Day 6 - Retro Reels Diamond

After having browsed through the games here at Videoslots.com I find something very interesting in the category slots. Retro Reels Diamond Glitz. Stylish design, looks new and fresh and it has a new feature called "Respin". I have to try it.

I bring my €10 into the game and see that I have a fantastically wide bet range to choose from. First of all, I can set the value of my coins, and I can choose from €0.01 up to €0.25. Then I set the number of lines I want to play, between 1-25. Finally I decide how many coins I want to bet, between 1-20. This gives a minimum bet of €0.01 and a max bet of €125! I guess this would be a good time to welcome our whales.

Just like in my favorite game, Mega Moolah, it seems that one should chase the Free Spins in Retro Reels Diamond Glitz (why such a long name?). The jackpot, which is constant and not progressive, is at 440 000 coins. It must be mine.

So, what´s todays betting strategy? Since I like to cover many winning options I choose to bet all 25 lines. And since I don't have the bank roll of a whale I put the coin size and number of coins to the lowest possible. Each spin now costs €0.25 and I get a lot of play for my money. And of course I'm hoping for a big win.

This was really fun! Hits a winner directly giving a win of €0.50 and now I get what “Respin” is. Instead of spinning all five wheels again I can choose to spin one of the wheels, whenever I want. The wheels cost differently to spin, depending on the possible winning amounts. Yeah, yeah, you will get it when you try it yourself.

Now, I will play until the half hour has passed, or until I am out of money, without describing every single spin. Cross your fingers, and hope to…win.

I win again today! I leave Retro Reels DG (I have shortened the long name as you can see), with €33.74. What did I like about the game then? Stylish and modern, perhaps the symbols are a bit too much alike, which initially made it difficult to see what I won. But I got used to it and towards the end of the half hour that was not an issue anymore. I never managed to get into the Free Spins, so I look forward to that next time.

The Respins feature is great fun. It offers you, the player, to do tactical moves and it adds a real boost to the game. Try it!

I quit playing after 30 minutes. Responsible as usual.

Day 7 - Classic Blackjack

Now it's time for some classic blackjack. The game I am about to play is called Classic Blackjack and it is included in Videoslots special "Gold Series", which means that it belongs to an exclusive group of games that have that little extra.

Fifth game - Premier Roulette Diamond

Roulette! Now it's time for my absolute favorite. The game that has fascinated and engaged millions of people since it was first introduced sometime in the 1800s. Stories about roulette abound. Do you remember the Swede who sold everything he had and went to Vegas to put everything on red? He won a million if I remember correctly.

Day four - Fruit Fiesta

A beautiful winter day outside. Too bad it is supposed to be spring. Before I put on my winter jacket, hat and gloves, I thought I´d play the game of the day. Today I have some revenge lust and I let the most obvious game to be my choice. Fruit Fiesta. A more classic video slot, is hard to find.

Game three - Major Millions

Here we go again. I was going to play today's game in peace and quiet this morning, but today is Sunday which means family time, and with two small boys who need their attention, it's been busy all day. Now, at half past nine in the evening, the computer is finally up and running.

Day two - Thunderstruck II

Today I challenge my, until now, most unfortunate game Thunderstruck II. It is hugely popular among casino players and there must be a good reason for that, therefore I'll give it another chance. I do not think I understand the game's different winning features and thus have become a bit hostile. Now it is the time to learn.

First game- Mega Moolah

Ok, here we go. It is time for the first game and I've decided to start with my own favorite here at Videoslots.com, Mega Moolah. With a constantly growing jackpot, which is always at least one million Euro, I just have to play this game every once in a while.

One game a day

After being a part of the development of Videoslots.com, I felt I did not want to end my involvement there. So, my plan now is to play one game a day starting tomorrow. Write about the outcome, say a few words about my personal opinion of the game, its quality and the gaming experience. Whether I liked it or not.
