Last week we brought you news of three exciting slots that you shouldn’t miss at the Bet365 Vegas site. However, this week there’s been a brand new release of a trio of exciting games that are equally appealing and just as worth taking a closer look at.
In this article, we are going to do precisely that by putting the three new slots under closer scrutiny. What is it that will make these games appeal to Bet365 Vegas customers? (And don’t worry if you are not yet one as you can sign up with the latest Bet365 bonus code by clicking the previous link).
Let’s now take a closer look at the three games in question:
Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild Slot
NetEnt’s latest release sees the usual 5×3 reel set up but this time instead of paylines there are 243-ways to win available (converting to 1024 in the free spins bonus round) on the exciting Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild slot.
Spins start at just 20p per spin but can be increased in value up to £100 and the setting for the slot is a hazy jungle clearing. Lower value symbols on the reels are all designed in a similar style and are the playing card lows from 10 through to ace. The five higher value symbols on the reels are five animals, a cobra, a crocodile, a bear, an elephant and the highest paying one being the tiger.
The high quality of presentation that is a hallmark of a NetEnt slot is once again in evidence here in this beautifully presented game. There are three key bonus features on the slot the first of which is the Symbol Expansion bonus.
On the reels, some symbols on each spin are marked with a butterfly and if you manage to land any of these symbols as part of a winning payline, then the symbol will expand to cover the reel, which gives you the prospect of additional winning paylines. Of course, land several of these on a single spin and you can create many more paylines, increasing the value of your win considerably.
The Butterfly Boost feature is similar but this time the butterflies will fly around the screen and expand symbols to fill the reel on a winning spin, which again increases the number of paylines that you will receive a win from.
The third bonus features is the Free Spins feature which is triggered when you land three or more of the flower scatter symbols on the reels. Land four and you get a 15x your stake bonus and five gives you a 50x your stake bonus cash prize. Once the trigger has been featured you will now have 1024 ways to win on each of your free spins.
The number of free spins you have depends on the game you select. There are five available, one for each of the animal symbols on the reels, with the lower paying symbols (Cobra, Crocodile and Bear) offering more free spins (20, 16 and 12 respetively) while the higher paying elephant and tiger symbols offer 8 and 4 free spins but potentially higher wins.
That’s because during the free spins round, whatever animal you select will be the only one on the reels out of the higher value symbols. Thus increasing your chances of a sizeable win using this bonus especially when you consider the Symbol Expansion bonus is still in play during the bonus round.
With up to 7678 times your stake available to be won on the highest value free spins round, this is one slot that will have you roaring with delight.
Hong Kong Tower Slot
I admit that I really didn’t know what to expect when I first read the title of this 5-reel 99 payline slot from Elk Studios. In the end what I discovered was that this was a slot which took the neon-lit skyline of Hong Kong at night, added a very large tower and turned it into the world’s biggest light, laser and sound show, something akin to what you would see at a Jean Michel Jarre concert.
Spins begin at just 20p but you can increase the value of your wager up to a maximum of £100. The backdrop for the reels is, unsurprisingly, this huge Hong Kong Tower and the reels are set against the face of the tower.
What is immediately apparent is that the Hong Kong Tower slot looks quite different to most other games. There’s no buttons on the bottom of the console, the spin symbol is to the right and this does make the slot appear bigger and brighter when played in full screen mode.
There are five lower value symbols on the reels, each of which offers payouts of between 40 and 80 coins. These are the five neon coloured symbols red, yellow, blue, green and white in colour. The higher value symbols are the tree, a pink flower, a diamond and finally the golden 7 symbol offers the highest payout of 1,500 coins.
There are a couple of other symbols of note on the reels, the first of these being the Hong Kong Tower symbol, which is the game Mystery symbol. When landed this symbol will start to spin and will then become one of the higher or lower value symbols in the game, potentially triggering a win when previously there wasn’t, or increasing the size of a current win.
The other symbol that the Hong Kong Tower symbol can turn into is the Ying and Yang Bonus symbol and when it does it will trigger the bonus game. You can also trigger the bonus game by landing three, four or five of the Bonus symbols across the reels on a spin. Land four or five scatters and you receive one or two additional lives for the bonus and land the bonus game from a Hong Kong Tower spin and you automatically receive two extra lives.
The bonus game you play is the Wheels of the Sky bonus and your aim is to spin the wheels and move through them by landing on the section with the arrow. The more you can move up the three wheels, the greater the potential prizes on offer. You lose a life each time you land on an empty section and when you have lost all your lives and land on another empty section the bonus ends.
Hong Kong Tower is a beautifully realised and innovative slot that packs some excellent features into it. There’s even different betting strategies to pick from if you want to play a different way to how you would normally wager. It looks and sounds fantastic and is well worth having a few spins on at the very least to see if it appeals to you.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel Slot
Following on from the success of their Little Red Riding Hood game in the Fairytale Legends series, NetEnt have released the newest addition to the franchise and it is based on the famous Brothers Grimm tale of Hansel and Gretel.
Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel will be immediately familiar to anybody who played the Red Riding Hood game as there are many similarities with how the game looks, plays and works, with the parallax scrolling background now seeing Hansel and his sister Gretel walking through the forest, having been dumped there on the orders of their wicked stepmother.
This is a 5×3 reel slot which has a total of 10 paylines in play although you can win both ways across the reels with these paylines (five from left to right, five from left to right). You can wager from as little as 10p per spin up to a maximum bet of £200 and you can increase the value of a spin by increasing the Level, a familiar button to those who have played a NetEnt slot before.
There are a number of symbols on the reels to take note of. There are four sweeties which are the lower value symbols offering wins from 5 coins up to 40 coins. The higher value symbols on the reels are Hansel and Gretel themselves, while the Fairytale Legends logo is the highest paying of the standard symbols on the reels offering wins of up to 400 coins.
The Wild symbol is stacked on the second and fourth reels in the base game and when landed you will also receive a free respin of the other reels. Land another Stacked Wild and you will retrigger another respin.
During the base game there are also three bonus features you can randomly trigger. The Fairy Wonder Spin feature which will see between 5 and 9 Fairytale Legends logos placed on the reels. The Fairy Surprise feature can trigger on any non-winning spin which will select one symbol on the reel at random and turn other symbols into that one until you hit a winning combination. Finally, there is the Fairy Wild Spin bonus which can see two full stacks of Wilds appear on the first, second, fourth and fifth reels during a spin, which also triggers the respin feature.
That’s not the only bonuses available in the game though as three of the treasure chest scatter symbols will activate one of the three main bonuses. The coin win option rewards you with a win of 15x your total stake, Free Spins, gives you 10 free spins with the chance to earn more free spins if you can land additional scatter symbols during the bonus. The Stacked Wilds bonus also applies during free spins too.
The third and final bonus is the Candy House Bonus which sees you pick three items from 15 available. This will give you three multipliers which are not immediately revealed but where you are shown the average of your three picks. You can then take the average shown as your prize multiplier, or select one of the items to have as your multiplier instead.
With wins of up to 400x your stake possible, Fairytale Legends: Hansel and Gretel is a fantastic addition to the series and a superb slot in its own right. You can play this slot, plus the other two we’ve outlined above at Bet365 Vegas right now.
