So the scenario is you've got £1000 and have decided to try a quick hit and run to try and double your roll to 2K.

You've decided that your minimum bet size will be £20 but more if you decide.

Which machines would you choose?

Here is what I think is my answer:-

Wonky Rabbits - £30 a spin

Lot of quick hit potential on this machine. Walk after first > x10 win with wild.

Fruit Case - £20 a spin

Catch it right and you'll get some game time and the potential for decent wins from normal play. Hit a free spins and you're in heaven. Walk after a > x20 win.

Golden Ticket - £40 a spin

Lot of potential to bust out on this but get a bonus round and you can expect a > £700 return. Decent run into the bonus round can be 2k+

Note: I'd avoid energoonz. Seems to have longer dead streaks.

Fisticuffs - £20 a spin

Play for first wild bonus and hope its a good one. Walk once complete regardless of win size.

Gemix - £50 a spin

Whatever the outcome you'll get lots of playtime even at those stakes. Walk after first supercharged win or anything > £300 profit.

Interested to see what others think.

Cheers

Interesting thread.
I would defo play Netent slots when staking that kind of amounts,simply because I think you get the most game time on their slots regardless of your stake and bankroll.
I would play Lost Island / Attraction / Wild Rockets / Secret of the Stones, maybe a risk but the hit potential on these slots is very good.
Had a few very good hits on these slots on €1.00-€2.00 stakes.

I would not play other software like MGS or WMS as they simply can take way too long before triggering a bonus.
Last year I was up 2k at a certain casino and played Kronos and Bierhaus on €20.00 a pop and well €500.00 was gone very quickly LOL...Still cashed out a very decent profit but I was hoping to hit a biggie on those €20.00 bets. :p

Novomatic slots (Book of Ra, Lucky Lady Charm, Katana) are being played also at very high bets by high rollers because of the very big win potential in FS rounds but way too volatile if you just gonna do it as a once off.

Just my 2 cents. :)

I'd say your own summary is quite o.k., although in my experience it's just the other way around regarding Energoonz and Golden Ticket:) I think in that last Wonky Wabbits i's the worst option though. Regardless of the win potential, you also have the largest likelihood it will give you 50 dead spins...

My personal attempt with a 1K BR to spare, deffo, Dead or Alive at 9,- a pop! Regardless of how long it takes: double up (or more), or bust, would be my scenario.

I also would consider a Quickspin slots session, with "only" 10,- Euro average spins, preferably on Epic Journey, the new Second Strike, or one of their streaky med variance slots (Jewel Blast, FireStorm or Illuminous)

There's so much fun to be had with a 1K BR though:)

If it's something your going to do, then please keep us posted!

Well, if that were me I would look at playing a Progressive jackpot game. Much against general opinion, I do have a soft spot for the Playtech Marvel games (Spiderman probably out on top) and a bonus round can yield good returns. Add in the chance of the progressive jackpot round ( I have had 4 chances on this round so far - best return was £1800) and a shot for a current jackpot of £80k. All my progressive chances came from £2.50 spins, so more chance getting picked if wagers are higher.

I'm with incrediblestuff here - my experience is the opposite (and I play both quite a lot).
At first I thought they were exact clones - I've not looked into this, but I think they could be.

I agree with your choice of low-variance games for a quick "Hit and Run" - though you're not very likely to make a huge profit.

If it were me (and it wasn't MY money), I would bet big on South Park, Evolution or Jack and the Beanstalk.

Are you actually going to do this crazy betting? :confused:

Steam Tower for a quick feature at £20.
Blood Suckers £25. Decent coffin or free spins will give you enough.
Sugar Pop (Betsoft) you can even play £50-£100 per spin because it's extremely low variance but has a rather competitive house edge. Will give you a win on almost all spins but rarely a big one. Could even spin £200 if allowed.

Basically all low variance games with a colossal betsize might do the trick.

And by the way. The best chance to hit your target is Blackjack. £500 per hand. If you lose play slots with the remaining balance.

Is it really that crazy? :-/ It's something I do from time to time but not always following a predetermined plan and not always £20+. Maybe I'll pull my play history from last night and show.

I think your machine choices are very likely to end in bust. South park will eat coins quickly at high stakes....jack will slowly eat you....evolution... I'd guess the same. That said...I hit free spins on that slot @ £100 a spin and banked my biggest win from a slot of just over 10k. Roll saving spin too....imagine!

@lotusch

I think those choices are hella crazy :) Play any of those @ £20 a spin and see how much it sucks and how quickly you bust out. Maybe you have a better chance to go beyond 2k if you get the hit but I'd guess you bust more times than winning.

I'll start another thread on this because it's worthy of its own but certain netent games are absolutely dreadful once you crank up the bet size and I think your choices fall into that category.

given your bet size you will only get 40 to to 50 spins, no? Maybe even less with some of the choices.

Is there a chance of hitting anything big with 40 50 spins. Or given the bet size even the smallest win will double your bank roll. All random as they keep telling us...

If you go ahead and do this Let us know how you do. Very curious. :cool::)

@stevie,

Yes not so many spins so I think machine selection is key. With 1k you can't be getting involved with some that bonus once every 150 spins.

I'm not sure if I'll actually run the above...it was meant to be a more a rough guide as to how I would approach such a challenge and I'm interested how much as others would.

But I will say that I played all of those bets last night so if a get a moment I'll see if I can pull my gaming history to see how I did. From memory I hit wonky, golden ticket and fruit case and small losses on fisticuffs and gemix. In terms of game play gemix was probably the best and wonky gave the biggest win....two wilds expanding to four on spin 5. Exactly the start you need.

it only takes one spin to win :)

Well it was just a personal opinion mate. ;)
That would be slots I'd choose as I have good experiences with them, even if these were on moderate €1.00 - €2.00 bets.
Lost Island for example is rock steady for me and I am up at nearly every casino I have played this slot with some amazing hits in the FS rounds. :thumbsup:

Hope I didn't offend you chief - wasn't my intention :)

Re: lost island....I recently had a bad session on that so I've got bad memories. The amount of two scatters was heartbreaking :'-(

Interesting others mentioned steamtower. That slot has been semi hot for me lately and I hit lvl 7 for the first time (3000 coins bonus) while playing at £4.5. I wonder if anyone else has noticed how the bonus will drop with twice within a few spins of each other. If you get free spins... Always play a few more spins after...it's suspiciously regular!

Another valid game will be Reel Rush £20/spin. The feature is rather steady between 20-100x stake and drops in far more often than every 150 times.

Interesting....
I do £20 spins if my bankroll is at least 2k.
I have played thunderstruck 2 loads on £15 spins, my best is 2800 off the features.
Not great I know!

Once I had £4K bank roll, I played southpark with £20 spins then got bonus round after a grand!
the bonus is the one with 9 bushes, It kept doubling and ended up with £25k in total.
That was 2 years ago.

I have tried big bets at raging rhino and montezuma still waiting for A big one!

Just tried Lost Island as I have never played it before. I have played shitty slots before but this one takes the cake. Worse slot ever! I will have to add this to my never play again list. Sorry Lotusch -- we all have luck with different slots and this one is a definite burr up my ass.

Don't do it!! Make 4-5 bets to see what happens and stop if you don't get lucky.

Now what game.
All my netent expirience is free spins that pay 10%-20% of their worth. So no netent.
Maybe some videopoker, or MG low variance. Or go big with IR! It has a 30 max bet! :D

Aw I am sorry Barbara... :oops:
I have the same with a very good friend to be honest.
He sometimes told me to play a slot and it would demolish my bankroll while he keeps winning on it and vice versa. :rolleyes:

Yer I am really lucky on that slot I suppose.
