I`m all for MGS creating new slots, but hell, how much will these new slots owe the company upon release?, with the RTP set to recuperate the huge cost of the licence :rolleyes:.

Imho this just goes to prove how lacklustre the slot devs team is when coming up with ideas for new slots :mad:.

Personally, I find these slots extremely exciting. DC Comics and Marvel movies are always a must see for me and that means the slots are too! :)

Me too gotta love em :)

But let's see if MG can come up with something new and not just Re-Hash an old slot and add all new fancy graphics it is becoming boring. This is why NetEnt has taken out the award here at CM, they are innovative and always thinking outside the box with every new slot. With every new slot I hear about that NetEnt has up and coming I am a little exited but with MG I don't even twitch now when I hear a new slot will be released.

Absolutely agree 100%!

Mg slots are so very boring now! Every slot is just a copy of an old slot with new graphics! It's like Aristocrat in the pubs here...Hundreds and hundreds of the exact same slot with different pictures...BOOOORING!!!:rolleyes:

I barely play MG anymore because of this! I mainly play Netent slots now!:thumbsup: Awesome graphics, exciting and new features... Even the gameplay in non feature play is more exciting than getting a feature on an MG slot!
At this point even RTG slots are 100 times better than MG!

Crossing my fingers and toes that 32red will open up a Netent Casino(Won't Happen Though!:( Probably exclusively licensed to MG? Could they open up a subsidiaries company and open a Netent using that?? I know It's wishful thinking but that would be awesome!!)


Cheers
