Microgaming Releases Two Bingo Side Games for April 2010

Microgaming, through a media advisory released from its HQ at Isle of Man on March 30, has announced the release of two new Bingo Side online slot Games. Microgaming usually launches new Bingo Side games every month.

The first one is Mega Moolah Isis, which is a progressive jackpot slot game connected to the Mega Moolah network. It is built on a popular ancient Egyptian theme. The game symbols, taken from Egyptian mythology, include Isis, the mother Goddess, as the wild symbol, Hawk, as the scatter symbol, Ankh, Vase, Orb, Brooch and Lotus. This five reels and 20 pay lines game has all the regular features of contemporary online slot games, including the Free Spin Bonus feature. Mega Moolah Isis also has the much popular Microgaming Gamble feature, wherein players could stake their payouts, except progressive jackpot winnings, to try to double or to quadruple their money. The best feature in the game however is the randomly triggered bonus round that leads to spinning the wheel. This assures the players one of the four progressive jackpots the game offers.

The other Bingo Side Game launched by Mircrogaming is Fruit Smoothies. This three reel, one payline, and one coin slot game is structured in the classic mold. The game symbols obviously are various fruits. The game got a top feature screen that is activated when a win is triggered. A number of win spins can be played out here, wherein the number of win spins is determined by the symbol combinations won by the player in the regular game. Further, if three Extra Spin symbols are displayed on one of the five win lines, more win spins, up to four, are added to the total number of win spins left.

The Head of Bingo at Microgaming, Neill Whyte, on the release of the new side games explained that there is a growing segment of bingo players who prefer the side games along with the main bingo action, and hence these games from Microgaming.

It is also noteworthy that Microgaming, unlike the previous months, did not release a preview of online casino games to be launched early in the next month. Hopefully this does not mean a delay in the launch of the new online casino games from Microgaming.
