Multiple votes allowed - this is as much for the benefit of the software providers as anything else :D

I'd also like to ask you, which in your opinion is the best "pick-em" style bonus game in your opinion? For me, it's "What On Earth".

What On Earth is a great pick'em bonus round.

I also like the Starscape/Dinomite style where you pick until you match three and there is also a multiplier symbol.

once got 5 thors on it too, but only won 500, thought the jackpot would have been more.

10,000 coins. In a way thats good though as its still a decent reward and if it were any larger it would reduce the award on something else which is more likely to occur.

I'll tell you what I hate - I hate slots that have scatters that have to be lined up on certain reels in order to trigger the bonus round. Scatters are scatters - let 'em be scattered.

I had to vote for 'free-spins' because some of the 'pick em's are as exciting as picking someone else's nose!
(Gift Crap springs to mind!)

But I do like the rarely mentioned Chain Mail, because you are always guaranteed to win something, and new slot Age of Discovery is usually pretty good too.

On Crypto Lucky Lady is the best picker - if your bankroll lasts long enough to get the feature (Stupid slot where you need scatters on reels 1,2 & 3 :mad: ), or Fat Cat & Mr.Rich where you always get 8 prizes! :thumbsup:

I also like WagerWorks 'picker' 50,000 Pyramid where you can win up to 40 spins at up to x10 :cool:

Yeah I got 27 at 6x earlier today, but for a paltry 40x bet. But I agree its one of the better "pick-em"'s because you're earning free spins. Does that count as a "pick-em" tho? Hmmm...no, probably not.

I love the what on earth bonus, love it, just love it I do!
and then I get *15 :(
Anyone hit the jackpot feature on this?
Also the starscape and dynomite features are great fun and for some reason I always seem to hit the best prize with the multiplier!

No question, it is the "free-spin" feature. Very exiting, esspecially with double wins (or more).

Bye,

I like the slots with the free spins with the multipliers. Also, I really enjoy it when one or more of the free spins actually hits something! :lolup:

Eaxctly it's hard enough getting them sometimes, let alone having to get them is some order or line #, that really cheeses me out too :mad:

Free Spins

Definitely free spins, and at least 15 @ 3x. I don't like Moonshine as too many times it ends up as 5 spins at 1x, worse even than Reel Strike.
What on Earth is not too bad, but early play yielded far too many Flowerpots and I lost interest. Recent play seems somehow different, I barely see the damn flowerpot any more, and worst is the teddy bear with the baby not noticing! For a RANDOM game, this is a bit odd, and suggests it was fiddled about with recently without us being told. I think many slots have been overhauled as loads of old slots keep updating each month along with the new games What on Earth was one of these a while back.

My favourite Pick em games include, but are not limited to, (sorry - just been reading casino T & C:D ) Muchos Grande, What on Earth - and this is due to the fact that the Pick-em rounds can lead to big wins. The downside of all pick' em games is that they have an upper limit, unlike most free spin slots.
I am more keen on free spins that CAN be retriggered over those that cannot.

Of the 3-reel slots, which don't really fall into either category, there is Bullseye, as the wheel bonus tends to give higher prizes on average that the original Wheel of Wealth slots. Also Chiefs Fortune, which is a type of free spin slot, where you get 4 spins to clothe the chief, the more traditional the outfit, the higher the prize. It usually pays better than Diamond Deal and the Wheel of wealth slots, but is still limited to 600 credits, or 200x bet - outclassed by What on Earth's 400x bet for the Chinaman posted earlier. I have had the Surfer for 200x, and the full 9000 points in the beam - up contest, and thought this was the upper limit!

Nice one King, it is funny because I always imagined it would be the chinaman so I always choose that for my destination.
Surfer?
I should be so lucky, now Teddybear me up!

sick game

I now know which bonus round I definately DONT like.
Lady of the Orient
800+spins to hit bonus
27 coins a spin.
bonus round 1=54 coins
bonus round 2=54 coins
bonus round 3=54 coins

That is just sick and I would'nt mind so much if I had hit the free spins more than twice both returning around no more than *10 my original bet.

I continued to play thinking that the bonus or free spin must give me a decent hit next time.
I hit the bonus twice more hitting 54 coins 4 times from 6 and the other amounts were 135 coins.Pathetic
free spins returned *25 wow!

I then went on inca and hit 4 wilds :mad: but at least it was decent win and the bonus round is ok too.

How has everyone else found that B*%? of the Orient?

Outta this world (RTG) is quite nice game... where this Alien-symbol stretches and expands to cover all positions of the reel... plus Black Hole scatters on 2 & 4 reels = Bonus Round

...Recently quite tight game

I feel like RTG upgraded all their slots... no more BIG wins... so often:(

Good poll Simmo! I'm definitely hooked on slots that have free spin bonus rounds, EXCEPT the ones like Harvey's, Secret Admirer, and Good to Go. Having to get scatters on specific lines is wearisome. Besides Thunderstruck, Ladies Night, etc. , the almost perfect slot is Mad Hatter. Great graphics and bonus round. My only complaint is that the bonus cannot be retriggered. That's a huge let-down for me. Moolah is fast becoming another favorite for me.

By the way............. I miss my Microgaming, so I gave in and reopened my account with Intertops. The only MG allowed for New Yorkers. When I saw that they were approved by Casinomeister , then I wasn't too worried about them. They've been very prompt at answering emails etc.

I agree.. I picked free spins because I love hitting those (especially games like ISIS, Loaded, and Santa Paws)

Free spins at Treasure Hunter is good to me also.

RTG - not so much, except for the Penguin Power (when you can get it)
