NetEnt – Going for a fully immersive gaming experience

netent-immersive-gaming

As a leader within online casino game development NetEnt is constantly striving to improve and come up with new innovations that will further help make the gaming experience more enjoyable for players. Since their launch in 1996 the company has been a true pioneer in developing boundary-breaking technology for casino igaming. 20 years later and NetEnt is still going strong!

During the ICE Totally Gaming Conference this year NetEnt took the opportunity to showcase some of their gaming innovations that, in their words, will make this year “the most interesting year in online gambling history”. Most nostably, a virtual reality slot experience and immersive 3D sound technology.

Let us take a look:


Jack’s World – A Virtual Reality Slot Experience


One of NetEnt’s most popular games, Jack and the Beanstalk, has been a crowd favourite since its release back in 2012. The company is now taking the beloved slot and its concept and turning it into a virtual reality experience where players will feel like they are truly joining in on the adventure.

If you weren’t present at the ICE conference, you still have a chance to get a taste of what is to come. Check out the above video where you can explore the world by simply moving your mobile device around to scan the area. If you are on a desktop computer, you can use your “WASD keys” or mouse to do the same.

3D Immersive Sound Experience


Using leading-edge technology NetEnt invites you to a more immersive gambling experience with 3D sound. This is mainly targeted towards players on the go as the binaural experience works best with headphones or earbuds. But anyone using speakers on their desktop or mobile device will still get a richer gaming experience.

This new sound technology will in the future be implemented in some of NetEnt’s video slots giving you the opportunity to switch between normal and 3D audio. If you want to hear and feel what the 3D immersive experience sounds like, put on your headphones or buds and play the video below.


Innovative Gaming

More and more game developers are stretching the boundaries of online gambling by developing new technology that will enrichen the gaming experience. Not least during the ICE Totally Gaming conference this January did we see a lot of interesting and innovative solutions and ideas that probably will make it in to the casino world in the near future.

This is an exciting time for online gambling and we should all be psyched to see what game developers will provide us with during the coming years. Will wearables become a popular device for gambling? Will we be able to immersive ourselves with virtual reality and 3D sound? Will games offer not only the chance to see and hear but also feel? We don’t know, but what we do know is that we are looking forward to finding out!

NetEnt Rocks – First Ever Slot Tour

thetour1thetour2

During last year’s ICE Totally Gaming Conference it was announced that NetEnt would be releasing a Guns N’Roses online video slot. Crowds went wild but less so when they found out they had to wait an entire year for it. This year, during the conference, NetEnt made another huge announcement and this time fans will not have to wait as long.

Unveiled was “NetEnt Rocks – The Tour”, a three-part rock themed slot tour with the Guns N’Roses slot being the first installment. If this was planned to begin with or if it was a response to the fans excitement for the G N’R slot we do not know. All we do know is that we are as excited as ever for what is to come!


The Tour

The three chapters of this slot tour will consist of:

Guns N’Roses Slot – Release date: 21st of January, 2016

gunsnrosesheader

Released back in January this year, this well-designed video slot met all the expectations of fans and maybe even preceded them. The launch was the most successful in NetEnt history and the game has since been very well received both from critics and players.

Read about the slot here and to see a video preview click here.

Jimi Hendrix Slot – Release date: 21st of April, 2016

jimihendrixslot1

Announced and previewed during the ICE Totally Gaming Conference 2016, fans were psyched to see yet another licensed rock themed slot, especially one featuring the rock legend Jimi Hendrix. Taking on one of the biggest influences in rock music history fans cannot wait to see what NetEnt will pull out of their hat.

Read about the slot here.

Motörhead Slot – Release date: 22nd of September, 2016

motorheadheader

The third and last installment of the rock tour will be a Motörhead slot. Fans were a little shocked to see this heavy metal group finish off the tour but nonetheless excited. The release of the slot will be a fitting tribute to the late Lemmy Kilmister, the lead singer and front figure on the band, who passed away just before the end of 2015.

More info on the slot is to come.


And that is all we know about this jam-packed tour so far. One can definitely expect two great games in the near future as NetEnt never lets its fans down. Hopefully this will be the start of other licensed themed slot tours. Who knows, maybe we will see a Quentin Tarantino themed slot tour or maybe an Atari game themed slot tour? What the future will bring, we shall see. In the mean time we will be warming up with the Guns N’Roses video slot!

NetEnt is back with another slot that will rock your socks off!

The second instalment in the “NetEnt Rocks” trilogy will feature one of music history’s biggest influnces, Jimi Hendrix. This will be the runner up to the Guns N’Roses video slot released back in January this year. A hard act to follow as the launch of that slot was the most successful in NetEnt history. Will they be able to pull it off? One thing is for sure, NetEnt always delivers!

The Rock Legend will be back on the 21st of April, 2016!

jimihendrixslot6

During the ICE Totally Gaming 2016 conference held this January NetEnt not only announced that they will be releasing a Jimi Hendrix slot but also that it will be the second in a three-part rock themed slot tour. With the wait being shorter between announcement and launch this time around fans were lyrical.

Featuring some of Jimi Hendrix’s best known songs like, Purple Haze, Foxy Lady, Crosstown Traffic and Little Wing, one will be taken back to the historic music era of the 60’s. Along with rich, colourful 3D graphics and true-to-life characters NetEnt hopes to create a fully immersive video slot experience. But what will it offer? Well, let’s take a look!

Jam out to some rocking features while spinning!

jimihendrixslot2jimihendrixslot3

Let’s start with the base game features:

Purple Haze – Have the rock star himself appear to shred some of his iconic riffs. If you manage to land the Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze symbol three more Wild symbols will randomly be added to the reels.

Red Guitar Re-Spins – Land at least four of Jimi’s red guitars to activate the re-spins feature. During the re-spin, if you manage to land another Red Guitar symbol the feature will re-activate. This will occur until no new Red Guitar symbols land on the reels.

And then we have the Pick and Click Feature where one can win one out of four prizes. Just land three Jimi Hendrix Angel symbols to activate the feature.

Coin Win – Pick three coin symbols to receive a potentially hefty coin win. A random multiplier between x8 and x30 of your initial bet will give the chance to win up to £6,000.

Crosstown Traffic Free Spins – Pick three orange haze symbols to receive 6 Free Spins. During these, up to two wild reels will appear with every spin. For every spin the wild reels change position, going from right to left. Of course, this feature will be paired with Jimi Hendrix’s Crosstown Traffic playing in the background.

Purple Haze Free Spins – Pick three purple haze symbols to receive between 6 and 12 Free Spins. During each spin a Jimi Hendrix Purple Haze symbol will appear on the reels to give for some extra big wins! And with Purple Haze playing in the background one can’t go wrong.

Little Wing Free Spins – Pick three blue haze symbols to receive between 6 and 12 Free Spins. During each spin 3 to 5 overlay Wilds will appear randomly on the reels. And you guessed it, the backing track will be Little Wing.

Purple, orange and blue haze that will make you kiss the sky!

jimihendrixslot5jimihendrixslot4

That is it for features. Pair this all with the fact that NetEnt did an excellent job with the G N’R slot. Chances are they will succeed once again. So strap on your Woodstock bandana, turn that guitar upside down (unless you’re already a lefty) and get ready to rock this coming April!

Microgaming – Next-gen Gambling

In the forefront of innovation

As gambling has evolved and entered new eras of accessibility Microgaming has consistently been leading the way for next generation gambling. Back in 1994, when the internet was still in its infancy, Microgaming took a leap in innovation and developed casino games to play online. It might seem obvious today but back then the idea of playing with virtual money in a web based game was insane.

Fast forward, it is 2005 and mobile games are starting to hit the scene. Micrograming was once again quick to jump the bandwagon and released one of the first mobile video slots, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Now, with smartwatches and other similar products becoming a big thing, one can only expect the creative team at Microgaming to pioneer this new era of wearable devices.

Developing games for wearables

So at the end of 2014 some game changing news hit the board: 2014 was the year when, finally, mobile overtook desktop in the number of people playing real money games. Not only that but mobile devices generated 51% of global remote casino revenue! That was over a year ago and the numbers have just increased.

What this means is that people want their gambling to be mobile, to be available on the go – whenever, wherever. That is why, in 2015, Microgaming released the first ever casino game to be developed for a smartwatch, the very popular The Dark Knight Rises. This was a huge step for Microgaming since it was the first online casino game available for play on a smartwatch. But they did not stop there. Shortly thereafter they, in conjunction with Royal Vegas Casino, released their second smartwatch video slot, the enhanced Thunderstruck.

microgaming3

But all of that was last year. Let us focus on the now and future. During ICE Totally Gaming 2016 Microgaming demoed their award-winning Virtual Reality Roulette. Played using an Oculus Rift DK 2 Headset with Leap Motion 3D Controller one is completely immersed in the reality-altering 3D experience. The technology not only allows you to see a 3D world but also allows you to interact with it as your hands and body parts will be projected into it. Also showcased during the event was the innovative way of using augmented reality for gambling.

Future of wearable gambling

It is not only smartwatches and Oculus Rift that is in the talks of future gaming but also other wearable devices like Google Glass and Microsoft HoloLens. Will it take off in the nearby future? Well it is hard to say, like with all new things, but one thing is for sure, the development of wearable devices opens a lot of doors for gambling opportunities. The questions is, who will open them?

Top 7 RTP Slots Over 99%

The big question of online gambling: Will I win or will I lose?

header-playingonslot

How great would it be if we could answer that question every time we hit the slot machine lever? Well to be completely fair, it would take all the fun out of gambling. And it is important to remember that we gamble because it is fun and exciting, not necessarily to win. Because we all know, in the end, the casino makes more money than its players. They have to or it wouldn’t be profitable for them.

Gamble because it is fun and only hope to win while doing it!

This, very conveniently, leads us to what this post is all about, RTP or Return to Player. RTP is a measurement of how much money you earn per money spent and each slot machine has its own RTP value.

Any good online slot machine should have a RTP of at least 95%

The value is displayed in percentage and to give an example, the video slot Starburst, one of NetEnt’s most popular slots, has an RTP of 96.1%. What this essentially means it that per $100 spent the slot will in average yield $96.1 in winnings, spread out among players over time. This of course allows for some players to win big and for some to lose big, but the slot always stays true to the RTP.

Don’t only look for a high RTP in slot machines. Graphics, gameplay and features play a big role too!

Now, most of you didn’t click on this post because you wanted a crash course in what RTP is. You are hungry for video slots with high payouts, and so here you are:

The top 7 highest RTP slots, all with over 99%:


7. Tropic Reels (Playtech) – 99% RTPtropic-reels-slot

Set in a tropical, jungle-like backdrop Tropic Reels is a straight forward and simple looking slot. One exception though, the multi-spin feature which allows you to keep valuable symbols for your chance to win big!

Reels/Paylines: 3×5/5

Min/Max bet: £0.10/£500.00

Jackpot: 2,500x

Progressive: No

6. Ooh Aah Dracula (Barcrest) – 99% RTPooh-aah-dracula-slot

Okay, so this one is technically not a 99% RTP slot. It’s 96% in the base game but during the High Roller Bets the percentage rises to 99%. Apart from the High Roller feature you also have some very innovative Free Spins that, again, lets you up the stakes. It also doesn’t hurt with the nice looking ghoulish theme.

Reels/Paylines: 5×3/10

Min/Max bet: £0.10/£500.00

Jackpot: 5,000x

Progressive: No

5. Nemo’s Voyage (WMS) – 99% RTPnemos-voyage-slot

Welcome on board The Nautilus! Join Captain Nemo in this feature filled adventure where a strongly utilized theme will make you enjoy every spin. Keep an eye on the pressure and depth gauges as they will increase with every spin unlocking features and bonuses along the way. Granted the 99% RTP is only true when the depth gauge is maxed out.

Reels/Paylines: 5×4/40

Min/Max bet: £0.40/£200.00

Jackpot: 300x

Progressive: No

4. Mega Joker Jackpot (NetEnt) – 99% RTPmega-joker-slot

Looking for something a bit more old-school? Well look no further, Mega Joker Jackpot will have you feeling like you’re sitting by your traditional slot machine down by the local pub. With a look that copies a real life slot machine this progressive jackpot slot offers more than meets the eye. Choose to play in the Super-Metre Mode or in the regular mode, the latter being where you can win the often small but frequent progressive jackpot!

Reels/Paylines: 3×3/5

Min/Max bet: £0.10-£1.00

Jackpot: 2,000x

Progressive: Yes

3. Ugga Bugga (Playtech) – 99.1 RTPugga-bugga-slot

Though simple in its design, this jungle-tribe themed slot a very unique setup of reels. 10 paylines, all of which have their own spinning reel. Just like in Tropic Reels you have the opportunity to pick any number of symbols in the first payline that then will be held in all paylines for the remainder of the spin, which can make for some big wins.

Reels/Paylines: 3×10/10

Min/Max bet: £0.10/£250.00

Jackpot: 1,000x

Progressive: No

2. Ocean Princess (Playtech) – 99.1% RTPocean-princess-video-slot

Did I hear you say you want to play Tropic Reels but with an Ocean Adventureland theme? Well then, strap on your fins and dive into the ocean of this classic video slot. Featuring simple graphics this ocean themed slot offers the same multi-spin feature as Tropic Reels. A small difference, though, is the 0.1% RTP advantage.

Reels/Paylines: 3×5/5

Min/Max bet: £0.10/£125.00

Jackpot: 1,000x

Progressive: No

1. Goblin’s Cave (Playtech) – 99.3% RTPgoblins-cave-video-slot

Simple, sleek and entertaining – This goblin-riches themed slot does not only carry a simple design but also reverts back to the old 3×3 reel that is throwback for many of us these days. With the multi-spin feature you have the opportunity to hold any valuable symbols and with the highest RTP out there I can only say: “Kick back, relax and enjoy the show!”

Reels/Paylines: 3×3/3

Min/Max bet: £0.10/£5.00

Jackpot: 150x

Progressive: No

Lotto Winners Stories

Actually, the life a person who wins a lottery should end like this: “they lived happily ever after.” Unfortunately, it is rarely the case in real life. At least, that’s what has been the experience of many people who have won huge amounts of money through lotteries. So, winning alone is not enough. You need to learn to keep the money. Studies show that nearly 70 percent of the lottery winners lose all their money within seven years. These are 5 of those tragic lottery winners stories

Abraham Shakespeare

5. Abraham Shakespeare ($30 Million)

It was in 2006 that Abraham Shakespeare won $30 million in a lottery. The moment he won the lottery, his family members and friends started hounding him for money. 

Dorice Moore whom Shakespeare befriended tricked him into believing that she was protecting him from the greedy ones who were hounding him for his money. She got all his assets transferred into her name. In 2009, Shakespeare suddenly went missing. 

In 2012, Dorice Moore was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to mandatory life imprisonment without parole. Reportedly, Shakespeare told his mother, a few weeks before he was murdered, that life would have been much better if he had not won the lottery.

David Lee Edwards

4. David Lee Edwards ($27 million)

Edwards, a former drug addict as well as felon, won $27 million in 2001 in a jackpot. He was unemployed and was living in South Florida. After he got the windfall, he purchased a home in Palm Beach Gardens for $1.6 million, three numbers of horses, a fiber optics business, a Lear jet, a limo business, a Lamborghini Diablo for $200,000 and many other luxuries.

He and his wife involved in use of drugs once again and had several run-ins with the police for possessing crack cocaine, heroin and pills. In a short period of time, he lost all the money he had and ended up in a storage place where he lived surrounded by human excreta.

5 tragic lottery winners stories

3. Michael Carroll ($15 million)

Michael Carroll was just 26 years old when he won $15 million in a British jackpot in 2002. Soon, he was left with nothing as he spent all the money on parties, hookers, cocaine and cars. The National Lottery jackpot winner was issued an order to complete drug testing as well as treatment for a period of 12 months after he admitted to possessing cocaine worth more than EUR 1,500. 

Reportedly, he also spent a part of his fortune on quad bikes, a Spanish villa, flashy jewelry and demolition-derby cars. Carroll was sent to jail following an altercation in 2006 and was subsequently convicted for possession of drugs.

Jack Whittaker

2. Jack Whittaker ($315 million)

Jack Whittaker from West Virginia was already worth approximately $17 million at the time of winning the multi-state Powerball jackpot for $315 million in 2002. Whittaker spent most of the lottery money for good. He built churches and donated 10 percent of the money to Christian charities. He also set up the Jack Whittaker foundation for providing food and clothes to low-income families. 

However, his life started falling apart after he was arrested for drunk driving and threatening a bartender. He was ordered to attend Alcoholics Anonymous weekly meetings. In addition, he was sued by a woman on charges that he fondled her for sexual pleasure. Thieves stole $500,000 and $200,000 from him on two occasions.

His wife and he divorced when he became an alcoholic. His 17-year-old granddaughter whom he gave a weekly allowance of more than $2,000 and her boyfriend died of drug overdose. A little later, Whittaker’s daughter died of unknown causes.

Billie-Harrell

1. Billie Harrell ($31 million)

In less than two years after winning $31 million in lottery, Bob Harrell was left with no money. He donated some of his winnings to those in need and lent money to close friends and relatives to him. His generosity worked against him. 

When he became broke, his wife left him. Later, the Texas man killed himself. In his own home he was found dead with a gunshot wound on his head.
