Microgaming will be launching two new online pokies at some point in March 2015 called Lucky Leprechaun and Golden Princess and then a new branded pokie called Bridesmaids will arrive in August. Let’s start by taking a quick look at the new pokies that will be arriving in March.
The new Lucky Leprechaun pokie has 5 reels and 20 winning paylines. This game has a fun Irish theme, plus it could also be classed as a Luck themed pokie or even as a Leprechaun themed pokie. The Scatter Symbol is the Gold Coin, the Wild Symbol is the Leprechaun and the Bonus Symbol is the Pot of Gold.
The main Bonus is the Trail O’ Fortune Bonus and this will trigger when three or more of the Pot of Gold Bonus Symbols land in any positon across the reels. Depending on how many Bonus Symbols actually triggered this bonus round will determine how many spins you get to take during this fun side game.
All you need to do is hit spin and then the number that the wheel lands on will determine how many paces you can move along the trail. The lowest prizes available during this bonus is 30x times your total bet and the maximum prize up for grabs is worth up to 1000x times your total bet. Two shortcuts along the trail can also help you win a much larger prize.
The Free Spins Bonus on this pokie will trigger when the Gold Coin Scatter Symbol lands in any position on reel 5 (the rightmost reel). When this happens, 5 Free Spins and a 2X Multiplier will instantly be awarded. Also keep an eye out for Gold Clovers and Green Clovers during this bonus round. Gold Clovers can boost the Multiplier and Green Clovers awards an extra Free Spin.
The Golden Princess pokie has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines with an Ancient Aztec theme. Win big prizes during the Free Spins Bonus and also keep an eye out for Random Multipliers which can boost your total line bet by up to 10X. The Scatter Symbol is the Treasure Chest and the Wild Symbol is the Temple.
The other new pokie coming soon from Microgaming is a branded pokie called Bridesmaids. This one is based on the 2011 Universal Pictures movie of the same name. “Bridesmaids is a comedy classic! The storyline, characters and genuinely hilarious stand-out scenes combine to make it one of the most successful comedy films of all time,” said Microgaming’s CEO, Roger Raatgever.
He continued, “We’re thrilled to have signed another licensing agreement with Universal. Furthermore, the brand adds a completely new dimension to our branded game portfolio – we’re excited for its launch later in the year.” We obtained these comments from the Microgaming website. This new action & feature packed pokie was actually previewed in London at the ExCel Center between 3rd and 6th February.
It will end up in NZ online casinos such as Cabaret Club Casino, Gaming Club Casino, Ruby Fortune Casino, Spin Palace Casino and Jackpot City Casino in about six months’ time. The new Bridesmaids pokie has a multilevel bonus round to win big prizes from and it has 5 reels and 40 winning paylines.
