May Casino Promotional Offers

It’s that time of the year again for the Fortune Lounge Cruise promotion, the Ariana Promotion is running right now at Roxy Palace Casino and there’s also an extended online slot tournament called The Accumulator currently in-play over at Crazy Vegas Casino. These great promos are running for a limited time only and you need to sign up to these casinos to take advantage of each operator’s promotion.

The Accumulator online slot tournament got underway on May 1st at Crazy Vegas Casino. This event will continue to run right up until the end of the month (May 31st 2015) and a total of 25 players will all walk away with some kind of guaranteed cash prize. The initial prize pool needs to make it to $/€/£500 and then when it has reached its target, it will gradually climb as more and more players make deposits and continue to play on ANY of the games in the real money mode.

“This is a mammoth tournament in the sense that the more people who play and depending on how often they play, the more they can win at the end of the tournament. It’s an amazing opportunity for those players who enjoy playing our video slots and who put a lot in and expect a lot out. We can’t wait to announce the 25 winners of the prize pool,” said a spokesperson for the casino, Harry Von Schlussel.

Over at Roxy Palace, the operator is giving away two tickets for a seven night stay at the Five Star Atlantis Palm Hotel in Dubai. You get to stay in an Ocean Deluxe twin room with an Activity or Spa Package worth more than $/€/£600, plus a generous $/€/£1,000 cash bonus. This money will be credited to the lucky winners’ Roxy Palace Casino account. To earn tickets into the main prize draw, wager $/€/£25.00 on the new Ariana slot machine, or earn 1 ticket for every $/€/£25.00 that you wager on the Mermaids Millions, Fish Party or Dolphins Quest slot machines. The more you play the more tickets you can earn and the main prize draw will take place on May 28th, 2015.

The other notable promotion running throughout May is the famous Fortune Lounge Cruise promotion. The main prize includes 50 double cruise tickets, as well as casino credits, cash back bonuses, rewards points, designer travel sets and much more totalling $/€/£100,000. The Fortune Lounge Cruise Promotion is running right now at sites like Platinum Play Casino, 7 Sultans Casino, Royal Vegas Casino, Vegas Palms Casino and Euro Palace Casino.

Round Up of Events from Around the Net

We couldn’t go without mentioning about the lucky Canadian player who recently won the Mega Jackpot on Microgaming’s Mega Moolah slot machine over at Royal Vegas Mobile Casino on April 9th. He won a record-breaking CA$7,561,773 (approximately £4,092,220 / €5,375,695.08) while playing on his smartphone or tablet device and this is the largest ever jackpot paid out to a mobile casino player.

The Head of Casino at Microgaming, John Quinn, said “We’ve been watching the progressive ticker grow substantially over the last few weeks; anticipation was building as to when it was going to strike!” He then went on to say, “Once again the jackpot was hit via a mobile device; it really is a sign of today’s industry and how prevalent mobile is! Congratulations to Mark A on becoming one of the biggest jackpot winners in Microgaming’s history.”

Some of the latest slots to have arrived in casinos over the past few weeks were developed by some of the world’s leading online casino software providers. When you next sign in to your favourite Playtech casino you’ll be able to find a new online slot called Foxy Fortunes (5 reels and 25 winning paylines).

When you next sign in to your favourite Microgaming casino you’ll be able to find a new online slot called Rabbit in the Hat (5 reels and 9 winning paylines) and also Dragon’s Myth (5 reels and 20 winning paylines). The Dragon’s Myth slot was actually made by a game developer called Rabcat. You can launch these new slots over Microgaming’s Flash, download and Quickfire platforms, which means that you can also play on these games at sites like bgo Vegas, Casino Euro and Mr Green Casino and not just at casinos which are powered entirely by Microgaming (e.g. Gaming Club Casino, Jackpot City Casino, Crazy Vegas Casino and Royal Vegas Casino).

IGT Interactive’s latest slot machine is called Natural Powers (5 reels and 40 winning paylines) and this one can now be found at Mr Green Casino and Realtime Gaming recently launched a new slot called Ghost Ship (5 reels and 25 winning paylines). This new RTG slot is available now at sites like Lucky Red Casino, Casino Titian, Slots Jungle, Manhattan Slots, ClubWorld Casinos, Silver Oak Casino and WinPalace Casino. There was also a brand new 3D slot from Betsoft Gaming called Pinocchio (5 reels and 15 winning paylines) which can now be found at sites like Tropezia Palace Casino, Drake Casino and Gossip Slots.

In other news, a modest range NetEnt games recently found their way into two more online casinos. This means that you can now find a selection of NetEnt slot machines over at Slots Magic (formerly Jackpot Party Casino) and also at bwin.party online casino. Speaking about this was the Group Director at bwin.party, Golan Shaked. He said “We embarked upon a journey to enhance our casino offering by focusing on a content and gaming platform upgrade.”

He then finished by saying “We have been very impressed with the NetEnt content catalogue and the graphic quality of their work. I am sure that the new titles will work very well alongside our exclusive proprietary games.” These comments came from the official NetEnt website.

NetEnt in the News

Net Entertainment is one of our favourite online casino software providers and we always like to keep a close eye on them and see what they have been up to. It seems as though March was another big month for this award-winning software provider and in this article we will be discussing some of the main highlights.

The company announced on Friday 20th March 2015 that it had signed a new licensing agreement with a major online gaming company called Gamesys. Under the terms of this new partnership, NetEnt will supply numerous online slot machines to Gamesys and its growing list of fully licensed gambling portals. Two of their flagship brands include Virgin Games & JackpotJoy.

“Gamesys and NetEnt share a commitment to delivering the ultimate player experience and I am confident that NetEnt’s world-class slots and casino games will contribute to their continued success as one of the world’s leading online gaming businesses,” said Enrico Bradamante, MD of NetEnt Malta Ltd and Chief of European Market Operations. He continued, “Further, Gamesys has a large presence in regulated markets, which is well aligned with our growth strategy”.

On March 23rd, NetEnt launched a brand new online slot machine called Spiñata Grande and this awesome new Mexican themed slot machine can now be found in several top NetEnt powered casinos such as Mr Green Casino and Casino Euro. Other top NetEnt casinos include Ladbrokes Games, Betfair Arcade, Casumo Casino and bgo Vegas. This new 3D style slot has regular symbols AND Colossal Symbols, the latter of which can cover up to 9 symbol positions on the reels. Also keep an eye out for Colossal Wild Symbols which can show up during the Free Spins Bonus.

“Spiñata Grande is a real treat that blends fun and unique graphics, excitement and win anticipation against the backdrop of a fiesta. This release is much anticipated as the feedback we’ve received is overwhelmingly positive and we’re confident its fun and happy artwork will offer a great entertainment experience,” said NetEnt’s Chief Product Officer, Simon Hammon.

Just two days later, on March 25th, it was announced that one lucky player from Norway had won the Mega Jackpot on a progressive jackpot slot machine from NetEnt called Mega Fortune. “We’re only three months into the year and there have been two significant pooled jackpots drop. The life-changing sums on offer act as a perfect way to boost acquisition rates and retention levels for operators,” said Hammon.

The lucky winner said, “I'm not superstitious, but Friday 13th was a strange day. I accidently deposited 1000 EUR instead of 1000 Norwegian kroner. I tried to stop the transaction, but it was too late, so perhaps it was destiny!”

Then on March 27th, NetEnt announced that it had signed another new licensing agreement, this time with the Danish Lottery provider, Danske Spil, which is owned by the Danish government and is part of the World Lottery Association (WLA). NetEnt also then made one final announcement in March - that it has signed a similar licensing agreement with one of the largest gaming operators in Spain, CODERE. These are just a few of the major talking points from March and we have a feeling that April will be just as busy for this impressive online casino software provider.

What to Play in March

Several fun new online slot machines recently arrived in casinos and these games have been produced by leading online casino software providers like Realtime Gaming, Microgaming, Net Entertainment and IGT Interactive, and also by various other leading online casino software providers.

This new RTG slot has 5 reels and 33 winning paylines and it is the third in an epic trilogy of similar branded slots from RTG. This slot has regular Wild Symbols, Stacked Wild Symbols and Scatter Symbols and a second screen bonus round called the Stooge Picks Bonus which will automatically trigger when reels 2, 3 and 4 (the three centre reels) are filled entirely with Stacked Wild Symbols.

A Free Spins Bonus Round called the Lucky Stooge Feature can also trigger a rewarding Free Spins Bonus.

IGT Interactive recently launched two new online slot machines. One of these new IGT slots is called Prowling Panther and the other new slot is a new ‘wide area’ MegaJackpots progressive jackpot slot called MegaJackpots Siberian Storm. The non-progressive version of this slot has actually been around for a couple of years now, which means that some of you may already be familiar with this game. The only difference between the two versions is that this latest version has a progressive jackpot to play for.

The new Prowling Panther slot and the new Siberian Storm slot both have 5 reels and 720 ways to win per spin. This layout of the reels is otherwise known as the MultiwayXtra format.
