New Microgaming slots preview: Betway Casino's May releases
Are you itching to play top new Microgaming slots at Betway Casino? Let's explore the newest online slot releases coming your way in May 2019.
The new Microgaming slot releases keep coming thick and fast in 2019. After the action-packed adventures of Agent Jane Blonde Returns and the atmosphere of Arctic Valor, what's in store for Betway Casino slots players this spring?
Let's take a closer look at the hot new slots coming to Betway in May.
Lara Croft Temples and Tombs
Slot highlights: Free spins, multiplier trail, Rolling Reels, high volatility
Released: 8 May
Microgaming has a range of slots based on the exploits of video game star, Lara Croft.
It's been a while since Microgaming released the excellent Tomb Raider Secret of the Sword, but they are back this May with another themed slot: Lara Croft Temples and Tombs.
Developed by independent studio, Triple Edge Studios, Lara Croft Temples and Tombs features upgraded graphics and sound FX. Players can also bet 243 ways to win, as opposed to the 30 paylines of Tomb Raider Secret of the Sword.
This new release uses Microgaming's trademark Rolling Reels feature.
If you hit a successful payline, the winning symbols will disappear from view. They are then replaced by symbols sitting above on the reels. If you hit consecutive winning spins, you will win a progressive multiplier on your payouts.
An interesting aspect of some modern slots is the ability to collect bonus symbols to use later. In Lara Croft Temples and Tombs, you can collect wild symbols as they appear in the base game. Collect enough wilds and you will trigger the Scarab Jackpot.
A set of stone circles will appear on the screen and rotate until three scarabs are lined up. You will then win the corresponding jackpot. There are three progressives to trigger: the smallest Minor, the Major, or the big Grand jackpot.
Players can also activate a free spins bonus in the game. Up to 32 free spins are played on a separate set of reels which features a higher multiplier trail than the base game.
If you are a fan of the Tomb Raider slots, video games, or films, you'll want to check out this great new Microgaming release.
Slot highlights: Free spins, respin feature, choice of 81/243 ways to win
Released: 15 May
Independent studio Just For The Win have enjoyed a fruitful relationship with Microgaming over the past two years. Their first release for Microgaming casinos was Goldwyn's Fairies, a colourful fantasy-themed slot. But the new Reel Splitter game sees JFTW go back to basics.
Reel Splitter is JFTW's take on the classic slot machine. It's a 4-reel, 3-row slot which allows for 81 paylines in the base game. Interestingly, however, the paylines can expand to 243 ways to win in the bonus feature.
If you hit a winning spin with four symbols, you can trigger the Reel Split Respin feature. An additional reel will appear which increases the chances of hitting a winning combination.
Look out for the free spins bonus too.
If you land three or four free spins symbols on the screen, you will win eight or 16 spins respectively. Free spins are played with 243 ways to win, and the game plays both ways.
In addition, the middle reel is transformed into a stacked wild symbol. This will remain in place for the duration of the bonus game.
