Trust Microgaming to begin the New Year with a bang. In the online slots games that will be launched in January 2010 Microgaming has raised the bar again. There are three slot games in the pack but the one that will be the talk of the town is Arctic Fortune.

In 2009 Microgaming was the first online gaming software provider to introduce a slot game with 243 paylines or ways to win. Arctic Fortune has 1024 ways to win. This is because this 5 reel video slot has four rows of symbols on the reels and all possible combinations of symbols across the reels work out to 1024. Even without this innovation Arctic Fortune has plenty to offer. It takes players back to the Viking era when the hardy race occupied a rugged landscape. This atmosphere is ably created by symbols like the longship, the husky dog and the Viking warriors themselves. The fortune part is symbolized by the treasure chest and the horn of plenty. The scatter treasure map leads to the free spins bonus round that offers up to 40 free spins at up to 6x multiplier.

Robbie the Robot Butler is better than Jeeves. Players can begin the New Year in the futuristic environment of this slot game with a butler that does everything you want but makes no demands on you. Robot Butler is a 5 reel 20 payline slot game with wild symbol, scatter symbol, free spins bonus round, bonus game on the second screen and gamble game. The soul of the slot lies in the bonus game on the second screen. The player asks Robbie to find his keys, pipe or newspaper. If Robbie succeeds then the payout can be up to 100x the triggering bet. If Robbie fails then he gets a second chance. If he fails again the player is at least assured of a consolation prize.

The last offering is a branded slot that brings the popular nineties comic book hero Hellboy to the reels. The other characters from this comic book series, like Prof. Trevor Bruttenholm, Johann Krause, Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman also find space on the reels. The stylizing of this slot game replicates the electrifying atmosphere of the comic book. Hellboy has a pulsating Underground Bonus feature. Players have to go through four levels of underground tunnels searching for friends and trying to avoid blockages that will bring a premature end to the feature. Players who complete all four levels reach the Chamber of Fire where greater rewards await them.

These three online slot games will go live at all Microgaming powered online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Platinum Play, Roxy Palace, River Belle and All Slots.

Hellboy game looks and sounds interesting but I think that the graphics from the Arctic Fortune game are really interesting and impressive. I think that they've done a really good job with these batch of games.

I noticed that it looks like they're going to be offering tabs in this game which makes me thing that they'll be letting you play more then one game at a time now which is something that really rocks about Playtech's software that I think would be really interesting to see how they go about implementing it on their end!
