Microgaming 2017 pokies releases
Microgaming wasted no time in getting things started this year with the release of new pokies in early January. Life of Riches and Huangdi The Yellow Emperor were released at the start of the year with Secret Romance and Fruit Vs Candy Combat set to be released in early 2017 too.
It seems Micorgaming are going with Free Spins and Stacked symbols for their main features this year, but we could be seeing VR pokies later in the year if we’re lucky.
Life of Riches
From time to time software providers like to show us what we could have if we won big. This luxury themed pokie shows everything the rich get to enjoy including fancy cars, private planes, days out at the golf and more across 5 reels and 30 paylines.
You can win up to 2.4 million coins on this title, with Free Spins, multipliers, and Stacked Symbols the star of the show.
Huangdi the Yellow Emperor
Chinese themes have been done before but Microgaming is showing they aren’t dead in 2017, with this 5 reel and 25 payline title based on the cultural hero. The graphics are quite detailed but expect the traditional 10-A symbols here, which we’ve come to expect on all poker machines by Microgaming.
Players can expect to win up to 60,000 coins with Stacked Symbols in both the base game and the Free Spins feature on this 2017 title.
Fruit vs Candy
We’ve all faced this battle at the start of a new year when we’re trying to eat well but all our gifted candy is staring us in the face, which makes this January 2017 title well-timed. Featuring 243 ways to win, the 5 reels are laced with berries or lollies depending on the mode you pick, capturing the inner struggle well.
Fruit vs Candy might be the one to keep an eye on due to the 50 free spins on offer and the similarities to Microgaming’s popular Lost Vegas release due to being able to pick between two modes.
Microgaming’s Feburary release is right on time for the month of love. It features 15 paylines across 5 reels with a romantic mystery theme with roses and masks and rings and envelopes.
Mystery symbols are a nice addition to this title which can appear Stacked and reveal the diamond ring where you will trigger the Free spins feature. This awards players 14 free games with a 2x multiplier.
VR pokies by Microgaming
While Microgaming didn’t quite grasp the 3D concept as well as BetSoft, the company has proven it knows what it’s doing when it comes to VR casino games – the provider demoed roulette VR last year.
There’s no exact details at the time of writing, but reports are suggesting VR pokies could be in the works for Micorgaming this year.
Net Entertainment 2017 releases
NetEnt has really stepped it up when it comes to their animations and graphics and every new release is always different. Their 2017 releases are no exception to their well-deserved reputation either.
Divine Fortune is a January 2017 released and is based in Ancient Greece with mythical creatures, legends, gold and more. Featuring 5 reels and 20 paylines, the title offers new features including Falling Wilds Re-Spins and Wild on Wilds.
The best part is there’s a progressive jackpot and we haven’t seen a new release with a huge jackpot attached in quite some time. If it is a small network title Australians will get to play – but if it’s as big as Mega Fortune, we will unfortunately miss out.
Set for a February release, Joker Pro is a mix between Twin Spin and the classic Jackpot 6000 due to the disco theme and 5 reels and 10 paylines format. There’s Re-Spins with Sticky Wilds and a new Hot Spot Win feature for mega wins.
It’s a take on a classic and well worth a spin if you miss the old fruit machines.
Wild Wild West: The Great Train Heist
This late Feburary release is incredibly exciting for NetEnt as the player is immersed alongside four villains as they rob a train. Featuring comic book style graphics on the 5 reels and 10 paylines, as well as in the background which sets the scene.
There’s Free Spins featuring four different Wild features including standard Wilds, Expanding Wilds, Multiplier Wilds and Spreading Wilds. There’s also a Pick and Click feature where you can score 50x your initial stake.
Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild
Net Entertainment are heading to the jungle for their March 2017 release and the immersive graphics are bound to have you channelling your inner Tarzan call.
While no details have been released at the time of writing, it’s bound to be a title which will blow us away.
BetSoft’s 2017 poker machines
BetSoft is gearing up for another big year of 3D releases and we’re as excited as ever due to the cinematic gaming experience offered on each title.
Following the success of the SlotFather title by BetSoft featuring animated 3D graphics of the Godfather movie, the 3D provider has created a sequel – Slotfather II.
It is being demoed at the ICE Totally Gaming Trade Expo 2017 for attendees to try out alongside late releases from last year, such as Sin City Nights.
