Microgaming is a renowned brand in the online casino industry. This is why everybody knows who this software provider is and what it does. In this article, I want to talk about the latest slots releases of this year, and what does each game offer.

Lucky Twins Slot
Lucky Twins is a slot game that follows an Asian theme. The cool graphics and the constant sound of the gong create an entertaining and fun atmosphere. The game has 5 reels and 9 pay lines. The Wild symbol is the fortune children while the Maneki Neko Waving Cat is there to support you.
I tried this game for you in the demo version, and I was surprised by the magnitude of the winnings. You don’t have to click the “Spin” button for too many times to get a winning combination. Furthermore, the amounts you receive are pretty impressive. This is a game I recommend.
Peek-A-Boo was released in January, together with Lucky Twins. This game is all about chasing ghosts so though it sounds spooky, it is quite comic. There are 5 reels and 40 pay lines, so the chances of winning are quite high. The lucky symbol of the game is the quirky kid who zaps ghosts. If you are lucky enough to get it on the reel, it unlocks 10 frees spins and cash prizes.
After testing this game, I can say that it is funny. It reminds me of Halloween, with ghosts, kids who play dress up and candies. The sounds are not very impressive, but what manages to keep your interest high is the chance to get those free spins. Though the winnings were not as impressive as they were for Lucky Twins, it is a good alternative when you get bored.
Untamed Giant Panda Slot
January was a productive month for Microgaming, as it also released the mobile version of Untamed Giant Panda. This game has 5 reels and no more and no less than 243 pay lines. This is pretty impressive, considering that you can take it with you everywhere and win. What I like about this game is the three symbols that trigger bonus games with free spins and other delightful benefits.
The graphics are pretty simplistic as they are all about pandas, jungle and letters. What I find fascinating is the bonus game triggered by wilds. You get to choose between gambling or just collecting the bonus. It’s entertaining as you can’t wait to play the bonus rounds again.
