Five Microgaming Online Slot Games Released in 2020
Only a week into the second month of 2020, it is already evident that Microgaming developers are hard at work. The number of online slot game releases this year is striking, if not downright impressive.
This list shows five new online casino games now available at the Canada’s top gambling sites, along with several others in development.
Jackpot City and Casino Chan are two of the highest-ranked sites for Canadian players online, and they have deals with Microgaming to offer the latest releases. They are often some of the most popular games on these sites, especially when they are first released and still available in the “new games” categories.
Let’s take a look at the list of games.
Book of Atem
The first Microgaming release of 2020 was Book of Atem, a slot with an ancient Egyptian theme. It was developed by All41 Studios exclusively for Microgaming and released on January 7.
The 5-reel game features 10 paylines and the potential to win up to 5000x the bet. Features include free spins, wilds, and expanding symbols in the bonus round.
Double Lucky Line
Microgaming’s partnership with Just For The Win has produced some of the most popular slot games available. The latest is Double Lucky Line, released on January 14 just before the Lunar New Year. The Asian theme boasts of frogs and gold tokens, even celebratory fireworks.
The 5-reel slot offers 17 paylines, but the double symbols are quite lucrative. Other features include random wilds, lucky wilds, double wilds, and free spins that accumulate with lucky money tree appearances.
Triple Edge Studios has made a good impression on Microgaming with releases like its latest, African Quest. This was released on January 21 as a 5×4 video slot with an African safari theme.
The game offers 1,024 paylines, along with Hyperspins, a paid respin mechanism that was first featured in Break Da Bank Again Respin last year. Other features in African Quest include stacked symbols, scatters, free spins, and multipliers. Players can win up to a 64x multiplier.
The Incredible Balloon Machine
Another release in January was a result of another partnership, this time between Microgaming and Crazy Tooth Studio. And it produced The Incredible Balloon Machine, a colorful game with inflating balloons against a blue-sky backdrop, released on January 28.
The game is anything but a typical online slot game, as there are no reels at all. Pressing the “spin” button inflates the balloon until it pops, revealing a possible award. But there are also features like multipliers, a pick-a-bonus feature, and advancing bonus rounds.
Wheel of Wishes
This game is back to the traditional slot action and was developed by Alchemy Gaming for a February 11 release. It has an Arabian theme mixed with genie lamps and mystical symbols.
The 5-reel game features stacked wilds, scatters, and the Power Spin, the latter of which reveals a 3×3 grid to spin the Wheel of Wishes. The WowPot! Bonus is also an option, one that offers access to a progressive jackpot – mini, minor, major, and the WowPot. The last one is the big jackpot that starts at €2 million and grows as people play it on any site around the world.
The game also offers a Power Mode button, an additional bet that enables Power Spins and increases the likelihood that the Wheel of Wishes bonus will happen.
In Development: deadmau5
Microgaming just announced a deal to partner with the musical genius of deadmau5. The artist himself will create some of the graphics and electronic tracks for the game, while Eurostar Studios will design it. The branded game will be a cube v3-inspired slot game released sometime later in 2020.
In Development: Game of Thrones
One of the most popular games in the past decade will become a new online casino branded slot in 2020. As a part of Microgaming’s longstanding relationship with HBO, which produced the Game of Thrones television series, Microgaming will release the Game of Thrones Power Stacks slot game as developed by Slingshot Studios.
The game will feature many of the leading characters and dragons from the show and take them on a search for rewards through the world of Westeros. It will be a jackpot game.
Microgaming is also working on a new Tarzan slot game. All three of the branded games will be released sometime in 2020, but attendees at the ICE London 2020 conference this week saw some previews. The expansive Microgaming exhibit delivered glances at the games that are destined to be its most popular when they are launched for public consumption later this year.
