There was just a misunderstanding as to how much time we would devote to Ocean Magic.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I've been reading about various advantage slots and tried to correlate it with what I find in the tribal casinos in washington state.

However, it seems we have a different version of the ocean magic type slots. I can find both fu ru dong hai and dragonsphere, but on both machines the orbs never stay from play to play. Instead they appear randomly and go away again after each spin.

Does anyone know if this is due to WA law requiring machines to be lottery based? And does this mean that advantage slots are effectively illegal in WA?

What's interesting is that I have found Aladdin here too, and after 8 sessions (hanging around for multiple hours each session) of which 7 was very profitable, I'm having a hard time accepting that it was just pure luck so far, but I do understand my sample size is quite small.

Any thoughts?

I think Indian casinos are scary.

I've seen the OM games in class II. Bubbles randomly appearing and disappearing. If there is a way to beat those, I don't know what it is.

Ocean Magic has just started appearing on UK based IGT machines under the same conditions you describe. The bubbles don't stay from one spin to the next, so there is no opportunity to vulture.

Yes, Ocean Magic (and also Dragonsphere) has been on the IGT machines here in the UK for a good while now - also in Betfred and William Hill shops as well. When I first saw them in the bookies shops i thought it would be a licence to print money but sadly, they're on the same program as the casinos. I have literally no idea why the software is different but I suspect it's probably due to some random programming error (you can't even scroll through the stakes on any game on the IGT casino terminals) as opposed to because they tried to make them 'unplayable'.

@Blackjacklad - do you AP slots in UK? Would be interested to have a chat - been doing it for 20 years.

@Wizard - thanks for posting the OM payout percentages by grid position, if you could do this for OM Grand as well that would be superb. Particular interest would be viability of low-ish spots on reel 4 when machine target % is reasonably high (e.g. 90%).

Yes, it would be great if the Wizard could share a similar chart/strategy for OM grand. There are starting to be more of these and some casinos only have the grand. Thanks!

You're welcome. That is on my "to do" list.
