Day 18 - Double Bonus Poker

Video Poker. Feels like a real flash back to the poker machines I used to play as a teenager in the 80´s. And sure, they still look the same. Simple, minimal design and sound effects as if it was 30 years old standing in a basement. What more can you demand?

I choose a game called Double Bonus Poker and start playing. The smallest stake is €0,25 per coin and I bet the maximum amount of 5 coins to have a shot at the biggest win which is 4000 coins if you hit a Royal Flush.

To win you need at least a pair of Jacks. It is ordinary poker hands that pay and you will see the full pay table when you play. After each win you have the opportunity to gamble or collect your money. I am trying a few too many times to double my wins and I am now down at €258.

Ohh, i miss a Royal Flush with only one card. I hit J-A of hearts but miss the ten of hearts. The game moves really quickly and if you want you can play hundreds of hands per hour. Time for a nice win soon, the bank roll is moving down slowly.

There we go, I hit a full house and click collect. I don’t want to gamble that win. It takes me back to €265, almost back where I started. I have to say that there is a lot of action playing Video Poker. A few more minutes, then I’ll end today´s session.

Now I get 6, 7, 9, T of hearts and I hold the cards of course. 8 of hearts would win me 250 coins. I miss the straight flush but hit the flush, and I am back at €270.

I forgot to tell you about the opportunity to hold any cards after the initial round. The game proposes which cards you should hold but you can of course set it manually. To hold a single A does not feel too exciting.

I have some luck with my gambles towards the end and I close the game down with a bank roll of €268. I can live with the €2 loss.

I have not played the other Video Poker games at Videoslots.com, but at a first glance they all look the same. I’ll have a re-match on those later on. The coming days I will play through all our different categories, Blackjack, Slots, Videoslots, Roulette, Scratch Cards and Other Games. Some variation is always nice.

Good luck trying our Video Poker, and play responsibly.

Day 67 - Lucky Darts

Hmm, this is a new experience. I just a made a deposit of €10. Will this be the start of a new record series, or will it take more deposits? We´ll see. Today I will try a Slot called Lucky Darts. It is a first.

Day 66 - Gift Rap

After yesterday´s long review and a tough Stockholm Marathon, I am going to keep today´s Game Of The Day short. I am playing a Video Slot called Gift Rap. I have seen it flashing by a couple of times but never tried it. €32 on the bank roll.

Day 65 - Dino Might

Well, things are moving fast in the write-about-casino-games-business. Is that really a job anyway? In a few days I have gone from €2,50 up to €160, down to €14 and back to €40. You never know what to expect, and I guess that is a part of the exciting casino world. Wins, dreams, losses, frustration, excitement and fun. But most of all, DREAMS, if you ask me.

Day 64 - Cashapillar

Back at €160. Nice. Burning Desire was my kind of game. I have been looking at a Video Slot called Cashapillar for a while, but since the minimum bet is €1 to play all 100 lines, I have not been able to play it with my small bank roll. Now it is time though.

Day 63 - Burning Desire

As you have seen I am back as a winner. A couple of days with Videoslots and I started winning again. Isn´t it strange? Or not. After yesterdays session, playing Stash Of The Titans, I am now back at a bit more secure bankroll level of €60. Nice. Today I am going for yet another Videoslot called Burning Desire.

Day 62 - Stash Of The Titans

Ok, here we go again. I´ll stick with Video Slots since it seems like I am winning on those. One of Videoslots.com´s latest addition is Stash Of The Titans. It is brand new and there is not even a text description on the web site. So, here´s a review from a Mike-perspective.

Day 61 - Centre Court

Back to Video Slots. Have you seen the pattern? I build my bank roll with Video Slots and then lose it on the other games, especially Slots. Today I will play a Video Slot called Centre Court. It is a tennis themed game with 9 paylines. Time for revenge.

Day 60 - Gold Mine

Time for a Slot, can´t play Video Slots every day. We do have other games as well. I find a Slot called Gold Mine that seems to have a special feature I have not seen before. Unfortunately I have a losing history on the Slots, but the luck has to change at some point. Is it in today´s game? Here we go.

Day 59 - Asian Beauty

Yesterday I went with a friend to the only casino in town (the only legal one anyway) to play some poker. After busting my predetermined bankroll I hang around for a while on the casino floor, watching the crazy whales betting thousands per number on the roulette. Of course I also had to try some Video Slots, but they were not even close to ours when it comes to design and feel. And I did not win anything either. I´ll stick with Videoslots.com instead.

Day 58 - Dogfather

More Video Slots. I Love them. A bit more now that I am on safe grounds with my bank roll. I saw in the Winning Now-list that someone was winning big on a Video Slot called Dogfather. Inspired by The Godfather, this game includes mafia characters in the shape of dogs. Time for Mike to try it out.
