skill based slot is a slot where a user can anyhow control how he will get more bonuses

My GF and I played some skill based slots at Foxwoods that were unlike any we played before. They were basically mobile games, it was called the Gamblit Gaming Tri Seat or something like that

TL;DR is that the rules about how much wagers cost were confusing because there is no spin button, and the payouts were miserable. No game held our attention for longer than a few minutes.

Match 3volution: 2048/match three type game where three matching symbols merge to form the next in a hierarchy. It costs $1 every time you touch the screen. It took us quite a while to realize this AND took us a while to figure out how we got paid. Every time you match 3 symbols a small wheel spins on the right side. You have a chance of getting paid, getting nothing, something good happening like a wild card or a chance to move a bad placement or SOMETHING BAD HAPPENING for just playing the game correctly. When we did get a payout it was rarely more than $1 (but we did get a few in the 2-4$ range). Luckily my GF is good at these types of games and I think we actually managed to make around $6 but I couldn’t figure out if higher payout is based on higher skill or if we just got lucky. This game could REALLLY hurt your wallet if you are bad at this sort of game.

thx.
i've seen this one played.
the lady playing it was awful with the special movement abilities.
a few times she could have swapped 2 symbols with make a 3 match of a higher symbol. but she kept on using it to 3 match the lower symbols.
it seemed to have worked. she cashed out with $1 profit after playing 20min or so.
unless she popped in more $ since i last walked by her 20min ago.

i played some Match Evolution.
it's setup like a phone app game where you get points for matches.
i guess the game is trying to attract the Candy Crush demographic by giving points.
but the points seem to be meaningless and doesnt seem to affect payout.

minimum payout for a 3match is .20 and max is $50 on the minimum $1 bet.
if you do multiple matches at the same time, the top payout increases but not the minimum.
for a dual 3match, the max payout increases to $60. for a triple 3match, the max is $80. etc...
but the minimum is still $0.20.
i did a triple 3match and only got $0.40. :(

matching of higher level characters also doesnt increase payout.
it's still between .20 and $50 for a single match.

if you do a single 5match or more, you get more points than a 3match.
again, it doesnt seem like more points equate to more payout.

it is a fun game where the skill is on the placing of the characters to get matches and deciding on how to use the special abilities.
but i dont see a correlation between more skill equating to more $.
payouts seem random which is infurating when you plan for a triple 3match and dont get rewarded for your effort. :(



most of my payouts were either less than my $1bet, a special ability which doesnt pay anything, no payout, or a hazard which hinders me.

i put in a $20, got down to $8 then got awarded $10 for a 3match.
then i quit for a $2 loss.

anyone find a good strategy for this game?

Here's the basic article I wrote a year ago on skill-based slots: https://easy.vegas/games/slots/skill

I'll have to spend some time checking out the various offerings to make it more specific rather than general, but I hope the general version is pretty accurate.

Ya, I've seen people playing those too. I really don't see the "skill" there rather "understanding" of what you gotta do in the game. But it's called gambling for a reason, it' pure luck there unless you know how to tilt the machine hahaha

i vote Match Evolution if you want a skill based game to analyze. (see my review above.)

and someone said on the previous page, Match Evolution was the only game out of the multiple skill games on that machine that a player came out ahead.
