Microgaming is expanding its multiplayer online slots content with an ambitious strategy of uploading a new multiplayer game to online casinos every month. The slots developer is beginning 2014 with the release of The Finer Reels of Life slot.
The game is part of Microgaming’s successful 243 ways to win series, and provides players a taste of the finer things in life – a prelude to potential jackpot winners. The game includes multiple bonuses, a celebration triggered by activating wild symbols, and a multi level Finer Features bonus round.
The bonus round is where players really get to experience the finer things in life. Players unlock multiple levels of the round each time they activate the bonus feature, which all offer prizes. The final level is known as Champagne and Diamonds, which provides players 25 free spins as well as a Rolling Reels element.
The multiplayer version of the game was released at Microgaming online casinos earlier this month, and is expected to be integral to online gaming tournaments within the casino networks. In particular, The Finer Reels of Life will be part of the March to Riches online slots tournament in March of this year, which rewards up to £100,000 ($180,000) in prizes.
James Ford, a spokesperson for Microgaming, says the multiplayer tournaments were part of a strategy adopted last year to “inject a fresh element to tournament play.”
“We accomplished this and our suite of multi-player tournament games went from 11 to 21. This year shows no sign of us slowing down, and The Finer Reels of Life is the first of many new additions to the platform in 2014.”
