Get ready for a week of crazy. With that, we mean crazy high volatility, crazy features and crazy reel modifiers. The creative teams at Pragmatic Play, Leander Games, Big Time Gaming and Blueprint Gaming have been hard at work to surprise us with some superb games this week. While not all will be released in December, we can sure look forward to spinning the new reels in January 2019.
Pragmatic Play has presented us with Egyptian Fortunes, a 25-line slot with a twist in the free spins that can produce huge wins on every spin. Leander Games has summoned the Forces of Nature on its latest creation to apply four reel modifiers that will get us into a whirlwind of wilds.
In need of some extra volatility for your gaming session? Then Primal Megaways is just right for you. With potential win multipliers of up to 7,776x and a win potential of up to 50,000x your stake, you can expect nail-biting moments.
And it has finally arrived! The next creation from Big Time Gaming is once again a marvel of slot design called Holy Diver, named after the hit song from heavy metal band Dio.
Egyptian Fortunes | Pragmatic Play
Travel to the Egyptian desert to visit the ancient pyramids in this slot from Pragmatic Play and enter a mysterious world of the pharaoh to search for an Egyptian fortune. Find the sacred scroll as it will reveal special symbols for the bonus round. The HD graphics are simply astonishing, while the pay symbols on the five reels and 20 pay lines are accurate depictions of the era. Play the game from 0.20 coins to 100 coins for wins of up to 1,000x your bet in a single spin.
The game comes with a new pay mechanic called Energy Spins. Simply score one of the selected winning combinations to be awarded with up to five of these extra spins. To trigger them, you will need either three of a kind premium symbols, four of a kind medium symbols or a five of a kind of the low-value symbols. The game will then spin up to five times without any extra cost and all wins will be accumulated. This won’t be monster wins, but decent enough amounts that will help in keeping the balance healthy.
Pyramid scatters on reels one, three and five will trigger six free spins with special symbols. A scroll appears with three reel positions and will award one spin. All pay symbols, except wild and scatters, are included and the three landing on the spin will be the only symbols on the reels during the feature. No doubt, a great moment to hit mega wins.
Force of Nature | Leander Games
Feel the mighty power of the weather on the five reels and 20 pay lines on Force of Nature. Three modifiers in the base game and an Electric Storm of free spins with sticky wilds will twist you into a whirlwind of big wins. Play the game from 20 to 100 coins and score wins of up to 1,000x the stake on a single spin.
Watch out for the forces of nature – Tornado, Earthquake and Flood – as these random features can trigger on any spin in the base game to award reel modifiers. The Tornado will blow a number of symbols from the reels to replace them with new ones for potentially bigger wins. Beware when the Flood comes rolling in as it will sweep in quickly and leave a trail of wilds in its wake once it starts subsiding. The Earthquake will shake the entire screen and shatter two reels to turn them into full height wilds.
Land scatters on reels one, three, and five to trigger 10 Electric Storm free spins. Wilds landing on reels one to four on a free spin will become sticky for a number of spins before they are released again. Get more free spins when a scatter hits on reel five.
Primal Megaways | Blueprint Gaming
Get ready for a stampede of the biggest mammal that has ever lived on this planet. The mammoth is the main actor on the six reels of Primal Megaways, the latest creation using the licensed game engine. With up to 46,656 ways to win and win multipliers of up to 7,776 in the free spins, this game is a high volatility monster that will have you buzzing in every slotting session. A free spins win a guarantee of 10x your bet will help to avoid a total bust in the round.
Start your adventure through the Stone Age with random mystery fire that will reveal a common symbol once the reels have stopped. Score three to six scatters and you can look forward to 10 to 30 free spins with a wild multiplier ranging from x2 to x6. The more scatters trigger the round, the higher the multiplier can be.
The most desirable is, of course, a round triggered with six scatters as that will award 30 free spins with wild multipliers from the entire range. Wilds landing on a spin on reels two to six will reveal a multiplier even when they are not part of a winning combination. Landing more than one wild will see them multiplied, which could lead to a maximum of up to 7,7776x. Even just the smallest win would instantly turn into a super mega win.
Holy Diver | Big Time Gaming
Ever since Big Time launched WWTBAM, we have been waiting to see what they will have up their sleeve for the next slot creation. And it looks stunning. Holy Diver comes with six reels and 117,649 ways to win that can increase to 586,971 in free spins. A new game mechanic called Reel Adventure, which is attached to the bottom of the game window, sees a knight fighting his way through to the castle to award reel modifiers, win multipliers and collect bonus symbols that will trigger the free spins. A scorching win potential of up to 23,306x will have you cheering for the knight all the way to the treasure chamber in the castle.
In the base game, the knight can be seen progressing on a path and encountering a treasure chest every one to five spins to award one of four reel modifiers, which will be applied to reels two to five only. The first is the Standard Symbol Bonus where either 9, 10, J, Q, K or A will be transformed into wild symbols. The second option is the Sword Bonus where up to three reels can turn into a wild with a multiplier from 1x to 7x, providing the potential for a maximum multiplier of 343x.
The third modifier is the Fireball Bonus where up to four standard wilds are added; however, a maximum of one per reel. The fourth option is the Gem Symbol Bonus where any matching gem symbols on the reels will turn into a wild symbol with a multiplier based on the game level and ranging from 1x to 3x.
The gems the knight reveals form the chests will be accumulated in the symbols collector. Once four are collected, the game will offer to play the free spins round with 10 free spins on level 1 and all gems turning into a 1x wild multiplier. Players can opt to carry on with level 2 where they have to collect the four gems again before being offered 10 free spins with all gems acting as a 2x wild multiplier.
Yet again, players can opt to play the free spins or carry on to complete level three where the 10 free spins will be automatically played with the gems acting as a 3x wild multiplier. More free spins can be collected during the feature or it can be retriggered, at which point the window will expand to reach the maximum 586, 971 after three retriggers. The symbol collector will reset after a free spins round has been played.
