Queens, goddesses, monks and a legendary horse jockey are at the center of attention in this week’s newsletter. The games they feature on are creations from some of the finest game studios such as Inspired Gaming, Play’n GO, Pariplay and NetEnt. The slots come with unseen pay mechanics, surprising reel modifiers and high win potential. Reason enough to take a closer look.
Inspired Gaming brings Goddess of the Amazon to the casino lobbies with two progressive jackpots and a free spins round with tumbling wilds. In turn, Play’n GO surprises us with a 3×3 game window on Queen’s Day Tilt that pays for vertical and horizontal combinations of three symbols.
Pariplay’s Xi You Ji follows the pilgrimage of the monk Xuanzang and his three disciples as they go in search of the sacred scroll on a set of five slot reels with collectible features and four fixed jackpots. NetEnt signed a deal in 2018 with champion jockey Peter Scudamore to create its first ever sports-branded slot and is now ready to release Scudamore’s Super Stakes just in time for the final of the 2018/19 National Hunt season.
Goddess of the Amazon | Inspired Gaming
Travel deep into the Amazon rainforest on your quest to find the goddess – she could reward you with one of two progressive jackpots after Inspired Gaming turned its 2015 creation into a progressive slot. The silver jackpot starts at 10,000 coins while the gold jackpot has a seed value of 100,000 credits.
With the conversion to HTML5, the game can now be played on mobile or desktop from 0.20 to 500 coins. Goddess of the Amazon comes with wild substitutions, mystery symbols, and a free spins round with walking wilds. The jackpots in turn are won when five silver symbols appear in the base game or five gold symbols appear in the free spins.
Three to five scatters will trigger 8, 16 or 30 free spins. Any wild landing on a free spin will stay on the screen and move vertically down by one position on the following spins until it disappears at the bottom. Additionally, five coins are shown below the game window. They spin together with the reels and five extra free spins are awarded when all five are flipped, no limits.
Queen’s Day Tilt | Play’n GO
As slots such as Hugo GOAL have shown, there can be exciting games with a 3×3 format instead of the usual 5×3 reel set. Especially when they come with some awesome features and high win potential. Queen’s Day Tilt has a special symbol drop mechanic that will award wins for a minimum two adjacent symbols, whether horizontally or vertically.
Don’t judge the slot by its size as it packs a poweful punch with sky-high volatility and a maximum win of 5,000x your bet. Play it on mobile or desktop from as little as 0.10 coins to see two random features – The Ruler and The Tilt Strike – and empty the grid to enter the Queen’s Day Free Spins.
Five free spins are awarded when all low-value symbols are removed from the reels and a multiplier that starts at 2x increases every time a win with both knight symbols occurs on a symbol drop. A losing spin will automatically trigger The Ruler feature, while emptying the grid again on a free spin will retrigger the round – indefinitely.
Xi You Ji | Pariplay
You are invited to join the monk Xuanzang and his three disciples – Sun Wukong, known as the monkey king, Zhu Bajie, a half-pig, half-human character, and Sha Wujing, an exiled warrior general – on their pilgrimage to find sacred scrolls. Collect wins to illuminate the red lanterns and trigger extra features on each level. Reach the top level and you will win one of the five fixed jackpots.
Play the slot on desktop or mobile from 0.25 coins to score wins in excess of 1,000x your bet on a single spin. Triggering the Sacred Journey Bonus game will lead you to a 5×5 grid where you aim to find the three disciples hidden under the 25 tiles. Progress from row to row to collect coins wins up to 5x your bet for each stone and find all three to be rewarded with a extra prize of 1,000x your bet.
The lanterns play a special role in this game. Every win on a spin will gradually light them up and you will get one of three rewards for completing one lantern – a win multiplier up to 12x for the current spin, up to five sticky wilds for up to five spins, or up to 20 free spins.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes | NetEnt
In 2018, NetEnt successfully secured a deal with one of Britain’s greats in horse racing with the result that Peter Scudamore has given his name and voice to a set of five slot reels with 20 pay lines. As expected, it revolves around horse racing with Peter’s Classic Cup, a Bet Slip side game and random horseshoe wilds.
Entrance to the race track on desktop or mobile starts at 0.10 with a win potential of up to 1,242x your stake in the Bet Slip side game and in excess of 5,000x your bet in a single bonus round. Watch out for the golden horseshoes randomly appearing at the start of a spin. Up to five wilds are placed on random reel positions to increase the chance to hit a win on the current spin.
Activate the Bet Slip side game by clicking on the icon at the right of the game window. The aim is to collect a selected pay symbol a set amount of times over a fixed number of spins. All pay symbols from 10 to the Scudamore wild can be chosen. The more valuable the symbols, the higher the cost for the side bet, which will be deducted only once from the balance, but also increases prizes.
Get scatters on reels one, three and five to trigger Peter’s Classic Cup. You will get to pick one of four horses, each returning between 50x to 5,000x your bet. Scoring a win with the horse symbol or the associated low-value symbol will advance the horses in four steps. First to cross the finish line will be the champion. All line wins during the feature are added to any potential bonus win if the player has chosen the winning horse.
