Slot bonus spoilers

Thought I start a thread so we can share the current slot "spoilers"/tells that will let you know you triggered a bonus, feel free to share other ones as I only know a few.

Book of the dead: When you hit your second book, if there is a third book on the reel when you hit it you are guaranteed a bonus.

Big Bad Wolf: Not directly related to the bonus, but if a pig is supposed to turn wild but does not do it before the new blocks come down, you have not hit anything. It will stay in it's normal version.

Jack and the beanstalk: Now, Im not 100% sure on what the tell is, but I think it's if the second chest does not make the "ping" sound, then you will hit the bonus.

Ok, Georgie Porgie, you wait ages watching two scatters fly by, then the moment you get two hitting that fraction earlier as if 'glued together' I already know the third scatter's gonna hit.

Happens with some 9-liners too on occasion :cool:

Most of these may be already known to most....

Rhino (flash version) diamond (first one to land) makes a slightly 'harsher' crash as it land, you can also tell with volume off as it lands 'heavier' - Also the case on Montezuma (again NOT the HTML5 versions)

Novomatics where the bigger the 'jerk' the bigger the win. Slight stall/jerk = small win or 'teaser spin' Some of the 'jerks' the reels go all over the place and the symbols showing at the time totally change, this is when you know the feature is going to hit 100%, Main 'culprits' are BoR and Rumpel Wildspins, includes easier 'tells' where there in no pay for 2 scatters ;)

Here's a land based tell also.

Game I play a lot (as it seems fairest of a bad bunch) "Golden Dragon"

If you see scatters on 1 and 3 (trigger is 1-3-5) and as the 5th reel is 'teasing' If you do not see the scatter pass at all, no where to be seen, it WILL drop as the spin ends awarding the FS!

Will add some more if I remember them lol!

Jack and the Beanstalk and Fairy tale legends Jack and Jill will flash the first scatter or make the 'ping' win sound when the second scatter lands when the third is coming so you know about 3-5 seconds sooner than when it lands, personally i find this one annoying.

On mg you can deselect the game window and and then reselect the game window when a game is on a heart stopper on some games the music will have changed indicating a bonus trigger, works on Thunderstruck 2 for example, deselect the TS2 window reselect it and you can hear the freespin drum sounds before the 3rd scatter lands, other games i know this works on: sneak a peek planet exotica and winter gold but there is likely many more.

A little trick that can also be done on a mg download casino is to quickly check the balance in the casino lobby on a heartstopper if its added 1x bet you've got 2 scatters if it adds 2x, 3x, 5x (or whatever the trigger on that particular game gives) you've hit the bonus, this works on any game.

Jurassic world will not do a heartstopper on autoplay when you have triggered they will just all instantly drop in, if you're playing JW on autoplay and you have a 2 scatter heartstopper, you definitely do not have the bonus, works fine when manually spinning.

Some games also subtly lag on a spin as it loads the game and/or sound effects when a bonus is coming.

Always remember Jackpot Party (how I miss that casino ) .... on all games if the reels lagged you were in for a win. Longer the lag bigger the win, shorter the lag smaller and so on. Must have been site wide as I saw it on ever slot I played - most of which IIR were WMS .... happy days back then!

Could also add a sign of total dead-ness / change game fast in here maybe?

Some obvious BUT we tend to ignore them, these are genuine tells as multiple "stubborn" sessions finally taught me!

Rhino - Diamonds on 1 and 6 - move on!
IR - Wild / Scatter or Scatter / wild repeating on reels 1 - 2 "I'm not a celeb, get me out of here"
DoA - There are sessions where it seems the scatters are removed, not even teases and rarely a single - Jump Ship
Jungle Spirit - No BSB or a tease in first 30-40 spins, get outta there!

Game displays - "Quickspin" as it is loading, red 'X' top right, sharpish!!!!

I think that's the third time i've casually seen someone mention an autoplay function on Jurassic World: where the hell is it? :p
Is it on Download or Instant, or both? Or just in some select Casino's?

Cheers

UK players need not apply. I guess NL too?

Guts website did briefly have autoplay on JW for UK players, but they switched the mobile version for the desktop version and it now does not have it.

Am I weird or just overly committed in that I never use auto play, unless on very rare occasions when I use it on DoA to play 'leftovers' after withdrawing.

I'm just waiting for the tell for when you can change a near miss into a guaranteed hit.

Neither - I do the same. Rarely use auto play. I like to be in control - mostly over my losses rather than wins.

New Jurrasic park slot from Microgaming. IF the dinosour comes and gives multiplier. Your balance will update instant just a split second before it happens. They need to fix that as ruins the fun.

On Net Ents Drive.

If the screen goes a bit dull after the second scatter, then the 3rd will come in

Haha... confirmed :) :) :). And no not weird for not playing DOA in autospin. Hand cranked is the only way!

Yes, you are weird - and you must have an enormous muscle on your index finger! :p

Another tell is on NetEnt's Tornado Farm Escape - when the feature is coming, the auto-play (which 99.9% of players use) turns off at the start of the spin instead of waiting for reel 5 to stop.
Bloody annoying - but at least you can minimise the auto-play pop-up so that you don't see it...

This isn't on all sites that have IR but on Ikibu when you get Wild Desire your balance will update before the first drip of blood starts - good for a 4 reel, not so good when you see it going up 5p
