You can come and live in my attic if you like!
Already has a PC connected to the net in there, and if you're any good at baby-sitting it will be rent-free! :thumbsup:

I tried Jackpot Party over the last 2 days; only played 2 slots so far;
Zeus: I was expecting to be very hard to hit the free-spins since they contain stacked top symbols AND stacked wilds (just like Deck the Halls), but actually I got them on just my 5th spin, and a total of 6 times in my first 228 spins.
My best win was bet x 76 (due to the big hit below), the worst bet x 8.
After the 228 spins and my 6th feature, the slot totally died for the next 80 spins and I lost £64 in £108 of wagers.
Still left it with £34 profit, but could have been better.

Star Trek - Red Alert: I chose this because a lot of people seems to be winning on it (there is a "winner" announcement at the side of the screen - similar you what NetEnt have).
I was expecting this to be similar to Zeus and so bet quite big... BIG mistake!
I played 226 spins, got 5 Win-Warp features and 2 lots of free-spins, but STILL lost £133 in £312 of wagering = RTP of 57%! :eek:
Entertaining features - but at a high price!

What I can't quite decide is what type of slots these are; I'm pretty sure they're not AWPs, and also pretty sure they're not true random slots either (FAR too many stacked symbols appearing on Zeus for that), so I reckon they work the same as the big slots in UK arcades & casinos and are basically "bingo" machines.
Is that good or bad? I really don't know!

I played Zeus in Vegas. I think it is a true video slot with pretty long reel strips. You can see some stacked wilds or top symbols all the time, you just can't get them together in the right place at the same time :)

Anyone know a house for rent/sale in the UK?

Anything with an internetconnection and central heating will do.

Enough space for a PC, keyboard, monitor, my 3-legged cat and a microwave.

Price can be negotiated. Thanks in advance!:thumbsup:

LUCKY BASTARDS!!! :p

We actually got (or at least had) a lot of these in Holland Casino... In most of them you even got the Jackpot Party (Utrecht - €0,02 slots)!

You don't even pay for the heating :p

i recall playing a slot named jackpot party at a b&m casino.the feature was randomly triggered and once i got to the 4th tier. didnt pay that much but it was fun.

In Holland Casino the Jackpot Party feature is triggered by a "scattersymbol" on the 5th reel. You get a bonusgame in which you can get stars for the 1th, 2nd, 3rd or 4th tier. If you get no stars you still get credits for the bonusgame itself, in which you can choose "boxes" with credits.

a little update

Hello again folks,

A brief update. I've been playing there a fair bit over the last few days and have noticed:

1) Fast cashouts (meaning the no-flush clause is less of a problem).
2) The slow spins issue seems to be improved a lot.
3) STILL waiting for a go on the progressive :p I'll get there eventually.

Overall, I am definitely impressed: the games are fun, the cashouts are fast and the CS is very solid. In short, the whole thing feels like a quality operation. It'll be interesting to see how/when they add new slots too. I'm a bit disheartened with the "latest" MG slots often being clones.

I was thinking the same also the way they play out. Possibly closer to the land based slots. Was checking the game %s which they do show on the last page of the pay table for each slot, some are as low as 92% with a few more % for the site wide RJS. Star Trek I was winning alot then it suddenly died - same with Wizard of Oz but really intersting games and visually superb.

Maybe VWM can step in as he seems the AWP master ;) ?

Just got the shot at the progressive!

And BLOODY GOSH it was exciting! I only won the confetti jackpot (lowest one - £30 ish) but I also got about £70 off the party picks. Not bad considering I was betting 50p. And great to know that you can actually get a shot from that betsize (take note low-rolling fans :)).

There's no scatter symbol or anything - it just pops up and off you go. Awesome feature :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

And now...CASHOUT TIME.

Happy weekend all.

I am on a 3 uk mobile Modem and Grace has just informed me that they don't accept UK players using mobile modems. A bit mystified to be honest.

It's may be more a question of don't "support" them as the graphics and interface is pretty intensive on processing. Unless there is some thinking that "mobile" potentially means it could be a non-UK IP address. WMS are pretty strict on this because of the need to ensure their land-based licenses don't get jeopardised.

I think its the latter. I can play fine at every other casino. My ip address points to Chorley in Lancashire so I don't really see the problem to be honest.

If you guys are impressed with what you folks have available to you now. For slot selection wait until you see some of the stuff I'm playing right in our US Land Based casinos. Over here WMS has a major influence in the illinois area and has a wide variety of slots, with different games, different atmopsheres, and different payout schemes. So hopefully this is something there working up to in the US for whenever we do finally decide to allow online gaming.
Right now my favorite has to be Monopoly Bigger Event. Just because that machine tells you when the system is trying for a big event, whether you get into or not. One of those neat community gaming ordeals.
I agree though, I should move to the UK to play this.

Hello all,

Spent much of this weekend trying out Jackpot Party – a mixed but good experience so far. I deposited £75 and it went up to £300 pretty fast and then right down to £20 before I got it back up again. Eventually made the wagering requirement (20x I think) and withdrew £225, leaving myself with £75 to play with.

Or to lose as it happens.:rolleyes:

So, some thoughts; firstly, the good. The games are GREAT. Really fun, quite different, some inventive features, good music and what seems to be a range of variance. They really reminded me of Vegas and I’ve played some of them there before. I especially liked Platea and Riches of the Amazon. Really enjoyed the bonus rounds on both.:p

Secondly, the Jackpot Party progressive feature. This is basically a randomly triggered site-wide feature where you can win one of a bunch of tiered jackpots, from like £30 up to about 10k. No, I didn’t get a go on it but I have had several on the one in Vegas and it is about as exciting as it gets. I’d be really interested to hear from anyone who has gotten it online – was it triggered by a special symbol? How much did you win? If this is you then please do let us know. It would be good to hear. Just having the feature on there is pretty exciting I think. It’s also presented quite slickly in that you can hover your mouse over the different tiers and see when they were last won and how many people have won each tier etc. Best of all though, was the info from Michael, the customer service rep:


[11:30:23 PM] ME: Do you have any idea if the amount you wager on a single spin increases your chances of getting a shot at it?
[11:31:02 PM] Michael: The amount of your wager does not effect your chances of triggering the Progressive.
[11:31:23 PM] ME: So you could actually win 10k off a 50p bet??!
[11:31:33 PM] Michael: That's correct.
[11:31:47 PM] Michael: Any stake any time.



I wonder if this means you could play 1 line and still trigger it? Thoughts welcome.

The final piece of good news is the CS. Fast, efficient and easy to communicate with. I received an email saying my cashout was processed this morning too so I’ll post an update when it hits my bank. If these guys pay fast too then they’ll be seeing more of my moolah.

Now the not so good news: Firstly, no flushing withdrawals. That’s not great in itself but to their credit this is explained clearly and honestly right in the FAQs:

Can I flush my withdrawal?
Published 11/19/2010 02:21 PM | Updated 01/10/2011 10:32 AM
No. Flushing a withdrawal simply removes the request from pending state without cancelling it; however will not speed up the withdrawal process. Withdrawals must be cancelled if you wish to make another deposit. Alternatively, you will need to wait till the withdrawal has been processed
The irritant here for me is this part: Withdrawals must be cancelled if you wish to make another deposit. Alternatively, you will need to wait till the withdrawal has been processed.


That’s annoying for obvious reasons. On the other hand if they always process quickly then I guess it’s not so bad.

No so good news part 2 – slooooooooooooooooooooooooow spins. This seemed worse during my second session which was late on sat night – perhaps that had something to do with it as I’d imagine that lots of UK players are on at that time. I found repeatedly that when I hit spin there was a delay while my balance was recalculated and adjusted. I counted a few of these and they ranged from 10 to 30 seconds. This isn’t a major gripe for me as anything which helps me to slow down when I’m playing is a good thing overall. I can imagine it would irritate some players a lot though. While this does happen with some of the other no download casinos I’ve played on it was noticeably worse here. Hardly ever happens at Boyle and only occasionally at Victor Chandler. If there’s a rep on here perhaps they could shed some light on how/why this happens and when/if it will be fixed?

Part 3 – slow loading times. Not ages, but takes a while. A very minor gripe, this.

I think that’s all for now and look forward to hearing of anyone else’s experiences.

All the best folks.


UPDATE: Just had another look on their site and clicked on the progressive video preview. Next to it, it says: THE MORE YOU BET, THE BETTER YOUR CHANCES OF TRIGGERING RANDOM JACKPOTS ON YOUR FAVORITE GAMES. This seems to contradict what I was told by CS. Is there a rep who can clear this up for me?


Have to try this one out. First time for this. Saying that it is a great place. :D I expect a lot from this Jackpot Party

They just released Bruce Lee (
You do not have permission to view link Log in or register now.
for those who can't play it) but it's very different to the land-based version. game Of Dragons seems to be the land-based version while the new Bruce Lee is a brand-new slot but it is pretty damn good. Or did I just miss this format in Vegas?

You can get 20 free spins on this one too with stacked wilds with a certain type of trigger! :D

Spearmaster loved the land-based version of this game :)

Very impressed with this casino.
Played the Wizard of Oz game - a fairy godmother thing flew into the reels and gave me 3 expanded wilds. Won £110 from a 60p stake.
I cashed out a hundred and its back in my Neteller account in less than one hour.

a fairy godmother thing...

LOL :lolup:

I didn't realise this version of WoO had that until I played it at JP. I only ever played the 3D version in Vegas (Glinda the 'Good Witch')

Its a bit like the Wildstorm in TSII, but, unlike that sh*tstorm, this feauture also seems to pay if you get less than 5 reels wild!:D
