When you have been working in this business for as long as we have, you get to know most of what goes on, and how things work. There are no game launches, big wins in jackpots
, new casino launches or the closing of a casino for that matter, that goes un-noticed by us. Hence it is only natural that we also get to see both strange and funny things too. So today, we thought we’d take a look at one particular thing that we have had our laughs over. We are going to take a look at strange casino games and strange themes for casino games that we have come across during our time in the business. This may present you with some interesting alternatives when you want to try out something new, or when you need an eye-popper after a long day. Enough babbling, lets get to it.
Most of these games you will find available to play on our best UK casinos
, like Guts and Betsafe, both of which we recommend without hesitation. The first game we find worthy of mentioning is a game with the disgusting name of «La Cucaracha». Perhaps it was inspired by the spanish children’s song with the same name. However, nothing about the music in the game indicates that it was. So, that leaves us with a slot with a repugnant theme, dominated by a cockroach, a nasty chilli pepper and a worm in a glass of tequila, or probably a glass of Mezcal. The game’s visual effects makes one expect a somewhat more noisy sound effect, but the mariachis in this game is, strangely enough of the more quiet type. To be honest, we were slightly let down. The game is owned my Microgaming, but was developed by Nextgen in 2011.
Our next game is called Karate Pig. This game is surreal. If you have seen the films Kung-fu Panda and you thought that was surreal, well then multiply it by ten. Because in this game you get a strange mixture of pigs from Old MacDonalds farm, a Maneki-neko cat, a golden Budai etc etc. So what do all these things have in common, one might ask. Apart from being in the same slot machine, nothing at all. However, personally we did prefer playing this slot compared to the La Cucharacha slot. It offers more surprises when it comes to the symbols used, but also in terms of prizes to win, as one can win up to 800 000 coins just in the free spins round.
You can play this slot at Guts Casino. It is worth trying out, but if you like slots with asian themes, there are better ones out there. Take a look at Monkey King for instance. And lastly we should mention that this slot is developed by Microgaming.
Hells Grannies, is another game also from Microgaming with the weirdest theme we have come across to date. These old ladies have knuckle tatoos with the text 'Grannies' on them. Plus there is a wall with the text “knit fast, die warm” on it, so yes it also turns a tiny bit macabre when these tough grannies visits your screen.
The game itself isn’t one of the best we have seen to be honest. But the graphics are way better than the two previous games, and that is indeed entertaining, so we do not mind losing some time spinning these granny wheels.
Perhaps we will elaborate more on this topic on a later time. But for the time being you can head over to Guts Casino or to Betsafe
, both very good casinos indeed and try out the games.
