Wheel of Fortune Induces Game Show Slots Craze

Beloved by grandchildren, Wheel of Fortune Slot triggers new slot machines based on game shows of old. In the North American casino scene, there is one slot machine that reigns supreme above all others. It is the iconic Wheel of Fortune, developed in the 1990s by IGT.

Networking their progressives together, the game pays life-altering jackpots on a regular basis. What is it that makes this game so incredibly popular? You might be surprised. A few years ago, IGT’s marketing and development crews wanted to know the answer to that very question, so they sent out a group of surveyors to ask players in casinos from all over… Wheel of Fortune Slot Reminds Players of their Grandparents As kids, most of us had a special relationship with our … Continue reading

Playtech’s new Game Modifier Raising Controversy

Does Playtech’s ‘Game Modifier’ compromise fairness of online casino games? For decades, the integrity of casinos have been questioned by players from far and wide. In the early days of Las Vegas, it is well known fact that the mafia ran the city, and mobsters aren’t really known for their fairness. Strict regulation via government authorities eventually brought integrity to the land-based casino industry, but when internet-based gambling came along, all the old questions of fairness arose once more. Again, it took years of legislative efforts all across the globe to bring palpable order to the iGaming realm, but the industry has finally achieved a distinguished reputation for responsibility. So long as casinos are licensed and regulated in reputable jurisdictions, players can rest assured their getting a fair deal. At least, that was the perception before Playtech announced the release of its new Space Digger Slot. On the surface, it … Continue reading

The Real Deal on Max Betting Slot Machines

Tips for the Conservative Slots Lover: Do I have to bet max to win big? Having played, studied and documented my experiences in the online gambling community for well over a decade now, I get asked a lot of questions. Some are no-brainers. Others are far more complex. Over the weekend, I was asked a rather smart question that I believe deserves a thorough answer. The question was this… Do I really have to bet max to win big on the slots? Casinos would love for you to believe that betting max coins is the only way to produce a big win. After all, slot machines are their bread and butter. Land-based casinos devote the majority of their real estate to these games, knowing that players will flock to them, despite knowing these games are among the worst-paying amusements on the floor.

NetEnt’s DOA2 Slot Produces 30,000x Bet

Dead or Alive 2 already proving why high volatility slots are so popular. When seeking out an online slot machine, moderately experienced players tend to choose the one with the highest RTP (return to player). They are smart enough to know that the higher the RTP, the more the machine is theoretically capable of paying back. True veterans will also take into account the volatility of a game. Volatility – or variance, is it’s also known – dictates the probable frequency and value of the average payout. Slots can come with a low, medium or high variance. Knowing the difference, and what it can do to/for your bankroll, allows players to choose their games more wisely. Low, Medium & High Volatility Slots Here’s a brief overview of what you can expect from each type of slot machine variance.  – Low Volatility: Best for low-budget bankrolls; high win frequency, low value … Continue reading

Close-Up: New Viking Voyage Slot from Betsoft

Betsoft takes to the high seas in the new Viking Voyage 3D online slot. Viking themed online slots games are all the rage these days. Every software company has one – if not far more than one – in its portfolio. Betsoft released its first, Viking Age, back in 2012. After seven long years, it was time for a new addition. Enter stage right – the all new Viking Voyage Slot. There’s no real plot behind the game. It doesn’t offer the immersion or enthrallment of major story-based titles, like Gonzo’s Quest or Jack and the Beanstalk from NetEnt, nor does it provide the unparalleled munificence of progressive jackpot games like the Mega Moolah network from Microgaming. What it does offer is comically cartoon-style 3D graphics and a unique Buy Feature option that gets cheaper as the game goes on. Viking Voyage 3D Online Slot Review Viking Voyage is a … Continue reading
