We’re nearly halfway through May and you could well have noticed a couple of brand new additions to the slots sections at the leading Microgaming mobile casinos – something that won’t have come as a big surprise as they are always on hand with new releases each and every month. They are both slots, but this too is unsurprising given that Microgaming is already responsible for one of the biggest and best selections of mobile table games and video poker out there. So, we introduce Football Star and Treasure Palace to the casino floor, and they offer even more by way of brand new action.
If you’ll excuse the pun, Football Star is the undoubted star of the show as it has been released to coincide with the World Cup. While not officially licensed in any way, it brings plenty of action to the reels and gives players a chance to play the slots while watching a game at the pub, or anywhere else for that matter. It is the latest multi-platform release from the company, something that is becoming increasingly common, and allows players to enjoy the game both on their desktop, smartphone or tablet without having to change betting strategies or anything else for that matter.
The basics are fairly standard Microgaming fare, with five reels of symbols and 243 ways to win on every spin. Core bonus action is taken care of by a free spins round where you could well be on the receiving end of 25 free spins and a potential ten times multiplier thanks to the Rolling Reels. These reels also come into play during regular play, and you can take advantage of the multiplier whether the bonus game hits or not. There are also stacked reels to take advantage of, not to mention the unique Striking Wild where a ball will land on the screen and turn an entire reel into wild cards.
Perhaps the most outstanding feature of the game is one of the first ever developer led promotions. Microgaming has backed up the launch of the title with the opportunity to win a trip to Rio for the World Cup Final, which includes not only match tickets but also flights and accommodation. Every £20 wagered on Football Star between now and the 8th June will offer one entry into a prize draw to scoop this once in a lifetime prize!
Commenting on the launch of the new game, Neill Whyte, Microgaming’s Head of Product Channels, said: “As we look forward to the start of the world’s largest football tournament, Football Star is the perfect launch for May. Both mobile and online players will be able to experience this striking game on any device.”
Football Star is backed up by the launch of Treasure Palace, which is a notably simpler game but by no means any less exciting. As the name suggests, the game is all about treasure and you’ll find that the reels feature all sorts of gems, chests and more. With only nine win lines to keep an eye on, you won’t even need to pay that much attention to the game itself, and various wilds and scatters will lead to even more great prizes, up to a top end of a 10,000 coin standalone jackpot.
These new additions bring Microgaming’s mobile portfolio up to a stunning 53 games, with many more slated for release in the coming months. You can play both games across a wide range of devices and for real cash at the top Microgaming casinos now, including Platinum Play and All Slots.
