BTG in "running out of ideas" shocker.... In all seriousness, they have so far shown a lack of ability outside of the (very good) mega-ways games. And to make another copy of Book of Ra / Magic Mirror Deluxe is (to me) extremely lazy. But who knows... i'm normally wrong ;)

I suppose it could be asked in the AMA, though it's really just a general Q could go anywhere -
What, in your opinion, was the last, truly innovative slot?

Online I think BTG would currently take that award for Bonanza (and the Mega-Ways series in General) - although there are a some games in retail i would say are innovative.
Laser Fruit (Red Tiger) is innovative, and a clever take on the expanding ways idea. Great production on that game too. Maths - not so sure.

I think its actually very smart and adds something new and different to their library of slots. People seems to favor megaways or book slots. By doing this they now tap into both parts of the market which I am sure was their plan anyways.

Someone slap me cause Im actually defending BTG :eek:

I can see big problems looming if BTG try to make feature buy standard on all the future games.At first glance it seems a really good idea
but if it works for them, it may force other developers to introduce it and it could dramatically change the nature of online slots for the worse.
Going way back the standard slot concept was that the players objective was the achieve features through normal play hopefully at minimal cost.
Feature buy is a totally different way of playing,with players bypassing the normal play and being able to bring features up at will which will do 2 things,
devalue the features and the feeling of achievement when the player gets them and giving the games hard gambling profiles.
Personally,if I were still involved in game development I would think very hard about offering feature buy on a game.
There are implications of UKGC scrutiny as well if players start to lose silly amounts on these games.

OK, have permission to reveal.......my 20-minute detail of the game, features and opinions.

Never had a spin on any other than BoD. Even at BoD I only had 3-4 seasons with my money, only play it at battles.
But BoG looks like something I could play a lot. Can't be sure before I try it though.

Do you know the chances to get the free spins naturally?

I said the same previosuly. I give the UKGC a year tops before the feature buy is banned across all slots.

The "buy" feature has already been discussed thoroughly. Here are the results IMHO:

1. The feature can be very helpful at highrolling seasons (bets at the same level as a small "buy" cost). It has saved me a lot of money in White Rabbit back in November.
2. Demanding actions from UKGC is very dangerous (will have unpredictable results that we will probably not like).
3. There are already available bet sizes (on other slots) many times higher than the max cost of the buy in any BTG game.
4. The option to set a max bet limit (same as you set a max loss limit) is all that you need.
5. It is far easyer, a lot faster and way more dangerous to start doing bigger bets.

Last thing I would want is action from UKGC,let them ban reversals then I would take them seriously.
My point is that IMHO rolling out feature buys could be very detrimental to players and casinos
alike.Think BTG are pushing it a bit too hard bringing out 3 games with feature buy in a few months
without seeing what the long term player response might be.
Bear in mind that Extra Chilli is not generally available yet and looks to be much more addictive game
than White Rabbit.I know from free playing that game how fast a bankroll can go chasing a decent feature
buy.
