New gambling games are introduced on an almost daily basis in casinos around the world.
Most of these new games are slot machines, but video poker variations and other types of games are being developed also.
Here’s a quick overview of some of the newest games you should try the next time you have a chance.
Game Star Video Poker from IGT
The Game Star is a video poker machine from IGT that has 7 new games in one cabinet. You choose which game you want to play when you sit down and single hand and multi hand options are available.
Here’s a list of the seven video poker games you can play:
- Stud Choice Poker
- Dual Action Poker
- Flush Fever Poker
- Extreme X Poker
- Lucky Quads Wheel poker
- Look Ahead Poker
- Super Look Ahead Poker
In Stud Choice Poker you get to pick from two hands and then play five, six, or seven card stud. The 5 card stud pay table is better than the 6 card, etc. When the game starts you pick between two different two card hands, and then pick the pay table you want to use. Then the rest of the cards are dealt and the hand is completed.
When you play Dual Action Poker you play a single hand of poker and can win on two different pay tables. Your best hands will be paid from both pay tables.
Flush Fever Poker has a feature where any hand resulting in four to a flush automatically redraws for an extra chance to hit. If you land four to a flush in the bonus game the hand redraws until you hit a flush for a guaranteed win.
Any time you hit a full house or better while playing Extreme X Poker you unlock the fever games and a multiplier.
Lucky Quads Poker awards a special spin of the wheel for any four of a kind or five of a kind hand.
Look Ahead Poker is a neat concept that I’m surprised took this long to find its way into a video poker game. When you bet the maximum coins you can see the next card to be dealt. This adds an interesting strategy decision to the game.
Super Look Ahead plays the same as Look Ahead Poker except you can burn the next card in the deck if you don’t like it.
Peek & Play Poker from IGT
The Peek & Play video poker game from IGT is designed to give players a greater feeling of being in control and being able to alter the outcome of the game through strategy.
While playing Peek & Play you can pay a fee, called a buy a pay feature, to peek at the next card in the deck.
The game is loosely based on the popular Jacks or Better game with the minimum paying hands being jacks or better and two pair, each paying 5 coins for a 5 coin wager. The top payout is 4,000 coins for a royal flush.
New Bally Slot Machines
Bally is one of the biggest slot machine manufacturers in the world and they keep putting out great new games. Here’s a list of some of their new slots games with a little bit of information about each.
I’m not a big slots player but I like to see the new games and designs that slots companies come up with. They need to keep designing bigger and better games to keep players interested and coming back for more.
Betty Boop’s 5th Avenue – A 5 reel 30 pay line slot machine using the popular Cash Wheel Bonus system. The game has a shopping theme and has three different jackpot possibilities.

Blazing 777 Triple X – Blazing 7’s is a throwback to the simple times in the slot machine industry. With only three pay lines and three reels this is my kind of machine. But instead of just being a plain Jane machine, it has a progressive jackpot and random multipliers of up to 5 times.
Diamonds of Dublin – The Diamonds of Dublin slot machine has three reels and a fancy green theme with shamrocks and diamonds everywhere. It has a set jackpot and the shamrock acts as a wild symbol.

Even though casinos have lots of traditional games like blackjack and roulette, take a few minutes to check out the new games every once in a while. After all, the first time you played blackjack it was new to you. How will you ever find a new favorite game if you don’t see what’s available?
