Play 5 New Playtech Slots & Games at Betfred Mobile CasinoMarch 23rd, 2015
Betfred mobile casino have released one blackjack and four new Playtech slots for mobile phones & tablets. We do a quick review of each and which are worth playing.
Playtech have decided that they are going to go into Spring with a host of new exciting releases to clear the cobwebs of winter.
Why play the same old cold mobile slots and games, when you can try something totally hot and different?
And different you certainly get here. There’s a mobile blackjack table with a real twist, and slot machines that will appeal to all levels of players.
We look into each carefully and decide which are worth your while.
All have been recently added to Betfred casino, where you get a 100% up to £$€200 bonus to help you play for that little bit longer.
We begin with what we think is the most exiting one of the lot.
A great Blackjack Twist
Bet you thought we’d go straight for the new Playtech casino slots right? WRONG! Because for once we are given a Blackjack table that’s more than your classic Vegas rules.
There’s a twist to this tale, and it provides blackjack casino players with a little variety on mobile. Something that is seriously lacking in all the other casino software providers.
More than a UK Casino
Play in CAD, AUD, EU, GBP, ZAR and more.
So what’s the twist? Two things:
- You play with two hands, where you can decide to swap the two top cards to maximise perfect combinations.
- You can do a ‘Super Match Bet’ where you can get more than just you 1:1 win on blackjack. You’re betting that over your four cards you’ll get a 3 of a kind (pays 5:1), 2 pairs (8:1), 4 of a kind (40:1). If this is too ‘far out’ for you, you can simply not bet or use it.
We loved the format. Not only does it allow us to play a little more strategically with our blackjack cards, but there was the potential for huge wins with the super match bet option.
It does make the table a little more expensive than most other Blackjack mobile games (min bet is 1 chip, but once you bet both hands and the super bet, it’s more like 3), but worth it.
White King is the 40 payline slot
This truly is a very pretty slot machine, with regal blues bringing out the beautiful pride of white cats in a gorgeous mountain setting.
But then, we always expect Playtech slots to be stunning.
What makes White Lion appealing is that it’s probably the easiest to play and simplest of the lot.
Who is this for?
It’s about low to mid variance in the volatility scale, so beginners to slots should easily enjoy it without it killing your budget quickly. Especially as the betting range varies from 0.40 to 16 in real money cash spins.
The crowning glory here is the white male lion which is wild and comes stacked. The game logo is the scatter and when it shows up on reels 2, 3 and 4 gets you five free spins.
Not much perhaps, but the stacked wilds are far more plentiful, and whilst you might not make a killing to retire on, you can still have some roaring entertaining wins.
Silent Samurai is the middle of the road game
We start going up the variance scale here.
With 9 paylines and some OK wins in the base game, you’ll have to start watching your budget to make it through till the free spins.
And it’s not the wild dragon or the scatter painted lady that will catch your eye (though both are high paying symbols), it’s the Samurai man who, when he appears on reels 1 and 5, triggers the mini-game.
More than just a casino
Fancy playing bingo, lottery, live casino or bet on sports? Betfred is for you.
How it works
Hit ninjas to collect free spins and multipliers. Hitting a magic ninja will automatically hit 3 extra ninjas awarding their prizes. Hitting an evil ninja that doesn’t explode will start your free spins.
You can, sometimes, get some decent multipliers, but it’s probably the weakest of the new slots releases.
The minimum bet it 0.09, going up to only 9 in cash.
Things get interesting in Pharaoh’s Secrets
And what’s very interesting about this 20 paylines, 5 reels Playtech slot is that it has what’s called the XtraWin function.
What the freak is that? Basically you pay 50% on top of your normal bet and what you get is:
- Stacked wilds in the base game
- Improves the overall game payout
You can only activate it if you have all paylines active of course, but then we’d never recommend anything else anyway.
It does raise the minimum bet from 0.20 to 0.30, and the max bet from 40 to 60. So bear that in mind.
But then there’s the free spins…
Which, when you get 3 pyramids, you’ll get to choose from three symbols. It’s basically a pretty way of making you think you have a choice in a random pre-determined choice.
Best Casino Games at Betfred?
- The Incredible Hulk
- Rainbow Riches
- Live roulette
You’ll get anything from 15 to 100 free spins. We usually hit 24 to 30 free spins, but even getting the 50 or 75 free spins would be truly thrilling.
The good news is that the wild expands as standard, and comes with a 2x multiplier. Imagine that on 100 free spins.
Be careful though, Pharaoh’s secret slot starts to go up the variance scale, sitting in the medium-high bracket, and will easily eat your budget in a few spins if you’re not careful.
The dangerous Zhao Cai Jin Bao slot
And last but not least, an unpronounceable slot machine that will either have you running towards it… or as far away as possible.
It’s actually a ridiculously simple game. It has 9 paylines and 5 reels and all the symbols you’ve come to expect from an asian theme.
Literally meaning ‘let riches and treasures come into the house’. It’s used in Chinese to wish good fortune in business by invoking the god of wealth.
Though all you really need to know (cultural points aside) is that this Playtech slot pays both ways and has a wild symbol that appears only on reels 2, 3 and 4. And that’s pretty much it.
Oh and the wild also replaces the scatters. And thats… yeap… that’s really it.
Save the best till last?
Simple yes, but don’t misunderstand simplicity for idiocy. Zhao Cai Jin Bao knows exactly what it’s doing.
Namely providing you with the largest wins of all the slots on this new release.
And that without taking into account the 2x multiplier on the wild, which makes a five of a kind win into a fireworks frenzy of joy.
You’ll have to be a little brave to play it though.
But you know what they say. Fortune favours the bold.
