Ecuador Gold by Elk Studios - 4096-262144 ways not bad. :)
Champions Of Rome by Yggdrasil - so-so. :cool:
Carnival Queen by Thunderkick - easily the best of them IMO. :thumbsup:
Good Feathers by Blueprint Gaming - same old mechanic. :rolleyes:
Gorilla Go Wilder by Nextgen - arse-scratching Gary is back with 8 different island worlds. Not bad. :p

Wonder when Microgaming will next bring out a decent game. Even at LAC they seemed to be living in the past, recycling old-titles like Agent Jane Blonde and now Break Away Deluxe.

No prospects of what hardcore players want to see i.e. high variance.

When are you doing your real play on Holy Diver? Would be great to hear your thoughts on it playing for real money. IMO its a great game for wagering if you stick to levels 1 and 2 but soon as you go for level 3 then it eats. (Played over 4k spins so far on VS and 3k at LV about 40 bonuses no retrigger yet.)

I didn't realize that Carnival Queen has mechanics that I like which is an increasing multiplier on each winning spin in the bonus, cascading reels, and decent potential like Bonanza and other high varience slots. I played this on Casumo not really knowing what it was like and I got a bonus. Payed over 200x on 50 cents and the multiplier was at 23x. Pretty fun when it plays nice...

Yeah, as I said in the video Thunderkick are pretty excited about Carnival Queen and were almost effervescent with delight about the game. It's quite good.

I do like that the multiplier increases in base play then when the bonus begins it starts at whatever multiplier you had reached.

I am actually quite liking the Elk Studios one now, Ecuador Gold. It can tip some decent wins in when the FS bonus goes well. The Wilds stack up at the bottom and become sticky on reels 2-6 as the bonus goes on.

My luck with Thunderkick slots is horribole Rocket Fellas i did 25-30features on release day not a single 1 paid more than 50x, just hope its actually easier to get the feature on this since it always seems stupid hard to trigger on all there slots and 99% features pays nothing.

I liked Bloopers very much, a very fun game to play but not very volatile...Think my best hit was like 200x in FS but they occure quite often tho.
Liked the game mechanics, sounds a fun theme.
Poltava is kinda okay too.
Must try Carnival Queen, never seen it or played it yet.

Seems bonus games get tighter and tighter on new slots...
I have battered Gorillas go Wild and on the end it paid off with a 2100x on the sticky wild free spins but it took me a very long time to get a decent hit on that.
Not sure if the new version will be any better.

Break away deluxe? WTF Microgaming. Didn't like that series of their slots anyway.

Ecuador Gold looks good and Carnival Queen too although I am not a big fan of Thunderkick, never had any huge wins on any of their slots.
Think Pink Elefants would still be my fave TK game.

Gave Ecuador Gold a bash on demo play and it's a very likeable game, did a few hundred spins and the basegame kept ticking me over but no bonus to be seen. Might have to give it a go with a deposit.

Do not bother to play that Elk slot. It is pure evil and bad bad bad.

I just done and lost 3 deposits on it within 30mins and Busted SOO fast. Not 1 feature, did about 1000 spins on it as well. Shocking bad. Soo many dead spins and the pays are soo damn small. Impossible to even get decent playtime on it. Just an appalling rip of joke of a slot.

Ecuador Gold has a very tight basegame for sure. But looking at the features, with sticky wilds, massive ways AND retrigger all possible, there's no doubt potential in there. I think it looks very interesting, personally dont mind complexity if done correctly.

That said, I think its gonna get a few Tosser awards because of this happnening to me in freeplay:

1. pretty much all ways unlocked
2. got at least 15 way 6OAK of Adventurer (highest payer) but..
3. ...before the win was counted, a huge block of lowpayer smashed reel 4,5
4. and so I only got some 3OAKs instead of a huge win.

Still, gonna have at least one real money session on it.

As for others I wanna make the case that games have gotten better overall lately. Something like that Rome game from Ygg wouldve stood out as a real contender for game of the year to me in 2016-2017. Now not so much. Don't get me wrong, we (dunover) still have to go through a lot of drivel, but the "average decent release" is better at the start of 2019 than 2018 I'd say.

I did have some nice wins on it after I posted that post above. I had 2 features within 20 spins of each-other. First was 15 drops that paid £107 on a 0.40 bet and second was 25 drops that paid £130 on 0.40 bet.

So yeah it has got huge potential. It is actually a fun decent slot. But it is still tight as hell and eats your balance and the amount of dead spins can be totally brutal.

Those 4X4 symbol blocks happen like maybe once every 500 spins and most of the time they do not connect. So no win when they drop one in lol. I did however have 1 connection of a 4X4 symbol drop in on the worst symbol creating 6oaks of that blue cross symbol. It paid just under £64 for it on a 0.40 bet. But yeah the feature can be impossible to trigger. Very similar trigger rate to bonanza.

Play at your own risks I say lol :)

I wonder if I'm the only one who doesn't like Ecuador Gold. I wanted to like it, but I can't like a game I can't win on. Several deposits with lowrolling gone without a single bonus. The wins on the base game are so pathetic that you can't expect to win anything without a bonus.

Meanwhile I got several bonuses on the new Thunderkick game and I really enjoyed the game. Nice visuals, nice music, good potential to pay.

@dunover

In the video you said Champions of the Rome is the first game Riggdrasil has come out with that has Bonus Buy. That's not correct. They have a bonus buy on Dark Vortex.
