The million dollar question is:
What makes a good slot game?
Let's talk about it. The answer is different for many people, but we have
broken it down to some basic components that we feel everyone can agree
- You guessed it! Bonus Rounds. As we have previously
stated, these will make or break your slots experience. They need to
be imaginative and have appeal to the casino patron or the game focus
just doesn't last long and you're moving on to a new slot game quicker
than lunchtime. Bad bonus rounds are a major disappointment to every
slots player! We want them to be fun and interactive, have high pay-outs
and most of all we want to feel as though we are getting our monies
worth. If you share these wants, we highly suggest that you play "Pay
Dirt" at Golden Reef Casino.
It meets all of the basics for any good slot game and the makers of
this game definitely used some imagination and knowledge of what we,
as slots patrons, want to play.
- Uniqueness. What can you get to make your playing experience
more unique? Do you have animation? Is the theme of the game consistent
throughout every area, or just on the slots? Is the overall playing
of the game fluid, or does it have hiccups and stall? A great game with
really neat features is located in Slots
Plus Casino. The name of the game is "I.R.I.S. 3000". It was one
of the first games that we played there and we have never seen anything
like it. If you want something unique, you have to try this game!
- Audio. It's music to our ears, literally! This is another
important component of the slots experience. Nothing is more annoying
than having irritating sounds, or elevator music that puts you to sleep,
when you are trying to get into a game. That's why we do like "Eagle's
Wings" The bonus round is fun and interactive, and we won't tell
you any more than that, so go try
it for yourself....
- Graphics. The first thing you see when you open a slot game is whatever
theme the provider has chosen for it and it usually matches the name
of the slot. For people that are very visual, poor graphics can very
much kill the game for them! We found a game that definitely doesn't
disappoint! You should try "Hitman" at Casino
Kingdom if you are one of these visual people. In fact, we like
this game so much that it is on our favorite
bonus round slots list. Not only are its graphics some of the better
ones they have out there, it has a very clean look to it and the overall
aesthetics of the casino are decent.
- Making it all come together. It is really hard to get into a game
when it is great in one area and very lacking in another. Many slots
we found have fantastic themes, and we are excited to see the themes
carried through to every aspect of the game, but we end up being disappointed.
Micro Gaming has
accomplished the overall goal of bringing all the great aspects of the
slots together, as shown in their movie inspired slots game, "Tomb Raider:
Secret of the Sword". Even though it is obviously based on a movie,
no one else has put it into a slot before and it is well executed. The
theme runs straight through every aspect, including the bonus round
missions, making it all in all a really good slot game! You can check
