A Tale Of Two Microgaming Slots

October 9, 2018

Two Microgaming online slots are in the news. One of them was released recently and the other is more than a decade old. Bolt are live at online casinos like Golden Reef, Platinum Play and 32Red.

Wicked Tales: Dark Red is the new slot that had been developed by Triple Edge Studios exclusively for Microgaming. It is based on Red Riding Hood, but the little girl, now called Dark Red, has grown up and can take care of herself. Her battle is now with a werewolf, who sometimes appears as a man and sometimes as a beast. The other symbols on the reels include locket, red candles, gold coins and the usual playing card icons. The game logo is the wild symbol. The logo and Dark Red award the highest line payouts. The video slot includes the Wandering Reels feature. A set of three consecutive reels spin together and can randomly stop in any of the three possible positions. These reels have four rows and the other two reels have three rows. The Wandering Reels contain jumbo blocks that are 3x4 in size and can deliver big payouts. The full moon symbol triggers the Wolf’s Wheel Bonus. You spin the wheel for cash prizes, payout multipliers or bonus features. The Forest of Fortunes is a bonus game on the second screen. You pick a number of leather pouches to earn cash prizes. Landing a high paying symbol during the wheel bonus activates 9 free spins.

Late last month the Mega Progressive of Microgaming’s Mega Moolah jackpot hit for a massive €18,915,872.81. This is the biggest hit ever on any progressive jackpot at any online casino. The Microgaming press release informed that the winner took about 50 spins at 75 cents to get this windfall. This means that an investment of less than €40 has yielded over €18 million. The win came from an Android mobile device. The winner was playing at Grand Mondial online casino. Grand Mondial is a brand of the Casino Rewards group, and a sister online casino of Golden Reef. Emma Hall Promotions Manager at Casino Rewards said that the group has seen five huge Mega Moolah winners in the past 12 months and this sixth winner has absolutely smashed all records. David Reynolds Games Publisher at Microgaming pointed out that the winner will receive the prize as a lump sum and not in annuities. Mega Moolah Progressive has already risen to €3 million since the hit and is rising fast.
