Actually I want to explain this a bit further.
Feature buys were banned by the UKGC to PROTECT the players to try and avoid massive losses within minutes for players.
And this is a part of the industry I do not like, it stinks and it is rotten!!!

Blueprint and most likely other providers to follow should maybe try to use their brains for once and realize this was a measure to protect players, instead of respecting this they used their sick and twisted minds to come up with a mechanic to bypass this.

We all like slotting and a bit of gambling, that is what brings us here together but this industry surely has it's dark and rotten side, one I really dislike...

Already a Facepalm 2020 contestant for me!

Taking away the ethics of the way Blueprint is getting round the bonus buy ban in the UK (I don't agree with it because all it will do is bring it to the attention of the UKGC imo) what is the difference between doing a £100 spin on Secret of the Stones and buying a £100 feature? With the former the money is potentially lost in less than a second whilst with the latter it will last at least a minute whilst the bonus round plays out?

I dont think the two are comparable.
I sometimes buy a white rabbit bonus or a money-train bonus for €10-20
How often do you think i do €10-20 spins?

But either are a 10-20 bet with hopefully a positive return at the end of it.

The point Lotusch made was that those high bets should be banned to protect the player. Well if that is the case, then why is a 100 spin on a slot OK but not a 100 bonus buy.

Not sure how they think when they make the rules regarding gambling if im being honest.
Some decisions they make really makes you question if they have ever seen a slot apart from the one armed bandit they saw in a cowboy movie when they were 12 (wich was 200 years ago).

Maybe its just because its easy/easier getting sucked in to chasing losses when buying bonuses or something.
Even i, that rarely go over 20p in my normal play have no problem spending €20 on a bonus once in a while.
But it sure is tempting to keep buying them, isnt it? Atleast i think so.
Thats why i dont do it very often.

I'd imagine Bonus Buys are the lesser of two evils somehow, given that there's almost certainly a guaranteed return attached to it

God knows how many spins it might take to even trigger a bonus these days anyway. Yes you heard it here first: Bonus Buys are safe! (er)

Still adamant that BBs should be 'capped' per session so players can't go apeshit. A way providers track your gameplay ID so you don't hop onto other casinos. Should be a cinch as they track everything else already :D

It never really appealed to me. I've bought the odd bonus on White Rabbit and Extra Chilli but never for real money on any other slot. Maybe that's because I never had that mega win on WR, I can see how it would suck you in if you get a 2000x on your first buy...

Any bet placed at £100 is comparable isnt it? From black on a roulette table to a horse race, football to a bonus buy or spin?

Its just the odds for outcome that differ is it not?

My opinion is: yes and no. =)

If i put €10 on a football match, i get 90 minutes of fun out of it.
How many €10 spins will you have to play to have 90 minutes of fun?


But i really think we are getting off-topic about this whole thing.
The most important thing, that we all need to band together for, is bringing back bonuses to Swedish players.
When thats fixed, we can take a look at other issues.

Todays games are up!

I've also updated Amatic for the UK, so the following games are now available:

Allways Joker, Allways Win, Beauty Fairy, Bells on Fire HOT, Billys Game, Blue Dolphin (great volatility), Enchanged cleopatra, Flying dutchman, Golden Joker, Hot 27, Hot Choice (cool free spins feature), Hot Diamonds, Hot fruits 20,40 and 100, King of crown, King of Dwarves, La gran aventura, Lucky Respin, Party Nights and wild 7.

And a few new releases from Amatic:
Book of Pharao (97.10% RTP on a Book of .. game is not bad)!
Crystal Fruits (intereting multiplier feature as a sixth reel)
Fruit box
Hottest Fruits 20 & 40
Lucky Joker 5, 20 & 40 (a sizzling hot with stacked wilds)
Super Cats!

And a novo game I didnt plan to release was Gold Star Fruits, because it wasn't certified for Sweden. Turns out it is now so I'm going to release that one as well. Feels a bit similar to Mighty Hot Wilds by Inspired or Brilliant Wilds by IGT.

Questions, shoot!

Quite like this game. It’s launched the Powerspins feature twice in five minutes.

And it doesn’t have the usual Amatic awful stretched graphics - they seem to have realised lots of people have phones with big screens now ;)
