Brand New Microgaming Slots in February
Next month sees the release of a number of new Microgaming slot games. Online casinos seem to be particularly excited about two of these games, the Great Griffin online slots and Atomic 8s slots.
Great Griffin is a medieval themed slot game set in an alchemist’s castle. Appropriately the symbols on the reels are sorcerer’s tools such as a spell book, potion flask, magic crystal and mysterious plants. They are all joined by the hooded lady of the castle and the legendary griffin. The griffin can take off and fly across the reels, each symbol he scratches turns into a wild griffin symbol which doubles the pay-outs.
Great Griffin has 50 pay-lines and four rows of symbols which provide lots of opportunities for large pay-outs. In the main game it is possible to win up to 50,000 coins, 500,000 in the free spins and 750,000 coins in the bonus game. Free spins are triggered if the hooded lady appears on reels 3, 4 and 5 then players can choose from 15 free spins with a 3x multiplier, 10 free spins with a 5x multiplier and 5 free spins with a 10x multiplier.
The Atomic 8s slots game brings back a Microgaming favourite, Power Spins. The Power Spins mode must be actived by the player, it automatically enables all of the pay-lines and costs the players triple the original line bet. The Power Spins feature is the same as in the Sonic 7s slot game with one addition, players will now win if the symbols line up from right to left as well as left to right.
Aside from the Power Spins, Atomic 8s is built like a classic three reel slots. It features only 9 pay lines and has very few extra features, however, it will undoubtedly attract players who enjoy focusing on the line and scatter pay-outs.
