MICROGAMING ANNOUNCES SPARKLING NEW GAMES ON DOWNLOAD PLATFORM
ISLE OF MAN – Microgaming (www.microgaming.com), the world’s largest provider of online gaming software, is announcing a sparkling selection of new games, exclusively available on its download platform.
Multi-Player Roulette Diamond Edition is the latest addition to Microgaming’s growing portfolio of Multi-Player games. It is a European roulette game aimed at creating the buzz of live roulette with a group of players around a single roulette table. The Multi-Player style of gaming creates an interactive community as it allows multiple players to login to a single game session, where players can chat with one another and watch how others perform on the table, creating a more competitive atmosphere.
The Diamond Edition features realistic 3D graphics, focussing on the roulette wheel itself, supported by detailed and colourful table and control illustrations. The software features a 3D wheel zoom and autoplay facility as well as controllable game speed in the ranges of 20, 40 or 60 second spins.
Multi-Player Roulette has a wide betting range that will suit most bankrolls, and captures the excitement and suspense of playing against worthy competitors.
Power Spins – Nuclear 9s is a ‘nuclear-powered’ video slot which incorporates Microgaming’s new Power Spins™ feature. The feature can be activated whenever the player chooses, by simply clicking on the Power Spin™ button. The player will enter the exhilarating power spins mode which will activate a Rolling Reels™ feature, adding increasing multipliers to subsequent wins.
The Power Spins™ feature is played at max lines with an additional bet of 3x the player’s current line bet – a small price for activating the amazing winning advantages.
The 5 reel, 9 pay-line game provides players with wild, scatter and multiplier winning opportunities, and all shown in striking graphics.
The wild nuclear logo symbol helps to build winning combinations and has high pay table returns, along with the nuclear nines after which the game is named. Scatter potential is provided by the atomic molecular icon which multiplies winnings by the total wager.
Players can bet as little as 0.01 or as much as 10.00 per line, with a maximum bet of 90.00. This can yield a jackpot reward of over 50000.00 in both the standards and Power Spins ™ mode.
Rhyming Reels - Old King Cole is a new addition to Microgaming’s popular Rhyming Reels series of slots, themed on the traditional rhyming song Old King Cole. It has fun graphics with the three fiddlers being replaced by three young rocking girl guitarists.
This 5 reel, 20 payline video slot game, includes free spins, generous multipliers, a double wild, and a special gamble feature.
The game features an additional wild during the free spins cycle, improving winning combination possibilities through the king's logo and an up-to-date gold compact disc. On the scatter front, the king's ornate crown across reels 3, 4 or 5, triggers 12 free spins with a multiplier of up to 7x.
The free spins feature is made more attractive by the possibility that it can retrigger during the free round, with similar multipliers. Rounding off an entertaining and potentially generous set of features is the popular gamble offer in which players can elect to predict the next suit and colour to double or quadruple winnings.
Players can achieve excellent results with a maximum bet of 100.00 on this game; over 17 000.00 in the base game and over 120 000.00 in free spins.
