Pollen Party is a game that gives players a whopping 720 ways to win with each and every spin. There are five reels, and these are arranged in a honeycomb pattern so that the number of symbols displayed from the left to right reels are 3, 4, 5, 4 and 3, respectively. Symbols include various bees going about their honey-making business, honeycombs and sweet treats such as jellies and bowls full of honey-coated cereal.
There are two different feature symbols in this game, and if you get three or more scatter symbols on the reels you will trigger Free Spins. Three or more bonus symbols will trigger a Babee Bonus feature, which allows you to raid honeycomb for cash prizes. Add in a very useful wild symbol, humorous graphics and an upbeat soundtrack and Pollen Party is a great game that is sure to sweeten your day.
Emperor of the Sea is an Asian-themed five-reel title which allows players to choose whether they want to play 38, 68 or 88 pay lines. It is said that those numbers represent ‘fortune’ in Asian culture, and since the theme of this game includes Asian mythology of the nautical kind (think of dragons rising from the ocean to terrorise ancient sailors) that particular pay line choice is a nice touch.
Symbols include the playing card ranks 9, 10, J, Q, K and A, ancient ships, pots of gold, turtles guarding Chinese Feng Shui coins, a pair of Koi fish forming the Yin Yang symbol and the aforementioned dragon, to name just a few. An emperor hat symbol serves as a scatter, and if you get several of them on the reels you will trigger a Free Spins round with Rolling Reels and Growing Wilds.
The design of this game is very impressive, with the graphics and soundtrack both having an authentic Asian feel that really helps to provide an immersive and enjoyable gaming experience.
The third game of the month from Microgaming is The Heat is On, which boasts five reels and 45 pay lines. This game focuses on a cat burglar, Selina, who is out to get her hands on the gold reserves from the city bank. Officer Jean is on her case, however, and the game therefore includes symbols that are relevant to the hot pursuit, including motorbikes, helicopters and police cars, as well as Selina’s briefcase full of gold bars and the bank she likes to raid.
‘March brings an incredible selection of games, each offering something unique,’ said David Reynolds, who is Games Publisher at Microgaming. ‘Pollen Party is our first game to use a 720 way, variable reel design, and brings two dynamic features for players to enjoy. Emperor of the Sea is another important addition to our Asian-themed games collection and combines both mythical and fortune elements from the popular culture, in an engine that is crafted to extend gameplay. And The Heat is On is a perfectly balanced game which combines a wild feature that provides players with a steady base game experience and a free spins feature that has explosive potential. There’s something for everyone in March’s game add on.’
Pollen Party and Emperor of the Sea can be played now at 32Red Casino and other venues on the Microgaming platform, whilst The Heat is On will be launched on Wednesday 22 March.
