Microgaming has partnered up with Golden Rock Studios for a brand new video slot.
The leading software provider announced the news this week, revealing that it had teamed up with Golden Rock Studio to release a brand new video slot entitled ‘Volatile Slot’.
According to Microgaming, Golden Rock Studio is an independent game studio founded by industry experts James Curwen (CEO) and Will Mathieson (CPO) in the United Kingdom. Under the agreement, Golden Rock Studio will develop games exclusively for Microgaming and release their slots via the Microgaming platform. Allowing their games to reach vast amounts of players across multiple casino websites.
The first slot to be released via the agreement is Volatile Slot, a 5×3 video slot with 10 paylines that is themed after a dangerous volcano and is paced with explosive features. Symbols in the game include campfires, drums, as well as the traditional playing card numbers and letters.
Volatile Slots has two Wilds; Volcanic Wilds and Exploding Wilds. Volcanic Wilds substitute for various symbols to help you make more winning combinations. They can also transform into Exploding Wilds which act as multipliers ranging between x2 and x4. Meanwhile, landing more than one Exploding Wild causes the initial multiplier to be multiplied by each Exploding Wild on the reels, potentially earning you up to 64x your bet, which is huge!
When both a Volcanic Wild and Exploding Wild lands simultaneously on the reels, players are credited with multipliers and the land triggers the game’s Free Spins feature. During the Free Spins, more Volcanic Wilds and Exploding Wilds are added to the reels for more wins.
Jean-Luc Ferriere, the Chief Commercial Officer at Microgaming, said in a statement: “With more than 15 new games in the pipeline, Golden Rock Studios are set to broaden our range with fresh and diverse content.
“Volatile Slot is an impressive debut title and is now available across Microgaming’s entire customer base following a two-week period of exclusivity with LeoVegas.”
James Curwen, CEO at Golden Rock Studios, added: “We are proud to team up with Microgaming and look forward to providing them with many more exclusive games in the coming months.
“Our first release, Volatile Slot, delivers an exhilarating, high-volatility gameplay experience and is filled with stimulating game mechanics and vibrant visuals. This slot is by its very nature volatile, and if the volcano erupts, the level of extremity is taken to a whole new level for the player, with the maximum win at a 25,600 times stake!”
News of the new partnership comes just days after Microgaming announced the launch of new slot Jungle Jim And The Lost Sphinx, a video slot developed for Microgaming by Stormcraft Studios, and the launch of Long Mu Fortunes, a Chinese mythology-themed slot by Fortune Factory Studios.
Golden Rock Studios isn’t the only development studio Microgaming has partnered with. Other up-and-coming game providers the firm has partnered with include GameBurger Studios, Triple Edge Studios, Neon Valley Studios, ITV Studios Global, Realistic Games, All41 Studios, Slingshot Studios, and so many more.
