Does anyone else struggle to get one feature or one base win above 10x the bet on this damn game? I got my £20 cash back from Sky Vegas as per the weekend promo played through it 1x with £10 odds left 200 spins on book of ra no feature no win over 15x barely any hits and only one 5 of a kind!! I thought surely this thing has to give a feature sooner or later manage another 200 spins have about 1.20 left still not one feature not one win over 15x bet! played out last 12 spins surprise surprise no feature! This is not right surely how can it go this many spins so cold? I know it's high variance but come on!? The worst bit is I was only doing 10p a spin and Sky Vegas is one of the only places I know of to play this game at 1p per line bet. So angry as that was into cash why didn't I smash the sht out of Gonzo! Not relying on that slot ever again!! :mad::mad:

Well, not to be a d*ck but that game, and pretty much all Novo games are very capable of long featureless sessions, with poor results in the basegame, which is also typical of youyr average Novo session. And i must admit i am no veteran, but did have a fanatic try out the last couple of months, and the above statement holds true.

It seems to be a hit and miss software, with little room for an in-between. You either win big or go home broke, and the variance seems quite high on average.

On the other hand, it's just as likely that any other game you picked would have been dead to you and we all know (or should) that Gonzo, who already starts dancing for a paltry 10 x bet, will not be chucking out features easily either, and mostly that one little dance is all you will see from him. ^.^


Since a bad streak as of late, i have been dedicating all my last tenners, to DOA, Reel Steal and Kings of Chicago.
Somehow all these high variance slots (not too sure about KoC though) will give you a decent playtime on average, and the big hits on the paytable are of course always a possibility.

Just take it easy and better luck next time.:thumbsup:

Never really liked their games, they put them everywhere across Poland (liquor stores, gas stations e.t.c.) so fortunately I never really felt like playing them online, but the few I played were just as bad when it comes to winning something as their land-based equivalents. It just seems to me as if Novomatic got stuck in the 80s / 90s and never really got into this new century of gambling :lolsign:

Love Novo games but you won't get many big wins in the base game, especially in Book Of Ra: it's all about the feature and re-triggers. You get more scatters on the reels in the free spins so re-triggers on Novo games are much more common than on other games. In fact we had a discussion about it here recently and how the online versions might be slightly less high variance than the land-based versions.

Anyway, don't play Novo games if want guaranteed long sessions - 9 times out of 10 you'll bust out pretty quick but every now and again you'll get a great hit from the feature.

All advice is appreciated! I wanted honesty about the software and received it in spades. I'll be sure to have a higher bankroll next time I try any novo games in future. As for the 3 slots you mentioned annoyingly Sky Vegas has none of these and the cheapest game other than the novo ones is starburst. The reason I said I should have went hell for leather on Gonzo is it was freezing on Friday there without one feature or big win in fact the biggest it hit was maybe 1.50 hence why Sky Vegas reimbursed me the entire sum I lost (which was £20 with only 1x wagering req). I wish they had some of my favourite net-ent slots the only ones I like are 20p min to play which is quite alot when they aren't paying out.

As Simmo said,Novo is a kind of software that let's you get a massive hit in one of the free spins on any of their slots.
If they are cold,a 100 Euro deposit is gone in minutes on even mediocre bets.
Still like to play the tho but haven't hit a biggie in a long time.

In 2013 I had a good few 1000-2500x bet wins on Lady Luck and Dolphins Pearl and Katana.
My favourites. ;)

So a big win is defo possible but expect long dry sessions of spins.

From memory the biggest win I've had was also on Lady luck I think I won just under €70 on 40c bet. It retriggered and I got about 30 spins so was quite disappointed with that return. They seem to very like WMS variance level expect to bust don't anticipate winning. :D

Hugely under-rated game, along with Mystic Secrets IMO.
Yip Katana is a very cool slot and Mystic Secrets too but that one can be a real pain in the arse... :D
Anyone ever hit big on Hoffmeister?

One of the slots I can't hit more then 20x stake in FS and if I look correctly it is capable of some serious big hits...
The shiny glittery David Hasselhoff themed slot.... :D

That's it, all Novomatic Casino's blocked, done it...just a constant joke, 1000s of dead spins then pitiful bonus, no interest or excitement, just robbery.

The only Novoline game I like to play is Book of Ra. Even though, I don't get a big pay from the start I know the machine is going to pay back somehow. I usually play book of ra for free on this site ---snip---. You can enjoy the game for hours, before depositing to a real casino.
Welcome to the forum, and I guess a goodbye at the same time :eek2:

I wondered why there was a comment on such an old thread. Have had several bonuses and retriggers since this thread thankfully!! :thumbsup:

I just said I have now had several bonuses on book of ra so the initial post no longer applies. As for BTG I've won big on several of their slots
It's merkur I'll go nowhere near now :D
