Been & Gone…

Last chance for USA at PPM!

 
In a shock announcement, PPM gave just 3-week’s notice that from October 1st they will no longer accept new USA players!  

However, USA players who have accounts will be able to play on indefinitely.

So if you live in the USA and want to try this unique brand – act now!

 

History & Info: From early 2016 there was “New player on the field”.   In trying to come up with a short name for it, the best I could manage was PP Multi or PPM, the long version being Pragmatic Play Multi-Software.

 

The games were not new, but the gaming platform was.   The base was the old Top Game software, but with new owners they went multi-software, gradually adding more over the following 18 months: 

They now have games from Pragmatic Play, Microgaming, Rival, BetSoft, Octopus, VIG, Habanaro and Vivo. (Certain countries are blocked from some software brands – but can play all the others).

 

They accept players from nearly all countries in the world, including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, France, Italy, Germany, etc… (Note: No UK players allowed at any PPM casino)

 

To see my full list of reputable PPM casinos, please see this page: USA: PPM Casinos

 

Reminder for USA players; shut off = Sep-30th: Use them or Lose them!

Not any more…

New software option for USA players: PP Multi

 

From the beginning of 2016 there has been a “New player on the field”.   In trying to come up with a short name for it, the best I could manage was PP Multi, the long version being Pragmatic Play Multi-Software.

 

The games are not actually new, but the gaming platform is.   The base is the old Top Game software, which no longer exists under that name, but the big change is that they can now add games from other software providers to produce casinos with a bigger range of games than ever before.   They have already added some games from Rival Gaming, BetSoft Gaming and Parlay Entertainment, with more expected to be added soon.

 

In the past, Top Game casinos in general had a pretty bad reputation, with a number of rogue operators – and this may well still be the case under this new set-up.   But two operators have been honest and trustworthy over the last several years in my opinion, they are the Sloto’Cash Group and the Winward Group.   So these are the only groups whose “PP Multi” casinos I recommend.   They both run multiple casinos and players ARE allowed to sign-up to more than one in each group.   Details can be found Here.

VERY old news…!

Shock Shake-up of Rival Gaming Casinos

 

I have been a big fan of Rival Gaming software since it first appeared way back in 2006, so as well as playing at many of their casinos myself, I also recommended all the better ones to visitors to this website.

 

One of those casinos was Tropica Casino. After adding them to my listings in 2009 they went on over the next 6 years to open a sister casino (Cash O’Lot) and to slowly aquire a further 9 Rival casinos which the previous owners had decided to let go for various reasons.   The group became one of the most popular listed on this site, with 100’s of satisfied players from all around the world.

 

In May 2016 the existing Tropica owners made the shock announcement that they were going to sell the entire group to new onwers.   At first I was not concerned as I was assured it would be “business as usual”, but that turned out to be the furthest from the truth that you could possibly get…

I discovered in August that the group had been sold to one of the most notorious rogue groups on the net!

 

But worse was to come – almost immediately they shut down the marketing part of the business, cutting off all the webmasters who had been helping them build their successful brands.   And that was followed by the news that they were going to shut down all the casinos as well!   Apparently the new owners only bought the group for the huge data-base of player information, so they could try to lure them to one of their other rogue casinos.

 

I’m still trying to establish if the 11 Tropica Group casinos have actually closed, or if they are still taking deposits from unsusspecting players – so if you have joined any of the casinos list below, I urge you NOT to deposit another single cent:

Tropica Casino, Cash O’Lot, Gibson Casino, Ricardo’s, Sahara Sands, Slot Powers, Vanguards, Bet Cave, Casino Lust, Go Fish and Vegas Amped.

 

The loss of this group means there are now <10 reputable Rival Only casinos on the internet, with a few more offering Rival games as part of a multi-software set up.   For a list of all these, see my Rivals Page.

Unique to

Freaky Vegas

Freaking good moves from new casino!

 

Having opened in the middle of last year and being added to my site in November, Freaky Vegas have just announced some big improvements to help them in their mission to become one of the best online casinos in the business!

 

Max Bet Sheild: I REALLY like this!   When playing with a bonus, a pop-up will automatically warn you if you’re about to exceed the €5 maximum bet rule, preventing you from accidentally braking the bonus rules. When NOT playing with a bonus you can set the limit to any level you like, again preventing any accidental bets higher than you intended. We’ve all done it!

 

Improved Welcome Offer: Previously they offered 100% up to €100 + 100 Free Spins on Starburst.

The NEW offer is up to €800 in bonuses on your first 4 deposits + 500 Free Spins on the new Divine Fortune slot game from Net Entertainment!   With their minimum deposit of just €20, you could get 500 spins worth €100 for just €80 in deposits…

 

New Software: They have just added Yggdrasil Games: strange name – great slots!

   

What are you waiting for, give Freaky Vegas a go today!

Note: Currently they are unable to accept players from the UK, USA, Australia, France, Spain, and many “minor” countries – but Canada, New Zealand and the rest of Europe are good to go!

It’s that time of year AGAIN – Who’s been Nice and who’s been Naughty?

 

The most respected player advocate on this marvellous planet revealed the eagerly awaited winners of his highly coveted awards on the 26th of January 2016. These are the highlights:-

 

Best Online Casino 2015: Video Slots – A Multi-Platform casino with a REDICULOUS number of games, Generous bonuses, Cash Back, Races, Tourneys, Fast Cash-outs… the LOT!  (No USA) 

 

Best Casino Group 2015: 32Red – No big surprise - they are STILL top class! (No USA) 

 

Best Customer Service 2015: BETAT Casino – A casino is nothing without its customers, and customers like to be treated like they’re really valued. That’s exactly what they get at BETAT! (No USA) 

 

Best New Casino 2015: Slots Million – Another Multi-Platform casino with a CRAZY number of games! As with Videoslots, everything about them is just great! (No USA or UK)

You can be sure that should you use any of the above casinos, you are going to get the very highest standard of overall treatment and customer service on the net! This is not to say that others aren’t as good – there are loads of similarly brilliant operators listed here at KK – but only 1 can win each award.

 

Of course, there were also low-lights; the biggest thieves, rogues and downright stupid casinos and players on the net in 2015, but I’m not going to mention all of those; you know the old saying “Curiosity lead the newbie gambler to get ripped off”… J  (But if you really want to see the full listing, please click here)

A Superior bonus offer to Rival most others… J

 

Superior Casino was one of the earliest Rival casinos to open, way back in 2007, when I added them to my site.   They have always been popular with visitors to this website and have an excellent reputation.   In my honest opinion they ARE Superior, not just in name!

 

They have always had a very generous Welcome Bonus, and have now given me an EVEN BETTER exclusive bonus to offer players who visit their website via link or banner on my site:

Deposit as little as €/$/£ 25, right up to €/$/£1,000 to get a 225% bonus up to €/$/£ 2,250 max.

This bonus has a lovely low WR of only (D+B)x15 and is fully CASHABLE with NO maximum win amount!

You will struggle to find a bonus as “player friendly” as this anywhere on the net.

All new players will also get a $25 / €20 / £14 free chip to try before you buy!

 

Superior cannot accept players from the USA, UK, Canada & Holland – but most other countries are OK, including the rest of Europe, Australia, New Zealand & South Africa

Update March-25th: Superior now CAN take USA players again!

Happy New Year! Now – back to work!

 

Some people might not realise, when they see some out-of-date pages on this website, that I am working on it pretty much 7 days a week all year round.  Often I am just checking things and no updates are actually needed, or I am making little corrections here and there which mostly go unnoticed.

Other times I am doing more major things, like adding new casinos or dumping old ones which no-one wants to play or who have unfriendly terms or who change things in a very negative way.

December was VERY busy for me: 6 duffers dumped and 4 new ones added, with more to come.

Who were the top 6 casinos of 2014?

 

Of the 1000’s of casinos online these days, I only list around 200 of the very best ones on this site. But which ones are the very best?  Well the proof of the pudding is in the eating they say, so the only way I can guage which are best, is by which casinos the most people chose to play at.

 

For the first time ever since launching this website 9 years ago, I have anaylised all the facts & figures from last year and discovered which 6 casinos were the most popular with visitors to my websites; the top three who accept players from the USA, and the top three who don’t.

100 Free Spins on Dead or Alive!

WARNING!

Spin Empire have ROGUE bonus T&Cs!

Completely removed from this site Dec-1 2015.

 

Dead or Alive is probably the highest variance slot from Net Entertainment – enormously popular with players who like to chase those bet x 1,000’s wins without playing a Progressive Slot.

I have just found a new casino who are giving all new players 100 Free Spins on this unique game!

All you have to do is make a minimum deposit of €/$/£25 at Spin Empire and the 100 spins are yours. Wagering on winnings is x30, and max win from the spins is €/$/£200.

Unfortunately they are not yet able to accept UK players, but this should be changing by the end of July.

 

Spin Empire is just one of FOUR new NetEnt based casinos I have just added to this site (July-8th); the other three ARE all UK licensed and have some “interesting” welcome offers:

 

Diamond 7 Opened just last month and have a Welcome Bonus of 100% up to INFINITY!

Hello Casino Offer a 100% match bonus, with VERY generous WR of Bonus Only x25, Cashable!

21 Prive Is a sister casino to the very popular G’Day, and just like them, they also offer 100% up to INFINITY!

 

Diamond 7, along with 21 Prive and G’Day are among only a handful of casinos who offer Aristocrat slots to play for real online. In all they have 10 softwares, also including ThunderKick, NYX & Next Gen.

 

Much more important information about these casinos and the EIGHTEEN others I have added in 2015 (including all the key bonus details) can as usual, be found on my New Casinos Page.

New UK Licensing Law – what does it mean for you?

 

Most existing UK players will already know that a new law comes into effect from November-1st, which means online casinos SHOULD be licenced by the UK Gambilng Commission if they want to operate their services within our country.   Just like the situation in the USA which started in 2006, the politicians try to tell people it is for their own protection and in their best interests, which it is to a certain extent.  But of course, we all know the real driving reason behind it is so they can tax us on our play, just like everything else we spend our hard-earned cash on.

Note: As a player you will not be taxed – the tax will be levied only on the casinos themselves as a percentage of their nett profits. Players should not notice anything different with their casino experience.

 

As with the USA, the first to react have been those casinos based in the UK or the EU who are within the reach of UK juristriction – casinos from other parts of the world are likely to carry on regardless.

 

So what does this actually mean for the players? Well so far as I can tell up to this point, the main impact is on downloadable single-software Microgaming casinos – once the absolute cream of the gambling world.   All but about 20% of them are pulling out of the UK and directing their players to one of the few brands which will be licenced. You can see the FULL impact of this on my Downloadable MG Page.

 

The vast majority of NetEnt based, multiple-software casinos are getting licenced and so will stay in the UK market, though some are blocking certain minor brands of software from UK play.

 

For most other main software brands, such as Rival, Playtech and RTG, only the handful based in the EU are changing, the rest will carry on - business as usual.

Lots of new NetEnt casinos join KasinoKing:

 

I’ve just started trawling through the dozens of NetEnt based casinos which I was not listing on this website, to find any more of a suitable standard to present to you, dear reader. There are still loads for me to look at, but this week (late August) I have added the first 6 new ones below.

Here are the very brief details about them:

 

Slotty Vegas Sub: 100% up to 100 + 25 Free Spins on Aliens or Starburst.

A new “little sister” to the incredibly popular BetAt Casino – known for great CS and FAST cash-outs.

 

Super Lenny Sub: 100% up to 50 + 50 Free Spins on Starburst – all three times over!

Another new little sister, this time to the thrilling Thrills Casino. 150 free spins with NO WR – can’t be bad.

 

Cherry Casino Sub: 100% up to 200

Returning to Kasino King for the first time since they split from the Betsson Group in 2013.

 

EuroSlots Sub: 100% up to 200

This is a sister site to Cherry Casino, offering the same great service and low bonus WRs.

 

EuroLotto Sub: 5 Scratchcards – No depoit required. 100% up to 25 + 20 Free Spins on Gonzo’s Quest.

Another sister to Cherry – Lottery based, but they have the same full suite of NetEnt & MG games as the others.

 

All these casinos also have Microgaming and other brands of games.

They also all have cashable bonuses with low WR – the lowest one is only Bonus x35.

For more details about these great new casinos, including bonus details, please see my NetEnt Page.

THREE old Rival casinos are re-born!

 

I am delighted to announce that 3 casinos which fell by the wayside a year or so ago have been taken over by arguably the most honest and reputable Rival group – the people running Tropica and Cash O’ Lot casinos.

They promise to give you great Customer Service and the fastest possible cash-outs – even for USA players!

 

These are the re-launched brands, with their initial Welcome Offers:

Gibson Casino: $/€/£25 Free Chip and 400% Match Bonus up to $/€/£2,000

Ricardo’s Casino: $/€/£7 Free Chip and 400% Match Bonus up to $/€/£2,000

Sahara Sands Casino: $/€/£7 Free Chip and 300% Match Bonus up to $/€/£600

 

You ARE allowed to sign-up and claim bonuses at all 5 casinos in their group, but only 1 at a time.

Please note: If you already had an account at these casinos in the past, you should log-in with your existing details and NOT create a new account, as this would be a breach of their “one account per customer” rule.

(Also note that Gibson Casino was originally called Tradition Casino up to September 2010).

 

New and existing USA players are accepted at all 5 casinos in the group. (No Canadians allowed).

I’m am pleased to announce that after a couple of years producing what I have to say have been mostly pretty average to poor new offerings, Rival have finally come up with some new and exciting slots once more!

 

Mystic Wolf was released in April and has a great Bonus Feature which can only be won during the Free-Spins. And you have the chance to get 50 of those free-spins! It is also the first Rival slot to feature Wilds which increase your win by x5 in normal spins and by a massive x10 in free-spins!

 

Blazin’ Buffalo went live mid-June and also features up to 50 free-spins and something I’ve not seen from Rival before: You can win up to 15 “Blazin’ Spins” during the normal free-spins – these give you up to 15 extra free-spins with reel 1 totally wild and multiplying all wins by x2. It also has a generous “Picking Bonus”.

 

On Buffalo the free-spins come thick and fast so I rate it as low to medium variance. Get the spins often enough though and your balance can shoot up (like mine did!) Due to the potential from a large number of free-spins and the rare but good paying bonus, I rate Mystic Wolf medium to high variance.

Are YOU brave enough to give them a try?

Both games are now available at all the casinos on my Rival Page.

Another great “Mega-Casino” joins KasinoKing!

 

I’m still scratching my head (and getting splinters!) about how I have managed to NOT put Gala Casino on my site before now. I’ve certainly known about them for years, but they somehow slipped through my net.

But anyway, they’re here NOW and that’s all that matters!

 

Gala is a “household name” in the UK due to the land-based Casinos & Bingo Halls they’ve had here for decades, and now they are also a BIG name in online gaming too. In the last couple of years they have improved and expanded their online site to be one of the biggest and best Mega-Casinos on the net today.

They are also Accredited by CasinoMeister – the premier online casino watchdog.

 

Gala offer a bewildering array of over 700 games from a staggering 21 different software suppliers including some of the biggest names in land-based casinos & arcades, like Mazooma, Playtech, IGT and many more.

Please read my brief “history of Gala” and details of exactly what they have to offer (including a pretty decent sign-up bonus) on my Mega-Casinos page by Clicking Here.

Crazy-low WR at Multi-Platform casino!

 

At the end of the second week of February, Video Slots made the surprise announcement that they were LOWERING the WR on their Welcome Bonuses from Bonus x30 to x20!

I could hardly believe this, when so many other casinos seem to be moving in the opposite direction, but it’s there in black and white on their website. So my advice is, if you don’t already have an account there – get in quick before they change their minds!

 

Video Slots offer their players a mind-boggling choice of over 670 games from the biggest range of software suppliers I have ever seen in one place: Microgaming, 2by2, BetSoft, Big Time Gaming, Cryptologic, Genesis, Leander, Multislot, NextGen, Play’N’Go, Push, Quickspin, Rabcat, Sheriff and more!

The Birth of the Mega-Casinos!

 

Not so many years ago online casinos used to only run on one brand of software (e.g. Microgaming, NetEnt, Rival, RTG, etc.), but in recent years rapid developments meant that they could offer games from multiple software suppliers and Mega Casinos were born!

These days some casinos offer 12 or even more different brands of software for players to choose from. This gave me a bit of a problem, because historically I’ve always arranged the 100’s of casinos I list on this site, grouped onto separate pages by the brand of software they use.

So to get round this I have just created a brand new page: Mega-Casinos!

Here you will find casinos who all have AT LEAST 6 different brands of software – take a look!

Looking for Thrills in 2014? You found them!

 

Although this casino only opened on December 11th 2013, I am already very confident that Thrills Casino will prove to be the latest reputable and popular NetEnt casino for players to trust and enjoy!   The team running it have decades of experience from previous online casinos and so you can be sure of first-class treatment.

 

They bring you all the very best slots from MicroGaming, NetEnt, Play’nGo and more – including all the most popular slots, like The Dark Knight Rises, Playboy, Dead or Alive, Blood Suckers, Immortal Romance, Tomb Raider and 100’s more!

 

All new players can claim a 100% Welcome Bonus of up to €100 – and they will also all be given 50 free-spins on the classic slot StarBurst.

 

To visit the very sleek Thrills Casino website, please Click Here now.

 

And here are three more thrilling casinos which I have just added to this website in January:

 

Video Slots first opened in March 2011 on the MicroGaming platform. In mid-2012, they set their sights on reaching their new highly set goals to offer with more games, more payment options, more exciting promotions & bonus offers than their main competitors.

They currently (Jan 2014) offer their players a mind-boggling choice of over 670 games from the biggest range of software suppliers I have ever seen in one place:

Microgaming, 2by2, BetSoft, Big Time Gaming, Cryptologic, Genesis, Leander, Multislot, NextGen, Play’N’Go, Push, Quickspin, Rabcat, Sheriff and Wagermill.

New players can get 20 free spins just for registering an account, 10 free chips on their first deposit & 100% up to €/$/£100 with low WR of just Bonus x20, Cashable. *

 

* Free Spins & Chips for certain countries only – please see their website for full details.

 

WinTingo is not totally brand new either – but it is new to this website in January 2014. They did used to be on a very little known software, but decided to switch to the most popular software, Microgaming, in 2012. They have also recently achieved the prestigious accolade of becoming CasinoMeister Accredited.

New players will get 100% of their deposit (up to €/$/£ 500 max) as Cashable Bonus using the Unique “CashPay” Cash-Back system:

For every £70 you wager, you get £2 in CASH added to your account. *   This is equivalent to getting a 100% bonus with WR of Bonus Only x35, but with the advantage that you can cash-out any time and forfeit the remaining bonus WITHOUT having to complete the full WR.

* Based on games which contribute 100% to the WR – some games count less (see website).

 

To visit the WinTingo website, please Click Here Now.

 

Grand Fortune Casino is a brand new RTG “sister” casino to the very popular Sunset Slots Rival casino!

New players can claim their welcome bonus FOUR times; 200% up to $2,000 maximum, WR (D+B)x30, Cashable, no maximum win amount! Only play on Slots & Keno counts towards the WR. (USA OK)

They also offer up to $4,000 in welcome bonuses for play on Blackjack or Video Poker

(A small number of countries are not eligible for the SUBs – please see their website for full details)

5 Brand New casinos from 5 Old Brand casinos! J

(Updated Dec-4th – was only 3 new casinos)

Allow me to explain that…

 

iNetBet has been online for as long as I can remember, but until now they only had a $US Casino.

But now in November 2013, they have just opened a €uro version!

Same great bonuses; reasonable WR, Cashable and no maximum win caps. Table Games Bonus where nearly all games count at 100%. 200% Slot bonus! Same fast cash-outs.

Click here to visit the brand new iNetBet.eu website now!

 

Intertops have a sterling online reputation stretching back to 1999! They have now added a “sister” casino to keep their RTG version company. Intertops Casino Classic uses WGS software (previously called V-Tech).

New players can get a 100% bonus up to $100, WR (D+B)x30, cashable. (USA OK) (No Canada)

Take a look at their Brand New website

 

Lincoln Casino is a Brand New sister casino to the popular Liberty Slots!

Same great WGS software – same games – same bonus terms… But maybe a change of scenery will also bring a change of luck? New players can get up to $5,000 in Welcome Bonuses! (USA OK)

Click here to visit the new website now.

 

Major Tom Casino opened right at the very end of Movember and is the 3rd casino from the ever popular Red Flush Group. Like their other MG casinos, they have kept their bonus wagering down to the old “standard” of Bonus Only x30. This is very welcome news for players who have seen other brands pushing theirs up and up recently.

Their website has been deliberately made to look very sparse with “off beat” wording – take a look!

 

Ladbrokes Vegas is a new Playtech Casino to run alongside Ladbrokes MicroGaming Casino and multi-brand “Games” casino. I have to be honest and say I think Ladbrokes have made a big mistake here – not only are they planning to ditch the MG casino (whose software is MUCH more popular than Playtech) next year, but they have also completely lost the plot with the Welcome Bonus wagering on this new brand: (D+B)x30, phantom.

OK for non-bonus players though, as cash-outs should be pretty quick. Visit website.

MicroGaming Casinos – Losing the bonus plot…?

For as long as I can remember (which is at least 7 years), the “standard” wagering (WR) on MicroGaming casinos’ bonuses has been Bonus (only) x30.

A few years ago some MG casinos increased their WRs and so I stopped listing them on my websites – why would players take on a high WR when there were still plenty of identical casinos with the old low ones?

 

But now this year (especially in the last few months) I have seen many other groups upping the WR on their welcome bonuses, e.g.:

The Palace Group, Go Wild and Fortune Lounge have all put theirs up to x40

Star Partners (VPL) have increased theirs to x50, while Jackpot Factory have gone mad with x60!

 

Two things I can’t understand; 1) What has changed in the last few years? The games all have the same RTPs as always, and reduced weighting of contribution %’s and maximum bet restrictions means the bonuses still favour the house in the long run.

And 2) How do these casinos expect to compete for new players in a very competitive market when there are still LOADS of other places offering Bx30 or even less for new sign-ups?

 

Thankfully there are still a minority of MG casinos offering Bx30 (e.g. 32Red, Ladbrokes, the Casino Rewards Group, the Red Flush group, etc.), but the way things are going these offers might hold for much longer, so my advice is get in quick before these other casinos lose the plot as well!

 

For the full list of the 70+ MGs I still list, with the WR they are all now demanding, please see this page:

Brand New Casino!

New Casino – No WR, No Restrictions…

Casino Bonuses; some players love them because of the extra play-time and more chances to get a big win, but some players hate them because of the often complicated Terms & Conditions which “trap” your money until the Wagering Requirements are met and the risk of accidently breaking a rule & losing your winnings.

 

This Brand New casino (opened in October 2013) is a breath of fresh air for the anti-bonus brigade!

No Bonus Casino is the only casino which promises you all this: NO Bonuses, NO Wagering Requirements, NO complicated T&Cs to wade through, NO games excluded from play, NO max bet restrictions AND 5% CASH back every time!

Just Deposit, Play, Enjoy, Win and Cash-Out whenever you like.

 

Currently this casino offers all the great NetEnt games and play only in €uros, but new software suppliers and different currency options are on the way in the coming months.

Play Scary Rich 3 at Tropica Casino

USAok

$25 Free, No deposit!

(New players only)

 

 

Are YOU brave enough for Scary Rich 3?

Right from when it was first launched back in December 2007, the first Scary Rich slot was incredibly popular with players due to its huge hit potential; During free-spins it’s possible to get 3 expanding wilds on the first 3 reels which guarantee a win on every line, with all wins at x4!

 

A year later and Scary Rich 2 was released – another very popular slot, this gave players more free-spins and a fixed x3 multiplier on the 3 expanding wilds.

 

Now almost exactly 5 years later we have Scary Rich 3! This latest incarnation has 50 win-lines as opposed to the 20-lines on the first two versions, but also it has the chance to win 666 free-spins. Yes, I did say 666!

No extra multiplier on the expanding wilds this time – but with that number of spins, you wouldn’t need that feature to guarantee a decent return. The Graphics and Sound on 3 are much better than the first 2 – a very good looking slot. For a list of casinos where you can try this new slot, Click Here!

 

Note: All 3 of these slots are High Variance; Scary to play, but they could make you Rich! J

Site update under way!

Some of the casino information on this site had become rather out-of-date. This is mainly because for the last 6 months or so I have basically been a builder and decorator, renovating the new house we bought at the end of last year. Every room needed major attention – a ridiculously time-consuming task!

But now with the house (nearly) finished I have been able to start my delayed “spring clean” of this website (Another ridiculously time-consuming task – please bear with me!).

Below I will add the pages as and when I finish checking that everything is current once more (in particular, Welcome Bonus details):

 

Playtech Casinos: All updated and TWO brand new casinos added. Take a look!

 

NetEnt based Casinos: All updated, FOUR new casinos and Slot Reviews added.

One of the new casinos has VERY low wagering requirements for British players! Take a look!

 

MicroGaming Casinos: Bonus details all updated and several new casinos added. Take a look!

 

Rival Gaming Casinos: Software and Slots reviews added. Reputable Casinos highlighted, duff ones dumped. Brand New casino (USA accepted) and Brand New slot for September 2013! Take a look! (USA OK)

 

RTG and NuWorks Casinos: Bonus details updated. Take a look! (USA OK)

 

More coming real soon!

SlotoCash’s Rivals now take USA players!

Two years ago Sloto’Cash were forced to close their Rival casinos for new USA registrations, but I am delighted to announce that they have now got an agreement to start accepting Americans again!

Their two Rival casinos are the ONLY ones of that brand which are CasinoMeister Accredited, so you know you are likely to only have top class service from this pair of casinos:

So, enough of my waffling, here they are:

Jackpot Grand: A new RTG casino offering a massive 400% up to $4,000 welcome bonus!

At last – Top Game Casinos you can trust?

 

Top Game casinos first started to appear back in 2008, but right from the off they were considered “slightly dodgy” at best by the majority of players and industry people. The software is fair (though there was an issue a few years ago where a change was implemented incorrectly on a live game), but they had some “player unfriendly rules”, not least of which was taking around 3 weeks to get cash-outs to players!   They also had limits on how much could be cashed-out with a certain period.

 

Up until November 2012 I was only recommending the “Box24” group of 3 Top game casinos, because I felt they were totally trustworthy and didn’t employ the same stupid rules most of the other TG casinos had. But players were still very wary about signing up due to the poor reputation on the Top Game brand as a whole.

 

I am now pleased to announce that this group has now been taken over by the very highly regarded Sloto’Cash and so hopefully, with their reputable backing, players will feel more confident about giving this unique & different software a go. These are the 3 casinos with their current Welcome Offers: : $24 free-chip

 

Box24 Casino: $24 free-chip and a SUB of 200% up to $1,000!

Black Diamond: $25 free-chip and a SUB of 200% up to $200

Spartan Slots: A sign-Up Bonus of 200% up to $400

 

All three casinos accept players from the USA. More details can be found here.

Loads of Brand New Casinos open in October!

 

I don’t know what’s so special about this October – but new casinos are popping up like acne on a teenager!

We’ve already seen 5 totally brand new casinos open (4 of which opened in the first 10 days of the month!) and more are expected very soon.   These are the new casinos, most recent listed first:

 

Old Havana Casino: This is a brand new casino from the Mainstreet Group who are one of the oldest and most trusted casino groups on the internet, having been around since 2001.

Accepting USA players, this casino offer new players a massive welcome bonus of 200% up to $5,000 which is fully cashable once WR is met  and has no maximum win amount from the bonus!

To see the full terms of this huge bonus, please see their website.

(USA OK)

 

Miami Club: I knew this casino was coming from the highly regarded Sloto’Cash Group some time ago, but even I was totally surprised and delighted to discover when it launched, that they have moved away from the RTG & Rival softwares used on their previous casinos and opted for WGS for this new one!  WGS software used to be called V-Tech (short for Vegas Technologies) and was incredibly popular with American players until all the casinos who were using it suddenly closed down without warning in May 2011.

 

I was also extremely pleased to see that they launched with very sensible and reasonable welcome bonuses; unlike many Rival or RTG casinos, at Miami Club the Bonus WR is only x20, it’s cashable, all games except Euro Roulette are allowed in wagering, there are no max bet limits and no max cash-out limits!

Almost sounds too good to be true! You can check it out yourself on their website.

(USA OK)

 

Play2Win: This is a brand new Rival Casino from a group which has been around since 2009.  Initially targeting the UK and Western Europe, they opened up to the USA in November 2012. They offer the full suite of over 150 great Rival games, and new players will also be given a 22 chip freebie to try them out; This free chip has an unusually high maximum cash-out of 10 x the chip = $/€/£ 222!

They also have many other ongoing promotions to challenge their players: Please see their website.

(USA OK)

 

Casumo: This is the latest in the line of brand new casinos running on the superb and increasingly popular Net Entertainment software. There really is a mini-explosion of casinos opting for this platform right now; I have already added SIX new NetEnts to my site this year and I know of a few more on the way!

Casumo are aiming to be a bit different from the rest though, describing their operation as “The World’s First Casino Adventure”…  Not quite sure what that means myself – but why don’t you have a look at their website & see what you think!

(No USA)  

 

Begado: Nice to see another new casino launching with the “RTG Spin-off” software NuWorks. To my knowledge there are only 3 or 4 other casinos using this relatively new platform which offers superb games similar to, but yet uniquely different from RTG.  Their Welcome Bonus is 333% up to $3,333 – 3 times!

This casino is the latest addition to the Win Place stable. I know some players are not impressed with this group due to their cash-out restrictions (maximum of up to $3,000 per transaction), but this is clearly stated in the T&Cs, other groups have similar rules and they DO pay. My advice about ALL casinos is: if you don’t like something in the T&Cs – don’t play there!   You can check the Banking T&Cs on their website.

Slot Software Guide

 

A few years ago most casinos used to offer slots from just one software brand. But over the last few years there has been an increasing trend for casinos to add slots from other providers to bolster their portfolios.

Remembering who has which brand of slots has become increasingly difficult – even I have trouble recalling where I have seen a particular one, so I have made a table to help me and you!

 

Click Here to see my new table of where to find slots from all these software providers:

Amuzi Gaming, Ash Gaming, Astra, Barcrest, Bellfruit, BetOnSoft, BetSoft, Blueprint Gaming, Boss Media, CTXM, Dynamite Idea, Electracade, Freemantle, Grand Virtual, MicroGaming (MG), Net Entertainment, NextGen, Novomatic, NuWorks, PlayTech, Rival Gaming, RealTime Gaming (RTG), Sheriff Gaming, Skill On Net, SlotLand (Own Brand), Top Game, Vegas Technologies, Virtue Fusion, WagerLogic (CryptoLogic), WagerWorks / IGT, WMS (Williams), Win-A-Day (Own Brand).

Have you seen Harry?

 

No – not Prince Harry naked in a Vegas hotel bedroom – I mean Harry Casino!

You may have done if you live in the UK, watch TV a lot and have seen their amusing ads… but otherwise you may well have never heard of them.

This casino has actually been “live” online since 2011, but until now they have only advertised on TV and not by the traditional method of using casino information sites like this one. I was delighted to be asked to be one of the first to advertise this great Net Entertainment based casino online.

 

Although managed independently, Harry Casino operates under the Betsson umbrella – one of the biggest & most trusted online gambling companies in Europe – so you can be confident of a high level of customer satisfaction from this reputable stable.

As well as all the fantastic NetEnt games, they also host the very best slots from MicroGaming, NextGen, CryptoLogic, PlayNGo, and many more!

 

New players will get a 100% Welcome Bonus up to £100, WR (D+B)x25, Cashable. (Some countries excluded – please check the Bonus Terms on their website for the full list)

 

So why not pop along to Harry Casino and check out what they have to offer!

Three new Games for USA Players

 

Mid-June has seen the release of 3 Brand New games on three different softwares, all of whom accept players from the USA! (as well as most other countries of the world).

 

Ancient Wonders – a new 50-line slot from NuWorks:

The designers have certainly crammed a lot into this new slot – it has ALL these features:

Stacked Wilds on the 3 centre reels making big hits possible.

7 free-spins with increasing multiplier from x1 to x7 – and the chance of re-triggers.

A picking bonus which awards up to 4 picks, each with a possible return of up to bet x100.

3 Random Progressive Jackpots to be won.

This new slot is ONLY available at the two NuWorks Casinos: Lucky Club and BuzzLuck

 

Pub Crawlers – new Bonus Video Slot from Rival Gaming:

A pub full of insects out on the lash? That’s what you get with this new offering!

Up to 20 free-spins at x3, Dart-board bonus, Ugly Bugs and Squishy Cockroaches – not for the squeamish!

But is it any good? Read my full review of it on my sister site here: Pub Crawlers Review

Available to USA players at Dendera or Vegas2Web, and other countries at any Rival Casino.

 

Multi-Player Roulette – new at RTG casinos:

Roulette in “real casinos” has always been a social experience, but online it’s been rather solitary.

Well not any more! Now you can chose to play with other online gamblers – watch how they play, bet on the opposite numbers, or pick up some tips!

Multiplayer Roulette should now be available at all RTG Casinos.

Rival release their first ever 50-line Slot

 

Until 2012 all Rival Bonus Video Slots and iSlots have had either 15 or 20 win lines.

But this year they have already released 2 new slots with 25 win-lines (Wild Safari and Nuclear Fishing), and now in May 2012 we have their first ever 50-line slot.

 

Fast Lane has a Touring Car Racing theme, superb graphics and sounds and two bonus features as well as expanding wilds on 3 of the reels.

But it still has the recent Rival trait of giving players most of their pay-back via a "Pseudo-Skill" bonus round, rather than lots of free-spins with a good multiplier, so in that respect it is a little disappointing.

Who cares?

The “Rival” 3D Slots are Back!

 

… but NOT at Rival Casinos!

You may recall that Rival started adding so called “3D” slots to their games lists in 2010. But then, at the end of October 2011, they were all removed from ALL Rival casinos.

 

These games were not actually produced by Rival themselves, but by an independent software company called Sheriff Gaming. Well I’m pleased to reveal that they have just been added to the ever increasing portfolio of wonderful games at the NetEnt based Come On Casino!

 

Now you can once again enjoy great slots like Funky Chicken, The McMurphy's, Crazy Jewelry, French Cuisine, Dr. Magoo's Adventure, Beretta's Vendetta and 18 more, many of which are brand new!

 

Alongside these new games, Come On Casino also offer all the superb NetEnt slots as well as the very best slots from CTXM and MicroGaming, with more being added all the time. Have a look!

After I reported on a forum that I spotted in January that some Rival slots have a “glitch” where Wilds expand when they are not supposed to (i.e. when they do NOT form a winning combination), Tropica Casino did some testing and said the problem was now fixed. It does look like they are correct, but even so they have decided to offer a €/$/£ 100 FREE-CHIP for players to take and use to test the games themselves!

 

Click Here now to claim this €/$/£ 100 freebie!

Time to give Rival Casinos another look?

 

There is no denying that 2011 was a very bad year for Rival Gaming and their casinos. The main problems seemed to start from when they pulled out of the USA market in April, together with the sudden disappearance of some of their money processors (with their money!). The turmoil this caused resulted in quite a few casinos closing down and/or suffering processing and cash-flow problems. This even impacted on the production of new games and opening of new casinos, which had been quite virulent up until last year.

 

However I have noticed recently, signs that things are steadily improving and that the green shoots of recovery are starting to appear; This year they have released quite a few decent games already and new Rival casinos are also opening up. There are also now 3 Rival casinos accepting new American players, with more expected soon.

And two Rival casinos have recently been Accredited by CasinoMeister: Sloto'Cash & Desert Nights

 

I myself hardly played at Rivals in 2011, but I’ve gone back to them this year – and so far I’m really enjoying them and the new games, as well as my old favorites. Why don’t you take another look?

 

Recent New Games:

Diggin’ Deep: Mining themed slot with 3 bonus features. The digging feature usually pays pretty big!

Nuclear Fishing: An odd theme for a slot - try to catch the mutated fish and barrels of nuclear waste!

Wild Safari: A fun new i-Slot with expanding wilds and the chance to win 75 free-spins @ x3.

Sherwood Forest Fortunes: A great new i-Slot with stacked wilds and 3 different locations to reach.

 

Recent New Rival Casinos:

DomGame: Switched from NetEnt to Rival in April 2012. New players can get a €/£ 50 free chip!

Irish Luck: Re-launched with brand new owners, also in April 2012. New players can get an €/£ 11 free chip.

Crazy Luck: Opened late in 2011; They have lots of bonuses with very reasonable WR and a $/£10 freebie.

 

Rival Casinos Accepting New USA Players:

Vegas-2-Web, Golden Cherry, Crazy Luck, Dendera Casino.

Kasino King gets a Makeover!

 

No… not me personally – just this website!  You may have already noticed that this Home Page has a new look with less “in your face” flashing things, less dross, and menus only in one column, not down both sides of the page. Having been up and running for over 5 years now, the site had become frankly, a sprawling mess! So at the end of January I decided I had to start doing something to tidy it up a bit… in fact, a lot!

 

This site has grown to over 70 pages, some of which are so out of date that it is embarrassing; so some will be totally scrapped while others will be brought up-to-date. I will also be adding new pages with more useful player information, such as the couple I already have up and running:

Casino Terminology Explained and Fast Cash-Out Casinos

 

My casinos list has also grown to nearly 200 different establishments, but many of them have just proved to be of no interest to visitors to my site, some have “player unfriendly” terms, and some just don’t want me to carry on advertising them. So as part of my big tidy up, quite a few of them will be hitting the trash can!

 

I’m not sure how long all these changes are going to take, but hopefully weeks rather than months. In the meantime, thank you for your understanding and thanks for visiting my site!

Two Great New iSlots from Rival Gaming

 

Following on from the superb “sequel slot” Hole in Won – The Back Nine in July, Rival introduced 2 more games in their ever popular and unique iSlot range; one in November 2011 and one in January 2012:

 

Sherwood Forest Fortunes: Based on the Robin Hood story, this slot is both wonderfully colourful and fun to play as Robin progresses though the various levels toward the ultimate show-down with the evil Sheriff. Featuring stacked wilds, bonus rounds and up to 25 free-spins at x3 multiplier, there’s always something coming soon!

 

Wild Safari: Fairly obvious what the theme of this one is! I found this a great slot to play with the bonus features hitting frequently. The expanding wilds on reels 1 and 5 often boost you winnings while you seek out the bonus round or up to 75 free-spins at x3.

 

These slots can be enjoyed for fun or for real at Vegas-2-Web, Superior, Tropica, Vegas Sky, or any other casino listed on my Rival Casinos page.

BuzzLuck is back!

 

Some of you may remember BuzzLuck Casino which launched on RTG software back in March 2009. At the time they were a breath of fresh air as they brought a new “feel” to player’s gaming experiences with unique promotions, competitions, quizzes and even their own radio station! 

Sadly they were very short lived and closed down exactly 1 year later. I heard through the grape-vine that it was because too many players won and the financial pressure of this caused their closure.

 

I never thought the casino would see the light of day again, so you can imagine how shocked I was when the Club World Group announced out of the blue on October 24th that they are resurrecting the brand!

 

BUT… apart from the name, everything is brand new, right down to a brand new software platform: NuWorks.

Because this casino is backed by possibly the most reputable RTG group on the net, I am confident they won’t suffer any of the problems of the old BuzzLuck and that players can look forward to a safe and pleasant gaming experience. Oh, and unlike the old BuzzLuck, this new one DOES accept players from the USA!

Please try out the new BuzzLuck and let me know what you think!

 

PS: A little heads up that I have heard of another well-known brand who are about to add two other well established casino software types to their existing one & re-launch in November! This is VERY exciting news – watch this space to be the first to hear about it!

Hmmm… I don’t think they will be staying with Rival for much longer…

Sloto are now Rival and RTG!

 

When Sloto’Cash launched in 2007, they quickly became most player’s number one Rival powered casino due to great service and fast cash-outs! In January 2011 they added a sister Rival casino: Desert Nights

However, political developments meant that all Rival casinos were forced to pull out of Canada in 2009, and all except Golden Cherry were closed off to new USA registrations in September 2011. So in order to carry on supplying these key markets, Sloto decided to add an RTG casino in October 2011.

 

This move has led to a lot of confusion for their players, so I have just clarified with Sloto direct that this is the current situation (as of early October):

 

Sloto’Cash Rival: No new players from anywhere, but all existing members (including the USA) can carry on playing as before, as long as they already have the casino installed on their PC.

 

Sloto’Cash RTG: Anybody from anywhere can sign-up and play at this new casino… EXCEPT existing Sloto Rival customers, who will already have an account created for them. These players will be sent a new password for logging-in, BUT they can also claim all the new welcome bonuses at the RTG version!

 

Desert Nights (Rival): Open for new and existing players from anywhere, except the USA, France & Canada.

No body wants to play there… WHY???

Introducing a Brand New casino software:

 

Viaden Gaming was first formed in 2006, providing software solutions for various other online gaming and betting organisations. In the background they started developing their own casino software package, but this was a low priority at the time and so it has taken a long time to come to fruition.

It was not until the start of 2011 that they launched their first casino; Big Casino

 

I was given access to their games in “beta mode” and proved them with lots of feedback which they took on board to improve their games & correct a few minor errors. The casino went fully live in March of 2011 but without a big advertising push as they were still developing more unique games and ironing out other minor glitches which any new operation will encounter. In the industry this is called a “soft launch”.

 

Their advertising campaign literally just went live (September-18th) and I was delighted to be invited to be one of the very first sites to start promoting their new & unique product.

Big Casino offers its customers all the usual casino card, dice, wheel and slot games as you would expect, but they also have generous bonus policies, with players able to ask for extra cash to play with on every deposit! The wagering on their bonuses is also a very sensible Bonus x 30 – the same as most MG casinos. In addition, all players earn loyalty £ as they play – no WR attached!

 

The only bad news is that at present Big Casino are accepting players from the UK ONLY.

Hopefully this will change in the not too distant future…

 

EXCLUSIVE KasinoKing welcome bonus:   200% up to £300! (The standard bonus is only 100%)

To get this exclusive bonus you must Click Here, sign-up and use bonus code: KK200

WR is Bonus x 30, ALL games count in WR and it is Cashable!

New Casinos and New Bonuses!

 

As usual I am always on the look-out for new reputable casinos to recommend on this site, and also keep a close eye on which casinos offer the best value welcome bonuses for new players.

You can find details about all these by browsing my many pages, but I’m going to give you a “taster” of what’s been added / improved in the last couple of months:

Euro Grand  (Sister Playtech casino of William Hills): Bonus of up to £1,000 with WR only (D+B)x12.

EU Casino: EXCLUSIVE 400% bonus with WR of only Bonus x 30! (First Skill-On-Net software casino)

More bad news for American players

 

April 15th 2011 is being called “Black Friday” by most members of the online gaming community, for that is the day the DOJ seized and closed down 3 big poker rooms and froze accounts in multiple banks in many countries worldwide in an attempt to stop people enjoying online gambling.

Although not effected directly, as a precaution MicroGaming stopped serving ALL existing US players and Rival Gaming stopped their many “white label” casinos from accepting any new American players.

 

This means about 12 MG and 35+ Rival casinos are no longer available in the US of A, reducing still further the options for American online players. Of course, none of the rogue casinos (barring a few dodgy Rivals) have pulled out, so players still need to be very careful in choosing where to play from the limited selection which is left. It’s not all bad news though and we can still recommend over 50 US friendly, reputable sites. These can all be found in one convenient place, here! (Includes 6 new casinos which have been added this year).

 

Many people think the actions of the US Government are just a “clean up” exercise to make room for their own regulated and licensed online Casinos & Poker rooms, something which is long overdue. Even if this is the case, it could still be many years before this actually happens. In the meantime, please take care.

 

UPDATE: Exactly one month after “Black Friday” it was announced on May 15th that the English Harbour group of 7 Vegas Technology casinos are closing their doors to all NEW players. So that’s yet more good casinos Americans can’t use. Looks like the days of gambling online are numbered in the USAL

 

UPDATE 2: On May 24th ALL the other VTech casinos also announced they are closing down. Bad news.

Reputable Rival group switches to Top Game!

 

The Box24 group of casinos launched in November 2009 and quickly became known as one of the best Rival Gaming operators on the net. They were reputable for high quality customer service and among the fastest cash-outs. It’s quite ironic in a way that this group stemmed from Black Diamond casino using the Top Game software, but later switched to Rival.

On August 24th 2001, with the American market being shut off to nearly all Rival casinos (see news item below), they have done a u-turn and gone back to Top Game!

 

I am optimistic that they will continue to offer their players world-wide the same great level of service as before, and I’m praying that they’ll soon improve their welcome bonuses too; because as they stand today, they are some of the worst bonuses I’ve ever seen, and I can not recommend that any players take them.

 

Check out their new sites yourself and see what you think!

Good News & Bad News for Rival players

 

First the Good News: July saw the release of the first new Rival slots since March 2011:

Summer Ease - This 20 line bonus video slot has two features; Pilot your luxury power boat though the buoys - the more you clear, the more you win. Even better, you can win up to 75 free-spins – all at x3!

The Back Nine – At last, a sequel to one of my favourite iSlots – Hole in Won! This new one has a far superior crazy golf game, with 9 new challenging holes to attempt – can YOU get under par?

Funky Chicken – The latest addition to their “3D” slots (which aren’t 3D). Free-spins aplenty!

You can try this new slot in “play mode” or for real right now at: Royal Club, Bet Phoenix or Sloto'Cash

 

Also: We now have a NEW Rival casino! Vegas Amped opened on August 1st. Players can get $250 free play for 30 minutes – no deposit required! Other bonus details to follow…

 

Now the Bad News: Unfortunately another previously reputable Rival casino has fallen from grace and found their way onto my Blacklist; Vegas Regal recently denied winnings to 2 different German players who had both played totally within the terms of the bonuses they were given. The casino’s behaviour is totally despicable. You can read more details about what they did on my Blacklist Page.

 

And: It has just been announced that Rival casinos will stop taking new USA players from August 7th.

The only exception to this is Golden Cherry who are still taking new USA sign-ups.

Existing players will still be able to log-in and play as normal for the time being. More news to follow…

Try out the new Alien Robots slot right here on my site!

 

Those NetEnt guys are still very busy producing great new slots to add to their portfolio at around 1 per month and their latest offering is once again something unique which I have never seen before!

 

You’ve all played 30-line slots and you’ve all played 243 all-ways slots – but have you played both at the same time on one slot? Well you can now! Alien Robots does just that, and it also has another great feature; up to 50 retriggerable free-spins in which any Wilds expand and are then “stuck” in position while the remaining reels respin to give you a second chance of more great winning combinations.

 

This slot is unique, it’s fun, and it had BIG payout potential!

You can try a free demo of it right now, right here on my site, by clicking this link: Alien Robots

 

You can also try many other NetEnt slots here, like my favourites Jack Hammer & Gonzo’s Quest

I’ve been a very busy bee in the first two months of 2011, and have just added my 19th casino which is new to this site this year!   Some of them are brand new (only just launched), while some have been around for a while already and I’ve only now brought them on board.

 

Bringing new casinos in is always a bit of a worry, because obviously I only want to promote reputable places who will treat their customers with the respect and service they deserve. So I only add ones who I’m pretty confident will meet the criteria I expect from them. Of course, one can never been 100% certain about any casino; even the good ones can turn bad (e.g. Betfair!) – one can only do one’s best in making a judgement.

 

I met representatives from several of these new places at the recent casino conference in London (which helps build confidence in a brand), while others are “sisters” to places I already recommend, or from a brand which I’m sure I can trust.   I welcome e-mail feedback about any of these places, good or bad! 

 

In summary, the nineteen consist of: 3 x NetEnt, 4 x Rival, 5 x BetOnSoft, 2 x Top Game, 1 x Playtech and 4 x Live Dealer casinos.  They offer Welcome Bonuses of up to $1,000, with WRs as low as (D+B)x12.

You can check out all the details of them on This Page.

 

April Update: More added – it’s now something like TWENTY-EIGHT new casinos this year!

More mistakes from Rival on their new slots…

 

Although Rival Gaming is one of my personal favourite softwares, they have had an unfortunate habit going back many years, of releasing new slots with glaring errors in the rules or pay-tables.

To be fair, I hadn’t spotted that many recently… until I checked out their four new “3D” slots;

Dog Casher, French Cuisine, McMurphy and Shangri-La.

These slots are all pretty good! Though not really 3D of course, they are a little bit different to Rival’s older slots and all seem to be of medium to high variance since most of the pay-outs come from the bonus features which can be fairly large (not mega); the wins in “normal spins” are generally pretty pathetic.

 

So to the errors: Well I spotted 4 fairly easily, but they could well be more. The first glaring error is in the “Help” screen of McMurphy where it says the average pay-out of the slot is 67%... at least, I hope that’s a mistake!!!

 

The other 3 are all on the Shangri-La slot; 1 on the main playing screen and 2 in the pay-tables (clue: one is a grammatical error, the other a mistake in the game rules).

Just for a bit of fun, see if you can spot them too and send me your answers! KK@KasinoKing.co.uk

(PS: None of the mistakes effect returns to the player – the slot does play and pay-out correctly).

 

You can play Shangri-La and all the other 3D slots in “Fun Mode” at Superior Casino or Box 24

Happy hunting!

Who cares?

“Criminal” welcome bonus from new Desert Nights Casino…

I had been eagerly awaiting the launch of the new “sister” casino to SlotoCash for a couple of months… But when Desert Nights finally opened for business on January 21st 2011 I was hugely disappointed with the welcome bonuses they have to offer new players; They have a headline-grabbing “$10,000 free” on their banners, but when you look at the actual detail of the offer it is extremely poor value for money.

 

This is a ten-part bonus, with the first part being 100% up to $1,000, not only is it Phantom (some call this Sticky), but also it has a ridiculous WR of (D+B)x25. So that means if you took the max you would have to wager $50,000 on games with an average return of 96%. Your average loss is therefore $2,000.

The maths is simple: Deposit $1000 + Bonus $1000 Loss $2000 Phantom bonus $1,000 = -$1000.

 

Your average expected loss is double the amount of your deposit! In other words, you have virtually ZERO chance of meeting the WR with enough to cash-out even the tiniest of profits. To make it even worse, one of the conditions is you must win 2 x the bonus amount before you are allowed to cash-out!! (i.e. get to +$4000).

The ONLY way you could win enough to cash-out would be if you got a higher than 104% return on your play during the WR – that’s a full 8% above your expected return! That being the case, you might as well deposit without a “bonus” and play without the restrictions. In my opinion, Phantom offers with crazy-high WR and min cash-outs like this are not “bonuses” at all – they are player traps and bordering on criminal.

This bonus scores 2.0 on my bonus rating system = well below the point at which I stop recommending that players take the bonuses.

 

They also have a free-play bonus of $500 for 30 minutes, which sounds much better on the face if it because the bonus is cashable in the second stage. But again, a closer look at the detail reveals the WR is (D+B)x35 which actually makes this much worse than the deposit match, with a rating of only 0.14!

 

I have no doubt that Desert Nights will be as trustworthy, reliable and popular as SlotoCash – but if it’s decent bonuses you’re after – I think you’d better look elsewhere. (Clue: Try here!)

You ain’t NEVER played slots like THIS before…

 

Just when I thought I had seen every slot concept possible, NetEnt come up with not just one, but TWO great new ideas which I have never seen anywhere before! 

 

Crocodopolis (Net Entertainment), 9/10

This slot only has one Wild symbol on it, but you chose which reel it appears on, and that choice determines whether it expands or not, multiplies by up to x3 or not…

 

Jack Hammer (Net Entertainment), 8/10

The first thing you will notice is that each symbol position is an individual spinning reel of its own; nothing new about that, Playtech & WagerWorks have had these for years. But what makes this slot unique is that ANY win you get is held in position while all the remaining reels spin again, giving you increasing chances of hitting more and more symbols and therefore achieving bigger wins!

 

New in December 2010:

Hall of Gods (Net Entertainment), 10/10

Expanding Wilds, Free-spins, 3 Progressive Jackpots, Great Graphics, Superb Sounds – what more could you possibly ask for in a slot?

 

For full details & my mini-reviews of these, just click on the slot’s name above.

Rival introduce “3D” slots… which aren’t!

 

Early in December a few Rival casinos announced the arrival of their new “3D” slots. Initially just two: Dr Magoo’s Adventure and Crazy Jewelry – but more are expected to follow. These new slots are currently only available to play in “flash” mode – it’s not clear yet whether they will be added to the download casino at a later date.

 

But are they really 3D? I don’t think so!

To be proper 3D they would have to be viewed through those special glasses you have to wear at the cinema.

OK – I agree they have done a VERY good job with the enhanced graphics (especially in the intro movies) giving them “depth” and making them seem very realistic – I can’t argue with that!

 

But are they any good? Well… not bad. Both slots have an expanding wild on the centre reel and interesting bonus features. Dr Magoo has free-spins which use a different set of reels and symbols, 3 of which are scatter pays. Crazy Jewelry has a fun little “Jewel Testing” pick feature with large win potential.

So, in my opinion; Fun? Yes. 3D? No!

 

Try these slots yourself in fun mode, currently only at: Superior Casino and Box 24 (group).

Betfair ARE rogue!

Giant Betfair face being rogued… !

 

Betfair is one of the biggest and most popular online betting groups in the whole of Europe, but now they are on the brink of a total catastrophe!

 

In November they launched a “Happy Hours” promotion for their online casino. But unfortunately they screwed up the T&C’s in THREE ways; by having a WR which was too low, allowing play on low house-advantage games and letting players claim the same bonus over and over again.

 

Naturally many players took the generous promotion Betfair offered them, and many of them were able to win. Some players won LARGE amounts!

 

When Betfair realised their mistake, they added to it by making THREE more mistakes;

They confiscated the winnings of 100’s (or 1000’s?) of players, even though they played within the terms.

They claimed back money they had already paid out to players’ e-wallets and bank accounts.

They will not be paying back players who lost while doing the promotion.

 

Bottom line is; when a player makes a mistake, the player pays. When Betfair make a mistake, the player pays.

This is NOT the way to run a reputable organization and if Betfair don’t see common sense soon, they are going to be rogued by all the top “watchdog” sites, not to mention facing probable court action.

I have already removed all their banners and blacklisted them here at KK.

Two new payment options for USA players.

 

The highly regarded operator of Box 24, Black Diamond & Spartan Slots Rival Powered casinos announced in November that they are now accepting Echeck40 and Gold Pay for USA player deposits and withdrawals.

Both these new options allow player transactions directly to & from banks, checks or Western Union and have relatively low fees compared to some other web-wallets.

More great new slots at Sky Vegas!

 

Sky Vegas have released another 6-8 new slots recently, including some of the Marvel Hero games, like The Hulk, King Kong and Call Of Duty 4. But one of the “traditional” slots in particular took my eye – Chuzzle!  

This is a really fun game and it boasts THREE great bonus features:

15 free-spins with up to x7 multiplier! See my YouTube Video (Not a particularly big win)

Reaction Bonus; Like Bejeweled - hard to explain, so please see my other YouTube Video.

Pick a Bottle; Click on one of the 3 or more scatter symbols for a win up to 500x your bet!

 

Another new feature from this casino is their first Multi-Player slot; Community Cops ‘n’ Robbers

Based on the very popular arcade game, this 5-reel 20-line slot has a bonus feature which when triggered by any one player, all the others benefit from.  I wasn’t expecting much, but I made £70 on it in minutes!

The bonus takes at least 3 different forms, here’s 2 of them I recorded on YouTube:

Hot Pursuit Bonus (won £72.50 from a £1 spin)

Cash Explosion (Only £9 from a 40p spin)

 

You can try these new Super-Slots yourself for free (or claim a 100% bonus up to £150) at Sky Vegas!

Kasino King celebrates NINE years of beating casinos!

 

When I first became a “bonus hunter” back in May 2001 I never would have imagined that I would still be beating the casinos even a couple of years later, let alone NINE straight years – but here we are!

 

These are my headline stats for 9-years (108 months) of casino bonus play:-

 

Winning Months: 93

Losing Months: 15

Best Month: +$2,764 (May 2007)

Worst Month: -$785 (December 2009)

Best Year: +$12,313 (2008)

Worst Year: +$576 (2001 – but only 8 months of play)

Biggest Single Win: £1,452 (approx. $2,033) on The Osbournes, January 2009; See Screenshot.

 

My reports detailing all my wins & losses from all 108 months can be viewed here: KK’s results log

 

Here’s to the next 9 (or more) years!!! J

Doo-Wop Daddy-O… WTF?

 

Doo-Wop Daddy-O – “What the hell is that?” I hear you cry! Well it’s the brand new bonus video slot released by Rival Gaming on August 25th 2010… and it may well make you cry!

I gave it a few spins in “fun mode” the morning it appeared to sus it out and here is my mini review:-

 

First impressions were quite good; Graphics look good, sounds are good, spins nicely.

I soon noticed a significant difference from most (all?) other Rival slots – it has 3 lots of scatter symbols. Two of these award picking style bonus rounds, while the scatters themselves pay zilch like on their other games, but the 3rd type of scatter DOES pay for hitting 2 or more, though WITHOUT triggering a bonus feature.

It also has a nice feature where wins made with the wild symbol are multiplied by the number of wilds used – this means you could get up to 4x the win listed on the pay-table, like this x3 win: ScreenShot.

 

However, I also soon noticed this slot has a couple of annoying facets & glitches…

I got both types of feature in just a few spins; with the Soda Fountain Bonus the welcome screen says “combine the ingredients” so I expected to be able to chose – but you can’t chose, it TELLS you where you must click! See this for yourself on YouTube (my first ever go at that bonus!)

Also, when the Drag Race bonus round finishes you get a screen where the total amount won counts up on the screen, with a “Continue (back to the slot)” button – but it doesn’t wait for you to click the button, it just goes back before the count-up has even finished!

The last thing I personally found annoying is the way the border around the slot flashes while you’re playing.

 

You can play this new slot for fun or for real right now at Box 24 or Sloto'Cash and it should soon be available at all other Rival casinos too; for a full list please go to this page: Rival Casinos.

Who cares?

Microgaming 2 – opens for USA players this June!

To be honest I don’t fully understand this (especially the bit about not having to download new software) but I received the following communication from the Playshare Group, after recent indications that ALL Microgaming casinos will be completely pulled out of the USA on June 1st:-

 

As of the 1st of June, 2010, play for US players on CasinoShare and Grand Mondial will be moved off the Microgaming platform and we will begin licensing software from a brand new software provider. The new software will have a similar look and feel, stability and most of the features you have become accustomed to, but with some notable changes. This change has been made in order to ensure that we are able to continue offering safety, service and exciting gaming to all our customers.

 

This new casino, called CasinoShare US, launches on the 17th of May, 2010, and will offer players the same look and feel as the Microgaming software they all know and love, as well as all of the features and most of the games they have come to expect from an online casino.

 

All US players at CasinoShare will be migrated to CasinoShare US by the 17th of May, 2010, whilst all US players at Grand Mondial players will be migrated on the 31st of May, 2010. From a player perspective, the migration process will be completely seamless and won't be required to download new software or open a new account. They will utilize their existing accounts and their balances will be transferred.

 

Whether this means they will be taking NEW American customers is not clear, but I imagine they will be.

Time will tell...

Six new Rival casinos to open in April… (or not?)

At the beginning of the month I was very confidently predicting that we would see SIX brand new Rival casinos opening for business in April 2010!  Now (mid-month) I’m not so confident; 3 new ones have started up, but 2 others which I know for sure are coming very soon still haven’t appeared on the scene yet.

Time will tell, I suppose, if my prediction was right or not – there’s still over a week to go…!

 

Here are the three which have opened in April, and a little bit about them:

Black Diamond – Sister to the highly rated Box24 casino – they switched over from Top Game software.

Supreme Play – Another sister – this time to 21 Grand; they have launched with some of the worst welcome bonus offers I have ever seen anywhere!!!  I would only recommend this casino to non-bonus players.

Sahara Sands – This one is independent, and as far as welcome bonuses go is the best of the three so far.

 

For more about these casinos, including full info on their welcome bonuses, go to this page: Rival Casinos.

Watch this space to see if I’m right about another 3 opening!

Update: Well I was wrong! I don’t know what the delay is, but it looks like we’ll have to wait a bit longer…

Old news…

Awesome new slot from NetEnt:

Net Entertainment software is very low profile compared to the “Big Four”, but like many other of the less well-known brands, they have some brilliant games designers who come up with something different, not same old, same old like you get with MG, RTG or Rival.  They have produced about 10 great new slots in the last year.

 

Their latest release is the excellent Gonzo’s Quest, which went live on March 25th, 2010;

This 20-line slot features amazing “Avalanching Reels” (like WagerWork’s DaVinci Diamonds and MG’s Tomb Raider II); Each winning symbol explodes and more symbols drop down & each time the multiplier increases!

It goes x1, x2, x3 & x5 – and in free spins these are TREBLED up to x15 maximum!

The more you win the more excited Gonzo gets – see him moonwalk & catch your coin fountain in his hat!

The graphics on this are totally superb, even though this is a “flash” no-download software. Screenshots: 1 2

 

Gonzo’s Quest is available now (March-25) at Bet24, and should be at all other NetEnt casinos very soon.

Visit our Best Bonuses by Software page for a reputable Net Entertainment casino to play at.

Old news & Planet23 has gone bust!

 

Kasino King now brings you 190 casinos!

 

To be honest, I had no idea how many casinos were listed on this site until I added another THREE new ones on March 13th, after getting back to work following a 2-week break. I decided it’s about time I counted them and even I was amazed to find it’s a staggering 190 different casinos! But that’s not all – there are more to come!

These are the three latest additions with their sign-up offers:-

 

Bet 24 - This NetEnt casino is just one part of the well-known Sports Betting company and football sponsor.

SUB: 100% up to €100 WR (D+B)x15, Cashable.  (No USA) 

 

Sega Casino - The Arcade Game maker has incorporated some of those themes into their Playtech casino.

SUB: 100% up to €/£360 WR (D+B)x20, Cashable.  (No USA) 

 

Planet 23 (gone bust!) - The very latest of the ever popular Rival casinos - with bonuses for high-rollers.

SUB: 200% to $/€/£1,000, FIVE times over! WR (D+B)x40,Slots only (no progressives), Cashable.   (USA OK)

Special Summertime Bonuses:

 

Summertime is traditionally a slow time in the online casino world, so some casinos try to encourage a bit more interest by offering more generous welcome bonuses. Here’s just a few…

 

Betsson Casino (NetEnt); Previously they didn’t offer welcome bonuses at all, just monthly ones. But now they are offering new players 50% up to €50 with a very low WR of just Bonus x 25, which = (D+B)x8.33!

All games allowed, except no Roulette, Baccarat, Punto Banco, Video Poker and BlackJack   (No USA) 

 

Virgin Casino (WW); Their old welcome bonus was just 100% up to £100, but now, for the duration of the World Cup, they are offering 200% up to £200! WR Bonus x 25, post wager.

Allowed: MOST slots, instant win games & 2 types of Video Poker – please check T&Cs carefully!  (No USA, Canada, Australia) 

 

{Edit} The special offers at two Rival casinos which were listed here mid-June have now ended, but please see my Rival Powered page for other great exclusive offers!

 

Note: The Virgin & Rival bonuses are only available to players clicking on the casino names above!

New Rival casino – best bonus EVER!

 

March saw the arrival of the 34th Rival casino, Orange Gamez

On March 23rd they made available the best bonus I have ever seen at a Rival casino; 150% up to $750 with WR of only (D+B)x10, fully cashable with no maximum cash-out amount!  If I’m totally honest (I always am!) I think this is a mistake by the casino – but it’s there in the cashier for the taking right now – get in quick before it’s gone!  I claimed it just now – up to the max of course.

Make sure you take a screenshot of the terms in the cashier screen in case there’s any problem later.

 

EDIT: Well I was right – it was an error and the offer got pulled within hours.

However they have now made available an exclusive offer which I am able to offer to all new players:

121% up to $605, WR (D+B)x14, Cashable, no max cash-out.  Click here to download & claim this offer.

Note: This offer is ONLY available if you click on a link on this site. (Other sites may have the same offer).

Not one, but TWO new Rival slots in a week! 

Update: Now THREE in a month!

 

March 9th was the official release date for the new Rival bonus video slot Candy Cottage:

This 5-reel, 20-line slot is based on the traditional Hansel and Gretel fairytale, and features a pseudo-skill candy eating Bonus round, 10 Free Spins at x3, and an expanding wild symbol on reel 3.

I tried it on day one, and to be brutally honest it’s pretty dull. Unfortunately the Rival slot designers seem to be stuck in a rut and incapable of producing something a little different, like the recent great releases at 3Dice & Wagerworks (details in the articles below), or Playtech & the older slots at Grand Virtual.

Give it a try & let me know if you agree. Try it for free with real money by taking a no-deposit bonus at any one of 20+ Rival casinos – see this list.

 

This was the second new Rival slot in a week, after the release of Diamonds Down-Under exclusively at Box24 casino only, on March 5th. (New players get $/€/£24 FREE with no deposit, to try this new slot!)

 

That means there are now 3 Rival Casinos with unique slots; the others are Sloto'Cash & Slot Power.

 

Update: March 17th saw the third new slot this month: Shamrock Isle!  This 20-line bonus slot plays MUCH better than Candy Cottage, bonus features hit FAR more frequently and players have the chance of winning 125 free-spins all at x3 and with expanding wilds on the first 3 reels!

 

I have also just heard that yet another new Rival Slot will be hitting our small screens on April 1st (I hope it’s not a joke!); this one, to celebrate this summer’s Football World Cup, is called Global Cup Soccer.

Brilliant new slot concept at Sky Vegas!

 

Sky Vegas have 6 new slots so I went to get some data for my site; one in particular took my eye - Cash Drop.   It's quite hard to explain how this slot works, but basically each individual position spins to a symbol with a coloured border; 3 or more symbols on a win line pays out, but also if there is a chain of 5 of the same colour hexagons on a win-line, they explode and more symbols fill in the gaps. Any wins pay again, but at x1 more multiplier!  I really liked the look of it so deposited £50 to try it for real. I started with 60p spins and it seemed OK, so upped to £1 spins. After 100 spins my bank was still near enough where I started, so I went to £2 spins, then to £4 spins... and hit a biggie!  (i.e. £339). See this ScreenShot.

 

You're probably totally confused by my attempt to explain it, but it's the best I can do. To show how it works I've uploaded a short video of it here.

(Takes a minute or two for the page to fully load before the video plays at the proper speed)

 

This slot is awesome... but obviously high variance, so caution is advised!

You can try it yourself for free (or claim a 100% bonus up to £150) at Sky Vegas!

The newest Rival to hit our small screens has set it’s stall out to copy the extremely popular MicroGaming bonus model of giving players “free-money” to play with for a certain time and letting them keep any profit they make (up to certain limits) in the form of bonus chips.

They are obviously 100% committed to this since they’ve called themselves Spin Time Casino!

 

There is no reason to expect that these free-play offers will not be just as popular as the MG ones, particularly for players in the USA who can no longer play at MG casinos.

 

For players who don’t like or want the free-play bonuses, Spin Time also offer the same great 100% match as most MGs with wagering of only Bonus x30, fully cashable once WR is met.

I think this will make this casino very popular very quickly. Time will tell…

Royal Apollo opens its door to the USA… at last!

When Royal Apollo launched back in August last year, not only did they get off on the wrong foot by having bonuses with insanely high WR, but also they were the only Rival Powered casino not accepting USA players.

They pretty soon made their bonuses more realistic, and recently gave me exclusive bonuses to offer to players, which make them the Rival casino with the best value bonuses on the net! (Equal with one other).

 

And now they have just announced that they will be accepting players form the USA, as from sometime around mid-day on Tuesday January 26th.

 

To see the FIVE exclusive KK bonuses (including $24 No deposit, No risk), please see the top of this page.

Enjoy and good luck!

Who cares?

Two GREAT new slots from 3Dice!

This must be the season for inventive new slot ideas! Just when I thought the software people couldn’t really come up with anything new, we had the awesome new slot from WagerWorks (see the article in “previous news”), and now TWO amazing new slots from 3Dice! 

 

First there was Coral Clams; Here you can win up to 20 free-spins, all at x10, AND you also get a guarantee of increasing the number of spins and/or the multiplier by swimming around and kissing various sea-creatures!

 

Then a couple of weeks later they released Stick Shifter; At first this Fast-Car based game looked pretty poor to me – none of the incredible graphics of Coral Clams. But then I discovered that the free-spins seemed to be quite easy to hit, and they have features I have NEVER seen anywhere else! You start with 20 or 40 free-spins at x1, but only have to hit the Gear Shift symbol on reel 3 to “Shift up a gear” and get an additional 10 spins at an increased multiplier. Each time you hit it, you get 10 more spins; 10 @x2, 10 @x3, etc. up to 10 @x6. Once you use up your 10 spins, you drop back and carry on at the lower level. But in a very unusual twist, if you hit the Gear Shift symbol when you are already in 6th, you blow your transmission and your free-spins feature ends in a cloud of burning oil and gear-box parts!  Hard to explain, great to play! Check it out yourself at 3Dice!

Time for a BIG clear-out!

Ground-breaking new slot from Wagerworks!

This new slot, released in December 2009, has unique features I have never seen on any other slot before!  

It appears similar to other slots which have been around for quite a while, but it works in a different way;

 

At first it looks like a 5 reel, 4 row, 40 payline slot. But it actually has 20 reels arranged in a 5x4 grid.

What this means is ANY symbol can appear in ANY position on ANY spin; i.e. it is theoretically possible to hit the Wild symbol in all 20 spots and get a mega-win!

 

You can also play it in 2 different ways; as a straight-forward slot, selecting 1 to 40 win-lines, or for double the 40-line price you can play it as 40-lines AND a 1024 any-way, left to right scatter slot!

New Rival – Crap bonuses…?

The latest new Rival casino to go live (on Dec-5th) was Slots Jackpot. Despite having “Slots” in their name it was no surprise to me that their slots welcome bonus is actually very slot-player unfriendly, just like the other casinos from the same RockBet group. By going with a ridiculous WR of (Deposit + Bonus)x30 this new casino joins their other two in the bottom 6 worst Rival bonuses from all 29 Rivals on the net!

 

Their “All Games” bonus is no better; They’re offering 25% to $250 with a WR of (D+B)x30, ALL games count @ 100%, except BlackJack and Video Poker which count 50%. In order to meet WR and cash-out any profit from this one you’d need to get a 99.33% or more return from your total game-play…!

New HUGE welcome bonus with lower WR at 10Bet!

10Bet has been very popular with visitors to my site for over 2 years, and now they are looking to be even more attractive to players because they have increased their welcome bonus FIVE-FOLD!

 

Previously players could only get 100% to €100, it was post wager and they had to wager 100x that on ANY games to get it! 

They have realised that this WR in ridiculous for most games and so have gone to a more standard 100% up to €/£500 pre-wager, cashable with a WR of only (Deposit+Bonus)x21, and disallowed the low HA games Blackjack, Roulette, Video Poker, Baccarat, Poker, Card Wars, Craps & Sic Bo.

10Bet have Keno and 18 unique slots, which include bonus features, expanding wilds and 3 progressives.

More Rival casinos opt-out of the centralized ‘bonus abuse’ system…
As many players have found out, if a Rival casino thinks you have won too much from their bonuses they will pay you and then ban you from receiving any further promotions. (You are NOT banned from playing – you just don’t get bonuses). That’s fair enough, but the problem is nearly all the Rival casinos have a shared data-base of fraud and “bonus abuser” players, so if you get bonus banned at one you are very likely to find you are also banned at all of the others!

 

However, a few casinos made the decision to opt-out of the automatic bonus-banning, and in the last few weeks 3 more casinos have joined them! These are the casinos who have opted-out:

Sloto'Cash, BetUS Casino, Vegas Regal, Slot Power, Vanguard, Simon Says,

Superior, Paradise 8, Cocoa Casino 

 

If you join any other new ones and have this problem – it’s always worth e-mailing the casino manager to have them review your case independently. Please be aware though that ALL Rival casinos will still share info and act on cases of fraud (including players trying to open multiple accounts), so please do yourself and everyone else a favour by sticking to their rules.

32Red now accepting PayPal;

Back in “the good old days” most online casinos accepted this most popular online banking method for deposits & withdrawals. But then new regulations were brought in preventing PayPal from being used for casino transactions and players had to switch to other methods.  However, some UK bookmakers have been able to get around this by accepting PayPal for payments to Sports Books and allowing players to then transfer their funds into their associated casinos.  32Red are the latest group to take this step.

 

Residents of some countries can now use PayPal for; 32Red, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power & Betfair

(Typically OK for UK, SE, NO, FI, PL, GR, IT, PT, ES, and some also take DE, AU & FR)

Kasino King introduces new Bonus Rating System.

Up until now I had rated casino’s Sign-Up Bonuses on my “gut feel” for how good they were, but I was not happy with this so I have now introduced a more formal rating based on a formula involving various aspects of each SUB offer. As most SUBs these days only count slots at 100%, the calculation works out your expected loss while playing on 95% return slots (the industry average).

If the rating is over 5.0 the bonus is +EV, i.e. you would make a profit if you achieved a 95% return.

If the rating is below 3.6 you would bust out before completing WR, again if you got 95%.

 

You will see some bonuses are so bad they actually achieve a negative score! (e.g. Phantom bonuses).

Now this rating is NOT terribly scientific because there are so many factors it is not possible to take into account, like games with higher or lower return %, variance and play on games other than slots. But all casinos on this site went through the same calculation, so it is a direct comparison of sorts which gives a rough guide as to who has good & bad sign-up bonuses. Follow-on bonuses are not rated.

You will find the ratings in the “SUB rate” column of my main casino info pages – links at top of this page.

It’s been & gone!

(GREAT tourney!)

Exclusive $200 pot added tourney at PKR!

Put this date in your diary: Wednesday January 20th at 9pm GMT.

I have arranged a private pot-added NL Texas exclusively for visitors to my site and readers of a forum I help to moderate.

I put in $100 of my own money and those very nice people at PKR matched it $ for $!

There is a $10 buy-in*, so we only need 20 players, for example, to make it a $400 pot!

To enter, you need to click here, download and register a player account.

(If you already have an account at PKR, e-mail me your alias and I will arrange for you to be included; KK@KasinoKing.co.uk)

 

The password for this event is wicked

 

It is called Tournament #KKUK and is located in Scheduled Tournaments – Private.

Come and join the fun!

(*$10 + a $1 fee = $11 total).

http://ads.pkr.com/renderImage.aspx?pid=118503&bid=2933

Get 100% to $800!

 

PKR is THE future of online gaming; using state of the art programming, the graphics content of their poker rooms will blow your mind! The quality is akin to Xbox360 standard and you can customise almost every feature of your player – even down to having 5 different mood settings!

One word of caution: Because of the extremely high quality, the program is much bigger than normal poker sites (900Mb), so you need to allow at least 30-60 minutes to download. Best to leave it downloading in the background while you do something else – I promise you it IS worth the wait!

PKR also have a Playtech Casino, offering you a 100% up to $200 welcome bonus! See here.

Are Rival casinos going to take over the (online) world?
It certainly seems like it to me. This year the total number of Rival casinos has nearly doubled!
By reckoning, new Rivals per year:-
2006 = 5, 2007 = 4, 2008 = 6, 2009 = 12 already, and it's not the end of the year yet!

We’ve seen SIX new ones in the last 2 months alone – to see who, click here.
At this rate I reckon it’s a fair bet they will double again next year, and by 2011 they will be threatening MGs dominance of the market.


Not a bad thing at all IMHO - certainly better than RTG, because at least there are no rogue Rivals!

I suppose I shouldn’t really be surprised either - Rival casinos really do have a lot to offer the online gambler; from slick software with new & innovative games being continually released, ease of banking, centralized 24/7 Live Chat Support, to simple to understand bonuses terms with the most important details being displayed where you want them – in the actual cashier screen where you deposit!

 

Update: I told you so – yet another new Rival just opened; Box24.  World domination here we come!

New casino launches with “slightly insane” free-chip offer!

October has seen yet another 2 Rival casinos open up, and one of them, Tradition Casino, has the most bizarre free-chip offer I have ever seen!  They are giving players €/£/$1,919 free, no deposit, no risk to try their casino.  But there is a catch – you need to complete the Bx200 WR in 24 hours. That’s $383,800! Someone worked out that at $20 spins you’d have to play continuously for 19 hours!!! 

This is a totally useless promotion which is no better than free-play, except you are able to use auto-play which is disabled in free-play mode.

 

However, the casino does have a very unique “old time” feel to it which I really like, right down to the website & casino lobby being in Black & White!   And they do have some other bonus offers which are both sensible & generous, e.g. $30 free, no risk, with a $150 max cash-out, and a 200% bonus up to $1,600 with only (D+B)x17 WR. This gives Tradition Casino the 2nd best SUB of all 26 Rival casinos!

Maybe the 1,919 free was just a publicity stunt – if so, it worked! J

 

The other new Rival is Tropica Casino, with a Caribbean theme.  They offer new players a $10 free chip with $100 max cash-out, a 300% Slots bonus, a 50% Table Games bonus, plus many more…

Rival with “Worst Sign-up” admits it was a cock-up!

Last month I reported how new Rival casino Royal Apollo launched with the worst sign-up bonus I have ever seen in my life! The cashier said it was (D+B)x80. However, the casino manager saw my website and realised they had seriously dropped off – it was supposed to be only (D+B)x20 = 4 times better!

They have now corrected this error, but the bonus is still Phantom, so this change only brings them up from dead last to 15th in my ranking of best bonuses at 24 Rival casinos. (See this page).

The honour of the worst Rival SUB now falls equally to DaVinci’s Gold and Paradise 8 for their Phantom bonuses with crazy high WRs.

Yet more reputable RTG casinos open for business.

I’m delighted to announce that following the new reputable RTGs I already added to this site earlier this year, I have now found another 2 to boost the number of trustworthy casinos who use this ever-popular software. Casino Titan tempts new players with 200% up to $400, while Win Palace offer a HUGE 300% right up to $3,000!  However, be warned that sadly these casinos have chosen to go the Phantom Bonus route, mostly slots only and with very high WRs, so you may op to try them without taking bonuses.

Players should remain aware that a large number of RTGs are still rogues and homework is required before playing at any unknown ones. This website is a rogue-free zone!!

Who cares?

RockBet casino (Rival) ROGUED by Casino Watchdog!  

Rival casinos have always been a little bit “buggy” since their launch in 2006 and there have been a few admin mishaps which have got players concerned, but to my knowledge there has never been any serious mistreatment or “stealing” of player funds from any of the 24 Rival-powered casinos.

So why has RockBet been rogued by CasinoMeister? One word – communication! (Or lack of it!)

A player had £100 go missing from a withdrawal due to a glitch with the automatic bonus handling system. But that s not the issue because the player got his money back in the end. The problem was the casino totally ignored 8 e-mails and a PM from the player, and 5 from the CM representative over nearly a whole month and only responded when the issue was mentioned in a Webcast by CM.

The casino manager has profusely apologised and promised this will never happen again, and so I don’t expect their stay in the “rogue pit” will be a very long one. Therefore I have not removed RockBet from my websites. But I’d like to remind everyone that if you have any similar issues with ANY casino you join after following a link from my site, get in touch with me and I will do my darnedest to get it sorted for you.

(Updated) New Rival casino; multiple cock-ups on launch… L

I had to have a little giggle about the first mistake; the third new Rival casino to launch this month was due to go live on Monday September 14th, but a little faux-pas by the affiliate team meant webmasters were able to grab banners & start advertising it 5 days early!  J

When I first checked out all the details, this is what I wrote for this article:

“The new Vanguard Casino is a “sister” to the popular Slot Power and carries all the great Rival games plus their two totally unique slots which only these two casinos have; Jenny Nevada and Golden Man.

Anyway, now you have the chance to be one of the first to grab their $20 free, no deposit, no risk bonus!

And just look at their welcome bonus! 100% to $500 with WR only (D+B)x12.5 and CASHABLE!!!

This is the best Rival SUB anywhere!!  (Compare that to the ridiculous Royal Apollo one below!)

To visit Vanguard’s website, click hereto just get on with downloading and playing, click here!

But the very next day I found out the WR had DOUBLED to (D+B)x25, and that despite their advertising banners clearly showing the Jenny Nevada slot – they do NOT have it in their casino!!!

This means their SUB is only =10th among all the Rivals – and they wasted HOURS of my time! L

Another big Poker Star launches his own casino & Poker Room;

The latest Poker mega-star to open his own online sites is England’s very own Dave “DevilFish” Ulliott!

Slightly surprisingly they have gone with Net Entertainment software, which means they can not accept American players, but this brand of no-download software is one of the most popular in Europe, so presumably that will be their main target area.

Devilfish Casino offer a welcome bonus of 100% up to €100.

The latest new Rival casino – worst sign-up bonus anywhere?

This is the Rival I referred to below, and just as I had feared they have come out with probably the most diabolically bad welcome insult that I have ever seen – and I’ve seen a LOT of crap in my time!

If you are the luckiest person on the planet you might have a 0.001% chance of meeting the Bonus x 160 WR, phantom bonus and cashing out your deposit, or slightly more… it’s insane!

To see the full details of this, and two other new casinos with sensible bonuses, click here.

Hopefully the owners of (Right) Royal “Shafting” Apollo will see just how ridiculous their SUB is compared to the “Industry Standard” Bonus x 30 and cashable, as offered by over 80 Microgaming casinos, and they will change it. Only time will tell…

KasinoKing persuades new Rival to dramatically lower their WR!

When the newest Rival casino Ruby Royal launched a few weeks back their Sign-up bonus had a crazy WR of (Deposit+Bonus) x25 playable on slots only and it was Phantom. This meant that if you deposited $500 for the maximum 100% bonus, and started playing with $1,000 you would have to wager $25,000 without your balance being lower at the end just to break even; i.e. you’d have to get a return of 100% or more from slots with an average return of 96%...!

Following several e-mails I wrote to them pointing out the mathematics of their offer, they agreed it was too severe and reduced the wagering to only (D+B) x15. This is MUCH better, but sadly the bonus does remain Phantom making it only the 17th best welcome bonus offer from the 21 Rival casinos listed on this site. (See all 21, sorted from best to worst bonuses here!)

I will keep up the pressure to try to get them to make their bonuses cashable like the vast majority of other Rival casinos, in the meantime Ruby Royal do still have an $11 free-chip no deposit, NO risk! J

Glitch delays the release of Rival’s newest iSlot;

The latest addition to Rivals increasing slots portfolio, Spy Game was due to be released on Monday August 10th, but a last minute glitch delayed the release by 7 days. Rival have an unfortunate history of releasing games with stupid errors in the game rules, and occasionally problems with the actual slot mechanics or paytables as well. At least this time they seem to have made sure they got this one right before letting the eager players loose on it!

I’ve given it the once-over and everything seems to be A-OK. My only complaint is in the 600 spins I played it was tediously dull and I didn’t even manage to get the bonus feature from my 2 sets of free-spins. Hopefully I was just unlucky and this slot will have more to offer than I experienced.

If you’ve not already joined a Rival casino, you can try this new game for free or real money at these places (the best Rivals with the most generous bonuses!):- Pantasia, Sloto'Cash, Slot Power, Vegas Sky

Good news – more reputable RTG casinos open for business.

For as long as I can remember RTG powered casinos have been plagued by far too many rogue operators, but in recent times we have seen more and more totally reputable ones opening up.

This is very good news for players who like this particular brand of software – the second most popular on the net. In the last few weeks 3 new RTG casinos have appeared; Grande Vegas, BuzzLuck & Lucky Red.   All are good, but for me personally BuzzLuck stands out from the crowd. Although very new, they seem to have an excellent attitude to customer fairness & satisfaction. On top of that, they are one of very few RTGs to have cashable bonuses and they also have a “Live Lounge” where you can chat to other players or support staff while you play! 

Players should remain aware that a large number of RTGs are still rogues and homework is required before playing at any unknown ones, but hopefully the new & existing reputable places will eventually drive the crooks out of business.

Old news!

Intertops Microgaming casino to close August 31st.

This has been expected for some time – and now it’s official. Intertops is one of the oldest and most respected online betting & gaming companies with one of the first online casinos which went live in 1996. However they were unfortunately forced out of their biggest market, the USA, when Microgaming decided that none of their casinos could operate there from December 2008.  So Intertops made the brave decision to switch to RTG software which does not have any country restrictions. There is a risk they may lose players in other countries, but at least their faithful members from the US will be able to continue to enjoy their first class gaming services.

No new deposits will be accepted at the MG casino after August 4th and they close down August 31st.

Their new casino is called Intertops Red and they offer a very attractive sign-up offer for new players of 100% up to $100, and for existing players (or second deposit) 100% up to $200! 

Wagering Requirements are (D+B)x30 with some card games allowed at 100% (PaiGow, Let em Ride, Red Dog and Rummy), and the bonus is Cashable! (Not Phantom like most RTGs).

No-one wants £100 free…! (?)

UK Amusement Arcade slots come to the internet – at last! 

After many years, the waiting is over! I have no idea why it has taken so long, but finally SkyVegas have done deals with Barcrest, Astra and Bell Fruit to bring the most popular arcade slots to a PC near you. Classics like Cashino, Reel King, Elvis Top 20 & Bullion Bars are now just a mouse-click away! These slots look & play exactly the same, but with one major difference - you can bet whatever you like; select from 1 to 20 winlines and stake from as little as 1p right up to £25 per line! 

In addition, they also have Deal or no Deal, some Cryptologic slots and all the great WagerWorks Vegas slots like Wolf Run, Elvis Multistrike, Texas Tea & many many more.

Update:

Added in June = Rainbow Riches.  Added in July = Spiderman! Fantastic 4, Bejeweled + more!

SkyVegas is part of Sky – the supplier of satellite TV to the whole of the UK.

Duff info – false story.

WagerWorks / IGT Vegas slots now available in Canada & Australia… or are they?? 

I was checking for restricted countries at the new SkyVegas Casino featured in the article above, and I asked Live Chat if Canadians & Australians can play there. The answer was categorically, definitely YES! 

This surprised me greatly because no other WagerWorks casino offers their services to those countries. 

I can only assume it is because SkyV is not actually a WagerWorks casino per se, but just that they have licensed copies of all their games, along with other slots from 6-7 other software providers (see below).

Update June-7th: A couple of Australian players have contacted me to say the WagerWorks games are NOT available them… which means I was given duff information by CS L

However, there are still plenty of other games for them to play from 5-6 other software providers.

Long-awaited launch of new Crypto casino. 

To be honest I’m not really sure what the point is of Intercasino launching this new sister casino which they have been talking about for many months – but here it is. ParBet Casino is basically just a clone of Inter, same games, same bonuses, everything.

The only difference I can spot is their website is also available in Swedish & Finnish, and the bonuses are post-wager. Whether this will put players off from signing up only time will tell…

Sudden name change for popular casino! 

One of the most popular online casinos Absolute Slots suddenly changed their name mid-April to Slot Power Casino. This was blamed on a dispute over the original domain name between the casino owners and the marketing company. Some people are worried about the implications of this dispute, but the casino owners have assured everyone that it’s business as usual and players will not be affected in any negative way.

As they come under the Rival ‘umbrella’, I’m sure they will be OK – there has never been a rogue Rival casino and new players are sure to still be attracted by their 2 unique & very good slots; Golden Man + Jenny Nevada and the Diamond Temple.

Slot Power have keep the same bonus offers; $/£10 no-deposit risk free, and up to $/£1,300 in welcome bonuses. I also noticed they have removed the unjust double wagering for UK players!

Who cares?

Yet another new Rival casino (with crap bonuses) – so what?  There was a time not so very long ago that I would be really excited at the announcement of a new Rival casino. But not any more since they decided bonuses which give players any chance of cashing out are bad for business. L

So here we have the latest clone Fortune Reel – launched May 2009. Not only are their bonuses poor, they don’t even seem to know what they are themselves!

On the website is says new players can get a slots bonus of 100% to $100 with WR (D+B)x30 (That’s TWICE as much as most other casinos on the net), but in the cashier it says it’s 100% up to $600 with WR a crazy (D+B)x50!!

Or players can opt for a 50% to $50 All Games bonus (except progressives) WR again well above the industry standard at (D+B)x50, and to make it even worse it’s Phantom!

Also on the website it says players get $10 free… no sign of that in the cashier…? (Might be no UK)

The only good point is their site is very slick & there’s great music in the casino, so if you like to play without the millstone of a bonus this place could be for you! Check it out here.

Who cares 2 ?

Will this new MG bring you casino rewards?  The biggest MG group on the net launched its 19th casino on April 17th. I guess someone at the Casino Rewards Group thought this was rather amusing; last year they bought out a set of 6 casinos run by the Casino Action group, and now they’ve called this new one… Casino Action!   (Saved them having to register a new domain!) Their opening offer is $/€/£1,250 free-play for an hour – keep any profit up to 100 chips in the form of a bonus. If you win you’ll need to deposit 40 to claim your winnings; this equates to a 250% welcome bonus which is pretty good in this day & age!  If taking this offer, please read full T&C’s on their website first.

Shock as new Wizard casino switches to Rival! Only 3 months after first opening with brand new Wizard Gaming software, Gold Rock Casino suddenly announced that they had switched to the ever-popular Rival Gaming platform on January 25th.  There had been some criticism of Wizard for launching with slots games only, and those slots were too low in variance to get players excited, but they are in the process of producing new & better slots as well as adding the traditional casino table games. One can only assume that the casino owners weren’t prepared to wait for the upgrade.   Gold Rock are offering a $7 no-risk no-deposit bonus to try them out, followed by 100% up to $100 three times over!

One door closes… another one opens! Same with online casinos really! It’s been a rather depressing few months online, what with Microgaming blocking all new USA players, Cantor software dying and now CryptoLogic seems to be following after 3 more of their casinos announced they were closing down in January 2009 leaving only 3 or 4. But new casinos keep popping up to take their place and we’ve seen quite a few reputable ones open their doors during the same period; Club World added a second to their stable; Aladdin’s Gold offers new players up to $900 in welcome bonuses, another new RTG Jackpot Capital has been getting very good reviews from players, and mid-January saw the launch of yet another new Rival casino; Vegas Regal are tempting new players with a HUGE welcome of 100% to $1,000, and that’s on top of the $12 near mandatory no-deposit, no-risk bonus most Rivals offer!

More casinos target USA players after the MG pull-out: Already running 2 popular RTG casinos, the Rushmore group have added a third aimed specifically at slots players; Slots Oasis offers an enormous 400% bonus worth up to $4,000! We have also just seen the launch of a brand new casino software, again aimed mainly at slots players, in fact All Star Slots & Gold Rock Casino only have slots at the moment – the software is so new they haven’t completed the table games yet!

Rival casinos move in to capture USA players after the MG pull-out: November 10th 2008 will be remembered as a very grim day for USA players as from that date no new accounts were allowed for Americans at MG casinos.  Rival software appear to be moving fast to try to fill the gap left by the web’s most popular casino provider; Brand new Vegas Sky Casino was launched with the biggest ever Rival no deposit, no risk bonus of $38, and existing Lion Slots Casino have also added a similar ND bonus for the first time as well as making their welcome bonuses even more generous than before. There are clear signs that many other Rival casinos will be making similar moves in the very near future, possibly leading to the best ever time for bonus hunters to grab some free cash!  Full list of Rival casinos here.

And another one bites the dust… A shock announcement was made by Cantor Gaming on November 28th – their last two casinos (Cantor & Red Lounge) were closing down with immediate effect. This follows the earlier closing this year of Private & Toon casinos, so I suppose we could have seen it coming.  The reasons for this closure have not been made terribly clear, but it can’t be anything to do with the USA situation since their casinos weren’t available to Americans anyway…

USA citizens lose even more personal freedom! There was a shock announcement from MG in the first week of November; No new accounts for Americans at MG casinos after Nov-9th!  This came as a huge shock to everyone in the online gaming world – even me.

Having kept fairly normal services running for more than 2 years after the UIGEA bill was signed, I wasn’t expecting MG to follow Crypto, Playtech & others out of the US market. Where is all this going to end? Maybe the USA government will start telling their citizens where they can or can not shop, go on holiday, buy a car…? It’s unbelievable.  See my greatly reduced list of USA OK places to join here.

Rival Gaming release their 2nd Progressive Jackpot slot: Following less than 2 months after their first one (Major Moolah), Strike Gold is very similar; again it’s a 3-reel 1-line slot, but this time it’s the max bet is only 2-coins.  The progressive jackpot starts from $5,000 and is won by lining up three Strike Gold symbols when betting 2 coins ($2).

Three brand new Microgaming casinos!  3 new MG casinos have launched recently - all linked to well established European sports betting companies, (and hence they all have ‘Bet’ in their names! J). The strong backing means they should be rock solid and hassle free, but regrettably they can not accept USA players. Europeans will no doubt love their SUB’s of up to $1,000!  More details; click here.

Are we all Slotaholics? Well it certainly seems like it, the rate the software companies are churning them out these days! MicroGaming have given us a break from theirs for a month, but there have been loads from other places recently – and they’re pretty damn good! Apart from the ones mentioned below, we now have the new Rival Gobblers Gold, 3Dice’s Payola, and GV’s Jackhammer Jackpot & Bollywood. (Click on slot names to visit sites for more info). None of these new slots contain the unimaginative 10, J, Q, K, A symbols and all have features capable of paying BIG. Maybe that is the great attraction!

New concept - Multiway® ALL SCATTERS slot at WagerWorks: It’s hard to explain Triple Fortune Dragon briefly, but basically ALL the symbols are scatters which pay left to right. Playing the maximum (only 25 coins) enables all winning positions giving you 243 ways to win with each symbol. Also featuring 15 to 25 free-spins (which can re-trigger up to 360 max) & wilds which substitute for all symbols (including the free-spin trigger) & multiply wins by x3 in free-spins (or x9 if you hit 2). Sounds complicated, but it’s simple once you’ve seen it. Give it a try out at:- Blue Square, Virgin, or Paddy Power.

2 Popular Australian casinos closed without warning: It was announced a few weeks back that AusVegas online casino would close permanently on October 13th, but then out of the blue the directors suddenly announced on Oct-3rd that BOTH AusVegas and sister casino Lasseters would cease trading with immediate effect. This sad news was blamed on the decline in business since the UIGEA bill was passed by George Bush in October 2006, preventing USA players from using these casinos.

New Rival casino for the USA: When new Rival casino Irish Luck launched in July 2008 they were the first Rival to NOT allow players from the USA, but they have now changed their policy on that and their £/€/$333 SUB is bound to be as popular in the states as it was with the rest of the world! You can check out the full details for yourself on their website.

Rival Gaming introduce their first Progressive Jackpot slot: Expected for quite some time – finally it’s here. The new slot, called Major Moolah (who’s name was not inspired by 2 MG progressives – honestly!) is a 3-reel 3-coin 1-line slot. The progressive jackpot starts from $2,500 and is won by lining up three Major Moolah symbols when betting 3 coins ($3). Give it a spin at Slot Power & they will give you a 200% welcome bonus, up to $400!

Kentucky ruling threatens 141 casino domains: The Governor of the state of Kentucky in the USA is attempting to seize the .com domains of 141 popular gaming sites in a further move to try to maximise their monopoly on all gambling in the state. This ill-advised plot is a totally ridiculous waste of time as the casinos will simply move to a different domain beyond the reach of this minority state. The affected domains mostly belong to MG, RTG & Rival casinos, but this action only effects their websites – the casinos themselves will carry on operating as normal. Some casinos have already asked webmasters to update all their links – this might take me some time, so please bear with me!

New Rival casino quickly changes it’s SUB’s: Launched in just July this year, Club Vegas USA have now dumped their 5 different sign-up bonuses to please players of all games, and replaced it with just one bonus of 300% up to $150 (i.e. Deposit $50, get $150 free). At the same time they have introduced a $7 free, no deposit, no risk bonus which has been incredibly popular with players at all the other Rival casinos. No other softwares (that I know of) have similar totally risk-free offers.

Rival expanding – and very fast!  I’ve just discovered yet another new Rival casino! This one is called Slot Power and features not just the standard Rival range (including the new-this-week Baby Boomers slot), but also 2 video slots that are unique to this new casino; Golden Man & Jenny Nevada. These two 20-line slots both feature the ever popular free-spins and a unique bonus picking game.

They also have the best SUB of all the Rivals for non-slots players; All games including Blackjack (except Roulette, Baccarat & Craps) count at 100% in the WR! (I can’t see them doing this for very long…)

Popular casino AusVegas is closing its doors: It has just been announced that AusVegas online casino will close permanently on October 13th.  This sad news is the latest ‘streamlining’ move of many this year.  Any players with money in AusVegas should withdraw it ASAP. There will be no automatic transfer of accounts, but existing customers will be encouraged to join their sister casino Lasseters – established over 9 years & running the same unique software & games - players will notice very little difference.

FIVE new slots at RTG: Added to the ever popular ‘Real Series’; Crazy Vegas, Golden Retriever, Pinocchio, Warlocks Spell & Medal Talley (a little late for the start of the Olympics!). Too early to say how good they are, but if you’re thinking of trying them remember 75% of RTG casinos are rogues – stick only to the reputable places like iNetBet & Club World.

InterCasino revamp their casino lobby: Supposedly an improvement, I think this is a bit of a damp squib. It looks nice, but the main purpose was the addition of a ‘My Intercasino’ button to allow players to quickly view their available bonuses. I was expecting a window to open within the casino itself, but it’s actually just a link to a normal web-page. They have also removed the way of ‘hiding’ the fricking annoying ad banner at the bottom of the screen. L  However, they still have one of the best Monthly Bonuses!
