Microgaming adds slots ahead of the festive season

Microgaming is adding two more games ahead of the festive season, in addition to its Highlander online slot, according to a press release from the supplier.

Holly Jolly Penguins, which went live on Wednesday, is a five-reel, 45-fixed payline online slot that combines vibrant holiday graphics, a cheerful soundtrack and a host of charming penguins.

Full of personality, the cast of nine arctic penguins make up the symbols in the game as wilds, scatters and high-paying symbols. The game features two unique wild symbols that appear stacked on all reels, characterized by two jolly penguins in colourful snow globes; Lorenzo and Quincy will grace the reels to fill players’ stockings with big rewards.

Meanwhile, Sledding Penguins serve as the scatter symbol within the game. Landing three or more anywhere on the reels awards the player with a scatter pay. The Sledding Penguins can also trigger or retrigger the free spins feature and up to 80 free spins can be awarded.

Microgaming’s second offering for the festive season is Wacky Panda, a simple three-reel, one payline online slot.

Featuring colorful graphics, the game brings to life five pandas, each with its own unique personality to entertain players as they spin to win big prizes.

With a modern take on the traditional three-reel slot, Wacky Panda allows players to choose how much they can win by selecting to wager one, two or three coins, where wins can go up to 3333x the player’s bet.

Each coin selection is immediately reflected in the paytable to ramp up the excitement for players as they see the potential winnings of each spin and the rewards each spin holds.

David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, comments: “December is decked out with two more game additions from Microgaming, on top of our latest branded title, Highlander online slot.

“Holly Jolly Penguins is perfect for the festive season and features a cast of penguins ready to spread the cheer with scatter pays and retriggerable free spins. Meanwhile, Wacky Panda is fun, fast-paced and has a flexible bet selection that adds a modern twist to the classic three-reel setup.

“2017 has been a very busy year for Microgaming with a wealth of new games released, including blockbuster branded titles from the action-packed Jurassic World and Highlander online slots, to the thrilling and the theatrical, The Phantom of the Opera and Halloween online slots. Not forgetting the launch of EmotiCoins earlier this year, a slot born from an idea pitched by staff at Microgaming’s very own innovation initiative.

“We are very excited to showcase new content as we go into 2018, so watch this space as Microgaming will be revealing another wave of exciting releases and announcements to shake up the New Year.”
