Mr Green Casino Kicks Off £1,000,000 Festive Quest Promotion

Mr Green Christmas Quest

Advent – it’s that time of the year where children (and many adults) everywhere wake up and open the next door on a calendar, only to receive as a reward a sickly sweet and kind of stale piece of chocolate. The countdown to Christmas really is a magical time of year!

For the countdown to Christmas in 2017, however, Mr Green Casino has something special on offer. Instead of 24 days of sub-par chocolate, the world famous online and mobile casino is giving its players the chance to cash in on a special 45 day advent promotion, during which they’ll be able to join a quest for £1,000,000 worth of Christmas goodies.

That’s right, we’re at the start of the Mr Green £1,000,000 Festive Quest!


 

The £1,000,000 Festive Quest

The story behind this promotion is that Santa has visited the Mr Green mansion, and on his hurry out, he’s dropped presents and goodies everywhere. While that might have put a massive thorn in Father Christmas’s side, it’s great news for those of us stopping by the mansion over the next few weeks. There’s over £1,000,000 worth of prizes and goodies just lying around, and Mr Green is planning to do the decent thing and share them with his players.

The best thing about this promotion is that it’s available to all players at Mr Green, no matter your preference of games. This means that whether you’re a slots and casino player, sportsbook bettor, or live casino gamer, you can take part in this one of a kind Christmas countdown.

If you want to join up to be part of this promotion – and let’s be honest, why wouldn’t you want to? – you simply need to find the offer at the promotional pages of the Mr Green website, and join up. Each day of the promotion, your personalised quest page will be updated with the daily offer, giving you the chance to opt in or out for each bonus, promotion or prize offering.

 

What Can You Win?

mr green mascotSeeing as this is a kind of mystery/quest promotion, Mr Green is keeping his cards pretty close to his chest in terms of what he’s offering as prizes in this promotion exactly; you have to start you own quest to find out what’s on offer each day. All we can tell you right now is the kinds of prizes which will be on offer.

At the more standard and low value end of the spectrum, there’s be deposit bonuses and free spins to be claimed (and free bets on sports if you’re into that kind of thing). If it’s simply free cash you’re after, then you can look forward to the cash drops and raffles going on. For those competitive players, you’ll be able to take part in tournaments and wager races. The very luckiest players of all will be those cashing in on the prize draws which hold things like gadgets, holidays and more in store.

This is 45 days of ridiculous prizes, and you have all the way up to New Year’s Eve (31st December) to join the quest for yourself and cash in!

What And Who Are The Phone Billing Payment Intermediaries?

PayForIt SmartphoneLet’s be honest, we don’t understand the vast majority of the technology we use on a day to day basis. For example, you’re probably reading this on a smartphone or tablet and I bet you don’t REALLY understand how it works. Most of the time it’s OK to not fully understand the systems that are working away to make 21st century life possible, but there are other times when it is actually useful to have a handle on things.

And so, in our apparently unending discussion of phone bill deposits, we come to the topic of payment intermediaries — the all-important middlemen you never realised were so integral to your phone billing. In this post, we’ll introduce you to the basic principle of what payment intermediaries are and enlighten you as to who exactly these special and important companies are.


 

What Are Payment Intermediaries?

When you make a phone bill deposit, you might just assume that your phone network provider is sending cash directly to your chosen casino. However, phone companies tend to be too busy being phone companies to worry about the micro-transactions each of their users are making to phone bill casinos. So, they tend to palm off this work to middlemen, who take the payments in bulk from networks and dribble them through to casinos.

Yup, there’s a mysterious third man in the transaction, who aggregates payments, working between the customer, networks and casinos to iron out technical and legal issues. If the payment intermediaries are doing their jobs correctly, you’ll hardly notice them doing their jobs at all! But how exactly does it all work?

 

How Payment Intermediaries Work

PayForIt PaymentThe most basic element of the payment intermediary business model is the billing engine – i.e. the means by which it takes money from the user to deposit at casinos. The most successful payment intermediaries are those, which have the billing engines that are easiest to integrate into the casinos’ platforms. The bits of these you don’t see are the analytics tools, which allow the companies using these payment intermediaries to analyse data about how the payments are being used.

Once they have the technology in place, intermediaries approach mobile networks to set up relationships which they can then use as a selling point when they’re trying to sell their products to casinos. It is then the payment intermediaries’ job to ensure that the payments between networks and casinos run smoothly and that they are in line will all the latest regulations and rules.

 

Who Are The Payment Intermediaries?

There’s a very good chance that you’ve already heard of Boku. After all, it is the biggest payment intermediary there is and it is often branded at the casinos at which it features. Yet, there are many other companies, which offer a similar service without being so overtly involved with the operation. Many of these companies are actually owned by phone network providers or casino operators to bring the whole process in-house.Payment Intermediaries

To name just a couple of these companies, you’re looking at the likes of Bango, ImpulsePay, Dialogue, txtNation and Oxygen8. Although these might all sound like white rappers from an early 2000s rude-boy music group, they’re all in fact the companies that make the payments you take for granted every day.

Play’N Go Has Launched It’s Big Win Cat Slot — Better Than Expected

Play'N Go Big Win Cat Logo Another month, another Play’N Go slot launch. Over the past few months, the games coming out from the developer have been disappointingly hit and miss, meaning hopes were not so high this weekend when Play’N Go’s latest game – Big Win Cat – finally hit casinos. Luckily, expectations have been upended by a game which is surprisingly very playable! We’ve got the lowdown on this launch and all the information about what you can expect from this new mobile slot.


 

About The Big Win Cat Slot

Compounding the low expectations for the game was the fact that the theme sounded like it was simply going to evoke many of the tired old tropes of ‘Asia’ that have been well and truly worn out in online and mobile slots through the years. We’re happy to report, however, that the fears we had about the theme came out to be totally unfounded.

Instead of simply being based around the idea of ‘Asia,’ the slot is actually set within an Asian novelty shop. This allows the game to have a bit more of a tongue in cheek approach to the subject matter, with reels adorned with flowery fans, kitsch collectibles, plastic goldfish and of course, one of those famous waving cats. It’s almost a meta comment on the gambling’s industry with all things Asian and how we’ve taken symbols and icons outside their original context to make them commercial products.

The game itself keeps things simple, featuring just three reels and five paylines. On the 3×3 reels, symbols often appear stacked, making wins almost inevitable. There’s beauty in the simplicity of the game, which employs a few minimal bonus features so effectively that they really work with the game’s design to give the game a real buzz.

 

Features To Look Out For

Big Win Cat Gameplay While we’re banging on about simplicity, we should stress that there’s plenty of ways for winning opportunities (and wins themselves) to be boosted. The Cat symbol is a wild and on a 3×3 slot, these can prove even more valuable than in larger games. There’s also the stacked symbols feature: not only can any symbol appear stacked on any reel, but when this occurs and results in a win, the stacked reel stays sticky while the other two re-spin, increasing your chances of winning even more!

The best way to make money in this slot, however, is with the Full House feature. Since this is a relatively small game, with only nine total positions for symbols to appear in, and stacked symbols are highly likely to occur, it is possible for all positions to be taken up with all the same symbols. Not only will this Full House result in a huge win (bigger, of course, depending on the symbol which triggered it), it will also trigger a spin on a multiplier wheel, where your win can be supersized up to 30x the original. This is the feature all players will be looking out for as they play.

The slot has just launched this weekend, so look out for Big Win Cat at all good Play’N Go casinos now!

Goldilocks And The Wild Bears Mobile Slot Reviewed — Goldilocks Goes Crazy!

Goldilocks Feature ImageYou know how the story goes… a blonde haired little girl named Goldilocks wanders into the woods and stumbles upon a house. She sticks her nosy little nose into all of the belongings of the bear family, finding Papa Bear’s chair too hard and Mama Bear’s too soft, Papa’s porridge too hot and Mama’s porridge too cold. Real nuisance, isn’t it? In the slot world, Goldilocks drives the Bears wild!


 

Gameplay

Goldilocks and the Three Bears is composed of five reels and 25 paylines. The game has a rated payout percentage of 97.84%, which is really high when compared to other slots on the shelf. The main driver of wins are the two wilds in the base game. The first is a normal wild that replaces other symbols to complete winning paylines — this is the bears’ cottage symbol. The second wild — the bowl of porridge — comes with multipliers. You could double or even quadruple your win!

Goldilocks Small Win

Bets start from 25p and can go up to £100 per spin. Goldilocks and the Three Bears is a relatively steady-paced game, in that wins don’t come particularly quickly or slowly. I’d say, you can expect base game wins every three to five spins or so. Hence, be ready to play for at least 30 to50 spins at a time. Choose a bet level that you can sustain as it takes a few Wild symbols and extra spins bonus before you break even and start to flourish.

Goldilocks Super Big Win

The paytable in the game is not to be snuffed at. The low-value symbols (10, J, Q, K and Ace) pay out about three to 20x your wager. However, the three Bears are much better money makers. Five Papa Bear symbols can multiply your wager 250x! The maximum prize even goes at 1,000x your stake, if only you could line up give Wild symbols in a row…

 

Bonus Features

The premise of the story is that Goldilocks meddles with the bear family’s belongings, so much so that they get really mad. If three or more Goldilocks symbols appear, the bears even turn Wild! Usually, you’d turn one or two bears wild at a time. Coupled with the wild symbols that are already on the screen, the feature can be quite lucrative. Your win potential during these stints increase quite significantly and you’d suddenly find yourself with few tens or even 100x your wager within seconds.

Goldilocks Additional Spins

The feature above can only be triggered during the extra spins rounds. These extra spins are also triggered by three Goldilocks symbols. The first three Goldilocks symbols that you encounter will get you the 10 extra spins; the following three to appear during the extra spins rounds turn Papa Bear wild. Then, the next three Goldilocks symbols turn Mama Bear wild while another three symbols gets Baby Bear wild too. That’s right, you can suddenly get lots and lots of wild symbols all at once! It’s a joyous flurry of winning paylines and extra spins.

 

Performance

This isn’t the first time a slot developer has designed a game based on this famous fairytale. In 2014, Quickspin released Goldilocks and the Wild Bears. Yet, this timely 2017 refresh has made a huge difference. The graphics pop a lot more, which makes the fairytale universe come alive. This gives quite a lovely air of nostalgia, especially to those, who first heard about this story during their childhood years. The animations and accompanying music is charming, basically nothing like your toddler’s cartoons.

Goldilocks Free Spins Win

This Quickspin game is also tuned for mobile devices, so that you can play on your mobile phone or tablet anywhere you prefer. There’s even a handy Autoplay mode, so you can kick off 10 or so spins at a time, then set your mobile down to watch.

 

Unique Feature

Goldilocks and the Three Bears is quite a simple yet intoxicating slot. The game mechanics revolve around the age-old Wild symbol. In fact, I dare say that Wild symbols are the hallmarks of a great slot. They are the easiest feature to grasp and can bring about sizeable winnings each time. Goldilocks and the Three Bears technically presents five different Wild symbols within a single game (the house, the bowl of porridge and each of the three bears). Pretty much nothing is better than this.

Goldilocks Normal Win

 

Last words…

Goldilocks and the Three Bears makes for a nice, easy-going gaming session. It’s not quite as action-packed as those blockbuster slots with exploding symbols and mini-features. After all, the game is modeled after a childhood fairytale! Yet, the game gives off a warm and cosy feeling. I find it quite nice to unwind with this simple game at the end of the day. A few light spins followed by a fun streak of Wild winning combinations — games like these never fail to lift your day. As Goldilocks would say when tasting Baby Bear’s porridge: “it’s not too hot and not too cold — it’s juuust right!”

Lord Slot Casino Review — A Site Committed To Offering Players Plenty Of Choice

Lord Slot Casino LogoLord Slot is the newest casino from the ProgressPlay brand. This means that we already sort of know what to expect: ProgressPlay sites all share the same game rosters and the same promotions. However, whilst this can be a little boring sometimes, we do know that we can count on the brand to deliver a very decent pay by phone casino experience, and so we always enjoy playing at their casinos.

Lord Slot boasts a minimalist design, with a bold logo and a blue and yellow layout. Sadly, there’s nothing fancy or innovative about the site, but it is easy to navigate and looks great across all devices. Furthermore, all new players are treated to a 100% deposit match bonus, which means you’ll have double the funds to play with!

Games

Lord Slot Games PageIf you’ve visited a ProgressPlay casino before, don’t expect to be surprised by Lord Slot’s games offerings. Their roster is exactly the same as other ProgressPlay sites, but that doesn’t make it any less impressive. ProgressPlay have always had one of the most extensive games collections around, as they go above and beyond to make sure their players feel like there’s something that suits their gaming style and that they’re treated to a wide range of software developers.

Lord Slot Welcome BonusLord Slot treats all new players to a 100% match bonus when they deposit £10 or more, worth up to £200. This means that anything you fund your account with first time around will be instantly doubled. Although we’re a little disappointed that there’s no second deposit match bonus or any free spins to be collected, we do think that this bonus should is sufficient in giving you some free cash to try out the site with.

If you’re not too impressed with Lord Slot’s welcome bonus, the good news is that the site runs various weekly and seasonal promotions too. These change monthly, but have included free spins offers, further deposit match bonuses, tournaments, giveaways and more. Of course, as with everything at Lord Slot, these promotions are the same as can be found at other ProgressPlay sites, which is a little uninspiring. That being said, sharing promotions does mean that Lord Slot can offer much bigger, and more exciting, promotions than you would expect from such a fresh-faced site.

 

Banking

pay by phoneOne of the things we love most about ProgressPlay casinos is their commitment to making sure that everyone can bank in a way that they feel is comfortable and convenient.

IGT’s Golden Goddess Is Being Made Into A MegaJackpots Slot

Golden Goddess LogoIGT’s Golden Goddess slot is getting a MegaJackpots makeover! The classic 40 payline game, which has been part of the brand’s roster for years, is soon to join the likes of Siberian Storm and Wolf Run as a progressive jackpot version will be launched on November 9th.

So what, we hear you ask. Golden Goddess is an old game that most slots fans will already be familiar with and we understand that this news may seem, at first, a little unexciting. Of course, the slot will play just like the original and the progressive jackpot side of things will play just like any other MegaJackpots title, but we’re still enthusiastic about this new release. Why? Because MegaJackpots slots can pay out life changing amounts of cash!


 

Why A New MegaJackpots Game Is Needed

MegaJackpots LogoWe don’t ‘need’ another MegaJackpots game to play, but if we’re going down that route, then do we ever ‘need’ any slots at all? The point is that a new MegaJackpots game will add variety to the series and they do say that variety is the spice of life.

Furthermore, MegaJackpots titles are famous for being some of the few games that hit over the million pound mark. Whilst IGT’s progressive jackpots don’t ever grow as big as the likes of Mega Fortune Dreams by NetEnt or Mega Moolah by Microgaming, they do offer life changing amounts and they usually grow quite fast. This is because IGT is one of the world’s most popular software developers.

The MegaJackpots games share a network jackpot, which means they are linked by a centrally located server hosted by IGT themselves. Everyone, who plays one of the MegaJackpots games, will have access to the same prize pool, which means you can try your luck on any of the slots in the series. This also means that the jackpot can soar very quickly, as there are so many players all around the world competing for the same prize.

IGT’s MegaJackpots games all start with a jackpot amount of £500,000 and, on average, they’re usually claimed when they reach around £750,000. However, in 2017 alone the jackpot has reached well over £1,000,000 a few times and at the time of writing this, the MegaJackpot fund currently stands at £774,104, which means now is the perfect time to play.

 

The Golden Goddess Mobile Slot

Golden Goddess GameplayAs we mentioned earlier, aside from the addition of a progressive jackpot, the new game will play in the exact same way as the old one. This is good news, however, as Golden Goddess is one of the world’s best-loved slot games. It can be found at hundreds of online casinos, not to mention how many bricks-and-mortar establishments also feature the game.

Golden Goddess is a five reel, 40 payline slot. It can be played for as little as 40p a spin and is available across all devices. The slot boasts a fantasy theme and symbols on the reels include a pink horse, a white dove, a prince and the Golden Goddess herself. The slot is beautifully illustrated and the reels hang against a serene mountain landscape.

Golden Goddess might be a simple slot, but it does benefit from two bonus features. The first is the Super Stacked Feature and this means that on every spin, one randomly selected symbol will appear stacked. This gives players the chance to create some bigger winning combinations.

The second bonus feature is the free spins round and this is triggered when you find the rose symbol stacked on reels 2, 3 and 4. You’ll be awarded seven free spins to start with, and one symbol will appear stacked for the duration of the round.

Whilst Golden Goddess may sound a little basic, one of the best things about this game is it’s low volatility. The slot pays out often, giving your bankroll the boost it needs to keep playing. There aren’t many low volatility progressive jackpot titles around either, so as this game suits all different types of budgets we’re sure it will be popular.

 

Where Should You Play MegaJackpots Golden Goddess?

Casumo LogoThe game isn’t set for release until the 9th of November, but the good news is that, as the game is an IGT slot, it should be widely available. This means that you can enjoy MegaJackpots Golden Goddess at some of the UK’s best pay by phone online casinos, such as Casumo.

Casumo is currently offering all new players a whoppingly massive welcome package worth up to £1,200 and you’ll also be treated to 200 free spins on NetEnt’s Starburst. Furthermore, the site accepts Boku deposits and boasts a great design that is perfect on desktop, mobile or tablet.

UKGC Warns Online Casinos Over Youth-Focused Adverts

UK Gambling CommissionThe UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) has issued a warning to online casinos, which have created advertising campaigns that inadvertently advertise to under 18s. It’s among many other betting organisations that are making a push to prevent any further issues in this matter, as all regulators agree that gambling that appeals to young people is “unacceptable”.

This the latest installment in an ongoing narrative in the UK press about how wide-spread these adverts are. Is it really such a big issue or are they making a fuss over nothing? For us, it’s easy to believe the latter. However, it’s important that the gambling industry reigns in every now and then, and assesses itself honestly and without bias. Could online casinos do better? Let’s take a look at the facts.


 

A Stern Warning

telling offTo go into more detail, this warning made to online casinos was drafted thanks to various news articles in the UK media calling out online gambling advertisements as being to easily accessible by people aged 17 and under. By this, they mean the adverts appeared on websites that under 18s tended to access the most, primarily social media and video streaming sites.

Not only was the placement of these advertisements criticised, but what was used in them was brought into the limelight too. The Sunday Times in particular called out online casinos for using popular cartoon characters that greatly appeal to children. In turn, the UKGC was forced to respond to this. In their letter, they dictated that any online casino that uses images, which have “particular appeal to children or young persons” will be deemed inappropriate and banned.

Such examples included Piggy Payout, Fluffy Favourites and Pirate Princess, all of which put a particular emphasis on cutesy animals to create the slots’ sense of identity. There was also a point relating to the “freely accessible ads for play-for-free and play-for-money games,” which refers to the platform such ads are presented on and includes any third party images and graphics provided by other media.

 

The Difficulties Of Advertising

Promos ImageWhile the letter sounds rather stern and bureaucratic, the UKGC and associated organisations recognised the difficulties online casinos have in making creative choices when it comes to their advertising campaigns.  Imposing such restrictions limits them in coming up with new and innovative ideas.

However, they argued (and we agree) that such restrictions are necessary as it keeps mobile gambling within safe parameters. Besides, we think that online casinos should use this limitation to their advantage. Creativity thrives under limitations, after all, and sometimes can produce better results.

On the other hand, it is somewhat difficult to know inherently appeals to both children and adults alike, not unless you ask every adult/child you come across. It is also integral for online casinos to use bright colours as it helps their slots stand out among others. As for the cartoons… We’re going to have to stand with the UKGC on this one.

It baffles us slightly why cartoons are so prevalent in online casinos. While we wouldn’t say they appeal to children exactly, it is odd to think that slot developers think all gamblers want to see are cutesy animals. Nevertheless, it’s a tried and tested formula that such images use to pull in more players, even if that is just a cheap marketing ploy.

 

Media Hysteria?

conclusionOf course, this warning might not have come about had not the Sunday Times published that article. The article is far from incorrect on the fact that certain graphics and ideas put forward by online casinos could potentially appeal to an under 18. However, that is assuming that every under 18 clicks on every advert that they see and we know for a fact that kids are smarter than this.

Perhaps younger children won’t know the difference (and this could be an actual issue), but we do feel that the UK press, as usual, is exaggerating somewhat. From the tone of the article, you might believe that there’s some epidemic of underage gamblers rife across the country.

While we agree that underage gambling is definitely a problem and online casinos have a duty to employ the appropriate measures need to be put in place to prevent addiction, the figure is near-infinitesimal in comparison to the amount of addicted adults in the gambling world. We believe it’s more of a priority for the UKGC to tackle that over everything else.

Four Pay By Phone Casinos With Huge Promotions And Bonuses

Cash Around Mobile PhoneOne of the biggest factors to consider when choosing a new casino is how well you’ll be rewarded for your loyalty. The beauty of the online casino industry is that there’s hundreds of sites to pick from.  This means that, most of the time, if you don’t find a casino’s bonuses and promotions appealing, you can simply opt to play elsewhere.

However, for pay by phone users, this isn’t always the case. Players, who deposit via Boku or any other phone bill depositing service, can sometimes find it a struggle to find a casino that serves all their needs. Both good pay by phone casinos and good casino promotions are few and far between, and so if you stumble across a site that offers one or the other, it may seem like you need to cut your losses and settle.

However, we’re here to tell you you’d be wrong to do so! We’ve rounded up the best casino sites which accept phone bill deposits AND offer some massive promotions, so that you can have the best of both worlds.


 

BGO Vegas Casino

bgo logoBGO is one of the UK’s most well known casino brands. This is, in part, due to their star studded advertising campaigns who have featured the likes of Dan Bilzerian, Paris Hilton and Verne Troyer, but it’s also because they’ve been providing a quality casino experience for over five years now.

With so many years of practise under their belt, it’s no wonder that they’re also one of the best sites to visit if you’re on the hunt for a great promotion. BGO know how important it is to make sure their players feel valued and that’s why there’s always at least three or four promotions up for grabs.

Furthermore, not only do these promotions often offer some life-changing prizes, but they’re also designed to be beneficial for all types of players. This is why the bonuses at BGO can be claimed whether your playing table games or slots, depositing via Boku or Mastercard.

BGO have also recently introduced a new welcome bonus that comes with up to 50 ‘fair spins.’ Fair spins are just like free spins, except they aren’t subject to any of the sneaky terms and conditions you may find at other casinos. This means there’s no maximum win restriction, nor are they tied to wagering requirements. Instead, anything you win from them can be withdrawn straight away.

 

Bet365 Casino

Bet365 logoMuch like BGO, Bet365 are one of the biggest UK casino brands. The site offers everything from sports betting to slots, to live casino games and more, all of which can be accessed on both mobile and desktop. Bare in mind, however, that you can only deposit via phone bill on the mobile version of the site.

GoWin Casino

GoWin Casino LogoGoWin launched way back in 2014, yet since then the site has been through a giant redesign. This overhaul not only made the casino more visually appealing, but it also secured them a place on many a top-10 casino list. This is because the new GoWin was created to run flawlessly across all devices and so it now appeals to both desktop and mobile players.

GoWin is powered by the Nektan brand, which has become synonymous with offering players the best pay by phone bill experience around. Not only do they accept Boku deposits, but you can fund your account straight from your mobile phone, meaning the whole process takes only a matter of seconds. Furthermore, as a Nektan casino, GoWin offers an extensive roster of games from different software developers and it’s updated every week.

When it comes to bonuses and promotions, GoWin are very generous. There’s always something on offer throughout the week, whether that’s free spins, cashback or extra deposit bonuses. Moreover, new players at the site benefit from a welcome package worth up to £850, which can be claimed by depositing as little as £10. You’ll receive three match deposit bonuses and you’ll also be awarded 50 free spins on Starburst!

 

mFortune Casino

mFortune logoNo pay by phone casino list would be complete without a mention of mFortune casino. mFortune was not only one of the first UK mobile casinos, but one of the first to accept Boku payments too. However, in contrast to the other sites mentioned in this article, mFortune is a small operation. The casino features 37 games, yet these are all hand-crafted and completely original. Furthermore, these games are designed to work perfectly on mobile devices and can even be downloaded as their own app.

Due to it’s size, players would be foolish to expect the kind of multi-million promotions that other sites may offer. However, mFortune have earned their place on this list because they’ve been giving away free cash from the day they launched. All new players at the casino are treated to a £5 no deposit bonus when they sign up, and this is totally wagering requirement free. This means that you can keep what you win straight away, without even having to fund your account. A bonus like this is a rare treat, but for mFortune Casino it’s just a part of their commitment to making sure their players feel comfortable and valued at all times.

mFortune players will also be treated to a 100% first deposit match bonus and an extra 10% bonus on any deposit thereafter. This means that each and every time you fund your mFortune account, you can expect a little more bang for your buck. Moreover, each of these bonuses is tied to a simple wagering requirement of 1x, which means that once you’ve played through the bonus, any winnings are yours to withdraw.

Monster Wheels Mobile Slot Reviewed — The Perfect Halloween Slot!

Monster Wheels Feature ImageHalloween has come around, yet again! Instead playing on the tired vampire-themed slots or zombies from yesteryear, you can hang out with the spookiest characters in monster trucks! Microgaming has bandied together Frankenstein, Count Dracula, a werewolf and a bunch of other Halloweeny staples and let them run loose with some seriously heavy-duty trucks. Accompanying this group of villains are a profitable set of free spins and multipliers. All in all, it offers a great dose of adrenaline and oomph into your daily gaming routine.


 

Gameplay

The distinguishing feature of Monster Wheels is that players can pick between 128 or 228 ways to win. Depending on your choice, you’ll be presented a different set of reels. Under the hood, it doesn’t really matter. The Monster Wheels slot pays out the same in either configuration and the top prize is the same for both cases too. I guess it’s kind of like expressing your personality or your daily mood through your wheels. You can change between both formats at any time and try to see if either configuration suits your wallet better.

Monster Wheels Big Win

The reels are slightly unusual, in that they aren’t your standard 5×3 reel setup. These are Monster Wheels after all! If you choose to play with 128 ways to win, the reels are arranged in a 2-4-2-4-2 format, whereas the other setting presents a 4-3-2-3-4 reel format. Both set-ups are designed to look like monster truck engines and offer a nice twist to the usual slot game. With this setup, the game has a payout percentage of 96.04%. You can bet from 30p to £15 per spin—a nice range to suit all budgets and moods.

Monster Wheels Wild Win

The reels are populated with a mean set of symbols. You’ll find bulky monster trucks ridden by even meaner monsters. The cast of drivers include the Big Bad Wolf, the malevolent devil lady, Frankenstein, a mummy, a zombie and Count Dracula. These baddies are complemented by the usual set of low-value symbols—9, 10, J, Q and K. The wild symbol is the game’s logo and this substitutes for all symbols except the scatter.

 

Bonus Features

Besides choosing the number of ways to win in the slot, players can also choose their chances during the free spins rounds. The element of control over your fortune always plays well with the crowd. You’ll get to choose between:

  • Three free spins at 8x multiplier
  • Six free spins with 4x multiplier
  • A dozen free spins with 2x multiplier

Monster Wheels Free Spins Type

Which would go for? I like to play it safe with the 12 free spins combo, so that I can spread my chances over a larger number of spins. Of course, the thrill of betting it all on three short spins is incredibly exciting too! With the max multipliers, you can potentially win more than 7,500x your stake! I also like to try every option at least once during each gameplay session to feel out where my fortune lies.

Monster Wheels Additional Free Spins

This free spin round is triggered when you get three gasoline can symbols anywhere on the reels. If you land additional scatters during the bonus rounds, you’ll get additional free spins too! Getting one scatter during the free spins adds an extra free spin while getting two scatter symbols adds two free spins. Should you be so lucky to land three scatters during a free spin, you’ll re-triggers the entire set of free spins. It’s like generating fortune in hands-free mode!

 

Performance

The game tries to put players in the center of monster-truck action. You’ll play to the soundtrack of top-speed flips and crashes, rumbling engines and roaring cheers. The game reels are set in between two jumbo tires while the reels are modeled after car engines. You’ll want to watch the game trailer for yourself to watch this fiery game in all of its glory. The game is available on desktop, tablet and most mobile devices.

Unique Feature

Monster Wheels is paraded as a Halloween slot, given the timing of its release and the colourful cast of characters. Yet, there’s a timeless quality about it. For starters, there are no cheesy ghouls and bloodied characters. The spotlight is instead turned onto monster trucks and multiplier-filled free spins, all of which makes Monster Wheels seem like one of those slots that people will turn to throughout the year as opposed to just around Halloween.

Monster Wheels Free Spins Gameplay

 

Last words…

Microgaming can do no wrong. Like all of its other slots, Monster Wheels is immensely playable. From the masterfully-executed theme to the delightful array of free spins and multipliers, you’ll walk away with that same energy high that you could get from a monster truck ride! Or so I imagine, at least. The other brilliant part is being able to swap reels at any time, adding a good variety into your gameplay. Anyway, all of that is to say that Monster Wheels is a great game and you should check it out for yourself asap!
