Microgaming Launches Tweethearts, Its 15th Title Developed by JFTW
- September 18, 2019 By Oliver Young -
Microgaming has announced the launch of its newest slot developed by Just For The Win, Tweethearts. This is the third release for the month of September, following Aurora Wilds and the much-anticipated Banana Odyssey.
Tweethearts is a 17-payline slot that tells you the story of lovebirds, portrayed with vivid colours and sleek graphics. You will enjoy several special features, which will take you to the most rewarding payouts.
Join the Birds in a Loving Adventure
Microgaming has released many slots developed by Just For The Win, titles like Tiki Vikings, which have proved to be quite popular among slots players. In fact, Tweethearts marks the fifteenth product that resulted from this deal.
The slot was designed with crisp, modern graphics which portray birds who are madly in love, with multiple colours. You will see that the reels are transparent, in a branch-made frame. On the reels, you will notice pink, red, purple, blue and green parrots, in addition to feather-decorated playing card symbols. You have the beautiful-looking Wild on a heart-filled background, as well as the Lucky Wild that present the birds’ nest with a little white egg in it. You will also see the Free Spins Scatter on a flower background, and the game’s logo as one of the two highest-paying symbols.
As far as the gameplay goes, the first thing you will notice as you load the game, is that there are Double Symbols. This is a cool feature that gives you doubled payouts if you see a Double Symbol landing on the reels. This symbol will land on Double positions and will count as two single symbols when you calculate your wins. The Double positions are the middle positions in each column, which are active in the base game and the bonus game. In fact, more of them can be unlocked during the bonus game. All symbols, except for the Lucky Wild, can appear as Double Symbols.
The Regular Wild or the Single Wild plays its usual role of a substitute, but so does the Double Wild. The only difference is that the Double Wild substitutes for Double Symbols, and the Regular for Single Symbols. The Lucky Wild, on the other hand, only appears during the bonus game. There is a Random Wild feature that adds 2 to 6 Wild symbols on the reels, on any position and at random.
And of course, you also have the Free Spins bonus game, which is triggered by 5 or more Free Spins Scatters. For 5 Scatters, you get 10 Free Spins, and you get 1 extra for each additional Scatter. Plus, for each Lucky Wild you land during the Free Spins, you get 1 extra Free Spin, with the Lucky Wild transforming into a Double position for the rest of the feature.
The Statements by Microgaming and JFTW
Microgaming’s Director of Global Operations James Buchanan introduced the game as the 15th developed by JFTW, which combined colourful graphics and serene soundtrack to create a charismatic and unique slot. The Double Lucky Line and the Random Wilds feature added another element of excitement to the gameplay, Buchanan explained, adding that the title was set to entice slots players of any kind.
JFTW’s CEO Johan Persson, on the other hand, said that the action never stopped in the tropical love bird themed slot, with an array of Wilds driving the action throughout. Thanks to these features, Persson explained, players would enjoy a 2,500x the stake payout, so everyone at JFTW was waiting eagerly for players to experience the visuals and sounds of the lovebirds’ jungle paradise.
