With Sports Betting now legal in the United States, a potential sports gambling revolution has been triggered and it is anticipated that by the year 2022, sports fans around the globe will be betting an amount of $1 trillion online each year.

One of the largest casino operators in the United States, Boyd Gaming, has 29 gaming properties in ten states and is currently positioning itself to be a major player in the sports gambling sector.

Boyd Gaming has enjoyed some special experiences in the Vegas Strip and has handled the biggest sportsbooks in Las Vegas over the past ten years.  The company is getting ready to branch out into a number of other regional markets now that sports betting is legal.

The company recently entered into an agreement with MGM Resorts, the casino chain that is endeavoring to corner the sports betting market.  Boyd Gaming and MGM Resorts have come to an agreement that will see them sharing online and mobile gaming apps for Boyd’s sportsbook in 15 states.  This is an unparalleled agreement that could be the start of a sports gambling empire, managed by Boyd Gaming and MGM.

Boyd Gaming has rolled out a new sports betting app, BConnected, in three casinos and has entered into a deal with FanDuel in terms of which it has leased out its gaming properties for FanDuel’s mobile and online sports betting platform.  This deal builds off of the company’s deal with MGM and covers all the states where Boyd Gaming holds gaming licenses, with the exception of Nevada.

Casino Jackpot

A lucky player has managed to hit the Age of the Gods Ultimate Power Jackpot, taking home a massive cash prize of $803,093.

The gambler’s win is the 64th hit on the game since the year 2010 when it was known as the Marvel Ultimate Power Jackpot.  Once Marvel and Playtech’s licensing deal expired, the prize shifted to the current name and is joined by a number of slots that match the theme.

The average amount won for the jackpot is $670,889 while the biggest amount was won at Titan Casino in 2011 when a lucky punter won an amount of $1,365,801.

The Age of the Gods Ultimate Power Jackpot is a progressive jackpot that can be won randomly by players while wagering on any of the ancient Greek inspired slot games in the Age of the Gods series available at Playtech casinos.

Ultimate Power seeds at €100,000 and is the biggest of three smaller Power Jackpots, namely the Power Jackpot, Extra Power Jackpot and Super Power Jackpot.

Players are required to play either the Age of the Gods, Fate Sisters, Furious 4, Goddess of Wisdom, King of Olympus or Prince of Olympus games in order to get the universal Bonus Round through which they can win the Ultimate Power Jackpot.  The Jackpot Round is triggered at random with no combination of wins or spins in any of the games giving players access to the game.  However, the higher players wager, the more chance they have of triggering the Bonus game.  Reaching the Bonus Round guarantees that players will win at least one of the four jackpot tiers.

Play’n GO has released a new mining-inspired slot game that focuses on the Gold Rush, titled Wild Falls.

Wild Falls Slot is a 5 reel and 20 pay line slot game that is set against a waterfall and is playable from 20p to £100 per spin in all devices.

Symbols on the reels of Wild Falls include rock-like A, K, Q, J and 10 playing cards as well as Axes, Lanterns, Gold Pans, Shovels and bags of Gold Coins.  The most rewarding symbol is the bags of Gold Coins that awards players with 125 times their stake for 5 on a pay line.

Chests in the new slot game act as Wilds and Scatters and appear only on reels 2, 3 and 4.  A Gold Rush feature is triggered randomly that sees all Chests become gold with multipliers (2x, 3x or 5x) for that particular spin as well as subsequent re-spins.

Three Chests appearing during the Base Game will give players access to the River of Gold Free Spins Feature where chests can stick and walk 1 space down with each free spin which continue until no more Chests remain on the reels.

The Super River of Gold Free Spins feature is activated if 3 Gold Chests appear on the reels during the Gold Rush feature.  All Chests remain gold with 2x, 3x or 5x multipliers with the free spins continuing until no Chests remain on the reels.

Chests and Gold Chests can combine to give players 125x multipliers with maximum payouts of 10,000 times players’ stakes available on every spin.

Mustang Gold Video Slot

Leading content provider Pragmatic Play has enhanced its portfolio by launching a new video slot game titled Mustang Gold.

Mustang Gold is a 5 reel and 25 pay line video slot that is set in the Wild West and is playable from between 25p and £125 per spin.

Symbols on the video slot include cowgirls, cowboys, a pair of wild mustangs and golden winning symbols such as horseshoes. The black horse pays 0.4, 2 or 20 times a player’s stake if 3, 4 or 5 appear on a pay line.  The Wild is the Logo symbol that substitutes for all other symbols with the exception of the Scatter and can hit anywhere except from reel 1.

Players head to a new screen in the Money Collect feature and pick from a selection of horse shoes. Players who also land a sheriff’s badge collect will win the amounts displayed on the horse shoes.

Landing the Jackpot Horse Shoe symbol anywhere on the reels plus the Sheriff’s Badge on reel 5 will trigger a Jackpot Reveal Bonus Game where players again pick horse shoes to reveal a jackpot symbol.  Players who match 3 of the same symbol stand to win the Mini, Minor, Major or Grand prizes that reward them with 50, 100, 200 or 1,000 times their total stake.

The Scatter is the Camp Fire symbol and landing this on reels 2, 3 and 4 on the same spin earns players a payout equal to their total stake and triggers the Free Spins feature with 8 free spins.

Mustang Gold offers maximum payouts of 12,000 times a player’s stake.

Mega Moolah Progressive Jackpot Slot

The progressive jackpot on Microgaming’s Mega Moolah slot game was last hit on the 28th September last year when a lucky player managed to win a record amount of $18,913,391.

The progressive jackpot has not been won for more than 98 days resulting in a long lapse and the current jackpot value is now massive and currently stands at an amount of more than £15,429, 994 and rising very quickly.

All slot players are, therefore, advised to wager on any of the Mega Moolah series of slot games with its overdue jackpot.  These games will definitely be worth playing, especially if the jackpot has not yet been won.

Microgaming has increased its game reach recently by announcing that a number of new operators are now using their gaming platforms and range of games and players will certainly not find it difficult to find an online or mobile casino that offers their progressive games.

Mega Moolah is an online progressive jackpot slot game that was introduced by Microgaming in 2006 and has since then made a large number of people millionaires, thanks to its huge jackpots.

Owing to the game’s success, Microgaming has released a number of other versions of the online jackpot slot game which include Mega Moolah 5 Reel Drive, Mega Moolah Summertime and Mega Moolah Isis.

Symbols on the reels of Mega Moolah include the regular A, Q, J, K, 9 and 10 as well as animal symbols such as the Giraffe, Lion, Elephant, Monkey, Antelope, Water Buffalo and Zebra.
