Fans of online bingo will have eight more side games to choose from beginning this month courtesy of Internet gaming software provider Microgaming.
Microgaming stated that bingo side games are starting to play an ever-increasing role in the gaming industry after often being undervalued because these offer players an excellent form of entertainment while they wait for the balls to be drawn.
It revealed that the eight new bingo side games include a combination of video slots, scratchcard, casual and UK pub-style slot games.
Big Break is a 15-payline video slot featuring monkeys and apes alongside the Lucky Break symbol on reel five that allows wins not only from right to left but vice versa. All high symbols in the game act as scatters, multiplying any win by the total bet.
Harveys is a five-reel 25-payline video slot that offers players a minimum of six and a maximum of 30 recurring free spins and multipliers up to 25 times. Players also can hit the title's champagne and snail symbols to reap rewards.
The final new video slot from Microgaming, Don Deal, is a three-reel single-payline that the firm stated ‘oozes the rich smell of cash'.
This month's casual game is Three Wheeler, which uses three spinning wheels instead of dice. Each wheel spins independently with every position on the table acting as a bet on the outcome of one, two or three dice. In order to take home the win line, a spin must match the pre-placed bet total.
Hairy Fairies and Turtley Awesome are the latest additions to Microgaming's portfolio of scratchcard games. Both include characters that scratch away to reveal rewards. Players must match three symbols by picking from nine or twelve choices for the chance to win a prize that is 2,500 times the initial stake.
UK-pub style slot games Lucky Darts and Billion Dollar Gran are the final two games to launch this month. Lucky Darts is a bright and colourful game that is played across three separate screens featuring a main reel alongside a super and a feature games. Billion Dollar Gran features symbols including cups of tea, jewelry boxes, pearls, Battenburg cake and knitting needles while win spins are awarded based on reel wins on the reels games. Three bowl symbols on the win line also activate a video feature game.
