ISLE OF MAN – This month Microgaming has teamed up with one of the world’s biggest names in electronic music, deadmau5, to create a game that blends dance music, gaming, and visual entertainment. Meanwhile, there are some great new exclusive titles from the company’s ever-growing network of independent studios, as it continues to mine the best talent in the online gaming space.
Now available to operators on Microgaming’s content platform, deadmau5 is the result of an exclusive collaboration between Microgaming and the Canadian superstar DJ, producer and performer, real name Joel Zimmerman. The deadmau5 game is a cascading 5-reel video slot with 243 ways to win. It shares the same high-energy, frenetic intensity as its namesake’s best tracks, which feature heavily, along with some cool music visualisations. With Rolling Reels™ and Drop the Wilds mechanics, it’s high on features, heavy on the beats.
deadmau5 may be a dance music legend, but Microgaming is also partial to some ancient Roman legends, which is why it dives to the ocean depths on 17 November in search of Neptune’s Riches (Just For The Win). An ocean of wilds awaits the player in this highly volatile 5-reel slot. Landing wilds on reels two, three and four triggers the Rising Wild Respin. Rising Wilds move up one position every spin and can have a multiplier of up to 10x. Meanwhile, three scatters will trigger the Walking Wild Free Spins feature. Here, a permanent stack of wilds walks across the reels, absorbing other wilds to increase multipliers for massive win potential.
We stay in Ancient Rome for Microgaming’s next title, Augustus (Neon Valley Studios), where players mint coins for the titular Roman emperor in this stunning, highly volatile new slot. Mastering the coinage of the Empire earns players Full Wild Reels. Meanwhile, Augustus and his high Praetorian Guard appear stacked one, two, or three high for truly epic wins. On reaching the inner sanctum of the Temple of Augustus, players may choose up to one, two, or three random Wild Reels for up to 25 free spins in the Volatility Pick Bonus Feature. Augustus goes live in all its imperial glory on 24 November.
Another visually stunning game is Tiki Reward (All41Studios), launching exclusively on the Microgaming content platform on 10 November. This 50-payline slot draws on the fabulous, colourful sculptures of human figures, or Tiki, found in many Polynesian cultures. The reels are populated by Tiki Wilds, which substitute for any symbol except scatters and can act as multipliers. But that’s not all. Any three Tiki Wilds of the same colour award the corresponding Tiki Jackpot and the Gold Tiki Jackpot is 1,000 times the total bet.
Microgaming revisits a classic with Reel Gems Deluxe (Alchemy Gaming), six years after the original Reel Gems first hit the Microgaming platform. Now available exclusively to Microgaming customers, fans of the original are in for a treat. With oodles of Hyperspins™, radiant spins, giant symbols and unlimited retriggers, this is like Reel Gems in overdrive with the amp turned way up to 11. There’s escalating win potential with matching stacked high symbols on reels one and two, starting up to 40x per spin, while the retrigger symbol adds five, seven or 20 free spins and levels up the Radiant Trail for maximum win potential of 1,000x per spin.
Next up on 26 November, Microgaming turns up the heat on a true casino classic with Multifire Roulette. A red-hot twist on traditional European roulette, the game is the latest innovative multi-platform table game release from Switch Studios. Players placing any straight-up bet will be eligible for a magnificent Multifire multiplier, which may reward up to 500 times their stake. Packed with fiery visuals, explosive sounds, and advanced features, Multifire Roulette strikes a match under the betting table to unleash powerful win potential.
Going live exclusively on the Microgaming platform from 19 November is Real Baccarat with Sarati, the latest groundbreaking release from cinematic game producer Real Dealer Studios. Created using the same innovative techniques as the Real Roulette series, this RNG game stars the ever-charming Sarati, who hosts the gameplay with incredible realism and a winning smile.
Also ready to charm players this month is Microgaming’s newest Christmas caper, A Tale of Elves (Aurum Signature Studios), a festive 243-ways slot packed with stacked wilds and free spins.
Microgaming is also set to add a slew of non-exclusive games from its network of content partners throughout November, including the entire back catalogue of esports betting and entertainment media company UNIKRN on 11 November. Meanwhile, expect some serious headbanging with Monsters of Rock (Storm Gaming), which is now live, plus 1980s retro with Neon Pyramid (Inspired).
