Archangels: SalvationSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM, Tropicana, Virgin
Dragon's GemsSlotsCaesars

Mythical creatures are the subject of two new games that made their debut on NJ online casinos this week. Archangels will have you battling for Heaven and Hell, while you’ll have to past the Chinese fucanglong to earn the treasure it is guarding.

In Archangels: Salvation, you have plenty to play for, as the return to player is 96.08% and the maximum payout is a whopping $750,000, very rare amongst online slots. The game features Hot Spots, which when combined with Wilds will get you to the Heaven or Hell features, both of which earn you multiple Wilds for big wins. There is also a Free Spins bonus game where Stacked Wilds appear and your Hot Spots increase.

With Dragon’s Gems, you’ll face off with the fucanglong, a mythical Chinese dragon who closely guards buried treasure. This slot features Win Spins, meaning every spin will generate a win. There are also Wilds, which double a winning payling, Multipliers, and a Free Spins bonus game where you get to choose from 3 different options for play: 16 spins + 2x multiplier, 8 spins with 4x multiplier, or 4 spins with 8x multiplier. And, each spin is guaranteed a win during this round as well.

Celestial KingSlotsGolden Nugget
Joker 10000 DeluxeSlotsCaesars
Wilds DeluxeSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget

The new games showing up at NJ online casinos is quite diverse this week, featuring a very simple slot with no bonus features, an old-school looking slot with a super bet feature that can pay big rewards, and one that features an adorable monkey and multiple jackpots. Let’s take a look….

Celestial King has an ethereal Asian theme with a background of pagodas set above the clouds. Our Celestial King is a wide-eyed monkey who acts as both the Wild and the Jackpot Wild symbols. Symbols are varied and include dollar amounts, which can add to your wins. Also available are four jackpots. The Grand Jackpot is won by getting 5 or more Jackpot Wilds with $4 or more bet. The three smaller jackpots—Mini, Minor, and Major—can be won during the Celestial King Re-Spin feature. This is triggered by 5 or more scatter symbols, which then changes the reel configuration to 3-4-5-6-7. All Scatters are locked in place during the re-spins. If at the end of the spins all positions in columns 3, 4 or 5 are filled with Scatter symbols, you are awarded the corresponding jackpot.

Next up is Joker Deluxe, a game that cues up like you are sitting in an actual casino. The full slot machine is visible, from the top section with symbols and payout amounts, to the reels themselves. There are only 5 symbols on a 3×3 reel set with 5 paylines, and you must get 3 of a kind to pay. There is also a Joker, which requires just 2 for a win, and they can be located anywhere on the reels. The more Jokers, the higher the pay. There is also a complicated Supermeter feature and a more typical Gamble feature, providing a bit of excitement and extra layer of chance,

Wilds Deluxe is a rather simplistic game from BetDigital. Wins are awarded for 3 or more of a kind that are adjacent, be it left to right, right to left or middle. Symbols include a gold pocketwatch, strand of emeralds, silver coins, gold bars, jewelry box, sapphire, ruby and diamond. There is also a vault that serves as the Wild and substitutes for any of the symbols. If this Wild shows up on the middle reel, the vault will open and reveal a multiplier to add to your winnings. There are no Free Spins bonus game or other features.

FlameSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget
King Kong FurySlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget

From a sexy redhead to one of movie’s most famous characters, this week’s new slot additions to NJ online casinos have some cool features and multiple bonuses. Flame is the name of the first slot, which features our femme fatale, along with Expanding Wilds, a Free Spins Bonus Round and 7 mini-features. Those mini-features include:

  • Fire Whirl: win bonus prizes
  • Spontaneous Combustion: Win upgraded symbols
  • Cross Flare: pays both directions
  • Wild Inferno: held Wild re-spins
  • Firestorm: Wild and bonus merged
  • Flare Up: wins are multiplied up to 10x
  • Live Embers: Guaranteed Wilds

If you’re a fan of King Kong movies, you’ll love the second entry this week: King Kong Fury. Based on the original 1933 movie and taking place on Skull Island (a nod to a more current blockbuster movie), this game features Raging Re-Spins and Lightning Reels, in addition to Kong’s Call and a Free Spins Bonus Game. The Lightning Reels are prime, as during those spins all playing card symbols are removed and you are left with just the island’s inhabitants—dinosaurs. This makes wins much more accessible. In the Bonus game, you’ll find stacked symbols, including Wilds, making for some incredible wins, just make sure you avoid the wrath of Kong!

Elephant KingSlotsGolden Nugget, playMGM
HotlineSlotsGolden Nugget, Tropicana, Virgin, Mohegan Sun, playMGM, Resorts

Two new games have debuted on NJ online casinos in recent days. One will take you to the African savannah, while the other uses a teleporter to take you back to the 1980s.

First up is Elephant King, an IGT creation with elephants, rhinos, zebras and gazelles acting as symbols. There’s a special Wild Elephant that awards a Prize Disk feature (bonus win, free spins or extra wins). These prizes are 500X to 10,000X your bet and are on a rotation above the reels. Each spin, they rotate once to the left. If you hit the Wild Elephant, you win the prize that is above it on the reels. There’s also a Wild symbol (shield) that appears on reels 2, 3 and 4. Also of note is the max payout on this slot, which is a whopping $800,000!

The second new slot is Hotline. Open up this game and it cues a city scene and opening credits of a TV show, a la Miami Vice. You’re introduced to two detectives reminiscent of Crocket and Tubbs, and their jewel thief nemesis, a beautiful woman in a fast car sporting an ancient cell phone that most thirty-somethings wouldn’t even remember. This game features the typical Scatter—which awards 7 Free Spins—as well as a Wild. The real treat with this game is the Hotline Bonus Bet. Players automatically have the center line activated as a Hotline, meaning that should a Wild hit, it will become an Expanding Wild and will remain through as many re-spins that award a win. Additionally, you can add Hotlines by clicking on the symbol to the left of the first or third line. Each time you do this it will increase your bet. Add one Hotline, and it doubles your bet; add two Hotlines and it will triple your bet. While this is costly, I’ve seen some fantastic wins that can make it worthwhile.

The Big EasySlotsBorgata, playMGM

Leading up to the big Memorial Day weekend, only one new slot title has made its debut on NJ online casino sites. But it will transport you to New Orleans, where the food is tasty and the jazz is lively.

The Big Easy, a product of Spielo, features all things NOLA— seafood platter, tumbler of bourbon, musical poster as well as instruments, a jazz singer and trumpet player. The neon Big Easy sign serves as the Wild, while the crescent moon is the Scatter symbol.

The Wild not only helps to complete paylines, but 3 or more on a payline also provides an additional bonus. Three or more Scatter symbols take you directly to the Free Spins Bonus Game. You’ll start off in the French Quarter where you choose a Jazz Club—this will determine your free spins (8-25). Then you head inside the club to choose an instrument—this will determine your multiplier (2X-10X). Then spin away for some Big Easy wins!

RawhideSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts

There’s been a bit of a slowdown on new games launched at NJ online casinos in the last few days. One new slot has debuted at both Mohegan Sun and Resorts: Rawhide.

Rawhide is a Konami/Spin Games creation with a Wild West theme. It has 5 reels and 30 paylines, with bet levels ranging from a low 30 cents up to a high of $300, making it suitable for players of all levels. You’ll find regular symbols—including a cowboy, bag of gold, wagon, windmill and 9-Ace—as well as Action Stacked Symbols, which can help make for some big wins. The Reward Poster serves as the Wild, while the Sheriff’s Star serves as the Scatter symbol.

Three or more Scatter symbols trigger the Free Spins Bonus Game, where you will get 10-25 spins. All spins during this round pay double (2X). The feature can also be retriggered.

In addition to the Rawhide slot, these two casinos also added several newer games that had already debuted elsewhere: Ghostbusters Spectral Search and Wheel of Fortune Winning Words—both of which are scratchcard-type slots—as well as Lotus Land, an Asian-themed slot with a generous Free Spins Bonus Game.

Luck o' the IrishSlotsBorgata, playMGM

Head to the land of the Leprechauns with this week’s new slot available on NJ online casinos. Luck o’ the Jackpot is our featured new slot of the day, a fun progressive game with 5 jackpots!

This slot has both an unusual reelset and payout system. The reels are set up in a 2-2-3-4-4 configuration and pays for symbols that are on adjacent lines, rather than the typical paylines. In fact, there are 192 different ways to pay on this slot, which features a variety of Irish icons: four-leaf clover, Leprechaun hat, pot of gold, and a bottle of whiskey for good measure. There is also a Wild and Scatter symbol.

Three or more Scatter symbols will take you to the Free Spins bonus game. You’ll first enter a cave full of whiskey barrels. You will choose three, which will provide you with the number of free spins and multipliers. There are also 5 progressive jackpots available, which in order of importance are: Blitz Cash Jackpot, Quick Cash Jackpot, Super Cash Jackpot, Mega Cash Jackpot, and Colossal Cash Jackpot.

Note: At this point in time, the Colossal Cash Jackpot was over $2,392,000!

ExcaliburSlotsBetfair, Caesars, Golden Nugget, playMGM
SpellcastSlotsBetfair, Caesars, Golden Nugget, playMGM

Four NJ online casinos have added two new NetEnt games in the last few days, both of which give a nod to the mystical. First, there is Excalibur, a game that harkens back to Medieval England and the Knights of the Round Table. You’ll recognize King Arthur, and the magical duo of Merlin and Morgana, among other characters. The famous sword Excalibur serves as the regular Wild, and there is also a golden version of the sword that makes up a Golden Wild, where all pays are 4x. The Scatter symbol is a Golden Chalice, and get 3 or more and you’ll be awarded 10+ spins, with all wins at 3x.

Our second slot is Spellcast, with symbols that include a spellbook, magic wand, castle and magic potion. The Wizard is the Wild, with all wins at 2x, and a Crystal Ball is the Scatter. Get 3 or more of the latter and you’ll have 15 free spins with all wins tripled.

Both games are very simple, with 5 reels and 20 paylines, and an approximate return to player (RTP) of 96%. Max payouts can be large, with Spellcast at $320,000 and Excalibur at $400,000.

Black DiamondSlotsGolden Nugget

While there has only been one brand new game added at NJ online casinos in the last few days, one casino has been busy pumping up their gaming library. Mohegan Sun has added almost 25 new titles in the last week alone, including favorites like:

  • Double Diamond
  • Ghostbusters
  • Coyote Moon
  • Da Vinci Diamonds
  • Siberian Storm

Golden Nugget online casino has our one new title: Black Diamond. This is another Everi slot with a retro feel, much like their addition last week (Smokin’ Hot Gems – see description in May 3rd update below). Visually it looks like 1950s one-arm bandit with single and double Bars, red single 7, gold double 77 and blue triple 777. The Black Diamond is the Wild. You’ll find that some of the symbols will randomly land with extra multipliers (2-5x). Two or more multipliers on a payline will multiply together, and a 30x multiplier is possible. This slot also has progressive jackpots, although they really aren’t for the average slot player, as they require a max bet of $135. The Minor Jackpot requires 8 Black Diamonds on lines 1-8, while the Major Jackpot requires 9 Black Diamonds (every space filled with this symbol).

The Legend of BigfootSlotsGolden Nugget
Ocean MagicSlotsBetfair
Smokin' Hot GemsSlotsGolden Nugget

A trio of new slots have been teed up on various NJ online casino sites this week for your enjoyment. You can stalk Bigfoot in the Cascades, dive the oceans for sea creatures, or take it old school like Grandma. Let’s take a look….

First up is The Legend of Bigfoot, a new game from SG Interactive. This fun take on Sasquatch features a bevy or forest wildlife, as well as the Jack-Ace. Bigfoot himself serves as the Wild, while the Scatter symbol is simply labeled Bigfoot. During the game, you may get some Bigfoot Sightings, which will award extra bonuses like free spins, extra Wilds or a reel of Wilds. The Free Spins bonus round, achieved through three Bigfoot symbols on reels 1/3/5, initially offers 8 free spins. But for every Bigfoot symbol you land, you progress along a trail. Every 3 steps on the trail adds more free spins and an additional multiplier, which can make for some big wins.

If you’d rather do some deep sea diving, then head to play Ocean Magic by gamemaker IGT. You’ll see all manner of sea life, from turtles and jellyfish to seahorses, along with the Wild and a treasure chest that serves as the Scatter. The special Bubble Feature has air bubbles floating up from the bottom of the reels. Once a bubble lands that symbol will turn into a Wild or a special Wild. The special Wild has a symbol with the game name on it and it can turn the adjacent symbols into Wilds for big wins. This slot also has a Free Spins round, achieved through landing 3 or more of the treasure chests.

Finally, there is Smokin’ Hot Gems, a very retro game that looks just like the one-arm bandits your grandma used to play back in the day, complete with bells, bars and 7s. The big difference is the 3 types of Wilds, which help with basic wins. However, should you get 3 of a kind, the stakes get much bigger. Three Topaz Wilds on a payline wins the 3rd tier Progressive Jackpot, three Ruby Wilds win the 2nd tier and three Diamond Double Wilds wins the 1st tier. Get a mixture of these three on any payline to win the 4th tier progressive jackpot.

Hula NightsSlotsBetfair, Caesars, Golden Nugget
Hula Hula NightsSlotsSugarHouse

SG Interactive just released a new game that is available at four NJ online casinos. It is listed as Hula Nights on three and Hula Hula Nights on one of the sites, but the games are the same. With 5 reels and 10 paylines, the bets start at a low 10 cents and go all the way up to $500. The theme is very much Hawaiian, with hula girls, exotic flowers, plus the 10-Ace as symbols. A tiki mask serves as the Wild, while the Hula Nights symbols acts as a Scatter. What is unique about the game is the Green Reels, which may appear on any spin and on more than one reel. Once the reels have stopped, a single symbol will appear on all green reels, giving you increased odds of making a win.

Per usual, 3 or more Scatters awards Free Spins (10-25). During the Free Spins bonus game, these same green reels may appear but will have a mystery symbol that turns into a cash prize. If a Collect symbol also appears, you collect each and every cash prize. Should more than one Collect symbol appear, you collect the cash prizes for every one. Needless to say, this can lead to some really big wins. Even better is that during the Free Spins, if you get 3 or more Collect symbols, you are awarded additional spins (10-25).

Asgardian StonesSlotsGolden Nugget
Big Prize BubblegumSlotsGolden Nugget
Dancing DrumsSlotsGolden Nugget

Golden Nugget NJ online casino is really on a roll, adding quite a few new slots this week. We’ll give you the skinny on three of them here today, each one quite different from the next.

Up first is Asgardian Stones, a NetEnt slot that delves into mythology. Enter the barren landscape with Stonehenge-like structures that lead to a fortress city, which I assume is Asgard. The symbols in this game are chiseled in stone, from the 5 faces and Ace/King/Queen symbols to the W in the Wild symbol. The reels don’t spin but instead rely on an Avalanche feature, where they rain down from the top. A win will cause the symbols to explode, triggering new symbols to rain down. Some symbols will show as Colossal 2×2 or 3×3 grids. These Colossal symbols can be included in a win, but if they aren’t, and they need to move down, they may just crush a single symbol or two and increase the multiplier for the next Avalanche. There is a Bonus Wheel, which occurs in a 3×3 grid on reels 3, 4 and 5. Get an Avalanche and trigger the wheel to win free games or a cash prize.

Next we go from the mature world of mythology to a childhood love: bubblegum. On Big Prize Bubblegum, the reels are placed within a gumball machine and symbols rain down from the top of the bowl. Symbols include 9-Ace, 5 colorful bubblegum balls, and a Wild. There are also 3 coins that award bonus games and if one appears it is put into the gumball slot and the Free Spins bonus game begins. You can retrigger free spins, up to a maximum of 100. There is also a Toy Bonus feature, where you can win additional cash prizes. One toy, the Tetris puzzle, sends you to the Pick Until You Pop bonus. The name says it all….

Our final entry is Dancing Drums, featuring all things Asian. Symbols include a Fu dog, gold Chinese coin, Chinese junk, a golden bowl and flowers, plus the 9-Ace. The drum acts as a Scatter and there is also a gold/red Wild symbol. Three or more scatters, starting on reel 1 and on a winning payline, take you to the Free Spins bonus game, where you will have 5 options to choose from. These include 15 spiins on a 3×5 grid up to 3 spins on a 6×5 grid, plus a Mystery Pick. There are also 4 jackpots which can be won through the Fu Babies Jackpot Bonus. This is a randomly assigned bonus based on the gold Wilds you collect along the way.

Slingo Reel ExtremeSlotsGolden Nugget
Slingo FortunesSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

Two new slots have made its debut on NJ online casinos this week and they are both new versions of Slingo, the slot/bingo hybrid. Slingo was introduced in 2017 with Slingo Extreme, Slingo Riches, Slingo Reel Bonus and Slingo Showdown. In March, Slingo XXXtreme was introduced. Now we have Slingo Reel Extreme and Slingo Fortune.

Slingo Reel Extreme departs from the bingo format of most of the games. What you get here are 5 reels. Symbols include a devil, angel and two Slingo Jokers, plus the 10-Ace. There is also a Wild symbol, which doubles your win. The final symbol is the Bonus. Each bet buys you 5 linked spins. During this time you can accumulate Bonus symbols. Get 3 or more to enter the Win Spins Bonus. (And if you are close, you can buy additional spins.) During the Win Spins Bonus, you are offered your choice of spin/multiplier combos. For example, get 3 Bonus symbols and you can choose 16 spins x2, 8 spins x4 or 4 spins x8. All spins generate a win during this round.

With Slingo Fortunes, you get a 5×5 bingo grid. Each square contains a red envelope, in a nod to Asian culture. There are a total of 26 envelopes, and you must pick one to be kept out until the end of the game. Each envelope contains a cash prize. The goal is to get rid of the envelopes with the lowest cash prizes. Each bet gets you 10 spins, and each spin places a number at the top of each column. Match the number to an envelope and the prize is revealed and removed from the grid. A Slingo occurs if you open 5 envelopes in a row diagonally, vertically or horizontally. Watch out for the Devil, as he can block a potential match, while the Jokers and Super Jokers can open any envelope in a column or the whole grid, respectively.

Acorn PixieSlotsGolden Nugget
Monopoly Mega MoversSlotsGolden Nugget
Olympus ThunderSlotsGolden Nugget

Golden Nugget is on a roll this week, adding another 3 games to its already burgeoning gaming library. Let’s take a look at what they now have to offer…

Acorn Pixie plays off the mythical creature of folklore. You’ll find a Wild pixie, Bonus pixie, plus 3 ordinary pixies (are any of them really ordinary though?), forest mushrooms, a ladybug, firefly, pixie slippers and 2 flower symbols. That Wild pixie can at times turn into a Cluster Wild, adding a 2×2 grid of Wild symbols to your reel. As for the Acorn Pixie Bonus, you must get 3 scattered Bonus symbols to play this game. You’ll get 7 free spins on an expanded reelset (5×6). During the bonus game, golden acorns will land on random squares, revealing the background and turning into a Wild. These become Sticky Wilds and remain the rest of the bonus spins. There is also a Buy a Bonus option where 6 Bonus games—along with the expanded reelset—cost $20, 8 games costs $40 and 12 games cost $100. During this bonus round more Wilds are added, meaning there is potential to win big here.

We also have another version of Monopoly, this time called Monopoly Mega Movers. This game features lots of game pieces, including T Rex, penguin, duck, cat Scotty dog, battleship, racecar, train, and top hat. Add to that Mr. Monopoly and a Wild, and you have a lot of symbols to try and match. Wilds only appear of reels 2, 3 and 4, but occasionally they pop up as Directional Wilds. These special Wilds have one or more arrows, and the Wild will expand in that direction, increasing your chance to win. While there is no Free Spins bonus game, there is an Extra Bet Wheel feature, which will cost you 150% of your bet. When this feature is activated, if you get 3, 4 or 5 backgrounds appearing on adjacent reels, you will be awarded a spin on the corresponding wheel. You can win an upgrade (spin of the next highest wheel), random Wilds, Free Spins or a Jackpot, of which there are five: Mini, Minor Major, Mega and Grand.

Olympus Thunder, out of NYX Gaming, is a pretty standard slot, easy to learn and play. The reelset sits on the clouds high atop Mt. Olympus. It features Pan, Athena, a harp, jug of wine and the 9-Ace as symbols, along with a Zeus Wild and Thunder Bonus symbol. If that Zeus Wild lands on reel three is becomes an Expanded Wild and awards you with 3 free respins. There’s also the Olympus Bonus, achieved by getting 3 Thunder Bonus symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4. Match 3 coins to reveal your prize, which can range from 5 free games with 2x multiplier to 20 free games with a 3x multiplier.

Huolong ValleySlotsGolden Nugget
Fat Cat ClassixSlotsGolden Nugget
Twin Spin DeluxeSlotsBetfair

A trio of new games is now available on NJ online casinos for your playing enjoyment. Just in time to take your mind of paying your taxes today. Over at Golden Nugget we have Huolong Valley and Fat Cat Classix, while Betfair added Twin Spin Deluxe.

Huolong Valley is an Asian-inspired slot from NXY Gaming. A brightly rendered backdrop sets the stage for symbols in their multicolor glory. While it makes for a very busy reel set, the symbols stay true to the culture. There is a dragon, panda, koi fish and crane, along with lucky number 8 in five different colors—red, green, gold, purple, and blue. A decorative mask serves as the Wild, while a fan acts as the Scatter. The bonus symbol is a Chinese paper lantern, 3 or more of which take you to the Free Games feature. Here you choose from coins to pick your spins and your multiplier. All wins during this round that include a Wild are doubled and it can be retriggered.

Fat Cat Classix is a game based on a fat cat decked out like an OG rapper, chains and all. This same cat acts as the Wild, while a $ is the Scatter symbol. It’s not a true “scatter,” as you must have 3 dollar signs on a payline, starting on line 1, to get to the Free Games bonus. There’s also a Fat Cat Bonus, which is triggered by the symbol appearing on reels 1 and 5. Match any of the prizes during this round to win and if a multiplier is revealed, your cash amount is multiplied by that number.

NetEnt is the creator behind Twin Spin Deluxe. This game has 6 reels, but instead of regular paylines uses Cluster Pays. Nine or more symbols linked horizontally, vertically or adjacent compose a winning cluster. Each spin starts with two of the six reels being identical, hence the Twin Spin name. During the spin those two reels can expand to become 3, 4, 5, or 6 adjacent reels, making for some nice wins.

Luck O' the JackpotSlotsPlayMGM

While NJ online casinos have been adding games in the past week, most were older titles that fit well into their gaming libraries. There is one new slot this week though, Luck O’ the Jackpot is now available at playMGM.

The symbolism is unmistakable, with pots of gold, a bottle of Irish whiskey, shamrock, horseshoe, Leprechaun’s hat, 10-Ace, Wild (Leprechaun) and Scatter. That’s a lot of symbols, when you have such an unusual reel set, and symbols can be difficult to match.

The Free Spins bonus game is achieved by getting 3 or more Scatter symbols. The game starts with a trip to the wine cave where you choose 3 of the 9 barrels. Each barrel will provide you with free spins and multipliers. Even better, the bonus game can be retriggered.

This is a progressive game, and as of this writing, the jackpot sits at $2,344,300—not which is pretty impressive for a slot.

In the last week, playMGM also added Wealthy Monkey, Wings of the Phoenix, Imperial Wealth, Golden Wolves, Wonder Rose, Heart of Romance and Fortune Stacks.

Color CubesSlotsGolden Nugget
Monkey DropSlotsGolden Nugget
The VoiceSlotsGolden Nugget

Golden Nugget has added three new games from IGT that are unlike any slot we’ve seen on NJ online casinos. There are no reels, no paylines, bet limits are low and traditional Wild, Scatter and Free Spins bonus games don’t exist. So what are they? Let’s find out…

Color Cubes is a game that must have made its way across the pond, as on the face of it, the title uses the British spelling: Colour Cubes. Much like the recently added Tetris Super Jackpots, this game is based on an arcade-style game. Cubes with exploding bombs, similarly colored cubes filling rows…all are reminiscent of Nintendo offerings that became popular worldwide. With this game you have a 7×7 grid and you buy a “Ticket.” Each ticket gets you 10 turns, during which each turn takes out a square on the grid. If you pinpoint a cube that has adjacent matching cubes, you collect all of them. If you pinpoint a bomb, you collect all the cubes adjacent to the bomb. Pinpoint a star and win an instant cash prize. Amass a specific number of colored cubes to win a prize. It’s as simple as that.

The second offering is Monkey Drop, a Plinko-style game, where you drop balls down a pegged board and they land in a slot at the bottom. There are 6 colored slots at the bottom, plus a center slot. You choose your bet amount, click on “DROP” or the monkey and watch as he drops balls into the slot. You’ll get 7 chances to get 3 balls in one of the 6 slots, which will equate to a win. If a ball lands in the center space, you go to a bonus round to choose any sleeping monkey and win a cash prize. Just a little monkeying around here….

The last game is based on the popular reality show The Voice. Here you will find 6 judge’s chairs, each a different color. Each one has a corresponding value. For a $1 bet, these values range from $1 to $15,000. Make your bet and hit the PLAY button. You get 7 turns for each bet. Each time you hit PLAY, 1 to 4 of the chairs will release a musical note. If it is a single note, you will fill in one step to a win; a double note gives you 2 steps toward a win. After the 7 rounds, if the chair’s prize column is fully lit, or if the chair releases an instant prize, you win. Winners are rewarded with cash and the show’s signature tag line, “This is the Voice,” sung in perfect harmony.

Triple Cash WheelSlotsGolden Nugget
Let's SoccerSlotsBorgata, playMGM

Lots of action at NJ online casinos since our last update. We have two new games debuting, one casino adding 18 games to their library, and an expansion of Virtual Sports.

First up are the newbies: Triple Cash Wheel and Let’s Soccer. SG Interactive is the creator of Triple Cash Wheel, a combination of old-school slots and Wheel of Fortune. You have single, double and triple 7s, single Bar, Bar/5, Bells and Cherries. There’s also the Wild, Scatter, and QuickHit symbols. Above your 5 reels sit three Cash Wheels. At the completion of any spin, these may randomly activate. If all 3 are activated, you’ll move to the Cash Wheel Bonus Game. This starts by selecting a ? mark tile from the grid. You will continue selecting until 3 matching symbols appear, which will determine your number of spins and the multiplier. Then the wheel will spin, awarding you cash or Free Games. Our other bonus feature is the QuickHit symbol, where 3 or more pay and you can get up to 1500x your bet if you hit 9!

Let’s Soccer plays off the sports theme, with symbols including players, cleats, and a soccer ball, as well as the 10-Ace. The Wild and Scatter (trophy) are also in play here. Three or more Scatter symbols trigger the Free Game feature. For every spin during this bonus round, a player will kick the soccer ball at the reels and should he hit any symbol, that symbol will turn into a Wild. Even better, it is a Sticky Wild, remaining until the end of your free spins.

Meanwhile, over at Betfair online casino, they went big in the last few days, adding 18 titles to their expanding game lineup. While none are brand new, they did add standards like King Kong, Oil Mania and Bingo Billions.

And for those of you who are enjoying Virtual Sports (Cars, Motorcycles, Horses, Greyhounds, and Soccer), there are now 8 NJ online casinos offering this new form of gambling. You can check them out at the following online venues:

The two most recent slots to make their way onto NJ online casinos have a throwback element to them, but are made fresh and new with some great graphics and unique features.

Fruit Spins, the latest from NetEnt, features bedazzled fruit. You’ll find mouth-watering cherries, raspberries, boysenberries, pomegranates and limes, along with single, double and triple bars, and a bar/7 combo. There are no Wilds in regular play, but the Scatters appear in a 3×3 grid. If any part of the grid appears then you trigger the Lucky Wheels feature, which can payout cash awards and lead you to the Free Spins bonus round. Here you will find Wilds appearing in a 3×3 grid, making for some spectacular wins.

Then there is Tetris Super Jackpots, a slot based on the game of the same name that gained popularity back in the late 1980s on game consoles like Atari, Sega and Nintendo. The symbols are all Tetris game pieces in varying colors and configurations, as well as 10-Ace. Like Fruit Spins, there are no Wilds to be seen. But there is a Tetrimino feature that randomly kicks in adding additional lines of one symbol to some or all of the reels, making winning combinations easier to achieve. The Scatter is in play on reels 2-3-4 and you’ll need 3 to move on to the Free Spins bonus round, which has a complicated play pattern. Also available are three Jackpots. The Mini is 50x your total stake, Minor is 250x your total stake, and the Major is 2500x total stake.

WonderHoundsSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget
Crowning GlorySlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget

Golden Nugget and Caesars NJ online casinos have added two new slots to their lineup so far this week, and both with very decent return-to-player percentages (above 96%).

The first is WonderHounds, a fun slot featuring three distinctly different dogs. There’s Ace, the American fighter pilot, Winchester with British Sherlock Holmes garb, and Jinse, the lone female dressed to represent the Far East. You’ll also find the bowl of dog biscuits, a dog tag symbol and the 10-Ace. That’s a lot of symbols, making it a bit difficult to get a match. But there are Wilds and a WonderHound Gone Wild Bonus, where on any spin one WinderHound may become Wild, per reel. The typical Scatter and Free Spins bonus game are also in play

Next up is Crowning Glory, a game by BetDigital, a company well known in the UK and Europe. Bets are small on this game, from $.20 to $20, but the max payout is a whopping $430,000. Symbols include a ruby, sapphire and emerald, crown and the 10-Ace. There are no Wilds, but symbols can expand to 3 reels high and 3 reels wide, making for some nice wins. The Royal Reel Bonus is randomly triggered and will display a 10-position wheel. Once the spinning stops the highlighted symbol is transferred to the reels and placed in 5 positions to increase your chance for a win. If you hit the Bonus crown, the Free Spins game begins. You can also achieve the Free Games bonus with 3 or more Bonus crowns on a payline during regular play. You are awarded 12 free spins. During the free spins, an extra spin is awarded for each additional Bonus crown that lands on the reels.

Gong Xi Fa CaiSlotsBetfair, Golden Nugget

Only one new game to report today, but there are a few casinos that are bulking up their game libraries, so stay tuned for those details.

First, the new slot title: Gong Xi Fa Cai. This celebration of Chinese New Year is a great game for beginners and low-level players. Bets range from 75 cents to $15, surprisingly low by today’s standards, with a maximum payout of $37,500. There are four main symbols (dragon, phoenix, fish and lion), as well as the traditional 10-Ace. There are Multiplier Sub-symbols, a Dynamic Symbol Replacement feature, Free Spins bonus game, and a Lucky Fortune Progressive Picker with 4 progressive jackpots. There’s a lot to like about this game, with 50 paylines, multiple features, and a catchy tune playing in the background.

Meanwhile two casinos are stacking the deck, so to speak. Pala Casino has added six titles to their arsenal, some newer ones that we’ve detailed in this New Games section before (Great Tiger, High Voltage Blackout), as well as some industry classics (Royal Elephant and Mata Hari). But the bigger news is Betfair, which added a baker’s dozen of new titles, including the aforementioned Gong Xi Fa Cai. Also new to the site are Charms and Witches, Jack’s Beanstalk, Spin Lab, and Merlin’s Magic Respins, among others. This addition comes after a monster February when they added dozens of slots to their game library, and their slot count now numbers over 300.

Monopoly in the HandSlotsTropicana, Virgin
Monopoly on the MoneySlotsBorgata, playMGM
Dragon WinsSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts

Three new slots debuted on NJ online casinos this week, two based on the popular Monopoly board game and one featuring dragons and multiple bonus features.

Monopoly Money in the Hand and Monopoly on the Money are both from Barcrest and have very similar features, with the former being exclusive to Virgin and Tropicana online casinos. Monopoly Money in Hand features 5 reels and 243 paylines, while Monopoly on the Money only has 5 reels and 10 paylines. Both feature Mr. Monopoly (aka Rich Uncle Pennybags), top hat, cat, dog and 3 different stacks of cash, each with a multiplier attached. There are Wild and Scatter symbols, as well as a Free Spins bonus game that comes with a Chance Card bonus at the end. You’ll also find the Big Bet option on both, where you can pay to play, although it will cost you from $20 to $50 for the 5 spins. Each spin contains persistent Scatters and Wilds, and the more you spend, the more extras you get.

If board games aren’t of interest, then test out Dragon Wins, a new slot from NexGen. You won’t find the typical scary looking dragon with glowing red eyes intent on doing harm, but instead this slot utilizes cute little baby dragons in brighter colors drawn more like a cartoon and breathing darts of fire. Reels are set on a stone tablet in an unusual 3-4-5-4-3 configuration and symbols include your 4 dragons, 5 jewels of varying colors and shapes, along with the typical Wild and Scatter. The game features a Free Spins round, where you will find more reels and more Wilds available, and Dragon Spins. The latter bonus is achieved when you fill a dragon’s meter and the bonuses that appear change depending on which dragon’s meter is full. Even better, our tiny dragons may breathe fire to repeat your dragon wins 3, 5, or 10 times.

Treasures from the GodsSlotsTropicana, Virgin
Slingo XXXTremeSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, SugarHouse

Two new slots are in place and ready for your enjoyment at NJ online casinos. Treasures from the Gods, exclusive to Tropicana and Virgin, is the perfect game for beginners. It has 5 reels and only 9 paylines, although they pay both ways. Bets range from 9 cents to $45, with the max payout being 10,000x your bet. The slot pulls from the ancient gods and features Aphrodite, Ares, Athena, Hades and Zeus, along with the more common 10-Ace symbols. Zeus pays with only 1 symbol in the first position, while several of the other gods pay out with just 2 symbols on a payline. The Wild (Golden Griffin) shows up frequently which helps, and if you get just 2 Scatters (Thunderbolt) on a payline, they pay as well.

Also on hand is the newest Slingo offering: Slingo XXXTreme. This slot/bingo hybrid plays on a 5×5 grid. Each spin provides for 11 number drawings (5 per drawing) to potentially fill your Slingo grid. You goal is to get 5 adjacent squares marked off either horizontally vertically or diagonally for a win. Jokers act similarly to Wilds and allow you to mark off any number of your choice in the column in which it lands, while Super Jokers allow you to mark off a number in any column. There’s also a Free Spin—where you get an extra spin and a cash prize—and the Devil, who blocks a match. Bonus: If you come close to a win at the end of the 11 spins, you have the option of purchasing additional spins to finish up a line and make a win.

Pay of the DeadSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, SugarHouse
Sword of DestinySlotsGolden Nugget
Wild Wild GemsSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, SugarHouse

A trio of new slots has made their way onto NJ online casinos this week. They range from a retro-style game with few features to a new offering from SG Interactive that is full of features, with a little bit of South of the Border humor thrown in.

Wild Wild Gems takes it old school with a 3-reel slot and only 9 paylines. Symbols are nothing more than single, double and triple 7s and single and double Bars, as well as a Wild Jackpot (Sapphire) and a 2x Wild Jackpot (Ruby). There is no Scatter, no Free Spins, no extra features. This is a very simplistic retro game that your grandparents would have played back in the day, which makes it kinda fun to play.

On the other end of the spectrum is Sword of Destiny, which has multiple symbols—flask, metal glove, necklace, scroll and a castle, as well as 3 personas—Evil Knight, Sword Man and Sword Lady (yes, that’s what they’re called!). You’ll find a jewel-encrusted sword that acts as the Wild, which can become an Expanded Wild or a Clumped Wild thanks to several of the four features that can be triggered in the base game. Should you get three Golden Coins, you will trigger the Temple Tower Jackpot, an unusual bonus round that contains a ladder with 16 steps containing cash prizes and 3 jackpots.

Finally, we have Gaming Realms’ Pay of the Dead, a fun take on Dia de los Muertos, Mexico’s Day of the Dead. This colorful slot has mariachi music in the background and features a Chihuahua as the Wild. There’s also a Lucha Libre-inspired Chihuahua that is a Special Wild and when it hits it will randomly assign a multiplier to your win, from 2x to 10x. There is also a Free Spins round and a Red Hot Respin feature. Buena Suerte!

Lotus LandSlotsBorgata, playMGM
Diamond BonanzaSlotsTropicana, Virgin

We’ll end the week with two new games available on NJ online casinos. The first is a Konami release titled Lotus Land. It plays on symbols representative of various Asian cultures, such as a golden elephant, cobra, tiger, parasol, and princess, as well as 9 through Ace. These symbols can show up solo or stacked within reels. A blue orb serves as the Wild symbol—available on reels 2, 3, and 4 only—while the lotus is the Scatter. Three or more Scatters lead to the Free Spins bonus round. During your free spins, the Wild orb transforms from its traditional blue color and adds a multiplier. Green orbs are 2x, yellow are 3x, purple are 4x and the red is 5x your line bet.

The second game is geared toward those players who like simplicity. Diamond Bonanza is visually appealing, with an Art Deco theme running throughout, from background to music to the very symbols themselves. While this slot only has 5 paylines, there are also only 5 symbols, with three of those five paying out for just 2 in a row. There is no bonus game here, but this is a progressive slot. The progressive jackpot can be won by getting 3 diamonds on the 5th reel, hence the name Diamond Bonanza.

Sweet HawaiiSlotsBorgata, playMGM
Gypsy RichesSlotsSugarHouse

Two new slots made their way onto NJ online casinos this week, both featuring exotic women. In Sweet Hawaii, a 5 reel/9 payline slot from bwin.party, the Hula Girls are your Wild symbol and trigger a bonus feature. During your free spins, should your dancing Hula Girl hit on the center reel, it will trigger the Hot Hula feature. During this feature, all the symbols on that reel will transform into a hula girl and will substitute for all symbols. There’s also the Volcano feature, which can trigger a Cash Eruption free spins bonus round. Here you choose a volcano to determine the number of spins and a second volcano to determine your bonus symbol. Every time that bonus symbol appears on your free spins, you can get up top 100x your bet and all wins are doubled.

Also on tap is Gypsy Riches, a new title from Wild Streak Gaming. This slot features 5 reels and 25 paylines, as well as Stacked symbols, including the Gypsy Wild. A Gypsy Caravan acts as the Scatter, leading players to the Free Spins round. During this round, every Wild adds to the Crystal Ball Meter. Fill up the meter and earn Gold Spins, where you can win the Crystal Ball Meter multiple times, increasing your bonus win.

Finn and the Swirly SpinSlotsBetfair, Borgata, Golden Nugget, Tropicana, Virgin, playMGM
BaywatchSlotsBetfair, Borgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM

If you’re ready for something totally new, you need to check out Finn and the Swirly Spin, the latest game to hit NJ online casinos. This slot, from innovating gamemaker NetEnt, is unlike anything you’ve seen before. It doesn’t rely on the typical reel set and paylines, but rather uses a 5×5 configuration built like a maze. Wins produce a feature that is similar to Cascading Reels, called Swirly Spin. Any symbols involved in a win magically disappear and a Golden Star takes its place, then the existing symbols rotate toward the center of the maze and new symbols are added at the beginning, allowing for multiple wins on one spin. Your goal, in addition to winning 3 or more in a row, is to advance the Celtic key to the center of the maze, where you will enter the Free Spins round, of which there are 4 separate games to choose from. Along the way, Finn the leprechaun will bestow magic upon your symbols randomly throughout the game. There’s a Dragon Destroy, Magic Transformation, Irish Luck and Starfall Wilds. In fact, this game has so many features, it will take some time to experience them. We hopee the luck of the Irish is with you!

Also new to players is a throwback to the ’90s with a slot based on the Baywatch series starring David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson, Yasmine Bleeth, and David Charvet. All four actors make an appearance in this more traditional 5-reel slot. Each spin randomly pairs two lifeguards, which can trigger the Teamwork feature. This is where the pair show up as one team symbol, which can enhance your win. There’s the Wild Wave—appearing on reels 2, 3, and 4 only and will expand randomly—and the Bonus symbol, similarly placed on reels 2, 3, and 4. You’ll need 3 to enter the Free Spins round, where you will select two lifeguards to create your own team. Your choices will determine the number of free spins and which symbols will become stacked. So, get ready to hit the beach…

Mighty Black KnightSlotsTropicana, Virgin
Great TigerSlotsBetfair

Mighty and fierce are the characters featured in the latest slot additions to NJ online casinos. First up is Mighty Black Knight, a game from SG Interactive that harkens back to the days of King Arthur. The layout of this game is a bit unusual, in that it has a typical 5×5 reel set for regular play, but a second, blanked out 5×5 reel set sits right on top of it. To activate that second set, you need to land the Black Knight Wild on a winning payline, at which time he expands to the full 10-line height. As you can imagine, this makes for some terrific wins. There is also the typical Scatter (the Rook), which leads to the Free Spins Round. No Mighty Reels available there, I’m afraid, but you can retrigger spins and if any portion of our Black Knight appears on the reels, he will expand to the full 5-line height. Also on tap is a Big Bet Option, which you can purchase for $20, $30, or $50, depending on how many additional benefits you want on your Big Bet Free Spins.

The fierce comes in the form of Great Tiger, an Everi slot with an Asian theme. This game boasts 4,096 paylines over 6 reels, something that is almost unheard of in today’s slots. As you might imagine, the game pays left to right and right to left. The slot features Stacked Symbols and a Firecracker Wild, which makes a happy crackling sound when triggered. The Chinese Coin acts as the Scatter symbol that leads to the Free Spins Bonus. Lucky players can win up to 50 free spins and 300 credits x bet multiplier if they hit 6 Scatter symbols. You’ll need some luck for that!

Robin Hood Prince of TweetsSlotsBorgata, Caesars, Golden Nugget, Mohegan, Resorts, SugarHouse

There’s been a slowdown midweek at NJ online casinos, with only one new game available: Robin Hood Prince of Tweets. While you might think that the name implies it has something to do with social media, you’re way off base. It’s actually about our hero and his merry band of avian thieves, who make their home in the trees of Nottingham Forest.

Robin Hood himself is the Wild and includes a Robin Hood Arrow feature, where he can turn adjacent symbols into Wilds. During the regular game, only adjacent Princesses turn Wild. But you can increase the incidence by playing the Super Bet feature (which also increases the Return-to-Player percentage).

The Super Bet feature requires an additional wager to initiate. The advantage of a Level 1 Super Bet is that it turns any adjacent Princess, Friar Tuck or gold pouch into a Wild. Go for Super Bet Level 2 and it turns not only those 3 adjacent symbols into Wild, but adds in the target, quiver and Wanted posted into Wilds. a

There is also a Free Games feature, reached by getting 3 or more Castle Scatters. You’ll get 15-25 free spins and during those spins some of the Wild symbols that touch new symbols can also turn them to Wild.

The mystical and mythological made their debut on NJ online casinos this week with two new slots for your playing pleasure. King of Atlantis features King Poseidon and his watery realm, including a Triton Bonus symbol, his crown and ring, and other various remnants from the realm of Atlantis. You’ll find Stacked Symbols and Super Stacked Wilds, also known as Gigantic Wilds. These manifest as large as 2 reels wide and 5 rows long, significantly increasing your chances of winning. And should you want to really take advantage of these Gigantic Wilds, you can place a Wild Side Bet to increase their presence.

From the depths of the ocean you can head to ancient Britain and experience Secret of the Stones. Based on Stonehenge and mystical Celtic symbols, this slot features the Tree of Life (Scatter), Wizard (Wild), a deer, owl, bull, wolf and snake—all with Celtic knots embedded in them—as well as Ten-Ace etched from metal. Get 3 or more Scatters and proceed to the Free Spins bonus round. But first you will select from 20 stones to reveal your bonus features, which range from extra free spins to multipliers and extra Wilds or Wild reels.

Zen GardenSlotsTropicana, Virgin

Pretty slim pickins this week when it comes to new slots at NJ online casinos. Only one new game has made its debut since Monday of this week, but if you’re in the market for some calm, then this game is perfect.

Zen Garden is an Asian-inspired game containing 8 different orb symbols, each one made from a different item in Asian culture, like the koi, rabbit, and dragon. The blue energy orb is the Wild. There is also a Zen Wild, and when it appears a geyser shoots up creating an Expanded Wild. This Expanded Wild comes in particularly handy during the Raining Reels, as it remains for additional Cascading Wins.

If you can get 5 or more wins in a row, you will enter the Zen Garden Free Spin Feature, where you win both cash and have the potential for additional spins. For 5 wins in a row you will get 5 free spins, 6 in a row = 7 spins, 8 in a row = 10 spins, 9 in a row = 15 spins and 10 in a row = 20 spins. Even better you are guaranteed Zen Wilds on every spin within this bonus round.

Two new slots made their way to two NJ online casinos this week.

A magical forest awaits you at the Theatre of the Night slot, where you will encounter hummingbirds, butterflies, flowers, and fireflies. The “fireflies are magnificent specks of light twinkling and dancing in the night” and are one of the keys to winning on this particular game. The Firefly Respin feature provides 6 free spins when a Wild symbol appears on reels 2/3/4. During those spins, the center reel becomes a Stacked Wild and select symbols also become wild, thereby increasing your payout. While there is no Scatter of other bonus feature, you can win 300x your stake with a specific 5 of a kind. Even better, since it pays both ways, you actually come away with 600x your bet!

Go from itty bitty fireflies to fire-breathing dragons in Fire Drake, a progressive slot from bwin.party. Here there are no Wilds to increase your odds of getting 3 or more matching symbols, but there is a Scatter symbol that triggers the Free Spins Bonus Round. The round starts with treasure chests that rest in the dragon’s lair. Pick three to find out how many spins you will get to play. During the spins, all wins are multiplied 4x and you have the opportunity to retrigger the free spins round, making a big payday possible.

Steam TowerSlotsBetfair, Caesars, Golden Nugget
Wild DodoSlotsGolden Nugget
Samurai SplitSlotsGolden Nugget

Are you ready for the weekend? It’s almost here and there are three new slots that have just been added to NJ online casinos. Steam Tower is set in Victorian England and gives a nod to the Steampunk genre. The background features a large tower of metal and rivets and steam set along cobblestoned streets. You’ll find 5 reels and 15 paylines, along with Expanding Wilds and the typical Scatter. This slot only requires two Scatters to enter the Free Spins Bonus Round, where you enter the 16-story tower. Your goal is to make it to the top; the higher you go, the more you win. Every time a Wild shows up on a spin, you move up one level and get 2 more free spins. Every three levels you will get an additional multiplier as well. Make it to the top and you’ll get a 1,000-coin bonus (x your bet level), as well as your free spin winnings.

If you’d like to take the chill off, head to the islands with Wild Dodo. This fun game features colorful flora and fauna, as well as Jack-Ace that appear as carved totems. The Wild Dodo can appear on any reel to aid in a win, but should it settle on the center reel, it will expand and you’ll get three free spins. Should you manage to collect 3 golden dodo eggs (Scatters) you will enter the Dodo’s Nest Free Games, which provides up to 20 free spins with a 3x multiplier.

The final addition, Samurai Split, gives a nod to ancient Japan. Set on a beautiful watercolor background, this slot has a few unique features. The first is the Warrior Spin, which is randomly rewarded. This spin utilizes only the main symbols (no Jack-Ace), Wild and Scatter, increasing the odds for a win. Then there is the Split: any symbol in a winning payline can be split by a Samurai warrior. In fact, you might even get multiple splits on one spin, which can increase your prize up to 32x. This split also comes into play with Scatters. Theoretically, you can win up to 480 free spins if all 5 scatters appear and are split. That’s probably a long shot but certainly worth giving the game a go.

If you are one of the many fans of sports betting, and are waiting with bated breath for SCOTUS to rule on New Jersey’s attempt to legalize sports betting, then you’ll be thrilled with the new slot additions to NJ online casinos this week. Five, count ’em five, virtual sports games are available for you to enjoy.

These virtual sports are all computer-generated, and unlike traditional sports betting, the odds do not change as additional bets are made. You’ll have your choice of:

Virtual Soccer: The league is made of 19 teams, with two teams competing during each event. Matches last up to 2 minutes and provide highlight reels and select clips from the staged match. You can wager on Correct Score, Match Betting (who will win, lose draw), Total Goals, Over/Under 2.5 Goals, Halftime Score, First Team to Score and Last Team to Score.

Virtual Horses: Here you will have 16 horses racing around an oval track. You’ll feel like you’re at the rail cheering them on, as the visuals are pretty realistic, you can hear the pounding of the hooves, and the announcer stirs up the crowd. You can bet on a horse to Win, Place, or Show or go for the Exacta or Trifecta.

Virtual Greyhounds: Only 6 dogs participate in races at Chairman’s Greyhound Park, in similar fashion to the above-mentioned horses. Bets are also the same.

Virtual Cars: These races take place at the virtual Parkway International Speedway. Twelve cars will make 2 laps around the oval track, complete with green infield, billboards and stands filled with cheering fans. You can bet to Win, Place, or Show or, like with Virtual Horses, bet the Exacta or Trifecta.

Virtual Motorcycles: Five competitors race around the oval dirt track to the finish line at the Jersey Shore Speedbowl. Same adoring fans, lively announcer, and bets as with car racing.

Two completely different slots made their debut this week at several NJ online casinos. The first, Lock It Link Night Life, lets you spend a luxurious night on the town featuring fast sports cars, champagne, yachts, and gold coins, among other high-end items. Featuring 5 reels and 50 paylines, this is a very affordable slot, with bets ranging from $.50 to $45. There are the typical Wilds and Scatters, the latter of which awards 5x your total bet and the choice of features: Free Spins or the Lock It Link Bonus Round. Additionally, Red Hearts can award a multiplier of up to 100x your bet in the base game and Gold Hearts can lead to one of four jackpot prizes.

Our second entry this week, The Wild Life, takes place on the African savannah with a backlit red sky. You’ll encounter zebra, rhinos, elephants, giraffes and lions, as well as the Jack-Ace. The Wild, which appears on reels 2/3/4 only, can expand to fill the whole reel when it is part of a winning payline. Speaking of which, there are only 10 paylines, but they do pay left to right and right to left. The map of Africa serves as your Scatter symbol, three or more triggering the Free Spins Bonus Round. During that round those Expanding Wilds turn into Sticky Wilds and hold in place for the duration of your spins (which can be retriggered).

Guardians of Fire & IceSlotsTropicana, Virgin
Golden ChiefSlotsBetfair, Golden Nugget
RenegadesSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse

We’re seeing NJ online casinos pick up the pace and add more games this week. While some of the additions are older titles that round out their total offerings, there are three new slots that will interest players.

Guardians of Fire and Ice has landed an exclusive engagement at Tropicana and Virgin (both sub-brands of Tropicana AC). This slot features comic book superheroes, a la Fantastic Four. The game features vibrant colors, Incredible Wilds, Raining Reels and a Free Spins Bonus Game. Your goal is to summon the Fire or Ice Guardian during the bonus round. Their superpowers can increase your Wilds and your wins substantially.

Golden Chief harkens back to the Wild West and a nod to the Native American culture during that time period. You’ll find Wilds, Expanding Chief Wilds and Heap Wilds (which expand to full reel height and can spread 5 reels wide!). The Bonus Game features three different games: Totem Riches, Cash Canyon and Free Spins Gamble. Be on the lookout for the Mystery Symbol upgrade and the Super Golden Bonus Wheel.

Women warriors are the Renegades in this new slot. Meet Raffaela Blaze, Harriet Hellstorm, FreyaValkyrie of Valhalla, Valda Dragonslayer, and Ivy Sabreclaw. The game features Mega Symbols, where two or 3 adjacent reels may lock, spin together and display a Mega Symbol. This is basically a variation on the Stacked Symbol feature found in other games, but it not only expands up or down a reel, but across multiple reels. Scatters bring about the Free Spins Bonus Game, where you’ll only have one Renegade by your side, increasing the chance for winning paylines.

Slingo Reel BonusSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse
Slingo RichesSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan, Resorts, SugarHouse
Slingo ShowdownSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan, Resorts, SugarHouse

Golden Nugget has added a quartet of Slingo games this week, some of which you can also find at other NJ online casinos. Slingo games are a hybrid of slots and bingo—typically on a 5×5 grid—and feature Jokers and Super Jokers.

Slingo Extreme

Their first entry is Slingo Extreme,  which brings a flaming fire element to the board. In this game you place your bet to get 11 spins, with each spin providing 5 numbers at the top of your reels. Any numbers in the reel which match its respective column on the grid are marked off. Get 5 adjacent square marked off either horizontally vertically or diagonally for a win. Get a Joker and you can mark off any open number on that column, while Super Jokers allow you to mark off one square anywhere on the grid. This game also has a Free Spin element. These will accumulate until your 11 spins are complete. Then you will receive your additional spins to help complete a Slingo. You may also have the opportunity to purchase up to 4 extra spins to help complete a Slingo for a win. The second entry, Slingo Riches, is virtually identical to Slingo Extreme in game play, without the fire element.

The last two variations are a bit different. Slingo Reel Bonus features 5 reels and 20 paylines, more slot than bingo. Wins are paid for 3 or more of a kind on a win line. Land a Wild and it not only substitutes for a symbol to create a win, but it multiplies that win (2x). This game also has a Bonus symbol. Get 3 to initiate your choice of spins. Bonus spin options include 4 spins with 8x multiplier, 8 spins with 4x multiplier or 16 spins with 2x multiplier.

Finally, we have Slingo Showdown, a Wild West version of Slingo that uses playing cards in lieu of numbers. Here the goal is to collect poker hands. You’ll get 9 deals to mark off as many cards as possible. Jokers act as Wilds and can mark off any card within its row, while Super Jokers allow you to mark off any card on the grid. And, like the other games, you do have the option of buying extra deals at the end of your game if you are close to a win.

The cold weather seems to be affecting NJ online casinos, as they’ve been slow to add any new games in the past week. But Virgin and Tropicana have decided to warm things up with one new offering: Guardians of Fire and Ice.Guardians of Fire & Ice

This superhero-themed game features vibrant colors with a comic book-style look. Symbols include Fire Guardian, Ice Guardian, Evil Demon, spaceship, fist of fire, and super power rings belonging to the three characters. The Wild is a brightly lit orb encased in a cube. Land one of these Wilds on the center space to summon your superheroes, who have the power to increase your wins or freeze Wilds in their place. The game also employs Raining Reels, commonly known as Cascading Reels. With this feature winning symbols are removed and new symbols cascade down for possible additional wins.

You’ll be looking to gather Scatter symbols to get to the Guardians of Fire & Ice Free Spins bonus round (that’s a mouthful!). You accumulate these during cascading wins, so get 4 or more to trigger the bonus. You’ll start with a set number of spins (5-13), but you’ll be able to add to that during the course of your spins. Each Free Spins round will employ one of the two superheroes, along with their super power: freezing Wilds or harnessing the power of fire to unleash super wins?

Ghostbusters Spectral SearchSlotsGolden Nugget
Medieval Money Dragon's LootSlotsGolden Nugget
Wheel of Fortune Winning WordsSlotsGolden Nugget

Well, there’s a new breed of game in town, more like the scratch card games we wrote about earlier in the week (see January 9 post below). Interestingly enough, they aren’t labeled “Scratch” like those games were, but they do use the same 3×3 grid. Two of the game award instant prizes, but there are no Free Spins bonus round, or any bonus round, for that matter. Amongst this new style of gaming are Ghostbusters Spectral Search, Medieval Money Dragon’s Loot, and Wheel of Fortune Winning Words.Ghostbusters Spectral Search

Ghostbusters Spectral Search is a fun take on the movie franchise, featuring some of your favorite characters like Stay Puft, Scoleri Brothers, and Slimer. Your job is to identify rooms with ghosts with the S.P.O.O.K. (Spectral Processing Optical Operation Kit) sensor and then pick 5 places in that room to reveal ghosts. It’s actually very interactive. Medieval Money Dragon’s Loot has you shooting boulders from a catapult at the castle, now occupied by the dragon who’s sitting on a lot of treasure. Your goal is to amass treasure from the storerooms as you break down the walls with the boulders. Finally, there’s the newest addition to the popular Wheel of Fortune franchise, Wheel of Fortune Winning Words Game. Your goal here is to match the letters in 3 words by revealing 12 letters. Each turn, you’ll spin the wheel to reveal your potential prize value, then start matching your letters to prize words. I doubt this version of WoF will gain the popularity of past games, but it’s certainly a new twist.

All games have a $1-$10 bet options, Auto Play feature, maximum payout of $300,000, and return-to-player (RTP) percentage of 93%.

Volcano Eruption ScratchSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan, Resorts

It’s a scratch card frenzy this week at NJ online casinos. Four, count ’em four, casinos have added multiple scratch games to their line up and will be competing for your business.

Doubleplay Super Bet Scratch looks slightly retro with its cherries, bells, and 7s. As with all scratch card games, you must get 3 matching symbols to win, and here your potential wins range from 1x to 1,000x your bet. The Free Games round guarantees wins on every spin and all wins are automatically tripled.Witch Pickings

Our second entry is Witch Pickings Scratch, featuring all thing magical, including potions, cauldrons, castles and crystal balls, as well as a trio of witches. That trio will lead you to the Ladder Bonus round where you’ll collect magic mushrooms to make your way up the ladder. Prizes are awarded based on the number of mushrooms collected and are multiplied by your bet amount (up to 10,000x your be if you get 9!).

Last, but not least, is Volcano Eruption Scratch, set in an exotic locale and featuring colorful jungle flora and fauna. Like the Witch Pickings, this game has a Ladder Bonus, but the win potential is 50,000x your bet amount. The downside here is the return to player (RTP) is only 90.43%, very low by today’s standards.

Sphinx WildSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM

Amidst all the holiday hoopla and New Year’s celebrations, only one new game has been added to NJ online casinos in the last week. While we expect that to change in the coming weeks, right now you have the chance to check out Sphinx Wild, a new title from IGT.Sphinx Wild

This Egyptian-themed game features familiar icons, such as the Ankh, Eye of Horus, Anubis, assorted jewels, and 10-Ace. With a fairly typical 5 reels and 40 paylines, the gem in this game is the Tutankahmun mask, which can turn into a Surrounding Wild. Wherever good old Tut lands, if a win is possible, every symbol adjacent to him will turn wild, making for some really kingly wins. The Free Spins bonus game has a twist as well: Hit 3 or more Great Pyramid Scatter symbols and then choose from four spin/multiplier combinations. (For example, should you get 3 bonus symbols, you have your choice of 30 spins/1x multiplier, 15 spins/2x multiplier, 10 spins/3x multiplier or 7 spins/5x multiplier.) Better yet, is that you can re-trigger the Free Spins bonus round, where you can switch up your choice!

Live Dealer Casino Hold'emTable GamesGolden Nugget

Golden Nugget has just debuted a new Live Dealer poker game: Casino Hold’em. The first U.S. online casino to include this offering, it features a common draw format, fast-paced action and a streamlined betting process.

The objective behind Casino Hold’em is to score a better 5-card hand than the dealer. The game starts with the first round of bets: the ante. Then the dealer shows 2 cards face up for the players, 2 cards face down for the dealer, and 3 community cards. Everyone at the table bets on the same 2 dealt cards.

Next comes the second round of betting, where a player can Call or Fold. Two more community cards are dealt and the dealer shows her cards. The best hand wins.

The Live Dealer Casino Hold’em game will be available Sunday through Thursday from 3 pm to 3 am and Friday/Saturday from noon to 3 am.

Smash the PigSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM

Baby, it’s cold outside…the perfect time to play Icy Wilds, one of two new slots at NJ online casinos. Set in an arctic scene with the breathtaking Aurora Borealis in the background, this game is all about nature’s white wildlife, from the snow leopard to the white snowy owl to the white ermine and polar bear. Symbols also include the Ice Princess and her icy jewels—set in a crown, ring and pendant—as well as 10-Ace.Icy Wilds

The game features stacked symbols (including the Wild) and when you happen upon one, you’ll see that reel become Wild on your next spin. You’ll want to pay particular attention to the polar bear, who acts as the key to the Free Spins bonus round. Three or more polar bears on at least 3 different reels awards up to 45 free spins (remember, they’re stacked symbols, so the more bears, the more spins you’ll get!).

Also on tap this week is Smash the Pig with its stack o’ cash, piggy bank (and mallet to smash it with), pig penny, and Jack-Ace symbols. There are two bonus rounds: Smash the Pig Bonus and Pick a Pig Bonus. You’ll need to spin 3-5 Pig symbols to trigger the Pick a Pig bonus. You’ll have your choice of pigs, with each one representing a different hidden bonus. These range from a 1-20x random multiplier, additional pick, Win All! or the Bonus, where you trigger the Smash the Pig Bonus.

Featuring a piggy bank loaded with cash, and paying left to right and right to left, Smash the Pig can also be awarded by getting 3 or more Smash the Pig symbols during regular spins. This bonus game has a unique Luck Meter. So, if you’re feeling lucky today, this is the game to play!

It’s December and so we’re seeing several new holiday-themed slots show up on NJ online casinos. Mohegan and Resorts both added Jolly’s Gift and Foxin’ Wins: A Very Foxin’ Christmas.

Side City Studios is behind Jolly’s Gift, a somewhat juvenile take on all that is Christmas, featuring wooden toy trains, wind-up tin soldiers, gingerbread men, and the most adorable doe-eyed kitten. The main character, Jolly, is an anime-style teen that represents the Wild (and Expanded Wild). The game features Wild Re-Spins, Jolly’s Mystery Gifts, and Free Spins bonus game.

The second featured slot on the holiday express is a real mouthful—Foxin’ Wins: A Very Foxin’ Christmas by NextGen Gaming. This is part of a series featureing a wealthy, nattily-dressed fox who lives the life of luxury. Featured are his mansion, large bankroll, a brightly lit Christmas tree, and a Rolls Royce driven by what looks like Mrs. Fox. The game has a SuperBet feature for an additional wager, a Free Spins bonus game (which can be retriggered), a Random Bonus, and a mysterious Leprechaun Shakedown, which seems totally out of place.

But not everything is about the holidays. In fact, there’s an engaging new slot that just released showcasing mystery and intrigue. The classic whodunit author, Agatha Christie, who brought us Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple and Tommy and Tuppence, now has her very own slot. Agatha Christie’s Mystery Wilds, available exclusively at Virgin and Tropicana online casinos, features the aforementioned characters as well as symbols associated with Christie: typewriter, manuscript, poison bottle and mousetrap. You’ll find Wilds, Stacked Symbols, Sticky Wilds, and a Free Spins bonus round. This last feature starts off with 5 picks. Choose from the assortment of Agatha Christie books to lock in the number of spins and clues you will start with. You’ll add clues to the meter throughout your spin, and when the meter is full you will get a purple Sticky Wild that remains until your turn is complete. There are also Mystery Wilds, but you’ll just have to play to find out what they are!

This week several NJ online casinos have added a new slot based on the Planet of the Apes movie franchise. In conjunction with Twentieth Century Fox, NetEnt has developed an intriguing 10-reel game that encompasses two movie titles: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Rise of the Planet of the Apes. The left most 5 reels are based on Rise, while the right 5 reels link to Dawn. The reels feature many of your favorite characters, played by John Lithgow, Gary Oldman, Frieda Pinto, Keri Russell, Jason Clarke and Tom Felton. Each side features Stacked Wilds, a bonus feature, and Free Spins bonus round. It’s quite intriguing and you’ll love the scenes from the movie that introduce the bonus games.

Also on tap this week is Slingo Showdown, the newest in the Slingo slot series that plays off a Western theme. You’ll get more bang for your buck on this Slingo slot, as every bet gives you 10 deals, where you try to shoot out the grid of 25 playing cards you are dealt. Fill up one line (diagonal, horizontal or vertical) and you get a Slingo, increasing your winnings. Any time you hit a playable hand (two pair, 3 of a Kind, Flush, Full House, etc.) you’ll also get an additional win. Better yet, is that if you’re close to shooting out all the cards after your 10 deals, you can pay a nominal amount to continue and get a bigger win!

No doubt you’re heading into the weekend with holiday shopping on your agenda. But don’t forget to make time for yourself, and maybe a new game or two from your favorite NJ online casino.

One of the cooler new slots on the market is High Voltage Blackout by Everi. Visually stunning, this game plays on every big city’s worst fear: a blackout. The regular game play features a random Re-spin Bonus that can be triggered after any spin. When active, players get up to 5 respins, each with a guaranteed win and escalating reward. Add to that the Lightning Multipliers of 2X to 10X and you can get some pretty sweet wins. The bonus game, called Blackout Bonus, is unique, awarding you 5 button picks in an attempt to blackout the city skyline. You’re awarded credits for each building you take down, but blackout all buildings of one color and you’ll get an extra bonus award. This high-energy game is truly electrifying.

For some lighthearted fun, check out Heidi’s Bier Garden by WMS Gaming. You’ll step right into a German bier garden where Heidi will serve you up some frosty cold ones, along with a variety of bonuses. This game features Wilds (large mug of cold beer) as well as a Tapper feature. This feature, which is randomly activated, allows Heidi to turn on a tap (or two or three) above a reel, making it completely Wild. The Bonus Free Spins round comes courtesy of 5 or more Heidi symbols and can award from 5 to 100 spins. During those spins you will find 4 different kinds of Wilds activated, along with the possibility of Heidi kicking in that Tapper feature. This is one game to enjoy with a cold beer as you play.

It’s that time of year where we wish you a Happy Holidays, but many casinos are also Wishing You Fortune with their new slot of the same name. This Asian-themed slot has two bonus features: Free Spins Bonus and the Fortune Reel (which awards you either the Fortune Wild feature or the Festive Wheel feature). The Free Spins bonus will award a prize of 250 to 2,500 coins and a changing mix of spins and multipliers—determined by one of five dragons. As if that isn’t enough, there are 1,024 ways to win on this 5-reel game.

Also new this week is Bar-X Colossal, a retro-themed slot with 5×3 reels and only 5 paylines. Featuring Bars, 7s, Xs and (valueless) Os, you’ll find that the center 3 reels are locked together, at times with colossal symbols taking up multiple reels and lines. When any colossal symbol fully shows up (3 reels/3 lines), it will hold and you’ll get a free respin of the remaining two wheels. The Bar-X Bonus occurs when a bonus Bar-X symbol shows up in full view. It will trigger the number of free spins based on the same color Free Spin Pot located above the reels.

As we head into December with all its attendant hoopla around the holidays, several casinos have added an appropriately themed slot: Secrets of Christmas. This new game from NetEnt has 5 reels, 25 paylines and a max payout of $350,000. Set in a winter wonderland, complete with snowflakes falling, this game features traditional holiday symbols, including wreaths, candles, stockings, gingerbread houses, and even a plate of cookies with a glass of milk for jolly Santa Claus. The Free Spins bonus game has a bit of twist that adds some excitement to this slot standard. Santa will bestow gifts upon you, from additional free spins and multipliers to Wild reels and even the transformation of bells and candles into Wild symbols on spins. Enjoy the jaunty holiday music while you play!

And if it’s too soon to broach the subject of Christmas, or if you are Mr./Mrs. Scrooge, then check out the other new offering at NJ online casinos this week: Wizard of Oz Road to Emerald City. This offering from WMS Gaming is the 7th in a series of slots based on L. Frank Baum’s famous book of the same name. You’ll find all your favorite characters: Dorothy, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, Scarecrow, and even the Wicked Witch. The look of this game is unusual, with 3×3 reels and only 9 paylines, but the 7 Bonus features more than make up for it. Among the bonuses are the Glinda the Good Witch Bonus, Dorothy Free Spins Game, Scarecrow Prizes, and the biggie, Toto Emerald Trails, an unlimited Free Spins round. Certainly worth making the trip to Oz….

Coming off the long holiday weekend, NJ online casinos only have one new slot for you to try out, but it’s both unique and intriguing.

PlaySugarHouse is offering Ancient Thunder, a keno-style game with a multitude of bonuses. Rather than the typical reel/payline set-up, this slot has a 10×8 grid of stone tablets, each with a number. You can choose 3-10 numbers to hit. Change them every time or stand your ground…or let the Quick Pick do the work for you. Once you’ve chosen, 15 bonus spots are randomly selected and include Greek gods and a bonus coin multiplier (2x). Hit the minimum number of picks to win; hit enough Greek god spots and a bonus is triggered.

Hit 2 Athena squares and get a random number of extra draws to be used with the Helios Bonus. Hit 3 Helios spots and you’ll get to use those Athena extra draws. Four Poseidons and you will get Free Games, which includes a multiplier than can be increased with wins. And, lastly, get 5 Zeus spots for the Wheel Spin Bonus. You’ll get two spins of a wheel sectioned out with payouts. You can opt to take your first spin’s amount or take your chances with your second spin. If you hit this with Max Bet, you can win up to 80,000 credits. I’ll take that thunder any day!

If you’ve got some free time over this long Thanksgiving weekend, there’s some new slot offerings at New Jersey online casinos that you might want to check out.

Over at Golden Nugget, there’s Wild Run, an African-themed slot. Upon opening this game you’ll see a gorgeously rendered sunset on the savannah, replete with acacia trees, giraffes and elephants. The 5 reels utilize wild animals, including the Cape Buffalo, rhinos, cheetahs and elephants, as well as card suits (diamond, heart, spade and club). Spin the reels and you’ll find that any win kicks in the On-A-Roll feature. This has multiple levels, kicking in free spins until you spin a losing combination. Should you attain 4 winning on-a-roll spins, you’ll get the Free Games feature where the number of Wilds is increased and come with a 5x multiplier, making this one African savannah that you’ll want to visit.

Should you want something a bit more comical, head over to the farm and test Pigasus & Friends, featuring some very silly looking characters, including flying pigs and unicorn sheep. This slot has a unique Red Hot Respin feature that is available when you get two of three bonus symbols. You can pay for the chance to respin one reel and get that third symbol to trigger the bonus. (However, you will pay dearly for that luxury.) Once the Free Spins Bonus kicks in, you’ll be given 2 – 4 lives. You spin and win until the Big Bad Wolf appears and steals a life. With each life stolen, the win multiplier does increase though, anywhere from 2x to 10x.

SugarHouse is the first of the NJ online casinos to add two new games to their already large collection. The first, Wheely Wheely Big Win, looks unlike anything I have seen before, while Slingo Reel Bonus is an amped-up version of the original game. Let’s look at a few details on these games…

Wheely Wheely Big Win forgoes the traditional 5 or 6 reels for two wheels, one inside the other. It’s a bit like roulette, but instead of betting on just one small portion of the wheel, you can choose to widen it to include multiple wedges. The more wedges you choose to bet on, the better your chance of a win, but that win will be smaller than if you choose a thinner wedge. Conversely, choose a smaller slice and you lower your chances of winning but increase the overall payout. It’s a unique take on a slot, but one that’s intriguing enough to give it a try.

Slingo Reel Bonus, by Gaming Realms, uses the tried-and-true formula of mixing slots and bingo, following in the footsteps of Slingo, Slingo Riches and Slingo Extreme. They’ve pumped up the color and graphics on this version, adding a lot of multipliers, as well as your standard Wilds. There’s a Win Spins Bonus, which acts like a mini-game with your choice of more spins or a higher multiplier. Choices, choices, choices….

You’ll find two new games this week available for play at NJ online casinos, with both titles having a nod toward trending topics, like social media emojis and mining for gems, a la Minecraft and other video games.

Over at GoldenNuggetCasino.com, you’ll find Emoji Planet, based on society’s love of ideograms and smiling faces. Here you’ll find the infamous poop emoji, a crying emoji, alien head, hearts, slice of pizza and more. Instead of traditional paylines, this slot pays on Clusters with Cascading Symbols. Get 5 or more of the same symbol in a cluster for a win, then watch as they disappear and new symbols appear for another possible win. The game also has 5 Emoji Features, each with a different kind of payout. Fill up one of the 5 Emoji Meters to activate the feature, which can be additional Wilds, win mutlipliers, or Sticky Wilds with multiple free spins.

Then there’s Lightning Gems, available at ResortsCasino.com. This game tends toward the more traditional in looks with the traditional Wild and Scatter features, as well as rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. The game employs a Wild Nudge feature, where on any spin where you just miss a win may be nudged up or down into a winning position, a feature you see on several land-based slots. There’s also Wild Wins, where during any spin additional Wilds may be added randomly to the reels. You will also find the traditional Free Games features, attained by 3 or more Scatters appearing on the reels. During these Free Games, however, you have 10 Wilds added to each reel, with 50 extra wilds added in total. Not only that, but the Free Games can be retriggered. This can make for a staggeringly good payout, worth its weight in gems.

Travel the canals of Venice or play amongst the snowflakes in the two new slots offered on NJ online casinos.

Venice Magic, which has a Venetian Carnival theme, is a 5 reel, 25 payline slot featuring golden lions, masked revelers, decorative masks and fans, as well as card suits. While there are the typical Scatter symbols that lead to a Free Spins bonus game, there are no traditional Wilds on the reels. However, two types of Wilds occur on Venice’s Treasure Bonus. This bonus occurs on random spins where you will either get 1-4 Joker Wilds or Tower Wilds (also known as Stacked Wilds) prior to the reel stopping. There is also a Bonus Wheel symbol, and should 3 or more show up you are awarded the Zodiac Wheels Free Games. During this bonus you can win from 5 to 15 free games, 2x, 3x or 5x multiplier and either 1-2 Tower Wilds or 2x-3x Joker Wilds, making for a profitable payout.

Should you prefer to greet the oncoming cold weather with some Snowflakes, then the second slot is the perfect game for you. Set in a winter wonderland where fractal snowflakes in brilliant colors adorn the transparent reels, this game does feature the typical Wilds and Scatters. The Free Spins bonus game comes with 7-15 free spins, depending on the number of Scatters shown, and comes with a Locked Wilds feature. In addition, you can get Icy Wilds (which add an additional Wild to the reels after the reels stop spinning) or the Icy Wind (which blows a Wild onto the reels while they are turning). Both make for a winter wonderland where wins can be increased significantly.

Harken back to the old days—and I do mean old—with three new slots at NJ online casinos.

The Stone Age is represented in Winstones Resort & Casino, a comical take on a Flintstone’s era cartoon. The reels hold stone tablets, each representing a symbol, from prehistoric dinosaurs to animal skin-clad characters to the typical 9-Ace. The Wooly Mammoth is the Bonus symbol, three or more of which will take you to the Bonus Spins Feature. This bonus consists of two stages. In the first you have a Pick Bonus, where you spin the wheel to reveal your prize. Prizes start with 5 free games with 2x line bet, all the way up to 20 free games with 5x line bet. Then move on to the free spins, where you just might get lucky and hit 3 more Mammoths, which will re-trigger the bonus.

Next in line chronologically is Legend of the Pharoahs, who first appeared in 3100 b.c. This game features typical Egyptian symbols like the ankh, a black scarab, Egyptian eye, armored bird, as well as 10 through Ace. Three or more Golden Pyramids take you to the Free Spins bonus game. Should you not want to wait for it to naturally occur, you can choose the Big Bet feature, where you can buy spins. Here you can spend $20 to $50 for 5 Big Bet Spins. During those spins you will need to collect 2 Golden Pyramids for the chance to spin the bonus wheel. Here you can win 10 or more free spins with a Colossal symbol, a cash prize, or zilch. Get 3 or more Golden Pyramids and you’ll get a Free Spins Bonus that is very rewarding.

Our last offering for today is Zeus God of Thunder, theoretically born in 700 b.c. The best feature of this game is the Extra Bet, which is not a cheap endeavor as it is 20x the bet per line. However, should the thunder clap as the reels turn and you hit 3, 4 or 5 of the background image on adjacent rows, the Wheel Feature kicks in. A spin will reveal a prize, which can be free spins (up to 100), upgrades (to the next highest wheel) or random Wilds on a free spin (up to 8). There’s also the possibility of spinning to hit the Minor, Major, Mega or Grand jackpots, which range up to 10,000 coins.

A trio of new games has arrived at NJ online casinos, and you know that good things always come in threes.

There’s The Legend of Shangri-La: Cluster Pays, which has a unique pay structure. Instead of the typical paylines, this game pays in clusters of symbols that span across 3 or more reels. The game also offers random substitutions, thanks to a green orb, Sticky Re-Spins, Stacked Symbols and a Free Spins bonus game.

You can also test out Theatre of the Night, a relatively simple game with 5 reels and 10 paylines (which pay both ways). Set in a magical forest with reel symbols that represent flora and fauna, you’ll want to achieve the Firefly Re-Spins feature where you not only have Stacked Wilds on reel 3, but selected symbols also morph into Wilds.

The last of three is Glorious Empire, which harkens back to the days of the Roman Empire with armored soldiers, decorative chariots and winged horses. The 40 paylines pay both left and right, increasing the number of wins. Hit the Scatter Free Spins Bonus and you’ll win up to 15 games, where any Wild appearing is held for the duration of the spins.

Sink your teeth into these two new slots, arriving at NJ online casinos just in time for Halloween.

Vampires are the theme of Blood Suckers II, an updated and highly engaging version of the original. You will enter the Vampire Castle along with young Vampiress Amilia, who has arrived to seek out the treasures of her long-dead ancestors. Spinning the 5 reels you’ll find all manner of vampires, from blonde and raven-haired beauties to the bat-like demon vampire. Additional symbols include jeweled hearts diamonds, spades and clubs. Your goal is to get to the Hidden Treasure Bonus Game, where coffins and chests hold prizes. Collect coins and keys as you move up levels, avoiding the demon vampire. Make it to the final level and reveal a key for a 1,000-coin bonus.

Vibrantly colored sugar skulls and skeletons make for a visual delight on Fortunes of the Dead, a slot based on Latin America’s Day of the Dead, honoring spirits of long-gone relatives. Spin the reels to reveal three bonuses. There’s the Skull Bonus which awards a coin prize, the Once in a Wild mystery bonus, where you get one respin that features 4 Wild symbols randomly placed, and the Scatter Free Spins bonus, where you will be awarded 5 free spins. During this last game a Wild is randomly placed on the reels and remains locked there for the duration of the free games. This Sticky Wild feature can pay big bucks, especially if additional Wild symbols appear.

There were four slot titles added to the lineup at playMGM last week. Two of these are new: Dr. Jekyll Goes Wild, a 5 reel/10 payline game, set on the city streets of London circa the Victorian Age, which has some unique features that increase wins, and Fu Dao Le, a Chinese-themed progressive slot from Bally that offers 243 ways to win, a feature-rich bonus game, and four jackpots.

There are also two longtime standards mixed into the pot: Owl Eyes, set on a moonlit evening in the woods and featuring creatures of the night, is a 5 reel/50 payline slot with Stacked Wilds, and Andre the Giant, which pays homage to the late pro wrestler/actor. The game has a wrestling theme with Andre Goes Wild and Battle Bout Bonus features.

We’re seeing two new games already this week, available at a variety of casinos. The first is Golden Mane, developed by NextGen. Set amongst rolling hills, this equine-themed slot has 5 reels and 10 paylines, with a minimum bet of $.15 per line. It features a beautiful Golden Stallion Wild and Horseshoe Scatters. Two or three of the latter lead to the Free Spins Bonus game, which features Sticky Wilds, allowing for increased wins on subsequent spins.

Our second new entry into the market is Queen of the Tree Folk by Gamesys. This fantasy-themed game is named after the Warrior Elfin Queen who rules the magical forest. The 5 reels have a wood-grain background and feature a wizard, ancient tree, deer, potions, and more. Wild vines act as the Wild and transform other symbols on the reels, while the potion bottle is the Scatter symbol. Three Scatters takes you to the Free Spins Bonus round where you have three options for play, each with a different number of spins and multiplier. Best of all, there are 243 ways to win.

Go old school horror with Dr. Jekyll Goes Wild, a new slot from Barcrest. This 5 reel/10 payline game, set on the city streets of London circa the Victorian Age, has some unique features that increase wins. There are Sticky Wilds (thanks to Mr. Hyde) and a Big Bet feature. Instigating the Big Bet feature (which you pay to do) allows you 5 spins, during which you collect Scatters. Collect 3 and get 10 free spins, collect 8 and get 75 free spins! This feature can increase the return to player (RTP) to 98.2%, a rarity these days.

Also new to the scene is Million Dollar Money Drop, which has a TV gameshow backdrop and invisible audience that claps and cheers for every win. During each spin there is the potential for the Bonus Symbol to appear. Each time it does, it places a stack of cash in front of one of 5 trap doors. When you do hit 3 Bonus symbols and get to the Bonus Game, these stacks come into play. They will randomly turn into Stacked Wilds in the column they are under, thereby increasing your wins. If you have stacks on 4 or 5 trapdoors, this can make for a fairly lengthy Bonus Game, where you can rack up some change. And at the end, you also get to keep the amount that is left on the one unopened trap door. Now that’s a bonus!

Heading into the weekend, and a month of spooktacular happenings, you’ll find two new and very appropriately themed games to have some fun with at NJ online casinos.

Charms and Witches is the perfect addition for Golden Nugget, with Halloween fast approaching. This slot, from Side City Studios/NYX Gaming, features some shape-shifting characters. Beauties turn into crones, then into toads and rats, and keep on going. You’ll find black cats, ravens and scarecrows featuring pumpkin heads. Flying bats flitter across the 5 reels and randomly change ordinary symbols into Wilds, increasing wins along the way. The Pick Me bonus allows you to choose from one of the Orange Potions, which can reveal a cash prize, a Pick Again or a Win All bonus. You’ll also find a Free Spins round with doubled wins and an increase in those flying bats. Not too scary, huh?

And if you need inspiration for a Halloween costume, check out the Sapphire Sorceress at Tropicana and Virgin online casinos. You’ll get plenty of ideas that would be worthy of ComicCon. Set in a fantasy world where the Sorceress reigns, you’ll spin to reveal magical artifacts, such as a spell book and a cauldron (which serves as the Wild), as well as the typical 10-Ace (which are represented with an Olde World font). While there is no Bonus Game, there are Raining Reels that provide Cascading Wins up to 20x your line bet.

There’s a hot new game in town and 10 NJ online casinos have jumped on the bandwagon to add it to their lineups.

Wolf Cub, a new slot from NetEnt, is a cutesy take on arctic animals and their antics. The main character is an adorable wolf cub and he’s joined on the 5 reels by his friends the moose, bear, lynx and an owl. During the spins, you will hear a happy little melody playing in the background and you’ll find the typical Scatter and Wild features. Three Scatter symbols provides not only a howl from our little wolf cub, but a Free Spin bonus round where the Blizzard feature kicks in and can provide some big wins. So head north and take a spin on this new slot.

Additionally, Golden Nugget has added a Multiview Roulette game in its Live Dealer section. The hallmark of this type of roulette is the dynamic camera movement, which allows you multiple viewings of the table and the wheel. This new table game is open daily from 3 p.m. to 3 a.m.

playMGM and Borgata have both added two new games to the roster just in time for the weekend.

Manic Millions, by NextGen Gaming, is a fun take on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Set in a brightly lit and colorful lab, you’ll find the good doctor and his trusty sidekick Igor, who is a lovable lump of a hunchback with special powers. (He can turn ordinary symbols into Electrifying Morphing Wilds at whim.) There’s also the Manic Millions bonus round with Electrifying Free Games (and additional Wilds) and, should you feel the need, a Gamble feature for you to use on wins. Manic Millions provides for a “shockingly good time.”

There’s also Starmania, also from NextGen, a space-themed game with the galaxy serving as the background. Various shaped and colored stars serve as the symbols on the 5 reels, which pays two ways—the typical left to right and right to left. The game features Stacked Wilds and a Bonus Scatter game. During the bonus game, you not only get extra Stacked Wilds, but you can also retrigger the bonus during the initial 10 spins. Oh, and that Gamble feature is available on this slot as well.

Celebrate with the new Bubbly Wild slot available now at several NJ online casinos. This Gamesys slot goes old school with assorted fruits, bells and bars but has a unique bonus game. On every spin, multiple symbols appear on the reels with bubbles surrounding them. Get 5 bubble symbols and fill up the Bubble B-O-N-U-S line and you’ll get 22x your line bet! There are also the standard Wilds and a Bubble Popper bonus game, where you pop a bubble to reveal your prize, which is multiplied by your line bet.

Also new this week is Xing Guardian, an Asian take on princesses and dragons. With 1,204 ways to win, this is sure to be a hit. A beautiful Indian princess is the basic Wild symbol, although during any base game a dragon may appear and reveal stacked Wilds on one or more reels, increasing your win. The Yin/Yang symbol serves as the Scatter, and get 3 or more and you’ll trigger 10 free games. Along the way you may also encounter the Xing Guardian, who randomly appears and can lock the reels to spin together to display the same symbols in adjacent positions (during both the base game and during free spins).

Heading into the weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to test out a few ways to play at various NJ online casinos. If you’re feeling a bit mischievous, try the Cheshire Cat slot, a fun twist on Lewis Carrol’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. You’ll fit right in with the game’s main character—the psychedelic-striped, toothy-grinned cat. You’ll also find many of the lovable characters from the tale, including Alice herself, the hookah-smoking caterpillar, and the white rabbit, as well as the typical Wilds, Scatters and Bonus Game. Within the Bonus Game you get to try your luck on the Wheel of Fortune to determine how many wild reels you’ll continue the round with, and there is a Mystery symbol element. What does it do? You’ll have to play to find out!

The long-awaited Fastpick is now available at Resorts (online and in the brick-and-mortar location). This is a daily fantasy sports betting game, the first of its kind to be offered by a New Jersey casino. Bet on your favorite athletes in at least 3 (and a maximum of 20) player matchups from any available pre-set game and you can win up to $100,000. Bets start at $5 and the game will even appeal to high rollers wishing to wager up to $10,000. Matchups occur on players from Major League Baseball, National Football League, National Basketball Association and English Premier Soccer League.

School’s back in session and vacations have come to an end. We thought we’d add a little distraction to this sad end-of-summer news with a few new games to tickle your fancy. Bingo Billions is the name of the game at two NJ online casinos. This is not your grandma’s church bingo, and actually feels more like a television game show, complete with loud host shouting out BINGO! Scatter symbols have multiple uses, including multiplying your bet (up to 100x). So pull up a chair and spin to win.

There’s also Butterfly Staxx with its calming zen-like soundtrack. Featuring flowers and insects, along with the ubiquitous 9-A, you’ll find stacked symbols, free respins. Wilds, and Scatter symbols. The Free Spins bonus game is a bit unusual – so head over to find out if it staxx up to your standards.

In addition to typical features like Free Spins, this online slot has a unique feature consisting of eight circular icons that frame the reels. These icons change with each spin and, if they show up as a Wild, will transfer over to the gaming wheels. This increases the possibility of a win-multiplier and adds a new level of interest to a genre that rarely sees new features.
