Genesis Gaming may not be the biggest name in online slots development but they’re certainly one to watch, especially if their newest release, Ski Jump, is anything to go by. With five reels and ten lines, it is the first attempt at bringing the sport of skiing to the reels since Microgaming’s Ski Bunny classic slot and we must say it does an absolutely cracking job.
It’s not just the use of skiing as a theme that makes the game rather unique. It also happens to be the latest Mr Green exclusive – the game is delivered through the Quickfire platform and can only be played at the green brand. On that note, it’s a good job that Mr Green ranks up there as one of the very best all-round casinos in the world and one that we play at regularly ourselves.
While the use of ten win lines suggests something of a simple game, getting into the action soon demonstrates that Ski Jump is anything but basic. The interactivity on the game begins with players choosing the country that they wish to represent and this isn’t just an empty gesture as your selection will have an immediate impact on the symbols and animations that are used within the game. The base action incorporates random wilds, wild multipliers and, for the first time on a Genesis slot, scatter respins.
The real thrills on the game are to be found within the bonus feature which introduces one of the most genuinely skill based bonuses around. Practice makes perfect as players control just how accurately their ski jumper takes off and lands, with better results leading to bigger prizes. We can say that this really is something brand new for players and the feature alone is a good enough reason in its own right to create an account at Mr Green.
Commenting on the new launch, Andy Braithwaite, Mr Green’s Head of Casino, said: “We’re really happy with the slot game that Genesis created with us. The project ran really smoothly and we enjoyed working together immensely. The end product is proving popular with our players and we’re looking forward to future collaborations.”
Geoff Hansen, Managing Director at Genesis, also commented on the new game, saying: “This game has been a labour of love for us. It combines our two strengths: clever math modelling to maximise the player experience and rich, immersive artwork. The result is a highly interactive and engaging game that truly captures the excitement of the sport. We have really enjoyed working with someone of the calibre of Mr Green and we hope that players enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed building it.”
Genesis certainly joins illustrious company by creating an exclusive slot for Mr Green as the previous game to be released solely at the casino was the imaginatively named Marvellous Mr Green slot, developed by none other than Net Entertainment. As one of the few casinos to offer unique games that can’t be played anywhere else, the brand goes up even further in our estimations.
