    I've also noticed that the cascades don't pay out as much.

    Can't say I've seen that. Same game play.

    As previously noted cascades increase for each sequential drop. To get the highest payouts on cascades you will need to bet the max. amount of $500K.

    zagnut84  Sorry for my delay in response. I notice earlier that you asked about strategies for winning SportsBook. Most SportsBook strategies are grounded in the Kelly Formula. So for starters, you should do all you can to familiarize yourself with the Kelly Formula, and how to wield it. You can start your education here:

    See, I noticed earlier that you mentioned that SportsBook has "no gameplay". Oh it very much has gameplay, just not the kind gameplay you normally think of when you hear that word. It's more about calculating probabilities and betting the correct amount based on the odds. It's a great game for an accountant like me, and if you get really good at it, you can make some serious money in real life. Here's an article about a guy who turned $50 into $1.1 million in real life:

    Doesn't sound boring to me. 😉

    Hey everyone! Been a while since I've posted anything so here is an update: The below puzzle (Fat Hourglass) is arguably the best if you can manage to setup the scenario of the Protecting Power up in either bottom left or right hand corners. I've ridden this coin wave for nearly 1B coins (that's right billion with a 'B') in a single game. Keep in mind my other tips to make it work such as destroying "creeper gems" that appear at the top and are looking to crash the party. Good luck as always!

    All the maps are 9 x 9. Without any obstacles you'd have 81 squares. The more obstacles there are, the harder it becomes to finish challenges without clearing the board and avoid power ups. I ranked them here so you'll know which ones are worth playing and which ones will end up sending your coin total in the wrong direction.

    EDIT:Just saw Zagnut's last post...1B?!?! That's insane. So I guess my theory was incorrect but Zagnut mentioned just going for square shaped boards without being specific. At least with my post we can see all the maps at once and Zagnut will come back to tell what other ones besides the hour glass are worth playing!

    Cheers.

    Buzzed Lightyear I feel like there has to be a mathematical approach to Emerald City. Do you play that at all?

    HavokMega,Thank you for your note. I mention early in my posts about avoiding weird shapes and my Advanced Tip #9 overviews my best boards but I don't mention anything about "Playable" or the "Don't Play These" boards so I will here now..

    I generally agree with your assessment, however, I'd personally move the Fat Hourglass to the Playable category based on my last post in certain circumstances (as noted). Also I'd move Burning Man to "Playable" as well. Both have their usefulness and can win on them. I would also move Four Square to "Best category" as it's mostly square and I've made some serious bank on it in the past. One more--- I'd move GR8 to "Don't Play" category. This is a recent change from my playing experience over time. For whatever reason because of the geometry just don't get very many cascade drops as the other square-like boards. So start avoiding that one. Hope that helps.

    Happy gaming to all you JOO players!

    The easiest way I found to win big at the horses is use big charms and bet 1 M each on all 6 horses to "show"  this way your guaranteed 3 winners.  On occasion the longshot comes thru.  sometimes if the odds are like 1 to 1.3 on the top 3 horses i bet a smaller amount as you dont win as much

    Comment/Observation # 5: Charm ESP.  If you use charms watch the reward you get for each move. You will notice that the amount of reward is determined by the number of cascade drops per single move. As in the example below I received millions of coins for around seven (7) sequential chaining cascades. The more you chain cascades the greater the reward.

    Note: It's "interesting" how the charms payout even before the drops are completed. This means CW knows the gems that will drop in advance. The board is pre-programmed perhaps as much as 10,000 gems before you even start!  Again, nothing is ever random in CW..

    Comment/Observation # 6: The CW Gods are Angry - Part 2  Speaking on the new aggressive game play from CW.... I've also noticed an increase in the Power Ups attempting cross fire moves. A cross fire move is when a Power up or set position themselves to not only kill your remaining brown squares but also set off a chain of other Power-ups; like setting off a stack of dominoes. So my tip is to remind everyone to get rid of the Power ups as so as they appear on the board with one exception: You are trying to create a protecting Power up situation or already have one in place.

    It's gotten a whole lot tougher out there folks but can still be done so don't get discouraged. I routinely get 1-2B daily from off and on game play.

    Jewels of Osiris hasn't been changed to make the power ups more aggressive.

    Since you work for CW I would say your response has bias. My comment comes from long term play experience. I doubt you've played this game as much as I have. Not to mention being an expert at other similar match games like Bejeweled and Chuzzles.

    Nothing personal here but CW has credibility issues. Sorry if I and others don't believe you. I see you closed this post. Censorship in action!

    Hey everyone--- started a new post. Just do a search in the general discussion area using the following search words, "How to win at CW and not pay a bunch of money. Play Jewels of Osiris - Part 2 ( The saga continues...)"

    Personally, Jewels of Osiris is my favorite of our games, and I've played it quite extensively in Vegas World, Casino World, and 7 Seas Casino.

    I checked with our teams on this, and it was confirmed there haven't been any changes to Jewels of Osiris in a long time. Thanks for your concern!
