Friday November 6,2015 : FEAST AHEAD FOR ONLINE SLOT PLAYERS
New games from Microgaming, Lightning Box, Playtech and Yggdrasil previewed.
Online slot fans will have plenty to keep them entertained in the coming weeks, judging by new games previewed Friday by software providers Microgaming, Lightning Box, Playtech and Yggdrasil.
Two games – Serenity and Happy Holidays – are set for release, probably in the coming holiday season, by Microgaming:
Serenity is an elegant five reel video slot with a peaceful Asian theme carried by outstanding graphics and relaxing, oriental sound effects. Punters have a choice to play between 1 and 15 selectable lines and the possibility of wins of up to 120 000 credits, and if 3 or more Chinese lantern symbols land on an active pay line, a Lantern Bonus is awarded, offering a choice of 5 beautifully decorated lanterns, each awarding a random Bonus prize.

With the end of the year festive season now just over the horizon, Microgaming has also released a preview of a slot titled Happy Holidays, which goes back to the very popular traditional snowy western Christmas to inspire the theme, with eggnog, decorated trees and Santa Claus. This feel-good festive game has a 5 reel, 243 Ways To Win format and includes Free Spins and bonuses that can take the winning opportunities up to 1,024.

Lightning Box is a perhaps lesser known provider, but one that has produced some highly entertaining games with often quirky features. Its new Pixie Gold video slot comes equipped with the popular Reelfecta facility, giving a total of 1,296 Ways in a 3 x 3 x 16 x 3 x 3 layout. Watch out for the mouse towing a carriage along the bottom of the reels – it randomly and spectacularly releases an unusual winnings-boosting feature.
Pixie Gold is due for release on December 16, and the preview is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3zHiKWk4EfQ
Playtech has catered for fans of big action combat movies with its take on the massively popular Top Gun movie of yesteryear, developing a video slot replete with fighter jet sound effects and graphics of the Tomcat fighter made famous by Tom Cruise in the "need for speed" movie. This feature-rich game has a 5 reel, 243 Ways To Win format and can be previewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Hq2fvu8_1Y.
Swedish provider Yggdrasil has chosen eastern mysticism and some rather unusual creatures as the broad theme for its latest slot, due for release end-November and titled Nirvana.
The game has a free spins mode where players get to choose from three different bonus games, described as the Wild Bomb, the Nudge Reel and the Joint Reel. Punters can play with two or even three of these features at the same time and that should make the free spins mode particularly interesting, the provider claims. The sound effects calm the mind in the best Buddhism and Hinduism tradition, but there's plenty of action within this feature-rich game.
