I voted for "other". I like slots that are "bankable". The "bank" can be either cash (think "Must Hit By") or special features (think "Farmville" or "Ocean Magic")... or both.

I will also vote for Other.

Advantage Play aside, I think I would generally prefer any slot that offers an opportunity to win the spin (or break even) for as long as possible.

For that reason, I think a game such as Diamond Hunt is pretty well-designed and wish they would make that a must-hit. I think it's a legitimately fun game, but I've only ever played it once or twice for very small amounts because there was no advantage to be had.

The way it works is that the Free Games symbol can appear on any of the reels and you need three of them---that's not unusual. What's a little bit unique is that you collect diamonds on regular spins (and Free Games) and get paid based on the number of diamonds you get, starting with five diamonds. I believe five diamonds is breakeven, but don't specifically remember.

Anyway, full reel stacks of diamonds (which would be four) are frequent, so if you've even acquired one diamond, you're still technically in it until the last reel falls because it could be a full stack of diamonds.

There are some games out there where, if you don't have two symbols matching on 1&2 and don't have a Free Games symbol on two (some games even require Free Games symbols left to right starting from Reel 1) then the spin is already over. I don't generally play slots for fun, but the only game that has this dynamic that I still consider a fun game (that can occasionally be played at an advantage) is Big City 5's. There are no scatters, so if nothing matches on 1 & 2 and you don't have Free Games on both, that spin is over.

So, my short answer is no specific theme, but any slot that keeps the possibility of a win alive as long as possible. That does not include slots with a, "Mystery," feature that might trigger after a losing spin.
