Yesterday, the much ballyhooed Excalibur 2 Slot Game on MyVegas was unveiled.

Prior to its release, the folks at MyVegas had released images (like the one below) showing the Princess dressed up in armor, wielding a long sword, and generally being a more “modern-minded” bad-ass medieval Princess.

Well……

There are a few differences between Excalibur 1 and Excalibur 2…… but they are pretty modest, and apart from the big red “2” at the top, at first, you might not know you are playing a different game.

Excalibur2

The Princess still waits in her tower for someone to climb the tower and deliver smooches, but this time it is the Dark Knight, instead of the Prince.  (woop)

Some of the icons on the reels are different. (woop)

The Fight Knight Bonus is exactly the same.

The “big” change seems to be that they have replaced the Date Knight Bonus with the Knights Of The Round Table Bonus Game, where you start by picking Red or Blue.  Then the Knights spin the round table, and when the spinning stops, whatever the bonus indicated by the Princess’s sword, you win.  If your color is on the winning spot, you get double the amount of Chips shown.

As far as a revision of the original game, I don’t know that it merited a re-issue. 

In my opinion, they could have had more fun pitting the Princess against either male protagonist in a revised Fight Knight, and again having the Princess pining in the Tower seems like they just ran out of ideas.

I’m not sure what compelled them to feel they needed to add another Slot Game that was SO similar to one they already had… but on the up side, it shows the folks at PlayStudios are still actively engaged and trying to make the MyVegas world better !!!

Good luck !!!

Yesterday, the folks at MyVegas started unveiling a new game: New York New York.

It is a 5 reel slot game that has been rolled out on a trial basis.

There are hot dogs, ice cream cones, ‘slices’ of pizza, pretzels, as well as some Characters: Buster Bob the construction worker, Tracey Trigger, Officer Harriet and the McFarmer family (from the Bet The Farm game)

In addition there are Bonus rounds:

The Uptown Bonus is where Sophia loses her poodle down a manhole… and Buster Bob has to choose which manhole to get Fifi out of. (And no, even though Fifi always falls in the first manhole, that doesn’t matter)

The Downtown Bonus is where you help Tracey Trigger crack the safe and grab the money out of the Armored Car.

At the bottom of the game is a street, with the McFarmers standing on the sidewalk.  As you get taxi icons showing up in your reel spins, the taxi picks up the McFarmers, and advances them one car space forward through the traffic light. (In the top image, the taxi is almost through the traffic light, and into free spin mode)

If you get two traffic lights and the taxi icon, you instantly advance through the stoplight, and start the Free Spin Bonus.

It seems that not everyone can play, yet, but hopefully they open it to everyone soon !

Good luck !!!

Bet The Farm is a multi-line slot game that has a series of Bonus Wheel games.

The crops on the reels grow, as they match. With successive matches, the crops can be harvested, and thus bonuses are gained.

When three Bonus Clouds show up on a spin, the clouds gather, and a Bonus Wheel appears.  On this spin, although the amounts vary, you can’t lose.

But, once you have that bonus, you have to choose to keep it and collect your award… or trade it in, and “Bet The Farm” !

There are prominent “Disaster” segments on the new wheel, and the prize amounts aren’t massive, so unless you hit a really small jackpot on the first wheel, it usually doesn’t appear to be worth the risk… because on the occasion of the wheel landing on Disaster, your farm and all the crops will be wiped out.  The other side of the gamble offers you the opportunity to gain farm elements, like windmills, ponds, water towers and such, and or cash.

There is also a smarmy snake-oil dude wanting to sell you disaster insurance… (can you guess my opinion on that option ?)

If you progress successfully through the second bonus wheel, you are offered another wheel, where every other spot is a Disaster segment… so I took my money and ran !!!
