Microgaming has released two brand new online slot machines in October 2014. One of these new slots was a Single-Player slot machine called Red Hot Devil and the other new slot was a Multi-Player slot machine called Playboy Multi-Player (or Multi-Player Playboy). These new slots can both now be found in numerous fully licensed Microgaming powered casinos.
“We value our partnership with Microgaming and are delighted to build off of the success of the Live Dealer product and online slot to further enhance our offering with a Multi-player online slot. It's another great way for online players to experience the exhilarating world of Playboy,” said Matt Nordby, Playboy's President for Global Licensing. These comments came from the official Microgaming website.
The new Playboy Multi-Player slot is only available in the real cash mode and it can only be found within the Microgaming casino download client, whereas the new Red Hot Devil slot can be found across Microgaming’s Flash, download AND Quickfire platforms and this new hell/devil/fire themed slot is available in both the real cash mode and in the free play mode.
“Red Hot Devil is an eye-catching game thanks to its bright artwork and rock 'n' roll theme. But what makes it even more appealing to players is its fast-paced gameplay and bonus choice, which offers players the opportunity to tailor their gaming experience. With that in mind, we expect this game to be very popular,” said Microgaming’s Head of Casino Games, Mike Hebden. These words also came from the Microgaming website.
The new Multi-Player slot has 5 reels and 20 winning paylines and it is Microgaming’s fifth Multi-Player slot. Others include Multi-Player Avalon, Multi-Player Isis, Multi-Player No Worries and Multi-Player Wheel of Wealth. The new Multi-Player Playboy slot machine can now be found in several great gaming sites such as Betway Casino, 32Red Casino, Gaming Club Casino, Jackpot City Casino, Spin Palace Casino, Ruby Fortune Casino, Casino-Mate, Roxy Palace Casino, Vegas Palms Casino, Platinum Play Casino and Royal Vegas Casino.
“Playboy is one of the most recognisable brands in the world – it has 97% unaided global brand awareness. So to be able to bring our popular Playboy online slot to Multi-player is very exciting. It is an ideal acquisition tool and provides our operators with a fantastic opportunity for creative and engaging marketing campaigns,” said the Microgaming Product Manager for Multi-Player Games, James Ford.
If you enjoy playing on these new slots from Microgaming, you may also want to check out some of their other most exciting titles such as Avalon 2, Thunderstruck 2, Girls with Guns (1 and 2), Immortal Romance, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Battlestar Galactica, Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park.

There are five different Monkey Wild Symbols on this slot and also the regular Banana Wild Symbol. When any of the five Wild Monkeys appear on the reels, they will turn themselves (and some of the adjacent symbols) into new Wild Symbols, depending on their individual patterns. Each monkey’s pattern can be found in the paytable.
Keep an eye out for the Wild Gorilla, the Wild Orangutan, the Wild Baboon, the Wild Langur and the Wild Tarsier. The Wild Symbols will substitute all other symbols on the reels and they can land on any of the reels. You can take one spin on this slot from just 0.20 coins up to no more than 200.00 coins per spin, it has some vibrant colours with great animated sequences for you to enjoy and the action is accompanied by some authentic sounds of the jungle.

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.
