The Top Four Online Slots featuring Tumbling Reels
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Games featuring “tumbling reels” are all the rage in the online slots industry today. Every developer seems to have a different name for this mechanic; Microgaming calls it “rolling reels”, NetEnt labels them “avalanches”, and Pragmatic Play likes to describe the feature as “cascades”. Whichever term is used to refer to this feature, it always means the same thing – winning symbol combinations are immediately removed from play, potentially allowing you to win several times from a single paid spin.

The feature has become so ubiquitous in the online cazino industry that it is now used by almost every type of video slot; traditional line-based slots, Megaways, grid slots, scatter-pays, the feature can be found in every variety of game you can imagine. We’ve picked just a few of our favorites for this article, along with a few honorable mentions in case our picks are not to your liking!

Gonzo’s Quest Megaways – Red Tiger

It was a tough decision choosing between the original Gonzo’s Quest and this Megaways update, but Red Tiger’s implementation of the popular adventure-themed machine just has the edge thanks to it’s top win of more than 20,000x the current stake. The game uses a 6×7 reel set with the familiar 117,649 pay way count that is common to so many other Megaways games.

Every time a winning combination is removed from the reels, a higher multiplier is activated which will then be applied to any winning combinations that result from the next symbol tumble. During the free spins bonus round, the multipliers get even larger! Throw in an earthquake modifier that removes all the low-paying symbols from the reels, and you have an entertaining game that is certain to keep you interested over the long term.

Pyramid Bonanza – Pragmatic Play

This is one of Pragmatic Play’s most generous online slots, offering a maximum win well in excess of 20,000x the current stake. The game uses a 6×4 playfield with a unique “scatter-pay” mechanic, meaning that there are no pay ways or pay lines to worry about here. Instead, any set of eight or more matching symbols appearing anywhere on the reel set will award a win, which also means you can win up to three times on each individual tumble.

The bonus round ups the ante even further by introducing a new multiplier symbol with values of between 2x and 100x. If more than one of these symbols features in a winning combination, the multipliers are added together before being applied to the total win from the current round. This game is relatively unknown in comparison to the Gonzo’s Quest franchise, but don’t be fooled – it’s every bit as good!

Gigantoonz – Play’N’Go

This sequel to the hugely popular Reactoonz online slot takes everything that was great about the original and makes it bigger – literally! The charger feature is back, this time with many more unique features and modifiers to boost your winning combinations, whilst a new mega symbol makes it much easier to create large winning clusters.

Non-winning spins can receive an automatic boost from the Quantum Wild feature, whilst the new Quantumeter is capable of summoning the biggest reactoon yet… Gagantoonz! When the charging meter reaches maximum capacity, all mega symbols will instantly transform into Mega Gargantoonz, offering a top win of 10,000x your bet.

Dead Canary – Nolimit City

Nolimit City’s games have gone from strength to strength over the last couple of years and are now becoming a common site at the largest platforms on the web. The developer tends to concentrate on mature themes, and Dead Canary is no exception. The game uses an unusual reel set with 1,727 pay ways, although you’ll need to unlock many of the grid positions first to take advantage of the full quota.

This developer loves to pack their games with wacky features, and Dead Canary certainly has plenty to talk about! XBomb explosions create x-shaped shockwaves, which gives your tumbles an unusual cadence that can take some getting used to! The wild mining feature activates whenever you hit three or more matching symbols in a diagonal line, and there are multiple free spin modes to experience. The top win is capped at a hefty 65,000x the current stake, which should be more than enough to excite even the greediest of slot players!

Five teams have won over the Games Lift awarding committee with their game projects. On September 9, the Games Lift Incubator will start for them as a unique support program in Germany. Included is a one-year workshop and mentoring program with international industry experts and 15,000 euros in financial support, as well as room for collaboration and exchange with the other participating teams. More than 30 experts in game design, product development, pitching, business development, press relations and marketing from the Games Lift network will share their experience with the teams to give their projects a professional start. Starting this year, the program also offers participating teams a joint trip to an international industry event. The Games Lift Incubator is organized and implemented by Gamecity Hamburg on behalf of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg.

A total of 21 teams and solo developers applied for the fourth Games Lift Incubator. The decision for the five participating teams was made by the awarding committee, consisting of Kristin von der Wense (Publishing Producer Daedalic Entertainment), Ole Schaper (Managing Director The Sandbox Hamburg (Sviper GmbH)), Heiko Gogolin (Managing Director Rocket Beans Entertainment) and Tobias Graff (Co-Founder, Programmer and CEO Mooneye Studios).

Margarete Schneider, Project Manager at Gamecity Hamburg, on the award committee’s decision: “We are delighted with the large number of applications for our incubator and the high standard of the pitch decks submitted once again. It is particularly pleasing that we are receiving more applications from outside Hamburg, who see the city as an attractive location for starting a new business. The Games Lift Incubator provides gaming start-ups with comprehensive starting support and enables them to forge connections in Hamburg’s diverse games scene.

The five winner projects and teams for Games Lift Incubator 2024:

  • ForeFeathers by Team Honeybeak
  • Frisia – Cozy Villages by Rouven Cabanis
  • Light of Atlantis by Duck ‘n’ Run Games
  • Pubcrawler by Triflgard
  • Tiny Garden by Tales from the Garden

ForeFeathers by Team Honeybeak is a 3D Puzzle-Platformer where players slip into the role of a penguin, who explores the sky-high ruins of an ancient civilization of birds. Traversing the flying islands with the ancient powers of flight, solving tricky puzzles and keeping the penguin’s friends away from trouble are some main aspects of the game.

In Frisia – Cozy Villages by Rouven Cabanis the player gains control over an uninhabited Northsea island and is tasked with building a functional, yet cozy and beautiful little town. Inspired by the frisian architecture of the Dutch and German Northsea coast, Frisia aims to create a cozy gameplay experience in harmony with simple town-building and strategy game mechanics.

Light of Atlantis by Duck ‘n’ Run Games is a 2D puzzle metroidvania in which players take on the roles of various robots with individual abilities to explore the sunken ruins of Atlantis. By draining and releasing water into the various rooms, the robots shape their environment and improve their chances against different enemies. Light of Atlantis was part of the Gamecity Hamburg prototype funding in 2023 and received in the same year the German Computer Game Award (Deutscher Computerspielpreis) in the category “Best Prototype”.

Pubcrawler by Triflgard is a co-op PC game in which up to four players need to work as a team, to navigate a giant, mechanic, wandering pub through an apocalyptic wasteland. In the process, they must complete a variety of challenging tasks that can only be mastered as a team. Working together efficiently, pleasing the different guests and keeping a cool head even when the giant pubcrawler faces technical issues are the key to a successful journey.

In Tiny Garden by Tales from the Garden players slip into the role of a deity who fills a deserted planet with life. Together with their servants, a group of cute leaf creatures that must be protected from evil spirits, they plant a constantly growing garden. As soon as the garden is fully grown, the evil spirits can be soothed and the player can move on to the next planet in help.

The gaming phenomenon arrives in Portugal: Solverde.pt is the first Portuguese casino with Crash Games
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Solverde.pt is the first Portuguese online casino with Crash Games, the global phenomenon that has revolutionized the gaming sector. The company now offers this new online game format with 13 games, developed by 3 studios, including 100% national and exclusive games, developed by the Portuguese studio Darwin. More games are being prepared to launch in the coming weeks.

Crash Games are a new casino game that is changing the logic of online gaming. Directly inspired by the blockchain universe, this format began among cryptocurrency aficionados, was adopted by online casinos and impacted all regions of the globe where it was launched as a successful phenomenon.

Crash Games usually involve a flying object, such as a plane, traveling in an ascending line; players place their bets which are multiplied as the plane ascends. Players then have to decide when to withdraw their bets before the plane “runs away”. The key is to choose the ideal moment to “cash out”, that is, hit the highest multiplier before the crash moment.

Solverde.pt will initially make available 13 Crash Games games from 4 studios: Darwin, Playtech, and ESA Gaming. Among the launches, two Portuguese games exclusively on Solverde.pt stand out, “O Avião” and “Foguetão”, developed by the Portuguese studio Darwin, specialized in mobile. Also noteworthy is the “Luva de Pedreiro” themed game, a social media phenomenon. In the coming days and weeks, the company will launch even more Crash Games options, reinforcing its leadership as the online casino with the most games available; Recently, Solverde.pt reached the milestone of 3 thousand games on a single platform.

This is a completely disruptive form of entertainment that finally arrives in Portugal, through Solverde.pt. It is a moment much anticipated and prepared by us. Crash Games involve a fast and fun game logic, close to gaming, which will boost the online casino universe, until today, essentially anchored in slot machines”, reflects Américo Loureiro, Director of Solverde.pt, adding “We believe that Crash Games can change the paradigm of online gaming in Portugal.”
