New Microgaming Pokie Arriving Tomorrow March 21, 2017

A brand new online pokie from Microgaming called The Heat Is On will be arriving in New Zealand online casinos tomorrow, Wednesday 22nd March, 2017. This new pokie will be launched simultaneously across multiple platforms (Flash, download, Quickfire and mobile) and you will be able to play on this game in the free play demo mode or in the real money mode at numerous top-rated Kiwi online casinos such as Spin Palace Casino, Betway Casino, Platinum Play Casino, Ruby Fortune Casino, Gaming Club Casino, Royal Vegas Casino and Jackpot City Casino.

The Heat Is On online pokie is fairly similar to games like Racing for Pinks, 5 Reel Drive and Good To Go. It has a Fast Cars / Bank Heist / Cops & Robbers theme with 5 reels and 45 paylines and its wide betting range will cater to low rollers, mid rollers and high rollers alike. The Wild Symbols and the Scatter Symbols on this game can both appear Partially Stacked and this means that they can cover up to as many as two individual symbols positions on the reels.

There are two Wilds Symbols and these include the Cat Burglar Selina and Officer Jean from the Special Task Force and the Scatter Symbol is the Bank Symbol. The Wild Symbols can appear partially stacked on reels 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, but the Scatter Symbols can only ever appear stacked on reels 2 and 3. Wild Symbols will substitute all other symbols on the reels apart from the Scatter Symbols and three more Scatter Symbols showing up will instantly trigger the Free Spins Bonus.

The lowest number of Free Spins that you can initially win is 5 Free Spins, but the Partially Stacked Scatter Symbols can help trigger up to as many as 80 retriggerable Free Spins. This looks like a fun new online pokie and it’s definitely one that we can recommend checking out when you next visit any of our top-rated Microgaming online casinos from tomorrow onwards.

Speaking recently about the very latest pokies in March 2017 was the Games Publisher at Microgaming, David Reynolds. He said, “The Heat is On is a perfectly balanced game which combines a wild feature that provides players with a steady base game experience and a free spins feature that has explosive potential. There’s something for everyone in March’s game add on.”
