Four Halloween Releases from Microgaming
October 16, 2008 (InfoPowa News) — Blackjack players with a yearning for some additional and exciting side action will welcome the latest addition to Microgaming's Gold Series of superior quality table games — Multi Hand Perfect Pairs European Blackjack Gold.
Based on European rules, this new game enhances the opportunities inherent in the basic blackjack game by adding the optional possibility of extra winnings known as Perfect Pairs, where players are offered the option of side bets on the Perfect Pair (same suit and value for 30 to 1); a Coloured Pair (same value and colour for 15 to 1); or a Mixed Pair (same value, different suit for 7 to 1).
The new offering is part of Microgaming's Gold series of table games that has already established a reputation for smooth, fast-running, and brilliant, razor-sharp graphics.
Microgaming's lead October video slot is a spooky salute to that great hit movie of the eighties, "Ghostbusters," which saw four paranormal — or is that 'not-so-normal' — ghost catchers loose in New York. Carrying on a tradition that has seen this widely popular theme evolve into other movies, television series, and even today's video gaming culture, the company pays video slot homage to the classic with its own five-reel, 20-line game, branded Jonny Specter.
The slot features a ghostly wandering Wild, an ectoblastic Bonus game, and a freaky Free Spin Feature with a guaranteed wild reel on every spin, all wrapped in a full-color theme with instantly recognizable phantom busting elements such as a Psycho Kinetic Energy vault, spook zapper guns, haunted mansions, and Jonny's own unique emergency response vehicle.
There's nothing ethereal about the Wild, Expanding Wild, Free Spins, and Multipliers in Jonny Specter, all delivering substantial chances to achieve wins in the base game of up to 7500.00, and in Free Spins 15,000.00.
Ten pin bowling boasts a hundred million players in ninety countries around the planet — a truly international sport that Microgaming acknowledges in the innovative video slot Bob's Bowling Bonanza, released this month. With a big five-reel, 30 pay-line structure that includes reels morphing into bowling lanes, this game generates hours of fun and the chance of generous rewards.
The theme is amusingly created by colorful, quality cartoon graphics featuring Bowling Bob and his babe Babs, along with trophies, bowling shoes, pins and balls, all supporting a big, entertaining game with Wild, Scatter, Bonus Game, Expanding Reel and Gamble features to keep the action fast and furious.
The Perfect Game is an important feature of Bob's Bowling Bonanza, triggered when the Strike symbol appears simultaneously anywhere on reels 1, 3, and 5. When triggered, the reels morph into bowling lanes, where the player delivers a virtual ball toward the serried pins — the number of pins knocked down is multiplied by the triggering bet with the possibility of winning up to 20x per lane and three full strikes means the perfect game!
Microgaming's popular Gamble opportunity has been included in this entertaining new slot, giving the player the option to double or quadruple winnings by guessing the right color and suit presented in the game.
Bob's Bowling Bonanza combines two very enjoyable pastimes — ten pin bowling and Internet gambling — to deliver hours of entertainment and the exciting prospect of really good rewards.
Break out the beer, light up the stogies, and shuffle up and deal — Microgaming's new Spike's Nite Out video slot is now available for dog lovers — and others — everywhere! This 5-reel, 15 pay-line slot has an amusingly captivating canine theme featuring Spike the bulldog and his memorable mutts at their weekly poker game, carefully seated on those revealing tell-tails.
The game offers a slew of features that includes Wild (which substitutes for the scatter in this case), Scatter, and Bonus opportunities. This is a good game for low-rollers, too — bets from 0.01 a line up to 0.20 are accepted, with a maximum overall bet of 30.00 per spin. With this kind of investment in Lady Luck, players can earn up to 30,000.00 in the base game and a further 1,350.00 on bonuses.
