Happy belated Thanksgiving and “Black Friday”!

First off I’d like to say thanks for everyone’s support this year and hope you all have had a pleasant Thanksgiving.

As the world kicks off the unofficial beginning of the Christmas holiday, we here at Great World Games are hard at work putting finishing touches on our upcoming “Buffalo Gold” slot game app for the iPad, iPhone, and Kindle Fire.  Look for more info on this Video Slot App next week.

Also, “King’s Tomb Video Slot Machine”, the “best video slot in the itunes app store” will be coming soon to the Amazon Appstore.  It has been specifically tuned for the Kindle Fire.  It has been enhanced to the Kindle Fire tablet’s wide screen format.  We expect it to be released December 5th, 2011.

Stay tuned for an upcoming article on Random Number Generation (RNG) and some background on Slot Mathematics and how these two combine to make a great player experience.  Why do slot machines get hot?


Welcome to the Video Slot and Pokie Blog

Here we will review current and upcoming video slot games and “pokie’s”.  It’s a somewhat daunting task to play every new machine that comes out.  We are actively looking for professional feature reviews of new slot games.  In particular games like “Sex and the City”, “Cleopatra”, “Dirty Dancing”, “Star Wars”, “Wheel of Fortune”, and the upcoming “Michael Jackson” slot by Bally.  Feel free to contact us to submit your reviews.  I will start off with a few of my all time favorites – Aristocrat’s “Buffalo” slot, IGT’s “Wheel of Fortune”, and “Wizard of OZ”.

Great World Games partner’s are avid slot fans.  I personally try to make it out to Las Vegas at least twice a year and also make occasional side trips to Atlantic City and New Orleans (Harrah’s). I will also post an occasional casino review and any great travel deals to Las Vegas or New Orleans.




“King’s Tomb” iPad, iPhone, and Kindle Fire Slot Machine App

This is somewhat of a shameless plug for our own app…  The best new ipad slot game!!

Apple iPad/iPhone/iPod version

But, if you compare it to any of the other competition in the iTunes app store or Amazon’s app store, you’ll see that ours is the most realistic.  The images you see here are from the iPad version which the app has been specifically designed for.

The game runs at a smooth 60 frames per second with beautiful graphics and sound.

Here you can see a “Great Win” animation.  King’s Tomb is a 25 line game with line bets from 1 to 5 credits.  Max spin bets are $1.25.  The bonus features stacked “King Tut” symbols and a “shake-shake” fall-down-sarcophagus wild on reels 1, 3, or 5.  Plenty of big win volatility!

The free spin bonus is triggered by a scatter on reels 1, 3, and 5.

Best of all, the math model is “real”.  In other words, unlike most slot game app’s in the iTunes store, the math model payout and random number stream are 100% authentic.  So yes, over time you will lose money as all casino slot machines do.  However, there is plenty of real volatility to keep you hooked like the real thing.

We are proud of our first release and hope you will enjoy it also.  It’s priced at a mere $1.99 which is equal to 1 real bet in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, New Orleans, or any casino near you.

Buffalo Slot Machine

Aristocrat’s Buffalo slot machine has been out for a long time.  The reason I post this is that I’m a new convert to it.  I never quite understood the appeal of it.  From afar it seemed like it was a low paying machine with poor graphics and sound.

This August a friend of mine twisted my arm into going with him to Vegas to “get our game on”.  We met some other tourists who insisted that Aristocrat’s Buffalo slot game was one of the best slot game’s ever made.  I had heard that before from other folks.  Anyway, we dispersed into the casino.  The Buffalo games at Harrah’s were pretty much full.  I waited around and watched them play.  After a while a machine opened up.  I put $40 in and started to play.

The “Extra Reel Power” moniker of Aristocrat’s games always confused me somewhat.  For those that have never played it, this series of games allows you to bet on each reel.  So you can bet 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 reels.  The bet per reel goes up as follows: 1 reel is 1 cent, 2 reels is a 5 cent bet, 3 is 10 cents, 4 is 20 cents, and 5 reels is a 40 cent bet.  The machine I was playing allowed 1-5 bets per reel which if you bet all five reels at 5, the max bet was $2.  What also confused me and kind of turned me off was that if you bet 5 reels you were betting on 1024 paylines.  I figured that since each payline was so cheap to buy, that the payout would reflect that.  In a way, it does.  The game, if only played for a little while will payout a bunch of small pays.  For instance you can get a win with just two 9′s.  I believe the pay for that is just 2 cents.

The real excitement I learned was in the stacked Buffalo’s.  They payout in 2 interesting ways.  The first would be on just a normal, non-free spin, win.  The pays are all grouped together as well.  For instance, if you win on multiple “lines”, each win combination will group together.  For example if you would have had 5 buffalo’s on 10 payline’s, the game groups all these lines together and flashes them all at once.  After a few wins, I adapted to this way of thinking and it made sense to me.  The real Kick to this game though is in the free spins.  You trigger free spins in a typical way.  You get 3-5 coin symbols on a scatter, which will give you 8, 10, or 15 free spins respectively.  Now, the REAL KICK.  Any wild symbols act as multipliers.  Each wild symbol will act as either a 2X or 3X multiplier and is cumulative so if you had two wilds showing 2X and 3X, the total multiplier would be 6X.  I think the theoretical maximum multiplier would 27X, but I never hit this.  Have any of you ever hit this?

Anyway, when you now hit a big set of Buffalo symbols, the payout can get huge.  I’m hooked now!  Anyone else a fan?
