The Ugga Bugga slots game can be found at Playtech casinos. Playtech do not publish the house edge of their games, however several established Playtech casinos have started releasing this information and on the CasinoMeister forum, the Boyle Casino Manager confirmed that Playtech slots games are not configurable at the operators end. As such, it is possible to identify that the house edge of Ugga Bugga however, due to the nature of the game Ugga Booga has several possible house edge values; playing max coins using the optimal strategy the house edge is 0.93%, playing less than max coins with optimal strategy the house edge is 1.26%, however unlike Tropic Reels there does not appear to be any information on the average skill level player’s house edge.
A fantastic slots/strategy combination.
Ugga Bugga had 3 reels, 10 paylines and you can bet one coin on each of the paylines.
The ‘Wild’ symbol is wild.
There is only one bonus feature when playing Ugga Bugga. When you first hit the spin button, only the bottom set of reels in the left hand column is spun. You are then given the option to hold certain symbols, any symbols you hold on the first set of reels will be held on all ten sets of reels. When you next hit the spin button all ten sets of reels will spin with the symbols you selected held in place. This ability to pick and choose which symbols are discarded and which are held means that this game is strategy based and as such there is a mathematically correct decision with any given set of symbols. Unfortunately at the present time we are unaware of the optimal strategy.
What a fantastic game! Unfortunately unlike Tropic Reels, Ugga Bugga doesn’t provide information on the average strategy house edge, but given that game is very similar to Tropic Reels it is likely that the house edge could be close to that of Tropic Reels and as the gameplay is very similar and fair guess would be around 3%. Remember to always play max coins!
