January 14, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) — Microgaming, the world’s largest provider of online gaming software, gets 2010 off to a great start with two new feature-rich themed video slots with some innovative winning twists. These latest offerings are sure to help players keep the January blues at bay with arctic antics and a robot servant all on the agenda.
ARCTIC FORTUNE takes players on a magic adventure through the frozen wilderness in search of untold riches. This 5 reel, multiple ways to win slot, features fierce warriors, icy landscapes, wolves, drinking horns and brimming treasure chests in some rather sinister looking locations.
This slot has no paylines, instead offering ways to win rewards through a combination of multipliers, a second screen bonus, and free spins. Three, four or five treasure maps open a memorable, scary, second screen bonus where the player can win up to 40 re-triggering free spins with variable multipliers of up to six times.
Look out for the wild, an exquisite Arctic Fortune Shield icon that helps players to build wins when it appears on reels two or four.
Join Robbie the ROBOT BUTLER in Microgaming’s new five reel, 20 payline video slot. When it comes to gambling, Robbie’s the man (or rather machine) to show the way to fun and hopefully prosperity on this multi-featured game.
The robot symbol is the one to look out for across reels one and five simultaneously, triggering the Robot Butler bonus feature, where the player gets to choose an item for the robot to find, and their reward depends on his success.
Robot Butler also offers some great free spin treats, including re-retriggering free spins with mystery multipliers, which pop up when three of the butler’s trays appear across the reels.
Rounding off the game is a great Gamble feature, where you can double or quadruple wins by correctly predicting the suit and colour of the next card to appear.
The new games launches follow the announcement of Microgaming’s latest flagship branded video slot, Hellboy, which promises to be hugely successful among the playing community.
Visit Microgaming at the International Gaming Expo (IGE), 26th – 28th January 2010 on stand 5240.
