Two New Microgaming Pokies Available Now

Microgaming has released two new pokies that can be launched instantly on Microgaming’s Flash casino platform. One of these new pokies is called Girls with Guns – Jungle Heat, and the other is called Xcalibur. Both of these new pokies are non-downloadable and they were released in March 2013.

Girls with Guns has 5 reels and there are 243 ways to win per spin. This slot has a war/military theme and there are six main characters, all of which are sexy female gun-toting soldiers who are on a mission to unearth the mysteries of a drug baron’s camp which is located deep within the jungle.

The Girls with Guns logo is the Wild Symbol, pus there are also Expanding Wild Symbols. The Scatter Symbols are the Grenades and when three or more of these appear in view, you will instantly be awarded 15 Free Spins. With each spin that occurs during the Free Spins bonus round, a random reel will be transformed into a Wild Reel. Free Spins can also be retriggered.

This slot also has a Special Wild Symbol, which will only ever appear on reel 3 (the centre reel) and this has the ability to make the entire reel wild. Players can win up to as many as 1,900,000 coins from this new pokie.

The other new pokie, Xcalibur, has 5 reels and 50 winning paylines. This game is based on the legendary sword Xcalibur, so it has a mythical/dragon theme. The Wild Symbols are in fact the sword and these can expand to cover the entire reel to generate plenty of additional line wins. The Scatter Symbols are Merlin and the Bonus Symbols are the Key.


Three or more of the Scatter Symbols appearing anywhere from just one spin will trigger a Free Spins bonus round and if three or more of the Bonus Symbols appear on reels 2, 3 and 4 (from the same spin), the Key Bonus feature is automatically triggered. Once triggered, you will be transported away from the reels where you get to take part in a simple picking round where players are guaranteed to win a prize. You can keep making picks until you reveal the word collect.

These two new pokies have wide betting ranges and they are both available in the real cash mode and in the free play demo mode. Girls with Guns and Xcalibur are still so brand new (at the time of writing) that they are currently not yet widely available. Only five or so secure Microgaming powered online casinos have managed to acquire these two new games.
