    I like to play Davinci because I'm usually able to ride out the volatility and get a few big hits. And I like that it can pay big multiples of your bet even without being in a bonus. I don't play a lot of Cleo II, but when I have, it strikes me as having similar volatility. Wolf Run was another that I'd put in that category.

    I see Buffalo mentioned here a lot, but have never played it.

    Anyone care to compare the volatility of these games if you've played several of them? When you play them, do you load up, or go the opposite way and commit only a small amount and hope for the quick hit?

    ETA: wrong thread, should be moved to Casino Gaming

    Wolf Run and Cleo II are both hit and run type machines to me. I'll throw in 100 and hope to catch a bonus quick. If that doesn't happen and you burn through the 100 you don't chase it on those machines.

    Buffalo is dependent on getting the bonus, and picking up a few wild multipliers in the bonus. I can usually grind for a while on Buffalo. Also with all the new varieties of buffalo, there are some that the wilds always have a multiplier (even in the normal games) and there are a bunch of other features. One nice thing is that you can bet a small amount on Buffalo and still win a big chunk of change. So on occasions where I just want to dink around and get some free drinks while killing time, or if I'm playing at a casino that I don't plan to get any comps from, I'll just play something like Buffalo where my 80 cent bet could still hit for a few hundred bucks, or even a HP.

    Another one similar to all of these is Wicked Winnings. That machine will suck the money out of you faster than a Dyson, but when it hits, it hits big.

    From personal experience, Cleo II has higher volatility than the Buffalo slots. I've had very good hits on Buffalo during regular spins. In Cleo II, the bonuses make you or break you. Unfortunately, (on $1 denom) you can eat through a thousand in no time without a bonus. Of course, a bonus with retrigger can often times net you 50x - 100x your initial bet. Cleo is the TDB of multi line slots.
