Get $15 Free at Superior Casino for Playing New Rival Gaming Video Slot: Candy Cottage

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

Today, Rival Gaming Software launched a new online casino video slot – and no, it’s not another I-Slot. Sorry to disappoint all the I-Sluts…err, I mean I-Slot fans out there. But seriously, you wouldn’t believe how devoted some players are to I-Slots. Admittedly, they do get me a little hot and bothered, but that’s only because of the realistic animations of curvaceous vixens. Come on, I’m only human! God help me all the same!

Anyhow, as exciting as it always is to get a new I-Slot, this time around, Rival has unveiled a five-reel video slot with some interesting features. Of course, I’m going to tell you all about this new game, called Candy Cottage. But if you want to cut right to the chase, Superior Casino is giving away a free $15 No-Deposit Bonus chip to anyone who wagers at least $10 on Candy Cottage by Monday, March 15, 2010. Keep in mind, that’s a no-deposit bonus, so we’re talking some serious cashout restrictions.

Anyhow, as I mentioned, Candy Cottage is a video slot. It offers five reels and twenty paylines of betting action themed on the story of Hans and Gretel. Slightly creepy – but in a fun way – this game brings to life the crazy kid-eating Witch, the not-so-adorable Hans and Gretel, and lots of candy. Coin sizes range from 1 penny to $0.25 and up to ten coins per line can be wagered. Doing the math, that’s a max bet of $50 if betting the max denomination and max coins. Most players will probably stay away from the larger bets anyways, considering Candy Cottage isn’t a progressive jackpot slot.

What is most interesting about this slot is that it only takes two of the top paying symbols (Hans and Gretel) lined up on a single payline to pay a jackpot. Generally, it takes three symbols. The greater frequency of jackpot wins makes up for a lesser frequency of free spins, which are triggered by three or more Gingerbread House symbols. The good news is that all free spins pay triple winnings, thus giving them extra bang when they do hit.

The wild symbol (the child burning furnace) is expanding, meaning it will expand to fill the entire third reel when it can connect the first/second and fourth/fifth reels together on a payline. That means an even greater chance of winnings on multiple paylines. As for the bonus round – yep it has a bonus round – it is triggered with 3 or more cages (guess what they are used for?…cue diabolical evil laugh). If you are good with a computer mouse, you will love this bonus. It takes some skilled maneuvering, as the bonus consists of moving little greedy Hans all over to eat candy falling from the sky – each successfully eaten candy converting into free cash.

So, there you have it folks. Candy Cottage isn’t an I-Slot, but it sure does stand up to Rival Gaming’s reputation for delivering some of the most entertaining and lucrative slots at USA online casinos. If you would like to experience Candy Cottage firsthand, aforementioned Superior Casino offers a live Flash version to play for free (no account required). If you do decide to play with real money, make $10 in wagers on Candy Cottage before March 15th and Win a free $15 no-deposit bonus chip. Read the OCS Superior Casino Review for details.

Slots Tournament Where Madness Ensues!

Slots Tournament Where Madness Ensues!

March is here people’s, and you know what that means! Wind gusts, heavy rain, college basketball and cold beers. It’s madness, I tell you! What, didn’t hear about the cold beer part? Oh ya, that’s always been associated with March, not to mention April, May, June, July…you get the picture.

Of course, most people associate the phrase “March Madness” with college basketball. However, all the serious online casino gamblers out there also associate March Madness with online slots tournaments. And I’m just talking about any online slots tournament – I’m talking about a slots tournament befitting of the title, “March Madness” peoples!

If you haven’t heard already, “March Madness” is a $300,000 guaranteed slots tournament hosted by US friendly, EH Gaming Ventures online casino network (Vegas Technology Software). It’s the largest tournament of the month, and one of the largest all year. The first place finisher alone is guaranteed to walk away with a massive $150,000. The remaining $150K in guaranteed prize winnings is shared down the line, with second through fifth place nabbing $10,000 each, sixth through tenth place pocketing $2,500, eleventh through twentieth place each receiving $1,000 in cash, and so on down the line.

The tournament begins today and lasts until March 31st. All tournament play takes place on the raucously fun and popular “Magic Monkey” bonus video slot, which offers five reels and twenty-five paylines of action. Check out our Magic Monkey slot machine review (coming soon) for more details on how to navigate and play the magic monkey (such dirty, dirty minds you have 🙂 ). The tournament entry fee is a meager $10 – considering the guaranteed payout – and, of course, buyins are allowed. In fact, they are encouraged, for like any online casino slots tournament, the player with the highest accrued balance at the end of the tournament wins. It’s that simple.

Signing up to play is just as simple. Open a free account at any EH Gaming Venture US Casinos (VIP Slots Casino, Slots Galore, Super Slots Casino are the OCS best picks), login to view the online casino lobby, select the Tournaments link and click the Join button for the $300K March Madness Slots Tournament. Oh, and don’t forget to pick up some beer. What, you think this is Vegas? Although I can’t promise you a cocktail waitress, I can promise that you will soon understand why beer and March Madness go hand-in-hand!

King Cashalot Online Casino Slot Review

Gettin' Medieval with Microgaming's King Cashalot Casino Slot

Gettin' Medieval with Microgaming's King Cashalot Casino Slot

Following the recent half-a-million dollar jackpot win on Microgaming’s King Cashalot progressive video slot, I thought it fitting to give the good King Cashalot himself a closer look and all-out review. So, like I said, King Cashalot is Microgaming Software’s doing, and in fact, is one of Microgaming’s oldest progressive jackpot games. Launched in 2004/2005, King Cashalot has paid out some big wins over the years. The default jackpot is $100,000, and only gets bigger from there. It is not uncommon for the accumulated progressive jackpot to exceed $1 million. In fact, the largest win to date is $1.2 million and average jackpot win is $500,000.

As with all progressive slots, in order to be eligible for the big jackpot, a player must wager on on all paylines. Being that there are nine paylines, up to five coins per payline and a fixed coin value of $0.05, a single coin bet would cost just $0.45, while the max $2.25 wager, which is not bad at all for a modest sized bankroll, will get you even more winnings in pursuit of the big jackpot.

King Cashalot is a five reel slot themed after all the best that Medieval Times had to offer. If you consider torture, the Plague and having to wear burlap the best things to come from Medieval Times, well then, I’m sorry to say that King Cashalot will disappoint you. On the contrary, I’m talking about chivalry, feasts, sexy maidens and friendly dragons And as such, you get just that from the reel symbols. The jovial King himself is the wild and multiplier, the Jester is the Scatter, the Dragon serves as the bonus trigger, while various food items, and of course, the Queen and Maiden round out the list of colorful and sharp symbols.

All winning combinations with a single King serving as a wild will double payouts, while multiple Kings create winning combinations of their own. Five Kings is the ultimate, paying 15,000 credits on a single enabled payline and the maximum progressive jackpot if all five Kings hit on the ninth payline. Being a Scatter, the Jester does not need to land on an enabled payline in order to be in play. If two or more Jesters show on the screen a bonus credit is awarded, amounting up to 50 times the number of credits staked.

King Cashalot Treasure Bonus Round

As for the bonus round, this is triggered when three Dragons hit on reels 2, 3 and 4. Called the Treasure Bonus, simply choose a treasure and it will reveal just how much extra you win (multiplied by the number of coins & paylines).

Cash Splash Video Slot Pays Big at Microgaming Online Casino

Cash Splash Progressive Video Slot Pays $108,000

Cash Splash Progressive Video Slot Pays $108,000 - Play Cash Splash at Microgaming Online Casinos

Yesterday turned out to be an early Christmas for one lucky player spinning the reels on Microgaming Software’s “Cash Splash” progressive video slot. Breaking for $108,577, the jackpot win has, thus far, been the largest all week across the boards at leading online casino software developers. Following Rival Gaming’s “Money Magic” bust, which paid out over $85,000 to a U.S. player over the weekend, “Cash Splash” first churned out a $71,904 jackpot on Monday, only to be followed the very next day by the $108K payout.

Obviously, “Cash Splash” has been accruing a large sum in order to be hitting numbers consecutively like this. And indeed, being part of Microgaming’s massive jackpot network, not to mention the popularity of the game itself, “Cash Splash” consistently accumulates jackpots in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Currently – just a day after the $108,577 jackpot win – “Cash Splash” is about reach the $166,000 mark.

That doesn’t necessarily mean “Cash Splash” is bound to hit again tomorrow, although that could very well happen. 🙂 Being a progressive jackpot game, or for that matter – a slot machine – there simply is no telling when a big payoff will come. Granted, when a progressive jackpot busts and is reset to the default value, players tend to wager less on that particular jackpot. The general sentiment is that the smaller the jackpot, the less “worth” that game is to players who are looking for a big online slot jackpots. In other words, unless the jackpot has reached a value deemed “worthy” of having a go, jackpot hunters will generally shy away.

On the other hand, the larger the jackpot, the sooner it will pay off handsomely, i.e., the max jackpot will be hit, which in the case of the more popular games oftentimes is in the millions of dollars. Consequently, progressive jackpot online casino games tend to have an exponential snowball component to their structure – the larger they get, the larger they get in a shorter amount of time due to an increase in play.

In the case of “Cash Splash”, the fact that two big jackpots paid off in two consecutive days, shows that the world of online gambling is never 100% predictable. While there is a certain degree of predictability for the most part, the one thing that cannot be disputed is that unless you’re in the game, you can’t win. Not to throw the “pressure card” at you or anything, if you’ve never gambled at the online casino before, don’t be afraid to give it a go. Even if you try it out just once, there’s a chance you might become the next online millionaire.

If you are totally intrigued about Cash Splash (and why wouldn’t you after reading such a vivacious blog post, right? 🙂 ), here’s more about Microgaming’s Cash Splash video slot:

Cash Splash is a five reel, fifteen payline game with a fixed coin denomination of $.20. Up to fifteen coins can be bet per payline, making the maximum wager $45 per spin. In order to be eligible for the max jackpot, every payline must be wagered upon. However, only one coin per payline is required, thus making the minimum jackpot-eligible wager $3 per spin. The maximum regular payout is 6,000 coins, with multiplied winnings going into effect when the blue scatter symbol shows up anywhere on the reels. The “Cash Splash” wild symbol does not substitute for the blue scatter symbol, but it does for all other winning combinations.
