It’s time to take a look at another duo of slots, which have just made their way onto the scene as part of the wider winter collection. You can expect a ton of new arrivals over the coming months, though as always you certainly can’t expect them all to be up to the same standard. So today, we’ll be shining light on two of the bigger-name slots to emerge this month, in order to help point you in the direction of something you’ll enjoy.
Cirque Du Soleil Kooza
First up, Bally Technologies have unleashed Cirque Du Soleil Kooza on the world, with the aim of bringing all the fun, magic and marvelousness of the world-famous circus right into your home. Or your pocket, if you prefer. If you know Cirque Du Soleil, you’ll know it’s one of the most electrifying and mesmerizing spectacles on the face of the Earth, meaning a lot to live up to for a slot bearing the same name.
First impressions definitely paint a positive picture of what’s on offer. Cirque Du Soleil Kooza is a very nice-looking slot, with five reels and 40 paylines to play for. Each spin starts from just 20p and goes up to a maximum of £1, making it an affordable slot to try your luck with. Along with generous jackpots, there’s also a Pick Bonus, a bonus Wheel and free spins to play for. The wild symbol is good for taking the place of any other symbol in the game, with the exception of the Box and Bonus symbols.
There’s a Mystery Stacked Reels feature to play for, in which all mystery symbol positions are replaced with the same symbol on every spin. This can be triggered at any time randomly during normal play. Then there’s the Box Pick feature, which as the name suggests involves taking your pick of the three boxes that appear in front of you. Potential wins include cash prizes, or you may be sent over to take a spin on the Bonus Wheel.
Speaking of which, the Bonus Wheel is activated upon landing Bonus symbols on the second, third and fourth reels. With each spin of the wheel, you have the opportunity to win a cash prize, access the Jackpot Wheels, the Wheels of Death Free Games bonus or the Trickster Free Games bonus. In all instances, you’re in for good times!
The Trickster Free Games Bonus feature means accessing 10 free spins and a cash prize worth double your wager. So the more you place on the line, the more you’ll win. Tricksters can appear at any time and turn existing symbols into symbols of higher value.
The Wheel of Death Free Games Bonus feature is also good for a cash prize worth double your wager, along with up to 12 free spins coupled with a multiplier of up to 4X. Up to 15 additional free spins can be won during the bonus round, opening up the possibility of even bigger wins.
Last up, there’s also the Jackpot Wheel feature, where there are four jackpots that can be won with a spin of the wheel – Tres Magnifique, Colossal, Grand or Mini.
As you can see, there’s a lot going on with Cirque Du Soleil Kooza and this is the kind of slot you’re going to find it difficult to get bored of. There are excellent jackpots and prizes to play for, endless bonus features and the whole package is perfectly polished. If you’re looking for a medium variance game with more than enough to keep you busy for hours, Cirque Du Soleil Kooza could well be it.
Batman and Catwoman Cash
Will there ever be a time when they run out of new ways of building slots around Batman? Of course not, which for fans of DC comics is of course nothing but a good thing. Once again, Playtech have come up with the goods in the form of yet another Batman slot, which in this instance also brings Catwoman along for the ride. It’s the usual story of five reels and 25 paylines, with spins starting from as little as 25p. It works a treat via desktop browsers and on mobile devices alike, there are two solid bonus features you’ll want to check out and of course…those potentially life-changing progressive jackpots!
Bearing a fair few similarities to Batman and the Joker Jewels, Batman and Catwoman Cash has been developed in the usual comic book style from top to bottom. It’s a very well-presented slot, featuring all the characters and iconic symbols you’d expect to see – Batman, Catwoman, Robin, helicopter, speedboat, Catwoman’s mask and whip, gold cats, Batman’s utility belt and more. It’s the Batman logo itself that could land you with the biggest normal play payout – five in a row being good for a generous 100-times your wager. This is also the wild symbol, which can take the place of any other symbol in the game apart from the scatters.
There’s a pink Bonus symbol that could do you a few favours if landed on the first and third reels. This will then open up the Cat Burglar Bonus feature, during which you’ll be asked to select a scatter to win a cash prize.
To access the Batman vs Catwoman Free Games feature, three pink Bonus symbols are needed on the first, third and fifth reels in any position. In this instance, you’ll start out with a 2X multiplier and be awarded anywhere from 7 to 25 free spins.
Along with the standard in-game bonus features, there are those four outstanding progressive jackpots to keep your fingers crossed for. There’s the Grand, Major, Minor and Mini jackpot, which despite being very tricky to nail have the potential to be well and truly life changing.
On the whole, there’s a lot to like about Batman and Catwoman Cash, in terms of both gameplay and special features alike. It’s not exactly bursting at the seams with ground-breaking stuff, but what it does, it does well.
