Friday, January 8, 2016 : A FEAST OF NEW ONLINE SLOTS TO START THE YEAR
Several developers have announced upcoming launches in January.
With the International Casino Expo (ICE) show just around the corner, online gambling games developers have kicked off the new year with several new offerings.
Play'n Go, Yggdrasil and NetEnt have joined Microgaming, Kiron Interactive, Inspired and NYX in providing refreshing new games (see previous InfoPowa reports), and the release of what is likely to be a blockbuster this year – NetEnt's Guns ‘n Roses slot – is imminent.
Play'n Go has a January 14 date scheduled for the release of its high volatility, ten line slot with an ancient Egyptian theme, Book of the Dead.
The game features slot hero Rich Wilde, who uses his knowledge of history and hieroglyphics to help players turn over a new leaf in Book of Dead. He guides punters through the mythical underworld of Ancient Egypt to help step into the light after hopefully rewarding encounters with the god of antiquity, Anubis and Osiris.
In this game the Book of the Dead can also act as the Wild or Scatter symbol in the search for winning combinations, and a re-triggable free spin feature gives players a shot at wins as high as a quarter-million credits.
The new Yggdrasil slot Incinerator could not be more different in terms of theme, soaring into space and sorting out the growing amount of technical junk floating out there.
Due for release January 21, this game has a 5 reel, 20 pay-line configuration and reportedly a 96 percent RTP. The players control the universe's biggest incinerator on the hunt for the space debris symbols which adorn the reels.
Three successive wins triggers a wild pattern feature for rewarding combination opportunities, and other features include a cascading reel dynamic and exploding symbols.
Incinerator will come out in desktop and mobile formats.
In addition to the much-anticipated January 21 release of the Guns and Roses slots, NetEnt will also be more generally launching the 5 reel, 243 Ways to Win slot Fantasini: Master of Mystery, which has hitherto been exclusive to Sportingbet (see previous InfoPowa reports). It’s a spectacular, linked reels game full of wonder and rewards, the developer claims, and a preview can be accessed here:
