Microgaming Slots 2013 – A Year in Review

secret-santa-slot2It was a busy year as usual in 2013 for Microgaming, and with plenty of new slot games released throughout the past year, we have decided to take a look back at some of their most popular brand new slot games that have graced our computer screens over the last 12 months.

January saw Microgaming launch their The Finer Reels of Life slot game, it was a great game to start the year of with and was one of their 243 All Ways slot on which a plethora of different bonus games can be triggered, probably the one stand out bonus game is the Wild Celebration one, this is randomly awarded and will see up to five reels turning completely wild.

In February of 2013 Microgaming treated their online slot players to two fine examples of their multi line bonus video slots, the first being the Starlight Kiss slot which is a love themed slot they launched in time for Valentine’s Day, plus their unique playing Jason and the Golden Fleece slot on which an obligatory 25 paylines need to be set into play and as you trigger the bonus rounds more and more a series of additional bonus features become unlocked.

March saw the launched of the Oriental themed Tiger Moon slot on which two wild symbols are in play and when spun in together on the same base game spin a massive 20x multiplier comes into play. The second slot was the fast paced and action packed Girls with Guns slot which came with stacked wild symbols and a fairly standard free spins type bonus game.

Microgaming released and launched their Piggy Fortunes slot game in April 2013 and it came with a very unique free spins bonus game on which you could blow up a set of houses as the free spins played out for spinning in certain symbols and when that happened additional multipliers come into force.

We saw both the Bust the Bank and Mystic Dreams slot games going live in May of 2013 and if we have to pick which of these two slot games was the best slot it would have to be the Indian themed Mystic Dreams slots, due to it being an optional payline slot and one on which the free spins bonus game does seem to trigger more often that other slots offering such a bonus feature round.

In June Microgaming treated us to two excellent playing slots both of which have their legendary high payout percentages attached to them. These two very unique looking and playing slots were the Dr. Watts Up and another of their nursery rhyme themed slot games which make up their Rhyming Reels series of slots that being the Jack and Jill slot game.

One slot game that did take Microgaming quite a while to design and then finally launch was the erotic themed Playboy, and this finally hit our computer screens in July of 2013, and boy was it worth the wait.

August saw Microgaming launch a fishing themed slot game to complement their several other slots offering such a theme and this slot was the Big Catch game which is a 243 Always slot on which a free spins bonus game can be triggered and could award some fair large winning payout.

We did not see any new slot games released by Microgaming in September, however slot players did not have to wait very long to be able to access a large range of new slot games for the following month, as you are about to find out Microgaming launched no fewer than four new slot games.

In October Microgaming appeared to go new slot game crazy and launched their Dolphin Quest, Rhyming Reels Georgie Porgie, Sweet Harvest and The Dark Knight Rises slot games online, however it has been the latter named The Dark Knight Rises slot which offers players one of the best playing formats and structures and is a game well worth hunting down and playing.

November 2013 saw Microgaming bring online their Racing for Pinks slot this is a racing themed slot which has to be played for the bonus game alone. Once triggered you will be racing your way around a bonus board hopefully picking up a range of huge multipliers for picking the winner of multiple races.

It would appear that Microgaming saved one of their best new slot games till then end of the year, and it was in December of 2013 that their Secret Santa slot game went live, and boy if you are looking for a fully rounded slot offering plenty of bonus games and bonus features then this is a Christmas themed slot to play at any time of the year.

Best New Microgaming Slot of 2013

If we have to choose just one of the many new slot games that Microgaming launched in 2013 as the best and most playable one if has to be their stunning The Dark Knight Rises slot game, which is the second slot in the Batman series of slots.

A lot of time and effort has obviously gone into the design of this multi bonus game awarding slot game, and one thing you can always guarantee when you give it any amount of play time is that anything can, and probably will happen.

If you do get some spare slot play time any time soon then please do give this slot games a try, for thanks to its unique playing format and several randomly awarded base and bonus game features you will find it one of the most fully rounded online slot games found in the entire Microgaming slot game menu.

If 2013 has been anything to go by then all online slot players are in for a real treat during 2014 for Microgaming have some very unique slot games in development which will be hitting a computer screen near you throughout 2014 and one of the new slots is going to be the Avalon 2 slot game.
