With just over two weeks left in February, we are already getting excited for Microgaming’s two brand new pokies and the promo videos have just been released.
One transports us to the Asian Jungle, while the other takes us down by the sea to enjoy a summer afternoon and both will be available at our recommended Microgaming online casinos in March, including Royal Vegas Casino.
Wild Orient is a 5 reel and 243 Ways to win pokie set in the Asian jungle. Players are treated to bamboo covered reels and beautiful symbols featuring elephants, pandas and tigers.
While the tranquil soundtrack and theme are incredibly different to the releases we’ve seen this month, the gameplay isn’t.
The same Re-Spin feature where players pay extra to spin a reel of their choice in order to complete a winning payline or create a bigger win, as seen in Dragon Dance and Bikini Party (February releases), is included in the base game. Additionally, the 15 free spins which are available to be re-triggered to up to 30 free spins are included as the main bonus again too.
We can trial out this gameplay already with Bikini Party or Dragon Dance, but the promo video does entice us on the visual side with the stunning graphics of animals found in the Asian Jungle.
While Wild Orient is quite similar to Microgaming’s February releases, SunTide is not.
The pokie is set down by the ocean and features just nine paylines across 5 reels. The graphics are quite simple with the old fruit symbols making it a good option for the classic pokies player.
While the graphics lack some depth, there is an Expanding Wild which will keep you interested, expanding on the middle reel to complete big wins.
Additionally, there are up to 15 free spins available with another 15 available to re-trigger during the feature, while the Expanding Wild is still in play here too.
