Anyone else finding this is different to the game of around a year ago? What I mean is before it used to be fairly high variance and that seems to have fallen away. Features give tons of 3 of a kind, but getting rare to get 4 and impossible to get full screen even on 10s! Anyone else noticed it's decline?

Though it can be brutal with the best of them, go try Book of Ming - re-triggers more than BoD and isn't scared of giving 4 decent symbols....

In relation to your question - harder to bonus on IMO and hard enough to even get 3 10's :rolleyes:

I managed to get a 5OAK of Kings on BoD at Slotsmillion last weekend.
It was only on 60 cent bet but it was still a decent hit.
Also retriggered once for another 10 spins.

Was the first time I played BoD on Slotsmillion and FS landed after 60ish spins, not bad.

But I agree,the game seems have changed a bit.
Spins are faster and in general I think it gives the FS quicker but with less big hits.

When BoD was just out many full screens of Sphynxs and Anubises could be found on the internet.
My best hit is still 4 OAK of the explorer dude in FS, I think within the week the game came out. On 1 Euro bet.
Never came close anymore.

I actually prefer Book of Ra as I play that game since day 1 it came out. :D

Rarely play BoD (or BoR) these days. Given up on them as it seemed I was still paying for the 750x I had on both games back in february and march :laugh:

Still like the game, but just dont play it as much as it just doesnt seem to like giving much out when you get free spins. Ill give it a try for 20-30 spins to see how its going, then i go off and play something else.

Only other time i play it, is if im down to almost nothing and i can spin some 1 or 2 lines and get lucky. :laugh: managed it last week with a 2p spin and dropped 4 explorers which was nice. :)

I've had my fair share of decent wins on this, but the amount of losses over my lifetime play on this is absolutely absurd.

I give BoD a go almost every session and lately I can't get ahead at all. I can go over 20 losing sessions, and when my "winning session" comes around it's only by about 50-100x.

I'd also go as far to say that Play n Go as an operator are just complete and utter legal thieves. There is no way in hell any of thier games run anyway near 96% RTP.

On 4 seperate occasions I've lost £100 plus on Legacy of egypt at the bare minimum £0.30 stake without a bonus. When you do hit it, it gives you 3 spins, no retriggers and a 5x win for the intital trigger. Disgutsing stuff. I have magaed one 200x plus stake on this in my liftetime play, a win of £72.

I am on a current run of over £100 lost on £0.20 bets on BoD without a single bonus. Uh huh. "Random"!

And here is my stats for BoD on Videoslots. Bare in mind this only goes as far back as July 2017, so my spin total is at least 3 times this, and my RTP probably waaaaaaay lower than what it actually is.

Abysmal Bod RTP.jpg


39,210 spins and an RTP of 86.06%

My bet amount at VS ranges from £0.20-£1. My biggest win of £97 on a £1 bet means this.

I have not won a 200x bet on £0.50

I have not won over 245x stake on £0.40

And haven't won 320x or more on £0.30 bets.

This is over 39,210 spins

Utter disgrace and a provider everyone should seriously consider boycotting.

We already know that they offer different RTP versions to Casinos. What we don't know is the likely dirty truth that they probably do not even have servers that offer an RTP of over 90% in reality!

And the same can be said for all developers, it's a dirty industry with dirty secrets and lots & lots of money and greedy people who only care for money.

Looks like it's been running pretty close to theoretical RTP on videoslots:

JlVvSZV.png


The RTP of the Play n Go games is listed in the help section on casinos with Malta and UKGC licenses at least and on VS it listed as the 96% version. Do you honestly think that they have somehow fooled all the regulators and slot testers or that they are all in on the conspiracy to host slots with lower than advertised RTP? What proof can you show for these claims because doing 40k spins on BoD surely isn't it. I agree it looks like you've been unlucky playing that game but it's nothing out of the ordinary imo and throwing around claims like casinos should consider boycotting this game because you've had a bad run just makes people on this forum look ridiculous.

So Videoslots are telling you they are running the factory RTP 96.21% version but you reckon they are actually using a server with a reduced-RTP version? The PnG games can have lower RTP settings but you're talking a shaving of around a maximum of 2-2.5%. So can IGT games. You will not find PnG offering 90% models. The game mechanic and adjustment required would make it almost impossible for the design of the game to run that low.

Remember the higher the volatility (as we have a HV game here) the longer and more spins it will take to iron out significant RTP deviations whether up or down. On starburst you'd never deviate 10% down after 30k spins. This is what you can get choosing HV games. I should know, that's almost all I play.

Yeah, it's a shit run but that's all it is.

As usual I have no idea what people talks about when they say a game is running worse. This has been a favourit game since the day it came out. This is my rtp for the last 13 months.

Yea I feel it's a bit more than a "Shit run".

After half a million tracked spins on this and the RTP was lingering around 91% and all spins were on the offered 96% version. Book Of Dead Insights

Perhaps another half a million should get closer? What if it doesn't? Another million?

You see therein lies the con of it all. It's the never ending Gamblers Fallacy. "It has to even itself out sometime".

Ah I'm just disguted with them all, nevermind me.

Time for a break.

Yea 10% under the TRTP after 40,000 is nowhere near "Pretty close". Sorry pal.

I'll keep my other opinions on the industry and "Regulators" to myself to save from any ridicule for being open minded about the goings on. You believe what you want to though :thumbsup:

I decided to give this a little time yesterday and today, see how its playing. Last night it wouldn't stop dropping the books and giving me 100-250x wins. Had 6 or 7 from memory in space of about half hour. (it must
have been having a funny turn).. Did really well for a while, but then had a brain fart and carried on too long losing my nicely gained balance :laugh: (or you could say it returned to how its been for me lol).

Though in fairness, i played it for 5 minutes this morning and had 3 bonus's within a few minutes.. 222x , 170x and a slightly lower 60x win. Made some more elsewhere and a withdrawal (seeing as i was dissapointed
with my previous evenings stupidity. pmsl).

So a little nicer to me this last 24 hours, but im still cautious with it. (still like the slot though :D ) Thought id attach my little rtp thing too just to add to the mix. :)
