Microgaming has again lived up to its tradition of announcing the new online casino game releases few weeks in advance. No wonder, once the announcement was made, players at all Microgaming online casinos are waiting eagerly for the release date, and all the talk suddenly is about the new games and its features. Come this December 2009, and Microgaming is rolling out three video slots and a table game.
Of the different games being released, the online slot game, Scrooge, appears to be most interesting of the lot. It is based on a miserly character from the Charles Dickens novel “A Christmas Carol”, with a certain Christmas connection. However, the game is not any miserly, as the said online slot offers up to 50,000 in the base game, 100,000 in the free spins bonus round, and 5,000 in the Christmas Dinner bonus round. Not a bad deal at all! The Scrooge symbol is the Wild symbol, while clicking on winning symbols adds either a free spin to the free spin counter, or a day to a calendar that counts the days up to Christmas. That is, when the days counts up to the Christmas day, the free spins bonus round is triggered, with the number of free spins already registered in the free spin counter.
The second one, Buffet Bonanza, is a culinary themed game, with game symbols such as lobsters, roasts, salads, deserts etc. The highlight of this 5 reel and 25 payline online slot game is the Buffet Bonanza bonus round wherein the wild Diner symbol gets stacked. There is a pie fight, wherein the symbol on which the pie lands is converted into Diner symbols. Further, the Buffet Bonanza log activates the free spin round in which all the payments are doubled and wild symbols are added to 2nd and 4th reels during free spins.
The third game on the block is Tribal Treasure. The game offers payouts up to 20,000 in the base game and a treasure trove of up to 100,000 in the free spins, thanks to the fact that the free spins multiply the payout five times over. If the player manages to collect and save 10 Golden Idols, whenever the symbol appears on reel 3, the bonus round will be triggered. Finally, there is this gamble game that is typical of all Microgaming casinos, which gives the players a chance to double or quadruple their investments.
The table game introduced is Vegas 3 Card Rummy that belongs to Microgaming’s Gold Series, which in turn hints at the elite wagering environ that the game offers. The main game has payouts of up to 4 to 1, not to mention the splendor of side bets and jackpots.
