Catch a Wave with Wipeout

February 7th, 2011  |  Published in Gambling Games

The newest creation from WagerWorks and Barcrest makes everyone think of the sun, surf and ocean during this cold, snow-filled winter. Wipeout is a surfing-themed online casino slot game. Players in the United States and Europe can live their surfing desires through this most excellent game.

Wipeout is exciting from the second the reels are shown on the screen. The overall theme has been developed in a psychedelic fashion with symbols that are colorful, bright and freaky. There are special icons like the wild logo which rides the top of the waves and emerges on the top of the reels. Also, the surfer symbol represents the free spin. The regular symbols include:

  • Surf hitting the beach
  • The bus transporting surfers to the ocean
  • The hot sun
  • Extra life
  • Wipeout logo

There are many innovative features integrated into Wipeout. For instance, three or more surfer symbols scattered across the reels begin a bonus round in which players are awarded up to 250 times the total bet in addition to three lives. During the free spins, an extra life icon may appear on the fifth reel to increase the total number of lives by one. On the other hand, the wipeout symbol could appear on the same reel and decrease the number of lives.

Once all lives have been exhausted the bonus round comes to an end. Until that point, players can be awarded many payouts from the free spins without any additional investment. There are also special payouts like a bonus of four times the total bet for each extra life as well as the wipeout symbol. Also, if players complete 50 free spins they are awarded a bonus of 200 times the bet, however, the round ends regardless of the number of lives left.

Virgin Casino is the most popular online gaming site powered by WagerWorks. Consequently, Wipeout has gone live there first. To promote this unique game, Virgin Casino is offering a special promotion of players qualifying for 100 pounds per day up to 20,000 total pounds or the promotion ending on January 30th. To be eligible there are different wave levels that must be acquired.

Wipeout is an extremely interesting and innovative game that has been quite popular at Virgin Casino even during the short time it has been available. The graphics, gameplay and bonuses will make you feel like you are really at the beach enjoying the sun and surf.

Tips for Playing Goal Three 2-Win

December 22nd, 2010  |  Published in Gambling Games

Goal Three 2-Win, created by WagerWorks, is an instant play game introduced by Virgin Casino. Instant play games respectively have their advantages and disadvantages. Instant play games offered at online gaming sites greatly differ from the regular games like blackjack or slots. These games tend to be simple with higher house edges.

Goal Three 2-Win is a soccer-themed instant play game. Although the 2010 World Cup has ended, soccer is constantly in international news; therefore, soccer-themed online gambling games continue to enjoy success.

The betting in the game has been simplified to only 1 credit wagering. When the play button is clicked, the credit is automatically deducted and displayed on the screen. 30 soccer balls are then displayed in a 5 by 6 matrix. The players are then required to select the balls one at a time until a payout is granted. One popular method is to select the balls either from left to right or top to bottom. Other players:

• Select randomly
• Select backwards
• Alternate ball selection
• Trace shapes
• Trace numbers

Another nice feature is the auto play function which allows those players that do not wish to select the balls to have the system choose them. Keep in mind, the auto play button must be clicked prior to the game beginning.

There are two ways to win in the regular game. First, each football reveals a color or number when clicked. Therefore, the game ends when three balls of the same color or same number are selected. If the correct three numbers are selected, then the payout is that number. If the correct colors are selected then a bonus game entitled, Cash Ladder, is activated.

In this game, the player must place a new bet and match three of the same colored balls again. If the player does this correctly, they move up the ladder and select again. After five steps, the player can cash out of risk the money and play again. The top prize on the ladder is 200 credits.

Although Goal Three 2-Win is a soccer-themed game, it does not have to be played during soccer season. It is a fun and exciting new instant play game that you should try if at any WagerWorks powered casinos. Although the house does have a tremendous edge, it is still an interesting game to check out.
