Best and Worst Bonus Rounds

26 replies • Last post

One thing I hear people complaining about throughout land casinos are bonus rounds. Seems it used to be one was lucky enough to enter a bonus round and win free games, they would come out with a decent amount. That is no longer the case. I once heard of a player who won over 100 free games and came out with under three dollars. When I play Wicked Winnings i never care about bonus rounds, because I typically win 15 to 30 free games and come out with between three and six dollars.

When I first started playing at online casinos I found that the bonus rounds were more like a bonus round should be. But now I am noticing the same thing! Maybe it is just me, but I can't get a decent free spins round.

I just went into Spirit of the inca with eight free games and I came out with $1.68! yes, you are reading that correctly! Sad

Club World game was not much better on 12 free games.

Do you think online casinos have tightened up. I swear I don't hit like I did when I first signed up about four years ago.

What are your best and worst bonus rounds? Any memorable bonus rounds?

Wow, that is a nice win on THAT bonus round! I remember the game Triton's Treasures at Uptown Aces getting me $400 or so in its Free Spins round with Expanding Wilds, and Aladdin's Wishes at High Noon netting me a few hundred bucks with Free Spins and the Pick'em game in the past, but sadly these are the exception and not the norm, as I have hit a real dry spell as of late.

Saved me again! I was down to my last few dollars, so I had to change the bet to 50 cents. At first the T Rex was not showing up, but it only takes one spin. Can play a little longer Smile

You know, I have never had luck with T-Rex, but after seeing your success I may have to give it another chance...

I had never played it before, 'Slim! I tried it due to viewing a win in the perpetual winners' thread here. lol

That last round wasn't paying, and I kept telling myself, "It only takes ONE spin," and it finally hit.

I did NOT end up meeting play through at Club World, though. I did notice MANY of the majors and minors over there are up higher than I am used to seeing them, too. Smile

I really do not like bonus rounds like that. I say one should at least get one dollar per spin and that is at the VERY LEAST. So 20 free games, then AT LEAST 20 bucks. Like I said, at the land casino the Wicked Winnings is infamous for two and three dollar bonus rounds on 15 to 30 (retrigger) games. I wish they could set bonus rounds to pay better or why be excited when we hit the free spins?

Sounds like you're playing high variance games. If you're looking for a huge win they are the ones to play, but at the expense of a lot of small wins and losses.

One of the games with the best bonus rounds, and you see it often in the winning screenshots thread, is Dead or Alive from Net Entertainment. Last month there were two wins of over 2500x the bet. However I have played it many times and never gotten anywhere near that, which indicates that the variance of the bonus round at least is massive.

I don't really choose by variance, CL-Ed. I pick what looks like fun or looks interesting, and I go from there. I do like lower or medium, too, like Fruit Frenzy and others. The reason I chose T Rex was simply due to the perpetual winner's thread and that win looked like so much fun! lol I had never tried the game before.

I typically try a few spins and if it is not paying, then I move on to the next until something decides to let me play a while.

Is the Club World game high variance, too? I sometimes steer clear of those that say "very high" but when I actually look for variance then it will depend upon my balance.

But most of the time I just pick old favorites and once in a while something new to me.

I did see those Dead and Alive wins - awesome! I think the land game Wicked Winnings must be a high variance game, too come to think of it.

Yes the Club World game is because you're really hanging out for that magical 100 free spins with a big multiplier. If that doesn't come then you're probably not winning much.

That certainly makes sense. I have hit a few nice ones outside the bonus And I believe I have only hit the 100 free spins ONE time, and again, just like ALL my wins, it was when I first started playing online slots or shortly after. I think I even posted about it here, because it is so fun to hit those 100 spins. Smile

Net Entertainment games are coming to New Jersey soon, and I wonder if Dead or Alive is going to be among them. I have a list of games that I want to play when I pop back over to Jersey, and would be happy to try this and a few other Net Ent games for real money when they are available.

RTG Mice Dice offer a pretty good free spin round, as I think.

Two Wild in 1 & 2 reels in a row trigger the free spin.
More Wilds in a row give more chance of free spins up to 30 and higher multiplier up to 12.

The feature guantee is triggered with 100 spins, too.
And, 50 x bet Win - Win feature with 0 wins.

Min 2 free spins with 1x multiplier : rarely happens Smile
On average, 8 ~ 15 spins with 4x ~ 7x, as I experienced.

Please, check and share your thoughts Smile

I don't play Mice Dice often, and I know I have never hit the bonus round when I did play. I will have to check it out sometime when I deposit some place RTG, which is rarely now, because SLOTS SO TIGHT! Sad

I really dislike Mice Dice and they way you have to pay extra on every spin for the feature. Its great if it pays well but I feel like I already paid for it on all the spins leading up to that point.

Yeah, I don't like the extra bet for the Feature guarantee, either.
All the games with the Feature guarantee charges the extra.

I experienced a fun bonus round at Miami Club Casino. I accepted a bonus, and I deposited a small amount.

I was reading the reviews of Miami Club from other players, and I read my older review of the casino and I also read newflorida's review to get some ideas for some games to play. I noticed I had put High Roller on my list of fun games there, and I had completely forgotten about that game so decided to play.

Very soon into playing I hit the three dice for 15 free spins, plus the x6 during that round. I hit one spin for $247.00 which was very nice to see! Smile I then hit another for $20 and another for $51.60 and also some smaller ones. I ended the round with $416.98 which is a fantastic bonus round for me! Smile

The second bonus round I only made a little over $20.00.

The entire time I was betting either $1.00 per spin or $1.25 per spin.

These are the types of bonus rounds we want to happen every single time, right? Wink Smile

Lol, I know! But the games at Miami move so fast you cannot get a screenshot. Once it hits, it is gone to the next spin, and they don't have the little announcement at that end to display the bonus total - you have to know what you had when bonus round started to figure out the total amount won. That is one thing I do not like about most of the games there.

I promise I will take screenshots whenever I can! Smile

Something similar happened with me a few months back during an online slot of Tivoli. It was very disheartening. Reaching the bonus round and not getting much. There should be some leniency.
