Microgaming continues to expand its impressive portfolio of online slot machines with new titles appearing almost every month. On Match 5th 2014, this award-winning online casino software provider launched a duo of new slots and they included a Pirate themed slot called Looses Cannon and also a new Untamed slot called Untamed – Crowned Eagle. These two new slots both have 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin.
“The Untamed series, which already boasts Bengal Tiger, Giant Panda and Wolf Pack, shows that we are second to none in building legendary gaming experiences. The addition of Crowned Eagle is the perfect extension to an already popular series of games. As well as this instalment, our operators' players will also thoroughly enjoy the swashbuckling Loose Cannon online slot,” said Microgaming’s Head of Casino, Mike Hebden.
These two new slots are both now widely available and they can be found at some of the following great Microgaming powered online casinos: Gaming Club Casino, Mummy’s Gold Casino, Royal Vegas Casino, Roxy Palace Casino, All Jackpots Casino, Golden Riviera Online Casino, UK Casino Club, Blackjack Ballroom Casino, Luxury Casino, Crazy Vegas Casino, Maple Casino, Ruby Fortune Casino, Golden Tiger Casino, Casino Action, All Slots Casino, Casino-Mate, Cabaret Club Casino, Vegas Palms Casino, Betway Casino and Riverbelle Casino.
These new slots can be launched instantly in your browser, plus they can also be found with the casino download client at each of these fully licensed online casinos. The other great thing about these two new slots is that that can be launched either in the real money mode or in the free play demo mode. The Loose Cannon Slot has a great Wild Cannon Bonus which can turn up to 15 positions on the reels into Wild Symbols and this can create some huge winning combinations.
The Untamed – Loose Cannon Slot has a unique Soaring Wilds feature which becomes active during the Free Spins Bonus Round. Also on this slot is the Lucky Nudge™ feature which can help trigger the Free Spins Bonus Round when only two of the Scatter Symbols are in view. It also has the Collect-a-Wild™ feature which can turn certain reels into Stacked Wild Reels for up to four spins. You can also try and gamble your winnings during regular play thanks to the awesome Your Gamble™ feature.
These two new slots are both well worth checking out. They have some fantastic in-play animations and equally brilliant sounds for players to enjoy, plus they also both have some really big prizes to play for. The comments contained within this article came directly from the Microgaming website.

One of the very latest slots from Playtech is called Fortune Hill and this one has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines. It has a universal theme which should appeal to most players and it contains plenty of exciting & entertaining ‘on-reels’ bonus features. There is also a great second screen bonus round called the Magic Mushroom Bonus and this will trigger when the Magic Mushrooms land on the two end reels (reels 1 and 5).
You can also win prizes from within the Free Spins Bonus Round which will trigger when the Rainbow Scatter Symbols show up on reels 1, 3 and 5. This new online slot from Playtech has what is called a Fortune Wheel and this rickety looking mill wheel can always be seen towards the right hand side of reel 5 (the rightmost reel). When you hit spin, this Fortune Wheel will also spin and it could award one of several different bonus features.
These bonuses include the Money Bag Feature, Magnificent Multipliers, a Wondrous Wizard Re-Spin or the Fairy Feature. Basically, a cash prize or Multiplier is up for grabs when either of these features is triggered.
Net Entertainment (aka NetEnt) recently launched a great new slot called Wonky Wabbits. “Wonky Wabbits(TM) combines cheekiness, rich graphics and huge win anticipation to create a truly brilliant innovative video slot,” said Simon Hammon, the Chief Product Officer of NetEnt. This new slot has an Easter/rabbit/vegetable theme with 5 reels and 15 winning paylines which pay both ways.
Wonky Wabbits has a special wild feature called Wild Duplication and as soon as a Wild Symbol appears in view, it will automatically be duplicated into the position which creates the maximum possible win. The Wild Symbols can appear on any of the reels, but Stacked Wild Symbols can also appear on reels 2 and 4. Up to 14 Wild Symbols can appear on the reels after any spin and when this happens your prize will be phenomenal.
Betsoft Gaming has recently launched a brand new 3D slot machine called Good Girl Bad Girl and this state of the art slot is one of the most action packed slots available online today. Visually, this is one of the best looking slots available online today and this is exactly what Betsoft Gaming has become famous for. This latest Betsoft slot has 5 reels and up to 30 winning paylines (depending on which game mode you select).
There are some two progressive jackpots to play for on this slot and the Wild Multipliers can work wonders for your bankroll. You can also win prizes from the Click Me Bonus Feature and from the Money Wheel Bonus. This is an awesome new online slot which is well-worth checking out.
You can now find these new slots at various fully licensed online casinos such as Mr Green, bgo Vegas, Tropezia Palace Casino, BetVictor Casino, Omni Casino, Gala Casino, Genting Casino and Paddy Power Casino. Microgaming has also announced that it will be releasing two new online slots called Loose Cannon and Untamed – Crowned Eagle. These new titles should arrive in the first week of March.

IGT Interactive software can be found in some of the best online casinos and also at various other similar gambling portals such as Mr Green (casino), bgo Vegas, Betfred Slots, Ladbrokes Games, bet365 Games, William Hill Games and BetVictor Games, but also at more than 100 other fully licensed gaming sites.
Already in 2014, IGT Interactive has managed to release a string of great new slots. These brand new slots from IGT included Masques of San Marco, Sumatran Storm, Cluedo Classic, Dungeons & Dragons: Treasures of Icewind Dale, Battleship, Vegas, Baby!, Wolf Rising and Nouveau Riche. These slots have completely unique themes from one another and they can all be accessed instantly in your browser.
The other great thing about these new IGT slots is that they are all available in the free play practice mode as well as in the real cash mode. They have some great sound effects and they can be played in the fullscreen mode. If you enjoy these slots, you may also want to check out some of the other top slots that IGT managed to launch in 2013 such as Transformers – Battle for Cybertron, Golden Goddess and Water Dragon, all of which are now widely available.
Most of these slots have Free Spins Bonus Rounds and exciting second screen bonus rounds for players to win prizes from and many of them contain special symbols such as Wild Symbols, Scatter Symbols and Bonus Symbols. The Wild Symbols on many of these slots are in fact Stacked Wild Symbols, which means that they can cover entire reels and generate huge wins, especially when two or more Stacked Wild Symbols appear next to each other on consecutive reels.
You can also look forward to some fairly neat graphics and cool in-play animations when playing on these new slots and there are some really big prizes up for grabs. Unfortunately though, none of these games have progressive jackpots to play for. You will also find that some of these new IGT slots have 720 ways to win per spin and these ones are classed as MultiwayXtra slots and the Wolf Rising slot has as many as 100 winning paylines.
Head over to any of the fully licensed online casinos that were mentioned at the begining of this article if you want to play on either of these slots right now. Most casinos will have all of these slots available, but some may only have a few of these new tiles available. The very latest ones, such as Wolf Rising and Nouveau Riche, should start appearing in more casinos as we move further into 2014.

Big Bang is a brand new NetEnt slot which has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines. This new slot actually arrived in January 2014 and it can now be found in some of the best NetEnt powered casinos. It has a deep space theme and it can be launched instantly in your browser. You can also choose to play on this slot either in the real money mode or in the free play demo mode.
Low rollers can spend as little as 0.25 coins per spin and there is no way that you can spend less than this because it’s impossible to decrease the amount of paylines that each spin is played with. If you’re a high roller, you should be pleased to learn that you can spend up to as much as 50.00 coins per spin.
To really get the most out of the explosive & robust graphics on this new NetEnt slot, we recommend launching this game in the fullscreen mode. We also recommend turning the volume up on this one. The player controls and adjustable settings can be found towards the bottom left hand side of the game window.
Although there are no entertaining second screen bonus rounds for you to enjoy on this slot and although there are NO free spins either, you can win some great prizes from the Multiplier Meter feature. This special feature will trigger after each line win occurs. With each line win that does occur, the Multiplier Meter (which you can see towards the left hand side of the game window, next to reel 1) will increase by one value.
It will automatically start at 1X and then it will increase with each consecutive win to 2X, 4X, 8X, 16X and then to a maximum of 32X. If it reaches 32X and you happen to win again, that next prize will also then be multiplied by 32X. This is an excellent special feature which is unique to this slot only and it can really help boost your balance.
Speaking about this new slot being released back in January was the Chief Product Officer of Net Entertainment, Simon Hammon; “Big Bang continues our tradition of creating best-of-breed video slot games for the online casino market. Much like space, there’s so much to discover within Big Bang that players are bound to come back for more and more on the reels!” These words came directly from the official NetEnt website.

Avalon ll: Quest for the Grail is an online slot machine which has been two years in the making. This is an action and feature packed slot which comes with 5 reels, 243 ways to win per spin and some impressive 3D rendered animations. The sharp and extremely detailed graphics are accompanied by some really cool in-play animations, especially when a line win occurs and also during the immersive second screen bonus rounds. Take a look at the video of this slot in the making. Just hit play on the video beneath…
This brand new medieval themed slot is available in the real cash mode and in the free play mode and it is the sequel to Microgaming’s Avalon slot, which is a slot that can be found in more than 200 individual Microgaming powered casinos.

Whenever the Wild Symbols combine with other symbols to generate a line win, they will automatically multiply your prize by 2X.
