All Jackpots Casino
All Jackpots casino is one of the most popular Microgaming casinos, especially with US players. Since the inception of slot tournaments, it has built a reputation for offerring the biggest prizes, often in excess of $100,000. Cashouts are reasonably speedy and there is a big array of banking options (see below). The games choice is massive and there is also a Flash version of the casino available. Overall, one of the better MG online casinos and one I play at regularly. More: All Jackpots Casino review.
All Jackpots Casino is one of the most popular Microgaming-powered casinos, having been one of the first to introduce the popular slots tournaments feature. Licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission, All Jackpots Casino is one of a family of casinos operated by a well-respected management team who also created the Jackpot Madness site and the Spin3 mobile casino software.
Needless to say, I was eager to give All Jackpots Casino a run, hoping that I would be the beneficiary of one of the jackpots that it is named after. So after a short download and installation, I registered my account at All Jackpots and proceeded to the lobby, where I was attracted to a slot game named Jolly Jester. Incidentally, Alljackpots also has the Microgaming Slot Tournament module with free buyins and plenty of big money tournies on offer. Anyway…
Jolly Jester is a 5-reel, 25-line slot with a bit of a twist – if you get three Castle scatters on a spin, you are taken to the bonus game where there are 9 boxes for you to choose from, until you match three of a kind. Three Free Spins symbols will give you 10 free spins, with the multiplier starting at 1x and increasing with each spin. Three Jesters symbols will give you 10 free spins at 2x, with the “King and Queen” symbol becoming a wild Jester, and three Castle symbols will give you 10 free spins at 2x, only with the “King and Queen” symbol morphing into a Castle scatter symbol instead.
Arguably, the increasing multiplier – similar to the popular Cleopatra game by IGT, has the potential to return the biggest payouts – but you could also get a very stingy payout. I managed to hit the Jesters three times on the feature, returning a nice 60x, a so-so 22x, and a pitiful 12x. All of these came quite quickly – and before long I managed to hit the feature again, this time with the Free Spins symbols – and on the 9th spin, I managed to hit three Castle scatters. Unfortunately, free spins can’t be retriggered – but the three scatters still returned 45x, and the entire feature paid a sweet 100x. Didn’t manage to hit the Castle symbols on a feature, but judging by the few King & Queen symbols that I saw the entire time, I doubt I missed out on too much.
Another great slot at All Jackpots Casino is The Grand Circus – a 5-reel, 20-line slot with 3, 4 or 5 Circus scatters (left to right) awarding you up to 20 free spins or a bonus game where you pick from 6 bears to win bonus credits. The interesting thing about this game, however, is that there are three different types of scatters – besides Circus scatters, there are Grand Circus scatters, and Ringmaster scatters. Even more unusual is that these last two scatters also serve as normal payline symbols – and the Grand Circus and Ringmaster scatters can also combine on a line pay – very unusual. But because of these unusual scatters, there are no wild symbols in this game.
Almost immediately after starting the game, I won 20 free spins which returned 37x – a quick profit, but I wasn’t satisfied yet so I continued to play. I got the feature again, which gave me 18 spins for 35x – pretty steady returns. To top it off, I got the feature one more time and this time got the Bear picking game, which returned… you guessed it… 35x. All in all, I will never complain about a constant 35x bonus win if the feature appears as often as it did in this session.
While I didn’t hit any jackpot wins, I had a great run at All Jackpots Casino and I’d hope that you would have the same sort of luck when you next visit this well-established casino. I know I’ll be going back…
