Slot News Weekly
Welcome to the weekly news round-up where we guide you through all the latest happenings in the slot world. With the festive season now long behind us, let's kickstart 2019 with all the latest news in the world of online slots!
Microgaming to develop new Lara Croft Slot
Microgaming has announced that they will mark the 15th anniversary of their partnership with Square Enix by developing a 3rd Tomb Raider-themed slot. The original Tomb Raider slot released back in 2004 was a historic one, as it was the first ever licensed branded slot in the industry. This was then followed up by Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword in 2008, which remains popular to this day due to its multiple bonus features.
Without further details at present, it is believed that the new Lara Croft-inspired title will take its inspiration from the 2018 blockbuster Tomb Raider. More details of this upcoming game will be released at the 2019 ICE gaming conference and we will keep you posted once more information is available. From what we know already about the game and given the success of its two earlier Tomb Raider slots, we are sure Microgaming has another classic on its hands. If you wish to try the original Tomb Raider in this series, you can do so here at Party Casino.

Paddy Power Casino becomes the first to add two new Playtech Slots
Whether you dream of becoming one with nature in the American wilderness, or seeking your fortune in Ancient China, the two new Playtech offerings at Paddy Power Casino will have you covered. Big Bear is a nature themed slot, which runs on a 5 reel, 243 ways to win game engine. Here you will find all your forest favourites, with fish, beavers, wolves and eagles all making an appearance along with the Big Bear himself which is the wild. If you are a fan of nature themed slots, then Big Bear is not one to miss.
The other new Playtech feature, Coin! Coin! Coin!, uses a familiar oriental theme and whilst it does not offer much in the way of free spins or multipliers, what it does deliver is wilds and plenty of them! Whenever a wild coin hits, it expands and in turn makes the whole of that reel wild. Multiple coins = Multiple wilds, with potential prizes to match. Should you be lucky enough to land a wild on all 5 reels then you will scoop the progressive jackpot prize.
If you fancy giving either of these new slots a spin, then head over to Paddy Power Casino where you will find these amongst many more of your slot favourites.
