Every games supplier has trademark features that it uses in some of its online pokies. Realtime Gaming is a leading software provider to Australian online casinos like Fair Go. You will find the Win-Win feature in a few of its best video pokies.
The Win-Win feature has come as a godsend to Australian online pokie players. Pokie players eagerly wait for the free spins bonus to be triggered, where they hope to make a huge winning. But the free spins feature does not guarantee that you will win big enough amounts to recover possible losses made in the regular spins. If you are unlucky then you may win only a paltry amount in the free spins and end your session at a net loss. Realtime Gaming has introduced the Win-Win feature in some of its online pokies in order to partly compensate the player for a bad run in the free spins.
In order to be eligible for the Win-Win feature, you must play the online pokie with all paylines activated. Expert players always follow this practice, so the Win-Win feature does not place an additional burden. This feature is automatically triggered at the end of the free spins bonus if the payouts won are 10 times the triggering bet or less.
The Win-Win feature awards compensation as follows. If the player does not receive any payout in the free spins then the Win-Win bonus is 200 times the triggering bet. If the free spins payout is less than or equal to 2 times the triggering bet then Win-Win bonus is 20 times the triggering bet. If the free spins payout is more than 2 times but less than or equal to 5 times the triggering bet then the Win-Win bonus is 10 times the triggering bet. If the free spins payout is more than 5 times but less than or equal to 10 times the triggering bet then the Win-Win bonus is 5 times the triggering bet. The player also retains the amount won in the free spins.
Some of the Realtime Gaming online pokies with the Win-Win feature are Basketbull, Mice Dice, Megasaur and Hockey Hero. Basketbull has a basketball theme and Hockey hero is based on ice hockey. Though these are not typical Australian sports, the pokies are popular. Megasaur has the popular dinosaur theme. Mice Dice is based on a casino that is run by mice for the mice.
