Playing slot machines is actually not hard at all. But before you start there are several things you really should learn, because knowing them can make the process of spinning the reels and pushing the buttons a great deal more fun. We give you the list of the words and word-combinations that you need to know to play online slots smoothly.
A Pay line is an imaginary line that crosses some of the reels or all of them at once (it depends on the type of the game a gambler is playing). They use the Pay lines for calculating the how many coins a player can potentially win. A single pay line is typical for the Classic reels and there can be over twenty pay lines in the newer reels.
The Coins are what they play in the round. Do not miss it with the Denominations (the face value of every coin). Maximum 3 to 5 coins can be played per pay line in most of the casinos.
The House Edge is the percentage of the wagers and bets that will go in casino’s favor as the revenue. The usual house edge for the slot machines is two to eight percent, which means that each dollar that a player spends on the machine brings the casino 2 to 8 percent revenue. The same is true for every spent British Pound and so on. Read more…

The new online slot Frank Miller’s Sin City has been launched at Party Casino, offering 50 pay-lines across 5 reels, wild and 2 scatter symbols, free spins, and multipliers.
The theme is based on the comic title of the same name, authored by comic legend Frank Miller.
Sin City originally appeared in Dark Horse Presents: Fifth Anniversary Special in April 1991, and ever since then Miller’s groundbreaking ‘comics noir’ have found their way into the public consciousness with toys, games, and a feature-length motion picture.
Frank Miller’s Sin City remains one of the most stylised works in the history of the medium, drawing heavily from film noir, including its use of shadow and stark backgrounds. The black-and-white comic was perfectly suited to the original format of Dark Horse’s flagship anthology, with occasional spot usage of primary colours added to later volumes and editions.
“Frank Miller’s Sin City is a very different online slot to any other we have launched in recent times,” said a spokesman for PartyCasino, pointing to the striking artwork and mature content.
There are five featured games, which win the player free spins and multipliers: “Straight to Hell,” “The Hard Goodbye,” “He Never Screams,” “Deadly Little Miho,” and “Just Get Warmed Up.”
The games feature the series’ main characters: Hartigan, Nancy, Miho, Marv, Kevin, the Yellow B*stard, and Dwight. The game includes mature content and scenes of violence, nudity, and deprivation.

The launch of poker pro Phil Ivey’s legal action against online poker provider Tiltware earlier this week has been ridiculed by the defendant company.
In a statement Wednesday, Tiltware came out fighting, asserting:
“Contrary to his sanctimonious public statements, Phil Ivey’s meritless lawsuit is about helping just one player – himself. In an effort to further enrich himself at the expense of others, Mr. Ivey appears to have timed his lawsuit to thwart pending deals with several parties that would put money back in players’ pockets.
“In fact, Mr. Ivey has been invited — and has declined — to take actions that could assist the company in these efforts, including paying back a large sum of money he owes the site.
“Tiltware doubts Mr. Ivey’s frivolous and self-serving lawsuit will ever get to court. But if it does, the company looks forward to presenting facts demonstrating that Mr. Ivey is putting his own narrow financial interests ahead of the players he professes to help.”
At least one issue between the two entities appears to be Tiltware’s refusal to free Ivey from his sponsorship commitments to the company.

The recent raids on Absolute Poker associates in Costa Rica, which are themselves indirectly related to the Black Friday US federal indictments, spawned another law enforcement inquiry over the weekend, when it was revealed that the Costa Rica and Panama judicial authorities are communicating.
The Panama publication Prensa reports that Guillermo Hernández, financial crimes prosecutor in Costa Rica, has confirmed that he is in contact with his opposite number in Panama regarding the activities of Olman Rimola Castillo, a one-time associate of Absolute Poker and reported operator of the company’s call centre in Costa Rica, IDS.
Rimola is alleged to have managed IDS operations that “mobilised” over $50 million, using businesses in Panama to move the funds.
The erstwhile IDS manager is currently restricted to Costa Rica through judicial restraints, but has also worked in Panama, where he at one time reportedly edited publications like The Panama Post, Juego Vivo Sport Magazine and SJO Post.

The multi- year agreement enables Italy’s giant online gambling operator Microgame to deploy Chartwell table games, card games and other online casino content via the company’s Rapid Game Deployment technology.

Fabrizio D’Aloia, president and CEO of Microgame said this week: “We are certain that Chartwell’s popular content will yield great results in Italy thanks to the long and international experience of its team, combined with the market know-how of Microgame and its gaming operators.”
