One of the biggest names in the online gaming industry, Microgaming, has proudly announced its latest video slot developed by Just For The Win game studio.

Titled Sidewinder, the new release features 5-reel 3-row layout, with up to 243 different ways to win in the main game.

To further help you grab rewarding prizes, the game offers free spins, expanding Wilds and the Sidewinder feature. The latter will expand the slot reel with horizontal Wild reels that increase the number of ways to win to a staggering 1,125!

A Fantastic Title Feature

The Sidewinder feature can be triggered in two ways: by Wild symbols or through free spins. A Wild on top will activate the top horizontal reel, while the bottom Wild will trigger the corresponding reel, while both reels allow additional Wild symbols to land.

Trigger just one of the horizontal reels to increase the number of ways to win to 576, while activating both of them will even further boost players’ chances of scoring a big prize since it will increase the ways to 1,125!

A minimum of three Sidewinder symbols is needed to trigger the game’s Free Spins round, while the number of the spins you win will depend on the number of icons used to trigger this feature. Three Sidewinder symbols equal 6 free spins, while four of these icons will give 10 spins.

The Sidewinder feature is always active in the Free Spin round, and while the round is active, players can earn an additional spin for each Sidewinder symbol that finds its place on the horizontal reels.

Increasing Players’ Chances of Grabbing Huge Prizes

When Wilds land on the same position on both horizontal reels, they will create expanding Wilds, which can bring amazing cash prizes.

Commenting on the launch of this game, David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming said Sidewinder was a game-changing feature that enhanced both wins and ways with horizontal wild reels to expand players’ chances of scoring wild rewards.

He added this was an engaging new release developed by Just For The Win, with a straightforward mechanic that was guaranteed to level up gameplay for new and experienced players

Sidewinder hit the market on September 12 and can be found on any online casino powered by Microgaming.
