Online gambling software and games developer Microgaming has released three new games, featuring advanced slots with comical and varied themes covering game shows (It's Your Lucky Day), super heroes (Fearless Frederick) and opera singers (Fat Lady Sings).
There are two bonus possibilities in It's Your Lucky Day, a 5 reel 20 pay-line slot that takes its identity from those dazzling, big-prize television game shows of the "awesome eighties", where contestants were showered with everything from luxury travel and expensive cars to houses, appliances and cash. The game features Wilds, Scatters, re-triggering Free Spins with Multipliers and two second screen bonus games.
There are several ways to win in the game:
The "Your Lucky Day" logo acts as the Wild to build winning lines. It substitutes for all other symbols except for the show hosts and the Free Spins television screen.
Those Free Spins television screens have value, too - when two appear on the reels there's a 1x boost for the total bet staked, and if three appear there's a 2x boost to winnings, accompanied by 10 Free Spins where prizes are doubled and more freebies can be re-triggered.
The two energetic and money-laden show hosts act as Scatters, but more importantly pave the way to the second screen bonus feature where two different bonus structures can deliver massive winnings. When the player sees two Sexy Samantha symbols on reels 1 and 5 it's the cue to enter the Hi-Lo bonus game, where up to 95x the stake can be won by making the right four choices. The other host, Hyped Up Harry, will also be a welcome sight on reels 1 and 5, because he opens the virtual door to the Lucky Money bonus game, where the player has one pick from a selection of 18, and stands to win up to 50x the stake.
A mighty superhuman hero sets the theme for Microgaming's Fearless Frederick, a 5 reel, 30 pay-line video slot full of fun and free spins. The game features Wild, Scatter, Re-triggering Free Spins and Multipliers to give the player ample opportunities to win, and can produce impressive jackpots. Depicted in cool modern graphics, Fred flies to the rescue of damsels in distress and saves the world from flaming asteroids - all in a day's work. On the way, his presence as the Wild symbol can help the player build winning combinations, doubling the prize with his arrival.
The FF logo opens the second screen bonus of up to 25 Free spins where all prizes are trebled. When 3 or more Scattered logos appear across the reels the player is given a choice of a single heroic deed for Fred to perform from a selection of three. The rewards are cash prizes and free spins that can be re-triggered, and if Fred successfully completes the task, the player stands to win anywhere between 10 to 25 Free Spins where all the prizes are tripled in value.
Fred rarely fails, but if he does, there's a consolation prize - the player's triggering bet is doubled.
Large sopranos with big, glass shattering voices set the scene for Fat Lady Sings, a 5 reel, 25 pay-line video slot that is both colourful and comical. Features include an innovative bonus system, Free Spins galore, Multipliers, Wilds, Gamble and Scatters, all of which present the player with opportunities in terms of both entertainment and rewards.
Spend a fun night at the Microgaming opera with beefy Brunhilde, sumoesque Madam Butterfly and a bosomy Elvire, because when the innovative bonus feature triggers the player has a choice of singer and glasses, along with High, Medium and Low volume sound picks. Shatter the glasses and pick up the prizes is the name of the game. Free Spins can deliver between 5 and 30 Free Spins to which a dynamic and random selection of between 1x and 5x multipliers is attached. Completing the game is the popular Gamble feature, where players are given the chance to double or quadruple their winnings by making the right suit and colour calls.
