Achilles Video Slot

Game review: Achilles

Tales of Ancient Greece run deep in the world of online casino slots, and this video slot is an absolute classic. In a time when video slot animations were all but non-existent, carrying a theme through a videoslot was left entirely up to the game symbols and, occasionally, a background image. In that vein, Achilles video slot had the best of both worlds. The slot symbols include a deck of cards, 9 through Ace with a Greek style to them; a shield and banner; a Trojan Horse; Helen, I guess; and the two bonus symbols: Achilles and the city of Troy. The slot machine’s background effect is taken care of by the city walls up top and the reels are played over the sea.

Achilles is a 20 line progressive jackpot video slot, so is generally cheap to play, which is beneficial considering the progressive jackpot is a random hitter rather than being triggered by a set of matching symbols, so you want to play many spins over a long period of time in order to maximize your chances of hitting the videoslot jackpot. You’ll find that most casinos display the jackpot value in Euros as that’s the way the information is directly received from RTG, but Realtime Gaming offers this video slot to US friendly casinos.

The sound effects, and only the sound effects as there is no background music, is fitting to the theme, with the reels spinning with a mechanical, wooden sound as if it were powered by a trebuchet and the win sounds are pleasingly celebratory on bigger wins.


Features

Achilles Video Slot features a Wild and a Scatter symbol, both of which are paying symbols. The random Progressive Jackpot is a major feature of this casino game.

The game also features the old school, full function autoplay where you can set a number of stoppers including the number of spins, if your balance increases or decreases by a certain amount, etc. To speed up play and try to time your reels, there is the added option of stopping the reels via the spin button, which changes to a stop button immediately after the reels start spinning. The gameplay is easy to understand and that jackpot value takes pride of place at the top center of the game screen at all times.

Wild

The Achilles symbol is wild and substitutes for any symbol except the scatter. He’s also the highest paying symbol by some margin, paying 10,000 coins for 5 appearance. By comparison, the second highest symbol, Being Helen, pays out 5,000 coins for 5 appearances across the video slot’s reels. When used as a Wild, the Achilles symbol does not add a multiplier to the wins that he creates.

Scatter

The city of Troy symbol is a scatter and pays out from 3 symbols (3 coins) appearing anywhere on the reels, to 5 appearance (500 coins).

Achilles Feature Game

3 or more Achilles symbols anywhere on the Reels, so in scatter formation, triggers the Achilles Feature Game. You get to select one of the symbols, which will reveal either 15, 20 or 25 free spins. The city of Troy symbols are disabled during the feature free spins and are substituted by the two highest paying symbols. Prizes are also tripled during the videoslot feature game and the feature can easily be retriggered, considering the extra Troy symbols available.

Troy Free Spins

3 or more of the city of Troy symbols, scattered anywhere on the reels, triggers 10 free spins. Prizes are doubled during the free spins. Again, easily retriggered, the free spins are aided by Achilles joining in as an extra Scatter symbol during this feature, so any 3 scattered Troy and/or Achilles symbols will retrigger the free spins.

Progressive Jackpot

The progressive jackpot is random and can be triggered at the end of any spin, win or lose. So what you want to do to maximize your chances of hitting the jackpot is to play lots and lots of spins.


For a dive back into time, Achilles video slot is a winner. The combination of the ancient Greek theme and the rather ancient video slot itself is a charming play. For its time, the features are actually rather complex and super rewarding. Once you get started keep that progressive jackpot in mind and keep on hitting that spin button.

Achilles Video Slot earns itself a 5 star rating from the Directory of Slots

The Angler Video Slot

Game review: The Angler

Hurl out your fishing pole, cast your baited rod and reel in the cash with The Angler Video Slot.

Here’s a 5 reel, 20 line online slot from the creators of some of the most beautiful graphics in all of the online casino industry: Betsoft. This casino game features a big, friendly looking fisherman, Otis, with huge arms and tiny legs, on a quest for a jackpot catch. Hop aboard with Otis as he enjoys a leisurely afternoon of fishing out on the lake.

Fishing themed video slots are among the most popular out there and my personal favorite, at land based and online casinos, because of the fun interactive bonus games that they offer. The Angler is no exception with its wonderfully innovative Time To Fish! bonus feature game, among its other features: Oyster Free Spins and Clingy Wilds.

The Angler Online Video Slot is set on a lake with misty mountains in the background. Otis stands on a pier to the left of the reels in his full fishing kit: fishing hooks in the hat, a fishing coat and boots, with a bait bucket in one hand and his fishing rod in the other. His boat floats behind the opaque online slot reels, with a quintessential lighthouse further back. The reels are held up by a system of pulleys and ropes, fitting in well with the theme of the online video slot. Look closely enough at the ropes on the sides and you’ll see the slot line numbers suspended between them. Clicking on any of them shows you the line in question, quite a neat little touch. But you didn’t think Otis would just stand around and watch the reels spin all day, did you? Not in a Betsoft online video slot, no way! On medium wins he’ll give you a hearty round of applause and on bigger wins he jumps up and exclaims “Yeah!” he sounds older than he looks, and on the biggest wins a dramatic steering wheel with ornamental fish on lines comes up, spinning this way and that, rocking to and fro, while counting up your casino cash winnings.

The standard icons come in the form of a J, Q, K and A. They’re very colorful but otherwise pretty standard. 3 or more of these on an active payline will trigger a win of between 3 and 75 coins. The higher paying icons are, from lowest to highest paying: an orange Goldfish, a green Blowfish, a blue Turtle, a Hammerhead Shark - but not a dangerous looking fellow, and, of course, Otis. With these you can expect wins between 20 and 350 coins. 

The background music of the online slot machine is made up of a pleasant symphony with some flute music to boot, but there’s also some nature and the calm outdoors coming through in the sounds of birds and the gentle waves of the lake. The reels spin to the sound of bubbles and ,when a win comes, the winning symbols pop out in bubbles to highlight your winning combination, then their bubbles pop and they return to position on the slots.

Being a 20 line online video slot, and with coin sizes as low as a cent, The Angler Video Slot can be played as a penny slot or all the way up to a Dollar coin size, 5 coins per line for $100 spins.


Features

The Angler video slot has two uniquely named features: Time To Fish! and Oyster Free Spins with Clingy Wilds.

There’s also a Double Up feature with a clearly marked button to the right of the Spin button. Whenever a win is triggered you get the opportunity to play the Double Up feature. Hit the button and you get a pop up screen with a coin to flip. Choose your side, heads or tails, and choose your stake, all or half of your winnings, and let the coin decide your fate.

The speed of the reels can be controlled by a Turbo Play option sited in the options (gear cog) menu, and the Spin Button changes into a Stop button as soon as the reels start spinning, so you can time your own wins perfectly. Further to that, the Stop button then turns into a Skip button if you’d like to speed through the winning celebrations and get on with the online casino game. You can even use the Stop reels and Skip features during the Free Spins feature.

The Autoplay feature allows you to choose coins and lines, as well as the number of spins while quickly calculating the total cost of the entire set of autospins for you. The stoppers you have at your disposal are for the Max loss in cash and Win in cash.

Time To Fish!

Hit 3 scatter Bonus symbols and you’ll trigger The Angler video slot’s bonus game in which you control the main character, Otis, as he fishes out the biggest wins. You’re now out on the water in the boat and have a control panel on the top right. Otis casts the line and you’ve got to time it, and choose whether to Pull or Reel. 3 misses ends the feature game, so does 3 catches. The bigger the fish, the more coins you’ll receive. There’s a time limit, so don’t wait for the biggest every time, you don’t want to be caught out on the lake after dark.

Note that the scatter symbols don’t need to be on a payline, as with any scatter symbol, but they do only appear on reels 1, 2 and 3.

Oyster Free Spins

Three of the Pearl scatter symbols, this time appearing on reels 3, 4 and 5, triggers the Oyster Free Spins feature. The background changes to an underwater environment with no Otis swimming around (unless he’s hanging around the bottom left of the video slot screen, there does seem to be an uncanny amount of bubbles coming from that region), just some seaweed, and the music speeds up a lot. The reels decrease in size as a large win meter and spins remaining counter come in. You get 8 Free Spins to start with.

The extra opportunity to win during the free spins feature comes in the form of the Clingy Wilds. You’ll be familiar with sticky wilds, pretty much the same thing here, but the clingy wilds stick around for the entire duration of the free spins feature meaning you could rack up some serious wins by stacking up the Wilds. The Wild symbol, as mentioned, is the octopus and when he’s trying to be a Clingy Wild during the free spins feature game he literally clings on to the ropes that separate the reels, using 4 of his tentacles.

Another great feature of the free spins mode is that further free spins can be activated during the free spins mode. And that’s where the catch comes in, the wild symbol substitutes for all other symbols, but not the free spins and bonus ones.

As should be standard by now, the video slot is compatible with all current platforms that you could need including desktop (PC and Mac) and mobile (iOS, Android and Windows’ WinPhone).


You don’t need to know how to fish, nor any of the jargon that fishermen use: this is a good old fashioned, pure online video slot behind the fisherman’s windbreaker making it easy for the regular online gambler to net the cash. Just enjoy the beautiful 3d scenery and the calmness of being out on the lake while you indulge in your favorite pastime of online casino gambling.

The Directory of Slots awards this great catch, The Angler Video Slot, a full 5 stars.

Asgard Video Slot

Game review: Asgard

Ancient Norse Mythology is all the rage at the moment with movies like the Avengers and Thor bringing the theme to the masses. The Norse gods are killing it at the box office so why not at the video slots? Realtime Gaming (RTG) brought us Asgard Video Slot, named after the land of the gods, at the end of 2017 with this well executed video slot. Mostly based around the popular hero, Thor, we have symbols of Thor himself, Loki, Odin and Freya, as well as Thor’s hammer and the floating city of Asgard. The remaining slots are made up of cards, 9 through Ace, designed to fit in with the Scandinavian metal and ice finish of the rest of the slot machine’s design.
There’s pleasant, epic style music playing in the background and spins containing a possible bonus hit are signaled by a satisfying metal clank.  The background is a view of a world from space, with a few other planets and moons visible. There’s a blue tone to it all during normal play, which change according to the feature game at play.


Features
And feature games are plentiful in Asgard video slot. We have a wild and a scatter, as well as 4 unique feature games, one for each of the 4 main characters, which are progressively unlocked, and a special feature called the Thunderbolt Feature.
This video slot is of the all ways pays variety, offering 243 paylines across it’s 5x3 reels, so any consecutive symbols, from left to right, are counted as winners.
There are 3 speed settings for the video slot reels, although we found the first 2 a little too slow. Having said that, there is a stop button which is made available as soon as the reels start to spin. The highest speed is almost instant and wastes no time with spinning reels, which is especially useful considering the frequency of free spins and feature games hits.
As far as an online casino game goes, Asgard Video Slot is super easy to play as the maximum payline count is permanently locked in and all you’ve got to do is choose your bet value of between $0.30 and $30 per spin. RTG’s comprehensive auto play function is also available for full customization of your stoppers.
Wild
During normal gameplay there is a Golden Wild, which plays for all symbols except the scatter. Asgard’s Golden Wild doubles all wins when it appears in a paying line. During Loki’s feature game there is an additional wild, a Silver Wild. The Golden Wild is also the highest paying symbol in the casino game, paying out 75, 200 or 1,000 coins for 3, 4 or 5 appearances respectively.
Scatter
The Bonus symbol is a scatter and pays out from 2 appearances anywhere on the reels. Pays are 1, 2, 20 and 250 coins for 2, 3, 4 and 5 appearances respectively. We’ve found the scatter Bonus symbol to be almost ever-present during our audit of this slot machine.
Thunderbolt Feature
On any normal spin, outside of the feature games, you could randomly hit the Thunderbolt Feature. This feature sees entire reels turn into expanding wilds and it could go all the way to cover all 5 reels.
Goddess Feature Free Spins
3 or more of the Bonus symbol triggers the feature games where you get to choose on of four games. If it’s one of your first four hits then you’ve only got the Goddess Feature to choose. During this feature you’re awarded with 15 free spins where all wins are tripled. The feature free spins are ridiculously easily retriggered during the feature game, making the next unlock easy to reach.
Loki’s Magic Free Spins
From the 5th time onwards, Loki’s Magic free spins is unlocked. Loki’s magic gives you 20 free spins and reel 3 sees the appearance of the special Silver Wild. When the Silver Wild appears it randomly replaces symbols on any/all of the 5 reels. During Loki’s Magic free spins 2, 3, 4 or 5 Bonus symbols will add a further 1, 2, 3 or 4 free spins, respectively, to the total.
Thunder God Feature Free Spins
From the 10th trigger onwards, the Thunder God Feature becomes unlocked. Here, Thor gives you 25 free spins and adds 2 wild multipliers. Every line win brings with it a 2x or 3x multiplier which overlays random symbols on the middle 3 reels. These wins can be added and are further multiplied by 2 if the line win includes a Golden Wild. Any 3 or more Bonus symbols during this videoslot feature awards an extra 5 free spins to the total.
Valhalla Feature Free Spins
This is the ultimate feature game of Asgard Video Slot. From the 15th time onwards, Valhalla Feature free spins is added to the selection, now allowing you a choice of any of the 4 feature games when you see 3 or more bonus symbols. During this feature game Odin awards lucky online casino players with 30 free spins and adds a new Morphing Symbol. Any line wins triggered pay out their winnings and then the winning symbols morph into new symbols, giving you another chance to win. The Morphing feature continues until no further wins are hit, then the video slot moves on to the next free spin. Each Morph brings with it a win multiplier, from 2x in the first morph up to 5x from the 4th morph onwards. Retriggers of the Bonus feature during the Valhalla free spins add a further 8 free spins to the total each time.


Asgard Video Slot is a brand new take on a theme that’s been recently revitalized by the movie industry and is a well done attempt at that. The style of the video slot suits the theme impressively well and the abundance of features makes this a very fun video slot to play. We were surprised by how frequently we’d it the free games features, add to that the frequent retriggers and you could be playing for a long time with very little outlay.
Asgard Video Slot gets a strong 5 star rating from the Directory of Slots.

Aztec's Millions Video Slot

Game review: Aztec's Millions

Before we get into the ancient American theme of this video slot, let’s have a look at that progressive jackpot: minimum $1 million. That’s right, when the progressive jackpot is hit it resets to $1,000,000, and then builds on from there until it’s hit again, then resets to a million again. The massive value of the jackpot is allowed by the price of entry, as a spin on this video slot will cost you $5 and that is a fixed value that cannot be changed. Quite a hefty price for some and so this jackpot casino game is not that popular, therefore building up slowly, but it’s worth playing even if you’re the first after a win has occurred due to that massive minimum value.

The Aztec empire is known for their treasures and art left behind. Enabled by their excess food supply, farming and foraging was not a major time consumer and so their time was spent creating, trading and gathering great treasures. Treasures that you can now enjoy the spoils of by playing Aztec’s Millions Video Slot.

The sounds of the online slot machine are straight forward slot fare, not related to the theme and, being over a decade old, there are no animations and fanfare to speak of. Realtime Gaming (RTG) produced the game to fill the void left behind for US friendly online casinos when Microgaming pulled out of the market, and it has stood the test of time, if for no other reason than that incredible progressive jackpot.


Features

Progressive jackpot slots don’t usually contain many extra features due to the name of the game being the jackpot itself, but Aztec’s Millions Video Slot has a few extra tricks up its sleeve. There’s a Wild, a Scatter and a Free Spins feature, apart from the progressive jackpot.

The video slot plays as 25 lines across the 5x3 reel and that’s a fixed setting, and playing at a fixed $0.20 per line, that makes for $5 per spin - easy to use if a little expensive for some tastes. There are no speed settings here and the reels spin at a leisurely pace, adding some excitement for your $5, but there is a stop button which can be used from the second the reels start spinning, for those well timed wins and to speed up play. The autoplay is RTG’s full function system, including turbo play. 

Wild

The Aztec King symbol is wild, substituting for all except the scatter and jackpot symbols. He appears only in the middle 3 reels, not the first and last. He does not add a multiplier to celebrate his appearance on a winning pay line. Since he doesn’t cover all lines he is not the highest paying symbol of the slot machine, that honor goes to the Aztec Queen. That is, of course, highest paying other than the progressive jackpot symbol.

Scatter

The Aztec Idol is the scatter symbol, paying out from 3 appearances anywhere on the reels and not necessarily on consecutive reels. 3 idols pays out 3 times the total bet, so $15. 4 idols will get you $75 and 5 idols pays out $500. There are more ways than one to win real money on this video slot.

Free Spins Feature

The appearance of 3 or more idols also brings up the Free Spins Feature.

3 idols will award lucky casino players with 5 free spins. 4 idols gets 15 free spins and the maximum of 5 will get you 25 free spins. That’s $100 worth of free spins on top of the $500 in scatter winnings.

Progressive Jackpot

The symbol you really want to see on this video slot’s game screen is the Aztec’s Millions symbol. It pays out all the way from 1 appearance, 5 coins, through 2,500 coins for 4 coins, and, of course, 5 Aztec’s Millions symbols pays out the incredible Progressive Jackpot.


Not to overplay on it, but progressive jackpot video slots, even ones of smaller values, tend to keep the jackpot as the hero. But Aztec’s Millions video slot offers a surprisingly vast array of ways to win. Apart from the features already mentioned, the Aztec Queen pays out for even a single appearance, while the leopard and eagle symbols pay out from just 2 appearances. It may be costly to play, but the constant wins will keep you in the game while you search for the elusive Aztec’s Millions.

The Directory of Slots awards Aztec’s Millions Progressive Jackpot video slot 5 stars out of 5 for being a feature filled, fun video slot in which you could win a life changing sum of money, and bringing that massive progressive jackpot to American online casino players.

Boom Galaxy Video Slot

Game review: Boom Galaxy

Boom Galaxy is a video slot, sure, but not one that you can play at will or for real money. It’s a special game created by Jackpot City casino online for use as its intro game. So rather than getting a certain amount of free spins on a normal video slot that’s available at other casinos as well, a game that’s often changed out for a newer online slot game every so often, at Jackpot City you get 50 free spins on Boom Galaxy video slot as a new player and that’s that. Any winnings that you get off of the video slot are awarded to you as your welcome bonus, pending a $10 deposit on your part. The maximum bonus awarded is limited to $20.

The slot has artificial options for coin size and number of paylines, possibly there for use in other cases, but none that we’ve seen, so it’s set at 3 lines and 10 cents per line.


The game symbols are various gemstone like crystals. No idea what the values are as there is no paytable to reference. There are two cartoonish space aliens floating around in astronaut suits watching your video slots free spins go along and the win meter looks pretty when counting up the winnings, but there isn’t much else going on and our advice is to hit the auto button, let the casino game go about its business and then put in your $10 to collect the winnings.


There are no Wild symbols, Scatters or any sort of feature games to speak of. Once you’ve had your fun with the free spins you may want to look to Jackpot City’s promotions page for a good welcome match bonus offer to get your online gaming underway.

Bubble Bubble Video Slot

Game review: Bubble Bubble

As far as Halloween video slots go, Bubble Bubble online video slot is rather less seasonal. The theme to this online casino game is less scary and more sexy - a more modern take on the casino slot theme then. Sure, the background of the game during normal play is a dark graveyard looking scene with scary trees, cobwebs, a dark owl with bright yellow eyes that blinks every now and then, a witch’s broom and a colony of bats that fly overhead as the reels spin, but the witch, Winni is her name, who really makes the game is not a haggard old lady in the least. She wears a sexy Halloween costume in heels, stockings on suspenders, a little cleavage hugging coat and a witch’s hat. When she appears on the reels she sits atop a grave stone on which we see the engraving ‘One Wild Witch.’ Another clue is in her spell book: it’s a book of love spells.

Triggering one of the many feature games sees the background change into an altogether more friendly place. It’s brighter and more colorful, there are some haunted houses to see in the background, and the animations to watch out for this time come in the form of a witch flying past the moon on the top left, and Winni’s bra hanging from a tree, blowing in the wind to the right of the slot reels.

A loft of time and effort went into creating this online slot machine and we sure appreciate it.

The game is a standard 5x3 reel setup with a fixed 50 paylines. Adjusting your bets is achieved through the up and down arrows in the center of the play console. You can choose anything from 50c per spin to $5. Wins are also, handily, counted up in Dollars rather than coins.

A lot of time and effort has gone into the creation of the slot symbols, as well. There are no suit of cards to be seen here and all the slot symbols are created for the theme. From lowest to highest we have equals in a pair of scary looking candles, a skull with a candle on it and a big old spider, these pay between 5 and 99 times your bet for 3 to 5 appearances. Next up, equals again, we have a crystal ball, a pink potion in a bottle and a batch of ingredients for cooking up something terrible, these pay between 5 and 150. Next, the final set of equals, is a jack-o'-lantern and Winni’s book of love spells, these pay between 3 and 333. Then comes a charming toad, he’s really ugly but at least he’s trying, as is evidenced by his breath spray, he pays between 3 and 333 also, but has higher payouts for 3 and 4 appearances. Next is an evil looking crow, he pays between 3 and 1,000. Last of the standard symbols is a black cat (Salem, is that you?) and he matches the crows payouts from 3 to 5 appearances, but pays 6 for just 2 appearances.

The background music is suitably dramatic piano music that is a pleasure to listen to, then come the winning sounds and you’d be forgiven for thinking the entire orchestra showed up to watch you play your favorite video slots online.

Features

There are a lot of features to Realtime Gaming’s Bubble Bubble Video Slot.

We have a wild and, of course, it’s Winnie the Wild Witch, a Scatter, a Wild Witches Feature, Great Ghosts Feature and a Bewitched Feature. There’s also a backup feature called the Win-Win Feature.

Playability features of the video slot include a super autoplay, just hit autoplay and it starts spinning. If you want to fine tune it, to set the number of spins, max loss, etc. then you go through the menu on the bottom right to find Autoplay Options.

The speed of the reels can be controlled via 3 speed settings. You’ll find a tombstone on the bottom left of the slot screen with Speed written on it, hit that and the skeletal hand will show you 1 finger for slow, 2 for medium and 3 fingers for top speed. Although the online slot machine features a 3 speed setting, you still have the option to stop the reels as soon as they start spinning. That includes during the free spins modes.

An additional feature worth noting is that all symbols except the lowest 2 sets, pay out from just 2 appearances - causing almost every spin to be a winning hand.

Wild

Winni the Witch is the Wild symbol for this video slot. She appears on reel 3 only and is an expanding wild, so always takes up the entire reel. This is a benefit in every sense since she substitutes for every other symbol in the game, including the scatter symbol, and she multiplies all wins by 3 when she plays as a substitute. 

Scatter

The Cauldron with a purple octopus in it is the Scatter symbol for Bubble Bubble video slot. Scatter symbols pay 2 for two appearances, 3 for three, 6 for four and 33 times your total bet for 5 appearances. Remember, the Wild Winni the Witch also counts for a Scatter when she plays as a substitute, and therefore triples the wins.

The scatter symbol is also responsible for triggering all of the video slot’s feature games. 3 or more of the scatter symbol appearing from left to right, or two Scatters and Winni, triggers the feature game where you’re prompted to select one of the winning Cauldron symbols in order to reveal the feature game that will be played.

Great Ghosts Feature

After selecting one of the Scatter symbols that triggered the feature game, you may find that you’ve triggered the Great Ghosts Feature. This video slot feature awards you with 20 free spins to start with. If you hit a scatter win during the Great Ghosts Feature then you’ll be greeted by some ghosts. Up to 9 ghosts will fly into the reels and replace random symbols, triggering extra wins. The Wild Ghosts aren’t as wild as Winni and so don’t substitute for the Scatter symbols, just every other symbol. The Great Ghosts Feature can be retriggered by hitting another 3 or more Cauldrons during the free spins feature.

Wild Witches Feature

If you’ve selected a Scatter symbol that was hiding the Wild Witches Feature then you’ll be rewarded with 9 free spins to get the feature game started. Any time that Winni appears during the free spins she will cast a spell on one or two other reels, causing them to turn into expanding wilds, too. Of course, Winni is all too willing to have the feature game retriggered during play and even ensures that retriggers are counted before casting her spell on any other reels.

Bewitched Feature

Having selected a Bewitched Feature scatter symbol, you’ll be rewarded with the lowest number of free spins, but also the most chances of winning. With just 7 free spins, the Bewitched Feature keeps Winni the Wild Witch permanently in place across the entire 3rd reel of the online video slot machine. Remember that Winni is happy to substitute for any other symbol on this online slot, including the scatter, making retriggers of this video slot feature game a common occurrence.

Win-Win Feature

The Win-Win Feature is played in conjunction with the Wild Witches Feature of Bubble Bubble video slot online, and is only active during it.

If your total winnings from the Wild Witches Feature came in at less than 10x your bet value then the Win-Win Feature will reward you with a bonus of anything between 5 and 100 times your bet value. If you had no win whatsoever during the Wild Witches Feature then the Win-Win Feature will reward you with an automatic 100x your bet value. Losing is also winning in this video slot feature game.


Gambling is a superstitious business. Nothing’s changes as we brought gambling to online casinos, we’re still as superstitious as ever and have our little ‘techniques’ that we use to get a win at the video slots online. But every once in a while you find a video slot that you don’t need to cast a spell on: it’s just naturally set up to offer constant wins, constant feature games and constant entertainment. We may poke some fun at Winni but she’s a super video slot character who adds tons of appeal to this online video slot. Bubble Bubble video slot is a feature packed, action packed ball of fun.

The Directory of Slots awards this Wild Witch and her accompanying online video slot symbols 4 stars out of a maximum of 5.

Charms & Clovers Video Slot

Game review: Charms & Clovers

Brought to us from Ancient Irish mythology, difficult to spell as their name might be, everyone knows about Leprechauns and their never ending search for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. That rainbow is where the inspiration comes from for Betsoft’s richly colored, HD take on the luck of the Irish in this bright and beautiful video slot. You’ll find four fun video slots at the end of the reels where sits...a 6th reel! Your chance to win a pot of cash.


Features

Charms & Clovers video slot offers four unique feature games all triggered by a 6th reel that does nothing but serve out the feature games. It’s kind of a feature in itself: let’s call it a 5 feature game. So we have: the 6th Reel; Money Wheel; Mega Symbol; Pots of Gold and Golden Bonus.

The 6th Reel

We’re all familiar with the regular video slot reel layout: a 5 x 3 table. In order not to waste winning space on the standard reels, Betsoft have added an extra, 6th reel to this slot machine that’s purely to control the feature games. Get 4 of any matching bonus symbols on this reel and you’re in the money with one of the following four special bonus features.

Money Wheel

Hit four of the money wheel symbols on the 6th reel and you’ll have triggered the Money Wheel. A new screen comes up with a wheel of fortune that’ll pay you up to 40x your bet value and the chance to claim one of the three progressive jackpots.

Mega Symbol

Four of the green Mega Symbols on the bonus reel nets lucky online gamblers 8 free spins with a special huge Leprechaun symbol (the most valuable symbol in the game) that takes up a 3 x 3 spot for guaranteed wins.

Pots of Gold

Four of these green backed symbols will trigger 8 free spins during which additional Golden Coin wilds will appear on the reels, increasing the casino players’ chances of completing a payline.

Golden Bonus

A classic pick a prize game, four of the Golden Bonus symbols will trigger this feature game where a new screen is presented featuring 5 pots of gold for a lucky spinner to choose from. One of them contains a bet multiplier of 20x.


A bit of an oldie it may be, but certainly as golden as the pot at the end of the rainbow. The leprechaun theme is ever popular but we especially like to have a go on this video slot around St. Patrick’s day when the luck of the Irish is in the air. Not too old for modern technology as these reels will spin perfectly on any current device and is available on mobile.

Have a go on Charms and Clovers video slot and see if you’re able to charm the luck of the Irish.

Cleopatra's Gold Video Slot

Game review: Cleopatra's Gold

If there wasn’t already a separate category of casino slots, named classic slots then, then this video slot would have created the category. That’s how old Cleopatra's Gold video slot looks and feels. Almost as old as ancient Egypt herself. This is one of Realtime Gaming's older slots and it shows. Luckily for Cleopatra and her Gold, there are generally two things us online casino gamblers look for in an online slot machine: winning entertainment and visual entertainment. Sure there’s more, the aural entertainment, time on device, etc. etc. but those are secondary attributes. Cleopatra's Gold does not have modern, exciting graphics on display. The animations are basic, but present nevertheless, and the imagery is very two dimensional. But what she lacks in visual entertainment she makes up for in winning entertainment.

The 5x3 game grid covers up to 20 paylines, selectable between 1 and 20 via the up and down buttons at the bottom of the game screen or, more easily, via the line counters on either side of the reels. You can bet between a penny and a dime per line, so Cleopatra's Gold can be played as a penny slot or up to $2 per spin.

The reels are set on papyrus, over the sands of the desert. There are some sand dunes on the horizon and a blue sky covers the top of the screen, where you find the balance, bet and win boxes. On the horizon also lies the Random Jackpot box.

The slot symbols are a mix of contemporary characters and contemporarily styled card symbols.

We start with a 9 and 10, which pay out between 5 and 10 coins for 3 to 5 appearances. Next up is the Jack and Queen, paying between 5 and 125. The King and Ace pay between 5 and 150. Then come the contemporary symbols which start paying out from 2 appearances. First comes an Ankh which pays between 2 and 300 coins for 2 to 5 appearances. Then an ancient Egyptian artist’s impression of a cat, paying the same as the Ankh. Next up is the Eye of Horus, which pays between 2 and 1,000 coins. Matching that for payouts is the Scarab Seal (the Scarab Beetle and Amulet). The highest paying symbol of the online video slot is, of course, Cleopatra herself, she pays out between 10 and 10,000 coins. In between it all is a scatter, as well.

There are some rudimentary animations included in the game. While most of the symbols, when activated, just flash on the screen to show you your winning payline, Cleopatra lifts her head, her hair blowing in the breeze ever so slightly, and a diamond in her crown shines in the sun. The pyramid symbol’s top section spins and a blinding light shines out from within it.

There is no background music to Cleopatra's Gold online video slot during normal play and the standard winning sound reminds one of a casino lobby, as if you’re playing old school Vegas slots online. When Cleopatra is involved in a win, though, then we get some percussion instruments playing a pleasant enough tune.


Features

Cleopatra's Gold features a Wild, a Scatter, a Free Spins Feature and a Random Jackpot.

The Autoplay feature is RTG’s old, full function system. When you hit the autoplay button you’re greeted by a screen with a plethora of options with which to set up your auto spins.

There’s also a Turbo Play option, within the Slots menu, to speed up the reels and coin counting. There is no option to stop the reels, though, and so every spin must be allowed to take its course.

A strong contributor to the frequent payouts achieved by Cleopatra's Gold video slot online is the fact that all symbols, except the suit of cards, pay out from just 2 appearances on an active pay line.

Wild

Cleopatra, apart from being the highest paying symbol in the casino game, is also the Wild symbol. She plays substitute for any other symbol in the game, except the scatter pyramid symbol, and seems very keen to show her face, appearing in almost every spin played during our audit of the online slot machine. You’ll be glad to see her pretty face, too, as she doubles the standard pay table values when making an appearance on an active payline.

Scatter

The Pyramid is the scatter and pays out whenever it appears in two or more locations, anywhere on the reels. Two appearances will get you 2 coins, three will get you 5 coins, four for 20 and a Pyramid on every reel will get you 500 coins. The scatter cannot be influenced by Cleopatra the Wild.

Free Spins Feature

The Scatter symbol, the Pyramid, is also the trigger for the free spins feature. Land 3 or more Pyramid symbols anywhere on the slot reels and you’re in for 15 free spins - that’s a generous amount of free spins.

When you enter the Free Spins mode the background changes to a wall covered in beautiful engravings and hieroglyphics, and some background music comes into play. Full on ancient Egyptian stringed, wind and percussion instruments form the background music. It’s quite an exciting beat and can last a while, too, as the free spins feature is readily retriggered during the video slot’s feature.

You’ll also be happy to find that all wins are tripled during the free spins feature.

Random Jackpot

Cleopatra's Gold video slot features a random jackpot in the form of a progressive jackpot. The progressive jackpot is built up by the extremely large network but is designed to trigger frequently rather than build up to an exceptionally large value. The jackpot can be triggered at the end of any game round, win or lose. So chasing this progressive jackpot means you’ll want to play low coin sizes on this video slot, in order to ensure that you play as many spins as possible.


The riches of ancient Egypt has captured the imaginations of book writers for centuries, movie makers for decades, and USA video slot producers and American online casino fans have not been able to avoid the lure. There are probably as many ancient Egyptian video slots out there as there are wolf themed video slots online.

While Cleopatra's Gold video slot offers winning opportunities aplenty, we feel the game could use a, at least, graphical update to bring it up to speed. Although, those with slower internet connections and older computers and mobile phones will certainly appreciate these older, data light video slots.

The Directory of Slots awards this Ancient Queen of video slots 3 stars out of a maximum of 5.

Crazy Vegas Video Slot

Game review: Crazy Vegas

Vegas themed video slots are great fun to play as they have the effect of reminding us of the mecca of it all: Las Vegas, Nevada. Realtime Gaming’s (RTG) take on the Vegas slot does so especially well with the colors, the neon palm trees, and the big jackpot signs that adorn the slot machine. The video slot’s reels add to the effect by containing brightly colored symbols including dice, a roulette wheel, cards, a showgirl, Sinatra, Elvis, stacks of cash and exciting bonus symbols. The ever present jackpot meter at the top center of the online slot helps to keep the winning potential top of mind. There are just 20 lines to the 5x3 slot and you can play it as a penny slot all the way up to $20 per spin. The random progressive jackpot is not related to your bet value so we suggest playing all 20 lines and finding a coin value that suits your budget and free time.

Make no mistake, this is an old video slot and it shows, but the old school charm and casino sounds and music have the effect of making one feel as if they’re sitting at an actual Vegas slot machine, biding away the time and looking forward to a good show. The features on off offer belie the video slot’s age.


Features

For an old school progressive jackpot video slot, Crazy Vegas sure has a lot of bonus features to offer. We have a Wild, back then called a Substitute, a Scatter, a Free Spins Feature, a Big Bonus Game and, of course, the progressive jackpot.

Bet values are easily set by up and down arrows, displaying your coin size, line count and the calculated total bet. There are no speed settings but the reels spin at just the right pace. To speed things up you can make use of the stop button that immediately replaces the spin button once the online slot machine is activated. Autoplay is a very simplistic setup here, hit Auto Play and it starts spinning the reels, hit Stop Auto and it stops. 

Wild

The Crazy Vegas symbol is the substitute and will take the place of any symbols other than the two bonus symbols. Note that it does not add a multiplier to line wins and is not the highest paying symbol, that honor goes to the stacks of cash which pays out up to 300 times the line bet.

Scatter

The Crazy Vegas symbol is also a scatter so, while substituting for other symbols, 3, 4 or 5 appearances anywhere on the reels will earn you an additional pay out. 3 Crazy Vegas symbols will get you a 5x payout, 4 for 20x and 5 for 100x.

Free Spins Feature

The Free Spins Feature of Crazy Vegas video slot is especially fun. Easily triggered by the Free Spins casino chips appearing on reels 2, 3 and 4, the feature then moves on to the exciting part: the casino chips spin to reveal the number of free spins that you’ve won, made up by the sum of the numbers appearing on the first 2 chips, and the multiplier that will be applied to your winnings displayed on the 3rd casino chip.

Big Bonus Game

A feature game triggered by only 2 symbols! If you see the Big Bonus symbol on the first and last reels of the video slot then you’re in luck, you’re about to play the Big Bonus Game. This video slot bonus games takes you away from the slot reels and on to a new screen altogether. Here you’ll be presented with a large outer wheel and a smaller inner wheel encompassing a Big Bonus button, hit the button to get the wheels going. The bigger wheel spins clockwise while the smaller wheel spins anticlockwise. Once the wheels stop you’ll see two winning number, the product of which is multiplied by your total bet to determine your winnings.

Progressive Jackpot

The Progressive Jackpot of Crazy Vegas video slot is a random jackpot, so there are no jackpot symbols on the reels to detract from the line wins and video slot bonus games. The progressive jackpot can be won at the end of any spin, win or lose, so the aim of the game here is to have as many spins as possible.


Bringing a Vegas slot to the homes of USA online casino players has been the task of Crazy Vegas video slot for over a decade now and, while it could probably do with a facelift, we still enjoy the old school charm and the abundance of video slot bonus games and features that it contains. This online casino game lacks nothing and surprised us all once we got to playing.

The Directory of Slots awards the Crazy Vegas random Progressive Jackpot video slot 4 out of 5 stars.

Eternal Love Video Slot

Game review: Eternal Love

At the height of the Vampire Diaries and Twilight era, Realtime Gaming (RTG) created Eternal Love Video Slot to pick up on the theme and draw in the fans. Vampires have been in fashion for decades now, but vampire love stories have come to the fore in the last decade or so, and a good, modern take on the vampire video slots is truly welcome. Eternal Love video slot is set in a spooky graveyard, of course, with candles, lanterns and other vampire paraphernalia adorning the slot reels and making up the buttons. It’s very dark, indeed, with just a few choice colors used to highlight the special symbols. Those symbols are made up of a suit of cards, 9 to Ace, all set on tombstones, a ring and a broach, a bad boy vampire, a fancily dressed and very pale vampire, and the highest paying symbol: a pretty Bella. The online slot machine’s background music is slow, dark and classical, turning to rock when celebrating your casino winnings.

The videoslot is of the 243 lines all ways pays variety, which also means it always pays. The minimum bet per spin is $0.30 and, depending on the online casino you play at, the maximum is usually set to $3. Since this is a fixed, 243 line video slot, setting your bet values is a one option affair, just hit the up and down buttons at the vials of blood. Being one of the new video slots by RTG there’s constant animation and activity, even if you’re just watching the game for a minute before starting to play. Once playing you’ll see all the icons animate when activated and the feature games bring about wholesale changes.


Features

Eternal Love Video Slot features a Wild which is far from straightforward, a Scatter, a Free Games Feature and a special Extended Life Feature.

The slot machine features a 3 speed setting with a stop reel function on the two slower speeds, auto play which is quite advanced in that hitting the Autoplay button brings up a shortcut menu with increments between 5 and 100 and a Feature Trigger button that will stop upon a triggered feature game. There’s also a cog for more in depth settings.

Another winning feature of the video slot is the fact that all symbols except the suit of cards pay out from just 2 appearances.

Wild

The Eternal Love symbol is wild and substitutes for all except the scatters. It’s a grouped wild so sometimes covers the entire reel when appearing on reels 2 and 4, as those are the only reels of the slot machine that host the wild. Wilds that form part of a win display a multiplier between 1x and 3x, multiplying wins accordingly.

Scatter

The Coin symbol is the scatter and multiplies wins by the total bet. You get your bet back for two scatter appearances, 2 times your bet for three, 25 times for four and 200 times for five.

Free Spins Feature

The scattered Coins also trigger the free spins feature. You may get a payout for 2 Coins, but 3 or more Coins will also get you 10 free spins. There’s a Life Force Meter on the top right that activates with the Free Spins Feature. The meter hides a value of between 3 and 10 times your bet. Once your 10 free spins are completed the Life Force Meter shows it’s value and if the winnings from your free spins feature is lower than the Life Force Meter then you’re in luck, you move on to the next feature.

Extended Life Feature

Should your free spins have run out while leaving you with less in winnings than the Life Force Meter expected then you’re moved on to the Extended Life Feature. You get extra free spins until your video slot winnings reach the Life Force Meter’s value but there’s a catch: the Life Force Meter continues to increase. Each extra free spin awarded causes the Life Force Meter to increase by 1 to 10 times your initial bet making it harder to catch, and causing you to continue to receive extra free spins. The fun has to stop somewhere and RTG have decided that a good place to stop the Extended Life Feature is at 1,000 times your bet. In our test of the game we hit the Extended Life Feature once, getting us an extra 67 free spins and consequently winning 94 times our bet value!


These modern day vampires are no longer isolated to Transylvania, having made their way over to the United States for the movies and TV shows, and now they’ve found their way into USA friendly online casinos’ video slots thanks to Realtime Gaming. The theme may be for a bit of a younger generation but it carries over into a successful videoslot well enough and has features for everyone.

Eternal Love Video Slot earns a 3 star rating from the Directory of Slots.
