Thursday August 4,2011 : First multi-screen and cascading slots enter company's proprietary games inventory
Gamesys’ new gaming development team have released two new games to the Jackpot Joy operational website, both online slots, branded “Jalapeño Racers” and "Jungle Jump".
The new games join an inventory of unique proprietary games developed by the company under its former production system that includes bingo variants like Family Fortunes Team Bingo Bonus and Monopoly Snap.
"Jalapeño Racers", released last month, is the company's first multi-screen slot allowing the player to spin with up to 80 lines while chasing a chilli-powered Bonus Round.
The Mexican-themed slot features Ringo, Basil, Barro and Walter – four fun loving creatures who love to eat Jalapeños. Landing four Race scatter symbols across any four of the slots will trigger the Race Feature bonus game which sets the animals against each other in a money race to the finish. Landing chilli’s allows one of the animals to race ahead but too long between chilli’s will see the animals falling off the track.
This month's release "Jungle Jump" features Jin, the Red Panda, a tree climbing daredevil who takes on giant venus fly traps, bees, crocodiles and a choking snake.
"Jungle Jump" is the company's first Cascading Slot which sees winning symbols payout and then disappear leaving space for new symbols and extra winning opportunities.
The Jungle Jump Bonus game triggered with a score of four consecutive cascading wins will have Jin attempting to catch the butterfly while facing a series of challenges.
Michael Saunders, Managing Director, Jackpotjoy said: “In many ways Jungle Jump is a great example of what we try to achieve here at Jackpotjoy. It’s inventive but accessible, it’s cute and all about the entertainment but the chance to win cash is ever present. It’s a really exciting addition to our suite.
“The cascade is a great feature, it offers the chance of a multiple winning experience from every spin and that can’t be a bad thing!”
