Top Online Gaming Experiences for iPad Users
casino blog
29 April 2013

In theory, the iPad should be perfect for playing online casino games. The touchscreen interface is perfectly suited to making intuitive movements like pressing slot machine buttons or moving chips around a layout, and its shape and portability make it comfortable to use in almost any situation. Unfortunately, Apple’s on-going and slightly childish spat with Adobe means that their devices are incompatible with websites that use the latter’s Flash Player - which also happens to be the de facto standard for interactive online casino gaming. But fear not, brave casino gamers, as there are plenty of online casinos that have adapted their online offerings for the iPad gamer - here are what we humbly consider to be the best versions of poker, slots, roulette, and blackjack for Apple’s wonder-slab.

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.

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.

Which branded slot games do we want to see this year
casino blog
18 April 2012

2011 was a great year for branded slots. They just keep getting better and better. The gameplay on most of these slots can be described as simply fantastic and the overall quality of the graphics and cutting edge animations often takes your breath away. The impressive sound effects and entertaining bonus rounds are also constantly evolving and becoming more creative with each new release.

It doesn’t look as though things are going to be any different in 2012. Many players often anticipate the arrival of a new branded slot (otherwise known as a bonus video slot) and with the amount of ground breaking new and old software developers currently churning out games at the rate they are now, hopefully some of these games that we would like to see will start becoming a reality and appearing in our favourite online casino sooner rather than later.

With the success of major branded games that have already been developed by some of the industry’s leading software providers, players have been able to experience games such as X-Men, Iron Man 1 and 2, Daredevil, Rocky, The Mummy, The Pink Panther, The Punisher, Lord of The Rings, the Fantastic Four and many more. We just hope to see as many great titles coming out in 2012.

How to gamble sensibly on slot machine on a budget
casino blog
09 March 2012

If you are playing on an online slot with a budget, there are several different methods that you can apply to make the coinage stretch a bit further. Before starting, you can adjust the amount of cash that you are spending per spin, so as soon as you have launched your favourite slot simply reduce this number to the minimum amount allowed.

This particular option is available on ALL slots and is the most obvious way of prolonging the time that you can spend playing. If your stake is set to the maximum that your budget will allow, the total playing time could literally be over in seconds.

If you are playing on a Classic single line slot, you won’t be able to reduce (or increase) the number of winning paylines because it only has one, so your cash will therefore last even longer on a Classic Slot than it would do on an average Video Slot for that reason alone.

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.

What are Wagering Requirements and how does it affect your Casino Bonus?
casino blog
18 November 2011

Many online casinos today offer a loyalty program where players must wager a certain amount of cash within a certain period of time to receive a cash bonus. Other bonuses are available upon signing up for the first time, but to take advantage of either of these bonuses, players must adhere to the ‘play-through’ wagering requirements.

In simple language, players must spend a certain amount of cash before even thinking of receiving the bonus. This will require plenty of time spent at the casino and by only playing on selected games. If the wagering requirements are not met within the selected period of time, players can wave goodbye to their bonus, which seemed quite realistic when they first started playing.

When the actual wagering requirements are realised, it doesn’t take a genius to see that if a player does actually manage to wager the required amount, they have been very lucky. Players will need to spend plenty of hours on the computer. In fact, several hours of solid playing time per day is generally what it would take to fully receive the bonus cash. If you only have a few spare hours per week, there is very little chance that you will benefit from the special offer.

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.

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.
