I gave the new Bonanza a go 500 spins and no bonus BTG make a clone of the first Bonanza? 😂
A clone of the first Bonanza and a little bit of the engine from WWTBAM to allow the 117k Ways in the free spins. Also, a diabolical RTP in the base game / Feature to compensate for all the RTP lost to those progressive jackpots.

The first Bonanza Paid its progressive of 14k x to someone in Australia (Ok - Sweden?) - we never saw it again. It will probably drop a 200k x hit soon as its been stepping the hidden progressive since launch :oops: - this game has unlimited multipliers and unlimited spins.

Remember BTG has potential and potential like nothing ever seen before. So with all those Megaways there are endless possibilities that would make DOA II look like a teddy bear machine. We are all just waiting for that hit - its about 5 years late already. Did I mention that It has potential?

I’ve already managed max Megaways in the bonus and indeed a max Megaways trigger on the shit one with pots. Something I’ve never managed on the original.

I’ve not played the mega pays one that much as it’s just to tilty that u just can’t trigger something that can pay absolutely nothing and seeing that mega (allegedly) coming out every 5-10 mins.

I mean BTG must be close to bust now surely?? Can anybody confirm it’s actually being paid? If not where is the money going that is building up and then being reset?

Maybe the clue is just to play it on max stake? Presumably the higher stake you play on the more chance of a trigger? Is this confirmed anywhere??

I think their biggest shill Hideous Slots triggered it twice on launch playing at about the £4/£5 mark one of which produced nothing the other a mini.

Ive had it running now for a couple of days on 20-60p and not triggered it once? If it doesn’t have to pay a bean why is it that hard? Or have I just been unlucky?

Whilst watching his stream I don’t recall the mega coming out non stop so why does it now? The game is either taking millions in PROFIT not run through every minute or it’s fucked!

"Maybe the clue is just to play it on max stake? Presumably the higher stake you play on the more chance of a trigger? Is this confirmed anywhere????"

They say that the higher the stake the chances are increased to hit the progressive, aye. Ceartinly is the case for older games like the spiderman/incredible hulk progressive games where if you trigger a progressive you know instantly what you've won. That's evident when playing for fun money, where if you're betting 10+ quid a spin you'll be hitting the minor on those games on a very regular basis, for 80-150 quid or whatever it resets too on those shite games.

The basic idea afaik being if a 10p bet were to give you one chance in a gazillion to trigger it, a £1 bet would give you 10 chances, and so forth. Which is why with the "guaranteed to drop by xx.xx" type huge progressives in vegas, players who hunt specifically for them will pump it on max bet when its close, possibly even in a kind of syndicate fashion with other friends also doing the same on multiple units. While there is no "gaurunteed to drop by xx.xx amount" , perhaps there are groups of people pooling together and trying just that... maybe on casinks that offer bonus play on it.

But since you're not even guaranteed a win after the trigger for these particular progressives, I'd want to guess that the 10p bet for one chance and so forth, then also perhaps applies again on bonanzaar after the initial trigger, with the chances of then actually hitting one of the progressives increasing respectively to the bet size.
.
I'd also think that with even, say, if on average it were 50 players on the planet spinning max bet, when combining that playthrough with all the other players spinning away hopelessly on smaller bets, perhaps it wouldn't take long to rack up the money required to cover the mega progressive hits, of which 99.5% of the time the big one will only ever be going to the people betting near or at the max bet.

If it's dropping so regularly, it really has to make ya wonder how shit the base game must also be. With a huge jackpot dropping at that regularity surely they must have done a shit load of test spins to ensure the trtp levels out as suggested. Otherwise you'd think that after seeing this happen at such a regularity that has been described here, if fearing a huge loss on the horizon they would have pulled it faster than your average teenager watching buffy the vampire slayer in the 90's.
But what do I know, I'm tired as fuck, and you'd never find me playing such a POS anyway ;)

To be fair, most games are shit compared to Bonanza

But yeah, it's a pointless game - don't even trust, even if i wanted to 'try' for a jackpot, playing it given the (presumable bug) constant 250k appearing every 5 mins.

Don't like the graphics either.

One for the Holy Diver/King Maker, Star Clusters shit pile.

The average payout from the bonus has been dropped and so many dead spins in the bonus too. (always was a few but now it’s a bit obvious).

Don’t play it nearly as much but gave it a spin on Friday and it seemed to be playing better so carried on yesterday. In all 17 GOLD’s with quite a few decent base hits.

Around 5 were 22 spins and 6 or 7 were 17 spins. That is way above average but makes no difference if the spins are dead. The bonuses mainly paid around x100, with a couple around x300 and the best x450.

Guaranteed it won’t be worth playing for at least a month after that flurry, as you cannot break the compensatory cycle.

And guess which was virtually the only Casino where I didn’t hit a bonus and still has my average way lower than anywhere else? You got it, SKY VEGAS.

Gave Bonanza megapays a try. Hit 1 bonus that paid x30 odd but won’t be rushing back. The graphics are a bit blurry and perhaps it’s after playing the predecessor for so long but I find the wins hard to spot at a glance. Perhaps it’s just not mobile friendly and looks okay on PC.

I didn’t particularly like the Opal Fruits display/set up and this seems to have been adapted from that.

P.S. I find it really annoying that we can’t upload screenshots in the simple format, like we used to be able too. Can’t be bothered learning new tricks at my age, hence no screenies and tbh I don’t even bother posting anything about my big hits when they occur for that reason.

Decided to try a few other games after the good run but nothing was in the mood. 1 bonus on Punk Rocker paid x4 so inevitably ended up back with Bonanza. Eventually hit GOLD and x5. It really does seem a waste of time once you win, you cannot break the inevitable compensation that follows.

It’s not just once or twice, it’s every single time. I don’t mind losing but the predictability bores the pants off of me. You can’t blame people for all the tinfoil stuff when the evidence is so overwhelmingly in favour of your play being tracked.

So why do you still play it then?

If what you are saying is true then not only is the game illegal and not compliant with online licensing regulations, you are also knowingly playing a game with your own money that you are convinced you're going to lose on before you even start playing.

It’s not just Bonanza, it’s every game as my post inferred. It’s such a repetitive cycle, that anyone that knows what they are talking about, can’t fail to see and I don’t play as much as I did for that reason.

I played this so you don't have to.

Just watched your video. What an absolute piece of crap this MegaNoPayz Gimmick is. It literally ripped you for close to 400x without a sniff of the Jackpot Round.

The game was dull overall, and given that you don't have much RTP - I'd think there aren't many big hits left in the Base game.

I think its going to kill the majority of low rollers and throw the odd bone to a very few on low stakes. That will keep the players streaming in and BTG raking in the cash.

BTG can rename it MegaLowPayz.

That being said, not a bad effort, eh? :laugh:
