Two new online slots have hit Microgaming online casinos late last week. Both have been developed by independent studios exclusively attached to Microgaming. Astro Legends has been developed by Foxium, a new addition to the Microgaming studios. Crystal Rift is from Rabcat Gaming, the first of the Microgaming independent studios. These new video slots are live at online casinos like All Slots, Gaming Club and Spin Palace and can be played from desktops and mobile devices.
Astro Legends has a unique structure. It is composed of a gem-shaped reel with 22 crystal cells. Payouts are awarded for clusters of five or more like symbols and not the usual paylines. The high paying symbols are gem stones and the low paying symbols are playing card icons. The two lead characters are Lyra and Erion. They are brought to life with high-fidelity 3D models and extensive animations. But they conduct the proceedings from outside the reels. Apart from the regular spin wins, Astro Legends includes some innovative gaming features. The Sonic Respin feature is randomly activated. The winning clusters are held and the other cells spin again. If existing clusters are enlarged or new clusters formed then the process repeats. Multiplier Wild symbols can enhance payouts between 2x and 5x. Collecting stars triggers the Lyra Spirit Pick feature. Lyra shapeshifts into her wolf form. You have to choose from three different lanes and are given three lives to sprint for freedom across several levels. You have to gathering gems along the way collecting bonuses, while avoiding being hit by Erion. If you complete the round successfully, then a 20x multiplier is applied to the total bet.
Crystal Rift has the 5x3 structure with 25 fixed paylines. The symbols are crystals of different shapes and colours. The white crystal is the wild symbol. The Bonus Falls is the dominant feature. After a spin’s wins are paid out, the symbols in winning combinations are replaced by new ones. If winning combinations are formed again then the process repeats. The Bonus Falls continue in the same spin till there are no new wins. At the start of a fall a randomly chosen Wild Grid pattern is displayed on the reels. After three consecutive falls in a spin the Wild Grid feature is triggered. Each symbol in the grid space will become a wild symbol and the bonus falls will continue with these wild symbols held fixed. There are four classes of grids, which are basic, super, mega and insane in ascending order of payout potential.
