Playtech has recently developed a brand new online video slot called Thor – The Mighty Avenger, which will be added to their impressive catalogue of branded Marvel™ slots. This new online slot has 5 reels and 30 winning paylines and it will be available instantly, via Playtech’s Flash casino platform, plus it will also be available via their award winning downloadable software.
Thor is based on the hit blockbuster movie of the same and it features the main characters including Laufey, Heimdall (the gatekeeper of the rainbow bridge), the Frost Giants and various other characters. The game is set in the mythical Nordic land of Asgard and it boasts rich graphics, energetic animations and electrifying sound effects.
Like all of the other Marvel™ branded slots by Playtech, this one is also connected to the Multi-Level Progressive Jackpot network. These jackpots include the Power Jackpot (generally the lowest valued), the Extra Power Jackpot (second lowest), the Super Power Jackpot and the then highest Jackpot is usually the Ultimate Power Jackpot.
There are two separate re-spin features that can occur during regular play on this new slot, which contain a Locked Wild feature of stacked symbols. These locked wild symbols are otherwise known as Sticky Wilds. This slot terminology varies from one software provider to the next.
The Lightning Respin feature can award players with up to as many as five wild symbols and the Thunderstorm Respin will hold reel 2 in position and this reel (second from the left) will then transform into a completely wild reel to help generate plenty of additional line wins. There are also two different Free Spins modes where huge prizes can be won with the help of bonus multipliers.
During the Earth Mode, the Destroyer sets fire to random positions on the reels, multiplying wins along the way. In the Juotunheim Mode, the frost giants freeze winning combinations in position for one additional spin and Laufey is waiting on the reels to help boost your winnings even further. You can also win additional prizes through random scatter wins.
This slot looks set to be just as exciting as the others in the Marvel™ series and it will soon be available in various fully licensed online casinos. If you enjoyed the other marvel™ slots that Playtech has already released, you should thoroughly enjoy this brand new action packed video slot.
Other popular games in the same series include Iron Man 1 and 2, The Incredible Hulk, Fantastic Four, Elektra, X-Men, Blade, Daredevil and Punisher – War Zone.

Critics have claimed that the deal which was recently closed between the gaming group 888 and Facebook that allows users to place real cash wagers will inevitably breed a new generation of problem gamblers. Registered members will now be able to gamble for real on popular Vegas-style casino games such as Blackjack, Roulette and even Online Slot Machines.
One of the greatest concerns is that the launch of these new online gambling apps will expose the world of gambling to underage people, although both parties (Facebook and 888) claim to have necessary measures to prevent underage gambling.
The kind of underage checks in place include checking the credit or debit card details with the users Facebook profile. This information will also be checked with the UK electoral register. However, if the user already has his or her details stored on the computer and their child decides to use these details while logged in to their parents Facebook account, there is nothing stopping that child from bleeding their parents credit or debit card dry.
Gamblers in the UK can now place bets worth as much as £500 and in some cases the jackpots available now reach tens of thousands of pounds. US Facebook users will not have these gambling services available to them.
Facebook has for a very long time had various slots, bingo and other Vegas-style games available for registered users to play on, but you could only play on these games in what is often referred to as the free play mode where fun chips, or ‘Credits’ could be won. Even the poker chips on Facebook can be purchased for real cash although no real money can be won.
The professor of gambling studies at Nottingham Trent University, Mark Griffiths, commented on this controversial subject, “You win virtually every time you play on the free games.”
He then went on to say, “Research has shown again and again that one of the biggest factors in developing problem gambling is playing free games online first. These teenagers and children today are the problem gamblers of tomorrow.”
It seems as though this fun mode has hooked hundreds of thousands of daily players who will no doubt pursue the real cash mode, which for many people is a very worrying situation. However Facebook maintains that their online gambling services will not be advertised to registered users who are under the age of 18.
Only time will tell what kind of effects real cash gambling through social networking sites will have on society. Facebook has paved the way and other sites will probably follow suit and also start offering similar gambling services over the coming years.

Within the Danish gambling market, the role of an Approved Enterprise is to carry out reports of individual license holders, which should include in-depth reviews of their operational activities, as well as the monitoring and gathering of financial and statistical data, all while in accordance with Danish regulations and within 14 months of the actual license being issued.
The aim of the review is to make sure that the licensed gambling operator is conducting operations within Danish gambling laws. eCOGRA has already been carrying out technical standards reviews for operators that have obtained a license from the Danish Gambling Authority, but this is the first time that an non-Danish, internationally accredited testing agency has been given such a huge role.
The chief executive of eCOGRA, Andrew Beveridge, recently commented on the agency’s new role, “The majority of eCOGRA’s employees are professionally qualified auditors with Big 4 audit firm backgrounds, and are highly experienced in auditing and reviewing financial information and remote gambling operator systems; we were therefore confident that we would meet the high standards of the Danish regulator.”
He also added, "eCOGRA now has ten years of diverse compliance, testing and consulting experience in the industry, during which its staff has successfully performed over 500 online gambling compliance reviews in the areas of player protection and responsible operator behaviour, in most cases for large and well-established internet gambling operator and software supplier companies."
"I therefore believe that we are well suited to perform the role of an Approved Enterprise in the growing Danish market. This appointment is extremely important to us, as our clients require us to provide them the full suite of services required by the various licensing jurisdictions, including the review of technical and information security requirements, and legal and financial compliance."
eCOGRA now operates within various different jurisdictions around the world, including the Isle of Man, Spain, Gibraltar, Italy, Malta, Kahnawake and Denmark, and since they first formed as an auditor almost a decade ago, eCOGRA has helped the online gambling industry become more of a safe and fair online environment for operators, but more importantly, for players.
To date, in excess of 200 individual web-based gambling sites have now been accredited (and are constantly monitored) by this reputable London-based organisation.

Sushi Bar is a brand new online video slot developed by BetSoft Gaming. This software company’s ground-breaking product has become synonymous with the best of what online slot technology has to offer us today. Each of the modern BetSoft video slots has been developed with extremely high quality and captivating 3D graphics.
The impressive sound effects and immersive gameplay are also quite often unrivalled. It is only online slots from companies such as Sheriff Gaming that have equally impressive graphics.
This recently released Japanese food themed slot is non-downloadable. It has 5 reels and 25 winning paylines and you will notice plenty of frequent in-play animations occurring, which massively adds character to the game and helps bring the reels to life. Look out for the Japanese sushi chef in the bottom right hand side of the game window for some quirky animations.
The symbols on the reels include some rather creative-looking poker numbers and letters. At first glance, some of the symbols look just like plates of sushi but on closer inspection they also look like the number 10 and the letters J, Q, K and A.
Other regular symbols include items such as a Plate with Chopsticks, a Knife and Chopping Board, but the highest valued symbol is the Teapot. The Wild Symbols are the Soy Sauce Bottles and the Scatter Symbols are the Paper Fan. Any line win that contains a wild symbol will be doubled and this symbol also has the ability to substitute all of the other symbols on the reels except for the Scatter Symbols.
When 3, 4 or 5 of the scatters appear anywhere in view along the reels, you will be awarded either 8, 12 or 20 Free Spins respectively. Any line win that occurs during this Free Spins bonus round will be doubled. The top coin prize available on this slot (when betting max) is worth 5,000 coins.
The betting range on Sushi Bar makes it an ideal game to play whatever your budget may be. One spin can cost from as little as 0.25 coins (with all of the paylines activated) and the most that one spin can cost is no more than 125.00 coins. This game is available in either the free play mode or in the real cash mode.
In terms of graphics and the overall quality, this slot is absolutely fantastic. The sound effects are well worth turning up and the game is far more enjoyable when played in the Fullscreen Mode. The only downside is that it seems to be lacking action. One or two more bonuses rounds would have made this slot ten times better than it already is.
