REVOLUTION / BATTLEAXE / FIREBALL fruit
After a couple of rechips and possible emptiers the
machine you are likely to find has the capability to skint you very quickly.
The original program allowed you to gamble steps when awarded them which you
use on the Hi-Lo wheel to get better numbers to gamble on. There was apparently
a serious bug in the software and this feature was removed so you now had a
fixed number of steps on feature entry.
If you have to play it then a
good sign to watch out for is being awarded 3 or more steps. This should
coincide with you being able to get either the cash or feature ladders near the
top, or at least above the 5 pound win level. If it is doing this then force it
to the BREAK THE BANK feature which should start a streak. Note you can also
take the 15 cash win just below this and start a streak too. Once the streak is
triggered you will find you are awarded lots of extra steps and some of the
features will turn red indicating they are super features. This machine can
streak for 90+ but be warned as it can take a lot more than this without even
offering a jackpot.
A streak is usually triggered by taking the
£15 / £25 on the cash ladder, and not by going all the way to top
BREAK THE BANK. Once the streak is there you will bonuses like SELECTOR going
up very high and another jackpot is imminent. On occasions there does seem to
be "afterplay" where it is possible to collect a lot of £4 and £5
wins until the machine dies.
FIREBALL UPDATE: The latest machine and
also quite a tricky one. It can be very stubborn when forcing and take you very
close to the top and then go quiet again so not strictly progressive. It awards
extra hot numbers when the feature starts and if it feels like rolling over for
an easy jp then it will start with 8 hot numbers. In my experience it is best
just to hi-lo in the usual manner. I have seen it lose on this board so it is
NOT an invincible mode. I would go for the top feature as I don't believe
taking the straight £25 is likely to start a streak.
