drtheolen, I was basically waiting for your comment, since it seems like me and you are the biggest Rival-fans here, although it sucks that no Rival casino allows EcoCard
users anymore, the same with all their promotions.. So that sucks, as I'd love to try out the old school games again.
And you are absolutely precise and accurate on your review of MG. Yeah, they do have a nice batch of slots, but the longevity of their slots isn't of Rival quality, even if you have several winning combinations etc. However, I do enjoy those slots at MG that gives you several bonus STAGES each time you get a bonus. Not just the same repetetive stage/scene/setting all the time. A good example on that is the new MG video slot "Lucky Witch". If you are lucky enough to get the bonus feature there, it's rather exciting, to be honest. You should try it out, if you haven't. I've tried that game so many times, but I found it boring since the bonus feature is the ONLY exciting feature on that game. The fs-feature is rather useless. 10x spins with no additional bonus either, so yeah.. Not many places where one can get that, to be honest.
Yes, you are absolutely right. Especially NetEnt seems to be taking things into another level when it comes to expanding the possibilities of video slots, as J&BS-slot have shown us. I really like its bonus feature and the fs-feature + the rolling wilds that includes fs. That's a goodie idea, I reckon. No wonder why it's become such a popular video slot. Another thing I do miss as a bonus feature would be a nice wheel of fortune
-thing, like the one presented at Mega Fortune (NetEnt). It's always nice when you progress to the final wheel and you feel the heart is bumping even more.. Ahh.. such a thrilling feeling that, I tell you. Besides, it is a popular video slot since it contains such nice features. But yeah, it seems like NetEnt keeps on coming with nice, innovative, interesting and awesome slots for us to play on. Looking forward to the progress.
So yeah, there are heaps of interesting bonus features, free spin features and games to play. Just 1 very important factor missing: It seems like an impossible task to find a video slot that combines those 3 things/factors, whatsoever, which is quite so unfortunate.
So. Wouldn't be that far off if I'd say that NetEnt is "taking over" Rival when it comes to all the above mentioned stuff, hmm? MG is still behind, although they have like a dozen of slots to offer, but the fun factor is missing. And you ask why have fun when you are playing? Does one even need to say anything to see the answer in that question? But yeah, unless you are on auto-play, you DO wanna have fun while you're trying to win the cash, right?
Ah, getting stoked for the new Starburst now, yes!
