Date Added: September 1, 2016
On Wednesday 7th September, 2016, Microgaming will be launching the much anticipated online pokie, Jungle Jim – El Dorado. “We’ve been eagerly awaiting Jim’s El Dorado adventure, and now the game is ready to launch, we are very excited,” said Microgaming’s Head of Product Channels, Neill Whyte.
This new action packed online pokie is currently being previewed on Microgaming’s official YouTube channel, along with another new online pokie called Lost Vegas which is set to arrive in casinos towards the beginning of October. Speaking about the new Jungle Jim pokie, Whyte continued, “This character-led game is visually stunning and combines a set of proven features, such as the multiplier trail. We know operators are excited by this game and we believe Jungle Jim – El Dorado is all set to become a long-term player favourite.”
The new Lost Vegas online pokie has a Las Vegas/Zombie Apocalypse theme with 5 reels and 243 different ways to win per spin and the new Jungle Jim pokie has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines with an Adventure/Treasure theme. On the new Lost Vegas pokie you can win big during normal play thanks to the Zombie Fist of Cash Feature. Each time this feature randomly triggers you will receive a guaranteed coin prize.
Before you even get taken to the reels you must choose between two different game modes. This will determine the type of Bonus Feature that is active during the Free Spins Bonus Round, but you can easily switch between these two game modes during normal play. You can choose between the Survivor Mode and the Zombie Mode and this means that the Stash Feature or the Infection Feature will be active. There’s also the Blackout Bonus which uses night vision to hunt zombies and award a guaranteed cash prize for each zombie that is detected on the reels.
Some of the first Kiwi online casinos that will be adding these new pokies as soon as they are launched will include top Microgaming casinos such as Casino Mate, Royal Vegas Casino, Jackpot City Casino and Spin Palace Casino. These new pokies will both be launched across multiple platforms (Flash, download, Quickfire and mobile) and they will both be made available to players in the real money mode and in the free play demo mode. Let’s now take a look at a record-breaking win that recently occurred on mobile.
On Sunday 28th August 2016, one lucky player known only as D.P. won exactly €7,968,311.26 (which is approximately NZ$12,234,196.53) while playing on a mobile pokie from Microgaming called Mega Moolah. “With mobile gaming now accounting for almost half of all gameplay, it’s no surprise that we are seeing mega wins on this platform,” said Microgaming’s Head of Casino, John Quinn.
He finished by saying, “We are extremely proud to have the longest-standing and biggest progressive jackpot network in the market, which also holds a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title. To now claim the largest ever mobile jackpot win is very pleasing. On behalf of everyone at Microgaming, congratulations to D.P. on this mammoth mobile win.” These comments came directly from the official Microgaming website.
