So much more from Microgaming this month! Three new slots in fact – So Much Sushi, So Much Candy and So Many Monsters. Go Bananas by Net Entertainment is also out, and we’re hoping the NextGen Judge Dredd will also finally be out in September.
It’s crunch time for casinos and slots sites to apply for a UK licence under the new legislation! Sites that are regulated in Alderney, Gibraltar, Isle of Man, Malta or Antigua and Barbuda will be given a continuation licence to enable them to continue operations with UK players after the legislation comes into force, but only if they have submitted an application for a UK licence by 16th September. The date for the legislation to go into force has been put back from 1st October to 1st November but since the deadline for applications to be made has already been and gone it is not likely that this will make much difference.
Earlier in the summer we asked some casinos what they intend to do about this, and the results varied from already having the UK licence application under way to having no clue what we were talking about. There could be some sudden exits from the UK market but equally, we expect to see a number of new sites on offer to UK players that have previously been regulated in a non whitelisted jurisdiction such as Netherlands Antilles.
It will certainly be easy to tell which sites have complied as from 1st October they will be required to display their licence number on every page. This came into effect back in August for sites that already had a UK licence, so if you want to see an example visit mfortune or Pocket Fruity.
Microgaming Slots Network
Running across the Microgaming network during September is a prize draw for a week-long holiday in Hawaii for 2 complete with a private helicopter trip and spending money. Get one entry for each £20 played on Jurassic Park.
Bgo has a couple of regular promotions. The monthly Beat the Boss promotion has reset for September. 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. 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. 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.
Guts have a regular promotion that is better than many of the special promotions you’ll find elsewhere. All you have to do is deposit and spend £20 on a Thursday, and the following day you will receive 10 or more free spins on the game of the week (updated every Monday). There is NO wagering requirement on winnings from the free spins.
Guts are participating in the Jurassic Park prize draw and are also offering their customers something extra – a 60% deposit bonus code.
Mr Green have a slots tournament on Twin Spin running on 27th and 28th September with £2000 in cash prizes for the top 5 on the leaderboard. All spins of at least 25p made on the PC/web version of Twin Spin will count, but unlike the majority of slots tournaments what gets you on the leaderboard is not the total spend, but your highest percentage win over 20 consecutive spins. Enjoy!
The Throne of Games free spins promotion for new depositing players is still running at Slots Magic. This consists of an initial 20 free spins on Wizard of Oz, plus an additional 20 free spins for each of the following 7 days on a different slot each day of the week (use code SPINS to get them). The wins are capped at £100 though so it is more about trying out the slots than potentially winning. There’s an alternative offer of 80 free spins on Raging Rhino.
Every Friday in August is Free Spins Friday. Deposit and spend £20 on any of the featured slots (all by Williams) and get an entry into that week’s draw – each draw has 35 prizes of 20-60 free spins on a different slot each week (Bruce Lee for 26th September)
Every Monday in September is Mobile Monday and each week there are 4 featured slots. Deposit and spend at least £20 on these on mobile and get 20% cashback (up to £100) on losses.
William Hill are offering 100% bonus back up to £20 on losses on the mobile casino from 22nd to 28th September as part of the Back 2 Business promotion which will run all month (opt-in required).
Free spins are also being given out and these tend to be for one day only so it’s worth checking the site frequently; on 24th September in the Games section, free spins are available when you make a minimum spend on Glitz . The Vegas section has a weekend leaderboard promotion starting on 26th, with the new exclusive slot Gorilla Go Wild versus table games.
Sky Vegas have the Gold Rush promotion running all month, with £100K to be given away each week. There’s a weekly draw for cash prizes (over 5000 prizes and the top prize is £10,000). Earn one draw ticket (and there’s no maximum) for each £20 played on slots or £100 on eligible table games. There’s also a daily draw for everyone who earned at least one ticket the previous day; this is to win Bonus Blasts which are an extra bonus of up to £250 that has to be claimed within 24 hours.
Also new at Sky is the Sky Casino section with Playtech slots and live table games.
Betfair have a special offer on the Williams Star Trek series of slots in the Vegas Slots tab. To unlock the later games you must win medals in the earlier games. Betfair are giving out 10 free spins when you unlock Explore New Worlds and 25 free spins when you unlock The Trouble With Tribbles.
Betfair also have the 250,000 Free Spin Giveaway, a 4 week long promotion on Net Entertainment slots in the Arcade section. Each week a different slot is featured and to qualify you must play at least 25 spins at a minimum £1 per spin. A prize draw takes place between all qualifying players, with 2000 prizes of £5, £10 or £25 worth of free spins (on a different Net Entertainment slot) to be won. Enter all 4 weeks and get a guaranteed extra prize of £5, £50 or £100 in free spins on Gonzo’s Quest. From 22nd – 28th September play Gonzo’s Quest to win free spins on Starburst and from 29th September to 5th October play Starburst to win free spins on TwinSpin. All of these free spins only carry a 1 x wagering requirement.
Bet 365 has the ongoing Slots Club promotion which only applies to the Playtech slots in the casino section (and requires an opt in). The promotional periods run for complete calendar months and the idea is to earn a target number of loyalty points on each of a target number days to win a cash prize. These range from £5 for earning at least 50 points on each of 10 days during the month right up to £1000 for earning at least 2500 points on each of 25 days during the month.
The Vegas section (where you’ll find the Net Entertainment slots) also has some promotions. Vegas Reloaded, which ran in August, is being run again during September. Collect 1 ticket for each £10 spent on the Vegas slots; the aim is to collect 10 tickets on one or more days during any promotional period (10th-16th, 17th-23rd and 24th-30th September) to qualify for a reload bonus on a deposit of £10 – £500. One day will give you a 10% reload, two days a 20% reload, up to a 50% reload for 5 or more days.
Coral have a regular promotion, Bet and Spin, that gives out a mystery casino bonus (from £2 to £100) when you place a bet on the featured Premier League match.
Coral also have the regular Supercharged Slots promotion in the casino section. A different slot features each week and when you buy in with £20 cash (any time from Monday to Thursday) you receive a £20 bonus; you must then play through deposit and bonus 20 times on the featured slot before you can withdraw any winnings.
