In the not too distant past (the day before yesterday), I brought you NetEnt vs. Microgaming: The Battle for June which set the stage for a two-way battle between software providers for gaming supremecy. Oh how wrong I was. It seems the gaming gods are well and truly looking down on us because we've received the news that NextGen has this week launched 6 new games at two of our favourite casinos: Sapphire Rooms and Chomp Casino.

At a Glance: Six New Releases
First off the tree in this glorious gaming windfall is Miss Midas, which features Miss Midas herself and as you might have guessed everything she touches turns to gold — or more accurately — wilds.
Miss Midas is a 5 reel, 25 pay-line slot with an incredible, unique super bet function, which allows players to change the game to make it more unpredictable or offering bigger wins when the player places a higher bet.
There is also a free spins bonus round that combines with the Midas Golden Touch Feature. The Midas Golden Touch feature sees Miss Midas land on the middle reel, turning all adjacent symbols to wilds and vastly increasing your chances of a win. Definitely one for those of you obsessed with Game of Thrones right now!
1 Can 2 Can
This next game features a play on words concerning Toucans… They're quite the extroverts over at NextGen it seems. A 5 reel, 25 pay-line slot, 1 Can 2 Can is an eye-catcher from the outset with its vibrant colours and tropical rain-forest theme, which makes it an obvious choice when the weather isn't going your way.
The toucans are very much in control of the reels; sitting on either side they can add wilds and scatters across the reels to ensure that players earn as many big wins as possible, so don't anger them.
Scatters appear across the reels and hitting three or more of these on one spin will trigger the free spins bonus round — 10 free spins are awarded when this occurs and its possible to earn up to a 50x multiplier on wins, depending on the number of scatters which triggered the bonus.
Jackpot Jester 50K
A quick first glance at Jackpot Jester looks like two sets of reels; one on top of the other with five paylines on each of the reels. The symbols feature your typical ‘fruity' look with cherries, lemons, plums, melons and so on making an appearance. The Jackpot Jester symbol is wild and gives you a chance of winning 50,000 coins — I like that.
Extra Cash is pretty huge: 5 reels, 50 pay-lines, played over four rows. This one is definitely a winner for die-hard slots fans. Our story features a 1930's paperboy on a mission to get the latest news edition out to the kiosks of the big city.
A uniquely animated 3D slot, the city-themed backdrop gives a great sense of fun and authenticity to the game. Your paperboy buddy cheers you along from beside the reels each time you win. Cute.
Some great features of the game including a free-spins bonus, a re-spin function which activates if you hit two or more scatters (the reels containing the scatters stay put and the others re-spin for a chance of extra wins/bonuses). Just the one bonus round, but there are opportunities aplenty in this excellent NextGen slot.
Foxin' Wins Again
The original Foxin' Wins slot was one of NextGen's breakout games and featured on a host of top online casinos, entrenching its status as gaming royalty, so it seems only natural that NextGen would produce a sequel to that winning formula.
Foxin' Wins Again is a 50 payline, 5-reel slot featuring beautiful views over a horizon and little fox cubs jumping out to give you extra wilds on the reels.
The Superbet option means you can choose to pay extra coins per spin for the chance to get fox cups appearing on more reels. Without the Superbet option engaged the fox cubs only seem to hang around reel 3.
Gorilla Go Wild
NextGen is inviting you to ‘become a Gorillionaire' with its latest slot release for June 3rd. Fans will meet Gary the Gorilla, protagonist extraordinaire, who holds all the cards (bananas).
Gorilla Go Wild offers dedicated players of this 25 line, 5 reel slot the opportunity to be rewarded with all kinds of jungle fun with sticky wilds, banana showers and various un-lockable features. I personally love this release for the funky jungle beats and Gary's rather generous personality. Definitely one to watch out for!
Sapphire Rooms and Chomp Casino
- Sapphire Rooms is every bit as luxurious as it sounds. Featuring numerous exclusive games, the very best of customer service and much more its little wonder that it ranks so highly in our estimations.
- Chomp is a bite-sized, beautifully presented casino which also offers numerous unique games, bonuses and one-off features. A perfect mobile device casino.
