Joe Exotic - Red Tiger
Red Tiger launched its newest igaming player in Joe Exotic
, a 5 × 4, 15 payline slot with features including free spins, tiger prize symbols and a country themed playlist, provided by Joe himself.
The game features an exotic spin, giving players nine free spins when you land on the 1st, 3rd and 5th reels. At the start of the mode, the middle reel will turn into a full Joe Exotic reel wild symbol that has an increasing multiplier.
The Red Tiger game also features Tiger Bounty symbols, a triggering game of chance when players land on the same reels. Here Joe Exotic's partner Allen Glover receives up to four offers from the Tiger King where he randomly accepts one of 5x, 08x, 25x, or 117x the stake.
Finally, the game features an election time feature where characters run for president rewarding players with cash payments each time they win three votes. In addition, a dynamite function will be launched that will replace all low-paying symbols with high-paying ones.
Black Gold 2 Megaways - Stakelogic
restores the richest oil tycoons in the West in Black Gold 2 Megaways, a 2 × 7 slot with a payline of up to 25,649, featuring bonus feature symbols, wilds and free spins.
In the game, players set up rigs and use dynamite to destroy lower symbols, with a bonus eighth reel positioned on top of the seven main reels.
When the Bonus Feature symbol lands in the center of the Bonus Drum, it activates valves from the tube to open upwards, spilling oil onto the main spools. Drums hit by oil receive a bonus, which is indicated by the discharged bonus function symbol.
When four or more scatter symbols land, the player receives a Free Spins bonus that has a multiplier that remains active for the entire duration. Players also have the option to decide the number of free spins they want as well as the size of the starting multiplier.
In addition, the Gold Rush Bonus feature gives players three respins which reset when the bonus symbols fall. Bonus symbols have multipliers that add up for the duration of the function.
“We've packed the game with features to help players in their quest to find oil and secure their own riches, including free spins, respins and multipliers.
"It is an extremely exciting slot with lots of ways to win on every spin - we believe that with its exciting gameplay it could become even more popular than the original." - Olga Bajela, CCO at Stakelogic.
Suncatcher Gigablox - Yggdrasil
Yggdrasil unveiled the Suncatcher Gigablox, 5 × 3, 10-payline with features including Gigablox mechanics and a wild respin feature.
In each spin, at least one set of synchronized reels will create large blocks of symbols up to 3 × 3 in size. There is also a large shiny diamond symbol in the game, which when you land, the wild symbol will expand and stick to all positions on the reel, triggering a respin.
A developing wild symbol can appear on any reel and is worth a payout of 25x a five-of-a-kind.
The grid can also be filled with wild symbols which, instead of rewarding with a respin, an additional 392x wager is provided in addition to regular winnings.
“We have worked very hard to incorporate our GigaBlox mechanic into products that appeal to all fans and we are very excited to launch the Suncatcher GigaBlox.
"For players who enjoy smooth gameplay, this is an immersive journey through the stars in search of vast wilds and even greater symbols." - Stuart McCarthy, Head of Product and Programs at Yggdrasil.
Diamond Link: Mighty Emperor - Greentube
Greentube released its fourth title in the Diamond Link series, with Diamond Link: Mighty Emperor featuring improved hold n spin mechanics, along with wild, sticky, and colossal spins.
During the game, players must fill the Diamond bar - located at the top of the screen. After collecting six diamonds, the Diamond Link function is activated. In this mode, players get three free spins and each additional diamond symbol that lands resets the counter to three. If a player is able to fill an entire set of drums with diamonds, he wins the big jackpot.
Also, if the scatter symbol - a diamond with the wild spin logo - lands on the reels, the free spin is rewarded with a guaranteed win. As you spin, a random number of wild symbols are randomly distributed across the reels to help complete winning combinations.
Also, if the scatter lands with the spin logo glued on, all winning symbols will be blocked and the reels will spin again. This repeats itself until the entire reel set is filled with a winning combination.
Alternately, another variation is the colossal spin logo. When this lands, a free spin is awarded where the middle three reels show a giant symbol that covers the 3 × 3 position while reels one and five spin again.
“This beautifully designed game takes players to a mystical ancient kingdom and offers the chance to win the main prizes.
“In an attractive package there is a game with real depth. Diamond Link: Mighty Emperor takes the hugely popular hold n spin feature to the next level, and we're excited to see how players respond to the evolved mechanics and possibilities it offers. - Boro Brumen, head of games at Greentube
