New Slots On Gala Casino

Posted by Gareth on: Wednesday, May. 20th 2015 10:54 AM

Gala Casino are a great brand who never rest on their laurels. We have seen casino sites out there that seem to be happy with offering their players a mere thirty or forty games, but, I wonder how long they will be around.

This month Gala Casino added another twelve slots, which is quite impressive, and to keep it ‘fresh’, the games come from six separate software providers. We’ve all been on online casinos where there is an apparent wealth of choice, a huge list of slots to play, but often, once you’ve played one, you’ve played them all.

Possible Casino Withdrawal Problems

Posted by Gareth on: Friday, May. 15th 2015 11:30 AM

MB24 casino have closed their doors to UK players and there is concern that UK members already registered on the site may be having difficulty withdrawing from their accounts. The fear has been sparked by reports that business partners have been having problems retrieving monies owed them.

UK players are no longer able to register on the site which is not registered with the Gambling Commission. The news is quite surprising because the UK registration and legislation issue was, or should have been, known to all casinos marketing to UK players in late 2014.

eCOGRA Casino Testing

Posted by Gareth on: Tuesday, May. 12th 2015 1:38 PM

If you are familiar with online casinos then you may have noticed that some of them have the eCOGRA badge amongst others such as GPWA. Both of these badges signify that the casino site is a ‘trusted one’, but what exactly does eCOGRA do?

eCOGRA is a UK approved testing agency, the ‘UK’ bit being the important part, anyone can test a site, so you need to be sure that the testers have themselves been tested, and as the UK is particularly tight when it comes to gaming regulation the UK seal of approval speaks volumes.

Biggest UK Slots Jackpot

Posted by Gareth on: Thursday, Apr. 16th 2015 3:16 PM

Last year gambling legislation was changed allowing slot machines in casinos to pay out up to £20,000 in a single jackpot. And, to our knowledge the first full payout has been hit by a lucky punter at the Casino MK in Milton Keynes.

Raw Casino

Mind you, it’s no surprise that it was paid out at the Aspers super casino as they’ve got a great record on big slots jackpots. The winner Joy Giles from Milton Keynes who took home the ‘big cheque’ is one of many big winners since the casino opened (do banks really accept cheques that big? Do they have a special till for them?).

Free Casino Spins

Posted by Gareth on: Friday, Apr. 10th 2015 2:14 PM

Most casino sites offer free spins, but with a lot of them they are only so that you can try out the games, no money can be withdrawn on winnings from them. Obviously casinos have to be careful with their freebies, and so attach strong terms and conditions to ‘real free spins’ which in most cases are more stringent than regular bonus conditions.

Raw Casino currently offers free spins every Wednesday on a chosen slot. It changes every week, so you will need to register to receive the info via email (you don’t have to deposit to receive the emails).

Poker Players To Be Taxed?

Posted by Gareth on: Tuesday, Mar. 31st 2015 2:44 PM

One of the good things about gambling is the lack of taxation for the punter. This applies to table games, online gaming, spread betting, and poker. For the moment that is!

Winnings on anything that is considered a ‘game of chance’ are not taxable in the UK. Recent research however is suggesting that poker is not a game of chance, as skills are required. The research carried out by University of Nottingham, Erasmus University in Rotterdam and VU University in Amsterdam concludes that ‘there is “substantial evidence” that the amount of skill involved in playing the game successfully outweighs the impact of mere chance’.

Gala Casino Promotions

Posted by Gareth on: Friday, Mar. 27th 2015 4:27 PM

Gala Casino have always got a good set of promotions running, so we thought we’d take a look at what’s currently on offer. They’ve got a few for regular players, plus, for new players they’ve got their standard welcome bonus still on offer.

First up though is their Megajackpots Prize Draw, which runs out on March 29th at 23.59 (GMT), so if you want to be in with a chance of grabbing your share of the £250,000 in their Mega-Tastic Giveaway you’ll need to get your skates on. It’s a prize draw, so you will need tickets to enter.

Lucky Admiral New Casino Launched

Posted by Gareth on: Tuesday, Mar. 24th 2015 12:06 PM

Ok, so another online casino is launched, but, the question that has to be asked is ‘apart from the new player bonus, why should I sign up at this casino’? For some players this is a bit of a redundant question, as they merely hop from one casino to another grabbing free bonuses, but for other players there are certain factors that need to be considered before entering credit card details.

First up is fairness. All casinos claim to be fair, but the only way you know if they are fair is if they are externally tested. Lucky Admiral are tested for random number generation by iTech Labs, so, that’s the first box ticked.

Leo Vegas Record Slots Win

Posted by Gareth on: Tuesday, Mar. 17th 2015 5:14 PM

Another casino has gained UK Gambling Commission licensing, and is now available for UK players. So what is so special about Leovegas.com?

Well, they are not going to guarantee wins, but, they do have a few good selling points. Sign up bonuses are good, a large variety of games are on offer, and in January 2014 one lucky winner scooped a record breaking jackpot.

From a mere one pound equivalent stake, a player from Sweden won £4.4 million on Mega Fortune Touch, after having previously won the iPad which he was playing on when he hit the jackpot. But, obviously those wins are few and far between, so what else do they have to offer?
