Play’n GO Releases New Title — Shimmering Woods

Mar 31, 2021 Irina Sazonova
If you’re familiar with Play’n GO’s work, you know the provider is appreciated for taking classic themes, styles, mechanics, and formats and making them its own. This is the case with the newest release as well. Shimmering Woods is a dynamic payways slot game with an entertaining mechanic, which allows the players to experience new versions of the beloved format.
What makes Play’n GO stand out from its competition is its take on classic slot themes, such as Norse mythology or ancient Egypt. Even though Play’n GO bases some of its titles on themes like these, it still manages to offer a unique take, especially when it comes to grid slots. The same can be said about payways slots, too, even about the already-seen ones like Coils of Cash, Frozen Gems, and Perfect Gems.

Similarly, Shimmering Woods stands out with 5×3 reels and splitting symbols that increase the number of payways. An in-game symbol is chosen as a splitting symbol before each spin, which leads to them being instantly split once landing on the reels. As a result, the game goes from a standard 243 to an astounding number of 7,776 payways.


To make the game even more attractive, Play’n GO has included a progressive free spins feature, where players can reach re-triggers and multiple splitting symbols throughout the game. These additions make Shimmering Woods one of the more innovative and unique recently released games.

On this topic, Play’n GO’s CEO, Johan Törnqvist, has said that the provider believes innovative takes on current concepts are just as important as new ideas. He has added that reinventing the wheel is not necessary when the masses already love the content. In Törnqvist’s opinion, it’s not about repeating the same things by using different package. Instead, his company aims to introduce a fresh perspective within acclaimed frameworks.
