Experience the Fear Factor with MicroGaming’s Eerie New Bingo Side Games
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, TUESDAY 20TH OCTOBER 2009 — ISLE OF MAN – Microgaming is upping the scare stakes with the launch of four new spookily-themed bingo side games this autumn.
Players run the risk of getting a Trick or Treat with Microgaming’s haunting, Halloween themed 3 reel, 1 payline Slot game; where sinister pumpkins and bat symbols are the key to big wins up to a maximum of 4,000 coins.
Released with stunning graphics and animation, players are invited to enter the enchanting world of wizardry, mystic potions and century old treasures in Microgming’s 5 reel Video Slot, Winning Wizards. With a generous jackpot of up to 10,000 coins, all wins pay Left to Right and Right to Left, and the wizard symbol is Wild and substitutes for all symbols except scatters.
The backdrop to Goblins Gold transports players into an atmospheric underground lair, home to the Goblins themselves who stand as guardians of a jackpot of up to 6,000 coins. This is a 3 reel Slot game, where the Goblin symbol is Wild and substitutes for all symbols to allow for more winning combinations.
Monster Mania, a 5 reel and 9 payline Video Slot, with a maximum payout of 1,000 coins is designed to bring out the beast in players, and features a host of comically realised crazy critters. The game’s Scatter symbols pays any, and is multiplied by the players total bet. In addition, a Wild symbol carrying the name ‘Scatter Brain’ appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 and substitutes for all symbols except the scatter when it comes to completing winning combinations.
