Multiplayer Slot from Microgaming

June 20th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

Industry-leading online gaming software developer, Microgaming, recently released its second multiplayer slot game at its casinos. “No Worries” is the newest multiplayer offering. The first multiplayer slot game, “Multiplayer Wheel of Wealth” had resounding success. No Worries features an Australian-theme and is based on the single player No Worries online slot game.

How the Multiplayer Feature Works

The built-in multiplayer feature groups players into virtual rooms based on desired wagering amounts. Each digital room can hold up to 30 players. Each player in the room only has visual access to their own online slot game but has the ability to chat with others in the room. As players wager on the game, they earn points. Once at least three points are earned, the total sum will be transferred to the leader board with a ranking.

Aussie Windmill Pump Bonus

These positions are important for the Aussie Windmill Pump bonus round which is triggered in specified intervals. The bonus round features an 18 segment wheel displaying five different Australian animals. Each animal is representative of a percentage of the jackpot with a minimum of 10 percent and maximum 100 percent. The top ten players on the leader board will share the jackpot based on their position.

No Worries Game Information

No Worries boasts 20 paylines and allows wagering designations between $0.01 and $20 per spin. The background for the game is set in the Australian Outback. The majority of symbols on the reels are of indigenous Australian animals comically crafted. These include Wallaby, Platypus, Koala, Kookaburra, Wombat and Tasmanian devil.

The scatter symbol is represented by the boomerang and the No Worries logo acts as the wild symbol. High value card letters are crafter in an Aboriginal style. Most characters on the reels become animated when part of a winning combination. For instance, the Kookaburra plays the didgeridoo.  The consistent background music is upbeat and fun which compliments the game.

No Worries Availability

No Worries Multiplayer is available at all Microgaming-powered online casinos such as Spin Palace, River Belle, All Jackpots and Royal Vegas. To access the game at any of these casinos simply navigate to the “Multiplayer and Tournaments” section in the Game Lobby. Then players must access the Multiplayer tab and double-click on the game icon.

No Worries Multiplayer is a much more exciting game than the original. Multiplayer slot game action is a growing trend amongst online casinos and subsequent games. In the near future, many older slot games will be converted to multiplayer.

Two New X-Men Slot Games to Entice First Class X-Men Fans

June 16th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

Recently released, X-Men: First Class was an immediate hit. The movie is scheduled to be released in several other countries in the middle of June 2011. X-Men: First Class is the prequel to the previously released X-Men movies. As a result, two Marvel X-Men branded online slot games have been released by Cryptologic and Playtech, two leading gaming software developers.

Lack of X-Men Promotion

Despite the release of their respective slot games, no casino powered by either software developer has announced an X-Men promotion.

Cryptologic X-Men Slot

The first to be released was the Cryptologic X-Men slot. The symbols consist mostly of characters from X-Men Legend. These include, Xavier, Storm, Cyclops, Jean Grey, Wolverine, Night Crawler, Gambit and Rogue. The highlight of the game is the bonus game which is a battle between the selected superhero and a villain. The character whose life meter is depleted first loses.

If the super hero loses, the player receives a consolation prize equal to the bet that activated the game. If the super hero wins, the player will receive the award equivalent to the amount of life left on the meter. The game is networked into the Marvel Slots progressive jackpot. Typically the higher the wagers the better chance of hitting. The Cryptologic version of X-Men is available at InterCasino and VIP Casino.

Playtech X-Men Slot

The Playtech variant of X-Men is a much more updated version of the series. The game features the same characters on the reels as the Cryptologic version only with much better animation. Each of the characters displays their super powers. Also, the X feature pays five times the total bet when super hero icons occupy all five positions on reels 2-4 when forming an X.

Free Spins Round

The free spins feature boasts a Heroes mode and Villains mode. The game begins in Heroes mode but when Magneto is displayed on the third reel, the game switches to Villains mode. However, when Xavier appears on the third reels it switches back to Heroes mode. The Playtech version is linked to the four-level Marvel Mystery Jackpot.

Both games are extremely exciting and accurate to the movie series. However, the updated Playtech version is more fun, with better payouts and graphics. Therefore, if the choice must be made to select between the two, choose the Playtech version.

Las Vegas Themed Slot Games

June 2nd, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

There are currently several online slot games that boast a Las Vegas-theme. The latest addition is the Hot Roller online slot game from Vegas Technology. Set with the Las Vegas Strip as the background, the title of the game is displayed with a neon sign. The symbols on the reels transport the player into the casino. These symbols include:

  • Stacks of chips
  • Welcome drink
  • Lady hot roller
  • Pair of dice
  • High value card symbols

Although a slot game, the represented table game is craps so the most important symbols are the lady hot roller and a pair of dice. The lad shooter represents the wild symbol which yields the highest payout of 10,000 coins. This character also doubles all payouts when it acts as a wild symbol. The animation of the lady hot roller is impressive as she kisses the dice for good luck prior to taking the shot.

The pair of dice feature hot flames and act as the scatter symbol. Aside from the lady hot roller icon, this is the only other symbol that showcases animation. When two of more scatter symbols appear on the reels, scatter payouts are given. These payouts are multiplied by the total bet to convert them to casino credits.

Three or more of these symbols activates the free spins bonus round. This game begins when the layer rolls a single white die and two red dice. The white die awards the free spins multiplier which ranges from 1x to 6x. The values on the red dice are then multiplied to give the total number of free spins which varies from 1 to 36. This round can be retriggered during play but the multiplier and number of free spins cannot be determined for a second time.

Vegas Technology also recently launched a slot game entitled, “Vegas Party”, which features the same Vegas-theme. The symbols on the reels are fairly similar to those in Hot Roller. Vegas Party also features a free spins bonus round but it is much easier.

Hot Roller went live at all Vegas Technology-powered online casinos simultaneously. The most popular include, Go Casino, Grand Vegas and Online Vegas. These two Vegas-style online slot games appear to be exciting and innovative additions to the Vegas Technology portfolio of games. Stop by any one of the large number of Vegas Technology online casinos to try your luck in a glamorous environment.

Rival Gaming Fuses New Concept to Create a Bingo-Themed Slot Game

May 30th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

Rival Gaming has developed a new concept of fusing two different gambling games into one; a bingo-themed online slot game. Although players are unable to actually play a competitive game of bingo, they will still be able to enjoy the atmosphere of a bingo hall in new slot game, Five Reel Bingo.

The introductory clip takes players through the experiences found at a bingo hall such as the casual chatter. The announcer then calls a number at which the clip shows an old man holding a bingo marker, anxiously awaiting the next number announcement. The announcer calls the next number prompting an elderly woman to stand up and yell “Bingo.”

The symbols on the reels in the slot game stem from the game of Bingo itself. These icons include:

  • Bingo market
  • Ball dispenser
  • Announcer
  • Squeak rubber doll
  • Bingo cards
  • The old lady
  • The old man
  • Star

The old lady from the introductory clip is representative of the jackpot symbol since she won. The highest paying jackpot in the game is 2,500 coins. The old man, also from the clip, acts as the scatter symbol. Three of these icons and the player is awarded five free spins, four and the player is given ten free spins and five will grant the player twenty free spins. Also, payouts during this round are tripled. The star is the wild symbol which only appears on reels 1, 3 and 5.

Five Reel Bingo also offers an unusual bonus game in which each reel is designated with a specific scatter symbol letter that spells BINGO. If the word BINGO appears across all five reels, the player can engage in a regular game of Bingo. In the bonus game version, numbers are called and marked off a standard bingo card. There are a variety of Bingo patterns, each with a different payout. The player will receive the payout of the pattern that initially forms.

All horizontal and vertical lines pay 3,000 coins while a diagonal line pays 5,000 coins, four corners equates to 7,000 coins and a horizontal/vertical combination equals 10,000 coins. The game is available for play at regular and accelerated speeds.

Five Reel Bingo is currently available at all Rival Gaming casinos like RubyRoyal and Sloto’ Cash. This game is an exciting and innovative take on the standard, popular game of Bingo. All aspects of the normal game are present to improve the experience.

New Multiway Slots from WagerWorks

May 20th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

Almost all slot games (land-based and online) function with a single payout table. As a result, some slot games are more attractive to players than others. Leading online gaming software developer, WagerWorks, recently released several slot games which utilize two different payout tables for every spin. The name of this innovative feature is Multiway. Two popular slot games that have integrated this feature are Treasures of Troy and White Orchid.

Independent Spinning on the Reels

These games are uniquely structured in that they are five reel slot games with only four rows across each reel which spins as independent reels. In normal slot games, the reels spin simultaneously. Independent spinning allows for the same symbol to appear in many positions across the reel which results in frequent payouts.

The 40 Payline Payout table

The default setting in the game is a 40 payline payout table. Therefore, participants are able to wager up to 40 paylines and five coins per payline. WagerWorks has referred to this as the Bet Multiplier. When players wager in this mode, they are only able to use the default payout table which pays when three or more of the same symbols appear from left to right on the reels.

The Special Multiway Payout Table

Those who have activated all 40 paylines can double the bet which will trigger the special Multiway payout table. The game pays when 4 or 5 of the same symbols appear on any position on the reels. For instance, if, according to the payout table, 5 of the same symbols pays 100 and the same symbol appears twice on the first reel, three times on the third reel and once on all other reels, the Multiway payout would be 600 (2x3x100).

Seeing the Details

Payouts from the default and special tables are independent of one other then added together. For more complicated payouts, WagerWorks has added an area where the details are presented line-by-line. Furthermore, all Multiway slot games feature a free spins bonus round which uses the default table.

Multiway slot games are currently only available at Virgin Casino. However, due to the popularity of this feature, it is likely WagerWorks will expand and share the wealth. This is an extremely innovative idea that is sure to catch on at other online gamine software developers. Stop by Virgin Casino today to try your luck at multiple payout tables.

To win a percentage of that pot, players must reveal three Jackpot symbols. For those wagering GBP 0.20, you will receive 10 percent of the jackpot. As the wagers are increased, the percentage won from the jackpot will also increase. For the highest wager of GBP 2, the player will be awarded the full jackpot amount.

Additional Scratch Card Games

Realtime Gaming Mice Dice Online Slot Game

May 13th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

Realtime Gaming recently release a new online slot game that entails mice taking over Las Vegas. Aptly entitled, “Mice Dice”, sets the reels inside a casino with beautiful chandeliers and other appropriate décor. Amongst the class of the background is a variety of cheesy graphics.

The symbols are well-crafted and appropriately selected to represent the theme of the game. These icons include:

  • Male mouse
  • Female mouse
  • Cocktail with a piece of cheese
  • Clockwork toy limousine
  • High value card symbols
  • Catsino
  • Dice

The male and female mice are the main characters of the game and are well-dressed for the occasion. The high value card symbols are elegantly decorated with a gold border and studded with gemstones. To remain consistent with the comic theme of the game, pieces of cheese are scattered around the high value cards.

The scatter symbol is represented by the casino, aptly named Catsino. Three or more of these icons on the reels feature scattered payouts. Five Catsino symbols provide an immediate payout of 250 coins multiplied by the total original bet. This is then converted to casino credits.

The pair of dice is the wild symbol. These are held by suspicious-looking mice craps shooters. When this icon is part of a winning combination, the craps-playing mice roll the dice across the table. This is a spectacular piece of animation. Five wild symbols in a payline equates to the highest jackpot of 2,500 coins.

Additionally, the dice symbol activates the free spins bonus round which is triggered with two or more symbols that appear in order across the reels. At this point, all dice symbols roll and award the number of free spins based on their total sum. There is also a roll of an extra die that awards free spins with a multiplier up to 12. This round can be retriggered.

Furthermore, there are many innovative features found during the gameplay. For instance, the Win-Win feature, found in many other Realtime Gaming slot games, compensates players who have not won a free spins game. Those that do not win anything in this bonus game are awarded 50 times the bet. Those winning low amounts are granted compensation as per a pay table.

Mice Dice is a new and innovative online slot game that should be played by any slot enthusiast. The graphics are excellent, the payouts are high and the in-game features allow for other chances to win.
