Try proven old school slots that actually can and do pay..Bearing in mind these slots just “randomly” happen to play better on release than they do 6 months down the line (they don’t really it’s just my vivid perception of reality of course) it doesn’t bode well. Irrespective of the lack of huge wins, Bonanza has stood the test of time. It’s still one of the most popular slots way down the line. Whereas a lot of copies have died a death. Millionaire seems extinct within months. Buffalo rising just didn’t (rise that is).I appreciate Casumo posting a list of big wins and the providers/slots on which they were achieved it gives us a bit of a picture behind the scenes. However the only way you can draw conclusions is to know how much was wagered through these games and the profit retained. A slot may well pay 10 people £2,000 and be lorded for it whereas a slot that paid 50 people £500 goes unnoticed because it’s not considered a big win. If a slot runs very close to trtp it’s only reasonable to assume that the slots that paid big wins gave a lot of other players a bad experience. Whereas a slot that pays more players smaller wins will probably have the greater longevity. It will be interesting to see who’s ‘Top of the Pops’ in a years time.
I gave this another go and was actually playing quite well, amazing how random slots can play hot or cold on given times of the day.
My biggest gripe with this is the multiplier wilds bonus, wilds landing making up way wins that can be a 2x or 3x or combinations up 243x ,similar setup to the Rhino bonus.
But what it doesn't tell you on the Paytable is that wilds can pay as normal 1x also, unlike the Rhino and its clones.
So you can imagine my excitement then disgust when I got a dinosaur on reel 1 and reel 6 and a wild on reels 2,3,4 and 5 and it only paid £2.40
6 oak for that dinosaur paid £1.20 and only one of those wilds was a x2 the rest x1.
If the multiplier was at least x2 for wilds then it would have paid a £19.20 minimum.
As far as I can see most slots fall into this category.I can give you a list of games that have definately played well (for me) on release then faded to mediocrity

All gave cracking wins within a few days of release,then nothing since, It cant be a coincidence
