After exploring upcoming game providers in the last edition of the slots round-up, here are two more exciting prospects as they are about to release their latest creations. BGAMING presents Fire Lightning, where you get to spin with the Greek gods for mighty wins. We also get immersed in one of Edgar Allan Poe’s poems on Triple Raven, from High 5 Games, where dark birds will appear stacked on 720 pay lines.
The established providers have been creative too. We picked two releases that stand out from the crowd. Pragmatic Play has gone all juicy with its highly volatile Extra Fruity slot, a modern take on the classic fruit machine.
Last but not least, Betsoft is taking us on a journey through the mythical world of shamans in Tiger’s Claw, where it will conjure the good spirits and wins of up to 800,000 coins or 3,200x your bet.
Fire Lightning | BGAMING
Get ready for a divine clash on the reels of the latest creation from BGAMING. The futuristic slot design gives you the impression that Greek gods are meeting Star Wars for a spin contest on five reels and 20 paylines. A bright star-filled night sky shines through a transparent game window filled with Greek symbols and alien-like gods of war icons. A rather eerie soundtrack going into a dramatic crescendo on big wins adds to the mythical feeling.
A very generous RTP of 97.61% and medium volatility will provide the necessary fire power to face the mighty gods. The maximum win on a single spin of 1,000x your bet will be a handsome reward for your effort. Score big in the free spins round where wild symbols become sticky for the duration of the feature.
Retrigger the free spins indefinitely and rise up the Olympus of Greek mythology. Still not enough thrills? Then use the gamble feature up to four times to double your win in each round. Or lose it all, if the gods are not in a gracious mood.
Tiger’s Claw | Betsoft
We stay in the world of mythology in Tiger’s Claw, a fantasy-themed video slot in the bitter cold hunting grounds of the Siberian tiger. A powerful shaman calls on the benevolent spirits to guide players through their adventure on a 3-4-5-4-3 reel format with 720 ways to win.
A chilling wind swipes across the reels on every win, topping at 1,000 coins for a single five-of-a-kind of the tiger, the most valuable symbol on the game. Semi-stacked symbols provide the chance for multi-way wins that peak at 3,200x your stake. Bet sizes ranging from 0.5 to 250 credits will please low and high rollers alike.
Blue orbs in a tiger’s claw on all reels will trigger the free spins round. The bonus symbols can appear stacked, awarding eight free spins for each combination of five, up to 96 free spins on a single spin. That can increase to up to 240 free spins with retriggers during the feature. The shaman himself will appear scattered on the reels to award wins of 2x to 50x your bet for three to five scatters.
Triple Raven | High 5 Games
“Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter, in there stepped a stately Raven of the saintly days of yore,” said Edgar Allan Poe in his poem, written on a dark night in December 1844. But unlike the despondent narrator, you’ll have hope for big wins on the dreary December night thanks to 720 ways to win, wild substitutions, Triple Raven symbols, a free spins round and the Nevermore Bonus feature.
A mysterious soundtrack will keep you in suspense as you await the appearance of the fabled raven. The raven will land on the reels as a single, double, and triple symbol to award wins for up to a 15 of a kind. Hit them stacked on the reels to grow that to multi-way mega wins. Three scatters on reels two, three and four will award 10 free spins which can be triggered indefinitely.
You’ll be spoiled for choice in the Nevermore Bonus, with five tiers and up to five orbs to pick wins of up to 2,500 coins or a 50x bet in every tier. Progress to the next tier when you reveal a coin win. But be careful and avoid picking “exit” as this will rattle the raven and he will fly off, ending the bonus round.
Extra Fruity | Pragmatic Play
Many from the older slotting generation will remember the times when fruit machines were the backbone of slot designs. Fruits were accompanied by bells, sevens, diamonds and sevens, and games had mostly one to five pay lines. Much has changed since, but the appeal of fruit machines has remained. Today’s computer technology allows game providers to add contemporary twists and features to the classic theme.
Extra Fruity is Pragmatic Play’s version of a modern fruit machine with classic fruit and bell symbols. A Repeater feature has been added, as well as pays for adjacent symbols starting from the left on any reel. But don’t be fooled by the simple appearance, as the game comes with high volatility on five reels and 10 paylines.
Watch in awe when you hit stacked pay symbols on all reels, leading to a full screen of matching symbols and awarding 10x five of a kind. With the top symbol paying 100x your bet, that equals a huge 1,000x your initial stake.
The kicker, though, is the Repeater feature, which gives players the opportunity to multiply their wins. It is activated with a block of stacked matching symbols on the three middle reels. A bonus wheel with increasing multipliers and wedge collection grants one spin initially. Stopping on the multiplier awards a respin until the maximum multiplier of x64 is reached, or the wheel stops on collect. That puts the overall win potential past 10,000x the bet, well worthy of the good ol’ fruit machines.
