June 29 – There’s great news for slots fans. Microgaming is releasing four new slots games this summer. Fans can expect to see the four new games as soon as July 1st.
The first game, Fortune Finder is a five reel, 30-payline video slot. It has a mining theme and has one innovation sure to please many players. Players can choose their own wild symbol, and if they decide they’ve chosen wrong, they can choose a different one. Of course, there is a free spins feature, and there is a gamble game that can as much as quadruple the payout. The maximum bet is 150 coins, and the maximum win for the base game is 30,000 coins.
The next game, Summer Holiday, is arriving just in time to be a real treat for those of us who can’t afford summer in the Hamptons or on the Vineyard. Summer Holidays is a mega slots game. It has four rows of symbols on its five reels, and it has one hundred different paylines. Symbols include refreshing summer fruit and snacks, bicycling by the lake, soft drinks, pedalboats and more. Summer Holidays has a unique wild symbol that stacks up on a reel, replacing any other symbol that was there.
If you’re into cycling, Pedal Power has a bicycle theme. Players can choose the number of spins and multiplier when they get free spins. That is, they can choose fewer spins and a higher multiplier or more spins and a lower multiplier. Players should choose carefully, because there are a total of 400,000 coins to be won in a free spins rounds!
Sterling Silver may be a little lacking in color, but Microgaming’s new slot can give you some bling with 25 paylines, scatter symbols, wild multiplier symbols, free spins, gamble games and bonus features!

June 25 – Playtech’s Beach Life progressive slot game was hit for $1,552,778. This is the fifth time in the last year that Beach Life’s jackpot has been hit. Although it is one of the more popular online progressive slot jackpots, Beach Life has recently also received some negative publicity.
Three of the progressive jackpots that have been won, including the one that has just been hit, have been hit at amounts of over a million dollars. Two of the progressive jackpot winners at two different online casinos have had problems receiving their payouts.
Sylvia, who won a jackpot of over four million dollars, the largest jackpot in the past year, had trouble receiving her payouts from Joyland Casino. The casino placed a lot of pressure on her and she eventually agreed to settle for half the amount she was meant to win.
Another winner, this time from African Palace Casino, had agreed to take her winnings in installments. Marie Van Wyk from South Africa received two installments, after which African Palace Casino simply stopped paying. Marie is still in the process of trying to get her winnings from the online casino, and has already taken her grievance to the press.
While the name of the most recent Beach Life winner has not yet been released, and the name of the online casino at which the jackpot was hit is a mystery, Playtech can only hope that this latest progressive slot hit will be fully paid out in a timely manner, and not bring their flagship game any more negative publicity.

June 19 – Twenty five years after Gray Jolliffe and Peter Quayle introduced the world to their iconic comic character, Wicked Willie, the star is returning in the big way – by appearing on his own slot game.
“We’ve had Wicked Willie merchandising before, but this is the first time he will feature in his own game,” said the creator, Jolliffee, who also illustrated the character. “The cartoons were hugely popular all over the world and it’s fantastic that CasinoRip.com is helping to bring him back. He’s as cheeky as ever and I’m looking forward to having back in my life.”
CasinoRip.com, the popular online skill games site, announced that players are now able to enjoy the new multi line game that features at least ten representations of Wicked Willie in all his glory.
The 80′s character will show amazing flexibility as his image is changed to match the seasons throughout the year. Wicked Willie will thus be able to celebrate Christmas, Valentine’s Day and other major holidays on the calendar with players. He’ll also be able to honor major sporting events by rooting for his favorite player at Wimbledon or running as a jockey at the Royal Ascot horserace.
CasinoRip.com is pleased that it is able to play a role in bringing Wicked Willie to the new generation of players who may not have had the good fortune to enjoy the character.
The Chief Executive Officer of CasinoRip.com, Kevin Dale said: “We are proud to be resurrecting a legend like Wicked Willie. Many of us were tickled pink by the books a couple of decades ago and we thought Willie would be perfect star for a new game. We think he’ll once again catch the imagination and raise a smile among a new audience.”

June 20 – Players are set to enjoy a new lease of life to Paddy Power Casino’s popular Tour de France themed rake race, after the online casino site announced an extension of the promotion.
While players stood in line to win a total prize pool of 75,000 Euro in the May competition, the site said that the June leg will see 100,000 Euro up for grabs.
Players can register for the competition that begins on June 18th and runs until the end of this month.
During the May 10 day race, players were rewarded with thousands of Euros in prize money, plus a VIP to Monte Carlo was also given away.
The winner of the overall May leg, GD of Leatherhead described the feeling of winning Paddy Power’s great prize. “I was thrilled to have won the competition!” he said. “After coming in the money positions last time, I really went for it on Download this time and was rewarded with the top prize.”
The previous competition referred to by GD was the April 50,000 Euro race to win.
Players hoping to get their hands of some of the 100,000 Euro this time around should know that they are being rewarded, firstly, for the total number of games they play and, secondly, for the total amount wagered.
This type of dual track format has proven especially popular for players as it allows penny pinchers to try the route where they are rewarded for many low stake games, and high rollers who prefer to wager big and attempt the second track.
Prizes that include all expenses paid trips to luxury destinations are always popular among players. May’s Monte Carlo winner, SO’B, noted that he was still over the moon about winning. He need needs to decide whether he is taking the trip for two to Monte Carlo, or whether he will take the 5,000 Euro cash prize alternative instead.

June 12 – It was dinosaur sized luck all round for Christopher T. who spent a very rewarding evening playing at Intertops RED online casino.
The player decided to try out the newly launched site that started out on the Real Time Gaming platform only a fortnight ago.
Intertops decided to create the new RED site in order to allow US players to enjoy all that this brand has to offer. The RED online casino was to complement Intertops GREEN that worked off the Microgaming platform and which could not, unfortunately, accept US players.
Christopher T. started off his evening playing at the 5 reel, 25 pay line T-Rex slot game with $300. A hunch told him to keep playing at the one machine, which he did steadily for several hours. By the middle of the evening, he had already accumulated an incredible $70,000 by simply playing the regular jackpots and not even attempting progressive jackpot playing.
By the time his credit score reached five figures, the player felt that he needed to walk away from the casino a while to catch his breath. “I decided to take a break,” he said. “But after a while I wanted to continue my winning streak and I finally ended up wit $200,090!”
Christopher was all smiles and jokes regarding this fantastic win at Intertops RED. “Maybe I should use some of my winnings to go to Washington and check out the dinosaurs at the Smithsonian!” he said.
Intertops RED offers players an all round gaming experience, having over 300 games to choose from in the remarkable Real Time Gaming games portfolio.
Players can try their luck at a wide range of slot games, ranging from classic three reel slot games to multi line video slot titles. In addition, there are regular casino games such as three card rummy, blackjack and roulette with huge prizes just waiting to be won.

On Booster, you need to bet $5 and hit three Booster symbols on the winning line. And on Heavy Metal you just have to make the maximum $2 bet when you hit.”

June 5 – As the recession becomes tighter and players have generally less cash to spend at their favorite online casinos, many are on the lookout for free slots entertainment. It is definitely always exciting to find free slot tournaments at some of the top sites out there, sometimes on a weekly basis, sometimes monthly.
However, it seems the good folks at Golden Casino haven’t heard of the saying “nothing good in life comes free”.
Golden Casino launched a crazy promotion this month, where every single slot tournament held at the site during the month of June is absolutely for free. No tournament will come with a buy in fee and players will be able to stand in line to win super prizes without the need to risk a single cent of their own money.
But while the cynical among us may be forgiven for thinking that this is another marketing ploy by a clever online casino and that they have scaled their tournaments down to one or two during the month of June, Golden Casino has proven yet again why it is considered such an excellent, reputable site.
Golden Casino is running the same number of slots tournaments as it did last month, without cutting back at all.
One online player, a regular at Golden Casino said about the new promotion: “I have been playing at online casinos for years, and I have never seen a casino that offers free tournaments for the entire month. It looks like I am going to be playing a lot of slots in June.”
Golden Palace, created from the classic Golden Palace Casino that was forced to leave the US market after the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act was passed, continues to provide players with non stop entertainment and great promotions such as these.
The site is currently offering a superb 100% welcome bonus of up to $555 to all new players.
Golden Casino features high-quality Vegas Technology slots.
