Amazon Appstore's Free App of the Day, 6/3/2012: Mega Hearts 2 Slots has promised to make a paid app free every day in the Amazon Appstore, and today's app is Mega Hearts 2 Slots.

Mega Hearts 2 Slots is priced at $2.49 in Google Play; it is normally priced at $1.99 in the Amazon Appstore. As we've noted before, there are sometimes differences in pricing between the two marketplaces.

Mega Hearts 2 Slots is described as follows:
With sweet graphics and entertaining multilevel features, Mega Hearts 2 is a unique slot machine app. Can you win the Chocpot, a chocolaty jackpot treat?

How Sweet It Is

This is not just a straightforward slot machine game. By getting special symbols on a spin, you launch different modes, including Super Spins and the Mega Feature. Win prizes, free games, and cold (virtual) cash, leading up to the big Chocpot bonanza.

Three or more Hearts appearing anywhere on the reels trigger the Feature --15, 20 or 25 free games! If you won Super Spins during the Feature, they commence immediately. The bonus wheel starts automatically at the end of the Super Spins. Spin the wheel to win one of four different prizes.

This game is for entertainment purposes only. No real money can be won or lost. The odds of winning in this simulation are not the same as in real slot machines--it's much better!
Mega Hearts 2 Slots is rated at 4.1 stars in Google Play. It is rated at 3.3 stars in the Amazon Appstore.

This is the second consecutive app listed as the FAOTD in which the Amazon Appstore price is significantly lower than the Google Play price. It's an interesting trend, but the trend that has had for selecting rather boring apps, on the other hand, is discouraging.

To be honest, based on the description, it's somewhat surprising that the app has sold between 5,000 and 10,000 copies in Google Play. It's hard to see how a game such as this can keep your attention for any length of time.

Microsoft has filed an appeal against that trademark, saying the term is too generic. has responded to the lawsuit in the same manner.
