Yggdrasil and AvatarUX launch latest PopWins game WildPops™
Yggdrasil, the innovative online gaming solutions provider, has released its latest fun-filled slot title WildPops™ in partnership with YG Masters studio AvatarUX.
The ‘pays both ways’ slot utilises AvatarUX’s exciting PopWins™ mechanic, where winning symbols ‘pop’ and are replaced with two new symbols, something that can continue to expand for every cascading win on a single spin, offering great win potential.
A multiplier is added for every seventh Pop, meaning one spin can turn into huge wins if the Pops don’t stop and the reel grid continues to grow.
If three wins occur in a row, two random wilds are triggered, something that is repeated for every three consecutive wins, leading to even more Pops.
If the reels expand to seven columns high, the bonus round is triggered, and three extra lives are awarded to players. Where previously a non-win screen would end the multiplier, an extra life is consumed and a re-spin is awarded, while the multiplier remains throughout the duration of the spin.

Pearl Beauty: Hold and Win features a Bonus Game which is triggered by six or more bonus pearl symbols. The special Golden Pearl symbol during the Bonus Game collects the values of the other pearls and immediately adds it to the total win.
During the bonus round, there is an additional chance to win three in-game Jackpots – Mini, Major and Grand – adding even more suspense to that Bonus Game.
Battle for glory in Lightning Box’s Spartan Fire
Specialist slot provider Lightning Box has prepared for battle with the launch of its latest title, Spartan Fire.
The 4×5 reel slot features 40 paylines as players fight for big wins. With the Wild Eyes symbol acting as a wild, the Spartan Spin feature also turns the Man and Woman icons into wilds for even bigger wins.
If three or more Spartan Shields land on the reels, the Spartan Fire Bonus is triggered, giving players a chance to choose their shields to lead them to glory.
Each shield reveals a different icon, with multipliers, wilds and extra free game(s) to be unlocked. Players can even win up to nine free games with a 30x multiplier!
Initially exclusively available with Kindred for a two-week period, Spartan Fire will be released through the SG Digital platform.
