Confused Leo Vegas Welcome Bonus

Hi, I have had contact from several regular UK online casino players to ask for my thoughts on the Leo Vegas Casino welcome bonus. The truth is that nobody seems to understand it. On looking at their website and reading the welcome bonus information it does not make things any clearer. What exactly do you get when you register and start playing at LeoVegas Casino? There is definitely a 100% or 200% match offer and some free spins involved somewhere but nobody really seems sure.

I have done my own little investigation and have come up with following. I am not 100% sure that this is correct but it is what I can make from piecing together the information from the various pages on the website.

The £1500 free and 250 FREE SPINS is correct. With regard to the free games, you will see some banners that state 200 free spins and some that say 250 free spins. I have also seen one that say you get 50 free spins. In fact all of these are correct. It appears that when you register for a new player account at LeoVegas you will be 50 FREE SPINS. This is a 50 Free Spins no obligation no deposit bonus. Of course there are terms you must follow if you want to collect any winnings. The next stage of free spins follows your first deposit. Make a deposit between £10 and £50 to get another 200 free spins. This give you a total of 250 FREE SPINS.

The other confusion appears that some advertisements show a welcome bonus of 200% up to £1500. To me this means that if I deposit £750 LeoVegas will give me a £1500 bonus. This is not correct. There is a 200% double match part of the welcome bonus. On your first deposit you will get 200% but only up to a total of £100. The rest of the £1500 welcome bonus is received following deposits 2, 3 and 4. A 100% cash match up to £500 is given on deposits 2 and 3, and a 50% up to £400 on deposit 4 if you deposit £800.

I do hope this clarifies the welcome bonus situation. This is my own opinon and I do hope it is correct. Feel free to add any additional information or details of your own experience at LeoVegas.

New Playtech Online Slots

Playtech have been really busy. Whilst visiting some of my favourite online casinos today I was quite taken aback. Playtech usually release new video slots every now and again and sometimes there are just 1 or maybe 2 new games if you are lucky. But today I visited WINNER CASINO and found some new Playtech slots, and then when I went to check out TITAN CASINO I found even more!!

ASH GAMING are a specialist slots development company that are now owned by Playtech. I have found three new Ash Gaming video slots and two new Playtech games. They all follow different themes and are the usual high standard releases we have come to expect. One big thing that has been happening is the attempt to cash in on the Chinese players. You will notice a lot of new games that all have either Chinese names or themes or style. The new chinese games I have found are: FEI CUI GONG ZHU, NIAN NIAN YOU YU, FORTUNE JUMP and MAGICAL STACKS. These are in addition to the five new classic video slots I have found.

The five new games are:

WACKY WATERS which is a underwater themed slot machine that offers 15 paylines, random wilds, Alberts Underwater Bonus and FREE GAMES. This is bright and fun and worth a play.
LAND OF GOLD is the new PLaytech video slot based on the Irish Luck and all geared up for St.Patricks Day in March. The usual helping of leprechauns and 576 ways to win on a strange reels layout.
JUNGLE TROUBLE is new from ASH GAMING. It has 15 paylines and and in game bonus feature for increasing multiplier on wild wins. There is also three different FREE SPINS bonus games to play.
HAWAIIAN TREASURE is the next game from Ash Gaming. There are 25 paylines across 5 reels and win 12 FREE GAMES with the bonus symbols. During free spins the wins are high due to less symbols on the reels.
CATWALK is a huge new game and features an incredible 100 paylines. Join the fashion show in New York and win cash gifts in the Boutique Bonus. This game also offers expanding wilds.

All these new games are real fun to play. I have found some detailed reviews and links to free demo play for all these new games at A great site I use with links to all the latest online video slots.

Have great fun playing, of course I will be back real soon with news of more great video slots and other online casino games and bonuses.

Top Gun Video Slot or Not

I just been playing the new Playtech slot game TOP GUN at Titanbet Casino. I was quite excited at first to be honest, after looking at the spec with different bonus features and free spins I had any initial opinion that it would be a great game. And bring back some awesome 1980's memories.

The game starts off OK. The symbols are basic, I would of expected more from such a big film with iconic moments. There are the standard 5 reels but this game uses the 243 ways instead of the regular fixed paylines. The dogfight wilds that can eb randomly triggered on any spin are a nice touch.... but very, very slow. It takes and age for a plane to fly into view then move around the reels in an aimless fashion and then maybe strike a few symbols and turn them wild. It says you can get 1 to 15 wilds like this but usually is just one or two. The most I have ever experienced is 4. This feature can be useful but more often than not just takes up valuable playing time, and gets tedious and boring.

The biggest disappointment with the game is Playtechs lack of enthusiasm and inventiveness. For many licenced games like Scarface from NetEnt or Terminator from Microgaming you will see that the slot game actually has something to do with the film. This Top Gun video slot uses the films name and characters Charlie, Iceman, Jester, Goose and Stinger. It doesn't even have a symbol for Maverick!!! the Main actor Tom Cruise and his character must have put a block or something because there are no clips from the film, some useless sound samples and that is about it.

The main bonus game has had very little thought.... lets just throw some free spins if they get the bonus symbols. It could be any game. I my honest opinion this shows exactly where Playtech have been going with their online video slots over the past few years. There is no thought. They just chuck them out all the same, just change the name and a few symbols.. Don't worry though Playtech, Microgaming do exactly the same and there games are even worse in terms of gameplay and quality.

Sexy Girls and Gambling

Hi all, another of my completely irrelevant posts about gambling and online casinos. I do like to keep up to date with what is going on in the online gambling world and for men that like to gamble what better than a whole host of sexy females!!

Casinos and many other male oriented pastimes often use sexy images to help sell the product, as we all know SEX SELLS. Many of the online casinos use this philosophy a little with the live dealers and maybe get some C LIST CELEBRITY to star in a TV advertising campaign. But the method is becoming less and less inviting for some reason. That is one reason why I have always loved ENERGY CASINO. Every year at about this time I receive through the post the Energy Casino calendar. The 2016 issue has just arrived, a little late, but it was worth the wait. This is a calendar not so much about the casino but about the girls they have working there. All these girls are on their live dealer games and really look the part.

They also do a little more than just provide a calendar each year. They do have a good casino and they even have a video channel where you can see the girls backstage during the photo shoot. So for those of you that meet the age requirements (lol) here is a little teaser.

If you want to see more of these girls you can visit the casino or the Energy Girls Youtube channel. This video is only 2:40 long but it breaks up the day and is something you never get bored of.

What is the best bonus?

I am often asked the question of what is the best bonus you can get an online casino. There are many different types of bonus that you can claim when you register as a new player, or you can choose to opt out of all bonuses. The choice is yours. The main bonus you will find at nearly all casinos is a deposit percentage bonus. Normally this will be a 100% cash match that will double your deposit, up to a certain value. Other casinos will reduce the percentage offered but increase the total amount you can claim whereas others may increase the percentage but give you a smaller total amount.

So when it comes to a first deposit bonus you have to decide whether to want to claim as much cash as you can because you can deposit a large amount of cash, you could then go for big casino bonuses of up to £4,000. But of course to get £4,000 free you would probably have to deposit at least £8,000. Still it's a lot of money.

If you are only looking to deposit up to £50 you should be able to find 150% or even 200% bonuses. The most common is the 100% cash match and most people should be pretty happy with this.

Another type of bonus that is often available is a FREE PLAY, or sometimes called a NO DEPOSIT BONUS. This is given to new players as soon as they register and allow the new player to look around and try a few games before making a deposit. This is obviously a good thing and sometimes some big amounts of money can be won. Just be careful here though because if you do win some good cash you will often find that in order to withdraw or use any of this money you have to make a significant deposit, and then wager perhaps 30x the amount you have deposited, and the winnings limit that you can claim is often very low, perhaps you can claim only £50 of anything you win. or maybe up to the total amount of the bonus that you were given.So a no deposit bonus can in no way referred to as a "blank cheque".

Another possibility is a FREE SPINS bonus. Many casinos will tempt you with free spins on the latest online slot machine games. This can be a good thing. You get to play the casino games without any risk. The amount of free spins will be at a set amount, and on certain games. There will be a maximum win limit and to convert these winnings into real cash to you need to make a deposit and meet the wagering requirements. But still it can be a good bonus to go for.

At the end of the day whether you get FREE PLAY, FREE SPINS or FREE CASH as part of a deposit bonus it all amounts to the same thing. You get some free money to play the casino games. Any winnings you make from this "free" bonus money are subject to terms and conditions, minimum deposits, maximum amounts and wagering play through. So my suggestion is not to necessarily look at the percentage match or the amount of cash but all the wagering requirements and other terms. This way you will find the best value bonuses. And it will help you choose the online casino that is right for you.
