Microgaming releases 5 new slots

Microgaming Software Provider

May 2020 sees one of the world’s leading games developers release no less than five new video slots.

Microgaming’s latest titles all come courtesy of its partner software studios such as Stormcraft, Triple Edge, and All41 Studios.

Two of the newest titles give soccer fans the chance to revel in some much-missed pitch-side action.

Football Star Deluxe is a 5 -reel slot that features Rolling Reels, a free spins bonus, multiplier trails, and two types of super-stacked wilds (Striking Wilds and Growing Wilds). All Win FC is a 5-reel, 10-payline game that gives you the chance to earn extra spins and symbol upgrades in its free spins bonus.

Lucky Riches Hyperspins is set in a casino, and it lets you create wins by spinning its reels individually rather than all at once.

Electric Avenue is an 80s-inspired title which offers 4,096 ways to win, free spins, wild reels, sticky wilds, and win multipliers of up to x55.

Absolootly Mad: Mega Moolah is based on the world-famous progressive jackpot slot and it also shares Microgaming’s jackpot network. The game comes with Rolling Reels, free spins, a multiplier trail, and a Jackpot Bonus Wheel.

Mr Q plans an influencer bingo bonanza

MrQ Bingo Review

Wager-free online bingo site, Mr Q, has always liked to do things differently.

Aside from its exclusive range of games, loyalty rewards, and promotions, the brand is also hosting unique events.

This weekend sees Mr Q holding an influencer bingo bonanza that will see TOWIE’s Amy Childs and Love Island’s Cara De La Hoyde take over two of the site’s bingo rooms for a fun-packed series of games and banter.

The rooms open between 8 PM and 9 PM on Saturday, 9th May and Sunday, 10th May 2020. 90-ball games will run every 5 minutes and the jackpots will be worth at least £20.

If you already have an account at the site and you’ve deposited at least £10, you can pre-buy your tickets for the games for 10p each.

Bingo All Stars goes live on the Dragonfish network

Bingo All Stars Review

As of this week, there’s a new addition to the Dragonfish network, but Bingo All Stars is rather different from most 888 brands.

Head through its virtual doors and you’ll find a line-up of bingo-loving celebrities including Mr Motivator, Linda Lusardi, Rustie Lee, and Christopher Biggins, Russell Grant and Jean Martyn, all of whom are hoping to give you as much entertainment as you can handle.

Naturally, there’s a generous welcome offer in the mix, plus plenty of promotions, slots, and bingo games to choose from. Check out our full review of the site.
