Jingle SpinSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, Ocean, Pala

Celebrate the holiday season with NetEnt’s newest game: Jingle Spin. The latest slot title to hit NJ online casinos, this happy little game has some adorable elves, a different holiday soundtrack, and some super cool features.

The game itself has 5 reels and 20 paylines, with bets that can range from 20 cents up to $200. Base symbols include an array of ornaments (5), plus the 10 through Ace. Bonus symbols include the Wild (a gift-wrapped present). The Wild can appear on any reel.

The game window contains your reelset, with a small elf above each reel, and a large elf on the right who is in charge of a spinning prize wheel that contains a variety of prizes called Baubles.

The games pays out for line wins of 3 or more, landing a Bauble on a reel with a Wild, and during any Free Spins Bonus rounds.

The Wild Bauble feature is separate from any line win you get. It occurs in both the main game and in your Free Spins Bonus round. During each spin the elf on the right side makes quite a concerted effort to set the wheel spinning. On the wheel are:

  • Prize Baubles
  • Free Spin Baubles
  • Spreading Wild Baubles
  • Surprise Baubles
  • Blank Spaces

If the elf lands the spinner on a prize amount, he tosses it up to the elf above reel 5. If there is a Wild on reel 5, you’re paid the amount. If not, he tosses the prize bauble to the elf on his left on the next spin. Again, if the Wild occurs on that reel, you win the payout. This continues all the way to reel 1. So, you have 5 chances to win the prize amount.

If the spinner lands on a number with arrows (7 to 50), that represents the number of free spins that are available, should you land a Wild on the reel of the elf holding the bauble. It works the same as the prize amount. The Spreading Wild Bauble is activated when it lands on a Wild in the same reel. It will then expand the Wild to the whole reel.

The Surprise Bauble contains either a prize, free spins, or a Spreading Wild. The prize is revealed and it bounces from elf to elf until you get a corresponding Wild or until the elf on reel 1 tosses it away. Best of all, you can have multiple Baubles at the same time. I often found myself with two or three elves lobbing these little orbs around (which is fun to watch).

This game will definitely make your holiday season much more cheerful and bright, even if you don’t win! But it does have a nice RTP of 96.48%, which is on the high side these days and makes it a good choice to test out.

ConanSlotsGolden Nugget, BetAmerica, Pala, Tropicana, Virgin

This week’s newest slot entry at NJ online casinos takes us into the world of the barbarians, with NetEnt’s Conan. Conan is a 6 reel, 24 payline game that pays both ways—left to right and right to left. Bets start at a very modest 20 cents and go up to $200. The game has multiple bonus symbols and three free spin bonus features, making it a bit more interesting to play.

Base symbols include Conan, Evil Wizard, Warrior Princess, helmet, sword, grappling hook, gold lion, silver snake, and bronze eagle. Bonus symbols include the Tower Wild (skull with blue eyes), Battle Wild (skull with red eyes), Mystery Snake Symbol, and the Scatter symbol.

Both Wilds substitute for all base symbols. The Tower Wild appears on reels 1 and 2 only and can expand randomly. Battle Wilds appear on reels 5 and 6 only and can expand up to 3 positions sideways to adjacent reels.

The Mystery Symbol appears on reels 3 and 4 only during the base game and will transform into a base symbol. These Mystery Symbols can also come stacked, and should they stack to cover a whole reel, they will activate the Mystery Multiplier (3x to 7x). If you land a full stacked Mystery Symbol reel with one of the Wild symbols, you will trigger the Thoth-Amon feature. With the Thon-Amon feature, up to 6 Mystery Symbols are randomly added to reels 2 through 5.

To get to the free spins bonus feature, you will need three or more Scatter symbols landing anywhere on the 6 reels. There are three different free spins options:

  • City of Thieves Free Spins: All Tower Wilds can expand up and/or down to cover reels.
  • Temple of the Serpent Free Spins: Mystery Symbols can appear on all 6 reels and a fully stacked Mystery Symbol will activate the Mystery Multiplier. You can also activate the Thoth-Amon feature by landing 5-9 of the symbols. No Wilds are found in this bonus.
  • Walls of Tarantia Free Spins: Battle Wilds can appear on all reels and expand up to 3 positions sideways.

The maximum jackpot on Conan is $250,000 and the return to player percentage is a generous 96.65%.

Tiger 7sSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse
Double WolfSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse

This week we have two new games from Everi making their way onto NJ online casinos. Both games are old-school style slots with 3 reels and no bonus games, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth your time. In fact, it might be fun to sit down with your parents, or grandparents, over the Thanksgiving holiday and let them have a little fun on a slot that will be reminiscent of games they used to play in the rick-and-mortar casinos.

First up is Tiger 7s, a tiger-themed game with 5 paylines. Bets range from 25 cents to $250 and it has a return-to-player percentage of 96%, not to mention a max jackpot of $502,000. Both the RTP and the jackpot are on the high end of things these days, which is why we think the game is worth a go.

Symbols include a Bar, Bar 5, Black 7, White Stripe 7, Gold Stripe 7, and Double Jackpot Wilds. The Double Jackpot Wilds will double your winning payline(s) and if you manage to spin two Double Jackpot symbols, the game pays out 4x.

Wins are achieved by landing any 3 symbols on a payline, as does any combination of three Bars or three 7s. Big payouts come when you hit 3 Double Jackpot symbols on a payline. Get it on lines 1-4 and it pays 2,000x your bet, while landing this combination on line 5 gets you 10,000x.

Next up is Double Wolf. This wolf-themed slot has 9 paylines, as well as a 96% RTP and a max jackpot of $506,500. Again, both figures are significant when playing any slot. Symbols in this game include single and double Bars, a Black 7, White 77, and Red 777. You’ll also find Black Wolf Wild Jackpot and White Wolf Wild 2x Jackpot symbols.

Any three Bars pays out, as does any combination of three 7s. Three of any symbol will also pay out. The White Wolf and Black Wolf Wild symbols will substitute for any symbol on a payline. The Black Wolf Wild pays out at 1x, while one White Wolf Wild pays 2x and two White Wolf Wilds pay 4x.

For a retro experience, these two games are a good bet to test out.

Cash-O-MaticSlotsGolden Nugget, BetAmerica, Hard Rock, Mohegan Sun, Pala, Resorts

New to NJ online casinos this week is Cash-o-Matic, a unique game featuring a screen that holds not only the 5 reels, but also a Multiplier Meter and a Free Spins Counter. The symbols, which are fairly rudimentary in nature, are comprised of 10-Ace, plus 5 gems. There is also a Scatter Gem, which will help you reach the Free Spins Bonus. Alas, there is no Wild. Bets range from 20 cents to $100

The game play involves a reverse Tumbling Reels feature called Nudging Avalanche. When you match 3 or more symbols on a payline (of which there are 1,024), they drop to the bottom of the reels and all other symbols disappear. New symbols avalanche down, and any of the same winning symbols are kept, and the process repeats until there no more matching symbols avalanche down.

If you manage to fill up one row, you get a 1x multiplier; completely fill a second row and get 2x…and so on for all 4 rows. This feature is called a Level Multiplier, and it can significantly increase your end win. The Multiplier Meter on the left of the screen keeps the tally for you as the Avalanche is happening.

There is also a Free Spins Bonus, which requires a minimum of 10 Scatter symbols to be triggered. This works a bit differently than regular wins, in that the Scatter symbols drop off and land in the Free Spins Counter on the left. They can be replaced by regular symbols or more Scatter symbols. The more Scatters, the more free spins you’ll receive.

In addition, the Multiplier you get during this round is dependent on the number of Scatter symbols that triggered it in the first place. For instance, if you get 12 Scatter symbols, you would get 2x if you fill the bottom line on the reels, 3x for both the first and second lines, 8x when the third line is filled and 20x when the top line is filled.

Given all the features and the fact that the return-to-player ratio is 96.33%, Cash-o-Matic is definitely worth a go.

Triple ThreatSlotsGolden Nugget
Triple Da Vinci DiamondsSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts,

Earlier this week, we talked about the debut of all the new Everi double slots at Nj online casinos (see post below on November 13). Now it’s time to go big, with two new triple games: Triple Threat and Triple Double Da Vinci Diamonds. Are either worth your time? Let’s find out.

Triple Threat, like all our double-themed games, is also by Everi. It features 3 reels with 9 paylines, with bets ranging from 90 cents to $360. The game features single bars, double bars, single black 7s, double silver 7s and triple gold 7s, as well as a Triple Threat Wild. Payouts are based on three matching symbols on one of the 9 paylines. It can be any 3 bars or any three 7s, or any combination of those along with Triple Threat Wilds. The Wilds pay out for 3 scattered anywhere on the reels as well as on paylines. The biggest win occurs when you get 3 Triple Threat Wilds on Line 1, which pays out 10,000x.

You won’t find any bonus games or special features on this slot. It’s more of an old school slot n that respect. But, the return-to-player ratio on Triple Threat is 96% and the max jackpot is $400,000.

Moving on to Triple Double Da Vinci Diamonds, we find a game that pumps up the volume of its predecessor, Double Da Vinci Diamonds. You still have the base 5 reels and 40 paylines, with bets ranging from 50 cents to $200, but with this new version, there is a unique new feature, called Spin-crease.

Your base symbols include famous portraits, like the Mona Lisa, as well as a variety of jewels. Bonus symbols include a Da Vinci Diamond Wild and a Free Games Scatter. The game features Tumbling Reels, meaning when you have a winning payline, the winning symbols disappear and more tumble down from above, making for multiple payouts on one bet.

To trigger the Free Games Bonus, you’ll need to get 3 Free Games symbols on the first 3 reels, although they can be in any position. You’ll get 10 free spins and the bonus is not retriggerable.

Now for the new Spin-crease feature. Along the left side of the reels is the Spin-crease meter. The more you bet, the higher it reaches the top. Once it does so, it unlocks new symbols. These symbols are the same 3 portrait symbols used initially, but they are now double. Two images within one frame. They count as 2 symbols, making it easier to get a win and to get bigger wins. Once you’ve activated all 3 double symbols, you can use the Spin-crease meter to unlock triple symbols.

With Triple Double Da Vinci Diamonds, the return-to-player ratio is a whopping 97% and the max jackpot is $462,000.

Double JackpotSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse
Double LeopardSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse
Double LotusSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse
Double RubySlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse

It’s time to double up at NJ online casinos with a quartet of new games available. The recent debut of four Everi Interactive games brings a little bit of nostalgia with it, as each one of these games are played on 3 reels, with symbols reminiscent of early slots. Your latest choices of play are:

  • Double Jackpot
  • Double Leopard
  • Double Lotus
  • Double Ruby

First up is Double Jackpot, with 5 paylines on its 3 reels. Bets here range from 25 cents to $250 and the max payout is $502,000. Featured symbols include red and white bars, red/white/black 7s, and a Double Jackpot symbol, which is Wild. Payouts occur when you match any 3 symbols, 2 symbols + 1 Wild, or 1 symbol + 2 Wilds. Of course, the optimum win here is 3 Wilds Double Jackpots on Line 1, which pays 10,000x.

Our second of four new games is Double Leopard, which has 9 lines on the 3 reels. Bets here range from 90 cents to $450, with a max payout of $500,000. Symbols here consist of single and double bars, single/double/triple 7s, and a Double Leopard symbol that is your Wild. Payouts occur for any three bars, any combination of three 7s, as well as 3 of a kind. Any two like symbols with a Wild or any single symbol with two Wilds also pay. Three Double Leopard symbols is your highest payout at 10,000x.

Double Lotus is our third new slot and has the same number of paylines and bets as Double Leopard. It also has the same symbols, although featuring an Asian twist. The bar symbols are in a font reminiscent of other games featuring a Chinese or Japanese theme, while the 7s have a background print that looks very much like a fan. Your Wild symbol is the Lotus, which pays 2x.

Finally, we have Double Ruby. This last entry has the same 3 reels and 9 paylines as games two and three above, as well as the same bets (90 cents to $450). Max payout is also $500,000. It features single and double bars, single silver 7s, double gold 7s, and ruby triple 7s, as well as the Double Ruby Wild. Payouts mimic the other three games.

You won’t find any bonus features with these four games. There are no Free Games Bonus, no free spins, no Tumbling Symbols. These are standard, old-school style slots featuring the basics. There is, however, a return-to-player percentage of 96%, which is what we like to see. While, you’ll still find games in the 94% and 95% range, players have come to expect a higher RTP, and game makers and NJ online casinos are obliging.

ScarabSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

The latest game from IGT to debut on NJ online casinos is Scarab, a Cleopatra-themed game with an unusual Scarab feature that can produce some very lucrative wins. There are 5 reels with 75 paylines, and bets range from 75 cent up to $375, making it a good option for players of all levels and bankrolls.

Base symbols in this game include Cleopatra (which is often an Expanded Symbol), along with game pieces resembling Cleopatra, Horus, Anubis, Maahes, Ankh, and the Eye of Horus. You’ll also find the 10-Ace, making for a whole lotta symbols, all of which can come as Stacked Symbols. Bonus symbols include the Scarab, Wild, and Bonus symbols.

Now for the cool Scarab feature called Wild Stays Charges Then Pays. Your spins are numbered 1-10. During the first 9 spins, any time you get a Scarab, it is locked into a gold frame for use on Spin #10. Those gold-framed positions are then used for regular base symbols on subsequent spins. You’ll collect the Scarab gold frames up until Spin #10, when all the gold-framed positions turn Wild. That’s when the payday can really bring you a hefty reward. Meanwhile, spins 1-9 will pay as they normally would, which means this feature is a bonus pay. After Spin #10 ends and pays out, the counter resets to 1 and you start again.

The Bonus Scatter symbols will trigger the Free Spins Bonus Game. The number of Bonus Scatters you get will determine the number of spins and the number of Random Wilds you will get:

  • Three Bonus Scatters will get you either 15 spins with 5 Wilds, 10 spins with 7 Wilds or 5 spins with 10 Wilds
  • Four Bonus Scatters will get you either 30 spins with 5 Wilds, 20 spins with 7 Wilds or 10 spins with 10 Wilds
  • Five Bonus Scatters will get you either 55 spins with 5 Wilds, 30 spins with 7 Wilds or 15 spins with 10 Wilds

The Free Spins Bonus can be retriggered with 3 or more Bonus Scatters.

Scarab comes with a 95% return-to-player percentage and a $300,000 max jackpot.

Legends of Troy II: Achilles GlorySlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

One of the greatest Greek warriors of the Trojan War takes center stage in the latest High 5 Game, Legends of Troy II: Achilles Glory. This brand new slot features 5 reels and 1,024 possible paylines. Add to that a 96% return-to-player percentage and you have a pretty good combination for increasing your bankroll. Not to mention a very Hemsworth-looking Achilles that can provide some monster wins.

In this slot, your base symbols include a helmet, sword & shield, ship, Ace, and 4 Greek letters. Bonus symbols include your Achilles Wild and a Trojan Horse Scatter. The Achilles Wild, which appears only on reels 2/3/4/5, always has a credit value. So in addition to helping you create a winning payline with its own value, you get the value that appears on Achilles. This value ranges from 40 to 4,000, and I found that Achilles often appears in multiples, making for some fantastic payouts. Even better, the Achilles Wild pays out even if it doesn’t form a winning payline!

The Trojan Horse Scatter will trigger the Free Games Bonus, once you get 3 or more in any position on the reels. The number of free spins is determined by the number of Scatter symbols you get:

  • 7 free games with three Scatters
  • 15 free games for four Scatters
  • 30 free games for five Scatters

Unfortunately, the Free Games Bonus cannot be retriggered.

Bets on this game range from 80 cents to $160, with a maximum payout a bit on the low end at $190,250.

Five PiratesSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, Hard Rock, Mohegan Sun, Ocean, Resorts, SugarHouse

Hit the high seas aboard a pirate ship filled with gold in the newest NJ online casino game. Five Pirates, a product of Lightning Box Games, is a 5-reel/4 row slot with 1,024 paylines with betting options from 50 cents all the way up to $350.

Base symbols include the pirate ship, monkey, bird, map and cannon. There’s also a 9 through Ace. Bonus symbols include the Pirate Wild and Skull and Sword Scatter. The Wild appears on reels 2 and 4, while the Scatter appears on all reels. Wins pay from left to right and for larger wins, the ship’s candles rock, as though a big wave had hit your ship. Several of the symbols pay out for just 2, which is a nice change of pace.

Get 2 or more t consecutively starting on the first reel and the Hold N Spin feature kicks in. It will hold all Scatter symbols and respin 3 times. Each time you add another scatter symbol—anywhere on the remaining reels—your 3 spins are reset. Get all 5 reels with the Scatter symbol to head to the Barrel Bonus.

First you’ll choose which game you want to play for. There are 5 options:

  • Up to 7 games up to 15x
  • Up to 9 games up to 105x
  • Up to 11 games up to 8x
  • Up to 13 games up to 6x
  • Up to 15 games up to 5x

Once you make your choice a stack of barrels will appear. Pick one on the bottom row and if a green arrow appears, you move up, adding another spin and multiplier. Keep picking until you it the red X. At that point, you’ll get a payout and move on to the Free Spins round with the number of spins and multiplier that appear next to that row of barrels.

This game appears to pay out frequently (with an RTP of 95.49%) and if you choose wisely of your 5 options during the bonus round, you can rack up some hefty booty, like a good pirate is wont to do.

Halloween JackSlotsBetfair, Golden Nugget, Hard Rock, Mohegan Sun, Ocean, Resorts

Just in time for Halloween is the latest NetEnt slot to hit NJ online casinos: Halloween Jack. This superb creation captures the holiday perfectly, with a dark setting with creeping vines, flying bats, and burning jack-o-lanterns. The ominous music adds an air of authenticity.

Your base symbols are somewhat typical to the holiday, a black crow, vampire bat, horseshoe, riderless stallion, and a very dark and creepy young girl. All that’s missing is a black cat! You’ll also find a 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace, all held by a pair of dismembered arms adding an extra creep factor.

Bonus symbols include the Walking Wild Jack-o-lantern and the Jewelry Box Scatter. The Walking Wild is found on reels 2-5. Each time it lands, you will get a respin, with the Wild walking left one space. After the final Wild lands on the first reel and drops off, you’ll get one more free spin. All wins with the Walking Wild pay at 3x. Even better, you can get multiple Walking Wilds on a spin, making for even bigger and better wins.

You will need 3 or more Jewelry Box Scatter symbols to trigger the Free Spins round. You’ll get 10 free spins to start, and you can accrue 5 more each time you get 3 or more Scatters during this bonus round.

During the Free Spins round, a glowing lantern showing up on reel 5 will unlock the Jack O’Lector. This feature had 3 bonus items:

  • Collect 3 lanterns to get a Stacked Hell Hound Wild
  • Collet 6 lanterns to get a Stacked Jack-o-lantern Wild
  • Collect 9 lanterns to get an Expanding Death Reaper Wild

Needless to say, these bonus features can really amp up your win. And each of these additional Wilds are Walking Wilds, where the respins don’t count against your 10 free spins.

So get in the spirit of the holiday and give this game a go.

Grand SpinnSlotsGolden Nugget, Hard Rock, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

One of the newest slots to hit NJ online casinos, combines some old school reels with an updated twist. Grand Spinn, a recent entry from NetEnt Gaming, has only three reels and one payline, with fruits, 7s and bars as your symbols. Your grandmother will probably remember dropping nickels into just such a machine back in the day. But what she didn’t get was a Nudge feature that activates on winning paylines. Let me explain….

The reel itself is 3 rows high and 3 reels wide, with only the center actually paying out on wins. But once you get that first win, there is the potential for many more to come due to the Nudge feature. After your first win, if there is a matching symbol above on the first line of the reel, it drops down and pays. The first reel continues to drop down until no more wins can be had. Then the second reel kicks in, then the third. Should you run into an arrow along the way, it will reverse the symbols on that reel so that they pay again. It will become blank as it takes its place back on the reel. Blanks do not match or pay out.

You’ll also find Wilds and Multiplier Wilds, which can add to your win by 2x to 8x. These can drop down during the Nudge feature as well, as they can make a winning combination.

At the top of the reels, you’ll find 3 Jackpots: Mini (40x your bet), Midi (200x), Mega (10,000x). If at any time, there are 3 Jackpot symbols on the first line of all three reels, you will win the lowest paying jackpot shown (they don’t all have to match). This can happen whether you have a win or not, and can happen at the end of a Nudge sequence. You can also win a Jackpot by getting 3 of the same symbols on the one winning payline.

Grand Spinn covers the gamut of bets, from a lowly 2 cents up to $200. With a 96.19% return-to-player percentage and a $400,000 max payout, this game would intrigue your grandmother and even the most cautious player. Be sure to check it out.

Note: There’s also a Grand Spinn Superpot that is a progressive slot. The Jackpot, as of this writing, was $25,574.08.

Monopoly SlingoSlotsGolden Nugget, Ocean, Pala, SugarHouse

Slingo games have gained in popularity over the past two years and now there are about a dozen titles in this series, including the latest one to hit NJ online casinos. A cross between slots and bingo, Slingo games use a bingo-like card and each spin gives you possible matches. For every bet you typically get 7 spins, with the option of buying extra spins if you’re close to making a match or Slingo for a payout.

The newest title in the Slingo line of games is Monopoly Slingo, which takes elements of one of the most universally loved board games and integrates it into the Slingo format. It may just be the best version yet!

The game is set on a Monopoly board, with the center holding the 5 rows of 5 cards each. First you choose your “profile” or Monopoly game piece: Scotty dog, race car, battleship or dinosaur. Each provides a specific number of Rolls (7-8), Extra Rolls (4+), and Top Prize ($12,500 to $100,000), and vary in volatility. Place your bet and hit Start. A Bonus Property will show up next to your profile, and should you land on a property of the same color, you will win the Bonus Money. (This can be won multiple times on one bet and increases each time!)

For each roll of the dice, your game piece will move around the board. (Roll a double and get an extra spin. Land on a colored property or railroad station and you will own that piece, and it gets a house. You then collect all the same color cards that are in the center. Land on the Jokers and you get to pick a card from a series of 9. If it has money attached, you win it. If you don’t pick the money card, that amount goes into Free Parking as a bonus for landing there. Land on Go to Jail and you have to either roll a double or waste 3 rolls getting out. Land on Chance or Community Chest and you’ll get to pick a card, which can be good or bad, just like in the original game. Land on Go and money is put into the Free Parking pot.

The goal of the game is to turn over as many property cards as you can to form Slingos. The more Slingos, the higher the payout. Should you be close to completing another Slingo or two, you have the option of buying additional spins. The price for each spin goes up the more you buy, but you can easily see what your total stake is for each bet, as well as the amount you’ve already won and could win.

A very friendly, fun game that will make you want to break out the original Milton Bradley Monopoly board game.

NarcosSlotsBetfair, Borgata, Golden Nugget, Ocean

In a nod to a popular Netflix series, NetEnt has come up with a new slot debuting a NJ online casinos. Narcos, a crime drama where law enforcement battles drug kingpins in Colombia, is the basis for a game of the same name. And the background sets the tone, as the reelset sits atop a sleepy little Colombian town with a nice Latin beat playing in the background. The fact that the Play button is the cylinder of a revolver loaded with 6 bullets is also a nice touch.

Base symbols include 2 cops, 2 bad guys, a femme fatale, flamingos, single engine plane and the Jack, Queen, King and Ace. Bonus symbols include a Wild (badge of justice), a Walking Wild—the badge encircled in flames—a Free Spins Bonus symbol, and the Locked Up symbol. Walking Wilds that are part of a spin stay on the reelset and shift horizontally one place to the left with each spin until there are no more reels to the left.

You’ve got three special features:

  • Drive-By: This is randomly activated and can transform some of the high value symbols into Wilds.
  • Locked-Up: Activated by 3 or more Locked Up symbols on the same row. They will be assigned a value, from 1x to 10x your bet, that will be use during your free spins. Get additional symbols adjacent to any existing one and the cluster will pay. Should you get the Golden Locked-Up symbol (a gold suitcase), it will unlock an additional special feature, like a value increase or upgrade symbol.
  • Free Spins: You’ll need 3 Free Spins symbols to show up on reels 1, 3 and 5. You’ll be awarded 10 spins, which can be retriggered. During this round you will encounter an increase in Walking Wilds, which helps significantly with wins.

There are a number of games based on Renaissance painter Leonardo da Vinci and his many famous works, most with long names (Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play, Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks, and Diamonds by Da Vinci, to name a few). The newest in the collection to arrive at NJ online casinos is simply called Da Vinci and is a product of High 5 Games. This 5-reel, 20-payline slot can be played for as little as 20 cents per spin and up to $200.

Base symbols include famous portraits (Mona Lisa, Lady with an Ermine, etc.), multiple gemstones, and the Da Vinci diamond. Bonus symbols include the Wild (reels 2. 3, and 4) and the Free Spins Bonus symbol (reels 1, 2, and 3). When you get a winning payline, all winning symbols are removed and new symbols tumble down in the Tumbling Reels feature.

You’ll need 3 Bonus symbols on a payline to guarantee the Free Spins Bonus. However, should you get 3 Bonus symbols in random positions on the reels, you may be awarded the bonus anyway. You’ll get 6 games, during which any of the portraits are considered Scatters, meaning you can paid if you get 3 or more anywhere on the reels. The bonus can be retriggered with 3 bonus symbols appearing anywhere on the reels. You’ll get between 2 and 4 additional free spins for 3 symbols; 4 to 10 if you get 4 symbols; and 6 to 15 free spins if you get 5. Free spins max out at 300.

Beer Barrel BashSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

In a festive mood? Ready for some cold frosty suds and some bratwurst? Then put on your lederhosen and test out Beer Barrel Bash, a timely addition to NJ online casinos, with Oktoberfest just around the corner.

This 5-reel, 80-payline slot is worth your time, with bets ranging from 80 cents to $160 and a return-to-player percentage of 96.5%. It features Lasting Loot, Locked Wilds and Symbol Upgrades.

Symbols are what you would expect: sausages, pretzels, cold mugs of beer, accordion, feathered felt hat, pretty servers dressed in dirndls, and the 9-J-Q-K-A. You’ll get to listen to polka music as the Wild beer mugs help complete paylines, and the Free Games Bonus symbols makes their way onto the reels.

Symbols show up as single, doubles or triples, meaning that you need at least 4 to win a payout, but it’s not that hard to get. Even better, the Wilds come in singles, doubles and triples, making for some hefty paydays.

One of the best features in the Locked Wild, which occurs in both the base game and the bonus game, and are particularly helpful in they’re stacked. During the base game they can increase and be held for a spin. They’re even more useful in the bonus game.

As usual, it will take 3 Free Games Bonus symbols (on reels 2-3-4) to trigger the bonus, although with Beer Barrel Bash, if the Bonus ribbons appear around the Wild beer mugs, it can substitute for a Bonus symbol. You’ll only get 6 free games, which appear on a different reelset. No retrigger available.

During the free spins, when you get a single Wild, it will lock in place. During the next spin it will become a double Wild and on the third spin it will become a triple Wild. That triple Wild remains until your 6 spins are exhausted.

Celebrate Oktoberfest with a bit of Beer Barrel Bash and a cold brew!

BonanzaSlotsGolden Nugget

This week’s latest addition to the NJ online casino scene is Bonanza, an exclusive slot to Golden Nugget. This slot from Big Time Gaming has a Megaways feature with up to 117,649 ways to win. Certainly worth a spin, don’t you think?

You’ll begin by entering the verdant hillside where the miner’s cabin sits where you will try to win your own pan of gold. This mining-themed game has you matching gemstones and gold symbols to win a fortune. Among the many symbols are 4 colored stones (blue, green, red and purple) and the 9-Ace. These symbols can show up singly in sizes ranging from 1 to 3 rows high, as well as Stacked Symbols.

This 6-reel game has 6 potential rows, which can mean that on certain spins, you have up to 117,649 ways to win. This monumental amount is helped by the fact that there is a row of 4 mining carts above the reelset, each of which holds a symbol. These help to make winning paylines. It’s also aided by the Reaction feature, which is much like Cascading or Tumbling Reels. Every time you get a winning payline those symbols dissolve and new ones are dropped from above.

In addition to the base symbols, there is a Wild (which appears in the mining carts only) and Scatter symbols, which spell the word G-O-L-D. You will need 4 of these symbols to get the Free Spins Bonus.

The Free Spins Bonus will start you off with 12 free spins. For every win in a row you get through the Reaction feature, your multiplier increases. (The multiplier is reset at the onset of each new spin.) You can get extra free spins if Scatter Gold symbols appear in the Carts. Get 3 for 5 extra spins or 4 for 10 extra spins.

This game takes a bit of getting used to, with symbols of varying sizes and integrating the Cart symbols into wins, but once you get the hang of it all, it’s quite fun, and it has a return-to-player percentage of 96% and a maximum payout of $800,000.

Wild CatcherSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse

Head to the mesas of the American Southwest to play the latest game at NJ online casinos: Wild Catcher. This fun slot from Wild Streak Gaming offers the more unusual 3-4-4-4-3 reelset and a whopping 576 ways to win. It’s a slot suitable for most any level of player, with bets ranging from a low 40 cents, all the way up to $100.

Your symbols are those associated with Native Americans, such as a tomahawk, warrior, gray wolf, painted stallion, drum, and the 9 through Ace. There is also a moonlit mesa that acts as the Wild and appears of reels 2, 3 and 4 only, and an arrowhead which is your Free Games Bonus symbol. That’s 13 symbols, which is certainly more than typical and given the reel configuration seems to make it more difficult to get wins, however, with 576 ways to win it’s actually not bad at all.

The game has a Wild Added feature, where 2—and up to 7—Wilds will be randomly placed on reels 2, 3 and/or 4 before your spin. These Wilds appear from the dreamcatchers that line either side of your reelset and can make for some fantastic wins.

The Free Games Bonus is triggered by 3 or more arrowheads. The arrowheads must start on Reel 1 and be on adjacent reels. You’ll get 10 spins for 3 arrowheads, 20 spins for 4, and 30 spins for 5. During this bonus, the Wild Added feature will occur more often. (I experienced it 5 times in 10 spins!) In addition, you can retrigger the bonus while playing it.

Slingo Wild AdventureSlotsBorgata, Hard Rock, playMGM, Ocean, SugarHouse

Slingo has debuted a new version of its bingo/slot hybrid titles at NJ online casino. Titled Slingo Wild Adventure, this is one of the best Slingo games we’ve played in a long time. Other games in the Slingo series include: Slingo Deal or No Deal, Slingo Reel Extreme, Slingo Reveal, Slingo Reel Bonus, Slingo Riches, and Slingo Showdown, among others. Let’s take a look….

This version has a cartoonish castle as the backdrop for your base game reelset, which is played much like a regular slot (rather than a typical Slingo board). Your symbols include 10-Ace (each of which shows a character like the King and Queen), plus card suits (diamonds, club, heart and spade), and the two Wild symbols.

The regular Wild is used as a basic substitute for all the symbols. But should you get the Super Wild (green ? with the Jester) on the center reel, it can trigger one of 6 special Power Up Wild combos:

  • Blue Shield Random Multiplier (2x to 20x)
  • Red Shield Random Multiplier (2x, 3x 5x)
  • Full Row Wild
  • Two-Reel Wild
  • Three-Reel Wild
  • Three-Row Wild

The Bonus symbol appears on reels 1, 3 and 5 only and each one will have a spin number attached to it (+3, +4 or +5). You need to land 3 of these bonus symbols to head to the Slingo Bonus. But…there is a Bonus Respin option, should you only get 2 Bonus symbols. You’ll have to pay for it and it’s not guaranteed, but it is a nice option you don’t see in many games.

The bonus game begins by adding up all the spins from your symbols to use during the round. The round is played on a traditional Slingo/Bingo card. Each spin will place a number at the bottom of the card. Match numbers to win money. Fill up lines, just like a Bingo card, and you increase your multiplier, which can really amp up your winnings. You’ll also find special characters:

  • Rocket: marks all squares on the column above
  • Jester: marks a random square in the column above
  • +1: adds an extra spin at the end
  • Red Dragon: blocks a match

There is also a bomb in the grid that can mark all the squares adjacent to it. This bonus round can pay handsomely and regular wins during the base game are frequent, as are the Super Wilds. This slot is definitely worth a go.

Tales of HerculesSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts

The mighty Tales of Hercules has made its slot debut at NJ online casinos. The new release from High 5 Games is a typical 5×4-reel slot with 40 paylines, which looks much like an ancient Greek temple, columns and all. Symbols seem a bit at odds with the theme, containing elks, lions, and gold apples, along with the more expected warrior princess, Hercules, a Wild, Free Games Bonus symbol, and the typical face cards.

There are some irregularities with the symbols: Some symbols show up as single symbols, while others are double. Double symbols appearing on one reel count as 2 symbols, making it easier to get more and larger wins. Those Wilds act normally during base play, but they can become Double Wilds and Triple Wilds during the Free Spins Bonus. The Free Games Bonus symbols will show up on reels 2, 3 and 4 only and you’ll need 3 to get to the bonus.

The Free Spins Bonus awards you 6 free spins on a different reelset. When a Wild lands during this bonus round it becomes a Locked Wild. On your next spin, it becomes a Double Wild and on the next spin, a Triple Wild, where it remains for the duration of the bonus round. This round cannot be retriggered. (Imagine if it could be though! All those Triple Wilds!)

Quick Hit Ultra Pays Sun DragonSlotsGolden Nugget

Summertime is the perfect season for a sun dragon to make its debut, and the latest NJ online casino slot does just that. Quick Hit Ultra Pays Sun Dragon is the newest dragon on the block, featuring 5 reels and 243 ways to pay. Players should enjoy the range of bets—50 cents up to $100—as well as the 96% return-to-player percentage and a potential jackpot of $250,000.

Quick Hit Ultra Pays Sun Dragon, from SG Digital, is exclusive to Golden Nugget’s online casino and has an unusual reelset. There are 6 rows, but only 3 are visible during the base game…usually. The game may randomly raise the curtain covering the top 3 rows, which increases your win potential.

Your base symbols include 9-Ace, lantern, temple, Hanzi lettering, cherry blossom and hat. Bonus symbols include the Sun Dragon Wild, which appears on reels 2-3-4, and the Scroll Bonus and Quick Hit symbol. The Scroll and Quick Hit are Scatter symbols.

This game employs the popular Quick Hit system, where 3 or more of this symbol scattered across the reels will pay out. The payout schedule for 5-9 Quick Hit symbols is located to the right of the reelset. Getting 5 typically is 10x your bet, while 9 will garner you 1,500x your bet!

To trigger the bonus, you’ll need 3 scattered Scrolls, which appear on reels 2-3-4 only. Once you land these, you will get a Pick Feature. You need to match 3 fireworks to determine the number of paylines (ways to win) during the bonus. These will range from 576 to 7,776! You’ll then get 8 free spins, which can be retriggered.

So enjoy the sun while it lasts!

Wild WorldsSlotsBetfair, Borgata, BetAmerica, Hard Rock, Ocean, playMGM, Resorts

Time to go wild at NJ online casinos, with the latest slot to make its debut: Wild Worlds. This new NetEnt creation has 5 reels and 5 rows, with bets ranging from 20 cents up to $400. It also has an impressive 96.47% return-to-player percentage, which is definitely on the high end of things.

There are numerous unique qualities to this game, which actually make it much more fun to play. You’ll be battling evil monsters along with three feathered super heroes. During base play, your heroes work the control room on the left side of the screen to help you gain an advantage (and increase your bankroll). Your reelset is on the right side of the screen.

During base play, you have the Avalanche feature where winning paylines explode and new symbols tumble down in their place to potentially make more wins. There is also a Random Destroy feature that can occur on losing spins. During this feature, symbols of one color remain, while all others are destroyed. The saved symbols tumble down to the bottom, while new ones rain down for a potential win.

You’ll also find Hero Wilds. Should 1 or more wins on a payline occur with silhouette symbols, then all symbols on the winning paylines explode and all remaining symbols turn Wild. Then new symbols rain down to potentially form new winning paylines with the Hero Wilds.

The best part is the Free Games Bonus, which provides you with 8 starting spins and consists of 3 levels— Ice World, Fire Land and Dark Forest. You need to get through one at a time by beating the dreaded monsters. Each one of these levels comes with a special Wild symbol—Spreading Wilds, Stacked Heavy Wilds, and Random Wilds. You can also gain free spins as you go along.

If you manage to get through all 3 levels, there is one final level. Can you trust your heroes to get you there? Only time, and some betting, will tell.

Knight's KeepSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, Ocean, Resorts

Get ready to head back to medieval times where the safety of the realm was granted by the bravery of the knights. In SG Digital’s latest release, Knight’s Keep just might protect your stash of gold, given the amazing bonus round that can be had.

The latest game to hit NJ online casinos has 6 reels with a unique 2-3-4-5-6-7 configuration and 192 paylines. While the reel configuration is somewhat unique, it’s not uncommon to get 40-70 paylines at once, although payouts are rather small per payline. But given that this game has a high 96.01% return-to-player percentage, it’s definitely a great one to try.

Your base symbols on Knight’s Keep include the heart, diamond, spade and club, a scepter and crown, the King, Queen and Joker, as well as a Knight Wild. All of these symbols can come singly or stacked on a reel.

There’s also a Bonus symbol, which does not occur on the first reel, and requires at least 3 to trigger the Free Spins Bonus. The number of free spins you get is dependent on the number of Bonus symbols:

  • 3 symbols = 5 spins at 2x your total bet
  • 4 symbols = 12 spins at 10x your total bet
  • 5 symbols = 25 spins at 50x your total bet

During this bonus round, the reelset is flipped, so the first row has the 7-symbol reel and the last reel is only 2 symbols high, making it easier to get wins. You can get up to 4 reels of the same symbol during any spin. As you can imagine, 25 spins at 50x your bet can add up to a very, very large win. As can 12 spins at 10x. The 5 spins is a bit low for a bonus game, but with multiple paylines and 2x your bet, it’s better than a poke with a sharp stick sword.

Turn Your FortunesSlotsBetfair, Borgata, BetAmerica, Hard Rock, Ocean

The newest game to hit NJ online casinos this week is Turn Your Fortune, with it’s stylized Victorian symbols and a perpetuum wheel that makes your bonus round even more exciting. But will it turn your fortune? Let’s take a look…

NetEnt’s creative new endeavor has two portions to your screen, a 5-reel, 4-row reelset on your right with 40 fixed paylines and a Fortune Wins Meter on the left side. The game contains 9 base symbols—Jack through Ace, Nautilus shell, mechanical owl, lion, turtle and fish—which can land on the reels as singles or as Stacked Symbols. Bonus symbols include the Wild and a Scatter, the latter of which only appears on reels 1, 3 and 5.

Three Scatter symbols are necessary to trigger the Free Spins with Fortune Wins (where the Fortune Wins Meter comes into play). You’ll start by spinning the three-tiered Bonus Wheel to determine the number of free spins, the collectible symbol that will help you move up the Fortune Wins Meter, and the step where your round will start.

During bonus play, you can accrue regular line wins and get collectable symbols that fill your Fortune Wins Meter. For every 20 collectable symbols, your Fortune Meter moves up one level. You can also advance levels by landing two special symbols: a key and a special +10 collectible symbol on reel 2. The key symbol will level you up the Fortune Wins meter. The +10 symbol will fill your meter by 10. You can also get 1 additional spin for each Scatter symbol that lands during your free spins. Once your Free Spins have ended, you’ll earn 20x the bonus number is highlighted on your Fortune Wins Meter. Then, you can begin round 2!

Round 2 is Fortune Repsins. You start the round with a spin and all your collectable symbols are kept and the rest of the symbols disappear. Then each respin lands your collectable symbol only. For every 5 symbols, you move up the Fortune Meter. Stop landing that symbol and the round is over. You’ll earn 20x the amount highlighted on the Fortune Meter, as well as any line wins available with your collectable symbol.

What we like about this game is that the bonus game essentially yields 4 payouts, which can be quite lucrative. We’re also enamored of the scroll work and stylized symbols that are used in the game. And with a 96.24% return-to-player percentage, it’s definitely worth a go!

Four GuardiansSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, Hard Rock, Mohegan Sun, Pala, Resorts

What do a dragon, tiger, bird and turtle have in common? No, it’s not a joke, it’s the theme for the latest NJ online casino game, Four Guardians. The slot is based on the Chinese legend of animal guardians that use their powers to help humanity. The only question is: Will they help you?

Four Guardians is a 5-reel slot with 243 ways to win. You can make bets as low as 25 cents, all the way up to $31.25. While the return-to-player percentage is a slow 94%, the ration of the max bet to the max payout is pretty awesome, with the highest payout sitting at $250,000. Typically, you’d see a max bet of $200 for a jackpot like that.

The base symbols include your 4 guardians, along with lucky 8 and 88, plus the Jack, Queen, King and Ace. There is also a mandarin orange, which supplies an additional way to win during your bonus round, plus the Chinese Coin Wild and the Chinese Lantern Scatter.

Land just two of the Scatter symbols to get a payout, but land 3 and you’ll trigger the Free Spins Bonus. I will note however, that in order to activate the bonus, those Scatters have to land on the first three reels. Once you do get the bonus, you’ll have your choice of 5 different spin/multiplier combos:

  • 20 Free Spins + 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier
  • 15 Free Spins + 3x, 5x, or 8x multiplier
  • 10 Free Spins + 5x, 8x, or 10x multiplier
  • 8 Free Spins + 8x, 10x, or 15x multiplier
  • 5 Free Spins + 10x, 15x, or30x multiplier

If you manage to get 3 additional Scatters on the first 3 reels during your bonus, it will retrigger once your first set of free spins is complete. You can even choose a different spin/multiplier combination for your second go. Also during the bonus round, if a mandarin orange appears with a gold star on reels 1 and 5, you’ll get a random award of 2, 5, 10, 15, 20 or 50 credits x your bet.

Let’s hope the guardians spin you some wins!

Da Vinci Diamonds MasterworksSlotsGolden Nugget, Hard Rock

The newest slot to hit NJ online casinos is a truly a masterpiece…courtesy of Leonardo da Vinci. Debuting this week is Da Vinci Diamonds Masterworks, the latest in a long line of art-themed slots that includes Da Vinci Diamonds, Da Vinci Diamonds Dual Play, Double Da Vinci Diamonds, Da Vinci Ways and Diamonds by Da Vinci. This new version holds up well against its predecessors, with some unique features.

The 5×4 reelset holds symbols that include the logo, 3 da Vinci portraits, 3 jewels, a Wild and a Bonus Scatter. Bets range from 40 cents to $200, with a return-to-player percentage of 94.16%. The game features Tumbling Reels, also known as Cascading Reels or the Avalanche feature. Tumbling Reels allows for the possibility of multiple wins on one bet. Every time you get a line win, the winning symbols explode and new ones tumble down to make potential new winning paylines. The reels will continue to tumble until no winning payline is present.

The game also employs Giant Portrait symbols. These 2×2 symbols can occur during your initial spin or be formed during the Tumbling Reels feature. When they are included in a winning payline, they will also show a multiplier for the win, which can be 2x, 3x or 4x. There is also a Mystery Portrait feature that goes along with these Giant Portraits. If you get a Giant Portrait but its not part of a win, it can change into a different portrait to form a win. This feature occurs randomly.

The free spins bonus game, called Masterworks Gallery Picker, has special features all its own. This bonus feature occurs when 3 Bonus symbols occur on reels 1, 2 and 3. You’ll get an initial 6 free spins, and you can win addition spins (3) every time you get 3 Bonus Scatters during a free spin. This bonus round uses different symbols, with the exception of the Wild and Bonus Scatter.

Before play, you’ll choose from one of 3 new portraits and its attendant bonus feature, which are:

  • Portrait Scatters – Giant portrait symbols count as Scatter symbols. A full portrait counts as 4 (2×2), but even if only half of a giant portrait appears, it still counts as 2 Scatters. As with regular Giant Portrait symbols, a multiplier is attached. Get more than 1 giant portrait and the win is multiplied by both multipliers!
  • Boosted Multipliers – this feature provides you with a boosted multiplier for all wins. It can be 4x, 5x or 6x.
  • Gigantic 2x Wilds – as the name implies, you can land giant 2×2 Wild symbols during the bonus. This makes for easier wins and they are multiplied by 2x.

The Masterworks Gallery Picker bonus also has a Second Chance feature, which occurs after your last free spin. You can win 1 to 6 additional free spins to continue play. This feature only occurs once during the bonus round.

Like previous incarnations of this game, you’ll find sparkling jewels and beautiful art. Wins come fairly often and the bonus game can pay very handsomely.

Let’s get wild with the latest slot to hit NJ online casinos. Wild Worlds, a NetEnt newbie, provides layers of fun as well as a nice return-to-player percentage of 96.47%. This is no basic 5×5 reel game. It’s a split screen riot of activity. You’ve got your three feathered heroes sitting in a control room on your left and the basic reelset on the right.

The reels contain base symbols that include colored gems that represent the colors of our heroes, three of which have a distinct symbol and three of which have a gold surround. Bonus symbols include your Wild, a Scatter S, and a Black Crown.

When symbols combine to make a win, any symbols on those winning paylines explode and new symbols tumble down to take their place. This is called the Avalanche feature. It can happen multiple times on one bet. You’ll also find two special features:

  • Destroy: Randomly occurs on losing spins only. The reels will keep only symbols of one color, which tumble down to the bottom, while new ones rain down for a potential win.
  • Hero Wilds: Should 1 or more wins on a payline occur with silhouette symbols, then all symbols on the winning paylines explode and all remaining symbols turn Wild. Then new symbols rain down to potentially form new winning paylines.

There is also a Free Games Bonus, which has multiple levels where you will battle monsters. You’ll start with 8 spins. The screen will switch from the control room on the left to a two-tiered platform, with our 3 heroes on the bottom and 3 monsters on the top. Wins of a certain color are attributed to a hero, who then lashes out at a monster (ouch!). Defeat all 3 monsters before you 8 spins runs out and you’ll go up against the Boss Monster. Another defeat will take you to the second level, where you start with a new set of monsters.

There are 3 levels, each with a special kind of Wild, which helps to make winning paylines and give our heroes the strength they need to defeat evil.

The game is very well thought out, fun to play, and the sound effects during the bonus game are hilarious.

This slot is played on 5 reels and has a massive 1,024 ways to win. Bets range from a low of 40 cents up to $280. Base symbols include your Red Roo, a male and female beachgoer, Australian shepherd, pink parrots, and the 9-Ace. Ayers Rock serves as your Wild, and is available on reels 2, 3 and 4 only.

The Scatter symbol is a map of Australia. You’ll need 3 or more to trigger the Free Spins Bonus. Awarded games are based on the number of Scatters you get:

  • 3 Scatters = 8 free spins
  • 4 Scatters = 15 free spins
  • 5 Scatters = 20 free spins

During this bonus, Wilds have multipliers attached, making your wins bigger than during the base game. You’ll also find that you’ll need just 2 Scatter symbols to get 5 additional free games. There doesn’t seem to be a limit on how many additional free games you can get.

Adding an air of authenticity to the game is the indigenous music and animal noises which play in the background. Just like being in the outback of Australia.

Quick Hit Super Wheel Wild RedSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

Given that it’s the 4th of July holiday weekend, let’s stick with the color theme and introduce the newest slot title to it NJ online casinos: Quick Hit Super Wheel Wild Red. The latest release from SG Digital is part of a series of slot games using the Quick Hit theme, one that has been popular in brick-and mortar casinos for more than a decade. Previous incarnations include:

  • Quick Hit Fever
  • Quick Hit Pro
  • Quick Hit Las Vegas
  • Quick Hit Platinum
  • Quick Hit Platinum: Triple Blazing 7s

This version includes the Quick Hit feature that the game is known for, as well as a Super Wheel with 4 bonuses and a Wild Red feature. The Quick Hit feature awards payouts based on the number of Quick Hit symbols you land. The more you land, the higher the payout. For example 3 symbols get you 1 x your bet, 5 gets 6x your bet and 9 will earn you 1,500x your bet. These payouts are in addition to any regular line wins you earn.

The Super Wheel Bonus is triggered by the Bonus symbol, which appears on the center three reels. You’ll need 3 to spin the wheel for a chance at a bonus payout, Quick Hit award, Free Game Bonus or Wild Red Free Game Bonus.

The Wild Red is a Wild symbol that can substitute for base symbols and comes into play during the Wild Red Free Games Bonus. During this bonus, prior to each free spin, the inner wheel spins to award Wild Red symbols for that spin. Those Wild Reds become Sticky Symbols and remain for the duration of your spins, making for some pretty hefty payouts.

The game is played on 5 reels and has 30 paylines, with bets ranging from 40 cents to $50. There’s a very decent 95.97% return-to-player percentage and a standard maximum payout of $250,000.

Summertime is in full swing and everyone is in vacation mode. While an exotic getaway may not be in your near future, you can head to Africa with the latest and greatest game available at NJ online casino sites. Making its debut is Serengeti Lions, a Lightning Box Game creation that follows in the popular footsteps of Serengeti Diamonds and recent releases Panda Pow, Respin Rhino and Red Roo.

This 5 reel, 40 payline game is perfect for new and low-stakes gamblers. Bets range from 48 cents up to $60 and has a 97.01% return-to-player percentage. It’s easy to learn and has some great features, like Expanding Wilds, Sticky Wilds, Hold N’ Spin Bonus, Free Spins Bonus, and a Stellar Jackpot feature, available only on certain Lightning Box titles.

Your symbols include Serengeti safari sights, including a lion, elephant, zebra, rhino, flamingo, thorned Acacia, plus the 9 and Jack-Ace. A red sunrise over a mountain serves as your Wild and the Scatter is a Diamond. You’ll need 2, 3 or 4 Diamonds to trigger the Hold N’ Spin feature, while 5 Diamonds will get you the Diamond Pick Bonus

The Hold N’ Spin Bonus not only allows you to garner some wins, but it can lead you to the Diamond Pick bonus. This is the way it works: Get 2, 3 or 4 Diamonds during a regular spin and it will lock those in and give you 3 more spins. Every time you get another Diamond, spins reset to 3. Get 5 Diamonds in total to move up to the Diamond Pick Bonus.

With the Diamond Pick Bonus, you can win up to 10 free games, in which all wins have a multiplier up to 8x. You start by selecting 2 of the 5 Diamonds that you landed. Each will contain either a number of spins or a multiplier. You’ll then play your spins, which each win being multiplied.

Finally, this is one of the Lightning Games that utilizes the Stellar Jackpot. To get to play for a jackpot, you’ll need 3 Spaceship symbols. These land in between the lines on the reels. The bonus has 6 challenge levels, which lead to a Jackpot level. At each level you will choose one of the symbols, which will reveal either a prize, advance you to next level, or give you a red X. A red X costs you a life. When your lives have been used, the bonus is over. But should you get to the Jackpot level, you will choose a spaceship that will reveal your jackpot, either Mini, Minor or Major.

Wild Fury JackpotsSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts, SugarHouse

Summer is now in full swing and it’s time to get wild! Wild Fury Jackpots just made its debut on several NJ online casino sites, and with its reasonable bet amounts (50 cents to $20), it’s a great slot to have some fun with.

This 5 reel, 4 row slot has 10 paylines and symbols that include two 7s, two dragons, and 6 colored gems. There’s also a Wild and a Wild Fury symbol that acts as your Scatter. Once your bet is placed, you can do single spins with the orange button, or choose Autoplay with the blue button. (Autoplay will turn off should you get a jackpot, if the Free Spins Bonus is triggered or the single win amount is reached.)

Once the reels start spinning you’ll notice Stacked Symbols, including Stacked Wilds. These can occur on multiple reels as double, triple or quadruple Wilds. Quadruple Wilds are triggered by a flying Gold Dragon, who can make one or two reels filled with Wilds. Needless to say, this is a good thing and can yield some great payouts.

There is also a Free Spins Bonus feature, which is triggered by 3 Wild Fury symbols landing anywhere on the center three reels (reels 2, 3 and 4). This will buy you one spin on the Bonus Wheel to determine the number of spins you get (10, 15 or 20). You are guaranteed one of five Jackpots when your bonus concludes, and it’s based on the number of Wilds you spin. During the bonus round there are more Stacked Wilds, plus you will find a +1 Spin that gets you one additional spin every time it appears.

Bonus spins also have Jackpot Level Up symbols. If you get a Single Jackpot Level Up on the center reel, each jackpot increases by its starting value. Get a Double Level Up on the center reel and each Jackpot increases 2x its starting value. This can occur up to 10 times during your spins, and can make for some big Jackpots.

So what are you waiting for? Take a walk on the Wild Fury side….

Chain BeatSlotsGolden Nugget, BetAmerica

For something a little different this week, we have a music-based slot making its first appearance at NJ online casinos. Chain Beat is a product of Spin Games, the maker of many of your favorite video poker games (Regal Poker, Jester Poker, Deuces Wild) and slots such as Fire Dragon, Gods of Fortune and Four Guardians, among others.

This slot looks like a DJ’s dream—the reels set amongst 6 large speakers, pumping out some mellow background music, as well as some fun beats during wins. Your base symbols include headphones, turntable, 10 through Ace, and the Blueberry Speakers, which act as your Scatter. There is no Wild available. Bets range from 30 cents to $300 on this 5 reel, 30 payline slot, that has a return to player percentage of 94%.

You’ll need 3 or more of the Scatter symbol to trigger the Chain Beat feature, and the symbols must start with the leftmost reel. This makes it significantly harder to trigger the bonus.

To begin the bonus, you’ll get 1 free spin, which can then be retriggered up to 12 times for a total of 13 free spins. To get additional free spins, you need 3 or more Scatters in spins 1-3, 4 or more during your 4th-6th spins and 5 or more during your 7th-12th spin. The Scatter symbols actually rain down from above and land on the reels randomly.

Star Watch FireSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts
Temple of NudgesSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, playMGM, Resorts

Several new games have made their way onto NJ online casino sites in the last week. Two of the latest and greatest are Star Watch Fire and Temple of Nudges, both available at Golden Nugget.

Star Watch Fire is a Konami product with 5 reels and 25 paylines. Bets range from $2 to $50, which is a departure from the majority of slots that go from less than a dollar up to several hundred. The minimum $2 bet covers 1 credit per line plus additional features. All 5 reels and all 25 lines are always active.

Your base symbols are all on fire, including a woman, dragonfly and a cat, as well as 2 flowers and the 9-Ace. There is also a Blue Star with a symbol on it. Land one or more and you win the cumulative total of the symbols. These can be credit amounts (50-1500), a Spin on the Wheel, or one of four Bonuses. Among them are the Mini, Major, Mega and Maxi bonuses, which are highlighted above the reels. The Spin of the Wheel can also yield one of the bonuses.

The Free Games Bonus is triggered by the Burning Sun symbol, aka the Scatter. Land 3, 4 or 5 of these Scatter symbols for 8, 12, or 20 spins, respectively. You’ll get paid for any regular wins, plus there is a Nudge feature during the bonus. If a Blue Star lands on a reel, after any wins are paid, it will be nudged until all positions on that reel are Blue Stars. Free Spins can be retriggered.

A Nudge feature is also available on our second game of the week, Temple of Nudges by NetEnt. This slot also has 5 reels but a much better 243 paylines. Bets are more typical, ranging from 25 cents to $250. There are only 8 symbols in this game, but they often come stacked. There are 4 temple animals and 4 temple icons.

The Nudge feature comes into play when you have a winning combination. After your payout, the reels move 1 symbol down and will continue to do so as long as a win is triggered.

Temple of Nudges also has a Respin feature. If a Respin overlay appears on a symbol during a win, all symbols of the same type stay on the reels while it respins for another potential win.

There is no typical free spins bonus game, but the Nudge feature comes into play regularly and the game has a 96.03% return to player, which is pretty darn good.

1st DownSlotsCaesars

Right now you can catch hoops, hockey and baseball, but football isn’t on the menu…unless you play at NJ online casinos. The latest game to hit the state’s sites is 1st Down, which is very clearly all about the game centered around the pigskin.

The 5 reel, 3 row slot has 30 paylines and bets range from 10 cents all the way up to $100. You’ll be starting the game off by choosing your team, of which there are 8:

  • Bobcats
  • Cyclones
  • Diablos
  • Stags
  • Stormers
  • Comets
  • Sabres
  • Hawks

Your team will be your highest winning symbol. Other symbols include 3 different players, a helmet, football, and the Queen, King, Ace. There is also w Wild, which substitutes for all symbols except the Gold Coin (which is also a multiplier from 1-10x).

Get 5 or more Gold Coins to trigger the 1st Down Bonus. Here you get to watch a series of virtual video clips of football drives. Your chosen team is the offensive team and every time you score a touchdown, you’ll get 6x the sum of the value of your bet.

If you score a field goal, it is 3x. But that’s not all. Remember the multiplier on those coins I mentioned above. Your wins are multiplied by the total sum of all the multipliers you got that triggered the bonus in the first place! The crowd will really cheer for that. Let’s hope that happens before your 1st Down Bonus ends, which happens when your team throws an interception or misses a field goal.

Golden GrimoireSlotsBorgata, Caesars, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, playMGM, Resorts

This week’s newest game at NJ online casinos takes into the mysterious world of sorcerers and their handy, dandy spellbooks, also known as grimoires. Golden Grimoire, a new NetEnt slot, debuted at six casinos and could possibly turn your fortunes.

Set in a darkened room lit only by candles, your reel set is surrounded by cabinets filled with potions, ready for use. With 5 reels and 20 paylines, this game has a wide span of betting options, from 20 cents all the way up to $400. Even better, it has a return-to-player percentage of 96.44% and a max payout of $640,000.

Your base symbols include 4 gemstones—red spider, blue snake, purple scarab and green kraken—as well as card suits hearts, spades, diamonds and clubs. These can come singly or as Stacked Symbols. Special symbols include a Mystery symbol (the sorcerer’s grimoire), which occurs on reels 3/4/5 only, a Scatter, and the Wild, which can only occur through the of the Mystery symbol.

Should you land one or more Mystery symbols, they will transform into one specific symbol. It could be any of the gemstones, card suits or even the Wild. Should you be lucky enough to have it transform into a Wild, then all symbols to the left of the Mystery symbol on that row will also turn into Wilds, making for some fantastic wins.

You’ll also notice that when Mystery symbols land that 1 or more of the symbols on reel 1 are surrounded by an aura. Should your Mystery symbol turn into one of these designated symbols, all symbols between the Mystery symbol and reel 1 will also change into that symbol.

The Scatter symbols only occur on reel 1, 3 and 5. You will need 3 in order to trigger the Free Spins Bonus. You’ll be awarded 8 bonus spins, which unfortunately cannot be retriggered. However, during the bonus spins, all Mystery symbols become Sticky Symbols. You’ll find these can land on reels 2 through 5 during free spins and during each spin the symbol will change (which is wonderful thing if it’s a Wild!).

This is a fun game to play and it’s made easier by the use of Autoplay, which has multiple functions. In addition to choosing from between 10 and 1,000 spins, you can choose to stop based on 5 criteria:

  • Any Win
  • If Free Spins are won
  • If single win exceeds a set amount
  • If your cash balance increases by a set amount
  • If your cash balance decreases by a set amount

Celestial Sun RichesSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM, SugarHouse

It’s a sunny day today, completely appropriate for the debut of the latest NJ online casino slot game. Celestial Sun Riches, from Konami, is a medium volatility game with 576 ways to win. Bets start at $2 and go up to $100.

Your reelset consists of 5 reels, with a 3/4/4/4/3 configuration. The center 3 reels (2/3/4) are a special reel area called Ultra Reels. Any Wild that lands within this area changes to either a 2x Wild or a 3x Wild. Any Sun Scatter that appears within this area changes to a Ringed Sun Scatter. Additional base game symbols include 5 celestial icons and the 9-Ace.

The Free Games Bonus feature is triggered by 3, 4, or 5 Sun or Ringed Sun Scatters. You’ll be awarded between 7 and 20 games, depending on the number of suns, and all wins will be doubled during your free spins. Additionally, should any of the Scatters be Ringed Suns located on the special reelset, you’ll trigger the Wheel Bonus, in addition to the Free Games Bonus.

For the Wheel Bonus, each Ringed Sun will turn into a Wheel. You’ll spin each in turn and get one of the following for each Wheel spin:

  • Monetary Award: Between 500 and 5,000 credits X your bet level.
  • Free Games: Between 3 and 15 free spins (in addition to what you have already wone in the Free Games Bonus).
  • Multiplier: A 3x or 5x multiplier applied to any Wild on the special reel area during your free games.
  • Jackpot: Based on your total bet amount. Jackpot amount is located in the top left corner and is based on your Bet Amount. The higher your bet, the higher the Jackpot.

Once the Wheels are complete, your Free Spins will begin.

For those of you who like Auto Play, you’ll find it available on Celestial Sun Riches. You can opt for 10 to 500 spins. Additionally, you can engage the Turbo mode that allows spins to occur in quick succession, rather than waiting for the game to show you each individual line win.

Raiden VSlotsGolden Nugget
Gypsy Fire Quick Strike OnlineSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget. Mohegan Sun, Resorts

Two new games have made their way onto NJ online casinos in the last week. The first is an exclusive to Golden Nugget, while 4 casinos are offering our second slot. They couldn’t be more different in theme, but both are worthy of your attention.

First off is Raiden V, our Golden Nugget exclusive. This game has a Star Wars-type theme, featuring spaceship symbols. What makes it unique is that 5 of the ships are 2 rows high, with the remaining 6 ships taking up just a single space on the reels. You also have a Wild and a Raiden V Scatter symbol.

Raiden V employs a very unique Cascade feature. On the right side of the reels, you have a Weapon Spinner. It will land on a blue laser, red Vulcan or purple plasma. If you have a line win and any 1 or more symbols are framed in the color of the weapon, then all symbols framed in that color on the reels explode and are replaced with new ones. Wilds do not have a frame, so don’t explode. For each 4 exploding symbols, you’ll get an additional multiplier. The Weapon Spinner may also land on a Bomb. If you get a line win, then all symbols on the board explode (except Scatter symbols).

There is also a Free Games Bonus, triggered by 3 or more Raiden V Scatter symbols. You’ll get 15 free games, which can be retriggered by 3 or more Scatters occurring on a free spin. During this bonus round, the Weapon Spinner is not in play.

One very unique feature of this game is found in the Game Settings. Kudos to the designers for adding a right hand/left hand mode. You’re able to change where the Spin button is located, making it easier for lefties, particularly on a desktop with a mouse.

Our second slot is the latest from Konami, a Quick Strike version of their 2017 hit Gypsy Fire. This new slot takes much of the same game play and adds their Quick Strike Online feature, which is a linked Progressive that includes a Major and a Mini Jackpot. You’ll find the current payouts for these jackpots above the 5 reel/30 payline reelset.

Base symbols for Gypsy Fire Quick Strike Online include the gypsy, a green gem, tarot cards, spellbook, teacup and the 9 through Ace. There is also a Crystal Ball Wild and a Gypsy Fire Scatter symbols. This last symbol can trigger the Free Games Bonus, should you get 3 or more. The more Scatters you get, the more spins:

  • 3 Scatters triggers 8 free spins
  • 4 Scatters triggers 12 free spins
  • 5 Scatters triggers 20 free spins

Your free spins can be retriggered by 2 or more Scatters appearing on a free spin. Also in play during this bonus is a special Crystal Ball Wild. Whenever it lands it can randomly assign a multiplier of 2x to 5x to increase your payline wins.

Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway SlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

The latest addition to the Wheel of Fortune slot series has made its debut at several NJ online casinos. Wheel of Fortune Hawaiian Getaway follows in the successful footsteps of Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Fortune on Tour, Wheel of Fortune Ultra 5 Reels, Wheel of Fortune Triple Extreme Spin and Wheel of Fortune Winning Words. So is this slot worthy of its ancestors? We think so.

Let’s take a look.

This slot version of the popular TV show takes place on the whit sandy beaches of Hawaii, in case you hadn’t already guessed that. Your base symbols are 5 different postcards (Surf, Hula, Aloha, Tiki and Lava), as well as the Jack-Ace. You’ll also find the typical Wild on reels 2/3/4/5 and a Wheel Bonus Scatter. Bets can range from 50 cents up to $250.

This Wheel of Fortune (WoF) slot has a Big Kahuna Respin feature not found in other versions. The feature is triggered by 3 or more adjacent Stacked Symbols of the same postcard. This can be on reels 1/2/3, 2/3/4 or 3/4/5. During the respin, all adjacent symbols turn into 1 Jumbo Symbol and will have a random multiplier of 2x, 3x, 4x, or 5x attached. The respin can be retriggered if you should get an additional reel of Stacked Symbols.

Also on hand is a Wheel Bonus, the ubiquitous nod to the TV game show that is included on every WoF slot. It will take 6 or more of the Scatter symbols to trigger this wheel, but there are 4 possible prizes available:

  • Monetary Award: Based on your bet amount.
  • Pointer Frenzy: Activates up to 6 additional pointers on the wheel, making for some really big wins.
  • Jackpot Bonus: There are 5 jackpots—Gold, Silver, Green, Purple and Blue. You’ll find the Jackpot payouts listed above the reels, with the amounts based on your current coin bet (from 50,000 to 1,000). Vanna even makes an appearance here congratulating you on your win.
  • Free Spins Bonus: You’re awarded 10 free spins, which can be retriggered by 6 or more Scatter symbols landing on a spin. (Maximum 120 spins.)

With its low-key Hawaiian soundtrack, you’ll want to grab a mai tai, head out to the lounge on your deck, and have some fun with this Hawaiian-themed WoF game.

Amazing Ripley's Believe It or NotSlotsCaesars

One of the newest games to hit the NJ online casino market is absolutely amazing…as in Amazing Ripley’s Believe It or Not. This new slot takes its cues from both the museums and the TV show bearing the same name. And it lives up to its moniker with 7 features and bonuses, twice more than the typical online slot.

You’ve got your standard 5 reels with 27 paylines and bets range from 50 cents up to $125. Symbols include the rare and unusual things in the world, such as the Pyramids, Roman Colosseum, white crocodile, pink dolphin, upside down house, square watermelon, blue corn, two-toned apple, and a purple cauliflower. There is also a R logo Wild, TNT symbol, multiplier symbol, wheel and a Ripley’s Bonus symbol. Overall, that’s a whole lotta symbols to try and line up on a mere 27 paylines. But some of the features help to overcome this.

There are Mystery Symbols, which can occur randomly during the base game. Seven spots on your reels are converted to one symbol prior to payout, increasing your chances for a win. There are also random Mystery Wild Reels, a feature that will turn 1, 2 or 3 reels into logo Wilds.

Bonuses include:

  • Trivia Bonus: Get 2 or 3 Ripley’s Scatters to trigger this. A trivia question pops up with 4 possible answers. The sooner you get the right answer, the larger your win.
  • Wheel Bonus: Triggered by 3 Wheels on reels 1, 3 and 5. The wheel will spin and award a specific payout from 250x to 500x your bet, a Free Spin Bonus, or a Wheel Bonus Trivia.
  • Wheel Bonus Trivia: This is similar to the Trivia Bonus, but it has a Tally feature and a Zap feature, making it easier to win a higher reward.
  • Free Spins Bonus: There are 4 possible spin combinations here – 10 spins + Mystery symbol, 7 spins + Mystery Symbol Wild, 7 Spins + 1-3 Mystery Wilds, or 5 spins + 3 Mystery Wilds.

As if that wasn’t enough, there is a Wild Replicator feature triggered by the TNT symbol on the 3rd reel. It will convert regular symbols into a logo Wild and a multiplier symbol can also appear on the 3rd reel, adding 1x multiplier to any win.

Oh, and did we mention there is also a Progressive Jackpot!

The only downside to this new slot is the return to player percentage, which is a paltry 93.22% (as opposed to the 95% or 96% most new games are sporting these days).

Scudamore's Super StakesSlotsBetAmerica, Betfair, Borgata, Caesars, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Ocean, playMGM, Resorts, Tropicana, Virgin

We’ve got a brand new NetEnt game debuting at NJ online casinos with promo codes. Just in time for the Triple Crown and Breeder’s Cup races, Scudamore’s Super Stakes online slot is debuting at a grand total of 11 online casinos, which may be a new record!

Scudamore’s Super Stakes is a horse racing-themed slot featuring 5 reels and 20 paylines. Bets range from 10 cents to $100, with a maximum payout of $500,000 (twice that of typical slots) and a very nice 96.11% return-to-player percentage.

Base symbols include 4 jockeys on horseback, Jack-Ace, a Wild symbol and a Scatter symbol (which only appears on reels 1, 3 and 5). There are also horseshoes, which can be randomly placed on any spin and turn into Random Wilds. You can get 2 to 5 on these at any point in the base game.

One very unique feature is the Bet Slip. This is an optional side bet that is separate but tied to your reel spins. You click on the Bet Slip to the right of the screen. Then you choose any of the symbols in the game That will provide you with 4 different spin selections and the odds of winning. So if you choose the red jockey, for example, your options might be to get 16 to show up on 10 spins, 28 to show up on 20 spins, 40 to show up on 28 spins or 50 to show up on 32 spins. Then you choose your bet and each option shows you its own odds and payout. The Bet Slip is in play for the number of spins you select. If you don’t hit the required number of symbols, it gets crumbled up and tossed, much like you would do at the track. If you manage to get enough symbols, you win the amount listed at the bottom of the betting slip.

There’s also Peter’s Classic Cup, triggered by 3 or more Scatter symbols. You’ll need to have winning paylines to move your horse forward in the race and win the prize (before another horse does!).

The King Wild can show up as a Gigantic Wild, taking up additional lines and two reels, while all other symbols can show up as Stacked Symbols.

The Bonus symbol is a shield. If this should appear on reel 1 with no King Wilds, a random multiplier of 2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x appears and will multiply any win you may have. If you get the Bonus symbol and 1 or more Gigantic King Wild, you’ll trigger your King Free Spins Bonus. You’ll get 8 free spins with any Wild symbols that trigger the bonus staying throughout your spins. As you can imagine, that can lead to some nice payouts. Hail to the King!

Mad Scatter's Tea PartySlotsGolden Nugget

The latest slot to enter the NJ online casino arena is based on a beloved storybook character. The Mad Scatters Tea Party is a loose interpretation of the characters in Alice in Wonderland, with this one taking a much darker view than the lighthearted versions we’ve seen in the movies. In fact, the game’s image looks more like The Addams Family meets Stephen King.

The slot utilizes a 5×3 grid with 10 paylines. The payline symbols include the 10-Ace and the Wild Clock. These are the only symbols to pay out using a traditional payline.

You’ll also find 4 Mad Scatter symbolsAlice, Dormouse, March Hare and the Mad Hatter. You’ll select one of these characters at the beginning of the game and have the option of changing at any time. Get 3 or more of your Mad Scatter symbols and they will expand and pay as Scatters. This can lead to some very nice wins.

There is also a Teapot Bonus symbol, three of which will trigger the Bonus. You’ll get between 4 and 18 free spins—depending on your Mad Scatter and the number of bonus symbols you get, with multipliers ranging from 1x to 10x.

  • Alice: 10/14/18 free spins with 1-4x multiplier
  • Dormouse: 8/12/16 free spins with 1-6x multiplier
  • March Hare: 6/10/14 free spins with 1-8x multiplier
  • Mad Hatter: 4/8/12 free spins with 1-10x multiplier

During bonus play, any additional teapots will reveal additional Mad Scatters and a multiplier is revealed on each spin during this round and appliers to all wins on that spin. Free spins cannot be retriggered.

As a bonus, you’ll find fun little quotes from the book after each spin. Be sure to read them, they’ll put a smile on your face.

Pick-Nik ParkSlotsCaesars, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

As a child growing up, I always loved Yogi Bear, that mischievous ursine who took every opportunity to steal a picnic basket with his best friend Boo Boo. C’mon, you remember! Well, now there’s a brand new slot available at our NJ online casino deals list that is reminiscent of that kid’s cartoon called Pick-Nik Park, from High 5 Games.

You’ll enter the national park, where bears rule the roost. Symbols include the big bear, a park ranger, a tourist in his car, a raccoon, as well as the 5, 9 and Jack-Ace. The big tree serves and your Wild, the buzzing beehives are your Scatter symbol, and the picnic basket is your Bonus symbol, triggering the Free Spins Bonus.

The musical accompaniment is a happy banjo/backwoods tune with the characters making noises or chiming in on occasion with quotes like:

  • “Don’t feed the bear.”
  • “It’s picnic time.”
  • “Corn on the cob…yum, yum, yum.”

Special features include Scatter Bucks, where those beehives have a cash value or a Wild attached to it. If it lands on the first reel you will get between 25 and 150 credits, with each successive reel having a higher limit. You’ll also get a to spin the Prize Wheel to determine your multiplier for a cash win if you get a full reel of Wilds. There are also Nudging Wilds. If you get the beehives on two or three of the reels, it can nudge a beehive onto a 4th reel, making for some nice wins.

Then there is the Free Spins Bonus. Three or more picnic baskets trigger this feature. You’ll choose from 3 more falling baskets to determine your free spins number. In addition to your free spins, you’ll get a special Wild basket symbol, which will increase your multiplier (50x to 1000x) on a line win. You also may get special Scatter Bucks symbols, which will add a 1x multiplier each time.

Diamonds by Da VinciSlotsCaesars, Mohegan Sun, Resorts
Monopoly MillionaireSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts

Recently we reviewed both Da Vinci Ways and Monopoly 250K available at Golden Nugget’s online casino, and this week we have two new companions slots debuting at several other NJ online casinos. You’ll find Diamonds by Da Vinci and Monopoly Millionaire now available for your playing pleasure. Let’s see how these games work….

Diamonds by Da Vinci is a 5 reel/20 payline slot, with symbols that include: 4 gemstones, logo, and 3 of Da Vinci’s most famous paintings. There is also a Wild symbol appearing on reels 2-3-4 and a Bonus symbol, appearing on reels 1-2-3 only.

This game features Tumbling Reels, which occur on every win. A winning payline will drop off all winning symbols with new ones dropping down into their place, allowing for additional wins.

Three Bonus symbols will trigger your Free Spins Bonus, which awards 6 free spins. During this bonus the 3 paintings will act as Scatter symbols, meaning that they don’t have to appear on a payline for a win, you just need 3 or more of one of the symbols to appear anywhere on the reels. You can retrigger this bonus with 3 Bonus symbols, which will award you between 2 and 4 more spins. If you get 4 Bonus symbols, you’ll get 4-10 additional spins, and 5 Bonus symbols will get you 6-15 extra spins. Maximum spins for this bonus is set at 300.

Over to Monopoly Millionaire, a slot where every square on your 5×5 grid is its own reel. That makes for 25 reels and 40 paylines. Symbols include Uncle Moneybags Wild, Big Wheel Bonus Scatter, diamond, Uncle Monopoly logo, M, cash, boat, car, motorcycle and an airplane. There are also Chance and Mystery symbols, signified by orange and blue question marks. When these appear, they’ll be randomly replaced with one of the base symbols.

A Community Chest Bonus can be randomly triggered during any base game spin. You’ll have the choice of one of three Community Chest cards, which provide a line win multiplier (2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x). That multiplier will apply to all line wins for that spin.

The Big Wheel Bonus is triggered by 3 Big Wheel Bonus symbols during the base game. These symbols appear on reels 1, 13 and 25 only. One wheel spin is awarded, which will provide one of the following bonuses:

  • Free Parking Bonus – select 5 of the 23 cars available. Each car represents a cash prize or a Jackpot symbol. Collect jackpot symbols to win cash prizes with a multiplier.
  • Railroad Bonus – 8 free spins with multiplier from 2x to 10x
  • Electric Company Bonus – 10 free spins. During the spins a Switch symbol may appear on reel 25 and illuminate the Lamp symbols that appear only during this bonus. Each Lap will have a cash value from 50x to 1000x your bet. You can also win additional free games if a +2 symol lands on reel 25.
  • Go to Jail Bonus – You’ll have 3 attempts to roll the dice and get doubles. If you roll them on the first try, you get 75x your bet, 2nd try earns 25x your bet and 3rd try earns 10x your bet. If you fail to roll double, you’ll get a 5x cash prize.

The big bonus feature is the Super Jackpot, where you have a chance to win $250,000. It can occur on any base game that doesn’t result in a win.

Spin DoctorSlotsCaesars
Undead RichSlotsCaesars

Voodoo and zombies are the themes for this week’s newest slots at NJ online casinos. We’ll head down to the bayou with Spin Doctor and to a post-apocalyptic world in the Undead Rich, both from Inspired Gaming.

Spin Doctor might make you think of hospitals and scrubs, but this is anything but. Taking place in a moonlit swamp with an eerie old house in the background, your spin doctor is actually a top hat and bead-wearing croc dressed in something appropriate for Mardi Gras.

This game features a Bonus that offers 3 choices, based on bubble you pop when the bonus begins. There is the Super Swamp Spins, which gives you Stacked Wilds on reel 3 for every spin. You’ll get unlimited spins until you hit a payout that is at least 20x your bet. Free Spins is the second option, where you get 10 free spins. Every time the voodoo doll shows up you she replaces the lowest value symbols and awards you an extra spin. Get 2 or 3 voodoo dolls and you’ll get 3 or 5 additional spins. Finally is the Croc Trails, where you roll the dice to make your way through the swamp. Along the path you’ll collect multipliers, and if you land on one of the huts, you get cocktails, which can either enhance your wins or end the round.

The game also has a Win/Win feature, a Bonus Chance feature and a Fortune Bet button, which doubles your bet and doubles the height of the Bonus symbol.

For some zombie action, check out the Undead Rich, where your hero is a lumberjack lookalike with a heavy duty pump-action shotgun. Like the aforementioned Spin Doctor, this game has Expanding Wilds, Upgrade Symbols and a Fortune Bet.

You’ll want to see the Zombie Wild, which appears on reels 2, 3, and 4. It can expand to make for some great wins, and when it appears during the Free Spins Bonus, you’ll get 1 additional free spin for 1 Wild, 3 extra spins for 2 Wilds and 5 free spins for 3 Wilds. It can also cause symbols to upgrade during the Free Spins round.

As for that Free Spins round, it’s triggered by 3 Bonus symbols. You’ll get 12 free spins. Spins can be retriggered by 3 more Bonus symbols, plus you get 1 more bonus spin for every Wild that shows up.

Joker's RichesSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts
Panda PowSlotsCaesars, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

We’ve got two more new slot entries this week, one that heads back in time, with another featuring warrior pandas. Very diverse in theme, but similar in content features. Let’s take a look.

Joker’s Riches, a new slot by High 5 Games, goes medieval and features 3 Jokers, all female, which is a departure from the norm of the day. You’ll also find the King and Queen, a Golden Chest, plus 5, J, Q, K, A. Bets range from 80 cents to $200.

Those Jokers show up as Wilds on the 5th reel, and will trigger Activated Wilds. This feature transforms all other similar Jokers (purple, orange or green) on the reels into Wilds, making for some nice payouts.

There’s also a Free Games Bonus, which is triggered by landing 3 Free Games symbols in any position on reels 2, 3, and 4. You’ll get 7 spins on a different reelset, which cannot be retriggered

For some lighthearted fun, check out Panda Pow, developed by Lightning Box Games. Here you’ll find Asian-themed symbols that include a paper lantern, decorative fans, coins, goldfish, and pandas, as well as J-Q-K-A. There’s also a Warrior Panda that appears on reels 2/3/4 and acts both as your Wild and the Scatter. Bets range from 25 cents to $100.

Five or more Warrior Pandas initiates the Free Spins Bonus, and you’ll get up to 20 free games. Here you’ll find the Gold Panda on reels 2/3/4/5, which will act as your Wild. Free spins can be retriggered.

In addition to Panda Pow, the following Panda-themed games are available:

Magnificent JewelsSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts
Da Vinci WaysSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

If you like the finer things in life, then this week’s two new slots should fit the bill. Debuting at NJ online casinos are gemstones and museum-quality art in the form of Magnificent Jewels and Da Vinci Ways, both by High 5 Games.

Magnificent Jewels utilizes flamboyant brooches as part of their symbol set, including those in the shape of a gecko, butterfly, and flower, plus there are three gemstones: emerald, amethyst and topaz. A shopping bag serves as your Scatter, and there is no Wild.

Rather than your traditional paylines, Magnificent Jewels has Cluster Bucks. This feature pays for adjacent groupings of symbols, linked horizontally or vertically. You’ll need 5 or more clustered symbols for a win.

This slot also employs Tumbling Reels, aka Cascading Reels. When you get a winning payline, all symbols in that payline disappear and new symbols take their place for potential additional wins. As long as you get a win, those reels keep tumbling, which can make for some hefty payouts.

To trigger the Free Games Bonus, you’ll need 3 shopping bags, anywhere on lines 2, 3, and 4. You’ll get 7 free spins on a different reelset. This bonus feature cannot be retriggered.

Our second slot features some of the most celebrated painting by Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci. Da Vinci Ways features 4 of the artist’s famous paintings, 3 gemstones, a Diamond Wild and a Free Games symbol. The Wild only appears of reels 2, 3 and 4. This slot also employs the Tumbling Reels feature, but the paylines are more typical, with 243 ways to win.

With this slot, you’ll also need 3 Free Games symbols to trigger the Free Games Bonus. Here you’ll get 10 free spins on a different reelset. And with this slot, you can retrigger the bonus, up to 50 spins.

La BombaSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget
Respin RhinoSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

It’s just about that time when you’re getting ready to think about a vacation. If your choice were between heading south of the border to Mexico or across the ocean to the African savannah, which would you choose? Well, this week you can head to both, virtually, through the new slots available at NJ online casinos.

Sunshine and all things fiery await you in Mexico with SG Digital’s La Bomba. This spicy game is centered around bombs of all kinds, including a cherry bomb, Molotov cocktail, dynamite, a Latina bombshell and the central figure, La Bomba.

La Bomba acts as the Wild and appears on reels 2, 3 and 4 only. If you manage to get 3 of these, you’ll trigger the Explosive Free Games, of which you get 5 free spins. During this bonus round if La Bomba lands on a reel that has a Trigger Win above it, you’ll win that amount. Reel 2 pays 1x, Reel 3 pays 2x and reel 4 pays 3x. If you get dos La Bombas during this round, you’ll get 1 extra spin, while tres La Bombas gets you 2 extra.

Keep your eye out for the tiny little mouse that scurries around the reels carrying his own bomb, wreaking havoc. Makes for a nice distraction.

Big (and small) game animals feature predominantly in our second slot, Respin Rhino, which is set on the plains of Africa. Symbols include the rhino, a white tiger, monkey, elephant, plumed bird and 9-Ace, all of which can land as Stacked Symbols.

The African princess is the Wild, appearing on reels 2 and 4 only. When she triggers a win on one line, she will expand to potentially make additional line wins.

When you get matching symbols in all 8 positions on reels 1 and 5, it will trigger Rhino Respins. All the symbols on reels 1 and 5 become rhinos and you’ll get 3 respins, with the hope that you get additional rhinos for a big payday. Barring that, if you get a Wild, it will stick and restart the respins, which can make for some nice wins.

Slingo Deal or No DealSlotsBorgata, Caesars, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, playMGM, Resorts

The latest slots-meets-bingo Slingo game made its debut this week at NJ online casinos and is based on the popular TV game show, Deal or No Deal. This online version has many of the same features, albeit in a slightly different format.

Just like on the TV show, Slingo Deal or No Deal starts off with the opportunity to pick your Lucky Box. You’ll have to wait to see what it is, but it’s placed adjacent to the reels as a reminder. Then it’s time to set your bet, which can range from $1 to $100. Each bet provides for 10 spins, and each spin places a number under each reel on the grid. Match numbers to reveal the prize below it and remove it from the game. If you manage to clear 5 unopened boxes next to each other (vertically, horizontally or diagonally), you create a Slingo and move up the prize multiplier.

In addition to grid numbers, this Slingo version has:

  • Jokers: allows you to mark off any number in that reel
  • Super Joker: allows you to mark off any number on any reel
  • Free Spin: adds an additional spin to your original 10
  • Devil: blocks potential matches on a reel

You’ll need 4 Slingos to unlock the Banker’s Offer. If you have additional spins, you can continue to play, take the offer, or unlock the Lucky Box and get 2x its contents. If you’re out of spins, you can take the offer, open your box at 2x or pay for additional spins. If you manage to make it up the prize scale a few more places, the banker may make a second or even third larger offer. Once you take an offer, the amount in your Lucky Box is revealed.

If you manage to clear the whole board and get a Full House, you’ll get 20x your lucky box. But remember, that lucky box could be worth as little as 40 cents. So watch as the prize amounts are deleted with each Slingo match. The Banker’s Box just may be a great offer.

And remember, if you don’t quite make it to a cash prize at the end of 10 spins, you can buy additional spins, the cost of which escalates with each additional purchase.

Other Slingo Titles Available at Golden Nugget:

  • Slingo Carnival
  • Slingo Extreme
  • Slingo Fortunes
  • Slingo Reel Bonus
  • Slingo Reel Extreme
  • Slingo Reveal

Mammoth PowerSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

If you’re looking for a mammoth win this week, check out the newest game available at three NJ online casinos. Mammoth Power, Konami’s latest release, just made its debut and it brings with it Action Stacked Symbols, a Free Games Bonus and a return-to-player percentage of 96.07%.

This new title takes us all the way back to the Pleistocene era, when wooly mammoths roamed the planet. The slot features 5 beasts from that time period, along with the 9-Ace, a spearhead that acts as the Scatter, and a firepit that acts as a Wild. Symbols can show up alone or stacked.

The Free Games Bonus is triggered by 3 or more spearheads on any reels. Three will get you 8 spins, while 4 will provide 20 and the maximum of 30 free spins is earned with 5. You can trigger additional free spins during this bonus round, with as little as 2 spearheads.

During the free games if you should land a firepit symbol, it will change into a 2x or 3x multiplier. You can get more than one multiplier on a spin, making for some good line pays.

Taking a chance on this slot could earn you up to $424,800, the maximum payout amount, which is pretty mammoth in my book.

WishwoodSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

There’s an old saying: “If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.” And today’s newest NJ online casino slot entry plays right into that. Wishwood, a new creation from IGT, has you wishing on a magical tree that is protected by a mysterious forest sprite named Poa. Poa is one adorable little creature, who sighs heavily when she cannot give you a bonus feature, of which there are many.

First there are Tangled Spins, which can be triggered during any spin. With this feature, your winning combination will lock in place and you’ll get a respin. Any new wins continue to lock in place and drive another respin. Respins are complete when no more winning lines appear.

Then there are the Orb Buds that appear above the reels. They will provide you with a Mystery Pick Bonus. You will choose one of the orbs to reveal either a Wispy Wild, a Magic Multiplier, or a Bonus Climb. With the Wispy Wilds, you will get up to 4 additional Wilds on a spin. Magic Multipliers provides for 3 or 4 multipliers to appear on a spin, in the amounts of 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, or 10x.

The Bonus Climb is the big one, and can also be achieved by getting 3 Bonus symbols anywhere on reels 1/3/5 – or – if you get 2 bonus symbols, Poa may appear and kick a third one onto the reels for you. With this feature, you’ll spin a wheel to see how far Poa can climb the magical tree, the higher she climbs, the richer you get. If you reach Branch 11, you’ll be awarded with the Top of the Tree Bonus. This bonus has Amber Wilds, Enchanted Wilds and a Top of the Tree Bonus, allow which will pay handsomely.

Strolling Staxx: Cubic FruitsSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts

Spring is just around the corner, bringing with it juicy fruits for our enjoyment. While you wait for that to happen, you can get your mouthwatering fill of fruit at the newest slot to debut at NJ online casinos, Strolling Staxx: Cubic Fruits from gamemaker NetEnt is a fun game with some unusual features, similar to Butterfly Staxx and Neon Staxx.

Strolling Staxx is a 5 reel, 10 payline slot with retro fruit symbols reimagined as cubes (lemon, plum, strawberry, cherry, watermelon), the Jack-Ace and a Wild. Symbols can show up as singles or stacked, and should you get one or more full reels of Stacked Symbols, they will turn into Strolling Staxx Respins.

During the Strolling Staxx Respins, all of the stacks (and any identical connected symbols) move one reel to the left until all the symbols are removed from the reels. If you should trigger another stack during your respins, the respins are activated for that stack as well. As you can imagine, this can make for some nice payouts.

You’ll also find Colossal Symbols, where identical symbols that occur adjacently in a 2×3 or 3×3 grid become magically colossal. These can contribute to Stacked Reels and work within the respins as well.

In addition to your regular bet, you can activate the Bonus Bet, which elevates the cost but also gives you the potential for the Extra Chance. The Extra be activated when you have respins that don’t activate a 3×3 Colossal Symbol. Your Extra Chance places an overlay of a 3×3 grid of Colossal Symbols on the reels to earn you a win.

Mercy of the GodsSlotsBorgata, playMGM
Lawless LoveSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse

This week’s newest slots at NJ online casinos come from two ends of the spectrum. We’ve got a Linked Progressive that takes place in an ancient Egyptian pyramid and a Wild West slot complete with a romantic backstory. Will the gods be kind in NetEnt’s Mercy of the Gods and will you love High 5’s Lawless Love? Let’s take a look….

Mercy of the Gods is a complex game with a whole lot going for it, including a 96.64% return-to-player percentage, an Autoplay feature that allows up to 1,000 spins, and multiple features and bonuses. The symbols are what you would expect in a game based on Egyptian mythology: Tutankhamen, scarabs, Horus falcons, and a Scatter symbol represented by the Eye of Horus.

The first feature is the Gift of Life Respins, which occurs when you get a one or more Wilds. During the respin, the Wild become a Walking Wild, moving down by one position for every respin until it disappears. Additional Wilds on a respin will keep the feature going. It will end when no more Wilds are visible on the reels. You can also trigger the Gift of Double Wilds, when a second Wild lands behind an existing Wild. If this happens, the entire reel becomes Wild, and as respins occur, all Wilds move down one row. Pretty nifty.

There’s also the Eye of Horus Free Spins, triggered by 3 or more Scatter symbols. While this feature cannot be retriggered, you can get the Gift of Life Respins during the bonus round, which can extend the round significantly.

As if that wasn’t enough, there are also 3 Jackpots: Mino, Major and Mega. The Mega Jackpot keeps growing until it is won, while the first two jackpots are a set win at 20x and 100x of your bet, respectively. These can only be won during the Gift of Wealth Bonus game. You’ll need a minimum of 3 golden heart bonus symbols to get to this bonus, which will be collected in a coin display in the right corner. Then you’ll move to a different reelset and your collected coins are placed on the reels in a random position. During your 3 spins, if a bonus symbol lands on a spin, you will win a cash prize and it will become sticky. You will then get 3 more spins. You need to fill 1, 2, or 3 full rows with bonus symbols before your spins end. Fill one row and get the Minor, two rows and get the Major and all three rows to get the Mega Jackpot.

Lawless Love is our second new option and is much like the recently reviewed Golden Gladiator (below on February 21st). It has a complete backstory, which takes place in the Wild West where the mayor’s daughter falls in love with a bandit. Not just any bandit, but the most wanted bandit, and they run off together. The mayor proceeds to offer a bounty for the outlaw.

The symbols include our masked bandit, his true love, the mayor and the bounty hunter, along with 5, 9 and Jack-Ace. You’ll also find a Wild—which appears on reels 1/2/4/5 and can come as Stacked Wilds, and a Sheriff’s Star—which acts as the Scatter and appears on reels 2/3/4.

This slot features a Scatter Bucks feature, which is the Wild wrapped in a banner with a credit value. This special Wild can appear on any of the 5 reels during the base or free spins games and each reel has a different credit value when it does show up.

  • Reel 1 = 25-100 credits
  • Reel 2 = 25-500
  • Reel 3 = 25-2,000
  • Reel 4 = 25-2,000
  • Reel 5 = 25-10,000

The Free Games Bonus is triggered by 3 Sheriff Stars appearing anywhere on reels 2, 3, and 4. You will be awarded 7 free spins on a different reelset. The free spins can be retriggered by the appearance of 3 more Sheriff Stars, up to 98 games.

The Green Machine DeluxeSlotsCaesars

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day is Caesars’ new Green Machine Deluxe, the latest slot to hit NJ online casinos. A popular brick-and-mortar game, it is somewhat the antithesis of your average slot, where most, if not all of the rows are a framed blank. Let’s take a look and see if this Green Machine will pay off like an ATM or suck the green right out of you.

The Green Machine Deluxe is a fairly simple game that is devoid of base game symbols. Your 5 reels each have 3 rows of green frames. When blank, you win nothing; when a prize amount appears, even if only on one row on one reel, you win that amount as a Scatter Pay. So what you’re looking for is cash amounts to show up. Values range from $1 to $1,000 and multiples can appear on the reels at once.

Alternately there is a Free Spins symbol. The Free Spins Bonus is triggered by 1 or more of these symbols appearing in any position on any reel. You’ll get 1, 3 or 5 free spins on a different reelset, which can be retriggered. It did seem as though you won more multiple awards during this round.

Then there are 5 different Jackpot symbols. You need to land just one gold bar symbol on a played line to win. Each of the 5 jackpot symbols only show up on one reel. For example, the Mini Jackpot, which shows as 1 gold bar for 20x your bet, is only on reel 1. Payouts and symbols are as follows:

  • Mini – 1 gold bar – 20x
  • Minor – 2 gold bars – 40x
  • Major – 3 gold bars – 200x
  • Mega -4 gold bars – 400x
  • Grand – 5 gold bars – 1000x

While it can be a bit boring to watch blanks show up all the time, it is easier on the eyes that would typically go searching to see if there are any winning paylines. and the background music is that of an old-school slot, which is quiet pleasant.

Soaring StallionSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts
Lucky Shih TzuSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts
Tumbling TogetherSlotsGolden Nugget

NJ online casinos are adding a menagerie to their slot offerings with three new animal-themed games making their debut this week. Two of the games, by Spin Labs, are progressives with an Asian theme, while the third is an adorable take on an eclectic group of silly characters.

Soaring Stallion is our first Linked Progressive, with 5 reels and 40 paylines. Base symbols include the Dragon Ring, Gold Chinese Coin, Lucky Horseshoe, Chinese character, Stallion’s Saddle, 8, 88 and J-Ace. That makes for a whole lot of symbols to try and match, but add to that the Soaring Stallion Wild and the Gold Bar Scatter and it feels almost impossible to put 3 symbols together (although the slot does seem to pay fairly often up on testing).

Three or more Gold Bars on consecutive reels (starting with reel 1) will initiate your Free Games Bonus. You’ll have 5 different gaming options for your free games:

  • 20 spins at 2x, 3x or 5x
  • 15 spins at 3x, 5x, or 8x
  • 10 spins at 5x, 8x, or 10x
  • 8 spins at 8x, 10x, or 15x
  • 5 spins at 10x, 15x, or 30x

Progressive Jackpots are randomly triggered and can be awarded at the end of any base game. The Minor Jackpot ranges from between $1k and $3k, the Major ranges between $15k and $25k, while the Grand is always between $75k and $100k.

There’s also an adorable dog in Lucky Shih Tzu, our second Linked Progressive. Here your symbols are also in abundance: Wheel Power, Chinese Hat, Wild, Lucky Shih Tzu, boy, girl, and dog collar, along with 8, 88, and Jack-Ace.

The Chinese Hat, which occurs on reels 1, 3, and 5 only, will trigger the Lucky Shih Tzu Bonus, where you’ll be awarded 10 free spins on a different reelset. All wins are doubled during this bonus game.

The Wheel Power symbol will appear on reels 1 and 5 only. Get one on each reel and trigger the Wheel Power Bonus. This is a double layered wheel with the top layer awarding Credits (and a possible respin), while the bottom layer awards additional spins.

The Progressive Jackpot works the same as Soaring Stallion.

And last, but not least, we have Tumbling Together, where everything is blue skies and rainbows with cute little animals tumbling out of the clouds, thanks to Tumbling (aka Cascading) Reels. Your symbols include a panda, pig, chicken and fish, along with Queen, King and Ace. There’s also a Wild, which appears only on the center 3 reels.

You’ll also see a Free Games symbol in the form of a barrel. You’ll need 3, in any position on reels 2/3/4, to start your Free Spins Bonus. You’ll get 10 free spins set on a different reelset. Should you get 3 more bonus symbols during your bonus spins, you’ll be awarded 5 more free spins (for a max of 60 spins).

Triple RavenSlotsGolden Nugget
VikingsSlotsBetfair, Borgata, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, playMGM, Resorts

Birds play a part in both the latest slots debuting at NJ online casinos. You’ve got ravens—typically a symbol of bad luck—in Triple Raven, and watchful crows—seen as a symbol of power—in Vikings, a slot based on the hit History Channel series.

Will these two games fly away with your money or lay a golden egg?

Think Edgar Allen Poe in the literary based Triple Raven. This High 5 game has a 3-4-5-4-3 reel configuration and features books as its Scatter symbol. There is a key that opens the portal to the Nevermore Bonus, and the Raven itself comes as a single, double and triple symbol, making for some pretty nice wins.

Land 3 books to trigger the Free Games Bonus. You’ll get 6 spins on a separate reel set. Free spins can be retriggered with 3 books. And will award an additional 3 spins.

You’ll need 3 keys, which only appear on reels 2/3/4, to get the Nevermore Bonus. Here you’ll select a door to determine the available awards and difficulty of the Bonus. There are 5 tiers within this bonus, each with different options: Green Door, Yellow Door, Red Door. You’ll choose one option to reveal an award, which can range from 25 to 2500 credits and advance you to the next tier. As you go higher, Exit doors are added which will end the bonus.

Vikings is a refreshing slot based on a current TV show, rather than something from long ago (like Baywatch). The slot has a great intro featuring the main characters with pounding, pulsating music and flames flying. Then a mysterious mage appears to whisper hoarsely at you…and then the game begins with the reels set between crows. Symbols include some of the most popular characters, along with the 10-Ace, Viking V logo, and Raid Spins. There is no Wild.

This game has a HotSpot feature during the base game on reel 3. When a fully stacked Viking character lands on the HotSpot reel, all other Viking symbols are transformed into the Viking symbol that landed in the HotSpot. This activates Scatter Pays.

You’ll need 3 Raid Spin symbols on reels 3/4/5 during the base game to initiate a Raid. During this time the game transforms into a 7-reel, 5-row reelset with over 78,000 betways. Seven spins are awarded and you’ll have 3 HotSpots available on reels 3/4/5.

The final special feature is the Shield Wall, which occurs in the base game and during Raid Spins. It’s a cluster of mystery shield symbols that appear randomly. Once the shields are removed, all symbols that were underneath them are the same, which can result in some nice wins.

Great MoaiSlotsGolden Nugget

Today’s letter of the day is “G.” And gosh, golly, gee, we have two great games that have debuted at NJ online casinos: Golden Egypt and Great Moai. Both have garnered great reviews and are worth a trip to Golden Nugget’s online casino to give them a go.

Okay, enough of the alliterations…here’s the gist of each of these new slots.

Golden Egypt is an IGT creation featuring 5 reels and 25 paylines. Taking place in the land of the pharaohs, you’ll see familiar symbols, such as Anubis, Ankh and the Eye of Horus.

The game features Wild Stays 2 Plays and a Player Decision Free Spins Bonus that has Expanding Wilds. The Wilds Stays 2 Plays is triggered by Gold Coins. Above each reel is a spot for 2 Gold Coins. Whenever a Gold Coin lands on a reel, it is transferred to an open spot above. When you fill both spots, the whole reel will become a Wild for the next 2 spins. Oftentimes you’ll get two reels that will become Wild at the same time, making for some nice wins.

The Player Decision Free Spins Bonus is triggered by 3 or more Bonus symbols. With this bonus you are allowed to determine how many free spins and Expanding Wild reels you will get. For example, if you get 3 Bonus symbols, you can choose from the following:

30 Free Spins + 1 Expanding Wild Reel

15 Free Spins + 2 Expanding Wild Reels

5 Free Spins + 3 Expanding Wild Reels

During the Bonus game, the Wild reels will appear on each spin, changing position after each spin.

Our second game, Great Moai, takes us to Easter Island, aka Rapa Nui. This remote South Pacific idyll is known for its mysterious totems called Moai. There are almost 900 of them dotting the volcanic island. Created over five centuries ago these behemoths are oversized carved heads that rest on pedestals. It is these symbols that are the basis for this new game from Konami.

You’ll find 5 reels and 30 paylines, along with Action Stacked Symbols, Single and Double Wilds and a Free Games Bonus. Symbols include a mask, warrior, turtle, coconut, flower and the 9-Ace. The Moai Totem is the Wild and comes in 1x and 2x versions.

There are also special symbols that can appear of the Moai and on the reels, 3 or more of which will trigger the Free Games Bonus. This bonus provides for 8, 12, or 20 spins, depending on the number of symbols. Wilds, both 1x and 2x, appear more frequently during this round.

There’s also a randomly triggered Wild feature, where full reel Wilds enter from the right and march to the left, filling up 1 or more reels with Wild or Double Wilds.

Golden GladiatorSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse

It’s not every day that a new slot arrives at NJ online casinos complete with a backstory, but today’s High 5 Games creation has just that and more. So let’s head to the colosseum and see what our Golden Gladiator has in store for us.

According to the casino description for this game, a man was robbed of his love and dignity and strives to win then both back in what can be called an “epic historical drama.” He was banished to fight far from home by the emperor, in hopes of keeping him from his daughter. Now seeking revenge, he returns as a gladiator to fight for his freedom and marry his true love. He must battle and be the last man standing to win her hand. Wow….

The game itself has a very unusual reelset. There are 6 sets of 4 symbols, each forming a block. You can choose to play 1 or more of the blocks at a time. The only way the game pays is if all 4 symbols within a block is identical. At that point it becomes a large symbol and produces a payout.

You’ll need 1 or more large Free Games/Scatter symbol to play the Free Games Bonus. You’ll receive between 7 and 30 free spins, depending on the number of symbols showing. Free Spins will take place on a different reel set.

There is also a Pick Bonus, also called the Treasure Tier Bonus, which requires 1 or more large Shields to occur. The number of tiers equals the number of picks you’ll get and each tier contains 4 different pick options, which will be either a credit or multiplier amount.

This game has a 95% return-to-player ratio and a maximum payout of $500,000. Well worth a few spins while you root for the hero.

Wild StreetsSlotsGolden Nugget

We’ve got another doozy of a game for you this week at NJ online casinos. This new slot, titled Wild Streets, has multiple Wilds, multiple Scatters, fun features and 4 different bonus win options. Lets take a look at this new SG Digital offering currently only available at Golden Nugget’s online site.

Wild Streets has a very comic book take on the seamier back alleys of the inner city. Your 5 reels are set on a chain link fence that leads to a brick alley. Characters include a man with beret, nose ring and large facial scar and a female with a gorgeous purple Mohawk. You’ll also find a boom box, Wild Streets logo, and Jack-Ace as symbols, along with a Wild, Bonus, and Golden Cash Register.

During the base game there are 3 features:

  • Graffiti Wilds occur when a reel gets “tagged” by spray paint, turning all the symbols into a Wild.
  • Golden Cash Registers (which act as a second Scatter symbol) can land on any reel and if you land 3 or more, you’ll pick one of the registers, which will open and award a cash prize from 3x to 500x your total bet.
  • Jackpot Arcade is triggered when all the letters of the neon JACKPOT sign light up. (This sign is located to the left of the reels.) Then the door to the arcade will open and you’ll enter and be given the ability to choose arcade tickets. Get 3 matching tickets to win one of four jackpots: Mini, Minor, Major, Grand.

Now to the Bonus Scatter symbol. Landing 3 Bonus symbols triggers the Bonus Feature Selector. A random feature or prize will be awarded. These include:

  • Subway Ticket Free Spins: This is considered the best bonus, and can be retriggered. Any Free Spin Tickets that show up during this feature will act as a Wild. Each winning ticket will award +3, +5, or +10 Free Spins.
  • Wanted Level Free Spins: 10 Free Spins. Wandering Wilds sub in for regular Wilds. It also acts a Sticky Wild for the remainder of your spins, but will move around to different spots on the reel after each spin.
  • Back Alley Cash: You’ll be awarded 1-2 die and 1-3 rolls. Roll the dice and move along the trail to higher bet multipliers. Reach the Big Win Truck for a chance to spin the Bonus Wheel, which has multipliers from 38x to 1000x your bet.
  • Cash Prize

And as if that wasn’t enough, you have the option to Collect or Gamble during this bonus phase. So what are you waiting for? Hit the Wild Streets and have some fun.

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron BurgundySlotsBorgata, playMGM

I’m not one for comedies, preferring thriller and adventure flicks, but I recently had the occasion to watch Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. I was surprised at how much I liked it and even more surprised that this 14-year-old film has just recently been made into a new slot, now available at NJ online casinos!

That’s right, now you can play along with your favorite characters, played by Will Farrell, Steve Carrell, Paul Rudd and Dave Koechner. Even Baxter the dog is included. Other symbols include a tumbler of booze, Champ’s cowboy hat, the van and Fantana’s sunglasses. And, Captain Obvious is at work here with the bonus symbol being a big neon Bonus and the wild labeled This Is A Wild.

The game carries 3 features during base play:

  • Mystery Stack Reels: When in use, each reel contains positions that are replaced with one of the regular symbols.
  • Ron Reels: A similar feature but it only includes 5 symbols: This Is A Wild, Ron, Baxter, booze, cowboy hat.
  • Baxter Wilds: This feature randomly paces 3 to 10 This Is A Wild symbols on reels 2-5.

If you spin 3 scattered Bonus symbols on reels 2/3/4, you will get 1 spin on the Big Bonus Reel. The reel features 4 different games you can win:

  • Ron’s Giant Free Games (reels expand to 19 rows on this one!)
  • Whammy! Free Games
  • Brick’s Weather Wheels
  • Sex Panther Pick Feature

Also on the Big Bonus Reel are 3 Jackpots ($25, $100, $1,000) and 3 Cash Prizes ($5, $7.50, $10).

The game itself is a barrel of fun, even if you’ve never seen the movie. The background music is reminiscent of the ‘70x, the era the movie takes place in, and you’ll get different songs with each of the different bonuses too!

Astro CatSlotsGolden Nugget
Slingo RevealSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM

This week brings an unusual game from Down Under and a brand new version of Slingo to NJ online casinos. And without further ado, here is our rundown…

Our first game is from Lightning Box Games, a smaller gamemaker out of Australia. While they’ve been around for over a decade, this is one of the first slots I’ve seen from them and it’s rather complex. Titled Astro Cat (they also have a slot called Astro Pug) is an Asian-themed game with an unusual configuration. At first glance, the reels have a 2-2-4-4-4-4-2-2 configuration, which is 8 reels in total. But in reality, the outer two reels on each side count as one each and center 4 reels are counted as one reel, called Reel 3 or Reelfecta.

With 1296 ways to win, it really doesn’t matter if has 4 center reels or 1, the game pays often. The Wild Cat appears on reels 3 and 4 only. There’s also a Fireworks Bonus, which acts as the Scatter. Five or more on the Reelfecta takes you to the Free Spins round. Things get a little strange here.

After your first 3 free spins, starting at the top left corner and moving clockwise on the outer potion of the Reelfecta, you’ll see either a Wild Cat or a Poison symbol. The Wild Cat will lock in place and give you an extra spin. These can add up and pay big. But…if the Poison appears, free spins end and you’re only paid 2x your bet amount. During this round if you manage to get all 12 outer positions on the Reelfecta filled with Wild Cats, you get 1 Mega Spin, which can really pay off.

As daunting as this game may be to play, it’s actually quite fun and you’ll get the hang of it in no time.

Our second title is the latest in a long line of Slingo games, a cross between slots and Bingo. This new title, Slingo Reveal, has your standard 5×5 reel set and you still need 5 numbers in a row to get a “Slingo,” but the twist here is that every time this happens a symbol will be revealed with a prize amount. If you manage to collect the correct number of that particular symbol, you’ll win the corresponding prize!

Each bet corresponds to 9 spins of the slot reel, which rains down numbers, Jokers, or the devil, who blocks a potential match on the grid. Should you get close to matching 5, you can purchase spins at the end of your game to get more chances at winning a prize.

Slingo games have become quite popular and there are about a dozen variations with different themes and bonus features. If you haven’t played before, now’s the time to try one!

China Shores Quick StrikeSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse

Ready to make a quick strike to win a fortune? That just might be possible with the latest slot to debut at NJ online casinos. We’ll take a look at the newest game available that has not one but two progressive jackpots available.

China Shores Quick Strike by Konami is the name of the game and while it has a whopping 12 symbols on its 5 reels, there are 30 possible paylines and a multitude of features included. First there is Action Stacked Symbols, giving you a greater chance at a winning payline, along with a Panda Wild and a Yin/Yang Scatter. That Scatter symbol can lead to a Free Games Bonus that awards between 8 and 15 free spins. All wins during these spins are doubled and the feature can be retriggered.

When the game is triggered you can choose Free Games or Credit Prize. The more free games you exchange, the higher the prize amount. When playing free games, you can exchange your balance for a Credit Prize, provided you have at least 20 free games remaining.

There’s also a Quick Strike Online feature that is a 2-level linked Mystery Progressive that is randomly won. The more a player bets, the higher the chance of hitting a progressive. The Mini Jackpot ranges from $100-$200 and the Major Jackpot can earn you from between $1000 and $3000, so you just might strike it rich!

Tiki IdolSlotsGolden Nugget
Dazzling DragonsSlotsGolden Nugget

We’re heading into a weekend that promises to be verrrrry cold. With the polar vortex blanketing much of the country with freezing temperatures (New Jersey included), we thought you might want to test out some new slots at NJ online casinos that feature warmer themes. Hence, we’ll head to the tropics and the land of the tiki, and back in time where the dragon’s breath will more than warm you!

You’ll forget all about the snow and ice as you play Tiki Idol, set on a sandy beach with the sun shining and palm trees blowing in the wind. The waves crashing in the background will drown out the sound of your neighbor’s snow blower, and the beat of the drum will have you tapping your feet, which will keep them from getting too numb from the cold!

With 5 reels and 40 paylines, tiki masks dominate the symbols, along with the typical Jack-Ace, and a Free Games Scatter symbol. If any one of the 5 masks appear in all positions on 2 or more reels, you’ll be awarded a Scatter Pay, from 2x to 250x your bet, depending on which mask and how many reels are covered in them.

Three or more Free Games Scatter symbols will trigger the Free Games Bonus, which will award 7-50 free games, depending on the number of symbols landed. You’ll use a different reelset that features a sunset on the beach, with tiki torches illuminating both sides of the reel.

Set against a brightly lit sky with nice Zen-inspired background music, Dazzling Dragons is our second new slot of the week. Given it is by High 5, the same gamemaker as Tiki Idol, many of the features are the same. Instead of tiki masks, you’ll find 5 different dragons, along with a 5 and Jack-Ace. You have the same Stacked Scatter Pay, where the same stacked dragon symbols over 2 or more reels take flight and provide you with a Scatter Win.

Three or more White Planet Scatter symbols will trigger the Free Games Bonus, which will award 7-50 free games, depending on the number of symbols landed. You’ll use a slightly different looking reelset during this portion of the game. There is no retriggering of this bonus.

Wild BazaarSlotsBorgata, playMGM

Welcome to a new week and a new game on NJ online casinos. This week kicks off with a trip to Middle Eastern bazaar, which holds a wealth of treasures, from the gem-encrusted jewelry that make up the symbols to the brightly colored chests that will provide you with free spins featuring four Wild bonuses.

Wild Bazaar, a NetEnt creation, has the standard 5 reels and 26 paylines. With bets ranging from 20 cents to $400, it’s affordable to any level of player. The most important feature of the game comes when you get 3 or more matching chest symbols appearing consecutively on a winning payline. When that happens you will be awarded free spins and a Wild bonus.

The number of spins you will get with your specific award is based on the number of matching chests that were part of the winning combo. If you land 3 or more Red Chests, you will get Stacked Wilds during your free spins. Land 3 or more Green Chests for Colossal Wilds, which are two symbols high and two symbols across. Pink Chests yield Linked Wilds, and Blue Chests will get you 2X Multiplier Wilds. With a 96.15% return-to-player percentage, you can do well on this game, while having fun at the same time.

Leonidas King of the SpartansSlotsGolden Nugget
The Legacy of Cleopatra's PalaceSlotsGolden Nugget

Ancient royalty is the topic of two new NJ online casinos games, currently available only at Golden Nugget. We’ll head to ancient Greece and watch Leonidas march into battle, and then enter the palace of an Egyptian queen to raid her treasure.

First off is Leonidas: King of the Spartans, a new slot very reminiscent of Gerard Butler in the movie 300. This legendary Spartan warrior and his wife Gorgo are the keys to wins in this game. There’s the Group Leonidas Win feature that occurs when reels 1 & 2 are filled with his symbol. If this occurs, all Leonidas symbols stand and draw their shields. Reels 3-5 continue the sequence if Leonidas stacks land full on the reel.

There’s also a Random Leonidas Win, where you may get 6 or more Leonidas symbols randomly dropped onto the reels, triggering a win. And, finally, a Free Spins Battle Feature. You’ll need two Gorgo symbols to trigger this, which will show up on reels 3 and 5. During the spins are various bonus icons, which can award you additional free spins a Stacked (and Sticky) Wild reel, and even a 5x multiplier. After each spin, if the image of Leonidas or his two captains appears, there will be an arrow attack. Any surviving images will become locked as a Spartan Wild for the remainder of spins.

Meanwhile across the Mediterranean Sea lies The Legacy of Cleopatra’s Palace. This High 5 game has symbols not unlike similarly named Cleopatra slots, such as the scarab, Eye of Horus, and other Egyptian icons, as well as the 5, 9, and Jack-Ace. The logo is the Wild, with all wins including the Wild paying 2x. King Tut’s sarcophagus acts as the Scatter, with 3 or more Scatter symbols starting the Free Games Bonus, which awards 15 free spins.

During the Free Games, all wining paylines pay with a 3x multiplier, unless a Wild shows up and then it will be 6x. You can retrigger the Free Games with 3 additional Scatter symbols for a max of 180 free spins.

Cocktail CashSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts
Art of the StealSlotsSugarHouse

Well it might only be Tuesday, but you can get ready for the weekend with a sip of Cocktail Cash, one of two new slots available at NJ online casinos this week. It’s joined by the Art of the Steal, an art heist-themed slot featuring some of the most iconic artwork in the world. Let’s see if we can paint a good enough picture for you to want to check them out!

Cocktail Cash is a fun take on a very swinging 1960s cocktail party, complete with retro music. Symbols include margaritas, martinis, strawberry daiquiris, along with your bartender and hostesses. Jack-Ace are additional symbols, as is the golden shaker, which is your Wild and can come with a multiplier attached. During Free Games Bonus you can get more than one Wild with multiplier, making for some big wins.

The Bonus Select is the best feature and is initiated by 3 Bonus Select symbols appearing on reels 2, 3, and 4. You’ll be awarded 1 pick and can choose from 5 options:

  • 3 games with 9x, 15x, or 24x multiplier
  • 5 games with 6x, 9x,or 15x multiplier
  • 7 games with 5x, 6x, or 9x multiplier
  • 9 games with 4x, 5x, or 6x multiplier
  • 12 games with 3x, 4x, or 5x multiplier

If you’ve always wanted to be a cat burglar and steal precious artwork, then the Art of the Steal, a new entry from High 5 Games lets you do just that. Enter the gallery, where you’ll find paintings/symbols by Monet, da Vinci, Vermeer, van Gogh and other famed artists. They share the reels with Queen-Ace, Wild and the Red Alarm, which serves as the Scatter symbol.

The game’s special features include the Loot Line, which is a separate bonus payline comprised of Loot Line symbols that appear in the bottom right corner of the symbol. Get a winning payline with Loot Line symbols and your multiplier will be 22x the regular payout.

There is also the Pick Bonus, awarded when 3 Red Alarms appear on reels 1/3/5. The Pick Bonus offers 3 options to choose from. You’ll get one choice, which will reveal an award that will be 5-25x your bet.

Fortunes of the AmazonsSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget
The Leprechaun KingSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget

What’s on your agenda for this weekend? Looks like it’s going to be mighty cold (getting down to 3 degrees on Sunday in some parts of the state), so we’ve got a few new games for you to check out while you chill by the fire and watch a little football action.

Two new slots are available for your review at two NJ online casinos, so lets get two it : )

Fortunes of the Amazons is a new entry from Side City Studios that features Locking Wilds, Amazon’s Fire feature, the Luna Bonus Wheel and a Free Spins Bonus. Symbols include female Amazon warriors, golden chest plates, arrows and jewels. There’s also a Wild, a Free Spins symbol and a Bonus Wheel symbol.

The Amazon’s Fire feature can be triggered after any spin in the base game. You will be awarded one free spin and during that spin 4 Wild symbols will randomly appear on the reels to help complete paylines. This feature pays a guaranteed win of .5X your total bet. The Luna Bonus Wheel is triggered when 3 Bonus Wheel symbols appear on reels 1, 3, and 5. There are two wheels that spin concurrently, one awarding a credit and the other a multiplier.

And lastly, Free Spins are awarded when the Free Spins symbol lands on reels 2, 3 and 4. You’ll get 5 spins on an alternate reelset and each spin has one Wild randomly added. That Wild is then locked in place for the duration of the spins, giving you increased chances of winning on each subsequent spin.

If you believe in the luck of the Irish, then you’ll enjoy The Leprechaun King, a High 5 Game with the Bonus Select feature. Three crowns appearing in any position on reels 2, 3, and 4 will trigger the Bonus Select, which awards 1 pick. You may choose between Free Spins or Catch the Leprechaun Pick Bonus. With Free Spins you get 8 free games, the Pick Bonus consists of a wheel spin that will award 3, 4, or 5 picks. Then the rainbow will appear and rain down leprechauns for you to choose from. Pick your favorite leprechauns to reveal credits.

There’s also the Golden Pot feature, which places empty pots of gold at the bottom of random reels during the base game. If that reel aligns with stacks of gold, they are put into the pot and you win that amount. The gold stack then turns to Wild and can provide additional wins and credits. The big win on this game is the 3 Jackpots. Get 3 or more Rainbow Wild Leprechauns and you’ll win a Jackpot. Three will award the Minor Jackpot, 4 the Major Jackpot, and 5 will grant you the Grand Jackpot, which is 120,000x your bet multiplier, surely as good as a pot of gold.

King's HonourSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM
Bollywood StorySlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM

One of the two new games debuting has a dozen bonus features, more than any other game in recent memory. Find out all about this new slot at NJ online casinos, along with a new entry based on India’s burgeoning film industry.

King’s Honour is our bonus-packed slot that features a base 5×4 reelset, along with a Colossal Reel that has 4 reels that are 12 symbols high, giving you lots of chances at winning spins. The Wild is a big factor here, as anytime it is stacked on the base reels it will also transfer over to the same place on the Colossal Reel.

Amongst the bonus features is King’s Charge, a mystery bonus that is randomly triggered and chooses a symbol and increases the presence of such to create a win. There is the Reel of Honour, triggered by 3+ Bonus symbols, where you’ll spin the reel for either a Free Spins Bonus or a Pot Multiplier Bonus, and the Siege Spin Bonus, which is triggered by 2 Bonus symbols. The real fun is every time 1 or more Bonus symbols appear on the base reel. You’ll get to pick from 5 shields to reveal a special bonus, which has a standard, super and mega feature (based on the number of shields you get). The bonuses include:

  • Wild Arrows – Arrows fired will transform regular symbols into Wilds on the base reel
  • Flaming Wild Arrows – Arrows fired will transform regular symbols into Wilds on the Colossal Reels and award 1 or more respins
  • Wild Reels – Transforms up to 4 Colossal Reels into Wild Reels
  • Extra Free Spins – Awards up to 25 extra spins
  • Black Knight Bonus – Transforms card suits into a higher paying symbol
  • White Knight Bonus – Transforms card suits into Wild, King or Archer
  • Colossal Win Multipliers – Multiplies all Colossal Reel wins
  • Pot Multiplier Bonus – Multiplier the total bet by a multiplier, which will be 50x/150x/500x

Unfortunately, any game that we share will pale in comparison to the aforementioned bonus-rich King’s Honour, but we love the concept of this second game, titled Bollywood Story. It’s an animated attempt to convey the beauty and fun of India’s film industry. With 5 reels and 9 paylines, it is a fairly simple slot featuring 4 Bollywood characters the Logo Wild and 10-Ace.

Here you’ll find Floating Wilds, which can appear during each spin and land on top of regular symbols, turning them into Wilds and significantly increasing your chance for a win. This feature appears in both the base game and during your Free Spins Bonus. The Free Spins Bonus is triggered by 3 or more Scatter symbols. You will be awarded between 10 and 30 spins, based on the number of Scatter symbols that appear on the reels. This bonus can also be retriggered during its course of action.

Silver EnchantressSlotsGolden Nugget
Volcanic Rock Fire Twin FeverSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget

After taking a New Year’s break, several NJ online casinos are beginning to add new slot titles to their array. We’ve got two new ones for you today, both with an appealing 96 percent return-to-player percentage.

Silver Enchantress is a 5-reel slot with 243 ways to win. It has a Racking Up Riches feature, which is similar to Tumbling or Cascading Reels, only better! When you get a winning combination on your reels, all symbols not in that combo fall away and are replaced, giving you a chance at an even bigger win. This action repeats until no additional symbols are added to any winning combo.

Should you tumble 6 or more times, you’ll initiate the Blinking Bucks Bonus. This bonus features 15 options, including credit awards, Jackpot options and Free Games. Hit the Spin button to stop the blinking selection on a random symbol. Then that option is awarded. There’s also a Free Games Bonus that provides for 10 free spins. Just land 3 shields in any position on reels 2/3/4 to test out this feature.

Our second new title is Volcanic Rock Fire Twin Fever, a rather unwieldy name for a fairly simple slot. Here you have 5 reels and 45 paylines. The special feature on this one is the Volcanic Rock Fire, which randomly places extra Wilds on your reels during or after your spin, thereby increasing your chances of winning and the awards themselves. You’ll also find a Free Games feature, which is pretty much ubiquitous on all slots these days.

Legend of the White BuffaloSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM

Time to ride into the new year with two new slots at NJ online casinos. You’ll want to rev up your engines and head down the road to riches with IGT’s Harley Davidson Freedom Tour and saddle up your horse and head to the Plains to find the Legend of the White Buffalo.

You don’t have to be a motorcycle enthusiast to enjoy Harley Davidson Freedom Tour, a 5 reel, 40 payline slot with a high 96.6% return to player. The symbols are all bike-related—Harleys, helmet, jacket, keys—along with a Logo Wild. That Wild is not only useful during reel spins, but takes center stage in the Rumbling Wilds feature that can be triggered randomly after any spin if the Bonus symbol doesn’t land on the 1st reel. You’ll see a big Harley semi pull in front of the reels and transform up to 4 random icons into Wilds.

Also on tap is the Level Up feature, where every Bonus symbol you land that is not part of a win will award you 1 mile. For every 10 miles you accrue, you will move 1 stop on the map and closer to unlocking special features during Bonus play. Bonus play, aka, Road to Riches Bonus, is achieved by landing 3 Bonus symbols on reels 1/3/5. You’ll get one spin of the wheel with the arrow stopping at one prize. As you unlock special features by earning miles, the wedges on the wheel will transform into special bonus games that include:

  • Free Ride Bonus
  • Expanded Top Award
  • Showroom Bonus
  • RPM Multiplier
  • Custom Shop Bonus
  • Bonus Trigger Boost

Also on tap is Legend of the White Buffalo with its unusual 3-4-4-4-3 reelset that has 576 ways to win, and a Power XStream feature, paying left to right and right to left. Symbols include the white buffalo, tomahawk, pottery, Jack-Ace, Wild, Dreamcatcher Bonus, and the logo. The Wild and Bonus symbols appear on reels 2-3-4 only.

You’ll also find Streaming Stacks, where at the start of each spin one symbol can be randomly chose to be stacked on one or more of the center 3 reels, thereby increasing your chances of winning and increasing the amount won. Your Free Spins Bonus requires 3 Bonus symbols to be triggered and will award you with 8 free spins. However, the bonus can be retriggered up to 128 games.
