Microgaming set to release two new video slots May 8th.
Online software developer Microgaming is set to release two brand new original games during the month of May, a football themed video slot named "Football Star" and another werewolf themed slot dubbed "Cool Wolf". The two games will be made available on Microgaming's Flash, download, HTML5 and Quickfire platforms simultaneously on May 8th.
With the 2014 FIFA World Cup looming in the very near future, Microgaming is setting the scene with Football Star, a 243-ways-to-win slot with a max payout of 107,750 coins. Football Star introduces a whole new feature: "Striking Wild". In accordance with the football theme, landing the Striking Wild will trigger an actual top striker player who'll kick a football into reels 2, 3 or 4, turning the entire reel wild and increasing winning chances. Other than the Striking Wild, Football Star features stacked wilds, the usual scatter symbols represented by a flaming football which can yield up to 15 freespins, and a Rolling Reels feature giving a 10x multiplier to all wins.
Anyone who has watched actor Michael J. Fox in the 1985 somewhat of a cult-movie "Teen Wolf" will instantly recognize Cool Wolf's theme. A 243-ways-to-win video slot, Cool Wolf sets players in the cool 50s retro town of Howlingwood with hot rods, cheerleaders and one seemingly nerdy guy who turns into a werewolf triggering the Howling Wild feature turning reels 2, 3 or 4 into guaranteed wins. Up to 25 freespins can be had with the scatter symbol, together with the Rolling Reels feature which can give up to 10x multiplier. Cool Wolf's maximum jackpot offers a £105,000 prize.
