Hello again! I’ve been very busy lately and I have not had the time to write here until now. I’ve been travelling quite a lot, as well as stayed home and enjoyed a few shorter trips with my daughters. However, that’s another post. This time, I want to talk to you about a new addition to the gamin world – a new slot in the series Fairytale Legends from NetEnt. The first one was about the Red Riding Hood and her adventures in the forest. It had a lot of interesting details and is a very nice slot to play.
The new addition to the series is Hansel and Gretel! Her we get to follow the youngsters Hansel and Gretel on their adventures though the dark and scary forest. There is colourful items on the slots, treasure chests, glowing dust in the dark forest and a lot of thrilling moments. In short – it’s a very exciting and mystical slot with a nice touch.
Hansel and Gretel has no jackpot, but it’s no problems. The slot has an RTP at 96,71%, which gives something to ask for. I would have liked it a little bit higher. Although, it’s a nice slot with free spins in it, and it makes the whole thing a bit more rewarding. Personally I like a slot with free spins in it, since it gives you a chance of winning quite high without betting. The max bet it €200 and minimum is at €0,10 – a fair span that gives the player a lot of choices.
I definitely like this slot and I will probably play it a lot in the future. It’s a funny detail that Hansel and Gretel are walking at the side of the slot when it spins. Once you stop the reels, they stop walking and turn around to look at you. Just like a companion in the deep dark woods – it feels a lot better!
If you are a slots lover like me, then you might want to test slots for free before you play for money. Most casinos offer demo versions of their slots so you can gamble with fake money to try the game and all the features. Unfortunately I have noticed that games from some software providers can not be tested if you don not log in to you account. I don not like that. I want to try games without having to log in or sign up at the casino.
I think all Net Entertainment games can be tested without the log in process, but I can not try the Microgaming slots before I have signed in into my account which is to bad. If you are intresered of playing a slot you should be able to without any strings attached, why should you invest time in something if you do not know it is good enough?
In the beginning of the Internet Casino era you had to download the casino programs to be able to play the games. I am glad those days are gone and that you nowadays play directly in the browser. The development since the first Internet Casino launched their services have been huge. Now you can play in your smartphone, choose between lots of slots and even play towards a live dealer through a tv camera.
The slots are to day better made with better graphics and sound. And with the release of new slots every month there are a slot for every one these days you just have to figure out which slot that will suite you the best and trying out a slot for free is a key feature for me atleast.
I think the log in demand is a step back towards the old days when it was more complicated to play casino. The big leap for the internet casinos was when all the casino games could be played and accessed by only the browser and not by a third party program which you had to download. So the easier access to a game the better.
If you can not test play the game at the online casino you can always head over to the producer of the slots website, like Net Entertainment, where you can test all the slots for free.
Even though it is fantastic to play casino online, I still enjoy playing at a landbased casino. I like the atmosphere and the social environment. You can also play other slots than you find on the Internet.
Las Vegas is my favourite city, it has everything a casino player can dream about and of all casino cities Las Vegas is my favourite. I have been there a couple of times and I am sure that I will return some day. It´s not the casinos that attracts me, it´s also the food and all experiences you can have.
Mega Fortune and Mega Fortune Dreams are two examples of slots with progressive jackpot. Today I will write about some other jackpot slots. In contrary to what one can imagine there´s not so many progressive jackpot slots out there on the Internet. Only a few percent of all online slots on the market have an progressive jackpot.
Net Entertainment that have created the Mega Fortune slots have made a couple of other slot machines with progressive jackpots. I will tell you a little bit more about them now, but if you want to know more about Net Entertainment you should read this article:
Arabian Nights is one of the progressive slots that are made by Net Entertainment, and is a very famous one. The jackpot is often pooled between casinos, but you can also find versions of the game with local jackpot. In average the jackpot pays out €958 440, and the biggest pooled jackpot it have paid out is €3 332 926. The biggest local jackpot was won at Paf in 2012 and it was worth over €7 million. As you can guess the themes I Arabian Nights. The graphics is kinda simple and straightforward. The slot does not have a lot going on but has a fee spin mode and wild for extra winnings.
Hall of Gods is also a Net Entertainment produces jackpot slot. The sloth theme is mythology and there are both nordic gods and dragons on the reels. The jackpot are pooled between casinos and the average win is €5 428 073 for the big jackpot. In Hall of Gods there´s three jackpots, one big called Mega, a middle one called midi and a small called mini. The midi and mini jackpots are not pooled, they are local for each casino. In Hall of Gods you wi the jackpot in the bonus game. The graphics are kinda nice and the music as well. If you get a wild you will get rewarded since the wild will cover the entire wheel.
Another jackpot slot, that I have covered in a another post is the Tiki Wonders. A simple slot with a Hawaii theme and good graphic and soothing sounds. It has two jackpots but not much more, which is a shame. The slots has wilds and a free spins mode but lack of a bonus game, and such.
The Moolah slots. Microgaming have also developed some jackpot slots. Several of them are connected to the same jackpot, and I use to call these slots that are included in the jackpot pool for Moolah Slots. Mega Moolah, Mega Moolah Isis och The Dark Knight are all example of slots that are included in the Moolah jackpot network. I think it is great when slots share a jackpot, then the jackpot will grow fast and payout faster.
If you want to know more about fantastic slots you should visit freespins365.co.uk, they write a lot of information about casinos and about freespins offers.
In an earlier blog post I told you about a slot that was unique for the bookmaker Paf, bee together. They have a couple of more unique slots in their range of casino games. One of them is Paradise Suite. A humorous slot with a vacation theme.
There are two types of bonus games in Paradise Suit. In one of them you get to choose between a number of keys. The key are used to open a hotelroom door, and if you are lucky you have choosen a key to a nice room. If you are unlucky you get a dirty room with simple standard.
In the second bonus game you choose between surfing boards. The surfing board you choose will a surfer use in a competition, if the surfer makes a succesfull trick you are allowed to choose a new surfing board and in that way the bonus game continues until the surfer fails with the trick.
If you are interested in differently slots I recommend a visit at Paf. They have a couple of slots that are designed uniquely for them and their customers. They also have slots from Net Entertainment and Microgaming.
You can also find videopoker games in their casino. Videopoker is really fun, you can learn more about it at videopoker.mn which is a information site dedicated to this fantastic game. I am especially fond of the variant deuces wild. You can try it at Paf for free if you’re curious.
I like Paf, they are a player friendly bookmaker that offers poker, odds, casino and bingo. It always happens something fun in their casino, tournaments and competitions are common. If I have to say something negative the worst thing is their support, it´s quite slow if I compare with other casinos that offer quick support via chat.
Paf recently upgraded their website to a more modern version. I haven´t got used to it yet, but I think I eventually will like it. Paf have their gambling license at Åland, a small island in the Baltic Sea and each year they donate a big part of their profits to charity.
Paf give away money to charity, which is always a good thing, and also has a lot of good offers. Paf often has some good offers where you can win trips all over the world, and also to big sports event. I know many people who has won trips through Paf.
I really like the slot machines in the category slots3 from betsoft. Slots3 are the most advanced slots that betsoft have created. They are both graphically advanced and have superior music and sound effects if you compare to other slots. The slots has a 3D-like graphic that you will find in some video game, so it is really advanced graphics and kinda revolutionary.
One of their newest Slots3 games is the slot Tipsy Tourist. When you open the slots you will be welcomed with a little movie about an overloaded office worker that finds a flyer advertising a Miami trip. He book a trip and flies away from the heavy job burden and transforms into a relaxed tourist dressed in sandals, hawaii shirt, shorts and sunglasses that cheers on you when you play the slot. As you can guess, this is a slot for me, since I like holiday slots.
The Tipsy Tourist is a 20 line slot that have five reels and three rows. The symbols are flying tickets, shells, beach balls and drinks. You can win both freespins and a bonus round when you play.
Another slots3 slot is Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde where you can win 480 000 coins if you are lucky and hit the biggest win. The graphics in this slot is even more advanced than in the Tipsy Tourist. And the slot has a really cozy feeling even though Dr Jekyll’s sounds are kinda bothering.
The 4 Seasons is a slot with a Chinese theme and many cute animals. You start in the summer time and every 30 spin the season will change, which for me is positive since you wont get tired of the slot.
My favourite slot from betsoft is The Slotfather. It alludes on the famous movie The Godfather. The Slotfather contains many extra functions, for example a bonus round and a free spin mode. But I really like all their Slot3 games. They are all well designed in every way and I could really recommend it to someone who are looking for a new slot to try out.
You can play the betsoft slots at Leovegas, an online casino specialized in online gambling in both computers and mobile devices. Right now they offer a huge welcome package to new players consisting of up tp €1000 in bonus money and 200 freespins. You get 20 freespins right after you have opened an account.
I don´t know if you can play the betsoft slots in your mobile at Leovegas, but if you´re curious visit their website from your tablet or smartphone to find out.
At Leovegas you will find slots from a great variaty of game developers. Games from Net Entertainment, Microgaming, betsoft, Play n GO are only some of all slots you will find in their casino. Nowadays they also have a live casino if you´re interesting in playing table games against a dealer over the Internet.
In my previous post I talked about slots with a Easter theme. Today I will talk about summery slots that I have played a lot this summer. But first some words about black jack, my new favorite game!
Black jack is probably one of the most famous casino games and you have most certainly heard about it or played it. A couple of days ago I visited a casino that had a black jack campaign and I decided to play a few hands just for fun. I found it really fun and now I have invited a few friends out to a casino night so that we can play black jack in a real casino. It will be really amusingly and I shall prepare myself by learning the rules and strategy for the game thoroughly with the help of this site.
One of the most summery slot I know is Bee together, it´s a play together slot at Paf where you can chat with the other players in your apiary. There is room for five players in each apiary and when one player wins a bonus game the other players also get to play the bonus game.
The symbols in bee together is bees, flowers and ladybugs. The play machine has five reels, three rows and 20 paylines. The music is really nice and in the background you can hear bird twitter, which is always appealing to me.
In bee together you gather honey force for each spin you make. The honey force are used in the bonus game and gives you extra winnings, so the more you play the better because you always want to keep your honey force as high a possible. After the bonus game the honey force are reduced.
In the bonus game you shall choose among flowers, apiarys and spiderwebs to get your win. If you choose the wrong object the bonus game is over.
I really like this social way of gambling online. And the slot is so cute and summery which makes me feel uplifted. I also like that you get an advantage for playing longer and winning more, then playing hours at the same slot does not seems that useless.
Happy Birds from iSoftBet is another summery slot. The theme in the slot is birds and the symbols are exotic birds and a chicken plus letters and numbers. In the game you can win both freespins and a bonus round. In the bonus round you shall choose and shoot at balloons to win money.
The slot Beach from Net Entertainment is also a summer themed slot that makes you smile. In the background there is lapping and bird song. The slot are pictured as a beach with all kind of treasures as symbols, shells, treasure chests and other stuff that are placed at the five reels and the three rows. In the game you can win freespins, you win between 8-24 freespins depending on how many scatter symbols you get on the reels. You have to get at lest three scatters to win freespins.
Another slot from Net Entertainment I think fit the summer theme is Tiki Wonders. It is a jackpot slot with a Hawaii theme with five reels and three rows. The symbols consist of exotic animals and exotic drinks. The background sound with the bird chirping and the sound of the ocean is really soothing and calming. And when you get free spins they get excited. The combination of the soothing sound and the excitement when you win is what I really like about this slot. The only thing I miss about this slot is a bonus game, but I guess you can not have it all sometimes.
Today I will write about slots that fits in Easter time! There are several interesting slots that helps you get into Easter mood, since the software providers of course make a slot for every season so you can spin your way into the mood.
One of these slots are Easter Eggs from Play n GO. It has a clear Easter team and contains both a bonus game and free spins. In the bonus game you can win up to 500 times your bet. If you win freespins you get three options to choose between. Each option contains a number of frees spins and a multiplier. For example, choose between five free spins with a 6 multiplier or 10 free spins with a 3 multiplier.
In the bonus game you shall open Easter eggs to win, and since I love easter eggs (well who does not) I really enjoy the bonus game. In the game the symbols on the reels are roaster, chicken, lamb, rabbit and colourful letters. The wild symbol is a golden egg.
The slot has five reels and three rows. You can choose to play with 1-20 paylines and the game also contains a gambling function which you can use if you wan´t to gamble with your winnings for the chance to double up.
Another easter slot is Wild Turkey from Net Entertainment! The slot is suitable during both the Easter holidays and the Thanksgiving holidays. This slot also has five reels, three rows and an option to play with 1-20 paylines. The symbols are imaginative drawed turkeys and letters made of stone. In the game you can get stacked wilds and freespins and the maximum win on the slot is 800 000 coins.
In Wild Turkey you win freespins when you get three or more wild-symbols on the reels. If you get five wilds on the reels you win 60 freespins!
I like both of these slots and I like to play them during the Easter. I like the slot Easter Eggs a more because it have the bonus game. The Easter Eggs is for me the clear winner because it has a better tone and also gets me more in the easter mood than Wild Turkey.
Please let me now what your favourite Easter slots are!
Previously I described two slots with a similar function. Today I will write about the jackpot slots Mega Fortune and Mega Fortune Dreams. As you see, the both slots has almost identical names. That´s because Mega Fortune Dreams is a revised version of Mega Fortune. But I will start the story from the beginning!
In 2009 Net Entertainment released the jackpot slot Mega Fortune. The slot theme is luxury and it contains not less than three progressive jackpots. The big jackpot called Mega is pooled between all casinos that offers the slot, and the small jackpots are local for each casino.
Mega Fortune contains both a free spins mode and a bonus game. It´s in the bonus game you can with the jackpots. You get to the bonus game when you have three bonus symbols in a row from the left. In the bonus game there is a turning wheel that you stop, if the wheel stops at an arrow pointing towards the middle you get to play the next wheel, where you can win either money, a minor jackpot or get the chance to play on the third wheel where you can win the big jackpot.
If you win free spins you have the chance to win both new free spins during the free spins mode and to win a multiplied wins.
One day the Mega Fortune slot became famous when a player at Mega Fortune hit the largest jackpot ever on a online casino. The slot was written into the Guiness Book of World Records and later Net Entertainment released a new version of the world famous slot: Mega Fortune Dreams. It was a new jackpot slot based on further development of the famous slot Mega Fortune. As you can see at the pictures, the slots have a lot in common and they both share the special bonus wheel symbol.
The jackpots on Mega Fortune and Mega Fortune Dreams are not pooled, they are separated. Mega Fortune Dreams contains new music, new symbols on the luxury theme and a new re-spin function. The re-spin is activated when you get three or more wilds on the reels. The free spins mode is also changed and in Mega Fortune Dreams you have to get three bonus symbols in a row from the right, not from the left, to get to the bonus wheel.
I like the old one better, I do not really know why. The graphics is kinda dated on the old slot but the music is so much better and I will never get tired of the catchy tunes. And I have also played it a lot so I will kinda miss it if I don not give it a go once in a while. I have not won a jackpot yet but I hope I will some day 🙂
One good thing to know about these jackpot slots is that the payout of your winnings are less if compared to a non jackpot slot. So if you play on the jackpot slot the goal should be the jackpot and not good earnings during your playtime. For me the jackpot is always the goal and I get so excited every time I enter the bonus round.
The slots Gonzo´s Quest and Pyramid: Quest for Immortality have several things in common. They are both produced by the game developer Net Entertainment, both contains quest in the game title and both contains the avanlanche function. Today I want to tell you more about these to videoslots.
First of all I have to explain the avalanche function for those of you who aren´t familiar with the concept. In short it means that when you get a winning combination on the reels, the symbols that´s involved in the win are exploded and new ones fall down on the reel and new winning combinations can be created. Its a neat featured and very unique and also very popular among the slot players.
In both Gonzo´s Quest and Pyramid Quest for Immortality there is a win multiplicator that´s activated when the avalanche function kicks in. The multiplicator levels up for each avalanche in a row you get. In Pyramid Quest for Immortality the maximum is a 10 multiplier and in Gonzos Quest the multiplicator can reach a maximum of five in the normal mode and a maximum of 15 in the free fall mode. The free fall mode is the same as free spins, which often end in big winnings so you will always keep your fingers crossed for a free fall during you play time.
Now when you understand the avalanche function I continue with a short description of each game. I start with Gonzo.
Gonzo´s Quest is a very popular slot with 20 paylines, five reels and three rows. In the game you meet Gonzo the Conquistadore that are searching for gold. In the game you can win 10 free spins/ free fall as I mentioned earlier. To win free spins you have to get three golden stone bricks on the wheels. The stone brick with a question mark on it is the wild symbol in this slot.
Pyramid Quest for Immortality has an egyptian theme. You can´t win freespins in this game, but there are another function besides the avalanche function with multiplier. In Pyramid Quest for Immortality you can get generated wilds when you get a winning combination, The maximum win in this slot is 3 600 000 coins.
Gonzo´s Quest is in my opinion more fun because of the free fall mode but also because the sounds and the graphics is a lot better if you compare to the Pyramid Quest slot.
I love slots tournaments! It adds an extra winning chance and more excitement to the game. When a new slot are released the casinons often has extra tournaments to promote the new slot. Then I search around among the Internet casinos to find great tournaments on the new game.
A slot tournament is kinda simple. You play on the designated slot and if you get lucky in the game you will be rewarded for your place in the tournament leaderboard. You will keep your winnings at the slot as well. If you want to know more about how to play slots, I recommend this website.
There are many sorts of slots tournaments, and the rules differ between them. I am especially fond of the format where the winner is the one who makes the biggest profit in 20 spins in a row. But I also like the ones where the winner is the one who wins the most at a single spin, it is easier to get hold of and track how good your latest spin was if you compare with the leaderboard.
Another one I like is the one when you should play for a sum of money every day, for example €2. If you miss one day you are out of the tournament. You will of course keep your winnings and the player that plays every day for the longest time will in the end win the tournament which often consist of a very generous price. The downside is that these tournaments can take a very long time to finish, often months.
The tournaments I dislike are the ones where you win if you have done the most spins during the competition. I think it´s unfair and only favors the players with huge bankrolls and the players that can play for hours. And I am not that keen on spending to much money, I just want to have a good time spinning the wheels and hoping that I will get rewarded in the games and at the same time compete for prizes in the tournament. I also think it´s kind of irresponsible of the casinos to encourage the players to gamble for long sessions.
The best part about these tournaments is that you always keep your winnings in the game and if you get lucky you will also win extra money if you get high enough and gets a part of the tournament prize pool. You can of course play slots without being a part of a slots tournament, read more about that here.
I once won a slot tournament and got a first prize of €500, and a lot more on the slot during the tournament. It was really fun and a happy moment for me. I have never won a tournament since then, but I have placed myself on the toplist in several tournaments and received a part of the prizepool.
My best advice if you wan´t to start to play slot tournaments is to read the tournament rules before you start to play. Otherwise you may miss important information that makes you fail to compete for the prize money. For example, in some tournaments you have to sign up for the tournament before you can participate, and in some tournaments there is a minimum bet you have to make to be part of the competition.
As you see, it´s important to read the rules if you wan´t to be certain that you are a part of the tournament. If you don´t like the rules, then skip the tournament and search for another that have better terms and conditions. You shall also make sure that the prizepool is worth competing for, sometimes the prizes are to low to put effort to compete for.
