After something of a post-Christmas lull, the new video slot launches at Paddy Power Casino are coming thick and fast with a quartet releases – Epic Ape, Gladiator Road to Rome, Da Vinci’s Vault and Pharaoh’s Treasure Deluxe. The first 3 are from Playtech.
The first new arrival is Epic Ape. Join the big beasts of the jungle in this unusual 6 reel, 4,096 ways to win slot. The highlight here is undoubtedly the Free Games feature where you’ll be awarded 8, 15, 25 or 100 free spins – you can also retrigger for unlimited free spins.
The wilds develop some magical properties during the feature too, multiplying payouts by up to 5x when they form part of a winning combination. Having the word epic in the title of anything is a bit of a hostage to fortune – Epic Ape just about manages to justify the billing.
Gladiator Road to Rome
From the jungle rainforests to the mighty Colosseum in Gladiator Road to Rome. This 5 reel, 25 payline slot is based on the Oscar-winning movie that made a star of Russell Crowe. The best chances of landing a big prize here come from the Colosseum Free Games feature which are spiced up with added wilds, multipliers, nudging wilds and scatter pays. You’ll also have a shot at landing a bumper progressive jackpot prize via the Gladiator Bonus.
Da Vinci’s Vault
The amazing Renaissance-era polymath Leonardo Da Vinci is the star of Da Vinci’s Vault. Superbly designed, this 5 reel, 20 payline game features some of Da Vinci’s most famous creations, including of course the Mona Lisa which offers payouts of 500 times your stake if you land 5 on a payline.
As well as a Free Spins feature, you can also up your stakes and play in Hi Roller mode which offers extra free spins and even bigger potential cash awards. It’s not especially volatile but there are secrets aplenty to discover in Da Vinci’s Vault.
Pharoah’s Treasure Deluxe
Rounding out the quartet of new arrivals is Pharaoh’s Treasure Deluxe which is powered by Ash Gaming (part of Playtech) and with a name like that we can only be heading to ancient Egypt. Featuring all the usual hieroglyphs and animal gods, this 5 reel, 20 payline game comes with a pick me round as well as free spins.
Just like Da Vinci’s Vault you can play in Hi Roller mode. This adds a special symbol that transforms into a wild or bonus or awards multipliers or instant win prizes whenever it hits.
If you enjoy Playtech and Ash Gaming video slots, then you’ll be spoilt for choice with this week’s new arrivals at Paddy Power Casino. You are welcomed with a deposit £10, get £50 bonus offer (you’ll start spinning with £60 in total). The welcome package also includes 20 free spins on Space Invaders.
