So today I decided to really go for a make or break with Bonanza. 1000x bet bankroll at $2 a pop. I intended to flat bet to give my session a bit of a chance ... or so I thought.

Started with a balance of $950. No feature until i had lost pretty much about 350x bet or $700. Plenty of G O L... never the D.

First feature paid roughly $498 and the balance peaked at $760. My intention was to either get ahead or see what I could pull off so I continued playing.

Got another 2 features within 100 spins. One paid 30x and the other 35x. By then my balance was roughly 650 to 680.

Continued and bust that 680... let's call it another 350x. Made a deposit of 80... and got the feature again and won 198 off it. Balance went up to about $250. Clicked auto and let her run. Balance depleted so I chucked in 200... and another 200... lost that. So another $650 since the last feature.

Thought ok surely something is bound to come round. Put in another 200 Played and got plenty of GO on reel 1 and 2... nothing doing. Did another 200 and saw minimal GOL... and finally bust out.

Left the slot and made one last deposit for good measure. Saw 25x bet and bust out again. I honestly don't think I will play this slot again. Its an over hyped low paying piece of junk. There are hits in the pay table but i think you will find it 10x harder to hit anything above 800x than on other high variance slots

Today wasn't my first attempt. Been playing for months on end. Hundreds of thousands of spins. I've had plenty hits in the range of 100x to 300x and 2 hits for 800x. Simply has not been worth the time or effort.

Good entertainment but severely over hyped and void of big hits. Back to DoA for me.... BTG can fool the rest of you ... I ain't buying it ;)

Your favourite .... :)

lol, I think I will give it a miss.

You will have to refine your spider senses to know when to cut off. I keep thinking surely it can't get any worse so try, try and try again only to find out it can :rolleyes:

Just leave it on autoplay, read a book and listen for every 20 spins THUD!-THUD!-THUD!-SILENCE.

Eventually the bell will ring after THUD!-THUD!-THUD!-THUD!, or even worse THUD!-THUD!-THUD!-THUD!-THUD the 5-scatter trigger of doom.

I recently had 6 EFFING CASCADES with G-O-L on the reels - did I get it? Did I hell.

It's the same as Shite Rabbit in volatility, quite a high base game turnover (similar to DoA which the math model seems to be based on) for your deposit to keep you playing for that wonder-hit. Very addictive and clever programming, love it or hate it, it is a work of slot developer genius. :eek2:

its still better then other slots.. you get a good amount of game play. with the small chance to hit a massive win..
on netent you will only get a few hundred xs stake if you are lucky.. and can suck you dry alot quicker then bonanza.

sitting at a slot with a starting balance of 1k is not a good idea.

BTG Not fooled me buddy :D

I 'allow' it 10% of my bank roll and move back to the "safety" of lower Variance stuff.

Also its never my starting slot, only head in their direction when a few quid in front so worse case scenario I'm back to starting balance.

Had a nice(ish) one earlier (see Bonanza thread, about 350x) soon as I'd lost £20 back It was 'log out o clock'!

Very sensible of you tho Nate (the 'fuck em' part not the multiple deposits :p)

You need a hit like this mutha......



'All' he had was 32 ways of 5OAK diamonds on an 18x multiplier. You can get 5 in a stack on reel 6. Should he have had that the win could have been over 140,000x bet.

In time, people will realize what a mountebank this game is. Let's be frank, we've all had a little chase on it at some point, in the hope of being that person that somehow usurps the 14,000x wins seen on Youtube :nod:

Unfortunately for us, that's never going to happen. No one on this forum is going to walk away from that slot several grand up.....it's just made that way.

Hopefully we'll all snap out of this BTG trance and go back to a proper game, like DOA. Even the gimped, er I mean 'updated' one :eek:

$3K taken out at Rizk from Bonanza on Wednesday, fed it back in two days with only 3 features all paying below 40x bet, all on $2 - $5 bets. Just wouldn't show even G-O-L for hundreds of spins, the highest was over 600 spins with not a single G-O-L and maybe an additional cascade to think that there might be a chance for the D. Got then G-O-L-D plus 5+ straight in on reels 1 -5 (never seen that happening) on $4 stake and it paid $157. :oops:

Changed to VS on Friday evening and had 4x G-O-L-D within 150 spins, all paid bad but it certainly got my BIG HUMONGOUS tin foil hat out to think that the game is tracking big wins and then let's you feed it back. :rolleyes: :D

Sucks I made my screen name with the word bonanza in it lol

I dont have much to add just think its a good provider in terms of something different and very bad in terms of payouts. When you can win big like this all it turns into is ten thousand people will lose and one person will hit big. Sure you will get 400x 600x maybe even 1000x the odd time. But it doesnt matter because you will just dump it back in quickly trying to get 10,000x.

If I had the option I would probably ban myself from the provider. It just seems like a very bad road to go down with how they sell themselves. They make you think you have a decent chance at hitting monsters. You dont. its actually very unlikely to hit anything even 1000x is incredibly difficult on any provider. It only makes this provider harder to hit on.

All I read are stories of people doing 300,000+ spins on them and never getting anything worthy of that kind of play. Its a false notion you have a chance to hit a beauty.

They are geniuses though, Crazy different concept, amazing graphics very appealing to the eye. Everything a casino dreams of in a provider.

We all think as gamblers, okay its my time. I have played so many slots so much bonanza its going to hit. Sadly, the math model disagrees with that notion 999,999 times out of 1,000,000

The statistics on slottracker tell the story if you really want to dig and look for games you should be playing. One game no one should play is bonanza.

When I see a hit on YT and the words streamer + BTG - My tin foil hat comes out. The mention of a streamer to the CEO gets him all excited. I know that was not a hit from the streamer in question, but any software provider who gets into streaming deals is desperate for publicity.

For all I know BTG may be a great company and the CEO a great guy BUT I can't seem to wrap my head around:

1. The fake screenshot shot fiasco and the CEO and the Troll sharing the same computer.

2. In the thread where it was stated that streamers were playing Dragon born - The CEO wanted to know where???

3. He doesn't contribute to the Forum - he only comes out to PROMOTE his product time and time again.

4. The lack of feedback and prize delivery for competitions they ran or PROMISED to run and never did.

5. He doesn't even have the courtesy to reply to PM's or give feedback on Errors reported to him.

6. He let Slotsmillion know that their Games were fixed only because they took them offline - Or someone at BTG did, while they didn't bother to get back to US.

I suppose I could go on and on and there genuinely may be nothing involved here but these things stick in my head and this is why I won't trust anything they do for PUBLICITY.

I know that you have played this slot to death as well. I see in a recent thread that Golnanza (As i will refer to it from now) is running 7 Reel strips. The post is HERE and the reel strips

It certainly is an intriguing game, especially when I view as a math nerd. Must have not billions, but trillions of possible combinations. A mathematical master piece, TBH.

They certainly use different reels in the Free Spins because you very rarely see 10,000+ ways and super rarely 20,000+ ways on a spin.

The only decent fair slot out there is DOA, 8 months ago I had a 6000x win, just last week an 8000x win at $0.45, and I never played it that much...the BTG games never seem to give these big hits and have played them loads!

Netent suck in a lot of ways and I feel they would like to hide DOA as it can just pay too much, makes you think why they have never cloned it?

I stopped playing DOA because I don't like the HTML 5 version. In all honesty, it was a bad move on my part to substitute Bonanza for DOA. I think that I have lost far more on BTG in a very short time than I would have on DOA.

DOA still is the most epic slot I have played in terms of returns - hit 50k twice on it in a week. I'm still trying to figure out why is it that if someone were to hit 4000x on Bonanza it would be publicized all over yet an 8000x on DOA is a by the way.

Trust me that you are in better hands with DOA than with ANY BTG slot - DOA can be a bastard, but it doesn't take f*cking 500 000 spins and not pay above 1000x.
