    Watching progressive jackpots to win

    Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

    Do you play slots online? This is a simple winning strategy that can pay off, but I suspect that it’s easier to handle if you play online than if you play slots at a land based casino. Though if you visit a land based casino often enough, this could work.

    Now first I need to point out that I really don’t believe in slot strategies. Most that I’ve seen require either a limitless bankroll to pay off or seem to be based on some mixture of superstition and urban legends. But there are some simple observations one may make about slot games that can help with a potential win. Keep in mind — the end result is thousands of losers for ever one big winner. But this strategy might move you just a bit closer to the winner range. And it worked for a player at the WinADayCasino who just walked away with a $165,900 progressive jackpot.

    Her strategy? Actually it’s so simple that may be the reason it worked for her. All she did was keep track of her favorite progressive slot game over time and notice when it was most likely to award the jackpot. In this case, she noticed that “Tropical Treat” generally paid out the jackpot soon after it moved over the $150,000 range. So when the slot moved up into that range, she made a point of betting on it in amounts that would qualify her to win the jackpot. And it paid off. She won. But as I pointed out - there were thousands of other players at the same time who didn’t win.

    But this type of slot strategy is a fairly common one for progressive games. Usually the higher the jackpot gets, the more likely a progressive is to pay out. But if you play at an online casino, you can actually track the jackpot for one of your favorite progressive slot games and learn when it is more likely to make one winner a happy winner.

    Monday, February 7th, 2011

    Happy Valentine’s Day! Well, I’m just a big early but Millionaire Casino wants to help you celebrate the day of love with a Slots of Love $25,000 slots tournament. The Slots of Love tournament is already under way and will run through February 18th, so you can jump in and start playing right away.

When else are you going to indulge in a slot game with cupids, candy and roses. And a chance to win a share of the $25,000 prize pool for a low $10 slot tournament buy in fee.

    Yes, you’ll be playing on Cupid’s Arrow slots, a five reel, twenty pay line slot game with a Valentine’s Day theme that includes roses, chocolate and diamond rings.

The gift box is the scatter symbol that will win you 15 free spins on the reels to help boost your winnings without costing you any of your balance. And there is a bonus game when you hit the bonus symbol on reels 2 and 4. The bonus game will present you with a pyramid of gift boxes and each box will award you money.

    Chase away the mid-January blues at Online Vegas

    Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

    So, we’re mid way through January and it’s been a long, harsh winter for many of us. Which means that we’re in the mood for a way to chase away the January blues. And is here to help. This Vegas Technology powered online casino is offering players a chance to take part in the Mid January 20000 Guaranteed Free Roll slots tournament. That’s right, a $20,000 prize pool for a slot tournament that you can play in for free. I love news like that because there’s no way to lose.

    So, what do you need to do to enter? First, you’ll need an account with, but don’t worry, that’s easy enough to do and they do accept players from the United States. Then just go to the tournament lobby and look for the Mid January 20000 Guaranteed and sign up. You’ll be playing on the slot game La Fiesta, and you’ll start out with a $75 starting balance. Rebuys are $6.99 if you run out of coins and the rebuy will give you $250 to play on. The tournament has just started and is already underway. It runs through January 21st so you still have plenty of time to make your way to the leader board.

    And yes, this free roll has a $20,000 prize pool. The first place winner in the tournament will win $3,500. That’s in prize money, not bonus money. Second place wins $1,750 and third place $1.250. The real money winnings continue down to tenth place where one winner takes home $280. But the prizes don’t end there. Players finishing in 11th through 30th place. At 11th place, 1 winner will receive a $250 bonus in their Online Vegas account to play on. But when you get down to 30th place, 500 players will win $2 in bonus money accredited to their account. Now, $2 doesn’t sound like much, but remember, you don’t have to pay anything to enter this slots tournament. So head over to Online Vegas and start playing.

    Frozen Assets at Millionaire Casino

    Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

    It’s January and throughout most of the country, people are freezing their assets off. And if you’re spending more snow days inside than out, you might want to check out the Frozen Assets Tournament over at Millionaire Casino.

    Frozen Assets is a slot tournament running through January 31st and I’m sure we’ll all find plenty of chilly days when we can stay inside and play slots. The sign up fee for this one is $10 and that will start players out with a $250 stake to play on. The prize pool for this one stands at $25,000 with $7,500 of that going to the first place finisher and $5,000 to second place. There are prizes down to 50 winners in 9th place so everyone has a chance to win a prize.

    So, what will you be playing if you have some Frozen Assets this January? How about Beat the Bank. Beat the Bank is a five reel, twenty five line slot game with a bank robbery theme. In the game, you’re the bank robber and you need to take your plans and get past the security guard to break into the safe and steal the diamonds. Got it? (Note: do not try this at your regular bank.) The game has a “Beat the Bank” bonus feature that’s triggered when you get three or more scatter safes on the reels and that feature can really help you boost your odds of winning the slot tournament. You can also win free spins by landing three or more thieves on the reels.

    So head over to Millionaire Casino and try to Beat the Bank and take care of those Frozen Assets.

    The Slottery at SuperSlots Casino

    Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

    SuperSlots online casino is kicking off the New Year with the return of their popular The Slottery slots series of slots tournaments. These are great tournaments for slot players of any level because the buy in is only $5 and they feature some of the most popular slot games around. The prize pool for these tournaments is always made up of “The Pot” which means that the more players there are, the more bigger the prizes that you can win. So, what’s up with The Slottery this month?

    The games kick off with Cleopatra’s Pyramid as The Slottery slot game of choice for January 3rd through January 6th. This is a popular Egyptian themed game that will put you in the mood for treasure and riches. And slight historical inaccuracies since this particular Egyptian queen lived well after the age of pyramid building. (They’d become too popular with ancient tomb raiders. Even queens have to roll with the times.)

    Then January 10th through January 13th things get funky down on the farm with Funky Chicken. This game will amuse any player with its cartoon like graphics, angry farmer and funky chicken. Then January 17th through 20th, we take a trip to Thailand for Bangkok Nights. This game lets player experience exotic nightlife of the exotic city as they spin the reels. And the month comes to a close with Magic Monkey from January 24th through January 27th. This game features a monkey as the wizard who can help you to big winnings.

    And hopefully big winnings are what you’ll find at SuperSlots when you play The Slottery. Remember, each Slottery tournament is only $5 to enter. So join the fun and spin those reels.

    Get spotted at Villento Las Vegas

    Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

    Villento Las Vegas is one of the top online casinos out there and I always make sure to stop by and check out their promotions because they have some of the best on the market. Right now (meaning through Wednesday, December 29th) you can win free spins just for being spotted playing your favorite slots games on the site.

    Yep, all you have to do is spend some time spinning the reels of your favorite game because the folks at Villento will be out looking for fifty lucky players who will win 40 free spins on the Cashanova slot game. And those free spins could bring you some reel money (or real money, I’m in a punny mood).

    But if you’re going to play some slots at Villento Las Vegas to take part in the Get Spotted promotion, why not play the same slots that will earn you loyalty points in the Triple Play - Triple Pay promotion. You’ll need to be a member of the Villento Las Vegas loyalty program at the Silver, Gold or Platinum level to participate in this program. But I recommend joining the loyalty program because well, it’s free and it has rewards. Just join and then play any of the following slots for triple rewards through Wednesday, December 29th — Life’s a Beach, Lucky Shot, Mark of Medusa, No Worries, Rainbows End, Reel Baron, or Scoop the Cash.

    And remember to follow Villento Las Vegas on Facebook so you can keep up on all the bonus offers. Because they want to keep you playing with them.

    Silver Oak Slot Crazy December slot tournaments

    Monday, December 6th, 2010

    Silver Oak has decided to celebrate the holidays with two fantastic slot tournaments and they are inviting all of us to join in the fun. So, have you been naughty or nice this year? Because that’s one of the slot games you could be playing. Let’s take a look at the tournaments. Or perhaps the level of information Silver Oak is giving out on the tournaments, because they’ve been naughty about providing full details.

    One of the games you can play in the Crazy December slot tournaments is Naughty or Nice slots. This is a vaguely holiday themed slot and the buy in is just $5. The prize is $2512. I’m assuming that is a total prize pool and not a single prize. The tournament runs — umm, sometime during December. I’m on Silver Oaks full details page but it seems to be a bit scanty on details (much like the outfit Miss Naughty is wearing on that slot game).

    The other slot tournament Silver Oak is running during the December time frame (as a general reference point) is Texan Tycoon. This one has a $9 buy in and a prize of $9,999. That may be a grand prize. That may be the total prize. And I’m not sure how long you have to play Texan Tycoon if you sign up for the tournament.

    Silver Oak is offering up to $10,000 in bonus money on your first ten deposits if you sign up for an account. And they offer both a download version of their software and a limit practice play web option. But they are open to US players. That, like Silver Oaks tournament details, is becoming harder and harder to find.

    Holiday Bonuses at Casinos

    Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

    It’s that time of year again - the holidays. And winter. Now online casinos know that online gambling increases during the winter. After all, people are likely to spend more time inside trying to escape the cold weather. And they want to encourage us to spend plenty of time on their sites. So for online casinos the holiday season is a reason to offer some of the best bonuses that they can. And for players, it’s a great time to take advantage of bonus money. But it’s also a time to keep track of your bank account and your bank roll.

    Okay, let’s be realistic, you aren’t going to win a ton of shopping money between now and Christmas no matter which bonus offer you take advantage of, so you need to work the bonuses in with the Christmas budget. Frankly, count them as an expenditure. Money out, not money in. Now, this doesn’t mean you may not make money from your bonus money, but you aren’t likely to make your play through and win money back before Christmas - and get your shopping done.

    So, shop the online casino bonus offers carefully. Here’s what I do. First I check the games available on the site. Do they have slot games that I love and want to play? Because most of the offers require play through on slot games, so it makes sense to make sure they have games I love. Also, I’m careful not to be tempted to deposit more than I should just to get a bigger bonus. Oh, it can be tempting to think - well, I’ll double my deposit so if I deposit $1,000, I’ll get $2,000. But can you afford that $1,000? Perhaps it’s safer to deposit $100 and get $200. Just remember to gamble wisely.

    Queen of the pyramids progressive slot

    Monday, November 29th, 2010

    There are some games out there that you only play for the progressive jackpot and this Playtech slot game is one of them. Oh, it’s not the slot action that’s the problem. This is a basic nine line, five reel slot game and when you spin the reels, the symbols either line up for the win or they don’t. Just like in any other slot game. But these days, there’s a lot of competition for my slot playing attention and a lot of games with great artwork competing for my attention. I like great artwork. And unfortunately this game doesn’t do it. Maybe it’s the unicorn.

    The game is Queen of the Pyramids. So, what’s a unicorn doing in Queen of the Pyramids? I have no idea. The slot game doesn’t have the best graphics and I wonder if a couple might have been recycled from other games. “Hey, Fred, we’ve still got that unicorn we didn’t use. What you say we add it to the game.” Okay, there are a few standard Egyptian symbols. There are pyramids, the Sphinx, The Eye of Horus, and lotus flowers. The scorpion will win you free spins. Not a bad sting there. The pharaoh is the wild symbol and the jackpot symbol.

    And there’s the unicorn symbol that must have wandered in from another game. But if you do hit the unicorn, it will launch a bonus game with a five times multiplier. Now, I’m all in favor of multipliers, but couldn’t they have invested a little time and energy into coming up with an Egyptian symbol?
