Chinese New Year and an all-time great movie are the subjects of this week’s biggest new slot releases – Lucky New Year and The Wizard of Oz Emerald City.
Lucky New Year – Pragmatic Play
The celebrations for Chinese New Year get under way in earnest on Friday but you can make an early start courtesy of Lucky New Year. Created by Pragmatic Play, it’s a 5 reel, 25 payline slot that combines classical design with a pair of potentially explosive features.
The first of them is the Free Spins feature – once triggered, you’ll receive 5 free spins. A rather measly allocation you might think. During those free spins, you’ll see colossal 3×3 symbols dominating the middle 3 reels which can lead to some potentially massive combinations. You can also retrigger the feature infinitely!
The second extra is the Money Respin feature with a difference – look out for the lantern symbols which come with a monetary value attached. Landing 6 of these triggers the streak. The symbols are held and you’ll get 3 respins with only blanks or money symbols.
If a money symbol lands, it joins the cluster and respins resets to 3. Once all the respins are done, the money values are combined and that’s the prize you’ll win. Fill the screen with money symbols and you’ll pocket the grand jackpot too of 1,000 times your stake. It’s not the flashiest looking game you’ll see but the potential from the features make Lucky New Year well worth considering.
The Wizard of Oz Emerald City – WMS
The second new arrival, The Wizard of Oz Emerald City is based on the 1939 movie starring Judy Garland. Created by WMS, this Wizard of Oz instalment is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win game that comes with retro visuals, jackpots worth 10,000 coins and plenty of extras.
Look out for up to 5 bubbles which can float onto the reels on any base game spin. The symbol the bubble lands on expands upwards 1 or 2 spaces and a new payout is made.
There’s also a Wheel Bonus feature that awards cash prizes or a free spins round complete with expanding bubbles or a 6-level pick me round where bigger prizes are awarded the closer to Emerald City you get.
We’ve sometimes been a little disappointed with slots from WMS. Their brick and mortar titles haven’t always made a seamless transition to the online world. The Wizard of Oz Emerald City is better than most of their previous efforts though. The visuals are very impressive and there’s a decent range of extras. Whether you’re a fan of the film or not, The Wizard of Oz Emerald City offers plenty to enjoy.
