Several great online slots were launched towards then end of November and also early into December, 2013. These new slots were launched by leading online casino software providers such as IGT Interactive, Rival Gaming, Realtime Gaming and Microgaming.
Two of the slots that we will take a look at from IGT included Masques of San Marco and Sumatran Storm. The San Marco one has a traditional Italian theme, plus it also has a carnival theme. It has 5 sets of reels, but each reel is stacked with as many as 6 individual symbols (from top to bottom).
There are 40 winning paylines and it actually has cascading reels, which means that you can win again and again. Each winning combination can trigger another line win and this will continue to happen until there are no more wins in view. Three of the Bonus Symbols appearing in any position across the reels can trigger Free Spins and you can gain a further 20 more paylines with the Extra Paylines Bonus.
The other IGT slot that we want to take a look at is called Sumatran Storm, which has 5 reels and 60 winning paylines. This is classed as one of IGT’s MultiwayXtra Slots (which basically means that there are 720 ways to win per spin). Keep an eye out for Stacked Wild Symbols across all reels, Scatter Symbols and also two different Tiger’s Eye Symbols which can trigger Free Spins. Up to 150 Free Spins can be won on this slot.
Rival Gaming is another top software provider which released a slot machine called Gnome Sweet Gnome. This slot has 5 reels and 50 winning paylines and it has a simple gardening bonus round which takes place on a second screen. All you need to do is dig the garden to reveal coins prizes. There is also a Free Spins bonus round where big prizes can be won.
In November 2013, Realtime Gaming launched another Christmas themed slot called Santastic. This slot has 3 reels and 5 winning paylines and there’s always a Progressive Jackpot to play for. Keep an eye out for Double Wild Symbols and Triple Wild Symbols and the Festive Feast Feature contains some great special features such as Free Spins, Jackpot Spins and up to a 2500x Stake Multiplier.
Microgaming also released a Christmas themed slot in December 2013, called Secret Santa. This Christmas themed slot has 5 reels 1024 ways to win per spin. This fantastic slot offers several fun & entertaining ways to win cash. It is an action packed slot which boasts seven special features such as a Scatter Spree, Free Spins, a Mystery Multiplier, Rolling Reels, Wild Reels, Dashing Wilds and also a Wild Boost Feature.
These great slots are all now widely available and they are all available in the real money mode and in the practice play mode/demo mode at various fully licensed online casinos.
