Games Global kickstarts 2024 with a bang with feature-filled title from PearFiction Studios™
Games Global and PearFiction Studios™ are starting 2024 by transporting prize-hungry players to the African Wilderness in 7,776 ways to win release 3 Lucky Hippos™.
Epitomising the unique style of game that players have become accustomed to from PearFiction Studios™, this vibrant safari-themed slot is set in front of a background of lush grasslands, acacia trees, and sprawling mountain ranges, presenting a colourful view of Africa.
With unique graphics, trademark animations and high-level production values, alongside an array of engaging features, this release provides a wonderfully immersive online gaming experience.
Offering potential wins of up to 5,000x the bet via a host of thrilling features, the game builds on the studio’s popular LockNWin™ mechanic with three bonus games, including Multiply LockNWin™, Jackpot LockNWin™, and Supreme LockNWin™.
Players need to be on the lookout for orange, yellow, and pink coins that are collected and eaten by the three hippos. Collecting these coloured coins triggers a LockNWin™ round where three respins are awarded and all symbols are removed except cash values, which locks to the reels when it lands.
A cash or jackpot coin resets the respin count back to three, and when they run out or the reels are full, the round ends. Each LockNWin™ can be triggered individually or in tandem with one another meaning seven LockNWin™ bonus games are available.
The game’s multiplier is activated by landing orange coins and can increase up to 10x the bet, and applies to cash collects, and multiplies any orange Hippo LockNWin™ round.
Split symbols can add up to three rows to the reel they land on which are carried over to the LockNWin™ features, where collecting Lotus symbols on each reel triggers all three LockNWin™ features. Lotus symbols can be accumulated over several spins.
PearFiction Studios’™ first release of 2024 follows on from 2023’s launches including Blazing Mammoth XL™, Chicken Night Fever™, and the award-winning Granny Vs Zombies™, with players set to enjoy a wild time on their journey to Africa.
Thierry Semoff, CEO and Founder at PearFiction Studios™, said:
