Wild Scarabs: newest online slot machine from Microgaming
Microgaming, the software firm based in the Isle of Man, has announced its latest online slot, Wild Scarabs, in which players go back in time to ancient Egypt, trying to find hidden treasure and liberate it from its scarab guardians.
The game has five reels, providing 243 different winning opportunities, in addition to a pair of thrilling wild elements that offer players the potential for very large wins. The game starts with a heavily ornamented ancient Egyptian screen environment; the Wild Deal element can be accessed by any player who slots a wild symbol on the third reel in a spin that wins no other prize. The Wild Deal feature adds a quartet of extra wild symbols to the game, meaning that the player is guaranteed a win.
Furthermore, any player achieving three scatters or more will be given an additional ten spins and also the chance to find even more varied winnings with the Stashed Wilds feature: in this element, if three or more wild scarabs are gathered and saved from unsuccessful spins, they can be put back into the game to win extra prizes; this goes on until all the scarabs are back in the game, which can offer gamers a chance to uncover the Pharaoh's hidden treasure.
The new game is available on platforms, including tablets, mobiles, laptops, and desktops. Mobile gamers will enjoy the fact that the game can be played in either portrait or landscape configurations.
David Reynolds, Microgaming's games publisher, commented, “Wild Scarabs is a stunning slot with two exciting wild features. Wild Deal™ gives players a chance to win on a non-winning spin in the base game, while scarabs can be can be collected during free spins as Stashed Wilds™. Delivering rich colors and incredible graphics, the game is really brought to life, transporting players back in time to Ancient Egypt.”
This is the second new release from Microgaming within a month, following on from the novel Poke the Guy slot machine release in May.
