Top 6 New Microgaming Online Slot Releases in October

The start of a new month means one thing to online casino slot game fans: the release dates of the latest and greatest new games to hit the Canadian casinos online.

Microgaming facilitates the releases that come from the great minds at smaller, independent game developers around the world. That larger global platform enables up-and-coming studios to place their games in some of the most popular online casinos.

October will deliver new games from Slingshot Studios, Just For the Win, Pulse 8 Studios, Gameburger Studios, All41 Studios, and Gold Coin Studios.

While there are no video samples for any of these games yet, we will preview the highlights and main features.

  1. African Legends: October 6

This online video slot from Slingshot Studios delivers a new take on the African game theme. The lions and elephants, rhinos and boars are made of stone on the grid, a change from the animated versions. In this one, the background changes with the weather, delivering a beautiful backdrop for the game.

African Legends a progressive online slot on a 5×3 grid with 243 ways to win. It offers a 94.92% RTP (return-to-player) with medium volatility. The base game offers a maximum win of up to 1,200x the bet, but there is also a progressive jackpot that starts at $50,000.

The features in this game go beyond the jackpot:

  • Free Spins (12-20)
  • Rolling Reels Multiplier Trail (up to 10x during free spins, can lead to Major Jackpot win)

  1. Western Gold: October 13

  1. 777 Royal Wheel: October 15

  1. Wanted Outlaws: October 27

This is not just another Wild West game. All41 Studios created Wanted Outlaws with Nobleways, resulting in a massive 3,125 betways. The Western music plays over the town, with its orange sky and crisp graphics. The gunshots ping off of the symbols, making the entire theme work.

Just before the end of October, Gold Coin Studios will release its second slot game. The relatively new company released Arthur’s Gold in May and is preparing to push Aquatic Treasures to Canadian online casino players at the end of this month. Set under water, the background and bubbles deliver a very undersea experience, complete with a soothing soundtrack and sea creatures swimming in the distance. The dolphin, though, greets the players up close from time to time.

The graphics are captivating in Aquatic Treasures, a 5×3 game with 20 paylines. The RTP is 96.02% and the volatility level is a medium level. Players can bet up to $100 per spin, and the max win is 357.25x the stake.

  • Free Spins (8, extra wilds)
  • Multipliers (2x-25x during free spins)
  • Double Up (option to double-or-nothing each win)
