What Happened To The Dark Knight Slots
casino blog
25 March 2017

The Dark Knight slot and The Dark Knight Rises slot were two of Microgaming’s most popular slots, so it came as a surprise for many players to find out that these two games were no longer available at their favourite online casinos. The reason why these two games were discontinued is because the multi-year licensing agreement with DC Entertainment had simply expired.

A similar thing has also happened with quite a few other online slots and this is why it’s always a good idea to check out these games before it’s too late. The Dark Knight slot was a progressive jackpot slot that first appeared online back in 2010. This game was based on the 2008 Hollywood blockbuster movie of the same name which starred Christian Bale as Batman and the late Heath Ledger in his most iconic role as The Joker. The Dark Knight Rises slot was based on the follow-up 2012 hit movie of the same name and this one first arrived in casinos towards the beginning of 2013.

A Guide to Online Slots Tournaments
casino blog
24 June 2013

A slot tournament (or online slot tourney) is an event where several different players get to compete against one another for real cash prizes. Not everyone who enters into the tournament will receive a share of the prize pool because it is usually divided up amongst the players who achieve the most points throughout the duration of the tourney.

For example, if 100 people enter into an online slot tournament, there may only be perhaps 10 or even 20 paid positions, with the top two or three people earning the lions share. There are also some online slots tournaments which only have for example six entrants. These smaller, sit ‘n go slot tourneys have a double-up payout structure, which means that if the tournament costs you $10 to enter, the top three players (out of the six that entered) will each end up with a total of $20.

The Essentials Of Playing Online Slot Games
casino blog
16 March 2013

Everyone knows what casinos are, and everyone knows of slots, roulette and blackjack. So surely you know everything about the games that casinos offer, right?

Well, no.

Whilst roulette and blackjack may sound like the harder games to learn, you’ll actually find that slot games are the toughest to pick up since they differ greatly than the land based games everyone is used to. By the end of this guide, you’ll understand the basics of online slots which usually alienate players.

What Does It All Mean?

Online slots use a random number generator, also known as an RNG, which determines the random outcome that appears on the reels. This means you can’t predict what will appear by memorising what order the symbols appear in, as it changes each time. You’ll also find that online slots have features which most land based slot games don’t, including bonus symbols, which I’ll detail later.

What Type of Online Slots Offer the Biggest Payout?
casino blog
06 March 2013

Do you want to maximize your odds of winning big when you play online slots? Although just playing slots can be a lot of fun, knowing that you have a chance of winning big makes the experience all the more exciting. Since there's nothing quite like the thrill of chasing a big payday, you're probably dying to know which form of slots will deliver this experience to you. If you want the opportunity to win big, slots that offer a progressive jackpot are the way to go.

What is a Progressive Jackpot?

A progressive jackpot is a big reward that grows over time. It's possible for this type of jackpot to hit six or even seven figures. Although that's almost hard to fathom, there's a simple explanation for why a single jackpot can change your life. The way a progressive jackpot works is by linking multiple slots together. As more people spin and play, the jackpot keeps rolling higher. Eventually, someone hits the right combination of reels to win a truly massive amount.

Tips for Winning at Slots
casino blog
22 August 2012

Slots are a lot of fun to play, but they can be an expensive form of entertainment for those who are not playing to win. Slot machine players need to play with a plan to maximize their chances of winning. Follow these tips to have the best chance to win at slots and collect a huge jackpot.

Have a Bankroll

Players need to have a big enough bankroll to win without risking too much. It is important for players to separate a slot machine bankroll away from the expenses needed for everyday life. Only play with the bankroll that is specifically for slots. Players should never play with money that they can’t afford to lose.

Get the Best Odds

This is the most important factor in increasing the chances of winning at slots. Different casinos offer different odds on their slots. Even the same casino will have different odds on their different slot machines.

The ever Changing Face of the Online Slot
casino blog
23 June 2012

Online slots have come a long way in the looks department since the mid-1990s when slot machine software was still in its infancy. This section take a brief look at how they have evolved over the past 15 or so years, looking at the first ever classic slot up to the most recently developed 3 dimensional i-Slots.

Classic slots were the first slots to become available online. These had just three reels and one winning payline and very few player controls. They are still around today and it was Microgaming who first blessed us with their creation.  In fact, that very first slot, ‘Cash Splash’ can still be played today in various Microgaming-powered online casinos.

All of a sudden, more slots started appearing and other software companies began developing their own take on a slot machine. More online casinos also started popping up all over the web and players didn’t have to look far to find a slot.

Are Online Slots Tournaments Worth the Hassle
casino blog
18 June 2012

To take part in an online slot tournament, you really have to enjoy slots. They have only become popular in the past few years and are still not yet widely available, plus it is only recently that they have gathered momentum and started appearing in more online casinos, but what is so fascinating about an online slot tournament?

To actually sign up to one of these, you must be a fan of online slots. It’s not important to love slots, but what’s the point in signing up for one if you don’t like slots in the first place? Although most of the tournaments don’t tend to last too long (in some cases just five minutes), the repetitive spinning of the reels can be too much for some players, but for a slot enthusiast, these tourneys are the best thing since sliced bread.

Some slots tournaments can last 20 or so minutes but some of the extended tourneys can last for an entire day, which will automatically pause each time you log out (not the tourney but your individual play). The entrance price for a slot tourney can range from low buy-ins up to the more expensive buy-ins for highrollers.

When is it Best to Play on an Online Progressive Jackpot Game?
casino blog
16 June 2012

A progressive jackpot game has an accumulating prize pool that is usually spread over a vast network of online gambling portals. In the past few years, more and more progressive jackpot games have become available for players.

Each software provider has its own progressive jackpot network, with each company offering between 5 and 20 progressive jackpot games. It isn’t the software provider or the casino that contributes towards the jackpot, it’s the actual players. A small percentage of each stake spent on a progressive jackpot game is added to the total prize pool. This is why we hear of so many progressive jackpots that reach into the millions.

This is also why there are certain times when players are better off playing on a progressive jackpot game. A progressive jackpot will usually have a seed amount (a starting amount) which is often been added by the casino, but from then on, the prize will continue to climb as more players vie for that same jackpot. The advice for players is to wait until the prize has reached a decent amount, otherwise if you win, you may not be so impressed with the jackpot.

casino blog
28 April 2012

Branded slots are one of the most popular types of online casino games available today.

How to play Deal or No Deal online
casino blog
21 April 2012

Deal or No Deal is one of the UK’s most popular game shows. Hosted by the inimitable Noel Edmunds and broadcast by Channel 4, it features a single contestant pitted against the shadowy figure of the ‘banker’ as he or she tries to guess the amounts contained in a series of twenty-two identical sealed red boxes.

Each box contains a cash sum, ranging between 1p and £250,000, and through the course of the game the contestant eliminates the boxes one by one. After each elimination the banker offers the contestant a lump sum for the one box that remains in their possession throughout the game. They can either choose to ‘deal’ and accept the money, or opt for ‘no deal’ and continue playing.

A future perspective on online slot machines
casino blog
04 February 2012

Slots have come a long way in the past few years alone. The gameplay and graphics have improved dramatically with both Classic Slots and Video Slots and the recent introduction of i-Slots has given us a glimpse of what the not-too-distant future may hold for online slots.

As more and more software companies continue churning out their latest creations, some try to be more elaborate and unique than the last, whereas others have a winning formula and simply mass produce slots that are very similar, and only have minor differences in the themes they offer.

Classic Slots will always be around and there is very little that you can do with these. Then we take a step up to the more advanced Video Slots. These games included scatter symbols, wild symbols, free spins and bonus rounds. These slots really excited the players when they hit the scene and became widely available, instantly attracting a huge fan base.

At What Point do you start to Question an Online Casinos Random Number Generator?
casino blog
07 November 2011

Most of the Random Number Generators that exist today have been carefully scrutinised and are constantly tested by a number of independent auditors. Although the outcome of a game is determined by an RNG, mathematically speaking, the results are just as random online as they are at land based casinos that have physical roulette wheels and dice tables with actual dealers.

The worst thing that a player can experience is a faulty Random Number Generator (RNG) when playing their favourite game online. Many people say that the games online are fixed, or rigged in some way to favour the house, but this is not true. However, this could be said of a rogue operator who is purposely out to scam people. These minority online casinos are very few and far between, but they do operate. Some players do occasionally get caught out and lose money at these casinos. This could be down to the RNG’s that have been used and manipulated to give less than fair outcomes.

Remember that the house always wins so just because you may have had a few straight losses in a row, it doesn’t necessarily mean that the online casinos RNG should be put under the spot light or questioned in any way. This is just down to both bad luck AND realistic outcomes. If you were to have 10 straight wins in a row, would you question the RNG?

Are Online Slots Really Random? How does it Work?
casino blog
06 November 2011

Players have always questioned the fairness of online slots. Are they really random? Are the outcomes as realistic as they are on a land-based slot?

The short answer is yes.

Online casinos use a Random Number Generator, which is usually abbreviated as an RNG. This is a computer program that is able to consistently produce a random and unique series of numbers every time it is used. The RNG’s used by online casinos determine the outcomes of thousands of Online Slots that are currently available. All outcomes today are determined by algorithm, a computer chip and an RNG. Software RNG’s apply to all online games including Roulette, Dice Games, Video Poker and most other Card and Table Games.

When it comes to randomness, both classic slots and the more advanced multi-lined video slots (including their bonus rounds) all have RNG’s constantly working to produce random outcomes and realistic results. The Random Number is in fact generated by a complex mathematical equation prior to producing a specific output.

The Benefits of Online Slots as Opposed to Casino Slot Machines
casino blog
19 February 2010

Gambling should be enjoyed as it’s a great way of letting your hair down with friends and splashing the cash to try and get some more in return.

Unfortunately the nature of gambling is that you will win some and you will lose some but it’s just making sure you recognise when you are winning and when you’re losing.

At the end of the day this is what it all boils down to and it doesn’t matter whether you’re playing the online slots or playing on the slot machines at the casino, the rules are the same.

There are some subtle differences in terms of functionality and the environment that can be the difference from being a winner or a loser.

Playing the online slots on your computer at home does have some major gambling advantages as it means that you won’t be caught up in the atmosphere of a lively and buoyant casino filled with other gamblers either making a ton of cash or others losing the entire contents of their wallets.

Many gambling decisions can be made from the adrenaline of being watched by others and the reactions of the dealer.

Money Management for Online Slot Players

11 February 2010

Whether you are gambling in a casino or using online gambling websites, when it comes to slot machines, you cannot control the spin of the slot game. It doesn’t matter how much you urge it round to the symbol that you need you cannot control it as it is completely random.

The only thing you can control is your feelings and the amount of money you put into the machine. By using good money management strategies you can plan to maximise your winning capabilities and losses to get the best possible entertainment.

The longer you can keep your head and stick to a money management strategy, the longer you will find the games will last, and you’ve got to be in it to win it.

It is important to have a money management strategy in place before you play that particular game as an online slot machine will have a different strategy to playing online blackjack. Many gamblers suffer from a hot head and this is when an online slot will take your money as you will make snap decisions with your budget and before you know it your money’s all gone and the games over before you’ve had a proper chance to win anything.

With the arrival of the Internet came the concept of online casinos that offered a variety of games for you to try out, like video slots. Video slots have become one of the most popular games at most casinos. Video slots are often referred to by many different names across the globe, such as video fruit machines in the UK and video poker in Australia.

Video slots are similar to the regular slot machines found in land based casinos, but with the key difference being that instead of the traditional three spinning wheels there is a video display with five reels.

The standard three reel slot machines have a single payline but with video slots you can have as many as nine paylines, therefore you have a better chance of winning – which is a huge bonus to video slots. What is more, video slots have a wide range of symbols like multipliers, wild symbols and scatter symbols, games with bonus screens and a feature where players can try doubling or even quadrupling their jackpot winnings.

The Best Way to Play Progressive Slot Machines
casino blog
04 November 2009

In both offline and online casinos, slot machines have become a popular way to gamble. One of the true dream makers of slot machines is the progressive slot jackpots, where you can choose from an array of life-changing jackpot games. The live jackpot tickers let you easily see how much you win if you hit the winning combination.

With every coin played, the value of the jackpot increases by a tiny proportion and as a general rule, only the players betting maximum credits per spin will be eligible for an attempt to win the top prize. Regardless of the number of credits per play, all the players contribute to the jackpot. Therefore, if you bet with less than the maximum number of coins required you are contributing to the progressive jackpot without ever having a chance of actually winning it. So remember to never play with less than the maximum number of credits to qualify for the jackpot. If you are trying to stretch your gambling session and want to play one coin at a time then it is best not to play progressive slot machines.

Whether you’re playing at an online casino or in Las Vegas, it is every slot players dream to hit one of the huge progressive jackpots. In fact, the odds for winning a progressive jackpot are actually much better than those for winning the lottery. If you want to go after the big prize it is not a good idea to bet everything you have, but use a portion of your gambling money now and then to chase that progressive jackpot.

Are you up-to-date on the latest slots terminology?
casino blog
24 September 2009

As with every competitive game, we have our own terminology and unique words in the slots world which we would just like to recap on to ensure you know what we’re talking about. If you’re a fan of playing slot machines I’m sure you’ll understand that it’s much easier to play when you are familiar with the terms used throughout the game.

Slot Reels- The wheels in a slot machine which display the images and determine whether you win or lose. The reels are the most important part of a slot machine, without them there would be no game!

Slots RNG (Random Number Generator)- There is a computer chip within every slot which contains a RNG which will generate a number for each reel within the machine. This number is then divided by another number (which can be one of 6 numbers; 16, 32, 64, 128, 256 or 512) and the remainder of the calculation will be the number placed against that reel to decide when it stops spinning.

Who are the Slot Machine Experts?
casino blog
21 September 2009

There are some true slot machine experts walking the streets these days with more knowledge about the game than any player could hope for. Some people spend their lives studying and working on gambling games to come up with new ideas and figure out tricks on how to win. Other than the true Casino Man right here the guys we’ve mentioned below are also quite knowledgeable.

Charles Fey was the first inventor of the slots and built the first ever real slot machine in 1895 after finding a love of mechanics. The Liberty Bell was cased in cast iron and had a classic Liberty Bell on the front of the machine as well as a bell inside that rang when a winner hit the jackpot. Charles Fey invented the works of the classic slot machine that we refer to these days and after finding his way with the machines, dedicated his life to building them.

Michael Shackleford is a professor in the University of Nevada for Casino Math and teaches students how to analyse casinos as he has been studying for years. He has made his career from studying casino games and as a recognised expert of gambling strategy. Michael Bluejay also works with Shackleford to help with the website but also has his own hints and tips for playing online slot machines.

Slot Machine Superstitions
casino blog
10 September 2009

Winning at slot machines, land based or online, is mostly just about luck. There are a lot of people however who think otherwise and have spread around many myths and superstitions linked to playing slot machines and the ‘real’ ways to win, here are just a few to give you a laugh;

Temperature of the coin- some people argue that if you have a really hot or cold coin (there are arguments over which one) then you can get the machine to pay out.

Learn the sequence- one of the biggest myths around slot machines is that you can learn the winning sequence and when they will pay out so that you can then go the same slot machine and wait for the right time in order to hit the jackpot. This is not true and all slot machines have randomised coding that can’t be tricked.

Have you tried Fruit Machines?
casino blog
04 September 2009

Fruit machines are slot machines with a difference, instead of just the normal online slots games with fruit machines you get extra buttons to push, extra bonus games and other features to give a more skilled gambling game. These games are very popular online even though you may not get the full experience of pulling the lever down; you can still enjoy a good game.

Fruit Machines started out in America in 1887 and were nicknamed ‘one-armed bandits’ due to their mechanics which functioned by the player pulling down on the lever to activate the reels. Also, for those not up-to-date on fruit machine history, the new name originated in Britain as they refer to the American-invented version of the game, completely separate to the standard slot machines.
