We spent 2 days playing through 100 bonuses for our readers – this is the result
White Rabbit was released in late 2017 and was the first slot from Big Time Gaming using the Feature Drop option. A few days ago, we did a 100 bonus test round with Big Time Gaming’s most recent slot, Extra Chilli, which is also the second slot in their catalog with a buy-a-bonus feature. You might want to check it out if you haven’t already.
In White Rabbit, the price for a bonus is 100 times the stake, [math class]so at €1 bet the cost of the bonus will be €100[/math class].
White Rabbit became an instant success and while the Feature Drop option raised concerns in regard to gambling responsibility amongst some players, it’s popularity cannot be denied. Big Time Gaming is however not the only game provider to offer such an option and other providers, such as WMS, have implemented the same kind of feature on some of their games, many years prior to BTG.
Our goal was to buy 100 bonuses, at €1 stake for a cost of €100 per bonus, to see what the result would be. This was done in fun mode and as most of you know by now, fun mode is required by licens regulators to play exactly the same as it would in real money mode. For a game provider to increase RTP and wins in fun mode would be concidered a serious violation and such game provider would risk it’s whole operation and reputation. In fact, a game provider called GameArt did this not too long ago and had to watch in shame as Videoslots and other operators stripped their casinos of all GameArt slots.
Please note that a game like White Rabbit is of VERY high volatility. This means that playing through 100 bonuses is not nearly enough to draw any definate conclusions about the game or it’s potential. A volatile game like this will in most cases pay out relatively small winnings in order to collect funds for the super huge jackpots, which of course are very rare. It’s simply the nature of the beast.
This test run was done just for fun and out of curiosity, but it also goes to show how incredibly lucky you have to be to hit those big wins.
When it comes to the winnings, people appear to have different ways of calculating the results. While some are of the opinion that the bet size in this case should be regarded as €1, others argue that the bet size is the cost of the bonus, which in our case is €100. For this test we have calculated xbet winnings based on a €1 stake.
If you’re playing with bonus funds it is very important to consult with customer support as you may be in breach of bonus terms buying the bonus.
White Rabbit Statistics
So let’s get down to the stats then…
Out of the 100 bonuses played:
- 25 (1 out of 4 bonuses) resulted in a profit compared to the cost of the bonus
- 75 (3 out of 4 bonuses) resulted in a loss compared to the cost of the bonus
- The lowest amount of starting MegaWays was 3125
- The highest amount of starting MegaWays was 12348
- The highest amount of MegaWays reached in the bonus was 118800
- The average bonus win was 83,17x (€83,17)
- The lowest bonus win was 23,6x (€23,60)
- The higest bonus win was 448,5x (€448,50)
- The amount of bonuses with at least one retrigger was 4
The first run of the bonuses were played on a monday night and the second run was played the following day on tuesday morning. The first day we had an average bonus win of 69,7x and the second day an average bonus win of 96,5x. Quite a difference, so make sure to catch the game at the right time 😉
As can be seen in the spreadsheet, we had a very long run initially without a single retrigger! We never achieved a second retrigger either in a single bonus. The biggest win however happened in a bonus with no retriggers.
The starting amount of MegaWays seemed to make no big difference.
