Reinforcing its reputation as one of the industry’s leading content aggregators, Microgaming continues to build relationships with the most exciting and original new studios in the gaming space. This is what keeps the platform’s content fresh, diverse and relevant.
And what could be more diverse than a shower of new games that take in Egyptian mythology, Arthurian legend, gothic horror, and pirate adventure, while offering jackpots, Firepots, blazing wheels, expanding reels, free spins, respins, Super Spins, and much, much more?
First up is 8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger™ Megaways™ (22 April), a game from Buck Stakes Entertainment, the latest newcomer to Microgaming’s network of exclusive independent studios. This glamorous pirate-themed slot is tipped for great things, not least because it’s brimming with features. Players can win up to 1,900x their stake thanks to the Firepot™ jackpot scatter feature. There’s a mystery symbol feature, plus Rolling Reels™ and a free spins and multiplier bonus wheel. And it’s all topped off with the acclaimed Megaways™ mechanic, randomly producing between 64 to 117,649 ways to win with every spin.
Queen of Alexandria™ WowPot (13 April) from Neon Valley Studios transports players to the ancient world and the court of Cleopatra. We’ve all heard about Cleopatra’s milk bath, but did you know she also had a WowPot? This is the WowPot progressive jackpot, which features four different progressive jackpot tiers, with the top prize seeding at €2 million and nearing €15 million at the time of writing – all the riches of the pharaohs! Once the WowPot Bonus Wheel has been triggered, the player is guaranteed to take home one of the four jackpot prizes in a lump sum. Queen of Alexandria WowPot boasts an expanding wilds respin feature and, in addition to the WowPot game, Queen of Alexandria is available as a standalone game with fixed-limit jackpots.
You know what can be a real goldmine these days? Goldmining. And that’s what Gold Collector (6 April) from All41 Studios is all about. This is a cartoon caper set deep underground, as we excavate the earth for the world’s third-most precious metal using shovels, pickaxes and good old-fashioned TNT. The star of the show is the HyperHold™ feature, which offers players the chance to win one of five jackpots. Landing a gold coin on a reel during this feature will lock it in, while the respins reset to three. Filling as many gold-coin positions rewards big prizes.
SpinPlay Games’ 9 Blazing Diamonds (27 April) is a classic slot shot through with fiery gemstones that cascade down the reels as boisterous big band music adds a frenetic pace to the proceedings. Watch out for the aforementioned blazing diamonds, which award prizes when three or more are scattered on the reels. The Blazing Wheel offers players the chance to win either instant cash prizes or free spins, both of which come with a multiplier up to 4x!
It’s back to Egypt with Snowborn Games’ Egyptian Tombs (29 April) as we scour ancient tombs for treasure, bumping into everyone from Cleopatra to the Egyptian sun god Ra along the way. Landing three Scarab symbols triggers the Tomb Bonus feature, where players can spin the Wheel of Fortune to win 8-50 free spins. Meanwhile, hitting three Scarab symbols during free spins will retrigger the feature and award extra spins. During Super Spins, which is randomly triggered, extra symbols are added to the reels and Ra symbols turn wild.
It’s then off to Camelot for Book of King Arthur (20 April) from Just For The Win. Join Arthur on a quest to explore the riches of Avalon. On the way, encounter expanding wilds and boosters and spin the Round Table for a chance to win jackpots.
Vampire hunting next, with Anna Van Helsing Monster Huntress (15 April) from Rabcat. This is a spooky slot that has awesome features with great names like Wolf Howl, Wolf Attack and Dracula’s Banishment. Say no more?
Fu88 (26 April) is a charming Chinese-themed slot from Neko. The name of the Chinese character Fu (福) means “blessing” or “good luck” and this game offers players the chance to get lucky by matching three “Fu Babies” to win a jackpot – one of several delightful bonus games.
Hold’Em Poker 2 (12 April) is the latest edition in Microgaming’s new poker offering. This multiplayer game has a random prize-pool generator that’s linked to a progressive jackpot. It also has funky new avatars and comes fully optimised for mobile gaming.
Next, new kid on the block, Gong Gaming Technologies, presents Inferno Gladiator (12 April). If you think it was a tough life being a Roman gladiator, try doing it when the Colosseum is on fire! This scorching adventure offers players free spins, sticky wilds and multipliers galore.
Finally, a nod to some great content from third-party partners coming in April. Inspired’s Irish-themed Slots O’Luck (6 April) allows players to enable the Gamble feature for a chance to increase their winnings or to win free spins. Then it’s time to get medieval for some Robin Hood-style adventures in Robbin’ Robin (7 April), a feature-packed slot from Iron Dog Studio.
There’s a double whammy of classic slot action from 1x2gaming with Triple Bar 98 and Triple Bar 96. Meanwhile, Survivor (19 April) from Big Time Gaming leverages the excitement of the international TV franchise of the same name and offers a unique twist on the popular Megaways™ mechanic.
Ancient Greek legend next with Phoenix Inferno (21 April) from 1x2gaming and everyone’s favourite combustible mythical bird, followed by a spot of angling-themed slot action with Fishing Cashpots (26 April) from Inspired. And we round off a packed month by heading off on a mystical quest to break the eternal frost and unleash the spring with Wild Flower (28 April) from Big Time Gaming.
