We’ve recently told you all there is to know about high volatility slots at online casinos (don’t worry, there won’t be a test!), let you in on the secret when you should play them and shared with you which NetEnt slots are the perfect representatives of this exciting high-variance club. This time, we’re going to present to you our choice of top 5 Microgaming slots with high variance and give you a sneak peek of all the features that make them worth your while.
Break da Bank Again Slot
If you’ve ever played any Microgaming slots, chances are you’ve given the Break da Bank Again slot a spin or fifteen. While it’s fairly simple in design for today’s standards, Break da Bank Again has remained one of the most frequently played online slots developed by Microgaming to this day and it’s not that difficult to see why.
For one, it’s easy to play and doesn’t distract you from the goal— that is, to win big. Two, Free Spins. No one can resist a good Free Spin feature and, with Break da Bank Again, you can win 25 Free Spins with a x5 multiplier. And three, high volatility. Basically, you never know what you’re gonna get with this slot—or when you’re gonna get it!—which adds to the excitement and poses a challenge for many a gambler.
The Thunderstruck slot is another one of Microgaming’s all-time beloved gems. As you may have guessed (or you already know), the slot features the god of thunder, who unsurprisingly acts as the game’s wild card. According to various Thunderstruck lovers, the feature that makes this slot worth your time is the Free Spin round without a doubt.
Once you get 3 Ram symbols, you’ll be given 15 Free Spins where all your wins are tripled. What’s even better is the fact that Free Spins can be re-triggered, followed by even more multipliers, which will definitely add spice to your entire online gambling experience.
Supe It Up Slot
Microgaming's action-packed 25-payline Super It Up slot is said to bring really high payouts, which isn’t really hard to imagine considering you can hit a jackpot of as many as 10,000 coins!
The Free Spin feature is always welcome and in this slot you can land 20, 25 or 30 Free Spins, during which all the wins are multiplied by x6. Plus, additional Free Spins can be re-triggered during the round and added to the remaining number of Free Spins.
Immortal Romance Slot
Years will probably go by and in all likelihood the Immortal Romance slot will still be as beloved as it was the day it was released. Initially, this vampire-themed Microgaming slot was praised for its stunning graphics and hauntingly beautiful and extremely catchy soundtrack, but over the years it’s also become known for its challenging bonus features and relatively high variance.
Depending on your preferences, you’ll claim that a certain Immortal Romance feature is by far superior, be it the Amber feature, Sarah, Troy or Michael. One thing is for sure—no one remains indifferent towards the slot’s captivating story and, even more so, the Wild Desire round, which is known to have made people rich in a matter of moments thanks to its incredible rewards.
Thunderstruck II Slot
Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? That’s because the Thunderstruck II slot is the less volatile younger brother of the original Thunderstruck slot. However, it can be argued that it is a much more advanced video slot for many reasons. For example, it features 243 ways to win and several exciting bonus games.
Speaking of bonus games, there are 4 different bonus rounds—the Valkyrie Bonus Game, the Loki Bonus Game, the Odin Bonus Game and the Thor Bonus Game. What’s the most attractive detail is the fact each of the rounds awards Free Spins and an extra bonus feature, any of which can bring you that long-desired big win.
