New slot – Cloud Quest by Play N Go plus big win video

Slot developer Play N Go recently released a new slot called Cloud Quest.

Unlike ordinary slot machines, this slot does not have spinning reels as such. Instead there is a 5 x 5 grid showing the symbols. A win is triggered by matching at least three symbols horizontally, vertically or diagonally. The winning combination is then removed from the grid and the remaining symbols tumble down (if applicable). On a win, the middle symbol turns wild and remains and tumbles on the screen.

The features can be triggered two ways.

The first way is by clearing the “bonus” line. Once that is done, you get up to 17 free spins on a 3 reel slot with a win potential of 100x bet.

The second way is via the wheel that is displayed on the right hand side of the slot. For each winning combination containing the special symbol, a segment of the wheels is lit up. The wheel at the end of the tumble then spins and if it lands on the lit symbol, one of the four features is triggered.

If the whole of the screen is cleared, a prize of 500x bet is awarded. If this were to happen during the 5x win feature on the wheels, the maximum pay out of 2,500x bet is achieved.

The slot has great potential as the below video shows. I had a great win at Videoslots casino clearing the screen for a £500 win. However, big wins are not given very often by the slot but it is not a balance drainer either with small wins very often awarded, keeping the balance ticking along nicely. I would say it is therefore a medium variance game.

Cloud Quest can be played at any of the following casinos that we recommend:

Maria Casino:

Unibet Casino:

Videoslots Casino:

When not to self exclude at an online casino

I recently experienced a problem when self excluding at an online casino and this post is to warn others not to self exclude at casinos unless you have a genuine gambling problem.

Back in 2015, I signed up at Betspin casino. Unbeknown to me, they charge a fee when making deposits when using a debit card. I don’t believe in this practice so I self excluded myself from the casino for a period of one year. The self exclusion would mean that no promotional material or contact from the casino would be made for this period of time.

Fast forward almost a year later, and a new casino entered the market: Rizk Casino. Not knowing that this casino was under the same license as Betspin (and as I later found out Guts Casino), I registered, took the deposit bonus and played this out unsuccessfully in terms of getting financial gain from it.

Some weeks later, I wanted to make another deposit only to find out that my account was blocked and to contact their live chat. I did just that and it was then that I found out that because I self excluded at Betspin, all the accounts under the same license were blocked which included Rizk and also Guts.

In all fairness to both Rizk and Guts casino, they did refund me the deposits as they are required to do under the terms of their license.

As an online gambler, you don’t always know which casinos are trading under the same license and for that reason I recommend you don’t self exclude from any online casino unless the reason for the self exclusion is because of a gambling problem.
