Red Tiger Gaming Slots At Kerching
If you aren't clued in on the different developers in the world of online gaming, it can be difficult to tell when two games are made by the same team. This is because the best providers are adept at creating quality, varied titles as they can utilize different mechanics and more. If a slots developer constantly chugs out the same theme, bonuses or graphical design, they’re not going to reach the same heights as those that innovate and change with the times. A great example of a group that does this is Red Tiger Gaming. They operate in many online casinos across both Asia and Europe, and the reasons for their global success are quite clear to see. They develop slots of the highest standard and, since many of those are on Kerching, we’ve collected the cream of the crop for your perusal in our Red Tiger Gaming slots blog.
The first slot we’re going to look at showcases the best of Red Tiger Gaming’s design and innovative mechanics. Thor’s Lightning is based on the mythological Norse God of Lightning, Thor, not the one you might have seen in the latest superhero movie. There's plenty of visual references to this theme too, like the snowy background with levitating, carved monoliths floating above them. Land a win and the symbols involved will be blown away by Lightning, and the bonus animations maintain this standard. The graphical highlight belongs to Thor himself, as he is fully rendered and makes multiple appearances on the reels. Thor's Lightning isn't just a pretty slot though, it also boasts a few cracking bonuses.
Let's start with the Cluster Paylines mechanic which, as you can probably guess, relates to the game's payline combinations. Instead of the usual system of landing specific ‘lines', winning combinations will come in the form of clusters. A win is comprised of five or more matching symbols, and the best bit about this feature is that those icons involved in the combination will be removed from the reels and new symbols will take their place, which can create new wins. There are also two random acting bonuses in the game, with the first known as Lightning Strikes, which will either remove all the low-value symbols from the game or make a random cluster of symbols match to form a win. The second is the Hammer Strike, which will nudge or remove one symbol, making a new win in the process.
There is also a Free Spins feature present, which is triggered by landing wins next to the centre block. There are actually two different rounds; Valhalla and Muspell. The former will occupy the reels with blank positions and Golden Shields, which will then lock for the duration of your spins. The shields will then reveal multipliers behind them, and the total is calculated before being applied to your payout. The Muspell round will take you to a new set of reels, 7x7 positions tall, with all of the low-value symbols removed, and may also trigger the Lava Shower or Lava Flow sub-bonuses. The former may remove all instances of a certain symbol while the latter will make certain ones match to form a win.
Another slot based on an ancient myth, though this time we’re going to China! Epic Journey takes inspiration from the old tale of the Journey to the West, which follows Su WuKong as he learns the art of Tao. It's an internationally famous story, and Red Tiger Gaming have tried to translate those thematic qualities into the slot. The reels are bordered by a golden gate, with a mystical, natural landscape depicted behind them. Some of the symbols are represented by characters from the myth too, with the whole illustration shown when they land fully stacked. Not only do the graphics relate to the theme perfectly, but they also look great too and never show signs of glitching. The game also provides engaging bonuses, so let’s have a look at those now.
First, there is the Epic Staff Bonus, which can randomly trigger during any point of your gameplay. The staff will fly onto the screen and grant one of three bonuses; nudge the reels up or down to form a new winning combination, a giant symbol will be added that will make a win or low-value symbols becoming high-value ones before a new calculation is made. After that comes the Gold bonus, which you must land three gold scatters to trigger. You will be taken to a screen with 10 pots on and will be prompted to pick one, revealing a multiplier or ending the round. If it is the former, you will be able to continue picking pots for better multipliers. Finally, there is the Journey feature, which serves as a cash trail minigame. You have to advance as far as possible, picking up prizes along the way, with the best being an 888x your stake multiplier. These mechanics can be quite rewarding and only add to Epic Journey’s qualities.
Reel King Mega
This title might seem a little out of place compared with the rest, but Reel King Mega is indeed a Red Tiger Gaming product. Originally though, it started as a physical fruit machine, so it actually predates the company and even Kerching! While it has since made the move online, it presents itself as a relic from the past. The flashy effects of the previous slots are nowhere to be found, with a practical approach to the user interface favoured instead.
It can be a little underwhelming when put side by side with the others; the background is a static picture of gold coins, the animations are kept to the bare minimum, and it clearly isn't trying to innovate on the graphics front. Because of this, if the aesthetic value of a slot is a big draw, this might not be for you. However, there is a reason Reel King Mega has remained popular for so long, and it's down to the gameplay.
The first bonus is a randomly triggered one, so it can occur at any point and is called the King's Crown. The King himself will descend onto the reels and bounce his crown. Any symbols it hits will be turned into wilds and a new calculation will be made. The other bonus in the game is the Reel King, which will trigger when all the reels have turned gold. A new reel set will be introduced that will contain between three and five reels. New symbols will replace the existing ones too, three to be precise, coloured blue, yellow and red. Landing these in trios will yield wins, though some combinations will offer bigger payouts. If you’re after a classic slot experience, you don’t get much more authentic than this.
This is one slot that certainly doesn’t scrimp on the visuals. Pirates’ Plenty is, unsurprisingly, a game all about pirates, so expect to see lots of shiny gold coins, ships and seafaring shenanigans. The reels are set in a captain's cabin and are filled with piles of treasure. It's dimly lit by lanterns that capture the theme well, and the animations are faultless, never stuttering or bugging out. This is especially true for the bonuses, which are quite intricate in their presentation. Take the captain, for example, this ghostly figure will show up during the free spins round, guarding a chest. He is illustrated flawlessly but adds a gameplay element too. Speaking of the bonuses, there are a few to get through.
First off, we have the Treasure Reel, which adds an extra reel to the board. To unlock it, you will have to fill up a meter by landing the map symbol and the Treasure Reel will stay in place as long as you are on your same bet level. Then we come to the Wild Ships bonus, which will only appear when the previous effect has been triggered. They can make whole reels turn wild and also potentially award multipliers of 2x, 3x or 5x. Another wild feature is next, as landing the Monkey symbol in any winning combination will prompt a re-spin with all the low-value symbols removed. The last of the bonuses is the Ocean Free Spin Round, which requires three scatters to trigger. This will grant 10 free spins and add a new symbol to the reels in the fore of the Ghost Captain. If you look to the side of the reels, you’ll see a chest with three locks on it. Landing the new icon will unlock one of these, and if you get rid of all three, a bonus of more spins and a low-value symbol turning wild will be applied.
