Top 10 slots games from Microgaming for 2012
We tested out what slot games software giant Microgaming has to offer and came up with ten winners to get you spinning
With high profile online entertainment software providers like Microgaming, the only constant is change. New games are constantly being added to Microgaming’s repertoire of hundreds of games. However, there are a few casino games online which have stood the test of 2012 and have remained popular even in the capricious and ever-changing world of the internet. Here, we rounded up the top ten most popular Microgaming slots this year.
One which should come as no surprise is Thunderstruck. A unique and sophisticated video slot with the unique theme of Norse mythology and the hero gods of Asgard, which predated and cashed in on the Hollywood hype caused by the movie Thor. The game is a 5 reel slot game with a generous 9 paylines, which have seen man a Microgaming player win thousands. It’s intrigue and potential winnings lie in the plentiful bonuses for gamers, including Muliplier, Scatter and Wild symbols and a Free Spins bonus and Gamble feature. Be especially enchanted by the mighty Thor, who when landed on acts as a Wild and Multiplier symbol where the payout of any combination is doubled.
Superbly popular at its release last year and having lost none of its momentum is Immortal Romance. The storyline is a darkly delicious eternal love quadrangle between a witch, a charming rake, a vampire and the beautiful mortal who falls in love with him. The game lavishes on the player, with a bonus round for each of the four protagonists and the intriguing Chamber of Spins, which appears when 3 or more Lion Door Knockers appear in the reels. Within this feature, there are 4 bonus features which are opened as you play along. Another is the appropriately named Wild Desire symbol, which can be triggered by the player any time and makes all 5 reels turn wild. With these bonuses and more, plus an engrossing story as twisty and engrossing as love itself, we can see why it’s romanced half the online gaming community already.
Karate Pig is a far more light-hearted slot, but the potential wins are nothing to sneeze at. A 5 reel with a massive 40 paylines and Wild, Scatter and Free Spins features, plus a rather lucrative bonus round, this is a game you can seriously win on. Aside from that, Karate Pig is a pleasant surprise in that it has impressive graphics and animation and an addictive soundtrack, all allowing you to experience one of the oldest martial arts in a novel and fun way.
A very different 5 reel is Riviera Riches, for the gamer with a taste for the finer things in life. The slot game is designed to hearken back to the golden age of casino glamour: Monaco in the 1950s. Feast your eyes on a game backdrop and symbols which include Rolls Royces, champagne, piles of money and elegant ladies dripping in diamonds. The colours and layout reflect the iconic Monacan green tables, while the wild, scatter symbol, multiplier and free spin features promise to make at least a few millionaires. The game is unique in that, as a casino game about casino games, it has thought to include elements of other beloved games, such as Roulette in the Roulette Bonus feature, to create a whole casino experience inside one slot game. Richest of all? It comes with a maximum jackpot win of $15,000!
Maybe it’s the coins everywhere or the title, but Gold Factory is a slot game which makes the player feel they may leave rolling in some dough of their own. Gold is everywhere, on conveyor belts and down chutes in the ‘factory’ to various forms of transportation such as on trains and in hot air balloons. The game has 5 reels, 50 paylines, and a maximum jackpot of 7,500 coins. A bonus round set in the factory’s boiler room allows the player the chance to choose 4 of these hoppers to win prizes and tokens up to 10 to 35 free spins with doubled wins. With bets able to go up to a monstrous 1000 coins, one can really get rich on this one.
If you’re a Darkhorse comics junkie looking to experience one of your favourite characters in a new way, you will love Microgaming’s Hell Boy online slot game. The potential jackpot is Hell Boy-sized, with a maximum payout of 10 000 coins. Getting there will be a pleasure too, as there are over 37 ways to win. Wisely, the game has steered clear of the rather disappointing Hell Boy movies, and instead has comic book-styled graphics and all the characters from the original comic, such as Liz Sherman, Professor Trevor Brutenholm, Johann Krause, Abe Sapien and, of course, Hell Boy. There are Wild, Scatter and Gamble features, but most intriguing is the Underworld bonus game, a four-level bonus feature where players have to seek out rewards and rescue fellow team members, braving the dark dangers of the Underworld and its hellish beasts en route. If you can help Hell Boy complete all four levels he will be allowed to reach the Chamber of Fire to get the added rewards of the Relic of Power, earning you major rewards for your bravery. All in all, this is an engrossing slot game with a better storyline than most and a great way to fall back in love with everyone’s favourite demon.
One which does not need any explaining is the eternal Classic Blackjack Gold Series, which is an adaptation of the favourite table game, and loses none of its magic translated online, with potential winnings from Microgaming just as generous as those one might find in a casino.
Taking inspiration from British myth and legend is Great Griffin, a new one from Microgaming based around the magical beast that is part eagle part lion and, online, all winnings. All the elements one loves about stories of old from the British Isles, including swords, magicians and beautiful ladies. All the more magical is the impressive 50 paylines and as much as 15 free spins or a x10 Multiplier. The powerful Griffin himself acts as the Wild symbol, and he substitutes most other symbols and can earn you as much as 5000 coins.
If you are all about winning, and want as much chance as possible to cash out with much more than you cashed in with, Cashapillar may well be your choice. It’s cute graphics and Disney-esque bugs belie the true reason for the game’s success: with a whopping 100 paylines and more Wild symbols than you can shake a stick at, a winning combination is almost inevitable and happens frequently, with the game often mentioned in Microgaming casinos’ weekly winners’ pages. Generosity abounds, and a player can even win as much as 1000 coins ona single turn, with the profitable Cashapillar symbol. All in all, this is a sweet game, usually with an even sweeter ending.
One especially for the ladies, Ladies Nite is an infectious, ‘girls just wana have fun’ themed romp, decked out in the neon colours, cocktails and gorgeous accessories that sum up a great night out with your girlfriends. A standard 5 Reel and 9 Payline Video Slot, the game also sports a host of features and bonuses, including Scatter, Multiplier, Wild and Free Spins bonuses, with a simple bonus game of guessing the suit of a card meaning that winning is extra easy – and the jackpot is as much as 1000 coins.
