No sign of a slow down for the sunny month of May, but an abundance of new fruit mean a chance of good apples falling from the developers’ tree. This week, a quirky and comical follow up by Hacksaw Gaming gets a serious multiplier and a brand new concept from Scientific Games aims to bring players together. The increasingly popular Gigablox mechanic gains snappy headway from Yggdrasil Gaming while, at the same time, Play’n GO have another go at proving theirs is worth your attention.
25th May 2021 | Hacksaw Gaming – Stack ‘Em
Canny the Can is back! Stack ‘Em is the sequel to Stick ‘Em, played on a 5×6 grid using cluster pays with wild substitutions and reel multipliers for stacked symbols. From 0.20 to 100 credits per spin plus a bonus buy at 126x bet, Stack ‘Em has an RTP of 96.20% and is highly volatile fun.
Boasting serious win potential when mystery rewards and cumulative multipliers combine, Stack ‘Em has a wonderfully simple and exciting bonus round; X and ? symbols can keep the action rolling spin after spin, building the multiplier and adding hearts for wins of up to 10,000 times your bet.
26th May 2021 | Scientific Games – Secret of Troy: Jackpot Wars
Secret of Troy: Jackpot Wars is a new game type that combines standard slot play with separate multiplayer side tournaments. Alongside the Secret of Troy medium volatility slot action from 0.20 to 50 credits with wilds, sticky wilds and two bonus modes, players can choose to compete on a community level for four progressive jackpots.
Jackpot Wars is an interesting attempt at merging slots and personalised multiplayer gaming. Future titles will explore the customisation of avatars and new formats of multiplayer tournaments. Secret Of Troy: Jackpot Wars as a slot comes with an RTP of 96.60% and wins of up to 5,000 times your bet or 250,000 credits, whichever is reached first.
27th May 2021 | Yggdrasil Gaming – Gator Gold Gigablox
After delving into Japanese culture on Lucky Necko Gigablox and taking us into the dark underworld of Hades Gigablox, Yggdrasil Gaming invites us to a safari on Gator Gold Gigablox; a highly volatile reel safari with six reels, four rows and 4,096 ways to win, plus linked reels on every spin creating Giga symbol blocks of up to 4×4.
You can face the mighty reptile on desktop, tablet and mobile from 0.20 to 60 credits per spin with a single RTP of 96.00%. During the free spins, landing any scatter will add one free spin with no limits. The main twist of the bonus round are the multiplier wilds. Whenever they land, they will display either an x2 or an x3 win multiplier, boosting towards a game potential of 20,000 times your bet.
27th May 2021 | Play’n – GO Prism of Gems
Play’n GO follow up on Perfect Gems and Frozen Gems with Prism of Gems, this time with one big difference, a 30,000x your stake maximum win. The titles use a horizontal tracker on top of the reels, called the Multiplier Reel and a cascading symbol mechanic. The combination has the potential to split symbols and multiply wins of up to x343 in Prism of Gems, creating chains of winning cascades. The mechanic is rather simple but quite effective when you are lucky enough to have a few cascades within the same spin.
Starting with a default 3-4-4-4-3 reel set with 576 payways, the mechanic can increase the game window to a maximum 3-7-7-7-3 format and 3,087 payways. The game has high volatility (9/10) with a default RTP of 96.24% and a spin amount from 0.20 to 100 credits. Beware, some operators might offer it with secondary RTP settings of 94.25% or even as shockingly low as 91.24%, which could somewhat sour the beauty of the dynamic reels.
Lots to spoil yourself with this week as Blueprint also launch their bounty hunter themed King of the West, Quickspin brings us Blue Fortune at a generous 96.57% RTP and an honourable mention should go to Book of Muertitos by Spearhead Studios for carrying the highest potential yet for a ‘book’ slot, dwarfing the usual 5000x with a whopping 27,000x your stake max win potential.
