Microgaming slots

Microgaming has a truly huge slots portfolio with everything from old-fashioned three reel machines to stylish looking video slots with a multitude of innovative features. Below, you’ll find just a few examples.

 

Thunderstruck II

thunderstruck

This slot was released back in 2010, but it has really aged with dignity and is still one of Microgaming’s most popular slots. The theme is the old Nordic religion with Thor, Odin and the rest. There are four different free spin modes, each with its own special perk. Thor’s free spin round consists of 25 free spins with Rolling Reels, Odin’s free spin round are just 20 free spins but with the Wild Raven feature activated, Loki can give you 15 free spins with Wild Magic to help, and the Valkyrie rewards you with 10 free spins with a generous 5x win multiplier.

 

Zombie Hoard

Zombie Hoard

This slot, released in 2019, was developed exclusively for Microgaming by Slingshot Studios. It’s a humorous take on the zombie trope, with funny animations and a great soundtrack. As you play, you can squirrel away brain tokens, which eventually trigger the Gripping Free Spins bonus round (you need 30 tokes for this). Another way of getting free spins is to have at least three scatter symbols appear. During free spins, Super Stacked Wilds can appear on all reels and all payline wins are doubled.

 

Avalon II

avalon 2

This slot is a great choice if you want slot adventure with a coherent story line and challenges instead of just spinning reels. On this slot, inspired by the legends about King Arthur and his friends and foes, you can gradually work your way through a series of bonus segments that together form a knightly quest. You task is to find the Holy Grail and take it away from those who wish to use it for bad.

In addition to the detailed bonus segments (triggered by the Holy Grail scatter), this slot comes with two other special features: Merlin and the Lady of the Lake. The wizard Merlin can appear randomly after any spin and surprise you with a gift. The Lady of the Lake is a wild symbol, and on the third reel she is an Expanding Wild..

Microgaming’s live casino

The streaming is high-definition and it is possible to play at several tables simultaneously. The live stream is not just streamed, but also recorded, so it is possible to do a playback afterwards and see the moment again.

Examples of available features are multi-language support, statistical analysis, and being notified when a seat at your desired table becomes available.

In Microgaming’s Playboy Live Casino, the dealers wear (fake) rabbit ears.

Microgaming bingo
