Realtime Gaming (RTG) is a software provider that does not tinker with its set pattern of online slots too much. But once in a while it does introduce an innovative feature, which is incorporated into its set pattern and becomes a regular feature in subsequent slot games. The Win-Win feature is an example.
The Win-Win feature fulfills a vital need in online slots games. Regular slots players will know that usually they tend to lose money in the regular spins. But when the free spins bonus is activated they recoup their losses and make a net winning. This is because in the free spins bonus they do not have to place wagers but are entitled to the payouts. However, the free spins are not triggered frequently. Usually players would need to get three scatter symbols anywhere on the reels to activate the free spins. Sometimes the conditions are more stringent. Hence the free spins bonus is not a frequent occurrence.
The free spins produce random results like the normal spins. Therefore, though the payouts are earned without wagering additional amounts it is not guaranteed that payouts will accrue. If the online slots player wins a minuscule amount he will be sorely disappointed. RTG has introduced the Win-Win feature with the objective of providing some comfort in situations like this by compensating the player with some additional payouts.
The RTG Win-Win feature works in the following manner. Up front it must be stated that the Win-Win feature requires the player to wager with all paylines activated. Most players follow this practice any way, so the Win-Win feature does not place an additional burden. This feature is automatically triggered at the end of the free spins bonus round if the payouts in that round are 10 times the triggering bet or less. The initial trigger win is not included in this.
The compensation is provided in the following manner. If the player does not receive any payout in the free spins bonus then he gets a bonus award of 200 times the triggering bet in the Win-Win feature. If the player receives a payout in the free spins bonus that is less than or equal to 2 times the triggering bet then he gets a bonus award of 20 times the triggering bet in the Win-Win feature. If the player receives a payout in the free spins bonus that is more than 2 times but less than or equal to 5 times the triggering bet then he gets a bonus award of 10 times the triggering bet in the Win-Win feature. If the player receives a payout in the free spins bonus that is more than 5 times but less than or equal to 10 times the triggering bet then he gets a bonus award of 5 times the triggering bet in the Win-Win feature. In each case the player retains the payouts received in the free spins bonus round.
Hockey Hero was one of the first RTG slots to introduce this Win-Win feature. It is a 25 payline slot with a fixed 1 coin wager per payline and therefore the required triggering bet is 25 coins. Hence the Win-Win Feature will come into play only if the payout in the free spins is 250 coins or less. In this game the free spins can be aborted prematurely if two or more clock symbols appear in the same spin. Hence the Win-Win feature is more than welcome in this slot game.
