The first of these is Ultimate X Poker Triple Play, a multiple hand poker title played with three hands complete with optional Ultimate X bonus features. Next up is Ultimate X Poker Play, which is played with five hands, while Ultimate X Poker Ten Play brings ten-hand video poker action! We also have three new slots on offer.

Ultimate X Poker Triple Play Gameplay and Features

The first video poker title for today, Ultimate X Poker Triple Play is an update of the first "multiple hand poker" game from IGT. Ultimate X Poker games add multipliers to winning games, adding more excitement to the action. As the name suggests, Triple Play brings three hands at a time, all with a choice of Ultimate X features. The multipliers received for any winning hand depend on the game you are playing, with options such as Bonus Poker, Double Double Bonus or the best-known version of video poker, Jacks or Better, where wins start with a pair of Jacks. 

Ultimate X Poker Five Play Gameplay and Features

The next Ultimate X Poker title from IGT is the Five Play version. This brings 5 hands of video poker action with each play. You can hold any or all of the five face-up cards in the bottom by either pressing them or using the keyboard shortcuts, with held cards appearing face-up on all hands. Replacement cards are dealt from a separate deck for each hand, and winning hands are paid according to the paytable. Just like in Triple Play you can select from 9 Ultimate X options, which bring different multipliers for each winning hands! 

Ultimate X Poker Ten Play Gameplay and Features 

Are you ready to play video poker with 10 hands? Then check out IGT's Ultimate X Poker Ten Play! This indeed brings 10 hands of video poker with each play, together with Ultimate X bonus features. To enable the Ultimate X features simply press the Bonus button on the lower right-hand corner of the screen. This places a side bet equal to the main bet, and applies a multiplier whenever you win with a given hand. The multipliers vary according to your choice of game type, which include Jacks or Better, Bonus Poker, Deuces Wild and Joker Poker. 

Viking Raid Zone Gameplay and Features

The bold Norse warriors reach our screens in Viking Raid Zone! This Leander Games slot features 5 reels, each with a "Dynamic Ways" zone that changes size and position on each spin. This determines which of the symbols on the reels are active, bringing a variable number of paylines ranging from 243 to up to 3,125. Land a shield wild in a Dynamic Ways zone on a non-winning spin for a Shield Wall Respin. This has the wild turn gold and stick to the reels. Any new wilds landed will also turn sticky and gold, and respins will continue until you eventually get a win. Each respin also increases a round multiplier by +1, which applied to the final win. 

Cave of Fortune Gameplay and Features

Cave of Fortune is a BF Games slot that tells the tale of goblins mining deep underground in their search for treasure. It consists of 5 reels and 3 rows, allowing for a total of 30 fixed paylines. The reels hold special nitro symbols, which appear in single, double or triple form. Any of these landed adds their respective amount of points to the nitro counter on top of the reel. Fill the counter with 3 nitro points to turn the reel into a Persistent Wild for the next 3 spins. Turn all reels into Persistent Wilds simultaneously for a big prize worth 200x the stake. 

Safari Sam 2 Gameplay and Features

Betsoft brings the African explorer character Sam and his companion Pam back in Safari Sam 2, a 5-reel, 3-row sequel with a total of 50 paylines. Land a stack of 3 matching symbols on a reel for a 3-of-a-kind prize! This symbol stack will then collapse, allowing new symbols to fall in their place to potentially bring more wins. The compass is the wild, and any random spin might trigger a Call of the Wild feature that covers up to 4 reels with wilds. Keep an eye out on the acacia trees, as these are the scatters. Land 3 or more for a round of free spins where each spin will trigger the Call of the Wilds! (Please note this game is not available in the UK).
