Microgaming’s Latest Games Launch, July 2010
July 11, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) — Microgaming (www.microgaming.com), the world’s largest provider of online gaming software, unveils three exciting new feature rich slots this month, offering great golfing action, an African adventure, and all the opulence of the Orient.
THE ARGYLE OPEN, is the latest offering from Microgaming and will appeal to sports fans and gamers alike, with its action packed combination of interactive online golf and feature rich slot action.
This five reel, 40 payline game’s outstanding graphics depict golfers, clubs and trophies, all backed by a truly entertaining host of big slot features such as Scatters, Wilds, Free Spins, and Multipliers.
The slot offers an absorbing interactive Bonus game in the form of a three stage golf tournament, triggered by three or more Scatter symbols appearing on the reels. This feature allows the player to select a pro to play the tournament and move round the various holes of the lush Argyle course, each time the Bonus is triggered. The interactive element in the game allows the player to control the actions and clubs used by the pro, and the objective is to sink the putt with as few strokes as possible, in order to accrue Free Spins.
The Drive and Fairway Bonus features within the game reward players with great prizes, depending on the distance travelled by the ball. The Putt Bonus feature involves the player chipping on to the green; the closer the ball gets to the hole, the more re-triggering Free Spins are awarded.
LION’S PRIDE, is a five reel, 100 payline game that offers Scatters, stacked Wilds and Free Spins with significant Multipliers. This video slot takes intrepid players to the vast sun drenched plains of Africa, where the King of the Jungle offers them huge rewards.
The fierce looking African tribal mask is one of the keys to these rewards, because three, four or five trigger a very generous Free Spins feature, where up to 25 Free Spins can be won, each carrying the possibility of multipliers ranging from 2x to 10x.
DRAGON LADY, is a Chinese themed video slot, featuring exquisite illustrative work depicting coloured fans, lanterns, jewellery boxes, gold and silver ingots, and even the tastefully tattooed Dragon Lady.
This five reel, 40 payline game has a wide range of features that include a second screen bonus game, a host of Free Spins, generous Multipliers, three different Scatter symbols and the Wild Dragon Lady; she not only helps players to build winning combinations, but features in the bonus game too.
Three or more Scatters – fans, dragons or lanterns – in any stop position on any reel takes players to the magical Dragon Bonus feature, where they are given four opportunities to match caps from a selection of nine. The rewards on offer are five different Multipliers, ranging from 2x to a massive 100x.
The beautifully crafted Jewellery Box is another winning opportunity when it appears in any stop position on reels one and five, triggering a potentially lucrative Free Spins feature in which 10, 15 or 20 Free Spins are awarded, each carrying the potential to double the player’s winnings.
