In the latest episode of Slot Selection, made in collaboration with GamblingTV, James Ross of SlotBeats highlights the top slot titles released this week including games from Relax Gaming, Eyecon, Storm Gaming and Green Jade Games.
First up is Storm Gaming’s latest Megaways release with the 1960s East End gangster themed The Megaways Mob.
The six reel video slot has between two to seven rows and has 117,649 ways to win, and featuring a Free Spins bonus and the Pick Me mode, triggered by landing three bank symbols in view.
Metropolitan Police badges act as the mystery symbol, and transform into the same matching pay symbol for a win. If four or more Scatter symbols are landed, the Free Spins Mode is triggered, and 12 Free Spins are awarded plus four additional spins for every Scatter.
Next up is Eyecon’s Highland Reels, a 5×3, 25 payline slot including a Caber Toss and Hammer Throw feature.
Once unlocked when three or more Scattered Scotsman symbols hit the reels, the Caber Toss awards players one pick for each Scotsman symbol. The Scotsman tosses a caber for each pick, potentially revealing a prize of up to 100x the wager or 10 free games.
The Hammer Throw is triggered when three or more Scattered hammer symbols appear on the grid, and punters must select hammer ragets until a pair is revealed.
Commenting on their Linkedin post, Eyecon said: “Spin your way through the Scottish Highlands in our newest slot game Highland Reels, out today! Packed with our new Caber Toss and Hammer Throw bonus features, this game is braw!”
Thirdly is Green Jade Games’ Book of Babylon, a 5×3 reel slot with 10 paylines, with a huge array of bonus features including a Gamble feature, Wilds, Free Spins and Expanding symbols, enabling players to win up to 5,000x their stake.
Scatters act as the Wild Symbol and will substitute for any other symbols on the reel whenever enough are landed. If three or more are secured, the bonus feature is triggered and 10 Free Spins are awarded.
Bonus features are triggered by landing three or more Scatters, awarding 10 Free Spins, and a random symbol is selected as the Expanding symbol. The Expanding symbol covers the reel when enough symbols from any combination are landed in Free Spins.
Mark Taffler, chief commercial officer at Green Jade Games, said: “Book of Babylon takes players on a real adventure to the heart of the world’s most famous ancient city where they have plenty of chance to discover treasures and big wins of their own thanks to the game’s bonus features.
“Not only does the game look great, the math and mechanics have been designed to provide an engaging and entertaining experience with every spin. In particular, the Free Spins with Expanding symbols ramps up the excitement.
“Green Jade is first and foremost an arcade skill game developer, but we believe Book of Babylon has what it takes to capture player attention and deliver a fun and thrilling experience with every spin.”
