Book of Atem
Microgaming’s first release of the new decade promises to take players on a journey through the mists of time to Ancient Egypt. Book of Atem features excellent graphics and an immersive soundtrack, which together conjure up a magical Egyptian setting. This slot consists of a classic 5 reels and 10 paylines. Players will want to keep their eyes peeled for the magic book, as it acts as a useful Scatter symbol as well as a Wild symbol. Landing 3 or more Scatter symbols triggers Free Spins, offering players more opportunities to win. Expanding symbols spice up the Free Spins, boosting player odds even further.
According to Microgaming, Book of Atem boasts an “excellent win potential up to 5,000x the initial bet”. This spellbinding slot has been adapted for play on desktop and mobile devices. All41 Studios has developed this title exclusively for Microgaming and it is available to play from January 7th.
Double Lucky Line
Microgaming is due to follow up it’s initial January release with Double Lucky Line on January 14th. This time, Microgaming has worked with Just For The Win to produce a feature-heavy game, centered on an Eastern theme. The game will initially be made available on an exclusive basis to Microgaming operators. 5 reels and 17 paylines set the stage for a slot full of Random Wilds and Free Spins. Lucky Wilds take players a step further, triggering extra double symbols throughout the reels.
This game frequently offers players twice the luck, thanks to its Double Lucky Line feature. This unique mechanism means that only double symbols will land on the game’s center reel. Pairs of dragons, frogs and turtles, amongst other symbols will boost the potential for big wins, even during normal gameplay. Double Lucky Line can be played across all devices.
This exciting title makes the best of a tried and tested video slot theme, the safari. African Quest plays on 4 reels and a whopping 1,024 payways. That is good news for players as simply put, it means that there are loads of ways to win. Microgaming fans may recognize this game’s distinctive Hyperspins mechanic. It also featured in another popular Microgaming classic – Break da Bank Again Respin.
Rhinos, Giraffes, Elephants and Lions are represented in the symbols, lending the game a wild theme. A tense soundtrack helps to ramp up the excitement even further. Kubwa the lion is the creature to look out for, as this stacked symbol pays out generously. Landing 3 or more Scatter symbols award Free Spins. During these, players are offered the chance to pick a Free Spin and Multiplier option. Wild symbols will then act as multipliers of up to 64x. African Quest will be available to play from January 21st.
The Incredible Balloon Machine
Players will have to wait until the end of the month for this intriguing title to come out, as The Incredible Balloon Machine is set to be released on January 28th.
