We are pleased to welcome the studio to our content aggregation platform and look forward to working with them on further diversifying our portfolio for Microgaming customers worldwide.”

With a medium-to-high volatility action in a mobile-friendly format, the title also comes with a mystery prize feature and a potential jackpot prize of 4,000x!

Punters can also expect mid-volatility Pachinko, with a generous collection of features, in addition to high variance Fu88 with Wild Balls, Bonus, and Jackpots. While the first one caters to the skillset of recreational punters, the other is aimed at more experienced users.
