    Just got a free bet from Paddy Power, for my Tuesday's misery ;) I played some Exclusives, but came across one soul destroying slot.
    Gave me an idea for a thread, what about posting slots that are just badly designed, with poor paytables or just plain rubbish.
    Here are my few, will update if I'm unfortunate enough to find others...

    Plants vs. Zombies
    I had one three reel Gargantuar feature, which is like Wild Desire that paid almost 200x. But any other time, half of the spins is dead,
    and the max win I had in 1000+ base game spins was less than 5x. The Gargantuar and Zombies feature kept me afloat, but when 5 wilds
    pay 1000x bet and it has a wild reels feature, I suppose there will be many sad faces for one huge winner :rolleyes:

    Playtech's Hulk
    I am not sure how many spins I've made over the years, must be thousands. I always come back for a few spins when I feel like playing Playtech,
    but it's the same story every time. You either hit the 3 expanding Hulks or bust. And needles to say, I never hit them.

    Battlestar Galactica - MGS
    I played it the other day and on my second spin, boom. 4 wilds, one of them double, multiple 5OAK. The Microgaming big win bell started ringing,
    and then the win count stopped. For a second I thought my browser froze, but no. Went to paytable and left the game, never coming back.
    Highest symbol slightly over 13x bet and the regular Jacks or Aces pay cents :eek2:

    Lady Robin Hood - Bally
    Again, incredibly low pays, even wilds pay peanuts. I don't need some insane variance, but a slot should have at least a reasonable potential.
    I know there must be players who enjoy the almost zero variance, but I don't really see the point in slowly grinding balance to zero, hoping to get
    half a screen of wilds for 50x bet.

    The NEWER version of Cleopatra (the one where you start your free spins with the button as opposed to the original where they started on their own plus it gives a silly 'big win' at 10x stake plus) because the newer version plays very differently to the original IMO and maybe others agree?
    Bally I agree and check their RTP's especially if a jackpot added. They are quite low 90's usually.

    I tend to avoid games with RTP < 96%.

    The TOP 5 worst paying slots that I know:

    • Monopoly on a roll (IGT) - RTP 76,07%
    • Cluedo (IGT) - RTP 85,45%
    • Deal or No Deal - Instant Win (Endemol Games) - RTP 86,73%
    • King Kong (Cryptologic) - RTP 91,39%
    • Wheel of Fortune Hollywood Edition (IGT) - RTP 92,01%

    I have a list as long as your arm, where do I start -

    My biggy is ALL the exclusives on PP. They are a killer and I pretty much stay clear now all together.
    If the are in a good mood all well and good but for me anyway the good moods those games have only ever happens once maybe twice ever - when i've had my 10 seconds of joy - I know that's my lot no matter how many times I return. (I know I know Random an all that) :p

    Netent and Microgaming have to have a think. Hard choice to narow down, I am a jinx to myself I'm sure. :Read:

    The original Cleopatra (where the 'reels' spun properly too lol) was my very first experience of online gaming :) LOVED that game and won loads on it too, then I discovered a load of bad ones :(

    I'd avoid ANY Playtech game (sorry Playtech but never had a win on them EVER in the past)

    Also: -
    Tigers Eye - Deadly when 'cold'

    Games to proceed with caution (not 'what they used to be'...)

    Untamed Series - 'Killed them' when they were new, seem awful lately

    BattleStar Galactica - Same reasons as above - 1000's of spins and never saw 'Super Big Win' never mind 'mega'

    This is probably all just personal experience but I've defo noticed changes / trends in the zillions of spins done in the past

    Cheers!

    The Untamed series are by a distance the worst slots I've ever played.

    In terms of the deadness of their dead streaks they are unrivalled. Most slots even if they're running dead throw some desultory rubbish (1x -5x) back at you every now and then.
    The Untamed series just chomp you up unrelentingly, with the entertainment value of having your leg eaten by a real untamed belangali friggin tiger..

    Since I`ve seen impressive screen shots on this forum I started to believe again that slot can actually pay.
    I dumped a few hundred $ at it with max. 1 or 2 free games and I saw Wild Desire once in my life, just recently hit one on 32Red for $5 on $1.8 bet.

    Break Away
    Yeah right, never again

    The Dark Knight
    I spent countless hours trying to hit something decent and I`ve ever seen a jackpot feature.

    The list could go on and on. :)

    As much as I agree Immortal can be shockingly bad at times when you get the other side of the coin and it goes on flurrys of streaks it is worth it ;) :thumbsup: What character are you picking on the feature? I'd recommend Sarah or Troy(Ambers high variance option so rarely good and Rolling reels also once in a lifetime you'll benefit from the multipliers)

    Haha, I wish I could give a go to Sarah or Troy...I am still at Amber level and she is being an illusive biatch herself.... ;)

    Have you had any decent luck on IM?

    Mixed luck man, Never a bigger wild desire than 80x but I'll still keep trying! As for luck on free spins yes and these were funnily enough on amber because everyone raved on about how good a choice she was but the other day got the feature 6 times and every time picked her and the best it could spit out was 13.50! Wish I had known how good Sarah and Troy are before that session I discovered from looking at forums and watching win videos and also from a bit of experimentation testing out the features and I can safely say Sarah and Troy are easily the best to choose both gave me over 200x bet a few times. This pic is prob the best I have had on Immortal but as with you didn't have other people to pick from.

    This pic was from april and at 30p bet(this rarely happens so don't chase it)

    It can be but the free spins are like DOA with the sticky wilds our very own Blathaon has hit all 5 wilds 2 ways with assorted other symbols on it for mega big wins! Probably took a very long time but so do all games of this nature.

    Wowww, nice hit on 30p Dave!
    I think I put IM on ice for the time being and keep pushing on Thunderstruck 2 and Jurassic Park. Lately they are quite friendly to me. :)

    As long as you're name isn't Rolastan, Blathaon, Nate or Tirilej, avoid DOA like the plague.

    Starbust and that fisticuff slot are also terrible, unless 30x bet is your goal.
