I've largely given up on BOD after the VS freeroll marathon. Not because I'm tired of the game, I really do enjoy it.
But out of all those thousands and thousands of spins by hundreds of players, only two achieved top pay. Made me realize just how futile it is to play the game hoping for that win. But it does of course factor into the RTP.
Best of luck to those bashing away at it.
I think its due to the feature paying out such a high average.
Playing 80 cents I rarely get less then 30€ from a feature, even without any expanding symbols appearing, and very rarely it goes below 10x, in fact out of 250 features I only once had I pay of 5x.
Thats pretty awesome in comparison to other games with 5000x possibilities. I also hadn´t had too much trouble hitting 1000x multiple times, which rarely ever happens in any other games I play.
