Egyptian and Roman Slots Win Big At Rushmore Casino

Fri, 14 Sep 2012 20:31:11 +0100

2012-09-14

In an ironic twist, Rushmore online casino has been hit on slot games that carry the themes of Caesar and Cleopatra. And they\'re loving it! A woman identified as \"Susan G.\" made off with a $14,643 jackpot while playing Caesar\'s Empire, which was not long after \"Lucille B.\" hit for $6,626 on the machine. And on the Cleopatra\'s Gold game, which is extremely popular, \"Kathryn S.\" won the biggest prize of all, scoring a $23,205 payout. Unquestionably there are a lot of happy slot players at Rushmore Casino this month, and it isn\'t even halfway over!

Both slots are designed by Realtime Gaming casino software, which powers Rushmore Casino, and they are both nicely detailed in accordance with their respective themes. Caesar\'s Empire contains images that evoke the pageantry of ancient Rome, and this includes the background, which is that of the Colosseum, a building that still stands. And if you bring up any of these \"memories\" in the game, it\'s quite possible you\'ll be paid handsomely. For example, if you are able to pull up the Ceasar symbol, which is the wild, not only does it contribute to complete winning combinations, it also triples the payout that results. When the Caesar and Colosseum symbols both appear on the screen (the Colosseum symbol is a \"scatter\"), that brings you to the free spins round, where payouts are doubled on winners. additional spins can be triggered as well when the Caesar symbol reappears.

In Cleopatra\'s Gold, Cleopatra herself is the wild symbol, with the Pyramid fulfilling the role of the scatter, which can facilitate entry into the free spins round, which, like Caesar\'s Empire, can find additional free spins triggered. The jackpot is in excess of 10,000 coins. Both Cleopatra\'s Gold and Caesar\'s Empire are part of the \"Real Series\" of slots that, as a group, is a signature offering of Realtime Gaming. Two of the other slot games Rushmore Casino offers, Diamond Dozen and Roberta\'s Castle, have paid out top jackpots of $33,000 and $30,834, respectively. So a lot of people are hitting it big at Rushmore Casino, where the games go through strenuous fairness testing by the acclaimed Technical Systems Testing group.

Caesars sells 50% of its Online Casino and Poker Subsiduary

Fri, 14 Sep 2012 20:31:11 +0100

2012-09-14

Caesars Entertainment has reportedly sold 50% of its subsidiary that deals with interactive gaming (online casino and poker operations) for $60.8 million.

According to documents that have been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the buyer is Rock Gaming, which happens to be a partner in two Ohio casinos with the company, and which also has an option to purchase $19.2 million worth of interest in Caesars Interactive.

So how far reaching is Montreal-based Caesars Interactive? Well, it operates the World Series of Poker, for one thing. That is a very powerful and significant brand. There is also a working arrangement in place with 888 Holdings for equipment and software to operate the websites Caesars Interactive is involved with.

That actually turned out to be something of a landmark deal, as Nevada's regulators had never before approved a deal taking place between one of its state licensees in the area of land-based gaming and an online operator that was based out of the country.

Caesars and Rock Gaming are also aiming for a deal to open a casino in Baltimore that will house slot machine games.

Significantly, Rock Gaming is owned by Dan Gilbert, who is not only the founder of Quicken Loans, but also the current owner of the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers. Gilbert gained infamy when he went public with his disdain for the loss of basketball superstar LeBron James to Miami, prompting much criticism. His involvement with Rock Gaming, along with other NBA owners like the Maloof family (Sacramento Kings), marks a more lenient attitude on the part of professional sports leagues toward owners who are also gaming operators.

Caesars is a limited partner in Gilbert's two casinos in Ohio, assuming the management role at Horseshoe casinos in both Cleveland and Cincinnati. The Cleveland facility is expected to open next month.

Easter Promotions at Roxy Palace Casino

Fri, 14 Sep 2012 20:31:11 +0100

2012-09-14

Easter is coming, and not only is Roxy Palace Casino celebrating with you, they're making it worth your while.

Worth millions, in fact.

The Easter Millions giveaway promotion extends well beyond Easter, in fact, making it an extra-special celebration. It goes from April 4 till May 8, and there are going to be five million loyalty points up for grabs. Loyalty points, in case you're not aware, are awarded for frequent play in the casino, so the operators are stressing that the time to join is now so that you can make the most of the program, which converts those points into credits in a real money account.

Space is somewhat limited, as Roxy Palace is expecting a lot of participants. It goes like this: the top 125 players with the most loyalty points during the period the promotion lasts are going to share in the prize pool. And the player who is #1 in terms of accumulating points during Easter Millions will earn a million more loyalty points.

That doesn't mean you're going to get cut out of the loop if you come up short; the Roxy Palace online casino will award half a million loyalty points to the second-place finisher, with 300,000 going to third place and 200,000 going to the customer in fourth position.

But is certainly doesn't stop there; Customers from fifth to tenth place get 100,000 points, and through 40th place there are 30,000 points available. The casino will give loyalty points all the way down to 125th place, which picks up 8000 points.

Roxy Palace Casino is one of the top online gaming destinations in the world. The site uses Microgaming software, and thus makes over 300 casino games available to its customers. The Roxy Palace Casino bonus is one of the most competitive in the industry, rewarding new players on the first six deposits, including one round where they offer 120 free spins on one of their slot games.

Then there is the Roxy Palace Player's Club, where players literally can get paid to play. The more they participate in the outstanding offerings from Microgaming, the more points they will gather. As mentioned, those points can be converted to real cash, by way of credits in a casino account.

The Easter Millions promotions simply accelerates that process, in a very big way

If you want to get in on Easter Millions, you have to make a deposit at Roxy Palace online casino and start playing at some point during the promotion period. If you're a new player, you'll get a big welcome with the Roxy Palace casino bonus on top of everything else. To add to the excitement, there's a leader board, where you'll be able to keep track of your progress against the other players. If you are in the top 200, you'll be able to see your name. If you get into the top 125 and thus qualify for Easter Millions bonus points, they will be added into your account two days after the end of the promotion.

Roxy Palace Casino has been servicing loyal players for over a decade. It is licensed and regulated by the Lotteries and Gaming Commission of Malta.

Canadian Province Chooses OpenBet Casino Software

Mon, 13 Aug 2012 11:43:18 +0100

2012-08-13

OpenBet, the well-known sportsbook and online casino software developer, has reached an agreement with the Province of Manitoba to cooperate in launching online gaming. The target date for these services to be implemented is 2013. 

This partnership will give the Province of Manitoba, in association with BCLC, the capability and flexibility of offering not only sports gaming and retail lottery ticket sales, but online casino games, poker and bingo. It is a very significant deal. 

According to the CEO of OpenBet, David Loveday, says that "we are confident that OpenBet has the expertise and experience to deliver the underlying technical infrastructure and support for gaming operators in new jurisdictions as they open." 

OpenBet is no stranger to doing business in Canada. In fact, the company is well-established as a leader, providing software for such notable entities as Loto Quebec, Atlantic Lottery Corporation and BCLC. They've met all standards for safety and security, and so there are no worries in that area. 

What is significant about OpenBet's software from the standpoint of user-friendliness is that not only can it accommodate many languages, it also allows for customers to participate in all the "products" being offered with one account and one log-in. They can also play via their mobile device. This "one-wallet" solution offers convenience not only for the player, but for the operator as well, as it offers a single view of player activity. 

Michael Graydon, CEO of BCLC, had high praise for OpenBet's capabilities. "Their strong track record in Canada and reputation for delivering makes them the ideal partner," he said.

New Ice Hockey Slots Game At Playtech Casinos Online

Fri, 03 Aug 2012 03:12:12 +0100

2012-08-02

It is nothing unusual to see online slots associated with some kind of sport. But there haven\'t been many that are as clever as Playtech\'s Ice Hockey slot machine. It contains five reels and fifteen paylines that can be enabled, giving you a lot of chances to win.

You, as the player, are an important part of the action on the screen. There is an element of interactivity to begin with, as you make the choice of a team and see that team\'s flag planted on the players as they compete with another team you designated across the reels.

The wild symbol in this game is the goal; it can complete any and all winning combinations. And it can trigger the highest fixed jackpot in this game, a whopping 10,000 coins.

There is also an Ice Hockey symbol, which functions as the scatter. Whereas many of the slot games you\'ll see require three scatters to appear on the reels to take you to a bonus game, in this new Playtech casino game it will only take two, although they have to be on enabled paylines to do so.

Here\'s another special component of the Ice Hockey slot machine: when the \"flag\" of the same team appears on the first and fifth reels simultaneously, then you are taken right to a free spins game (the free spins cannot be re-triggered, however).

There is also a bonus symbol in the new Playtech slots game. It is the symbol of the hockey puck, and it will take to the bonus game if it is found on reel #2 and a player is to its immediate left, or reel #4, with a player to its immediate right. Yes, it sounds complicated, but you\'ll know when you get to the bonus, where you ant as many players to touch the puck as possible (with triple payout on the bet).

The artwork here has a nice touch to it, as the \"card\" symbols (9, 10, J, Q, K) have a little hockey-related accessory attached to them. It\'s colorful and brings a new dimension to the game. Canadian players will no doubt have fun with the Ice Hockey slot machine, as this is faithful to the game that is so popular with them.
