Microgaming Launches New Slot: The Great Albini

Microgaming has launched an exclusive new slot game called The Great Albini in conjunction with Foxium—an Estonian company that specialises behind the storytelling in slot games.

Foxium prides itself on being creative experts “mixing compelling themes and captivating narratives with innovative gameplay mechanics and 3D graphics” and their new release The Great Albini is no different.

A master illusionist takes centre stage with his assistant Lily and appears in a puff of purple smoke as players are transported to a bygone era where magic comes alive. “Vintage visuals” and “vibrant symbols” such as The Great Albini himself, high cards and a yellow canary are interactive based on your gameplay and will stun players.

“The Great Albini is a glittering mix of gratifying gameplay, stunningly realised visuals and a stirring soundtrack,” David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming said in the press release. “Payers will feel the glow of the limelight as they are immersed in The Great Albini, with the opportunity to win a staggering 4,000x their bet. The addition of the Bonus Box by Foxium alongside the superb respin and potentially very rewarding free spin features makes for an exciting player experience.”

Bringing The Magic To Life

The Great Albini is a five-reel, 25 payline slot. Extras features have been packed on such as free spins, wild reels and a Mystery Box Respin. The Great Albini is also accompanied by a soundtrack to immerse you in the world of mystic and magic.

In a magical transformation when a 3×3 Free Spins bonus symbol appears across reels 2, 3 and 4 The Great Albini changes the grid to a 5×6 format—increasing the number of paylines to 50.

An additional Bonus Box feature will give players the option to purchase 8, 10 or 12 free spins at any point.

When three Mystery Box symbols appear players will magically be given three respins to try to lock another mystery box. When players fill up the reel set with mystery boxes or run out of respins The Great Albini illusionist will then reveal one symbol that will be inside each mystery box.

But watch out, the Great Albini’s assistant Lily will be appearing and disappearing throughout the game play at random.

When Lily appears, players will get 12 free spins. When she vanishes players will see a “Lily Wild” symbol appear on one of the three centre reels at random, which will give players a 2x multiplier on all wins. For every winning combination a respin will occur. Known as the Lily feature, it can be triggered within any free spins.

“Our latest exclusive game release through Microgaming is set to enchant and entertain players, who will join us on the absorbing adventures of The Great Albini and Lily,” said Åke André, CEO of Foxium. “We are confident that the combination of cinematic visuals and exciting gameplay packed with thrilling and innovative features will prove a hit with a wide variety of audiences.”

This time last year Microgaming launched Playboy™ Gold. It became available in more than 20 languages and featured Free Spins, Respins, Jumbo Blocks and a special Match Bonus game.
