Since Spin On it, Impulse have made it
harder to 'rip' red lines for jackpots
out of their machines. Wildfire is a
prime example and whilst not that tight
so is Royal Roulette So the idea of
quick steals from these machines is not
that feasible, most of the easily
reachable features are shite. In other
words, the reward from this machine is
punting for the streak.
This is typically achieved from filling
the 'number' trail with numbers on the
reels during reel play - as ever there
is a bonus position at 4 that helps this
process. The other way in is a reel win.
Positive Signs from Reels
Full machine (imperative!), trails
costing under £4. Lots of let em spins
and single reel holds for feature entry.
Bonus 4's always giving the feature.
Pear wins spinning in.
Positive Signs from Feature
Funny machine this, in that unless it is
completely battered it will always give
a good range of gambling up to the
middle of the stacks. So not always that
easy to judge in terms of how far away
the streak is, but still enjoyable.
Extra Lives are a good sign...
Lots of ACES, KINGS, TWOS and successful
gambles on 4's and 9's.
Frequently climbing up the feature stack
until the block before WINNING STREAK.
The main feature is based around two
HI-LO reels that use CARDS to represent
numbers. Each successful gamble spins a
Roulette style wheel in the centre board
which has an inner ring and an outer
ring of items. These items are reel
blasts, nudges, multi-adds etc... and
streak coins (GOLD, SILVER and BRONZE).
A successful gamble on the HI-LO also
climbs the feature or money stack
depending on the HI-LO reel used.
The aim of
the feature is to quite simply climb out
either stack for the JP or WINNING
STREAK or be awarded 3 streak coins.
The BRONZE streak pays around £9
The SILVER streak pays around £10 - £19
The GOLD streak pays £25 and can
continue on credit breaks.
Incidentally, the WINNING STREAK at the
top of the feature stack awards the GOLD
There are also 3 Bonus Dice to collect,
obtaining all 3 opens the inner ring.
12 = Guaranteed Low
2 = Guaranteed Hi
Ace = No Lose
There is a platinum IMPULSE logo on one
of the reel - this is NOT a JP. It
accesses the platinum features on the
machine which are not that good and kind
of equivalent to the boxes found on Bell
The machine does have an IM where the
logo flashes upon feature entry. The IM
is part of the streak.
This machine definitely has a streak, a
streak that can be forced when the
machine is full and has recovered from
the last streak! The streak is basically
a run of Invincible boards after a £25
Gold Streak - on occasion the Gold
Streak will do £50 as part of a streak.
The usual streak amount is £75 - £100
and more often that not £100, sometimes
more. Afterplay on this is in the region
on v7 - £15, sometimes less.
To get the streak you simply have to
punt for the 3 Gold Coins to activate
the Gold streak. Do this by gambling up
the FEATURE stack only, do NOT play for
the £25 CASH. You will find the machine
gets better during the force and if
playing well to start you should find
yourself in good profit. No matter how
well it plays only push for the Gold
Streak or the Winning Streak feature if
the gamble wins, do NOT take reel blasts
or red lines if offered.
During the punt you will always gamble
to the feature below winning streak and
lose, this will occur until the streak
is achieved. Once you have the first
Gold Streak (usually £25) play for the
next trail. If streaking the trail will
be an IM and the logo will flash, simply
gamble out the feature stack. The next 2
trails should be the IM's with each
streak producing £25. If one streak does
£50 then this will reduce the amount of
IM's from say 3 to 2.
After you get £100 or £75 play the next
trail to see if anything happens, if it
is not an IM and on say a 4 and 5 on the
HI-LO and dies quickly then the streak
is over - but be sure to try the next
trail for afters.
Afters can be in the form of a BRONZE or
SILVER streak, a cash win of say £5+ or
the feature SUPER KNOCKOUTS. Just get
what you can before leaving the machine.
JP, IM, IM, IM
JP, IM, IM
Can show a good profit of £40 - £60
depending on condition. If played well
and in cycle can be a good earner.
