Is JJ2 the most volatile slot ever created!

So all of this is my own stupidity and I'm not looking for sympathy, however, want to warn others about Jammin' Jars 2. I play for entertainment purposes, have a monthly budget and even if I win big, tend to put it all back throughout the month (except for rare occasions where I skim off the top) cos I play to my means, for entertainment.

Jammin' Jars 2, offers zero entertainment. I got lucky the first time I played, 700x stake in total with some 'okay' gameplay on 50p then hit a 1384x Giga Jar feature after 62 discs. The next build (from the Lvl2 Boost) I had some 'okay' playtime till I hit Lvl 4, then it took 800x stake, 3000 spins and 32 discs from Max to hit the Giga Jar, again all on 50p for 84x with one bonus to show for my efforts from Lvl 4 (mental for 3000 spins), again getting a boost to Lvl 2.

I played it slowly after this, the odd 50x stake deposit and built to max, (don't know how much I lost but had 'some' playtime) then thought it surely can't take long to activate this time (apart from the previous 1384x Giga Feature it's not gave much back so must be due something). How wrong I was, from Max, 1800x stake (£900 on 50p stake) and 130 Discs to activate the Giga Feature, which paid 60x and gave yet again a boost to Lvl 2. In this time I had 2 bonuses, both paying less than 10x.

In one sitting from Max, it took 1400x and no win over 40x, for the last 400x deposit (£200 on 50p) I recorded the 'highlights' on Bandicam and got 25 seconds of footage, 2 Fruit Blast Teases, and not even 2 jars teasing once, the 400x lasted 16 minutes in total. How is this entertaining?

I have no doubt it will pay big, and have seen videos, of massive base game hits, great bonuses and bet we will see the 50,000x max wins soon. But in general, this game is horrendous, offers no entertainment and rips through deposits without so much as a 2x win. At the lower build levels it 'can' give 'some' playtime, but once you hit Lvl 4 it closes up. Thankfully up until this, I'd had a good month, so haven't lost too much but can't help think, how much more entertainment I could have experienced had I stuck to other games and will now definitely take a break (only the re-make of Jurassic Park will bring me back early!). This episode has confirmed why I like, and mostly play, the 'old skool' Microgaming and NetEnt slots, where even though I have no chance of hitting 50,000+x, I will get entertainment, playtime and most importantly (getting excited about the occasional 1000x hit) enjoy the games.

So, is JJ2 the most volatile game ever created or did I just get really unlucky? There is no doubt, for the amount deposited and played, I'd have seen more game time, entertainment and wins along the way, even on DOA2, San Quentin, Money train, Chaos Crew... etc.

I guess it's all subjective based on personal experience.

One players JJ2 is another's Gemix....well, maybe not to that extreme, but I've had fair success on JJ2.

Although, I've done what I do on Wild Swarm and entertained the idea of the Giga Jar trigger a bit too much (reckon about 300 spins and still counting).

For me, San Quentin is in a whole new volatile league of its own, even compared to Chaos Crew - the difference for me being that Chaos Crew will dish out bonuses to anyone, San Quentin feels reserved for bonus buys.

No Limit City have become No Go City for me now, I'm UK so what's the point? Again, this is based on my own experience but their latest games feel designed purely for bonus buys with everyone else feeding, since the super bonus buys appeared at stupid x your stake. I mean, playing something for 20p a spin when others do a 20p stake £400 bonus buy just doesn't quite sit right.

Just a word for the re-release of Jurassic Park by MG, it will be found with lower RTP's at some casinos. Just don't want to see a similar post upon your return ;)

So Is Jurassic Park re-make confirmed? I expected it to have a multiple math model if it was but always check anyway, and there are a few casinos that still have MG at best RTP (Casino of Dreams, Betway), is there a date?

Sometime in July I believe, almost all MG is released with variable RTP versions now.

I opened JJ2 took one look at the game mechanic and closed it straight away, I don’t play games like that, they never end well, well for me at least!

Jammin Jars is turd, JJ2 looks like it takes that turd and adds Jurassic Park levels of turd on top.

I remember when Bomanza first hit the scene and the seeming insanity of the bonus frequency. Key difference is that whilst Bonanza infamously doesn’t produce the sort of wins you think it should (blocking scatters/red gems anyone?), it’s base game if pretty fair and can chuck in the occasional 100x plus win. Whether you find that entertaining is up to personal preference.

JJ2 and the likes dispense with much of the base game and go straight for the headline wins. Way too many slots to list here which also do this but a case of Bonanza bonus frequency coupled with DOA base game fun. So essentially taken arguably the worst of each slot and combined them for YouTube catching ‘000’s x wins which most are not going to see.

With the new regulations in the U.K. and upcoming auto spin ban (you dumb UKGC muppets) providers are going to have to produce slots which provide more going on if they are to retain a lot of the players over here.

Played for 2 giga features,first one cost a fortune to trigger,first paid next to nothing, the second triggered very soon after
reaching max, dropped in 1000x on the very last spin,might have made a small profit overall but wont play it again mainly
because of the incoming auto play ban.
Had a real sting in the tail,the 1000x win seems to have triggered the biggest losing streak i have ever known, 2 weeks
of total misery, cannot win a bloody thing on any game.Finally admitted defeat tonight and dropped my deposit limits right
down before things got silly.
