Microgaming has announced the release of a brand new Chinese-inspired video slot.
The leading software provider, which is known for games such as Game Of Thrones and Thunderstruck II, announced the news this week, revealing that it had teamed up with one of its many independent studios.
Fortune Factory Studios, the firm behind the popular slot Village People Macho Moves, developed the game for Microgaming and based it on ancient Chinese myth Longmu, a Chinese woman described as a goddess for raising five dragons.
The brand new slot is based on the myth and combines it with high volatility slot gameplay. The game uses a 5×3 layout with 10 paylines and is packed with numerous bonus features.
Firstly, Longmu’s five dragons take on the form of special symbols which affect gameplay. The red dragon acts as a Wild symbol that appears on the second and fourth reels and triggers a re-spin. When this happens, the reel with the Red Dragon Wild remains locked while the other reels spin to potentially grant you additional wins.
Landing additional Red Dragon Wilds will re-trigger the re-spin. When this happens, three other dragons are added to the reels to multiply your wins by between x1 and x3.
Players also have a chance to win one of two jackpots. Every time a user lands a Red Dragon Wild, players will collect coins which can trigger one of the two jackpots; Grand or Major.
Meanwhile, Long Mu Fortunes also has a Free Spins feature which is triggered by landing three or more Scatter symbols, represented by Longmu. Players will receive 10 free spins with a x2 multiplier and the re-spin feature is also available during the Free Spins bonus.
James Buchanan, the Director of Global Operations at Microgaming, said in a statement: “Fortune Factory Studios has delivered an enchanting slot exclusive to Microgaming, complete with lavish visuals and a mystical soundtrack.
“Long Mu Fortunes is a colourful, high-volatility slot packed with exciting features. The addition of the Jackpot Feature and the Nudging Multiplier Wild stacks create an extremely satisfying gameplay experience.”
Fortune Factory Studios’ Head of Game Production Phelan Sykes added: “Long Mu Fortunes brings a classic Chinese myth to life, interpreting the legend into exciting and highly volatile gameplay.
“Boasting classically stunning graphics, Long Mu Fortunes is dripping with opulence and riches. We can’t wait for players to experience the power and majesty of Long Mu’s dragons and immerse themselves in the world of Long Mu Fortunes.”
Microgaming and Fortune Factory Studios’ Long Mu Fortunes slot is available now at all Microgaming operators.
