Online Casino Assessments for 2010: 85% Fail Testing

The first quarterly assessment of the hundreds of online casinos that are put through their paces by the team at CasinoLabRat.com is now well underway.

CasinoLabRat.com is an alliance of industry professionals who systematically and objectively evaluate online casinos, online slots venues and card rooms (the good, the bad & the ugly high risk ones). Online Poker is specifically assessed by specialists from sister site, PokerLabRat.com.

CasinoLabRat.com Test Team for 2010



Casinos are assessed against formal test critera with reviews and ratings published. They make recommendations so you don’t have to lose your shirt to dodgy operators or waste your time playing endless mediocre Blackjack, Baccarat, slot machines and other casino games.

CasinoLabRat.com fails or rejects a staggering 80-85% of all sites they test and based on legal advice have elected not to publish negative reports or a “blacklist” of the really fraudulent casinos they encounter.

All casinos featured on this strangely stylish web site have passed the testing and members of the test team continue to play at each casino as long as it’s review is posted on their web site.

The latest reviews will be updated for March 2010 shortly but 2 new casinos that have really caught the attention of the CasinoLabRat.com test team are will be reviewed joined the recommended list are Manhattan Slots and Dafa888 Casino.

Christmas Slots: Try this one!

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.

Finding a good place to play online blackjack is easy …

So you’re looking for the BEST online casino site for online blackjack?

Like us you probably want to enjoy quality blackjack play – and be confident that you’ll be paid out quickly if you are a winner.

There ARE rogue casinos out there – hundreds of them – and some online casino software and systems just aren’t as good as others for blackjack. The long time to payout, strange rules and conditions, appalling house edge, clunky or slow graphics and all round hassle-factor at some casinos mean that you should avoid them.

We’ve partnered with Gambling review site GoonersGuide.com who have checked out the blackjack over 290 online casinos and from that have selected the top four European casinos for Blackjack – and two best blackjack sites for US players.

Check out the recommendations now – before you waste your time at a crappy blackjack clip-joint – you’ll be glad that you did !

Halloween Slots Treats From Great Online Casinos

Some of the Halloween Candy from Halloweenies videoslotLooking for some online fun this halloween?  Try your luck on the following Microgaming videoslots recommended to up the scare stakes.

Halloweenies – pick a pumpkin bonus game & free spins – great images of surprisingly delicious looking assorted candies and ghouls. Excellent for that Halloween hit!
Frankencash – with electrifying bonus feature (kinda sadistic really!) Very cool white rat.
Boogie Monsters – the funkiest ghouls on the net! Personally, I love the eyeball cocktail.
Eye cocktail anyone? Boogie Monsters is a fun slot from MicrogamingJonny Specter – ghost busting bonus, a floating ghost wild… fun!
Trick or Treat – a 3 reel classic slot, very pumpkiny
>> Visit Spin Palace Casino (UK’s most popular online casino that’s not part of a sportsbook)
>> Visit Blackjack Ballroom (a full suite of Microgaming slots and casino games, don’t be put off by the name!)

You can play all of these games for free by registering as a guest at either of these 2 top rating casinos above (or join up and play for real money).

If none of these take your fancy for a quick scare we suggest you check out Bet365 Casino powered by Playtech for Haunted House – a 3 reel Halloween delight! Witches and vampires abound… or Golbin’s Cave for some less ghoulish but certainly more golden Halloween gaming fun.

(Sorry, no USA based players can join in the above Halloween entertainment due to your government’s stance on online gambling)

Sneak Peak: New Microgaming Slots for Novemebr 2009

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…)

Surely its YOUR turn to win big? Major Progressive Jackpot Payouts!

Winning big at online casinos in SeptemberProgressive jackpots at online casinos across the net seem to be being hit left right and centre at present. There have been some amazing wins, unfortunately none of them mine… but hey, I love to read about the big wins, as it keeps me thinking that perhaps I’ll be next.

Here’s some great examples of why I keep playing progressive slots:

Microgaming has just reported a win of $1 242 562 on a 25 cent bet on Mega Moolah by Polish player Radoslaw M. The excited Pole said that when the big win flashed up on his computer screen he was too scared to touch the hardware! (I would be too! Can you relate to that?) He’ll be flown to London where to be presented with the big cheque.

The Megamoolah slot, which features at online casinos such as Ladbrokes Casino and Spin Palace Casino, is a multi-level progressive that pays out in 4 tiers. The second highest level, Mega Moolah Major, was hit first and ended up paying out $47,081. Then, a few hours later, Radoslaw hit the highest level on the progressive to receive over $1.2 million in winnings.

Microgamings original MegaMoolah Progressive SlotStatistics show that over the past year, the Mega Moolah progressive has hit, on average, once every four days, with the average payout sitting at $33,000. There are now a range of themed slots all feeding the MegaMoolah jackpot (the original with a african animal/witch doctor theme, Five Reel Drive for car enthusiasts, Mega Moolah Summertime (for a day at the beach) and the latest release MegaMoolah Isis (ancient Egyptian theme). Microgaming are apparently planning to add another MegaMoolah slot in the near future… so watch this space.

Not only, but also: At RTG-powered ClubUSA Casino an American player won a stunning  $1 427 499 jackpot on Aztec Riches slot. Vegas Technologies-powered Pay Dirt progressive hit a jackpot worth a reported $435 271, and another player scored the jackpot at Cryptologic Casinos of $421 074.

See if your luck is with you – play MegaMoolah progressive today at Ladbrokes Casino or Spin Palace Casino (sorry, no USA residents can join Microgaming-powered casinos due to your government’s stance on anti gambling)
