The world of online casinos seems to be shrinking with the recent announcement of 888 Holdings taking over Bwin Party who themselves were only formed in 2011 after a merger of Bwin and Party Gaming but then both of those companies still operate an online casino of their own and although it is early days 888 are suggesting that no changes will be forthcoming in the near future. Casinos.ie will take a closer look at that takeover as more details emerge and keep readers informed. On the other side of the coin there are also new online casinos which have come to market in the last 12 months or so which offer some refreshing alternatives to the big boys such as All Irish Casino which caters specifically for the Irish casino market although of course it is accessible to anybody who enjoys online casino play. All Irish casino uses one of the large players in the casino software market namely NetEnt or Net Entertainment to give them their correct name which gives them some different casino games particularly in the area of casino slots. Casinos.ie particularly likes Jackhammer or Jackhammer 2 both of which have the sticky wins feature as well as wilds and free spins. The sticky win feature at All Irish casino is one in which all symbols which are part of a winning combination are held while all other symbols are spun again and this continues until the wins are not increased anymore and this happens automatically without any further stakes per line being placed. Other online casinos that use this same casino software are No Bonus Casino and Freespins Casino and these are also interesting in their approach with No Bonus Casino offering cash back instead of a joining bonus and freespins casino offering a number of free spins on certain casino slots for each and every deposit made into your online casino account.
