    Cosmo should have it. They advertised it in the snail mail offer I just received.

    I played it at Cosmo last month. Pretty sure max bet was $2 which was surprising. IMG_0197.jpg I was actually disappointed with the game, but your mileage may vary.

    It was in a TR somewhere. Maybe Tanner's awesome one?

    It is at Cosmo I know that, from the TR. If I remember correctly is .25 per game?

    Thats covered in the video you posted: its a fixed 25 cents per game you want to play, up to 8 (max bet of $2.00). There are no bet increments.

    Wow. If this single bet size was forced by WMS, they better make a software update before wasting tons of money on this game.

    I thought there would be more denominations, Like $1.00 or $5.00 per game.

    You can play less than the $2.00 max bet by playing less games at once (IE: play only 5 of the games at a time and its $1.25 a spin)

    This is something I would probably want to play at $4.00 per spin and then if I can get on a bit of a roll or am just feeling lucky move it up to $6-8 per spin... but I am guessing they made it fixed because of the progressive jackpots where you can increase your chance to win a progressive by playing more games, but to actually give a bet multiplier would have to increase the progressive amounts and that might make it hard to control the game's payback if somebody was playing only one game but had a bet multiplier on that game (IE: playing just the Zeus game x5 for $1.25 and what that would have to do to the progressives - does the player get more chances or do they get a progressive multiplier)

    I'm not a fan of the multi screen games. Too much action. Plus the minimum bet is usually $2-$3 on machines like Wonder 4. The problem is you're only playing the minimum bet on those 4 games at that point, so your wins are miniscule as well. You can of course up your bet to 3-5x minimum bet, but then you're taking $10 rips. I'd rather just play the single screen game, and bet max like I normally do. I'm not getting more entertainment out of 4 screens, I'm just going to burn my money 4 times as fast, or play at the same rate, but have tiny wins. No Thanks...

    As for this particular game, it's the same problem. You're betting $2.00 a rip, but all your wins are going to be based of a .25 cent bet, which basically means you're just going to bleed money every spin, unless you hit a bonus (in which case you'll still only win a little bit compared to your overall wager) or a progressive. You would need an 8x win on a spin just to break even. A 100x win (which is rare) will net you a whopping $25. I'd rather take $2 rips on an old school three reel machine...

    I suppose this is the alternative to Wonder 4. I hope WMS counters with a Wonder 4 version with their classic 20 and 25 line games.

    I played it at Cosmo and had a great time. Actually won a little bit of money on it. Put a $20 in it and cashed out for $180. Bonused a few times and actually had a decent run since I only put $20 in

    Likewise. I played it at Harrahs Lake Tahoe this past weekend.

    Hit the Hot Hot bonus several times and the game bonuses several times as well. Was up a little over $100 when I left.
