We have Wonder Woman Gold and Wild at our local. They're alright. What red-blooded male wouldn't want to spend time with a young Lynda Carter? Always liked that spin she did on the show.

Oh goody, another new game where you can't even get slightly ahead on, nevermind cash out! :mad:

And at 1.25 a pop too.....with those stakes I'd expect some anticipation of hitting something big, not a low-variance nostalgia trip!

Loved that 'buy a feature' option. It'd be innovative if it wasn't so outright blatant,greedy and pointless. Now that's something I'd love to see on DOA, mind

Exactly, it makes 'Netent Variance' seem almost funny. If you buy the crappy feature the pays are so low you seldom profit from the purchase. This type of idea comes from the Bastardcrests which are now owned by SG like Bally and WMS. If we are going to start seeing this shitola incorporated into WMS and Bally then all hope is lost. :(:(

You'd have to be a complete lunatic, who has a massive disdain for money to even contemplate those "Big Bets".

Bally & co must be pissing themselves laughing at those idiots.

And this slot tightness is widespread these days. It's almost as if they have been pushing the boundaries to see what they can get away with.

Something serious has to be done. I'm even at the point where it's not even enjoyable anymore as I can anticipate what the session is going to be like.

My hobby is nearly at it's end I feel.

About the "Buy A Bonus" feature...Bally released two games for casinos called Acorn Pixie and Butterfly Fairy that feature this. You can pay $20 for 6 games, 8 for $40 or 12 for $100. There are videos aplenty on YouTube of rich gamblers burning money on this feature for your viewing pleasure.

We have both slots at my Quebec local but I wouldn't waste my money on it. Most people didn't make much profit, if any.

Classics destroyed by HTML5 "makeovers".

New medium variance slots sucking like high variance games.

Line pays getting lower and lower.

Ridiculously low variance garbage churning out every month.

Autospin removed from WMS.

RTPs heading south to 95℅ and below.

It's almost like they had to try hard in the good old days to suck gamblers in from brick and mortar Casinos, now they've got the audience, so just shaft them again and again.

.....who'd have thought the best days of online slotting were behind us already?

Worst part being that there'll always be a conveyor belt of new slot devotees that will lap this up and start viewing it as the 'norm'.

More reason for companies not to give a hoot about their existing, loyal userbase.

Also the new wave of low / medium- variance slots masquerading as high-variance games, but accompanied by awful paytables.

RTP disclosure is also becoming yesterday's news, why bother publishing data on how bad your games perform when people will play them regardless?

I'm hoping the industry is in a slump but I think it's evolving into other media, and veering away from the actual gambling aspect!

I like the concept of buy a feature and would like to see more of it.

But this particular implementation I didn't really enjoy. It pays are so small that I can't see how it's possible to get back anything more than 2 or 3 times your stake.

Just tried this.
5oak queens and kings pay a whole 10p on 25p bet.
I got a bonus round and chose 8 spins with more gold symbols.
17x bet.
Im glad now it rolled in and didnt choose buy a bonus, because I would have tried it if I didnt get it.
My highest base game win was 4.5 ish x bet, and I had quite a few of the same symbol.

It seems pretty low variance game so I wouldn't call it bad just because of that. I actually had a crack on this at VS few hours ago and I was amazed as how to easily the bonus can be triggered, when usually with Bally games I literally NEVER get the freaking bonus. Within just ~80 spins, I triggered the bonus five times. Best result was only 40x bet though, so definitely low variance. I only tried the 8 and 16 spin options but I think it's safe to say the 8 spins option is garbage. Usually less spins means more wins but I literally couldn't tell any difference whether A's were turned into golden symbols or not, and the 16 spin feature always paid more than the 8 one .. though of course this is based only on the five times I got it.

Probably won't play again as there's just no potential to win anything but again, I wouldn't call this game trash just because it's low variance. The Buy a Bonus option is useless though .. if 40x is the most you'll hit, and it costs 40x bet to buy a bonus, why even bother?
