    Check this screenshot I took of Bgo advert on facebook. Why is it showing 5 starburst expanding wilds? This is poor form if you ask me as the slot can only produce 3 stars which expand.

    Another casino did this a while ago too(again an advertisement online) and when I alerted them they gave me free spins and assured me it would be rectified.

    Here's the screenshot I took...

    Facebook is full of 'questionable' ads like that.
    Even some from several CM Accredited casinos

    Yep totally agree.

    Recall seeing the original 'Rainbow Riches' (Barcrest) showing a 'Pot' on all 5 reels whereas they only appear 2,3 and 4.

    Poor research and lazy ad designers :p

    Some of them are from the actual casinos, or at least on their official facebook pages, and not from affiliates

    I love it how when you play microgamings hitman the reels spinning show an expanding wild symbol on all reels, but in reality you can only ever hit it on 2,3,4 :rolleyes:

    For that I give them a pass and assume it to just be bad sloppy programming, but really it is a little deceptive.

    That's pretty bad if you ask me. I reckon it's to make the ad more attractive. People love 5 expanding wild symbols after all...maybe I'm just being cynical..

    like this... implying that a £35k win is possible on starburst, which coincidently is the game that they give free spins on as part of their SUB (@ 10p a spin :rolleyes:)

    You'd need to be betting 1-200£ a pop to get a win like that on Starburst surely?! Yes, that's even worse!!

    It's IMPOSSIBLE to get a win like that!
    Maybe you could win 35K, but not some figure ending in 91p - unless the slot lets you bet something like £100.79 per spin!
    Totally made up marketing drivel - something I hate. :mad:

    This is what I was going to say. It's like they've just pulled a "big win" figure out of their ass without the slightest bit of information on how the slot plays and pays.

    Utter nonsense.

    I await the DOA ad with a pumping techno soundtrack and full screen of wilds with bated breath

    You too can win 50K with 36p, honest!

    Your making a mountain out of a molehill. I often wager £9k per spin to win £35k on 3 purple lines in Starburst. But that's small fry compared to when I hit the 20 free spins with sticky wilds on the game. :rolleyes:

    Look at this shit from a BGO affiliate, not sure how they manage to advertise on facebook considering the advertising rules on there regarding gambling

    I can see now, where I've been going wrong :eek:

    I should be playing more Starburst :thumbsup:

    Yes because 500xlinebet jackpot for the best 5 of a kind and frequent hits is soooo high variance right enough...pull the other one! :lolup::lolup::lolup:
