Even with your system? I thought you said that it could beat slots?



I can. But, usually if I play slots its just for mindless relaxation, I dont want to sit there and think about the math for every spin.

Rumble Rumble

This game seems to get some play, but I have no idea why. I think I've played enough on it to be qualified to offer a few observations:

1.) This game can often be a two-way must-hit (Major/Minor), but it doesn't have to be.

2.) This game has three decent pays which consist of:

A.) Free Games
B.) "Super Sweet!"
C.) "Super Sweet," during Free Games.

A.) Free Games are initiated by hitting three (or more) of the appropriate Free Games symbol. This will initiate Free Games and will also pay Scattered for the symbol hits. IN the event that Wilds are, "Covering up," a Free Games symbol, the Free Games symbol will still apply.

-Free Games are retriggered by hitting any two or more of the Free Games symbol while Free Games are active. This shall also pay Scattered, unless it is only two Free Games symbols, in which event, five additional Free Games will be rewarded with no Scattered pays.

-If three (or more) Free Games are hit during Free Games I THINK you still only get five additional Free Games, but that could be wrong. It could retrigger the regular amount of Free Games in addition to the remaining. It could vary by machine, so that may be why I don't clearly remember.

B.) "Super Sweet!"

This is the only decent line pay on the entire game and pays 50x the bet during the regular game and 100x the bet during Free Games. I believe, on some titles, that it can also respin itself during Free Games and pay twice.

-Super Sweet is triggered by hitting the special symbol in the center of Reels 2 & 4 at which point the game will proclaim, "Super Sweet," and will cause the whole screen to appear as Wilds.

-If the special symbol hits the center of Reels 2 or 4, but not both, the game will declare, "Sweet Zone," and turn Reels 1-3 Wild or Reels 3-5 Wild, which depends on the initiating Reel. Again, the initiating Reels are 2 and 4, respectively.

-If the special symbol is hit on Reels 2 or 4, but does not appear in the center, then it will just turn that reel Wild.

C.) Other Pays:

From what I can tell, the best possible other pay (aside from Free Games) is usually 20x the bet and consists of a Sweet Zone along with a stack of the highest paying other symbol and a stack of wilds, or stacks of the highest paying other symbol, on the other two reels.

Does the Game Suck?

In my opinion, unequivocally. I give it a 2 out of 10.

People must like it, though, because it has been in many casinos for a long time. I couldn't imagine playing it for any reason other than the must-hit being good, bur for the must-hit to ever get good, people must play it. I have found good must-hits on it, ergo, people are playing them.

Here are the things I don't like about it, although, I admit one or two of these might only be things an AP cares about...

1.) No Slam-Stopping!!!

-This means you have to sit through every agonizingly boring spin at a really slow pace. If you have a positive play and want to minimize Variance, (which I do) that entails betting the minimum as long as the pays are not otherwise effected, (i.e. proportional to bet) so not being able to slam stop really sucks.

At fastest, I want to say you maybe get 800 SPH. That blows. Maybe they could make the base return percentage better if it could be played faster.

2.) Animations on Worthless Spins!

-This is kind of part and parcel with #1, but the game insists on doing the full Wild expansion and, "Sweet Zone," animations even on losing spins. For instance, the special symbol on the top/bottom of reels 2, 4 or both, will result in the Reel being expanded even on a losing spin. Perhaps worse, the, "Sweet Zone," animation will take place if the special symbol hits the center of Reel 4, even if nothing on Reels 1&2 match and the spin is a loser anyway.

3.) High Variance

-This is something of a high variance game with seemingly little upside, unless on a positive must-hit. It is NOTHING to run 50-60% on the reels over a prolonged period of time, by which I mean a couple thousand, or more, spins. You would never see, "Runs," this poor on Video Poker...and dare I say you wouldn't see them on the vast majority of slot machines, except maybe some of the newer Bells & Whistles 3D ones.

-The fact is that there are so few results that pay 10x the bet, or more, that it often feels like you're just going down the tubes with the whole thing. If the special symbols and Free Games aren't forthcoming, it is nothing to go a couple dozen spins without a single one being profitable.

Conclusion

Why anyone likes these games, I have no idea. But, some people must, or the must-hits would be at a good number much more rarely than I find them...not that I find them at a good number all that often.

If you aren't yelling at your idiot teammates to take b flag and sweating like a hooker in church while drinking monster or red bull as you noscope noobs off the spawn and yelling at mom to change out the Gatorade pee bottle,

You aint trying hard enough

I know slot players who really don't understand what they're getting into.
