Two of the most exciting new online pokies of 2017 are both set to arrive in casinos over the coming weeks. There’s the new Halloween pokie from Microgaming and also the new Planet of the Apes pokie from NetEnt, both of which were first announced back in February. The new Halloween pokie from Microgaming looks set to arrive on or around Wednesday 4th October and the new Planet of the Apes pokie from NetEnt will be arriving on Monday 23rd October.
“Planet of the Apes is one of the largest film franchises in the world never to have been applied to gaming before. With such a rich history, the brand resonates with everyone that has grown up with the films, and it will fit perfectly with NetEnt’s wide and divers player base,” said the Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, Simon Hammon.
He then finished by saying, “We are thrilled to have signed the franchise, and can’t wait to offer the game to players later in the year.” All of these comments were taken directly from the official NetEnt website. There are two sets of reels on this new branded pokie including the Rise set of reels on the left hand side of the game window and the Dawn set of reels on the opposite side, both of which have 5 reels and 20 paylines.
With the exciting Dual Reels format, the game manages to combine elements from the two blockbuster movies – Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014). You will be playing to win some really big cash prizes in the Rise and Dawn Free Spins Bonus Rounds and you can also look forward to the Rise and Dawn Bonus features. The main special symbols to keep an eye out for include the Wild Symbols, Stacked Wild Symbols, Scatter Symbols and Bonus Symbols and the game has a huge fixed coin jackpot to play for.
The new Halloween pokie from Microgaming has 5 reels and 50 paylines and this game also has a Free Spins Bonus, as well as a Boogeyman Bonus and Wandering Wheels. You will be able to launch the new NetEnt pokie instantly in your web browser, no download required, and you’ll be able to launch the new Microgaming pokie either instantly in your web browser or from within the Microgaming casino download client. Both games will be launched simultaneously on desktop and on mobile on their respective release dates.

The Games Publisher at Microgaming, David Reynolds, also commented on their latest branded pokie.
He said, “Halloween is a true classic and set the standard for modern horror films. It was immeasurably influential in the slasher genre of movies, so it is great to be working with such an iconic and respected brand.” He then went on to say, “Embracing all the elements of what made the movie such a success, our games team are busy developing a slot for release later in the year.” These exact comments came from the official Microgaming website.
