Ok, take ONE look and tell me the difference between this and the former version. :rolleyes::rolleyes:

Yep! You guessed it, a 60x bet bonus buy...


And you can play it now on mobile! :D

The slot is some HV monster. The features mostly don't pay more than 10x bet, so rather touch and go to get into profit.

Did the review earlier and took 20 features in a row at 150 a pop (2.50 bet)....only once did I gt 152 back, most were 6 - 50 credits, far off the prize.

The game has an RTP of 95.299% only, so that is another factor that add to the volatility.

4:32 accurately sums up what is going to happen to your balance if you go on a bonus buy binge with this. :eek:
:rolleyes: That was my chair sliding back across the floor, it had just been polished.

Online is becoming far to greedy & want super fast games eating money, without any responsibility, these games are popping up so fast players are struggling to keep up.

I feel most if not all providers will soon jump on this band wagon

"2019 - The year of the feature buy" where all slots rake in as much get rich quick profit before the UKGC and other governing bodies jump in and ban them totally.

Let' see.....

I can't help but think the same mate. Blueprint wasted no time once they got the Megaways licence and basically stole a march on every other developer.
I am a little shocked that other developers have appeared to be so slow in following suit, particularly Nextgen, who appear to have become a forgotten developer.
If there was any Nextgen game that would fit the bonus buy model though, 300 Shields is definitely it.
If this version becomes a hit, don't be surprised to see the likes of King Kong, Medusa II and Gorilla Go Wild getting the bonus buy treatment soon.
But Nextgen have missed a trick bigtime (pun very much intended) by taking so long to create this "sequel".

I really hope that other developers do not follow suit though and that the whole Megaways and bonus buy thing is merely "this year's fad".
I do not want to see this becoming the norm.

It's only my opinion, but playing slots should be a bit like playing poker.
Lots of folded hands/dead spins with the odd moment of excitement and/or anticipation when you enter a pot/feature.

If "buy the feature"won't get banned then soon all of the developers will start to implement it in their games!

Who gonna ban it? Nobody!

I know some people like them, but from a RG perspective they are horrendous, and considering the max stake on FOTB's news recently, I can't see how these won't be targeted considering you can lose over a grand without even spinning the reels.

I do agree with you, BUT how is it really any different to putting 1k on any other type of bet whether it be football/tennis/horses etc I mean my mate bet £1400 the other day on a footy match in the 80th min to score a goal, madness! thats about 6 months of my gambling budget on one bet! lol

I dont want them to be banned as i like the odd one if i not got the time to commit but want a feature, and the ones you can work towards a freebie eg EC are ok too.

OK - this game is absolutely toxic beyond belief. Makes the EC bonus buy and gamble look like playing cards for matchsticks. I have just played 3 hours at 50p/£30 buy-ins. I advise in the strongest possible terms you do NOT play this on feature buys!! You've been warned.

It's a different type of gambling though isn't it? Do a £1000 feature buy on EC, gamble and you can lose it all in under 30 seconds, £1000 on spurs to win today and it lasts 90 minutes, and you have the option of cash out etc.

Apart from the bonus buy which does look bad it looks a lot clearer and smoother. What's the ave spin count for normal feature drop?

Also every game that had a buying feature should be stopped. Look at genie 100x for buyin and that can still give less then 5x, spinal tap can give zero x . they should all be stopped it takes away the whole point of playing slots in the first place, the enjoyment, the frustration, the highs and lows. Get rid and ban all feature buys and get back to good ole slotting.
