Microgaming Casino Fans Can Look Forward to February

Posted in New Games, Gambling News, Slots, Roulette at 8:39 pm by Mike

Weighing up the good, bad and ugly of online casino gamingBrace yourself! Here they come… new casino slots out for February.

For those of us who are totally over all the holiday and festive bollocks, there is something fun to look forward to early February. Microgaming, the leading online casino software provider, has announced their latest additions to the now massive games suite available at the top casinos powered by their software.

New Videoslots in February: Rhyming Reels – Queen of Hearts (a nursery rhyme themed addition to the Retro Reels Series Slots), Ruby of the Nile (with plenty of slots action Egyptian-style) and Planet Exotica (a galactic strip club new to the Sneak A Peak slots series).

A new roulette variant, Multi Wheel Roulette, is also to be added in February. It’s part of the industry-leading Microgaming Gold Series. These games are characterised by their ultra-realistic graphics - none of that clunky look that many casino softwares offer.  You’ll be able to bet on up to eight wheels simultaneously. There’s been a good version of multi-wheel roulette available at PaddyPowerCasino.com for some time - and so it will be great to check out the Microgaming take on this favourite.

Canadians, Europeans, Aussies and more can play Microgaming Casino gamesThese new Microgaming casino games will be live at Microgaming online casinos early February and the team at CasinoLabRat.com recommends Spin Palace or Blackjack Ballroom Casino as great venues to play them - free or for real. (Sorry, no US residents can join any casino powered by Microgaming).

Christmas Slots: Try this one!

Posted in New Games, Slots, Free Casino Games at 10:52 pm by Mike

A new festive online slots game was launched this week by the team at Microgaming. It’s called Scrooge, and yes, as you may have guessed it’s full of “bah humbug” theming and Christmas Carol graphics.

New Christmas slot from MicrogamingThe ghosts of Christmas past, present and future and Ebenezer Scrooge join you as you play this slot. It should come with a warning though as you really do have to play at least until your Xmas Countdown Calendar reaches the 25th of December and you automatically earn the number of Free Spins on the top counter that have accrued as you’ve payed.  All wins during Free Spins are doubled and the fun Xmas Dinner Bonus Game can be triggered within Free Spins feature so it can be a fairly big pay out. Addictiveness rating 8/10!

In the bonus round (triggered by 3, 4, or 5 Door Knockers) you are presented with 5 festive dishes, each with a Multiplier ranging from 6x Multiplier to 20x Multiplier. Allocate a dish to each Christmas Carol Diner and watch them cheer up - and pay up!

While not my favourite Christmas slot, Scrooge is well worth a look even if it’s just to suss out how the new game features work!

Play Christmas slotsPlay new Scrooge slot for free or for real at Spin Palace Casino or Ladbrokes Casino. (It’s a download game, so no instant play)  - sorry, no American players due to US legislation.

PS: My all time favourite Christmas videoslot is Microgaming’s Hohoho. It takes a bit of beating as it’s cheerful Jingle Bells soundtrack and heaps and heaps of free spins always seem to top up my casino balance and my Christmas cheer.

Sneak Peak: New Microgaming Slots for Novemebr 2009

Posted in New Games, Slots, Free Casino Games at 6:48 pm by Mike

We have it on good authority that the next round of new casino videoslots releases at Microgaming Casinos (like Spin Palace Casino or Blackjack Ballroom) are going to be even better than usual.

As you may be aware, Microgaming develop and release 3-7 new casino games each month adding to the suite of well over 350 that most online casinos powered by Microgaming have on offer.

I personally can’t wait to check these ones out as I love to fish and the excitement of getting a bite and a slot strike somehow gels for me.

New Alaskan Fishing slot - online soon!Alaskan Fishing

This 5 reel’er has an amazing 243 ways in which you can win, so this will be one of the most action packed slots online. As you play the graphics are sharp, and the theme is fun. Bonuses involve going fly fishing for coins by picking the right spots to cast, then just simply reel in those coins, or free spin yourself to the game’s jackpot of over 110,000 coins.

 

My favourite fishing slot is Reel StrikeDo we think Alaskan Fishing will beat our all-time favourite fishing slot, Reel Strike? Possibly… but it will need to be really amazing. Bearly Fishing slot tried and failed…
 
Dance of the Masai

Another beautifully designed slot from Microgaming. Vibrant colours of the the Serengeti across 5 reels and 25 paylines. This slot can power players to huge wins through free spins that could be worth as much as 120,000 coins. Plus look out for its jumping Masai wild symbols on reel 2 and 4, where the entire reels go wild! (Gotta have those jumping Masai - they’re everywhere these days - have you seen that crazy carpet advertisement?)

Kings of Cash

Wait - this is a slot, not a card game! The 4 suited Kings from a deck of cards invite you to their cash through generous symbols and amazing bonuses. It’s a bit different from most slots in that this one offers you two jackpot-style winnings through two scatter symbol triggering bonus rounds. Free spins can lead to wins of 50,000 coins and the off -screen card game can mean tasty wins of 75,000 coins. Excellent. We like a regal way to win cash.

 

So, something to look forward to early November? You can play all of these new casino games for free or for real money (USD/EUR/GBP) at Spin Palace Casino or Blackjack Ballroom (sorry, no US-based players due to your government’s anti-gambling stance, or rather it’s inability thus far to work out a suitable tax regimen and such make play legal for it’s citizens…)

Casino Makeover at Victor Chandler Impresses Maus

Posted in Uncategorized, New Games, Gambling News, Slots, Blackjack at 4:25 am by Mike

However unlikely it may sound for an online gambling site to deliver more than their hype, Victor Chandler has exceeded our expectations. Really! We knew the team at VC were tarting up their tired old Chartwell-based online casino, but having finally got around to checking out the makeover, we were astounded!

Instant Play Blackjack, up to GBP1000 per wagerThe new VC Casino, powered by Net Entertainment, is really quite jazzy. Yes, it’s still not a Microgaming or Playtech casino with hundreds of games to choose from (and all those amazingly animated slot machines…) but, for table and card game players who just want instant gaming action with a touch of style, VCCasino is actually now hard to beat!

As Victor Chandler has a reputation that spans more than sixty years in the gambling industry you can take it as a given that they have all their back office processes and the support aspects 100%.

TXS Holdem at Victor Chandler CasinoMy pick of the card games is Txs Holdem poker - great to practice those opening hand decisions… and you can play for free or for real. There’s a good Bacarrat and even the range of Blackjack games give you some excellent wagering options, especially if you’re a system bettor.

My pick of the new VC Casino slots was probably Secrets of Horus, but the The Super Eighties and The Groovy 60s slots are fun too, and I recommend them if you’re a true slots junkie.

Great Video Poker at VCCasino Video Poker at Victor Chandler’s new Casino is also surprisingly good. My favourite was All American (pictured). It might be your too!

You can play all games for free (no registration required) or for real money (becoming a member at VCCasino is free and easy with a whole host of secure deposit options available).

Yes, there’s a £100 joining bonus if you’ve not got a VC account, but the reality is - you’re better just to join up and play… casino bonuses (and not just VC’s) are generally for the mathematically challenged (ie. stupid) and simply more hassle than they’re worth.

Coming to a Microgaming Casino Near You in March

Posted in New Games, Slots at 2:33 am by Mike

CasinoLabRat.com weighing up the best in online casinos

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are you “so over” the February casino games releases? I am (except for Bet365’s Gladiator slot machine…) 

Here’s a quick summary of the next casino games releases from Microgaming - you can look forward to playing these new games in early March at good Microgaming Casinos all over the Internet!

Beach babes video slot: bikini-clad redheads, blondes, brunettes… and beachballs?

Don’t look for the usual bonus round that Microgaming Video Slots offer almost as stanbdard in this game; in a startling departure from conventional game design, and apparently in response to player demand, the action here is all about Free Spins…and spins-within-spins, all accompanied by a significant Multiplier.
 
Fighting Fish Video Slot: Boxing bass, sparring snapper?

We’re not joking, this 5 reel, 30 pay-line slot game features Red and Blue piscatorial contenders for the Deep Sea Championship belt and their crustacean support teams… (what are the Microgaming developers having with their cereal?) Hopefully something to look forward to, it sounds a bit like the ultra-popular fishy cops and robbers themed Dolphin Tale slot.

Kings and Queens Video Slot: Classic casino icons

As you’d expect with a royal theme, this slot is apparently a very sumptuously illustrated game that has 8 x multipliers and a colour-and-suit choice gamble feature that can quadruple your win up to a regal £10,000.

The Rat Pack Video Slot: Music and meyhem

The marketing crew at Ladbrokes Casino assure us we’ll enjoy a “Musical extravaganza when playing The Rat Pack Video Slot”. OK. It’s a new 30 pay line video slot in which 3, 4 or 5 scatters will trigger Free Spins with a special ‘Nudge’ Feature incorporated, where only scatter wins are awarded. Reels with scatters are Held for one Spin, the scatter is then nudged down a position and the reel is re-spun.  Sounds fun…

Triple pocket hold’em poker: poker lovers delight?

This one sounds a winner despite having not played it yet! You get to play two dealers and go after a 40 to 1 jackpot - so you’ve the chance to win up to 40 times your bet with each hand. Looking forward to it.
So, these games will be launching early March at good Microgaming Casinos all over the Internet! Get your Microgaming-powered Casino account ready now - so check out:

>>Ladbrokes Casino (very safe and especially popular with UK and European players)
>>Canbet Casino (Australian owned and catering for Asian players with lots of currency options and payment methods)
>>Blackjack Ballroom Casino (a great all-round Microgaming Casino offering a full suite of all the latest sliots and casino game releases)
