Online gaming supplier Microgaming has launched its “hair-raising” road-map for its October slot releases, ready for the Halloween season. 

First up is Snowborn Games, who are taking players back to medieval times in a fantastical adventure with King Arthur and the knights of the round table with Legend of the Sword (October 5). 

This Arthurian slot offers 3,125 ways to win and includes a magical Excalibur scatter symbol and Camelot free spins feature, joining players together with the famed knights on a quest to unleash the might of the Excalibur Win. 

Next in the pipelines, players will journey down to the ocean depths on October 7 in Atlantis: The Forgotten Kingdom, developed by Half Pixel Studios exclusively for Microgaming. 

This underwater fantasy themed slot includes 243 ways to win with a Wild Mermaid feature that may trigger a wild win multiplier on any reels. Players triggering free spins can choose from a selection of free spin options with varying volatilities and Wild Win multipliers to choose from.

Coming up next on October 14 is Rabcat’s latest mythical slot, Dragon’s Breath, where players are welcomed to the land of dragons. 

Landing five of a kind on two or more reels ignites the Double or Triple Flame features – setting the reels ablaze, and awarding an additional bonus spin for big wins with cloned reels. 

Following Rabcat, Microgaming, in collaboration with PearFiction Studios, will have players squealing in its five-jackpot slot title, Squealin’ Riches – released on October 12.

Filling the golden piggy bank as they land, each gold coin takes players closer to the piggy bank breaking jackpots of up to x10,000 wager. This slot includes features such as 1,024 ways to win and the LockNWin mechanic where landing six or more bonus coin symbols award three respins. 

Every new bonus or jackpot symbol that lands resets respins back to three and special upgrades including multipliers and increased jackpot wins are up for grabs.

Next up, on October 19, players will head to the ring for WWE Legends: Link&Win, developed by All41 Studios.

Featuring four “fan-favourite” wrestling superstars as high-paying symbols, the branded title includes both the HyperSpins and Link&Win mechanics. 

Landing the 1-2-3 count scatter symbols awards five free spins, in which the three middle reels merge into one big symbol, and three more free spins are awarded each time three scatter symbols land during the feature for big win potential.

Searching for that pot o’ gold, Leprechaun Links (October 21) from Slingshot Studios enchants players with both Power Stacks and the popular Link&Win bonus feature in the base game and during free spins. 

October 26 will see Alchemy Games invite players to play in the city of gods in Chronicles of Olympus X UP.

This Greek mythological slot centres on the Olympians and builds on the X UP feature by raising the stakes with a higher volatility experience. Expanding wilds grace the reels in both the base game and free spins. 

Players collect X UP tokens to increase the free spins starting multiplier with a massive x50 up for the taking. The inclusion of the new Upsizer feature modifier allows players to select an increased free spins multiplier for a cost.

Heating things up at the end of October is 9 Masks of Fire HyperSpins from Gameburger Studios (October 28), adding a respin mechanic to one of Microgaming’s most popular games and offering bet adjustments during play. 

Players can don their masks and pay to respin individual reels in their quest for additional scatters or symbols to complete winning combinations or to enter free spins using HyperSpins, with an enhanced wheel offering an unforgettable free spins experience with multipliers.

Releases from Microgaming’s content partners ready for a trick or treat this month include Rhino Hold and Win (October 7) from Booming Games, Amarna Miller (October 11) from MGA and Twistar (October 12) from Inspired

Golden Rock StudiosClassic Blackjack (October 26), an elegantly crafted multi-hand Blackjack with a smooth and seamless experience, and Bouncy Balls 2 (October 28) from Eyecon will also be springing onto the scene to close out October.
