  1. Why Release 1000 Slots On The Same Day?

    by , 10 April 2014 at 2:29 pm (Slots Universe Blog)
    Here's a serious question for anyone reading this who might have the real answer.

    Why do Microgaming and, more particularly, their Quickfire game distribution platform always release so many games on the same day?

    You'll find that, every 3 weeks or so, half a dozen slots go live on a variety of online casinos all at the same time - all pushed out to them via Microgaming Quickfire. The majority of these slots aren't developed by Microgaming themselves but it's not uncommon ...
  2. Too Much Prettiness and Not Enough Cash

    It seems that there is a trend among slots developers these days. And that is: to make the games as pretty as possible, with loads of high quality animations, movie interludes and even high-definition 3D symbols.

    Of course, this is no bad thing. Slot machines - whether online or in land casinos - are supposed to be a form of entertainment and a graphically stunning slot is definitely better than one that looks like it came out of the 1960s.

    However, the corollary of this ...
  3. A Bit More Honesty In Reviews Needed

    Since launching our latest site, SlotsUniverse , we (and it is 'we' - there's a team of three of us here) have spent a lot of time reviewing slot games as honestly and openly as we can. Indeed, we spend an average of 18 man hours on each review.

    As part of this process, we do check out other affiliate sites slots reviews to see what they have to say about the games we're reviewing and to see if there's anything critical we've missed.

    And, I have to say, that I've been very, ...
  4. Blackpool vs Birmingham Tip

    Having made a complete fool of myself by predicting, basically, that Chelsea would beat Villa to nil, I'm back again with a preview of Blackpool vs Birmingham.

    Blackpool actually haven't been that great at home this season - most of their victories have been on the road.

    By contrast, Birmingham City have been, well, 'meh' all season and, quite frankly, their sluggish, artless football bores the hell out of me.

    Blackpool are slight favourites at around 5/4 and ...

    So, it's a New Year and there's a big Premier League match today, between the under performing Chelsea and the even more underperforming Aston Villa.

    Currently, Chelsea sit 5th in the League, a point behind Spurs and it's crucial for their season to keep ahead of Tottenham. I can't imagine the consequences if Chelsea fall out of the Champions League positions.

    They are up against a Villa side who seem to have fallen apart since Gerard Houllier took over. Houllier seems ...
