So I’m playing this game at Cashino.com, since their move to the Playtech platform.

I tried demo mode to get a feel for it. Stunning.....constant large wins on 24p stake. Like, up 1000x by the 200th spin. Deposit and have a go. Balance destroyed. Ok, damn unlucky.

Go back and try demo mode again. Up 500x 100 ish spins in. Hmmm. Close game, reopen in demo mode. Again, massive fast wins.

Deposit again, try again. Nope, not a chance, on the same 24p bets.

I queried this with the casino, as I thought it was quite naughty. They simply said I had bad luck and copy pasted a large bit on RNG. So I try some more. It is impossible to lose in demo mode. Call me old fashioned, but I’d say this is indeed not RNG at play;) give me demo mode on real play and I’d be laughing.

They are UKGC licensed, always thought mis leading demo mode was a big no no.

Anyone experienced this with this game or other Playtech slots?

Don't know why players (in general) are so surprised at this. Not with exclusively Playtech per se but with all demo play.....they're promotional tools to sell the game.

One provider's already been caught out with this, and I'm sure many others will remain quiet hoping nobody notices the disparities, well, at least until they're caught :cool:

Could always be bad luck but if it is the way you suspect it is definitely not legal. Does anyone else have an account at the casino to try it out?

it 100% is not bad luck, tried it quite extensively now. Demo mode as a live slot would skint a casino in hours:D Cashino are completely uninterested however, they just say all our games are regulated and tested etc.

@Dwyer report it to the UKGC and CC the cashino support team in on your comms. They are legally obliged to provide identical games in demo mode / real play as part of their UK license. They cannot simply ignore this.

I did try to take a look myself but didn't have an account to logon to cashino.

I will move on of course, and yes the game in question is completely terrible. I just thought it was worth mentioning. It has become a bit about principle now however, as cashino maintain it is the same as live. Going 500x + up every time without fail in 100 spins, every time.....and its fine according to them=/
