Fans of slots from NextGen Gaming have 3 good reasons to cheer this as week with the developer releasing a hat-trick of new titles – Thunderspin Jackpots, Fat Cat and Funky Chicken.
Thunderspin Jackpots is NextGen Gaming’s attempt at updating the classic fruit machine. It’s a 5 reel, 25 payline game that comes with flashy, neon design and plenty of extras. It can be played from 25p a spin on all devices.
Key to the best action in the base game are multiplier wilds which replace everything apart from the bonus symbol and offer awards of up to 80x per payline. Land a wild in combination with a standard symbol and the payout is doubled. Land 2 and it’s quadrupled. If you’re lucky enough to find 3, the payout gets a 6x boost.
There are a couple of special extras on offer too. A rumble of thunder heralds the Lightning Spin feature – you’ll receive 3 respins with the multiplier wilds spinning in stacked formation. There’s also a Thunder Wheel feature where awards of up to 250 times your stake are on offer. You’ll also have a chance to land 1 of 3 progressive jackpots.
The second new arrival is Fat Cat which stars an assortment of bling-loving pets. As you’d expect, there’s a very flashy feel to the design here with the screen filled by private jets, helicopters and plenty of cash. It has 5 reels and 20 paylines – you can play from just 20p per spin.
The likeliest way to get hold of some of that cash is via 1 of the 2 bonus rounds. In the Bonus feature, choose from the objects until you land a pair. You could find a multiplier which can send payouts soaring by up to 5x. The Free Games feature awards up to 20 free spins with all payouts trebled. There’s nothing very original here but the top end visuals and classic bonuses make Fat Cat well worth a look.
Rounding out the trio of new arrivals is Funky Chicken. These animals are a bit more down to earth than their Fat Cat cousins but can still deliver some cracking action. It has 5 reels and 25 paylines – it’s playable on all devices from 25p a spin.
The game is all about the Free Games feature – landing 3, 4 or 5 scatters awards 4, 20 or 100 times your total stake as well as 15 free spins. Look out for the funky chicken who will appear before the free spins begin to award you a multiplier which boosts all payouts by up to 10x. You can also win an extra 15 free spins. The cartoon design works well with the basic gameplay to create a simple but enjoyable slot.
