As March begins, you can relax and enjoy a selection slot releases that have been flooding the CasinoBeats email inbox over the past week. These include Play’n Go‘s mythological madness and PopOK Gaming‘s prostitution parlay. Habanero‘s St Patrick’s Day celebration and more.
Pandora’s Box of Evil-Play’n GO
Play’n GO’s latest monster-filled slots release has broken Zeus’s command not to open the box. It uses a 5×4 reel layout with 20-paylines, and a maximum win up to x6,000 for the player’s stake.
George Olekszy Head of Game Retention, Play’n GO said that Pandora’s Box of Evil was a fun slot based on Greek mythology. Players who choose their games by theme and feature set will enjoy it tremendously.
“Unlocking the main feature by landing Pandora’s Box on reels triggers an chain reaction of mystery symbols that really enhances the entertainment.”
All symbols except the scatters and spirit symbols are replaced by mystery wilds. They award payouts between x2 to x8 depending upon the number of wilds in a winning combination.
These wilds may also be accompanied by multipliers that can be applied to any win they are a part of. These multiplier values may be x2, 3, x4 and x5 respectively. Two multiplier wins will increase the win by adding their multiplier values together.
When the spirit of hope symbols are activated, any mystery symbols or scatters will be locked in place for the next respin.
You can trigger the free spins feature by landing one, two, or three scatters during the same spin. This will give you two, five, or eight additional spins.
Black Booze – PopOK Gaming
PopOK Gaming’s latest slot, which was released in the 1920s during prohibition, revolves around the black-market booze trade. It has a 5×3 reel layout that offers 243 ways of winning and four progressive jackpot prizes. This game is medium volatile with a RTP of 96.17 percent.
If three or more bonus whiskey crates land on reels 1, 3, and 5, they will be activated, giving you nine free spins.
Silver badges from the police can also be displayed. They display monetary values and can be won if they land in a winning combination. You can also get gold badges in the free spins mode, which has higher values.
Wild text symbols may also appear on reels 2, 3, 4, 4 and 5, substituting all other symbols except scatters and badges.
The free spins feature allows you to collect gold badge values above the reels without any winning combinations.
The silver badges that land on reels can be combined with the gold values above the reels to form combinations, which award the player their total value.
Three scatters in the same spin will trigger the feature again, with three additional spins.
Randomly, the jackpot game mode can be activated at any time. Players are required to select a number boxes that have hidden jackpot diamonds. After players have chosen four identical jackpot diamonds they will be awarded the prizes.
A randomly activated super spin feature may also be available. This allows for a large number of silver badges to appear on the reels, in an effort to create a winning payline.
Rainbow Mania- Habanero
Habanero’s latest Irish-themed Slot Release is a 5×3 reel, 3-reel slot featuring 17 paylines and bonus features such as expanded wilds or free spins.
Toni Karapetrov Head of Corporate Communications at Habanero commented: “We’re always glad to revisit Ireland and give our fans another mesmerizing title that revolves around rainbows, leprechauns, and hidden treasures.
“The new release promises to be a captivating experience with our world-class math driving the title’s engaging audio-visuals. We are eager for players to download the new release and make St. Patrick’s Day even more special.
Wild horseshoes, leprechauns, and bonus scatter symbols can be substituted for any other symbols than cash pots and bonuses scatter.
Reels one through five can have cash pot symbols. One cash pot symbol will transform the middle reel into an expanded wild leprechaun, and two will transform reels two, three, and four into expanded wilds.
This cash pot feature doubles the number of possible wins by allowing you to make wins from both reels. A paytable symbol will be revealed in the cash pot’s place by the reels respining.
You can also find scatter text symbols, which will trigger 13, 33, or 133 free spins, depending on whether three, four, or five of them land on the same spin.
Winterberries 2 – Yggdrasil
Yggdrasil has released a new freezing-cold slot game. It features an icy-fruit theme and a 5×3 reelboard with 20 paylines. The maximum win is x10,000. The RTP is 96 percent. This game is high-volatility.
Stuart McCarthy is Head of Product & Programmes at Yggdrasil. He stated that “We are thrilled to launch this sequel, which we launched in 2016, and still has fans all over the world. Winterberries 2 brings the game to a new level, with respins, multipliers, and free spins, in a stunning frozen creation.
“We want to introduce new concepts to players and having each winning spin result in Respin is an excellent way to continue player engagement and deliver potentially large wins for them in this fruity, new hit.”
The ice cubes will freeze winning symbols throughout the game. These symbols will remain sticky on the reels once they have been frozen. If identical symbols drop in, the respin occurs again and also becomes frozen on reels.
There are several multipliers that sit above each reel. They range from x1 up to x32. These multipliers can be highlighted by filling entire reels of identical frozen symbols. They are active and can be applied to any win that is made from said symbols.
These multiplier values can be doubled during the free spins mode. Special blue honeybee scatters may also appear to boost the win potential of the bonus game mode.

Lloyd Butler is the CEO of Live 5. He stated that “Arctic Moon Lock & Respin transports players to a vast frozen tundra, where wild animals roaming the reels.” These beasts can be controlled with wilds, free spins, and Lock & Respin.
“This feature is particularly important because it breaks the big-win Ice and will keep players on the edge their seats as the Moon symbols land and lock, and the reels continue to respin.”
Ice spins scatters can be found on reels 1, 3, and 5, and trigger five free spins if they land on the same spin.
The free spins feature allows the middle reels to merge into massive 3×3 symbols. This increases the potential win rate of the free spins mode, which acts as nine symbols simultaneously.

The Lock & ReSpin feature takes players to a blank reel set of 5×7 inches where they can only see the triggering moon symbols.
Three spins are awarded to players to land as many symbols of the moon as possible on the reels. Each symbol that falls in will reset the number to three.
