Bonus Slots Update #2 Including Dragon's Gold, YAHTZEE Looking for Love, Spring Carnival and Super Spin Sizzling 7

5 August 2004


Let's begin another expedition for newer bonus slots with these four versions.

1) Dragon's Gold: There are up to five rounds to enjoy in the Jousting Bonus feature of this 15-line slot. When mounted knights land on reels one and five you select either Sir Black or Sir White to joust for bonus credit awards and possibly move you forward in this bonus round. If your knight is defeated, the round is over, but when both knights remain in the saddle after the battle, the player is awarded a consolation prize and advances further into the round.

Also, win all five rounds and you not only receive the credit awards but also are prompted to select one maiden for additional credits. When three dragon symbols land on a payline, you advance to the Dragon's Gold bonus.

Here the player steps along a footpath of ten stones revealing credits, multipliers or symbols that could help or hinder their journey into the days of yore.

2) YAHTZEE Looking for Love: There's more from the makers of YAHTZEE. You'll be looking for love in the midst of four bonus rounds.

Those familiar with this game will recognize the YAHTZEE bonus that lets players build different combinations of the five dice to earn points. Ones are wild and five of a kind is YAHTZEE.

Another familiar symbol is 'Mr. Pips' now appearing with his love interest, 'Ms.Pips' who subs for all symbols except the bonus symbols revealing different multipliers.

The 'Blind Date' bonus gives you the challenge to match up Mr. and Ms. Pips for more rewards.

Your next challenge is the 'Fair Maiden' round where the player builds a column of dice up a tower in order to rescue the heroine. You can stack six dice correctly if you choose higher values on each ascending dice. Get through these three rounds and it's on to the final event where you simply choose a honeymoon destination to reveal a final bonus reward. Ain't Love Grand?

3) Spring Carnival: is a horseracing themed slot featuring plenty of free game opportunities. Whenever you hit three, four or five scattered 'money bag' symbols, 15 free games are rewarded.

All of your winnings during the free games are tripled and if the moneybags land again during the free spins, you'll win even more. Some casinos offer a bonus bank of machines known as 'Jackpot Carnival Hyperlink'.

While playing the base game, a 'Clown Horn' may sound on the bank of machines and all those playing get ready to go for a jackpot prize. A laughing clown drops balls into prize spots on each machine and if you receive three balls drop into one spot, the jackpot is yours. This game will 'put a spring in your step' and provide some entertaining fun among the players.

4) Super Spin Sizzling 7: This five-reeler boasts an exciting difference. The first three reels feature the traditional 7's and bars but the fourth reel is the one you want to watch.

This one has bonus multiplier symbols of up to 10X your base three-reel win. Should the fourth reel land on a Mystery Nudge symbol, blank symbols on the first three reels nudge up or down awarding additional credits.

Add an extra bonus on the fourth reel that pays up to 100 credits and you can see why you might be watching that fourth reel so closely.

For a really Super Spin, land three Sizzling 7's and a 10X pay symbol on the fourth reel to walk away with 10,000 credits.

Until next we meet in the Slots Playground…

Gayle Mitchell, one of the first women to break through the “felt ceiling” of the previously male-dominated world of casino gambling gurus, is now regarded as one of North America’s leading experts on casino gambling.

Gayle’s commitment to educating the gambling public began almost 20 years ago, when she walked into a Las Vegas casino and experienced for the first time the thrill that comes with winning even a small bet. She made up her mind then and there to learn every game in the casino, and a short time later resolved to make a career out of sharing her insights with other gamblers. She had always considered herself to be a good teacher – she believes in keeping things simple – and decided that she would commit herself to showing newbies how to become knowledgeable, intelligent gamblers.

Gayle started her own publishing company, and her first book came out in 1997. Today she is the author of seven books, seven EBooks, and a set of five Tips booklets, and has presented many seminars on casino gambling. Currently she teaches Learn to Win Programs with other leading experts at GamblingTeachers.com. The site is a player-friendly Free Gambling Learning Center offering 300+ online lessons for popular casino games plus Gambling Teachers Blog. Gayle also operates www.gamerisms.com, which is a games glossary site for sport, casino, skill and video game players.

“It’s a fact that less than 2 percent of casino players know the profitable, correct strategies and/or rules for most casino games,” Gayle says. “Our group of career teachers and writers are working to improve that statistic.”
