    So it's here. We've seen it lurking in the games selection but now it's available.

    105,000 credits. 1,500 bet. 1 bonus for 8,000 credits. I had high hopes. VERY disappointing.

    Oh well. Looks like it's the same crap as China Mystery.

    :thumbsdown:

    It's not a great game in the casino either, I get why they picked China Mystery but of all the games in the Konami library, Lotus Land should have been one of the last one picked to port to an online game.

    Just scored my biggest bonus playing this game. 3.6 million on a bonus round. Been playing My Vegas for two years.

    My guess is they want to give players a positive enough experience with the game that they choose it in the casino and lose their money there. (Though, not sure how much good it does when it's a chip-sucker on MyVEGAS...)

    Yeah, that's what I don't get - why they imagine that anyone would see it and think, "ooh! I tried playing that one for 20 minutes in myvegas and it sucked all my chips and gave me crap-all! I should play that one with real money!" Now, if I walked in a casino and saw a BetRock slot machine... I'd be tempted. Even if I knew that they must have toned it down, I'd still be tempted to throw a few dollars in, at least. But why would I want to play a game with real money that sucks even when you're playing it with fake chips?

    I think that's where the volatility factor comes into play. Those games might be chip suckers for some, but if there are enough examples of HUGE hits (like what Guardian mentioned above, and what gets posted in some of the Facebook groups), then that could be enough to sway some people into thinking "I'm due for one of those mega-hits! I know it's possible because I've seen that it's happened to other people!"

    I know that's not a completely rational way of thinking, but since when has gambling been completely rational? LOL

    A lot of people already know that game. from the casino. It's been out for a good while. I don't think playing it in MyVegas would encourage a regular casino visitor to play it if they don't care for it. But there are some really popular games that if added again won't change casino patterns but would entice to play online longer.

    Yes, I would have enjoyed much more Dragon's Law.

    Oh, huh. I was under the impression that the other myvegas games other than the two crappy ones were made from scratch for MyVegas (I'm not even remotely a gambler, and in fact, haven't been to Vegas much yet; MyVegas might change that somewhat, if they'd ever get around to letting us redeem our lp...) The other MyVegas games are actually also real machines? (Presumably with like waaaay worse odds...)

    I heard a lot of griping about this game. But, I've just came off a wild "heater" (to quote the father in the Hangover movies). No complaints here. Won 7 figures a couple of times. Rode the max bet feature a while. Leveled up about 5 times? 6 times? I lost count. I won so much I feel kind of dirty now. I like it.

    I agree. Why would I play it with real money when it can't payout with free credits. If I were Konami, I'm not sure I'd have MyVegas represent the game.

    Betting 15k, got the bonus spins. Hit the lady symbol with a bunch of 2x, 3x and 4x scattered about. 5 million in that one spin, nice way to boost up the red chip count.

    also not impressed....have spent tons of chips with very little action overall....China Mystery is not a favorite either

    Betrock has given me the most luck overall and Bet The Farm seems to allow me to stay on an even keel here and there

    Feels very high volatility. You have to hit triple lotus and then get lucky during the free rolls for a great return. I had one high payout but it sucked all the winnings and more back in a fairly short amount of time. I found this to be true for both facebook and android variants.

    Agree with LVfan on Bet the Farm (facebook) for sustained returns. Feels like I can go forever without my chip count going anywhere.

    Yeah, all but two games are made by myVegas and do NOT exist in casinos. And many of those games are pretty low variance compared to casino slot machines. I believe the paybacks are roughly the same as the typical casino penny slot though (why it's very expensive to love penny slots). They used to return around 90% when they first came out according to analysis from a person way better at math than I am...:eek: But it wouldn't surprise me if they were in the mid to high 80s like a typical strip casino.

    And even though many people here are complaining about the Konami games...some people will probably get sucked into trying it at the casino anyway. I am guessing this is helping konami more than hurting them.

    A lot of the games can't really exist in Vegas, at least as is, because of the accumulative bonuses, things like collecting multiple bonuses for the Luxor wheel spin, that sort of thing. With as many players play MyVegas and how many different kinds of slots exist, it does seem surprising that they haven't tried to adapt a couple of them for real-money play, though. I'd play that farming one for a few bucks.

    As for this Lotus game it's become my favorite (over the Jack and the Beanstalk) simply because it's the most continuous play. It never stops for bonuses or big plays, only to reset the autoplay or maybe the first puzzle piece of the day. Hitting my biggestbonus ever (455K on a 1500 spin) helps, but hitting autoplay and checking back in a half-hour helps more.

    I've been playing the Lotus game since it came out ~ playing 1500 I got a bonus spin for 700,000+. I'm currently over 2 million points ~ a first for me!

    I've been playing lotus on mobile for about a week now, I've been betting 30k and have got up to 45 mil from this game.

    My biggest win was from getting 5 lotus which gave me 18 mil and 20 spins.

    So I couldn't resist trying it a little more, on smaller spins. I did get one big 3-lotus win (like 600k from a 6k spin). The next bonus I got, you want to know how much I won? It was pretty amazing, but not in the good way. Spinning 6k, I won a bonus round of... 5k. Total. Luls.

    Last Sunday on a lark, I was trying to load the game on my iMac. It was going very slow and I had given up multiple times before. By the time I was done playing (starting with 300 k) I was up to 15 million. I played all week......and now am convinced its my go to game. Then again Friday night I was playing Jack & The Beanstock and got 3 million on free spins @ 15 k a crack!
