New Games

Red Tiger’s Arabian Adventure

NetEnt’s innovative Red Tiger iGaming studio is back with a new game infused with middle eastern culture. Modelled on the iconic One Thousand- and One-Nights collection of Arabian folk tales, Red Tiger’s new 10 001 Nights Megaways online slot brings these mystic adventures to the reels.

The ornately decorated reels are backed by the image of an opulently designed room with rich reds and golds featuring as the main colours. Vivid portraits of characters, beasts and treasures appear as symbols in this feature-rich experience.

When special Oil Lamp symbols appear, they will fill the Feature Lamps above each reel with magic oil. Once they fill up completely, one of four features will activate.

The Imperial Spin feature removes lower-value symbols, the Random Wilds feature adds wilds to random positions on the reels, the Multi-Pick feature activates a mini pick-me game with multiplier prizes, and the Mega Wild feature adds a huge 1×4 wild that fills an entire reel.

The game runs on a maximum of 117,649 paylines thanks to the Megaways mechanic, and you could claim wins worth up to 10 500x your bet from a single spin.

Jones, the head of business development at Evolution, which acquired NetEnt in 2019, said,

Players are going to be transported back to Old Arabia with this brand new 10,001 Nights Megaways game. The graphics are stunning, and the team have truly created a decadent atmosphere that’s going to hook players right from the word go. Genie lamps, jewels, rich colours and the Sultan himself all contribute to the sights and sounds of the thrilling tale of Scheherazade.

Stakelogic’s Juicy Jamboree

Stakelogic has returned with a sun-and-sand-filled slot experience with its new festive Hola Frutas game.

Travel to an idyllic tropical island where a vine-bound 6x6 reel layout features plump exotic fruits as symbols. There are no paylines to mention because the cascading reels mechanic removes winning symbol combinations from the grid, allowing new symbols to appear in their place.

Losing spins aren’t always the end because the random Wave feature sends a smiling citrus surfing across the reels, removing the bottom row of symbols and giving you a second chance at a win. If you activate the Super Stake feature that doubles your bet, random multipliers worth up to 100x are added to the reels.

Land 3 bonus symbols and one regular symbol will be selected as the special frozen symbol. When this symbol appears during the feature, it becomes sticky and stays on the reels, and if new chosen symbols appear on the next free spin, they also become frozen, and the process repeats, building up big wins.

Multipliers worth up to 12x can land during the bonus round, as well as special Question Mark symbols that can transform into multipliers worth 15x, 20x, 25x, 50x and 100x.

Olga Bajela, the CCO at Stakelogic, said,

We all dream of heading to paradise and with Hola Frutas players can do just that. But more awaits than just sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters – Wilds, Multipliers and Free Spins ensure a trip to this slot game is the trip of a lifetime.

Winners

The End is Nigh

The B.C. Lottery Corporation (BCLC) has released a communication urging the holder of an unclaimed $15M lottery ticket sold last August to come forward before time runs out.

The Lotto Max ticket was bought in Vancouver and managed to match all seven numbers from the August 13, 2021, draw.

The BCLC pleaded with players to double check their old tickets in a news release that read,

"Where were you last August? Be sure to check your beach bags, suitcases, glove boxes or anywhere else for a winning $15 million Lotto Max ticket."

Holders of winning lottery winners have 52 weeks to claim their winnings, meaning this particular ticket will only be valid until midnight on Aug. 13, 2022.

$17 Million Lotto 6/49 Jackpot Waits in The Wings

Somewhere in Western Canada, a lucky Lotto 6/49 player is $17,183,706.90 million richer, but they might not know it yet.

The BCLC released a statement advising that the winning ticket was sold by the Western Canada Lottery Corporation (WCLC), narrowing the winner’s location down to Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, or the northern territories.

The ticket was the only one that matched all six numbers from the Saturday, July 30 Lotto 6/49 draw, resulting in the multimillion-dollar prize.

Don’t forget to check your ticket, because even if you aren’t the big winner, you could still be in line for one of the 20 guaranteed $10 000 prizes, or the guaranteed $1 million award.

Billion Dollar Chance

Canadians don’t have to envy their southern neighbours when it comes to potential lottery winnings because the iconic US$1.1 billion (around $1.4 billion in local currency) Mega Millions jackpot is open to locals.

The Mega Millions lottery is a US-based game and now Canadians can join in on the fun and get in line to win the third-largest jackpot in U.S. history.

Participants have up until about an hour before the Friday 5 August draw time to get their hands on tickets and potentially claim the jackpot which has been building momentum for 3 months.

With only a 1 in 302.5 million chance to win, the odds may be stacked against you, but you can’t win if you don’t play.

If you’re near the border you can get your Mega Millions lottery ticket by taking a short drive south, but remember, you can’t get them in Nevada, Utah, Alabama, Hawaii and Alaska. You could also ask friends or family to buy a ticket for you or use one of the various third-party services that facilitate the purchasing process on your behalf.
