Thursday June 7, 2012 : NEW GAMES FROM NOVOMATIC
Video slots and classic fruit machine-style offerings
Novomatic have released a slew of new games developed by its GreenTube subsidiary.
"Secret Elixir" heads the list of 5-reel, 40-payline games, its iconography depicting mystical elements such as gargoyles, owls, gems and secret elixirs in a game that offers Free Spins, Multipliers, Wilds and a Gamble feature.
The Wild (a man wearing goggles) substitutes for all other symbols except the scattered green gems. Three or more scatters on screen, will award twelve free spins, during which each line win is multiplied by up to a generous 20X.
Several secret elixir symbols which may appear on reel 5 can multiply winnings by 2, 3 or 5X depending on which mix appears. The Gamble feature, selected after a win, asks the player to select red or black and doubles winnings on the correct answer.
In staying with the mystical theme, "Fairy Queen" is themed on magic mushrooms, dragons, trolls, gnomes and a fairy queen. The most valuable symbol, the fairy queen, bestows generous rewards when five symbols land on an active payline. She substitutes for all other symbols except the light-in-the-forest scatter. 10 free spins are awarded if three or more scatter symbols appear on the reels.
"Mystic Secrets" follows a similar thematic with the King symbol, who also represents Wild, being the most valuable. It substitutes for all other symbols except mystical book scatters.
Three or more mystical books on screen will land 10 free spins and activate the bonus feature. The Bonus game features an additional Wild symbol that expands over two randomly chosen reels during free spins.
Novomatic's "Fruits ‘n Royals" depicts vivid graphics of lemons, plums, oranges, stars, crowns, kings and queens in a game that offers Scatters, Free Spins and a Gamble feature.
Cartoon chickens, jack-o-lantern headed scarecrows, windmills and shotgun shells cross the reels in Novomatic's humourous farm-themed "Moorhuhn" slot. This game features Wilds, Scatters and a Bonus feature that offers two options to the player of either free spins or a shootout game.
A tropical beach-themed offering titled "Costa del Cash" shows happy surfers, jet skis, cocktails, the sun and the characters A, K, Q, 10 and 9 and offers Free Spins, Multipliers, Scatters, a Gamble feature and a Hot Beach Bonus game.
The 3D slot game "Fruit Sensation" doubles wins from previous spins when the Gamble feature is selected. It is a Flash format game that carries a maximum jackpot of 5000 coins with a minimum bet of $0.02.
"Spinning Stars", a 5-reel 10-payline game, is a traditional fruit-themed video slot with all the associated icons. Stars are Wild in this game and substitute for all other symbols. Landing two stars on the reels will trigger the Star Spin feature in which symbols on the three middle reels revolve around a central wild star symbol – providing opportunity for additional awards.
Rounding off the list, another classically-styled fruity is the 3-reel, 5-payline game titled "Hot Chance". Along with a gamble feature, if three of the same plums, oranges or lemons land on an active payline, the Hot Chance feature is triggered where players can double their prize up to three times.
