BEST FREE SPINS

1. High Society - it is not easy to get them, but they can pay nicely. I always choose version with expandexd random wild reel. If yout get scatter, that reel also becomes wild, and two scatters retrigger free spins (and you hev 3 reels in wilds).
2. Gold Factory - this could go to no. 1, but the minumum bet is quite high (if you play with all lines). Very exciting and inovative bonus feature, I had no weak results (never less than 40x).
3. Retro reels extreme heat - not to difficult to reach free spins, they pey decent and if you strike $wilds in first reels it can go to 100x-200x. When you build up your balance, you can start calculating with respins, usually they pay or make you even or some plus, but also bad series can happen.
4. The finer reels of life - I guess many will be surprised, but when you get them they are usually nice. My preference is Wine and Cheese, Coffe and Chocolate and then Whiskey&cigars. Champagne are very much like Micheal in Immortal Romance, I don't like rolling reels.
5. Centre Court - also quite hard to get, but can surprise you with wilds and multipliers, at least you can return what you invested until the free spins.
It reminds to Avaloin (I.).

WORST FREE SPINS
1. Alaskan Fishing - to me free spins are pointless, I can't remember when I had 5OK and I can only dream about all that stacked wilds. Multiplier is poor, very difficult to reach free spins (and two scatters pay nothing). Horrible.
2. Twisted Circus - very hard to get them and when they come, they pay nothing in 9/10. I don't understand it, it is pure cheat. I also could put it at first place, but once I did get 5 wilds and nice ~530x bet (and it was only winning spin of all 13). I would be happier if they at least triple bonus when you hit it.
Is it compensation for big wins potential and rather frequent bonuses in base game, I don't know.
3. Break da Bank Again - I don't care how ultro-high-variance is the slot, but free spins should be reward and very often they are able to give - nothing.
And they are certanly not that often.
4. Hot ink - although has respin like Retro reels there is dangerous to use since free spins are very stingy.
5. Immortal Romance - what I said for BDBA, it can go here as well. Shamefull that such demanding slot can let you so much down. But theN, at least this slot has Wild Desire and free spins are more often then in the slots sbove.

As a final word: it doesn't mean that first 5 can't let you down and next 5 to give super-mega-big-win, but this is some average evaluation.

I think that high variance slots (if not all) should have some win guarantee, at least 15x (20x should be decent).

Good
1, Hellboy "supermode" triggers randomly, will often add in lots of sticky wilds had 500x-800x plenty of times on this one.
2, Terminator 2, aside from the obvious "hot mode" triggers, the "normal" blue free spins can often chuck out some decent wins, due to wilds and T-1000s multiplying the way wins.
3, Dragons loot, will often dish out upto 75 free spins or 8x multipliers or both if youre lucky, and plenty of decent wins.
4/5 Both Girls with Guns games, hard to trigger but all 3 free spin rounds have good potentials if the stars align.
6, Wealth Spa, takes a while to build up but the free spins once reached will pretty much always be over 100x
6, Thunderstruck 2, like Immortal romance only with payouts, much more stable wins than IM and its often dead bonuses.

Bad
1, Hitman, free spins while triggering pretty often will usually be less than 5x stake.
2, Big Kahoona snakes and ladders can randomly trigger 5 free spins, you are lucky to get 1x bet on these usually.
3, Tomb Raider 2 same as above 5 free spins "supermode" again you'll be lucky to get 1x bet.
4, Scrooge, easy to trigger you build them up over time with wins, poor payouts 50 lines and only micro stake wins usually.
5, Dark Knight Rises, always ends up triggering before the multiplyers are added, 30-40 spins and less than 10x bet is an often occurrence.

You missed a couple CFTBL and JATBS, once on JATBS i had 5 scatters pay me 0.5x bet

CFTBL is as usual almost always awful, also Immortal romance amber free spins always pay 0x for me , last 12 bonus rounds on it different casinos 10 of them were 0x wins 1 was 12x and the other 30x(these are the ones i can remember)

Dont forget Avalon II where once morgan reels paid me 0.08p

free spin round is guarantee win, and comes with the price of never seeing it in a timely manner. one to avoid.

Just a little annoying heads-up to anyone else clicking those links - they come with a force re-direct to spam when clicking the back button

Microgaming slot games are top notch I suppose. I don't complain much about the slots free spins but there's one slot that get into my nerves. Break Da Bank Again's free spins offer nothing but a waste of time.

Twisted Circus today...got free spins and at first spin - retrigger! 26 spins...finally I thought
At the end- 3 spins were small wins (two scatters).

Only in one spin wild symbol appeared (and in vain).

I don't know what to say...

I play MG slots only and I am starting to think more about free spins features.

I have a feeling that in most slots reelset is unchanged and (maybe more important) that slot acts the same (same rtp) as in the base game. Is it true? Sometimes
I think that there is no benefit when you get free spins at all.

The RTP/TRTP is based across returns from the slots lifetime as a whole, so both feature and base game.

However they are broken down percentage wise across the base game and bonus rounds. This varies from game to game and would take like forever to list em all :p

You will probably find that most games use a totally different set of reel strips for the bonus round.

Some quick examples

DOA, No scatters, less picture/premium symbols

Jurassic Park, Stacked Dinosaurs, removal of wilds/scatters on some selections

Immortal Romance,(all 4 selections) Amber feature has wild next to Amber on reel 1, not possible in base game. Wild Desire (impossible for scatter or wild to drop)

Quick examples where they use the same reels

Microgaming 9-liners

FS rounds can be frustrating as hell also. Meant to mention in other post, last nights session.....

Immortal Romance(0.30p) 9-10 spins IIRC - BONUS!

Jurassic Park(0.30p) 20-25 Spins - BONUS!

Thunderstruck(0.18p), just 2 spins!!! - BONUS!

All of which usually take me LOTS of spins and I normally have to accumulate at least 50 lots of 2x Scatter first :rolleyes:

Grand total of these £10.00!! Whoop, Whoop, busted with an hour or so despite quick bonuses.

Constantly moaning at the missues, 'You don't get features, you lose, You DO get features and you STILL Lose'

What we gotta do :confused::confused::eek::eek:

All part of the "fun" I suppose.
You're not alone, MG has been so dead lately its not even funny, I'm on a break for now (freerolls only, hoping for a bit of payback.)

I just discovered how generous High Society can be.
Had couple of good wins, but only 150xbet. Wild reels at free spins are still worth trying.

Doing some statistics (last 4 days).

Numbers below are wins (add x) in free spins:

Agent Jane Blonde
22, 30, 218, 20, 9, 40, 9, 11, 100, 25, 50, 8, 170

Ladies Nite
60, 19, 60, 35

Adventure Palace
100, 100, 50, 40, 30, 22, 11, 15, 25

Thunderstruck
40, 21, 5, 20, 95, 27

Spring Break
45, 20, 14, 30, 167, 9

Break da Bank Megaspin
10, 17

The Finer Reels of Life
*Wine and Cheese
10, 19

Immoortal Romance
Amber 205
Troy 5, 12, 80
Michael 30, 20, 12
Sarah 4, 11, 20, 18, 81, 32, 35

Wins are cca. based (not 100% punctual).

Don't know what to conclude, 9-liners have good return, but don't have excitement and added features (and possible bigger wins) of TFROL, IR, TS2. But all returns to slot variance.

I have to put Game of Thrones on the list of the worst bonuses...

So hard to reach them (I would say 250 spins in average) and then I get this:

B 2x; 45x; 11x; 11x; 7x; 1x; 2x; 3X
L 9x; 40x; 33x; 30x; 103x; 10x; 51x; 10X;
S 12x; 4x; 101x; 31x; 14x; 12x 20x(R)*; 11x;
T 25x; 17x; 9x; 51x; 18x; 19x; 1x;

MG perfected stingy on this one..less free spins than in other slots....stacked symbols can give more, but they also can jam other win combos, there is chance of getting better hit in base game then in FS. Even retrigger on first spin doesn't mean you will win anything major...

Simply...fraud!

You're just playing it wrong. Those wonderful AffPower people give you scatters during the free spins, so can you imagine getting a screen full of em.

And all at 2x multiplier!!! :(
