Each online casino games supplier has its own special tricks that make it unique. Microgaming has one of the biggest online slot portfolios and has devised several special features that it uses from time to time. The best of these have been selected and are being described below. The online slots with these features can be played at Microgaming online casinos like Royal Vegas and All Slots.

The Expanding Symbols feature was introduced by Microgaming in Ariana video slot. In this feature any of the high paying symbols can appear stacked on the first reel. When this happens, the same symbol appearing on the other reels will automatically get stacked, provided this will lead to a winning combination. If you are lucky then all 15 spots in the 5x3 reels structure can end up with the same symbol. This is only the first part of the Expanding Symbols feature. The feature becomes more powerful during the free spins. A full stack on the first reel expands the corresponding symbol on other reels as usual. But it also expands the wild symbol. So you can get wild reels.

Mystery Symbols is another popular Microgaming online slot feature. It was first used in the twin Titans of the Sun video slots Theia and Hyperion. There is a mystery symbol defined in the payout table. It does not award any payouts. It can appear stacked across all reels. When the reels stop spinning in any base game spin, all the mystery symbols will transform into the same randomly chosen symbol except the wild and scatter symbols. This will increase the chance of getting winning combinations with that symbol. As with the earlier feature, the Mystery Symbols feature becomes more lucrative in the free spins. It may transform into the wild symbol as well.

The Rolling Reels feature has been used by Microgaming more often. One of the first online slots with this feature was Break away. When symbols appear in winning combinations the payouts are awarded. Then these symbols are replaced by new ones. If new winning combinations appear on the reels then the process repeats itself. All this happens in a single spin. The Multiplier Trail gets added to the Rolling Reels feature during the free spins. Consecutive wins in the same free spin are paid out with increasing multipliers. The first win is paid with 1x multiplier. Then the multiplier increases as follows: 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and 10x.
