Monthly updates to gambling software clients often bring new online pokies, or slot machines, to the iGaming masses. We’re used to receiving a few new titles from big-wig creators like Microgaming each time we flip the calendar, but this October, they seem to be breeding like rabbits!
This month, a throng of new internet pokies were unveiled by a range of top-quality developers. They include titles from such companies as CORE Gaming, Endorphina, Genesis Gaming, Play’n Go and Realistic Games. We’ll take a quick look at their latest creations.
5 New Pokies from CORE Gaming
CORE Gaming supplies interactive gaming content for about a dozen clients, including Betfair and Ladbrokes. Last month, the developer successfully strategized a single-code HTML5 technology that allows them to create all new games for both mobile and desktop clients.
The first single-code game released under the new platform, Super 6 Instant Win, was released last month, followed by three new online pokies in early October, Colossus Fracpot, Hidden Treasures and The Sky’s The Limit, and two more just last week, Beehive Bedlam Reactor and Reel Force Five.
The Vikings arrive from Endorphina
This relatively new online games developer from Prague made a huge splash this Spring when it began licensing its first 30+ games to major online casino operators. The company raised the bar in terms of quality, and has continued to do so with each new release, including this month’s launch of The Vikings.
The 5 reel, 20 payline poker machine features standard wilds, stacked wilds and scatters. Endorphina admits that the pay-table is not your standard variety, but then again, neither are the payouts. “It might not be that easy to win,” reads the game’s official description, “but when you do, you can win really big.”
Genesis Gaming launches Star Crystals
This sci-fi themed reel spinner was developed by Genesis Gaming as an exclusive edition to the OpenBet platform on SkyVegas. Star Crystals features 5 reels with ‘All Pays’ (243 ways), free spins and several randomly-triggered bonuses.
The new online pokies’ most endearing quality is that it carries an extensive backstory with alien lifeforms known as ‘Extremophiles’ and ‘Groks’, rare ‘rainbow crystals’, and the Space Protection Agency (S.P.A.) charged to defend them.
Happy Halloween from Play’n Go
Capturing the spirit of the holiday season, Play’n Go has delivered Happy Halloween, a spook-tacular new 5 reel, 50 payline poker machine featuring pumpkins, witches, ghosts, mummies and lots of delectable treats. The free spins phase is especially rewarding as each spin adds two more static wild jack-o-lanterns to the reels to progressively increase the odds of winning with every free spin.
Realistic Games sets off Fireworks
Last but not least is a new online pokies game from Realistic Games called Fireworks. It was developed using HTLM5 coding for universal play on desktop, tablet and mobile devices. The symbols include some rather typical poker machine icons, like jewels, gold bars and stacks of cash, but the number one goal of players is to set off the firework right of the 5th reel.
The fuse to the firework lays across the bottom of the reels, and is lit with each new spin. It takes three alike symbols per reel to keep the fuse lit so it can reach the 5th reel and set off the firework. Otherwise the fuse is extinguished until the following spin. And when the fireworks go off, the winnings become explosive!
