1. Gonzo’s Quest

The next video slots game we’d like to mention in our list of Top Slots games to play in 2018 is none other than Gonzo’s Quest which will is soon due to be released as a VR Slots game this summer. The NetEnt powered Slots game, which features Gonzo as a character, is based on the historical figure Gonzalo Pizzaro who was a Spanish conquistador and serves to digitally transport avid Slots players to Eldorado.

The Slots game starts with a short 3D video of Gonzo’s tale. Once the actual slots game has loaded, you’ll be able to see detailed symbols of realistic Inca carvings of both animal and human faces. T After you’ve place your bet, you won’t see reels spinning. Instead, you’ll just see a number of falling blocks in 5 different columns.

Provided that you manage to strike a winning combination while playing the 20 line slots game, the symbols present will disappear in a 3D explosion. Any gaps present will fill up with more falling symbols.

Three immensely interesting features of this slots game are its Avalanche multipliers, Free Fall symbols and wild symbols. Once an Avalanche multiplier appears the win multiplier increases. If you manage to get a combination of 3 Free Falls symbols, 10 Free Falls will be activated. On the other hand, if you’re lucky enough to land on Wild symbols they will be substituted for all symbols.

2 . PlayBoy Gold Online Slot

2017 marked the year that the legend Hugh Hefner sadly passed away. Yet, his legacy still remains; especially his widely established Playboy brand.

As the successor of Playboy Slots, this slots game is presented with a new 6-reel layout, 100 different paylines and giant symbols. Special features include a bonus picking round and free spins.

On testing the game at one of the online casinos, the Jumbo Blocks feature is one that really stood out to us. This is triggered when the symbols large Playboy symbols appear on the game’s reels. Once it’s set off, the large Playboy symbols will take up more than one reel. The middle 4 reels will then spin together with the Jumbo Blocks. When a Jumbo Block appears in full on the Slots’ reels, one of three features is set off. These include the Instant Credit Prize, which gives you a cash bonus, the Multiplier feature, which multiplies the winning amount you’ve managed to amass and finally the Free spins features which gives you free spins.

5. Starburst

Starburst may have been released quite some time ago now, however, NetEnt’s 10-payline video slot is definitely still relevant and widely played in the online gambling world. Yes folks, it’s one of those timeless classics that will probably still be around in another ten years’ time. On loading the 5-reeled slots game, you’ll be able to see several vibrant cosmic gem symbols. Other symbols that are present in the casino game are the classic Bar symbols and 7 symbols. However, this particular video slot’s gem is indeed its wild symbol which is perhaps the most coveted by players. Wild symbols only appear on the second, third and fourth reels and if two of them appear on the reels, the Starburst Wild feature will be triggered.

6. Jack and the Beanstalk

Growing up, most of us read or watched the classic tale of Jack and the Beanstalk with great fascination and delight. Yet, sadly as time rolled by and we all grew up a large part of the magic faded.

Any wild symbols that you land on will remain displayed on the reels as you spin the game’s reels in hopes of generating even more spins and of course cash.

Provided that you manage to land on the Sparks symbols on the game’s outer reels, you’ll be able to activate the Sparks’ feature. This particular slots’ feature will reward you with 6 free spins which will transform into individual wild symbol with any multiplier.

9. Age of the Gods: Fate Sisters

In 2016, many online gamblers found themselves extremely disappointed when Playtech pulled its Marvel Jackpots series. And just when many online gamblers thought they’d never be able to play an interesting Slots title ever again, the release of Age of the Gods: Fate Sisters completely managed to change everybody’s minds.

Now although Playtech’s new progressive jackpot slots game series is not quite the same as its former series, the series still provides fantastic entertainment for gamblers to enjoy. After all, it’s got stunning Egyptian-themed graphics and life-changing jackpots to be won just like the Marvel ones did.

The 25-payline Slots game features a more than generous amount of free spins with extra wild symbols, multipliers, locking wilds and more. The top prize to be had whilst playing one of the progressive games in the series is about $1 million. What’s not to like?

10. Rise of the Pharaoh’s Slot game

A few years ago, the Egyptian-themed slots games were all the range. However, many online casino software developers sadly stopped producing slots games with Egyptian-themed crypts, pyramids and Pharaoh’s for some time. Now they’re totally making a fabulous comeback and while there are many of them, Rise of the Pharaoh’s Slots is proof enough of just how spectacular Egyptian-themed Slots are.

The 5-reeled Slots game, which displays an Egyptian tomb in its background, features several different symbols including mummies, Gods, Pharaohs and more. In total, the Slots game has 15 fixed pay lines and the larger your bets are, the bigger your chances of winning a life-changing amount is. Among the most exciting features to look out for while playing Rise of the Pharaoh’s Slots at online casinos are free spins, wild symbols and sticky wilds. It’s even got its very own bonus game with multipliers too!

FDJ and Heritage Foundation Donate €1.26M to YMCA Paris for Restoration Project



Reading Time: < 1 minute


French national lottery operator Française des Jeux (FDJ) has made a €1.26m donation to mark this year’s European Heritage Days.

Late last month, FDJ embarked on its fifth “Mission Patrimoine,” a scheme to raise money for protecting and restoring heritage sites.

Now, in the same vein, FDJ and French heritage foundation Fondation du Patrimoine have joined forces to help restore a piece of Parisian history.

The YMCA Paris, located at 14 Rue de Trévise, was inaugurated in 1893 and houses the world’s oldest basketball court.

In a bid to maintain this site, a registered historical monument “weakened by time,” FDJ and Fondation du Patrimoine have awarded the YMCA €1.26m.

“Contributing to the renovation of the YMCA site, weakened by time, and bringing it back to life is a source of great pride for FDJ, our Corporate Foundation and employees,” FDJ Chairman and CEO Stéphane Pallez said.

“The YMCA project allows us to combine our various societal commitments in the areas of heritage, sport and youth,” she added.

In August, FDJ launched the latest incarnation of its Mission Patrimoine. This involved a scratch card campaign and several Loto draws to raise money for Fondation du Patrimoine.

Célia Vérot, General Manager of Fondation du Patrimoine, said: “The YMCA Paris site proves that beyond its cultural or architectural interest, heritage can play a very useful social role.

“With the support of FDJ and the FDJ Foundation, Fondation du Patrimoine promotes the financing of heritage projects with an impact in terms of inclusion and integration.”
