Dragon Dancing to Celebrate Lunar New Year

Festival 10K WAYS game is a highly-thematic and captivating product that will end up bringing you great times, especially if you love the dragon lore in Chinese culture and folklore. The Bonus Respins feature though is there to flesh out this magic into measurable results produced across the reels.

To start the bonus feature, all you need to do is get lucky enough to get six or more scatter symbols on the reels – pretty much any row or line will work to trigger this bonus. You can trigger more respins once you are in the bonus level, too. Scatter symbols are sticky, which means that you can keep raking in wins if fortune indeed smiles on you.

Another great bit about this slot is the Fortune Bonus prizes that can be won by players. There are five distinct types of jackpots to enjoy as well, including the Mini, Minor, Major, Grand, and not least – 10K bonus prize. These will pay out 10x, 50x, 250x, 2000x, and 10,000x of your bet respectively in rewards.

The game is marked by ReelPlay’s proprietary feature, and it joins the YG Masters family, to enjoy an even bigger pull with iGaming audiences. ReelPlay has already made waves in the iGaming market with the release of ARR! 10K Ways and BANANAZ 10K WAYS, with features proving an immediate success.

Company Reception and What to Expect Next

FESTIVAL 10K WAYS is powered by the GATI technology developed by Yggdrasil, which helps games come regulation-ready and preconfigured for specific markets and their needs. The standardized development toolkit has helped slash development times in general and drive cutting-edge innovation.

Yggdrasil head of product & programs Stuart McCarthy has welcomed the opportunity to introduce this new game on the market, arguing that it offered “good fortune” to those players wishing to immerse themselves in the beautifully Asian-themed game.

With up to 10,000 ways to win and a cascading variety of animations and game features, ReelPlay’s 10K Ways is indeed a one-of-its-kind title for payers to enjoy.

The new game was also welcomed by ReelPlay CEO David Johnson who said that the latest arrival in the 10K Ways franchise was a worthwhile continuation of the library and one that has become a recognizable and trusted solution by players and operators.
