Microgaming’s many exciting releases planned for January
During the holidays, many of us were taking a much-deserved break from work and spending more time with our families. However, Microgaming was busy creating new content which resulted in many brand new online slots releases.
Aside from making their own original content, Microgaming has joined many studios in order to provide punters around the world with brand new games. Some of the games have already been released, while others are due to debut in upcoming few days.
Let’s check out what Microgaming has in store for the month of January:
For all Megaways mechanic connoisseurs, the software supplier has prepared not only one, but two brand new titles that will certainly become player favourites. The first Microgaming game to launch in 2021 was Shamrock Holmes Megaways™ Slot, developed by All41 Studios. It debuted on the 5th of January and it has already amassed a lot of attention from players. Shamrock Holmes Megaways™ is a highly volatile 6-reel slot with a major maximum payout and the world’s most famous leprechaun detective as the main character.
Another Microgaming-exclusive release from All41 Studios is expected to be released later in January. Forgotten Island Megaways™ debuts on the 26th of January and takes you on a journey to a mysterious island where you will meet a huge prehistoric gorilla. This thrilling slot brings various new features to the table, such as the compelling Kong Spin feature!
We‘ll start off with the titles that have already been released: The Bounty Slot from Snowborn Games and Foxpot Slot designed by Foxium. The first one takes you to the Wild West for an incredible Spaghetti Western adventure. Your task as a player is to hunt down outlaws whose mugshots are portrayed on the reels and collect six matching wanted posters, as this is the exact number of posters that will get you a jackpot! Snowborn Games even went the extra mile and added engaging cutaway video sequences and paired them with a wonderful soundtrack.
Foxpot Slot however, with only three reels and a single active line, may seem one dimensional at first, but it is actually anything but. This is because of the Fox Wheel which takes over the screen and works as three bonus wheels all in one: the Money Award, the multiplier and the respin mode, each with a different trigger. No spoilers here, but we will simply inform you that the three possible jackpots could possibly increase your wins up to 10,000x!
Golden Stallion™ Ultraways™, which is set to be released on the 14th of January, comes from Northern Lights Gaming and is the very first release from the studio to be distributed by Microgaming. This is yet another January release that takes players on a trip to the Old West. This title is full of free spins features and, as its name implies, the incredible Ultraways™ mechanic that offers as much as 196,608 ways to win!
Hyper Strike by Gameburger Studios will be launching on the 19th of January. This explosive title comes together with 20 paylines and some of the boldest visuals we have seen in the industry in a while. The fact that the studio scored a funky soundtrack is truly the cherry on top for this one. This is a scatter-oriented game. It’s all about the scatters here: they can appear anywhere on the reels and bring you sweet cash prizes up to 2,000x your stake.
Finally, January 20 will see the release of Neko Games’ Pachinko, a video bingo game that draws on the colourful pachinko parlors in Japan. Microgaming’s version of the popular pinball-slot game provides you with a chance to hunt for prizes that are hiding behind Maneki Nekos, the famous beckoning cat figurine that is believed to bring good luck.
But hang on, that’s not all!
