The slot has a bonus buy feature though, as we know how long it can take to trigger the free spins feature. On Nero's fortune it took well over 500 spins, every time, only triggered it 3 times in total, but the biggest win was just over 100x. This one came in at around 250 spins but was struggling to get an x50 winner. Even a few bonus buys could not win me some of my money back.
You can easily build that multiplier, however, the game just misses, and does not hit at all. Wilds are all over the reels, but you always 1 symbol short. One of the best mechanics to frustrate the average players, just like Napoleon from Blueprint like to troll. You know when that wilds land on reels 1 and 2, and a scatter drop on reel 3 to mess up the win, yet you think "Oh that was close" let's take another spin.
A personally feel both these slots are money wasters, unless volatile extreme, as in Lil Devil, where 99 out of 100 heart-stopper bonuses pay something with enhanced features, in this case over 20x multiplier, but symbols simply does not connect.
You need a good starting balance, but my advice would be, just buy the bonus if you can, this will save you so much frustration and time from your daily life, as getting that 3rd scatter is a big problem.
I like the theme, graphics, and soundtrack though, even though it's not my cup of tea. I'll give a bash, maybe once a year or unless I can see more 1000x winners constantly, otherwise I will park this one in my freezer for now!
