After their Wednesday (Dec. 6) release of the action-packed Highlander online slot, Microgaming has now announced the release of a game designed for the holidays and one to provide easy spinning fun all year long.
Holly Jolly Penguins offers a Christmas theme with 45 compulsory pay lines over 5 reels. The game has a gleeful soundtrack and lively graphics featuring penguins with cute-appeal, snow globes, ringing bells, and big win potential.
Expanding Wilds, Free Spins
There are nine different cold weather antarctic penguin characters on the reels and special stacked wilds on all five reels. Lorenzo and Quincy are the wild ones and they are depicted in snow globes. Big stacks of wilds can mean big wins with these little guys.
Other penguins are seen sledding, and these serve as scatter symbols. Land three or more of them will award scatter pays and trigger free spins. They can retrigger the feature during free games to award up to 80 free spins. The game went live quietly on December 6 with most of the online slots world paying attention to the highly anticipated Highlander release. You can find Holly Jolly Penguins at stand-alone Microgaming casinos like Roxy Palace or on the wider Quickfire network at casinos such as GUTS.
Wacky Panda - Three-reel Fun
For some simple 3 reel spinning fun, they also released Wacky Panda, a fun, fruit-filled slot with a dynamic paytable in view at all times. Changing bet size changes the payout amount illustrated for all of the lower paying fruit symbols as well as the five top-tier panda icons. Players simply click 1, 2, or 3 coins to change the top award from 1,111 coins to 2,222, or 3,333 for landing three pandas with watermelon hats on the single pay line.
Microgaming Games Publisher, David Reynolds said: "Holly Jolly Penguins is perfect for the festive season and features a cast of penguins ready to spread the cheer with scatter pays and retriggerable free spins. Meanwhile, Wacky Panda is fun, fast-paced and has a flexible bet selection that adds a modern twist to the classic three-reel setup."
