Festive season releases from Microgaming

News on 7 Dec 2017

Online gambling software and games developer Microgaming has announced the addition of two more games to kick off the festive season, in addition to its recently launched Highlander online slot.

Holly Jolly Penguins, a five-reel, 45-fixed pay-line online slot that combines vibrant holiday graphics, a cheerful soundtrack and a host of charming penguins head the additions. Full of personality, the cast of nine arctic penguins make up the symbols in the game as wilds, scatters and high-paying symbols.

The game features two unique wild symbols that appear stacked on all reels, characterised by two jolly penguins in colourful snow globes – Lorenzo and Quincy – who will grace the reels in a bid to fill players’ stockings rewards.

Meanwhile, Sledding Penguins serve as the scatter symbol within the game. Landing three or more anywhere on the reels awards the player with a scatter pay. The Sledding Penguins can also trigger or retrigger the free spins feature and up to 80 free spins can be awarded.

Players can join the wild sleigh ride in Holly Jolly Penguins, which went live with Microgaming and Quickfire operators on Wednesday 6 December.

Microgaming’s second offering for the festive season is the fruity world of Wacky Panda, where a group of zany characters await players in this simple three-reel, one pay-line online slot. Featuring colourful graphics, the game brings to life five pandas, each with its own unique personality to entertain players as they spin in the search for rewards.

With a modern take on the traditional three-reel slot, Wacky Panda allows players to choose how much they can win by selecting to wager one, two or three coins, where wins can go up to 3333x the player’s bet.

Each coin selection is immediately reflected in the paytable to ramp up the excitement for players as they see the potential winnings of each spin and the rewards each spin holds.

Players can enjoy some wacky wins and a chance to earn fruitful rewards in Wacky Panda which also went live on Wednesday.

David Reynolds, games publisher at Microgaming, said:

“2017 has been a very busy year for Microgaming with a wealth of new games released, including blockbuster branded titles from the action-packed Jurassic World and Highlander online slots, to the thrilling and the theatrical, The Phantom of the Opera and Halloween online slots. Not forgetting the launch of EmotiCoins earlier this year, a slot born from an idea pitched by staff at Microgaming’s very own innovation initiative.”
