Round Up Of News & Events from the Online Gambling Industry
Added: Jan. 20, 2015
In this section we will be taking a look at some of the latest stories from the online casino industry. Microgaming recently launched a new online slot machine called Gung Pow, plus we also noticed on the official Microgaming YouTube Channel that two new videos were added. These latest videos were previewing two currently unreleased Microgaming slot machines, including Golden Era and Cricket Star.
The new Gung Pow slot has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin, the new Cricket Star slot also has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin and the new Golden Era slot machine has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin. Gung Pow was launched over Microgaming’s Flash, download and Quickfire platforms and we also expect these other two new slots to arrive on these same Microgaming platforms.
On each of these new slots, the Wild Symbol is the Games’ Logo and this will substitute all of the symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter Symbols and three or more of the Scatter Symbols will trigger the main Bonus Feature on each of these new slots. The main Bonus Feature on the Cricket Star slot and on the Gung Pow slot is a Free Spins Bonus and the main Bonus Feature on the new Golden Era slot allows you to choose between 12 Free Spins with Stacked Wild Reels and a Second Screen Picking Bonus.
In other news, a lucky player from Sweden recently netted himself the largest ever progressive jackpot paid out on mobile. He was playing at a mobile casino called LeoVegas Mobile Casino and he was playing on a mobile slot machine from Net Entertainment (NetEnt) called Mega Fortune Touch. This player won an incredible €5.7 Million.
Speaking about this record-breaking win was the Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, Simon Hammon, “It’s a privilege to announce NetEnt’s Mega Fortune has paid out the largest ever jackpot on mobile. This is the second big win on LeoVegas.com and it underlines the huge profit potential of our pooled jackpot portfolio.” We extracted these comments from NetEnt’s official website.
