Microgaming Announces Slots Release Line-up for May 2014

We’d imagine that if you’re fans of variety and new games then you’re already a big fan of Microgaming, and they’re not the type of company to let anyone down with their cracking slot releases which keep on coming thick and fast. With last month’s releases already fresh in the mind, the company has announced two more brand new games that will be landing at their top casinos in the coming weeks, making this our regular monthly announcement of new slots!

The first new release proves once again that when a major event is on the horizon, Microgaming is on hand with a slot to capture the magic. Valentine’s Day, Christmas and more have already had the treatment and now it’s the turn of the World Cup with the release of Football Star. The game comes complete with the 243 ways to win that you’ll be used to by now, together with cutting edge graphics and sounds that will be sure to make it the perfect accompaniment to the world’s biggest sporting event. It’s not short of a few great features either, with the most prominent being 25 free spins, complete with a potential ten times multiplier.

That’s certainly not all either, as Football Star also packs in Rolling Reels and stacked wilds, which can be found during both regular play and the bonus game. Another highlight is the Striking Wild which can happen at any time and will see an entire reel turning into wild cards before any prizes are paid.

Football Star is joined in May’s release list by Cool Wolf, which as far as we’re concerned was designed as a slots throwback to Happy Days! Cheerleaders, a pink Cadillac and more set the scene and will have you heading down to the diner for a milkshake at any moment – possibly. Rolling Reels are the order of the day once again, alongside the 243 ways betting pattern. You’ll also be able to scoop free spins and regular wild cards, but one thing that we simply have to mention is the standalone jackpot which weighs in at a stunning $105,000.

The release of Football Star is clearly a priority for the company as in an unprecedented step, they are offering a promotion of their own to launch alongside it, as Mike Hebden, Microgaming’s Head of Casino, explains: “We know it’s important to offer timely and relevant games to our operators’ players and that’s why we’re releasing Football Star in May. This game adds to our collection of football-themed games such as Shoot! and Soccer Safari, which we know will be popular over the next few months. To celebrate the release of Football Star to our operators, we’re launching a brilliant promotion whereby operators on our network can give their players the opportunity to win a real life Football Star experience, in Rio, in July! For us, it’s not just about delivering a game; it’s about delivering the ultimate experience.”

That promotion will definitely grab the attention of football fans and we’ll have all of the details as soon as they become available. One of the best things about it is that whether you’re a mobile or desktop player, you can definitely get involved in the action. Last month’s High Society represented the first cross-platform release from Microgaming, where the title landed on both online and mobile casinos at the same time – and Football Star is the second!

Both games will be hitting your screens at top Microgaming casinos likes All Slots and Platinum Play on the 8th of May. If you want a head start on the crowd, then be sure to check out everything that they have to offer in our full reviews, right here at Mr Gamez!
