Quickspin releases second game with tumble mechanics plus completely unique feature
Stockholm, 11th of February 2020 – Swedish slot specialist Quickspin, a Playtech Group company, has just released their second game of the year – Wild Cauldron.
Wild Cauldron combines a cosy and colourful theme with exciting game mechanics, high volatility, and the chance to win up to 21,000 x your bet. This is Quickspin’s second game with tumble mechanics, following the success of their rector game Golden Glyph.
In addition to expanding reels, a Free Spins Bonus and a Multiplier, Wild Cauldron boasts a completely unique feature: Locking Symbol Tumble. A traditional avalanche game will blow out all the winning symbols and keep the non-winning ones, whereas this game does the opposite – it keeps the winning symbols and removes the non-winning ones.
Hit a win in this game and the symbols just keep on coming, stacking higher and higher like a self-playing piano. If you unlock the full reel, you get 48 symbols on the screen at the same time. The game starts off with a 4×6 grid and 4,096 bet ways, which can expand all the way up to 8×6 with 262,144 bet ways.
Travis Grabau, Producer: “We wanted to create a game for the kind of players who are well acquainted with tumbling reel mechanics. And we wanted to combine these mechanics with a warm and cosy theme, so we’ve created a colourful witch’s ‘workshop’. We’ve also added a new and previously unheard-of feature to this slot. This will give players a completely new experience, where they get to watch a regular win build up to become a potentially really big win!”
