Oh dear! I wouldn't want to be in their shoes right now

Even for a slot with a "twisted" reel layout, each reel position has an equal chance of being on the "stop" after each spin.
The content of the deck is crucial. This is not a standard deck, and somewhere it's content should be specified. So far, it seems to be nothing more than a "short" deck, with all cards below a certain value removed. There are casino table games using such decks, and what is left is expected to be randomly dealt, and in the quantities expected from a "short" deck. If three such decks are combined to make the playing deck, it would STILL have equal quantities of each number, such as 12 Aces, 12 Kings, etc, 4 from each of the 3 decks used.
To pay 100x for AAA, it would have to pay far lower for 999 than the natural odds.
If it is cheating by weighting certain cards, it is not even a "twisted" slot, it is a "rigged game", and should NOT be promoted as "random" as it is in the marketing copy from the software supplier. A game of this type is considered to be "cheating" unless the weighted nature of the results is made perfectly clear in the rules.
Bet365 didn't code the game, but they should have tested it before it was given the "good to go" for their customers.
Trust me, I'm a weatherman.
