I get a similar return. I would also exercise great caution with these. I once spent 12 hours and damn near 5 figures trying to catch a Mega at $2.40. I added 170+ to the meter.

I agree, I had adjusted my starting numbers drastically. I was only playing when mini was 55 or something like that.



I dunno if I've ever seen the mini that high. I never looked very seriously though.

Chasing a mega? Lol good luck with that. In all my play I only hit the mega 2 or 3 times.

When I was taking pictures for my article my friend was chasing the Mega. I eventually got bored of watching him and said "good night." He texted me about 15 minutes later, saying he hit it, for a $500+ win. However, I think he sank about $300 into the game before hitting it.

Shortly after they reduced the pay, I spotted one while with some out of town friends. A great chance to show off how sharp I am.

They awkwardly peeled off one by one as I got buried alive.

An outlier, ask DJATC about the one time he chased a mega lol. I think he lost almost 2k.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

What's this about the reduced pay? Did they release a HD 2.0 that has a different a way of distributing its payback? (For example more on the base game, less in the free games).

More like its the same split, but with a longer bonus interval. So more cost in time and money to get the bonus, but then a bigger payout (or, at least, more spins) once you're in.
