new b3 content on the machines
#1
Noticed a lot of the new content on the terminals is quite high varience online slots that have be rejigged to fit the b3 category.

Perhaps a increse in the prizes for the b3 cat is coming? 

Otherwise why would you want to play the in shop version?

It's coming alright, too many subtle little signs across the industry for there not to be increases across the board.
The future is much like the present, only longer.

Most of the punters have already wised up to it and have ditched the bookies for online!

I mean why on earth would you play stuff like Montezuma with a £500 jackpot cap, when you can play it without a cap (OK there will be one but it will be very very high!) at your own leisure, online casinos will chuck bonuses at you too which you obviously need to wager but many now offer the option to cash out part of your balance at any point and forefeit the rest of the money

In shop

-cap
-2 quid for 20 winlines
-No multiplier on retrigger

Online

-30 winlines all stakes
-no cap so can still do big wins off shit stakes
-Multiplier retrigger

The one thing I have been noticing with all the new SG stuff is that they love a "big win" screen. If I'm playing £2 a pop I don't consider 10 more presses as a BIG WIN.

Exactly, it's crazy.

I saw a guy yesterday on Montezuma in Jennings bookies

£2 a spin, he got the 3 discs, 25 free spins, then straightaway retrigger for 25 more

With 44 spins left he'd got the £500 with a nice array of the Montezuma heads on 10x

I said to him "that's very nice, but if that was online it wouldn't stop at 250x"

He didn't know what I meant so I explained that online on £2 a spin I'd be expecting £1000-1500 back with that kind of win in the first few spins, plus the bookies don't even do retriggers all at 10x for example

Wonder if any of the loophole finders at the top of the bookies have considered online "terminals" within shop. Ladbrokes bookmakers(and Internet cafe)

But you're right Russ and JP 24/7, somethings going on.

They never seem to have enough cash in the shops to pay you a £500 win never mind a £1000 win!

Have played a fair bit of the new reels of gold lately on mega spins. Have gambled to 100 free spins on 7 or 8 occasions and every one has been 500 with more than 50 spins remaining. One gave me the pot with 91 spins remaining!! Got to assume online that would have been a bazooka win!! Now gamble to 60 spins and collect and seem to still hit pot with a handful of spins left more often than not. Favourite game at the moment by a mile!

I'm afraid I'll have to stroke against the grain. If a game exists as both a B3 and a B1, I would rather play the B3. It's capped sure, but I prefer a kinder profile. Thai Princess and Thai Flower are good examples of this as B3 vs B1 versions.

The non capped jackpot does lead to a higher variance game, with less say 200-500 wins for a 2 quid stake, to account for the potential for it to go massive! Only the case for high variance games really though

The obvious implication is that on playing such high variance games ie rhino/lucky lady's charm it's gonna be shit or bust to the highest degree lol! With bust happening 90%+ off the time! But the win could be huge to conpensate

A lot (probably at least 75%) of online slots although there isn't a cap, are very low variance and any win over 500 times stake is pretty much unheard off so it's basically no different to a bookies one anyhow! Apart from higher rtps in bookies. Of course there's often some silly progressive jackpot that is longer than lottery odds you'll get!!

For me I dislike both tbh! If I'm gonna punt something like that it'll be roulette over slots!

Don't forget the disgusting RTP% they offer in the LBOs.  They even penalise players with less disposable income by forcing them to play at £2 a spin to get a semblance of a decent RTP%.  All about the bottom line.  Nah - I'll play at 10p a spin online at 96% thanks.  Why the fuck do I want to sit in an LBO and drink Happy Shopper tea out of a plastic cup when I can put a nice brew on at home and sit in bed?

They have to penalise them as they are taking up space on a machine that a hi roller could want to play so they need to make a higher percentage per spin off them to make up for it!

There's no such issue online as there is infinite space!

Yes I know why they have to do it, or at least why their finance people push for it, my point is that in doing so they are not being competitive at all. There's literally nothing to encourage people to move away from online and go into a shop. Even if the bird behind the desk was a 10/10 supermodel and had to work topless I wouldn't punt slots in a shop at 90%.

You have the anti gambling pressure groups to thank for that, also...

lots more shops because they campaigned for limit on machines per shop.

Slasher, the Princess has been the better of the 2 for me this year!

Everyone on here have their favourites - it's subjective.

My post further up was comparing B3 vs B1.  Most people will disagree with me about B3's, but for me, I've always had better experiences from B3's than with B1's.  If I was to switch to online gambling full time, then it's up to me.  I would have to make that decision.

Take Imperial Dragon (B3 and B1) as an example too.  Quoted from this thread.

bookies are 250x max win on the highest rtp per game, not many online slot with capped win potenial that low.
