Available now at the Club World casinos - tried it in fun play; seems pretty mediocre to me. And there's already Year of the Ox available with the same theme...

Also, there's a problem - this game has a JP available by hitting five jackpots symbols on a line ... but coinage is not fixed ! 25-line play is mandatory , but there's the possibilty to bet from 1c to 5$ per line ... where would be the interest to bet high in this game ? Unless that is a "disguised" RJ , showing how RTG software is ...."random" and fair with their slots :rolleyes:

Like all other RTG Random Jackpot's, I'd say the bet amount would give you an 'increased' chance of hitting the random jackpot.

Yep - but it is not really advertised as a RJ there - wouldn't it be quite misleading players making them thinking they have the same exact odds of winning JP ... when in fact it's not true ?


Oh, by the way, there's a new free chip at Inetbet - CDCGV for 5$

I tried it at two casinos and do not like it at all , would much rather play the sister ox game..................laurie
I agree I did not like the game either. It is too much like year of the ox.

Heya,

As you correctly state, it's not a random jackpot, it's a symbol-driven progressive.

In this instance RTP is compensated on bets above the minimum level by decreasing the percentage of bet (increment) that is sent to the jackpot.

Another way to maintain constant RTP across bets on a symbol-driven jackpot would be to adjust reel strips as the bet level increases, however in this case only the first measure was used.

Woooof

Thanks, interesting way to deal with this problem , thanks for the explanation.

But , i'm not really sure of still understanding every point - Let's say that at the .25c level, 2% of each bet goes to JP , and at the 2$ level, only 0.50%.

If the reels aren't changed from one size of bet to another ... where goes the 1.5% not going feeding the JP ? They can't return to the player , as base game payout (without JP, so) should be the same for each player if reels are kept the same . :confused:

Heya,

The increment changes are very small (and the base contribution of lowest bet is well under 1% contribution), and as average jackpot value is a calculation of bet at the time, the average jackpot is proportionately higher for higher bets, hence RTP remains relatively constant (though there is a small declination).

In most jackpot scenarios the base game will be kept constant while changes to feature reel strips are used to match RTP as close as possible across all bet levels.
It wasn't done in this instance but is the norm to avoid any RTP shift (though sometimes it's not possible to precisly match RTP (to 0.1%) over all bet levels purely by using reel strip changes)

Woooof
