€125.00 bet - 5 scatters and get €250.00 back...
Netent in a nutshell... ;)

Slot looks lovely as most Netent slots but probably not on my playlist...
Always try new slots but I am fairly quickly done with Netent slots due to the ridiculously low payouts...
Just not a big Netent fan.

But just my 2 cents.

Mark. :thumbsup:

Looks amazing! what i can make out from the picks in the bonus game is you can make about 20 extra spins with a 3 x multiplier and a wild reel, or 20 extra spins with 2 extra wilds and a wild reel, or 20 extra spins with a 2x multiplier, a wild reel and an extra wild?

Maybe the best would be extra wild reel 2 + 4 and 2 extra wild with a multiplier x2 and then it's likely 15 "winspins" :cool:
When is it expected to launch?

hey mate, i gather that you had a really bad run on Netent, but you might just have played the wrong slots and with too high bets: they have a lot on offering, and i think i already told you once to try a different approach there, like deposit with a bonus, say 50 bucks, then lowroll on all kinds of slots you haven't played yet, there are a few medium variance slots in their pallette, and they have potential to drop a few 100 x or even a 1000 x bet, and some have a cool bonus round + free spins too.

About the scatters in this game, they pay zilch,the 250,- is a 2x bet for 5OAK 10's.
5 scatters will either be the same as three, and just trigger free spins, or they might be one pick per scatter, so 3 would get you 3 picks, 4 scatters 4 picks and 5 the max of 5.

I am not sure yet since i couldn't see any rules:)
If you get 5 picks every time, regardless of 3, 4 or 5 scatters, then it 's pretty cool, but i fear it won't.

So probably the high paying factor here is to hit 5 scatters, get one of my theorized ultimate picks, then hit it good!

It definitely has some potential i.m.o.

I think Netent should schedule their slots for the same release date as MG and maybe that would give MG a kick up the arse to come out with something half decent.

I have lost insane amounts of money over the years betting very big but this session I just had on this game might be my worst gambling experience ever.

I'm so mad I can't even type..

Let's just say 500x bet lost, two bonuses, one with a 4 scatter trigger...they paid...3x bet and 2,5x bet.

My biggest win in base game: 24x bet

I haven't even looked at the paytable but this is the worst slot i've ever played. Either the slot has the highest variance of any slot ever or it's rigged. Seriously.

I HATE NETENT SO FCKING MUCH!!!!!!

(I need to cool down) ;)

not so exciting

Played it in fun mode at Betsafe for an hour. Relatively easy to double your money - but not more than that (which is typical for NetEnt). Thereafter it goes downhill pretty quickly as usual. I don´t see the potential for a big win on this slot- seems low variance. Unless there are variation in multiplier e g 10x multiplier- but I didnt get that on my bonus rounds that showed very little variance in terms of free spins and multiplier (usually 15-17 free rounds with 1x or 2x mutliplier).
Nice graphical design but nothing extraordinary.

I must admit after original ideas like Wild Rockets, DoA and JaTB, Netent have since churned out flat-profile dross. Egg-o-sodding matic, Fisti bloody cuffs and Magic bore-tals to name a few. Little distance between wins both large and small, poor hit potential and humdrum game play. They need something more radical.

I like the new slots because of the cool bonuses and the games are fun in my opinion.

I might be the only one who thinks that Netent dosen't really need anymore "High Variance slots".

Since alot of the new/old casinos are starting to go towards multiple softwares i like the fact that Netent goes towards low/mid variance slots.
There are so many slots with diffrent variance to choose from already the "new" slots are only a bonus to me.

Played SotS the half day today... The payout is really poor.. But - as many said - often typical for NetEnt.

I'm a big fan of NetEnt. The slots are really entertaining.. no one makes such innovative slots as NetEnt (my opinion).


But after Dead or Alive and Reel Steal it is time again for a slot, which pays "properly"! ;)

Playing it at Betsafe and Im bored already. NetEnt seem to be the animation kings these days. Lots of useless animation, slowing gameplay down and adding wilds for the fun of it. Like Wild Turkey - Does the scatter REALLY need to show a bit of 'Shine' and delay each spin everytime it falls?

What happened to Stacked Wilds like the LOTR and Santa's Wild Ride that PAY when you get them?

Problem here is after the success of Starburst (which is actually a lights and sound special) they have found that low paying slots are where they make their most money.

MG realised that in the 243 Way Slots. The software provider is there to make innovative slots and rake in the cash... It's sad that Netent churn out JUNK month after month. The game play and Graphics are SUPERB but the pay table is an indication of where we are heading with them.

Soon 5x bet will be a MEGA Win and 100x bet will be as rare as 5 wilds on DOA. I really like their Slots but NICE hits on the newer slots are so few and far between its saddening.

Look at our popular Winner Screenshots - I am amazed that you HARDLY even see a screenshot from JATBS - is it that hard to win over 1000x on it? You will see the odd 100x here and there on NetEnt but the domination of MG and other softwares with nice screenies speaks for itself.

Come On NetEnt - I cant feed both YOUR 'Useless Wild' Money Gobblers PLUS MG's 243 Way Gobblers. Give us something that we will rave about :mad: - You have the right ideas but just not the savvy to create something that will make everyone rave.

Second spin on this slot ever, and I've already used up my good luck. Obviously it was with play money too.

Just had my first go on it (still playing actally!)...

Well first impressions were it was SHITE! Did 50 €1.25 spins and lost €50 = an RTP of 25%... :eek2:

Lowered my bets to 75c and, of course, got the free-spins 3 goes later; Wasn't too bad because I had reel 2 wild and 8 extra spins (I think - memory not that great!)

The next lot of free-spins was off 4 scatters; no extra wilds this time - 6 extra spins and a x4 multiplier - paid quite nice.

But my 3rd lot of free-spins gave me over the bet x100 mark!
Only 10 spins, but with reel 2 wild, an extra wild and all wins x2; hit a "Big Win" 3 times, the one below being the best of them.
Final result was €176 = bet x141.

Just shows you shouldn't always rely on first impressions... :rolleyes:

KK

{Edit to add} Just got my 4th lot of free-spins; 14 spins @ x3 with reel 2 wild (again!); Paid €163.80 from a €1.75 spin = bet x 93.6 :D

People have been complaining a lot about recent NetEnt games being low-variance, I think this game is just a lot higher variance than people realize. The line-pays themselves aren't high variance, but the right combination of bonuses with the scatter trigger can result in constantly winning wild lines with some fairly big payoffs. I had a feature pay just over 100x today, but still managed to be down slightly after 200 spins.

I think once people play it for a while to get a feel for the game, they might like it a little better. It still won't match something like DoA or BDBA for variance, but it seems like an okay balance to me. It does have a bit of a potential problem with the combination of low variance line pays + high variance feature that makes the main game feel like a bit of a money bleed, but you can help this by playing fewer lines (with a larger bet per line) if you want a little more gamble in the main game. Combine that with a bit smaller overall bet and you may find your chance of winning a little better.

Played it the other day with bonus money.
Nice looking, but low variance.
The bonus game was a bit fun though with the different options you can get.
1-2 whole wild lines (2nd & 4th lines). :thumbsup: (i got the 1 on the 2nd)
Extra wild symbols. Extra 1-10 spins. 1-2 multipliers.

IMO the problem with Netent isnt the variance it's that they just dont pay big enough ammounts (unless your playing DOA or Reel Steal both slots have insanely high variance). Netent's slots seem more focused towards balance preserving small hits. Thats good if you want to play for a while not so good if you want to win. Youll never be up enough to cash-out.

This game's new and as such we should be seeing some winning screenies on this forum and all we have seen so far is one screenie that paid 150x the bet. Well considering these slots return a feature on average 100-150 spins you will most likely lose your balance before a feature and since 150x is apparentally a huge win the best you can do is hope to win your money back.

Gave this game a shot last night on a free chip. Decided to stop playing before the game made lunch out of my balance. Just dead spins and constantly getting the first two scatters but never the third. The game also insists on going into super slow spin mode every time the first scatter shows up. Huge graphics and a small paytable.
