IGT Slots

IGT (International Gaming Technology to give them their full title) make the bulk of slots that you find in land-based casinos including Cleopatra, Star Trek, Wolf Run and Pharaohs Fortune among other familiar names. The irony is that, while IGT are an American company, their policy is that US players are not allowed o play their slots online. This is a result of US lawmaking policy that frowns on online gambling when the company is based offshore. In fact, IGT have very strict conditions that prohibit players from any country where online gambling falls into a grey area or is outright banned, so many players will be unable to play their games. Being in the UK myself, I’m fine and I put some of heir slots right at the top of my list. In particular, “Cleopatra”, “Wolf Run” and “Triple Fortune Dragon” are fantastic free spins slots that are all reviewed here. IGT slots are Flash based so there is no download required – they run within a browser.

If you want to see some videos of online IGT slots that are available on the Wagerworks platform, including the bonus free spin features in action, head on over to the IGT Slots website.

Incidentally, a number of IGT slot games were initially launched under the Wagerworks brand, a company that along with Barcrest, IGT bought out to develop their online slot portfolio. As part of a re-branding excecise in 2011, the Wagerworks name is being replaced with the IGT name.

Novomatic, Aristocrat & IGT slots all in one place!

Land-based slot machines, online

Where to play the top land-based games online, all in one place!

In this day and age with just about every slot game developer now having their games available in a number of online casinos, it’s proven pretty difficult to find a casino that has all of the best land-based slot machines in one place.

I’m a big fan of games like the Novomatic “Super Gaminator” games Book Of Ra, Lucky Lady’s Charm and Katana and I like some of the older IGT slots like Cleopatra and Pharaoh’s Fortune, Kitty Glitter and even Rainbow Riches from time to time. When I am overseas, Aristocrat games like Where’s The Gold and Pompeii also lure me in as do WMS games like Wizard Of Oz, Zeus II and Raging Rhino.

Online however, I have only come across one casino that has Novomatic, IGT and Aristocrat slot machines: BetVictor is a well-known UK bookmaker primarily and has stealthily built up it’s online casino into a very comprehensive games site. It is a “no download” casino, so all the games are played in a browser but Book Of Ra and Lucky Lady’s Charm sit alongside Pharaoh’s Fortune, Cats, Kitty Glitter, Cleopatra and the aforementioned Aristocrat slots.

Mr Green Casino Review (IGT + Net Ent)

Posted By: admin


Click here to visit the Mr Green Casino website

Quite by accident, I stumbled on an online casino I hadn’t previously come across that served up a selection of popular IGT and Net Entertainment slot machines. The name Mr Green Casino struck me as a bit odd and doing a bit of research discovered that it is run out of Sweden and licenced in Malta. Both of those perked my interest so I signed up to test it out.

To cut to the chase, the overall experience was very good but then again, knowing how strict IGT are when it comes to licensing out their games that probably shouldn’t be a surprise. I went through the whole process of depositing, playing and cashing out and to be honest, bar a couple of minor gripes (see below) couldn’t really fault Mr Green, whoever he is.

IGT Star Trek Slot – Live Long & Prosper!

Posted By: admin


IGT have released their new (as at March 2011) Star Trek slot online – ot long behind the land-based version rolled out in fact. I guess it’s going head-to-head against the WMS Star Trek game but they are two very different games.

Well, OK, not so different to look at – but very different to play. I like the WMS one (available exclusively at Jackpot Party Casino), especially the land-based version with it’s amazing vibrating control seat and stereo headrest but it loses some of it’s appeal online without the chair.

Cleopatra Slot – 5 Scatter Win!

Posted By: admin


 

Last week (January 2011) I was up in London and playing the casino slot machines at the Empire casino in Leicester Square and the Palm Beach in Mayfair and I couldn’t hit jack on Cleopatra. It was so bad I ended up playing Book Of Ra and Pharaohs Fortune most of the time. The rubbish session was due in no little part to the fact that the land based version of the Cleopatra slot has a pretty poor payout (no pay on 2 9′s and often on 2 scatters even!).

Barcrest Slot Machines – Online Versions

Posted By: admin


Many UK casino punters will be familiar with the name Barcrest. They have been supplying casino slot machines to piers and amusement arcades in the UK since the year dot pretty much and now they have started to bring some of their more popular slot machines to online casinos.

Barcrest are owned by IGT so the slot machines they release online are developed and released through Wagerworks which is also an IGT UK subsiduary. Consequently this means that online casinos licensing Wagerworks software are the places to find Barcrest slot machines.

Book Of Ra Slot & Pharaohs Fortune Now at Grosvenor Casino

Posted By: admin


Grosvenor Casino (renamed from “G Casino” in Q3 2011, owned by the Rank Organisation and the online outlet for the land-based Grosvenor Casinos) have recently added a plethora of new slot machines to the Games section of their website (while the casino section has a new download casino supplied by Playtech). Some of the new slots are from IGT, others from Novomatic and the latest batch of slots include two of my own favourites: Book Of Ra (Novo) and Pharaohs Fortune (IGT).

Note however that because Novomatic slot machines like Book Of Ra do not always support the US Dollar currency, you shouldn’t sign up an account in USD or the games will not load (and you can’t change the currency after you have signed up!).

Land-based casino goers will probably be familiar with both these slot machines. Book Of Ra (along with the similar Lord Of The Ocean slot) has a unique bonus round where one symbol gets turned into an expanding scatter symbol. While high variance and with a difficult-to-hit feature, you can get some great wins on this. In fact, playing at Empire Casino in Leicester Square (London Clubs) only this week I hit an £1,800 bonus round off a £1.50 bet!

Highest Paying IGT Slots?

Posted By: admin


Ever wondered what the highest paying online slots are? The issue of transparency has long been debated by slots players and it’s been an uphill battle for many years trying to get the slot machine manufacturers to publish the RTP of their slot games. The general concensus is that it’s the casinos who may or may not want to tell people just what they are set to, especially in land-based casinos where the returns are generally a fair bit lower than when you are playing online. But some help might be at hand.

Treasures Of Troy Slot – IGT Multiway

Posted By: admin


Treasures Of TroyAn interesting new online slot machine arrived at Virgin casino last week. IGT’s popular Treasures Of Troy slot game, using the patented Multiway system has gone live. For those unfamiliar with this slot machine, it’s unusual in a couple of ways. It retains the tried and trusted free spins bonus (10 – 20 games at 2x) but the look and feel of the Treasures Of Troy slot machine is not like anything else.

For a start, Treasures of Troy has 4 symbols per reel (20 panels) and what’s more, each of the 20 symbol positions is a reel in itself! So effectively it’s a 20 reel slot in

Online Slots From Vegas

Posted By: admin


On a trip to attend the G2E show in Las Vegas in November 2010 (and subsequenly October 2011!), I came across a number of slot games on the floor at Encore and Wynn that can now also be found online. I knew that there was a crossover because of IGT’s link to Wagerworks, the online casino software provider whom IGT (UK) bought a while back, but it was interesting to see which online slots crossed the divide from land-based – and which probably should!

Also the release of Jackpot Party to the UK, an online casino from WMS Gaming who make a lot of the Vegas slot games such as Bruce Lee, Wizard Of Oz, Zeus and Star Trek among other familiar names, was a pretty good indicator!

NOTE: If you are looking for a specific Vegas slot to play online, check out Slotseek, the slot search engine!

Pretty much all of the online slots mentioned in this article can be played online although in the majority of instances, not by players living in North America. However the Slot Junkies video site has video demos of all of these slots which not only show the games in action, but also feature the bonus rounds.

The obvious online slots that have their roots in land-based are the very popular “Cleopatra” and “Wolf Run” games, both made by IGT. You can play a free version of both games at Online Casinos Vegas and they are available at several online casinos. It was no surprise to also find “Cleopatra II” in both locations also, a game that I now marginally prefer to the originial, helped by a very decent win I had in the Encore I might add!

You are probably already aware that each of these slots has a free spins bonus so I’ll avoid going into detail, but these are three very popular slot games. Cleo and Wolf Run are also common in UK casinos as it happens - i have played them in Rendezvous (Brighton), the recently closed-down Paddington Casino (Ladbrokes, London) and The Empire in Leicester Square.
