There are plenty of
new online casino games to talk about right now...so rather
than go off on a tangent - something which I am definitely
prone to doing - let me begin by actually talking about the
latest games to come out this month. As usual, the two
software developers releasing new games are Microgaming and
Cryptologic. Let's cover
Microgaming shall we?
From the eCOGRA founding member, we've got four new
online video slots to tell you about. These are "The
Great Galaxy Grab", "Mayan Princess", "Stunt Pilot" and
"Lucky Eggsplorer". Aside from the last one, these
titles are pretty self-explanatory - at least as far as
the theme of each game goes. But then again, you never
know with Microgaming, who likes to churn out some
interesting takes on your traditional slot themes.
"Great Galaxy Grab" is shockingly about space travel.
But what makes this slot extra unique is the fact that
it has six levels of bonus games. Furthermore, whichever
bonus level you are at when you log out of the online
casino, will be where you start your next playing
session at your next login. Kind of reminds me of Rival
Gaming's I-Slots, which have unfolding story lines and
episodes which players progress through as play goes on.
Next up is "Mayan Princess", which is pretty much
like any of the hundreds of other video slots offered by
Microgaming. So, if you like the South American culture
and have a thing for hot, Latina princesses, then you
will get a kick out this game. Similarly, if you like
flying, and double payouts on free spins, the 30 payline
"Stunt Pilot" video slot offers some fun bonus rounds
that put your virtual pilot into stunt flying mode.
Lastly from Microgaming, which deserves its own
paragraph, is "Lucky Eggsplorer". You might think this
was a new game themed after and released just in time
for Easter, but actually it's not. It's simply about the
crazy adventures of the Rooster Explorer. But do
roosters lay eggs? I thought it was chickens. But
anyways, it sounds like a great slot to enjoy some
laughs off of, and as you would expect from a slot
machine, a fair chance of winning some big bucks.

Cryptlogic's release this month, which include 25 new
instant play Flash versions of their most popular
downloadable casino games.
