SlotCharts Newsletter: Issue 4 (March 13, 2003)

In this issue:
1. Video Poker games now ranked by return!
2. Cash Splash ready to splashdown
3. Lucky Nugget offer, only 2 days left
4. MegaVault, from MegaJackpotMania
5. Blackjack.com paid up


The newsletter is a little early this time, and that's a first! These top two news items were just too good to wait.

1. Video Poker games now ranked by return!

If you're a video poker player, there's a new page at SlotCharts that you'll definitely want to bookmark. We've taken all of the video poker progressive games, and ranked them in order of their return percentages. At a glance, you can tell which games are offering more than 100% payback. The payouts are calculated using the "base" strategy for each game. That is, the best strategy for the game if it were not a progressive. That means that the actual return may be higher yet on the games, if you alter your strategy to go for the Royal more often as the jackpot rises. I figured it was best to stick to the baseline numbers, for comparison purposes.

2. Cash Splash ready to splashdown

In the last newsletter, I pointed out a ripe jackpot at WowPot, and it lasted only a few hours before being hit for over $41,000. Today we have a similarly overdue game. This time, it's the oldest progressive on the net, MicroGaming's Cash Splash. At press time, it's at $163,000 and climbing fast. This game has paid out a jackpot on a whopping 3398 previous occasions, and only twice before has it been this high. I predict it won't last the day. The SlotCharts score is up to 650. Check the home page first, to see if it's still ranked #1. http://www.slotcharts.com


3. Lucky Nugget offer, only 2 days left

Lucky Nugget, a MicroGaming casino has been running a great signup promotion for slot players, offering a "Buy $50/Get $200" deal. If you're planning to go after that Cash Splash jackpot, here's a great way to get some extra dollars in your account. As usual, it's for new account signups only.

I just got email from Lucky Nugget saying that this offer will be replaced at the close of the day on Sunday, with a still good "Buy $100/Get $150" deal. If you want the better bonus, be sure to sign up on or before Sunday, March 16, 2003.


4. MegaVault, from MegaJackpotMania

Yesterday brought the addition of the 118th game to SlotCharts. MegaVault, from MegaJackpot Mania is a new progressive slot that seems to hit once or twice a day generally. I haven't tried it myself yet, so if you give it a shot, let me know what you think.


5. Blackjack.com paid up

In the last newsletter, I mentioned that I was anxiously awaiting payment for a $4000 Royal Flush I hit at Blackjack.com. I'm glad to say that payment in full finally arrived in my Neteller account. It took 18 days, which is a bit much. I think I'll take them off my playing list, and concentrate my action at casinos which pay quicker. But, I'm glad that I've still never been stiffed by an online casino, and I've played at lots of them now.


Thanks for reading! Now, go hit a big one! -Ken-
