Cricket Star by Microgaming is the first of February’s new releases (although strictly speaking it is not really a new release but a reskinned version of Football Star). Play ‘n’ Go’s Pimped slot is expected at the end of the month and so is Steam Tower by Net Entertainment. IGT have just released the follow up to Double Diamond – Triple Diamond.
Full UK licences have started to be issued to sites that previously had continuation licences and we are also starting to see UK licences issued to organisations whose previous licence jurisdiction was not on the UK white list, bringing new slots sites to the UK. Every UK licensed site now has to display a link to its licensing information at the Gambling Commission so status is easy to verify. We recommend only playing at UK regulated sites, for safety and security.
The ICE Totally Gaming show took place at the beginning of the month, taking up a vast area of the huge ExCel venue. Some of the things to expect in the world of slots later this year:
- Microgaming’s Bridesmaids tie-in slot.
- Microgaming slots for wearables – the original Thunderstruck is already out for the Samsung Gear smart watch and there’s more in the pipeline
- Net Entertainment’s Guns ‘n’ Roses themed slot
- IGT’s Sherlock Holmes slot, already a hit on land, to come out online
- IGT’s Apollo Rising
- IGT’s Megajackpots version of Siberian Storm – STOP PRESS!!! OUT NOW!!!
- Tower Quest by Play ‘N’ Go
- Dracula’s Family by Playson (this slot has bonus round progression and is clearly influenced by a certain very famous Microgaming title)
- New provider Inspired to launch exclusively at Coral Casino with a suite of 4 games including Goddess of the Amazon.
- NYX’s Psycho film tie-in slot
- Scientific Games (which includes Bally, Barcrest and WMS) to debut 2 Monopoly themed online slots after securing the licence which was previously held by IGT, Also coming is Zeus 1000 (a Colossal Reels variation on the Zeus theme), and a progressive jackpot version of the UK’s best loved slot Rainbow Riches.
Bgo has a couple of regular promotions. The Beat the Boss promotion is reset at the start of each month. This consists of a series of challenges that must be completed to win prizes; each section of bgo has its own set so you could just do the slots ones or try some of the other sections as well. The prizes include free spins, bonuses and cashbacks. There’s also a daily free game, a spin of the Boss’s Wheel, where you can win free spins on the exclusive slot Jungle Trouble. Lastly there is a 10% cashback offer up to £50 when you make a deposit of at least £10 between 5pm and 10pm on a Wednesday. Bgo usually give out free spins for making a deposit whenever they launch a new slot, so it’s worth checking the site regularly for that.
The regular promotions at GUTS are extremely good and rival special promotions from other casinos. Double Deal Monday is a 2 part promotion – deposit using the code to get a 75% bonus up to £40, and if the deposit is at least £20 and you play at least £20 on the Monday, you’ll receive 15 free spins on the Game of the Week on Tuesday. Thursday Triple is a free spins promotion – deposit on Thursday to get free spins on Friday, Saturday and Sunday on a different Game of the Week. Deposit and play £20 or more to get 10 free spins on each of the three days – or deposit and play £50 or more to get 20 free spins on each of the three days.
The really great thing about these promotions is that any winnings from the free spins are yours to keep, free of any wagering requirements.
GUTS are also running a Microgaming network slots promotion. Each £20 played on Cricket Star until 2nd March earns one entry into the prize draw, with a trip to Australia for 2 to be won.
Slots tourneys run most weekends at Mr Green. Mr Green slots tournaments differ from the ones you’ll find elsewhere in several ways, the most important being that there is NO need to spend massive sums in order to be competitive as the leaderboard placing is based on the highest percentage win over 20 consecutive wins, not total winnings or total spend. The minimum value spin to qualify is just 25p, and the top 5 win real cash prizes of £100 to £1000.
Nothing is going on the weekend of 28th February, but this could be because they are working on something big (we believe it is to do with the welcome offers).
188bet again have the Get More Free Bets promotion running for the whole of the month.
