Boo! Trick or Treat? Halloween is COMING!

lost-vegas-logo

I love this time of the year. Okay, the days are getting shorter in the place where I live and it often rains, but who cares if you have Halloween? It’s my favourite holiday – I guess I will never grow up enough to stop enjoying Halloween costumes, creepy parties and Tricks!

When I was a child I always loved to wear zombie costumes. In fact, zombies have always been my favourite horror characters. A bit slower than usual people, ugly-lloking and half-decayed zombies stimulated my imagination since kindergarten years. Skeletons were too thin, vampires were so “typical” and witches were for girls, while zombies… well, zombies were just perfect!

There is no wonder then that I was pretty excited when I heard about the newest game from Microgaming – Lost Vegas. My favourite gaming destination, so called Sin City and zombies – could I ask for more this Halloween? I guess not πŸ™‚ Did the game meet my expectations? Yes, it did – very, very!

First of all, Lost Vegas looks OSSOM! On its reels you will find the images of blood-seeking zombies – their faces are covered with blood and other strange substances – I don’t want to think about the details too much – and they all look really hungry! This is as far as the Zombie mode is concerned. And now the second mode – Survivors. Well, they are so boring that I almost fall asleep when I turn on this side of the game. Sufficient to say that this mode focuses on common people who survived zombie apocalypse and try to find their place in the zombie-occupied city. There are some pretty girls and brave guys, but they are too cute to like them. I got hooked to zombie mode and that is enough for me.

Apart from the excellent theme and nice graphics, the game offers some special features such as Free Spins, Stacked Wilds, Stash Feature, Blackout Bonus and Wilds. Free Spins are awarded when you catch t least three Scatters anywhere on the reels. In the Survivors mode you get free spins with stash feature where standard card symbols are removed adding extra cash to players’ account. In the zombies mode you can be awarded with infection feature where full zombie stacks infect reels turning symbols into stacked wilds. There is also a special Blackout Bonus awarded randomly during the base game. What you can win here is the fact that all high symbols award extra cash prizes. It’s pretty cool and I really liked this option.

I’ve almost forgotten – the game has 5 reels and 243 ways to win – getting winning line is pretty easy then.

I strongly recommend this awesome slot to all zombie-lovers. It won’t disappoint you, so give it a try today and prepare for Halloween!

Sun Tide from Microgaming – bitter disappointment!

Sun_Tide_2b

There were so many great games launched recently that I got used to pure pleasure felt each time I triggered a newly released slot. When I first saw Sun Tide from Microgaming, I expected the same: niceΒ  graphics, interesting theme and innovative special features. Did I really ask for too much? Probably yes, especially when you see the new game from my beloved Microgaming.

The title of the game made me think about some beach parties and sexy girls wearing bikini. I could not be further from truth. Sun Tide has nothing to do with tides, sea, romantic sunsets and those nice things. What you see behind the reels is an orange background with no objects, no girls and in fact no tides. Ok, you may say. Background is not as important as the symbols – am I right. Well, so get ready for truly exciting symbols! What are they? You won’t guess! There are cherries, oranges, lemons, BARs, watermelons and yes, I knew you’d love it – bells and diamonds. I just hate those unimaginative images which spin with no effects and give you no thrill or any signs of excitement.

So maybe special symbols? Yes, there are some of them available in this ugly 5-reel, 9-payline game. You may take advantage of Scatters, Wilds, Free Spins and multipliers. Quite a nice selection for such a boring slot, so I have no rights to complain. The Wild symbol is represented by a gold coin and when it occurs on reel no 3, it can expand to award additional wins. During free spins, the Wild can expand on reels 2,3 and 4 to award even more wins. 3, 4 or 5 Scatters trigger 15 free spins that can be retriggered. And well, that’s it.

I won’t complain any more and leave you with your own final mark. Let me know if you found anything interesting in Sun Tide. I won’t play it any more, for sure.

P.S. There is one more new game from Microgaming, Bar Bar Black Sheep – have you tried it? I’m afraid to do it after I’ve seen the screenshots showing my β€œfavourite” classic symbols. Microgaming, where are you?

Hot as Hades – I love this game!!!

hot as hades

Hello everyone!

I bet you have heard about Hot As Hades from Microgaming. Some time ago all gaming websites were filled with news about the newest Microgaming’s release. Is this game worth our attention or is it another hot advertising campaign? Well, I cannot say anything negative about this excellent slot!

The first thing that catches our attention while playing Hot as Hades are the graphics. The whole game looks amazing – the colours are vivid, all animations performed by the symbols are totally stunning and the general image of the game is really pleasant for the eye. Once in a while, the nice and cheerful character of the game appears in fron of the reels and makes some funny movement. I must admit I have a lot of fun spinning the reels of the game.

Nut what about the basic things? So, Hot as Hades offers 5 reels and 20 fixed paylines filled with the images connected with the Hades lair. What you will find on the reels are the images of boiling lava, fireballs, flame-haired Hades, Medusa’s snakes, Posiedon’s ocean, xylophone. All symbols are well detailed when it comes to the graphics.

During the base game, players can play the Super Mode Free Spins game that is triggered at random – when you win it, you are awarded with 5 free spins. At the time of this round you will be able to benefit from Held Wilds that stay at the same position for th eduration of the feature. If you catch 3 Held Wilds, you will get a 2x multiplier to engross your win.

When you stop the reels with at least 3 scatters, you will start a unique Quest for the Crystal Helm Bonus feature where you need to reclaim the crystal helm guarded by Hades’ connivilling godly siblings. During the round you travel from the underworld and outwit your enemies for bonus rewards. Finding Cerberus awards award all prizes for that level. The quest is finished if you find hidden pitfalls. There are 4 levels of this game. Your aim is to reach Zeus’s chamber and play for the crystal helm. The crystal helm awards extra prizes. To be hones, all these levels make game a bit complicated, but in fact it is quite simple and intuitive. And most of all, the feature is really rewarding!

What can I say? I am a true fan of Hot as Hades slot. As a great enthusiast of Greek mythology and nicely-animated slots, I couldn’t not fall in love with this game. What is more, I managed to win a nice prize in it and spend excellent time in the company of Hades.

New games from Microgaming! Do you like them?

Pistoleras

Some time ago I was thilled when I heard about the upcoming launch of five new games from Microgaming. I always liked slots from this software provider. What about their new releases? Well, they are OK.

The list of new games includes Hound Hotel, Kitty Cabana and Pistoleras. Each of them has a different theme and offers some attractive special features.

Unfortunately, Microgaming does not give us graphics of the best quality. Personally, I prefer more advanced graphics and animations, that’s why I am a big fan of Betsoft.

Pistoleras is centered around the Wild West theme. On the reels of this game you can find the images of guns, pretty cowgirls and wagons. The game has 5 reels and 25 paylines and such special features as Scatters, stacked Wilds and multipliers. Free spins in the game are awarded when you catch at least 3 Scatters anywhere on the reels. There is also a bonus game activated by at least three other Scatters.

The second new slot, Kitty Cabana focuses on the figure of a funny cat who is surrounded by luxurious objects. Kitty Cabana has 25 paylines and 5 reels. It features Super Stacked Wilds,Expanding Wilds, Wild Reels, Split Wilds, Frozen Reels and multipliers. The game itself looks great and offers really nice wins. While playing with the minimal bet I managed to collect quite a nice sum of money.

In general, I enjoyed playing Kitty Cabana, but being a man, I couldn’t choose it instead of Pistoleras. With pretty girls and some frequent wins, I spend great time in the company of sexy cowgirls.

I am really curious about your opinion on new slots from Microgaming. Did you win anything while spinning its reels? Are you sattisfied with graphics and special features? Let me know!

Lucky Leprechaun – March must-play

lucky leprechaun slot logo

Brand new game from Microgaming – “Lucky Leprechaun” may not kill you with th equality of graphics but it is quite profitable and nice to play.

Okay, I know, there are Leprechauns everywhere and I serve you another one on my blog. But c’mon, who doesn’t like St. Patrick’s Day? I may not be Irish, but this time of the year I wish I was one. And the idea of funny magical creatures always raise my spirit.

So here we are, in the world of “Lucky Leprechaun”. The reels of the game are set on th egreen field. What you can see above them is a blue sky and green grass. It is a sunny spring day, the same as the one that we have today in my city.

The game offers 5 reels and 20 paylines. On th egame screen you will find all the images connected with St. Patrick’s Day and Irish culture: beer, pipe, pot of gold and of course, Leprechauns! Even though the quality of graphics is not spectacular, I somehow enjoyed their simplicity. Maybe it is because of my spring mood? I’m less critical, that can be true but I believe that the game does not look very bad.

When it comes to the special features, we have Scatters in the shape of the shamrock and Wilds represented by the Leprechauns. If you catch the shamrock on the fifth reel, you will get 5 Free Spins. Wild symbols, on the other hand, will help you form many winning combinations by substituting any other symbols. But it is not the end. During Free Spin game golden and green shamrocks can appear attached to A, K, Q, J and 10 symbols. Green shamrocks award an additional spin while the gold ones award an additional 1x multiplier.

3,4 or 5 bonus Scatters represented by the pot of gold activate the trail o’ fortune bonus with 4, 5 or 6 Spins respectively. Each additional bonus Scatter increases trail multipliers. In Trail O’Fortune Bonus game you need to spin the wheel to move along the trail and then cross the rainbow bridges to jump ahead. If you discover the green gems, you will receive an extra spin.

What is more, the logo of the game is Wild in the base game and can replace all other symbols except the pot of gold and shamrock. What’s more, in the base game you can take advantage of stacked wilds and Free Spins.

I am sure you will agree that these are a lot of special features for such an easy game. I was a bit confused when I saw the amount of bonuses and realised that the game is not so simple as it appeared.

Summing up, it is impossible to get bored with the “Lucky Leprechaun” slot. If you are seeking for an exciting game for this spring, you need to try it. This game will surely appear on my every-day-slots list this March.

Explore the “Wild West” with a new NextGen’s slot!

wild_west_2b

Hi!

As I’ve promised, I am going to inform you about some of the most recent slots appearing on the market. So, not long ago I’ve found some new games, which are listed below:

-Wild West from NextGen,

-“Titan Storm” from NextGen,

-“High Fashion” from RealTime Gaming,

-“So Much Candy”, “So Much Sushi” and “So Many Monsters” from Microgaming.

To be honest, none of them is great, but the one I liked(in fact accepted) the most is NextGen’s Β “Wild West”.

As its title suggests, the action of the “Wild West” slot takes place in the distant times described in western films. The reels are set inside the saloon and they are filled with the images of whiskey, horses, pretty girls and cowboys. I know there are many other slots with the same theme, but I don’t know why I just liked the atmosphere of “Wild West”. Maybe it is because I managed to win some Free Spins and ended the game with quite nice winnings:) The game offers all my favourite special features: Free Spins, Wilds, Scatters, multipliers and a great Your Gamble game.

All in all, if you are looking for a quite new slot and you don’t mind western movies, you should try “Wild West”. Maybe you will also find it amusing?

Can you suggest any other new slots which are worth playing? Let me know about them!

Bye!
