Microgaming aren’t one for small scale releases. Whereas, most slot providers will release a single slot each month, Microgaming steps it up by releasing multiple slots on a single day, every single month. June is no different, with Microgaming dropping 3 slots on June 8th.
Not all of the slots this month are new. You get 2 original slots and one re-release, that is arriving just in time for a large football tournament happening this month, which you might have heard of. Read on and see if any of these new releases sound like your cup of tea.
Microgaming Slot Releases For June 8th
Microgaming has a lot packed into a single day, so let’s get you up to speed about which slots are up your street.
Pretty Kitty – Expanding Symbol Features
This is certainly going to be a slot theme that’s going to split opinion more than any on this list. We wouldn’t want to pass judgement on the slot in such an early stage, but gaudy is one of the first words that comes to mind when we first became aware of Pretty Kitty.
Of course, if you’re a fan of spoiled kitties (that are also pretty) who are swamped in jewels and riches, then we’d have to concede that this would have to be the slot for you. You could consider this as the spiritual successor to Kitty Glitter, which has remained a surprise hit among casino goers.
Cat heavy theme aside, Pretty Kitty looks to be an interesting release from the June
Microgaming slots. In terms of features, Pretty Kitty has all the bells and whistles you’d expect, with a few interesting tweaks. Wild symbols and a free spins bonus round are here as expected, but it’s the symbols themselves that are the star of the show.
Pretty Kitty has both randomly expanding wild symbols and expanding regular symbols. The latter is something we haven’t see that much and with the two symbol types expanding at the same time, that could lead to some really interesting wins.
Pretty Kitty is the only slot on this list releasing on both desktop and mobile from day one, so you can play it on either device when it releases on June 8th.
Shoot! – Re-released In Time For EURO 2016
Shoot isn’t a new slot, having been around since 2012. But with EURO 2016 just around corner and Microgaming having another release bundle this month, it makes sense to relaunch Shoot just in time for the tournament.
Sadly there’s been no grand remastering, so the slot has all the same visuals and features as before. It’s simply a nice nostalgia trip in time for the EUROs.
Having gone back to the slot ourselves though, it’s surprising how well it holds up and even years on, it’s definitely one of Microgaming’s more unique slot games. In terms of bonus rounds, Shoot blows most other Microgaming slots out the water.
The bonus round is split into 4 parts, where you can go through 2 click and pick bonus rounds to unveil multipliers and unlock additional bonus rounds. You can then win the chance to spin for free spins and finally, you then play a free spins round which can grant you up to 33 free spins.
It’s a slot that’s definitely worth going back to if you missed it the first time around and although we feel a relaunch is a bit much given how it’s hardly related to EURO 2016 specifically; it’s still a great game in its own right.
Ninja Magic Slot – 40 Payline Slot
Ninja Magic is possibly the oddest release on this list. Ninja Magic is set during an adventure where 2 ninjas attempt to vanquish giant insects. Even so close to its release date, we still know very little about Ninja Magic, with Microgaming having not even released any demo play of the slot.
As a concept, Ninja Magic certainly has our attention and the other details regarding its gameplay have us intrigued too. Ninja Magic is shedding the 243 ways to win that Microgaming has become famed for and is returning to a traditional bet line system. They are offering 40 bet lines in total, which is quite high in terms of what the industry would usually provide.
Bonus rounds have also been experimented with, with the player able to select their own bonus round, out of a possible 18 choices. Players can spin for bonuses that contain anything from 40 free spins to 8x multipliers.
The major downside is that Ninja Magic will be forgoing a mobile and tablet version for the time being, only releasing on desktop. It’s normal for Microgaming slots to make the transition to mobile eventually, but it’s a shame that Ninja Magic is remaining as a desktop only game, since many other slot providers like NetEnt, release a touch version in tandem from day one.
A Microgaming Packed June
Overall, it looks to be an interesting month from Microgaming. Although it hasn’t succeeded on all fronts, there’s enough variation that there should be something for everyone. With Ninja Magic, you get a new slot with intriguing features. With Pretty Kitty, you get a traditional slot that’s available for mobile. With Shoot, you get a blast from the past just in time for football season.
All of that’s coming June 8th, so be ready for that date. You can find the latest Microgaming slots on day release at Guts Casino.
