We know you’ve all been asking yourselves the same question about Danger! High Voltage. Should you go with the 15 free spins or 7. Let’s settle this once and for all
If you’re a fan of casino streams you know the drill. Everytime a bonus is triggered on Danger! High Voltage, the chat goes crazy with every viewer trying to persuade the streamer to pick their favorite bonus. But does it really matter which one you pick?
Danger! High Voltage is a slot made by Big Time Gaming and was released in May, 2017. What has made the game so popular is the fact that there is massive potential in both main game and bonus, with a theoretical possibility to win over 20,000 times the stake. When triggering the bonus, players are faced with two choices:
High Voltage awards 15 free spins and involves a random multiplier reel that can go up to 66x. The bonus has potential to retrigger many times.
Gates of Hell awards 7 free spins and a random symbol is selected as a sticky wild (only on the 3 middle reels) for the duration of the bonus. This feature can retrigger a maximum of 3 times, awarding 3 extra free spins for each retrigger.
There is heavy debate whether one feature is better than the other and we all have our favorite. Some are of the opinin that the Gates bonus is over too fast and that its either hit or miss, and that the High Voltage bonus seems like a safer choice by at least awarding medium returns, almost like a win guarantee. This is why we conducted a little test here to see what the outcome would be playing 100 bonuses, 50 of each.
The test was carried out over the course of 3 days as it took a long time to trigger all the bonuses. It actually took us over 1 hour and 30 minutes of constant gameplay to trigger one of the bonuses which payed next to nothing.
The bonuses were collected while playing in demo mode and doing €5 bets. Demo mode is required by law and regulation to play with the same RTP and mathematical model as the real mode. With a lot of experience playing this slot, we could find nothing that raised any concerns regarding the legitimacy of the demo mode or anything that indicated foul play. Many times we busted out and had a lot of trouble triggering bonuses, which is why it took such a long time to conduct this test. Big Time Gaming is a provider that currently holds accredited status on Bigwinboard.com.
This is of course not a scientific test in any way and 100 features is not enough to draw any certain conclusions about anything so take it for what it is – a fun project!
If any game provider however wish to fund us to carry out tests like this on any of their games to further strenghten the legitimacy of these tests, then please contact us.

The average bonus win was almost the same on both bonuses (Gates 65x vs High Voltage 60x) when Gates dropped the 633x bomb in one of the last bonuses. This somewhat skewed the results a bit. This test was only carried out for fun and 100 bonuses is not enough to draw any significant conclusions, but for what it’s worth, this test points to the fact that it doesn’t make much difference which bonus one picks as they seem to pay about the same on average and they both have potential to hit big.
The biggest win we had during the test came in the main game however, with 3 multiplier reels resulting in a 691x win!
