Both are just released, both with similar potential and max bet.

Legacy of Ra is the latest "book" slot, but it is Megaways. Already paid >10,000x in CM. Where BOG failed it may succeed. Could become the best "book" ever.

Pirate Gold is simply awesome! Love everything about it, can't imagine how it may disappoint me. But I haven't played it yet, so fingers crossed. :D

I will give equal chance to both slots. Not going to get crazy over it, chase a monster hit, only small deposits now and then. Just want to compare how they play and get that >1000x bet win.

Which is going to pay 1st? Are they gonna give me that long overdue >1000 withdrawal? :)

Both have real potential. Very real potential, not like ..... you know, most others out there.
But do they pay >1000x relatively frequently?

So this is it, I am going to post what happens here. Others are welcomed to share experiences on those slots or comment.

Iirc, you also had another one of these before i returned from the abyss..DOA vs..?
How'd that pan out? (i could look up the thread but i prefer your summary:p)

I am guessing Legacy or Ra will pay you sooner..the Pirates one is not really my thing, i took a few spins on it but i don't like those jackpot slots in general. I really love Legacy of Ra though..when i first found out it was coming, i totally was under the impression that it would have the exact same mechanics as it's predecessor, so a Megaways a la magic mirror!

Of course this is insane enough, and it's pretty cool. also pretty hardcore.
And on the >1000 WD: are you looking for a WD of 1000 in money or will you just WD after you hit any 1000x bet?
I'm asking as you may want to re-strategize if it's the former - instead of going for the 1000 in money, go for 5 to 10x your deposits per session and try to rack up 1000 in profit that way.

Over the years, i can count one one hand the few times i lowrolled my way into a 1000+..
The amounts of times where i could have walked with a win of 5 to 10x deposit is abysmally high though!

Being forced into low rolling due to a change in life (health, different income etc.) i was forced to keep it low, and learned to cashout small profits if/when they arise..

And once your used to that, and have a couple of good casinos offering you decent bonuses, everything seems more sunny:)

Just saying! Good luck though mate :thumbsup:

Not over yet. Just started actually. Will do both races at the same time.

Edit: In case you mean the old DOA vs Bonanza that was a hands down win for DOA. There was a wildline with 5 free spins from a battle.
I have another now with DOA, DOAII and The Dog House.

.....
And on the >1000 WD: are you looking for a WD of 1000 in money or will you just WD after you hit any 1000x bet?....

The race is for a > 1000x bet win. The withdrawal is not directly related to that, other than the fact there will be one immediately after the win. How much it will be depends on the bet size and the xbet multiplier.
ATM I cashout anything over 50, but with a >1000x win the cashout will be much higher :D

....

Just saying! Good luck though mate :thumbsup:

Thanks! :cheers:

Just to say, Legacy of Ra megaways has been on Coral for quite a while now. Good luck getting 1000x though, I played it quite a bit and didn't get anywhere close to that :(

Yeah had played it a bit at Coral a while ago. Found it an awful game where free spins very rarely hit anything. Tho did see the video on here of over 10000x stake today but not a slot i would be chasing that sort of hit on.

Yeah i knew - it was also on Pokerstars: maybe even a couple of others, but either only UK facing ones or ones i don't care for :p

I also knew it was a beast, just like the original..and have to say this is exactly the kind of game i love :p

It's the kind of game i either will waste a 100 or more on, on 10p bets, after getting my usual 10 to 25 deposit up there, or rather deposit a tenner and just hope for the best...

Just like Lightning Strike Megaways, White Rabbit, and a couple of others, it's quite remarkable how long a tenner sometimes lasts on these super high variance games! If i play Book of Dead however, i usually get absolutely nowhere...

There is a real tendency on here to rate games on whether they can pay seriously huge wins or not... but just because Legend of Ra can pay massive amounts, doesn't make it a good game.

It may be a good game, and i am not saying it isn't, but there is way more to a good game than whether it can pay 10,000x or higher.

And when you consider 1000x wins, consider this... a 1000x win at 1 in 10,000 games is 10% of the total RTP. It would have to be 1 in 100,000 to be 1% of the RTP, and a) 1000x wins won't be anywhere near that much RTP, b) this of course assumes there are no other wins above 1000x, and c) that there are very few wins between 100 and 1000x.

So no, 1000x wins on any game will be super rare. 10,000x wins will probably be no better than 1 in 10m games. And likely far rarer than that.

Some good points. I just want to see what happens if I give them a try. I also play games with 100x or 200x max potential. :D
About the 1000x, I think it is proven that DOA pays that or above every 25,000 spins.

On the high volatile free games, yes it probably does. That's 4% of the total RTP.
To be honest, for that high noon free games, i wouldn't be surprised if the average was about 40x, but 99% of the time it is aiming at 30x and 1 in 100 times it is paying 1000x or more.

I meant DOA I, for DOA II I have no idea. But my guess is that it would be less frequent in DOA II.

LoR 750 spins yesterday at Videoslots, not a single bonus round.
So it is the usual Megaways crap with a piss poor hit rate on the free spins to force people nearly to buy the bonus, that is all they are interested in.
10 years ago hit rates like this were unheard of, 1/150 was the standard.
These days it seems more like 1/500 and this defo goes for all these Megaways slots.

Managed x1,000+ on my first attempt from a £15 deposit at VS. Total win was £456. I was that shocked that I missed it as I was still trying to work out how the hell I won it:). 1AFC7DE9-8C91-4D9C-AD2A-EF9ED19F944F.png

Not a fan of LORA - hardly anything in the base game of any note and when the bonus does come, it's invariably a let down. 107x is best so far from around 4k spins. So, not selling itself. I don't tend to focus that much on things like the 10000x win - that's fine if it's me but if not, which it won't be, i can see such a win being funded from my deposits;). Agree with Trance - just cos a game spews out a hyper win, doesn't mean that it's one i want, or like, to play.

PG i find really hard to trigger the bonus/special feature - personally, I prefer Mustang Gold as it's less volatile. Rattled through 250 quid in 40ps with no bonus the other day.
