Non-Standard Slots

The reviews in this category cover online slots that are difficult to categorise. For example, they may not look much like a traditional slot game, or they may be similar to IGT’s “Multi-way” concept where they look and feel like a 5-reeler but don’t have the traditional paylines. Basically any slot game that doesn’t fit in!

Davinci Diamonds Dual Play Online Slot (IGT)

Posted By: Dave Letterman

IGT have just released a new version of their popular Davinci Diamonds slot to the online world at Kerching Casino, called “Davinci Diamonds Dual Play“. It’s an interesting take on the original Davinci Diamonds effectively stacking 2 games one above the other and turning it into a 40-payline game.

What has previously been referred to as “Tumbling Reel” becomes known as “Tumble Thru” in the new version which is quite logical because the symbols drop from the top game into the bottom game when winning combos are hit. It also adds the “Big Win” indicator first introduced by IGT in their excelllent Star Trek slot which kicks in on a 10x win.

Bruce Lee Casino Slot (UK Only)

Posted By: Dave Letterman

The latest WMS casino slot to be launched at Jackpot Party is the land-based slot machine, Bruce Lee. A bit of a surprise here in that the gameplay has changed, most notably in the reel layouts but also in the way the expanding wilds are now stacked wilds and the bonus round (free spins) can be triggered in 3 seperate ways. Most of the time you will get 5 free spins – like on the casino slot machine you see in land-based versions – but in the online slot there is a way to trigger up to 20 free spins. All wth stacked wilds!

Online Slots With Stacked Wilds

Posted By: Dave Letterman

Note: Check out some videos of online slots with stacked wilds at Slotjunkies.

Not sure about you, but when I look for entertaining online slots, free spins are the key, but this is closely backed up by the concept of the “Stacked Wild” symbol. Or, in fact, Expanding Wild symbols. Briefly for those who don’t know what this means, it is a Wild symbol that can potentially cover all the symbols on a reel. A Stacked Wild is a Wild symbol that comes in blocks – the number depending on the number of positions in view on a reel (3 or 4 is the norm) while an expanding wild is a single Wild that, when it lands, expands to cover the whole reel.

Treasures Of Troy Slot – IGT Multiway

Posted By: Dave Letterman

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

Triple Fortune Dragon Slot Review

Posted By: Dave Letterman

Triple Fortune Dragon SlotWagerworks, a subsiduary of IGT UK, have just released a new online slot called “Triple Fortune Dragon“, a 243 payline slot with a Japanese theme based on the Land based casino slot game of the same name. I’ve just been playing it at Virgin Casino and am pleased to say it offers something a little different rather than just being a clone of an existing slot as so many new ones are these days. Actually it reminds me of the popular 50 Lions and 50 Dragons slots that you see in Vegas and even more prominently in Macau, although this one doesn’t have stacked wilds like those two do.

When I say 243 paylines (IGT term this “Multiway”), what this essentially means is that a symbol can appear on any reel of the slot and be in a winning combination. With the exception of 9’s and 10’s, you need 3 of any symbol to get a win. To initiate the free spins bonus, you need 3 bonus symbols (or more) on the first 3 reels (as in the screenshot here). The bonus round gives you 15 free spins where all wins

Davinci Diamonds – Slot Mining!

Davinci Diamonds
If you’re a slot player and been to the Meccas of Vegas or Macau, you’ll probably be familar with Davinci Diamonds. I played it first at the Wynn in Vegas and again at the amazing Venetian in Macau and I couldn’t quite make up my mind if I liked it or not but thought I better add a heads up to Online Casinos & Slot Machines [] at least as it’s a recognisable game and features “Tumbling Reels”!

Now, Wagerworks – a wholly-owned subsiduary of slot machine manufacturer IGT – have released the anticipated online version and amazingly, on time too! It is now available to play online at Virgin CasinoBlue Square and PaddyPower Games, although unfortunately for Americans you can’t play Wagerworks casinos (it’s the law!. Also available now is the Davinci Diamond freeplay slot – but again, no Americans 🙁

For those that aren’t familiar with Davinci Diamonds, it’s a slightly new concept
