Christmas Fever!

merry xmas

So busy, busy, busy… Have no time for writing. All those Christmas presents, shopping lists and so on. I’ve just wanted to tell you a few words about the certain Christmas slot. As I’ve already mentioned, there is no way of escaping from Christmas atmosphere so I gave up and began to spin the reels of some Christmas slots.

Which one is my favourite? A brand new “Merry Xmas” slot from Play’n Go. Why? It’s simple – because it has great graphics and attractive special features.

Just for start, I like “Merry Xmas” for its neat look. Unlike most of the Christmas slots, it does not show shiny background and childish icons, but instead, it povides the player with well-designed 3D graphics and animations. Finally something more sophistcated than drawings of 3-year-old babies.

The whole gamescreen is set on the window of a Christmas-decorated house. Next to the reels you can see a glowing candle. If you look carefully, you will also notice snow falling behind the windows (and behind the reels). Among the symbols there are the images of bows, raindeers, candles, Santa Claus, Christmas balls, cansy canes, and of course, presents.

While playing the game you feel as if you were taken inside the typical Christmas house. The warm atmosphere of this special holiday will accompany you throughout the gameplay and will surely bring you many positive thoughts.

When it comes to the details, the game offers 5 reels, 15 paylines, Wild symbols, Bonuses and Free Spins. How does it work? As most of the slots.

First, there are 4 kinds of Wilds which also serve as the multipliers. You can catch x2, x3, x4 and x5 multiplier, which not only boosts your winnings but also substitutes for all other symbols except Bonus. I’ve managed to catch this symbol many times and it helped me form many winning combinations.

Secondly, three different presents caught on the reels activate special Bonus Game. When this happens, you will have to pick up one of the presents and reveal your award.

Well, if you have some free time and would like to spend it on a nice gaming experience, you won’t regret playing “Merry Xmas”. It is quite ordinary when you compare it with other slots, but for me, it is the best Christmas-themed slot available on the market. It is not too sweet and not too childish and can be quite rewarding 😉

By the way, Merry Christmas, guys! I wish you many new slots and huge wins! Enjoy your free time!

Christmas is coming!

ghosts of christmas

There is no chance to escape from Chistmas rush. I’ve tried to do it many times, but I never suceeded in reaching that goal. No matter how hard you try, you have to take part in the craziness of pre-Christmas season. All those shiny shop malls, Christmas trees on the streets and in the shopping centres, TV commercials and people buying presents… No wonder that even I, so prefectly down-to-earth guy, started to think about Christmas. I would not be myself, if I didn’t correspond those experiences with my game choices:)

I’m not a great fan of most Santa Claus slots, so I was really happy to find a game which talks about Christmas but does not show a fat guy in red clothes. What is its name? “Ghosts of Christmas”!

“Ghosts of Christmas” is a charming 3D slot from Playtech. The game is loosely connected with the plot of popular “Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens. On the reels of the game you will find the symbols of funny Christmas ghosts, Scrooge, turkey, vintage clock, death and Bob Kracher. All icons are quite grotesque which turns the slot into a really funny experience.

If you are lucky while playing the game, you will be able to take advantage of different special features attached to the slot.

There is a Wild symbol in the shape of Scrooge holding a gold coin. It may replace all other symbols and forma many winning combinations.

Marley – green ghost, plays the role of a Scatter and may activate 15 or more Free Spins if you manage to catch at least three of them anywhere on the reels. What’s more each win completed in the Free Spin mode willl be multiplied bt 3. Number of Free Spin is selected by the player who has to click one of the Marleys found on the reels.

The special Ghost of Christmas Bonus game is triggered once you stop the reels with at least three consecutive clocks. Your task in the Bonus game is to choose of the three headstones and reveal the hidden prizes.

You will like “Ghosts of Christmas” if you liked “Christmas Carol”. The game fascinated me with its amusing theme and gorgeous graphics. Most of all, it is not a typical sweet Christmas slot, but a grotesque game, which makes you laugh and bring some positive thoughts.

If you miss holidays as much as I do…

then you need to try Wazdan’s “Beach Party”!

Two weeks ago I’ve told you a bit about my favourite classic slot from Wazdan. I have to admit that I’ve found some brand new games from this developer and they are even better than their older brothers and sisters 😉

As the days are getting shorter and darker, I felt the need to cheer myself up by spinning the reels of some crazy holiday-themed slot. I’ve chosen “Beach Party” and immediately fell in love with this game.

The slot is pretty simple. Its reels are filled with the images of ice cream, sexy girls, cool drinks and dart boards. All graphics look quite well and bring into mind laziness of the summertime.

What I like the most about this game are its easy and transparent rules. “Party Beach” has some basic special features such as Scatters, Wilds and Free Spins. There is no five pages long paytable and you do not have to study rules for two hours to know what you have to do to win.

Instead, you are presented with the list of simple guidelines: sexy girls are Wild and can replace all other symbols except Scatters; dart board plays the role of the Scatter and can activate 15 Free Spins. there is also a symbol of arrow which increases the multiplier. Nothing less and nothing more. Simple as that.

If you are seeking for a relief to your busy mind, you should definitely give this game a go. Thanks to the nice selection of basic special features and attractive graphics the slot is going to satisfy needs of most slot-lovers.

And most of all, it doesn’t show any dull fruit symbols, but quite attractive beach chicks  😉

Let your spirit soar with “Sea of Tranquility” slot!

sea_of_tranquility

Not long ago I found myself in a terrible state of autumn sadness. Do you know what I mean? All those pesimistic thoughts and a complete lack of energy. As usual, I tried to raise my spirits with some nice slots:) And luckily, I’ve found the one, which helped me forget about the outside world!

“Sea of Tranquility” from Williams Interactive can be used as the equivalent of great calmness. The reels of this 5-reel 30-payline slot are placed on the purple background which aim is to resemble the magical evening sky. All symbols presented on the game screen bring some esoteric allusions. What you may find on the reels are the images of owls, moons, fireflies, ships, a beautiful lady and a comet. The most stunning, however, is the music attached to the slot: delicate, subtle and totally out of this world, it will hypnosise you with its magical power!

Apart from the great appearance, the slot offers a great entertainment and is equipped with many interesting special features which always please the players.

As you play the game, you can take advantage of Scatters, Wilds, Free Spins and a Close Enough feature. In brief:

-comet is Wild and can replace all other symbols except the Bonus, the Wild symbol may expand over the whole reel;

-moon serves as the Scatter; if you catch at least two of them on adjacent reels, you will win up to 50 Free Spins with a different multiplier;

-Close Enough feature is activated when a Wild or a Scatter symbol appears within the Close Enough area. When it happens, the Wild expands over the reel and the Scatter counts towards any potential Free Spin triggering.

I really enjoyed playing this slot! It is one of the most beautiful games I’ve ever played. If you would like to add some magic to your everyday life, you must give this game a go:)

“1 Can 2 Can” – Love at First Sight!

1_can_2_can

I hate all classic fruit themed slots…

I’ve told you about it several times and I am a bit ashamed to admit that I’ve found the one that really matches my tastes: “1 Can 2 Can” from Next Gen company.

First of all: the game has such a great look that I don’t notice all those fruit! The reels are set at the heart of the tropical jungle: you can see some green trees, exotic flowers, waterfall and of course two toucans! Those two friendly birds are able to fly around the reels and eat some fruit stored on the game screen. Each time they are hungry, they crash chosen symbols and turn them into the ones needed to complement the winning combination. You don’t need to catch any Wild symbols – your Wilds will be created from random fruit eaten by the birds!

To be honest, I understand all actions taken by the toucans – if I could, I would also taste all those delicious fruit as they look really tasty!

The next thing that the toucans can do is to add some Scatter symbols on reels 2, 3 or 4. Each time you stop the reels, your flying companions will turn up on the reels and replace random symbols into Scatters. If you catch 3 Scatters on the game screen, You will win 10 Free Games during which toucans become much more hungry and add more Wilds for more wins.

I cannot get enough of this game!  Its mouth watering graphics and funny toucans are really amazing. And, after all, all those fruit serve only as decorations for standard card symbols, so maybe I am not getting crazy? Wishful thinking 🙂

Let me know what you think about this game. Have you already tried it?

Meet a Family of Friendly Zombies in “The Zombies” Slot!

the zombies

I’ve always loved all things connected with zombies: movies, books, comics, even slots. Some time ago, however, I’ve realised that all those zombie themed productions have got identical plot and concentrate on the same characters. And as usual, I got bored! Probably that explains my first sceptical approach towards “The Zombies”. I didn’t want to play another game with ugly monsters. You can imagine how shocked I was when I saw this crazy slot!

“The Zombies” shows the everyday life of green-skinned family of zombies. They lead the normal existence of simple bread eaters. There is a father zombie, his pretty wife and their two cute children. They all look really nice and…ordinary! The Zombies are presented doing their everyday chores: playing, cooking and cleaning. Among the symbols presented on the game screen you will find the images of flowers, newspapers, postal boxes and waste bins.

The game is available in two different modes: Power Game and Easy Game. The first one is announced with the appearance of the father next to the reels while the Easy Mode is represented by the mother. If you want to fight for more frequent but a bit smaller wins, you shall play Easy Game. If you wish for bigger wins, you should try Power Game.

What’s more, “The Zombies” offers many special features such as Zombie Bonus Games, Free Spins, Pick-a-Spin feature, Wilds, Scatters and Bonuses.

You will manage to trigger Zombie Bonus Party which equals 10 Free Spins if you catch three or more family symbols on the reels.

The Zombie Bonus Game, on the other hand, is activated each time you succeed in stopping the reels with the symbol of Parent Zombie meeting the Bad Zombie. During that game you will have to kill the Bad Zombie with a given weapon. It is a great fun but most of all, it can reward you with some great winnings thanks to the big multipliers!

I’ve played this game several times and I didn’t get bored with it – it’s a miracle! At the time when most of the games make me totally sick, “The Zombie” provided me with great entertainment and I think it will remain on the list of my favourite slots released this year.

If you haven’t played it yet, you shall definitely give this game a go!

“Pyrons” – Explosion of Winnings? Rather not…

pyrons

Hi!

I have to tell you about my last discovery! I’ve found a new slot from Yggdrasil – “Pyrons”. Have you ever tried Yggdrasil’s slots? If not, you have to do it, because Yggdrasil is one of the most innovative software providers available on the market.

But let’s concentrate on “Pyrons”.

I have to admit that I was really excited about this release. And at the first glance it seemed that the game deserved my anticipation as it looks totally crazy! On its reels you can see the glass balls filled with the standard fruit symbols drowned in the colourful explosive substances. You do not spin the reels like in the most slots. So how do you get the points? If you catch at least three matching symbols in the winning line, they are going to explode, disappear and leave an empty space for the next glass balls which are dropped down from the top of the game screen.  It is quite nice to look at and I felt really happy each time I managed to get those explosive winnings.

Unfortunately, despite the fantastic look, the game has one weak point: it has almost no special features.

The only thing it has to offer is the multiplier meter visible on the left side of the game screen. After each win your multiplier increases and it may boost your winnings up to 20 times. But the best thing about the multipliers is that they are able to actvate a special animation in which the blue flames spread over the whole game screen.

So, what is my general opinion about “Pyrons”? I think it won’t become one of my favourite slots. I prefer more exciting games which are able to entertain me with some Bonus Games or at least offer Scatters or Wilds.

I think I’ll stay with a bit older slot from Yggrasil – “Magic Mushrooms”. Maybe I’ll write about it in my next post 🙂

Best Autumn Slot? Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde!

dr.jekyll_and_mr.hyde_2b

Hi guys!

I’ve been asked recently about the best slot for a rainy weather. Is there anything suitable for wet and cold autumn evenings? I must admit that I didn’t know what to say. Do I have my favourite slot for such circumstances? For sure there is one slot that is a perfect choice for darker days: Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde!

Released earlier this year, this fantastic game had to wait for my approval almost three months. As almost everyone, during sunny summer days I had no taste for the gloomy atmosphere of Jekyll and Hyde story and found myself interested in more colourful and light themes: ice cream or bikini girls. So it was only now that I got aware of the beauty of Betsoft’s “Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde”.

What is so special about this slot?

First of all, its graphics. The game features 3D images of both characters, which will surely make you experience the whole mood of Stevenson’s story to the smallest detail. During the game you are taken to the dark streets of London where you can meet Mr Hyde and join him in his secret excursions. What is more, the game screen is placed on different backgrounds: you can play inside Dr Jekyll’s study or walk around the city.

The next great advantage lies in the number of special features. I like the idea of Wilds, Freenzy Bonus Games and multipliers. Thanks to those options, your time spent in the world of the game turns into a completely rewarding experience as there are so many different things happening at the time of your game that you simply strart to lose the contact with the outside world.

In short: if you are looking for a perfect slot for a slightly colder weather, try “Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” as it is this autumn must-play!

Lost Island – Slot for Demanding Players

lost_island_2bMy last posts were centered around the brand new slots. I’ve realised today that I haven’t written anything about my personal slot-tastes yet. That is why today I’m going to write a few words about one of my favourite slots: “Lost Island”.

“Lost Island” is a 5-reel and 20-payline slot from Net Entertainment. The first time I’ve seen that game, I thought: “finally a game for me!”. I think it was love at the first sight! The first thing that attracted my attention were the graphics. Good-looking, colourful, three dimensional symbols presenting the images which bring into mind the secret treasures hidden in the jungle. In general, the basic theme of this beautiful game is totally appealling: lost island, which keeps some artefacts of gone-by civilisation. Great theme for a slot, don’t you think so? While spinning the reels, you feel like a great adventurer on a secret mission in some distant and uncivilised land.

I am also amazed with the amount and quality of special features offered in that game. There is a Wild symbol in shape of lotus flower and a Scatter represented by the gold jewel. The Wild is able to replace all other symbols, while the Scatter may trigger some extra Free Spins. But it’s not all. During all Free Spins, lotus flower automatically appears at the central position on reel 3 and remains there till the end of chargeless spins. What’s more, Wilds can occur as single or stacked symbols and they always bring you a nice multiplier.

For some of you all those features may look quite ordinary, but believe me, “Lost Island” offers you something more than great winnings: it is able to take you on an exciting excursion and make you lose contact with the outside world. Each time when I find myself in a bad mood, I start playing this fantastic slot. It is the only game that is able to influence my mind.

Another Great Slot from Thunderkick!

sunny_scoopsLast week I was extremely excited with “Fruit Warp” – a beautiful 3D slot from Thunderkick. I didn’t know then that this crazy company has already released a next brand-new slot: “Sunny Scoops”. As the name suggests, it focuses on the theme of ice-cream and it looks really fantastic!

Once you start the game, you are going to be overwhelmed with the quality of graphics – they are just perfect! You won’t see any typical reels or an ordinary game screen: what you have here are three ice cream cones (reels) and many ice cream flavours (symbols). Strawberry, toffee, orange, chocolate – you may have all yummy flavours with a single spin!

Are there any special features, you may ask. Of course, there are! If you catch three matching flavours on any vertical payline, you are going to spin a special Bonus Wheel thanks to which you will be able to win a multiplier or a Bonus Game. 

During each Bonus Game your task will be to built the tallest ice cream and to collect the biggest amount of multipliers. Your ice cream will be eaten after each non-win spin, but don’t worry: if you win something, you will get a delicious sprinkle!

Now that the holidays are over, some of us start to experience strange sadness. If you feel  blue, then you must try “Sunny Scoops”. This game will raise your spirit and give you an opportunity to collect some really nice prizes.
