Last month we took it upon ourselves to release a couple of slots but this month we wanted to give our punters a feast of slots to enjoy. That is why both the SkillOnNet and WMS software teams were hard at work creating games for April in March.”
“The games that are to be released will offer a variety of experiences, giving something that every punter can enjoy.

Cash Splash is a 5 reel, 15 payline video slot designed to resemble classic slot machines. The game features one jackpot that is constantly expanding. The game also boasts features such as wilds, giving punters the opportunity to land on multiple winning combinations in one spin.
Microgaming has yet to reveal any information pertaining towards where this jackpot was triggered or who won the jackpot. Microgaming did make a statement saying, “Cash Splash is one of the most popular slots that we have ever created. Once this slot became popular amongst online gamblers the jackpot was triggered once a week, averaging a $50,000 jackpot win. It’s wonderful to know that you are changing the lives of multiple punters every year through a simple slot such as Cash Splash. The punter who triggered this jackpot will not reveal his name to the public in order to avoid potential issues, he has said that he plans to use the money he has won towards a vacation and new car.”
The Cash Splash jackpot is triggered on a weekly basis, every four days one punter gets to land on this incredible jackpot. The punter who triggered the $100,973 jackpot win got lucky as it has been ten days since the jackpot was last triggered, thus by allowing for the amount of the jackpot to increase by half of its regular amount.
The Coalition for Consumer and Online Protection, a pro online gambling group announced that they have published a new report which shows that the majority of citizens within the United States of America don’t agree with the federal banning of online gambling in their country.
Through the poll the coalition was able to gain a percentage of citizens who want online gambling to be regulated and legalized throughout their country. 75% of US Citizens believe online gambling should be legalized while the other 25% agree with the federal banning of all online gambling.
The Coalition for Consumer and Online Protection commented on the release of their survey saying, “If the United States Government places a federal banning on online gambling they will destroy a reborn industry in Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey. Once again the government will be taking away a state’s main source of tax revenue. If the United States Government were to legalize online gambling they along with every state within the country would be able to bring in a considerably larger amount of revenue in their taxes.”
The only issue with these surveys is that multiple coalitions such as the coalition owned by Sheldon Adelson also posts reports that shows the majority of US Citizens not wanting legalized online gambling. Their reports contradict one another, we are unsure as to where the future of online gambling within the United States of America stands but we do know it won’t be banned across the board.
