August 12, 2010

Greetings OCS Newsletter subscribers! Hot enough for ya? Well, how's about we turn up the dial even more, then? As always, there are some "hot" promotions and bonuses going on right now, as well as some "hot" waterways that you don't want to go swimming in, i.e., blacklisted online casinos.

Industry News

A whole lot has been happening in the industry of late. The top stories over the last month include getting a bill to regulate online gambling up for discussion in the House (HR 2267), a ruling by the European Court of Justice that hinders uniform regulatory standards, the entrance of MTV UK/Ireland into the online bingo market, a huge win at All Jackpots Casino (see Recent Winners below), talks of the New Hampshire Lottery launching an online casino, the crashing of the first government run online casino in British Columbia,  Play Now, and PayPal's entrance back into the European facing online gambling sector (Ladbrokes and 32Red). Read the OCS Blog for the latest scoop.

Casino Bonus Updates

EH Gaming Ventures, Super Slots Casino has increased it's welcome bonus from 100% up to $300 Free to 100% up to $500 on four deposits. Do the math - that's up to $2,000 Free on four deposits. What's great about these bonuses is that the play-through is only 20x and the only game restriction is European Roulette. Visit US facing Super Slots Casino to find out more.

One of the newest US online casinos to get approved at OCS, Ruby Royal Casino has, alas, nixed their no-deposit offer. The good news is that they have replaced the offer with a true free-play bonus. This is a rarity for Rival Gaming Powered online casinos, folks. Play for thirty minutes free with a starting balance of $888, and up to $100 over the starting balance can be transferred to be played out as regular bonus money with a minimum deposit of $25. Players who do not come out on top after 30 minutes are entitled to a Match Bonus worth up to $888 Free.

Recent Winners

The Jackpot Factory's All Jackpots Casino (closed to US gamblers) has paid out it's largest jackpot to date. Although not the biggest payout for the Jackpot Factory, whose eCOGRA approved online casinos also include the popular All Slots and First Web Casino, the hefty $1.33 million win was a record breaker for All Jackpots. Even more surprising about this win was that it wasn't hit on a slot machine, albeit a progressive jackpot all the same. Microgaming Software's one-of-a-kind progressive Roulette Royale casino game was the culprit for this millionaire creating win, which went to a lucky player who had only been betting at All Jackpots for eleven days. Of course, to win the progressive jackpot takes some great luck. No different than a progressive slot machine, Roulette Royale requires additional stakes to be eligible for the max payout. In this case, it's a one credit side bet placed on top of the original wager. In order to win the full progressive jackpot, you need to hit the same number on the wheel five times in a row. Visit All Jackpots Casino to see their Recent Winner's list.

Promotions & Tournaments

SummerSlotsSeries2Who would have thought the third and final phase of English Harbour Gaming Ventures Summer Slots Series is already upon us? It's as if the Summer has come and gone just when it started warming up. Well, I suppose that all depends on where you're from :) Anyhow, while there is a Part IV to the Summer Slots Series, this is essentially an extra jackpot award ($75,000) given to the player with the topmost score in the entire series spanning June 1 - August 31. As for Part III, which spans the entire month of August and dishes out combined winnings of $175,000, that's where the top action is this month in online casino slots tournaments. All play is on the popular "California Gold" slot machine, with an entry fee of 10 (gets you 75 credits). Up to 500 rebuy's at the aforementioned rate can be purchased to rack up as many points possible. First place wins $75,000, 2nd gets $25,000, third receives $10,000, 4th-5th wins $5,000, 6th-10th pocket $3,000, 11th-20th take home $1,000, with 779 more finishing spots with cash winnings ranging from $25-$200. To join the tournament (it's never too late), visit any of EHGV's online casinos. Our top pick right now goes out to Slots Galore, where new players can still take advantage of a massive $1,000 Match Bonus with reasonable terms, as well as 25% cashback on all deposits.

Featured Online Casino

This month, OCS has no choice but to give a shout-out to Go Casino and Online Vegas. We're not saying these two casinos have had their issues in the past (getting deposits through for U.S. players), however, the fact remains that Go Casino and Online Vegas are doing a great service for American gamblers, and have recently taken another step to earn player trust. Taking operator transparency to another level, both Go Casino and Online Vegas have begun publishing monthly payout percentage reports prepared by the third party, accredited testing house, Certified Fair Gambling (CFG). For more info on CFG, payout reports in general and to see the latest reports for Go Casino and Online Vegas, CLICK HERE. For the icing on the cake, the numbers coming in at both casinos are better than what you will find at most land-based casinos.

Featured Casino Game

Rival Gaming online casinos aren't for everyone (promotions wise), but they certainly provide for an entertaining gaming experience, the least of which is no doubt supplied by their I-Slots. I'm not 100% sure what the "I" stands for in I-Slots, but it has to either be Innovative, Intelligent or Interactive. I'm pretty sure it's the latter. The reason being is that I-Slots include the player in an evolving storyline akin to watching an interactive movie. The animations and graphics are very impressive, and the bonuses aren't bad at all. The latest I-Slot to come from Rival Gaming is none other than "All Aboard". First things first - If you are into trains, this is one slot you don't want to pass up. In terms of winnings, there are many ways to go about it. All Aboard is all about free spins and multiplied winnings. A scatter symbol (on three reels) triggers 10 free spins with a 2x multiplier, 20 free spins and 4x multiplier on four reels and a whopping 40 free spins and 5x multiplier when hit on all five reels. A bonus round is earned with three or more bell symbols and leads further into the I-Slot interactive experience. Wager from 1c to 25c on up to ten coins per payline. In terms of Rival Casinos we give our topmost recommendations to, Sloto Cash is on the top of our list. Right now, they are still offering their $7 no-deposit chip just to give them a test go, plus an additional $577 in welcome bonus money.
