Two game developers, Jackpot Party's owner WMS and NYX Interactive have released new slots this week, extending the already wide offers now available to online gamblers.
Debuting at Jackpot Party.com is Episode 3 in the WMS Star Trek series, amusingly titled The Trouble with Tribbles, and presenting another opportunity for fans of the previous two Star Trek slots to earn more medals.
The theme is based on a single program in the Star Trek television series, and it features a one of a kind pin ball feature round triggered when three or more Scatters appear on the reels. This opens up the pinball feature game, in which Tribbles are fired out of the centre of the screen and gravitate down through the playfield to holes lower down.
On the way the Tribbles can land in cups with rewards of 2x multipliers or more Tribbles to be fired.
The field also includes a door feature where players select doors behind which are random rewards
Adding even more to the action is a series of four Win Warps and a Spock Multiplier that can boost wins by between 3x and 10x, and capitalising on the famous characters in the Star Trek series there are features like Captain Kirk's Wild Green Alien, a Scotty's Wild Reel Changer, and a starship Enterprise fly-by that can turn all symbols in winning combinations into one of the other reels symbols in a special Win Warp.
Players collect medals throughout the game, which can then be used to unlock new content and bonuses.
The Swedish provider NYX Interactive has announced the release of a further two new slot games to its growing casino portfolio.
With disparate themes of Fun and Horror, both games are available as mini and standard size versions catering for Bingo, Sports, Poker and Casino operators. As with the full suite of games they form part of NYX's hosted mini game and casino service offering.
Funland Festival is a 5-reel 20 pay line video slot game, filled with Free Spins, Scatters, Wilds, Double Wilds and a Bonus game, nd sporting graphics of roller coasters and other components of the funfair, whilst Haunting Harry features an unfortunate official bearing an eviction notice to a haunted mansion who suffers the scary consequences of upsetting the resident monsters.
The 5 reel 20 pay-line game has colourful graphics depicting well-known horror characters like Frankenstein's monster and the malicious Mummy, and offers a max payout of GBP100 000 to the fortunate.
