Monday, December 31st, 2012

Real Time Gaming Jackpots

Real Time Gaming (RTG) Software is one of the most well-known online casino software suppliers in the world. Their games are also, quite possibly, the most popular with U.S. players. This is because USA online gamblers frequent Real Time Gaming-powered online casinos more than any other casinos on the Web.

As a direct result, Real Time Gaming’s network of casino licensees, including OCS #1 rated, Club USA Casino, produce one of the largest wide area progressive jackpot networks available to real money online gamblers.

RTG online casino jackpots pool in over $4 million in progressive jackpot winnings at any given time. This collection of funds is generated by seven video slot machines and four table poker games, which are as follows:

RTG Video Slot Progressive Jackpot Games:

Spirit of the Inca – RTG’s newest progressive jackpot game, “Spirit of the Inca” is making waves with players courtesy of multi-level “boiling point” jackpots that guarantee minimum payouts while notifying players just how close these jackpots are to busting. Collective winnings can easily surpass the $1 Million mark on Spirit of the Inca slots.

Aztecs Millions – 5 reels and 20 pay-lines make up this enormously popular RTG video slot. With a default, minimum jackpot of $1 Million, Aztecs Millions happens to be one of the largest standalone progressive jackpot slots on the internet.

Jackpot Cleopatra’s Gold – The jackpot version of the original “Cleopatra’s Gold” video slot, free spins and tripled wins are the name of the game at Jackpot Cleopatra’s Gold. Progressive jackpot totals generally hover in the hundreds-of-thousands of dollars.

Jackpot Pinatas – Quite possibly the most popular RTG progressive jackpot slot machine in action today, this 5-reel, 20-payline game is characterized by high paying bonus rounds and one of the most consistently large jackpots in the millions.

Mid-Life Crisis – The counterpart to “Shopping Spree” (see below), “Mid-Life Crisis” has a default jackpot of $25K, and consistently churns out frequent wins. An extra two bonus spins on top of an already generous bonus scheme make this a popular game.

Shopping Spree – Sharing a synced jackpot with “Mid-Life Crisis”, “Shopping Spree” is one of RTG’s first progressive jackpot games. Nine paylines of action with bonus games and high paying wins characterize this entertaining video slot.

Shopping Spree 2 – A modern remake of the original game, Shopping Spree 2 offers a standalone jackpot capable of reaching seven figures. If you’re in love with Shopping Spree’s bonus rounds, you won’t be disappointed with the bonuses offered on part 2.

RTG Table Poker Progressive Jackpot Games include Caribbean Draw Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Caribbean Hold’em Poker – all four of which are connected by a wide area progressive jackpot capable of surpassing the $100K mark. The fourth progressive jackpot poker game is Let ‘Em Ride Poker, which is a standalone jackpot offering thousands at any given time.

Gambling Guide, OnlineCasino.net, Expands Publication

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

OnlineCasinoNetHere at Online Casino Suite, we’ve been covering the online gambling industry for well over a decade. This has entailed reporting on everything from legislative online gambling updates to the latest promotions being offered by the best online casinos.

While our main focus is on casino reviews and gaming tips (as opposed to being a dedicated “news publication” such as eGaming Review or iGaming Business), the OCS team strives to constantly stay abreast of the latest happenings in the online gambling world, reporting on the events that have the most direct impact on players and the gaming industry at large.

And thanks to the aforementioned news sites, as well as other leading websites similar in content to OCS, we have been able to bring this news to our dedicated readers in a timely fashion.

One such similar site is the well known and trusted gambling guide, OnlineCasino.net (OCNet), which was recently given some news of its own in the Yahoo Finance, titled OnlineCasino.net Covers Online Gambling News and Gambling Law Updates.

According to the release, OCNet is expanding its current publishing arm to include more gambling news and gaming regulatory updates to meet the demands of a fast-paced, changing industry that is now being populated by players searching for timely and accurate information.

OCNet’s Director of Content, Vick Marieno, said it best when referring to a new generation of online gamblers who are “becoming smarter and asking more questions”. To help meet this demand and in keeping with their mission, Marieno says OCNet is stepping up its own publishing operations to keep up with the times.

This is all in addition to OCNet’s comprehensive casino gaming guide, which provides in-depth information on all the major casino games, including where to find free casino games like blackjack and poker, playing tips, game rules and real money casino reviews. A section for USA players, free bonus offers and an active forum community round out the features that seriously make this one of the best gambling sites today.

Here at OCS, we could certainly look at a site like this as direct competition, but for every time we’ve frequented it to resource our own news, we know that OCNet is only helping us to raise our own bar, not to mention the industry at large. There are simply too many lackluster and flat-out dishonest portals in operation today that only do harm to the reputation of the online gambling industry. We’re on the team that stands for the opposite – in helping foster growth and positive change for the iGaming industry.

There is no denying that the online gambling industry has come a long way since its early days in the nineties. We’ve seen many a gambling news site come and go, not to mention real money online casinos. It’s sites like iGaming Business and OCNet (learn more about online gambling sites at OnlineCasino.net), which are constantly keeping up with the changing times and not just spouting out the same information told in different ways, that have and will continue to be trustworthy resources for online gamblers.

At Online Casino Suite, we strive to be one of the top independent portals on the Web today, and are extremely grateful to these resources for not just helping keep the online gambling industry on a positive track and players in the know, but also for giving Online Casino Suite the means to do the very same!

Largest Mobile Jackpot to Date at William Hill

Saturday, December 15th, 2012

Mobile casino slotsHere at OCS, we’ve seen our fair share of big jackpot wins, which we’re always quick to report. In case you didn’t hear (cough, cough), lighting does strike twice at online casinos. So yes, while it may seem superstitious to start wagering on a slot machine at an online casino where it paid out a big jackpot recently, let’s just say that we’ve seen it happen more than once!

That said, we’re keeping our eyes on top UK online casino, William Hill, where one lucky player was the recent recipient of Will Hill’s largest mobile jackpot win to date, and for that matter, what could possibly be the largest mobile jackpot dished out anywhere online.

According to a company press release, a jackpot worth £341, 259 on the Leprechaun’s Luck slot machine was hit with a £12 wager placed on an iPhone from East London at approximately 9 a.m. on Sunday morning. For security reasons, the identity of the lucky bettor will remain anonymous. However, details of the win profile reveal that the lucky player is a 28-year-old male who works at a supermarket…and who, obviously, enjoys playing mobile casino slots.

If you haven’t yet experienced the fun for yourself, mobile slots truly are a real treat. Formatted specifically for a mobile playing experience, the pristine graphics and touchscreen action on smart phones like the iPhone and Android provides the feeling of actually pulling the slot arm and experience of a brick ‘n mortar slot machine in live action.

A Will Hill spokesperson said that its mobile slot offering has become very popular with players in the last few years, and that they are confident the first millionaire win on a mobile slot will happen very soon.  Could this be the second lighting strike? Well, it very well could be!

What we do know for sure is that after a win like this mobile casino slots are only going to become even more popular in 2013.

Must Trigger Casino Jackpots on RTG Slot

Friday, December 7th, 2012

Spirt of Inca Slot MachineOCS approved Slotastic Casino has announced the launch of a new slot machine, courtesy of Real Time Gaming Software. Called Spirit of the Inca, this is the first RTG video slot with a new “Boiling Point” jackpot feature that reveals the sizes of four different progressive jackpots in real time.

Offering players even more reason to give Spirit of the Inca a spin in real money mode, Slotastic is now offering a promotional free cash bonus worth 100% up to $300 Free through Sunday, December 16, 2012. Just use the code SPIRITOFINCA when making a real money deposit through the casino cashier, and you’ll have twice the opportunity to win one of four networked jackpots.

Thanks to a wide area progressive jackpot system that pools wagers together from players around the world, Spirit of the Inca can return some hefty payouts. The largest of the four jackpots – The Grand – has a default value of $280,000. The three other jackpots – The Major, Minor and Mini – also payout considerably well, and depending on wagering preferences and bankroll size, make for a wide range of winning opportunities.

But what makes these jackpots especially lucrative, not to mention innovative, is the aforementioned “Boiling Point” feature. The boiling point, as it were, is essentially a set amount assigned to each jackpot that requires it to be triggered before reaching the set value. Coupled by a meter that shows just how close the jackpot is to being triggered, helps add another dimension of anticipation and strategy.

Additional noteworthy features of Spirit of the Inca include an expanding wild (the Priestess) that can trigger up to 75 free spins with a 10x multiplier. When the Incan Spirit lands on the first and fifth reel, fifteen bonus symbols will appear, prompting the player to choose symbols containing up to 25 free spins and 10x multipliers, as well as an entire wild reel or an extra wild on each reel during free spins.

As you can tell, Spirit of the Inca certainly has a lot to offer in terms of both winnings and entertainment. And Slotastic Casino wants you to see for yourself. Even if the exclusive casino bonus mentioned above is no longer available, Slotastic has several ongoing promotions available, including their $100 Midweek Madness Bonus, $100 Slot of the Week, $100 Progressive Slot of the Month and $200 Monthly Paycheck. New players can claim a welcome bonus worth 150% up to $300 Free Here.
