Jackpot Party is the highly anticipated WMS powered casino that has just come on board. This is a UK based casino that can only take UK based players. Nonetheless, it's trendsetting (in my opinion) where players can open accounts and chock up points via the online games or access their accounts on the machines in land based casinos like in Vegas.

Any thoughts, input, or experiences please post here :D

I am sure that they will expand when country laws surrounding online gambling are crystal clear. WMS aren't prepared to take any risks in non-regulated jurisdictions without proper licensing because their land-based licences are just far too valuable to risk. Same policy as IGT.

It's not THAT big of a deal. I can still play them, just not online :rolleyes:

They have them at Holland casino?

As far as i could see on the frontpage there are familiair pics. For example "Zeus" was on HC Amsterdam a few years ago. Haven't been there for a while though (very bad parking facilities) so maybe they are already replaced.

Funny thing i found out is that in Germany they seem to have some of the HC-slots in the "street" gambling facilities/halls.

Must admit I didn't see them in HC Amsterdam last year - although they did have one of my favourites: Shinobi (not WMS tho). Interesting about Germany - their rep told me they were in several countries including Australia, but not here in the UK (offline anyway).

I wonder how the UK players will take to them being unfamiliar. I hope they try them - some of them are superb. Love Zeus myself although Zeus II and the Hot Hot Super Respin games are even better. Egyptian Riches I like too.

Dang, its always the UK!:mad:

Do you guys realise how lucky you are?
You can play ALL the softwares, you always get ALL the promotions, no bonusbans, no zillion-trillion times WR (UK has no bonusabusers).

The UK is gambling heaven!

*Most* .... MyBet don't take UK and yet they have some of the most likely slots to appeal :( But overall you're right... we're lucky, regulated and untaxed. But that's only how it should be in a democratic society - freedom of choice. And I believe there is an argument that tax should apply to "luxury" items rather than necessary items. A reasonable amount anyway (ie 10% or less). Gambling is a luxury item, after all.

Zeus is indeed a great slot with a fun bonusgame. Shinobi was one of my favorites when it was new. After about a year i just stopped paying me so now i don't like it anymore :D

The multiplayer slots they have now are also very good. Did you play the "Monopoly" when you were there ? I think those simultanious features is a very smart invention. I gives the impression of many winners.

Have you also been to HC Utrecht ?

I saw the multiplayer ones but can't remember if that was HC or Vegas. Deffo smart and more and more of them cropping up now. Saw some interesting ones on the IGT stand at ICE last month.

Never been to Utrecht :( HC Amsterdam is my only experience of a Dutch casino. Was impressed at the size and number of slots - less impressed that they spat out tokens and you were forever trying to find a bucket!!

Too bad you've missed Utrecht than... More slots and a far better setting than Amsterdam IMO. More friendly floorsupport and the buckets can be found almost everywhere ! :p

HC is about to exchange the coins for a cardsystem. Sounds good, but i tried it at HC Den Bosch or Eindhoven already and it sucks... You have to manually put the credits on and off the slots :what:
