Thread: Are the slots any use?

    Are the slots any use?

    When I started my second attempt at SP, I intended to take it slowly, not moving on to the next region until I'd finished the digsites and at least started upgrading them. But that all changed when I discovered the slots. At last I could rush ahead to where winning rubies was easily affordable, knowing that I wouldn't be stuck with useless coins.

    Of course a few months later I was stuck with useless coins, as it's much too tedious to acquire rubies that way; the stakes are far too low.

    The one good thing about the slots appeared to be the events. But the first time I encountered a slots event I didn't have enough rubies to take advantage of it. And the second time I encountered a slots event never occurred - eventually I emailed PG and discovered they'd been discontinued. The sign saying "EVENT COMING SOON" was lying.

    So am I right in thinking the slots are completely useless now? Or is there something I've missed?

    Sometimes I play the casino for the shovel and power token bundles. But when I see how many rubies I've wasted I get out as fast as I can feeling pretty silly.

    Thanks. I'd never previously won one of those, so assumed they must be event only. But with a Crisis Passage scene still locked and not much time left, I decided to give it a go. But when I did, the game spontaneously quit when I reached Free Spin. So at least partly due to the time spent relaunching it, I never did unlock it in time.

    But I had another go later to see what the prizes were like. And after losing well over a thousand rubies and gaining more useless coins than I did in the last month of trading, I'd won ten shovels, thirty shovels and ten power tokens. Then I thought I'd hit the jackpot, spinning four rubies. But rather than the 10000 I only won 300. Any idea what's going on there?

    We had a discussion about the 10K Ruby Jackpot a while back. Start here...
