Most Overrated Casino Game

20 replies • Last post

I was thinking about this the other day. Every single casino ad I see on TV shows Starburst by NetEnt like it's the bee's knees. I'm sorry guys, but this game sucks. I hate it with a passion. Why is it so popular? It's vastly overrated. Features are basic. Visuals aren't great, and I've never won more than a few bucks playing it.

In your experience, what casino game is the most overrated? Why do you not like it?

I also never liked Starbust slot, the payouts are very low compared to the bets.
For me Book of Dead slot is the best.

I love Starburst! 😂 But I love it for the absolute simplicity in features and design, it's also not a game that you're risking much money if played with minimum stakes. But there are definitely games that are really overrated.

I don't like Playngo book of dead or legacy of dead and all that belong there. Basically all slots with the word book or dead in the name.

I understand that. I think they all look good but the mechanics are quite simple.

Book of Dead slot is on every list of the highest grossing slot games of all time, but you have to keep in mind that due to the fact that this is a high volatility slot, which means the payouts are high but hard to hit.

For me they are cheap copies. I always enjoyed the Novomatic slots. Here in Germany they started to disappear from the Casinos in 2018.
Book of Ra never failed me.

I have to agree, i've won most of my withdrawals from playing Starburst by Netent & Mystery Reels by Red Tiger. I've yet to reach all bar symbols, i was 1 symbol off so hears hoping it happens soon 🙂

Starburst has to be up there but for me ... hang on I'm putting on my hazard suit... it has to be...

Dead or Alive by Net Ent!

So many bonus rounds played, never once have I seen the fabled 5 locked wilds on one line. I've seen so many mega wins from others on this game, but for me it was always just a borefest that never won me anything significant.

Hahaha I agree with you Ed. Dead or alive IS a borefest.

Another game that's over rated is Razor Shark.
Damn all the streamers shovel $ after $ into that slot and yes I agree some have won big but another damn boring game and more often than not slays more than pays.

I know the feeling. Yet my best friend tried the game for the first time and got the extra 5 spins and over 1000x bet win on a minimum stake. Never has it happened to me!

Haha that's funny. The thing that was actually unfair was when I tried Book of Shadows bonus buy in fun mode to try the game. Got the highest paying symbol full screen for a 10,000x bet win- in fun mode! 😂

I have played Dead or Alive slot several times but never have I won more than 100 times my stake. difficult to win with this slot.

Well, if you consider popular as "marketed", maybe that's way. The ads are a strategy to boost a game regardless if it's a good one or not.
As long as they pursue people into playing it, just because it's "popular", the campaign will be successful.
At least that's my humble opinion 🙂

I think that Starbust is a timeless classic that remains as relevant and fun today as it was when it was first released. Starburst is one of the most popular slots you'll find online, and it's not uncommon for it to be the slot attributed to free spin promotions and free spin welcome offers\

Thats my personal opinion

Thank you! I hate Starburst, but it's so popular that I feel ashamed to admit that. I just never got the appeal. I know it's a little older, but it was 2012, right? Rainbow Riches was like 2009, and I love that one.

Maybe it's because Starburst has never been kind to me. I have tried to play many times but I have always walked away with sizeable losses. Same goes for Gonzo's Quest, although I can see why people like that one.

I think what makes or maybe made, some of these games great, Starburst, Book of Dead, Dead or Alive and others, isnt more about the game, but more about WHEN, they came out.
Book of Dead, and Starburst were almost the first of their kind that really got noticed because of their providers.
Book of Dead with the symbols expanding to fill the reels in free spins. Starburst paying out left to right and right to left, not to forget it paid out often enough, and just enough to keep a player playing .
Dead or Alive has been very generous to me, 1 and 2, but as far as the first one goes, I'd have to agree with CL-Ed. I'm a fan, but it's not my favorite.

Lately I've been playing Legacy of Dead slot a lot and found that this slot has an RTP higt. what is interesting is that you will have the opportunity to get up to 9 expansion symbols by activating the free spins again.

I used to love Nolimit City games but the past few releases I don't go near to. Unfortunately they hype these super massive wins on their games, but for the most part it comes with an extreme cost- 1000x or even more for a bonus buy- that's in my opinion simply irresponsible. So for me they go into the overrated list. Once I tried Mental game- it's confusing visually and not a pleasant design to look at. Bought the 1000x bet bonus and it paid 30x bet. Promised myself - never again.
