It was a really good game by Thunderkick and was replaced with the really bad one named Sunset Delights.

Had some brilliant wins on that one, was there something wrong with it?

Wasn't it called Sunny Scoops and isn't it pretty much the same game? :p

Yes, that's what was wrong with it. :D

Wasn't Sunny Scoops the much better game? So Thunderkick took it and nerfed it into the ground, resulting in Sunset Delight. And whilst it may look delicious and the same game they're banking on players not really noticing the difference.

Kiss Sunny Scoops goodbye, it's gone to the slots version of Rainbow Bridge

...whist we're on the subject, what happened to slots which provided fair play time and actually paid out :confused: :p

This! It's so bad the last week anyway, no playtime at all. I don't know how people do small deposits, I do $200 and it's gone in an hour mostly now. Remember when like $100 use to last hours if not a whole weekend sometimes. Now $200 does not do it, minimum 300 to now like $500 you got to deposit now to get any playtime. The last 2 screenies the other day I posted obv helped but that was like in 6 sessions to get only those 2 hits.

Any suggestions on what to play? lol

wow Geoff, $200 in one go, that's like 10 x deposit for me lol :oops:

My tactics are by no means successful very often these days (they used to work VERY well) but I shall share them anyway.

Firstly never deposit just to play one game, nor chase the same game for a bonus / feature, changing game often (100 spins max maybe?)

Next, never go for glory if you after play time rather than large cash outs, highest I'd go with a £200 balance is 0.60 and that would be pushing it, big hits can still come on this bet size if your luck is in.

Finally, (for now anyway :p - Avoid too much HV stuff, spread games volatility - I noticed you play Reactoonz, Immortal, Bonanza, DHV! - This combination 8/10 will be DEADLY, sure on a rare and extreme day they will get you rich quickly but no way would I risk these and other HV slots in the same session often.

Mix the variance, mix the stakes, (mostly low), change game often, don't chase features or losses on same game, Unsure if you can play them in Canada but Novomatics are deadly too, hit and run games only.

Maybe try some of the older MGS slots and older Netent titles now you can re-access them, best of luck matey :thumbsup:

Replace DHV with Captain Venture and that's my slotting portfolio session. As you said, it's a suicidal combo for the bulk of your plays. Normally bust out, even with a 300 deposit in an hour or 2. When it pays, it pays but lets face it it's just recycling back your money that you've already spent.

Good thing is that they tend to deflate you that much with the initial deposits that you have no desire to chase with another one

I mean they must have tested the slot and such, so it can't have had any higher RTP than tested, so I am just wondering why it got pulled. It was quite popular too.. Unless it was something seriously wrong about it.

I'm not convinced slots are tested as thoroughly as is made out. Just look at Bonanza and its stealth updates

Chances are they discovered it was paying out more than they'd anticipated, and yanked it quicker than you can say "99"

Yeah Thunderkick weren't thinking when they let the ice cream sit in the sun - It caused quite a bit of trouble for them so they decided to launch it at sunset - there was less chance their profits could melt away.
