    After signing the deal a while ago it appears net ent games have been launched in UK land based betting shops, namely William Hill's ones.

    Anyone seen these yet? I like to bet with hills but mostly do it online. If I go in the shops I do have a quick £20 on the machines but that is my limit. Curious what games they will bring to the FOBTS.

    The first one on the machines is..............

    Of course

    Every casino's favourite

    Because it never pays anything decent

    starburst

    Interesting to hear. I was last in a William Hill bookmakers about 3 months ago and the slots weren't in that one. Good to see them appearing. I would like to see more slots with betting restrictions on them replace the FOBT.

    I can't imagine they'd port the entire range, more likely it'll be all the colourful, visually - simplistic and accessible games. So it figures that Starburst would be the poster boy for Netent.

    Imagine the dismay of the staff if they had DOA running, they'd get the customary wails of "you can't be closing yet, I'm due a wildline" or "I'm literally gonna hit 5 scatters this session I swear it" :eek:

    I don't think they could have DOA, there are some strict maximum wins per spin on FOBTs (I think its £500?). Hence starburst is perfect :D

    Disgraceful!
    This vile Early Learning Centre slot is spreading like the clap in a knocking shop. I didn't even have to see the spoiler to know which slot it was.

    You just cannot get away from it. :mad:

    Every site with Gnatent has the sodding game prominent at the top of the page graphics. Most give their free games out on it.

    I go in the supermarket and there are big brightly coloured bags of St*rb*rst sweets on every hook.

    I am sick of seeing it.

    Love it.

    Always thought they should be in bookies but in the ones near me people watch you play - hate that.

    Can just imagine people hogging the terminals when they discover DOA - some will be on one all day.

    Me, I prefer the laptop for DOA and a film or documentary to keep me occupied.

    I think being clumped in the face and experiencing bright lights, spinning and starbursts has to be infinitely more preferable to actually playing this Notent mong creation.

    Don't FOBTs have max payouts? I imagine hitting a big feature on DOA for £5/spin and only getting £500 would be rather frustrating :p

    I can't see how this is going to work really, although the games are specifically 'the same' UK betting Laws (Section B3 I think?) as fun4all mentioned cannot exceed £500 max in one 'bet'

    Though it will be good to see Netent games on these FOBT's, there will have to be some major differences from the online versions.

    If players do not compare the 2 then it may work, trying hard to explain as clear as possible, things that 'happen' during online play will not be able to on these FOBT versions.

    Clear as mud, good, 'hardened' gamblers will catch my drift :p

    I think it would have been better for net ent to introduce the games into fully licenced casinos here in the UK, where they can pay up to £10,000 per spin. A lot easier to implement their games properly then. These fobts are fun for a quick £20 for me but I never have a proper go on them, because you cant win HUGE!

    Was in William Hill today, they now have Gonzo's quest on the FOBT's. Saw Starburst on there too.

    Didn't play either - why would I? Starburst is generally a no-no but i'd rather play games that aren't available online in the bookies.

    Would be interested to see what the RTP is on them both. Recommend no-one ever plays them in a bookies.

    ^^ Totally agree and recommended too!!^^

    Worked in a casino and an amusement arcade and had very good friend in the past who was a manager at WH, so have a little prior/inside knowledge. The 'takings' we used to get from these AWP'S, Club JP Machines and FOBT's would stop most gambling on the spot!

    RTP can be legally set a LOT lower than online slots (as low as 72% in arcades) so you can bet FOBT's will not be too far from this figure.

    Wow, Gonzo's on a free spin x 15 multiplier with 5OAK is not going to happen. Other incarnations already available like some of the WMS efforts are seriously poor versions as opposed to their original counterparts. I'm sure this will be the same.

    Well if the wins are capped to £500 then Starburst is an appropriate game and there's no place for high variance games there I guess., especially with a £2 max bet.

    Can't imagine playing Startburst with a RTP % in the 70's though! Holy shit.

    Thanks God!) I wait for this moment as there are only PlayTech games and they are probably bothered my. Hope, that NetEnt will diversify the list of online casinos to choose) :notworthy
