Casinos

All you want to do is play your favorite casino slot games at online casinos. Why is that so hard?

Well, part of it is because those nasty old casino companies want to keep all of the most popular stuff for themselves. Or, in other words, there’s a clear advantage to having an exclusive contract with a proven brand such as Monopoly, Wheel of Fortune, Jackpot Party, and so on. Historically, companies such as WMS and IGT get a lot of money from the big land-based casinos, and online casinos just can’t compete (for the most part…but the playing field is changing quickly…)

Don’t despair! Our tireless efforts have uncovered a number of online slots that either directly mirror or at least resemble the land-based slots that you want to play online.

monopoly here and now

The Monopoly series is among the most popular land-based slots making the (slow) voyage to online slots casinos.

In some cases, the growing online slots market has convinced WMS and IGT to create online versions of some of their major titles. The good news is that you can now play casino slot games such as Wheel of Fortune, Monopoly, Wolf Run, and more at select online casinos…the bad news is that “select” not only means “very few”, but also “sorry, USA”.

In other cases, some clever online casino slot games developers have created similar games with just enough difference to avoid being called copycats (or worse things). Of course you’d prefer The Real Thing, but until the various issues get sorted out, many of these games are more than enough to keep you happy, and make you some money too!

As you’ll see on the following pages, sometimes there just isn’t anything quite like the original. Sigh. So we went the extra mile to provide you with a few choices that give you what we consider to be the most popular or characteristic features of your favorite slots. We think we did pretty well — what do you say?

February 2011: Microgaming’s 2nd Round of New Releases

Anyone who thinks that Microgaming is going to let February go by without a new slot game is ignoring their history; even if the company could resist the theme of Valentine’s Day, they’ve been almost religious about giving players brand new toys on a monthly basis.

This round includes the undeniably romantic Queen of Hearts, the newest title from Mircogaming’s “Rhyming Reels” series. Full of ruby red hearts and sweets, the 5-reel, 30-line slot game offers plenty of free spins and stacked wilds.

Oh, speaking of rubies, Ruby of the Nile is the second new slot game — less obviously romantic, perhaps, but don’t tell that to Cleopatra. What the game lacks in Valentines, it more than makes up for with separate double AND triple wild symbols (so called because they grant 2x and 3x payouts) plus FOUR scatter symbols for increased scatter wins, PLUS a free spins bonus round!

Romance is nice, but sometimes a guy just wants to get in his rocket ship and go to a gentleman’s club in outer space (right?). That’s where Sneak a Peek — Planet Exotica comes in; lovely alien women beckon the player with free spins and multipliers, plus the Smooch Bonus Feature. Just try to explain the green lipstick on your collar.

If slots don’t excite you (or if you like a change now and then), Microgaming has rounded out it’s February Foursome with Multi-Wheel Roulette, a Gold Series game that allows players to bet on as many as eight simultaneous roulette wheels. Trust us, watching all eight spin at the same time is an unmissable experience — but having eight chances to win is even better!

As usual, we couldn’t be more sympathetic to our US friends for missing out (you can probably sample the gameplay in free mode, but it’s just not the same), but nearly everyone else can enjoy the February fun at Microgaming online casinos (our personal choice is All Slots Casino, because they’re the safest and highest-quality online casino that we’ve seen in a long time).

MGM + IGT = Cleopatra Slots for iPhone!?!

Wow. After denying US players an online version of one of the slots world’s most-beloved franchises, namely, Cleopatra Slots, IGT has teamed up with MGM to provide not just an online version but a MOBILE online version. And if that wasn’t enough, it’s designed from the ground up to work with the #1 most-hyped mobile phone of the last decade.

Of course we’re talking about the iPhone (but also the iPad, the iPod Touch, and anything else that might handle Apps). But there’s two little caveats to keep in mind. One, it’s a “non-wager” version, which means that there’s really not much return for the Free Spin + Multiplier payouts that keep people coming back to Cleopatra, Cleopatra II, et cetera.

And two, this is very specifically reserved for the MGM’s “M Life Players Club” members. We’re not saying that the membership isn’t a good thing, by any means. We’ve spent many happy hours (day?) at various MGM resorts. We’re just saying that you’ll have to sign up if you want to take Cleopatra home with you…

UPDATE: our resident iGuru has checked into the matter and maintains that Cleopatra has been available (without an M Life membership) on the iPhone for a year or so already. Has the iWool been pulled over our iEyes? Hopefully one of our many iReaders will help us settle the iMatter…

Microgaming Resolves to Provide More New Slots

No, not really. Although this is the season for New Years resolutions, Microgaming is merely continuing the laudable habit of releasing more new slot games, more often, than any other online game developer.

January’s crop includes four (yes, four!) new games, including Hot Ink, Retro Reels – Diamond Glitz, Private Eye, and Monkey King.

Hot Ink, as you may guess, is a tattoo-themed slots utilizing Microgaming’s Way Wins paytable (1024 ways to win, rather than the traditional paylines scheme) and the attractive Respin feature (basically a do-over for a disappointing spin).

Retro Reels Diamond Glitz may sound like a reel slots throwback, and its classic casino theme supports this theory, but with 5 reels and 25 paylines — not to mention the aforementioned Respin feature — this is definitely more than a “new-vintage” fruit machine.

Likewise, Private Eye will appeal to the lovers of classic detective films (shweetheart!), but the Way Wins system and video slot format make this as modern under the hood as any high-tech-themed slots.

Finally, Monkey King. With surprisingly deep references to characters of classic Asian mythology, this slot may be your mystical journey to celestial good fortune. 30 paylines, extra wilds, and a whopping 100x multiplier couldn’t hurt, either!

We’ve given them a quick once-over at All Slots Casino, but we’re afraid that you’ll just have to wait a bit longer for the in-depth review that all of these new games deserve.
