May is one of the loveliest months of the year and online casino content supplier Microgaming has just made it even greater by releasing its latest monthly report teasing its upcoming new game releases.
Two of the company’s newest games have already gone live since the beginning of the month and it promises a wild bonanza of more in the coming days and weeks.
Serengeti Gold from Just For The Win was rolled out on May 4 offering full-blown safari-style action packed into a colorful online slot. In this new game, the kings of Africa’s rich Serengeti ecosystem – lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffaloes – are competing for the players’ attention with a number of thrilling features, including Hyperhold Respins, Static Jackpots, and free spins with multipliers.
The Hyperhold Respins are activated when six or more bonus symbols appear. The triggering symbols get locked in place, while only new bonus symbols land on the reels throughout the feature. These offer multipliers of between 1x and 20x and jackpots. If all positions are filled during the feature, the 2,500x Mega Jackpot is activated.
May 6 saw the premiere of 10,000 Wishes, an Arabian-themed slot from Alchemy Gaming. The game offers a Wheel Bonus that has a jackpot of up to 10,000x a player’s stake. When three or more Power Wheel scatters roll onto the reels, the Power Spins feature is triggered. There the reels are filled with giant symbols that offer bigger payouts.
Power Spins is also where the Wheel Bonus mode can be activated. When this most exciting feature is triggered, players are guaranteed one of four fixed prizes – a Mega (10,000x), Major (500x), Minor (50x), or Mini (15x) jackpot.
Atlantis Rising, set for May 11 debut, is the latest online slot inspired by the underwater city legend. SpinPlay Games is the studio behind this colorful fantasy world that is also equipped with multiple features, including Rising Wilds, Wild Blasts, and free spins.
When a compass symbol appears behind a Rising Wild, all adjacent positions become wilds to form a Wild Blast. During free spins, players are asked to select bubbles until no picks remain. Each selected bubble hides between one and five free spins or two or three additional picks.
New Megaways and Mega Moolah Offerings
Microgaming is set to release two Megaways slots this month and the first one is set for May 18 release. Joyful Joker Megaways from All41 Studios encompasses traditional slot symbols such as fruit, bells, horseshoes, and a joker but is enhanced by the powerful Megaways and Rolling Reels mechanics.
Joker Spins activate randomly on any winning spin during base game. These unlock a bonus wheel that awards multipliers of between 2x and 10x. During free spins, an expanding multiplier grows with each Rolling Reels win.
The other Megaways title – Ancient Fortunes: Poseidon Megaways from Triple Edge Studios, will be rolled out on May 25. This underwater adventure mixes the excitement of the Megaways engine offering up to 117,645 winways with Rolling Reels. There are also infinite multipliers in free spins and a Collect Pot mechanic that triggers a Pick Bonus and a jackpot.
