April showers bring May flowers but the fourth month of the year has also gifted us with Microgaming‘s fresh lineup of online games which explores everything from pirate adventure and Egyptian mythology to Arthurian legend and gothic horror while offering jackpots, blazing wheels, Firepots, respins, expanding reels, free spins, Super Spins, and many more exciting features.
The leading content aggregator begins its run-down of the month’s new titles with 8 Golden Skulls of Holly Roger Megaways, the debut release from Buck Stakes Entertainment, the latest addition to the Isle of Man-based gambling software company’s fast-growing network of independent partner studios. The 6-reel Megaways powered video slot is loaded with features, including free spins, multipliers, a Firepot jackpot, and more. Players who join the all-female pirate crew can win up to 1,900 times their stake in this high seas adventure set to launch on April 22.
Neon Valley Studios is next up with its 5-reel, 3-row Queen of Alexandria WowPot slot, based, of course, on the Egyptian queen, Cleopatra. The medium volatility game whisks players away to the ancient world and the famous queen’s court where they’ll find the WowPot progressive jackpot, which features four separate progressive tiers. The top prize seeding within the group is €2 million, and according to the press release, was “nearing €15 million at the time of writing.”In addition to the WowPot game, the game, which is available as a standalone game with fixed-limit jackpots, also includes an expanding wilds respin feature. Check it out from April 13.
