Fantastic natural phenomena, a magical movie and a glorious ancient ruler take centre stage in this week’s biggest new video slot launches – Northern Sky, The Wizard of Oz Emerald City and Legend of Cleopatra.
Northern Sky – Quickspin
The amazing Aurora Borealis form the backdrop to the action in Northern Sky, a 5 reel, 9 payline video slot from Quickspin. Beautifully designed as usual, the game is played using an avalanche reels game engine where respins are awarded following every winning spin.
There’s also a Free Spins Bonus feature that awards 10 free spins. Not the most generous allocation at first glance but your winning chances are boosted though as all the lower value gemstone symbols are removed from play.
If seeing the Northern Lights is on your bucket list, this video slot is a pretty good appetizer and offers wins of 3,111 times your total bet on each spin! Check out the Northern Sky video slot review for more details.
The Wizard of Oz Emerald City – WMS
Next up is The Wizard of Oz Emerald City. Based on the classic 1939 film version starring Judy Garland as Dorothy, it’s a 5 reel, 243 ways to win video slot from WMS that features many of the most famous characters from the ever-popular movie.
Look out too for bubbles that can float onto to the reels and expand the symbols they land on to make new winning combinations. Trigger the bonus wheel and you’ll spin to win a cash prize, free spins (complete with expanding bubbles on each one) or a multi-stage pick me round.
WMS games haven’t always floated our boat but the design and features on offer make a stroll towards Emerald City well worth making – read The Wizard of Oz Emerald City video slot review for more info.
Legend of Cleopatra – Playson
Our final new arrival, Legend of Cleopatra, takes us to one of the most popular locations for video slot players and developers alike, ancient Egypt. This take on the classic theme comes from Playson. The action takes place on an unusual 6 reel game engine which looks like a pyramid tipped on its side. The 2x3x3x4x5x5 set up offers 100 paylines and plenty of action.
Highlights here include the Double Wild Reel feature – land a full stack of wilds in the 4 high reel and the wild will duplicate to fill another reel too. A new payout follows with the extra stacked wild in position.
The game also comes with a Free Spins feature that awards up to 30 free spins. The reels are flipped during the feature so reels 1 and 2 are 5 symbols high. The Double Wild Reels feature is in play here too which can lead to some spectacular action.
You’ve probably forgotten how many Egyptian-themed slots you’ve played already. This unusual offering is certainly worth adding to that list – read the Legend of Cleopatra video slot review for a full insight.
