    Do you mean Big 5 Safari and its clones? Game is 4 years old

    Based on the current progressive jackpot at 87% RTP, that is ***NOT*** a play in my neck of the woods.

    Good luck.

    I didn't want to name the game specifically since most of those who already play would know of what game I am speaking. There are thousands of games that are several years old, but the information is not widely disseminated. Ex Ap.. thank you for the response. In general, I only really usually go for the smallest progressive when it is at 3x reset or a good combination of the bottom 3, but I don't have all that much experience with the game and haven't gone for any of the top progressives.

    Good luck.

    Mickey and Ex-AP are both correct and agree, something you won’t hear everyday.��

    A few general comments:

    - when B5S came out, I got info from two separate groups that mapped the reels to discern the play. It was really close. It pretty much matched my initial but incomplete work on the game. RTPs were 87% to 92% for my neck of the woods.

    - I have a buddy that is a slot tech and he cannot give details but let’s me know that “changes” were made to slot machines. Again, he cannot tell me the exact changes except he had to work on that slot machines. There were two changes on B5S before that casino got rid of their B5S machines.

    - this is important and I’m positive aplowroller doesn’t get this point: games get changed over time. The best example is GE that went through at least 3 changes (coin drop rates were altered). So be careful playing old machines.

    - another point aplowroller doesn’t get is the information for the first version of the game when it was discovered to be beatable was HIGHLY DISSEMINATED in the public domain but you have to know where to find it! I just had a guy inbox me about a play so I had to provide detailed information in the public domain that he didn’t know existed.

    People who mapped out or worked on the first version are not going to work on subsequent versions which is why information on subsequent version is lacking.

    In summary, play old bonus games at your own risk.

    PS the lion is beatable at some progressive level but the lack of data prevented these people from arriving at a confidence interval. B5S is about “blackouts” so you had to get frequencies of a specific reel being a blackout, which is a lot of work.

    “ Blackout — An entire screen of identical winning symbols, with or without any wild symbols. Some machines pay a bonus for blackout wins.”

    I have only found one machine I thought was worth it. Progressives were ridiculously high. 4-5x reset I did well, but found out my friend took a beating from it the day before.

    You take a lot of brutal beatings in that game. I've run through 300 units before chasing the frickin' water buffalo. Sure I had winning plays but I didn't make a long term profit on the game so quit playing it.

    The meters are too slow and the value is stored in too many places. You can find them over 100% but its rare.
