Do not hurry for this curry!

‘Curry in a Hurry’ is a new release out yesterday at Microgaming Casinos. (Don’t confuse it with Microgaming’s cool little AWP 3 reel feature slot, Cash n Curry!)

Curry in a Hurry new Microgaming slot game‘Curry in a Hurry’  5 reel slot machine is an odd one. The graphics are bordering on amateur, compared to the stylish, almost photo realistic images we’ve come to expect from this canny Ise of Man casino game developer. The game sounds are just the base background casino lobby music with a few “win line” curry house noises dubbed in. Lazy.

In my view this slot game is hardly “a sizzling new video slot designed to deliver spicy online gambling action and entertainment” as Microgaming’s PR team have dubbed it. Sorry to pour hold water on a game, but this one is closer to “damp squib” than sizzling – but, hey, I’m happy to be proved wrong when someone declares this game their very most all time fav!

Play new slot machine Curry in a HurryTo it’s credit, ‘Curry in a Hurry’ does have a bonus feature that triggers when you get three or more curry “Scatters” across the 5 reels of this 25 pay-line game. Once you’re in the bonus feature, you get to pick from a choice of curry dishes and they are rated based on heat – the highest rewards of course going to the hottest dishes.

Game Recommendation: Well, play ‘Curry in a Hurry’ if you must – but it certainly did not make me race off and order some curry take out – or even feel the need for cooling beverege for that matter. I prefer the popular slot game ‘Cash n Curry’.

100 free spins – like, wow!

Isle of Man-based online gambling software and games developer Microgaming has just released an end-of-month treat in the form of 3 new slot machines (plus the release in Flash, no download format, of 2 previously downlaod only favourites too)! Oh, yeah, and a new bonus power poker game worth a look too…

So, once again I’m pacing myself…(I love going on a spree and try out all the latest slots game releases!) so here’s a quick review of the first of the new slots I’ve played from the set: Gladiator 

Pack a picnic to play this new slot - the 100 free spins go on forever!100 free spins – like, wow!  Once you trigger the free spins bonus feature this new slot game almost plays itself – and as it’s 50 paylines there always seems to be winning action. The free spins do seem to go on forever (just like a Roman epic) so much so that I needed a coffee break while they played out…(yawn)! No wonder the graphics included a picnic lunch (or is it a roast dinner?)

Gladiator slot - A stylish roman epic from MicrogamingGolden Eagles trigger the magnificent 100 Free Spins (with variable multipliers depending on how many eagles triggered the bonus) – even the scatter is stylish. A new game feature from Microgaming surfaces in Gladiator slot too – this “Mixed Play” payout feature is activated when the Gladiator and the Empress? (his wife? girlfriend?) appear together on a payline.

Gladiator slot machine - new from MicrogamingThe background audio is well suited to a Roman epic, Microgaming has really captured a suprizingly romantic side to the killing in the Coliseum and the battle for glory.  And, no it’s not just because the gladiator reminds me of Paul, my better half, (except for his long flowing tresses (the Gladiator’s not Paul’s!)) but the feasting, fine wines and roses that abound rather than stabby gory bits. The characters also all look a bit too clean and refined for a dusty sweaty killfest.

Over all the game is way, way better than Microgaming’s earlier and somehow gloomy Roman Gladiator themed 5 reel slot called “Glory of Rome“. (Remember it had the ugly emperor and the Empress looked more like a tired but popular hooker?)

Game Recommendation: Gladiator gets my “must play” rating – even if it’s just to experience what 100 free spins can do for your casino account balance! I was pleasantly surprised. Hope you will be too!

Claymation Casino Game: Fun 3D slot

Pharoahs Chamber - great 3D graphicsThe Pharoahs Chamber is the best “claymation” style casino slot game I’ve seen. It’s almost hidden on the page of Casino Slots games available at “Eurobet Games” (not Eurobet’s standard Flash Casino).

As you’d expect from it’s title, The Pharoahs Chamber is based in Egypt and has an Ankh/scarab/pyramid thing happening. The camel is animated and sneezes (spits? blows a raspberry? yawns?) if you stop playing for a while and one the other side of the reels a (very) strange archeologist/explorer (Egyptologist I guess) doffs his pith helmet and says “hullo” in heavily accented English. The graphics in general for this 5 reel slot machine are comical – (especially if you choose the 3D version), sort of like something off the Disney or Cartoon channel.

2 bonus games with this new slot machineWhen you trigger a bonus round a block in the pyramid slides across to reveal one of 2 different games. A secret passage (with amazing eyes that blink- cats?!) and your get to interact with a range of objects as you explore in order to reveal your bonus payout. In the sarcophagus bonus game watch out for the mummy!

You can play this 5 reel 20 payline slot machine for free or for real money (you need to register a name and password to play for free but it’s quick and easy – no software download is required).

>>Slot game rating: Novelty value high, game playability medium and actual winnability/rewards soso.

I do recommend, however, that you try The Pharoahs Chamber slot game at EurobetGames just for for a bit of fun. (Sorry no real money players from the USA)

So, where are the Best Live Dealer Casino Games?

Click to jump to this live dealer casino comparison pageIf you’re cruising the net looking for the best Live Dealer Casino** – check out this new 1-page comparison of Live Dealer casino games at

** you know, where you can play Blackjack and other casino games online via web cam/streaming video & audio direct from a land-based casino

In Live Dealer games there are no computer “random number generators” or casino software in between you and your big win – or whatever fate has in store for you!  These games are multiplayer, so the dealer deals to up to seven other live players at your table and through the video link you watch all the action as it falls.

Great live dealer chat too – quite fun to while away the wee small hours (check out for a touch of the Irish Blarney and some truly excellent Early Payout Blackjack or for more sophisticated Eastern European flair, try Eurobet Live Casino)

Anyway – if you like it live – check out where the top action is (click on the image of the page, left).

Stand-out graphics in new aerial combat slot machine

While waiting for the latest Real Time Gaming slots releases* to come online at Bodog Casino (the only casino we consider safe for US players from all States) – I see they’ve snuck a couple of sneaky ones in since I last played.

Have you tried Tally Ho?

Click to play Tally Ho for free or for real at Bodog CasinoTally Ho is a surprisingly stylish war time aviators slot. Pilots, navigation maps, medals, fighter planes and “bull’s-eyes” that animate into flying spitfires (these “bull’s-eye” insignia are called “roundels” when painted on the fuselage of a fighter plane – but if you’re a Red Baron wanna be you’ll know that already!).

Tally Ho a stylish new 5 reel slot at BodogYou can win up to 25 free spins when 3 or more roundels appear anywhere on the reels. Prizes are tripled during free spins and the feature can be retriggered. The game has a random jackpot payout too (the ticker runs across the top of the game).


Click to visit Bodog CasinoThe graphics are great but in my view Tally Ho is not quite as good as Net Entertainment’s Pacific Attack (play it at Betsson Casino) that has a bonus feature game where you drop bombs over the enemy fleet for your payout.


Visit Bodog Casino to play this new slot game for free or realPS: RTG’s Tally Ho slot has nothing to do with Microgaming’s “very British” Tally Ho Slot that’s all about a fox hunt, hounds horses and cucumber sandwiches.

Recommendation: Very stylish graphics make this slot machine well worth a look, even if you don’t fancy yourself aerial combat. It’s a pity Tally Ho slot has no bonus feature round – but some players prefer slots that “just pay out” rather than make you interact and jump over hoops for your bonus cash.

Click to visit Bodog Casino - US players welcome too!Check out Tally Ho Slot Game at Bodog Casino – you can play for free as a guest or try your luck for real money wagers. Sorry, Canadians cannot be members at Bodog, but other players from around the World are very welcome!

New casino games releases due at Bodog Casino soon:

*Jackpot Piñatas, Real Time Gaming’s first new progressive slot machine in ages!
*Field of Green, a slot with an American Football theme – and a bonus game where you try for field goals for cash.

Graphic Adventure Slots

Check out the latest online gambling action at Eurobet – you will be impressed, we certainly are!

Eurobet has been offering European and UK punters a great gambling experience since 1926 – but they’re far from a crusty old style gambling experience.

The team at considers that Eurobet’s latest online casino slots and game releases are just great!

In particular, check out slots games:

  • Spy themed ‘Agent X’
  • Cross Court Tennis’ where you really get to play for your bonus and put up with McInroe-style rantings
  • 3D claymation-style ‘Pharoahs Chamber’
  • Plus the elegant and easy-to-learn table game, ‘Trentequarante’.

They’ve even recently introduced some of the best Live Dealer games on the net – with stylish European dealers (rather than attractive Asians).

Click to visit Eurobet GamesAgent X is one of our favourite recent slots releases, and consider it ‘right up there’ with the latest releases from Microgaming and Playtech.

Agent X gives you none of that boring 9/10/J/Q/K graphics or clunketa clunketa sounds we’ve come to associate with middle-of-the-run online slots – Eurobet’s Agent X features the latest dude-spy weaponry, nightvision goggles,and seriously sexy casino gear. With all action on this 5 reel slot is overseen by a stylish blonde that just can’t stop playing with her chips!

2 Great bonus games on Agent X at EurobetThe Bonus games on Agent X slot are more like graphic adventure games





The game has 2 fairly ‘out there’ bonus rounds – spy missions where you get to select the tools to use and when to use them – more like a graphic adventure game than the bonus round of a slot machine! But you still get your $$$ payout.

1. Don’t forget to feed the doberman!
2. Sneak carefully around the scientists lab to upload computer files for the maximum bonus payout.

To play Agent X at Eurobet you need check out the GAMES section rather than the CASINO section. (They offer a mix of different casino slots games at both sites) You can play for free or for real.

Battle for your Slots Bonus – Literally!

Wow! Here’s a new slot game where you literally get to fight for your bonus!

D&D and fantasy role players will relate well to this new slot machine – but it’s fun for everybody really (and while it might be seen as violent, you’ll see more on the TV news to make you lose sleep!)

Click to visit Betsson Casino to beat the Orc for your bonus!Crusade of Fortune is a five-reel 20-line state-of-the-art video slot stacked with lots of cool features. Powered by Net Entertainment and available for fun play or real money play at Betsson Casino it’s well worth a look.

The game features Dwarves, Orks, Elves and assorted weaponry – all of them fairly nasty. It’s hard to tell the good guys (and gals) from the nasties in this slot, but the graphics are great. I especially like the fire as the reels spin. Great audio – kind of heroic when you spin an animated win row and none of that unecessary clicketa clicketa stuff.

You can win up to 250,000 coins – and also win between 10 and 50 freespins (with a x3 multiplier).

This Orc has got to die! Visit Betsson Casino to play this new slot gameSlay the Orc and steal his treasure in the bonus game. (Or in my case, scream, bleed and die trying several times over but still win 1600+ coins… I’m gonna beat that nasty green dude sooner or later! Perhaps if I wasn’t wearing one of those sexy bikini style sets of “battle armour” I might stand a better chance!)

Penguins with serious attitude

Penguins with serious attitude, Ninjas, Samarai and one mean looking walrus guy, are all part of Microgaming new slot machine The Path of The Penguin.

Sushi anyone?The game byline is “revenge is a dish best served cold…” (like sushi I guess?)


Play Path of the Penguin slot for free or for real moneyThe Path of the Penguin is a fun new 5 reel 25 pay-line video slot with a truly cool, and – unlike several of Microgaming’s latest slot releases with photorealistic images – totally unrealistic “Martial Arts on ice” theme. It’s got that annoying cliketa clicketa sound as the reels drop but the characters animate well on win lines.

The game does, however, blend it’s frozen fishy feelings with strange characters such as the Nunchaku Squid, Samurai Walrus and Snowflake Shuriken to create a fast, smooth-running slot machine with some excellent opportunities to win.
Walrus not to be met in a dark alleywayThe big wins potential comes from the Wild Ninja Penguin (that animates to link different symbols as wins), or the Ice cube scatter feature (a Penguin frozen in an ice cube?!), that activates the second bonus feature when you spin 3 or more. Lots of free spins are awarded in this game and the bonus game stages 5 very staunch looking penguins to smash up to three of the 5 ice cubes on display. The broken ice cubes reveal your winnings (multiplied by the triggering bet), or more free spins with triple value winnings. The game jackpot can rise from 30,000 to 90,000 if you trigger the right combination of reels.

Overall game rating? Tricky. All a bit icy and washed out graphics-wise for me, with 9,10,K, etc. symbols hewn out of ice blocks. Perhaps a better mid summer game? (Besides, I’m still enjoying walking Minnie the dog in The Osbournes slot)
