Isle of Man, April 29, 2004 – Turnkey software provider, Microgaming, announces the launch of their April 2004 new games release including 5-reel versions of progressive jackpot favourites – Cash Splash and Major Millions. Additionally, two brand new five-reel, nine-payline video slots and a Jacks or Better addition to the popular x10 Power Poker series have also been released.
The classic Cash Splash slot that pioneered the big win progressives’ rush on the Internet now has a trendy companion in Cash Splash Progressive Video Slot. The difference from the original game is striking, as the new game not only features fresh, vibrant graphics and high speed action, but is a five-reel, nine-line gaming experience with a wild multiplier and scatter symbol that can double the jackpot.
The Major Millions progressive that created several instant millionaires is now available in an exciting new 5-reel version. Players can choose between the original three-reel format of this progressive and an extensively upgraded five-reel video slot platform that offers players 15 paylines for a maximum bet of $3 - that's fifteen chances to pull The Big One in Internet gambling! Both the 3-reel and new 5-reel versions are linked to the same progressive jackpot through the trusted Jackpot Madness network giving players more choice and more chances of seriously big wins.
For 5-reel, 9 payline video slot players, Skull Duggery offers scatter and wild symbols in an amusing, high spirited pirate treasure game. This new game has a humorous Caribbean flavour, filled with oddball characters and luscious 'wild' fruits.
Vinyl Countdown is a new 5-reel, 9 payline video slot that is bound to strike a chord with the rock n' roll generation of the 50's and 60's. With its fun retro-theme, catchy tunes, great sound and bright and breezy graphics, rock n’ roll enthusiasts are sure to be pleased.
Video poker players can enjoy ten times the fun...and ten times the reward on a brand new Jacks or Better game just added to the x10 Power Poker gambling suite. Gamblers can play ten hands at once, with a different 52 card pack for each hand. There is plenty of opportunity in this game as players can wager between 1 to 5 coins per hand and as little as one cent to two dollars for a chance to win jackpots up to US$80,000.
