Betsoft Gaming goes back to the future with latest release Miles Bellhouse and the Gears of Time

| By Guy Parsons
Bellhouse is back and his experiments with time travel could lead players to a fortune

Betsoft Gaming is renowned for its stunning, cinema-standard graphics and animation. Latest release Miles Bellhouse and the Gears of Time takes these standards to a new level in this hugely colourful, high-speed and non-stop video slot. Visually challenging and rewarding in equal measures, the game showcases Steampunk themes and iterations of the dynamic scientist and his sidekick robot, Gizmo, at different ages. The action moves quickly but randomly: past, present, future and back again – all can give you the chance to stay one jump ahead for untold payout potential.

Betsoft Gaming fans will know Miles from 2017’s release Miles Bellhouse and the Curious Machine. The 5×5 cluster payout sequel is slated for release on 5 November 2020. In it, our eponymous inventor/scientist, complete with Einstein hair and excellent tailoring, has learned how to twist time across his supersized grid, located in a subterranean, Victorian gothic warehouse.

Timepieces, aviator goggles, cogs and wheels – even Miles and Gizmo – are symbols and fly around the grid. Bronze-coloured tubes emit blasts of steam, piercing whistles and blazing lights. ‘Brain waves’ literally flash across the screen to land on the squares, while an electrifying soundtrack adds to the excitement. This is game cinematography like never before. Pre-launch reviews are already raving about the new Miles Bellhouse sequel. From the exuberance of the theme to its fantastic features, this spectacular release is guaranteed to become an instant classic.

Using Betsoft’s renowned technical expertise, Miles Bellhouse and the Gears of Time delivers 5×5 reels where players can form winning clusters of symbols in a unique cluster pays system. With one or more clusters on selected positions, you raise the chance of triggering the time travelling features – past, present and future.

Past will replay the last spin and trigger a cascade of non-matching symbols to improve your odds with 12 free spins. 

Present awards a multiplier of 2x – 20x your stake and 10 free spins. 

Future picks an existing symbol that is currently present on the grid and triggers six free spins when 10 symbols of the same type are added. 

Increase your wins with time-charged wilds, when the wild will substitute for any other symbol in the game and make forming clusters easier. In addition to the in-game cascades and bonuses, this mid to high volatility cascading reels game gives up to 1,084x your stake.

Commenting on the new title, Kai Botha, marketing manager, Betsoft Gaming, said: “Betsoft Gaming is renowned for the quality of its releases and Miles Bellhouse and the Gears of Time is no exception. The sequel is world-class and is sure to be a hit with players. From gamification, theme, features and mechanics, the game shows that Betsoft continues to deliver to both our clients and players.”

Scheduled for release on 5 November, Miles Bellhouse and the Gears of Time will join Betsoft’s constantly growing, award-winning portfolio of desktop and mobile video slots.
