Our best new online slots of the week explore the Orient, US game shows, and classic 1980s comedies. How’s that for an eclectic mix?
First, ShuffleMaster return to China with 88 Fortunes MegaWays. Their original 88 Fortunes slot has been given the special treatment, with 6 reels, 4 rows, and up to 117,689 win lines open to players.
Staying in Asia, pokies giants Ainsworth try to magic up some luck with Golden Wisdom. IGT revisit a classic US game show with their The Price Is Right slot, while IGT pull out the big proton packs for Ghostbusters Plus, another bonus-heavy video slot with a lot of volatility and a ton of action.
88 Fortunes remains one of ShuffleMaster’s most enduring video slots. With 243 ways to win, a cool Asian theme, and a progressive jackpot, the game continues to pull in gamblers at land-based casinos and online.
Now, ShuffleMaster are back with an eagerly awaited follow-up. 88 Fortunes MegaWays increases the action with more features and a maximum 117,689 paylines.
Built on a 4-row, 6-reel arrangement, 88 Fortunes MegaWays allows spins up to 88.00, in keeping with the lucky eight theme. And, like the original 88 Fortunes slot, you have the option to activate the All Up system.
With this feature activated, the game’s four main symbols are upgraded to gold versions. The bet increases, but so do the potential jackpots.
You will trigger a free spins bonus when you land the gong on four or more reels in a row. You will win 8, 10, or 12 free spins, depending on how many gongs you land. You can also retrigger the feature. Best of all, there is a progressive multiplier in play during free spins. This increases after every win.
You may also recognize the gold pot above the reels if you’ve played the original 88 Fortunes game. When one or more Fu Bat symbols appear on the reels, gold coins are added to the pot. Once coins are added, there is a random chance that the Picker feature may trigger.
In the Picker feature, you have a group of 15 coins to choose from. Keep selecting coins until you match three of a kind. You will then trigger a free spins round with 10, 12, or 15 spins available.
If you loved 88 Fortunes, this is the next best thing. 88 Fortunes MegaWays is packed with action, but it’s a volatile beast from the East. Check it out for free at VegasSlotsOnline.
Sticking with our oriental theme, let’s take a closer look at another Asian slot hitting VegasSlotsOnline this week.
Golden Wisdom is the latest game from Aussie pokie machine makers Ainsworth. It’s a 5-reel slot with four progressive jackpots to claim. But can it give other Asian-themed Ainsworth games like Jade Tiger and Jade Emperor King Strike a run for their money?
On first looks, Golden Wisdom is a pretty standard oriental-style video slot. Mysterious Chinese mountains fill the background and glowing lanterns hover alongside the reels. The symbols represent wealth in Chinese culture: the pig, the tortoise, and green frog all sit on top of piles of gleaming gold coins.
There are two gold dragon wilds in the game. Both symbols substitute all regular icons except the scatters, but the X2 wild will double any winning combination it helps to complete.
Three or more Free Games scatters will trigger 8 free spins. You can also land extra free games scatters during the feature to increase your total. You should also look out for the golden peach. Six or more of those on the reels will activate the GoldenCash feature.
In the bonus round, you will win three free respins. The golden peach that triggered the feature is held in position. Subsequent golden peaches will hold in position for the duration of the respins too. You will also win yourself a random ‘Golden Prize’ worth 1-50x your total bet.
However, during the feature, the Extra Bonus Golden Cash symbol may fall. Look out for it on reels 2 to 4, in the form of a giant golden peach that fills the three reels entirely.
We love seeing Asian-themed slots with big action. This new Ainsworth release may be the peachiest one yet. so have a play at VegasSlotsOnline.
The legendary game show The Price Is Right has been turned into a video slot by many developers over the years. WMS, Fremantle, and IGT all have online slot machines based on the hit US show.
Now, IGT have launched the latest in their range of game show-themed slots, simply titled The Price Is Right. It features a Plinko bonus round that is similar to the one in their The Price Is Right Plinko slot. But what else can you expect from this slick new release?
The Price Is Right started out life on US TV as a show featuring crazy games where contestants could win life-changing sums of cash. You won’t win a car in this new slot, but you might bag a big jackpot along the way.
The Price Is Right orange-star logo is the slot’s wild, and it will replace all symbols other than the bonus wheel.
Before a winning base game spin, you may trigger the Punch a Bunch game. This is like a standard pick ’em bonus where you get to choose from 11 hidden symbols on the screen. The symbols will reveal multipliers worth 2x to 20x. However, you can either accept the multiplier or reject it and go for another one.
Three wheel symbols will trigger the Big Wheel Bonus. Take a spin to see if you trigger a Plinko game, the Cliff Hangers bonus, or win a multiplier worth 25x to 1000x your total stake.
Plinko will be familiar to anyone who’s played The Price Is Right Plinko. Watch as the three chips fall down the Plinko board, landing in cash slots worth 100 to 1000 coins. You will also bag a multiplier.
Cliff Hangers recreates the famous The Price Is Right game featuring a mountaineer trying to get to the top to award you the biggest prize. The reels will spin as Yodely Guy climbs the mountain. You win more free spins and bigger multipliers the further up he goes.
The Price Is Right seems to be the perfect addition to anyone’s game show-themed slots collection. Give it a test drive at VegasSlotsOnline for free.
Ghostbusters Plus is the latest release on IGT’s PlayDigital platform. This isn’t a branded slot with just a passing resemblance to the source material. What you get is actual footage and imagery from the classic 1984 comedy, complete with sound effects and big bonuses.
In this new game, you can unlock new ghosts, do battle with the monsters, and earn bigger features and permanent payback boosts. We ain’t afraid of no ghosts.
Despite a poor sequel and modern reboot, there’s no beating the original Ghostbusters film. The film is still popular to this day, especially its iconic chart-topping theme tune by Ray Parker Jr. What better time for IGT to roll out its Level Up Plus structure for this new release?
The Level Up Plus feature is the main draw of Ghostbusters Plus. You begin the game on Level 1 and can enjoy several benefits, including a Proton Pack that changes royal symbols to character symbols. You will also get 3x, 5x, and 10x wild multipliers.
When you trigger new levels, you can earn additional benefits like bonus wilds, transferring wilds, and automatic bonus trigger symbols. Reach Level 9, and you will find a +4 wild symbol that adds four wilds at once to complete the best winning combination.
When the ghost symbol lands on the center reel, you will activate the Ghost Battle bonus. Tap the ghost to zap it with your beam. Each zap releases a Ghost Wild into the Ghost Queue. When the ghost’s health hits zero, it is captured and you move up a level.
Equipment features can trigger at random after any spin. These include the Proton Pack (Level 1 only), Ecto Goggles, and Psychogram Helmet. The higher the level, the better the equipment you can claim. Equipment can reveal bonus symbols or trigger free spins.
Finally, three bonus scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 will trigger the Zuul Battle. Shoot your beam into the ancient god to earn wilds and extra free spins. You can retrigger the feature for a maximum of 25 free spins.
This is a volatile new slot packed with bonus features. But if you’re a fan of the Ghostbusters franchise, this is definitely the slot for you.
