It’s like waiting for a bus over at the creative offices at Play’n GO; you wait for one and many turn up at once! The same can be said for their video slots. It wasn’t long ago I brought you news on the latest craze; Honey Rush, a grid-based slot packed full of sweet cluster pays and bonus features, but now we’re back with news of not one, but two other slots – how impressive is that?
Doom of Egypt is a cross between Rise of Dead and Book of Dead; you’ve got the theme from the former and the bonus spins feature of the latter. It really is something magical, although, landing the bonus spins is no mean feat.
To unleash the power of the pharaohs, three or more scarab beetles must appear on the reels, if you can manage that, the bonus spins feature kicks off with a randomly chosen symbol to become an expanding symbol for the potential for colossal wins.
Jingle all the Way?
But with the festive season fast approaching, many have wondered if the Swedish software developer will produce something with a little more Christmas spirit, but sadly not. CEO Johan Törnqvist addressed the Christmas slot rumors by stating:
“Honey Rush and Doom of Egypt are two great games that we knew the market would react to. Rather than rushing out a game at this time of year for the quick holiday win, we’re putting more durable, longer-lasting titles out into the market that will do just as well and have a longer shelf life.”
Johan continued: “There’s a place for themed games and always will be, but we’re not going to force it. If we come up with a great game for the holiday, we’ll put it out, but we have plenty of titles that everyone will love no matter what time of year!”
Hit the Stage:
The latest video slot to roll off the slot production belt at Play’n GO is Black Mamba, the 5×5 grid slot based on a popular Italian rock band of the same name. Teaming up with the rockers meant the software developer could deliver a musical masterpiece with invaluable input from each of the four members; Martina Cori (vocals), Alexandra Maiolo (guitar), Cecilia Nappo (bass) and Federico Maragoni (drums)…
…and they were involved from the start to the finish, including the graphics and soundtrack which is taken from their latest album; Black Mamba II. Bonus features can be triggered on non-winning spins – keep your eyes on the solo artist appearing for one of four symbol-shifting displays or clear the grid entirely to land the bonus spins with big win potential – up to £500k to be precise.
An exclusive gig has been scheduled to celebrate the release of the latest slot, which will coincide with the first evening of SIGMA on November 27th and taking to the stage I Black Mamba along with Demon; the English rock band who also appear in the slot.
Adding his comments on their company’s unique approach to slot making, CEO Johan said: “Creativity and innovation are at the heart of everything we do; we want to take this form of entertainment into new territories, and that means playing with new ideas and new concepts.
Working with the band to create the slot is an example of this; we ensure that we capture the personality and the essence of their music and fuse it with the Play’n GO spirit you get with every release. To do that successfully, that’s when you know you’ve created something special.”
