There’s no stopping Williams Interactive at the moment and they’re seemingly always in the news, with the conversion of Jackpot Party to Slots Magic and the addition of their games to the SkillOnNet platform being two of the most notable recent stories. However, with all of their progress in the online market, it can be easy to forget that they are also one of the most highly respected companies in the land based gaming sector too and we always like to keep our readers up to date on exactly what they can expect from land based casino gaming when something notable happens. With that in mind, we looked on with interest as the company this week unveiled their release schedule for the early part of 2014, and the good news is that there are some truly unique slot experiences on the horizon, alongside updates of some of their most established classics.
Here’s a quick overview of exactly what land based WMS fans have to look forward to over the coming months:
The Zeus series is arguably Williams Interactive signature series of slots, comparable to IGT’s Storm range including Siberian Storm and Sumatran Storm, or Aristocrat’s Queen of the Nile. The latest release in the range will be hitting gaming floors early this year in the form of Great Zeus. The game will stick to the conventional five reel format with a free spins bonus round, although one thing to look out for is the unique Bonus Guarantee. If you’re playing the maximum number of lines, which we’d always recommend doing, then you’re guaranteed to win at least ten times your total bet at the end of the bonus round – meaning no more depressing free spins where you end up with very little! Another unique feature of Great Zeus is the Wager Saver, where players can place their remaining bankroll on a spin with a guarantee that they’ll receive enough for one more spin, win or lose. If you want to see what the theme is all about, then you can check out the original version of Zeus right here at Mr Gamez, with no deposit required.
Lady Godiva is perhaps the most famous thing to ever come out of Coventry – either as a person or a legend – and she is now to be immortalised on the reels. The slot will include another free spins round, where players are set to scoop an impressive fifty spins and can also make use of extra wilds that appear on the second, third and fifth reels. The slot will also pack in the very same Bonus Guarantee and Wager Saver options introduced on Great Zeus.
When you think of Marvel slots, you think of Playtech – or maybe Cryptologic if you’re an industry veteran. The latest online Spider-Man slot from Playtech was launched only last year, but, like the movies, there always seems to be one in production. WMS has the land based licence and they are really pushing the boundaries with it thanks to the Sensory Immersion 2.0 Motion Chair System. While we can’t see it coming to online casinos any time soon, due to the chair and the licence, it will blur the lines between slots and arcade games as your Spidey Senses tingle. There are six associated features, together with a potential eight sets of reels, plus thirty free spins in the main bonus round. The game has also taken a leaf out of Microgaming’s The Dark Knight’s book by throwing in a bonus battle round between Spidey and the Green Goblin. You can check out some great superhero slots online in the Action Heroes section here at Mr Gamez.
Monopoly: Prime Real Estate
In another case of different companies having the same licence, WMS will be releasing their latest Monopoly game. You may well have already enjoyed the likes of Monopoly – Here and Now and Monopoly Multiplier in our IGT section, but this one is firmly focused on land based gamers with use of the classic board and interactive bonuses. Customary free spins are included and players can even scoop a multiplier on every single winning spin if their luck is in.
These new releases are all marked as coming soon, but if you can’t wait to sink your teeth into what Williams Interactive has to offer then you can find an extensive range of their top titles here on the site.
