Pragmatic Play is enjoying something of a golden spell at the moment, with a handful of new games all making their debut in the few weeks since the turn of the New Year. Ancient Egypt Classic, Mustang Gold and Triple Dragons have all gone live, and at the start of next month, another new title will be unveiled.
Making its debut on February 7 is Treasure Horse. Like many top slots available at this moment in time, the new game is Asian-themed. However, unlike many of its 5-reel counterparts, there is something out there about the gaming engine in this soon-to-be-released online slot machine.
What to Expect from Treasure Horse
Pragmatic Play’s new Treasure Horse slot features just three reels, and yet there are 18 paylines scattered across its reels. None of those paylines can be adjusted either, which will leave players looking at minimum stakes of 18p a spin. It may not be the cheapest classic slot-style game to debut, but it is by no means the costliest.
The game will also dish out a non-progressive jackpot which is worth around 1,000x a player’s stake. Any prize with this figure for wagers as petite as those is undoubtedly going to raise more than a few eyebrows at online casinos.
Original and Engaging Gameplay
Few players would expect too much in the way of special features in any 3-reel slot. Nonetheless, the unique and original gameplay available in Treasure Horse does offer more than its fair share of surprises. There are wilds which can substitute for all icons barring scatters, and those scatters can trigger a free spin bonus if one appears on each of the game’s three reels simultaneously.
In the bonus, players are looking at getting just eight free games, although a win on any of them will be met with 2x to 6x multipliers, dished out by a new, fourth reel. Extra spins are also available when additional scatters appear.
Take the Reins a Few Days Earlier
Officially, Treasure Horse is set to debut on February 7, the final day of the ICE convention. However, a handful of casinos that offer slots powered by Pragmatic Play are already carrying the new release as an exclusive timed game. Popping into those casinos will cut down the waiting time for any player who wants to try their hand at this innovative and barmy new title.
