A Look at Two New Microgaming Pokies Launched in January 2017
Date Added: January 5, 2017
Microgaming’s very latest online pokies include Huangdi The Yellow Emperor and Life of Riches and they both officially arrived in New Zealand online casinos on Wednesday 4th January, 2017. These new online pokies are available on desktop (download and Flash) and on mobile and they are both available in the real money mode and in the free play demo mode.
We can start by taking a quick look at the new Life of Riches pokie and then we can take a look at the new Huangdi pokie. The Life of Riches online pokie has a Money/Wealth/Luxury Lifestyle theme with 5 reels and 30 paylines. One spin starts from just 0.30 coins, the max cost per spin will set you back 60.00 coins and the top prize up for grabs on this new slot is fixed at 120,000.00 coins.
The Wild Symbol is the Life of Riches Logo and the Scatter Symbol is the Aeroplane. During normal play the Wild Symbol can double all line wins when helping to form a new line win and during the Free Spins Bonus the Wild Symbols can boost line wins by up to 4X. 10 Free Spins and a 2X Prize Multiplier will be awarded when three or more Scatter Symbols show up and during this bonus round the Wild Symbols are STACKED. Also keep an eye out for the Female Croupier Symbol because she can appear stacked during normal play and during the Free Spins Bonus.
The Huangdi online pokie (aka Huangdi The Yellow Emperor) has a Chinses Mythology theme with 5 reels and 25 paylines. This game has a really wide betting range and it allows you to take one spin of the reels from just 0.25 coins up to a maximum of 500.00 coins. When a Stacked Symbol covers reel 1 from top to bottom, all other matching symbols that are directly adjacent to this reel will also expand, but only when they can help form a new winning combination of symbols.
This new pokie also has a Free Spins Bonus and this will instantly trigger when three or more of the Dragon Scatter Symbols land anywhere in view. The Wild Symbol is also stacked during this exciting bonus which starts with a guaranteed prize of 15 Free Spins. Speaking recently about this new online pokie was the Games Publisher at Microgaming, David Reynolds.
He said, “It’s a great way to start the New Year with two games of highly contrasting styles. Of course, both are built around our engaging gameplay features, but the quality of the graphics, animations and sounds are what really bring these games to life.” He then went on to say;
“The game development teams work hard to ensure all facets of the games are true to the theme. For example, in Huangdi, the low symbols were designed to capture Chinese calligraphy, but the creative team had to ensure that the stroke direction and patterns were accurate when recreated digitally.” We managed to obtain these comments from a recent Microgaming press release.
