The very latest slot from Playtech is an exciting Egyptian themed slot which has 5 reels and 40 winning paylines. This slot features stacked symbols which can fill an entire reel and when multiple stacked symbols line up in consecutive order across the reels (from left to right) the wins can be massive.
You can play on this slot either in the free play demo mode or in the real cash mode and it is available over Playtech instant flash casino platform and also from within their award-winning download client at several fully licensed online casinos. The Pyramid is the Scatter Symbol and the Cat Queen is the Wild Symbol and these two symbols can land on any of the reels.
The great thing about the Wild Symbol son this slot is that they can also appear stacked to fill an entire reel. These Wild Symbols have the ability to substitute all other symbols on the reels apart from the Pyramid Scatter Symbols and when three or more of the Scatter Symbols land in any position across the reels, a Free Spins Bonus Round will automatically trigger.
You will initially be awarded 15 Free Spins, but 15 more Free Spins can be re-triggered if three or more of the Scatter Symbols show up again from any of the Free Spins. The Wild Symbol is also active during this Free Spins Bonus Round. The only other special feature on this slot is a Double Up Gamble Feature and this is only ever active during regular play.
After a line win has been awarded, you will have the option of being able to try and double those winnings by clicking on the DOUBLE button which is beneath the Auto Play button. If you choose to gamble your winnings, you will get to play in a mini side game where you can double your entire winnings or you can try and double half of your winnings.
Simply click the amount that you wish to gamble and then follow the instructions. You basically have to click on one of the face down cards and hope that it is higher than the dealer’s face up card. The other special feature is a Turbo Mode which you can select at the start of each spin. This basically speeds up game play and reduces the amount of in-play animations that are usually displayed.
Cat Queen is a great new slot from Playtech, especially if you enjoy the Ancient Egyptian theme and it can now be found in more than 10 fully licensed Playtech powered online casinos.

Net Entertainment is a leading Swedish-based online casino software provider which we have discussed many times before in the past. This innovative game developer is known for several of its very own unique titles such as Mega Fortune, Arabian Nights, Gonzo’s Quest, Starburst and Jack Hammer (1 and 2).
It has also developed a growing range of branded online slot machines such as South Park, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein, Scarface and Aliens. The official launch date for their latest slot, one called Attraction, is on Wednesday 21st August 2014. If you can’t wait for this slot to arrive, you can already find it over at Betsafe Casino.
Some of the other NetEnt casinos that will also add this new slot as soon as it arrives will no doubt include Mr Green Casino, Bet365 Vegas (aka Vegas at Bet365), Casino Euro, bgo Vegas, Unibet Casino and Tropezia Palace Casino. This is a non-downloadable slot which has 5 reels and 10 winning paylines and it has a top coin prize worth 50,000 coins.
The wide betting range is suitable for low rollers and high rollers and although it doesn’t have a second screen bonus round or a free spins bonus round, it does have regular Wild Symbols, Sticky Wild Symbols, a unique Magnet Feature and Re-Spins. Wild Symbols will only ever land on the three middle reels and they will substitute all other symbols on the reels.
Sticky Wild Symbols will only appear during a Re-Spin and these Re-Spins are triggered in the following way: Each time a Wild Symbol appears on the same row or on the same reel as a Magnet, it will trigger 1 Re-Spin and it will also award a minimum of 1 Sticky Wild. During the Re-Spin, two Magnets will be active.
An additional Re-Spin and more Sticky Wilds can also then be awarded if the Wild Symbols land on the same row or reel as a Magnet again. This can keep on happening until the reels end up filled with Regular/Sticky Wild Symbols. When this bonus feature is in a good mood, it can award huge prizes, so you often end up with ‘Big Wins’, ‘Super Wins’ and ‘Mega Wins’.
This is a great new slot from NetEnt, even though it is lacking in the bonus round department, but it’s easy to play and it should instantly appeal to a wide audience.

Microgaming recently added a brand new Jurassic Park online slot machine video to its official YouTube Channel. This new slot is based on the 1993 Hollywood Blockbuster movie of the same name which starred Sam Neill (as Dr. Alan Grant), Laura Dern (as Dr. Ellie Sattler), Jeff Goldblum (as Dr. Ian Malcolm) and Richard Attenborough (as John Hammond).
This award-winning online casino software provider signed a licensing agreement with Universal Partnerships & Licensing, which gave them the permission to produce this stunning new slot. “Jurassic Park is a seminal movie - its stunning visual effects and computer-generated imagery set a new benchmark in the industry,” said the Microgaming CEO, Roger Raatgever.
This new slot has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin and it will no doubt end up on Microgaming’s Flash, Quickfire and download platforms at various Microgaming casinos such as Gaming Club Casino, 32Red Casino, Betway Casino, Casino Euro, Jackpot City Casino, All Slots Casino, Royal Vegas Casino, Crazy Vegas Casino, Euro Palace Casino, Spin Palace Casino and Platinum Play Casino.
There are five different Free Spins Modes on this new slot and each Free Spin mode comes with its very own unique special feature. For example you can win prizes from 6-of-a-kind wins instead of just 5-of-a-kind wins thanks to the Split Wild Symbols. You can also win huge prizes during the T-Rex Alert Feature where up to 35 additional Wild Symbols can be added to the reels to hopefully generate some huge winning combinations.
Look out for Stacked Wild Symbols, Wild Reels, Respins, Running Wilds (with special Nudge Feature), Wild Multipliers, Mystery Multipliers and so much more. Also keep an eye out for cinematic clips from the actual movie. These mini animated sequences usually trigger after certain line wins occur.
“It's a film that we can draw parallels from in terms of our game creation and our aim to deliver the most visionary and imaginative gaming experiences to the end player. The Jurassic Park brand is legendary, and our game development team is busy creating an all-mighty slot for release later in the year,” added the CEO. We obtained these comments from Microgaming’s official website.
Microgaming first previewed this slot back in February at the annual ICE Totally Gaming event. Hopefully the long wait for this new slot to arrive is almost over. At soon as we hear any more about this new slot we will let you know.

The latest online slot machine from Betsoft Gaming is a Fruit/Asian themed 3D slot machine called Fruit Zen. This is a non-downloadable slot which has 5 reels and 10 winning paylines, it can be launched instantly in your browser at several top Betsoft Gaming powered casinos and it is available in the real money mode and in the free play mode.
Speaking about the release of this brand new slot was the Head of Product Development at Betsoft Gaming, Anthony Locke, “Fruit Zen is a gorgeous true 3D gaming experience. It is important to us to develop video slots of all styles, and once again we bring the broadest range of beautifully animated themes to the market. The 3D water effect in the background is a tremendous artistic accomplishment, sure to soothe and delight all players who choose Fruit Zen for entertainment.”
The best thing about this new slot is the Fruit Zen Wild Symbol. This can expand to cover an entire reel when it lands on the three middle reels (reels 2, 3 and 4). When the Wild Symbol does expand, it will cause a respin of the remaining reels and hopefully this will also result in a line win. This new slot should start to appear in more Betsoft Gaming powered casinos over the next few weeks, but if you want to play on it right now you’ll need to head over to Tropezia Palace Casino.
The new IGT Interactive slot is called 100 Ladies and this one is also a non-downloadable slot which is available in the real money mode and in the free play mode. 100 Ladies has an insect/nature theme with 5 reels and a whopping 100 winning paylines. The Bonus Symbol is the word Bonus and the Wild Symbol is the group of Ladybirds.
When three Bonus Symbols show up on the middle reels (reels 2, 3 and 4), you will be awarded 10 Free Spins and 2X times your total bet. Free Spins can also be retriggered (which seems to happen quite often) and they are re-triggered in the same way that they were triggered during regular play. If you want play on this slot right now, you’ll need to head over to Mr Green Casino, but hopefully this one should also become more widely available over the next few weeks. The comments contained within this article came from the official Betsoft Gaming website.
