Two utterly awful slots, although the Bastardcrest has a decent bonus game. WMS one is far, far worse than even a Netent new release - think you've seen a piss-poor game mechanic? Then try this!

Enjoyed the review Dunover, its great to a have somebody take their time to put these games through their paces. You've saved me a few £ on that kronos game as I'm a bit of a sucker for the colossal type 100 line games, but the paytable they've gone with here is woeful. They must be having a laugh to call it 'unleashed'.

I can't see anywhere else on youtube proper in-depth reviews like yours of slot games, its a really good resource for players :thumbsup:
would it possible to have an additional playlist on your youtube channel for the slot reviews?

Great review , makes you wonder what sort of management meeting they have after producing something like Kronos , all the backslapping and high fives and self congratulation ..

Whereas in the real world they should be suspended on no pay.

It is sad to think though that there must be people out there that like the low paytables.

Absolute crap from WMS again.
They are killing the industry man.
Once one of my favorite game providers but the last couple of releases are beyond shit.

And what is up with these so called optimized for mobile versions of their games. They look like a tiny pixel on my PC, unplayable really.
Also I found that these newer versions of games like Montezuma and Raging Rhino are rubbish.
RR plays absolutely horrendous so I keep looking for casinos who still offer the old original version.

I've only been playing slots for about 2 years, but I think in the rhino and montezuma heyday, a new WMS release would have players excited a bit like BTG today. However since the SG takeover with the SG logo on WMS games, the releases seem to be all low variance with no potential, playing them you are in effect risking your stake just to get your stake back. With SG's resources behind them you'd think WMS would have released some corking new games by now.

I wouldn't be surprised if SG bought out BTG at some point, to continue their process of buying up competitors, and then every new BTG release will be like their worst game temple quest with its extremely low payouts.

Now have had a go on the himalayas game at coral, feels like a very lacklustre attempt at a new slot by sg/barcrest, it looks as though they have ported the hercules high and mighty game, the way reels move etc, but they have added this random wild feature instead of the hercules expansion. I got two scatters a lot, probably 10 times before getting the bonus which paid £2.91 at 10p stake.

But just in terms of graphics and animations when you compare it the games BTG put out its light years behind, when will SG pull their finger out and make a good game?

Gave Himalayas a second go last night as I was £15 down from playing lazer fruit at minimum stake [that game does not keep your balance ticking over like bonanza, biggest base game win last night 10x can't see it ever match my best bonanza base win of 925x].

So out of desperation I did another £10 deposit and put on Himalayas at 20p stake, down to £4 when the bonus landed which paid £20, so that wasn't too bad 100x.
