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.
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.
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 !!!
Today, MyVegas introduced another Slot game to its assortment – the Mirage Secret Garden Dolphin Habitat Slot Game.
With an assortment of dolphins, trainers and macaws… “Oh my !!!”
Like the other MyVegas slot games, it is a 3 x 5 30-line slot reel.
The tiles feature tropical drinks, sardines, macaw food, the Mirage Hotel, as well as character tiles for a dolphin trainer, a macaw trainer and the combined animal tile of Tiki the White Tiger, Mickey the Macaw and Daphne the Dolphin.
The first game feature is the Dolphin Jump Hi/Low Bonus, where (after getting five dolphin jump bonus icons, shown in the bottom line, above) Daphne the Dolphin has to jump and pop 5 suspended balloons. Before each jump, you have to pick whether the next number will be higher or lower than the previous number. (The numbers range between 1 and 10) If you are correct, you advance. If you are wrong… well… back to the beginning.
This game has more “stuff” going on than say, the more predictable Studio City slot game, which runs better “unattended.” But it certainly has a few different things going on.
The “other” section of the bonus rounds involves Mickey the Macaw advancing up the palm tree to the ‘bonus’ coconuts. He moves upwards, every time a Free Spin Bonus Macaw tile appears (see below)
Good luck !!!
