New Bridesmaids Slot Leaves the Competition Blushing

The cheeky humour of the smash hit 2011 movie Bridesmaids has been beautifully recreated in a fantastic new slot of the same name from Microgaming. Join bride to be Lillian and her team of bridesmaids as they seek to get Lillian’s big day off without a hitch in this fantastic new 5×4 reel, 40 payline slot.

As you would expect from a Microgaming film tie-in, this slot is lavishly endowed with video taken direct from the film and this helps bring the slot to life as well as adding plenty of smiles for the player.

Each of the five bridesmaids plus the bride are the base game high symbols and they are stacked on the reels. The base game itself rattles along at a nice pace with some genuinely nice touches but it is when you hit the three or more Cupcake scatter symbols and trigger the Wheel Bonus round that the action truly begins.

Spin the wheel and you can win a host of prizes including the Wedding Jackpot, a number of cash prizes, or you could also land on one of the fantastic four bonus games and find your fortune through them.

The first bonus game is Flying High which sees which sees you awarded 10 free spins with Growing Wilds and Rolling Reels in action to maximise your win.

The Friendship Free Spins round sees you receive 10 free spins, with wins paying left to right AND right to left doubling your chances of a payout. Lillian acts as a wild for Helen and Annie symbols completing winning paylines for either character in this special bonus round.

If you land on the Magic Moments box you get to pick from 10 pictures revealing cash prizes until you select Annie’s Carrot Cake which ends the bonus round.

Finally, the Boutique bonus allows you to match Bridesmaids to reveal prizes, but match the bride too soon and the round ends, although you can multiply all wins x3 if you are fortunate enough. Match all the bridesmaids before you match the bride and you’ll win the top prize.

Bridesmaids is a fantastic, fun and hugely enjoyable slot with a payout of 105,000 coins available and from just 0.40 per spin, is affordable enough for all to enjoy.

What is the easiest Video Poker Strategy to use?

Video Poker is perhaps one of the most underrated games in the modern online casino. It has a very low house edge, is easy for players to play and understand, relatively modest to play in terms of cost and has the potential to return a significant profit to players, who do not have to play against each other, just the poker machine.

Since its invention in the 1970s, Video Poker has grown into a huge game and many gamblers are now realising that it is a great game for them in terms of profit thanks to the generally low house edge.

Of course, key to achieving this profit is having a solid video poker strategy and fortunately, the strategy for video poker for a game as popular as Jacks or Better, is extremely simple.

All you need to do is to be able to look at your initial hand and decide which is the most valuable way to play that hand out of 16 possible options.

  1. Four of a Kind, Straight Flush or Royal Flush
  2. Four Cards towards a Royal Flush
  3. Three of a Kind, Straight, Flush or a Full House
  4. Four Cards towards a Straight Flush
  5. Two pairs
  6. A pair of Jacks or Better
  7. Three Cards towards a Royal Flush
  8. Four Cards towards a Flush
  9. A pair of cards from 10 down to 2 (any suit)
  10. Four Cards towards an Outside straight
  11. Two High Cards of the same suit
  12. Three Cards towards a Straight Flush
  13. Two High Cards of different suits
  14. 10/Jack, 10/Queen or 10/King of the same suit
  15. Any Jack or Better Card
  16. Discard all your cards

All you do is analyse your hand and then work out which of the options above offers the most value and follow the strategy shown.

For example, if you were dealt Ace, King, Jack of Clubs, a Jack of Hearts and a Seven of Clubs, this hand qualifies for.

  1. A Pair of Jacks or better
  2. Three Cards towards a Royal Flush and
  3. Four Cards towards a Flush

What you do is recognise the option with the higher ranking, in this case, it is the Pair of Jacks or better, and as such, you would keep the jacks and discard the remaining cards.

Learning this strategy is simply a case of being able to understand the above ranking of hands and then following the strategy that applies to it. In doing so, you can almost reduce the house edge in the game to less than half a percent.

So get started playing video poker with the easiest video poker strategy.
