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.

Another Lucrative Bonus from Virgin Casino

May 9th, 2011  |  Published in Casino Tips

Virgin Casino is the master of rolling out new games and announcing new promotions for their players. The operator is starting the month of May off with a reload bonus of 50 percent for deposits between GBP 10 and GBP 200. At the end of the promotional period, the bonus will be automatically withdrawn.

Use Bonus Code RELOAD

To register for the bonus, players must enter bonus code RELOAD prior to making the deposit. One of the greatest advantages of this reload bonus is that the withdrawal requirements only apply to the deposit, not the bonus. For this promotion, players must wager at least 20 times their deposit on specific games. One the requirements are met, players will receive the 50 percent back of their original deposit up to GBP 100.

Excellent for Players of all Levels

This is an excellent bonus for low rollers because the wagering requirements must be completed prior to May 31st which allows for almost an entire month. Obviously high rollers will be able to complete their requirements much early due to the average size of each bet. However, if players do not complete the requirements by May 31st, the bonus will expire.

Games that Qualify for the Bonus

On the Virgin Casino website is a long list of games that do not qualify for the bonus. These include video poker, table games and several progressive jackpots. Luckily, players will find a sufficient number of games that do qualify. Most WagerWorks games are eligible with the casino pushing the recently released Star Trek online slot game.

The game is based on the television series with each regular crew member of the U.S.S. Enterprise featuring their own bonus game. Another excellent game choice is that of Wipeout to celebrate the approach of summer. This game boasts an exciting free spins round. Another ocean-based game is that of White Orchid which takes place on an island in the South Seas. Additionally, War of the Worlds is a great choice due to the excited represented in the game.

Unfortunately, new players to Virgin Casino are not eligible for this bonus due to the generous Welcome Bonus. This promotion is already popular with many veteran players who are taking advantage of the free credits at the casino.
