There are three new games in Internet gambling software developer Microgaming's offerings for August launched this week.
STASH OF THE TITANS is a 5 reel, 20 pay-line video slot with a theme that takes a tongue-in-cheek look at some of those tall tales from Greek mythology and the 1981 cult movie with a similar title. The brilliant artwork has many familiar looking characters such as Medusa, Cerebus, Pegasus and the dreaded monster Kraken, all integrated into a game that has a wide range of winning opportunities through Wild, Scatter, Free Spin and Multiplier advantages.
Far from turning the unwary into stone, the snake-haired Medusa symbol across 3, 4 or 5 reels creates solid action for players, delivering Scatter awards and 15 Free Spins at 4x multiplier, and triggering major other rewards of up to 50x bet. The Stash of the Titans logo is Wild and can generate 10x multiplier action in sufficient numbers, whilst the winged horse Pegasus and a treasure chest bursting with good things can individually or in combination add to the players' take-home.
Bet from as little as 0.01 or as much as 40.00 on this game, with achievable rewards in the base game of 10 000.00 and up to 40 000.00 on the Free Spins.
Whether the bet is 0.40 or 20.00, the brand new video poker game JACKS OR BETTER LEVEL UP POKER promises hours of entertainment and a crack at rewards as high as 4 000 coins with a maximum 8x Multiplier. This completely new video poker game is the first release in a new series, where players climb four different levels with increasing rewards for each victory. Included in the game is a random Free Ride feature and a double-your-money Gamble feature worth 3 200 that adds to the excitement.
Jacks or Better Level Up Poker is played at one hand per level using a fresh 52 card deck for each hand, and the player interface graphics are presented in a clean and colorful style that is easy to read and operate.
The last game on the August release list is a seriously big 5 reel, 30 pay-line video slot with a host of winning features called THE ADVENTURES OF THE GALACTIC GOPHER. The theme is a comical journey into space, populated with imaginatively weird and colourful aliens presenting a variety of winning features that include Wild, Multiplier, Scatter, Free Spin and Gamble action.
The key symbols in this game are the spaceship and the Galactic Gopher himself, with the critter running Wild and the ship operating as the Scatter…and the trigger for a generous Free Spins feature. This delivers up to 10 re-triggering freebies in which all wins are multiplied by a mystery multiplier, but keep a sharp eye out… when a rocket blasts off it indicates a mystery multiplier win as the smoke clears.
Packing more action into an already exciting game, Galactic Gopher offers a Gamble feature in which players can double their winnings by choosing the right colour, or quadruple them by guessing the right suit.
