Demo slots - an accurate reflection of real play?

    I've not been able to deposit recently, so just been faffing around with DEMO games at various sites.

    I was playing TRSOTS on one site at 30p a spin right from the start, but when the game loaded the line bet was £60. So when I hit the global bonus game, it paid out at a weighted average bet of the £60 it first showed and not the 30p I set it to. This happened on a couple of other sites in DEMO also.

    I tried Scrooge also and when it first loads, the bet is really high and the Christmas counter started at 12 instead of 1. I played low stakes (maybe 60p, £1, can't really remember) and when the free spins it paid out way higher. I know these are "fun games", but aren't they supposed to be DEMO versions i.e. accurately represent real gameplay? I think it'd be misleading to anyone who hasn't played these games before.

    Maybe this isn't weird to anyone else and I've just got too much time on my hands!

    Microgaming slots sometimes open a game in free play in the middle of free spins round.

    But to answer your question, if I remember well, the slots should be using the same servers etc. in free play, if you're not playing offline of course. I think I saw a casino being not recommended here, because their games have been too loose in demo mode.

    free mode in the middle of free spins? WTF? :p

    This was at proper sites BETAT, GUTS, LeoVegas, Verajohn. I'm assuming the RTP is the same, just that if you were new to online slots and played a demo game on low stakes, then it paid big on a bonus game, how are you to know that for some reason it's weighted a much a higher average bet? :confused:

    anyway, I'm no worse off. Just thought it odd. Maybe I need to find better ways to fill my time when I've not got real cash to gamble. :p
