Another tips about slots!

Butterfly Staxx from NetEntHey guys! Sorry I’ve been away for so long, but I’ve had some stuff to do and the blog just fell in the forgotten. However, I’m back with some great news! As you can read in my previous posts, I like to play slots from time to time. Now there has been a lot of new slots on the market and I thought I could share the one I’ve started to like the most.

As you probably know already, I really like slots from NetEnt. They have recently launched a new slot called Butterfly Staxx, a newer and a bit different version of the popular slot Neon Staxx. Butterfly Staxx however, has butterflies as the main symbol just as the name tells you. It is basically a very simple slot with not too much going on. When the butterflies collect on a reel, they all fly to the left reels and stack up. This triggers a re-spin and the slot spins again, for free of course. Ig there is more butterflies, then they stack up and continues to fill along with the first butterflies. A new re-spin starts, and it continues until there is no more new butterflies or when the reels are filled with them. If there is no more butterflies then the winning paylines will be counted and you get your win. If the reels are filled with butterflies you get all the winning paylines and they together creates a Big Win.

There is also a free spins function in the slot. This is triggered by three of a certain symbol. You have to excuse me but I really don’t remember it now, since I haven’t yet experienced the real free spin function. However, I hope to see it very soon since I have big hopes for it! Usually I find the free spins and bonus functions from NetEnt to be very nice, and I’m quite sure these are awesome as well. The slot it selfe is, as always, very well done and with just enough details to create a cozy and fresh feeling. The slot takes place in a dark summer forest with fireflies and beautiful trees with flowers on them. It is really magical but still very simple, and I really like the balance between the two.

I haven’t played it all too much yet, just a few times since I haven’t had too much time over. The times I have played it I have really enjoyed it, and I’m sure I’ll keep enjoying it for a long time. You can find the slot at almost any casino that has slots from NetEnt and it’s often available to play without a real money bet. Also, you can find it on NetEnt’s site if you want to play for free. I hope you like it as much as I did!

Great tips from me!

freespins-secrets-of-atlantis

As you guys already know I am a huge fan of freespins! But hey, how can you not love freespins? If you as I love gaming you’re probably a succer for freespins. Anything else isn’t possible. But to me, it’s an excellent way to make the slot a bit more exciting and entertaining. As I’ve written before the wins are often higher in freespins mode and when a new slot is being released it’s common that you’re given freespins for trying out the new slot. Big gaming companies like Net Entertainment, Microgaming and other are good at handling out freespins with new releases. Since almost every slot machine contains freespins I’ve had a love for this since I can remember. So many times I’ve been in need of a little extra money and tried out the luck at the slots, and so many times I’ve won. That’s the best part of playing, don’t you think?

On the subject, I found a great new website I’ll tell you a bit about, it’s a website focusing on freespins, bonuses and new slots. Can that be why I like it so much? Probably. They say it’s a new casino guide for UK gamblers. At the site they have collected a lot of good-to-know-info on how to get the most out of your gaming. The write about the best online casinos and gives you reviews about slots. It’s high level information and it doesn’t matter if you’re a rookie or an experienced casino player. Either way you’ll find the best of the best here.

What I like the most is all the latest offers from the online casinos and the best news. This is for example where I found out about the new Net Entertainment slot ”Secrets of Atlantis” which I tried after reading about it at the freespins365 website. It’s a really great slot, try it!

Since I don’t want to sound like an ad for the website I need something negative to say and if I have to say something I’d say they could be a bit more frequently updates. I would like to have news 24/7… So more news would be the one thing I would ask them to improve. As it is today they’re updating with the latest news maybe 3-4 times per week. They could update every day I’d say. But that’s the only thing I would like to mention if I had to say something that’s not only positive.

One thing that is perfect is the design. The graphic is nice and stylish and it’s easy to find what you’re looking for. If you want to read about the latest news it’s easy to spot and if you want to visit your favourite casino it’s easy to find your way in. Not a lot of online casino sites that’s well made. It often seems like someones threw it together in 15 minutes maximum. Not good for the industry. However, this site is not another mix-up, it’s a great site! I like it. If you’re like me – a big fan of casino you’ll like this too. It’s all about freespins, bonuses and new fun slots which is what I like the most.

Freespins talk

Freespins – I love them! Both the ones you get from the casino as a gift or a bonus and the ones you can win in slots! I am specially fond of that kind of freespins you can win in slots, because in the freespins mode you often get higher wins than normal, sometimes with added multiplier. For example, in the freespins mode in the slot Victorious all wins under the free spin rounds are muliplied with three! It´s really exciting when I get free spins, since you can win much much more under the free spins round the under your normal game play!

Almost every slot machine contains a chance to win freespin, it´s a very common function in modern video slots like the bonus games that many slots are equipped with. In many slots you can also win more freespins during the freespin mode just to add extra excitement. How you win these free spins can vary, but often when you get three or more scatter symbols. There is usually a manual the will describe how you can get free spins from the slot you are playing.

I also like the freespins that some casinos give their players when a new slot has been released, then I can try the new slot for free and still have a small chance to win real money if I can wager the amount I gain. Freespins offer are often available in conjunction with game releases from Net Entertainment. So keep eyes and ears open for good freespin campaigns when a new net ent slot has been released.

One thing regarding freespins that you always shall bear in mind is that almost every freespins offer has a wager demand on the win amount you collect from the freespins. The wager demand is often around 35 times the win, which means that if you win €10 you have to wager that amount 35 times which means that you have to play for €350 before you can whitdraw the money from the casino. As you understand the gain from the freespins will soon be gone, but if you are lucky you can hit a big win during the wagering process which helps you play longer.

The wagering requirement only applies to the freespins you receive as a gift from the casino.

To sum it up, free spins are a easy and free way to test out new slots you are interested in or a chance for you to win some extra money when playing a slot. The wager demand can some times be kinda rough but you will have fun all the way anyways, and without spending any cash at all (this is the best part :)).

I must tell you. At one time when I created a account at a online casino and got 200 free spins right away and I won €100! Money I could withdraw right away and spend in any way I wish! Now I am always on the lookout for any free spins campaign where you can get some extra free spins when doing a deposal or when I see a new online casino that looks interesting. I know gambling is not always the best way to earn some money, but it is so fun and exciting I can’t hold back.

More funny slots

Today I will continue where I left off in the last blog post about theme slots. In the last blog post I wrote about christmas slots, slots with a historic or mythologically theme and slots with comic book characters. This time I will tell you a little about movie slots, animal slots, fairytale slots and maybe some other slots with fun themes.

There are several movie slots to choose among in the casinos. An old one is Scarface, based on the film with the same name with Al Pacino in the lead. The slot starts with clips from the movie and contains both bonus game and freespins. I really like when you hear the music from the movie, then you get in a special mood :).

Aliens is another movie slot. This one also starts with a sequence from the movie before you come to the game. It´s really common that movie slots contains clips or sequences from the movie. In Aliens you can win up to 570 000 coins and it contains an advanced bonus game where you can climb in levels by manage the levels step by step.

Other movie slots is Frankenstein, The Dark Knight, Gladiator and Rocky. There are also some slots based on TV-series, for example two versions of South Park and a slot about Game of Thrones.

Frankenstein, from Net Ent, was one of the first slot I was playing when I created my first gambling account at a online casino. I really liked the slot and won a lot. Not only was the slot really good looking and great sound effects, but it also had this amazing wild function where one wild spread out and filled half the wheels, which means big earnings to you. This was the first slot where I managed to wager free spins, and even though I did not win that much it was a fun experience to win free money.

The South Park slots is also a favorite of my, maybe because I really like South Park. South Park is a really fun serie and it gets more fun to play a slot when you smile only by thinking of Cartmans bad jokes or his disturbing voice or other moments or episodes from this crazy serie. I know I should not laugh but I always do when I see the intro film when Kenny dies when pulling a slot machine, so typical South Park. The game also has four funny bonus games, which I really enjoy a lot, Cartmans, Kennys, Stans and Kyles bonus games, one for the main characters of this serie. This slot also has three mini feature games, with special wilds for each of these games. This slot really offers a lot of different gameplay and that is why I am not getting bored that easily, like other slots where you are only doing the same thing over and over again with only one boring bonus game, try Blood Suckers and you know what I mean.

As I mentioned earlier, Quickspin is a game developer that have produced several slots based on traditional fairytales. One of them is Goldilocks and the wildbears, another is Big Bad Wolf. A very popular fairttale slot is Jack and the Beanstalk from Net Entertainment, a really good looking slot which gets you in a good mood, and where you can collect keys to get better wilds. Spin three treasure chest and get 10 freespins with walking wilds that can be converted to stacked wilds if you collect enough keys during the freespins. I like when you get rewarded for playing much on a slot, especially one that I really enjoy playing either way :).

When it comes to animal slots, frogs is a common theme in slots. There are at least three slots with frog theme: Mr Toad, Royal Frog and Super Lucky Frog. Both Mr Toad and Super Lucky Frog contains progressive jackpots.

If you like cats the slot Kitty Glitter from game developer IGT is an alternative, Cats is another. In cats the symbols is wild cats like lions, tigers and panters while the symbols in Kitty Glitter makes up of house pet cats. A third slot with cat theme is Catwalk, in this slot the symbols contains of fashion and cats in sassy outfits.

Theme slots

Theme slots – I love them! Almost every new slot have a theme, it can be a fairytaile, a movie, something from the nature like dogs or birds or a slot with a holiday theme. In the early days the slot machines had fruits, gemstones, bar symbols and sevens on the reels. These days are now long gone and instead there are a bunch of slot themes to choose among.

However, sometimes new slots comes with a nostalgic theme inspired of the old playmachines with fruits and bar symbols. Two of them are Starburst and Twin Spin from Net Entertainment. Both slots are very popular. They are like old slots with a modern twist!

I am particularly fond of slots with a holiday theme, like christmas-, halloween- and easter slots. They get me in the right mood for the holidays. There are several christmas slots to choose between, for example Santas Wild Ride, a slot with a modern twist where santa delivers his christmas gift with a motorcycle. Another slot is Xmas Joker from the game developer Play n GO. It has a more traditional christmas theme than Santas Wild Ride with pretty christmas decorations as symbols and cozy music with bells ringing in the background. However, I find it kind of boring and unmodern. But there are many more christmas slots out there to choose between, so try them and find your favourite.

A very common theme in slots are roman and egyptian history and slots based on mythology. One of my favourite slots in this category is Thunderstruck 2 from Microgaming. Here you can meet Thor, Loke, Oden and Valkyria from the nordic mythology. The slot is very graphically advanced and is surprisingly fun to play. There is a randomly activated bonus game called thunderstorm, when the thunderstorm kicks in you can get whole wheels full of wild symbols, which in turn means huge win! You can also win freespins in the slot Thunderstruck 2.

Hall of Gods is a jackpot slot from Net Entertainment that also have a nordic mythology theme. Here is Thor and his hammer in focus and Oden and his ravens. Mega Moolah Isis is another slot with jackpot that has a mythology theme. In this slot the theme is the godess Isis.

Playtech has a collection of Marvel-slots, slots that are based on the classic comic books from the publishinh house Marvel. They have produced slots with the comic characters Spiderman, Blade, The Avengers, Iron Man, Fantasic Four and a couple of more comic characters. All these slots are connected to a jackpot called Marvel-jackpot that can get really high.

Quickspin is another game developer, one of their first slots was Rapunzels Tower based on the classic fairytale about Rapunzel. They have continued in that direction and launched slots like Goldilocks and the wildbears, the big bad wolf and the three musketeers. They have also made a lot of games in other themes too, but the fairytale slots I think are very much the soul of Quickspin. You can find some of the games made by Quickspin at Unibet. You can try them for free if you´re interested, and you don´t even have to log in to the casino. It´s very practical I think.

As you understand, there are a lot of theme slots out there and I haven´t even mentioned one percent of them. Maybe I get back to this interesting subject sometimes! It´s very fun to stick to a theme during a gambling session!

Jackpot – fact and records!

What would you do if you won a signifcant sum of money? I think that´s a question we all have asked ourselfs and fantasized about. We imagine how we would travel, invest in a home, save some money and maybe share some of the money with the near and the dear. I guess that´s what most of us plan to do with a life changing sum of money. But of course some of us have far more exotic and interesting plans for a large win.

I myself could imagine buying an luxurious boat, starting an own jewelry brand and try expensive food restaurants! I would really like to visit a guide michelin restaurant sometime. It would also be nice to buy some nice art like paintings and small sculptures. But these are only a couple of dreams, and you always have to dream!

In a casino you´re surrounded by large jackpots. In january 2013 a new online slot jackpot record was set. The slot machine Mega Fortune from Net Enterainment paid out the largest online jackpot ever to a player at the bookmaker Paf. The jackpot win was over €15 million and went to a finnish player. Last year the record was taken over by the slot Mega Moolah that paid out over €17,8 million to a winner at Betway. You can read more about that at guinness world records website.

After mobile casino was introduced at the market there has also been a couple of people who have won a big jackpot while they where playing at their smartphone. What a chocking thing to win a significant of money while enjoying yourself while you are waiting for an airplane or something

In a casino the jackpots at slots often holds the largest win amounts. There are a number of different jackpot slots out there, but Mega Fortune, Mega Moolah, Hall of Gods and Arabien Nights are all jackpot slots that have paid out large jackpot wins containing millions of euros.
Hitting a jackpot is of course really unlikely and the probability very small. But if you want to give it a try anyway there´s a thing you should know first. Many of the slots with jackpots have rules regarding how much you have to bet per spinn to have a chance to win the jackpot. In many slots you have to bet the maximum bet to compete for the jackpot. Information about this should be found in the information section for the slot. Read it and if you don´t want to bet enough to compete for the jackpot, then choose another slot. Otherwise you will only contribute to the jackpot but without having a chance to win it.

If you are interested in learning more about Mega Fortune and Mega Moolah you can read more about them at the swedish site casinosnack.com. You can also read more information about jackpots at this website and read reviews about online casinos. I always recommend people to learn more about the jackpot games they are about to play before they start.

Slot developers

Did you know that Net Entertainment, the developer of casino games, is a Swedish company? Well, it is and it has a long history of developing casino games for the online market. The jackpot slot Mega Fortune became world famous in 2013 when it payed out a gigantic jackpot worth over €15 million I think. Other well known Net Ent slots is Gonzos Quest, Starburst, Jack and the Beanstalk and Hall of Gods.

Net Entertainment isn´t the only swedish game developer. Other companys I can think of is Quickspin, Play n GO and Thunderkick. Quickspin is the company behind the slots based on classic fairytales like Goldilock and the wildbears and Big Bad Wolf. I personally really enjoy their fairy tale slots, but I don´t like their other more modern video slots so much.

When Thunderkick launched their first slot I thought it was a fresh addition to the range of casino games. Their games reminds a bit of the games from quickspin and Net Entertainment, but still not. They have a modern stripped down feeling that I like. One of my favourite slots from Thunderkick is Birds on a Wire.

I like trying new slots and sometimes I look into the casino and open up games that I haven´t played earlier. Sometimes I find new favourites, like the slot Victorious from Net Ent. But most of the slots are quite uninteresting according to me.

New slots are also released quite regularly, so it´s hard to find time to try both the new ones and the older slots. My priority is to try the new games, especially when they are released with a campaign I find interesting. The best campaigns is when you get free spins on the new game, then you can try it for free and still win money if you are lucky. Some casinos use to launch new slots with a casino tournament, normally I am not fond of that because it use to only premiere the players that plays the most. But there are exceptions so it´s always a good idea to read the terms and conditions for the tournament before you dismiss it.
