This week saw massive jackpot Microgaming slot Mega Moolah make yet another millionaire, and in doing so proving why Microgaming is still seen by many as one of the (if not just ‘the’) top mobile slot games producers out there. Though 2014 has already seen the release of games like Girls with Guns: Frozen Dawn, Avalon II and The Dark Knight Rises, this summer promises to be a big boost to the already bumper Microgaming roster, as they add three more mobile titles this July.
The new additions to the mobile line up are all already available as online slots. You can look at this one of two ways: you can get annoyed that Microgaming isn’t putting effort into creating genuinely new mobile slot (while it is also adding some completely original online slots at the same time), or, you can appreciate the fact that we know all about the games prior to release, so can tell you all about them!
It’s difficult not to appreciate the detail given to the sound on Kathmandu. This (loosely) Nepalese themed slot features the background noise of a casino as you play, and nice solid beeps and bloops when you interact with it. Our favourite thing about the sound has to be the tune it plays when you win, which id more hoedown than sub-continent, but is a bit of fun nonetheless.
The 5 reels and 9 paylines offer an enjoyable enough basic game, but the real money lies in the extra spins. If you land extra spins with your wagering set to maximum, you might be lucky enough to hit the 5x multiplier and make up to £150,000!
This game does pretty much exactly what it says on the tin. Timed to be released at the hight of the eponymous season of year, this 5 reel, 9 payline slot celebrates the warm months in style. On top of all the classic fruit machine symbols, there are those which bring to your mind sunshine and sandy beaches, and help you feel the unwinding relaxation that the summer affords.
On top of a chilled vibe, Summertime features a hefty serving of bonus features, including scatters which can trigger up to 15 extra spins, each of which have a 3x multiplier! Of the three new games coming from Microgaming in July, this one may have the weakest theme, but in our opinion looks the best in high definition, so, you know, it’s a toss-up.
The Grand Journey
Of the three releases, The Grand Journey undoubtedly has the most thrilling theme to contend with. This 5 reel slot also has the highest number of ways to win, with 30 paylines for you to wager across, meaning that this is the obvious choice for those players with a little more cash to play with.
The theme, as the name kind of suggest, is that of action and adventure. Your hero is an Indiana Jones style adventurer who has to fight natural dangers and dinosaurs to find his treasure. As a player you have it a little easier, and can make your money with the help of expanding wilds, extra spins and increasing multipliers. This is probably our favourite of the three.
Keep an eye out for all of these slots heading our way in the next week or so. As yet it is unclear the exact date of release, or which casinos are likely to host them, but if you keep an eye on Mobile Slots 4U, we’ll keep you posted on any and all developments.
