Great 88 Slot by Betsoft... Not so Great!!

    Jumped on the new BetSoft slot Great 88 at Videoslots, sounded the goods! Possible 6000x bet, mix of rewards on trigger of feature? I'm into that!

    Let me skip the rant.. I triggered the feature 3 times at $3 bet (one of which was 4 scatters!) and my win? ZERO.
    One of the 'features' is to have the scatter change into top paying symbols.. sounds good, however.. if they arent in a payline you get ZERO..

    Looks like a feature, sounds like a feature, acts like a feature.. ? When it pays zero, multiple times at the top coin value of 0.10 or $3 bet... One tends to get slight slightly annoyed. I then lowered my bet rate to $1.50 and got free spins a few times actually .. two of which paid nicely, roughly $45 however I had to wager that much back just to trigger it again! The next 2 and final 2 free spins were the best I thought.. 9 spins each time @ 1.50 bet.. First I got $1 win.. then $2.25 tough going! haha jeeeez.

    Free spins are free spins, sometimes shit happens (usually you get more back than you wager but, hey..)

    I usually laugh at people whinging about not winning, but this had to be said! This is a genuine flaw / oversight on betsofts behalf and I would expect more complaints to come! I am chatting to Kenny @ VS as we speak just to give him the heads up haha I'm not a grumpy gambler, wait til those guys wake up and have a crack! haha

    BetSoft reps in here at all? A few tweaks and this game would be awesome. But at this stage I wont ever play it again, first time i've ever said that about a game.

    Good luck to all! Hopefully someone gets a crack at the 6000x ! would love to see that

    Hmmm....don't know if this means that the more you play it the more rtp goes up....or stabilizes.....the slot is paying below 10%...might as well drive down the highway and throw money out the window at least I will make someone's day when they find dollar bills scattered all over the road...

    On bright side...there is no where to go but up....green arrow is pointing up!!!

    I admit that I'm biased as i don't like Betsoft slots and i don't trust their software, but this game is absolute garbage!

    I don't know whether the game is just bad or if as others have speculated there could be something wrong with it, this sample is too small to answer that. Also this was in free play so i can't be sure that it's the same in real play, although free play and real play should be the same.(i played it at Videoslots in free play).

    I see that Videoslots has it listed with a TRTP of 95.4%. It's still showing the 9.8% actual RTP as was reported earlier in the thread, which is very weird.

    seems like another mistake by betsoft after their issues with locked jackpots I don't know why anyone would give them a second chance.

    Thanks, unfortunately it's nothing fancy i collect it manually. Normally i will run 4-8 instances of a slot with stop triggers for free spins and 100x bet in the base game when i collect this type of information, and i speed it up with CheatEngine so it doesn't take that long, a few hours or so. But forum member Tropicana50 is working on a slot tracker that will collect this type of stuff and more automatically :thumbsup: http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/slots-discussion/74976-slot-tracker-progress-post780190.html#post780190

    This game was annoying to get data for due to Betsoft's lackluster autoplay, you can't set stop triggers and they only allow 100 spins max in the autplay settings. Also for some reason the autoplay checks your balance when you start it, you need to have enough money to "pay" for the number of spins you set the autoplay at, which is strange... No idea why that should be necessary :what:.
