Bad run of Bonus rounds.

Anyone else had a run this bad?!I am not kidding I am close to 60 consecutive bonus rounds now across both Microgaming and Netnet and not a single one of them has paid more than x100 stake the average is about x 20
once my withdrawal comes on Tuesday I will stick to sports betting, that kind of run is demoralising.

No it's nothing new I'm afraid, bonus rounds are terrible at the moment for Notent and Microlaming, at least judging by my playing sessions over the last couple of years or so. I cannot speak for other software providers as I tend to stick to these two.

Getting anything over 100x is like the second coming of Christ, it's actually getting to the stage where the only worthwhile slot worth playing is DOA as this is the only game capable of providing playtime and mammoth bonus rounds.

The other games all seem to be fillers!

Yep I triggered 9 Bonus rounds at Betspin in 300 spins on Dead or Alive mostly x10 I have prob had close to 30 bonus rounds in a row on DOA biggest bonus round around x40 the rest very low paying.
never had 5 scatters in thousands of spins no full wild line..just terrible, you're right x100 is the new x1000! I have often wondered why the Microgaming logo looks similar to the old Mates Condom logo from the 1990's...

30 bonus rounds on DoA is nothing, wild lines pay huge, as does 5 scatters, and its known as one of the highest variance slots going, if not the highest, those screenshots you see in the winners screenshot / over 1000/3000x threads are there because of that, and id wager most of the repeat posters go on 10, 20 hell even 30k spins without seeing the wild lines, i read a post earlier about a dude who had 2x1000x stake wins in the space of 2 weeks, and now read this. i don't think theirs an agenda on slots, you just need that lucky bonus round to change your mind.

Yup I guess I do, I have noticed the big hits I don't expect to hit big every Bonus round but close to 60 without even hitting over x100...across 2 different platforms...I have played the Dark Knight for a while now I have for sure had over 50 Bonus rounds on that
none have ever paid over x100 the stake that's a lot of spins including the extra ones from the Joker.

hahaha I cannot seem to find the old mates logo, from the mid 1990's but I can remember it was very very similar to the Microgaming logo.


Found it..knew I was right I have a very very long memory for everything.

I have to agree with this, for me netent as been a complete disaster if your fortunate enough to trigger any bonus on this game platform, im or was a big fan of jatbs but the bonus here has been awful....dosn't matter how many chests i get 3 or 4 ( never had five yet ) pays a pittance. my last 4 chest bonus payed £2.70 on a £1.00 spin.......go figure

The amount of chests you get on JATB doesn't impact how much you'll win on the feature as they pay nothing. My highest ever win on JATB just under 1025x bet was with 3 treasure chests I just happened to get keys really quickly and it soon was on harps (quite a few of them). The game requires patience that's all and lots of it but at times I get really annoyed at this game as much as I love it!

However the really odd thing is this only took first feature within about 30 spins. I'd just won £80 on fruit case and switched to jack at a far too cautious 20p a spin so I won £251 if I'd been that wee bit braver could have had £750-1,250. If I remember right though I'd been on losing run for ages and had got through a playthrough with profit that's why I was so careful. You're luck has to change sooner or later. :thumbsup:

at least you got a win on jatbs but if you had increased your stake my feeling is that you would have got jack......so why is it when your choice of slot is paying well the minute you up your stake........it stops the wins............funny that isnt it......and its supposed to be random.......yea my arse....

All of my favourites (across MG and Netent about 25 games) are deader than dead and have been for weeks now :(

I have been playing DOA and Immortal Romance as my main 2 games for years now and until recently they've behaved like a 'random slot' should in that some days I win, some I lose and some I break even.

Now it is just a case of 'Giz ya balance n fuck off Jon' more fool me for doing it :p

The enjoyment is gone, there is no longer the 'I might win, or this feature could be a cracker' anymore, I find myself saying over n over 'Can't get 2 scatters never mind 3' or if I do fluke a feature (which is harder each deposit it seems) it pays peanuts and the DOA wanted posters disappear up the games arse!

The only thing I would disagree with is the 2 scatters, i seem to get them all the ime on DOA, mostly in first 2 reels but very rarely fill the third scatter, and when I do its a bust out of a bonus, usually only a handful of coins. And even if I get 2 or 3 posters, they fall in a way that means they serve no purpose and dont contribute to any wins, very frustrating.

nothing new for doa, it takes thousands of spins just to get 5 extra spins let alone a wildline

I'm currently on a horrendous run at DoA and Reel Steal. These aren't from just a few sessions, but over a period of 5-6 weeks where I dabbled a bit at several casinos.

DoA: 6003 spins, 38 free spins rounds, NO win over 100xbet
Reel Steal: 3141 spins, 16 free spins rounds, NO win over 100xbet

The best win overall in either game during this time is approximately 90xbet that I got at DoA free spins round. The base game in either one has been absolute s**t.

Just goes to show that it is pointless to chase anything with these high variance monsters. By the time you get that 1000xbet hit, you are easily down the hole 2000xbet or more. (Unless you're Nate or Blathaon, that is :p)

I have stopped playing reel steal altogether and I would not recommend anyone to heavily play this slot because the variance is really brutal.

Was playing it as my main game for about 3 weeks in April and I have had only one winning session out of at least 15-20. There are periods in the game where you will hit something nice in the base game to bring your balance to where you started or even ahead but ultimately after even something like a x20 win its always a long period of dead spins, x1 wins or 'you almost had that x100 win if the reel lined up' repeatedly. I have got the bonus round at least 20 times in this period and have had only one decent one where I won between x200 and x300 my bet.

In that 3-4 week span I never achieved any picture symbol 5OAK with a wild symbol in either base game or bonus round (closest was 4OAK girl symbol with wild). Must have done at least 5000 spins over that period. I have quit playing reel steal now - variance is too brutal despite the fact you can spin at 0.09p and bonus rounds are more of the same.

Ironically the only time I have done quite well in reel steal was when I played it for the very first time, got a 5OAK low ranking picture symbol with wild and had a good bonus round.

Will stick to DOA (even though its kind of boring) because it gives better play time and big wins are actually achievable

The games you are playing (high variance) are effecting your chances of x100 IMHO.
If your goal is "only" x100, you should play lower variance games.

My x100+ wins in April, Netent:
Eggomatic x 3 different wins over x100.
Tornado Farm Escape
Aliens
Wishmaster (x1015!)

My last 5 wins over x100 on MG:
Finer Reels of Life (High variance = NOT recommended)
Loaded
Glory of Rome
Break Away
The Osbournes
