2 Slot Machines Reviewed, with John Grochowski

download (1)Do you play slots?  What’s your Favorite?

I bet your favorite slot is like your favorite casino – it’s the one you found the rush of a jackpot early in your hobby of gambling!  It’s the place that you win the most at!  It’s the game that entertains you for the longest time on your bankroll!!

Why else?  It comes down to money doesn’t it?

Well, maybe not all the time.  I have some favorites that can be quite volatile – Cashman Slots by Aristocrat, anything Monopoly, Willy Wonka (3-reel), Double-Double Bonus Video Poker in single line, Triple Play, or SpinPoker.  AND I STILL GO BACK TO THEM OVER AND OVER – does that happen to you?

Well enough about me.  Two new slots you should know about. I have a new favorite of mine that has been around for a while in New England and a new slot I saw in Atlantic City at Borgata (yes, I do leave New England sometimes to gamble – I can hear Vegas calling…..). John Grochowski will cover the 2nd one.


This Bally’s Asian-themed Slot performs well against competing casino games from manufacturers known for their video slot work like IGT or WMS.  I have had consistant good luck and have played for long periods of time.  I can’t say that all my friends here at NETG can say the same.  The bonus is triggered by getting 3 emerald symbols that appear only on reels 2-4. Once you get it, look up and you’ll get one of three bonus games. All three bonuses can payout well or not at all – just like any other slot machine.  But the graphics, the sound, and the “throbbing chair” are great.  imagesThe three bonuses are 1) Locking wilds – 5 free spins where wilds will fall onto the play field. They will remain locked for all future spins. 2) Raining wilds – very similar except the wilds are only for that one spin. 3)Reel Blast – will have large symbols in the middle of the expanded reels.

The progressive is randomly triggered if you get a pearl symbol on reels 1 or 5. I don’t think you need to get both of them but just because you get a pearl doesn’t mean you’ll start the progressive game. As in many of these genre, expect the mini or minor bonuses – especially the mini.


John writes, “Two of the biggest names in slot machines, Bally Technologies and WMS Gaming, are together under the Scientific Games umbrella nowadays.

Both have had more than their share of innovations in building games that keep us entertained, and Scientific Games plans to build on that tradition with its own iconic titles.

caddyshack-1One that players will just have to check out is Caddyshack, the classic 1980 golf comedy starring Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield, Michael O’Keefe and Ted Knight. It’s one of the most quotable movies of all time, chock full of iconic scenes and lines.

Movie magic really comes to life in the bonus events, themed after classic Caddyshack scenes.
