888 Casino NJ Is Becoming Bigger And Better By The Month
Golden Nugget and other NJ giant online casinos-look out. 888 Casino wants to take you on and show that it is more than ready to make some big moves of its own.
With that goal in mind, 888 has already taken some major steps by adding to its already impressive portfolio 28 new slot games whose entertainment level is so spectacular it is off the charts.
What makes the new 888 slot collection special
888 has always been a casino that doesn’t just care about the quantity of games it offers but also the quality. It would never pad the site with run of the mill slots just to boast about how many there are. Instead, this NJ gambling website only deals with top of the line manufacturers and products.
More specifically, 888 has now turned to the world’s leading slot manufacturers like NetEnt and NYX Interactive, to supply its newest games. This is important because both brands are synonymous not only with the best in cutting edge online slot technology, state-of-the-art entertainment, and immersive gameplay but also some of the highest returning slots available to NJ players.
Whereas many other new slots might grab frequent players’ attention initially but fail to live up to their hype and turn out to offer little that is different, the new slots at 888 Casino will exceed your expectations. You’ll be amazed by all the unique features that make each one unlike any other games you have played. But even if slots are not your usual go-to game, once you take a look at 888’s latest offerings, you’ll be eager to try them.
Something for everyone
Of course, different players have very different tastes in games. That is why NetEnt and NYX Interactive offer slots encompassing a tremendous variety of themes, special features, and ways to win. This variety is well represented in the selection you can choose from at 888 Casino. It includes the five games described below and many more.
If you love the board game Monopoly, you may love the slot game Monopoly 250K by SG Digital even more. It’s called that because the maximum payout is indeed $250,000. But even if you don’t win the Super Jackpot, you’ll be astounded by how many other ways there are to win in this game.
For example, there is a Chance symbol and Mystery symbol and a Community Chest bonus that lets you pick a card for a win multiplier. Or you can land on the Big Wheel bonus and spin the wheel one time to see what your prize will be. It could be any of the following: a Free Parking Bonus, Railroad Bonus, Electric Company Bonus, or even a Go to Jail Bonus! Or you could win a cash prize like the $120 I won on a $6 bet on my fifth spin in demo mode.
- 25 reels / 40 fixed paylines
- Bets: 40 cents to $100
- RTP: 95.39 percent
- Based on the popular Monopoly board game
- Wild symbol with special features
- Big Wheel bonus
- $250K maximum payout!
Did you see the 2004 comedy film Anchorman starring Will Ferrell? If you did, you will surely enjoy the Anchorman slot game from Bally’s that’s based on the film. It has the same hilarious characters (Anchorman Ron Burgundy and his TV news team) as the film plus footage from the film.
The nonstop action will keep you glued to the screen. But most importantly, between a wild symbol, scatter symbol, bonus features galore, and four possible jackpots waiting to be won, the money-making potential this game offers is huge.
For example, just before any given spin during the base game, the reels might randomly reset to Mystery Stack Reels, with replacement symbols with bigger payouts, or Ron Reels, with fewer symbols so the odds of winning are better.
On the Baxter Wilds feature, 2-10 wild symbols get randomly placed on reels 2-5. Other special bonus features include Ron’s Giant Free Games and Whammy, with 6 or 12 free spins, respectively, the Sex Panther Pick Feature, and the opportunity to spin Brick’s Weather Wheel for a big cash prize.
But that’s not all. If three bonus symbols land anywhere on reels 2, 3, and 4, you get to spin the Big Bonus wheel, where you could win one of the following: a 500-1,000x bet multiplier, a Nice Jackpot, Very Nice Jackpot, or Really Good Jackpot!
- 5 reels / 25 fixed paylines
- Bets: 75 cents to $150
- RTP: 96.00 percent
- Based on the 2004 comedy film with the same title
- Bonus features galore
- Big Bonus wheel with a chance to win a 500-1,000x bet multiplier or a Nice, Very Nice, or Really Good jackpot
Leonidas King of the Spartans
How about taking a trip all the way back in time to ancient Greece? In case you didn’t see the blockbuster movie 300 or your knowledge of ancient history could use some brushing up, here’s some background information. Leonidas was the famous warrior king who led his 300 Spartan warriors to an upset victory over the mighty Persian army back in 480 BC.
Now you can get in the action yourself in the slot game Leonidas King of the Spartans by NYX. Join the legendary warrior in his fight for righteousness, glory, and gold and try to come out victorious, too.
A rugged mountain top and tumultuous bloody red sky set the stage for the fierce action taking place on the battlefield. And with all the opportunities for bonuses that can add big winnings to your own arsenal, you won’t want to miss a second of the excitement.
But be forewarned. If you’re looking for a peaceful, relaxing, relatively quiet slot, this is definitely not it! You’ll hear Leonidas shout his famous battle cry: “This is Sparta!” and thuds and bangs figure prominently in the soundtrack.
This is a battle like no other. Forget strategic planning because if luck is on your side, you never know what advantageous opportunity might strike next. Some of the bonus features include Wild Group Leonidas Wins, Random Leonidas Wins, and a Free Spins Battle Feature triggered by Queen Goro. In the latter, if either Leonidas himself or one of his two captains land on the reels you will trigger the Free Spins Battle Spartan Wilds All you can do is hope and pray that some of their warriors survive the ensuing arrow attack. If they do, they leave locked wilds!
- 5 reels / 40 fixed paylines
- Bets: 40 cents to $200
- RTP: 94.25 percent
- Based on the blockbuster film 300 depicting the epic battle where King Leonidas led his 300 Spartan warriors to victory over Persia
- Bonus features galore
The NetEnt game Vikings offers a totally different but no less exciting slot experience. Based on the popular Vikings TV series on the History Channel, this Nordic themed slot is perfect for fans of ocean adventures. Let Ramar Lothbrok, Lagertha, and the other Viking heroes from the TV show and special features like Raid Spins symbols, Hotspots, and the Shield Wall Feature help you build your empire.
Like most slot games, the Viking base game consists of five reels and three rows. But instead of a fixed number of paylines, it’s a 243 ways to win game.
The setting for the game is a seashore where the Vikings have landed to embark on the raids. The symbols on the screen look ominous and foreboding. But these Vikings are fearless so that and the eerie and suspenseful soundtrack accompanying the action are to be expected.
- Hot Spots
When a fully stacked Viking symbol lands in the Hot Spot area on reel 3, all other Viking symbols appearing outside of the Hot Spot are transformed into that symbol, too, with the potential for significant wins.
- Shield Wall Feature
In both the main game and Raid Spins, random areas of the reels may display a cluster of mystery symbols turning otherwise non-winning spins into winners.
- Raid Spins
You need three Raid Spins to land on reels 3, 4, and 5 in the main game to activate Raid Spin. That’s when the screen suddenly becomes a massive 7-reels, 5 rows, 78,125 ways to win playing area. A single spin could produce winnings of up to 10,000x your bet size!
- 5 reels / 243 ways to win
- 7 reels and 78,125 ways to win in the Raid Spins feature
- Bets: 20 cents to $100
- RTP: 96.05 percent
- Based on the Vikings TV series
- Nordic theme
- Action-packed slot with supersize win potential
Scudamore’s Super Stakes
Surely reading about all of these fantastic slots is already giving you an adrenaline rush. And you haven’t even started playing yet! But first, I’m “champing at the bit” to tell you about another great game that 888 Casino has added called Scudamore’s Super Stakes. This slot is also from NetEnt.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes is named after former UK champion jockey Peter Scudamore who, in fact, had a hand in developing this game. The setting for the game is a thoroughbred race track.
Going to the racetrack, picking which horse you think will win each race, then betting on it and rooting for it to cross the finish line first is so much fun I’m surprised it has taken as long as it has to recreate the experience in a superior slot game. But now that NetEnt has done it, why not make up for lost time and play this super exciting video slot today. Anyone who is already a fan of the sport of kings will love this game. Those who have never been to a racetrack will be converted into overnight horse racing fans, too.
The higher paying regular symbols are the same four horses entered in the race, while playing cards constitute the lower paying symbols. Peter Scudamore is the game’s wild symbol while a gold cup trophy is the scatter symbol.
Scudamore’s Super Stakes does not offer any progressive jackpot. But with a Return to Player (RTP) over 96 percent and a maximum payout of 5,000x your betting stake, it doesn’t need one. If you can afford the $100 maximum bet, you could win up to $500,000 on a single spin!
- Random Wilds
During the base game, 2-5 horseshoe symbols might appear randomly on the reels, instantly transforming any symbols they land on into wild symbols.
- Bet Slip
Before each spin during the base game, if you wish, you can make an optional side bet on a Bet Slip. The side bet can be any amount from 80 cents to $80.
- Peter’s Classic Cup Bonus Feature
On any given spin during the base game, if three scatter symbols simultaneously appear anywhere on reels 1, 3, and 5, that triggers the Peter’s Classic Cup bonus feature. You will know instantly because the screen gets transformed from the previous 5 reels, 3 rows, 20 paylines layout into 5 reels, 4 rows, and 32 paylines.
Your task, of course, is to pick the winner of the race. But, luckily for you, it should be a lot easier than trying to do the same at the racetrack, as there are only four horses competing (the same four horses that serve as regular symbols in the base game). Here are your choices:
Tin Foil Hat: Blue jockey silks, paying 50x your bet
Gonzo’s Quest: Green jockey silks, paying 100x your bet
Berry Max: Purple jockey silks, paying 500x your bet
Divine Fortune: Red jockey silks, paying 5,000x your bet
By the way, the horses are named after other NetEnt slot games.
Here’s how the race works. On each winning spin, the horse associated with the same color as the winning symbol advances one spot. The winner of the race is the first horse to advance four spots.
Barb’s Best Bet
It takes a truly special slot to make the cut as a Barb’s Best Bet, and Scudamore’s Super Stakes is one of them. Read my full review of this superior slot game here.
- 5 reels / 20 paylines
- Bets: 10 cents to $100
- RTP: 96.11 percent
- Horse racing theme
- Wild and scatter symbols plus Random Wilds feature and bet slip side bet option in the base game
- Peter’s Classic Cup with the opportunity to bet on your favorite horse and win 50 to 5,000 your betting stake
