From a Scottish golf course to the African Savannah and the Orient.
Online slot fans are anticipating the imminent arrival of Microgaming’s July tranche of new games, with previews indicating an interesting range of themes across three new video slots.
The Argyle Open is a 5 reel, 40 pay-line video slot with a theme centred on a famous golf course, and includes a three-level bonus feature.
This game’s outstanding graphics are redolent with golfers, clubs and trophies, all backed by an entertaining slew of big slot features such as Scatters, Wilds, Free Spins, Multipliers and an absorbing interactive game-within-the-game in the form of a 3 stage golf tournament.
The tournament is triggered by 3 or more Scatter symbols – the putting hole – which allows the player to select a surrogate pro from a selection of five to play the tournament. On each trigger of the Bonus, the player moves on to the next par of the lush green Argyle course. The interactive element in the game allows the player to control the actions and clubs used by the pro, and the objective is to sink the putt with as few strokes as possible in order to get at those Free Spins.
In the Drive and Fairway Bonus the player can achieve great prizes for the distance travelled by the ball, and in the Putt Bonus, the player chips on to the green, and the closer the ball gets to the hole, the more re-triggering Free Spins – up to 20 – are awarded….and they all carrying multipliers between 2x and 4x.
For really fortunate players who manage a hole-in-one there’s a special prize of 20 Free Spins with a 5x Multiplier.
The theme in Lion’s Pride transports the player to the wide African savannah where the king of the predators holds sway. This 5 reel video slot has 100 pay-lines and offers online gamblers a great mix of Scatters, stacked Wilds, Free Spins with significant Multipliers and a Gamble feature, all contributing to achievable rewards of up to 12 500.00 in the base game and a staggering 125 000.00 in free spins on a max bet of only 10.00.
3, 4 or 5 scatters trigger a very generous Free Spins feature in which up to 25 free spins can be won, each carrying the possibility of multipliers ranging from 2x to 10x. The game also has stacked Wilds and a Gamble feature where the correct card prediction can double or quadruple winnings.
The luxurious Oriental theme of the 5 reel, 40 pay-line Dragon Lady video slot features exquisitely detailed and delicately coloured fans, lanterns, jewellery boxes, gold and silver ingots and even the tastefully tattooed Dragon Lady herself.
The game offers a second screen bonus game, Free Spins, generous Multipliers, three different Scatter symbols and the Wild Dragon Lady, who not only helps players to build winning combinations, but is on hand in the bonus game too.
3 or more Scatters – fans, dragons or lanterns – in any stop position on any reel triggers the magical Dragon Bonus in which players are given 4 opportunities to match caps from a selection of nine. The rewards are five different Multipliers ranging from 2x to a massive 100x.
The beautifully crafted Jewellery Box is another winning opportunity when it appears in any stop position on reels 1 and 5, triggering a potentially lucrative Free Spins feature in which 10, 15 or 20 free spins are awarded, each carrying the potential to double the player’s winnings.
