January Recap : Microgaming

Book of Atem

The Book of Atem slot is a 5x3 slot featuring an exciting and challenging journey to an ancient Egyptian world full of unsolved mysteries. On the way to big wins, players have to face the pharaoh Atem, who will show them the path to his unseen riches. In addition to the game’s authentic music, this new take on a classic mythological-based theme has beautifully rendered graphics and smooth, eye-catching animation.

The game’s symbols include letters, tens, lotuses, falcons, and cobras, as well as Book of Atem symbols and Pharaoh symbols. The Book of Atem symbol serves a complex role as both the Wild and the Scatter. It is also the key to the feature when 3 or more symbols land on the reels. Before the Free Spins feature is in play, an Expanding symbol is picked. Re-triggers are available while a player is in the Free Spins mode. This high-volatility game has an RTP of 96.45%.

African Quest

African Quest is a 5x4 slot opening its doors to the wild grasslands of the savannah. A beautiful and colorful landscape in the background along with a variety of engaging features treats players as if they are on a safari full of excitement and big payouts.

As a wildly adventurous slot, the game symbols consist of some of the savannah’s main characters, such as lions, elephants, rhinoceros, giraffes and zebras. In addition to that, on the reels there are letters, nines, and tens, as well as a golden map with a picture of the African continent and a stamp with the grassland surroundings. The latter is the Wild that lands only on the 2, 3, and 4 reels, substituting for all symbols except for Scatters. The Scatter is a golden African map. 3 or more of the Scatter symbols lead to the Free Spins round. Before the round, players themselves have to choose the number of free spins and the range of the wild multipliers. Also, it is worth mentioning the Paid Respin feature that applies to every single reel after a base spin. The RTP is 96.02%.

The Incredible Balloon Machine

Microgaming’s new game serves players who don’t like either reels or paylines. The Incredible Balloon Machine is a game of pure luck that can end with huge wins. All players need to do is press and hold down the spin button, inflating a balloon. The only thing that has to be mentioned is that players must collect their wins before the balloon has popped.

To bring more fun and joy, the Multiplier feature has been added to the game. The feature can trigger randomly at any moment. There are two possible outcomes: the balloon may pop, sending players back to the base game, or a Pick Bonus Game can be activated. During the Bonus Game, players pick one balloon out of five, which leads to payouts or multipliers, with the possibility of another pick. The maximum number of the pick rounds is 8. This medium-volatility game has an RTP of 96.75%.
