double or quadruple winnings by predicting the right colour and suit.
The last of September’s releases is DOUBLE JOKER POKER, the latest edition of Microgaming’s very popular Multi-Level Power Poker series. Double Joker Poker Level-Up Poker is guaranteed to keep players busy as they climb a series of levels with increasing multiplier rewards for each victory.
The aim of the game is to secure a win and progress to the next level – the higher the player progresses, the more money they can win. To add to the excitement there is an extra Joker in each pack, but the news is even better for gamers as The Joker is ‘Wild’, enabling players to build winning combinations.
With a total of four levels, and the opportunity to win 8x the original bet, there are ample opportunities to win big with this clean, colourful new game.
