As 2021 got underway, iSoftBet was one of the online casino slot game developers with numerous new titles on the table. The company released Mighty Stallion Hold & Win, Neptune’s Fortune Megaways, and Book of Cai Shen. Those games covered a range of themes and features.

Just a few months later, iSoftBet has added numerous other titles as additions to its 2021 game library. But there is no slowing down, as they are preparing to release the new Gem Roulette and Moriarty Megaways, adding more diversity and catering to more player interest.

Let’s look at the new games of the past few months and the two that will be released soon.

Bounty Belles: February 2021

The women of the Wild West were outlaws, though not as frequently as men. But that didn’t stop iSoftBet from putting them on “wanted” posters for Bounty Belles, complete with jackpots on their heads as bounties.

  • 5 reels, 3-5 rows
  • 243 to 1,125 paylines
  • 96% RTP
  • 10,000x max win
  • $0.20 min bet – $20 max bet
  • High volatility

This game offers Wilds and a Wild Bounty feature, the latter triggered by Wilds on the first and second reels. Those bounties then become available on the third, fourth, and fifth reels via the Expanding Reels. There are dollar amounts on some symbols, as well as minor (30x bet), major (50x bet), and grand (100x bet) jackpots.

Three or more Bonus symbols trigger free spins: three symbols garnering 10 spins, four symbols for 12 spins, and five symbols for 15 free spins. This bonus can retrigger during the free spins play. And during those spins, players see cards that make up the Dead Man’s Draw – a take on the Dead Man’s Hand of Wild Bill Hickock fame. Players can win multipliers of up to 10x for the free spin wins.

Aztec Gold Extra Gold Megaways: February 2021

If the game name sounds familiar, it’s because Aztec Gold was previously released by iSoftBet. This version, however, is upgraded to include the Megaways and Hold & Win mechanics. Those features expanded everything from paylines to bonus rounds, all in the familiar hidden treasure troves of the Aztecs.

  • 6 reels, 7 rows
  • 117,649 betways
  • 96% RTP
  • 20,000x max win
  • $0.20 min bet – $20 max bet
  • High volatility

Any win in the new Aztec Gold triggers a Cascading Win. All winning paylines vanish to be replaced with more symbols, and the process continues until there are no more wins. Any spin can also randomly trigger one of several features. Montezuma can appear to trigger Aztec Gold Cash Respins or simply a big win. Max Megaways brightens the background and prompts the reels to offer Megaways.

Players will look for Sun Disk Scatters to trigger the Aztec Gold Cash Respins feature. This uses the Hold & Win to hold the discs and spin the other symbols in the hopes of adding more discs. Any or all of the jackpots may also appear during this feature, with mini, major, and mega jackpots corresponding to the current bet. Sun disc values are also multiplied by the total bet for the final payout.

There is also the option for players to use the Aztec Bet. It costs 100x or 150x the bet but guarantees a Max Megaways Aztec Gold Cash Respins round with the maximum payouts possible. Further, players can turn on the Extra Gold feature for an extra 25% bet. This increases the chance for bonus rounds and reduces the number of Scatters necessary for Respins.

Wishing Wheel: March 2021

Developers went with an Irish theme for this one, in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. The light-hearted game offers light colors and a spring sky, nothing too bright or flashy. That doesn’t mean the gold doesn’t sparkle, though, as the “luck of the Irish” theme was in full effect with everything from four-leaf clovers to pots of gold.

  • 5 reels, 3 rows
  • 20 paylines
  • 96% RTP
  • 5,000x max win
  • $0.20 min bet – $20 max bet
  • Medium volatility

The Bonus symbol is the Wishing Wheel, which can land on the first, third, and fifth reels and trigger – you guessed it – the Wishing Wheel. That wheel then spins to award up to 15 free spins, which will accompany at least one major feature. Any spin can also randomly trigger the wheel.

The Mystery Pipe is one of those features, which replaces 6-12 positions on the grid with the same symbol. Rainbow Wilds can turn 5-10 positions into Wilds, replacing all other symbols except the Bonus. The wheel may also land on the Mega Reels, which turns either reels 1-3 or 2-4 into all mega symbols. Shamrock Sync turns 2-3 reels in the same combinations, while the Super Shamrock Sync does it for 3-5 reels. And the Rainbow Reels turns up to three reels into Stacked Wilds, with Super Rainbow Reels doing it for 3-5 reels. Finally, Ultra Reels turns the entire grid into ultra symbols.

Each wheel spin also picks a Shamrock Multiplier, which applies a 2x-10x multiplier to all free spins.

Super Reel Spin It Hot: March 2021

This unique game rolled out to several online casinos before opening to the entire market, including casinos catering to Aussie slots players. The symbols are traditional, like diamonds and fruits, bells and sevens, but the slot is anything but “the usual.” It plays in portrait mode and features 10 Super Reels across the top of the regular reels, providing ample possibilities with every spin.

  • 5-10 reels, 3 rows
  • 20 paylines
  • 96% RTP
  • 9,000x max win
  • $0.20 min bet – $20 max bet
  • Medium volatility

There are some predictable features, like the Scatter symbols that trigger free spins. Three of them award eight spins, four trigger 12 spins, and five maxes out at 15 free spins. During the bonus round, Spin It Hot symbols appear more frequently, and jackpot values increase.

Speaking of jackpots, there are three in the game: mini at 10x the bet, major at 25x, and mega at 50x the bet. During free spins, they can increase to as much as 250x for the mini, 500x for the major, and 1000x for the mega.

And speaking of the Spin It Hot feature, it begins when a spin offers six or more Bonus symbols. This opens up the grid to Spin It Hot Respins, and the prizes scrolling across the top of the screen are finally up for grabs. In addition to the jackpot options, there are other prizes for Gold symbols. It gets a bit complicated, but there are a lot of ways to win during the Spin It Hot feature.

Sea of Riches: April 2021

iSoftBet developers take players to the high seas in Sea of Riches, where a storm creates havoc but brings players to a sunny beach. The pirates then search for the many treasures available on the unique board that offers increasing game levels.

  • 6 reels, 6 rows
  • Cluster pays
  • 96% RTP
  • $0.20 min bet – $20 max bet
  • Medium volatility

The big component of the game is the Treasure Map, which likens the action to that of a board game in some respects. The goal is to collect pieces of the Treasure Map, and every bottle symbol adds a piece. When the 25 pieces finish the map, players move to the next level, of which there are four in total.

There are different features for each level. They trigger randomly on losing spins to add Wilds to the reels. The Wild Kraken emerges with its tentacles to turn 5-10 symbols into Wilds. The Wild Storm is a tornado that swirls across the reels to turn 3-9 symbols wild. A Wild Whale splashes his tail to create a pattern of 5 Wilds. And finally, the Wild Ghostship can appear to add 2-5 Wild Multipliers of up to 5x.

Along the way, each spin charges the Captain’s Compass, which triggers different modifiers. Compass modifiers include the Rolling Rum for 1-3 barrels to change 3-6 symbols and Musket Mayhem for 5-12 symbols removed from the reels. The Cannon Blast fires 1-3 cannonballs to remove an entire row of symbols, and the Swarm O’Parrots allows the parrots to remove 10-15 symbols.

The Ruby Megaways: May 2021

This is another revamp of a classic game. The Ruby is a traditional slot with symbols like lucky sevens, diamonds, bars and bells. But it brings the Megaways mechanic to the older version of the game to update it with much more action.

  • 6 reels, 7-8 rows
  • 117,649 paylines
  • 11% RTP
  • 37,500x max win
  • $0.20 min bet – $20 max bet
  • Medium volatility

iSoftBet has yet to release the demo game for The Ruby Megaways on its website, but it is due soon. This slot offers cascading reels, mystery symbols, and 12-27 free spins, depending upon the number of Ruby Bonus symbols on a spin.

The free spins bonus round creates an unlimited multiplier tracker, which increases with each cascade. There is also the chance to continue adding more free spins during that bonus play. Players who want immediate access to the bonus round can use the Ruby Bet to the left of the grid to buy that opportunity for 75x the current bet.

Pearl Legend: May 2021 

For an entirely different theme, developers created Pearl Legend with an Asian theme in an ancient structure. Of course, the Hold & Win feature is the main attraction here, as combined with the pearls, it takes the excitement to another level.

  • 5 reels, 3-6 rows
  • 20 paylines
  • 96% RTP
  • 8,230x max win
  • $0.20 min bet – $20 max bet
  • Medium volatility

Wilds and Pearls are the most lucrative symbols, the former substituting for anything but pearls and gems, and the latter triggering the Pearl Legend Respins with five or more on the grid. This is where the Hold & Win feature comes into play, as all dollar symbols hold, and three respins add more. With every additional sticky pearl, the respins reset at three.

Gems may also appear during the Respins, and three of them trigger a Reel Booster. Blue gems unlock another three rows; green ones boost the value of all symbols on the board. Red ones award an extra respin, and purple ones increase the multiplier level for the bonus game from 2x up to 10x. Players can track their gems at the top of the screen.

There are also Pearl Legend modifiers. For example, the red ball turns 3-5 symbols into Wilds. The blue one transforms symbols into pearls, and the golden dragon upgrades symbols.

Gem Roulette: May 2021         

For players who love table games, iSoftBet’s new take on the classic roulette might be of interest. Gem Roulette is an online roulette variation with special gems and features. The added side bets may be the biggest attraction for players.

The minimum bet is $0.10 and maximum is $10, so this is not the game for high rollers.

Most roulette wheels have a 0 or 00 spot – or both – but Gem Roulette puts gems in those places. The Ruby Bonus offers the chance to win up to 500 chips, and the opportunity is double that with the Diamond Bonus. Hitting either of those symbols triggers the Bonus Wheel, which awards at least 10 chips but has great potential.

Moriarty Megaways: May 2021

This is a take on Sherlock Holmes, set in the old London streets, complete with fog and streetlights leading the way. And the Megaways feature, as licensed from Big Time Gaming, creates more than 100,000 ways to win. To top it off, Sherlock asks a lot of questions, offering some unique entertainment.

  • 6 reels, 3-7 rows
  • 117,649 paylines
  • 96% RTP
  • 37,500x max win
  • $0.20 min bet – $20 max bet
  • High volatility

As in any iSoftBet game, Bonus symbols trigger free spins. Three of them offer 15 free spins, four offer 20 spins, five garner 25 spins, and six maxes out at 30 spins. Wilds are present but a bit different, only appearing in the second through fifth reels and in the very top row. That row is called the Top Tracker, which adds a symbol and extra payout opportunity for the second through fifth reels.

Cascading wins replaces winning symbols with new ones, though they move from right to left on the Top Tracker. Also on any spin, the game may trigger Sherlock’s Max Megaways. This starts with a 1x multiplier and increases once for every cascading win. Conversely, any spin may trigger Watson’s Mystery Symbols, which also carry the increasing multiplier.

This game also offers the Moriarty Bet, a possibility for the player to buy a set of free spins for 150x the current bet.
