Alongside a whole host of slot releases planned for the month of March, we have also received news of a huge release coming later this year. This has made the past few weeks an exciting time for slot players, there is plenty on the horizon to look forward to.
Here is a look at the big news we have received recently, as well as the upcoming slot releases in March.
Microgaming Announced New Game of Thrones Slot Game
Developing giants Microgaming were quick to cash in on the phenomenon that was Game Of Thrones by releasing an officially licensed slot game based on the TV show back in 2014. Since the release of that game, many people have discovered and loved the TV show, with some of those moving onto the slot game and trying their luck on it.
The game showcased the first part of the TV series and the characters and houses that were involved in that. Now, it has been announced that a new game will be released this year to give players an up to date title they can play, focusing on the latter part of the series, which came to an end last year.
We have no official release date for this game yet, other than ‘later in 2020’ which has been the word from Microgaming. That won’t stop people counting down to this slot coming out, and there is every chance that the game could be the biggest release of 2020, even though we are only in February right now.
The hit show ended last year but that hasn’t stopped fans from continuing to talk about it, buy merchandise and wait for the rumoured spin-off shows to be created. It is likely that those will come in the next few years, and there appear to be no signs of the show popularity ending anytime soon.
For that reason, expect this game to be huge, receive a large amount of advertising from Microgaming and potentially be the biggest release of the year. It is certainly an exciting time for Game Of Thrones fans who like to play slots, they are on the verge of finally getting a new and up to date slot game they can play, based on their favourite TV show.
Two Irish Themed Slots Hit the Market Ahead of St Patrick’s Day
The biggest day in the Irish calendar is St Patrick’s Day, a huge celebration for Irish people. Ahead of that day, we have two Irish themed slot games hitting the market to get players in the spirit before their celebrations.
Red Tiger Gaming are releasing Leprechauns Magic in March, a game based on the creature of legend, a leprechaun. This theme is something we have seen a lot of when it comes to Irish slots, and it has always proved to be very popular with players.
The game has a very simple feel to it which will no doubt appeal to new slot players, with 5×3 reels and just 10 pay lines for you to play. Despite that, big payouts are possible with the maximum jackpot being 5000x your unit stake, so certainly something big for you to aim at while you are playing.
There are plenty of features on this slot game though, which will also help it appeal to more experienced slot players. Look out for free spins, and the amount is determined by you spinning the magic wheel, and also keep your eye on expanding symbols after a win. Should you land the same symbol again on the reels then this will turn gold and expand, leading to multiple wins across many different lines.
The second Irish title set for release in March is Lucky Emeralds from Playtech. This is another game that has a simple feel and look to it, with five reels and 10 pay lines that you can play. The maximum jackpot on this game is 500x your unit stake, so not the biggest but certainly enough to make playing this game worthwhile.
The wild symbol plays an important role in this game, which is used as a substitute for symbols and is available on every single reel. The wild also forms the highest paying combinations you can get on this game, which pay you 500x your unit stake. These need the wild symbol as part of them, so naturally, you need to always pay attention when this symbol is on the screen.
As you would expect from an Irish themed slot game, you see symbols such as emeralds, clovers and other Irish related objects on this game. The theme colour is predominantly green too, something else that makes this slot game work. This isn’t the most complex game you will play but if you are looking for a new, simple Irish themed game to try out then this is certainly worth looking at.
Pragmatic Play Release New Wild West Themed Slot
Pragmatic Play are another developer to bring us something new in March with the arrival of a Wild West-themed game. The game has been given the title Wild West Gold and will hit your screen in March.
The game has an excellent RTP% of 96.51% which is very high and because of that, it is no surprise to know that this is a very volatile game to play on. The game has 5×4 reels and that gives a total of 40 pay lines if you wish to play them all. The maximum jackpot you can win from this game is 10000x your stake amount, so there is a big win on the machine if you are lucky enough to land it.
A wild badge is the wild symbol on this game and this can be found on the middle three reels, combining with the symbols on the outer two reels to provide you with some potentially big wins. On top of this, to give you an even bigger win, the wilds also come with multipliers attached, and if you have more than one wild then you can add the multipliers together. These come as 2x, 3x and 5x, so the smallest multiplier is 2x while the biggest is 15x, if you land three wilds with 5x multipliers on them.
Sunsets are something else to look out for, these act as the scatter symbol. By landing three of these you will give yourself eight free spins to use, so they are certainly worth looking out for.
As for the theme, this is your typical wild west theme with a saloon and houses are shown in your typical frontier town setting. These are aided by symbols on the reels such as guns, wood, lanterns and much more related to the wild west theme. There are also four different characters to look out for, two men and two women just to add another element to this game.
If you are looking for a new slot game to try and you like the wild west theme then this is certainly one to take a look at. The game looks great, it is very easy to play and most of all, with a very good RTP%, there is the chance to win some money.
