New Sidewinder Video Slot Released by Microgaming
Microgaming is an online casino games and software developer that recently premiered its new five-reel Sidewinder title from Just for the Win, a Swedish gaming studio.
“A Fresh Twist” Brought by the Sidewinder Feature
Microgaming is an innovator based on the Isle of Man. In a press release put out by it on September 12 the company took the opportunity to explain that Sidewinder is “an engaging new casino game exclusive featuring a fresh twist”. The addition of horizontal wild reels means that a player’s winning potential rises from a base of 243 all the way up to a maximum of 1,126.
The press release went on to explain that Sidewinder also boasts extra spins and wilds, and that its title feature is triggered when the player collected either of these icons. The press release explained that if a player activates just one horizontal reel their win potential will increase to 576 and the activation of both will see this figure rise to 1,125 to take players closer to huge rewards.
Lots of Extra Spins
If the player collects a trio of Sidewinder symbols then they will be rewarded with six spins. The collection of four symbols will reward the player with an additional ten spins. The Sidewinder feature will remain active in these instances and each spin will be made under the 1,125 winning provision.
The press release continues to explain that in the spins round players will receive an extra spin for each Sidewinder symbol that appears on the horizonal reels. If those symbols appear in the same position on both reels then the icons come together and connect to forge expanding wilds. If three of these expanding wilds are connected the supplier explained that players can see “a chance to earn spectacular wins.”
Score ‘wild rewards’
David Reynolds is the games Publisher for Microgaming. In a recent statement he explained that the Sidewinder feature is truly a game changer because it “enhances both wins and ways with horizontal wild reels’ in order bring players increased chances of ‘scoring wild rewards.”
In a format statement Reynolds explained that “it’s an engaging new release developed by Just for the Win with a straightforward mechanic that is guaranteed to level up gameplay for new and experienced players.”
