Every week in Canada is choc-full of interesting and surprising events and the gambling sphere is no exception. Join us as we journey through some of the most impactful stories of the last few days.
Play’n GO’s luck o’ the Irish
Play’n GO has added another entertaining online slot title to its superior selection of games as it revives a beloved character. Leprechaun’s Vault reintroduces you to the magic of the Emerald with bright cheery graphics and the studio’s instantly recognisable leprechaun character.
The game sports a 5x3 layout and offers wins worth up to 9000x your bet, achievable via the selection of enthralling special features.
Larkin the leprechaun is the star of the show, and his tales are always filled with troubles and tribulations. In this new game, Larkin is up against the mischief of fairies who have stolen his key to the magical vault, and he needs your help to get it back.
A coin bag is the Multiplier Wild symbol that substitutes for all the symbols except for the scatter symbol in the shape of a key. Wilds only appear on the central reels and boost your winnings by up to 4x.
Land three key Scatters on reels 1, 3, and 5 to activate Treasure Free Spins, but before the bonus round kicks off, you will encounter the vault that determines the number of free spins you will get. While the feature is active, wild symbols become sticky and remain on the reels until your free spins are finished.
The Head of Games at Play’n GO, Charlotte Miliziano, said,
"The Leprechaun theme is a popular one in the industry, and we think Larkin’s cheeky personality matches Play’n GO’s outlook perfectly.”
Pragmatic Bares its Fangs
Pragmatic Play presents an alternative view of a classic fairy-tale figure in its brand-new online slot.
The developer’s new game is named Greedy Wolf and features compelling cartoon graphics and a top winning potential of 3000x your stake.
The action takes place on a 5×4 grid with 20 paylines where the big bad wolf and his piggy prey feature as symbols against a farmyard backdrop.
The wild substitutes for all symbols except the scatter symbol. Six scatters activate the bonus round where symbols are upgraded during the course of play and pay you fabulous prizes once the round is over.
The Greedy Wolf mechanic places a stacked wolf symbol on the middle reel and transforms any adjacent pig symbols into wolves for a big win. On non-winning spins, the wolf can randomly appear to blow all the symbols away, allowing new symbols to appear and guaranteeing you a win.
Another feature sees a random number of Wilds added to the first three reels, prompting the wolf to appear once again, shifting any wilds one position to the right and triggering a respin.
With wins worth up to 2400x from a single spin, and a theme bursting with folklore fun, Greedy Wolf is a worthy addition to Pragmatic’s catalogue of exciting titles.
Lucky Ontarian gets a Big Lotto Break
Frank Jarman from the Etobicoke area of Toronto recently claimed his $6 million Lotto 6/49 prize from the game’s June 4 draw.
"I was at my regular store doing my lottery business when I checked my ticket using the ticket checker. When I saw $6 million appear on the screen I jumped back, and then checked it again. I didn't believe what I was seeing so I asked the store clerk for a printout of the winning numbers," Jarman recalled.
"My wife saw the look on my face and asked what happened and I said, 'I think we can retire. I’ll take some time for this to settle in before making any big decisions. I feel so blessed and extremely fortunate. I always said five or six million is just the right amount," he exclaimed.
Jarman also revealed that he has played the lottery regularly since the 70s and plans on investing his winnings as well as doing some home renovations he has been planning.
To date, Lotto 6/49 has awarded players in Ontario over $13.7 billion in prizes since 1982. This comprises 1421 jackpots and 422 Guaranteed $1 Million prizes.
One lucky Lotto Max player in Toronto could be soon going from franks and beans to filet mignon, but they need to step up and claim their prize.
The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) recently revealed the momentous news and encouraged players in Toronto to check their tickets and contact the Crown agency to claim the huge $55 Million jackpot prize.
This latest win was generated by the Friday, August 5, 2022, draw and the winner has 52 weeks from this date to contact the OLG before the award expires.
