Category : Slots news
A pair of desert adventures and a classic fruit machine feature in the latest round of new slots releases with Magic of Sahara, Mega Pyramid and Win Escalator all out now.
Magic of Sahara – Microgaming
The first of the new arrivals is Magic of Sahara. Created by All41 Studios exclusively for Microgaming, it’s a 5 reel, 9 payline slot that takes players to the beautiful sands of North Africa. The highlight of this desert trek is the Free Spins feature which can be triggered in 2 different ways. Every time a magical tribal elder symbol lands, he transforms a lower value symbol and awards a token. Once you’ve collected a chain of 25 tokens, you’ll trigger 25 free spins.
You can also activate the bonus in usual manner by landing 3 or more scatters. After a payout of 3, 25 or 100 times your stake, you’ll then play the number of spins currently in the chain plus 5. Regardless of how you trigger the feature, all wins in the free spins round come with a 2x multiplier and are doubled. Also helping your winning chances are super stacked wilds which can land on all 5 reels.
Mega Pyramid – Red Tiger Gaming
The first of this week’s pair of new releases from Red Tiger Gaming is the superbly designed Mega Pyramid. As its name suggests, this is an ancient Egyptian-themed slot that’s played using a 5 reel, 30 payline game engine.
Thunder and lightning heralds the arrival of the Pyramid Eye feature. 1 symbol is picked at random above the reels. This symbol then clones in multiple directions. A new payout calculation then follows with the newly cloned symbols in position.
Landing 3 scatters on the same spin triggers the second bonus, the Free Spins feature. On offer here are 10 free spins. Before they start, the Pyramid Eye picks 1 symbol at random. This will then be the cloned symbol for the whole round. Mega Pyramid is a novel take on this hugely popular theme. If you’re an Egyptologist, then it’s one not to miss.
Win Escalator – Red Tiger Gaming
Rounding out the hat trick of new release is Win Escalator. This 4 reel, 8 payline fruit machine also comes from Red Tiger Gaming. Central to the action here are the diamond wilds. When they land, they lock in place then drop down the reels 1 position at a time on subsequent spins.
Trigger the bonus round and you’ll receive 10 free spins. Each diamond wild that lands adds 1 extra free spin to your total. You could also see the reels expand in size. This can bring up to 5 extra rows into play which can really boost your winning chances.
This reboot of the old school fruity is nicely done. There’s a fresh look to the visuals and the electro soundtrack bounces along. The gameplay comes with a few twists which can lead to some potentially exciting action, especially in the bonus round where the expanding reels and dropping wilds can combine to excellent effect. If you like classic games. then Win Escalator is well worth considering.
