King Neptune's Casino ( players are among the first on the Internet to pit their luck, and their wits against The Big Kahuna, a stunning new 5 reel, 9 payline video slot that is the most feature-rich game yet from the Microgaming studios, and comes on the facilities-laden Viper software platform.

Offering brilliant jungle graphics, a wide choice of low to medium denomination wager minimums and the potential for frequent wins in a fast-moving game with plenty of player interaction, this one is a thriller. Wild and Scatter symbols contribute to an exciting hit rate, with the real entertainment coming from the two major bonus features.

In the Volcano Bonus, the village chief awaits your decision on which offering will appease the hungry volcano's rumbling appetite, and save the island villagers from its fiery wrath. This is a simple 'Pick x or y' feature with good returns.

Then, hidden deep in the bowels of the mountain, the Magic Mask bonus and hopefully good fortune waits for the player to make his or her selections from ten Magical Masks. In this 'Pick until Pop' feature, the player can continue picking masks until a collect comes up. A consolation prize is also awarded, to make the experience still more fun for those making unlucky choices.

Gamblers will definitely feel the heat of the tribal beat at Big Kahuna, which once again raises the bar on top quality online gambling, at the same time giving gamblers a unique and exciting playing experience. Big Kahuna is the first Microgaming video slot to include these multiple bonus features.

Our second new game is a brand new American Hole Card style blackjack that offers BJ players across the board something a little different and a lot of fun. Bonus Blackjack, a completely new and easy-playing table game that is similar to Vegas Downtown Blackjack, but has the added attraction of an optional bonus side bet offering a wide wagering range with a minimum of $1 and a maximum of $25.

The side bet pay table gives 50:1on Jack and Ace Spade; 25:1 on Jack and Ace Suited and 5:2 on Suited Two Card Comb. In the rules, the Dealer peeks on cards with a value of 10 and Aces and the game is played with 2 regular decks.

Players have quick and easy access to a game rules pop-up through Microgaming's new 'mouse over' facility, and need only mouse over the plaque on the table that says Bonus Blackjack Rules. Presentation and smooth action on the new game are to high quality standards, with sharp, clear graphics and a no-nonsense layout.

Stud Poker gamblers are certain to enjoy our new table game. 3 Card Poker is a variant of the popular North American stud poker game that is easy to play, yet offers fast-paced and exciting action. The player can face off against the dealer by staking the Ante and Play bets, or stake the Pair Plus bet which pays out according to the rank of the cards in hand whether it beats the dealer's hand or not.

Crisp and straightforward graphics make playing the game, and viewing the play rules convenient and simple. The player merely mouses over the plaque on the table graphic that says 'Poker Rules' and a rules pop-up appears. To remove the pop-up, the player mouses off the area being displayed.

3 Card Poker suits most budgets with a minimum bet of 50 cents, and a maximum of $2.

Video poker players at King Neptune's can enjoy ten times the fun...and ten times the reward if their luck's in...on a brand new Aces and Faces game just added to the Power Poker gambling suite that enables gamblers to play ten hands at once, with a different 52 card pack for each hand.

Players get plenty of flexibility with this game and can wager between 1 to 5 coins per hand, or up to fifty coins at a time in denominations ranging from as little as a cent to two dollars. With top jackpots of US $ 80 000 possible the new game has good potential for some truly spectacular wins!

Scott Gaines, official spokesman for the Trident Group says that the new games follow extensive research into current gaming trends and player demand. 'Our goal is to offer the largest and best games selection we can find for our players.'

'Behind the razor sharp, high quality graphics and fast gameplay of all the new games is Viper, Microgaming's elegant, state-of-art gambling software that empowers the player with a host of optional assists, features and analytical information to enhance the gambling experience. No other software on the market offers as wide a range of facilities as this.' he says.

Viper's autohold feature can hold the best cards on a mathematical basis awaiting the player decision, and the analyser tables give guidance on current odds and cover permutations to help gamblers make the right decision - a facility not found elsewhere either in land or online operations. The Viper autoplay capability adds yet another new dimension to these exciting games, and players can set up their own 'stop' budgets by win amount, lose amount or credit balance.
