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.

It’s that time of year again, the time when it feels right to play the Christmas slot games. Since I was once again confident in Playtech, I wondered what surprises were in store for me with the Santa Surprise slot game at bet365.
I began at £2 per spin. Immediately I hit the free spins and won nearly £30. Not long after I was surprised with another three snowy cottage symbols and ten more free spins. I racked up £25.30 on that round. Within 5 more spins, I got three Christmas tree bonus symbols for a win of £17.30. Was this my lucky day? I needed something big.
I eagerly took two more spins and I kid you not, I got the bonus again. I picked three presents for £16.80. Santa is the wild symbol on this slot game and he gave me some smaller winning combinations on the reels that kept me going between bonuses.
I took a moment to see how much I was up. £85 richer and things were slowing down. I should’ve known better. The second you count your money, it’s all over. I refused to lose more than £50 of my profits. Just a few more spins to see if I could hit something big.
I was just about to give up when I got the free spins bonus. I won £45 or so and the bonus retriggered and gave me 10 more free spins. I got five “A” symbols which really helped. My bonus spins came to a close with £148.80. That’s what I was waiting for.
Never look a gift horse in the mouth. I took my goodies from Santa and called it a night.

Fruit Shop is a new slot game from NetEnt. I gave it a try and I couldn’t find anything interesting about it. Why would this amazing software company release such a thing? I was on a mission of discovery.
I went straight to Mr. Green Casino, marched right up to the Fruit Shop slot game and set it on autoplay with 100 credits. I was determined to find something redeeming about it. It had to be more than a bunch of fruit, right? The free spins are triggered when fruit symbols hits the reels on an active pay line. This happens often but the interesting part is that winning combos award additional free spins. Within 10 minutes I was up to £184. So far so good.
The reels don’t seem to pay very well. The secret is in the free spins. There is potential to build up your balance here. Even if you only win £4 or £6 during the free spins, it’s still good. Watch that happen several times and you’re suddenly realize that you’re doing well. I was looking over my shoulder watching the latest lie detector results on Jeremy Kyle when I hit a big win for just over £60. I had at least 500 spins at £1.50 each. In all that time I went up then down but never below my original bankroll. The most consecutive free spins I managed to get was 10.
Fruit may not appeal to you but Fruit Shop is all about the free spins bonus. This slot game comes in just under the radar in terms of being exciting but it can do wonders for your bankroll.

It was a thanksgiving week, I received several free chips from several RTG casinos, $5 from inetbet, $50 from Jackpot Capital, $30 from High Noon. I was happy to receive these chips, but I had no winning from them.
I lost quickly each time, even though I had my bet size set at 50 cents per spin. I even made $25 deposit to High Noon with 200% bonus, but I had the same result, losing it quick. I am losing confident with RTG games now. It seems like all the casinos have tighten up their games or something.
I can't afford to lose some big $$$ anymore and I feel like I need a break from RTG games and in gambling because the games are so tight nowaday plus I've been busy with my schedule and I continue to be busy for another two weeks. With that being said, I will still enjoy whatever free chips I can get from other casinos, it's just that I don't want to make a deposit at this time yet. Does it mean I take a break from gambling? I don't know, I'm confused too.

I never thought there would come a day where I wouldn’t understand a slot game. That day has come at YouSpades.
I saw a slot game called Farm Slots and thought I’d give it a try. There were all these arrows and instructions all over the screen. I had no patience to read them so I started spinning at £1.50. The symbols are fruits and vegetables and the graphics are colorful and fun. The interesting thing is that you have a farm. The “Show Farm” button flashes occasionally. I click on it and there’s nothing but plowed squares without any seeds growing.
Along the bottom of the slot is each fruit and veggie symbol. You have the option to auto plant your seeds but how in the world do I collect them and what’s with this farm? Apparently you can pause this auto planting feature. All I could think was “huh”. All I knew at this point was that this slot does not pay and neither do the free spins. Each time you get three or more watering cans you receive free spins. It happens often and doesn’t pay much at all.
Sometimes these FreakyPots would come up and collect seeds….. I think. I finally decided to start reading. I read then went back to spinning but in minutes I had forgotten what I’d read. I know it’s got to be simple but I was skimming rather than reading thoroughly. Who has time for that?
I know many people with a Facebook farm that might just love this game. Maybe they can explain it to me.

I went back to give Playtech another chance. I’ve had horrendous luck with their slot games and I decided it was time to give it another try at Grand Duke Casino.
The last time I played, I was scared by Penguin Vacation. I had to face my fear head on. Right away I got 15 free games with a 10x multiplier. Maybe I was in for something good. Well, this hope didn’t last long. Every spin had no winning combinations except for one. How is that possible? 15 free spins and one winning combo? You’ve got to be kidding me. Let’s just say I was a little angry. I kept spinning to see if I could get the bonus again.
That’s the thing with this slot game and many others out there. The reels don’t pay much but the bonus is where the money is. I have won £400 during the free spins on this slot in the past so I know firsthand what it can do. Couldn’t it just do it again? Please?
As I was pathetically whining, I hit the bonus again. This time I got 30 free games with a 7x multiplier. Almost every spin was a win. My eyes got as big as saucers. That bonus gave me £175.98 to be exact.
I assumed that we were on a roll here so I upped my bet by 60p. Now spinning at £1.80, the reels began to pay out. I hit several stacked wilds for just over £30 and some winning combo for just over £14. I was spinning so fast I didn’t bother to see what these wins were. My bankroll was up and I wasn’t going to give it all back. I would play through no more than £50 to see if I could trigger another round of free spins. Not long after I made this decision I got 15 more free spins with a 7x multiplier. £26.46 was the total bonus win.
I dragged myself away and I think it’s safe to say that Playtech and I are friends again.

Once upon a time there was a froggy with $50 in an Enchanted Garden….
I do enjoy playing the Enchanted Garden slot game mainly because of the frequent bonus rounds and the additional free spins that are awarded during them. Thinking back, in all the times I’ve played it, the highest number of spins I received during one bonus round was around 30 or so. Considering you are given 7 free spins, that’s really good.
I was all ready to settle in for a session at one of my favorite RTG casinos, All Star Slots. There’s really not much to tell about this experience other than it was brief.
I think I played for about 10 minutes max. I was spinning at $0.80 then I switched it up to $1.20. Actually, I changed my bet several times within these 10 minutes. I hit one bonus round and won about 5 bucks. I had seriously hoped that I could turn things around. If I would’ve been using my head I would’ve played a different slot.
This garden was hardly enchanted. I think it might have even been overrun with bankroll robbers.

If you could go back to any era, which would it be? Some love the energy of the 50’s, 60’s or 70’s. I was an 80’s baby and I was too young to remember much about the decade. I love the movies and the music now that I am old enough to appreciate it. I was perusing CasinoRoom and I spotted it. It was The Super Eighties slot game!
A big “80’s” is the Wild symbol. 3 Scatter symbols pay 2x the bet and activate a round of 5 free spins. I was playing 80p per spin on this 40 line slot. The other symbols are so much fun with sports cars, hot pink heels, skate boards, a video game joystick, a walk-man and even a cell phone the size of brick. Remember those huge mobile phones that look like you’re holding a shoe box up to your ear?
I was playing with 100 credits. When I saw those stacked wilds come down for the first time I felt like getting up and doing the running man. Yes, the running man dance! They matched up with several symbols including the pink heels and the red sports car. All together the winning combos gave me £39.70.
I was holding my own for a while then I landed the free spins. During the spins I discovered that they can be re-triggered. I got three more Scatter symbols for 5 more free spins. Sometimes it seems that when free spins re-trigger, the bonus is never as good. I was excited yet a bit worried. Wilds are flashing, heels are dancing and joysticks were, well I don’t know but you know what I mean. I had ended the round with just over £50 extra. That was darn good if I do say so myself.
I played it all down to 4p. What can I say? Sometimes girls just want to have fun!

I tried again with Box24 casino yesterday by depositing $35 and I had my luck again. I didn't make a screen shot because I didn't have any big win on any game, but rather I had some medium wins on several games such as Lucky Number, Treasure of the Pharaohs, Grave Grabbers.
It's funny that I won again, most of my deposits usually would be lost after I couldn't cash out on my previous winning deposit (win, didn't want to cash out and lost). Anyone likes topgame games, I recommend to play at Box24, its slots were just loose compared to other topgame casinos, at least that I how I feel.
My balance is at $350 now, it is a mimimum withdrawal at box24 casino. I'm facing a decision whether I should continue to play or not. I will update it later. Thanks for reading.

I was mad at myself for not making a cash out with Box24 two days ago. I was eligible to cash out $600, but I lost it all back. At first, it dropped to $500, I tried to win it back, but no success, I kept losing little by little and I bet very big at the end when my balance was at $250 which not a very smart move by me.
I was pissed, I felt dumb, and it's not been my first time I was in this kind of situation neither. Nothing I can do now, but just to let it go and hopefully, I can win again the next time I play with Box24. I had several screen shots on couple games that won me big.

Golden Lotus seems to be a slot game that many avoid. I have told people that it’s one of my go-to Real Time Gaming (RTG) slots and they have looked at me like I have five heads. The reels are a little stingy but the bonus round has done wonders for my bankroll on more than one occasion.
I first headed to Mystic Dragon and had a nice round of free spins right away. It all went sour after that. I had about $20 left to play with so I took it to Golden Lotus. If I could only get a good bonus I would cash out for sure. I was making all sorts of deals with myself. If you get this then cash out but if you get that wait until you hit something bigger. I went back and forth as my balance was slipping away.
I didn’t have a solitary decent win. Not one. I find that RTG slots don’t like it when I bet $1 or more. They prefer $0.50 or $0.75. I was down to just over $7 and reduced my bet from $1 to $0.50. The moment I did that I hit three Golden Lotus symbols. I won 30 free spins with a 25x multiplier. I was $43.84 richer after that bonus round. That wasn’t nearly enough to make me cash out.
A few spins later I got three White Lotus symbols for 7 free spins with a 3x multiplier. $12 more bucks for me. I kept spinning a little while longer. Well would ya look at that, another White Lotus bonus for $20 more.
When all was said and done, I was up $60 all thanks to Lucky Red and Golden Lotus. Stop looking at me like I have five heads. I’m tellin ya it works.

My positive casino experience this week came from Grand Eagle casino. I played their daily blackjack tournament that takes place at 10:00 PM Eastern Time.
The cost for buy-in was just 10 loyalty point. The starting balance to begin with was $750, I was up to $2900 and I stopped playing there because I was already first place and there were not too many players played this tournament and other players have never came closed to my position. I was surprised, but I was glad to win 1st place of the tournament for $75.
The minimum withdrawal is $100 and I still hesitate whether I should play this $75 or not. I won on this tournament before and lost everything very quick when I tried to bring it up to $100 before because the odd to play slots with betonsoft software is not in my favor. Should I play? I have nothing to lose, right?

I received a bad news from Jackpot Capital casino today that my VIP status was dropped from Gold level to Silver level because I have not earned enough comp points within the last 90 days to maintain my Gold status.
Sorry Jackpot Capital, I wish to maintain my Gold VIP status, I made several deposits, but they've gone quickly each time. It would be a different story, if I was winning. I also received a letter from Jackpot Capital casino today. They gave me a code for $100 free chip and another code for 100% deposit bonus.
Thanks Jackpot Capital. If you are a VIP at Jackpot Capital, you are sure to be treated well with the free chips and bonuses. I can gurantee you that. I didn't win with the free chip, but I enjoyed it. It lasted me for couple hours. I was up to $200 playing White Rhino game. I had the kilimanjaro feature, two more scatters came out during this feature which won me over $100.
I was anticipated for the 5th scatter to come out, but it didn't. I played Aztec Treasure with gurantee feature after White Rhino and this game killed all my balance. I had no major winning and that's why I didn't have any screen shot this time.

With so many online casinos and so little time, it can be a tough decision when it comes to deciding where to play. When all else fails, I try something new. Casino UK looked like a good place to start. It was a new casino for me but Microgaming is great software so how could I go wrong?
I felt like playing a little Hitman. It had been a while since I played that slot game. The 18 free spins can pay very nicely on a good day. I was hopeful that this was the right day. Triggering the Contract bonus game was out of the question. In all honesty, I don’t think I ever have. The Insignia bonus is good for a few coins and it sure comes in handy when the reels don’t pay out. I get so annoyed when there’s only one matching symbol with an expanding wild and it pays almost nothing. I’m not sure what’s up with me lately but my luck has packed up and moved on.
I was doing horribly. There’s nothing worse than getting all psyched up to play and each spin either results in nothing or these minute wins that won’t even cover my bet. I can’t win them all but come on. Enough is enough! Then there was a silver lining. Three 18 Free Spins symbols appeared. I couldn’t even look. I peeked through my fingers as I covered my eyes. At the end I won 584 coins at 2p per line. Not bad but I wanted much more.
I began to have a strong desire to hire a hitman for this Hitman but again, a silver lining. I got three one hundred dollar bill symbols with an expanding wild. That helped a little. It was around £9 in my pocket. I had a strong feeling that this wasn’t going to go any further. I did the smart route and closed out of the casino. I’ll save my credits for another day and another slot.

This little piggy went to market. This little piggy stayed home. This little piggy ate roast beef. This little piggy had none and this little piggy went to Smart Live Casino.
Piggy Riches was my game of choice. My wager was set at £1.50. Now, I’ve played this slot game in the past at other online casinos and had zero luck. I’m actually not sure what drew me to it this time. I’ve been burned many times by these piggies. The Scatter symbol allows players to choose the number of free spins and multiplier. That can be tricky sometimes. You never know if you’re making the right choice and many times it’s trial and error. I usually aim somewhere in the middle. I had 80 credits allotted to see what I could do.
I wasn’t playing very long at all and in that time the reels were not paying. Luckily I landed the free spin bonus early on. I chose 22 free spins with a 3x multiplier. Each time a Scatter symbol appears during free spins an additional spin is awarded. Was I going to hit anything worthwhile? I was so leery of Piggy Riches so I watched with one eye closed. I got something like 5 or 6 extra spins. The piggies cut me a break.
This little piggy was £52.50 richer and ran all the way home.
