Battleships Direct Hit and Luminous Life.

Not an official Megaways game but can produce up to 117649-ways and is as awful as only SG can make low-paying slots and an oddball 243-way Playtake:

too bad for the first slot. It actually looks rather interesting and somewhat novel too. But ive skipped to next slot after you got that random feature that paid 0,2x. Also 4 or 6x or whatever it was for top symbol doesnt really inspire much confidence either :/

my first thought of that new playtech was "underwater evolution" :p but it looks like it plays completely different to evolution. Also, is it possible to get more free spins ? Or do extra wilds just become extra wilds? Is it even possible to get extra free spins/wild symbols, other than ones you get when you trigger fs?

Actually both slots look interesting, and its nice to see 2 new slots being released without a single one (!!?!) being a blatant copy of some other slot :)

also, for all we know first slot might have stuff like 400 ways of top symbol in its paytable... but even if it does, having 6x as a top paying symbol is not going to attract many players so not sure where were they going with this one.

I think it's 4x for the top symbol on the Battleshits game.
On the Luminous one, there are no extra spins, wilds just seem to appear randomly as you don't see them spinning past. The free game scatters I assume you get respins if they trigger and the game adds them until no more appear, but I never saw that.

Can’t providers see what attracts players? Thanks for the video it will save me wasting time loading either of those. I suppose they are ok if the kids want to watch gran having a bit of fun with her pension.

Shocking :oops:

First 30 seconds of Dunovers video I was excited then when I saw the pays and no increasing multiplier - what was the point of the game!

Scientific could have had a good slot with this design, espeically the way the torpedos unlock the feature :(

Actually sad about the battleship one, couldve been so much better than all the blueprint clones if only they put some weight on the paytable. I agree it looks like shite in it's current form though :(

yeah it really could have been a sleeper hit and it looks nice too. But as i said for all we know maybe it dishes out 400 ways of top symbol from time to time and its actually playable? No idea really just a shot in the dark :p I mean bonanza with its diamonds looks nice but ive played it thousands times now and i dont think i even got 6oak of diamonds... much less multiways of 6oaks lol so for what its worth it might as well have 6x pay as well.

Problem is - apart from RR, is there any WMS game that delivers decent payouts?

I don't seem to be seeing any of those ... IF they actually exist. Expect the trend to continue....

I used to love WMS, but what they are dishing out the last 18-24 months is absolutely and utter rubbish.
They went from a very decent games developer to a piss poor one. A shame really.
Their old suite of games I still do enjoy, the likes of Kronos, Amazon Queen, Luau Loot, Ruby Slippers, Zeus, Bierhaus, Black Knight II are still enjoyable to play.

But boy oh boy their current releases are a shock to the system and I would not touch them with a bargepole.

WTF, all these slots are like 10 years old :D
Just goes to show they are still more popular than the crap being served up lately. Btg have completely changed the face of slotting and raised players expectations and unless other developers start getting somewhere near they are going to get left on the shelf. Slots that pay 0.1 of your stake for a win line with such regularity is imo not the way forward.

IMO, BTG slots are not the best in terms of graphics, however, they can produce incredible wins with very high multiplier. And that makes it very attractive :)

Yeah:). The bottom line is I would rather play a slot with mediocre graphics that pays me than an all singing all dancing one that doesn’t. Also I like the fact that btg aren’t over the top with graphics a little retro if you like. It’s quite refreshing.
