Microgaming Starts The New Year With A Bang With New Slot Gung Pow

The Isle Of Man software developer Microgaming has started the new year with a bang by releasing a new slot with a celebratory Chinese theme – Gung Pow.

The 5 reel, 243 different ways to win slot is the first cab off the rank for developer Microgaming, as they look to build upon an impressive 2014 which saw them release new and popular titles such as Game of Thrones and Jurassic Park.

The Gung Pow game looks to embrace both the Western and Chinese New Year (which will occur in February) by supporting a theme of celebration, utilising favoured items such as fireworks and crackers which are set within a red theme which has strong symbolism connotations in Chinese culture.

Additionally well-known items such as coins and lanterns are amongst those present in the slot along with an oriental themed soundtrack, giving the game an overall feeling of happiness and festivity.


Microgaming had a very strong 2014 and they are considered to be one of the leading software developers in the online slots industry.

They have not only developed storyline slots such as Avalon and Immortal Romance, but in particular have pursued license content which has led to the creation of titles such as Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, The Dark Knight Rises, and the afore mentioned Games of Thrones.

Gung Pow

Gung Pow is a 5 reel slot which offers the player 243 ways to potentially win.

The Coin Size comes in 8 variations with the maximum size being 1.00.

The game includes Free Spin, Multiplier and Scatter components, as well as the good old faithful Wild feature.

Perhaps the greatest motivator of all though for Gung Pow players is the chance to win 90,000 Coins, which certainly isn’t a bad incentive in our opinion.
