Roxy Palace Casino has just released the list of online casino games that Microgaming will be releasing in the New Year in January 2009. Microgaming is the leading online gaming software provider with good reason. Come the new month and Microgaming will have new games for its online casinos. Not only that but Microgaming provides teasers of the new games in advance so as to raise the expectations.
The Roxy Palace Casino announcement states that four exciting new games will be released in January. Of the four three are predictably online slots. It is the slots games that are driving the online casinos and therefore the focus of online gaming software providers is naturally on slots. The fourth game being released in January is the fourth game in Microgaming's new video poker series of Level Up poker. The game is Joker Poker, which is a popular variant of video poker. It is played with a 53-card deck, the 53rd card being a joker. The joker acts as a wild card and substitutes for any card in order to make a paying poker hand. It also creates the unique hand of five of a kind, which has four cards of the same rank with the fifth card being a joker. The Level Up format of video poker was introduced by Microgaming earlier this year. Four hands can be played one after the other. If the player wins at one level he proceeds to the next in which the payouts are doubled. On the flip side, if he loses at any level he loses everything. But this is no cause for worry because there are special features to help the player.
As of now Roxy Palace Casino has given only the names and screen shots for two of the online slots being released by Microgaming next month. More details will undoubtedly follow in the coming days. These two slots are Liquid Gold and Polar Pioneers. Drawing on the information available, Liquid Gold seems to play on the meteoric rise in the crude oil prices earlier this year and Polar Pioneers seems to carry on with a winter theme. The third online slot is Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, a turbocharged version of the blockbuster progressive Microgaming slot Mega Moolah. Mega Moolah, incidentally, has crossed the $4.75 million mark and is steadily marching on to $5 million. Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive is a 5 reel and 15 payline slot with the same four tier jackpots but a totally new 5x multiplier booster. As in the earlier version the Mega Jackpot will hit for a minimum of million dollars on maximum bet. So move aside Mega Moolah because you will be facing competition from yourself.
