Qiu Qiu In the Spotlight
Lasseters logoAfter spending almost $2 million on redevelopment, Lasseters.com, Australia’s largest and longest-running online casino, has recently launched a revamped version of their Web site complete with a new look, better graphics, faster downloads and a greater gaming selection. “Site improvements and modifications such as these allow Lasseters Online to be more responsive to players’ demands for new and improved games,” says Peter Bridge, Managing Director of Lasseters. “It also significantly reduces the amount of time our players spend with site housekeeping and provides faster and simpler access to their winnings.”

In addition, Qiu Qiu players are now able to download Flash technology from Lasseters Online, allowing them to maximize the benefits of the new site. Individual games can now be downloaded in around one minute, and players need no longer install the entire suite of games prior to registering.
The upgrade has also nearly doubled the number of games available, raising the total from eleven to twenty-one. Joining the existing games (which include Blackjack, Roulette, Sic Bo, and Video Poker) are Baccarat and Nine Slots, themed with a unique mixture of traditional Las Vegas flair, fantasy, and sports. Betting ranges on the games start from as low as 1 cent to a maximum of $50 per spin. Additional slot games that will introduce a range of new bonus and free game features, and the addition of popular substitute and scatter symbols, are currently being developed.
Lasseters is Australia’s first government-licensed and regulated online casino, and the company brings more than twenty years of land-based casino experience to the world of Internet wagering. With updated software comes a whole new level of gaming entertainment and I look forward to even more promise in the near future.
A Guide to the Hottest Online Action – El Casino
A new entrant into the online gaming fray, Elcasino delivers a powerful combination of superior graphics, gaming selection and player incentives.
In an effort to create a “…rich, authentic casino environment,” Elcasino has put together a site replete with 3-D graphics, game performance, sound effects, and background music that are among the Internet’s finest. Thirteen of the most popular casino games are available in their Boss Media powered software package including Blackjack, Craps, Pai Gow Poker, Progressive Caribbean Stud Poker, American and European style Roulette, Keno, and an assortment of Slots and Video Poker machines.
A highlight of Elcasino is the excellent multi-player game software that allows players to chat with one another in real time while playing their favorite games. In this multi-player format, up to five players can play Blackjack at a single table and four can play Roulette. In addition, Blackjack players have the option of playing as many as three hands simultaneously. Of course if gambling in a group doesn’t appeal to your reticent nature, you can always opt to sit at a private table. These private tables allow players to take on the house one-on-one or to reserve seats only for friends or family.
Finally, Elcasino offers a nice selection of comps and player bonuses including a 100% initial deposit bonus, referral bonuses, and a “Happy Fridays” program where they give $50 to tenrandomly selected players every week. They also offer a VIP membership to returning players. These VIP members can take advantage of additional promotions and lucrative bonuses throughout the year and are guaranteed first-class service and advanced access to casino news and information. Unfortunately for most players, VIP membership works on an “invitation only” basis. Players are invited into the VIP Club only after they have deposited a total of $10,000 during their membership at ElCasino.com. While this does put the VIP program out of bounds for most online players, those who can afford it can benefit from the many promotions.
