Sidewinder, a new slot game from Microgaming, has just gone live on September 12. It is available on both desktop and mobile gaming platforms of online casinos like Platinum Play, Gaming Club and Spin Palace. It has been developed exclusively for Microgaming licensees by Just For The Win.

Sidewinder uses the same slots engine as the recently released Rainbrew, but visually it is a totally different experience. Rainbrew has an Irish theme with somewhat ornately crafted graphics. Sidewinder uses simple but bold retro symbols like horseshoe, clover, 7, bar and bells along with playing card suits. These seem to flow on the screen against a dark background making for sleek gameplay on smartphones. Sidewinder starts of as a five reels and three rows online slot with 243 ways to win. The title feature, Sidewinder, expands the slot reel with horizontal wild reels that increase the player’s win potential by transforming the game up to 1125 ways to win.

The Sidewinder feature works in the following manner. A top wild symbol activates the top horizontal reel, increasing the number of ways to win to 576. Similarly, a bottom wild symbol triggers the bottom reel. Triggering both Sidewinder reels simultaneously will increase the ways to 1125. Landing three or more Sidewinder symbols in the base game triggers the free spins. Three symbols award six free spins and four symbols award ten free spins. In free spins, the Sidewinder feature is always active and the game is played with 1125 ways on every spin. Players can earn an extra free spin for each Sidewinder symbol that lands on the horizontal reels. If wild symbols land on the same position on both horizontal reels, they connect to create expanding wilds. If you are lucky enough to manage three wild reels then the wins will be spectacular.

David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, said, “Sidewinder is a game changing feature that enhances both wins and ways with horizontal wild reels to expand players’ chances of scoring wild rewards.” Tiger Holmgren Chief Product Officer at Just For The Win said, “Sidewinder is the first game in the Just For The Win Casino Suite range, a suite designed to give players a premium casino experience with vibrant graphics and thrilling features. Sidewinder is an action packed game that fits well into the casino style setting by delivering excitement and massive big win potential.”
