Just one month to Christmas, so time to unpack some early presents from the game providers. What festive surprises will they have prepared in their latest game releases? It certainly looked exciting as we waded through all the new games coming onboard this week – we have narrowed it down to four slots from Thunderkick, Push Gaming, Elk Studios, and Pragmatic Play.
Elk Studios is known to release only a few games every year, but they are all blockbusters. We expect nothing different from Valkyrie as it looks just stunning. Push Gaming has prepared a special Christmas edition of its highly popular Fat Rabbit slot called Fat Santa. Some new pay mechanics and wins of up to 12,000x your bet are waiting on Mustang Gold from Pragmatic Play. Last but not least, get ready for some extra excitement on Thunderkick’s new creation, Rocket Fellas Inc.
Mustang Gold | Pragmatic Play
Travel back in time to when wild broncos were roaming the vast prairies of the west on Mustang Gold. A sequel to the highly popular Wolf Gold, this new slot from Pragmatic Play fields four fixed jackpots of up to 1,000x your stake, money collect horseshoes and a free spins round that can pay up to 12,000x your bet. Play starts at just 0.25 credits and goes up to 125 credits.
Golden horseshoes marked with random money values can appear on reels one to four on any spin. Hitting a collect symbol on reel five will award all money values in view. The jackpot bonus game is triggered when a jackpot symbol appears on a horseshoe. Pick from 15 golden horseshoes to find three matching jackpot symbols to win one of four fixed jackpots ranging from 50x to 1,000x your stake.
Campfire scatters on reels two, three and four will award eight free spins, which can be indefinitely retriggered. There are no win multipliers but the money collect horseshoes will appear at a higher frequency during the bonus round. The jackpot bonus game can also be triggered.
Valkyrie | Elk Studios
Norse mythology centers around the Valkyries and gods of Midgard, from the fires of Helheim, through Jotunheim all the way up to the heavens of Asgard. Join Freya, the goddess of love, on this slot from Elk Studios and start your journey through the worlds of Midgard. The Valkyries – Gane, Helena, Andora, and Tyrsa – are at your service, their weapons are your tools ready to help you on this thunderous reel quest. Play on a 5×4 game window with 1,024 ways to win and summon the godly powers in three random features and a free spins round.
The game not only features wild substitution, but also epic symbols. Any pay symbol can appear in sizes of up to 3×3. And that is just for starters. Watch in awe as Freya summons her powers in the three random features – the Shield of Chance, the Arrow of Fortune and the Sword of Destiny. The bonus spin is randomly triggered, setting off a rain of bonus symbols. The more that land on the reels, the more powerful the features will become.
The Shield of Chance will let a number of wild symbols drop onto the reels. The Arrow of Fortune will see Freya shooting a fire arrow that will burn a part of the reels to replace it with an epic symbol up to 3×3 size. The Sword of Destiny will see magically charged swords flying over reels two, three and four and any landing on the reels will turn the entire reel wild.
Three to five scatters will trigger five to 10 free spins, which can be retriggered. Occasionally, Freya will award an extra two free spins. A minimum one bonus spin is guaranteed for each free spins round with five spins, minimum two for a round of seven free spins and minimum three for a round with 10 free spins.
Rocket Fellas Inc. | Thunderkick
The four rocket fellas are on the loose on the latest slot creation from Thunderkick, creating havoc on the reels to produce wins of up to 7,325x your stake. They will set off rockets on a 5×4 game window with 30 fixed paylines and transform any target barrels into wild symbols. It gets even better during the free spins as they will turn into a sticky wild for the remainder of the bonus round.
Any rocket landing on reel one will shoot off and transform any target barrel on the same row into a wild symbol. Any other barrels on the same reel will also turn into wild symbols. Hit three or more scatters to win 10 to 20 free spins. Two or more scatters during the bonus round will award an additional three to 20 free spins indefinitely. The rocket shots will get an extra twist in the free spins. Any that hit a target barrel and other wilds on the same reel will turn into sticky wilds for the remaining free spins, providing for that huge win potential of 7,325x your stake.
Fat Santa | Push Gaming
This young game studio caused quite a furore in the gaming industry this year with some spectacular slots. Jammin’ Jars, Wild Swarm and Fat Rabbit stormed the casino lobbies and favorites list like rarely any other games. And Push Gaming has prepared a special surprise for the festive season. We could call it Fat Rabbit in Christmas mood, but the real name is Fat Santa and he is hungry for those delicious pies that will make him grow in the free spins to a size that will fill the entire game grid. But that’s not all, as Push Gaming added a random feature as well as an option to buy the free spins round at a fixed amount of 80x the stake, which should please the impatient among slot players.
The Santa’s Sleigh feature can be triggered randomly at the start of any spin. He will majestically steer his sleigh through the screen and drop a random number of wild pie symbols onto the game grid. Land Santa on reel one and one or more wild pie symbols in the same spin will award eight to 16 free spins. During the feature, Santa will move to any position where a pie lands on a free spin and eat it. The more he devours the bigger he gets, up to the size to fill the entire game window, which will pay exactly 1,000x the stake.
