Chase the Flush vs Flushes Gone Wild

Most new table offerings are new riffs on familiar concepts. Every so often, that leads to different game developers hitting on similar ideas at the same time. That happened a few years ago when a walk around the Global Gaming Expo display floor found four blackjack side bets that paid when the dealer busted. This year, I tried out two games that paid off on flushes of varying lengths, American Gaming Systems’ Chase the Flush and Shuffle Master/Scientific Games’ Flushes Gone Wild. Both were fun to play and both seem like they have a chance to carve out a following…

Sphinx 4D video slots vs Sphinx 3D

When International Game Technology merged with Spielo International a few years ago, IGT already owned many of the most best-loved slot games around. Megabucks, Double Diamond, Wolf Run and the ever-popular Wheel of Fortune are just a few in IGT’s hit parade.   Spielo didn’t bring as many popular favorites to the merger, but it did bring Sphinx. The original Sphinx, an Egyptian-themed video slot with a free-spin bonus, has been a durable favorite that spawned several successor games. One is Sphinx 3D, one of the most popular games going today with amazing three-dimensional effects with no need for special glasses.…

Ultimate X Poker Bonus Streak

If you’re a video poker player, chances are you know Ultimate X Poker from International Game Technology. It’s the most successful multiline video poker game with an extra bet for bonus features. In Ultimate X, the extra features are multipliers that come with any winning hand. If you then win on the next hand, winners are multiplied from two to 12 times, depending on the previous winner. IGT, naturally enough, would like to build on the success with Ultimate X Bonus Streak, which is available in Triple Play, Five Play and Ten Play formats. Each has a 10 credit per…

Pappy Van Winkle At Jack Binions Tunica

Some people would go as far as saying that Pappy Van Winkle is like the unicorns of bourbons.  With it’s smooth aged to perfection taste and only 7-8,000 bottles released each year you would probably agree.  You will find Pappy on many fine restaurants and bars drink menus, but most likely it’s followed by when available and most of the time its not. When I heard that Jack Binion’s Steakhouse at Horseshoe had the elusive Pappy Van Winkle I had to try it.  They have bottles of the 12-year and 10-year so I thought why not, I will try both. …

New Aristocrat Games Released

What do you do when a shark comes flying out of tornado right at you? Grab a chainsaw and defend yourself, right? And if the bonus credits mount while the sharks meet their maker, so much the better. That’s the way it goes in Aristocrat Technologies’ new Sharknado slot machines, based on the series of campy TV movies that have brought thrill-seekers to the Syfy Channel since 2013. “Sharknado is a very fun slot game,” said Matt Wilson, senior vice president for global operations at Aristocrat. “This has a cult following, and it’s obviously a bizarre concept that the movie’s…

Not Your Same Ol’ Blackjack – Double Up and Toss One 21

Blackjack is the most popular casino game, so it’s only natural that new table games shown at Global Gaming Expo would include a healthy portion of blackjack variants. Take Double Up Blackjack from Score Gaming. After your first two cards, you can Double Up by making a bet equal to or less than your blackjack bet. After that, you receive no more cards. Winners are paid even money, just like your main blackjack and double down bets. Dealt a 20 vs. a dealer’s 6, a player would never want to double down, which brings one more card and about a…

Here’s Looking at You, Kid – Casablanca Slots

I’ve seen “Casablanca” at least a dozen times. I’ve seen it in a theater as part of a series of classic films. I’ve seen it on TV in pre-home video days, and I’ve seen it on VHS and DVD. Until this fall’s Global Gaming Expo at the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas, I’d never seen it on a slot machine. But when I saw a sign in the corridor touting a Casablanca slot at the Everi booth, I knew I had to take a look. Everi’s slots were set up in demo mode so all I had…
