There’s a brand new online slot available right now over at Jackpot Party Casino (JakcpotParty.com). This is a leading UK online casino which is powered entirely by WMS Gaming software. This brand new slot is the sequel to another great slot from WMS Gaming called Bruce Lee, which was launched way back in 2011.
Bruce Lee (the prequel) is a ‘Money Burst’ slot. It has 60 winning paylines but instead of spending a minimum of 0.60 coins per spin, you get those 60 paylines at half the price which means that you only have to pay a minimum of 0.30 coins per spin.
This new Bruce Lee slot is already being called Bruce Lee 2, but its actual name is Bruce Lee: Dragon’s Tale. This latest version is classed as a ‘Super Multi-Pay’ slot. In other words, you get to play four games at the same time.
When you launch this game, you will notice one much larger set of reels towards the left hand side of the game window and you should also be able to see three smaller sets of the reels on the right hand side of the game window. When you hit the SPIN button, all four sets of reels will spin simultaneously.
The great thing about this slot is that whenever a Wild Symbol (the Bruce Lee Logo) or the Scatter Symbol (the Yin & Yang Symbol) land in any position on the larger set of reels, those exact same symbols will then immediately transfer to the other three sets of reels and they will be transferred to exactly the same positions.
Therefore if the first reel on the larger set of reels is covered with a Stacked Bruce Lee Wild Symbol, that Stacked Wild Symbol will then instantly transfer across to appear on reel 1 on all of the other sets of reels, which means that all four sets of reels now have a stacked reel 1.
This awesome special feature is called the Symbol Transfer Feature and it basically means that you have three more chances of being able to trigger much larger wins and you will also have more chances of being able to trigger the Free Spins Bonus Round.
Most of the time, just one of the sets of reels will trigger the Free Spins bonus round, but occasionally, more than one set of reels trigger the bonus round. The more sets of reels which actually trigger the Free Spins Bonus Round, the larger your multiplier will be during that Free Spin bonus round (up to a maximum 12X) and the more Free Spins you will receive.
This is an exciting new slot from WMS Gaming and it should also start to appear in more WMS Gaming powered casinos over the coming months. It is available in the real money mode and in the free play mode and don’t forget that it can be launched instantly, no download required.

X-Men 50 Lines is a brand new online slot from Playtech. Players can also find a 25 paylined version of this slot, which has been around for a couple of years now, but this new slot with 50 winning paylines is the very latest version. X-Men 50 Lines was launched in November 2013.
There’s so much happening on this slot in terms of action which means that it should keep most players entertained for hours at a time. It’s connected to the Marvel Multi Level Progressive Jackpot, which links more than ten individual branded Marvel slots. It can be launched instantly in your browser plus it can also be found via the Playtech casino download client, however, it is still not yet widely available.
The Wild Symbol is fairly easy to locate on the reels. There is also a Scatter Symbol (the X-Men Logo) and during the Free Spins bonus round, you will also notice additional wilds (Extra Wilds). These two Extra Wild Symbols appear in the Free Games ‘Villain Mode’ and in the Free Games ‘Heroes Mode’ (free games are exactly the same as free spins).
You can also win prizes from the X Feature, which triggers during regular pay when five of the ‘hero’ symbols appear in a certain position on the centre reels to form an ‘X’ symbol. When this happens, you will instantly be awarded 5x times your stake.
Free Spins are triggered when three or more of the X-Men Scatter Symbols land in any position across the reels and the great thing about this bonus round is that you can win Unlimited Free Spins during the Heroes Mode.
The other new slot from Playtech, The Love Boat, is based on the hit 70s/80s TV show. This new slot has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines and players can also win prizes from within a free spins bonus round, which is triggered when three or more of The Love Boat Scatter Symbols appear in view. Huge prizes are up for grabs when this Free Spins bonus round is triggered.
There’s also a second screen bonus round called the Match Up Bonus, which is basically a simple picking round. All you need to do is select two characters (a male and a female) and then wait to see what kind of prize you have won. The other great thing about this new slot is the Dream Cruise Jackpot. Earn tickets for the weekly Dream Cruise Jackpot Draw each time a Dream Cruise Ticket Symbol lands in any position on reel 5 (the reel furthest on the right).
The other new slot from Playtech is called Piggies and the Wolf. This slot has 5 reels and 50 winning paylines and you can win prizes from the second screen bonus game called Blow the House Down Bonus, but also from the Free Spins Bonus Round (with the Pigs Running Wild Feature) and from the ‘on-reels’ Huff ‘n Puff Shuffle Feature.
These new Playtech slots are quite different from one another and they should appeal to a wide audience of gamblers. They are all action & feature packed slots which can now be found in some of the worlds most trusted online casinos.

It has a wide betting range to cater for low roller and high rollers and it is now available in the real money mode and in the free play mode at numerous fully licensed Microgaming powered casinos.
The Wild Symbol is the Racing for Pinks Logo. The other special symbols to keep an eye out for are the Scatter Symbols and the Bonus Symbols, both of which will only ever land on reels 1 and 5 (the two end reels).
When the Bonus Symbols land on reels 1 and 5, the main Bonus Race feature will automatically trigger. This entertaining bonus round takes place on a second screen and it guarantees some kind of prize each time it is triggered.
The aim is to try and pick the correct winner for each race. Each time you win, you will be able to advance to the next level. If you successfully pick all 5 winners from all 5 races, you will win the Grand Prize which is worth up to 175x times your stake.

Each win that occurs during this free spins bonus round will automatically be doubled. Unfortunately, Free Spins CANNOT be retriggered.

Zanzibar is a brand new WMS Gaming slot machine which you can now find over at Jackpot Party Casino. This is a non-downloadable slot which can be launched instantly in your browser over a flash casino platform. It has 5 reels and 30 winning paylines and it is now available in the real cash mode and in the free play demo mode.
The regular Wild Symbol is the Oasis in the Desert Symbol and this will only ever appear on reels 1, 2, 4 and 5 (so never on the middle reel). There is also a slightly larger looking Oasis Symbol which can land on reel 3 and when this does appear (and combines with other symbols to form a line win), it will trigger the Replicating Wild Feature.
Once triggered, this Replicating Wild Symbol will basically turn random symbols on the reels into wild Symbols and this will hopefully generate additional line wins. Although it doesn’t always guarantee a win every time, it does tend to trigger quite often.
The only other special symbol to keep an eye out for is the Sword-wielding Female. This is the Scatter Symbols and when three or more of these appear in any position across the reels, you will instantly be awarded a minimum of 10 Free Spins. If four Scatter Symbols appear, you will win 20 Free Spins and if five Scatter Symbols appear, you will be awarded as many as 40 Free Spins.
Free Spins can also be retriggered and each win that occurs during this bonus round will automatically be multiplied by 2X. The Replicating Wild Feature can also randomly trigger during this Free Spins Bonus Round.
Just like all of the other slot machines at Jackpot Party Casino, this one is also connected to the network-wide Jackpot Party Progressive Jackpot. There are five different accumulating prizes pools up for grabs at any one time and these can be won by any player, at any time and by playing with any stake. There is also an optional double up gamble feature available on this slot.
Zanzibar is a great new online slot from WMS Gaming and if you enjoy playing on this one, you may also want to check out some of the other most recently released slots from this same software provider such as Bier Haus, the Wizard of Oz Wicked Riches, Spartacus – Gladiator of Rome and Vampire’s Embrace, all of which are available now over at Jackpot Party Casino.
