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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Spin DoctorSlotsCaesars
Undead RichSlotsCaesars

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

In addition to grid numbers, this Slingo version has:

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

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

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

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

Other Slingo Titles Available at Golden Nugget:

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

Mammoth PowerSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

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

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

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

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

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

WishwoodSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

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

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

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

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

Strolling Staxx: Cubic FruitsSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts

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

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

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

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

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

Mercy of the GodsSlotsBorgata, playMGM
Lawless LoveSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Green Machine DeluxeSlotsCaesars

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Progressive Jackpot works the same as Soaring Stallion.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Golden EgyptSlotsBetfair, Golden Nugget
Great MoaiSlotsGolden Nugget

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

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

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

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

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

30 Free Spins + 1 Expanding Wild Reel

15 Free Spins + 2 Expanding Wild Reels

5 Free Spins + 3 Expanding Wild Reels

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

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

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

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

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

Golden GladiatorSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wild StreetsSlotsGolden Nugget

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

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

During the base game there are 3 features:

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

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

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

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

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron BurgundySlotsBorgata, playMGM

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

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

The game carries 3 features during base play:

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

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

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

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

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

Astro CatSlotsGolden Nugget
Slingo RevealSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

China Shores Quick StrikeSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse

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

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

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

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

Tiki IdolSlotsGolden Nugget
Dazzling DragonsSlotsGolden Nugget

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wild BazaarSlotsBorgata, playMGM

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Cocktail CashSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts
Art of the StealSlotsSugarHouse

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Leprechaun KingSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Silver EnchantressSlotsGolden Nugget
Volcanic Rock Fire Twin FeverSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If you’re hunkering down between Christmas and New Year’s trying to stay warm and need some entertainment, we’ve found a couple of new slot titles at NJ online casinos available for your enjoyment. Konami delivered Shikibu, an Asian-themed title available at two casinos, while High 5 Games—which has been rather prolific of late—brings prehistoric dinosaurs to life in a game with an untraditional reelset. Let’s take a look….

Shikibu is a slot based on the author of the famed Tale of Genji, an ancient tome written over a thousand years ago. The game features all manner of Asian symbols, like a crane, turtle, lotus and Japanese characters. The twist on the reels is that the center reel has two symbols appearing in each frame, making it a bit easier to get a win.

The Free Spins Bonus is triggered by 3 or more Scatters, and allows you to choose the number of free spins (3, 5, 10 or 20), along with its multipliers, which range from 1 to 20. You also have the option of the Mystery Choice, which will assign a random number of games and a multiplier.

For something completely different, check out Dino Dollars. Rather than the traditional 5-reel slot, what you have with this game is 6 play areas, each comprised of 4 squares with symbols. Symbols include 4 types of dinosaurs, the Queen–Ace, and a Wild. What you want is all 4 squares of the same symbol, which will transform into one large symbol. Large symbols act as your Scatter and form winning combos.

There is also a fossilized dinosaur print that appears in the base game. One or more large dinosaur print symbols will trigger the Treasure Tier Bonus where you will be awarded picks: 1 large print = 2 picks, 2 large prints = 4 picks and 3 large prints = 6 picks. Each pick takes place in a separate tier, each with 4 possible pick options. Choices will reveal either a credit or multiplier.

The dinosaur’s eye is what will trigger the Free Games Bonus. One large eye will trigger 7 games, 2 large eyes trigger 15, and 3 large eyes trigger 30 games. You’ll play the Free Games Bonus on a different reelset and cannot be retriggered.

A Visit from St. NickSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts, SugarHouse
Temple of the Golden MonkeySlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget

Santa has sent his advance team to treat you to some fun at NJ online casinos. With A Visit from St. Nick, you’ll get into the holiday spirit with its soothing Christmas melody and all the Christmas-themed symbols. With this slot, the Wilds come in the form of presents and appear on reels 2, 3, and 4 only. Different presents contain differing multipliers, which range from 2x to 4x in the base game. If you land more than one multiplier on a winning line, the sum of he multiplier value is awarded.

The Bonus Select feature requires 3 wreath-laden reindeer, aka the Scatter symbols, to appear in any positions on reels 2, 3 and 4. You will be awarded one pick, of which you have 5 options

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

During your Free Games, you will use a different reelset and the Wilds will contain multipliers, ranging from 3x to 24x.

Also on tap this week is Temple of the Golden Monkey, a slot that features Tumbling Reels. This feature removes all winning symbols from a payline and replaces them with new ones from above. This trend will continue until you no longer have a winning payline, and can really provide you with some hefty rewards.

There’s also a Free Games Bonus, triggered by the Golden Chest Scatter, which appears on reels 1, 2, and 3 only. During this Bonus Game, you’ll have two Wilds – red and green. The red Wild appears on reels 2/3/4 and the green Wild appears on reels 1/2/3, doubling your chances for winning paylines. Even better, is that any Golden Chest that appears during the Free Games Bonus will be replaced with a green Wild!

Ninja GoldSlotsGolden Nugget
Shields of the WildSlotsGolden Nugget

Ninjas and knights take center stage in the two new games debuting at NJ online casinos this week. Ninja Gold is a 5-reel, 30-payline slot that has 5 Jackpot symbols—Wind, Thunder, Water, Fire and Earth—which are put into play when you get 3 or more Ninja Bonus symbols.

You’ll start with 10 scrolls and pick until you open the BEGIN scroll. Scrolls contain additional spins as well as the 5 Jackpot symbols. Each Jackpot symbol corresponds to a multiplier. For example the Wind Jackpot is 10x the total bet, all the way up to the Earth Jackpot, which is 30x your total bet. To win a Jackpot, you must fill your Countdown Meter, which starts at 18. Get 18 of any one or more symbols before your 10 spins are exhausted and you’ll win the corresponding jackpot.

Then there’s Shields of the Wild, which harkens back the times where kings and knights did battle. This 5-reel, 10-payline slot features 8 different shields as its symbols, a Logo Wild, Sword Scatter, and two bonus features.

Get 3 or more Sword Scatters to trigger the Marching Stacks feature, which has a guaranteed win of at least 20x total bet. It begins with a stack of symbols appearing on reel 5. Each spin that produces a Scatter symbol will upgrade the symbols on all reels. If no Upgrade appears, the stack on reel 5 will move 1 reel to the left, with a stack of symbols matching the current stack added to reel 5. This feature is complete when all 5 reels are filled by stacked symbols. This game may be retriggered once it is complete.

There is also a Shield Wall feature. This occurs after a spin and is randomly awarded. During this feature, all symbols, except your Wild and Scatter, are upgraded to the next higher paying symbol, up to 8 times, yielding bigger wins.

Double StacksSlotsGolden Nugget, Tropicana, Virgin, playMGM
Solar DiscSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM

Time to stack ’em up with this week’s newest games at NJ online casinos. First up is Double Stacks, which has two stacking features. With this game, you’ll find typical old school symbols like fruits, bars, bells and diamond, as well as a Wild Star and Scatter symbol. The first stacking feature is Double Stacked Symbols. During the base game, when the 4 highest paying symbols (diamond, 7, bar, bell) fill up one or more reels, all those symbols will double within the reel and count as two symbols instead of one to calculate wins.

The Free Spins Bonus feature in Double Stacks is triggered by 3/4/5 Scatter symbols and will award 5/15/30 spins, respectively. During this round, all symbols can appear stacked and you’ll also find the second stacking feature: Stacked Wilds. Another bonus of the Free Spins Bonus is when you get 2 or more Scatter symbols, you’ll get additional free spins.

Our second new game is IGT’s Solar Disc, an Aztec-themed slot that also features Stacked Symbols. The symbols include a jaguar, bear, ceremonial cup and mask, key, coin, the Wild, a Solar Disc and the Bonus symbol. The Solar Disc can appear on any of the reels and will reveal a symbol that turns all corresponding symbols Wild. Multiple Solar Disc symbols mean more Wilds for your spin.

The Bonus symbol will appear on reel 1 and combines with one or more Solar Discs to trigger the Free Spins Bonus. You’ll have 10 free spins, with a Solar Disc guaranteed to appear on every spin.

Astronomical MagicSlotsBorgata, Caesars, Golden Nugget, playMGM
Big SpinnerSlotsGolden Nugget

We’re noticing a trend in the newer slot titles landing at NJ online casinos: higher return-to-player percentages (RTPs), This week’s new slots boast 96.05% and 97.11%. That last number is pretty rare, as the majority of slots are in the 94-96% range. That should make it worth at least a quick peek, right? Let’s find out more about these two…

Astronomical Magic is our first new slot, available at four NJ online casinos. In addition to its RTP of 96.05%, the max payout is $552,600—an unusual number to be sure, but one that makes this worth playing. The game features Action Stacked Symbols and a Lucky Frame Feature.

With the Lucky Frame feature, any reels with a gold frame appearing around them are nudged until all positions on that reel have a gold frame, then are each replaced with the same symbol. Any reels with the Magician Wild appearing on them are nudged until all positions on that reel have the magician appearing on them. During this feature, you can also trigger Free Games if you get the magical sun on 3 or more reels. Three will provide 8 free games, 4 will trigger 18, and 5 will trigger 88.

The second slot to debut this week is Big Spinner, which has the BIG RTP. It’s a simple game with only 3 reels and old school fruit symbols, along with a Bar and Spinner symbols. Press the Spin button and this old-school slot will roll out symbols on a 3×3 grid. With any win you have 3 options:

  • Collect: collect your winnings
  • Gamble: Bet on red or black to double your win
  • Spin: Transfer your winnings to the Supermeter

When you transfer your winnings to the Supermeter, it will cost you 20 credits per spin and will afford you the chance on the Big Spinner wheel with its large credit awards. Any fruit line wins during Supermeter spins are awarded like they are on the regular reels, but 2 or more Spinners gives you that chance at the big wheel. You also have the option to choose Collect and go back to regular play. This one isn’t hard to figure out and seemingly pays out often, reinforcing the RTP that it boasts.

Cool LootSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts
Liger LootSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget

Time to rake in some loot with two new slots available at NJ online casinos. High 5 Games is the creator behind both Cool Loot and Liger Loot, fun slots that include a Loot Line Payline, which just adds to your regular winnings. Let’s take a look…

Cool Loot is a 5 reel, 20 payline slot that features sea life as its symbols. You’ll see penguins, starfish, seals, etc., along with the Q-K-A. The Cool Loot logo is your Wild, and the safe is your Scatter, which appears on reels 1/3/5 only. You’ll need 3—in any position—to trigger the Pick Bonus, which awards 1 pick. There are 3 options to choose from, which reveal an award of 5x to 25x your line bet.

Then there is the Loot Line symbol, which appears on top of a regular symbol. It’s literally a layer of ice with an LL in the right corner. This is a bonus payline, in addition to any win you already have. The bonus is paid if you get one LL on each reel in any position. The win is multiplied by the Loot Line Multiplier (22x).

Liger Loot is similar in looks but features cartoonish freaks of nature, like a lion and tiger (liger), crocodile/cat, and penguin/frog. The Liger Loot logo is your Wild and the Liger’s Lair Bonus symbol is the Scatter and appears on reels 1/3/5. Get one on each of those 3 reels to advance to the Liger’s Lair Bonus. Within this bonus are 3 doors. Choose a door to reveal your award, which will be 5x to 25x your bet. Your bonus ends when 0 picks remain.

With this slot, the Loot Line symbol shows up in the bottom right of each regular symbol. Like it’s sister game, you’ll need one in any position on each reel to be rewarded with a bet multiplier of 22x.

Berry BurstSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, playMGM, Resorts
Berry Burst MaxSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, playMGM, Resorts

Fresh fruit during the winter months is always a welcome addition to any table, and the same goes for NJ online casinos, which saw two new slot games make their way onto multiple sites.

Berry Burst and Berry Burst Max debuted at 5 casinos this week, a fun diversion bursting with Cluster Pays. Unlike traditional paylines, these two games uses Cluster Pays, where you need 5 identical symbols to appear adjacent to one another, vertically or horizontally, in order to score a win. Symbols include red ripe raspberries, grapes, orange slices and limes, as well as diamonds, hearts and spades.

There’s also a Wild in the form of an ice cube that can substitute for any symbol, which can appear on all 5 reels in both the main game and in any Respins that might occur. When a Wilds lands on a reel in the main game, it will automatically expand to cover the entire reel AND will activate a Respin. But the best thing about this is that you get paid for any wins prior to and after a Respin, so you can win two or more times on one spin. This also lends itself to covering the whole screen, all 5 reels, in Wilds.

The difference between the two games:

  • Berry Burst has an RTP of 96.56%, a payout of 5,000 coins for all reels covered in Wilds, and a maximum payout of $600,000.
  • Berry Burst Max has an RTP of 96.23%, a payout of 10,000 coins for all reels covered in Wilds, and a maximum payout of a whopping $1,000,000. Now that’s enough to keep you in fresh fruit for many years to come!

Cool LootSlotsGolden Nugget
Dollar LlamaSlotsGolden Nugget

Golden Nugget has been adding games fast and furiously. In October there were 19 new additions and so far this month they have 8 new titles debuting, including the two we’re featuring today.

Cool Loot has an arctic sea life motif and features symbols such as penguins, starfish, seals, etc., as well as the Queen-King-Ace. The Cool Loot logo is your Wild, the Safe is your Scatter and there is a Loot Line symbol, which appears on top of a regular symbol. It’s literally a layer of ice with an LL in the right corner.

The Loot Line is a bonus payline, in addition to any win you already have. The bonus is paid if you get one LL on each reel in any position. The win is multiplied by the Loot Line Multiplier (22x).

Scatters appear on reels 1/3/5 only. You’ll need 3—in any position—to trigger the Pick Bonus, which awards 1 pick. There are 3 options to choose from, which reveal an award of 5x to 25x your line bet. So bundle up and brave the cold and maybe you’ll get lucky enough to earn the Cool Hard Cash Bonus.

The second game takes you up into the mountains of South America to visit the Dollar Llama. The game is about as cutesy as its name, featuring animals dressed for winter and stylized numbers and letters.

Symbols include 2 llamas, a monkey, and the capybara, 5, 9 and Jack-Ace. There is your Wild, which can be stacked, and can come with the Scatter Bucks feature. This feature gives you bonus wins for getting the Wild with a credit symbol on it. Reel 1 can provide 25-100 credits; reel 2 is 25-500, and it escalates from there. Better yet, you can get a Stacked Wild on a reel, each with a monetary value!

The Golden Llama is the Scatter and appears on reels 2-5 only. If you get 3 or more, you will receive 7 free games; get 4 and you’ll receive 15 free games, both which appear on a different reelset.

Pride of EgyptSlotsGolden Nugget
Coins of EgyptSlotsGolden Nugget, Tropicana, Virgin

You’ll need to head to ancient Egypt to explore the two new slots that made their way onto NJ online casinos this week. Konami’s Pride of Egypt and Coins of Egypt by NetEnt are both worthy of your time and offer unique features.

Pride of Egypt features Action Stacked Symbols, a Copy & Paste Feature, Free Games Bonus and a Balance of Fortune Bonus. The Copy & Paste Feature is something we haven’t seen before – or at least with that name. When the same symbol appears on every position on Reel 1, at least one of the remaining 4 reels will also have the same configuration, setting up a possible big win.

The Balance of Fortune Bonus is an alternative to the Free Games Bonus. You can choose to exchange your free spins by selecting Credit Prize. The Credit Prize is a random amount, with a minimum value of $25. The more games exchanged, the greater the bonus, up to $407,700.

You’ll find both a Free Spins Bonus and the Pharaoh Coin feature over on Coins of Egypt. The Pharaoh Coin feature occurs during the main game, and you’ll find that 1 to 3 coins (with values ranging from 2x to 15x your bet) can appear on reels 1, 2 and/or 3 attached to a regular symbol. All coins visible are collected if the Pharaoh symbol appears on reel 5.

Free Spins feature is triggered by the rotating orb. You’ll need 3 to enter the round, and they will appear on reels 1-3-5. During your free spins, you’ll collect Ruby Eagle Seals, Emerald Snake Seals and Golden Cat Seals, which appear on reel 5. Each time you land one, it’s collected in a chest. Once three identical chest seals are collected, your Free Spins will end and you’ll be awarded the amount that appears on the chests.

Summer may be over, but you can still enjoy the sights and sounds (and fun times) of a carnival, with one of the newest games at NJ online casinos. Slingo Carnival, the latest in a long line of the bingo/slot hybrid games is a whole lotta fun, with multiple bonuses that are reminiscent of the carnival games and rides you loved as a child.

You’ll start with a 5×5 grid filled with numbers. For each bet, you will get 10 spins, with each spin bringing up a number under each column of the bingo card. The goal is to match the number and complete lines much like bingo. The game also features Jokers and Super Jokers, which allow you to mark off numbers of your choice, a Free Spin symbol and a Devil, which blocks any number from appearing on a column during that spin.

Once you complete 5 or more lines (or Slingos), a bonus will be triggered. There are 7 bonus rounds available, including knocking down wooden milk bottles, popping balloons with a dart or taking a ride on a carousel. Should you be close to having enough lines for a bonus after your 10 spins are exhausted, you can buy extra spins to continue your game. The price for each spin is shown on the Spin button (and will escalate the more times you use it).

Aladdin's LegacySlotsGolden Nugget
All That CashSlotsGolden Nugget

Ready to take a magic carpet ride this week? You can do just that with one of the new slot titles at NJ online casinos. Aladdin’s Legacy has hit Golden Nugget Casino, as has All That Cash, an exclusive offering.

Aladdin’s Legacy, from NYX Gaming, pays homage to one of our favorite genies. Symbols include two men of mystery, a desert oasis, cauldron of scrolls, agora, and the Jack-Ace. The Magic Carpet is your Wild and Genie’s Lamp is the Scatter.

Three or more lamps will take you to the Free Games feature, which awards up to 20 free spins. During this round, symbols change to single gems. There is also one multi-gem symbol that is your Wild and a magical jeweled vault, which can appear randomly on reel 5. When it does, it will trigger the Into the Cave Bonus.

This bonus game requires you to correctly guess the 3 outer gems that will give you access to the Treasure Room Bonus. Accurately guess and you will enter a room with a series of paths inscribed on the wall. Each correct move along the path will earn you a prize. Make it to the end for the big cash award.

All That Cash is a bit simpler, with 5 reels and only 3 paylines. The first reel is the most important, as it’s the reel that you want a green $ to appear on. Should one show up, it will be multiplied by the number or numbers that appear on reels 2/3/4/5. Those numbers start at 0 and go to 9.

Needless to say, that should you get 0-0-0-0-0 on those 4 reels, your payout is zilch. However, if you should get 0-0-3-0, your bet is multiplied by 30; if you get 0-1-0-5, your bet is multiplied by 105. While you may not see a lot of payouts, they can be quite large.

Additionally, there is a Jackpot symbol that can appear in your first reel. Should this happen, you’re awarded 10,000 times your bet, which can make for a pretty big reward.

Treasures of the DeepSlotsBorgata, playMGM

It’s a brand new month and there are two brand new games to be played at your favorite NJ online casinos. You can head back to the 1940s for a little Maltese Falcon-type action with Jenson Matlock and the Gold Peacock or head down to the bottom of the ocean with Treasures of the Deep.

Jenson Matlock and the Gold Peacock features a somewhat graphic/comic book look, with a handsome leading man in search of a precious object. Symbols include Jenson Matlock, two beautiful women and one very mean looking man, as well as Q/K/A. You’ve also got your Wild, which appears on reels 2/3/4 and the Gold Peacock Scatter. The game features Tumbling Reels, also known as Cascading Reels. After a win, the winning symbols are removed and all remaining symbols move down and are replaced with new ones. You can win multiple times on one spin this way.

The Free Games Bonus is triggered by 3 Gold Peacocks appearing in any position on reels 2/3/4. You’ll receive an initial 10 free games on a different reelset and you can retrigger the bonus up to 50 games.

You’ll be swimming with the fished in the underwater game Treasures of the Deep, which features marine symbols, such as fish, diver’s boat, starfish, and 10-Ace. There’s also a diving helmet (Wild), pearl shell (Scatter), and lobster (Jackpot symbol – 5 of which are worth 10,000 coins).

You’ll need three Scatter symbols showing up on reels 2/3/4 to enter the Free Spins Bonus. Here you’ll get 5 free spins with a 2x multiplier, and each spin guarantees you a win that is at least equal to your original bet. This works out nicely, particularly since this feature can be retriggered.

Ghost PiratesSlotsTropicana, Virgin
Snow MonkeysSlotsGolden Nugget

Heading into the scariest night of the year, we have one new slot appropriate for the Halloween holiday, and a new Golden Nugget offering that has an unheard of maximum payout just shy of $1 million. Let’s see what NJ online casinos have to offer….

Ghost Pirates is a new NetEnt slot that looks very much like a movie poster for Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise. The slot takes place out on the open ocean on a haunted pirate ship and features character symbols such as One-Eyed Ed, Peggy Rotten, Polly the parrot, and a Mad Monkey. The game also features Wilds, Multipliers and a Treasure Chest Scatter.

Spin your way to three or more Scatter symbols, which appear in a row from left to right, and you’ll enter the Free Spins round, which can be retriggered. Probably the best parts of this slot are the 243 ways to win and a return-to-player percentage of 96.8%.

For something a little different, you can head a Japanese hot spring and play with the Snow Monkeys. With 720 ways to win and a whopper of a payout that amounts to $988,800, it’s definitely worth a chance.

The reelset is a 3-4-5-4-3 configuration and symbols include 3 different snow monkeys (including an adorable baby) and 5 types of flower, as well as your Wild, Scatter, and Free Games symbols. The Wild only appears on reels 2/3/4. Scatter symbols awards pay only, no bonus games.

There is a Free Games symbol and when it appears in any position on all five reels it will trigger the Bonus. You’ll get 8 free games on a different reelset with the ability to retrigger up to 240 games.

Crazy Money IISlotsGolden Nugget
DaimyoSlotsGolden Nugget

If you like slots that are rich in bonuses, then two of the most recent NJ online casinos additions should fit the bill. Definitely worth testing out are Crazy Money II and Daimyo, two very different games that offer a wealth of fun.

Crazy Money II is a progressive slot with four Jackpots: Little Crazy, More Crazy, Major Crazy and Super Crazy. These jackpots are available to you if you play Max Bet ($10) and during the Mint Bonus. The Mint Bonus is just one of three bonuses.

There is the Money Wheel Bonus, triggered by 3 or more Bonus Scatter symbols. The Wheel has 8 sections, each with its own prize. Prizes vary based on how many Bonus Scatter symbols you land. There’s also the Money Catch Bonus, which is reminiscent of a TV game show booth where you grab as much cash as you can as it rains down on you.

The Mint Bonus, which can lead to really big wins, uses an alternate reel set. You’re awarded 12 Free Spins, during which Gold Coin Scatters will appear and count toward unlocking a Progressive Jackpot.

With Daimyo, an Asian-inspired game from Games Lab, you’ll be looking for the Gold and Silver Mask Wilds, which substitute for all symbols, including the Gong Scatter symbol. The Gong is your ticket to the Free Games Bonus features, of which there are three.

The Extra Wilds Bonus provides 20 Free Games on a different reelset with the addition of a Silver Mask Wild appearing on reels 1/2/4/5. Free games can be retriggered. The Shogun Bonus gives you 6 free games with Gold Mask Wilds covering the entirety of reel 3. Free games can also be retriggered.

Finally is the Mighty Daimyo Bonus, which will give you 9 Free Games on a different reelset. When the Gold Mask Wild appears on reel 3, it will fill that reel and replicate onto 1 or 2 additional reels. During this bonus, the Win-Win Feature is available. It will award a bonus prize if the overall win is 10x the total bet or less. Should you be so unlucky as to not win anything during the Mighty Daimyo Feature, then you’ll receive 100x your bet due to this additional feature, which we believe is really a win-win for players.

PolterheistSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts

It’s time for spooky slots to make an appearance on NJ online casinos, and we’ve got one new ghost-themed game for this week, as well as a somewhat retro slot that is a bit intimidating to play. Both are worth a test and may just fill your Halloween basket with lots of treats.

First up is Polterheist, a game based off the ghostly phenomenon that causes physical disturbances. Developed by SG Digital, the game features hilariously dressed ghosts, all dressed up for Halloween in some sort of Western garb (kerchiefs, cowboy hats, bolos). Other symbols include the Jack-Ace, Wilds, and a Gold Safe that acts as the Scatter.

Bonus features include the Haunted Wilds—which places Wilds randomly on reels 2-3-4 at the start of any spin, Ghost Break-In—where ghost symbols can be added to create Stacked Symbols, and the Free Games Bonus—where you’ll get 8 free games with a random multiplier (2x, 3x, or 5x). For every additional safe you get on a spin, you’ll get one additional game.

Also on tap is Ambassador, a two-section slot that appears very much like what you would see in a brick-and-mortar casino. The lower part of the slot is a 4×3 reel containing various fruits, bars, bells, stars and a Joker Wild. Wins are awarded for between 1 and 4 symbols, with some symbols having specific pay rules.

The upper part of the slot contains the Gamble option, the Supermeter, the Fruit Win Bonus and the Ambassador Wheel Bonus. The Gamble option allows you to Gamble on each win. In fact, you must either choose to Collect your win or Gamble.

You can choose to play the Supermeter Bonus Game after a win by pressing the Spin button. The Fruit Pot Bonus is won by lighting up every type of fruit available in the game. To light one up, you must get 4 of a kind. When all fruits are lit, a prize of 5,000 coins is awarded.

The Ambassador Wheel Bonus is achieved by landing 3 or 4 star symbols. There are 10 segments on the wheel and, depending on your bet amount, certain segments will be illuminated and spin around the wheel. If the wheel stops with an illuminated arrow pointing at the x1000 position, you will be awarded the win.

Warrior MaidenSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse
Tiny TreasuresSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse

It’s all about girl power this week, with two new slot titles making their appearance at NJ online casinos. We’ve got the battle-ready Warrior Maiden and the magic of the fairies in Tiny Treasures, both products of High 5 Games.

Warrior Maiden boasts 720 ways to win on its unusual 3-4-5-4-3 reelset, and features a whole host of symbols: the Warrior Maiden, two flowers, Jack-Ace, Wild Scatter and a Free Games symbol. The Wild, which can appear alone or as a Stacked Wild, only appears on reels 2-3-4. The Scatter awards a payout only, as there is a separate Free Games symbol.

It can be a bit difficult to get the Free Games bonus, as you need the symbol to appear on each of the 5 reels. When you do this, you’ll get 8 free spins, which happen on a separate reelset. The Free Games can be retriggered, up to 240 free games.

Tiny Treasures is set in the fairy realm and has an unusual reelset as well. The first reel is the fairy column, while the remaining reels are all flowers, with symbols showing up in the center of each one. Symbols are numerical only, from 0-9. A spin may yield only one number landing on the 16 flowers, but more often than not, two or more numbers appear.

Should a fairy appear to the left of any row that contains a number, you’re awarded the value displayed on that row, times the bet multiplier that appears on reel 1. There is also a Jackpot symbol, which appears on reel 1 only, and awards 10,000x the bet multiplier.

Jackpot Jester 200,000SlotsGolden Nugget
AbraCardabraSlotsGolden Nugget, SugarHouse

Golden Nugget has been busy of late, adding quite a few new games, two of which we’ll feature here today. One, Jackpot Jester 200,000 is the sister to a new game we featured on September 25th—Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge (see below for details). The second is a unique hybrid of poker and slots, called AbraCardabra. Let’s check in and see what we’re “dealing” with!

Jackpot Jester 200,000 is a game that looks and feels like you’re sitting in a brick-and-mortar casino. The façade of the game is just like an old school slot, featuring bells, cherries, lemons, 7s, diamonds, strawberries and the Jester Wild. The bottom half of the machine is your base game, while the upper half is the Super Game. In order to play the Super Game, you must bet 20. When doing so, each payout for a win of 3 symbols will be added to your Super game total.

For every 100 credits added to the Super Game, you can take a spin by hitting the blue button on the right. This activates the Super Game. All wins accumulated in the Super Game are added to the total of the Super Game. You can continue to play until your total is less than 100 or you can cash out your winnings at any time by hitting the payout button.

AbraCardabra is a poker-style slot features playing cards adorned with fruit, bars, and 7s. To play, you simply hit the Spin button and 5 cards appear. You may hold one or more of the cards. Press the Draw button to remove any cards you don’t want and you’ll be dealt replacement cards. Wins are awarded when 3-5 of the same cards are displayed. At random times, a Magician’s Hat will appear and new cards are dealt that may help in making a winning combo.

There is also a Bonus card. If you get 3 or more Bonus cards, the AbraCardabra Bonus is initiated. With this bonus game, you’re dealt 17 cards, filling the top 5 card positions and the 12 smaller ones underneath. Wins are paid on the top 5 and then any cards included in the win are removed. Once a shuffle is done, new cards are dealt to fill in the blanks. Once you have used all your remaining cards and all wins are paid, the bonus game is over. Should you get 3 Bonus cards while in the bonus round, your multiplier will increase by 1x.

Triple TopazSlotsGolden Nugget
Triple HootSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

If one is good and two are better, then three must be great! Which is what we have with this week’s newest games at NJ online casinos. First up is Triple Topaz by High 5 Games, available at Golden Nugget, and then we have Triple Hoot, another High 5 slot, also available at Golden Nugget, as well as Mohegan Sun and Resorts casinos.

Triple Topaz has a more unusual reelset, with a 3-4-5-4-3 configuration and 720 ways to win. The topaz appears as a single gem, double gem or triple gem. This means that you can get up to 15 topaz symbols on a winning line, making for a really nice win. Other symbols include an emerald and a ruby, as well as a 5, Jack, Queen, King and Ace, and a Wild. One Wild substitutes for 3 single topaz symbols and acts normally with the other symbols.

Three or more of the Free Games symbol will activate the bonus. You initially get 6 spins, with the possibility to retrigger additional spins. The other bonus feature is Find Your Fortune. You’ll need 3 FYF symbols to advance to the bonus, where you select a gem that will determine your award. There are 5 tiers in this bonus and you can advance all the way up if you avoid the Collect symbol.

Triple Hoot is very similar in play to Triple Topaz. The owl comes in singles, pairs, or triplets, while the other symbols— watering can, gardening tools, 5, Jack-Ace—are all singles. The Wild acts as a triple owl and 3 or more pink eggs will take you to the Free Spins bonus, again with 6 initial spins and the ability to retrigger. Three blue eggs are what will trigger the Find Your Fortune bonus, where you can amass up to 5,000 credits in one tier alone.

Great Balloon AdventureSlotsGolden Nugget, Mohegan Sun, Resorts
Legend of FortuneSlotsGolden Nugget

Adventure is the name of the game in slots this week at NJ online casinos. We have the Great Balloon Adventure and Legend of Fortune making their debut this week, both of which has some unusual characteristics.

The Great Balloon Race offers you 243 ways to win, with a minimum bet of 40 cents and a maximum payout of $460,000. Symbols include 4 ballooning characters, the Queen-Ace (set in balloons), and a Wild. Symbols fly up from the bottom of the screen to fill the reels. If you get a win, the winning symbols fly out the top of the reels and replacements come in at the bottom. This Tumbling Reels features allows for multiple wins on one spin.

Championship Cups are the Scatter symbol, and you’ll need 3 appearing in any position on reels 2/3/4 to activate the Free Spins Bonus. You’ll get 10 free spins on a different reelset. You can retrigger the Free Spins game, for a maximum of 60 free spins.

Legend of Fortune is a take on Lara Croft and her adventures leading to treasures. Symbols include Legend of Fortune, toucan, frog, diary, shield, and the Jack-Ace. A compass serves as your Wild and the golden Aztec god acts as your Scatter symbol (and appears on reels 2/3/4 only).

There are a number of unique features. The Wild Walls can occur during any base spin, and they come down to crush one or more reels turning the entire reel Wild. This will start on reel 5, them move to reel 1, then reel 4, etc. The walls crush the reels until a win occurs. There is also the Bonus Feature Selector which is triggered by landing 3 Scatter symbols on reels 2/3/4. You are taken to 3 passages, each of which leads to a different bonus: Temple Escape Free Spins, Tumbling Free Spins, and a Stepping Stones Bonus. Which will you choose?

Ever AfterSlotsGolden Nugget
JumanjiSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget,
Mohegan Sun, Resorts

Movie titles are the theme of the week at NJ online casinos. There are two new slots to enjoy this week, the first of which goes old school fairy tale, while the second is a fantasy action film that originally debuted in 1995 and had a recent follow-up film do smashingly at the box office.

First up is Ever After, based on the story of Cinderella. This title comes from a 1998 movie starring Drew Barrymore, although the game itself is more reminiscent of the early Disney incarnation of Cinderella, or the original fairy tale. Your symbols include a princess and prince, queen, wizard, owl, mouse and 4 card suits…and a very Magnificent Mirror. You also have your Potion Wild and a castle’s stained glass window serves as the Scatter.

Randomly activate the Mirror Magnificent feature and a whole new world opens up. Faye the fairy appears randomly and enchants up to 3 symbols on all reels. She may also grant you a Super-Charged Potion Wild that can expand to fill the whole reel, making for some nice wins. And, if the Magnificent Mirror feature is active, you’ll not only have the Potion Wild, but also a Wild Queen, Wild Knight, Wild Bard and Wild Wizard.

While it takes 3 Bonus symbols to earn your Free Games Bonus, it can be retriggered with just 2 Enchanted Bonus symbols. During Free Games Faye the fairy enchants symbols on every Free Game Spin on Reel 1 — characters can turn Wild and gems can come to life as extra character symbols.

Next is Jumanji, where a fantastical board game leads its players to the jungle. This NetEnt slot utilizes a reelset with a 3-4-5-4-3 configuration and symbols include wild animals and a Jack-Ace. There is a Wild symbol and the Scatter is portrayed by the Jumanji game box.

There are four special features: Monsoon Wilds, Monkey Mayhem, Wild Stampede, and Sticky Vines. Each has a unique addition to a spin and is activated randomly. There are also 4 Free Spins features, highly unheard of, and each pairs up with one of the special features.

The real treat is the Jumanji Board Game. Here you will roll two dice, which will determine how far your token will move on the board. You will get 6 dice rolls for 3 Scatters, 7 for 4 Scatters and 8 for 5 Scatters. Squares on the board game include 1x and up of your bet, plus two squares for each of the four special Free Games features. There is also a Mystery Feature within this game. If your token lands on the Mystery Feature a carousel of Free Spin features, coin wins, and 2 extra dice rolls appears with in the Jumanji circle.

Jackpot Jester Wild NudgeSlotsGolden Nugget
Sparkling RosesSlotsCaesars, SugarHouse

We’ve officially entered autumn, when the weather turns chilly and housebound activities increase, which means you have more time to play new slot games at NJ online casinos and we’ve got a couple for you this week that are both fun and a bit different.

Jackpot Jester Wild Nudge is a recent NextGen release that is reminiscent of early slots, with cherries, plums, diamonds, bells, 7s, and a Jester Wild, all played on a 3×3 reel with only 5 paylines. The game is very simple, with low betting options (10 cents to $80) and a relatively small Max Payout of $100,000.

You’ll find that there are actually two reel configurations shown on the screen, the bottom of which is your base game and is played with either Bet 10 or Bet 20. With Bet 20, all wins transfer to the Super Game Meter. Once you accumulate 100 coins in the meter you can choose to play the Super Game, which is the top reelset. This can happen after as few as 1 or 2 wins. Each 100 coin amount = 1 spin in the Super Game. During this game, the Jester becomes a Stacked Wild and any reels that contain a Jester Wild are nudged until the full reel becomes Jester Wilds, making for some nice wins.

Konami produced our second slot called Sparkling Roses, a 5 reel game with 30 paylines. Here, the lowest bet is 45 cents, which covers the paylines plus additional features. The game utilizes Action Stacked Symbols, which are a woman, bag of emeralds, perfume bottle, key and 10-Ace. There’s also a four gem Wild (appearing on reels 2/3/4/5 only) and the Sparkling Rose Scatter symbol. As per usual, you’ll need 3 or more roses to advance to the Free Spins Bonus game.

With this game there is a Mystery Multiplier, which can occur randomly during the base game. Multipliers (1x to 144x) and their positions can show up anywhere at any time and can complete winning paylines with only the first 4 symbols mentioned above. Better yet, you can get two or more multipliers in a win, significantly increasing the payout.

Fortune and GlorySlotsOcean
Dragon PaysSlotsOcean

High Flyer Games and Ocean online casino have paired up to bring you two new slot titles, both of which have one unique feature.

The first takes you off to Rome, into the historic Colosseum to battle for Fortune and Glory. While this game has the typical 5 reels, you have the option of playing with 1, 5, 15, or 25 lines—or if you want all positions on reels 1-5 covered, play 1024 ways. The game includes an Eagle Flag Wild, which appears on reels 2/3/4 only and a Gold Coin Scatter, which can earn you a Free Spins Bonus. That bonus game comes with up to 30 spins and multipliers up to 27x.

The one unique feature? Respin4Five, where under certain conditions you get to hold the reels with the top paying symbol and respin the remaining 4 reels.

Next up is Dragon Pays, an Asian-themed slot decked out in bold gold and red graphics. Here you have the option of playing 20 standard paylines or play 243 ways to win, where you just need to match symbols on adjacent reels. The Dragon is the Wild, while a Gold Coin acts as the Scatter symbol. This symbol pays when 3 or more appear on adjacent reels. However, the Free Games Bonus is only available if you’re playing 243 ways to win.

There are 3 options for your Free Games: 13 spins (3x/5x/8x multiplier), 10 games (8x/10/15x multiplier) or 8 spins (10x/15x/30x multiplier). Multipliers depend on the number of Scatter symbols – 3, 4 or 5. If you’re really daring, you can go for the Mystery Choice spins, which essentially does the choosing for you.

Here the unique feature is the 2nd Chance Respin, which occurs during the bonus round. If you land a Wild that is not part of a winning payline, that Wild will hold and you’ll get an auto respin.

Kingdom's EdgeSlotsCaesars, Golden Nugget
Swipe & RollSlotsBorgata, Caesars, Golden Nugget, playMGM

We go back in time with our two latest slot additions to NJ online casinos. The days of knights and swords is the age in which Kingdom’s Edge bases its play, while the quintessential 1950’s diner is central to the Swipe & Roll slot.

Kingdom’s Edge, from NextGen, has several interesting features/bonus games, based on the King and his shield. There is a Gold and a Silver King, both of which are Wild but appear on different reels. (Gold on 1 and Silver 2-5). The King’s Shield is the Scatter symbol, awarding Free Games if you get 3 or more. Symbols include the Heroes—male warrior, female warrior, dwarf warrior (reminiscent of Gimli in Lord of the Rings), and a witch/sorceress—and the Royals, which are the 9-Ace.

If the Gold Wilds appear stacked on reel 1 and covering all positions, they will trigger the Rally the Troops feature and free spins. During that time the Gold Wild stack remains in place. Then, if one or more Silver Wilds appear, each one will expand to the full height of the reel. Should a Hero also appear on the same reel as a Silver Wild, your win is multiplied by 1. Any Shield symbol appearing on the same reel as a Silver Wild, awards 1 extra Rally the Troops spin.

Get 3 or more Shields to trigger the Defend the Gates Free Games feature. During your free games, any Gold Wild Stack that appears, even partially, on the first reel will nudge it to cover the whole reel. Should a Gold Wild Stack cover the whole reel on its own, you will be awarded 5 or 10 extra free games.

While that sounds complicated, the Swipe & Roll most certainly is not. It’s fairly simplistic, but fun slot that takes place in a very retro diner, with 1950s music. Symbols are old school too, including the watermelon, bell (Scatter) orange, diamond (Wild), plum, and Jack-Ace.

The Diamond Wild comes in two variations: 1x and 3x. The 1x Wild can appear on any reel in the base game and during Wild Respins; the 3x Wild appears on reels 2/3/4 only. Get 3 or more Wilds on the reels and you will trigger the Wild Respin. All Wilds hold position during these spins, making for some pretty good payouts.

To get the Free Spins Bonus, you will need to get 3 Scatters on reels 2/3/4. (You can also activate Free Spins Bonus by getting a Scatter symbol on the Coin Wheel.) During this round, a different reelset appears with only 3 reels. You get to swipe each wheel, up or down once, in any order. The total sum of the coins is your win.

There’s also a random Coin Wheel feature that can appear during the base game only. It contains Coin Wins, Scatter symbol and Arrow symbol.

Foxin Football: Football FeverSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts

Well, given that the NFL season is upon us, you might think that the newest slot available at NJ online casinos is all about the pigskin, however that’s the American way of thinking. This game is all about football/futbol/soccer, and celebrates the 2018 World Cup. Foxin Football: Football Fever is the latest in the series of Foxin games, following Foxin Wins, Foxin Wins Again, and Foxin Wins: A Very Foxin Christmas.

This game is set in a stadium with a cheering crowd and features 9-Ace, a wad of cash, trophy, football playing foxes, and a fox toodling around in a convertible. There is also a Fox pup, which can appear on Reel 3 only during the base game and can turn symbols Wild for enhanced wins. Your basic Wild symbol is Referee Fox.

Thee are several bonus features in this game. First are the Random Bonuses, which include Fox Funds and Leprechaun Shakedown. These are triggered randomly and will award cash prizes. Then there is the typical Free Games feature, triggered by 3 gold pots (Scatter). You’ll be awarded 10 spins with a double multiplier. The free games can also be retriggered once for a total of 20 games. You’ll also find that the Fox pups appear more frequently during free spins.

For a bit of extra change you can use the SuperBet level feature that provides extras on your spins. This includes the addition of Fox pups on the middle three wheels at Level 1 and all reels if you play Level 2.

Fairytale Legends: Mirror MirrorSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM
French RouletteTable GamesGolden Nugget

Mixing it up this week with the new games available at NJ online casinos. We’ve got one slot and one new table game that have debuted. The first is the newest in the fairytale series from NetEnt, a slot that follows in the footsteps of Fairytale Legends: Red Riding Hood and Fairytale Legends: Hansel & Gretel.

Fairytale Legends: Mirror, Mirror plays off the tale of Snow White by the Brothers Grimm. The game features 11 symbols, plus the Mirror. The famed Mirror, which appears on reel 3 only in the base game (and 1-3 in Free Spins) can transform either into the Princess or the Queen and you are given a respin. The game comes without a Wild, but there are 3 random features (Fairy Magic Spin, Fairy Surprise and the Fairy Mirror), as well as three Bonus features (Mining Bonus, Free Spins Bonus, Coin Win Bonus). Lots of fun to play and a high 96.48% return to player percentage.

For something a little different we have French Roulette. This version of the popular table game is from NetEnt and looks very similar to other roulette games, with the exception that everything on the board is in French (impair = odd, pair = even, etc.). This version features the lowest house edge, and in this case it is 2.7%. It also utilizes a single-zero wheel in addition to the 36 numbered spots—meaning your odds are better that double zero, which has a total of 38. There’s also the La Partage Rule. The La Partage Rule allows you to lose only half your bet if the ball lands on zero and you’ve made an even-money bet on black/red, even/odd, or low/middle/high row of numbers. You also have a display to the right of the wheel with Hot Numbers and Cold Numbers to help you form an opinion on where to bet. Bets are as low as 10 cents and as high as $5,000, with a max payout of $46,200.

Jungle JackSlotsGolden Nugget
Three GracesSlotsGolden Nugget

Two new High 5 slots debuted recently at Golden Nugget’s NJ online casino, both with similar layouts, bets, max payouts and features. Upon first glance, you’ll notice that the reel layout on both Jungle Jack and Three Graces is 6 across, rather than the usual 5, and that both reels 1 and 6 have only 3 rows, while reels 2-5 have 4 rows each. Both games also feature standard Wilds, Stacked Wilds and Expanding Wilds, as well as the typical Scatter, all of which appear on reels 2-5 only.

Jungle Jack is a comical take on Tarzan and Jane, with symbols including Jungle Jack, Jungle Jane, a cigar-chomping gorilla, and the Jack-Ace. Bananas serve as your Scatter symbol, while the banana tree is the Wild.

The Three Graces, the title of the second slot, is a reference to the Greek goddesses of grace, also known as the Charites or Kharites. These lovelies serve as three of your symbols, along with the Jack-Ace. There is also a Wild and a Scatter symbol (jug of wine and the grapes it is made from).

With both games you’ll need 3 Scatter symbols to enter the Free Games Bonus, which uses different reels. While this feature is somewhat elusive, given that there are so few base symbols (7 in each), it can make it easier for larger wins, given the ability for Wilds to stack and expand.

Volts and BoltsSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM
Starburst TouchSlotsOcean

Heading into the long Labor Day weekend, we’ve found two new slots that made their debut on NJ online casinos. You’re gonna love Volts and Bolts, the latest from SG Digital, which plays up the crazed scientist and his mad inventions, as well as Starburst Touch, a game that follows in the footsteps of the popular Starburst online slot.

Volts and Bolts is a fun game that takes place in the laboratory of our mad scientist (who also serves as the Scatter symbol). Other symbols include a voltmeter, wrench, brain, Jack through Ace, and a battery that serves as the Wild. Three or more of the scientist symbols will take you to the Free Spins Bonus where you will get 12 Free Spins with a bet multiplier up to 100x your bet. A second bonus is also available: the Robot Bonus. You can trigger this bonus by landing 6 or more robots anywhere on the reels. During the round, you’ll get 5 free spins, where the robots stick throughout the round. These transform into larger Robot Shapes. Once the 5 spins are complete the Robot Shapes transform into Electricity Reels that spin with a variety of awards for either a bonus or cash (up to 5,000x your bet!)

Starburst Touch is a bit simpler, with brightly colored jewels, bars and 7s as your symbols. There is only one bonus feature—the Starburst Wild—but it combines expanding Stacked Wilds with Free Spins. The feature is awarded when you get a Starburst, which only occur on reels 2, 3, and 4. You’ll get 3 free spins with one reel becoming Stacked Wilds. If you’re really lucky, you will retrigger this feature and get a second reel with Stacked Wilds, making or some pretty good payouts.

Spooky HouseSlotsOcean
Winning WolfSlotsOcean

Ocean online casino has ramped up with 114 slots in its library, just a month after its debut. Among those choices are two exclusive games available for play. The first gets a jump on Halloween with Spooky House, plus there’s a nod to Native American wildlife with Winning Wolf.

Spooky House, a product of Novomatic and High Flyer Games, takes the scary slot genre and makes it friendly, with a fluffy black cat, smiling pumpkin, haunted house, cauldron of coins scarlet rose and the 9 through Ace. The sexy witch on a broomstick acts as your Wild. All symbols, including the Wild can be stacked. The game also has a Gamble feature, and you must either choose Collect or Gamble after each win, rather than assume that the win has been credited. You’ll also have a Free Spins round that can be retriggered.

Winning Wolf, a slot designed by Ainsworth, includes a wolf, eagle, mountain lion, buffalo, and a squirrel, plus 9 through Ace, as your symbols. The wolf acts as the Wild. A mountain is your Scatter symbol, which leads to the bonus round. The bonus round is comprised of 8 free spins, during which all Wilds are Sticky Wilds. While these appear on the center 3 reels only (reels 2, 3, and 4), they can really add up over the course of the spins, yielding some nice wins.

Lion Festival Boosted CelebrationSlotsGolden Nugget
Very FruitySlotsGolden Nugget, Caesars

Konami has let loose another Asian-inspired game with Lion Festival Boosted Celebration. This game has quite a few symbols but they can be stacked on the reels and the center reel has two symbols in each frame, making for easier wins. You’ll also find a Wild symbol in the form of a dragon head mask and a pagoda that serves as the Bonus to trigger the Free Games round. You can win 8, 10 or 15 free games, with all wins doubled.

At the onset of your Free Games, the Balance of Fortune feature occurs. You may then continue on playing the free games or you can exchange that opportunity by selecting the Super Free Game option. For every 5 regular free games you are awarded, you will get 1 Super Free Game, with all pays being 7x, 12x, or 18x. You may retrigger both the regular Free Games and the Super Free Games. (NOTE: If you are awarded 8 free games, you may play the first 3 as regular free games, then opt into the Super Free Games with your remaining 5. That way you don’t lose those 3.)

Also on tap this week at NJ online casinos is Very Fruity, an SG Digital product that reverts back to the old days of cherries, watermelons, grapes and other fruity symbols. There is also a Diamond Wild and a Sun Bonus symbol, which has a cash value.

The Sun Bonus is awarded when you get 5 or more Sun Bonus symbols. The sum of all symbols is your winning amount. You’ll also be awarded 5 free games. Each Big Cherry Scatter that appears during this round awards a value equal to the Sun Bonus amount you already won, meaning those simple cherries can be worth a fortune.

EggOMaticSlotsTropicana, Virgin

We’ve got a fun new slot for you to play at two NJ online casinos. This one has a very 1950s feel with this film reels, graphics and robotic chickens and eggs. The premise behind EggOMatic, according the intro movie, is that production at the egg factory is down, so the owner invents a machine to subsidize the hens. This machine is central to the game, where you will find the symbols represented by colored metal eggs, hens and a rooster.

The EggOMatic itself is located to the right of the screen and produces 4 different bonus eggs that randomly spit out onto a conveyor belt above the reels. Land an egg above a reel with a Wild symbol to crack it open and reveal a bonus. It can either be a Coin Egg (50 to 2,500 coins), Free Spins Egg (7 to 50 free spins), a Spreading Wild Egg (which turns all adjacent and diagonal symbols into Wilds) and the Surprise Egg.

Should you get the Free Spins Egg, the round begins with 4 eggs on the conveyor belt. A fifth egg is added during the first spin. Each subsequent spin will move the belt along and add a new egg. You can retrigger spins by getting a Free Spins Egg during this round.

This is an enjoyable, creative slot by NetEnt that will surely keep players coming back for more.

Bar-X XLSlotsGolden Nugget
Red FortuneSlotsGolden Nugget

Golden Nugget has rolled out two new games for you to enjoy, one of which harkens back to the old arcade days and the other an Asian-inspired slot with a decent RTP and maximum payout.

The first game is the newest Electrocoin product in their Bar-X line. First was Bar-X, then Bar-X Colossal, and now there’s Bar-X XL. This retro-styled game features Xs and Os, Bars, 7s, a Wild and a special Bonus symbol. The reels appear to be 5 across, with 3 rows down, but the center 3 reels spin together. They can land with 9 separate symbols or with a whole or partial XL symbol. When a complete XL symbol appears on these center reels, it will hold and trigger a respin of reels 1 & 5. Partial XL symbols can be used to make a winning payline, but will not retrigger the spins. The game also features a Wild symbol (which can also be XL) and bonus symbols, which are only XL and will contain 15, 25 or 30 Free Spins on their face. The most confusing and confounding part of this game is the use of the Os. These symbols do not pay out at all, under any circumstance, not even for 5 of a kind. So they take up room on the reels, blocking out paying symbols. Since there are only 4 paying symbols, one could argue that it’s better than having 10 different symbols to try to match, but I’m just not sure.

Red Fortune, our second new game, is a bit more user-friendly. This Asian-inspired game contains symbols of good fortune (jade pendant, bamboo, unopened lotus flower, tangerine, gold crown, plus 9-Ace), all of which can come stacked. The Yin/Yang symbol acts as your Scatter and you’ll need at least 3 to trigger the Free Games round. During that round, additional free games are awarded if you get 2 or more Yin/Yang symbols. The Chinese character symbol is the Wild and substitutes for any symbol during regular play. During the Free Games, they are turned into 2x or 3x if they fall on a winning payline, greatly enhancing your payout. The return to player percentage is 96.01% with a maximum payout of over $450,000.

MegaJackpots CleopatraSlotsCaesars, Mohegan Sun, Resorts
MegaJackpots Siberian StormSlotsCaesars, Mohegan Sun, Resorts

First there were jackpots, then there were progressive jackpots, now there are MegaJackpots (which happen to be progressive!). That’s right folks, there are two new MegaJackpot games available to you on several NJ online casinos.

With these games, you are feeding the jackpot along with players from other online casinos. This makes for a larger jackpot (with a minimum of $500,000). Both games are IGT creations and adaptations of two of their most popular slots (in both brick-and-mortar casinos and online).

The first is MegaJackpots Cleopatra, with its hieroglyphs, scarabs and All-Seeing Eye. The Scatter symbol, represented by a Sphinx, will trigger the Free Spins bonus round. You’ll be awarded 15 free games, with the possibility of retriggering up to 180 games in total. Even better, your wins during this round are tripled, making for some good payouts.

Also available is MegaJackpots Siberian Storm, where you’ll find the same symbols (jeweled daggers, statues, multiple tigers) and similar base payouts. This game utilizes the MultiwayExtra Bonus, meaning that wins are paid out from the typical left to right as well as right to left. The Tiger’s Eye symbol is your Scatter, but you must find 5 on consecutive reels to head to the bonus game, where you’ll receive a minimum of 8 free spins (and up to 96). It is possible to retrigger and add free spins, up to a total of 240.

The progressive MegaJackpot requires 5 MegaJackpot symbols to appear – anywhere – on the reels to get the big bucks. You’ll also be handsomely rewarded for 4 Mega Jackpot symbols (100x your bet).

There are drawbacks to these games and that’s the Return to Player percentage (RTP). On the original game it runs about 95%, pretty average for a slot. (Most games today range from 94% – 96%.) But the RTP on these MegaJackot versions is about 89% until the jackpot gets very high. The higher the jackpot, the higher the percentage. When it taps in at about $1 million, the RTP increases to about 93%, making it a better bet to play. Either way, you will have fun on these time-honored slots.

Himalayas: Roof of the WorldSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM
Witchcraft AcademySlotsBorgata, Caesars, Golden Nugget, playMGM

It’s the mystical that reigns this week at NJ online casinos. Two new slots made their debut, one which is set amongst the highest mountains of the Himalayas and the other that seeks to replicate the magic of Harry Potter and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Himalayas: Roof of the World is a new Barcrest slot with 5 reels and 100 paylines that focuses on the remote mountains that hold a special place in the hearts and minds of climbers and mystics alike. This game features a Snow Slide Bonus, Free Spins Bonus round, and a Big Bet feature. You’ll find that the Big Bet feature increases your chance of triggering the Free Spins bonus round with only 2 symbols and offers potentially more ways to win with increased in your stake. Cost of the Big Bet feature is $20, $30 or $50. The bigger the bet, the more benefits you receive, like low paying symbols being removed from the reels and additional Wilds showing up.

The second new game, Witchcraft Academy, is NetEnt’s take on the popular J.K. Rowling series. The game takes place within a witchcraft academy where magic, charms and secrets abound. Here two students—Efora and Earthan—lead the charge into the library to unearth the big mystery from the ancient scrolls and books.

There is an Elements Bonus where you will choose one of the two main characters to cast an Element Shot at one of the columns. If you hit an Armour Guard, it will explode and hit all adjacent symbols, unlocking any Scatter symbols. If you can hit 3 or more of the Scatter symbols, you will activate the Free Spins feature. During thee Free spins feature, if you get 2 or more Bonus Scatter symbols, you will earn additional fee spins (from 5 to 20, depending on the number of Bonus symbols). So get your wand ready!

Lost RelicsSlotsGolden Nugget
Money RainSlotsGolden Nugget, Borgata, playMGM

The sleeping giants have awoken! Finally, a few new slot titles to play on NJ online casinos. After a very slow two weeks, several sites have added some exciting games, both of which offer multiple unique features and lots of fun.

First up is Lost Relics, a NetEnt game available on three NJ sites. This 5×5 reel set slot allows bets as low as 20 cents and has a return to player percentage (RTP) of 96.3%. With an archaeology theme, you’ll journey into the past to search for treasure a la Indiana Jones. Wins are based on Cluster Pays rather than traditional paylines with 6 or more constituting a win. During regular play there are also three random features that can occur during a win: Coin Win, Extra Wild and Extra Scatter. You can get up to 5 instances of these random features.

You won’t find a Wild symbol here, but the Scatter does occur and three or more anywhere on the reels will activate 10 Free Spins. During this bonus play, a chest will occupy a number of spaces behind your symbols. Winning clusters reveal what is behind each symbol and remains visible through the duration of Free Spins. Each subsequent spin reveals more spaces. One you have found the complete chest you will be rewarded with Extra Free Spins, Sticky Wild or a Coin Win. Then the spaces are reset and a new chest is hidden at random. A fun take on a treasure hunt!

Money Rain is the second new offering, and while it has the standard 5 reels, there are 25,000 ways to win! There are 8 symbols represented by currency, ranging from $1 to $500, as well as a Free Spins symbol and a dollar sign. Get a minimum of 4 matching symbols, anywhere on the reels, for a win. Another way to win is for a dollar sign to show up. During regular play, this will be green. It will awaken the Money Reel to the right of the reels. The Money Reel will spin and land on a symbol. All dollar signs are replaced with this currency to help you make a match. (During Free Spins play, this dollar sign is blue.)

Speaking of Free Spins, get three or more symbols to play this bonus round. You can actually get as many as 6 symbols, which will award 50 free spins. The other unique bonus feature here is the Good, Better, Best feature. During regular play, you can change your bet amount by selecting this feature. It will increase the number of free spins that may be triggered during Free Spin play. Good = 4 more spins, Better = 6 more spins and Best = 8 more spins. Each level will cost you – of course.

Dragon's Law Twin Fever SlotsCaesars

This week, Caesars NJ online casino adds some heat to their lineup with Dragon’s Law Twin Spin, a Konami creation that builds on the popularity of the original brick-and-mortar slot Dragon’s Law.

You’ll find this game loaded with good fortune, from the symbols—lucky pig, Chinese coins—to the Dragon’s Law bonus feature. There are the typical Wilds (represented by the Star symbol) and a Yin/Yang Scatter symbol, as well as a Free Spins Bonus Game.

The key to big wins will be the Dragon’s Law feature, which is randomly triggered. When unleashed, one or both of the dragons will come down onto the reels, snaking around and turning multiple symbols into Wilds. This can occur during your Free Spins bonus as well, and they tend to be more active during that round.

Fantastic FireworksSlotsGolden Nugget
Wild-O-TronSlotsBorgata, playMGM

Ready to have some fun this weekend? There are two new games at NJ online casinos for you to test out, one with a fireworks theme and another that’s a futuristic robot slot. Let’s take a look…

Fantastic Fireworks, an IGT creation, extends the 4th of July holiday with a fireworks-themed slot full of unusual features. You’ll find Floating Reels—a variation of Cascading Reels, wins that include chains that intersect and create special bonus fireworks, and a Rocket Meter. That Rocket Meter gets filled in two different ways during regular play and can lead to either a Free Spins Bonus—which can be retriggered—or the Cannon Bonus. This fun and entertaining game has lots of bells and whistles and the opportunity to win often.

Also on tap is Wild-O-Tron 3000, where robots make up the bulk of the symbols. There are Stacked Symbols and a Wild, but no Scatter or Free Spins Bonus Round. What it does have is a Wild-O-Tron feature that can transform and or all of the robots into Wild symbols, which can really impact the cash value of winning paylines.

Queen of the CastleSlotsMohegan Sun, Resorts

There’s a new NextGen game in town, and it is packed with special features! The Queen of the Castle, now available at two NJ online casinos, may be a bit cartoon-like, but there are multiple Wilds, Mystery Chests, Locked Reels, a Nudge feature, and Free Spins Bonus Game. All these worthwhile features help to make up for the fact that there are more symbols than on any other game I have ever seen.

Symbols include bag of gold, throne, banner, 4 jewels, Jack-Ace, Bonus, and oddly enough a dog. Oh, and the Red and Purple Mystery Chests. That’s a lot of symbols, so it’s good that there is an unusual 3-4-4-4-3 reel format and 576 ways this game pays.

The Locked Reel feature is randomly triggered at the end of a spin, causing vines to wrap around the center three reels. Those reels then lock together and spin, showing the same symbols in adjacent positions. The Nudge feature comes into play with the Red and Purple Mystery Chests, which can help you achieve multiple 5 of a kind paylines. But best of all is the Free Spins bonus round. Three Scatter symbols will trigger this game, during which every Bonus symbol is replaced by a crown on the center 3 reels. Every crown that occurs is counted on the Tower. Each time you fill the Tower you are awarded a prize, which includes the expansion of the center reels and extra free games. This exponentially increases your paylines. Should you make it all the way to Level 4, you will be playing with 3,087 ways to win!

The Angel's TouchSlotsGolden Nugget, playMGM
Wild-O-Tron 3000SlotsBorgata, playMGM

You’ll get a bit of heavenly help from one of the new slots appearing on NJ online casinos this week, while a second new slot takes a more sci-fi approach with robots providing you with a leg up. Let’s take a look…

The Angel’s Touch, from NYX Gaming Group, features a WWII pin-up style angel that serves as your Scatter symbol. You’ll also find a harp, trumpet and bell, along with the 9-Ace and a pair of angel’s wings that act as a Wild. Three or more of your curvaceous angels will trigger the Angel’s Touch Bonus. During this bonus round you start with 8 clouds and will continue to collect symbols until you reveal 2 devils, which moves you on to the actual free spins. If a cloud revealed a symbol, it will act as a Wild. If you chose both symbols, that means you get 2 Wilds, plus the original angel’s wing Wild, making for the possibility of triple Wilds on a spin. Also of note is the Ante Bet, where you can double your chances of a bonus by paying a little extra.

Also on tap is Wild-O-Tron 3000 from NetEnt. This slot has a futuristic look to it, with robots making up the bulk of the symbols. There’s also a ball-shaped robot which serves a Wild. Symbols can appear stacked, taking up whole reels, making for some good wins. Also making for some great wins is the Wild-O-Tron feature, which can be triggered at the start of any reel spin. When in play, the Wild-O-Tron feature can transform any or all of the robots into Wild symbols. Needless to say, this can really impact the cash value of winning paylines.

Reel StealSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM, SugarHouse
Riverboat QueenSlotsBetfair, Caesars, Golden Nugget, SugarHouse

“R” is the letter of the day when it comes to new slots at NJ online casinos. We’ve found two new games for you to play during your 4th of July festivities. Let’s see what they are…

First up is Reel Steal, currently available at 4 online casinos. This mob-themed slot looks like it’s right out of the 1970s, including cars, outfits, and the music. Symbols include items that you would associate with cops and robbers: bag of cash, safe full of gold, gun/passport, camera/film, suitcase with a diamond. There are also several characters, both cops and bad guys. The Wild is represented by a 1970s yellow Dodge Charger and all wins the wild are paid at 5x. Scatter is a bundle of dynamite. Three or more trigger Free Spins, from 15 to 25, depending on how many symbols you get. Each Scatter that lands during Free spins earns one extra spin, which can really rack up the $$$$.

Our second new slot is Riverboat Queen, a progressive slot also available at 4 casinos. This one takes you back to the days of gambling riverboats that trolled the Mississippi. Symbols include the riverboat, the sexy female cardshark, poker chips, dice, glass of whisky, and spades, diamonds, hearts and clubs. There is no Wild symbol, nor is there a typical Scatter. This does make it a bit more difficult to get a standard win – with so many symbols, only 3 reels and no Wilds. But there is a Bonus symbol, 3 of which can trigger the Wheel Bonus, with prizes ranging from 200 coins to free spins. This slot also has a Progressive Jackpot. While you have to have max bet to get that, any combination of 4 or more Riverboat Queen symbols will get you a hefty prize (from 120 to 20,000 credits).

Chili Chili FireSlotsGolden Nugget
The Monkey PrinceSlotsBorgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM

Are you ready for the weekend? If you can’t make it to Atlantic City for the opening of Hard Rock AC and Ocean Resort Casino—and all their attendant festivities—there are two new slots for you to enjoy at NJ online casinos.

Chili Chili Fire, from gamemaker Konami, takes you south of the border for some reel fun. There are four colorful symbols, along with 9-Ace, Wild and the Scatter. This slot has a unique Fadeaway feature that is randomly triggered after a reel spin. When it appears it will fade away all 9-Ace symbols and replace them with new symbols—the four colorful symbols, along with Wild and Scatter. This allows for a potential win, not to mention a second chance at getting 3 or more Scatter symbols. There is also the typical Free Spins bonus game, achieved by landing 3 or more Scatter symbols. The Fadeaway feature is active during free spins, and can frequently occur. The Free Spins can be retriggered as well.

Also on tap is The Monkey Prince, an Asian-inspired game with paying symbols that include the Wild, Scatter, dragon, lion, sapphire ring, gold ring, gold and ruby earrings, gold and jade necklace, and Jack-Ace. There are also 3 Monkey Prince Masks that do not pay, but are added to a running total in the upper left corner. Amass these to access 3 special features. Collect 5 blue masks and the game will randomly turn 3-4 symbols to Wild on your current spin. Collect 5 red masks and it will place Stacked Wilds on 1 to 5 of the reels for your current spin. Or, collect 5 gold masks and the game will turn 1 symbol into a Surrounding Wild, which can award up to 9 Wilds. With this slot, the Free Spins bonus game allows you to choose your Wild feature. You can choose a determinate amount of spins with one of the following: 1 random Surrounding Wild, 2 Random Wild Reels, or 4 Random Wild symbols. Spins range from 5 to 50, depending on the number of Scatters you receive and the Wild feature you choose.

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.

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 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!

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.

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.

There is also a Wild and Scatter symbol.

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.

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:

Fruit SpinsSlotsBetfair, Borgata, Golden Nugget, Tropicana, Virgin, SugarHouse
Tetris Super JackpotsSlotsBetfair, Borgata

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!

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.

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, 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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Lock It Link Night LifeSlotsBetfair, Borgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM, Sugarhouse
The Wild LifeSlotsBetfair, Borgata, Golden Nugget, playMGM

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.

Guardians of Fire & IceSlotsTropicana, Virgin

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%.

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.

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!

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.

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!

December 14, 2017

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, 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 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.

With the colder weather upon us and more time indoors, it’s time to check out some new slots available from your favorite NJ online casinos.

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.

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.

At closer look, you’ll find that in the bonus round, you can take a fraction of the available jackpots if you’re not confident of winning the whole pot. Balloonies Farm, which debuted two weeks ago at many other NJ online casinos, is the final addition to Betfair’s lineup. Meanwhile Golden, based on barnyard animals, is now available for play at Golden Nugget, Mohegan, and Resorts.

What’s old is new again! Golden Nugget has just added Wild Play Super Bet to its lineup. This NextGen game goes retro with fruit, bells, and 7s but amps it up with some 3D graphics and music that makes you want to wiggle in your seat. With 5 reels and 40 paylines, you’ll find the base game pays poorly, but you can opt for the Super Bet Bonus for an additional bet. This, combined with stacked Wilds, can yield big paydays. (And the Super Bet doubles in the Bonus round!)

This week brought one new slot to five NJ online casinos. Titled Spartacus Call to Arms, the game was developed by SG Interactive. 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.
