Yep, this game is a brutal as sharing a cell with Big Bad Bubba or Rolf Harris. Feature capped at 150,000x and you really need 4 or 5-scatter triggers to have a chance of big wins.

To buy the 4-scatter is 400x bet, the 5-scatter an eye-watering 2,000x bet!

Can't wait to see the streamers get ass-r*ped in the showers if they try that out!

I bought 20 features at 2,000x bet, made a slight profit on 3, one paid 3600-odd x. Now where did I drop that bastard soap....

I would not even give them the time of day or advertisement of their slots.

Absolutely disgusting any company would keep doing slots with 2000x stake feature buys.

No wonder UKGC banned them. Let's hope other legal bodies do the same.
I agree with your point about them encouraging such damaging gambling behavior. It does nothing for responsible gambling. In fact I would suggest that folk buying numerous 2000x stake feature buys will lead to triggering SOW requests from responsible casinos :thumbsup:

Just my first impressions but took me 500 or so spins to get a bonus that paid x30ish yesterday with no significant win to speak of in between.

Drained the balance probably returning around 20% in the process.

Great theme and like the Punk Rocker style screens again for the near misses but certainly no Punk Rocker in terms of volatility or excitement.

This feels like a 'Badge Of Glory' game where only the select few will be proud enough to display a crazy win on youpube whilst the rest of us pay for it.

As No Limits biggest fan im not the biggest fan of this one and unless it plays very differently next time there wont be another.

Let's hope not... Nolimit City is a brilliant provider that should be experienced by all who enjoy slots.

As for the bonus buy.. it's there.. So what? I most definitely have a slots addiction but would never risk 2000 X stake buying a feature.. but somebody might. Chasing 5 scatters is insanely difficult and someone might just want to purchase it at a chance of winning the advertised 150,000X win. I just don't see many people wanting to attempt it. If someone wants to foolishly lose their shirt & shoes buying the 5 scatter feature over and over again, more power to them.. it's their choice. Are we out here trying to save the world and the whales?

I see what Nolimit did here.. Streamers would attempt such a risk and showcase the slot on their channel more, thus providing more exposure to the Nolimit brand. I think that's a smart business move!

No we are here to say any company that makes games with a 2000x feature buy is a joke.

And the sad thing is many people would try buying it at that price. If they didn't it would not be an offer.

Luckily we do not have the option of the bonus buy here. But you think it is so great feel free to use it.

So what do you think the going price should be to buy a feature that has the potential to payout 150,000X stake?

Well definitely not 2000 x stake. And yeah i can imagine lots will get 150,000 stake.

A slot like Extra Chilli that can pay over 10000x has a realistic buy of 50x. 2000x is frankly disgusting for any provider to add. And yes the fact that they are advertising a 150000x win that will probably never be seen to entice people to but the feature is wrong.

But like i said you think it is so great go buy loads chasing an impossible dream.

Ok, we'll agree to disagree.. as previously stated, I would never buy a feature for 2000X stake, but that doesn't mean others shouldn't be able to if they choose to.

I'm plain and simply ignoring that feature buy when playing this slot.. why try to police what people can and can't do with their money?

They could have kept the prize waaaaaaay lower if they lowered what the average bonus pays.
As an example, Doa2 feature buy only costs 66x but has potential to hit over 100 000x.
Another key difference is that the bonuses you pay for in San quentin (the 4&5 scatter ones) are extreeemely hard to land naturally while a doa2 bonus is easy to land (atleast in comparison)
From what ive seen (tiny sample of me buying bonuses) they can be shockingly bad aswell, often giving back just 10-30% of the buy cost.

I think its crazy to have a bonus-buy that costs €400 on minimum stake, but im not the target audience for it either i guess.
I wouldnt really care, but i think things like this can have a negative effect on regulations implemented, and thru that, a negative effect on my slotting experience.

The thing is, due to the construct of the bonus via the 5-scatter trigger, it has a very high average pay, around 1920x bet. So it has to be 2000x.
I played some earlier on free play and can say I got nowhere close to that
Obviously I know it's over a lot more bonuses than I played, but still.

You wouldn't have - the volatility of the 5-scatter is so high that the majority of the pays are in the 400-1500x range, some will go 2-4k but if you count how much the MEDIAN bonus would pay to cover the 100k+ hits, then it will be well below the average 1920-ish.

P.S. if anyone wants to see what I mean, try it here:

I know they are UKGC-licensed, but seem to have 'forgotten' about IP-blocking UK, so as I assume the members here are all 18+ gamblers of mostly mature years (I HOPE!) give it a trial:

Sorry, plain english please!

Are you saying the average 2000x bonus buy pays 1920x?

Probably. Which would mean most pay no where near the cost to pay for the high wins that are supposedly possible.

I tried 10 bonuses just at 2000x stake. Only one paid just over the cost. Lowest one was about 100x.

Unless you hit the lucky win you would lose one hell a lot quickly buying bonuses at that price.

To invent a game that really needs a 5 scatter trigger to hit huge with a base game that is non existent really is very bad . It is basically telling you this game can pay huge. But to have a chance you need to pay 2000x stake. Can't believe providers have sunk too this kind of low.
