Microgaming Announces Loaded Re-release in High Definition
February 4, 2015
When it comes to online pokies, there are two main aspects of the experience that combine to give players an overall level of enjoyment in the games. The first is the type of graphics and sounds used for the general overall presentation. The second is the actual substance of the game in terms of payouts, bonus features, payout rates and volatility. You need both to make a good game, but it's important to point out that the level of graphics can change over time as advances are made in hardware and software and the general tastes of players change.
Microgaming recognizes this, and that's why they've re-released the Loaded pokie with a completely revamped set of graphics. This drastically improves on the first factor with high-definition graphics, but it retains all of the great gameplay of the original. The end result is that this is an excellent game that's both visually appealing and satisfying from a gameplay perspective. This is the combination that players need to have the most fun with online pokies today, and it's awesome that Microgaming is taking the time to bring older classics up to date with new graphics and a new visual appeal.
Loaded uses 25 paylines and the ability to bet up to 20 coins on each payline. This is an atypical betting arrangement with coins that go from AU$0.01 to AU$0.25 apiece. The top payout is also atypical at the 7,000x level, but this allows players to have a fairly large top jackpot while maintaining a medium overall volatility. The key to this game is the Triple Seven symbol which acts as the wild and is the key to the top jackpot. It also gives you plenty of other payouts that you wouldn't have gotten without a wild.
The microphone is the main scatter in this game, and it's also the key to getting the bonus feature. Pick up three or more of this scatter to get a set of free spins. You'll get to choose how many spins you want and the size of your multiplier. You can get 24 free spins with a 2x multiplier, 16 free spins with a 3x multiplier or 12 free spins with a 4x multiplier. They're all worth the same in terms of absolute value, so feel free to pick whichever you want since there's no way to lose value with any of the three.
