Winners Slots Reviews: April 29
1) Reel Rich Devil: spins, locked combos and re-spins are one of the many unique options at this slot. To explain—there are 15 reel spots that can transform into 15 separate reels. A winning combo is locked while the other reels continue to spin. Should this re-spin produce additional winning combos, there is a lock and another re-spin until winners expand to all 15 spots.
The next feature is the Reel Hot Bonus triggered when five or more fireball symbols appear scattered on the reels. Your choice among 4 fireballs reveals the level of challenge as follows: Hot level=multipliers of 2X to 10X the total bet. Super Hot level=5X to 15X total bet. Extreme Hot Level=5X to 25X and Blazing Hot Level=10X to 40X the total bet.
Once the challenge is completed, five gems are displayed to announce bonus credits. One of the 5 gems is the Award All Credits bonus for a generous reward for all levels. The spinning opportunities plus challenging ‘the devil reels’ is the draw for this slot game.

2) Slingo Bonus Deluxe: you just know this slot will be a hit when you begin with a version of Double Diamonds.
Here’s the drill—1 wild=double wins, while 2 wild=4X wins. At this time, the bonus and flashing numbers appear to display the numbers of spins received at the Slingo board consisting of 25 squares.
Each square has a number ranging from 1-75 accompanied by 5 video reels for each column. Match the numbers to the big board for a hit that may include a joker for a bonus award. Your goal is to get a Slingo that is all numbers in a column, row or diagonal on the big board for 20 credits. A full card=100 credits and the chance for more if spins remain. Players attracted to this game will be fans of Bingo, Double Diamond and of course previous Slingo versions.

3) Wheel Hottie: offers two popular slot versions as the base games--Red, White and Blue 7s and Triple Sizzling 7s.
Count ‘em—6 possible winning combinations along with a tripling wild symbol.
One wild symbol=3X jackpot while 2=9X jackpot payout and 3=the top jackpot of 5000 credits. Added to these generous features is a Spin Wheel symbol on the third reel. Rewards range from 25 coins to 1000 coins; however, the top three wheel hits of 250, 500 and 1000 coins also award an extra spot on the wheel.
The top progressive jackpot is yours if you get 3 wheel re-spins. Make a side-bet and you go directly to the 4th reel that displays six die symbols resulting in extra credits and/or a mystery jackpot. Wheels, Reels and Winners make this slot choice a Hot adventure.

4) Vacation Day Payoff
David Gene Aston, a warehouse worker from St. Louis, MO decided to use a vacation day to visit the Ameristar Casino in St. Charles, MO.
After an $842,445 win at a Wheel of Fortune quarter MegaJackpot, the started winner declared,
“I could not believe it. I really like the Wheel of Fortune game, but the machine I usually play was occupied. When the jackpot hit, I just could not believe it was real.”
Future plans include paying some bills and house repairs, but no retirement plans.

5) A Simple Strategy
Ronald Peterson of Laguna Niguel, CA utilized a simple strategy when playing the slots—go with what you know.
He says, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” and chose a Wheel of Fortune dollar slot machine that had paid previously. After playing only $34. at Harrah’s Rincon Casino, he struck for the $347,980. Megajackpot.
“I thought I won $4000 and when they told me the real amount, I was stunned.” Peterson plans to keep on working and invest his winnings.

Winners Slots Reviews: April 22
1) Mystic Pearls: the ocean is the theme for this slot offering 3 free spin rounds with the Pearl Diver designated wild.
One free spin round, Mixed Pearls Free Spins is activated by a mix of black and white pearl symbols where all jackpots are doubled. Another bonus occurs when three or more white pearl symbols appear activating 15 to 50 free spins.
Lastly, three black pearls on the first three reels begin a free spin round on a separate set of bonus reels at the top screen.
Free spins present a special wild feature whereupon a black pearl landing on the reels during a free spin includes nearby symbols to determine payouts.
With these many options and free spins, this slot game can bring on ‘an ocean of cash’.

2) Polynesian Pearl: Another ‘slot pearl’ to be explored presents 243 ways to win on each spin and a wild pearl symbol that subs for all symbols. The exception is the red gem that is the designated
symbol to activate the free spin bonus.
This free spin bonus event is where special features come into play for this slot.
During the initial round of 15 free spins after lining up 3 red gems, the appearance of the wild pearl triggers the Sliding Wild symbol feature. This feature determines the payout and then slides down one position in the window. Based on the new position, payouts are calculated to include extra credits earned.
The excitement and credits mount should re-triggering occur during the free spin round, especially when you find the ‘gem of the game’—the wild pearl.

3) Hot Hot Super Jackpot Multi Game: You can raise the stakes with this slot by making an extra side bet for each spin, thereby placing the game in Hot Hot Mode. For example, Loose Diamonds, one of the game top jackpots, is raised from 1000 credits x line bet to 1500 credits x line bet. While Triple Golden Cherries jackpot moves up from 3000 to 5000.
That’s not all. Hot Hot Mode side bet increases the opportunities for activating the bonus plus extra free spins. Example: 5 free spins goes up to 10 free spins accompanied by a 3X multiplier.
Here is a menu of the multigames presented: Loose Diamonds features a variable multiplying wild symbol that pay 2X, 3X or 5X for winning combos. Triple Golden Cherries has multiplying wild symbols. Diamonds of Dublin offers double wild symbols and Shamrock Wilds has an expanding flaming 7 that increases payouts.
With 4 games to play, this slot is indeed Hot Hot Hot Hot!

4) A Day Tripper Takes It
Julie Partacz, 59, from Oak Lawn, IL visits Isle of Capri, Bettendorf, IA with her group, known as the Day Trippers twice a year. 
The bank manager struck for $407,840. at a quarter Wheel of Fortune. Partacz bet only $30 after a friend offered a seat at the slot as she had to leave.
“I love Wheel of Fortune and have won on it before; I did not realize how much I won this time. I’m still stunned by the amount.”

5) A 2 Fer in Arizona
Debra Adams, a housewife from Glendale, AZ bet about $100 at a dollar Wheel of Fortune slot and came away with $363,352. Her first reaction was, “It will help pay our taxes.”
Casino Arizona 101 now boasts two wins in a 2-week period. Before the Adams payout, a Canton, OH man in town for business and visiting the casino to play poker, struck for gold with a $1.1 million Megajackpot at the same group of slots. His explanation for choosing a particular machine was, “it just caught his eye”.

Winners Slots Reviews: April 15
1) Hot Hot Super Respin: this slot employs stacked symbols that fill the entire reel when lined up along with 3 stacked wild symbols on each of the other reels. Additionally, when the top jackpot symbols land on the first reel, it locks in place and all of the remaining reels re-spin twice for more top jackpot opportunities.
Should the top jackpot symbols land on the payline during the trigger spin or the first re-spin, that reel locks into place for the remaining re-spins. The base games that offer a free spin bonus round with the stacked feature are Egypt, Knights & Dragons plus China Moon.
This game is designed to offer many chances at ‘stacks of cash’.

2) Indiana Jones-The Last Crusade: exciting graphics is the norm for this game that is a 40-line slot offering Megajackpots and of course Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones along with planes and snakes.
Three bonus symbols launch a bonus round on the top box whereupon spinning the wheel, the award values are lit up including a multiplier. The final payout is determined by the combination of the wheel spin, multiplier and line bet. The game is loaded with 88 clips and a selection is played just for you after each bonus round.
Fans of Indy and players who hate snakes but love megajackpots are sure to play this game.

3) Poppit! is a simple slot theme—pop those floating balloons and win a prize!
Start popping with a touch of the screen when 3 game ticket symbols line up for the Balloon Pop Bonus event. The goal is to ‘pick and pop’ like-colored balloons that reveal bonus credits via floating gift boxes.
The fun is over in one of two ways. Either there are no like-colored floaters left to view or all balloons have been ‘picked and popped.’ Additionally, line up 3 or more Jackpot Spinner symbols, then spin for a reward of 2-400 x total credits bet.
Lastly, 5 Jackpot symbols yield the top ‘pick-pop’ prize of 5000 credits x line bet.

4) Let’s Salute This Jackpot Win
Eric William Berard of San Antonio, TX and in the US Army has reason to celebrate his 38th birthday. Following a string of wins at McCarran Airport, Las Vegas, Berard hit for $1,425,013. at a Wheel dollar slot.
“I had tried other machines, but after only about five minutes, I won,” he said. “At first there were no bells or sounds, but the symbols came up on the machine and that’s when it started.”
He hopes to pay some bills, retire from the Army and then will see where life takes him.

5) A Prayer followed by a Church Donation
Ronald D Baney, a 63-year-old machinist from Machesney Pk. IL has a favorite slot – the popular Wheel of Fortune - and that’s his focus during his annual visits to Vegas.

Winners Slots Reviews: April 8

1) African Storm: Yes, the wild cheetah symbol is wild and all wins are awarded as scatter pays, but the free spin round is the special feature for this themed slot.
An elephant, a rhino, a gnu, a flamingo and a giraffe are the five jackpot symbols displayed in the top box. The elephant and rhino pay for 2 or more adjacent reels, while the other 3 animals pay for three or more. During the free spin, winning combinations are multiplied by a higher number each time they are displayed. 
Thus, three or more scattered tree symbols trigger 10 free spins while each of the 5 symbols mentioned above pays at 1X the first time, 2X the second time, etc.
If you can ‘weather the storm’, the longer the free spin round (and possibe re-triggering) lasts, the higher the mountain of credits grows.

2) Bruce Lee: Remembering the popular martial arts film star, this slot version offers three features: Water Progressive, Fire Progressive and Earth Progressive and a jackpot that resets at $100,000.
When a Bruce Lee wild symbol lands on the third reel in a winning combo, Bruce appears to show off his martial kicks while a fiery background displays a multiplier of 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X or 10X.
The Bruce Lee Star Bonus begins with the appearance of five gold stars for your selection revealing either credits or a progressive win.
Additionally, the Fury of Free Spins Bonus occurs when a wild symbol expands to cover the total reel area. You then select from a group of gold Ying/Yang icons to reveal a number of free spins. During free spins the progressives, Star Bonus and Strike Feature are up for grabs. This slot offers more than ‘kicks’ from this famous star.

3) King Kong Cash/Crimson Fire: We return to the classic film, but with modern-day features of 50 paylines, free spins and a mystery bonus that can offer a free entry into the King Kong Cash Bonus.
For 3 scattered chest symbols, you receive 10 free games that include a wild moon symbol resulting in extra credits and additional free games.
Start up the King Kong Cash event when the letters KKC appear at the middle reels at which time you pick one of 3 film clips to receive 5, 7 or 10 free games.
You will see that as your credits rise, so too, does the progressive jackpot. Watch for ‘King Kong’ size jackpots with this exciting game.

4) A Day Off to Play My Favorite Slot
Denise Brown of Bloomfield, CT set off for Mohegan Sun Casino to play her favorite Wheel slot on her day off and landed a $1.6 million Wheel of Fortune Special Edition MegaJackpot.
Brown explains her good fortune. “I always play that same machine, it’s my favorite; I had just won $500 and was continuing to play.
I asked the attendant previously how you win the jackpot, so I knew I won.”
The health care provider will continue to work--“I love taking care of my patients.”, however a new condominium is her goal.

5) First Trip and $20.
Shane Nelson of  LaCrosse, WI was visiting Vegas for the first time at a company convention. A Wheel of Fortune, quarter machine at the Luxor caught his attention and a bet of $20 was made. A small bet turned into a Megajackpot win of  $233,422.
The shocked winner said, “It took a moment to set in.” “When I looked at the symbols and then at the machine, I said, “I hit it!”
