A Happy New Year to all our readers from the entire VSO team – may 2019 be a lucky year on your favorite reels and everywhere else. Why not start by trying some of the latest game releases? Our newsletter is packed with slots from IGT, Red Tiger Gaming, Elk Studios and Play’n GO. You might find a new favorite among them.
Industry giant IGT takes us to the rugged region of the Wolf Ridge in its latest creation, although the slot is all about some of the wild creatures you could encounter in the Arctic region. Meanwhile, Play’n GO is resurrecting the Cretaceous period on Raging Rex when dinosaurs dominated the American plains. Red Tiger Gaming lets us sail the high seas on Pirate’s Plenty to bring home vast treasures, while Elk Studios brings us into the mysterious world of The Wiz for wins of up to 5,000 times our bet.
Wolf Ridge | IGT
A wintry, cold scene from the Arctic region with snowy mountains, a native village and the Northern Lights is the backdrop to a semi-translucent game window that is populated by animal creatures that you might encounter in the region. Play the slot with 30 fixed pay lines from 0.50 coins and hit a full screen of wolves in the free spins to win up to 1,000 times your bet in a single spin.
Wolf Ridge features a Prize Disk, wild substitutions and a free spins round with increased line wins. The Prize Disk is a separate horizontal reel on top of the game window containing coins wins from 2x to 70x the bet as well as bonus round triggers in the base game. The prizes move by one reel to the left on each spin. The coin win on reel three is multiplied by 3x. A wolf scatter landing on reels one, three and five will award the prize currently on top of the respective reel. Hitting a Free Spins icon on the Prize Disk will award 10 free spins for each icon.
During the free spins, the coin wins on the Prize Disk are increased from 2x up to 150x your bet. Plus coins wins on reels two and four are multiplied by 2x. Any free spins symbol collected during the round will award two or more free spins, up to a maximum of 250 free spins. The pays for the premium symbols are doubled, providing higher win potential.
Raging Rex | Play’n GO
Play’n GO takes us on a journey to the Cretaceous period, around 66 million years ago when T-Rex was the dominant creature of the animal world. At the time, an extinction event wiped out three-quarters of all living things on the planet, including the mighty dinosaur. Play the six-reel slot with 4,096 ways from 0.20 coins to score wins of up to 5,000 times your bet.
Watch in awe as the T-Rex wild symbol comes alive when he lands in a full stack on any reel from two to six to trigger the Rampage Respins. He will move by one reel leftwards on every respin, creating chances for winning combinations until he leaves the screen on the left.
Three to six meteor scatters will trigger 8 to 30 free spins, which can be retriggered indefinitely. Players will have now two choices for their bonus round – Primal Rage or Wild Hunt. In Primal Rage, a fully stacked T-Rex wild will be added to a random reel, except reel one. He will stay on the screen and move to a new reel on every free spin. In Wild Hunt, the T-Rex wilds appear as single symbols only but will have randomly a 2x or 3x multiplier attached, providing the potential for win multipliers of up to 243x if one is present on all five back reels.
Pirate’s Plenty | Red Tiger Gaming
“Avast Ye!” The pirates are sailing the high seas in search of sunken treasures. Join the hunt and bring home huge wins of up to 5,000x your bet. A feature-rich adventure awaits with a hidden treasure reel, reel-tall multiplier wilds as well as random and free spins features. Play the five-reel slot with 20 fixed pay lines from 0.20 to 100 coins.
The Treasure Reel features prominently on the right of the game window and needs to be unlocked for each bet size by hitting map symbols in the base game. The progress is saved for each bet size. Once unlocked, the game window increases to six reels and reel-tall wild bottles are added to all reels, each potentially unveiling a 1x to 5x win multiplier when they land on a spin.
A monkey can randomly appear on any spin in the base game to remove all low-value symbols from the reels. High-value symbols will drop in place while the monkey turns into a wild symbol on the last position where he collected a low-value symbol.
Ten Ocean Free Spins are awarded when minimum three scatters land on the reels. Three treasure chests are added on top of the game window. Any pirate captain symbol landing on the screen will award one key. Three keys are needed to open each chest, which will contain symbol modifiers and up to five extra free spins. Unlocking a chest will see one or two low-paying symbols being transformed into wild symbols for the remaining free spins.
The Wiz | Elk Studios
Get ready to experience the mystical powers of the wizard in the creation from Elk Studios. He will wield his magic staff to award free spins with walking dragon wilds that can unveil a win multiplier of up to 5x. Play the five-reel slot from 0.20 coins to score wins of up to 5,000x your stake.
A dragon wild landing on a spin in the base game and free spins can randomly unveil a win multiplier of 2x or 3x. More than one pay line will be added with the potential to hit win multipliers of up to 15x.
Two to five Wiz scatters in a spin will award one to 10 free spins where all four low-value symbols are transformed into the corresponding four high-value symbols. Plus, any dragon wild landing on a free spin will turn into a walking wild, keeping the initially unveiled win multiplier as it moves by one reel to the left on every respin.
