February 2014 Featured Game report

27 Feb 2014

By Dan Podheiser
As I wrote at the beginning of the year, I've decided to "spice up" my Featured Game responsibilities for Casino City. I am now keeping track of my results for each week, and will provide monthly, quarterly and a final annual report at the end of the year.

As noted in my introductory story, my plan is to bet $1 of play money per line per spin, or as close to it as possible, until triggering the bonus round. This allows me to see the game in its entirety and write a comprehensive review.

In January, I played five games and made a total profit of $997 in 1 hour and 22 minutes of play. February, unfortunately, did not prove to be as successful.

I wrote four Featured Game reviews in February. The first game I played was Dolphin Cash at Slots Heaven. I hit the bonus round in just one minute on the 30-payline slot, but the $135 win from the bonus was not enough to give me an overall profit, and I ended up booking a $75 loss.

My second game was Builder Beaver at Club Player Casino, a 25-line slot. This game took me a whopping 37 minutes to finally hit the bonus round, the longest I've had to wait so far this year. And the results were not pretty. I lost $3,996 for the session, buoyed by a relatively despicable $32 win on the bonus. It just wasn’t my day.

Next I played Good Girl, Bad Girl at 7Red, and my bad luck continued. I lost $1,845 in just 16 minutes on the 15-line slot, as my $60 win in the bonus round was a pittance compared to what I had lost to get there.

The last game I played was South Park at BetVictor Casino, a 25-line slot with four different bonus rounds. This time, I booked my first and only win of the month, a $250 victory thanks to a $545 win in the Cartman bonus round.

Here are the final results and totals for the year:

February 2014 profit: -$5,666
Total 2014 profit: -$4,669

February 2014 time spent: 59 minutes
Total 2014 time spent: 2 hours, 21 minutes

February 2014 hourly rate: -$5,762.03/hour
Total 2014 hourly rate: -$1,986.81/hour
