I used to play this slot quite a bit but about a month or so ago it disappeared from all casino's. I can see it's still listed on VS but it just gives an error when you try to open it.

Does anyone know why it was removed? I had quite a few good hits from this slot and kinda miss it :oops:

I remember reading an article about how when this game was released online in the US a group of people abused the shit out of it and got heaps of money out of the game.

Something about how the first couple of spins on every bet amount had an RTP of like 130%.

I'm assuming they are looking into fixing that if they plan to re-release it.

Perhaps the landbased version if you're talking about the US, but online you would only get 2 bubbles on every betsize when you started the game for the 1st time on any casino. I don't think this would get you a very big advantage, especially not in the longer run and you'd have to be very lucky to get a big amount of extra bubbles on the first 4 spins.

On the landbased version you could try some advantage play getting on a machine where bubbles are left on the screen by the previous player.

The edge was much bigger than I expected then, I never played it on the huge stakes and haven't been that lucky going through the smaller stakes on the first 4 spins.

Yeah pretty crazy story, someone at igt really messed up haha

What a fantastic story - good for them. Thank you very much for sharing :)
Yeah it's nice to see the players win for once, something you don't see much

I genuinely like the game tho and I hope they bring it back. Landbased there's a different version of it too with a bigger bubble popping up now and then, it's called Ocean Magic Grand.

Yeah I can't comment on if/when they plan to bring it back.

I'm not even sure that this is why its down, i just assumed as much
