New Midyear Games at Trident
By staff
Romance, fun owls and upgraded progressives add to player enjoyment

June 28, 2004 - Kahnawake, Canada - Trident group casinos King Neptune’s ( and Trident Lounge ( are once again among the first quality online operations to offer five stunning new games from Microgaming.

Spokesperson Scott Gaines says that regular game upgrades and new releases based on the latest world gambling research is part of Trident's plan to offer Internet players a continual stream of fresh, exciting and appealing games.

Leading the new releases is the romance themed Secret Admirer, a 5 reel, 9 pay line, 10 coin video slot, with a Wild symbol, an adjacent reel Scatter symbol, Free Spin Super Hold bonus function and a double your money Gamble Screen.

One look at the richly coloured romantic graphics suggests that this game is particularly appealing to women gamblers, although the high action level and feature-rich character will make it attractive to a wider audience, too.

The overarching theme is romance, and the evocative icons include the glittering fire of diamond rings, rich red roses, flirtatious Venetian masks, hearts and just a whiff of expensive perfume.

Secret Admirer boasts many new and unique features that set a fresh benchmark for excitement and action in video slots.

By way of contrast a new video slot branded What A Hoot presents an amusing owl theme - make sure you look out for the party-animal 'Hooters' owl, the Joker owl and the Birthday owl for a chuckle! The platform is a 5 reel, 9 line, 1 coin game, with a Wild and a Scatter symbol to spice up the action with a medium to high hit rate.

This game has something for everyone, with a betting range from 1 cent right through to $5, so if you're at the top end of the range the max bet can give you a very generous 5 000 coins or $25 000 jackpot if Lady Luck (and the owls) smile on you. Next highest payout is a useful 800 coins.

If you enjoyed Big Top slots this fun game will appeal as well because it is based on a similar but slightly more elaborate format with all-new quality graphics and great digital sound.

Previous game releases have suggested that the 11 strong Jackpot Madness progressives stable is being steadily upgraded and two old favorites have received the treatment in the latest announcement. The 3 reel progressive slots Lotsaloot and Fruit Fiesta have given thousands of players plenty of fun and profit and whilst remaining in service will now be joined by linked video slot upgrades.

Fresh and brilliant graphics and high speed, feature-rich action on a five reel, fifteen line platform with wild and scatter symbols will appeal to Fiesta's many fans. The Fruit Fiesta symbol is still wild, with 5 of them on the 15th Pay line winning the major progressive jackpot. But there are more ways to win with this game than the 14 additional pay lines. The Scatter symbols for example, have a high hit frequency and more generous than usual payouts.

Lotsaloot progressive fans are going to love the upgraded 5 reel video slot version of their favorite game, and there are 25 pay lines giving more chances to hit that big jackpot or scoop the second highest win of 10 000 coins - all for a maximum bet of only $2.50.

Players will be comfortable with the familiar sharp and colorful graphics on this game that remain true to the ever popular original Lotsaloot presentation. The Lotsaloot symbol is still wild, with 5 possibilities on the 25th pay line that could reward some lucky player with a network-wide progressive jackpot. There are more ways to win with this game than on the original in that the new Lotsaloot has one of the highest hit rates in the Microgaming video slot range.

Final game in the current new releases is the latest in a lineup of six 10 X Power Poker games. Deuces Wild Ten Times Power Poker enables gamblers to play ten hands of VP at once, with a different 52 card pack for each hand.

There's plenty of flexibility with this game and players can wager between 1 to 5 coins per hand, or up to fifty coins at a time in denominations ranging from as little as a cent to two dollars.

With top jackpots of US $ 80 000 possible the new game has super potential for some truly spectacular wins.

Behind the razor sharp, high quality graphics and fast gameplay of all the new offerings is Viper, Microgaming's state-of-art gambling software that empowers the player with a host of optional assists, features and analytical information to enhance the gambling experience. No other software on the market offers as wide a range of facilities.

Viper's autohold feature can hold the best cards on a mathematical basis awaiting the player decision, and the analyser tables give guidance on current odds and cover permutations to help gamblers make the right decision - a facility not found elsewhere either in land or online operations. The Viper autoplay capability adds yet another new dimension to these exciting low margin-high volume games, and players can set up their own 'stop' budgets by win amount, lose amount or credit balance.

To celebrate the launch of these exciting new games, for a period of five days following the launch, 15 random bonuses will be awarded daily ($20 x 5 and $10 x 10) to players who purchase and play $50 or more that day on the new games. Additionally, double Trident Points will be awarded throughout the promotion period.
