The state of gaming continues to crumble, WTF are these games doing in any respectable casino, the payouts are so painfully weak there is no chance of winning jack shit, IMHO these are here to line the pockets of the casinos and fleece the player, what a bunch of fucking junk, makes me sick :mad:

Indeed. I have had the misfortune of adding many of these to the SC database recently and that has entailed playing them in 'fun' mode because the paytables aren't always comprehensive. The RTP's tend to be lower than say Netent/MG/WMS and they play 'flat.

I don't know about Ainsworth, but I must say that the SG game Michael Jackson King of Pop has been very good to me across the 3 casinos I play it at (Leo Vegas, Videoslots & Casumo) A few times it has saved my balance with 3 x scatters paying £100 (on a £2 bet) recovering me from disaster on MG games plus that bloody Rhino! On 2 occasions I hit 4 scatters paying £1k (again on a £2 bet) I believe 5 scatters on the same bet is £5k, but I have never achieved this!

I usually only stick to MG and Netent games, but tried this when it came out online following playing the land based version in Vegas a couple of years ago. Couldn't comment about any other SG games.

Have to agree that these slots are just very well unbalanced & boring think i stated in another thread on how poor they are , another which in my opinion should be very closely looked is barcrest BB , as your stake line does not go up per the big bets it remains so low compared with a normal 5 spins at a fiver , this is a complete con , it may state a higher % but i've been playing them for a while now @ BB & came to the conclusion your better just to spin them at a higher stake in normal games the returns are far better.

Fully agree with these BB stakes on Barcrest games however Barking Mad has paid me very handsomly a few times on the BB function.
All other slots I have tried failed miserably tho. ;)

SG is a load of crap...I have the feeling those slots have no capacity to pay anything decent at all.

I stick to my favourites on most casino's anyway. :)

Michael Jackson was designed before the merge, not all of the Bally games were crap, anything new is utter trash.

best bally to date in that spin win one ( CASH SPIN i think ? ? ? ) , the one which has two features ( wheel thingy ) now i kinda like that game because it can give you a half good return at higher stakes.

Those Bastardcrests pay around 98% in big bet mode usually. Still wouldn't tempt me though.

98℅ RTP for big bet, but incredibly high variance at those stakes. Slot only has to be lucky once and that's your money gone into the casino, never to return. So the RTP is fairly meaningless unless you're rich.

A lack of interest or passion for slot gaming in the creators shines through all recent SG/WMS releases. Just a terribly corporate entity now, doing "by the numbers" slots without the player in mind.

What idiot slapped that ridiculous huge spin button on the desktop. Basic stuff like skipping win count ups is missing, reels are slow to spin/laggy, and animations jerky.

Really poor stuff, like pulling teeth sometimes.
