Wild Games (Playtech)

olympics slots wild games playtechI love this one! Playtech launched Wild Games in 2012 just in time of London Olympics. This beautifully animated online slot features three cute animals taking part in the Olympics: a bulldog as a swimmer, a cheetah as a sprinter and a hippopotamus as a gymnast. Apart from amazing visual presentation, Wild Games slot offers Wilds, Free Spins and a variety of amazing Bonus rounds: Win a Medal Bonus, Freestyle Swim Bonus, 100m Dash Bonus and Balance Beam Bonus, each featuring marvelous animations. This game is definitely the best Olympics themed slot I’ve ever player and deserves the gold medal in this competition! And remember: “This year only the toughest, wildest and fittest will gather to compete and win it all.”

2016 Gladiators (Endorphina)

olympics slots 2016 gladiators endorphinaThe silver medal goes to Endorphina’s brand new 2016 Gladiators slot. 2016 Gladiators is a 5-reel, 21-payline slot inspired by the Olympic Games and it‘s not a coincidence that the release date matches the opening day of the Olympic Games. This game is Endorphina´s tribute to this major sporting event, featuring some of the most prominent Olympic disciplines in the symbols and the design of the game. The game features a few nice special features, including Wilds, Scatters and ands exciting Free Spins feature with a x2 multiplier. Prepare your trainers and break your personal big win record with 2016 Gladiators slot!

Golden  Games (Playtech)

olympics slots golden games playtechAnother Playtech slot based on summer Olympic games theme, Golden Games, was released a year after the 2008 Beijing Olympics. It’s not as good as Wild Games, but it is still very entertaining and I decided to award it with the bronze medal. This 5-reel, 25-payline slot  features symbols representing a sample of the myriad sports and symbols that are common to the Olympics, but unfortunately the graphics are rather poor. However, Golden Games  offers a number of nice special features, such as Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins with a x2 multiplier and a Gamble game. Don’t judge a book by its cover and give this game a go, asit can bring you nice prizes!

Other Olympics themed slots worth playing include:

  • The Olympic Slots (iSoftBet)
  • Go for Gold (Ash Gaming)
  • Olympic Slots (GamesOS)
  • Olympic Winners (SkillOnNet)
  • Sports Fever (Playtica)
  • Sports Bet (BetConstruct)

I hope you will enjoy playing these slots as much as you enjoy watching Rio 2016! Have fun, win big and let the games begin!

Let’s drink tequila and go to Mexico with a brand new slot from Play’n GO!

grim muerto slot play'n go

I love everything that is connected with Mexico: Mexican food, Mariachi music and of course tequila! My biggest dream is to visit Mexico one day just in time for their Dia de los Muertos holiday. However, I need more cash to make this dream come true, so today I’ll play Grim Muerto slot from Play’n GO instead!

Grim Muerto is one of the best slots I’ve ever played. I love its theme inspired by Mexican Day of the Dead, its colourful graphics and animations, amazing sounds and generous special features. In Grim Muerto slot you will find everything you would expect to see in a game inspired by Dia de los Muertos. There are lots of red roses, candles, sugar skulls and of course a group of skeletons celebrating the holiday with faces painted as sugar skulls, wearing colourful sombreros and playing typical Mexican instruments: trumpets, guitars, violins and accordions. This slot really looks good!

But the best thing about this slot is the number of amazing special features it offers! There are Wilds, Expanding Wilds, Extra Wilds, Scatters, Free Spins and a few innovative features that will help you win huge prizes. First, the Marco Sinistro feature will randomly select one reel (or up to five reels in Free Spins) for each spin and expand the Wild guitar symbol every time it lands on that reel. Free Spins are triggered by three book symbols and can be retriggered by candle symbols. If you catch just two Scatters, don’t worry – you’ll get a Second Chance to trigger 10 Free Spins by picking one of Mariachi symbols. If you don’t find the third Scatter you can get some cash to wipe your tears.What is more, during Free Spins, one Mariachi symbol becomes an Extra Wild and substitutes for all symbols except Scatter.

Grim Muerto slot will surely meet the needs even of the most fussy players! Well done Play’n Go! I’ll play this superb slot today, sipping tequila and listening to Mariachi music. I hope I will win nice prizes that will bring me one step closer to my dream holiday in Mexico! Wish me luck!

In search for the fabled pot of gold…

charms & clovers slot betsoft

There are so many online slots inspired by Leprechaun that I started wondering if software providers would ever get bored with this theme. Just check my post about Best Leprechaun Slots – there are dozens of slots with the Irish theme! And here comes another one… This time created by Betsoft. But wait, this one is really entertaining!

Charms & Clovers brings ancient Irish myth to life in gorgeous high definition colour! This 6-reel, 40-payline slot offers truly magnificent 3D graphics and animations. I have to admit that it’s the most beautiful Leprechaun slot I’ve ever seen. Just take a look at that funny Leprechaun standing next to the reels – don’t you think this is how all Leprechauns should look like?

 

However, this slot does not only look good. It also offers a variety of amazing special features, such as Wilds, Free Spins, Bonus games and a Double Up feature, as well as three progressive jackpots! Charms & Clovers features a special 6th Bonus reel that can give you access to four unique Bonus features: Money Wheel that can bring you huge prizes ranging from 4x your bet to the highest progressive jackpot,  Mega Symbol that introduces a giant 3×3 Leprechaun symbol for the duration of Free Spins, Golden Bonus that allows you to pick a pot of gold and win instant cash and Pots of Gold that adds Wilds to each spin during the Free Spins mode. Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Believe me or not, but after playing this slot I changed my mind about Leprechaun slots. This game is AWSOME! So if you ever feel like playing a Leprechaun-themed slot, choose Charms & Clovers from Betsoft. This amazing game will have you searching for that fabled pot of gold time and time again!

NetEnt is sending pigs to outer space!

when pigs fly online slot netent

NetEnt has just released a brand new game – When Pigs Fly! This cute game tells a story of a brave pig that becomes an astronaut and travels to outer space. when pigs fly online slot netentThe game has simple cartoon graphics and funny animations that will remind you of your favourite cartoons you used to watch as a child. Just take a look at the pig getting excited before its first space journey – so adorable!

When Pigs Fly does not look like video slots we are all used to play. It does have 5 reels, but forget about typical 3 rows. Instead you will see reels in an unusual shape: the first and fifth reel has only one row, the second and fourth reel has three rows and the middle one has 5 rows. In this shape, the game offers 45 ways to win (there are no typical paylines).

I have to admit that I have already seen such reels before, but this game is truly innovative, as with each subsequent win, the reels grow and increase your chances to catch a winning combo. After six subsequent wins you will see a 5×5 grid with massive 3125 ways to win!

 

What is more, each win triggers a Re-spin and activates the Free Spin countdown clock. Once you collect six wins in a row, you will win 8 Free Spins with 3125 ways to win! Incredible! Oh, I almost forgot about the Wild symbol that is really useful in this game, as it substitutes for all symbols and completes winning combinations.

 

I have already played this game in fun mode and at first I was a bit disappointed with the size and frequency of wins, but after a few minutes I got as excited as this little pig standing next to the reels (I’m pretty sure my face looked exactly the same) when I managed to trigger Free Spins. The Free Spins round is where your wins can get really high!

All in all, I love this game and I’ll play it in real mode this evening. Wish me luck! And remember… When pigs fly, expect huge wins and lots of fun!

New game from Thunderkick released!

zoom slot thunderkick

We had to wait for a long while for a new game from Thunderkick, but here it is! Their brand new Zoom slot is a powerful classic slot with a zooming twist. It looks simple but is really exciting and innovative.

When creating their brand new Zoom slot, Thunderkick wanted to combine the classic simplicity of a 3-reel slot with the exciting special features and multiple paylines once can find in modern slots. They managed to achieve this goal and created a slot that is simple, yet entertaining.

zoom slot thunderkick

Zoom offers classic slot symbols, like stars, sevens, bells, grapes, watermelons, lemons and cherries. There is also a Wild symbol that substitutes for other symbols and helps you create more winning combinations. The game is colourful and looks really nice.

zoom slot thunderkick

The slot has 6 reels and 64 paylines. The reason for this unusual number of reels is that the reel set is divided into 6 Zoom areas, each area covering 4 symbols. Every time a special Zoom symbol appears anywhere on the reels, it expands into a random Massive Symbol covering the Zoom area it landed on and triggers a re-spin. If the Zoom symbol is present in four Zoom areas at the same time forming a square, a super Massive Symbol will emerge, covering as many as 16 spots on the reels and bringing you HUGE prizes!

All in all, I really enjoyed playing this game, but I was a bit disappointed with the wins, as they were rather small and didn’t appear often. I guess it wasn’t my lucky day… I hope I will manage to catch this super Massive Symbol and win more cash next time!

We’ve got new European Champions!

uefa euro 2016 portugal win

What a surprise! Portugal overcame France 1-0 and won the final match of Euro 2016 becoming the new European Champions. France was expected to win this match, but instead they lost for the first time in a major tournament on home soil since 1960. This victory was Portugal’s first ever major tournament triumph and ended Portugal’s 41 year losing streak against France. Well done Portugal!

Although the match was quite boring and the teams needed extra time to score a goal, I have to admit that the result was really surprising, as Portugal did not win any of their group stage matches and barely managed to get to the finals. However, I have to admit that Eder’s 109th minute goal was beautiful and I started liking Cristiano Ronaldo who tried to continue playing despite a serious injury.

UEFA Euro 2016 was a great show! 108 goals were scored during 51 matches and we saw some really beautiful goals, like Xherdan Shaqiri’s left-footed scissor-kick in Switzerland vs Poland match. Not surprisingly, Antoine Griezmann was named Player of the Tournament and took the Golden Boot award. This young player scored 6 goals during the tournament, but he didn’t manage to win the trophy for his team.

UEFA’s 13-strong panel of technical observers selected the Team of the Tournament. According to them the Euro 2016 dream team would include Rui Patrício (Portugal), Joshua Kimmich (Germany), Jérôme Boateng (Germany), Pepe (Portugal), Raphael Guerreiro (Portugal), Toni Kroos (Germany), Joe Allen (Wales), Antoine Griezmann (France), Aaron Ramsey (Wales), Dmitri Payet (France) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal). Do you agree with their choice?

All in all, I had a great time watching UEFA Euro 2016 matches and can’t wait for 2018 FIDA World Cup in Russia!

UEFA EURO 2016 – who’s gonna be the new European champion?

uefa euro 2016 final portugal france

I bet every football fan in Europe is waiting for Sunday evening right now, as we already know who is playing in the final match of UEFA Euro 2016. I thought we would see Portugal playing against Germany, but France managed to stop the “German train” and made it to the final match. Let’s check the statistics and betting odds before we place our bets, shall we?

Both teams did really well and didn’t lose any matches. Portugal won 2 matches and drawn 4, while France won 5 matches and drawn just 1. As for goals, Portugal scored 8 and lost 5, while France scored 13 goals and lost 4. Both teams have similar ball possession percentage: 53% for Portugal and 52% for France. Looking at these statistics it seems that France has a better chance to become the new European champion.

And what about the best players in both teams? Portugal has Christiano Ronaldo, Nani and the incredible young player Renato Sanches, but French players like Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud and Dimitri Payet are equally good. Expect fierce competition between CR7 and Griezmann, as only one of them can become the Man of the Match for the third time during UEFA Euro 2016! I bet it will be a marvellous show to watch!

Are you ready to place your bets? The betting odds according to VoltCasino are as follows: France 2.01 (101/100) and Portugal 4.19 (319/100). So who are you going to bet on? I’ll bet on France, because their statistics are much better and they are playing on home soil so they will do their best to win this match!

No matter which of these two teams you support, get ready for the ultimate football show! Rememper, the final match will be played on Stade de France in Saint-Denis at 9 p.m. I can’t wait!

UEFA EURO 2016 semi-finals – who’s gonna play in the final match?

UEFA EURO 2016 semi-finals

Well, UEFA EURO 2016 quarter-finals weren’t very lucky for me – I bet on Poland, Wales, Germany and Iceland and only two of these teams got to the semi-finals. I won only €20 in total, so I hope this time I will win more cash! Would you like to know what my predictions for the semi-finals are?

UEFA EURO 2016 semi-finals

On Wednesday we will see Portugal facing Wales. Although I don’t like Christiano Ronaldo, this time I’ll bet on Portugal, because I think they will win this match. Wales has a strong team, but I don’t think they will be able to stop Portugal.

UEFA EURO 2016 semi-finals

On Thursday Germany will play against France and I’ll bet on Germany. Why? Their last match proved that they were true European champions and a really strong team. France has a rich history of success on home soil, but I’m sure the Greman team will get to the final match easily.

Summing up, I think we will see Portugal and Germany in the final match of EURO 2016. Do you agree? What are your predictions for UEFA EURO 2016 semi-finals?

Hi guys, UEFA EURO 2016 quarter-finals start today! Who are you going to bet on? I decided to try my luck at sports betting this year, so I’ll share with you my predictions for the results of EURO 2016  quarter-finals.

uefa euro 2016 quarter-finals

Today we will see Poland and Portugal trying to get to the semi-finals. I don’t like Christiano Ronaldo who always behaves like a spoiled child, so I’ll bet on Poland. I hope they will be as good as they were in their previous matches and teach Christiano a lesson!

uefa euro 2016 quarter-finals

Tomorrow Wales will face Belgium. I didn’t pay much attention to matches played by these two teams, so I don’t really know who to bet on. I’ll probably bet a small amount of money on Wales.

uefa euro 2016 quarter-finals

On Saturday Germany will probably knock out Italy. The “German train” as they call them is in my opinion a sure winner of this match, so I’ll bet on them. I hope they will not disappoint me!

Finally, on Sunday France will play against Iceland. I will bet on Iceland as I really cheer on this small country, however I don’t think they are able to win with the French team. Well, we will see.

And what are your predictions for the quarter-finals?
