Hopefully there's no problem with me starting this thread, if there is I'm sure I'll be told!

Please note this is a personal channel and is in no way a commercial venture for me, so I'm not making any money at it (quite the opposite in fact!), there's no affiliation going on or anything like that. It's simply a case of me enjoying slotting (both online slots and UK AWPs down the local pubs), and I've enjoyed watching other people's escapades on their own YouTube channels, so I figured I'd just start pointing my phone at my playing adventures, grab some videos, and upload them to my own channel.

Somewhere along the line I started to add an increasingly jabbering commentary as well.

In the last few weeks I've been using Sony Vegas Movie Studio 11 to properly compile multiple clips of a single slot into a full sort of 'session review'. For the first three weeks it was 3Dice (Medieval Moolah was Week 1, Ching Ching was Week 2 and Fortune Falls was Week 3), for this weekend I've done Hitman (MG).

My intention is, where time and spare cash permits, to get one slot done per week, edit all the footage together, and upload it to the channel.

Please be aware that my language does sometimes enter the realms of the profane, so probably NSFW and/or when delicate ears are around.

The latest additions are the Hitman video and also the subsequent MG wagering hell that I've seen once too many times for comfort now! :icon_evil

Another great vid Chopley - keep em coming :)

Couple of things:

Boogie Monsters is 13 Spins @ x5 not x3, so perhaps more high variance than you thought for grinding out wagering?

Just IMO some of the better slots for grinding wagering are the twister/ho ho ho games which are very low varience, along with chucking in a bit of the 5 line slot The High Life which has served me well for wagering before.

Look forward to next weeks installment!

Well it certainly changes the maximum possible win in free spins, although considering I don't think I've ever had a good 5OAK in free spins in years of playing that slot it's more theoretical than anything else :D

TBH I can't help but think that you get to a point with an MG WR where it doesn't matter what the hell you play, and a decent hit of any description just becomes impossible to find.

My modus operandi with an MG WR is high variance slots early on, hope for a decent hit or two, and then try to grind it out on safer low variance slots when the inevitable feral stretch starts. Even then I'm regularly taken aback by just how nasty the whole casino turns once the home stretch is reached.

I'm half inclined to start recording the sessions in full and doing some proper statistical analysis, but then it stops being a recreational activity!

I actually got the 3 stacked wilds on free spins the first time I ever played (s)Hitman, 90p a spin and it paid 232 pounds something, if I remember rightly. Kudos for getting the 225, about 700-1....

The win in that video is the first big raise I've had on Hitman in over four years.

Right when I started playing I had two wins of around £500 from a 90p stake, both off the assassination bonus round.

From then until the other night, literally nothing even close - that's a dry spell!

Indeed a good result 500 off a 90p stake is rare - if you want to make a soporific video to help us get to sleep after a good session, post one on Cashapillar :)

Hi ChopleyIOM:

I had a chance to look at a few of your videos (I've done a few myself). I just wanted to publicly complement you on your insightful narration of the videos. You are very knowledgable about the games ... do a nice job with the editting, and give a great idea about what the individuals games are like. I agree with a lot of your opinion of the games.

I hope you keep posting. I'll keep checking back from time-to-time. All of my experience is on land-based casinos, but I do have a special interest in the JACKPOTPARTY.COM site, as I moderate the Player's Life website (hosted by WMS Gaming). However, I am a player, and a fan of anything involving slot machines.

Bruce Lee @ Jackpot Party this week.

May be of interest to folks who can't play there as they're UK only. They run WMS slots which I believe are the same/similar to slots that are run at B&M casinos in the states.

AWPs rule OK

After a pretty poor run at online casinos of late, (even as a low-roller, a bad streak can hurt a bit), it was time to get out to the local pubs and hit those good old compensated UK AWPs.

It's nice to take on gambling when you know for a fact you can win ;)

If you have some volume going on, there's some nice trance music too!

Reviewing Rival

Footage here is a couple of weeks old so I've got a lot more experience with Rival in the interim, these are my impressions from my first couple of sessions playing their slots, so forgive me if I sound like an idiot half the time because it was literally the first time I'd ever played their slots.

The facts of the matter:

Casino - Tropica Casino
Software - Rival
Deposit - £100
Bonus - 1777% to a maximum of £1777
Bankroll - £1877
Wagering Requirement - 65xD+B (£122,005)
Max Cashout - 0.5x Bonus (£888)

You join the 'action' as £70,000 has already been wagered with my bankroll above £2000, which is why I decided to start filming, as it was entering the realms of the achievable.

Only another £52,000 to go......

Why don't you just install screen recording tool instead of filming your screen with camera? :)

Great videos anyway :)

Why don't you just install screen recording tool instead of filming your screen with camera? :)
A few reasons :D

1) I play on several different PCs, there's a laptop down in the kitchen (this has a 23 inch TFT sat on top of it and external speakers connected to it, so it may not be apparent footage from this location is from a laptop), my main gaming PC (this is where most of the footage comes from, the footage on the big DELL monitor), the media centre PC on the 40 inch telly (I use this when I want big screen and 5:1 sound slotting :D), and a laptop up in the bedroom (reserve location not used very often).

It'd be a real hassle to have the software installed on every single PC, and to collect all the footage together. As it is now I can just take my camera with me to each location, so all the footage is on one device and thus easily transferable.

2) I like to 'use' the camera sometimes, to show my surroundings, or 'emote' with it, do annoying extreme zooms or long shots and stuff like that. None of that would be possible with a screen recording tool. Using a camera feels far more natural than just harvesting footage from a screen recording tool.

3) I like to do the commentary as I'm recording, filming what's happening on screen with a camera and commenting as it happens works best for me. I don't think that could be recreated well with screen recording software.

4) I used to work as an Online VT Editor, so I enjoy the process of editing everything together to get the final video.

Great videos anyway :)
Thanks :)

I wanted to let you know, sir, that I love your videos (especially the long ones) and you're the reason why I found this site (you mentionned it in one of your recent videos).
