Slots Review: Garfield - It's All About Me, Men in Black, Bally's Cartoon Jackpot New Games

6 August 2005

You may think there are just three slot reviews here, however, with Bally gathering a group of their top cartoon slots (see #3); there are plenty of cute characters to go around for players looking for more variety in their play.

1) Garfield - It's All About Me:

Doesn't that say it all about this amusing, yet bigheaded cat? Garfield is accompanied by his opponent Odie the dog, owner Jon and his gal-pal Arlene. Thought balloons display Garfield's thoughts about a never-ending quest for food and how to get Odie in trouble. The bonus events are packaged to occur both on screen and via a top box grid.

With Mission Refrigerator, the player selects a four square path to the fridge for Garfield while Jon sleeps. Each square the cat touches causes either a credit award or a noise. If Garfield reaches the fridge without waking Jon up, you move on to the higher-level bonus, played out on the top box wheel. Target Practice bonus shows Garfield weighing a pie in his hand, with three potential targets in the background--Jon, his girlfriend Arlene or Odie and your selection reveals the bonus award. At that time, a trivia question will appear on the screen with two possible answers wherein your answer will trigger Garfield to fling the pie. If the answer is correct, the pie hits the victim and moves you up to the top box for a spin and reward at the Slice of Life bonus wheel.

Garfield antics are ongoing in this game with the advantages being a hearty chuckle and additional credits.

2) Men in Black:

is back with the truly strange alien characters, Agent Zen, MIB boss and Frank the Pug, the alien-talking bulldog. Line up three or more Aliens and you are away to the Find the Alien bonus round. The screen opens up to MIB control room where Agent Zen provides a selection of 20 file folders that will offer extra coin, Frank the Pug or an Alien Wanted Poster. If you choose an Alien Wanted Poster, there will be a second level displaying five characters, one of which is the alien and pays the larger bonus. If Frank the Pug is located, three of the five characters are eliminated. Additionally, the Neuralizer Bonus is triggered with three scattered neuralizer symbols on the reels. Neuralizer is the pen shaped device used in the films to erase the memories of people who see aliens. Extra credits for this round include Extra Picks and/or a top box bonus event where bonus numbers are displayed within a scrolling device that stops on a final reward.

If outer space and far-out characters is for you, then look no further than this appealing game.

3) Bally's Cartoon Jackpot New Games:

Watch for a gathering of all Bally's Cartoon Characters as they release a sterling line-up of progressive slots that offer Instant Wins of $100,000+. Listed in order of release up to 2006.

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.”
