This week, we take some exotic trips on the hunt for great new slot releases.
AGS are in the Orient as they adapt their popular land-based Fu Nan Fu Nu for the online market, while Ainsworth go deep into Africa with King of the Jungle. Can you find the wild gorillas and bag the jackpot?
Finally, Red Tiger Gaming and Quickspin are going old-school with a 2019 twist. Red Tiger’s Mega Rise takes the classic online fruit machine and adds cool features like the rising multiplier.
And multipliers feature in Quickspin’s eighties-inspired Prime Zone slot, too. Soak up a Miami sunset as you trigger the Prime Zone bonus for big wins.
It’s looking like a hot summer with these new online slots. Let’s slip on our shades and take a closer look.
Fu Nan Fu Nu | AGS
If you thought Playtech were the only software developers going big on Asian-themed slots at the moment, think again. AGS are right in the mix with their Fu Nan Fu Nu slot.
Fu Nan Fu Nu, which translates as “Lucky Boy, Lucky Girl” in English, started out life as a popular land-based slot that used the AGS PowerXStream format. Luckily for online players, the same mechanics have been maintained for the online version.
AGS have managed to squeeze the same game screens from the land-based version of Fu Nan Fu Nu into this online adaptation. While that means the reels only take up a third of the game screen, it’s not too hard to follow the action.
Fu Nan Fu Nu has a funky free spins bonus where players have three options. You can choose 15 free spins on a standard 3×5 set of reels, or go for 10 spins on a 4×5 reel set. Finally, you can opt for 5 free games on a 5×5 reel grid.
The Jackpot Pick bonus, meanwhile, is triggered when a wild lands anywhere on the reels. Pick from 12 objects on the screen and match three jackpot icons to win the corresponding prize. There are four progressives to win: the Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand.
If you know and love the land-based version of Fu Nan Fu Nu, you’re sure to love this simple online adaptation.
King of the Jungle | Ainsworth
Aussie slots giant, Ainsworth, are back with a ferocious online slot that has already been a hit at land-based casinos.
King of the Jungle is set in a mysterious African landscape where snakes, gold ornaments, and fearsome gorillas await.
The game features three separate wild symbols, all of which replace other symbols to form winning combinations. The 3x and 5x wilds apply multipliers to any winning line you make.
The highlights of this volatile slot are the respins and progressive jackpots. The Second Chance Respin is activated when two gorilla scatters appear anywhere. The reels containing gorillas are held and all other reels respin one more time.
If you hit three gorilla symbols, you trigger free spins. During the bonus round, if the Gold Gorilla Eyes symbol is seen in all positions on a reel, you win one of four progressive jackpots: Mini, Minor, Major, and Grand. The higher your total stake is, the better your chances of triggering the bonus prizes will be.
With an RTP of 94.09% and some high volatility, this new action-packed slot will definitely have fans. Have a play for free and see what you think.
Mega Rise | Red Tiger Gaming
Red Tiger Gaming recently introduced a well-received oriental-themed slot in the shape of Mega Dragon. It featured lots of action, big multipliers, and decent jackpots.
Mega Rise has “classic slot” written all over it. As in games like the new Prime Zone by Quickspin, the reels are designed with a cool 3D feel. It makes you feel like you’re playing a classic slot or fruit machine.
There are just the seven basic icons on the reels. Land three 7 symbols on the payline, and you can win a prize worth 75x your stake.
And if you’re a fan of multipliers, look out for the Rising Multiplier bar. Symbols are selected at random to become multiplier symbols. The multiplier starts off at 2x, and if you hit a winning combo with one of these symbols, it rises to 3x.
This continues as new symbols are elected, with the prize multiplier rising by 1x each time. It is possible to reach a multiplier worth 100x, although, in reality, 5-6x is a more realistic prospect.
There’s a bit of a revolution going on in the world of classic slots. And if you’re a fan of the new generation of retro slots like iSoftBet’s Neon Reels, make sure to give this game a try.
Prime Zone | Quickspin
We finish our weekly round-up with a closer look at Quickspin’s new Prime Zone slot. It’s a classic slot with a Miami Vice vibe. But don’t be fooled by the retro symbols on the reels, as this slot has some innovative bonus features.
Prime Zone is a 10-payline slot played on 5 reels. The retro look, using 3D drums that resemble a land-based slot machine, is popular now. Think iSoftBet’s Neon Reels to give you a good idea of what to expect. Whether you persevere with the funky 80s soundtrack or hit the ‘Mute’ button is up to you.
Multiplier wilds are a big feature of Prime Zone and can appear anywhere on reels 1 to 5. If 2 to 5 wilds appear on the same line, you win a multiplier worth 2-5x.
Three scatter symbols on reels 2 to 4 will trigger the Prime Zone bonus. You win 7 free spins to start off with and get to choose one of four free games options. Each option features a section of reels becoming the ‘Prime Zone’.
For example, if you choose reels 1 to 3 as the Prime Zone, you win a 1x multiplier. If you choose reels 2 to 4 as your Prime Zone, you earn 2x on all wins. We particularly like the Mystery Prime Zone. This can shift between reels on each spin and award an all-win multiplier of between 1x and 4x.
Prime Zone is another slick addition to the Quickspin arsenal. Check it out for free at VegasSlotsOnline.
