lobby-newlook-1-160.jpgAlthough has been around since the very beginning of online casinos, other than adding new games it has changed very little. For its 12th birthday this week, the slots and video site has launched a new look that shows off its selection of one-of-a-kind games, many with newly enhanced graphics and sound effects, even better. Special Birthday Bonuses this week invite players to join in the celebrations.

“Even players that told us to never change anything are telling us that they like this little facelift,” said casino manager Michael Hilary. “It makes it much easier to browse through the games. But the basic organization is the same and our design team has kept the same comfortable look and feel that the site has had since the beginning. It’s still black with white type!”

Players get a Birthday Bonus just by logging in between October 1st and 7th. The first time they do they’ll find a free $50 automatically added to their account. Then to top off the birthday celebration, there will be a random draw where 2 players will win $1,212, 12 players will win $112 and another 48 players will win $12. Each deposit during the birthday week is one entry in the draw. Bonus and contest details are posted on the site.

This summer, Slotland introduced new enhanced versions of five of its most popular games with improved graphics and sound effects. With stunning game graphics that fill the whole screen the new games make familiar favourites more fun than ever. The re-designed games have brief video tutorials to get new players started. Five spectacular new games debuted in July: Jacks of Better, Golden 8, Reel Riot, Treasure Box and Wild Heart video poker. Since then, the new Lucky Ducts has been added. currently features 16 one-of-a-kind slot machines and video poker games. Six of the most popular games are also available on mobile phones and PDAs. They’re all instant play casino games with nothing to download or install.

All of Slotland’s slot machines are tied to one progressive jackpot. Recently reset after two big wins this summer, the progressive jackpot is currently over $58,000. Meanwhile at Slotland’s sister casino,, the jackpot recently topped $100,000.
