Get ready for a special announcement in this week’s newsletter. NetEnt has finally revealed the sequel to the epic Dead or Alive slot. And the good news is that they didn’t just keep the thrill of the original, but added even more features and higher win potential.
Blueprint Gaming has taken yet another epic pay mechanic and transferred it to a Megaways engine on Legacy of Ra Megaways. The name should ring some bells for seasoned slot players as to which pay mechanic that is.
And there are more exciting games being prepared for launch. Get your spray cans ready as Play’n GO is taking you on a graffiti tour through three European capitals on Cash Vandal. In turn, Skywind has taken on the challenge to bring the immensely popular Resident Evil video game to a set of slot reels on Resident Evil 6. Time to take a closer look whether they have succeeded.
Dead or Alive 2 | NetEnt
Ever since its release in 2009, Dead or Alive has been the most talked about slot in the player community, although it is a rather simple slot with just one free spins feature. But that packs a real punch as wilds become sticky in the bonus round, leading to the much celebrated wild lines. The internet is literally littered with screenshots and stories where players won 2,000x their bet and more. We have seen some going over 10,000x the stake. That is serious money, even on a small bet size. The game has achieved legendary status that is forever etched into the history of online gaming.
For years, players have asked NetEnt to create a sequel that keeps all of the thrills of the original, but adds some modern twists to the gameplay. They finally listened and slot players are now looking forward to April 24, when Dead or Alive II will go live. And indeed, NetEnt has gone to great lengths to create an authentic sequel, with more features and an insane win potential of over 100,000x your bet.
You can play the slot from as little as 0.09 coins on mobile or desktop to hit a minimum three scatters that will lead you to the feature selector screen. You can pick on each occasion from three free spins features – Train Heist, Old Saloon and High Noon Saloon. Each has 12 free spins and the well-known five extra spins, when sufficient wilds or multipliers levels land in the round.
Train Heist is a new type of bonus round without sticky wilds, but each landing on a free spin that will increase the win multiplier by 1x up to 16x. The extra spins are awarded once the maximum multiplier is hit and all remaining spins are played with the 16x multiplier.
Old Saloon resembles most the well-known free spins round with sticky wilds and a 2x win multiplier. The aim is to hit five wilds on a payline as that will award the pay for a 5OAK wilds on every remaining free spin. It has one twist though, when more than one sticky wild lands on a reel. An additional win multiplier of 2x for two sticky wilds and 3x for three sticky wilds on a reel is awarded.
High Noon Saloon is the round with the highest volatility. Any wild landing in a free spin will turn instantly into a multiplier wild of 2x for the first wild on a reel and 3x when more than one lands during the feature on the same reel.
Legacy of Ra Megaways | Blueprint Gaming
All fans of the epic “Book of…” slot and the pay mechanic with expanding pay symbols can now enjoy it on a Megaways slot. Legacy of Ra combines the two popular slot formats into a high volatility monster with up to 15,625 ways to win that can produce mega wins of up to 50,000 times your stake.
Spin the reels on desktop or mobile from just 0.10 to trigger 10 free spins with expanding pay symbols. Alternatively, you can get direct access to the bonus round by using the Ra Bonus Bet option, which will cost you 100x the base bet.
Before the round starts, one pay symbol is randomly chosen as the special symbol. On any free spin when a minimum three land across the reels, they will expand and pay the line win even if they are not on adjacent reels, and that for each way.
On the original “Book of…” slot, that was limited to a maximum 10 times the pay because of the 10 paylines of the slot. But on Legacy of Ra, that number is variable depending on how many symbols appear on a reel in a free spin.
Cash Vandal | Play’n GO
Pack your bags and spray cans as you will be travelling to three European capitals – London, Paris and Berlin – to showcase your graffiti skills on Cash Vandal. An unusual reel layout with just four reels and 10 fixed paylines might surprise you, but fear not as the game comes with a high feature frequency and a win potential of up to 5,000x your stake in the free spins round.
Start your graffiti tour on mobile or desktop from just 0.10 coins and hit the golden spray can on reel four to set off a whole range of features. Depending on the number of standard cans landing on the three front reels you will trigger a respin, one free spin with a random reel modifier, or up to 10 free spins with a selectable reel modifier, called city features.
A Gold Can alone on reel four will get you one respin for another chance to hit standard cans on the front reels. Hit one together with the Gold Can on reel four and you will be awarded one free spin and a randomly selected city feature. Land two or three standard cans with the Gold Can on reel four to trigger five and 10 free spins respectively with the choice of three city features.
Paris will have the two front reels synchronized with only 2×2 mega symbols. London will have up to nine mystery symbols painted to reveal one common symbol once the reels have stopped. Berlin will get you two or three random wilds on every free spin.
Resident Evil 6 | Skywind Group
In 2018, the Isle of Man-based game studio signed a licensing agreement with Capcom, the company behind the Resident Evil franchise, to bring the immensely popular video game to a set of slot reels. Resident Evil 6 is the début of what is to become a series of online slots featuring the heroes and zombies from the video game.
Join the four zombie hunters – Ada, Chris, Leon and Jake – on desktop or mobile from 0.25 coins and follow them on their bonus missions to hit sticky, random and stacked wilds for mighty rewards.
Ada’s Monster Hunt is a pick-and-click bonus game with multiple levels that can lead to wins of up to 200x your bet. The aim is to help Ada crack the entry code to a building on a 4×3 panel.
All other bonus missions are each a set of six free spins, which cannot be retriggered. Based on the triggering hero, they will have a specific wild modifier applied on every free spin to provide you with a better chance to hit mega wins.
Chris will rappel down from the top to turn two random reels into fully stacked wilds, while Jake takes on the mighty Ustanak monster to create two to five random wilds. In turn, Leon will shoot zombies and turn up to five into sticky wilds for the entire feature.
