New Video Slots: Temple of Luxor & Bullseye
The first week of December saw a bundle of new online slots, Temple of Luxor & Bullseye, released by two of the leading software developers: Genesis Gaming and Microgaming.
Microgaming’s latest online slot is based on Bullseye, a TV game hosted by Jim Bowen. The classic game show has three pairs of contestants competing against each other for the win. Bully, the bull, is the dart-playing mascot. The online slot edition is a 5×3 reel game with 243 ways to win. The reels are patterned on the original program’s prizes such as a car, caravan and a speedboat. What makes this online slot very interesting is that players are actually given the chance to throw darts at the board during the bonus round. The prize is 15x the total bet for every dart thrown that finds a mark.
Mike Hebden, the head of Microgaming’s casino games, claims that the online slot truly depicts the very popular TV game show with its retro graphics and sounds, including the classic one-liners voiced by Jim Bowen, star prizes and prize board. Hebden expects this Bullseye online slot to be well-accepted by online gamers what with the dart season coming soon. This online slot is available to all online Microgaming casino operators now.
Temple of Luxor, Genesis Gaming’s latest offering, has two 50-line reel sets combined for an 11-reel game that features a 4 Wild reels bonus. The base game of two 4×5 reels creates a collective 100 lines of action to make this online slot unique. Wins are calculated from right to left on one side and from left to right on the other side. The potential to win big is huge due to the large symbols stacks.
Geoffrey Hansen, managing director of Genesis Gaming, comments that Temple of Luxor with its multiple sets and its huge reel set in the bonus round afford a new gaming experience for gamers. According to the Genesis Gaming’s European sales director, James Watson, Temple of Luxor‘s massive stacks of symbols and high line count make the possibility of large pot and frequent winnings for players. As of this writing Temple of Luxor is only available at Unibet.
