Bonus games have become an integral part of online casino slots. Wealth Spa, one of the Microgaming slot games released last week, has introduced a unique way of accessing bonus games. In almost all online slots bonus games are automatically triggered when a specified combination of symbols appear on the reels. These may be the scatter symbols or wild symbols or in some cases special bonus symbols. About three years ago Microgaming launched its watershed progressive slot game, Mega Moolah, in which the bonus game was triggered randomly. In Wealth Spa it has devised an even more fascinating scheme for the bonus games. Bonus games are not activated but can be purchased.

In Wealth Spa the route to the bonus games is through a special symbol, which is the Token. The Token appears only in Reel 5. When it appears in the central row of Reel 5 the first step to the bonus games is initiated. The player can purchase the bonus game that has a price of 1 Token. Alternatively the player can accumulate the Token. When the player accumulates two Token symbols he can purchase the bonus game that has the price of 2 Tokens, or he can hold on to the Tokens. There are five bonus games with prices ranging from 1 Token to 5 Tokens. The player can at any time pay the appropriate number of Tokens from his stock and buy the bonus game he wants. However, as soon as the player accumulates the fifth Token, the bonus game priced at 5 Tokens is automatically activated.

The bonus games increase in complexity and interest with the price. The bonus game available for 1 Token is the Smoothie Bonus. Fruit juice is a staple diet at Wealth Spa. However players get to choose the fruits they want in the juice. Each fruit chosen awards players bonus credits. The bonus game available for 2 Tokens is the Hot Stones Bonus. Hot stones are placed on the body to offer relief. Players have to pick two stones and are given a multiplier that is used to determine their bonus credits. The bonus game available for 3 Tokens is the Body Wax Bonus. Waxing makes one look better but is a painful process. The client screams as the hair is removed and the louder the scream the more the bonus credits awarded. The bonus game available for 4 Tokens is the Bath Oil Bonus. Oil baths are given at Wealth Spa in order to provide relaxation. Players can keep choosing bath oils till they reach a booby. Each bath oil chosen provides bonus credits. The bonus game available for 5 Tokens is the Massage Bonus. Players have to choose body hot spots and accumulate free spins. Then they play out the free spins accumulated. A payout of 200,000 coins can be reached in this bonus round. Wealth Spa is available and can be played at all Microgaming powered online casinos. A few of our favorite Microgaming casinos to play this game at are: All Slots Casino, Platinum Play Casino and Roxy Palace Casino.

I tried this game out today and was really quite literally blown away. I'm very impressed and happy at the caliber of the quality and thought that went into developing this game. It's obvious that MGS has spend a lot of time with this game in getting a game that wasn't just another of their cookie cutter type games that we so often see. I've noticed that they're starting to innovate more and more now it's really great to see. I think that the fact that there are new software providers coming to market and additionally the fact that Playtech and Cryptologic are both really pushing the boundaries here in their slots games Microgaming is just going to continue stepping it up to stay a head of the competition!
