There are a lot of interesting headlines enveloping the online casino community this week. Everything from spook-tacular Halloween promotions and heightened welcome bonuses to phenomenal growth in Microgaming’s most celebrated progressive jackpots. Let’s take a brief look at some of the biggest publicized online casino features of the week.
£4.6M Mega Moolah Jackpot
Microgaming online casinos are getting a lot of attention these days, especially in the slots category where the infamous Mega Moolah progressive jackpot slot has risen to a phenomenal £4.6 million. It couldn’t have come at a better time for Pulse Casino, a new member of the online gaming community that launched earlier this month, helping to boost player traffic to heights the operator never expected to see so soon.
“Progress since launch has been pretty staggering,” said Tony Stewart-Lord, CEO of Pulse Casino. “We are continuing to make subtle changes to enhance our player experiences. We are learning from our customers as we continue to ask them for their views on all areas of the site from initial registration experience, gaming thrills, all the way through to pay out.”
Pulse Casino’s welcome package grants a 200% match bonus to play the full slots variety, including the mammoth progressive Mega Moolah; long since nicknamed the ‘Millionaire Maker’. Mega Moolah has already made 16 millionaires over the last few years, the highest payout being €6.37 million in 2009, and $5.5 million in 2008.
New Free Bonus from 888 Casino
888 Casino is upping the ante with a fresh welcome bonus promotion. New players who have never deposited at the online casino before are now able to claim a free £88 no deposit bonus just for signing up. Although 888 Casino has always provided regular deposit match bonuses, it has never been known to hand out something for absolutely nothing.
The £88 free bonus can only be used on certain games. It is split into four groups of £22, with each quarter of the bonus deemed playable on a specific game, including blackjack, roulette and video poker. The online casino will continue to deliver its first-time deposit bonus package as well, including a 100% up to £100/€140/$200 on the first deposit. The bonus rewards keep coming with additional deposit matches of 10% up to £62/€65/$100 once monthly over the next 12 months.
Virgin Mobile Casino Spook-Tacular Bonus
Hundreds of online casino are promoting special bonuses to celebrate Halloween, and the Virgin Casino mobile gaming app is high on that list. The mobile casino has just launched a new slots app from Microgaming called Alaxe In Zombieland, boasting ghoulish creatures like a sharp-fanged cheshire cat and frighteningly fun bonus features.
As an incentive to try out the new game that is being called a terrifying twist on the old classic, Alice in Wonderland, Virgin Mobile Casino is offering a 100% up to £25 mobile reload bonus. In addition, Virgin Casino has fine-tuned its VIP program to dole out V-Points faster and make each player’s experience more exciting and rewarding than ever.
