Amazing New Horror Slots

I spent the whole day catching up on the latest new online slots, of which these ones were actually released at the beginning of the month at Intercasino.

Well these new Frightmare slots are absoluetly amazing. Anyone who likes horror movies will love these slots games. There's nothing else quiet like them.

They are similar in game play to the award winning Marvel Slots and also in common they have the randomly won progressive jackpots. I actually won one of those jackpots in free play mode and was treated to an ugly Zombie trying to get at me!

Zone of the Zombies was my favourite of the 3 and especially the shooting Zombie bonus game. You have to decide what order to shoot the Zombies before one of them lashes out to kill you.

Witches and Warlocks also had a great bonus game where you choose2 spells to go into battle against your opponent. Its kind of like a shot arcadde style fight game and the spells damaged your opponent and you can see by how much as its shown in a lifebar. You only get to spells and hopefully kill your opponent to get extra bonus prize.

Vampire Bats doesn't have a bonus game but the free spins feature was really good. Two of the reels changed to coffins with thelids opening a closing in a spooky way.

Will they add more to the Frightmare range in the future? I certainly hope so, I think theres room for maybe a Ghost/ Haunted House scary slot game. Maybe have a Ghostbusters type bonus game, that would be cool. :)

Anyone who has any comments on these slots please do so in the Frightmare Forum Thread.

Currently 51st in The $10,000 Reel Deal Slots Tournament

The Freeroll Reel Deals Slots Tournament has been running all this month at English Harbour so I thought it was about time I participated
.

This was the first time I had played the Reel Deal Slot Game so at the same time I did a review for Slots Jam . It turned out to be a really enjoyable slots game, mostly because of the bonus game which is based on the popular TV Show Deal or No Deal.

At the time of entering the tournament there were already well over 14,600 participants, which isn't surprising given a guaranteed prize fund of $10,000.

My strategy was to play as many spins at the lowest betting stakes, say 150 spins, and then increase the coin size as I felt it was more likely I would trigger the bonus round. For me the game was triggering approximately on average every 200 spins.

In the bonus game you choose your own briefcase. Then you open 6 more revealing there worth from 10 cents up to $1000. I was max betting all lines at 10 cents a line so $2.00 per spin

After opening the first 6 briefcases I had revealed only 1 high amount of $100 on the right side of the screen which had values ranging from $7.50 to $1000.

I was then offered $66.09 by the banker for my briefcase or the chance to open another 5 boxes.
The banker makes you a an offer based on the likelihood that the first briefcase I chose as my own contains a high value. If I felt my briefcase has the $1000 I would obviously keep going until I've open all briefcases and just left with my own one and keep that amount.

Based on the fact there were 6 higher amounts stillleft on the board I thought I would take the chance to reveal more boxes.

I run pretty good with the highest amount I revealed was $300. The banker was now offereing me $91.40.

That seemed a fairly good offer, there were still plenty of low priced boxes on the board so I carried on.

Next round I was then offered $105.29 or the chance to open 3 more boxes.
Values left on the board were:
0.1
0.3
0.6
1.5
2.00
5.00
20.00
50.00
75.00
500
1000

I closed the deal for the $105.29 and it was then revealed my box held $50 so I did a good deal!

I carried on playing and when betting 25 cents per coin I won a total of over $858. In that bonus game I started out really bad picking a lot of high value boxes but I had decided from the offset to go all the way to end, however with, I think it was 3 boxes left and still the top prize of $2500 on the board and the next highest $75 I decided to do the deal as that prize alone of $858 would put me in a money winning position in the slots tournament.

I finished the session ranked 51st which is a placing within the prize money zone for $50. If my tournament ranking stays in the top 88 I will win the $50 so with only 2 days left of the tournament to run I have a good chance of maintaining that winning position.

Here's a screenshot of my ranking which is shown in the bottom left hand corner.



For anyone interested you can have 2 bites at this prize money by playing signing up as a real money player at either English Harbour or SuperSlots . You don't have to upload any money but I always upload some as common courtesy for them providing me with free slots tournaments as well as other freeroll tournament games.

Jewel In the Crown

I played the freeroll slots tournament today called Jewel In the Crown at both English Harbour and SuperSlots. To participate you have to play the very girlie slot game Princess Jewels.

The tournament is free to enter and you get the chance to win real money and first prize pays $100, second prize $70, and third place get $30 in total the top 10 places receive a payout.

At the time of entering the English Harbour tournament there were 7592 participants. I managed to get to rank 31st by getting my starting balance of $400 up to $798. I won most of the money in the bonus wheel spinning game.
In total I only played for about 10 - 15 minutes. After a few spins of no or little wins I thought I may as well go for broke and started max betting at $10 coins on all 9 paylines, so at $90 a spin I soon bust out.

I then had a go at SuperSlots just to see if I could get lucky. I faired better this time around reaching 14th position by getting my balance from $400 up to over $1400 but I was still $500 off a top 10 place and the luck run out on the maximum bet spins.

The reason I was playing the game was primarily because it was new slots game and we needed a review for it on Slots Jam.

2 New Slots Casinos Added to Slots Jam

Today we added 2 new slots casinos to Slots Jam. Both casinos are powered by the same software provider, Parlay Entertainment so alot of the games will be the same. Both will hopefully prove popular as they are currently accepting players from all U.S States.

First up is Winward, which as a casino name doesn't fill me with excitement. Anyway, they are currently offering a very good sign up bonus of with a 100% match bonus up to $1000, which is very nice.

The casino is interesting because you can choose to either play the casino games by downloading there software or by playing the no download flash casino games. I though I'd give the flash no download option a try as I haven't done that before and the way the site is set it it seems obvious this is what they want players to try out.

From the lobby I clicked on "Featured Slots" and up popped and loaded a 5 reel slot game called Trolling for Treasure. I don't know what I was expecting, but I was very impressed. I think because in the lobby the pictures of games look a little hazy, I was maybe expecting a lesser quality of no download game graphics. The graphics quality is as good as any download casino.

I then closed the game and tried the "Slots" section and that was a pretty standard real casino style slot standard slot machine.

It did seem to take a little longer to load some games. Also browsing through the lobby takes a little longer and this will vary depending upon your own connection speed.

As I had clicked on free play I was expecting to be able to play the whole range of free slots, but it appears I get to play just one standard slots game and one featured slots game. When I went to the lobby and choose another slots game from the slots lobby they all said I had insuffieincent funds.

Oh well, I would have been nice to try out a few more free slots. We will be reviewing each game they do offer in real money and adding to the site over the coming weeks.

They also offer wireless gaming for over 200 mobile devices. That all looks very interesting, playing slots on my mobile, very exciting and something that will surely grow in popularity over time, but for now I'lll leave that for another day.

Next up we have added Slots Village. I'll give that full trial tomorrow.

2 New Million Dollar Slot Jackpots

I recieved notification today that Microgaming 5 reel, 9 payline King Cashalot's jackpot has risen over $1 million dollars. At the time of writing it was $1,110,295.63. We have the record of the highest payout for this slot game being at $1,218,298.00, so you could argue this one could payout at any time. The jackpot is typically won at a rate of once a month and its now just over 3 months since it last paid out the progressive jackpot.

Anyone interested in trying there luck I recommend for beginners Platinum Play Casino . For players already used to playing online see at the base of the King Cashalot review page for which sign up offer most appeals as the casinos themselves are fairly similar. Of course we offer full reviews of each so you can make the best choice before signing up. This slot game is well worth playing as the fixed coin value is just 0.05 per coin. Also, Microgaming casinos accept U.S players from most states.

Upon checking the jackpot amount for KingCashalot via our Progressive Jackpots page which lists all the jackpot tickers, I noticed a Playtech software slots game has also joined the ranks of a million dollar slot in the last couple of days , and that is Gold Rally, which is a 9 reel, 8 payline slot game, which is something different.
Best place to play this $2 fixed coin value game is at City Club Casino. Although they unfortunately no longer accept U.S players.

3 new online slots games.

I added new reviews today of 3 brand new online slot games which were released on November 1st at Intercasino the Cryptologic software powered online casino.

As has been the case with most of there latest new online slots they are all multi payline and one is a very different kind of slot game that you may either love or hate.

First up were 2, 5 reel, 25 payline slot games, Thai Sunrise and one for the lady slots player Thunder from Down Under which comes with a male stripper theme.

The third slots game is one based on an actual video game of the same name and its Cubis Slots, which is a similar thing that they did with a more well known video game in the Bejeweled Slots Game which is one I prefered as it at least appeared to have some sort of reels.

Could this Cubis slots be taking it a little to far and still calling it a slots game? I'd be interested in any players opinions on this. I set up a post in our forum, so feel free to post in the thread 3 New Intercasino Slots - Is 1 even a slots game???,, all these games can be played for free.

As you can see from the screenshots its not a slot game with reels. Anyway, check out the review and if it interests you have a go at playing it and give us some feedback.

Goodbye to RaceTrack Casino

We had the first casualty for a slotsjam promoted casino from the September 30th U.S online gambling bill today with the announcement that RaceTrack Casino has closed
with the reason given that most of its players were in the US. So with the gambling bill and Playtech being a stock market listed company they had decided to close all U.S players accounts and not accept U.S players for the time being. Any existing players have had there accounts moved to City Club Casino which is my preferred Playtech software casino anyway, although it is not currently accepting U.S players.

We are very choosy with the online casinos we choose to add to Slotsjam.com, however RaceTrack was a relatively new casino and considered a sister site to City Club where all the same slot games can be found so there's no real loss to any slots players other than maybe taking advantage of bonuses offered by each casino.

Welcome to the Slots Jam Blog

A big warm welcome to all vistors to the new Slots Jam blog. I thought this would be a good idea to keep any vistors interested in the latest updates to slotsjam.com as well as key and interesting going ons in the gambling and more specifically online slots world.
