This week James Ross, Reporter of SlotBeats presents the Slot Selection on Gambling TV, made in collaboration with SlotBeats, looking at this weeks top slot releases from BGaming, Habanero, Slotmill and Red Tiger.
First up is Habanero’s Orbs of Atlantis, which sees players dive into the deep unknown and uncover treasure from the lost world.
This cascading video slot includes a Free Game made with 1,000 Free Spins and the company’s Big Reels mechanic.
During the game, symbols move on predefined paths and pay once all symbols stop. Symbols on the same path that appear adjacent pay according to the paytable. If a winning combination has more symbols than defined in the paytable, the highest pay will be awarded for each extra symbol.
The firm’s Big Reels feature offers up to 40 symbols that can appear on a single path and pay up to 9300x the player’s bet, Orbs of Atlantis’s wins are multiplied up to 15x for cascading games.
As an added twist, players are also able to win up to 1,000 Free Games when they buy nine or more scatter symbols – provided by Habanero’s engagement-boosting Buy Feature, which can enable free games to be retriggered.
Second on our list is Red Tiger’s Dragon’s Fire: InfiniReels that brings the heat with its ‘limitless’ new game, which incorporates NetEnt’s InfiniReels mechanic offering unlimited ways to win.
Each win in Dragon’s Fire: InfiniReels presents players with a new reel on the right side of the locked reels for the next spin and multiplying the number of bet ways by three each time from the starting number of 27.
The Fire Egg feature is activated when a Scatter symbol reveals a multiplier that applies to all wins. Only one egg can land per spin and new egg symbols will add to the current multiplier amount if one is already active. When the reels reset to the initial size, the multiplier will reset.
Three Dragon Spins Scatters on the initial three reels will launch eight Dragon Spins, after which only one randomly selected symbol will land on the reels. A further two Scatter symbols appearing in Dragon Spins will add two additional spins to the bonus round.
Up next, Slotmill has electrified its ever-growing Slotmill Classics series with the inclusion of Neon Dreams, a retro 80s-themed slot.
Neon Dreams is a nine-reel video slot which includes a bonus feature, incorporating a progression metre and win multipliers to aid players.
If the player matches at least three matching symbols, they will secure a win, while four matching symbols awards a respin of the non-matching reels.
Once five matching symbols are collected, the bonus feature is triggered. This round is based on collecting additional symbols of the type that activated the bonus mode.
Furthemore, a progression metre is displayed which presents win multipliers. Each trigger symbol moves the player one step towards the multipliers which are dynamic and increase in value for every star symbol collected.
A respin is awarded every time at least one trigger symbol lands on the reels and a lifeline extends the bonus feature. A lifeline grants the player one extra respin when no trigger symbol lands on the reels.
Finally, SlotBeat’s Slot of the Week goes to BGaming for its Diamond extravaganza title, Four Lucky Diamonds, which mixes classical gambling symbols with colourful gems.
Four Lucky Diamonds is a five-reel, 10-payline video slot which offers a Luck Spin mode along with Stacked Wilds that can be replicated.
Only available during the bonus round, the Wild symbol substitutes any symbol in a line to complete a winning combination. Within the Lucky Spins mode, four playable reels become available in case the wins in the main game reach the fourfold size of the bet or higher.
Moreover, the Stacked Wilds, which are only available in the bonus round, can appear on the third central reel. Stacked Wilds helps to complete winning combinations by substituting other symbols on the reels, increasing chances of winning.
If Stacked Wilds appear on one of the 4 bonus reels, they are duplicated on the subsequent reels.
The title comes with a medium to high volatility level implemented within the slot and an RTP of 94 per cent.
