You could only ever really play the rival slots though with a big bonus match, they can be brutal with paying nothing for hundreds of spins.

Well, I'm halfway through a rival casino bonus where I have to have double the bonus to end before I can withdraw.
Had a few decent wins and got the balance up to £850 from starting £505 bonus plus deposit.

Just playing out the wagering requirements now on cosmic quest mystery planets which is 98 rtp however I need to get to £1000 at the end to be able to withdraw.

Where's that at hinchy?

I'm over £20K through at Tropica now, still £60K to go though, balance holding up at just under £2K.

Was holding at £2300-£2400 for a while but Scary Rich 2 just went mental and sucked down nearly £700 at £1 per spin without hitting 100x or better once.

Jacques Pot Gourmet Slot has given me a reasonable rally at £2 per spin. The burger round bonus when you can trigger it, is generally a safe 100x stake or better.

£2 per spin here.

Its at go fish casino, funnily enough I've just be on Jacques pot Gourmet myself, took a bit of a hit though, recovered it on Baby Boomers cash cruise, I do like that slot. 177% match 14x D+B playthrough. There is also a Free £377 chip which you have 60 mins to play, then any winnings above the £377 are taken through to the second stage, pretty good fun for little outlay, suffice to say I didnt meet the WR on the second stage,

Turn right, then right. then right again
Chops....I can think of much better ways to spend $110 and countless hours.

It's really not a good bonus. If the max cashout was even 1xbonus I might consider it briefly, but if I'm going to spend that much time I want the possibility of a large reward.

Hmmmm may check the place out myself, the Rival client is so small on my screen that I could easily have two of them on the go at the right hand side of my screen.

Incidentally, if you want a good wagering slot with a high RTP, just whack Gold Rush on, that's a low variance single line slot with an 'about 98' payout. (The jackpot is 135x stake IIRC, which is very small for any slot, let alone a single-liner. You will actually see it come in if you put any substantial number of spins through it.)

It wagered about £8K for me last night over on the media centre PC whilst I was playing Borderlands 2, and my balance went up £200 :D

My way of looking at is the bonus 'buys' me a couple of evening's slotting at least, probably more like three or four evenings.

It's almost like playing with free money, except with the possibility of cashing out at the end it. Plus I take them on more as a sort of challenge than any kind of hard-headed attempt to make money.

It's not like I have to sit there and interact with the slots for hours on end either, with the new 'Share The Excitement' feature I can just kick them off and go and do something else, safe in the knowledge that it'll stop if a 100x stake win or better comes in.

Last night I was playing Borderlands 2 whilst Gold Rush just played itself over on the media centre PC :D

So what's borderlands like?

I'm a diehard command and conquer/settlers/age of empires fan. Would it appeal to me do you think?

Depends if you like FPS + RPG mashups with a focus on slaughtering enemies, killing bosses, gathering loot and completing quests!

Would you be playing on the PC? You need a half-decent system to kick it around nicely, and the PhysX effects are awesome, but need some horsepower behind them.

I would give 'A switch int time' a go. Had five scatters once, 78 free spins @ x9 with x27 if a wild appears on reel 1. It's a high variance slot with some massive wins on it, good @1.20 a spin

The Back Nine? The Rubbish Crapturd, more like.

Well I am getting absolutely bastard walloped by The Back Nine.

I knew full well they'd messed with this slot as the help file changed from 'about 99' to 'about 95' months ago, and the play I've had on it since then has confirmed it's a far poorer slot than it once was.

However, this evening I decided to get stuck into it properly, with a balance of £2000, playing at £3 per spin.

I don't know why particularly, I just have a stupid gooey soft spot for the true skill bonus round, call it nostalgia for when I beat the 1777% bonus with Spy Game and The Back Nine :)

GOOD GOD THIS SLOT IS AWFUL NOW.

It's already scythed through £1000 of my bankroll and it's all one-way traffic downhill.

The bonus round doesn't come in anything like as readily as it used to, it's routinely going 200-400 spins without triggering it, which was absolutely unheard of in its old incarnation. (As I type this it's gone over 500 spins without a bonus round, and I've had several 300+ dead patches this evening as well. Just didn't happen when it was 'about 99'.)

Add onto that they've messed with the expanding wilds, it's incredibly mean with getting 2-3-4 expanded wild, which it used to do quite happily, and it hates threading 5OAK through as well.

As a low variance slot (320x stake is about the best win it's capable of with the best symbols on 1-5 and full expanded wilds on 2-3-4), this slot absolutely relied on its high RTP, decent routine reel wins, and regular bonus rounds (a hole in two only pays 30x stake on a basic three scatters trigger, which accounts for around 95% of the bonus round triggers and is generally how many shots it will take you to get the ball down). Now it's completely ruined :(

Ducking under £900 now, pushing up towards 600 spins for a bonus round that's most likely only going to pay 30x stake when I get there.

May as well just bust out on this slot now, but I fear it's going to leave a sour taste in the mouth.

WHY COULDN'T YOU HAVE JUST LEFT THE BLOODY THING ALONE RIVAL?

Latest - over 600 spins, no bonus round, balance under £800. Oh The Back Nine, what have they done to you?

EDIT - Over 700 spins, no bonus round, balance under £700. I'm aghast.

EDIT AGAIN - Came in at 720 spins. Three scatters trigger, hole in two, 30x stake.

Not to derail, but have you tried Dota2 Chops? I've got a spare invite if you're so inclined.

Since getting into the beta last November, I've spent countless (over 1500) hours on it.

Played out the full nine holes on The Back Nine and binned it off, never playing that bloody thing again.

Over to Scary Rich 2 and it's chucked a couple of decent wins in to keep me in the game.

Still only around £28,500 wagered though.

484x stake at £1 per spin.

This round finished at 616x stake, dropped in just a few minutes after the previous round.

Not even heard of it TBH, apart from WoW, I've never really got involved with any sort of MMO capers.

Haven't really got the time any more either, which is why I've gravitated back towards single player campaign games like Borderlands 2.

I don't know how Tropica does, but also remember that the games we play the most, like the I-slots and the high variance-games as Scary Rich 1 and 2, are often on max bets of $1 or $2.
To have a big bankroll and not being able to make high bets will be boring, and reduce your chances of high winnings.

I would never ever take that kind of bonus.
If I like to try as many games as possible, I would take a resonable bonus, with no max cashout, and then play them on low bets instead.
You could still win a lot, and then maybe later raze your betsize.

Good luck whatever you do:)

I don't see any max bet requirements in the bonus terms, but 0.5 times the bonus as the max amount permitted to cashout in the (unlikely) event that you meet the WR is a no go for me. If it were 5x the bonus, I would consider it...;)

If you want to meet the WR I would give 'As the reels turn 2' a go, bit of a dull slot but has 3 bonus rounds and can pay big during free spins.

Well if you hadn't kept posting all over the forum about how great that 99% slot was for beating WR - maybe they wouldn't have noticed and would have left it alone!
(Someone had to say it :p)

FWIW I think it's unlikely they have actually changed the slot (just updated the "rules" page which we know are notorious for being inaccurate), it's more likely just the variance kicking in and giving you a really bad run :(
Who knows? (Only Rival - and they're not about to make a public statement about anything!)

Yes that was a bit stupid, with the benefit of hindsight I should have kept my cakehole shut.

TBH it just didn't occur to me that in this day and age any casino would have a 99% RTP slot with a true skill bonus round contributing 100% to a WR, and given the shonkiness of Rival's rules and help files in general, I just assumed it was an error, which is why I kept pushing the point.

D'oh!

It's definitely changed KK, I was already pretty certain of it before last night, and after the extended session I had on it yesterday, no doubt about it.

Remember I did wager the best part of £120,000 on it at £6 per spin to beat the 1777% bonus, so I'm pretty familiar with it :)

Scary Rich 1/2 are restricted to £2 per spin, but all the other high variance slots seem to be the usual limits, or as close as to not make any difference.

There are other highish variance slots on Rival's books so it's not like it's Scary Rich 1/2 or nothing to try and get a high variance raise!

Anyway, as I said, it's a playtime thing as much as anything, I'm now into day three on what is effectively a £110 deposit :)

I was quite sure my lucky run was coming to an end at Jackpot Party so I could have easily lost a lot more than that there since Friday night!

Scary Rich has another go with 431x stake.

If I'd have had the wild on 3 as well as 1-2, this would have been a monster, as I had JP symbols on 4 and 5.

It's all over!

Bust out at just over £39,000 wagered.

Would have done a lot better I think if not for the abomination that The Back Nine has become, but either way it was always a very big ask.

Scary Rich demolished the £1500 balance you see in the last screenshot at £1 per spin and only hit the 100x stop trigger a couple of times - scary indeed!

Well, Ive just finished my bonus promotion at a Rival casino, £200 deposit, matched 177% giving a bankroll of around £500.
Playthrough was a fairly well beatable 14.44 however I needed to have double the bonus plus deposit amount to withdraw, managed to finish at £1064 so nice profit.

It was the instruction from chops to move to Gold rush which was the decisive move here, I was hovering around 600-700 for ages then moved to gold rush and had a few good wins to bring me above the needed amount, which then proceeded to just tick away to meet the WR.

My commission is a modest 10%.
