New Game of the Week: Tweethearts from Microgaming
Microgaming is on a roll, releasing yet another innovative slot game. It put Tweethearts out into the wider online casino market last week.
Just For The Win developed Tweethearts exclusively for Microgaming, complete with an amusing theme, bright colors and crisp graphics, and numerous features to keep players involved.
With everything from double symbols to free spins, the features give players plenty of exciting action to follow. A first look at the game shows lovebirds, but a deeper dive into Tweethearts shows a detailed game with many ways to win.
Just For The Win CEO Johan Persson calls Tweethearts a “tropical lovebird-themed game” with win potential of up to 2,500x the initial bet. “The action never stops,” he said.
Microgaming Global Operations Director James Buchanan spoke of the 15th game of the company’s partnership with Just For The Win. “Tweethearts combines colourful graphics, an idyllic atmosphere and a serene soundtrack to create a truly unique and charismatic slot.” He noted that it appeals to players of all levels because of the exciting features.
This 5-reel slot has 17 paylines with a maximum payout of 2,522x the bet.
Speaking of bets, they start at $0.10 and increase to $100.00 per spin.
Players can use the autospin function for 10, 25, 50, or 100 spins. There is also a quick spin function, and they can turn the sound off to mute the tweeting birds and fun spring music.
Double symbols are a feature of Tweethearts, and they simply appear as two symbols on top of each other in a single square. They count as two separate symbols for payout purposes.
There are three types of wilds in Tweethearts. The regular wild substitutes for most symbols on the board, while double wilds substitute for all double symbols except free spin symbols. Lucky wilds appear only in the free spins bonus round.
The payouts for the symbols are as follows:
- Wild = 300x for 10, 3x for 5
- Tweethearts = 300x for 10, 3x for 5
- Pink/orange lovebirds = 150x for 10, 2x for 5
- Purple lovebirds = 125x for 10, 1.5x for 5
- Blue/green lovebirds = 100x for 10, 1x for 5
- A, K, Q, or J = 50x for 10, 0.8x for 5
- Lucky wild = 3x for 5
How to Play Tweethearts
The reels are outlined in intertwined flowers and leaves on a background of a forest. The unique setup of the 3×5 board puts a new spin – so to speak – on the traditional slot game. The middle line is the double line, inside which normal symbols appear as doubles.
As mentioned, the wilds play a significant role in increasing wins. The lucky wilds only appear during free spins, but the wilds and double wilds can show up anywhere.
There is also a random wild feature, one that can be triggered at any time during base gameplay. A number of wilds – between two and six – will appear in any position and increase wins. This may include double wilds on the double lucky line.
Players will also be looking for free spins, which can appear as single free spins symbols or double ones. Five or more free spins symbols anywhere on the reels activate the free spins. Five symbols garner a minimum of 10 free spins, while any in excess of five earn an extra spin for each one over five.
For every lucky wild that lands during the bonus round, an extra spin is awarded. And those lucky wild symbols turn into double spots for the rest of the free spins. Instead of just the middle row doubling symbols, every position seeing a lucky wild also turns into a place where symbols are doubled for the rest of that bonus round.
Where to Play Tweethearts
The absolute best part of Tweethearts is the double symbols and random wild feature.
Considering Microgaming is the most popular online casino games provider in the world, it is no surprise that Tweethearts is available on the three top-ranked Canadian casinos: All Slots Casino, Play Amo Casino, and Jackpot City.
Aurora Wilds Already Released
Just before Tweethearts was released, Microgaming released its first game from its partnership with Neon Valley Studios. That slot game, Aurora Wilds, is a 5-reel game with 10 paylines.
Aurora Wilds is a jackpot game, complete with a mini, minor, major, and grand jackpot. The minimum grand jackpot is going to be $20,000, but it increases with action from players around the world.
The game shows the majestic display of the Northern Lights in everything from winning paylines to respins. The colors are almost as breathtaking as the sky’s own lights.
Some of the features in Aurora Wilds include bi-directional paylines, respins, expanding wilds, and of course, the jackpot wheel. Set against a mystical soundtrack, the scatters and wilds light up the screen with win potential.
