Need some help with bovada slots

15 replies • Last post

Not sure if any one is familiar with Dragons slot on Bovada. I was in the free spin bonus, when this happened to me. From the screenshots you can see I had three wilds in a row. This should have resulted in the wilds expanding and covering the whole reel. The wilds did not expand. Should have been a pretty nice pay out but I only received some peanuts.

The rules state from your website directly
Wild-Growth: Any wilds on the screen grow to fill the entire reel they are in and all wins are multiplied by two. Each position on that reel is considered wild.

I have contacted Bovada, multiple departments, times and they keep giving me the run around. Ridiculous! I have been a pretty good customer of the site but I guess that doesn't matter. Any suggestions or avenues?

I'm not sure what the deal is there. Would the wilds only trigger if they were going to generate a win in the first place?

Hopefully something comes out and gives you a bit of clarity as to the rules of the slot.

The "Dragon Modifications" are random events that MAY happen on any free-spin game. They are not guaranteed. Clearly they didn't trigger on your free spin. Game appears to be operating normally.

Straight from the game rules, bolding mine:

Quote:

Dragon Free Spins
Three or more Scatter symbols trigger the Dragon free spins and the player is awarded 10 free spins.
Each free spin may have a Dragon modify the reels:
Wild Explosion: A random symbol is chosen to become wild. Every instance of the chosen symbol on the reel window is changed into a wild.
Wild-Growth: Any wilds on the screen grow to fill the entire reel they are in and all wins are multiplied by two. Each position on that reel is considered wild.
Metamorpha-Wild: Wilds are randomly added to the reel window. Up to 15 Wilds can be added. All scatter wins are paid even if replaced with a wild.
Win Multiplication: All wins are multiplied by a random multiplier between 2 and 10.

2 CL-Ed, bossulo

I'm not talking about "dragon modifications".
The rules state word for word

Wild-Growth: Any wilds on the screen grow to fill the entire reel they are in and all wins are multiplied by two. Each position on that reel is considered wild.

This rule has no word random in it.
Any explanations?

You're not listening to the explanation. All the features listed there are called dragon modifications and can happen randomly on free spins. Wilds don't expand in free spins unless the "wild growth dragon modification" occurs.

Why do you think wild growth is special from any of the other features listed around it and why aren't you complaining about those features not occurring?

I'm not fighting or disagreeing with you. It's nice that you are putting good Intel into this question. I believe the rules say that one of the four of modifications may occur during a spin. It's not saying that the wild- growth may occur if a wild is on the reel. Has no mention of randomly occuring for the wild-growth.
I have an example(screenshot) where two wilds, bookend during free spin bonus expanded to cover the entire reel. The wilds expanded here, so you are saying that this was just a random event?
Thanks

I'm saying on that spin [in the screenshot you just posted] it clearly triggered the "Wild Growth" dragon mod and expanded your wilds, which as the rules state is essentially random and may or may not happen during free spins.

Wild growth IS one of the 4 dragon mods that MAY occur on free spins. You've posted screenshots of it happening and it not happening, proving the game is functioning as the rules state.

I think the dragon mod features are possible on regular spins too, just much more rare.

Yeah I'm pretty sure Reckless Bets is right on this one. That screen you posted that lists the different dragon modifications suggests that they are a feature. The screen on the paytable before that one states that the features may occur during a free spins round.

I take it that the other three features listed on that screen - Wild Explosion, Metamorphosis Wild, and Win Multiplication - are not happening on every spin. So I wouldn't expect the Wild Growth to trigger on every spin either.

Edit: I checked the game on Bovada myself and yes, the paytable clearly states that the features may occur on each free spin. So clearly it is random and not guaranteed to happen.

The verbage is not very clear. The wording on wild explosion and metamorphosia wild directly state random but no mention of random for wild growth.

Seems pretty clear to me. The initial "Each free spin may have a Dragon modify the reels:" is enough to declare the feature itself is random. Wild Explosion and Metamorphosia both include the word "random" because they deal with replacing certain random symbols or locations with wilds.

I've seen a lot of questionably-worded and vague slot rules but I can't say this is one of them.

Yes, you're talking about two different "randoms":

1. The feature itself is randomly triggered during free spins. So any one of those four things might happen or they might not.

2. Once triggered, some of those features randomly replace symbols on the reels with wilds, or award a random multiplier etc.
