The Accumulator is one of the most famous slot tournaments available anywhere online today and it is an event which you can sign up for at most of today’s Microgaming powered casinos. The latest Accumulator slot tourney is currently underway at Crazy Vegas Casino and this casino happens to be one of our favourite Microgaming powered casinos.
This latest extended slot tourney at Crazy Vegas Casino started on May 1st, which means that it is now half way through. You still have plenty of time to make it in to a paid position as this event is scheduled to run right up until the end of May 31st. A spokesperson for the casino, Harry Von Schlussel, said “This is a mammoth tournament in the sense that the more people who play and depending on how often they play, the more they can win at the end of the tournament.”
He finished by saying “It’s an amazing opportunity for those players who enjoy playing our video slots and who put a lot in and expect a lot out. We can’t wait to announce the 25 winners of the prize pool.” These exact words came from an official Crazy Vegas Online Casino press release.
As soon as the prize pool reached its target of $/€/£500 it continued to grow and it has now climbed to more than $/€/£4,400. Basically all re-buys and continues automatically contribute towards the main pot, so start playing today for your chance to win a share of this massive prize pool. You can only sign up for this event from within the downloadable version of the casino and NOT when playing instantly in your browser over Microgaming’s Flash casino platform. The Accumulator slot tourney is also NOT for mobile users.
If you don’t fancy taking part in this tourney, why not check out some of the other events that you can also sign up for such as the Midweek Moolah, the Weekend Whopper, the Monthly Monster, All Day Extender’s, All Day Reloader’s, Survivor Tournaments, Freerolls, Weekly One Shots and much more. If you sign up to Crazy Vegas Casino today you can also claim up to $/€/£500 from the new player welcome bonus. This bonus cash can be claimed over your first five deposits or you can claim it all in one go on your first ever deposit.
Crazy Vegas Casino is owned and operated by Vegas Partner Lounge, which also controls Maple Casino, Casino-Mate, 777 Dragon Casino and Golden Riviera Casino. All of these casinos are powered entirely by Microgaming software, they are all licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and they are all certified by an internationally accredited online casino testing agency called eCOGRA.

Betsoft Gaming has released another stunning 3D slot machine with captivating animations and enchanting sound effects. The new Pinocchio slot from Betsoft Gaming officially arrived in casinos in March 2015 and it can now be found in most Betsoft Gaming powered online casinos. This is a non-downloadable slot which has 5 reels and 15 winning paylines.
There is so much happening on this slot, so the best thing to suggest when playing on this new 3D slot for the first time would be to head straight to the paytable. You can play on this slot in the real money mode and in the free play mode, so you may even want to give it a few spins in the free play mode until you get used to the different symbols and special features etc.
You can play in three different worlds on this immersive new slot and they include Gepetto’s Workshop (primary world), The Puppet Show and Pinocchio’s Classroom (both secondary worlds). You can also unlock special features with the Real Boy Mode and there are three different Scatter Symbols to keep an eye out for on this slot.
Gepetto is a Scatter Symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5. The Books Symbol and the Wagon Symbols are also both Scatter Symbols which will only ever show up on reels 1, 3 and 5. When three of the SAME Scatter Symbols land on these three reels, the Wild Scrolls Feature will trigger, or when one of the Gepetto Symbols lands on the centre reel. Once triggered, Re-Spins will be awarded and these can help generate new winning combinations.
This game may sound quite complex when reading through the paytable, but it should only take a couple of spins to get used to. In fact, the paytable makes it seem more confusing than the game actually is so you might just want to jump straight in to the real money mode. Although this new slot is still not yet widely available, it should continue to arrive in even more Betsoft Gaming powered casinos over the coming weeks.
If you enjoy playing on this new Betsoft slot machine, you may also want to check out some of their other most recently released 3D slots, some of which include Mega Gems, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, Fruit Zen, Gypsy Rose, More Gold Diggin’ and Good Girl Bad Girl. Some of their other most famous titles include The True Sheriff, Greedy Goblins, Who Spun It (aka WhoSpunIt), at the Copa, Boomanji, Under the Bed, Safari Sam, After Night Falls, Rook’s Revenge, It Came from Venus and Gladiator.

For anyone who has ever visited a Live Dealer Casino before which is powered by Microgaming software, you will have noticed that Live Casino Hold’em has never been available, until now that is! In February 2015, Microgaming added Live Casino Hold’em to its impressive live dealer casino platform which means that you can now find four different live dealer casino games from Microgaming.
The main live dealer casino games available now in a growing number of Microgaming powered live dealer casinos include Live Blackjack, Live Roulette, Live Baccarat and Live Casino Hold’em. Don’t forget that you can choose between regular live dealers and playboy bunny live dealers and you can also now find multiplayer games such as Multiplayer Baccarat, Multiplayer Roulette and Multiplayer Blackjack.
Unfortunately though at the time of writing, the Live Casino Hold’em tables are only available in the ‘regular’ live dealer casino and not within the playboy bunny live dealer casino. You can launch Microgaming’s live dealer casino either instantly in your browser or from within the Microgaming download client and you can now find this latest live dealer game at several top-rated Microgaming powered casinos such as Betway Casino.
When you visit your favourite participating Microgaming casino, just look for the live dealer casino button. When you click on this button you will automatically be redirected to the live dealer casino lobby. If Live Casino Hold’em is not yet available, it should be added over the new few weeks at the very latest. The live dealer games at any Microgaming powered casino are only available in the real money mode, so you'll need to start by making a deposit of at least $/€/£20 to begin with.
This stunning new live dealer game is streamed directly to your computer from a perfectly secure location and to really get the most out of your experience, we recommend playing this game with the sounds turned on and in the full screen mode. This game is really easy to play, but it does help to have a little bit of knowledge about the many different winning poker hands. You only have to try and beat the dealer (not any other players) and the table limits cater for low rollers, mid-rollers and high rollers.
All you need to do is click on your preferred table limits and the table will launch straight away. Use the chips at the bottom of the table to place a bet and remember to try and place a bet before the timer reaches zero. You have plenty of adjustable settings and you can also view the game history and other games stats. If you want to play on Live Casino Hold’em from Microgaming, head over to Betway Casino today. You can claim up to $/€/£1,000 when you open a new account here.
