casino games software developers. They have made it to the headlines as one of the best developers for their exceptional games which have proven performance and game longevity for casino operators and players.

The company was established in 1999 when they started a platform that’s independent in content delivery. This has been their focus to this day where they focus on quality of the game content and innovation. They games are built with integrity and offer end to end support in all their services. With such kinds of principles they are able to offer longevity and maturity in the industry, as well as, a reputation to constantly deliver sustainable value.

The developers behind the development of the games do not only create content but also have technical skills and have diversified cultures which assist them in coming up with the range of themes the slot games at NextGen Gaming have.

Delivery of Unique Games

What makes a great game? This is the question that constantly runs across the minds of the developers at NextGen Gaming. If the answer to this question was simple; then it wouldn’t be fun for them!

The reason why NextGen Gaming has remained at the top is their ability to balance between fundamental development aspects and innovation. The success is attributed to NextGen’s developers’ experience and innovation. With the environment offered to the developers, they are able to push boundaries and make the best of their talents.

Balanced Creativity with Structure

The reason why most of NextGen’s Gaming slots are a hit is because they focus on the player’s enjoyment. At the end of the day they are expected to deliver the best to their partners and players. This is the reason they need to have the right structures in place to deliver these games in good time.

Proper assignments are assigned to the relevant departments and quality is assured. With such technicalities, balancing between creativity and proper business structures becomes hard a task. Artists are not tasked with the creativity aspect of the development process, there is a product team that is tasked with the work of thinking and developing the exciting ways to enhance and develop the player experience.

Partners get and end-to-end gaming deal

As a partner, you get time to interact with the developers at NextGen Gaming to achieve what you wish. They will have a team work with yours to achieve the targeted themes.

and Butterfly Staxx, NetEnt offers us a brand new video slot. This new slot is scheduled to be launched on 24th July. The slot’s theme has been drawn from the 20th century movies. Phantom of the Opera is a universal film that was created between 1920 and 1950 and it adopted the horror, suspense and science fiction genres. The Universal Monsters movies included The Mumy, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Wolf Man. Phantom of the Opera and Hunchback of Notre Dame where the first of the Monsters films by Universal and were both silent movies.

From the slot’s design, you will come across the opera musicals, and a theater backdrop that will give you masked phantoms, a pick and click game feature, as well as, a Chandelier Scatter Symbol. All these will be served with a haunting soundtrack which makes Phantom of the Opera a slot to watch out for.

Phantom of the Opera will have 5 reels, four rows and forty paylines which will be fixed. The paylines will pay both ways and there will be rewarding stacked symbols, a pick and click bonus game, random phantom re-spins, free spins and wild substitutions.

From the different reviews and rumors about the game, it might be a low-medium variance game with a return to player rate of 96.57% where you can get a maximum win of 4,000 coins on a single payline or twenty times your bet amount. This is a pretty good deal on the slot since it can lead to a win of as many as 160,000 coins or a win of 800 times your bet.

The bet amounts on this slot range from $0.2 to $200. The slot will be availed in the desktop and mobile devices versions and on almost all mobile OS platforms.

The symbols on the slot are represented by card symbols which represent the low paying symbols on the slot. Other symbols which pay medium level wins include a white pearl, yellow rose, re gem, a knife and a ring. There are top symbols which include the Phantom, and Christine.

Masked Phantom and Sticky Wilds

The Masked Phantom Re-Spin will be activated when the stacked Phantom symbol lands on the first ree and a stacked mask on the fifth one. During one of the respins, the mask symbol, the bonus stacked symbols and phantom symbols will change into wilds and stick on the reels.

Phantom Free Spins

These get activated after three Chandelier Scatters appear on the first, third and fifth reels. After they appear as described, the free spin feature comes to play. During this time, a chandelier will hang by the ropes above the reels and a piece of the rope will be cut each times a phantom symbol appear on the reels. When all the five reels are cut, the chandelier will fall closing the free spins session. Phantom symbols will also behave like wild symbols during the free spins. After a masked phantom icon appears on the reel and one of the rope’s part is cut, all the phantom symbols on the reels will become stacked masked phantom symbol on the upcoming spin and will remain stacked during the entire session.

Good Luck!

on the go. Butterfly Staxx Slot game is scheduled to be released on 21st June 2017. The first impression of the slot is available through the first video footage to the slot that has been released by Net Entertainment who are the developer to the slot. From the video, a lot of information can be derived from watching the video.

Butterfly Staxx is a unique slot which comes with 5 reels and forty paylines. You can place a bet on the reels for as little as 40p. The slot has a re-spin feature which is activated after a stack of butterflies is presented.

With the least bet you can pace being 40p, you can also place a bet of as much as £400 on a spin on this four row slot. You can play the slot on your desktop computers, as well as, mobile devices powered by Android, Windows or iOS.

When making your spins on the slot you will get immersed in a world of bright tropical flowers and fluttering butterflies. Symbols you will come across are playing card symbols like K, J, Q, and A. You will also come across theme influenced symbols like three tropical flowers and a shining staked butterfly.

There is a wild symbol in the game which appears anywhere on the reels to substitute other symbols apart from the scatter.

When you get an entire reel covered by stacked butterfly symbols, you will have the re-spin feature activated. When this happens, all the butterfly symbols will fly to the left part of the same row that’s not occupied by the butterfly symbols next to budding flowers. These symbols will remain into position until the feature comes to a close. The more the butterflies you get on the reels, the bigger your win will be; this can get up to a Mega Win.

The scatter symbols are represented by the purple flowers.

Getting a minimum of three scatters unlocks the bonus game. The number of spins will be determined by the scatter symbols you get. Three scatters will give you seven free spins but it is not yet clear how many spins more of these scatters earn you.

When the bonus game is active, all the symbols will be replaced by cocoons. As the game transforms into auto-mode for the free spins, the cocoons will burst giving rise to butterflies. The number of butterflies will be counted at the end of the session and converted into real money winnings.

From the video footage, we can say that Butterfly Staxx is a simple game which provides the player with a relaxed and soothing atmosphere. We can term Butterfly Staxx as a low variance slot. From each free spin during the bonus game, you can win as much as 120 times your stake. Getting full seven butterfly spins can make you win as much as 840 times your bet.

Good Luck!

When on the base game, it is possible to have the golden wild landing on the first reel fully stacked triggering the copy cats feature. The cat symbols on the second, third, fourth and fifth reels will turn into the same cat symbol as the one on the first reel. If the triggering cat is a wild, then all instances of the other cat symbols will be wilds.

appear at the Swedish Studio. With this new slot, be ready to come across amazing symbols and mysterious fairy surprise appearances, bonus games and exciting graphics and 3D animations that will keep you entertained on this new adventurous journey with Gretel & Hansel.

When Fairytale legends series of slots was first launched, it was clear that there were going to be many other slots that would follow. The first one was the red riding hood and has proven to be a preference for many slot lovers. Without doubt, this new slot series will be similar to NetEnt’s slots series of Motorhead, Guns N’Roses and Jimi Hendrix. This new slot Fairytale legends: Hansel & Gretel will be a hit and will soon be in NetEnt casinos.

If you were moved by bonus features like Beware the Wolf and Fairy Surprises from Red Riding Hood, then you should look forward to exciting features on this slot as well. Rumours have it that the fairy will be making an appearance in this slot and will be rewarding players with additional symbols, potential mega wins and wild symbols. We hope that NetEnt has more techniques op their sleeves and make this slot to be a little different from the Red Riding Hood slot.

One bonus that we are expecting is the hunt for coins kind of bonus game. This bonus can be presented as a story for Hansel & Gretel. These two can be strolling the forest to make for the perfect theme for this bonus round. It can be a dice kind of style board game or something new this is up for NetEnt to decide.

We hope that the slot’s layout will be 5 reels, three rows and 20 paylines. The bet size may range from $0.20 to $100. Without doubt, the slot will have state of art graphics and animations that will make you play the slot the whole day. Compared to other NetEnt slot games, the RTP rate should be more than 97%. This is a good rate to have the game as a medium variance. It might be of a higher variance and be in the leagues of Motorhead.

If you are a fan of Net Entertainment slot games, then you must be excited to have this new slot launched. NetEnt has done a great job and they have exciting games lined up for 2017. Some of these games include Scruffy Duck and Jungle Spirit: Call of the Wild. All these games are featuring entertaining games mechanisms and 3D animations. With these kinds of features, you are sure that there is potential to win great when you play the slot.

Hansel & Gretel is set to be released on 24th April 2017. Visit your NetEnt casino of choice on this day and enjoy the beauty of this new slot.

Good Luck!
