Virgin Casino Adds More Microgaming Slots

The best place to wager on Microgaming slots other than a dedicated Microgaming online casino is Virgin Casino. Though Virgin Casino is powered by software from WagerWorks it offers the best of Microgaming online slots to its players. There are eternal titles like Thunderstruck, Hitman, Mermaids Millions and Cashapillar as well as the latest ones like Thunderstruck II and The Lord of the Rings.

Now after a brief lull, Virgin Casino has added three more Microgaming online slots to its portfolio. 5 Reel Drive and Reel Thunder are somewhat similar with a racing theme whereas Vinyl Countdown has a 1960s theme when iPods could not even be imagined and music was heard from rotating vinyl discs. The juke box is the wild symbol and the vinyl disc offers the highest jackpot. The other symbols include an Elvis type singer, a love struck female fan, a couple dancing and a pair of dancing shoes. Instead of the high value card symbols are a choice selection of ice creams. Juke boxes were often found at ice cream shops which then were the regular haunt of teenagers. Vinyl Countdown is from the older of the Microgaming slot games and therefore has nothing to offer by way of contemporary game features. But players who have lived this life in the 1960s will just love the slot game.

Reel Thunder is from the same generation of Microgaming slots as Vinyl Countdown and therefore the attraction will be the theme rather than the game features. Reel Thunder has a motor bike racing theme with the symbols crafted in a slightly comical manner. The road hog offers the highest payout and there could not be a more appropriate symbol. The other symbols associated with the theme are the motor cycle tire, the speedometer and the rider burning the road. Long distance motor bike riding is linked to eating and drinking at road side eateries and therefore the other symbols include beer, hot dogs, eggs and pancakes.

In 5 Reel Drive the motorbike has given way to an assortment of cars with different drivers, including a pink car driven by a lady. But otherwise the atmosphere is similar. The highest payout is provided by the checkered flag, the wild symbol is the road sign and the scatter symbol is the police car. The food symbols include burger, fries, cola, coffee and pie. An intriguing symbol is a pair of dice.

All three games have been offered from the new QuickFire platform of Microgaming. QuickFire is a versatile platform that can be integrated quickly, completely and seamlessly into any shared infrastructure. It offers a hassle free and unique gaming experience for both online casino operator and player.
