Fucanglong Video Slot

Game review: Fucanglong

Fucanglong video slot is set in ancient China and borrows its name from the mythological dragons of the underworld whom guard natural and man made treasures that are buried beneath the earth’s surface, causing volcanoes to erupt when they emerge to report to heaven.

Beautiful colors and classical sounds abound, and the in game animations are exciting, especially the dragon itself weaving through the reels.


Features

Fucanglong online video slot, the basis of this casino game review, offers 3 distinct features namely the Dragon Mountain feature, the Dragon Pearl feature and the Fucanglong Feature. And, of course, the fact that this is an All Ways Pays video slot.

Dragon Mountain

Three or more of the Dragon Mountain symbols will trigger this slot feature. Players are awarded with 8 free spins. The feature can be retriggered during the free spins in which case a further 3 free spins are awarded and the prize multiplier increases by 1x, up to a limit of 8x.

If you were fortunate enough to have the feature game triggered by more than 3 Dragon Mountain symbols then the Dragon symbol, which is the wild, will transform into an expanding wild for the duration of the free spins mode.

Dragon Pearl

Three or more Dragon Pearl symbols trigger 8 free spins, as above. The difference this time is that a Pearl hides a secret win value, between 3x and 88x the original bet value. Once the 8 free spins is completed, the Pearl reveals it’s win value and if you’ve won less than the pearl expects then you get entered into the Fucanglong Feature.

Fucanglong Feature

By not winning enough to meet the Pearl’s requirement, you now get to do so by way of additional free spins. You see a Pearl Value Meter showing you the expected coin value in winnings, and you get free spins until you reach it. The catch, or actually the extra win, being that the Pearl Value meter continues to increase by 1x to 8x the original bet value until you reach it, so this is one bet you don’t want to win in a hurry. It can go all the way up to 888x your original bet before it stops and waits for you to catch up.

The Dragon wild is an expanding wild during the Fucanglong Feature, as well.


It might seem a little complicated at first but it’s simply allowing you many ways to win, and you can choose to be a passenger through all of it as it is still, after all, a game of luck. The All-Ways-Pays set up goes a long way towards simplifying the game play and RTG casinos offer the option to speed up the reels should you so wish.

Ghost Ship Video Slot

Game review: Ghost Ship

The pirate theme mixed in with a ghost ship makes for a great Halloween online video slot, with the all year, evergreen theme of a pirate online slot machine. Realtime Gaming’s 2015 take on the theme is extraordinarily done and looks and feels like a very new video slot.

During standard game play the dark background is a pirate ship silhouetted by a full moon with another ship wrecked against some rocks, all observed from the beach of an island with some palms and a very rocky entrance. The reels are set front and center of the video slot screen with the sea barely visible behind. Flanking the reels on either side is the line counter, it’s an active line counter that you can use to select the number of lines, but is brightly colored and very much out of place against the dark themed game, despite a chain linking them, bringing a little of the theme through. Bottom of the reels is a standard game console with the bet selector which increases the bet size a penny at a time, per line. Then the autoplay button, next is the line selector, which you could do without as the above mentioned line counters on the sides of the game serve the same purpose but with more ease, and finally you have the spin button on the right. With the line count set to 1, Ghost Ship video slot online can be played as a penny slot, increase that to 25 coins and get the bet amount up to the max and you’ll be betting 50 cents per line for a total of $12.50 per spin Our recommendation to win the most from this video slot is to set the line bet to the maximum of 25 and use the coin (bet) size to vary your bets. At the top of the online video slot screen you’ll find your account balance, Bet and Win boxes, followed by the two, Minor and Major, progressive jackpot values. Ghost Ship Video Slot is a progressive jackpot online casino game. They’re all in a well suited font and the boxes have borders of moss and rusty metals. At the very bottom, out of the video slot screen you have the menu and help buttons. Help is where you’ll find the paytable and game rules.

At the lower end of the paytable you’ll find a beautifully recreated suit of cards in an old English text covered in seaweed and algae. The Nine, Ten, Jack and Queen are equals and pay out between 5 and 100 coins for three to five appearances. The Ace and King that follow pay out between 5 and 150 coins for three to five appearances each. Next up is a broken armed mermaid statue that lies at the bottom of the sea, she pays out from two appearances, 2 coins, up to 250 coins for 5 appearances. Third from the top is the ghost ship’s cannon, also laying at the bottom of the sea, paying out between 2 and 500 coins for two to five appearances on an active payline. Second from the top is a treasure chest loaded with diamonds and pearls, it pays out between 3 and 1,000 coins for two to five appearances. Highest of the standard symbols is the ship’s bell, branded Flying Dutchman, it pays out between 5 and 1,250 coins for two to five appearances. There are two special symbols as well, in the forms of the Ghost Ship itself and the Jack Sparrow looking pirate. The two special symbols have exciting animations to display. The ghost pirate expands out of his reel with a green glow about him, gives us a Arrrr and turns to fire a shot at the screen. The ghost ship also expands out of it’s blocks and bobs about, making some waves.

Other than some dramatic music played when bigger wins are being counted up, the online video slot has standard Vegas slots sounds to it.


Features

Ghost Ship video slot features a Wild, a Scatter, a Free Games Feature and the two progressive jackpots.

An added benefit is the higher paying symbols paying out from just two appearances. That goes for all symbols except the suit of cards and so adds many additional winning opportunities.

The autoplay is RTG’s old, cumbersome system that takes a few clicks to get going. The video slot does not have an immediately visible speed setting, but within the slot options menu you’ll find a Turbo Play option which speeds the reels up sufficiently. Apart from that, the game also has a stop reels function where the Spin button changes into a Stop button once the reels are spinning, so you can time your own spins and wins. 

Wild

The Ghost Captain is the Wild symbol and will take the place of any other symbols except the scatter. On his own he’ll pay out between 10 and 2,500 coins for two to five appearances on an active payline. He’s a randomly expanding Wild, which means that he’ll expand to take over the entire reel on random occasions, but we found this to be the case more often than not during our audit of the online video slot.

An added feature to the Wild is that he’ll also randomly take up the remaining reel when a scatter symbol appears, giving you extra winning opportunities on the remaining reels.

Scatter

The Ghost Ship is the scatter symbol and pays out between 2 and 100 coins for three to five appearances anywhere on the reels and not necessarily on an active pay line.

Those may seem like small payouts but that’s because the Scatter also activates the Free Games Feature.

Free Spins Feature

Three or more of the Scattered Ghost Ship symbol activates the video slot’s free games feature.

Each Ghost Ship appearing gives you 2 free spins, these are all then added up to get the total number of free spins that you’ll be awarded. There is also a multiplier to the free games feature that is controlled by the number of Ghost Ships that triggered the feature.

Three Ghost Ships give you six free spins at normal payout table win rates.

Four Ghost Ships give you eight free spins at double the standard payout rate.

Five Ghost Ships give you ten free spins at 10x the paytable rate.

Extra free spins can be triggered during the free games feature when 3 or more Ghost Ships appear. The Wild Ghost Captain is fully active during the free spins feature meaning he’ll expand on every opportunity and cover the Scatter’s reel on every appearance.

During the free spins feature the background brightens up substantially and we no longer see a wrecked ship, but just a good one bobbing around on the open sea.

Free Spin wins are counted up against a treasure map background.

Progressive Jackpot

Ghost Ship video slot is a progressive jackpot online casino game with 2 jackpots: RTG’s wide network minor and major jackpots. The jackpot is the random type that can be triggered at the end of any spin, win or lose. There’s no combination needed, leaving extra space in the reels for pay line wins, and just having a spin could get you the jackpot, so with Ghost Ship video slot a good tip is to play many spins rather than high value spins.


Ghost Ship video slot may seem old when you first read that it was actually created in 2015, but the only clue to its age is the autoplay interface. The rest of the game is modern and efficient, giving you the impression of a new video slot. The features all have an extra point added to them and we like that innovation from Realtime Gaming, it takes a little while to get used to all the extra features but the extra winning opportunities are welcome additions. Grab a freebie from the Directory Of Slots and give it a go, but don’t forget to follow our video slots tips and play the maximum number of lines, and keep your budget in mind if you want to play long and give yourself the extra opportunities to hit the progressive jackpots.

We’ve rated Jack Sparrow and his Flying Dutchman of an online video slot 4 stars out of a maximum of 5.

Giovanni's Gems Video Slot

Game review: Giovanni's Gems

Tag along on a truly memorable adventure with Giovanni, the Gem Hunter on this rapid, vibrant and vivid 7 line video slot with a massive 7 by 7 game grid.

Traverse through a thick forest to find a hidden cave filled with a beautiful array of raw gemstones. Match 5 or more symbols in a group and cash in on giant wins through the cascading reels where you’ll be rewarded with unlimited chances for even bigger wins.
Coal symbols adjacent to winning sets are compressed into the Diamond symbol, the highest value symbol in the online casino game.


Features

This video slot has three standout features: Giovanni’s free spins; Giovanni’s Diamonds and Cluster wins & Explosive wins.

Giovanni’s free spins

Hitting 5 or ore Giovanni symbols on an active payline triggers the free spins feature. A standout of which is the fact that the lowest (Coal) symbols are replaced by the highest (Diamond) symbols, talk about a bonus!

Giovanni’s Diamonds

During normal play, as in not the free spins rounds, any Coal symbols adjacent to a winning set are crushed into Diamond symbols, the highest paying symbol in the game. Diamond Symbols are also the scatter symbols in this video slot, meaning they will pay out by appearing anywhere on the active reels, not necessarily next to each other.

Cluster wins & Explosive wins

Rather than the standard paylines, this video slot offers what they call Cluster Pays, meaning that five or more matching symbols adjacent to one another trigger the wins. Once a win is hit and paid out, the entire winning cluster explodes, causing the symbols above to drop into place, possibly triggering another win and the process repeats itself indefinitely, until there are no matching symbols to trigger a payout.


This video slot is compatible with all the current platforms that you’ll need including desktop (PC and Mac) and mobile (iOS, Android and Windows’ WinPhone).

Various coin sizes and betting levels are set up to cater for every type of online gambler, from low rollers to high rollers and everyone in between.

This video slot is a little different than most online gamblers are used to in its payout execution so we suggest that you take up a free spins offer to see how it works before making a deposit and playing for the big wins.

Gods of Nature Video Slot

Game review: Gods of Nature

Gods of Nature, Tian Di Yuan Su, is a very modern and bright take on an ancient Chinese theme. Oriental online slots have always been very popular but there haven’t been that many new releases recently so this is a welcome fresh addition - thank you, Realtime Gaming. This game isn’t the typical pots and dragons but rather the balance between the Sun and Moon with 5 elements of the Earth: fire, water, earth, metal and wood. Join in the fun and have your share of the ancient wealth.


Features

Gods of Nature video slot has many features apart from the bright colors and beautiful artwork. There are also online video slot gameplay features. We have scatter free spins, bonus picks and a retrigger, and the Spirit of Sun wild. All free spins related bonus features.

Scatter Free Spins

The Spirit of moon symbol is a scatter symbol, meaning it needn’t be on consecutive reels in order to be activated. 3 or more Spirit of Moon symbols gives you 8 free spins and activates the Bonus Picks feature. Wins are also doubles during the free spins mode, doubled at a minimum.

Retriggering the free spins during the feature adds 15 free spins at a time.

Bonus Picks

3 Spirit of the Moon Symbols, apart from the 8 free spins, gives you 2 bonus picks. 4 scatters give you 4 bonus picks and 5 gives you 5 bonus picks. The bonus picks are used to award players with extra free spins and extra win multipliers, above the automatic double. The maximum to be awarded is 33 free spins and the 15x multiplier.

Spirit of Sun wild

The wild symbol is the Sun and it substitutes for any symbol in the video slot’s paytable except for the scatter Spirit of Moon symbol. All prizes are doubled up when the Wild symbol is present and on an active payline.


Going by the name Tian Di Yuan Su in some markets, USA casino players should be looking for the online video slot by the name Gods of Nature. The possibility of landing 33 free spins at a 15x multiplier is hard to resist, even if there is only a standard maximum payout of 50,000 credits and no progressive jackpot. The slot is set to maximum lines as standard and this is fixed, cannot be changed. The bet per line is where you’ll control the value that you’ll wager per spin of the reels. Ancient and modern Chinese themed games are plentiful, but there aren’t many new ones so for those looking for the most modern graphics and the best build for gambling on your mobile phone, this will be your freshest bet.

Halloween Treasures Video Slot

Game review: Halloween Treasures

Here we have it, Realtime Gaming’s online video slot release for Halloween 2019: Halloween Treasures Video Slot. As the years go by these games tend to get better and better because, of course, USA online casinos catering to mostly North American (US and Canadian) players love a good Halloween promotion. And nothing makes for better promotions than bringing a brand new video slot online.

This Halloween slot has it all. From the spooky background music of piano, howling ghosts and chuckling crazies, to a full and modern slot layout with all the Halloween decorations you could need. The background is just a clay brick wall with a couple of mounted lights and a string of lights up top, but the jack-o-lanterns, candles, vines and a black cat add all the adornment necessary. The video slot feature boxes are shrouded in vines and the slot reels itself is set on a blackboard nailed to the wall. It’s all quite bright, but that serves to accentuate the dark and scary corners.

During the video slots free spins feature, though, the background changes do a darker hue, with a yellow glow. But the music is a lot faster and more upbeat.

At the bottom left of the screen you’ll find an i for information. This takes you straight to the pay table. Following that is the bet size selector. This is a 243 line all-ways-pays online video slot, so all you’ve got to do is choose your coin size and the rest is taken care of for you. You can choose between a penny and a dime, with every penny increment in between. With that massive amount of paylines, though, you can’t actually bet a penny on a spin. The minimum bet would be 8 cents and the maximum on a single spin of the reels would be $8.80. Your bets, and the following box for wins, are helpfully displayed in USD. Seeing as this is a 243 line casino game, our recommendation to make sure you win the most at this online video slot is simply to set the coins to your budget and make the most amount of spins possible, in order to increase your chances of hitting the progressive jackpots.

The slot symbols are not terrifying as you might expect, but play well with the theme of the online slot machine. The lower end of the paytable starts with a suit of cards. They’re created as grave stones, set on freshly turned dirt. They are all equal and will pay out 5, 8 or 15 coins for 3, 4 or 5 appearances. These are all the standard symbols, all other symbols come with an added feature where their Golden versions can be activated.

The first is a bottle of potion, this symbol is Golden as standard and can’t be switched off. It pays between 8 and 100 for 3 to 5 appearances.

Next is a symbol of 3 candles. This symbol pays out between 5 and 20 coins in standard form and between 10 and 150 coins in activated form.

Third is a witch’s hat, paying out between 5 and 20 in standard form, and between 20 and 200 in Golden form.

The second highest symbol is the vampire. Dracula here pays out between 5 and 30 in standard form and between 30 and 300 when activated.

The highest paying standard symbols is the Jack-o-lantern, paying out between 5 and 30 in standard color and between 60 and 600 in Golden form.

Golden form brings a bright golden glow to all the symbols, as if they’re ablaze. Standard form shows that the symbols are actually beautifully created. They’re a sight to see, but the winning opportunity of having them activated in Golden form far outweighs the aesthetic pleasure. Animations are reserved for the special symbols, of which there are three to this online video slot.


Features

Halloween Treasures online video slot features two Wilds, a Scatter, a Free games feature, a Halloween Jackpot feature and a total of 4 progressive jackpots. There’s also the bet multiplier that we briefly touched on above.

The Autoplay system of this video slot is a modern, 1 touch system. Hit the autoplay button and the reels start spinning. You can use the stop button to end the run of autospins, or wait until a feature game is hit. The Free Spins Feature does not stop the autospins, the autospins will play through your free spins but will stop at the end of the free spins where the wins are counted up.

There’s a smart new console on the bottom left where you’ll find settings like sound, etc. Here too, you’ll find the speed settings. Looking like a play button, clicking the speed settings presents you with standard speed and double speed for the video slot reels. There’s also a stop reels feature, where the spin button turns into a stop button as soon as the first reel is set in place. This stop button is available at standard speed and at double speed, so you always have the chance to time your own wins. 

Wilds

The first Wild is the door to the witch’s house. The door appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only and substitutes for all symbols except the other wild. There is no multiplier added by this wild symbol, but, curiously, it has the most entertaining animation in the entire game. When one of the witch’s doors appears, activated on a payline or not, it opens up and feeds some gems into a basket at the top of the video slot reels, exciting the jack-o-lanterns in the area in the process - for no apparent reason.

The other wild is the Grim Reaper and Gravestone symbol. This wild appears in the third reel only and can play for all symbols except the first Wild and the Scatter. When this Wild is activated on a payline then wins are multiplied by the number of Golden symbols you have in play. So 1x if you have just the potion bottle as a Golden symbol, up to 5x if you have all the Golden symbols activated. 

Scatter

The symbol for the Scatter is the Magic Globe. The Scatter pays out 5 coins for 3 appearances, 10 coins for 4 and 50 coins for 5 appearances. It is the highest paying video slot symbol without a Golden option and also triggers the free spins feature. Scatter wins are multiplied by the total bet but, peculiarly, scatters need to form up from left to right on the reels and are not activated if split up.

Free Spins Feature

Three or more of the Scattered Magic Globe symbols appearing from left to right on the slot reels activates the online video slots free games bonus round. You get 12 free spins to start with, and the free spins can be reactivated during the feature game, awarding you with 12 extra free spins each time. An extra bonus to the free spins feature is that the low paying suit of cards symbols are absent from the slots reels, leaving plenty of extra room for the high paying symbols. The change of background colors and the music tempo that RTG introduces make for exciting free online video slots with bonus rounds.

Progressive Jackpot

This is the complicated part.

There are 4 progressive jackpots to Halloween Treasures video slot: the Mini, Minor, Major and Grand jackpots. As with most RTG progressive jackpot slots, they are random - sort of. Rather than being randomly triggered at the end of any game round, the progressive jackpots here can be randomly triggered at the end of any round containing the Wild door symbol.

The jackpots that you have available to you are determined by the number of Golden Symbols you have active at the time. If you have just the Potion Bottle active as a Golden Symbol then no jackpots are available. Activate the candle symbol and the Mini jackpot is the one you’ll receive. Any more than that and you’ll be entered into the Halloween Jackpot Feature.

Halloween Jackpot Feature

So you have more than 2 Golden Symbols active, have landed a Wild symbol and have been entered into the random Halloween Jackpot Feature. You’ll be presented with 12 magical coins from which you must choose 3. There are 4 types of coins available, each one representing one of the 4 progressive jackpots. Should you land 3 matching symbols, then the jackpot that that symbol represents is the one that you’ll be awarded. At this point you’re guaranteed a jackpot win, so mismatched symbols simply get you the lowest variant.


Halloween Treasures video slot is the newest Halloween themed online video slot available at the moment (as at Oct. 16 2019) and, with RTG’s latest video slot interface, it’s a thoroughly modern take on the theme and a brand new video slot to boot. This will probably be one of the top online video slots for the remainder of the year and so those progressive jackpots will change hands many times over the next few months. Get in on the action and make sure that you’re one of those lucky winners. The way to win at this video slot is to make sure that you have at least 2 Golden Symbols active when playing, to make sure that you’re in with a chance for at least one progressive jackpot. 

The Directory of Slots awards this new video slot built for Halloween 2019 4 stars out of a maximum of 5.

The Heroes Video Slot

Game review: The Heroes

The Heroes video slot is unique. It’s available to play to the US friendly casino market through Vegas Crest casino and that’s it. At the Directory of Slots we feel like we should do a review on Mobilots as a whole for how scarcely seen their games are. Most of our readers have probably never heard of it.

With the backdrop of a city and an ACME tower, the reels are spun on a completely transparent 5x3 video slot grid. It’s only a 10 line game (with selectable lines between 1 and 10) but it pays left to right and right to left which is awesome! We thoroughly enjoyed the execution of the superhero theme with the classic costumes and science laboratory effects.

Bets and payouts are handled in Dollars as opposed to coins, making for easy to understand quick gameplay. The fast paced background music adds to the effect.


Features

The video slot features include a Wild planet symbol Free Spins, not named free games by Mobilots, and a multiplier machine symbol.

The game is highly mobile-centric, built with mobile casinos in mind, and so the button arrangements are easy and clear. There’s a chip on the bottom left that gives you access to choose your coins and lines, a lightning bolt button on the top right to select the game speed and a + symbol bottom right to select a number for autospins.

Wild

The Wild symbol always expands to cover the entire reel, almost ensuring a win, but there’s more to it yet: whether you get a winning combination or not, the wild symbol stays in place while triggering a respin. Get another wild symbol and they’ll both stay in place while triggering yet another respin. You can get up to 3 respins in a row this way. This video slot machine Guarantees wins.

Free Spins

The Free Spins symbol is also a scatter so triggering the slot feature is easier than if it were to have to appear consecutively on a pay line. Three free spins symbols will get you 5 free spins. Four for 10 free spins and five symbols for 20 spins. Get a Wild symbol and you’ll get respins during the freespins.

Win Multiplier

The Win Multiplier symbol is a sort of machine that produces your multiplied winnings. It’s also a scatter symbol. Get 2 or more of these symbols anywhere on the reels and your winnings will be multiplied by either 2, 4, 6 or 8, depending on whether you got 2, 3, 4 or 5 multipliers.


Superhero video slots are as fun as they are scarce. Throw in all the features that Mobilots has thrown into The Heroes video slot and you have a fun game that, we reiterate: guarantees wins. We’ve given this videoslot 5 stars.

Team up with The Heroes to defeat bad beats and collect the cash.

Johnny Jungle Video Slot

Game review: Johnny Jungle

Johnny Jungle and the Hidden Temple, that’s the full name of this video slot machine, but we’ll go by Johnny Jungle as it’s quite a mouthful. After a few spins you might, if you hit a series of unfortunate wins like I did, think to yourself: “oh my, is he going to say YEAH with every payline hit!” but let me reassure you that, indeed, he does not. Different winning combinations do trigger specific sound effects. But he does say yeah quite frequently.

Set in a South American looking jungle with the background looking like a Mayan temple, our muscular, broad chinned protagonist has come well equipped to deal with the dangers and obstacles that may come his way. The videoslot is a few years old already but all the activated symbols animate in an entertaining fashion. The basic symbols are a suit of cards, 9 through Ace, made of rock. Then a walkie-talkie, an exotic looking flower, a pocket compass, a pair of binoculars and a utility knife, followed by the three feature symbols.

Pleasant tribal/adventure music sets the tone for a fun video slot adventure, in which 25 paylines make for constant action and the floating symbols, seemingly bereft of the 5x3 grid on which they play, are truly immersive.

Every once in a while Johnny will come into the shot and perform a little trick for your entertainment. Either running and rolling across the screen or entering from the top, performing a perfect landing before running out of shot again.


Features

Johnny Jungle video slot features a Wild, a feature game called Pick an Idol Bonus where you get to pick an idol for a prize, and a free spins feature.

The coin size goes down to a penny and up to a quarter, with up to 10 coins to bet at a time you can play this video slot for a penny, or any value you wish up to $62.50. The spin button turns into a stop button once the first reel lands so you can stop it at will for those perfectly timed wins. There is also an autoplay function for those lazy fingers.

Wild

Johnny himself is the wild symbol for this game, as well as the highest paying standard symbol. When activated to substitute for a missing symbol, any symbol other than the 2 bonus symbols, and bring in the wins he does so in style by doubling the winning value.

During the slot’s free spins feature Johnny becomes a sticky wild when activated, at the same time triggering a respin! Additional sticky wilds will trigger additional re-spins and they all, well, stick around until all respins are complete.

Pick an Idol Bonus feature

Get 3 of the scatter golden idols and you’re instantly rewarded with 1, 5 or 25 coins depending on whether you got just 3, or 4 or 5 idols. No scatter wins for 2 idols, I’m afraid. You also get to pick one of the idols to reveal a prize and believe me, there are thousands of coins behind those idols.

Free Spins feature

The red faced, gorilla looking chap is the symbol for free spins. He’s a scatter as well, but awards 10, 15 or 30 free spins depending on whether you see 3, 4 or 5 of him. Don’t forget about the Sticky Wild that occurs only during the Free Spins feature.


Fancy an adventure while you enjoy the leisure of online casino gambling from the comfort of your home or anywhere you like to enjoy your mobile casinos from? Look no further, Johnny Jungle and the Hidden Temple offers plenty of exciting wins and online entertainment for everyone.

We’ve awarded the charming Johnny and his long named video slot 4 out of 5 stars.

Jr. Jungle Video Slot

Game review: Jr. Jungle

There aren’t many jungle themed online video slots, but we do get a few featuring Tarzan or a lost treasure hunt theme now and then. Jr. Jungle Video Slot is different in that the game features baby animals and is more of a Jungle Book themed online slot. The animal characters are super cute with big eyes and happy expressions. The background of the slot is, obviously, a jungle and it seems to have a rather thick canopy as it’s quite dark. But that works well to not detract from the bright colors of the video slot symbols at play.

The background music of the online casino game is best described as tribal jungle music. It’s the kind of tune you’d hear at Sun City in South Africa, if you’ve ever been or watched the movie Blended which is set there. There’s a slow tune when the game is at idle and a faster tune when the slots are in play, through it all there are some birds chirping and general jungle noises going on in the background. Wins are counted up to a pleasant xylophone sound.

This video slot machine was created by Mobilots, which has a strong focus on producing casino games for the mobile casino player, and this can be seen in the clean layout of the game play buttons.

To the bottom left you get a casino chip button. This is the bet size selector and you can quickly choose between a nickel and $5 coin sizes. Between 1 and 30 lines means this is never really a penny slot and you can play it all the way up to $150 per spin.

Top left of the slot screen you have a menu button which quickly opens the paytable. It’s not a plain old paytable, though, this one is smart: it displays the payouts in Dollar values which are live according to the bet you’ve selected. You also have the option to switch the sounds on/off, game information and game history within this menu.

Where the fun is found is in the 3 button console on the right of the slot reels. There’s a big Spin button, a lightning bolt above it that speeds up the game play and a + button below it for autoplay. Don’t feel like using the spin button? In true mobile casino fashion, you can spin the reels by simply pulling down anywhere on the game grid. This works on the desktop casino as well, using the mouse to pull down the reels.

Top of the reels has a multiplier section on a leaf that we’ll explain in the features section.

All the buttons disappear when the video slot reels are in motion, keeping your focus squarely on the game round at play.

Front and center is the 5x3 slot game grid. Hit the spin button and it drops out of view, with the beat of a drum. New symbols drop into place to display your winning combination.

There are seven standard symbols, and none of them are playing cards. The lowest paying symbol is a little green Frog, he croaks twice when activated and pays out between 3 and 50 coins. Next up is a monkey with a bewildered look on his face as he looks at a lady bug that sits on his hand, he does a little chatter when activated and the lady bug flies away. The monkey will pay you between 4 and 75 coins. Next up is a toucan, he does a little laugh and pays out between 5 and 100 coins when in action. Fourth up is a parrot, he waves and also has a laugh, paying out between 10 and 200 coins. Next is a black panther, she gives a little kitten growl, paying out between 15 and 500 coins. Then comes a baby crocodile worth between 20 and 1,000 coins and, finally, we have a Tiger cub as the top paying symbol worth between 50 and 2,500 coins for 3-5 appearances.

With this mobile casino approach and the excellent usability of their video slots, Mobilots should be making waves at USA friendly online casinos.


Features

Jr. Jungle video slot features two extra symbols, one being the Wild and the other being the free spins activator. Among the features list we count the exploding symbols and the prize multiplier as must mentions.

The autoplay feature is a very easy and user friendly option. Within 2 clicks of the mouse, or taps of your mobile’s screen, you can have the reels spinning between 5 and 100 times.

There is no stop reels feature as the reels don’t actually spin but just drop in. Thankfully, due to the vast number of payline wins that the game can accumulate within a single spin, there is the lighting bolt button that speeds proceedings up.

Wild

The Wild symbols is simply the word WILD in gold set in a jungle frame. It substitutes for all other symbols except the Free Spin trigger. No multiplier is added to wins activated by the Wild, though.

Free Spins Feature

Three or more of the huge, pink, jungle rose symbols activates the free spins feature. The Free Spins symbol is also a scatter, meaning appearances anywhere on the reels are counted, not necessarily on a payline or in order from left to right. Free spins are played automatically, so you may miss seeing it if you set the game to autoplay and leave.

Three Rose symbols will get you 5 free spins, four for 10 and five roses awards lucky casino players with 20 free spins.

Exploding Symbols

When you hit a winning combination on Jr. Jungle Video Slot, the activated symbols explode and new symbols drop into their places. This process could continue ad infinitum and sometimes feels like it’s going to.

This video slot feature works in conjunction with the multiplier on the top right. The first win is at the paytable rate. When the initial winning symbols explode and the next set drop in then the wins are calculated at 2x the paytable rate. This process continues up to 5x the winning rate and then remains there until no winning combination is hit. The multiplier then resets to 1x, awaiting your next winning combination.


Hitting a big win on Jr. Jungle Video Slot is an exciting experience, as you’re already likely to have built up the anticipation by going through a few smashing symbols events and worked your way up the multiplier table, then comes the banging of drums as the words BIG WIN hit the screen, and then your Dollars are counted up.

The combination of the cutesy characters, the relaxing music and the constant wins make Jr. Jungle Video Slot an enjoyable online gambling experience and one that we recommend trying out.

The Directory of Slots awards this jungle bunch 4 stars out of a maximum of 5 as we would have liked to have seen more features, but thoroughly enjoyed its uniqueness.

Legends of the Sea Video Slot

Game review: Legends of the Sea

Mobilots produces some outstandingly beautiful video slots and Legends of the Sea by Mobilots is no exception. Released at the end of 2016, this ocean themed videoslot looks like it was created in 2020.

Set with the open ocean as the background, the reels are bereft of any borders or tables and the slot symbols simply float in their places on the invisible 5x3 grid, with a little seaweed and coral around the bottom. The theme of the slot is not purely based on ocean life, though, as there is a nautical theme added in and some effects alluding to the lost city of Atlantis.

The music and sound effects of the online slot machine are somewhat Irish sounding, but that flute music does sit well with the theme and makes for a calming and peaceful gambling experience. Just sit back and watch the reels for a minute and you’ll fall in love with the serene calmness that comes through to you from the delicate animations and constant activity of the open ocean.

The video slot symbols, starting from the bottom of the paytable follow on from natural ocean through nautical, to Altantian. We start with some AngelFish, a cute Turtle that shows off with a little swim, and a pretty seahorse. All very Finding Nemo. Then onto a ship’s anchor and rope, a ship’s Steering Wheel, a Treasure Chest, and a Diver in an old-fashioned diving suit. The top two symbols are those of a redheaded Mermaid and a majestic looking Poseidon. The slot symbols are all beautiful to look at and animated like few other than Mobilots can achieve, and the online casinos using Mobilots’ games are certainly better of for it.

This is a 30 line videoslot and all buttons and options float over the open ocean. On the bottom left you have your options for choosing bet sizes, from penny slot to $150 per spin. Top left gives you the paytable, sound options, history, etc. To play you have a simple 3 button console on the right: click the lightning bolt for faster reels, the + sign for autoplay, and the spin sign to start a spin. All the buttons disappear when the video slot reels start to spin, leaving you with an unobstructed view of the open ocean.

Legends of the Sea online video slot plays in Dollars, negating the need for coin conversions on bets and winnings.


Features

Legends of the Sea features 3 separate symbols for the triggering of its feature games.

There’s a Wild, a Bonus and a Free Spins symbol. The latter 2 are scatters, meaning they don’t need to appear on a betline to be activated, anywhere on the reels will do.

The quick select autoplay function and the high speed spin options make for easy play of Mobilots’ Video Slot. The dynamic set up of the buttons on this video slot are clearly geared towards mobile casinos. 

Wild

A bespoke Wild symbol substitutes for all except the two scatter symbols that we’ll get into in the following sections. No multiplier is added due to the multitude of video slot feature games on offer.

Bonus Game

Three or more Bonus Game symbols, scattered anywhere on the reels, triggers the bonus game in which you’re presented with bubbles of coins and treasures to choose from, played over a different background with more colorful coral. Choose one or more, depending on how many bonus game symbols you’ve hit, and you’re awarded with instant cash prizes.

Free Spins Feature

The Free Spins symbol appearing 3 or more times signals the start of the Free Spins Feature. The symbols can be scattered anywhere on the reels and not necessarily on a payline. 3 appearances of the special Free Spins symbol will get you 5 free spins, 4 symbols triggers 10 free spins and the maximum of 5 symbols starts 20 free spins, all automatically played at the bet value that triggered the video slot feature game.


There are many similarly named video slots out there from various other casino game providers, Legends of the Seas by Novomatic and Legend of the Sea by Zeus Play, for example. But Legends of the Sea by Mobilots is one of a kind and definitely deserves a play. The Wilds come into play quite frequently and the 30 line set up mean they tend to set off a series of wins, while the myriad feature games are sure to keep your win balance on the up and up. It’s one of our favorite video slots right now and the Directory of Slots awards this smart swimmer a full 5 stars.

The Mariachi 5 Video Slot

Game review: The Mariachi 5

 A Mexican themed video slot is exciting enough, but a combination between the themes of a Mariachi band and the Day of the Dead is double exciting. This casino game makes all the right sights and sounds, well matching it’s mash up of themes. The 5 dead Mariachi band characters, the main symbols of the video slot, play their reels in a lively and colorful Mexican street, accompanied by other quintessential symbols such as a Pinata, a cactus, Maracas and a chilli pepper.

Realtime Gaming created a real fiesta of a casino game with this brand new online slot machine, and being a brand new video slot, it’s well optimized for mobile casinos and instant play, yet still available to those playing on download casinos.


Features

The Mariachi 5 is a feature filled online slot with a grouped Wild, a dead donkey pinata scatter, the Free Games Feature.

The speed of the reels is set by a simple 2 speed button, autoplay is a 2 click affair with an infinity option and, being an all-ways-pays game, you simply need to choose your coin size to set your bet amount. A very easy video slot to play.

Wild

The Wild symbol appears on reels 2 and 4 and counts for all symbols except scatter, as is mostly the case with RTG video slots.

Payout prizes are doubled if you get a wild symbol on a winning payline during normal play.

The Scatter

The Scatter symbol is a hilarious skeletal donkey pinata figure. 2 Scatters nets you nothing during normal play, but 3 or more activates the Free Games Feature. During the feature 2 scatters will get you 1 coin, but get 5 scatters and you’re in for 200 coins!

Free Games Feature

As mentioned, 3 or more Scatter pinata symbols trigger the Free Games Feature of this videoslot. In order to start the feature you get to choose from the 5 Mariachi band members. The choice between them is no game of chance as you’re plainly shown which of them offers what benefits. The red guy gives you 15 free spins at a 2x multiplier and the spectrum stretches to the purple amigo who offers 5 free spins at an 8x multiplier. We’d stick with the top 3 and not venture into the lower value free spins offered by the red and blue members. The Free Games Feature can be retriggered during the feature.


The dark, comedic graphics, the party tunes and the superbly easy game play make for a truly enjoyable online gambling experience.

It can be difficult to trigger the Free Games Feature as the scatter symbol is rather scarce during regular play, but the rewards when triggered are well worth the wait. Don’t give up until you’ve hit the feature game at least once. This video slot also plays and counts your winnings in $ values rather than coins, making it that much easier to keep track and to play the reels at speed.

We at the Directory Of Slots like The Mariachi 5 a lot and gave it a full 5 stars in our panel vote.

Mystic Wolf Video Slot

Game review: Mystic Wolf

Wolf themed online video slots are very popular at USA online casinos, and have always been a feature of casinos in general, all around the world but driven by production through American online casinos. The mystery and the tie in with the native American fascination with the powerful creatures is a strong driving force of the wolf theme in online casino games. Magical wins abound with the theme and Rival’s take, with Mystic Wolf video slot, is a sure winner. It may be a bit long in the tooth already, but was created with smartphones in full popularity and so works perfectly well on mobile casinos and other modern takes like online casinos on tablets or instant play on desktop computers and laptops. The native American slot machine theme runs through with symbols of the Moon (the highest paying symbol on the game), Feathers, Medallions, Diamonds, a Running Wolf and a Wolf howling at the Moon. The 5x3 online videoslot game grid can be filled to the brim with up to 50 paylines, giving you all the chances to line up enough bonus symbols to activate the casino game’s multitude of features. You can play between 1 and 50 lines by using the line selectors on either side of the slot reels, play between 1 and 10 coins, and bet between a penny and a quarter coin size, so anything from a penny slot to $125 per spin.

There is no visible grid to the online slot machine as the reels are suspended on an invisible grid fore of a lake, behind which lies a dark forest, below a bright, starry night. The casino slot reels spin with sparkly stars obscuring the symbols, the animations are decent considering the age of the casino game. The spin of the reels also comes with a howling of the wind, while the constant background music is a very pleasant native American campfire tune. We wish there was more to the win counter sounds, though, as wins are just counted up by some old fashioned online classic slot sounds.

All the symbols, including the lower paying suit of cards symbols, play a video to help discern the winning symbols from the rest, when activated. There isn’t much color to Mystic Wolf online slot, as there shouldn't be, and that suits it fine. It’s all about the silver, blue and darkness.


Features

This is not a progressive jackpot slot but rather has a random jackpot feature. The Running Wolf symbol is the Wild, there is a Mystic Wolf Super Round, and a Lunar Phase bonus round.

The line count and coin value are both configurable and auto play has a dedicated button. There are more buttons than are truly necessary, but everything is clear, making the video slot very easy to play. 

Random Jackpot

The Random Jackpot of Mystic Wolf Video Slot is as mysterious as the theme itself. No one knows when, how, or what value will hit. All we know is that it’s there, people have hit it before, it’s more frequently presented and pays out larger cash winnings during the Mystic Wolf Super Round

Wild

The animated running wolf symbol is the videoslot’s wild symbol, substituting for all but the scattered super round symbol.

What’s special about the Wild symbol in Mystic Wolf Video Slot is that it multiplies wins by 5, rather than the more commonly used 2x multiplier of other online video slots.

Mystic Wolf Super Round

The Mystic Wolf Super Round is triggered by the Feather icon. 3 or more of these icons triggers the Mystic Wolf Super Round where you will be awarded 7 free spins for 3 icons, 15 free spins for 4 icons and a spectacular 50 free spins for hitting all 5 Feather symbols.

What’s more is that the random jackpot pays higher values and occurs more frequently during the video slot feature round.

The Wild running Wolf symbol also doubles up to pay out 10x line wins when appearing on a winning pay line during the Mystic Wolf Super Round.

Lunar Phase Bonus Round

Mystic Wolf Video Slot’s feature game is the Lunar Phase Bonus Round. This feature can only be triggered during the Mystic Wolf Super Round. Hitting 3 of the scattered 8 sided dice symbols during the free spins round triggers the bonus round during which you’re challenged to match the lunar phases on the board with the dice throw. The reward for matched symbols are paid out coins.


With the harmonious, classic native American music playing in the background, replete with a pleasant drum beat, Mystic Wolf Video Slot can keep you entertained for hours. The reels spin to the sounds of the wind howling through, shaking up some wind chimes and then counting up your winnings. It’s a winning theme and a winning online video slot, everybody loves some mysterious wins.

The Directory Of Slots awards Mystic Wolf video slot a solid 4 stars, despite its age.
