Picking the Wrong One on the Bonus Round!

2 replies • Last post

Hiya CL Members,

We all love the bonus round. It is what we hope and pray for when playing slots. There is just one thing i am not too sure about. When it is a bonus round where a player has to choose a certain box, icon etc....does it really matter what the player picks. I think that it is predetermined and does not really matter what one you pick.

For example when i play Club World slots. When it gets to the bonus round there is three sets of options. Each set i have to pick one of three. Many many times i have picked in each set the lowest possible bonus there on all three sets! Not just once or twice but multiple times.

I thought about it and began to think what is the odds of picking the lowest bonus in each section of a three part bonus over and over. Funny thing is i never pick over and over the best choice.

How many believe the bonus is predetermined no matter how hard we try to pick the 'right' choice?

You are right, it is all window-dressing. The results of the "pick'em" style bonus rounds are predetermined.

The type that are not predetermined are the skill-based ones like the Rival game where you play mini-golf.

Some people are disappointed by this but if you think about it, it doesn't really matter either way. If the picks weren't predetermined then the games would be weighting the odds against you anyway so that you picked the lesser value ones more often.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing.
