    Hi all

    I'm normally a VP boff, but i've been playing around with various slots at various casinos for reviewing purposes. Must say the Microgaming ones seem to wipe the floor with other casino software and i'm getting fond of Thunderstruck (I know, I know - 9-line slots aren't the best in terms of expected returns but they ARE fun!). This may be because of its 3x scatter bonus (but also probably helped by 4500 coin payout the other day - 5 Ice Hammers with a Wild symbol during a free spin bonus!).

    Anyway, I was just wondering if there are any other slots people find can give regular adrenaline rushes on a similar scale?

    Cheers

    There are a few other slots based on the thunderstruck logic at microgaming casinos now. Beach party is one I can think of, and I think another is coming soon. There's also the other flavor of 9 line bonus slots, skull duggery and big kahuna, these are ok, but I prefer the thunderstruck model myself.

    Intercasino has just added some cool new slots, one of which is reminiscent of t-struck. I think its called eastern dragon. I had quite a run on this one over the past 2 days. Its a 20 line :eek: slot that you can play for pennies on up. Its got scatters as well as a bonus game. If you get a dragon on the #1 & #5 reels, it activates the bonus round, 15 free spins. All wins tripled and you can re-bonus during the spins (been there, done that!). This game played pretty loose for me, I started with $100 and played at the 10cent level first of all and pretty quickly turned that into $300! Hit a couple of dragon spins (btw, the dragon is also wild and doubles payout on a non-bonus hit). W/d $200 and played for a while longer, up down up down and stopped for the nite with $100 still in there. Came back the next nite and played it again, this time at the $.05 level and got it up to $200 again, which I cashed out $100 and kept playing that and other games till I was out. (had the $$ in neteller in a day)

    Another very creative slot they added is Cash Caper. This one is unique and comes in 2 varieties, $0.25 and $1 denominations. The .25 version is MUCH looser than the $1, but has far less potential for making a good profit. Lots of fun though. Its a multi reel (6 from what I can remember, with 1 more on each end that don't count) slot with pictures of actual US coins (on the .25 version) and currency (only on the $1 version). The money is split in half and in order to win something the 2 halves have to match up to form a complete coin/bill. You win whatever matches up. Pretty ingenious idea in my opinion. I've never seen anything similar, particularly with real money for symbols. The max coin you find on the .25 game is the golden dollar, and the highest payout I got on any spin was about $2.25 or so. Its 3 lines, so max bet costs .75 and there is a bonus game where you pick a vault and get some kind of prize from .50 up to a few dollars ($3 biggest I got). If you also find a key in your vault, it opens the big vault and you get a number of free spins from 1 - 10 I think it was. Almost every spin on the .25 version won some money, but not the same on the $1 version. BUT the prizes are much bigger on the $1, with coins up to $1 and bills from $1 to $100! I actually got the $100 bill at one point when I was down about $50-60. The bonus games came far less frequently and pay all over the place from a couple of dollars up to $25 in my experience. Never got the free spins, so don't know what that does.

    Another one to check out if you play at any RTGs is Super Diamond Mine. I like that one for nickels, once you get to the bonus game you can really clean up (won over 2000 nickels in the bonus last time I tried it at nostalgia).

    I've tried Super Diamond Mine - not bad that one true. My MG casino doesnt have Beach Party but i agree the TStruck model is the most entertaining.

    In English pubs and clubs the machines have the "nudges" concept - shame that doesnt exist in casinos but i can understand why i think - the high payouts make up for this.

    What's the 'nudges' concept? Never heard of that one.

    An occasional feature that basically means you are awarded "n" nudges (usually 1-3) and you can "nudge" any of the reels down to the winline by that number to align a win if you're lucky.

    Funnily enough, the most common manufacturer of these machines is called "JPM" :)

    I knew those machines sounded familiar! :eek: You found me out, lol.

    That's a cool feature. There are a couple of slots around that do something similar. The double diamond game (IGT I believe) does this, the diamond will move up or down, depending upon its orientation, to complete a winning line.

    Not quite the same thing... the IGT machines are automated "nudges". The fruit machines in Europe sometimes award nudges, which the player can then use on any reel or any combination of reels to total the number of nudges received - or less. Once you use up all the nudges, or hit any winning combination before the nudges are used up, the spin is complete.

    I'll tell you what though, nudges does make it exciting. Usually the whole machine flashes and on some you had a time limit of say, 10 seconds, to decide which reels to bring down. You'd always see people craning their necks to try and see what the partially-visible symbols were and whether there was the one they wanted just over the top :)

    Ah them was the days...

    Avoid slot machines in Britain. The minimum thoretical return required by law is only 70%, and I guess most of machines in pubs or amusement arcades are at this level.

    Yes indeed - thankfully a 10,000 coin online payout vs a 100 coin pub payout makes staying in with a beer an easy choice :)
