Through a press release from its headquarters in Isle of Man, Microgaming has informed that it has released eight new bingo side games in August 2009. Microgaming is a leading online gaming software developer that powers bingo halls in addition to online casinos and poker rooms. In its bingo halls Microgaming provides a number of bingo side games. Microgaming believes that bingo players need something to do while they wait for the balls to be drawn in the regular bingo game. The side games offered at Microgaming bingo halls fill this need. With these eight new side games Microgaming has raised the "entertainment factor in its bingo offering".
The bingo side games released in August fall into four categories. These are Video Slots, Scratchcards, Casual Games and UK-pub style slot games. Three of the games are Video Slots. Big Break is a 15 payline slot game with "monkeys and apes to make players go wild!" A unique feature is the Lucky Break symbol that appears on reel five and allows wins from left to right as well. Another interesting feature in Big Break is that all high symbols are scatters, and multiply the win by the total bet. Harveys is a 5 reel and 25 payline slot game with a fantastic free spins round, which offers between 6 and 30 recurring free spins with up to 25x multiplier. The champagne and snail symbols are the ones to watch out for. For those who love the old fashioned slot game, Microgaming has released Don Deal. Don Deal is a 3 reel and 1 payline slot which "oozes the rich smell of cash".
Hairy Fairies and Turtley Awesome are the additions to the Scratchcards. The games feature "charming little characters that scratch away to reveal sumptuous rewards". The players are required to match three symbols in order to vie for the top prize that offers up to 2,500 times the initial stake.
Three Wheeler is the Casual Game. In an interesting twist dice have been replaced by spinning wheels. The wheels spin independently of each other. The bets conform to the totals of the numbers shown on one, two or three of the wheels.
UK-pub style slot games are extremely popular and Microgaming specializes in these. Two such games are present in the bingo side games released in August. Lucky Darts has three games in one, which are played across three separate screens. These games are a main reel, a super game and a feature game. Billion Dollar Gran is full of symbols dedicated to rich grandmothers such as cups of tea, jewelry boxes, pearls, battenburg cake and knitting. When three bowl symbols appear on the win line an attractive video feature game is triggered.
