Microgaming’s slot game production line shows no signs of slowing down following the announcement of 5 new slot games in May. For the first time that Gamingslots is aware of, these releases will be available across all desktop and handheld devices.
The first new title is the aquatic-themed Ariana, a 5 reel, 25 payline slot. The game features both stacked and expanding symbols during the base game and free spins. The Ariana symbol acts as the wild, whilst the starfish is the scatter symbol. Three or more scatter symbols trigger the free spins feature, awarding 15 free spins, with the retriggers available.

Big Chef is a 5 reel, 15 payline game, which might appeal to foodies. Wilds and scatters are present in the base game, as well as a single free spin feature. The main free spins mode is triggered by three or more menu scatter symbols, awarding 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier.
Furthermore, the game introduces a brand new element, Rising Wilds™. During free spins, when a stove wild symbol lands on the screen it will rise to the row above on each spin, creating an upward trail of wilds. On reaching the top-most row, the wilds will hold, spinning out on the next win.
River of Riches™ has a tomb raider or Indiana Jones feel to it. This 5 reel, 25 payline slot combines free spins with fixed wild symbols. The free spins symbol holds the key to big wins; if just two symbols land on the reels, a win is granted to the player. When three or more appear, the free spins mode is triggered, delivering 10 free spins with up to four fixed wild symbols on reels two and four.
Penguin Splash™ is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot involves a rather bizarre sport Microgaming have concocted: A penguin high diving contest.
The game features a very special free spins mode. Collecting the penguin scatter symbols gives the starting signal for penguins to jump off their diving platforms. The more jumps, the more free spins awarded; each penguin adds five free spins to the pool. All winnings earned during free spins have a 2x multiplier.
Microgaming has also had a busy month with mobile – alongside Ariana – Cool Wolf, Break Away and Liquid Gold launch on the mobile platform in HTML5. As does Rabcat’s popular game Dragon’s Myth™. All games went live on Wednesday 6th May.
Talking about the new releases, Mike Hebden, Head of Casino Games at Microgaming, said: “There’s plenty to look forward to in May! With different themes, game engines, and features, we have something that will suit everyone.”
Alongside the new releases Microgaming have remvamped popular jungle-themed slot Adventure Palace, recreating it in HD. The slot now has modernised functionality to bring it in line with Microgaming’s contemporary games. However, the game stays true to the original game engine and maths.
