It's been a while since my last seasonal review, but there has been so much going on in the gaming industry that it's been difficult to soak it all in for one good review. So for this particular article, I'll focus on the industry's most popular games that I'm sure you'll find in you favorites lists when you make it for that weekend trip to the casino. Here's a brief rundown of some of the newest and hottest winners from some of the most popular manufacturers.

IGT has no doubt been the continuing success story in ever evolving gaming. The quality of the games just keeps getting better and better with each new release. For example, the stacked wilds machines have more innovative and wonderful gaming dynamics that attracted me. Games such as Fire Horse and Magical Unicorn are the newest releases that have a different touch to video slot play. There's plenty of free spins triggered with five free play symbols scattered across all five reels. And huge wins are possible with the integration of stacked wild symbols in the middle three reels. Additionally, you'll go bonkers with the right to left and left to right paying integration. I've personally won and beared witness to huge, hundreds of dollar wins with only a minimum bet initiated. Other scorching new releases with enhanced game play include Snapdragon, Jolly Roger (Progressive type Gaming), Michaelangelo (similar to Davinci Diamonds), and Cats. In Conclusion, try out all of these exciting new offers from IGT, you'll win tons with the minimal betting sequences.

Another gaming company is continuing to find niche gaming dynamics with it's re-spin focus, and that company is WMS gaming. The newest offering from WMS include Zeus, Griffin's Gate, and Hearts of Venice. Land a full stacked symbols in the first reel, and you'll earn three more spins while that first reel is locked. Giving players a chance to stack up more of the marquee symbols to hoard in huge wins. Probably the best feature I've come across in a while and the most fun to play with when you trigger these free spins. And you don't have to bet a lot, so for the frugal gamers out there, give it a try next time you see one in the casino.

And finally, Aristocrat is keeping the "pokies" market alive with popular and evolving games. Those old hits like sun and moon, 50 lions, and Easter Island are still filling seats at the casinos. And new hits like 100 lions, Easter Island II, and Dragons are grabbing the attention of players as they long for fun alternatives to that IGT gauntlet. Look for more new hits to come in the next year, Aristocrat isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

And one last game I tried out was the new mystery progressives Indiana Jones slots. I actually had a lot of fun playing this game and came out a big winner on the few times I played it. Similar to the eBay slots of IGT, the mystery progressives trigger for all players playing that same machine. You'll have a chance to hit some huge stacked wild hits on the 10 free spins and have a chance to win one of the multi level progressives.

People play bingo for a variety of reasons. The biggest reason for playing the game is that it is fun. If players didn’t find bingo playing a pleasurable experience, they wouldn’t waste their time and money playing the game. Players win at bingo through luck and chance, and not through any kind of playing skill. There is no strategy or way of playing that can increase the player’s chances of winning which is why the game is not mentally demanding on the player.
Playing bingo in a land-based bingo hall is a rote, mechanical experience. The caller calls the numbers, the players check their cards and mark the numbers. Players establish a rhythm that is therapeutic and relaxing for them. They can sit and talk with the players around them and meet new people, while the game is in progress. Many friendships form in this way.
Online bingo playing tends to be automatic since players set the software to auto daub the numbers. This means that they don’t have to check the cards and mark the numbers or even signal a bingo, when one is made. The software will do all of this for them. This is also rather therapeutic to watch for a while. Since the software is doing all of the work, players can do other things while the game is in progress. They can take part in the chat room activities or they can play side games while they remain on the page with their bingo cards.
Side games, like slots, casino games, instant games, video poker, and others, keep the player busy while the bingo game is taking place. They broaden the player’s ability to win and add additional excitement to the online playing experience. Some sites offer free side games and free bingo.
Another part of the online bingo playing experience is the specials and promotions offered at the site. There are many online bingo offers that the player can take advantage of since most sites offer specials and promotions of one kind or another. There is also the opportunity to benefit from online bingo bonuses. Players should never pass up these kinds of opportunities because they are a form of free money to the player. These may be in the form of credits to the wagering account or cash or merchandise prizes. Players should read the Terms and Conditions to learn the rules that apply.
