Microgaming Online Pokies For The New Year

The two new online pokies released by Microgaming this month have been well received by New Zealand online casinos. Both Life of Riches and Huangdi - The Yellow Emperor are drawing high traffic at online casinos like Jackpot City, Platinum Play and Roxy Palace. You can play them on the desktop and mobile gaming platforms.

Life of Riches has the popular theme of an elitist life style that most of us usually only can dream about. This video pokie gives players an opportunity to indulge in their most ardent fantasies of flamboyant living. The high paying symbols are the activities that embody the life of riches such as playing golf, holidaying at beach resorts, being chauffeured around, frequent flyer air travel and gambling at casinos. The casino player symbol appears stacked in the base game and in the free spins. The low paying symbols are also thematic and include jet plane, sports car, yacht, travel luggage and passport. The game logo is the wild symbol with a 2x multiplier property. The earth is the scatter symbol. It triggers the only bonus feature in the video pokie, which consists of 10 free spins with all payouts doubled. Therefore, in the free spins the wild symbol multiplies payouts four times. The wild symbol also appears stacked in the free spins. Unlike in most video pokies, the free spins feature can retrigger only once.

The other new release at Microgaming powered online casinos is aimed at the Chinese New Year. Huangdi – The Yellow Emperor was a legendary ruler who achieved the status of a deity. As is the practice in Oriental themed video pokies, the symbols have ornate and detailed designs. The high paying symbols are the emperor Huangdi, a musical instrument, a medicine chest and Huangdi’s sword. The video pokie uses the usual playing card icons for the low paying symbols, but gives them Chinese styling to integrate them with the theme. Huangdi has the popular Expanding Symbols feature. The Huangdi symbol appears stacked on all reels, while the other high paying symbols appear stacked on reel 1 only. Any full symbol stack on reel 1 expands all matching symbols on the other reels. The dragon scatter symbol awards payouts multiplied by the total bet and triggers 15 free spins feature. During the free spins feature the Expanding Symbols become more powerful. The full symbol stack on reel 1 expands not only matching symbols on the other reels, but wild symbols as well.
