Battleship Direct Hit Megaways - well what did you expect when WMS got hold of the mechanic?? :rolleyes:
Wolf Legend - surely the most annoying free spins trigger ever?
Slots O'Gold - St*rb*rst on steroids and despite the simplicity possibly the best of a bad bunch.

Am I missing something here hasn't Battleship been out for about a year an previously reviewed by you Dunover or is this some kind of second version?
This is the official Megaways version and different AFAIK. I did indeed do a video the first time round.

IMHO Wolf legend is pretty good, well balanced with decent amount of features, although the gamble is a bit weird
Slots o gold is a bad megaways version of a bad original

Battleships and slots o gold have been out for a long time now. Not new. Mine from November last year. Screenshot_2019-04-13-02-20-06.png

The Megaways version is fairly recent; perhaps you’re thinking of the original version?

It's been live on SkyVegas for probably a couple of months at least now I think? Only know because it was included in the games you could get the free spins on in one of their promos.

Yes, there are a couple of things to be aware of - to cheaply use the Megaways license, developers are rehashing existing slots quite often, such as Blueprint with Irish Riches, Legacy of Ra, Genie Jackpots etc. Battleships is the same, yes we know it has Red7 on the intro but it gets offered as a SG/WMS game like for example the those crappy new 'MG' games developed by small in-house studios. Sometimes they are only found at specific casinos for a certain period before becoming more widely available.

There are now 25 active Meagreways slots.

Almost everyone's done a better job with the Megaways license since BTG's fluke crowning glory, Bonanza.

Everything else is like a watered- down VHS copy of what was once a novel concept

'Meagreways' :D:thumbsup:


Yeah, was toying with that one for a few days once I'd got the idea in my head. Call it a 'celebratory tribute title' as we now have hit the quarter-century, the silver jubilee of the dreaded mechanic.

I maintain that Genie Jackpots is the best of the bunch. It pays out regularly, and with nice wins and frequent mini-bonuses. I don’t think anyone’s going to win a fortune from it, but for sheer fun it’s worthwhile.

Both providers cap winnings, I don't like that. I would love it if stories of people losing 50k or more (because of the cap on winnings) go public.

But caps on winnings have always applied in betting so unless they are real small i don,t see the problem.

Some sites have a cap of say quarter million on slots. Other slots have 10000x stake cap. All wins most would be happy with.

Think RTG slots have always has a cap on what they play which is even less.

Even sports betting all sites have a cap on what a bet can pay out. You could do an each way acca on 5 horses that will get bet accepted and if all win it should pay £5 million but most bookies would have Max payout capped at £1m. Long as people areaware what the cap is i don't see the problem.

Nothing to do with "wins we are happy with". If a slot has over 100,000x potential and then hides in the help file a "max 5,000x on maxbet" it is misleading.
With megaways it is like they go to extreme measures to let you think even 10,000,000x is possible, only to have a "max 5,000x" hidden in help file.

Sports betting is completely different because you choose the payout of your bet.

I guess the careful player reads the help file and adjusts betsize accordingly, but what about everybody else?

I got 30 on a separate Megaways page.
