well guys I am OUT and I'm out of money. Other than 4 scatters on FF this is my best hit for the month. I will be out of the competition in November as my daughter is getting married. Oh how I was hoping one of us would hit the progressive....that would have really changed things. The wedding is in Vegas November 22nd.

We still have a few more hours, right? ;)

I'm pretty much cashed out, though, also. Lots of spins... Lots of nothing :(

Hi guys

I've had a bit of a disaster today - got back to find my Bootable Hard Drive has given up the ghost so i'm on my backup PC. Means all the code and spreadsheets for the comp are inaccessible so there will be a delay in starting the November comp/compiling October stats. Dont worry - all the entries are lodged at 32Red so no-one will miss out - but I have a day or two of troubleshooting ahead of me :(

Cheers

Simmo!

Well here ends the first attempt - bit of a damp squib really. :(

The real winners in the end are 32Red - they must have taken $1,000's more via these progressives than they otherwise would have. So well done to them for having the vision to support this fun venture :thumbsup:
Shame more casino's can't be a bit more imaginative with these sort of things.

They had $254 of my hard earned profit off me - 2,000 spins of Tunzamunni cost me $75, but I only managed 1,000 spins on Fruit Fiesta before I had to quit after losing a ludicrous $179! :eek:
The best win I managed was a pathetic $30 for 4 scatters (below) - what a money eater!

I think you can count me out of the next comp - unless the number of spins required is considerably fewer. :(

Another example of just how tight FF is...
4 wild symbols on a win line - with quite a good symbol on the end, still only pays $23.60 :( :eek2: :(

Hi Everyone

OCTOBER COMP IS NOW CLOSED.

I'll get stats together and details of the November comp this week.

As this was the first one and a bit of a test one, I'd be grateful for any ideas on the November one - games, anthing...leave your ideas below. I think we're all decided that we could use slots that are a tad more exciting to give some variation eh ;) So i'll go for 3 this month. Low-rollers...which slot suits you? High rollers...same Q?

I'll start a new thread for the November comp.

Simmo,
Although it was fun while it lasted, as I said above, there is no way I can afford to be throwing away $250 of hard-earned profit on this venture every month. :(

I don't know much about the other progressives, but from a low-rollers point of view I wont be risking too much $ to be taking part in future events, so for me the slot needs to pay out considerably better than Fruit Fiesta, or the number of qualifying spins needs to be much lower (say 500?). Tunzamunni was OK-ish.

The only other progressive I have tried is King Cashalot which I like a lot - but I couldn't stretch to max coins as a bad run would murder my bankroll. :(

My FF five scatters is the best I can offer up! Got nothing out of Tunza!!

I reckon King Cashalot is a good bet for this month... Although I know those dragons will drive me mental!!!

Incidentally, how DARE microgaming do an RTG on us, and do that reel speed up thing when you hit two features on Wasabi San.. It's so annoying when the third doesn't land. Doesn't stop me playing it mind :rolleyes:

Which Games?

According to Slotcharts.com, the hottest MG progressives are Fruit Fiesta, Tunzamunni and WowPot, and they're not very hot either...but they are affordable, and are won quite often, so good choices I think.

Suggestion

Maybe you could make sure the games you choose are available via the flash casino? It limits your choices, but I know I'm not the only person who posts here that can't play on downloaded casinos.

I enjoyed this thread a lot this month. Great idea.

Love Wowpot and King Cashalot, those would be two good choices. And I know I said I can't play but since I'll be back from Vegas late in the month...who knows. I may win enough there to go crazy the last week of the month in the contest.
