Christmas with Spin Palace

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way, oh what fun it is to play with Spin Palace all the way – hey! Alright, not my best work, but writing jingles is not my bag, baby. Another year has come and gone and if you’re getting on just a bit, then I’m sure that you’re under the collective impression that 2018 has been the fastest year to date. How fast has this one gone by? No, really, how fast? We had another Wimbledon, that’s always fun. Russia hosted the FIFA World Cup, Prince Harry got married to Meghan Markle (eyes rolling), while the Castro era came to end when Raul Castro stepped aside and allowed Miguel Diaz-Canel to ascend.  Out in Colorado, a man survived both a shark and a bear attack! Now if that isn’t lucky, then I don’t know what is! We can’t speak about luck without speaking about Spin Palace Casino, the online entertainment hub that has also seen the back of another year and now along with all of you, enters into the festive season. With Christmas just around the corner, we thought it is best to get the holiday cheer started by letting you know about their fantastic range of Christmas-themed online slot games.

Santa’s Wild Ride

Santa's wild rideLet’s step back to 2010, the year in which this online video slot game was released. The name does say it all as Microgaming gives players a really delectable taste of the holiday season with old St Nick upping the ante like you won’t believe it!  Santa rocks what looks to be a Harley while the rest of the reels are adorned in treats, not necessarily ones affiliated with Christmas itself, but certainly with this time of the year. Across 5 reels you’ll see lusty pints of lager, mince pies, full-house sandwiches, cookies, dessert, elves – you name it. Santa meets fun and winning possibilities in a slots game that offers 243 ways to win, up to 25 free spins coupled with a choice of three wild features and a free gift bonus meant only for reels 2 and 4. All in all this slots game can rain down a maximum total of 190 000 coins.

Deck the Halls

Deck the Halls slotWith this video slot game, Microgaming decided to go more traditional and in the same breath, more old school too. Santa’s at it in this one, but the theme is a lot more warm and homely, and the maximum take-home if you should ever be so lucky is 2 400 000 coins! Expect to see warm fire places, baubles, gifts under a tree, and Santa responding to request letters. Things are kept straightforward but exciting through free spins with multiplied outcomes, wild symbols and stacked symbols in the form of Santa himself.

Jingle Bells

Jingle Bells slotIf you’re really looking for sheer simplicity with high value potential returns, then look no further than this one. Released way back in 2006, Jingle Bells is proper old school gaming and this is because it is a full-on three reel slot machine. Put another way, it’s a classic slot machine. Three reels and five paylines is all you’ve got at your disposal, yet the possible remuneration is quite something. Classic slot machine symbols adorn the reels so expect to see your typical BAR’s, 7s and cherries. The Christmas theme is made clear by way of the jingle bells symbol, which depending on the paylines they fulfil, can deliver big payouts going from 1 000 coins all the way to 6 000 coins. Now imagine you’re betting max at $5…

Santa Paws

Santa Paws slotThe North Pole comes into full swing in Santa Paws, a playful slot machine with a pleasant theme and some fantastic Microgaming staples. This one is for those video slot purists and the game itself, while quite old, is the equivalent of a fine wine.  A polar bear, a penguin, a seal, a rabbit, a killer whale and an owl all account for the cute characters you’ll find on this game’s 5 reels and 20 paylines.  From a feature perspective, wins are begotten through wilds, scatters, free spins and a gamble feature. Up to 12 free spins with a 7x multiplier could lead you to prosperity and thanks to two unique wilds, the possibility for even more.  I’m a big fan of the gamble feature, a gaming attribute seen less these days and thus requiring that you play older games to utilise it. The good news is that Santa Paws has it all!

Secret Santa

Sectret Santa slotThis one carries some seriously big potential in the form of hidden talent. From the outside, Secret Santa looks like yet another slots game paying homage to the season to be jolly, but don’t be fooled would-be players, chip away at this one and you could find yourself with a smile wide enough to crack a mirror.  Firstly, this online slot machine offers 1024 possible combinations, a massive scale-up of Microgaming’s original 243 ways concept. What I really like about this game is the way its bonus features work; there’s no aligning or collecting of certain symbols or anything along those lines – see what I did there? Your ability to capitalise on the bonus is completely and utterly random and this is because it can occur at any point. Once you’re through though, you’ve got 7 mystery features to benefit from, and this is where the game really showcase its inventive qualities. Dashing Wilds, Scatter Sprees, Rolling Reels and other enticing names will pop up, each one geared towards hopefully giving you a better payday.

And there you have it boys and girls, the Spin Palace Online Casino list of Christmas-themed online video slot games, ready to add more cheer to your year!

Microgaming and Foxium Presents: Astro Legends

Astro LegendsI tell you, one of the best things about this business is the innovative forces behind the games that get unveiled. Technology’s constant evolvement means that the games that get released evolve too and this is good news for all involved. The end of the month at Spin Palace is always a good thing because the end of the month means the unveiling of a brand new online video slot game. This time round the game is called Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion, and it’s the combined forces of Microgaming and Foxium. Foxium is its own entity, but it’s with tutelage from Microgaming that it has created its latest gaming extravaganza. However, while Microgaming provides the platform, Foxium provides the game, and it shows.

An Epic Tale Awaits

Of the many cool attributes that comes with this game, the first thing that will strike your attention is its story, and let me tell you, this one’s been given quite the tale. Set in a galaxy far…oh never mind, it’s somewhere in a galaxy and it centres around two space-age megastars.  You’ve got Lyra, from the planet Oratorio and the frontwoman for an intergalactic band. But this alien beauty is more than just a singer whose impressive ‘keytar’ solos wow the crowd,  she’s also a peacekeeper who collects stardust from crystals and gems in order for her to shape-shift.  When she shape-shifts, it’s into a spirit form of a wolf who in turn can run at incredible speeds. Lyra is lured to the planet Libretto by the other half of this game, Erion, an alien artificial being, and it is here where all the action will take place.

Why Play Games by Foxium?

Foxium has not been around for too long, but any casino gaming company that has the backing of Microgaming is one not to be sniffed at, and the quality of the games are impressive. There’s a fine line between quality and quantity, and I would guess that any successful business endeavour would want to be possess both those attributes. Microgaming is one of those companies that has both and I suspect it sees incredible potential in Foxium, which is why it’s allowed this company to use its Quickfire software to publish its content. Foxium’s collection of really cool themes are not just inventive, they also show a company with its finger on the pulse of what excites players. In addition to creating online and mobile slot games that look fantastic, Foxium has also instilled its games with exciting and alternative takes on long-held traditions, and it’s something you’ll see for yourself when you play Astro Legends.

Playing Astro Legends

Astro Legends doesn’t play like your conventional online video slots game, or any slots game for that matter. Gone is the traditional reel structure of 5 columns and anything between 9 and 25 paylines. Instead what you’re faced with is diamond-shaped board with 22 independent reels, or more accurately, 22 positions.

Wins are achieved by getting clusters of like-symbols to appear, and you’ll need at least 5 symbols in a cluster adjacent in order to be successful.  Only six symbols populate this board and while this might seem whimsical, there’s more going on than initially meets the eye. You’ve got geometric wild symbols which are accompanied by a random multiplier of between 2x and 5x and in addition to this, a high-stakes respins round also. This respin attribute can bring about an astronomical win of 15 000 times your bet, should you beat the odds.  Finally there’s a very exciting pick-me adventure bonus game that’s engrossing on the eye and if luck’s on your side, sweet on the wallet.

In this bonus game, Lyra will transform into her wolf spirit animal and start sprinting on the screen to collect and gather gems. Erion will try and curb her progress by raising crystal barriers in her way. Luckily you’re there and the onus is on you to guide her path so as to avoid Erion’s attempts to stop her. Get her through all six stages and you’ll come out tops with 20x your bet!

Astro Legends: Lyra and Erion, an intergalactic, psychedelic, synthwave-infused casino game with great winning possibilities is available to play at Spin Palace Online Casino. Are you ready to embark on this adventure?

The Most Anticipated Slots Games of 2018

The world’s leading online casino software developers never rest. Their teams are always hard at work to bring their players the latest and greatest slots games in gaming entertainment – and this year is set to be the best one yet for giants like Microgaming and NetEnt!

There are a slew of exciting new slots scheduled for release throughout this year, many of which were officially announced late in 2017 to build even more anticipation before their launch. Branded titles certainly seem to be popular, and judging by top developers’ Q1 releases, players will have plenty of exclusive content to sink their teeth into in the coming months.

Jazz It Up With Microgaming’s Playboy Gold

One of the upcoming slot releases that have graced countless news headlines is Microgaming’s latest creation. Building on its partnership with the glamorous Playboy brand, the British developer is now almost ready to release its Playboy Gold online slot into the world.

Playboy Gold has in fact been developed by Triple Edge Studios, one of Microgaming’s exclusive content development partners. It will officially make its debut at ICE Totally Gaming on February 6-8, following in the footsteps of the original Playboy slot by Microgaming, boasting superior graphics, more bonus features, and plenty of steamy action hosted by playmates Audrey and Raquel.

With an innovative new 6 reel format, free spins, and several additional bonuses, the new game is set to thrill when it lands at Microgaming online casinos on March 7, 2018.

Conquer The Jungle In NetEnt’s Jumanji

Next up on the 2018 slots games schedule is another exclusively branded classic – this time hailing from Swedish gaming giant NetEnt. Many will remember Jumanji, the family adventure blockbuster starring Robin Williams that thrilled viewers with its unique take on an enchanted board game. The classic film recently spawned a sequel, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, and it is on this new film that NetEnt has based its exciting new slot that is set to land in just a few short weeks.

According to NetEnt, the Sony Pictures-branded game will boast its newest innovative feature – dual reels – along with content from the film that hit cinemas late last year. Apparently, the new Jumanji slot even had collaboration from the film’s main stars, Jack Black, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Kevin Hart, to make every detail as authentic as possible.

While little is known about the upcoming new slot for now, NetEnt has indeed confirmed that it will boast a fun Jumanji free spins bonus game; and, knowing the developer, there will be plenty more unique features in store as well!

Expect Plenty Of NetEnt Slots Games

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle isn’t the only tantalising new game that players can expect from NetEnt in Q1, however. The mightily majestic Asgardian Stones online slot is landing on February 22, and will see players’ favourite Norse gods among the realms of Valhalla as they battle it out for immense riches.

So far, all that is known about Asgardian Stones is that Loki, Thor, Odin and Freya will all grace its reels, and that at least two thunderous bonus features will be on offer when the new game hits casinos across the globe.

NetEnt’s last slots games release scheduled for Q1 has already gotten players talking too. Taking inspiration from the likes of Grand Theft Auto and Miami Drive, the developer has hinted that its upcoming Miami Pursuit online slot will be packed with big bonuses and images of the iconic seaside city.

Miami Pursuit is scheduled to appear at NetEnt casinos on March 22, 2018, and while not much is known about the mysterious new game, experts predict that it may involve high-speed car chases and rich red sunsets akin to the classic action of GTA: Vice City.
