Online slot enthusiasts have been treated to a huge number of new online slot machines throughout the summer months of 2014. In June, July and August, most of the major leading online casino software providers launched at least two brand new online slot machines. Let’s take a look at some of the best ones that arrived throughout this period.

The latest 3D slots from Betsoft Gaming included Gypsy Rose (available on mobile an desktop), as well as SugarPop (recently added to mobile, now available on both platforms).

Fortune Lounge Rewards Program

Added: July 21, 2014

Fortune Lounge is an online casino group which controls a string of impressive online casinos, all of which are powered by award-winning Microgaming software. Their flagship brands include Royal Vegas Online Casino and Platinum Play Online Casino, plus they also control 7 Sultans Casino, Euro Palace Casino and Vegas Palms Casino.

As soon as you register a real cash account with any of these casinos, you will automatically be enrolled in to the Fortune Lounge Rewards Program. This loyalty program is a fantastic scheme which is designed to reward registered members based on their play in the casino (in the real money mode) and then depending on which currency you are playing in will determine exactly how many points you can earn per $/€/£1.00 wagered in the casino. Let’s take a quick look at a few examples.

To earn 1 loyalty point on slots such as Terminator 2, you must wager a minimum of €1.00 / $1.35. This ratio is basically the same for all online slot machines and scratch cards, therefore playing on these games will earn you the most points. In fact, when playing on a game called Bingo 90 Ball, you only need to wager €0.40 / $0.54 to earn 1 loyalty point.

On games such as Bubble Bonanza, you need to wager €1.00 / $2.70 to earn 1 point. On games like 3 Card Poker Gold, Casino War, Hold’em High Gold, Keno, Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker Gold, Triple Pocket Hold’em Gold and Vegas 3 Card Rummy Gold, you must wager €5.00 / $6.76 to earn 1 point.

On games like American Roulette, European Blackjack Redeal Gold, European Roulette, French Roulette, Live Roulette (regular & playboy), Multi-Player Roulette Diamond Edition, Premier Roulette Diamond Edition, Roulette Royale, Sic Bo and Three Wheeler, you must wager €10.00 / $13.52 to earn 1 point.

On games like 3 Card Poker, Aces & Eights, Aces & Faces, All American, Atlantic City Blackjack Gold, Baccarat, Baccarat Gold, Big Five Blackjack Gold, Blackjack (and most other Blackjack Varieties, Live Blackjack Games and Video Pokers), as well as Cyberstud Poker, Louisiana Double, Poker Ride, Poker Pursuit and Vegas Craps, you must wager €20.00 / $27.05 to earn just 1 point.

When playing on games like All Aces, Classic Blackjack Gold (and all other Multihand Blackjack varieties), as well as a game called Win Spinner, you must wager a whopping €100.00 / $135.23 to earn just 1 point. In other words, you’re better off playing on the slot games to earn the most points, but the great news is that there are more than 300 individual slots for you to choose from.

You can find out more about the different tier benefits that you are entitled to from with the download client at any Fortune Lounge casino. As you progress through the ranks and move up through the higher loyalty tiers, you will earn MORE points per $/€/£1.00 wagered. You can also earn EXTRA loyalty points when playing on selected games during regular promotional periods.

Online Casino Advice & Tips for Beginners

Added: June 30, 2014

Signing up to an online casino for the first time is really easy and almost every online casino application form requires the same kind of information. It takes just a couple of minutes to register a new account with an online casino, but you need to be at least 18 years old to open a real cash account.

It would be a good idea to maybe practice on the games before signing up, just to see if you like the casino software they have. For example, Microgaming, Playtech, Realtime Gaming, Net Entertainment and IGT Interactive powered casinos are generally quite popular, and so are Betsoft Gaming, WMS Gaming and Rival Gaming powered casinos.

Although these software providers have all developed a similar breed of games, they all have something quite different to offer players and they all have a unique style of games. When playing in the free play mode to begin with, you can find out whether or not you actually like their games or not.

It would also be a good idea to have some kind of online casino payment method ready. Some of the most popular online casino banking methods include credit & debit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, Solo, Switch and Laser, but many online gamblers today also tend to prefer using popular e-wallets such as Skrill, PayPal and NETELLER, or even prepaid cards like Ukash and paysafecard.

When you are ready to make a deposit, just remember that before you can actually withdraw from the casino, the operators will require some kind of additional documentation from you so that their verification department can check that you are who you say you are. Most online casinos will require a recent gas or electric bill, or even a recent bank statement, just something that has your name and current address on.

Also remember that these documents generally have to be less than three months old otherwise they will be sent back. You will also need to send them a colour copy of your passport, ID card or driver’s license. This is fairly standard procedure at almost every fully licensed online casino today.

One of the other things to remember when signing up to an online casino today is that most bonuses come with wagering requirements (aka playthrough requirements). Always remember to read the small print before accepting any casino bonuses and you should be fine.

Top Microgaming Casinos available Online Today

Added: June 9, 2014

Microgaming is an industry award winning online casino software provider which powers more than 300 individual online casinos. Unfortunately US players are currently unable to sign up to any Microgaming powered casinos, but players from Canada, Australia, South Africa, mainland Europe and also the United Kingdom shouldn’t encounter any player location restrictions whatsoever when trying to register a real cash account with most Microgaming powered casinos.

Microgaming has developed several innovative products/platforms such as their most famous product - their impressive downloadable casino software. This is actually known as Microgaming's Viper client, plus they have also developed two non-downloadable platforms which are otherwise known as Quickfire and Flash platforms.

They have also developed an exciting non-downloadable Live Dealer Casino platform (with sexy playboy bunny live dealers and regular dealers) and players can also experience a growing number of games from their mobile or table device thanks to Microgaming’s mobile casino platform which is called Microgaming Go.

Microgaming has developed more games than any other software provider (approximately 700 individual titles with more than 1000 game variants) and they continue to release new games all the time. On average, at least two new games arrive each month at the vast majority of today’s Microgaming casinos. Microgaming is also the oldest online casino software provider in the world and it has been supplying games to online casinos since as far back as 1994.

In our expert opinion and after having closely monitored these casinos ourselves for several years now, we have found that there is not just one single Microgaming casino that we could say is the best. The main reason for this is because they are all slightly different in one way or another and they all have something unique to offer.

Although it may seems as though most of the games are the same at whichever microgaming casino you visit today, this isn’t always the case. For example, there is a slot which is exclusive to 32red casino called I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here and there are several other Microgaming casinos that have ‘exclusive’ slots which you can’t find anywhere else.

Let’s cut to the chase and tell you which Microgaming casinos we believe are the ones that really stand out above the rest. These casinos are all controlled by reputable operators, they are all fully licensed to offer real cash gambling services and they all have some great bonuses for players to benefit from.

When you get time, why not try and check out sites such as Jackpot City Casino, Gaming Club Casino, Mr Green Online Casino, Spin Palace Casino, Ruby Fortune Casino, All Slots Casino, All Jackpot Casino, Betway Casino, Royal Vegas Casino, Platinum Play Casino, Crazy Vegas Casino, Golden Riviera Casino, Maple Casino, Casino-Mate, Casino Euro, 32Red Casino, Roxy Palace Casino and Euro Palace Casino.

“It’s a privilege to announce that an American and French Roulette version are being added to Net Entertainment’s best of breed games portfolio and we’re sure they will be very well-received,” said the Chief Product Officer of Net Entertainment, Simon Hammon. We managed to obtain these comments from the official NetEnt website.

The new French Roulette and American Roulette games from NetEnt both feature amazingly realistic graphics. They both have a simplified and user-friendly interface with smooth player controls and the in-play animations and innovative sound effects are fantastic. Players can expect to find standard roulette betting options with inside and outside bet types and the placing/removing of chips from the tables couldn’t be easier.

A detailed history and plenty of other useful in-play statistics are available and the hot & cold numbers are based on the previous 500 individual rounds. “Both games provide a world class experience and intuitive designs help make the feeling of sitting in an online table rail environment the best ever,” added Hammon.

Online Casino Software Providers in 2014

Added: April 29, 2014

There are some major online casino software providers and most online gamblers are familiar with the major provider’s games. The big players (major software providers) include companies like Microgaming (which has been around since 1994), Playtech, Betsoft Gaming, Realtime Gaming, IGT Interactive, BetOnSoft, Cryptologic, Dragonfish (888), Net Entertainment (NetEnt) and Rival.

The content from these leading software providers can now be found in more than 1000 fully license online casinos. The majority of these companies have developed an exciting range of downloadable and non-downloadable casino games, plus many of them have also now produced a range of mobile casino games and companies such as Playtech and Microgaming have even developed state of the art Live Dealer Casinos (which we discussed in our last post).

Some of the other leading online casino software providers include companies such as Virtue Fusion and Ash Gaming (both of which are actually Playtech companies), as well as SPIELO G2, Union Jackpots, Sheriff Gaming (which is currently going through some legal turmoil), OpenBet, JPMi, Mazooma Interactive Gaming, iSoftBet, Genesis Gaming Inc, Amaya Gaming, Freemantle Media, Electracade, bwin.party, Blueprint Gaming, Aristocrat, BaddaMedia, Barcrest and Bally Technologies.

You can also find games from other or two other lesser known software providers/game developers such as Quickspin, Leander Games, SkillOnNet, NextGen Gaming, WagerMill, Play’n GO, NYX Gaming, Thunderkick, Blue Gem Gaming and OMI Gaming, plus there are several other companies out there that are currently producing games for online casinos. The great thing about these new companies is that they are all producing some really awesome content and, in particular, many of their slot machines have a unique format with stunning graphics, innovative sound effects and immersive bonus rounds for players to enjoy.

Depending on which country you are located in though will determine which casinos are available to you and therefore which games you will actually be able to experience. UK players tend to have the best choice when it comes to variety. You can find games from most of the providers that were mentioned above in the best UK online casinos and at other similar UK cross-platform gambling portals.

If you are based in America for example, you generally won’t have access to many of these games. US players are generally limited to only being able to play at casinos that are powered by companies such as Realtime Gaming and Rival Gaming.

Microgaming and Playtech have both developed equally impressive live dealer casino platforms and their live casinos have also become extremely popular over the past couple of years.

Many of these live Dealer Casinos also now offer one or two other popular games such as Casino Hold’em or even 3 Card Poker. The great thing about these Live Casinos is that they can generally be launched instantly in your browser over a flash casino platform, but the Live Dealer Games can also generally be found within many casino download clients as well.

Lucky Finnish Player Nets €3.3M Progressive Jackpot

Added: March 17, 2014

A 50-year-old man from Finland recently won the largest progressive jackpot paid out to any online gambler in 2014. He was playing at a NetEnt powered online casino called Casumo [casino] and his lucky spin came on a slot called Arabian Nights. The winner, name unknown, won €3.3 million from just one spin. This is generally not regarded as NetEnt’s most famous progressive jackpot slot, but this recent win has definitely made it even more popular than it was before.

“It’s a pleasure to announce yet another life-changing Jackpot Arabian Nights™ and we extend our congratulations to both the winner and Casumo,” said the Chief Product Officer at NetEnt, Simon Hammon. He continued, “This is the second significant sum paid out this year and it reinforces that our video slot pooled jackpots build up very quickly, which is supported by the high liquidity passing through these games.”

Although this is a fairly big win for the lucky Finnish player, it’s still a long way short of the Guinness World Record payout of €17.8 million which was paid out to one lucky player back in January 2013. This player won his world-record breaking jackpot on NetEnt’s most famous slot, Mega Fortune. Their other most famous progressive jackpot slot is a Norse mythology themed slot called Hall of Gods and this one has also created several multi-millionaires.

Arabian Nights has a Folklore/Arabian/Middle Eastern theme with 5 reels and 10 winning paylines. The Scatter Symbol is the Magic Lamp and when three of these appear in any position across the reels, you will be awarded 15 Free Spins. All wins that occur during this Free Spins Bonus Round will be multiplied by 3X (apart from if the progressive jackpot is triggered).

The Wild Symbol is the Man and he is also the jackpot symbol. Whenever a Wild Symbol/Jackpot Symbol combines with other symbols to form a line win, that prize will automatically be multiplied by 2X. The progressive jackpot will instantly be awarded when five of these Wild Symbols land on ANY of the paylines.

You can play on this progressive slot right now at Casumo Casino, but it can also now be found at various other state of the art NetEnt powered online casinos such as Jetbull Casino, Stan James Casino, BetVictor Casino, Casino Luck, ComeOn Casino, Unibet Casino, Casino Euro, Mr Green [online casino], Betsson Casino and Vera & John.
