Rival Gaming and iSoftBet Release New Games for Summer
The iGaming industry in on fire. In recent months, many of the iGaming industry's major players have been very active, signing content deals, making acquisitions and releasing new online casino games. In line with the latter, both Rival Gaming and iSoftBet have just announced the release of new video slots.
For Rival Gaming, it's to the sky with Thunderbird. This game is based on the legendary bird that became a symbol of strength and power for the Aborigines. The game comes with an exciting 5-reel, 50 pay-line game format that includes low-paying symbols such as a drum, a hat and pine tree cones. The mighty Thunderbird serves as the game's wild symbol. In the base game, it substitutes for all of the other symbols except for the Fish scatter. If the player lands three or more scatters, they earn free spins with expanding Thunderbird wild symbols. If the player subsequently lands three or more Super Spirit Fish during free spins, they are awarded an expanding wild locked on reel 1 for the duration of their free spin round.
Not to be outdone, iSoftBet struck gold with its new Platoon Wild slot. Through a signed agreement with MGM Interactive Inc., a division of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc., the company gain access to an exciting brand based on the 1980s Academy Award-winning film that captured the brutal reality of the Vietnam War of the 1960s.
This 5-reel, 30 pay-line video slot uses intense video and audio sequences to rivet players to their seats. The game's low-paying icons are represented by bullets and key characters from the film. A "wild" shield serves as the game's wild symbol. It is used to substitute for any of the other symbols with the exception of the Platoon logo jackpot symbol and the silver "free spins" logo, which acts as the game's scatter symbol. If the player lands three or more scatters, they receive 8 free spins with a 2X multiplier. The real money rolls in when the player lands 5—9 jackpot symbols anywhere on the reels. The result is a multiplier of up to 50,000X the bet.
On behalf of iSoftBet, Nir Elbaz, Managing Director stated: “After a fantastic response to Platoon, it was an easy decision to come up with Platoon Wild. This game has a lot to offer; its theme captures the Platoon brand and comes with many opportunities to win big.”
