PartyCasino Cash Machine and Slot-tastic Sundays

Cash Machine

Claim your unlimited cash reward

Our brand–new PartyCasino.com promotion converts your PartyPoints into hard cash and it's programmed to pay out unlimited amounts of money to our players.

The Cash Machine runs from 00:00 ET on 9th November to 23:59 ET on 6th December. To get unlimited cash, just earn 10 or more PartyPoints on at least 10 days during the promotion. At the end of the promotion, we'll look at the PartyPoints you collected on your 10 highest–earning days, and give you $1 for every point earned on the lowest of those days.

How it works

If you earn the following points on your 10 highest points–earning days:

Three days at 100 points per day
Five days at 175 points per day
Two days at 150 points per day
Your lowest daily points total in this period is 100, which means we'll put a $100 cash reward directly into your Party Account.

Experience the power of the Cash Machine

You can opt in to the Cash Machine at any time. We'll use all the points you've earned since 9th November to calculate your prize at the end of the promotion.

Remember, every new day of the promotion gives you the chance to top your current lowest total and increase your cash prize. Keep playing to make sure you earn more.

You have 28 qualifying days, and your cash machine prize is only limited by the number of points you earn: if your lowest day's points total is 1,000 points, we'll give you $1,000. What you win is up to you.

Hulkamania Let The Battle Begin Star City Casino press conference gets out of control; Ric Flair attacks Hulk Hogan

Hulkamania Let The Battle Begin Star City Casino press conference gets out of control; Ric Flair attacks Hulk Hogan, by Greg Tingle - 18th November 2009

The press conference started friendly enough as most professional wrestling press conferences do.

Fans nor news media did not expect for things to get out of hand at Star City Casino, when Flair and Hogan got into a verbal fight that ended in physical violence and a bloodbath reminiscent of Mario Milano, Ron Miller, Mark Lewin, Abdullah The Butcher and The People's Army.

Numerous news media including Media Man captured the brawl with stills and video, and most Australian network news broadcasts will be running with the story tonight.

Even a professional photographer's camera flash was broken in the mayhem.

Hogan's head was a bloody crimson mess after Flair's punch and whipping with with his belt. Hogan landed hard on the floor and fellow wrestlers helped him to his feet after approximately 10 minutes of recovering. Many of the wrestlers present looked very concerned and helped Hogan get backstage for medical assistance.

Mr Flair and Mr Hogan have been engaged in a long running and heated feud, however this public exchange is understood to be the most violent to date.

Some wrestling insiders were overheard to have said; "Red turns to green" (blood turns to money), however numerous fans and media also noted that the attack was overdone and had "gone to far" and that "Flair shooted" on Hogan.

Hulk Hogan is still extremely excited to be touring and wrestling in Australia for the first time.

He advised the audience that other promoters in the past had billed him to tour Australia without his knowledge only to tell the fans that he could not make it.

Hogan is best known for his legdrop and "Hulkamanic's" while Flair's trademark's include Flair judo chops, figure four leglock, Flair flip and "Wooooo" taunt, something that Hogan is never likely to forget.

Hulkamania Let The Battle Begin officially starts at Sydney’s Acer Arena on the 28th of November.

The Hulk, Hulk Hogan injured in bloody Sydney brawl with Ric Flair and media - News Limited - 18th November 2009

WRESTLER Hulk Hogan has been badly injured after a violent bloody brawl broke out at The Hulkamania promotional press conference at Star City today.

The press conference veered violently out of control today as Hulk Hogan and ring rival Ric Flair let their animosity break into a full scale bloody brawl.

Sydney Central’s photographer Phil Rogers has his flash broken when Ric Flair threw a table off the stage and into the press gathering before diving on photographers. See the photo of the Hulk.

Media were stunned as the Hulk’s head began bleeding profusely and confusion broke out when the veteran wrestling star was unable to get to his feet.

This reporter narrowly missed being struck with the table and photographers ducked and weaved as Ric Flair took off his trouser belt and began to whip anyone within range.

The press conference began well with the stars of the tour speaking professionally about their careers and the business.

Media Man comments

The press conference started in a professional and friendly fashion. As the conference progressed Mr Hogan and Mr Flair started exchanging words and temperatures rose to an extent that Flair finally physically attacked Hogan, with Hogan and his table falling off the stage. A media frenzy followed with many fans shocked and starting chanting Hogan's name, and he was assisted to the back for medical attention. Both media and fans speculated with each other as to how much of the press conference may have been scripted, and how much really got out of hand. In any event, it was an entertaining and wild affair, and only adds to the Hulk Hogan VS Ric Flair series of matches in Australia being a "don't miss" attraction. Wooooo!

Casino, Poker, Bingo, Table Games, Hollywood Slot Games, Casino Classics: PartyGaming Does It All, by Greg Tingle

PartyCasino, PartyPoker, Club World Poker Tour - London Stock Exchange powerhouse - meet the Ace of the igaming world

The world's leading igaming company, PartyGaming is on a roll as of late.

Having come to terms with the United States Department of Justice earlier this year, PartyGaming have become quite the darling of the igaming, gaming and news media world.

PartyGaming has been on a purchasing and acquisitions mission recently picking up Cashcade and World Poker Tour, and is poised to come to more major business deals in the Asia Pacific and South American regions. It's global strategy also sees Party eyeing off India and France, whose government's appear open, even positive, to see a deal inked. PartyGaming has also been able to talk shop with Australia's Crown Casino resulting in sending online poker players in the direction of Crown's Aussie Millions Poker Tournament via its celebrated PartyPoker.com brand.

As PartyGaming CEO, Jim Ryan, has pointed out a number of times this financial year, PartyCasino is a key driver in the business and the Hollywood themed online slot games have been a huge success, as has their "Live Dealer" product, enabled by Evolution Gaming. While PartyCasino secured the rights to WagerWorks classic titles last year, Cleopatra, Monopoly and Cluedo, Party was able to build the portfolio with its own in-house team.

Online poker remains the company's bread and butter, despite PartyPoker.com not currently accepting U.S customers. However, Party's purchase and running of Club WPT means that United States citizens can now enjoy a PartyGaming product without any question of legals. The World Poker Tour brand will also almost certainly enable PartyGaming to facilitate some major news media and television deals, which will further grow the company's bottom line and brand.

Casino fans... now the information you've been waiting for... more world class online slot games are on the cards for PartyCasino, following the recent releases, Tarzan, Sinatra, High Noon, Resident Evil and The Naked Gun. Names being speculated include Andre The Giant, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, The Expendables, The Sopranos, Sonic, Underbelly, Hilton, UFC, TNA and Marvel. Again, those brands are speculation, but some of these have made print, and as they say, where there's smoke, there's fire! PartyGaming already offers four Marvel themed online slot games and the Marvel Hero Jackpot, and modern classic, The Godfather, remains one of the most popular slots networked into the world famous Gold Mega Jackpot, currently exceeding $4 million dollars! If you got excited by Cleo, Rambo and Tarzan, just wait till you see what lurks around the corner. Australia's NextGen Gaming has been teasing some journalists and insiders on some massive brands going live on PartyCasino, and that's no spin. The online casino brand also offers 24/7/365 support and comes in a wide range of multi currency and multi language options. Not convinced yet? Players and potential players can also play for free or play for money, so you know your in safe hands.

PartyGaming is listed on the London Stock Exchange and has been operating for over a decade, which is like a lifetime in the gaming world. PartyGaming has also made this year's eGaming Review shortlist for a number of awards and commendations. In addition, PartyGaming and its PartyCasino and PartyPoker brands have made the Media Man and Casino News Media shortlist for end of year awards.

While some of PartyGaming's competitors are putting out some impressive products from time to time, those in the know state that there is only one PartyGaming and that their track record of stability, service, security, innovation and fun speaks for itself.

*the writer has a b2b agreement in place with a number of PartyGaming brands, as they do with dozens of brands in the gaming and igaming sector, the details of which are commercially sensitive in nature.

PartyGaming's PartyCasino and PartyPoker In Line For More Awards, by Greg Tingle - 12th November 2009

As we head towards the end of 2009 and the igaming industry remains as competitive as ever, it shouldn't surprise anyone, punter, newbie or industry veteran, that PartyGaming and its PartyCasino and PartyPoker brands are in line for more industry awards and commendations.

PartyGaming remains the world’s leading listed online gaming company. Founded in 1997, the
Group has its shares listed on The London Stock Exchange.

Coming off a wave of momentum with its successful purchase of World Poker Tour (WPT Enterprises) last week, Cashcade a number of months ago, and the release of a swag of new slot games, the company is tipped to continue domination of the gaming and igaming world.

Party's awards and commendations include eGaming Review Operator Of The Year and Socially Responsible Operator Of The Year. In addition PartyCasino has been awarded the Media Man - Casino News Media Online Casino Of The Month (numerous times).

The company also achieved inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index Series.

As the company looks forward to the new year they look to continue innovation, value for money, world class service, and growth into new geographic regions including South America, Indian, France and the Asia Pacific.

PartyGaming will continue to revamp its websites including it's ever growing PartyCasino.com site, thanks to the frequent games being added and its newly acquired Club WPT website, certain to have a more PartyGaming look and feel being added in the coming months.

PartyGaming is poised to make more inroads into the United States coming off the back of its purchase of WPT Enterprises (U.S residents can play online poker on the Club World Poker Tour website without potential legal complications) and PartyPoker.com and World Poker Tour ambassador, Mike Sexton, has just been inducted into the Poker Hall of Fame in Las Vegas and had nothing but praise for the PartyGaming family.

World Poker Tour Changes Name to Ante4 - 6th November 2009

World Poker Tour Enterprises, which recently completed the sale of its World Poker Tour to an international gaming company, on Friday announced that it had changed its name to Ante4 Inc.

It will trade on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange under the ticker ANTF on Monday, at which time the World Poker Tour’s WPTE ticker will cease to exist.

Steve Lipscomb, founder of the World Poker Tour, said he has money in the bank and a revenue stream from royalties on future poker tournaments as the result of the sale. He plans to buy or merge with another operating company in the future.

“We have one really great employee.” Lipscomb told the Business Journal, referring to himself. “We are looking for opportunities that will maximize shareholder value, but have nothing to announce at this time.”

PartyGaming Media, an online poker company based in Gibraltar, purchased World Poker on Nov. 2 after shareholders from both companies approved the acquisition.

World Poker’s 35 employees now work for PartyGaming at the former WPT offices at 5700 Wilshire Blvd.

Chris Welch, PartyGaming’s chief marketing officer, said the new owners plan to continue producing poker tournaments with the same personnel. (Credit: Wires, Google News, WSJ, MediaMan)

Virgin Games Launch The Price Is Right and Super Hoot Loot

VirginCasino.com Release More New Classic Slots

Profiles

The Price Is Right

Based on one of television’s most popular game shows, The Price is Right slot will have you spinning and grinning.

The Game

The game is a five-reel slot machine with 3 DIFFERENT BONUS FEATURES to multiply your winnings. During the regular play, the goal is to achieve a winning combination of symbols on any of the selectable lines. Payouts depend on the number of coins played and the winning combination of symbols achieved. The theoretical average return to player (RTP) is 96.646% with BIG WHEEL ON and 95.426% with BIG WHEEL OFF


Super Hoot Loot

Introduction

Foxes and eagles and giant multipliers - Oh my! There's a whole forest of excitement in this 40-line game. Get a winning combination on the special Loot Line® and watch that win get multiplied up to 200x! That'll give you something to hoot about!

Any reel symbol with an owl gets copied from the reels onto the Loot Line®, where outcomes are evaluated just like regular payline outcomes. However, Loot Line® awards are boosted by a massive multiplier equal to the number of credits bet. The bigger your stake, the higher your multiplier.

Super Hoot Loot™ features two wild symbols: the Wild Super Hoot Loot symbol and the 2x Wild Owl symbol. All payline wins involving the 2x Wild Owl symbol are doubled! Also, every 2x Wild Owl symbol on the reels gets copied to the Loot Line®, giving you the chance to double the already massive Loot Line® multiplier.

In the Free Games feature, the Loot Line® is seeded with an automatic 2x Wild Owl. Not only are you much more likely to achieve meaty Loot Line® wins, but your Loot Line® award multiplier is guaranteed to be twice as big - up to 400x!

In the past few weeks Virgin has released many exciting new slot games including Cubis, Ramesses Riches, Emerald Isle, Irish Eyes, Dolphin Reef, Dragon Master, Bejeweled, Rainbow Riches: Win Big Shindig and The X Factor: Steps To Stardom, with more slot games on the way including the famed Marvel super heroes!
