Yes it's quite good fun researching a new pc, then using the customise option and they build it for you, the pre built gaming PCs on sites like currys seemed to have improved too as when I was looking to buy a PC in 2012 they had very little.

site is good for comparisons. ]

I never knew the crypto mining folk were now buying up most of the GPU stock, looking at the integrated graphics on cpus and the best one I can see ( rx vega 11) is only just a bit short of my radeon 7770, which is some achievement.

That google stadia doesn't seem to have taken off afaik, as it was kind of predicted to be the future of gaming in that you wouldn't need an expensive PC or have to keep upgrading to play the latest titles.

Can you do a video about the rivalry of players , was there beef between people from different areas that thought certain services or sites were “their area” ?

I have heard about people sabotaging buttons to stop other people playing after them, Was this sort of stuff common ?

As an avid 'clued up' player back in the day (although in hindsight I missed a lot also) yes there was a lot went on.

If I sat and thought about it and also had a catch up with my ex-slots buddy, I could quite probably write a book lol.

Quick couple which spring to mind was the chewed up Galaxy chocolate in the coin mech and one pub in particular where we quickly had to order bottles of Budweiser, not because we fancied another drink but as the quickest thing that sprang to mind to be able to protect ourselves!

LOL... superglue the start button in, so anyone put money in it would spin continuously and any holds offered couldn't be taken. If a feature came in it would collect first flash. I remember once swapping the spade connectors over when an engineer had a machine open and went to the toilet, so the pulse slides for the 10p's and £1 coin tubes were reversed. Collecting 80p wins continuously meant £8 lol. Trouble is, if it forced £2 on you, you only got 20p.

Another one you could do was have a couple of flat lithium button cells on you. If you got the chance, swap the one on the circuit board for a dead one. This meant every time the machine was turned off, it couldn't remember its state of play and would reset. So imagine the last video @ChopleyIOM put up where after 'reset' it would be happy to let you get 2x Crazy Reels features for guaranteed profit....

Almost EVERY club fruit and AWP had that same property - after 'reset' it would be happy to allow a brief spike by whichever method you applied, even the old Bar-X Electrocoins would 'go above' before settling and reverting to the usual vomit-mode.

How do you get the chance to swap batteries on the circuit board without anyone noticing ???
It simply clipped in a little blue lithium cell, or a silver one. In arcades quite often you would have engineers in who would go off to take phone calls etc. I never did this, but saw it done once.

An old UK AWP by JPM that revolved entirely around a single true skill feature.

Friday night slots.

Some casinos freeze sounds/graphics when the Bandicam is in action as you saw, going in and out of it - simply right-click once on your mouse somewhere within the Bandicam frame on the game screen to prevent this.

Yes I worked it out fairly early on hence no problems after the first few minutes of the video. Bit of a nuisance though!

Allegedly IR has been remade again but it's still a bit shonky compared to the old Viper Client version.

I was catching up on your online slot vids last night, when you played neon pyramid, which I had never heard of, so typed it into ladbrokes' search box and there it was, checked the rtp - 95.8 or thereabouts, gave it a tentative go and the first bonus paid about a fiver, raised my stake to 60p and hit another bonus, which nearly opened the pyramid to the top, and went for £200 smakeroos, so :thumbsup: Chop, wouldn't have played it otherwise.

Similar to your problem at unibet, it is so hard to browse the game pages nowadays on most sites and be intrigued by a new title, very cumbersome and unorganised I find. Ladbrokes had it right with their old games section, smaller game pics so you could see more on one screen, a couple of scrolls up and down and you could see the full offering.

If I can return a game tip, be very wary of cleopatra:queen of the desert, brutal codswallop that makes playtech slots look advanced.

On that vid you also gave immortal romance a bash, I doubt this new version is identical to the old one, the variance seemed different when I gave it a little bash last night. I don't know why a html reissue can't be the same as flash, it's simply moving graphics after all.

Same on Betsson group sites.
Most sites will have some way for you to search or sort by provider, either by checking a box, or maybe typing in "netent" will show you all slots form that provider etc.

Cant understand how big sites like Unibet, betsson etc does not have a way to do this.
Seems like such a simple thing to implement, and im sure a shitload of people wants the function.

Neon Pyramid is a great slot IMO, glad you won on it :) TBH it was kind of lucky I chanced upon it at all, the thumbnail stuck out to me when the slot was released and I like 'neon themed' games, that sort of 80s style hyper-lurid vibe, so I gave it a go and found it was a really good game. It helps that it's got great music too, the feature music in particular.

I remember back when Microgaming were the big deal and they had the Viper client, every time a new slot was released to the client it was quite exciting to see what they'd done, these days there are so many slots being released the vast majority of them I don't even look at.

I haven't noticed any differences in how IR plays in its new HTML5 version, but it's painfully apparent they've tried to reduce the amount of data it uses, the jerky animations are missing so many frames they're practically like slideshows.

ah maybe that's it, it felt all very cramped to me and like you say jerky, the other aspect is I wasn't confident of ladbrokes rtp accuracy. Game of thrones 243 is 95% rtp, yet IR the full fat version, thunderstruck 2 I couldn't even find the rtp!

It's a small sample [coral, lads, and will hill] but these sites all seem keen to have an extra help page (of their own formulation) for each game outside of the game, instead of locating the rtp info from the ingame paytable info, it needs sorting out.

I've always thought the uk bookie style sites don't know much about slots and just have them as a side serving, but the way they've handled chopping the rtp leads me to believe they are a bit more cunning and have thought about the potential reaction to it, losing trade to sites that haven't.

That win was just over 300x on my first ever play and yet no limit slots haven't given me anything close after several attempts, so the variance of neon suits me better, more chance of a good medium win, and not impossible to land a bonus.

I only started slotting in about 2015, didn't play a microgaming slot until around 2017 as the sites I played just didn't have any, so I never saw how the viper client thing worked, is disappointing when things are changed/removed which were better before, no doubt the drive for efficiency and to make more money, while forgetting about the end user experience.

Three new online slots played and reviewed. From Play 'N Go there's:

Cat Wilde In The Eclipse Of The Son God
The House Of Doom 2 The Crypt

and from NetEnt there's:

Rome: The Golden Age (apparently this can hit for over 100,000x stake)

If you watch the video on YouTube there are timecodes for everything.

Latest video on the channel is for a brilliant old £6 jackpot UK AWP called Bonanza (NO NOT THAT ONE) by a company called JPM.


Also there was this one too for POP.
