Wolf Moon Rising
This adventure pokie from Betsoft hit the Internet on August 27th. Betsoft, by the way, is fresh off their first win at the prestigious EGR B2B Awards. This is an annual event recognizing the best service providers from the online gaming industry.
This 25-payline pokie has a maximum bet of $5 and an RTP of 96%. The maximum payout is worth an amazing 500,000x the player’s wager.
The theme of the game revolves around wolves of all shapes and sizes. There are even not-of-this-world creatures such as the Ice Wolf and Fire Wolf.
The free spins feature awards 12 free games with all winnings doubled. Free spins can’t be retriggered, but they do pay in both directions.
Watch for the Wolf Moon symbol. During the Fortune under the Full Moon feature, it pays half your wager each time it appears.
Those who enjoy staying at home can play the game on their PC. If you prefer the great outdoors, you can also enjoy it on any casino that supports mobile gameplay.
Microgaming recently released this fantasy-adventure pokie. However, they can’t take credit for its creation. That honour goes to Pulse 8 Studios, an indie studio specializing in Asian-themed designs.
Join three intrepid adventurers as they descend into a tomb in search of an ancient relic. There are 25 paylines, and reel symbols are likely to turn wild at any time.
In addition, the Rolling Reels feature causes winning symbols to explode. These icons are then replaced, further enhancing your chances of winning.
There’s also a free spin round to look forward to. Collect keys during this phase for more spins and a 2x multiplier.
Microgaming has been busy in August, also releasing this exclusive creation from Just for the Win. If you’re unfamiliar with the name, these are the people responsible for Shogun of Time and Ruby Casino Queen.
The game features a unique theme that melds Vikings and a tropical paradise. This online masterpiece has 20 paylines, and it’s also available for fans of mobile pokie.
The two most notable features are the Symbol Lock Re-spins and Symbol Upgrades. The former freezes winning symbols in place, allowing for bigger wins and further re-spins. Symbol Upgrades are achieved by filling a meter as symbols become frozen. This can result in upgraded icons, which are worth more money to the player.
Vampires vs Wolves
Pragmatic Play is one of the world’s leading developers of video pokies. If you want to know why, look no further than Vampires vs Wolves. This virtual slot has a supernatural theme, complete with werewolves and undead bloodsuckers.
When you activate the free spins round, you’ll get to choose between two games. The wolf option awards 14 free spins and an increased number of wilds. Meanwhile, the vampire option grants eight free spins and the possibility of sticky wilds.
