"Wicked Wednesdays"

May need some tweaking but something along the lines of....

€1 buy in with the option to re-buy 4 times (total €5 euro)

Prizes are where the work and cost assessment would lie

Top 'X' (100?) places cash prizes as with the Tuesday madness, or maybe XP wheels (gold/bronze/silver), maybe even direct entry to round 4/5 of rounders? the next places could be where the variety really starts

places 100 - 200 Red WoJ even 2-3 -4-5 Red wheels depending on placings
places 200+ Free spins starting from 50 and working down OR a set of green and blue WoJ, higher you place more wheels, last few places one wheel or 10-20 FS

Idea works well in my head but I'm no expert, feel that the buy in cost, along with the RTP (as most prizes will be FS based) would not cause a huge outlay to the casino, plus you'll have some players making extra deposits at the same time as claiming their prizes or even checking to see if the won also :)

If its rubbish idea, don't hold back just give it to me straight :p :p

Personally i like the idea of the rebuy comp you are adding but agree one winner takes all is not attractive enough for me. A split between top 10 or 50 or so would be more encouraging.

I also agree that any of your customers who have been with you a while will be seeing these changes as cutbacks. It doesnt seem like you are giving any extra to balance what you are taking away through the reduction of RTP on rewards.

Thanks for taking on the feedback however and good to see you are trying new things.

Hi bamberfishcake,

This is not a change, we are not replacing anything with the "Saturday Madness: It can only be one", its an additional competition. The RTP in all our Madness competition are well over 100%, but yes the Saturday one is volatile.

Last Tuesday Madness had an RTP of about 700%.

Best regards,

Team Videoslots

We have two daily competitions each day where winner takes all, these have been very popular among some players, that is why we are testing this concept.

We are trying to create unique competitions each day of the week to have something for all different tastes.

We are also planing to add something for Wednesdays as well. Suggestions are welcome!

Best regards,

Team Videoslots


Well as most people are fans of the Tuesday battle format, with the 600 paid places etc, I would do one exactly the same but without any added money from yourselves but could make it 2 or 5 Euro instead of one.

Or 1,2 or 5 Euro with 4 rebuy as already suggested would be popular.

Bottom line is as long as you pay a lot of places ( like Tuesday 600 etc ) any size battle buy in will be very popular.

IMO players are put off battles that pay 1 or too few paid places. Your winner takes all ones may be very popular but would they be even more popular if you had the same battles with way more paid places :)

I think a less volatile slot would be a bit more encouraging and produce a much closer finish than DOA2.

Nice way to start your Saturday though eh...

katpir will be sweating that 1st place all day long though! :p Just takes one berserk bonus on DOA2 and it's 'goodnight sweet prince!' I wouldn't bet against that score being beaten before the day is out. If you're down to your last tenner why wouldn't you have a crack at that?

But yeah, I think more places are needed as a bit of a safety-net, and they don't have to be very big. Just to ensure maximum participation. Even €20 down to 20th place would be like a commiseration prize. Using a volatile game works well because you know you've got a chance right until the last spin. If it was Starburst and the first couple of buys were bad, you'd just give up and not spend the full €11.

For the Wednesday one - what would be interesting is a freezeout €1 battle where you can re-enter as many times as you like (not re-buy), and get your name on the table multiple times.

As it stands I probably won't go in for the Saturday battle now. Or will I? NNNGGHGHGHNNN-Oh go on then!

This new concept really need changes. Like you see it's already "ended". It's stupid to even entry this battle anymore and here is 14 hours left. Number one spot has so sick score that no one beats it anymore I guess. There should be more prizes than just "it can only be one". Nr. 2 spot is over 70000 -> thanks and bye you won zero euros.

There should be more prizes. Let's say top 20 get something back. It's just ridiculous when there is 600-1000 players and you use 11 euros when your changes to win are like 0. xx %

Inside the last hour. The sweat is torture at this point.

I fired a few bullets at this out of boredom and got nowhere. I happened to look at some of the remarks in the comment section. My god some people are delusional. People reporting VS to Gambling Commission because they didn't win so now it must be fixed. Lol.

Like this battle format is bullshit. Here you 35 min to go. I would say 700 people buy in 1 time if you look at bottom scores either they thought it was like Tuesday battle. Either way top spot 20000 clear of second, crazy one winner 10000euro. I would never play that especially doa. 92,000 . What a ripoff worst idea ever. Team videoslots said winner take all ya 1$ buy in win 50$. Big difference between that and 10k.

My thoughts given the above...Two £2,500 added tournaments on wednesday and Saturday, £1 buy in 4 rebuys. Will attract the numbers for same cost. Top 100 paid.

Can you imagine the crap the UKGC have to deal with? Their biggest job must be sorting the wheat from the chaff every day when it comes to complaints.

Did Katpir win? I went to bed exhausted from the excitement.

I like that idea. I also like the idea of the 10 rebuys though. Throws a little strategy in to the mix. I was near the top once and had a few rebuys left. I waited until most had finished and then surprised them all at the end with my saved up rebuys to steal a placed victory mwahahahahaha. That was a good day to be alive and one i will always treasure.

Tourneys need a lot more than top 100 places, much like the Tuesday madness structure.

With 2,000+ entrants, paying top 100 will have 5% happy and 95% pissed off, from a business perspective, I'd want to turn those figures on their head as much as realistically possible.

Pleasing a low roller and maintaining their custom is easily done, few "free" wins here and there, handful of free spins now and then is all it takes. I would also have thought that activity wise (not turnover) that said low rollers make up 80%+ of casinos customers.

All of this can be achieved with virtually no cost to the casinos via carefully structured battles with re-buys. Many depositing players with forfeit a small portion of that days deposit if there is a semi reasonable chance of securing a prize to enjoy come the end of the battle/ the following day ;)

Its a compromise... better than top one. They should have kept freespins prizes all round, no rounders which again satisfies 1% or cash down to 200 place which pay 40p most the time. At least with spins you feel you have something, may hit a bonus and pay more than a few pence.

I am waiting to see if the 6pm battles are not on which paid 75 places at 110 meaning its a reduction overall on this weekend.
