Microgaming is treating players to not just one new slot this April, but two: Dream Date and Diamond Empire. While Microgaming has produced some fairly awesome adventure-themed slots in the past (think Avalon II, Jurassic World, and more), these two new slots are certainly of the calmer variety. But given that they come from the industry leader, you can count on vivid graphics, smooth gameplay, and special features designed to intrigue and reward.
Dream Date is a slot that lets you take part in the setup, which is kind of fun. Before you start playing, you choose from two settings — historic or modern — and you then choose from four male dream dates (which range from pirates to James Bond-like figures depending on the era you choose).
When your lady and dream date land next to each other on the reels, they trigger cash wins and/or free spins bonus games. There is also an expanding wild on Reel 3 that offers a 2x multiplier when you win, ultimately with the potential to award as much as 1800x your original bet.
All in all, the theme and the special features come together to create a lighthearted, feel-good game, perfect for when you're looking for simple fun and amusement.
Diamond Empire is the creation of Triple Edge Studios, an online gaming developer recently acquired by Microgaming. While Triple Edge falls under the Microgaming umbrella, its slots have their own unique style, and Diamond Empire is no different.
The theme is art nouveau and the slot combines elements of classic and modern into one sleek game. While on the surface it looks simple enough — 3 reels, 15 paylines — the slot is packed with multipliers that have the potential to award 650x your original stake. It also features a Wheel Bonus that can potentially award up to 888x your original stake.
However, this is as far as it goes in terms of special features; there are no free spins. But if you like straightforward gameplay with potentially high payouts, Diamond Empire is a good choice.
Look to find these two new titles at Microgaming casinos next month.
