This week was full of events: Microgaming is to release a huge amount of slots this month. Casinos steal your money! What is wrong to Play’N GO? Let’s figure it out.

New release from Crazy Tooth Studio

Seven 7’s slot logo

A Microgaming’s partner, Crazy Tooth Studio, released slot called Seven 7’s, on February 18, 2020. This provider is not afraid of producing exclusive and creative slots to surprise us. It looks similar to the old theatre of 19th-century. The game comes with a single giant reel to start with, but it expands up to 7 reels through the re-spin option.

The bet size varies from 20 p/c to £/€10 per spin and the RTP rating is 96.6%. During the game, you have to catch a 7 symbol. If it lands on the reel, another reel is added; if 7 or a 2x-icon land on the reels again, then the re-spins continue. You can get up to 7 Seven symbols using a maximum of 7 reels.

Well, Seven 7’s differs from the slots we get used to seeing on casino websites a lot. It looks unusual: there is just one reel, one symbol, and one pay line on the screen, but it will be impossible to pull you back.

Space Enigma is a new upcoming slot powered by All41Studios. The developers decided to create a clone of Starburst, a very popular slot from NetEnt. It looks like a gemstone/space themed combo.

The grid consists of 5 reels and only 10 winning lines, paying both ways.  Space Enigma has medium volatility and an RTP rating of 96.27%. Also, the game awards you a decent payout of up to $100,000 per spin (1,000x the stake).

Unfortunately, there are only 2 features:

  • Expanding Star Wilds
  • Re-spins.

There is not much to talk about the design. Playing the slot, you can see just a mix of gemstones that take different geometric shapes. Well, if you are tired of NetEnt’s game, Space Enigma slot looks like an alternative to Starburst. Play and enjoy it!

Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair from Thunderkick

Beat the Beast Kraken’s Lair slot

Kraken’s Lair is one of the Thunderkick’s new ‘Beat the Beast’ slot series. The company is planning to launch a collection of five classic games in the series. According to the provider, ‘made for the brave’ titles will introduce you to different terrifying beasts; The mythical Kraken is the first one.

All these slots come with a standard 5*3 grid and 9 fixed pay lines. Kraken’s Lair is a classic game, offering amazing visuals: on the background, there are many sunken ships and all the icons in the game provide a high definition.

The most expensive icons are Krakens:

  • The Gold Mid-Kraken awards 50x the stake for five-of-a-kind
  • The big purple Kraken gives you 500x for five-of-a-kind

The golden Kraken Emblem is a wild and a scatter simultaneously. Also, it can trigger the Expanding Win feature, being a part of a winning combo.

A Free Spins bonus works as usual: 3 or more Kraken Scatters trigger the bonus game with 10 free spins. The bonus game can be retriggered an unlimited number of times.

Beat the Beast: Kraken’s Lair is the first slot of the series with the potential of 7,777x the stake.

The game is available for players since Feb. 19.

Play’n GO continues creating replicas

 

Play’n GO released Dawn of Egypt, which is the latest title of 52-game series that were planned. We have already reviewed Legacy of Dead slot, which turned out to be a replica of the Book of Ra game from Novomatic. Now, Play’n GO imitates its own title – Legacy of Egypt. The developers have just changed some characteristics, numbers, and symbols, pretending they have created a new title with a new idea.

As we all know, Play’n GO does its best when it goes about Egypt-themed slots. Dawn of Egypt is promoted as Legacy of Egypt’s sequel. To be honest, we become confused more and more every time, when the provider releases new Egyptian slots. Let’s describe the similarities and differences of these 2 slots.

Dawn of Egypt has a 5*3 grid with 10 active pay lines (in its turn, Legacy of Egypt offers 30 lines). In Dawn of Egypt bet size ranges between 10 p/c and £/€100; in Legacy of Egypt from €0.30 to €90. The Wild symbol in both slots is a scarab, which offers different awards (100x for 5 of them in Dawn of Egypt and only 16,6x  in Legacy of Egypt).

The potential is the same – 5,000x your stake.

The main similarity appears when it comes to Free Spins. The free spins rounds start when 3 or more Pyramids land on the reels (both slots are extremely teasing ones, giving 2 scatters quite frequently). 3 scatters trigger the Wheel of the Gods, a spinning wheel, which determines how many Free Spins are awarded.

legacy of egypt free spins bonus

One difference has been created: in Legacy of Egypt slot, there are multipliers above the reels that are awarded randomly at each spin. In the Dawn of Egypt game, there are special symbols instead. Two Wild Scatter Symbols in both games trigger additional Pyramid Spins.

Therefore, we have to say again, that Play’n GO is a decent provider that offers a great number of exclusive games! However, they should stop stealing and creating slot replicas. They seem to become addicted, don’t you think so?

Unsuccessful release from Boomerang Games

wild-joker-stacks-slot

Boomerang Games released their new title – Wild Joker Stacks, representing poor graphics and sluggish animation. Playing on a laptop, tablet or mobile phone, you will get freezing game process; so, you will have to possess yourself, if you want to try this one. It may be a bad attempt to imitate a retro style, who knows. Let us describe some slot features.

The icons are typical for classic slots: BARs, fruits, bells and Sevens. The game grid consists of 5 reels and 3, 4, or 5 rows, which can be changed at any time. In addition, players can change multipliers for x2, x3, or x4. It influences game volatility and RTP rating (from 95.6% to 97.78%). After all, different coin options are available; it is too complicated.

Ok, the only simple part about the slot is the Bonus Game. 3 Scatters trigger 9 Free Spins. Besides, they award you 100x for 5 of them on the reels. During the bonus game, all the multipliers are doubled, and free spins can be retriggered.

The game is already available. Well, share your opinion with us.

Vavada Casino steals your money

Cazino-Vavada logo

As it was revealed, Vavada casino operators changed the RTP in Book of Dead slot from Play’n GO. We all know that Book of Dead is the most popular slot of the provider, and taking advantage of this, Vavada Casino decided to make some money out of thin air! The casino operator built its advertising company around this slot machine. What’s the hitch?

Book of Dead is the most popular slot on Vavada Casino. The operator changed the RTP of the game reducing it to 84%, instead of 96,21% from the provider. Thus, it has become impossible to win playing Book of Dead slot on Vavada Casino!

The catastrophe is that an RTP rating of 84% makes chances to win close to zero.

Vavada Casino changed Book of Dead RTP rating for their own benefit. It is obvious. They were counting on the fact that no-one would check the RTP, and made their players look like idiots.

Onlinecasinopolice reminds you to be careful and play accredited casinos only!

UK Gambling Commission informs that the maximum allowed stake on online casino games would be £2. The final decision on the question is expected until next August. The decision is connected to their ongoing work to reduce the risks of gambling-related harm.

As we have already told several months ago, the UKGS limited land-based fixed-odds up to £2 in April 2019. Thus, British operators’ share prices fell.

The UK Gambling Commission also claims that the prohibition of gambling ads on television could help in battling gambling addiction in the country. The UKGC has started a partnership with Twitter. The two will create guidance that will help users to limit the amount of gambling content on Twitter.
