A new year brings new opportunities and challenges to the Casino Player. New opportunities from the raft of games already released, or set for release in, 2016. New challenges in that players must learn to maximise the return on their investment in those games (As well as a load of fun into the bargain)
For example, IGT has announced that they will be releasing 5 slot machines in the coming weeks. Granted, not all of theme are new and some will have already been released in the “Real World” (i.e. the Land Based Casino).
Most hotly tipped for taking the slot world by storm is the Family Guy Slot. Peter, Lois, Chris, Stewie and even the utterly unlovable Megan accompany you while you journey towards claiming what’s rightfully yours – the Jackpot (Providing that you really, really, really want to win it more than anyone else). Each character will imbue the bonus feature with their own inate ability, such as random wilds, to give your spins the little extra kick that they may need to win big.
Family Guy also includes a range of cutaway features, which are triggered at the beginning of each bonus game and help keep the chuckles going during these transitions.
Sherlock Holmes™ Slots follow the wily duo of Holmes and Watson as they proceed to prove that which to be “Elementary”, or not, as the case may be. It features four bonus games so mysterious, that even we don’t know what they’ll be yet.
Party Time Video Slots are undoubtedly one of IGTs best loved themes of all time, and soon the company will release a re-imagined version of the same. If you start seeing Drunken Pink elephants float across your field of view, don’t worry – that’s all part of the game and your drink has, in all likelihood, not been tampered with in any way.
And what opportunities does 2016 bring to Lotto Lovers, Roulette Afficionados and those with a fondness of games involving the prediction of numbers? Well, Players who continue to espouse the long practiced art of ascribing special significance to numbers, such as ages, days & months of the year might now turn their attention to the number 2016 itself.
Because Roulette Wheels and Lotto Balls tend not to number in the thousands, one almost logical step would be to split this number right down the middle, yeilding 20 and 15. But what (if anything) is special about these resultant numbers.
This might perhaps lead the player to wonder, what is special about these numbers individually. Well, since the Standard Genetic code codes for exactly 20 proteinogenic amino acids (without which life would not exist) that’s got to be a pretty important and signifant number, even if your not a Cell Biologist. But what of 15? Some player might like the fact that 15 is the number of visible symbols in the most popular slot layout of 3 x 5.
Of course just because a number is significant to a player, doesn’t mean it will necessarily come in straight away. But persistence pays, and providing you can afford the level of investment required your numbers are much more likely to land and you reach your goal of winnings on these other gametypes.
