On January the 7th, 2019, CasumoLouis – a rep for the popular casino, Casumo, created a forum thread titled ‘Top Wins in November 2018’. This thread proved to be incredibly insightful, and Casumo decided to share with the Casinomeister community what the top 9 games were, in terms of monetary value, along with the most popular games, which produced the most wins of 2,000X stake or higher.
In this post, we’re going to be looking at the games which produced wins of 2,000X or higher – and we’re going to work from the top down, so we’ll begin with a name many of you will probably be familiar with.
Book of Dead – 88 wins
Unsurprisingly, we see Play ‘n Go’s Book of Dead making the top of the list, and this hugely popular slot was reported to have delivered the maximum single spin win (a full screen of the Rich Wilde symbol) a whopping 24 times during November. This equates to a payout equalling 5,000X stake!
Dead or Alive – 65 wins
One of NetEnt’s most successful releases in history, Dead or Alive produced no less than 65 wins all of which totaled 2,000X or higher. This will have been made up from a combination of 5 scatter triggers (which pays a whopping 2,500X stake), and wildlines within the bonus round. It’s unclear exactly how many of each were landed, but it should come as no surprise to see Dead or Alive listed here, as it’s still – to this day – one of the most frequently played slots in the world.
Jammin’ Jars – 17 wins
Despite a significant amount of controversy surrounding its game mechanics (when it was found that two streamers on YouTube achieved identical wins), Jammin’ Jars has proved to be a particularly popular slot release for Push Gaming, with its insane win-potential luring many players into having a go. Casumo reported that 17 wins during November totaled over 2,000X on the slot – and the biggest win was a whopping €11,544,63 from a player playing at just €0.60 a spin – equating to a staggering 19,241X their bet!
Vikings – 14 wins
The latest release from Netent, Vikings is the second game from the game developer to make this list, and it’s all about the bonus round, where players can land a huge amount of scatter symbols (which proceed to pay, regardless of their position) by landing them within one of the middle three boxes. The game’s pretty volatile – likely to coincide with the growing trend of high-volatile slots that are becoming far more popular – but the win-potential speaks for itself, and 14 wins in November equated to 2,000X or higher!
Genie Jackpots Megaways – 8 wins
The first (and last) slot on this list from Blueprint Gaming, Genie Jackpots Megaways has proved to be a massively successful release, and the game boasts an impressive number of features, which can be triggered randomly during the base-game (when the genie comes out of his lamp), as well as by triggering the actual feature, which is done by landing three or more of the bonus scatter symbols anywhere in view. After landing the main bonus, players can be awarded Locking Wild free-spins, Mystery Wishes free-spins, Unlimited Multiplier free-spins, or Genie Streak free-spins. Genie Jackpots Megaways produced 8 wins totally 2,000X stake or above in November at Casumo – placing it fifth on the list.
Fat Rabbit – 7 wins
Fat Rabbit is the second Push Gaming slot to make this list, and it’s another hugely successful release for the game developer. Coming out last year, Fat Rabbit has a really entertaining bonus, where you need to land carrot wilds, in order for the (not-yet fat) rabbit to gobble them up. If you manage to do this – and subsequently progress to later stages of the bonus round – the rabbit grows in size. If you’re very lucky, for the last spin or two, the rabbit can grow to fill the entire screen, which awards a whopping 1,000X bet. In November at Casumo, Fat Rabbit was responsible for producing 7 wins of 2,000X stake or higher!
300 Shields – 6 wins
300 Shields is a game from NextGen Gaming, and the game has become somewhat legendary, due to its insane win-potential during the bonus round. Triggered by landing three, four, or five of the Red Shield symbols during the base-game, there are four stages to the bonus, with a multiplier active on each level. If you manage to make it to the fourth level, you’ll receive 5 free spins, with all wins (which include the wild symbol) multiplied by a whopping 300X! November at Casumo saw 6 wins equalling 2,000X or above, cementing 300 Shields as a game that can, and does pay.
Knight’s Life – 6 wins
Knight’s Life is the first slot from Merkur to make this list – and it’s a game known for its variance (but also its win-potential). For players who land three or more of the Horse Head scatter symbol anywhere in view, they be assured of an exciting and nerve-wracking bonus round, where – each spin – a new top-paying symbol becomes wild. The mega money, however, is found with a re-trigger, as this awards a further 10 free-spins, during which all wins are 3X. In November, Casumo recorded 6 2,000X wins – making Knight’s Life on equal footing with 300 Shields.
Danger High Voltage – 6 wins
Players may be rather surprised to see the first mention of Big Time Gaming as low down as ninth on this list… yet Danger High Voltage takes that spot. Unfortunately, Casumo didn’t let us know any details about where the 6 2,000X + wins came from in Danger High Voltage, and for anyone who knows the games potential, it’s fair to say these wins could have come from the base-game, or either of the free-spins features.
Book of Ra Deluxe 6 – 5 wins
We saw Play ‘n Go’s Book of Dead make the top of the list – with a whopping 88 2,000X + wins paid in December – and just making the list, in tenth place is Book of Ra Deluxe 6, from Novomatic. While it may be surprising to some players to see this classic so low down the list, it did distribute no fewer than 5 2,000X stake wins – which is nothing to sniff at, after all.
As you can see from the list above, there are plenty of games out there that are capable of paying out well – and it’s no surprise to see some of the most popular games – Book of Dead, Dead or Alive, Fat Rabbit etc – making the list quite easily.
It was incredibly good of Casumo to prepare these stats for the Casinomeister forum, and it certainly makes for interesting reading – whether any other casinos, or Casumo will, again, decide to publish anything like this remains to be seen, but it is a great way for players to see which games are capable of paying – and, more importantly, which games do pay.
One surprise that can be taken from the list, is the lack of Big Time Gaming slots to make an appearance. With Bonanza, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, White Rabbit, and Book of Gods all more than capable of paying 2,000X + wins, it’s definitely strange to see them not making an appearance (Casumo subsequently wrote in their post that not a single win over 2,000X was delivered by these games in November) – but maybe these slots just aren’t as popular with players as they are with players on the forum.
Who knows, but again, a big thank you to Casumo, and let’s hope we see more of this in the future, as it’s an invaluable insight into the pay-outs given from slots!
