Australian players will soon be able to experience two brand new online pokies from Microgaming in the real money mode or in the free play mode. These new pokies will include a Jurassic Park online pokie and a Game of Thrones online pokie and they are based on the blockbuster movie and hit HBO TV show of the same names.
Microgaming first discussed these pokies way back in January 2014 and it looks as though they should be arriving in casinos soon, although an exact release date is not available at the time of writing. By the time you are actually reading this article though, both of these new pokies may have already arrived in your favourite Aussie Online Casino.
We know that the Jurassic Park pokie will probably arrive sooner than the Game of Thrones pokie because in June 2014 a new video previewing this pokie was added to Microgaming’s official YouTube channel. It generally doesn’t take long for a pokie to arrive when this happens. The Game of Thrones preview video has also yet to be released.
The new Jurassic Park pokie looks action packed and it has 5 reels and 243 ways to win per spin. Keep an eye out for 5 Wild Dinosaur Features. A different Wild Feature will be available during certain Free Spins Bonus Rounds and some of these unique features include Split Wilds, Wild Reels, Running Wilds (with Nudges & Respins), Mystery Wild Multipliers and Stacked Wilds. The T-Rex Bonus Feature can also add up to 35 Wild Symbols to the reels.
“Jurassic Park is a seminal movie - its stunning visual effects and computer-generated imagery set a new benchmark in the industry,” said Microgaming’s CEO, Roger Raatgever when speaking about this pokie just before it was previewed at this year’s ICE Totally Gaming event in London, England.
He then went on to say, “It's a film that we can draw parallels from in terms of our game creation and our aim to deliver the most visionary and imaginative gaming experiences to the end player. The Jurassic Park brand is legendary, and our game development team is busy creating an all-mighty slot for release later in the year.” This brand new pokie from Microgaming should be available soon.
Unfortunately at the time of writing we don’t know very much about the new Game of Thrones pokie, but as soon as we find out anything new, we will keep you posted right here. “We are incredibly excited to have signed a licensing agreement for Game of Thrones, a highly relevant and extremely popular show,” said Raatgever back in January.
He then finished by saying, “We plan on taking all of the features of the small screen fantasy epic to create a masterpiece of a slot. This will be a fantastic addition to our branded content games portfolio. Our operators and their players have plenty to look forward to this year.” These comments came from the Microgaming website.
