4ThePlayer, Avatar UX, Play’n Go and Nolimit City: on the spin
As a number of new gaming titles grace the CasinoBeats inbox, sit back and get to grips with a select few new slot games as we take a look at 4ThePlayer’s time-bending slot, AvatarUX’s eighth PopWins title, Aurum Signature Studios’ dress-up party, Nolimit City’s battle for gold and Play’n Go’s ancient Egyptian-style reels.
10x Rewind – 4ThePlayer
4ThePlayer has collaborated with slot supplier Yggdrasil for its latest addition to its growing portfolio of slots with this 6×4, 4,096-ways slot.
The title includes a rewind time win spins mode along with 4ThePlayer’s big reel portrait mode.
In the game, player’s can be blasted back to the past within the game if they trigger the rewind time win spin mechanic which reverses time to repeat previous wins.
Landing three win spin scatter symbols within the base game on reels one, three and six will activate this mechanic. Once triggered, past wins are “taken to a new level” due to an increasing win multiplier.
Moreover, where previous wins do not exist, random wins will be generated.
The title also includes 4ThePlayer’s Big Reel Portrait Mode which uses 70 per cent of the screen in portrait mode compared to the standard 20 per cent.
“10x Rewind gives fans an extremely immersive slot, both with the rewind time wins feature and the big reel portrait mode. We are sure players will enjoy the high win rate and engaging graphics that come with this latest slot from 4ThePlayer, led by the engrossing Time Traveller character,” commented Stuart McCarthy, head of product and programmes at Yggdrasil.
“Being a YG Masters partner has offered us a great boost as we can focus solely on developing amazing content. With 10x Rewind we continue our momentum that has seen us develop never seen before titles that players love and keep coming back to,” added Chris Ash, founder and business development director of 4ThePlayer.com
PiggyPop – AvatarUX
AvatarUX has exclusively rolled out its eighth PopWins title, taking players to the plush world of the most glamorous pigs in town with this 6×4 video slot with up to 524,228 ways to win.
The title includes features such as cascading wins, a bonus wheel, free spins and a changing reel set.
Set in a glitzy, casino-style setting, the game sees the supplier’s PopWins mechanic return with each win ‘popping’ before the reel height increases, allowing for two more symbols to take their place. The feature sees the reels expand to up to six symbols in base play, and up to eight in the free spins mode.
When all reels reach their maximum height of six symbols high, players trigger the unlimited free spins mode, where reels can hit up to eight symbols tall. Every spin increases a multiplier by one, giving even bigger win potential during the bonus round.
During the free spins, the value of the golden pig symbols is multiplied by the amount that are on the reels, which can double if all reels are unlocked.
Finally, before the bonus round, players are given the option to gamble their free spins, with a successful gamble giving a higher starting reel height, while losing will return players back to the base game.
“PiggyPop is another thrilling PopWins game that brings excitement and a real sense of glamour to our series. With fan-favourite features, huge win potential and an engaging theme, players will be enjoying the company of our greedy pigs in search of thrilling results,” said Marcus Honney, managing director at AvatarUX.
Knockout Party – Aurum Signature Studios
Aurum Signature Studios invites players to dress up in their craziest costumes and compete for big wins in this 5×3, 243-payline video slot with features including free spins, rolling reels, random wilds, a multiplier trail and a bonus selection.
In the game, up to five reels can be completely covered with wilds, activating the Wild KO feature.
Furthermore, if the player lands three or more scatter symbols, they will be given out one of the free spins modes for them to choose.
Moreover, 10 spins can be activated with a multiplier of x5; 15 spins, in which a random multiplier is applied to the winnings x2 or x3; 20 spins with the Rolling Reels function – in which a progressive multiplier for winnings up to x5 is active; and 25 spins with wild symbols on the third reel.
“We had great fun creating the theme for Knockout Party, creating something for our customers that is completely different to what is in the market at the moment,” Alex Ratcliffe, head of slots at Entain. “Underpinned with great features and RTP variants, we are proud of the final product delivered by Aurum to all of our brands.”
Das xBoot – Nolimit City
Malta-based slot studio Nolimit City throws players into a naval war zone where they battle for gold in this slot.
Featuring a 2-3-4-4-3-2-reel set layout, the game also offers players various features such as xNudge Wilds, xWays, xBomb Wild Multiplier, Silent Hunter spins and Wolf Pack spins.
The title comes with Nolimit’s xNudge Wilds mechanic which is a four-row high wild that always nudges into fully visible, where every nudge increases the wild multiplier by one.
Additionally, the slot includes xWays, a special symbol that adds additional winning ways, as it will always reveal two to three of the same symbol.
xBombs will blow away the non-winning symbols from the reel, to make room for new symbols to fall in, as well as it’s counted as a Wild. A xBomb also increases the win multiplier by one before the next collapse.
If the player lands three bonus symbols, they will trigger eight Silent Hunter spins. During this mode, reel three will grow to eight rows high. When a winning combination is struck, the torpedo launch sequence will activate.
Hit the target and the Periscope Wild fills the third reel to the top and nudges down to the bottom, giving a win multiplier for each nudge downwards. It will also award an increased win multiplier for the remainder of the feature. Alternatively, four bonus symbols activate eight Wolf Pack spins.
“Three of our explosive xMechanics presented in a claustrophobic and eerie theme – an unusual 234,432 reel setup really fits this beast of a slot. Load the torpedo tubes and make sure that shot counts…” highlighted Per Lindheimer, product owner at Nolimit City.
Ghost of Dead – Play’n Go
Play’n GO transports players to Ancient Egypt to be introduced to the living spirit Akh in its latest addition to its Dead series.
This 5×3, 10-payline slot includes wild scatter symbols, four high-paying symbols and five royals.
Within the base game, the Ghost Spin may activate randomly on any normal spin. The Ghost selects a royal or high-paying symbol which becomes a special expanding symbol in the round.
Once the expanding symbol is chosen, it can form winning combinations across non-adjacent reels.
Players can trigger the free spins feature by landing three or more scatters on any reel within the base game and be awarded an initial 10 spins. A choice of three random royal or high-paying symbols is then provided which will become the expanding symbol during the feature.
Scatters might turn into spectral scatters when free spins are triggered leading to awakened free spins instead.
Played similar to the free spins intro above, the ghost also chooses at random a second special expanding symbol in each round of awakened free spins.
Finally, the title comes with a Gamble feature which can lead to players doubling their potential winnings.
“With titles in the Dead Series, players already have an idea of what the game should look like and how it will play.It’s a balance of innovating to keep players engaged, but familiarity and consistency are key in creating a reliable series of games that players can depend on,” noted Play’n GO’s head of games, Charlotte Miliziano.
