Dreaming of jetting off to Ibiza for a carefree summer? We thought so – but you'll probably need wads of cash to live the dream. One option is to have a few sessions on the Millionaire Genie pokie from Random Logic. Playable from a penny to 10.00, Millionaire Genie has a mystical theme with echoes of Aladdin.
It's packed with sacred symbols such as books, gold and keys, the magical genie and mysterious belly dancing women in the royal palace. Triggering the belly dancer bonus lets you enter the palace and select a dancer who can reward you with treasure. The game's playable in full progressive jackpot mode, which can payout millions, or non-progressive mode, which can still payout 1500.00.

Royal Ascot is the highlight of the summer horse racing calendar and it's coming again on June 19, 2018. Frankie Dettori's Magic Seven from Playtech is based on the jockey's heroic seven winners in a row at Ascot back in 1996. If you love horse racing then this game is a real blast, with graphics that bring the glory of the turf to life across five reels and 25 paylines.Spinnable from .01 to 1250, even the staking reflects one of the gambling world's most magical events. Galloping sounds and the thrill culminate in a 'pick your horse' bonus game and the Dettori jackpot, which is worth an amazing 7,777x your spin size!
If you're willing to pony up some dough for a chance at the winner's circle, head over to Genting.
If you've been caught up in the wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, then you'll want to give The Royal Family pokie a celebratory spin. New for 2018 from Yggdrasil, the game is spinnable with pauper bets of 0.25 to princely ones of 200.00. These guys and girls really know how to pay homage in tongue and cheek style, because the game has a brilliant 3D pomp to it.
The gaudy characters might have Ma'am saying she's not impressed (thankfully – we are!). And she surely would be if she activated the game's free spin bonuses, which can go wild to deliver payouts as big as 100-times your spin. If you want a shot at living like a king or queen, give this pokie a try at LeoVegas.
Also from Yggdrasil, The Dark Joker Rizes is the antidote to your royal overdose. The game has a modest bet size, ranging from 0.10 to 20.00, with max jackpot levels of 12,000. As the name suggests, this game has a dark and sinister feeling and look to it, set across five reels and ten paylines. Released in 2015, it has something of a cult following, with the joker's appearance delivering mystery wins when three or more are matched – progressing from 1,000 to 6,000 coins.
Smaller joker matches trigger the Jokerize mode, where you can risk 20 coins a spin, with enhanced odds of winning; two or more joker icons payout from 20-6,000 coins. You can even select a Super Bet for 200 coins within Jokerize mode, guaranteeing at least one joker.
