Casino blog - Since I started playing at online casinos and finding a way to take advantage of casino bonuses I decided to blog my progress, I hope you enjoy.

I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it! I’m about to lose control and I think I like it! I just wrote about Jackpot Party but I must do it again. I am the winner of an amazing random jackpot worth just over £2,900!
I had made several deposits and had some play time. In my experience the slots tend to run cold. On this day they were hot hot hot! I love the Bruce Lee slot game. It’s from the WMS Money Burst series. Bruce can be tight as a drum but when he’s in the mood, he really pays out.
The most exciting part about Jackpot Party is the Jackpot party Progressive. You can play any slot at any wager and it could just surprise you. As you complete a spin, a separate screen launches. You automatically win the minimum jackpot. There are a series of presents to choose from with cash prizes. The jackpots are tiered. If you choose a present that reveals a star, you move on to the next tier. If you choose one that says “collect” it’s game over for you.
When it happened to me I chose several cash prizes. These are added to the progressive jackpot amount you have already won. I chose the first star and got really excited. I chose a second and my jaw dropped. When I chose the third, I thought I was going to faint. One more star would’ve won me 20 grand. I was so close. No complaints here though. I have never won that much at once. I think I’m still in shock.
You never know when it could pop up. When you hear those words; Jackpot Party, get ready for a nail biter.

I’ve always wanted to visit a rainforest or take a tour through a jungle filled with wildlife. One of these days I will but for now, I just play the Slots Jungle RTG slot game.
The unique thing about RTG slots is the major and minor jackpots. I have been lucky enough to win the minor jackpot at an RTG casino once. The Slots Jungle slot not only has this but it’s exclusive to Slots Jungle Casino. I can see all the wild animals my heart desires from apes, elephants, bears lions, toucans and more.
The disappointing thing is that the currency is USD. Being in the UK my winnings would nearly be cut in half. I had a tiny bankroll to work with. I’m not sure what I was expecting to win but I took a gamble.
A few free spins would’ve been nice but I wasn’t so lucky. No stories of stacked toucan wilds or major wins.I was down to my last few cents and could only play a few lines. Then I saw that dreaded message, “You do not have sufficient funds to play this game. Would you like to visit the cashier now?” I hated to do it but I had to throw in the towel.
It’s still good to know that I can get my jungle fix anytime I’d like at Slots Jungle.

As silly as it may seem, I wanted to be Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz as a child. My grandmother did my hair like hers. The pigtails and the little tufts in the front had to be just perfect or I would tell her straight out “this does not look like Dorothy’s!” I can relive all my childhood memories all in one place, Jackpot Party. The Wizard of Oz slot is exclusive to this site in the online casino world. I have played the land based version in the past but never had any luck. When I found it online I was thrilled.
The minimum bet is 30p whereas it’s $1.50 in the states for the land based version. All The Wizard of Oz characters are there including Toto, the hot air balloon, Auntie Em’s house, the tornado, the Wicked Witch of the West, the ruby slippers and of course Glinda the Good Witch.
I began at 90p per spin. The big pay out is to get Jackpot symbols. The wild is The Wizard of Oz logo. There is also an Emerald City feature symbol. When three appear on the reels you choose one of the symbols. One leads to the Emerald City bonus, one to the Winged Monkey bonus and one awards an instant prize. What’s really exciting is seeing the reels continue to spin. That’s when Glinda floats down in her pink bubble and turns one or more of the reels wild.
With £50 to play with, I couldn’t hit a single bonus round. I lowered my wager down to 60p then to 30p but I couldn’t get anywhere. The Winged Monkey bonus is my favorite and I had my fingers crossed the whole time hoping to trigger it.
The slots are amazing at Jackpot Party but the wizard just wasn’t in a giving mood this time. Maybe Grandma can do my hair like Dorothy and I’ll give it another shot.

There are certain songs that just make you want to dance. For me, the same goes for certain slot games. It was Samba night at Mandarin Palace. Samba Spins makes me wanna shake it!
Bet On Soft’s Samba Spins is very similar to the Cryptologic slot game, Samba Nights. I feel like I’m at a street party in Brazil as the theme implies. I began with a £50 bankroll and set my bet to £1.50 per spin. I was getting very small pay outs and my balance was dwindling fast. You’ve got to love the stacked wild symbols of scantily clad dancers. They appear on reels two and four. Months of sit ups wouldn’t get me into her outfit or his for that matter.
I hit four aces for 90p and two queens for 45p. I didn’t change my bet and kept going. Thinking back, I probably should’ve lowered it. Common sense should have kicked in but I continued to take the gamble. I was on the verge of self-loathing when I suddenly had a nice spin. Maracas, jacks and the stacked wild gave me £10.20. Things were looking up. Not long after I hit three fireworks symbols and triggered the free spins. I was ready to Samba if I had a big win. I ended up with a win of just over £23. Unfortunately, I upped the ante and before I knew it I was down to £7.
I guess I’ll have to put away my dancing shoes and get to work on those sit ups instead. I so wanted to shake it!

Captain America has made the big screen and in honor of this I spent some time on the Captain America slot game at Intercasino. Marvel slots take me on a trip down memory lane back to my favorite comics as a child. Extreme excitement hardly does justice to what I felt when comics made it into world of online casinos.
Armed with £20, I sat down for what I hoped would be an amazing spinning session. There are three jackpots tied in to all the Marvel slots at Intercasino. The Hero Jackpot is the lowest. I usually see that go around £70 or so. I really believe in the randomness of these jackpots. On more than one occasion, I have just started a slot game and won the Hero Jackpot. My bets were not extreme and in fact were fairly low. The Super Hero Jacktpot is the second tier and the third and highest is the Marvel Hero Jackpot. I can only dream of being so lucky.
Captain America serves as the wild symbol and the remaining symbols are American flags, top secret folders, the Captain America shield and of course some bad guys. Now, let’s talk about the bonus game. It has a tendency to pay pretty well and it’s not impossible to get. Three Captain America symbols launch the bonus game. A separate screen loads and suddenly Captain America is in a war zone. The goal is to aim his shield at planes flying by. You have 5 shots and each will reveal a prize of not only cash but free spins.
I wasn’t having any luck on the reels and I was down to my last £3 or so. Just when I thought it was all over for me, I got the bonus! I chose carefully and had my fingers crossed for some nice cash and the free spins. I shot down 5 planes one by one. I didn’t land the free spins but my win was just over £30. I had boosted my balance and took that as my queue to bow out.
Captain America was always a favorite comic hero of mine. He saved the day and my bankroll. Just another day in the life of a Marvel comic.

Ancient Egyptian culture has always sparked an interest in me. I’ve been attracted to all things Egypt for as long as I can remember. When I was old enough to gamble, the first place I wanted to go was a casino that had an Egyptian theme. Boring Egyptian slot games have plagued me for years until I played NetEnt’s Egyptian Heroes. Mr. Green had it and I’m not the type to resist temptation.
A £50 bankroll was perfect for me to get acquainted with Egyptian Heroes. I was in a gambling mood so I began with £2 per spin. This is a little steep, I know, but I had to see what this slot could do. The unique feature is the Golden Bet Line. There’s a multiplier up to 5x which varies along with the position of the Golden Bet Line for each spin. Right away I hit 5 “J” symbols on the Golden Bet Line with the max 5x multiplier for £25! So far so good and I carried on without altering my wager.
I’m a bonus game addict. I can’t think of a slot lover who doesn’t crave a good bonus. Even with my win I thought “well that’s nice but I want the bonus”. I’m just not satisfied until I enter the bonus round. Stacked wilds are popping up and the game is dinging away but all I could think of was triggering the free spins. 3 Sphinx symbols award 10 free spins, 4 symbols award 15 and 5 symbols award 20. A “sticky” expanded wild takes the third reel during free spins.
At this point I had blown through my winnings and my balance was back down in the area of £55. How long could I wait for free spins? I kept going and rationalized it by thinking about how I planned to lose the £50 deposit anyway.
I knocked my bet down to £1.40 hoping it might bring the slot back to life. Then came the moment I had been waiting for! I was so excited to begin my 10 free spins. I had high hopes of hitting something worthy of bragging about but £10.29 didn’t cut it. With about £45 remaining, I walked away. There are so many hot games at Mr. Green so my cash will come in handy on my next visit.
These Egyptian Heroes rescued me from the dull and boring. I enjoyed every penny spent on indulging in this temptation.

Lightening may not strike twice but thunder is another story. One of my go-to online casinos is Ladbrokes. I like to visit the Great Hall of Spins in Thunderstruck II. Armed with just £20 it was a race against the storm.
Thunderstruck II rates high on my list of Microgaming slot games. In my experience, the reels tend to pay out pretty well and the bonuses are even better. I have had my share of bad luck with this slot but my overall player experience has been good. With 243 ways to win, you can’t go wrong. To be honest there are some wins that I can’t even identify but that’s part of the fun. I just stare at the screen in awe. I gave up trying to figure out the pay lines though long ago.
Sometimes a small bankroll can be my worst enemy. I tend to set my bet way too low to play longer. This time I wagered 0.90 per spin and prayed for a nice win. I had some £5 - £10 wins but my bankroll was down to about £5 pretty quickly when all of a sudden the thunder began to roll. At one point I hit 5 Thor symbols for £61.50. The next spin triggered the Wild Storm which turned the first two reels wild but the remaining reels were no good.
With my balance now up to £125 I started to think about cashing out but not yet. C’mon, I’m a gambler. You know how it is! I had to see what more I could do but I promised myself that I wouldn’t let my balance drop below £100. That was my limit. Now down to £108 I was beginning to hear the faint sound of sad violins. Hindsight is 20/20. I started to think I should’ve taken the £125 and ran. I began a series of free spins with high hopes and let me tell you, they were beyond stingy.
The storm was passing in my neck of the woods but I made it through with £83 in profits.

If I am going to play at any Rival powered online casino it’s going to be Box24. The customer service is good and they have an overall better reputation than many other rivals. I was just about to deposit until I saw a Free Play offer in the cashier. I wanted to play the new slot game Summer Ease so I redeemed the offer and went on my way.
The theme of this slot game is all things summer. Grills, sand castles, boats, camping bring that summer time feel to the reels. The graphics are cute and very relaxing like lying in a hammock on a summer afternoon. I can’t help but think of my days as a little brat with a head full of curls swinging toward the clouds in my back yard. For me, it ends there. I’ll play just about any slot game in existence but this has got to be one of the more boring slots. It lacks any bells and whistles. The free spins occur when 3 or more bicycles land on the reels. If you blink you’ll miss it. If you turn for a moment, you barely realize you’re in the midst of free spins. There is a bonus game which involves a speed boat dodging buoys. I didn’t have the pleasure of hitting the bonus. It would’ve come in handy since I desperately needed some excitement.
I like the 3 reel slot games that Rival has to offer. I normally play those when I’m in the mood. There are no expectations as you have may have with video slots. I’ll play through my bonus on Surf Paradise.
The dog days of summer have lulled me to sleep but lucky for me surf’s up.
