Even though there are 243 ways to win, you might find that you go for several spins before landing any cash prizes. This can't be due to a shortage of wilds, as you see plenty of them on the reels every time you spin, but must be down to the volatility of the slot.
This isn't such a huge problem in standard play, where you can comfortably recoup any losses with a decent win, but it's bad news for an otherwise great bonus round. In fact, we've come out the other side of 10 free spins without a single win to our name.
If you've been playing for a long time in the hopes of triggering a bonus round, emerging with nothing to show for it is extremely frustrating. But, like it always is, this is all down to luck; with a possible 30x multiplier available in the bonus round, we know that it is at least possible to land some very big wins.
