A reasonably notorious holiday event happens towards the end of October – as if you need telling what that is – and Microgaming is on hand as it always is for such events with a trio of new horror slots. Okay, one of them technically comes from Rabcat, but they deliver their games through Microgaming’s mobile platform and you will be able to find it at the very same mobile casinos as the other two, so why not include it here? We have seen a big uptick in the quality of Microgaming’s new releases in recent months, buoyed by the likes of Fruit vs Candy and Pollen Party, and it goes without saying that we hope that it can continue on three games that are sure to get every player in the spooky mood.
The Big Event – Halloween
Yes, the big event is Halloween, but potentially even bigger for players is… Halloween! A new branded slot is always cause for excitement at the MobileCasino.net offices, but when it is based on one of our favourite movie series of all time, well, the excitement goes into overdrive. Michael Myers will be making his first appearance on the Microgaming reels on the official Halloween slot, so anyone with a passion for slasher flicks will be all over this one.
Just as hoped, the developer has gone big on this one, and we mean that in all sorts of ways. Players have fifty win lines to look forward to, so you can expect the wins to flow before the features even get started, but when they do then the influence of the licence really becomes clear. Wandering reels are joined by free spins, pick bonuses and massive top prizes, and the whole atmosphere is every bit as spooky as players would hope. It has been a while since we have been so amped for a new slot release, but you can be sure that we will be all over this one over in the review section as soon as it becomes available!
Wacky Races on the Monster Wheels
The Halloween slot has been in development for ages, and if we are to be perfectly honest, it has probably been finished for a while. However, it is not the kind of game that you can just release in April, is it? Either way, it has given Microgaming ample time to bolster their selection with an original creation and it comes in the form of Monster Wheels, featuring Dracula, the devil and many more iconic horror characters, complete with their race cars of choice. It is very cartoonish, so players will not be expecting to be scared silly by this one, but it suits the nature of Halloween as far as we are concerned, so that is a pretty decent start.
In its own way, this slot actually looks to be every bit as intriguing as the movie tie-in, not least because it offers a choice of 128 or 288 ways to win, complete with a dynamic board. It doesn’t look set to overdo it with the bonus features, with free spins being the obvious choice, but choice is indeed the key word as there will be three different free spins rounds to choose from. Could it be that October will bring two high quality Microgaming releases at the same time? Time will tell, but you can be sure of finding out first here at MobileCasino.net!
The Rabcat Offering – Moby Dick
You may not have heard of Rabcat, but if you play at the best Microgaming mobile casinos, there is every chance that you will have at least seen their games. Microgaming is not only the biggest developer in the world of its own games, but also serves as a delivery platform for the smaller fish out there, and fish are exactly what players can expect this month with yet another game based on the tale of Moby Dick. Is it a Halloween slot? Probably not if we’re getting technical, but he was quite the monster! We’re not entirely sure whether there will be much by way of new action on this one, but with 25 win lines, sticky wins with respins and up to twenty free spins on offer at all times, it looks set to be at least a minor hit.
All three of these games are scheduled for an early October release, meaning that there is not long to wait before we – and you – can get our hands on the hotly anticipated Halloween slot, complete with the iconic theme music. We’ll have the lowdown on the day of release here on the site, and if you want to be prepared to get playing right away on a couple of inevitable hits, be sure to check out our detailed coverage of the best Microgaming mobile casinos and apps, right here on the site.
