Play’n GO's pokie Bell of Fortune closely mimics the style and design of an old-time one-armed bandit that might be found in the gambling haven that is Las Vegas, or indeed any other real-life casino. With three reels and just the one payline, the stakes are raised and the tension heightened in this nail-biting pokie. Collecting winning fruit combinations will pay out some pretty decent wins; however, collect three bells with the max bet and hear them chime as you win the elusive jackpot!

In the past RealTime Gaming casinos were not available to Mac users because players were forced to download the casino client. This is an issue of the past. Jackpot Capital Casino is available both in instant play or you can download the client. As always, the client proves to be the better option, but the instant play version looks pretty good. We were skeptical about it, we thought it was going to be full with glitches. We were so wrong. It worked smooth.
Your highest-paying standard symbols are the male and female fighter pilots, and these will reward you with $2, $15, $100 and $500 for 2-, 3-, 4- and 5-of-a-kind respectively.

There are no true bonus games on Lotsaloot pokies, although players can still increase their winnings thanks to a few features. Since the Lotsaloot logo is wild, it can take the place of any symbol, and if it results in a win then the payout is doubled. If two Lotsaloot logos complete a winning combination, then the payout is quadrupled. Unfortunately, this is the extent of the special symbols on the game. This may be viewed as a negative by some, while others will appreciate the fact that the pokie isn’t as complicated as other online gaming options.
