Everyone loves a summer special. If you still haven’t tried your luck playing an online casino on a mobile device, here are five fantastic reasons why you should give gaming-on-the-go a spin.
Online casino software developer Playtech has just released five new games specifically for mobile devices. The mobile casino market is booming at the moment, with more and more players opting to enjoy a flutter on their phones and tablets.
Mobile casinos enable instant play – where and when you want it. Slots are the perfect application. Just be careful you don’t walk into a lamppost seconds after you celebrate a big win. Here are our quick reviews of the cream of the new slots crop.
#1. Battle of the Gods
Deities eh? Can’t live with ‘em – can’t live without ‘em. Sadly, Gods just can’t be trusted to behave themselves. As we prostrate ourselves before them here on earth, in heaven it’s all kicking off.
Fortunately bad blood between Zeus, Poseidon, and assorted other titans makes for a clash that comes with cash.
The five-reel slot has 25 paylines and two bonus feature modes: Gods and Titans. In ‘Gods’ mode, the winning spins don’t stop until Chronus appears – triggering Titans mode – which is another eight spins. To start the free games, you need three or more scatter symbols at the same time.
It’s dark, dramatic and suitably deific. If you like Game of Thrones or Clash of the Titans, give it a spin.
Ole! Remember that holiday in Spain? The drunken flamenco dancing, the sangria overdose, the dodgy tapas, and the trip to the pharmacy? Now you can relive that trip to the Costa del Sol with a trip to the Costa del Slots. Si Senor… the world now has a Spanish-styled mobile game.
Esmeralda is a five-reel castanet-carrying progressive slot with 25 paylines and a lot of Latin flavour. If Antonio Banderas was a one-armed bandit this is what is would look like. The game includes the chance to double any win with the turn of a card, as well as a progressive jackpot.
Free games are triggered with eight or more roses on screen. The game is bright and fun, with foot-tapping and flamenco guitar creating a suitably Spanish ambience. We say ‘si’ to the fiery redhead and muy bueno chica Esmeralda.
#3. Silver Bullet
Keep it simple. The Silver Bullet mobile slot is an old school nine payline game that takes you straight back to the Las Vegas strip circa 1977. It’s bread and butter stuff: wins multiply according to the level of wager and there are no fancy bonus rounds.
The wild west themed game does have a couple of 21st century upgrades. There is a wild symbol (Sheriff’s badge) that substitutes for any symbol. Also adding to the action is a scatter symbol (a six-shooter) that multiplies the win according to the number of scatter symbols in play.
If you like a frill-free game that can still thrill, Silver Bullet has got just the right amount of yee haw to have you going wild whether you are in the west, north, south, or east. Take a shot.
#4. Vacation Station Deluxe
Another game simple enough to play on the move is Vacation Station Deluxe. The game is an upgrade of Vacation Station and is basically themed on all things transportation. From suitcases and motorbikes to hot air balloons, cars, and yachts. If it moves, it’s on one of this game’s eight paylines.
Unlike all the other games reviewed today, the game is played in portrait mode and is more reminiscent of a scratchcard than an online slot. The game plays in a three by three grid. The paylines basically work like a noughts and crosses game.
All the winlines are three identical symbols. The win is multiplied according to the wager. If the scatter symbol (a suitcase) appears, your win gets multiplied up to nine times. The airport announcement ambience is a stroke of genius.
#5. Amazon Wild
Finally, we hit the jungle with Amazon Wild – a slot that lives up to its name with throbbing drums and 100 paylines. It’s colourful, loud, and even includes a bonus round where you use a map to unearth hidden treasures from deep in the jungle.
With so many paylines, it seems as if every spin gets a win. There are toucans, parakeets, and ancient Mayan symbols. If you’re looking for a little rewarding rainforest adventure, Amazon Wild delivers. Enjoy.
