NetEnt Summons The Wish Master™ Megaways™ in Magical Sequel
NetEnt’s brand new The Wish Master™ Megaways™ rejuvenates the classic game, infusing nostalgia with Big Time Gaming’s industry-changing mechanics. As the familiar genie casts his magic on the reels, players can prepare for an enchanting entertainment experience, abundant features, and wins of up to 27,018x!
Genie lamp symbols summon the Wish Master onto the reels, who adds random unique features, and triggers five Wish Master Feature Spins.
The Extra Wild turns one of the two highest-paying symbols into a wild on every spin. The Wild Reel fills an entire reel with wilds and locks it for all the Wish Master Feature Spins. The Multiplier feature adds 2x or 3x win multipliers to potential payouts—if both are active, the max multiplier can reach 6x. The Random Wild feature adds two to five guaranteed wilds on each spin.
Nicholas Peters, Chief Business Development Officer Europe at Evolution, said: “The team’s hard work resulted in the revival of a great NetEnt classic, enhanced with Big Time Gaming’s ground-breaking MegawaysTM mechanics. The familiar genie entertains players with a handful of special features, accompanied by up to 117,649 ways to win. Players can, once again, enter the lair of the Wish MasterTM and see what he has in store.”
NetEnt’s Taco Fury™ XXXtreme Takes Players to a Post-Apocalyptic, Zombie Filled World
NetEnt has launched its latest slot game, Taco FuryTM XXXtreme, where Chef Zombie serves questionable delicacies from a rusty food truck. Taco Wilds, Wild Explosions and XXXtreme Spins swarm the gaming grid set in a post-apocalyptic, brave new world to entertain players.
An extra horizontal reel spans above the middle reels. The Wild Explosion Feature is activated when at least 1 of the 3 different Wild Explosion symbols slides onto the horizontal reel with Taco Wilds beneath. Taco Wilds then receive Win Multiplier upgrades, and more Taco Wilds are blasted onto the gaming grid to boost the potential payout for players. Once the upgrades and payouts come to an end, the Wild Explosion Feature anchors the Taco Wilds onto the gaming grid with clattering chains and triggers a Respin for potentially more rewards.
Players can also toggle on XXXtreme Spins, where they can choose from two different options for 20x and 60x the bet. They can enjoy either 1 or 2 guaranteed Wild Explosions on each spin until the XXXtreme Spins button is toggled off again.
Nicholas Peters, Chief Business Development Officer Europe at Evolution, said: “Thanks to the quirky theme and fun mix of features, NetEnt’s Taco FuryTM XXXtreme is an entertaining gaming experience. Our talented team has created a game that will engage players with multiplier Wilds and Respins, plus the added bonus guaranteed Wild Explosions in XXXtreme Spins. Just stay out of Chef Zombie’s way, you wouldn’t want to end up on the menu!”
NetEnt’s New Buster’s BonesTM Game Brings Paw-Some Features and Characters
Fierce pooches roam the dusty back roads of a never-ending canyon in NetEnt’s brand-new Buster’s BonesTM video slot. As Buster prowls the reels collecting bones, he leaves Wilds behind and amasses a tail-wagging win multiplier.
This Cluster Pays™ slot boasts thrilling gameplay as the Buster’s BonesTM Feature leaves no bone unturned. When the Buster special symbol bounds onto the gaming grid he sets eyes on available bone symbols and jumps around the reels to gobble them all up. Before moving on, he turns each bone into a Wild, which substitutes for all paying symbols. Bone symbols have a value from 1 to 5 which add up to a multiplier Buster carries with him. After all bones are eaten, Buster becomes a Wild and uses this multiplier to boost potential winnings.
Buster also triggers 8 Free Spins when he is accompanied on the reels by 2 Free Spins scatter symbols. Free Spins takes place in a dimy-lit saloon, where Buster jumps around the reels for the entire bonus round collecting bones and increasing his multiplier. If 1 or 2 additional Free Spins scatter symbols land during the bonus round, 1 or 3 extra Free Spins are awarded, respectively.
Nicholas Peters, Chief Business Development Officer Europe at Evolution, said: “Buster’s BonesTM, which was NetEnt’s headliner during ICE London 2023 earlier this year, is an exciting game thanks to its special namesake feature. Buster is an all-encompassing character, turning bones into Wilds and generating a win multiplier. The team has created a great combination; the game’s features, theme, artwork and soundtrack come together, bringing a wonderful concept to life so players can have a howling good time.”
