What do you do?

[Post New]by award04 on Jan 21, 17 10:34 AM
What is your strategy when you are stranded in one location for a while? I am waiting for shipments. I have literally replayed all the games for extra coins (in the best levels to replay thread). I keep jumping around to other cities. I'd like to know what other people do.

Often I used my pile of travel vouchers to make a one day trip to one of the most recent cities. While there I don't spend any coins or power ups, just skipping side paths if they are hard and stopping at the monument if it needs resources I don't have.

I also replay levels, either in the city I'm blocked on (for resources) or my favorite resource levels in earlier cities so that I have a nice stockpile for either shipping or making greens.

I don't usually go back to earlier cities to try to make architect or master on more levels, but some other fishies do that.

I'm one of the fishies who goes back to make master and architect on more levels. I tend to go back and work on older cities and past quests if I'm waiting to ship over enough of a resource to build the next monument. And of course I watch the bonus video when I'm doing master levels.

Sometimes, right before you start the level there's a button saying 10% bonus beside the play button. Touch that, and watch the video and if you win the level you get an extra 1, 3 or 6 coins.

Really? I wonder how many features there are that are only available on mobile. What is the subject of those videos?

Basically? They're adverts.

Huh....I'm on mobile and have never encountered a bonus video.

I am one of the very few (if any) who plays the casino whIle chilling. It usually works out to about 200-300 coins in average play (wins and losses up and down for an accumulated lose of 250 coins) to win 500 coin jackpot (the triple purple gummy). So in the long run, it's a no brainer for me. Even if I lose 2000 coins in play, I'll get 3 jackpots in one day (1500) so it balances out.

I play on my iPad and have never seen a bonus video. I use my computer for the forums because as another poster said, the iPad is not good with the Bis Fish website.

Does anyone else have experience with the slot machine? I have not used it but assumed that the odds would not be better than Vegas which has never been good to me.

I play on my iPad too, but do use the forums on iPad. Safari and Firefox do not work well, but Dolphin works. I have to log in each time I upgrade iOS but other than that it almost always remembers my login for me. Firefox can't seem to remember it even when I've told it to do so. I rarely use safari.

I usually play the slot machine each day (only spend about 10 coins), I have only won the jackpot twice and I've been playing this game for well over 2 yrs. Odds are not in my favour, lol. I only bet 1 coin and if I'm feeling lucky I'll bet 4. Although I did read here a while ago where someone was winning the jackpot every 48 hrs. I don't know how he or she does it but I wish I had their luck!

I could be wrong, but I believe the videos for bonus points are only for those playing with Facebook.

A couple of days ago I went to Tokyo to get the treasure chest and the game took me to the slot machine area. So I decided to play after a really long time. My previous experience was not good, but this time I won the jackpot after a few minutes, on a bet of 10, so I got x3= 1500 coins, just like that! Couldn't believe my eyes! I placed bets for all 3 amounts several times, for a total of 150 coins, and won over 1700 in total! Needless to say I'm sure this was a one time thing and don't plan to return there any time soon. Would rather rest on my laurels!

Congrats Eli! I have hit the double zinger, hitting the purple 500 jackpot after a 4 coin bet, netting 1000 (coins/jackpot doubled) but I am too cheap/chicken to bet a 10er. I don't think I have ever laid down a 10 coin bet. So do quit a winner! That is as good as it gets! I did get my 1500 coins today, but it was 3 individual jackpots. I've been skunked for well over a week, so I was owed!
