Thank you!

Still I have one question: why it would be require to have both reCaptcha and Spammer Slapper installed? Or do you have kind of choice between these two services?

Also, in your opinion, which one is better?

Here you may also check our discussion regarding earlier version of reCaptcha add-on.

I quickly looked over my code, and I think you'll need both services. I'll make each service optional in a future release.

Anyway, this is a solution only for those who can't allow a coffee-price for an original premium add-on. Running a serious project, I personally would never plug-in 3rd party technologies from the external projects. So you don't have to worry a lot about it :) It's up to your own interest.

At Latvia, it is coffee-price, but in Vietnam it's big money ($0,5 per cup of coffee are luxury)

You won't find $0,5 per coffee here. In McDonalds, it's minimum $1, in all other bars and restaurants it's minimum of $2-$3, the good coffee, as the good add-on, is about $6. You must agree we can't work for Vietnam prices while living in the center of Eurasia ;)

reCaptcha is getting bad last months. They provide the code which even a human can't recognize. I often visit public download sites which offer reCaptcha to enter, but only after 5-10 refreshes the code image comes in a mode which I can decipher. Minibb has obviously a pleasure add-on comparing to that. Very easy to recognize and type. Not sure why it still works against spammers on my form, but it truly works. Free-in-a-mousetrap, well said Paul.

I know this thread old but I tried your recaptcha still can't get it to work. What all do you need as part of your server for you to be able to run recaptcha? like GD library. Any help or hints will be greatly appreciated.

If I understand it properly, Re-Captcha is about 3rd party service, so none of the local server requirements are involved.
You just need to follow the 3rd party solution about to modify some pieces of miniBB templates code, that's all.
GD library is only required if you run the original miniBB Captcha add-on (Captcha is not Re-Captcha, by the way).
