Microgaming’s new slots game, King Tusk Slot, brimming with free spins features, to launch in November 2017.
Microgaming powered online casinos can expect an influx of players come November. That’s when the world’s leading interactive slots developer will release a trio of new slot machine titles. One of them, King Tusk Slot, is sure to be a crowd pleaser, as its multiple features include three distinct ways to play free spins.
King Tusk is expected to launch in the first week of November. It has a graphically rich African safari theme—much like one of the brand’s most famous slots of all time, the millionaire maker, Mega Moolah. But this time, it’s the elephants that rule the terrain, not the lions.
Let’s take a look at what players have to look forward to, based on the official teaser video released last week.
New Slots Game King Tusk
King Tusk is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot machines optimized for game play on all desktop and mobile operating systems, with no need to download any software. It’s packed with vibrant, hi-def graphics and an energetic soundtrack appropriate for the theme.
Elephants make up most of the high paying symbols, including an elephant herd as the wild, a mother and baby elephant locking trunks, and a whole family of them frolicking in the water. Other symbols include the King Tusk logo, ornate pots of gold, and playing card values of A-9.
For the most part, the wild symbols play the traditional role of replacing any other symbol needed to create the highest possible winning combination. However, there’s a special Mystery Wild Feature that can activate at random. When it does, a stampede of elephants will travel north to south over a reel that already contains a wild, turning the entire reel into wild symbols. This increases the odds of hitting one or more wins, but does not come with anything extra, like multipliers.
Three Free Spins Features
The game’s biggest attraction will surely be the free spins. Microgaming has used similar features before, allowing payers to choose which free games mode they want to invoke. It’s been well received thus far, and shouldn’t be any different this time around.
Free spins are triggered when 3+ King Tusk Scatters appear on the reels. Additional free games can be retriggered. Players can choose from the following free spins features.
Gone Wild Feature: This option gives players 10 free spins in which all elephant symbols act as wilds. This increases the odds of landing wild symbols by 200%. Then again, it could decrease the payouts, since the game’s two highest paying symbols are no longer eligible to make standard winning combinations.
Stampede Features: 10 free spins are awarded. This time, the player is guaranteed to land 2 full reels of wilds on every spin. The elephants will stampede down across two random reel positions with each new spin.
The Dance Feature: Again, players receive 10 free spins. With each spin, up to 5 wild elephants will “dance” on the reels. Every wild that appears will remain in place until the free spins are over. By the final spin, this could result in anything from 10 wilds, to potentially a full screen of wilds.
