Sought-after software provider gets players in the spirit for carnival season with new both-ways-pay Premium release

With carnival season almost upon us, hot-shot software provider Swintt is inviting players to limber up and feel the rhythm in Continental Princess – a brand-new both-ways-pay slot that lets them shimmy and sway their way to Full Table wins of up to 1,000x their stake.

Boasting five reels and 10 fixed paylines, Continental Princess is the latest release in Swintt’s ever-expanding line-up of Premium games; a collection of titles that channels the bright graphics and straightforward gameplay of land-based slots and fuses them with a range of modern bonus features.

Taking place to a backdrop of lush South American jungle, Continental Princess features an entirely unique line-up of symbols including brightly-coloured gems, an ornate serpent and a golden jaguar. Additional princess wild symbols appear exclusively on the three central reels, with these special icons being key to triggering both the game’s main bonus feature and the maximum 1,000x prize multiplier.

Should players be lucky enough to land one of these unique wild symbols during any base game spin, it will expand to fill the entire reel as a special animation is triggered that sees the princess showing off her samba skills. As this happens, new payline combinations will be calculated both from left-to-right and right-to-left, with a free re-spin being awarded once all current winnings have been added.

While this re-spin takes place, the princess wild symbol will remain locked in place, with any subsequent wilds repeating the process and triggering a further re-spin. In this manner, it’s possible for players to collect a maximum of three re-spins with all three of the central reels becoming wild, with this significantly improving the odds of them landing one of game’s coveted Full Table payouts.

A Full Table payout is awarded whenever one symbol occupies all 15 reel spaces, so with princess symbols covering the central reels and substituting for all regular base game icons, players will only need to land full columns of matching symbols on reels 1 and 5 to trigger one of these incredible wins.

As a final incentive to get players dancing, all winnings collected during the base game or re-spins can also be gambled in Swintt’s popular Risk feature. Activated by clicking the flashing symbol to the left of the reels after any winning spin, players will be prompted to guess the colour or suit of a hidden playing card, with correct picks doubling or quadrupling the value of their current prize respectively.

David Mann, Chief Commercial Officer at Swintt, said: “With carnival season about to get into full swing, we’re challenging players to show off their moves in our exciting new Continental Princess slot.

“Featuring wins that pay both from left-to-right and right-to-left plus a hugely rewarding wild re-spin feature, the game looks certain to be another popular addition to our Premium collection and we hope players will enjoy taking it for a spin at any of our online casino partners this month.”
