Have you tried "Lotto Madness" yet?

Hello fellow forum members! :)


I stumbled across this little gem of a slot. It's a 5-reel 20-line PROGRESSIVE slot titled "LOTTO MADNESS". I haven't heard nor read diddly squat about this game, but to me at least, I was immediately impressed about many things (potentially) it has to offer.

Here's the paytable...




And here's a screenshot of the game. It's one of those games that it keeps giving you little wins to keep you in the game, which is "potentially" great because with that PROGRESSIVE jackpot lurking in the background, amongst a host of other goodies, there's a chance to win big.




Here's the bonus round...




And the result...




The GOOD'n BAD


+ FREE SPINS bonus round


+ Potential to win the PROGRESSIVE jackpot


+ Bonus round has an upside of 10 multiplier x 20 FREE SPINS (eg. below)


+ Always lots of small and big wins to keep the game going


- In order to trigger the bonus round, you need the bonus symbols on reels 1 and 5


- It's a PlayTech game, so that will inevitably scare off a lot of people.



These were the results after a 5 multiplier x 20 FREE SPINS session on a .40 cent bet.




I like the new series of slots that PlayTech has released this year, and this is easily the best one in my humble opinion.


I'd love to hear some feedback in regards to whether or not anyone has ever tried this game.

Thank you for your time. :)

I had a play on this last week, but as you rightly point out JS, its one of those that seems to give you "a little often" and I tend to prefer the slots that give me " a lot occassionally" :D It suits my cashout strategy better - these "little a lot" slots I never win a session on - plus they bore me :) When I get $100 down, I think how the hell am I going to get that back" as the wins that are that big are soooo hard to get! With things like ISIS etc I can go $500 and still stand a reasonable chance of picking up a $1000 win or something. ISIS (etc) can decimate your bankroll but then give you a major upper, these just gradually wear you down :)

It's a "risk" thing. Like bungee jumping for the quick adrenaline rush. You spend hors going "wtf am i doing?!" followed by a few seconds of "OMG that is so worth it!" (or "OMG - never again")!! "He who dares, Rodney, he who dares..."

Those are similar reasons as to why I like games like Tomb Raider and Aztec Treasure as much as I do. But... making this game a major PROGRESSIVE & video slot is a monster plus as far as I'm concerned.


I often wonder why my favorites give me such a rush, because it pretty much all boils down to the FREE SPINS session. The dream of lining-up 5 Wilds, getting 5 scatters, retriggering FREE SPIN mode, constantly getting more Totem heads, watching the credit pile-up, and hearing the sounds of big hits... triggers something in me that immediately places that at the top of the slot heap. I still like this new game though. :)


The screenshots above were taken from practice mode, but twice I made it quite high off of two seperate deposits of $20. The key (obviously) is to get lucky with activating the FREE SPIN mode, because 10 multiplier x 20 FREE SPINS has tons of potential for a high reward.

Well put. :)


Appreciated feedback! :thumbsup:

yes fair point - I had overlooked it was Playtech and their 20 FS at 10x max is very good - the best in fac. It's based on "A Night Out", their other similar slot. Slightly prefer "Desert Treasure" myself with 10 FS at 3x.

I didn't play this slot, but I did actually load up a new Playtech last week (hadn't done any PT casinos in quite a while). It was a great change of pace from the MG and RTG offerings, and my luck turned for the better playing their slots, vp, and the progresive bj. Unfortunately cashouts take 5 days, so I am out of commission there till the end of the week. I'll check this one out next time.

I have played Lotto Madness many times since its release and although I love it it definately has its downfalls.

I have gone three hours of spinning without the free spins more than once. I also have won pretty substantial amounts. Not cashed out but hit them at least. My first decent hit was $2 a push and got the spins. 20 spins x 10. I got five scatters and it paid $1000.

I also got 20x10 on $4 a push a couple days later and got about $800. I put it to $8 a push and three spins later I got 20 x 10 again. I got 5 men and 5 sixes during those spins and was up to $3500 off a $25 deposit.

I have lost alot more than I have won though which is why I hate the fact I love the game so much lol.

what would you estimate the odds of hitting the feature on Lotto Madness?

1/150 spins?

From my own experience, I have it at about 220; although the 1/150 probably is about right.

I've had similar experiences in gameplay, namely with it going for 2-3 hours without hitting the "FREE SPINS" feature. I've probably nailed the 20 x 10 about 5 times now, and each time that has happened, it'll mark the end of a great run. Surprisingly though, whenever I have gone 2-3 hours without hitting the feature, as long as my bets were relatively low, I'm almost always around the mark I started-out at (after the last "FREE SPIN" session had ended). :confused: :notworthy


I've pretty much played this game for about an hour on average per day (sometimes for much MUCH more), and probably the absolute greatest thing about this game (at least to me) is that I can hang-around forever until a feature hits. Even when it's cold, it's never been a sharp decline, and I've never felt as though I wasn't getting good enough opportunities to cash-out along the way.


There's nothing more gratifying than to make a $50 deposit, and turn it into $1,000. I've even turned a few $20 deposits into a few hundred dollars several times.


I usually play this game slowly, gradually increasing my bets. Let's say I start out with a $50 deposit, I'll start off with .20 cent bets. If I'm up to $55.00, I'll increase the bet to $60. As long as I'm hovering around that mark ($5 up or down from that point), I'll keep increasing the bet as long as it's at least 100 X my balance (eg. .80 cent spins w/balance at $80.00).


Once I get to the $200 mark (at $2.00 per spin), I'll generally be satisfied with hanging around for that one big feature and cash-out soon after. If I drop back down to the $100 mark, I cash-out. It works the same, if I were at $500, it gets cold, and I'll cash-out at $400.


Another point I wanted to bring-up - which I mentioned in the "Winner Screenshots" thread - was that this is probably the best game for high-rollers AND low-rollers. There's not a game out there that I'd rather play if I only had a few bucks remaining in my account. "Thunderstruck", "Ladies Night", and "Spring Break" have traditionally kept me going whenever the stakes are low, but I seem to have a knack for digging-my-way out of a hole with this game (though "Desert Treasure" is pretty darn good as well).


On the flip-side, I've gone the other route, and totally blitzkrieg'd my way up by consistently increasing my bets at a ferocious rate. If I have a $100 in my account (fresh session), I'll start off at $1, and increase it to $2 after 10 spins. I'll go to $3, $4, $5, until I reach the $10 per spin mark, as long as I'm hovering around the $100 starting point. If I'm up over the $300 mark, I'll increase $2/$4/$6/$8/$10/$12/$14/$16/$18/$20 per spin in 10 spin segments. I must say though, I'll only do this if I won big the night before, AND if the small wins are frequent enough to keep me around until one of the big "FREE SPIN" feature hits.


The graphics aren't the greatest, but the features, the potential MONSTER wins (w/ or w/o the progressive feature), the keeping-you-in-the-game with small wins element, makes for a pretty addictive and exceptionally fun game that's worth playing if you go to a "Bet365" or a "BetFred" casino. It's my favorite slot at the moment. :)

I looked for a Playtech casino that would accept US players. Wanted to make a small deposit just to try that machine. Are there no Playtech casinos accepting US players? It is really icky to see all the No US Players notations. :(

I had no intention to gamble tonight but i was tempted to try the lotto madness slot johnsteed proposed. So, I found 17 euros in my bet 365 account and gave it a shot. After 15 spins something nice hit. I hope you bring me luck johnsteed!
I ll keep playing until i hit something big or bust.

I wish you tons of luck "umberto"! :thumbsup:


Nice start, connecting all five on the 20th line.


Here's a few screenshots (I don't recall posting them in the "Winner Screenshots" thread).


View attachment 4373

25 x the bet on this one...



View attachment 4372

50 x the bet on this one...



View attachment 4374


And finally, the aftermath of a 20 X 10 on a $4 bet. That works out to exactly 240 x my original bet size. Going into a 20 X 10 session, the target that I'm looking for is exactly 200 x my bet size, anything under is slightly disappointing, and anything over is delightful. :)


Side Notes:


- While I'm not absolutely positive on this one, once during a 20 x 2 "FREE SPIN" session, I quickly re-triggered the feature, only to get another 3 x 10 added to the then current session. I could be wrong - but I'm quite certain I'm right - the "FREE SPIN" session combined both, yet at a multiplier of x 10!!! Awesome, but... had it gone the other way, I would have been pretty pissed-off. :cool:


- "SlotsJunkie" could correct me if I'm wrong on this one, but I would have to think that lining-up 5 "WILD Cards" on a x 10 multiplier at the max house bet per spin of $1,000 over at "Club Monaco" would have to rank as the greatest possible win one could possible attain on a Video Slot.

I'm new to this forum, why do you guys dislike Playtech software or casinos? Thanks :)

I could provide you with tons of links, giving you enough reason to not want to touch a PlayTech operation. Some of the worst operations around are powered by the PlayTech software. Actually, the main reason I started coming to "Casinomeister.com", was to try to find out what casinos are legit AND pay. At one point, I was sick-to-death of everything PlayTech, namely because I was having a tough time winning. Even when I did win - and I had won tons there in the early going - it took forever for the winnings to end up in my NeTeller account. The most substantial wins I've had to date (made off of BJ when it was loose and very much unlike the crap version of today... my theory anyway), took forever to pay, and I even had that lovely $4,000 per week maximum withdrawal jargon to deal with... though I was ultimately paid. the majority of my deposits from '03-04 went to PlayTech casinos.


I had boycotted all PlayTech operations for well over a year, although I would still play everytime a bonus was credited into one of my (MANY) accounts.


I only decided to go back because I've had a productive year (thus far), there are at least a few legitimate operations around these days; at least 2 of them would rank in my Top-10 casinos around (Bet365/BetFred). I regret ever touching their BJ whenever I do so these days (ditto all online casinos), but there are a number of slots that are loads of fun, and I don't mind their VP where I have had some luck at getting Royal Flushes... something I CAN'T do at any MG casinos. :mad: !!!


I would agree that the other main software providers have MORE great slot games than PlayTech, but "Desert Treasure", "Lotto Madness", "Chinese Kitchen", "Vacation Station", the archaic "Triple Profits", and "Dr. Lovemore" are enough to keep me entertained. It's some of their other games... excuse me... :puke:... and some of their other ideas... just a moment... :p ... that leave something to be desired.

Regarding the retriggers Johnsteed yes they turn the multiplier into the most recent one you spun. I had 20 x 10 once and two spins in retriggered and got 3 x 2 so the remainder were at x 2 and that was the pits.:mad:

One of my first sessions - ditto - I had a 20 x 5 which was quickly turned into (15 + 3) x 3... not fun. From that point on, I ALWAYS knock-on-wood while playing. ;)
