Pragmatic’s Aztec Aspirations
Pragmatic Play is back and showcasing its new Connect & Collect mechanic in the freshly released Firebird Spirit online slot.
The 5x6, 1875 payline game bears a detailed and dazzling Aztec theme, complete with magical artefacts and a striking shaman. The Firebird wild substitutes for all regular symbols while Connect & Collect symbols form chains across the reels, unlocking prize symbols when they land on special positions.
Quick Collects give your bankroll regular boosts, alongside the game’s Respin Rounds, Money Values, Jackpots, additional wilds, and free spins. The game’s top winning potential is 4250x your stake, so take a trip to the past and win big.
Cash in with Stakelogic
Mosey on into a Wild West town and make sure you’re quick on the draw to win big in Stakelogic’s new online slot adventure, Cash Express.
The game sports a 5×3-reel layout with 25 paylines and a Western-inspired theme that includes quick-witted gunslingers as high-value symbols. When train symbols make an appearance, they are collected in a meter above the reels, paving the way for you to access the Bonus Enhancers.
The Bonus Enhancers kick in when you trigger the respins bonus round, where you have to fill the bottom row with trains to claim multipliers worth up to 100x.
Olga Bajela, the CCO at Stakelogic, said,
“This is our take on the popular Western runaway train theme and in typical Stakelogic fashion we have electrified the gameplay with big bonuses that build anticipation and that will have players gripping their seats with excitement. Cash Express really is a fast-paced thrill ride so players will need to hold on tight as the Train symbols land, the Cash Bonus round triggers and the Bonus Enhancer symbols dash across the tracks.”
Lotto Max Jackpot Gets Interesting
Without an outright winner to claim its multi-million bounty, the Lotto Max jackpot has grown to $126 million in total prizes.
The last time someone claimed the jackpot was during the August 12 2022, draw, so now would be the ideal time to get your lucky numbers in. Aside from the $70 million prize, the next draw will see 56 Maxmillions prizes up for grabs.
The recent draw saw three winning Maxmillions tickets being sold in Ottawa, Nepean, and Etobicoke. A Vaughan resident also picked up a tidy prize of $100 000 from an Encore prize-winning ticket.
Lotto Loving Duo Win Big
Two lottery winners from Alberta may soon have a new place to call home after taking home a sizeable Lotto Max prize.
Donald Shulze and Shelly Prouty of Alhambra claimed $100,000 from the August 30 Lotto Max draw and have revealed that they plan to put their winnings towards a new home.
Shulze had been checking old tickets at a local store when he realised that one of them was worth a tidy sum.
“I saw all the zeroes, I put the ticket back into my pocket and went home,” he recalled when collecting his prize from the WCLC.
“I thought Don was playing a joke on me, I mean… when you always buy tickets hoping to win, and then you do, it comes as a total shock,” Schulze added.
