software developer Microgaming adds four new games to its line-up this (January) month, including a new progressive jackpot slot, its latest video slot, and the latest development in its Level-Up video poker series.
The popular Mega Moolah progressive heads the list in a new and high revving iteration, dubbed MEGA MOOLAH 5 REEL DRIVE, featuring an American car racing theme for the big-win progressive jackpot game.
Most online gamblers are familiar with Mega Moolah, which has paid out millions since its introduction; Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive is the same game on turbocharger - packed with all the action on which its reputation has been built, along with the later additions of the 4 tier jackpots and a totally new 5x multiplier booster.
Players who hit the major feature on this 5 reel, 15 pay-line slot go on to spin the 20 position Jackpot Wheel, taking them to Mega, Major, Minor or Mini jackpot wins, and rewarding combinations in the game can be put together with the Wild, Scatter, Multiplier and up to 10 Free Spins with a 5x multiplier features.
The Mega Jackpot can deliver wins of at least a million dollars on a maximum bet of $15; the next level down is the Major, which starts at $10 000 followed by the Minor level at $100 and the consolation prize at the Mini level of at least $10.
The heroic era of the Arctic explorers is the theme for Microgaming's next release - a 5 reel 25 pay-line video slot branded POLAR EXPLORER. Supercool in every respect, the game offers Scatters, Wilds, Free Spins, spins-within-free-spins and a new second re-spin feature, topped off with a double or quadruple your money in a Gamble feature.
The graphics present a backdrop of the frozen white wastes of the Arctic, with a rugged explorer, his faithful Husky dog team and the tools of the trade, from a compass and an ice-pick to the icebreaker that brought these intrepid adventurers to the icy continent.
Three Huskies on the reels and the player collects 10 Free Spins which deliver a 2x Multiplier to boost pay-line wins and spicing up the action is the added advantage of more free spins that can be generated within the Free Spins. That's not all - in a new feature triggered when two Huskies appear on the reels, this game holds the reels where the dogs appear and then gives a further opportunity for success by re-spinning the remaining reels with a 1x multiplier. That can start another 10 spin bonanza for the fortunate.
Helping players build more winning combinations is the Explorer symbol, which acts as the Wild in the game, and providing a final chance for some true gambling action, Microgaming has added a Gamble feature where players who correctly choose colour and suit can double or quadruple their winnings.
With the right combination of bets and good fortune, Polar Explorer can deliver a top prize of GBP 30 000 in the base game and a bank-boosting GBP 60 000 in the abundant Free Spins.
The glittering attraction of gold has motivated Mankind through the ages in its search for wealth, power and beauty, and the valuable metal has lost none of its appeal in the 21st century, where Microgaming has combined online gambling with the pull of the precious metal in a 5 reel, 20 pay-line video slot titled LIQUID GOLD.
The game offers Wilds, Scatters, Multipliers and Free Spins, all wrapped in a vibrantly coloured theme. Check out the stacked ingots and the white-hot crucibles turning solid metal into pure, flowing gold, and build the right combinations using the Wild and Scatter symbols to trigger the popular Free Spin feature, where up to 10 free spins can deliver 2x multiplier boosts to the winning line. A maximum bet can produce a payback of GBP 25 000 in the base game, and a worthwhile total in Free Spins up to GBP 67 470.
The latest, and fourth, addition to Microgaming's Multi Level Power Poker series, branded JOKER POKER LEVEL UP POKER, completes the January games line-up.
