5 Microgaming online slots to enjoy in 2018
Which new Microgaming slots can you enjoy in 2018? We pick out five of the most popular slot titles to play in 2018.
Leading software provider Microgaming are known for their prodigious online slots output.
Year after year, the UK developer releases over a dozen new online slots to the online casino games market to sit alongside fan favourites like Mega Moolah and Immortal Romance.
So, what delights have Microgaming served up in 2018? Let's take a closer look at some of the biggest and best recent releases.
1. Temple of Tut
Released: May 2018
Slot features: Stacked wilds, 'Super Reels', free spins
Microgaming have already released two Egyptian-themed slots in 2018. Wild Scarabs is a good slot for players who love 243 ways to win, but Temple of Tut is one for the stacked wild fans.
The slot features 10 paylines which run both left-to-right and right-to-left. But it's Microgaming's new 'Super Reels' feature that puts other Egyptian-themed slots in the shade. It can randomly appear during the base game, adding massive stacked wilds to the reels.
During the free spins bonus feature, meanwhile, the Super Reels are always active. Players can also re-trigger the feature to win up to 30 free spins.
It's volatile, but Temple of Tut might be the Egyptian-themed game you've been waiting for.
2. Deco Diamonds
Released: March 2018
Slot features: Classic slot feel, stacked reels, bonus wheel
There has been a recent trend of slot providers making modern updates of classic slots, and Deco Diamonds is Microgaming's contribution to the pile.
Deco Diamonds plays on five reels that look more like authentic fruit machine drums. The symbols are represented by classic slot icons such as melons, peaches, and lemons, but each one contains a valuable diamond.
The major draw of Deco Diamonds is the bonus wheel, triggered by landing three or more scatters. There are three levels of wheel payout - silver, gold, and diamond - with the diamond wheel awarding up to 1000x the player's total stake.
3. Playboy Gold
Released: March 2018
Slot features: Solid brand, 100 paylines, 6 reels, jumbo blocks, wheel of fortune bonus
The Playboy brand continues to be popular with slot fans, and Microgaming's latest tie-up, Playboy Gold, gives players the chance to hit big prizes with a super stacked 10-row, 6-reel structure.
Playboy Gold was developed by Triple Edge Studios, one of a group of independent software houses now providing games exclusively to Microgaming.
As you play on this giant set of reels, "jumbo blocks" containing a single stacked wild can land to improve the player's win. These spread over six rows and four reels and contain a single animated bunny girl.
It's an interesting move for Microgaming, who recently released another big reel game in Fortunium. That slot plays over a set of 5x5 reels and features added mystery reels and symbols.
4. Dream Date
Released: April 2018
Slot features: 243 ways to win, personalised gaming, Hot Zone feature and stacked wilds
Microgaming practically invented the 243-ways-to-win slot format, and it's put to good use in the new Dream Date game.
Dream Date first gets the player to select an era in which to play the game: historic or modern.
Next, players must select their 'dream date' - one of four male characters from history or the modern era (think Casanova or the pirate from history, or James Bond or a fireman from more modern times).
The chosen icon then becomes the highest-paying symbol in the game.
Dream Date also has a 'Hot Zone' feature where prizes are awarded whenever the 'dream date' and the lucky lady appear on the reels at the same time. Free spins will also be triggered.
Microgaming have been here before, of course, with Immortal Romance - a classic love story packed with intrigue and big bonuses.
5. Diamond Empire
Released: April 2018
Slot features: Stacked wilds, free spins, wild multipliers, achievements
Finally, another Triple Edge Studios release. Diamond Empire features a cool achievements feature that rewards players as the game progresses.
The slot plays like a classic three-reel game but there are 15 paylines available. Three bonus symbols will trigger a wheel bonus with a top prize worth 888x the total stake.
Wild multipliers also double your base game wins.
