I happened to find a strange rule in RTG game - Ritchie Valens.
The max win is capped at 2000 x bet !!!
I would be very happy if I won 2000 x bet, but also think that this is very strange.
As I saw somewhere long before, the max win per payline was like 50,000 x bet in RTG games.
And it is my first time to find this kind of rule in the individual game.
This is very common to RTG games, but not so much other providers. One game where I have seen it before a few times is Vulcan. If you re-trigger the free spins round the multiplier keeps going up until it can be as high as 300x I think. At some point you can hit the maximum win and the free spins round just stops even if you have more free spins left.

I thought that they began to put this max winning rule per spin in the new games rather recently, cause I don't really remember this clause in other old games.
Vulcan is of the most extreme variance with the re-triggers you mentioned, together with Mystic Dragon, as I think.
It would be very very disappointing if the spin stops in the middle.
I have the other new slot Secret Jungle, and it also says the max win per spin, but the limit is 50,000 x bet, huh.
And I also checked Vulcan, where the max win per spin is stated as 150,000 x bet, wow.
I never noticed this kind of max win before...
I don't find any consistency in the amount - 2000x, 50,000x, 150,000x.
Yeah I think it should be called RTG's patented "cover our asses" system. They design games with these potentially huge bonus rounds then make sure to limit their losses.
All their games have max win limits. It's listed in their rules on the last page. I've hit them several times and it's always frustrating, though I've seen a RTG dev claim the max win stipulation barely does anything to their RTP.
On their all-way pay games they give you a total bet multiplier as the max win, like 2000x on Ritchie Valens like you mentioned.
On regular slot games with paylines (like Vulcan), they list the max win per line bet, not the total bet multiplier. So you have to divide that by the number of paylines to actually get the total multiplier allowed (so for Vulcan, 150000 / 25 paylines = 6000x your total bet is the max win). It's obviously smaller on the other games as Vulcan is high volatility.
On the casinos that tell you RTG games volatility, you can see a pattern in that the "higher volatility" games have the higher max win limits.
Here's an example on The Elf Wars. Rules state a max win of 50,000 times line bet is the max win. Game has 50 lines, so at a $0.50 bet I hit the max win of $500 (truly 1000x your bet) and it immediately stopped my bonus.

Hi, Recless Bets, thanks for your explanation.
Now, I can understand this issue.
I wish you many 999 x bet x many free spin in the next play of The Elf Wars !!!
I didn't play their games for years now and that's just another reason to be added to the list of RTG games downsides, wasn't aware of it but I'm not fancy in them anyway.
As weird as it would be to have your bonus round just end like that, how awesome would it be to be winning that much for it to actually happen right lol
