    Just want some advice on this slot please as It's slowly but surely becoming one of my faves.

    My query is does the 'bonus round choice' affect the return (in a similar way to choosing on IR, TSII, Playboy etc) - ie: affect the variance.

    It wasn't an issue before as I actually enjoyed the element or surprise as to which Dinosaur it was going to give.

    Since I've earnt 'player selection' I can never make my blumin mind up and after a 'bad bonus' find myself thinking 'what if ?' even though I should know better and it probably doesn't make much difference.

    Cheers!

    In my opinion, bonus round choice does make a difference. I think each is based on it's own volatility scale, if you know what I mean. Best way I can quantify that, is comparing let's say Velociraptor bonus to the Dilophosoarus bonus.
    I mainly bounce between these two, depending on bet size, and what my balance is in need of. Whereas Velociraptor bonus consistently pays 30 to 100X the triggering bet, on Dilophosoarus, you can vary greatly, sometimes only 10X the triggering wager, many times actually, right up to a major jackpot, 1500X was my best dilophosoarus bonus. If you need money, and you need it now go with Velociraptor. If you want to take a home run swing and go for the big one, try Dilophosoarus.

    Seems decent advice. I like the Triceratops (Running Wilds) bonus myself - had a 2000x whopper on that with 4 reels of wilds once but usually it's a low return. The bonus feature undoubtedly affects the variance but seeing as I have only ever seen 1 RTP for this game, probably not the long term % return.

    I tend to 'tut' if I get Stego, but that's only cos I've never hit anything decent when it awarded it before I go to the choose yourself stage and as for the last spin, apparently 70 or so wilds about yet not one ever 'lands' lol.

    I appreciate the feedback, especially if I'm in the process of trying to 'rescue' my balance, which I find myself doing most days :p so will look towards Veloco more often as i don't think I've ever 'manually' picked that one.

    Biggest hit so far has been Brachio (roughly £135.00 on .30p bet) but I find that one the most boring as there is no special feature to speak of other than the multiplier.

    Cheers!

    In MG games, the different bonus modes have different variances but same RTP, for example kktmd ran and collected statistics for about million spins in Immortal Romance, launching each different free spin mode about 1.6k times, all the 4 different free spin modes averaged in 40.5-41 times the bet range, but had different variances, the mode with highest variance mode had the variance about twice the variance of lowest variance mode.

    One question to the T-Rex Mode:

    Is it possible to get more than three Wild Reels?

    Think there's a SS on here in last couple of weeks with 4 wild reels.

    I've had 3 twice, both times it was 'busted' with 1x£0 and the other was just 3OAK's (1st, 3rd and 5th reel, reels 2 n 4 - no match)

    *Well I've just gone thru over 50 pages of winners ss and can't find it :( beginning to think I dreamt it lol

    Yeah, in the in-game guide/paytable it says:

    "T-rex may appear during the feature and turn up to 5 reels wild"

    But of course 5 wilds is rare, I think there has been only one screenshot of 5 reel Wild Storm in Thunderstruck II, and maybe couple screenshots of 5 reel Wild desire in Immortal Romance, and those games have been out a lot longer.

    That 5 reel wild storm is my claim to fame :p - still talk about it with mates 2 years after the event lol.

    Generally along the lines of 'we will never see that again!'

    Yes jon, i am with you here, also had more fun with the surprise element and also often find myself thinking "i picked the wrong one."
    But did play it often enough since being able to pick, to say i more or less agree with bruinsdude, with the small exception that for the "must win now" i would pick the brachiosaurus. Of all features the wilds seem to drop in the most here, on average, and i rarely get less then 20x bet on it.

    About the T-Rex, i had a few odd ones in my last session, where it actually came to turn one or more reels wild 4 times in a row, alas all without a real win, even the 3-reel one i got:(

    I also saw the screen of 4, and indeed the paytable confirms it, as finn already posted.
    All in all one of the best releases from MG for the last decade, i.m.o...

    Well Jon, here's my tuppence worth based on when I was playing it quite a lot between August and October, when it seemed like I could
    hardly ever lose on it.

    Dilophasaurus is the one with the biggest variance IMO. It is the one that is most likely to give you the big fat zero round, but then again, it is
    probably the most likely to give you the 1000x or better round (the screenie threads would seem to back this up). My best win on it is 215x bet, followed by a 204x bet. One day I'll get that damn feature to make all the stars align. I only tend to pick this feature when already ahead.

    T-Rex has been the kindest to me (3 wins over 500x bet, including two that were 810x bet). But it can be very frustrating. I've had a couple of rounds where I got no less than 5 2-reelers in a 12 spin round. And won zero on all five. Despite that, it is still my go to feature.

    Velociraptor is (as bruinsdude correctly said) the "safest" bet, if you need a 30x to 100x win to keep yourself afloat when getting low. But it's pretty capable of dishing out a big one. Maybe not as good as T-Rex or Dilopha, but it can certainly go north of 300x bet. Despite the fact that I choose this feature quite rarely, I have managed a best win of 390x bet. My next best is 104x bet.

    I really do not like the Brachiosaurus and Triceratops features. The number of wasted wilds on both of these is just ridiculous. I probably favour Brachio over Tricera because it has the ability to re-trigger . Tricera's ability to give you a respin only to then hit you with the equivalent of a 3 reel Wild Desire that pays sweet FA does not help. It is a very poor version of Sofia's running wilds on Playboy IMO. Best win on Brachio is 224x bet, best win on Tricera is only 154x bet.

    To answer D2Hammer's question (and also to tell Jon that you were NOT dreaming it - you were looking in the wrong thread mate), yes it is possible to get more than 3 wild reels. I haven't managed it yet, but someone on this forum has....asghan

    http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/showthread.php?t=32622&page=332&p=666802#post666802

    I would probably follow bruinsdude's advice on feature selection. Failing that, maybe just go from left to right no matter what happened on the previous feature so you at least get to enjoy the variety?

    it was a favourite once

    now it seams I can hardly ever trigger a free spin...and it's not because my luck has deserted me,
    it hasn't.
    When this game was hot for me it would give me between 300-600x on the free spin wins,often.
    I'd almost always pick the running wild.Sure quite often you are virtually looking at nothing back...
    but then at times you get a head start with 2 wild lines on a respin...My best was 4 wild lines,for somewhere
    around 1100 to one,apparently 5 wild lines would pay around 6000 to 1,I kept hoping...
    Good luck with it.

    Big shout to McGameboy for taking the time to give me that detailed response. :notworthy

    Really appreciate it and like the idea of going from left to right (something I have thought of in past for other games but never use as I caanot stand 'all wins x5')

    Gonna have a blast later and gotta be due a good run cos luck been awful beyond awful lately.

    Thanks to all who replied after I started this thread, will hopefully be visiting 'Winners Screenshots' later to let you know this thread was worthwhile :p:p:p

    Few months on and I tend to go for anything BUT Triceratops.

    With the experienced gained I now tend to do the following.

    1) Balance in need of rescuing, Brachio or Velico

    2) Balance okish, needs a top up but try for a decent 100x + , T-Rex or Velico

    3) Balance cool and I'm wiling to risk a shit round or hit big, Triceratops or (mind gone blank, the 5th one along)

    However all can pay peanuts or all pay great, just the luck of the draw at the time

    Good luck!

    What I do:

    Extend playtime? Brachiosarus, multiplier and getting 2 scatters constantly to tease the re-trigger keep the min win up.

    Already won "enough"? Alternate between T-Rex and Triceratops hoping for that once in a lifetime spin.

    I tend to avoid the last one (Dilophosaurus) like the plague, if I can afford its hyper variance I can also afford the hyper variance of Triceratops / T-Rex which have stacked rather than individual wilds).

    Well , to say a few words about features on JP:

    T-rex
    Because of wilds it remidns me of Wild Desire feature on Immortal Romance...top five wins are: 1257x, 816x, 330x, 277x, 211x. If you get 3 reels wild, than it is sure-big-win. However, maximum appearance of T-rex is 4, but I had rounds (though rare) without single one T-rex (stacked wild). I pick this feature most often.

    Velociraptor
    Least picked. Best win on this is 47x. It should be done as Troy (IR) or Odin (TS2) feature (rewarding wining spin with multiplier). I simply hate that splited wild.

    Brachiosaurus
    Similar as Velociraptor. Had only one decent win (247x), and only 100x was after 5-scatter trigger (so, there was no wining spin). Also, still no retrigger. It should be sure win, but that is (still) not case.

    Triceratops
    As said by others, most wild-wasting and frustrating feature, but with super potential (as T-rex, I would say).Best win here are 624x, 269x, 238x, but no 100x. With last feature this one has the most worst results and one-digit x.

    Dilophasaurus
    DOA feature in MG slot!? I wish, then I could expect something, but this....if you get wild on first and second reel in first few spins, you can get lucky. But this is quite rare. But, even in that feature I managed 299x and 179x as best wins. Others are way below 27x...
