Monopoly Slot game from WagerWorks

August 11th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

Industry-leading online gaming software developer, WagerWorks, recently released another Monopoly slot game. This is the fifth installment of the brand entitled, “You’re in the Money or Monopoly.” The previous versions of the game include:

  • Monopoly with Pass GO Bonus
  • Monopoly Multiplier
  • Monopoly Here and Now
  • MegaJackpots Monopoly

With each new Monopoly variant comes innovative features and the newest version is no exception. For instance, the Mystery Wild Bonus can be randomly triggered following each spin. Also, Mr. Monopoly awards players with fully wild reels which can be maxed out at all five. Once the reels fully wild reels are activated, payouts will be given.

Any fan of Monopoly will enjoy the Board Bonus because it allows them to partake in the actual board game. When the game is activated, players are first given three chances to roll the dice. The coin begins at “Go” and moves based on the number of spaces per dice roll. The type of square will determine the payout. Landing on property will award the player a single spin on a mini slot machine.

The payouts on the mini slot machines increase with the value of the property on the board. Landing on a utility property grants the player another roll of the dice. Participants are paid based on the sum of the dice. Additionally, landing on Community Chest or Chance gives players the option to draw a random card from that deck, similar to the actual game.

Within each corresponding deck there are different benefits. For instance, the railroad advances the player to the next railroad square and gives him an additional roll of the dice. This allows for the opportunity to land on higher valued property and be given larger payouts. Those who pass GO are automatically given 200 times the original bet.

The graphics in the game are much improved over the previous versions. The wild symbol is represented by Mr. Monopoly. Other symbols include the green houses, red hotels, railroad icons, waterworks, electric company, hat, car and dog. The Board Bonus game can be triggered by the dice character.

The game is 30 paylines of pure fun. Those who are avid monopoly players or who grew up loving the game, you will thoroughly enjoy the newest version of Monopoly from WagerWorks who has really brought the game to life in this latest installment.

An Overview of Summer Ease Slot Game

August 4th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

Rival Gaming has developed a new slot game to capture the summer season and celebrate all the associated activities during those months. “Summer Ease” is an online slot game that features all summer vacationing activities during the introductory clip. These same activities are then presented in the game as symbols on the reels which include:

  • Grill
  • Picnic basket
  • Snorkel
  • Balls
  • Camp
  • Flowers Fishing reel
  • Sandcastle

Accompanying the well-crafted icons are plenty of animation with peppy music. For instance, a fish can be caught in the fishing reel and the grill is lifted to show that fish. Meanwhile the flower dance in the wind. The best animation in the game is the sandcastle which is demolished by ball.

In addition to the standard symbols are four special icons including the deck chair, bicycle, car and boat. The deck chair is the jackpot symbol awarding 8,888 coins. Typically jackpots offered by Rival Gaming slot games pay 5,000 coins. However, since the game celebrates the summer season, the company has decided to up the ante.

The bicycle is the scatter symbol which boasts two advantages. The first is the scatter payouts which are multiplied by the total bet which converts them to credits. If five bicycle icons appear on any of the reels, the player is awarded 100 coins. The other benefit is the scatter symbol activates the free spins round. Three bicycle symbols award 10 free spins, four equates to 20 free spins and five equals 75 free spins.

The car character represents the wild symbol which automatically replaces all other icons with the exception of the scatter and bonus figures. This character is only available on the first, third and fifth reels as a wild icon. When it appears, the entire reel is converted to help the player win.

Finally, the boat acts as the bonus symbol. Three or more triggers the bonus game which takes place in the high seas where the player must race the boat and avoid buoys. All bonus credits are awarded at the end of the round.

Summer Ease allows players to wager up to 10 coins per payline and features a total of 20 paylines. The betting denomination spans from $0.01 to $0.25. Summer Ease recently went live at all Rival Gaming-powered online casinos. This game is an excellent way to celebrate the activities summer has to offer while making a little extra money.

Back Nine Looks to Capitalize on Prior Success of Hole in Won

July 11th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

Developed by Rival Gaming, Back Nine is a golf-themed online slot game that is the sequel to the popular Hole in Won. The progress of software technology between the two installments of games is quite apparent. The symbols crafted in the Back nine are larger, more detailed and attractive. When the reels spin the symbols become translucent revealing a sand trap on a golf course in the background.

The introductory clip features a golfer hitting a hole-in-one which proceeds to introduce many of the symbols. All symbols boast some type of animation throughout the game.

As expected, the symbols are all representative of various aspects of golf. These include:

  • Trophy
  • Flag
  • Male golfer
  • Female golfer
  • Golf cart
  • Golf bag
  • Golf clubs
  • Back Nine logo

The symbol for the jackpot is a trophy which pays out 750 coins when five are aligned on an active payline. The flag represents the wild symbols which only appears on the second, third and fourth reels. The symbol then expands to fill an entire reel. After the expansion, the animation is depicted by a golfer driving the ball across a fairway.

The bonus symbol is represented by the male golfer. When three or more appear on the reels, the bonus game is activated. Unlike many other bonus rounds, this is a skill-based game. The first time the bonus game is activated the player is transported to the first hole. After, the software automatically takes the player to the next hole until nine are completed.

Also, a score sheet is maintained for all completed holes. The sheet displays the hole number, par, number of strokes taken and the amount above or below par. For every hole completed, players receive bonus credits based on the number of strokes taken to complete the hole. If the player hits a hole-in-one, the top payout is awarded. The amount of payouts is also reflected by the number of scatter symbols acquired in the spin.

Back Nine is a 15 payline i-slot game that allows players to wager a maximum of five coins per payline. The coin designation ranges from $0.01 to $1.00 for a total bet of $45. Back Nine is one of the best golf-themed online slot games currently available. Rival Gaming did not spare any detail to give players the golfing experience of their dreams.

An Overview of Eagle’s Wings Online Slot Game

June 22nd, 2011  |  Published in Inrodution

Launched by Microgaming, Eagle’s Wings slot game is a visually appealing masterpiece. The game begins with an introductory clip that displays the flight of an eagle over snow capped mountains, coniferous forests and reflective lakes. The clip ends with a close up of the eagle. An underlying theme is the eagle’s relationship with nature and American Indians.

Important Symbols

There are two important eagle symbols in the game: a close up of the bird and the bird in flight. Other thematic symbols include eagle’s fledgling from their nest and the salmon symbol. Additionally, there are high value characters in the game from Ace to Jack; each of which carries an eagle wing feather in an Indian head dress style. The wild symbol is the Eagle’s Wings logo and the Lucky Eagle Coin is the scatter symbol.

Beautiful Animations

The animations continue throughout the game after the introductory clip. One incredible animation is when the flying eagle swoops down to the river and grabs a salmon in its claws. Also, salmon jump out of the lake at the base of a snow capped mountain. Throughout the game, the background music is inspiring and maintains consistent with the pride of the eagle.

Advantages of the Game

Eagle’s Wings has a variety of benefits for the player. First, the game allows for the stacking of wild symbols. The wild icon substitutes for all other symbols excluding the scatter character. Also, the Eagle’s Wing logo doubles payouts during a winning combination. A stack of three wild symbols across the first or second reel can lead to large payouts.

Second, the free spins bonus round offers a maximum of 60 free spins. The round can be triggered by three or more Lucky Eagle Coins anywhere on the reels. Players must select the coins to determine the number of free spins to be awarded. All payouts are three times the amount displayed in the payout table and winnings are capped at 15,000 coins.

Disadvantages of the Game

On the downside, there are two minor limitations to the game. First, Eagle’ Wings does not feature a progressive jackpot like most other online slot games. Second, the fixed jackpot payouts are low. However, this is balanced by the bonus rounds with large payouts. These two disadvantages are minor when compared with the many advantages.

Eagle’s Wings is an incredible game with large payouts, exciting bonus rounds and exquisite animations. This game is an instant classic and could be one of Microgaming’s best releases yet.

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.

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.
