A Feast Of Online Slots From Microgaming


Three new online slots across all formats and three popular desktop slots now in the mobile format are Microgaming’s Christmas gifts to its players. And these games have launched on December 6 at online casinos like All Slots, Jackpot City and 32Red.

Holly Jolly Penguins has been released keeping Christmas in mind. You celebrate the festival of good cheer at the North Pole with some cheeky but super cute penguins. These are Lorenzo the carol singer, Rudy the red-nosed rascal, Tania the snowball thrower, Sven the decorator-in-chief, Ole the tree trimmer and Larry and Darryl the sled riders. The base game has two wild symbols that can award like and mixed payouts. The sledding penguins can also stack on reels 2 and 3 yielding up to 7 scatter symbols on the reels. These penguins also trigger up to 80 free spins.

Wacky Panda is a 3-reels online slot with colourful graphics and animations that include a gushing waterfall, a bamboo forest, fruits and pandas as the symbols. This simple fast paced slot machine does not have the free spins feature. But there is an option to increase the coin value which cranks up the winning factor to a potential 3333 times your total stake.

The third new game is the branded slot game Highlander. It is based on a fantasy movie that was released in 1986 and achieved an enormous cult following. Many of the iconic characters from the blockbuster hit film appear as symbols on the reels including Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod, Roxanne Hart as Brenda Wyatt and Clancy Brown as The Kurgan. In the win animations you see them change from the earlier Scottish avatars to the modern New York ones. The slot game is in the 243 ways to win format. An interesting feature is that scatter symbols on the reels may randomly turn into wild ones. There is a regular free spins feature.

Scrooge is one of the slots appearing in the Microgaming mobile portfolio for the first time. It is based on the popular novel A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Players who are fans of the novel will see it unfold on the reels. The second addition to the mobile portfolio is also a Christmas themed slot game titled Santa’s Wild Ride. You see a new look Santa. He rides a motorcycle instead of a sleigh and consumes beer and sandwiches instead of milk and cookies. The final title is Vinyl Countdown.
