Top Chair Wins
We’ve all been there; maybe two or three hours into a grinding session, we’ve got our game of choice on auto spin and find we need to take a quick trip to the bathroom. It doesn’t seem worth stopping the spins as you’ll only be a minute, and nothing much has been happening anyway. 99 times out of 100 you’ll come back to a slightly depleted balance – or maybe you’ve had a little win to keep you ticking over. But it’s the other 1% we’re concentrating on today; those times when you come back, and your chair has taken over proceedings and is doing a hell of a lot better than you were. It’s time to pay homage to some of those special chairs who turned their owners sessions around, successfully manning the fort whilst their owners made some coffee or made that emergency dash to the bathroom.
NickSlots playing Wild Turkey (NetEnt)
First up we have CasinoGrounds veteran NickSlots streaming back in 2017 playing NetEnt’s 2013 classic, Wild Turkey at £2 a spin. We start the clip just as Nick announces “Right, I’m goin’ for a p*ss, I’ll be right back.” On the very next spin after Nick leaves his chair three scatters drop to trigger the free spins bonus round.
Just three spins in and double wilds land on reels 1 and 3, as well as a full reel wild on reel 5. These wilds connect with a couple of high paying Turkey symbols for a £162.50 win. As Nick arrives back at his chair shortly after, he has to double take at the screen before realising that he’s in a bonus round and that his chair has already earned him £178. At least Nick is man enough to realise the problem as he says, “The problem’s me, let’s leave the f**kin’ chair in charge” and he does just that, leaning over his lucky chair as the round continues. Plenty of medium wins roll in as the spins continue, including a £60 win with a couple more full-length wilds and 10’s, and another big win of £168 with Turkeys.
By the time the bonus round is over, NickSlots chair had played 49 free spins, having earned 34 extra spins during the round, and won a total of £479, 240x his original bet size. As Nick says himself during the bonus round, “All hail the chair”.
Takethehit playing Reactoonz (Play’n GO)
Another CasinoGrounds streamer’s chair is up next as there is no sign whatsoever of Takeahit when the Gargantoon is released to work his magic during this round of cascades in Play’n GO’s Reactoonz. Playing at €0.40 a spin, Takeahit’s chair oversees the 3x3 wild monster drop in for a win, split into two 2x2 wilds for more wins, before finally splitting into 9 single wild symbols which facilitates a massive win of €300. In total the Gargantoon Drop paid out €320.70, equal to 802x the bet size. As Takeahit didn’t even appear at any point during proceedings, I think we can notch this one up 100% to the chair. Good work chair!
OmegaSlots playing Razor Shark (Push Gaming)
In this next clip German streamer OmegaSlots may have only been away from his chair a short while, but it only took a couple of base game spins for Herr Chair to bring home a banger of a win. In Razor Shark there is a feature called ‘Razor Reveal’ which turns the game’s ‘Mystery Stacks’ of seaweed into Golden Sharks. The Sharks then turn into gold coins, each of which reveals a win multiplier. Usually the coins reveal 1x and 2x amounts, if you’re lucky you might get a 25x, 50x, or even a 100x. It is extraordinarily rare, however, to land the maximum 2,500x coin. This is exactly what OmegaSlots chair was able to do here after a rare base game Razor Reveal revealed just 5 coins. An ecstatic OmegaSlots arrives just as the massive win is racking up. The humble chair says nothing, and lets his master take all the praise for this €1,256,50 (2,513x) win from a €0.50 bet.
MitaaSpins playing Queen of Riches (Big Time Gaming)
Next up with have the chair of Dutch twitch streamer, Mitaaspins playing Big Time Gaming’s Queen of Riches Megaways™ at €0.40 a spin. Much like OmegaSlots, Mitaaspins probably wasn’t expecting much to happen during a couple of base game spins. Also, like OmegaSlots he was proved very much wrong. In one mega spin, a single Eye of Horus symbol on reel 1 is joined by 5 full reels of 5 Eye of Horus symbols. Eye of Horus is one of the higher paying symbols in this game and with 3,125 ways to win the Dutch chair turned Mitaaspins €0.40 stake into a tasty €2,187.50 (5,469x) win. As the win starts to count up and the celebratory music begins to play, we hear a panicked Mitaaspins charging back to his beloved chair and when he sees what has happened, he blurts out a “What the f*k is happening?” before descending into some wild celebrations. I hope he gave his chair a good polish after that one!
Wootkai playing Dead or Alive (NetEnt)
This huge win came courtesy of the chair of twitch streamer Wootkai, and one of our favourite ever slots, NetEnt’s baddass cowboy gunslinger themed Dead or Alive. Unfortunately, Wootkai would appear to be missing in action throughout, although he was kind enough to post this March 2019 win in the CasinoGrounds forum for us all to enjoy. Now this is a chair worth watching as he hits multiple wilds during the free spins round to rack up some serious cheddar. Not only that but it would appear that this particular chair is able to talk as he chats with (presumably), another chair friend throughout proceedings! Having filled row 1 with wilds the chair is awarded an additional 5 spins to his initial 10. Furthermore, 3 wilds on the second row and another 2 on the third row combine to issue some spectacular wins. In total this absent streamer won himself €8,152.65 from a €1.35 bet, a 6039x stake haul. And once again, it was all down to his sharp-shooting chair!
