China’s crackdown of ‘illegal’ online gambling sites gained fresh momentum when the government ordered all state-run telecommunications carriers to block VPN operations within 6 months. The government first announced its crackdown on foreign-based online gambling companies with a 14-month timeline. The new date for the VPN block is set for 1 February 2018.

Despite of somewhat misleading name, the slot has nothing to do with Kubrick’s cult movie, which may or may not be a good thing, depending on personal preferences. The game features a standard 5×3 grid with 20 paylines spread across the reels. The Clockwork Oranges bag filled with coins is the main symbol and it comes stacked on the reels, opening doors for some serious wins. Unlike most of the similar slots, this one doesn’t offer a free spins round.
