lots supplier Wazdan is offering a new Asian-themed slot with its latest Midnight in Tokyo.
The supplier’s new game is a 5-reel, 243+ ways to win escapade combining a number of the developer’s most popular features in the latest installment in its Hold the Jackpot series, with players being able to win up to 3,000x their stake.
Two types of Wild Splitters are present in the game, both of which increase the number of ways to win using Wazdan’s splitter mechanic. Wild symbols not only substitute for other symbols, but they also split the adjoining symbols into 2 if there are two adjacent symbols or into 3 if there is one adjacent symbol. Ninja Cats slice symbols on either side of them, while Kung-Fu Cats split symbols above and below.
The Geisha Cat symbol acts as a Bonus symbol, where three of them landing on the reels will trigger the Bonus Jackpot Game. Utilizing Wazdan’s Hold the Jackpot mechanic, players are transported to a 15-slot mini-grid in a 5×3 layout as they search for further Bonus and Moon symbols. Players are initially granted three re-spins, which reset every time a new symbol lands on the reels.
The Moon symbol in this round will contain a cash value when it lands, with all of these being totaled up when the round ends before being awarded to players. The Geisha Cat, on the other hand, awards Jackpots, with five symbols granting the Major Jackpot of 150x and six Bonus symbols triggering the Grand Jackpot of 1,000x player’s bet. Since Jackpots, just like cats, act independently, after hitting Major Jackpot players can still score the Grand Jackpot and have been awarded both of these prizes, instead of getting just the highest one.
Midnight In Tokyo also contains an array of Wazdan’s customizable features including adjustable volatility, speed, and the Buy Feature, allowing players to enter the Hold the Jackpot bonus round at any time.
The Chief Commercial Officer at Wazdan Andrzej Hyla, said: “Midnight in Tokyo sees our players invited to explore the landscape of one of the world’s most famous cities while its feline citizens are up to mischief. With the Wild Splitters adding a unique twist to the reels and our popular Hold the Jackpot bonus round, Midnight in Tokyo is one of our most engaging titles yet.”
