It could be my imagination and I might of mentioned this before, but it always seems
like I build my bankroll at 3Dice close to a certain amount ($200) and then BAM! Things
begin to go sour, fast.

It's as if the slots are taunting me and saying "Oh, your approaching $200, well F.U.!
lets see you get past it now, jackass!"

You know, I may of figured it out.. For years I've seen people post and say that they lose
very quickly at 3Dice. I think it has something to do with all those dead spins that occur during
play. It can literally go on until your bankroll dries out. Hence feeling like you busted out very quickly.

I was playing the new Scatterville Skunks slot recently. 90 cents a spin trying to achieve
those 3 damn referees. Forget it. I had a better chance of sticking my hand up a skunks ass and
finding a bottle of perfume!

But something about those addicting slots that 3Dice has to offer just makes me come back for
more.. That and their famous customer service. 3Dice is great and I'll always be a depositing customer.
Even though I get my ass handed to me more often than at any other online casino :p

Has anybody else noticed a "cap" of winnings after a certain amount at 3Dice? Or am I losing my mind?

No, but I did notice it at another casino and closed my account. I was not my imagination. It was literally EVERY time I played. (and I played a lot) Can I still be called a "tin foil hat wearer" if I closed that account?


3Dice can suck up your money FAST!!! Sunday I deposited $60 and it was gone in 30 minutes or less of playing $0.30 bets.

Then yesterday I deposited $90 and hit 2 royal flushes (.50 bet for $500, 2.50 bet for $2,500, very different times of the day, not back to back) and moolah kept giving me either of the bottom 2 cannons on the bonus round. I couldn't lose. This is VERY ODD for me, I am usually very unlucky. It's actually freaking me out that I won, haha.

isnt that part of gambling ? 3dice is a nice place to play at , i get stuck a fair few times aswell , but then you have days were you have great playtime , i find the micro gaming far more frustrating than 3dice on terms of getting upto 200 quid then getting rinsed of cash it happens far far more than 3dice.

problem ive found is that i dont play 3dice all the time i should play there more ive had some great sessions there but i realy dont like the tier on you have to play a fair ammount or you go down the stars pretty quickly on one day im at silver the next im back to bronze , perhaqps if i play a couple of times this may sort it . but when there cold at 3dice there ice cold so doesnt warrant a couple of deposits i just stay clear switch off & come back another day , but one thing is for sure there great cs & good payout times )

You guys above (and me! re. my worst ever TSII experience thread) are all foil hatters. There is no cap on winnings. The slots are random. No patterns, no predictability or 'glass ceilings' of attainment.:D

I get the feeling of a cap a lot too.

I believe it has to do with a players own playing patterns. I think as you approach your self-imagined cap you start to play differently, maybe bouncing around from slot to slot more or less often or playing more or less conservatively.

There is also the fact that slots in particular and all casino games in general are designed for the casino to win the vast majority of the time.

Once I have been over 200€ on 3dice .when I hit 200 from tutankhamon. Then I continued to arctic ice with 250€ bankroll. 1€ bet. It was gona in less then 15 minutes. Not once over 10xbet, propably once over 5xbet win, a few 2-3x wins. Not once a feature. That was frustraiting.. really. :D.

That's the same conversation I had with support. No matter what I did my balance wasn't going past a certain point. Then it was like a pattern of set loses followed by a few wins. I could climb back to that peak point. But would never cross it and then a similar set pattern of loses would occur. This went on for quite a few times doing that session. And several deposits. I closed my account afterwards.

Not just 3Dice, almost everywhere. And I do think most of it is down to a combo of The House Edge and our own betting styles.

Realistically, a 100x win is a good win, and if we are betting 25 cents, that's 25 dollars. Which is entirely appropriate for a $50 deposit. But it takes 9 of them in a row and we won't quite be at $200. Sure, we can get the big hits, you get 800x first quarter bet, you are at your $200. But the natural is to slide down and down, with a few peaks and troughs along the way hopefully.

If you raise your bet, you might get lucky. But more often than not, you don't. More often than not, you don't get much above start balance from the get go, and if you look at every balance increase as the start of a new session, you begin to see why there is that ceiling.

The problem isn't a ceiling at 3Dice, it's that it's quite unlikely you'll end up with double your deposit to begin with, and less likely to end up with 4x your deposit, and even less likely to end up with 10x your deposit.

Every time you play, every spin you take, it's more likely you will have less money than before you spun.

It's a wonder we ever have sessions that soar, but they do happen infrequently.

And that is why we play slots.

Artic is probably the most all or nothing slot 3Dice has IMO. Recently saw a member win around 800 on a 20 cent bet. I haven't kissed the Queen yet myself, not even in tourney mode.

lol I just went through a recent spate of winning a certain amount and then losing it all again. Not at 3Dice though, but still I know how it feels. It's just gambling though - next time I'll remember and cash out when things start heading downhill. Maybe. :oops:

What's that "ceiling" you all speak off ? I've only seen the floor for the last 100+ deposits, and thought for a while, that I was actually in the basement ;)

Well, to answer the question in the opening post, you are mostly going to lose - most of the time.

I personally think 3Dice is the fairest of ALL online casinos - at least the ones I've played. No weird mid-session disconnects, no funny bonus terms, payouts as fast as anyone else (except maybe 32Red), even for Americans - big wins can come at ANY moment.

I don't have any problems with 3Dice from a fairness/randomness perspective, (and I certainly don't think there are any 'caps' in place), I do have a problem with some of the pay structures on the slots (Fortune Falls for example, which it's basically impossible to win on if you don't get a 5 scatters bonus, and outside of that is just a bankroll killer), but that's an entirely different matter.

I played 3Dice pretty heavily last year and eventually walked away, but not because I thought anything was 'wrong' - I just went a bit mental chasing those aforementioned 5 scatters on Fortune Falls, had a bit of a bad run overall, and played some daft bets on roulette as well, including spunking away all my rainy day funds - which left me a bit disheartened with the whole place. And then of course, whilst I was on my break I got the regular emails as my VIP status declined because I wasn't playing, and that combined with knowing I had £125 of rainy day funds outstanding should I get to make a withdrawal anyway, put me on what I figured was probably a permanent vacation.

Well, having not played there since last July or so, I got a 'welcome back' bonus promotional email a few days ago, which was a 100% match on a £100 deposit with a 10xD+B WR, plus an offer to reinstate my VIP status to its highest previous level.

I decided to have a go at that, because I'd missed their slots and the friendly chat, and I knew there were three new slots to play as well. I figured the bonus offer was pretty good, and if I could get my rainy day funds cleared with it I'd be happy, and it'd give me a fresh start with my restored VIP status.

Well, the session went a lot better than that, I played a fair whack through the three new slots (1000-1500+ spins on each), and also on my old favourites, Super Suits +, Payola, Moolah, Double Dough and so on.

Peaked at around £440, made wagering at £345, cleared my rainy day funds, withdrew £200 which was in my Neteller account inside of four hours (not bad for a Saturday!), and left £20 in there to play on with. (Some screenshots are in the winners screenshots thread.)

The slots I'd played in the past all 'felt' exactly the same as they always did, obviously I have nothing to benchmark the new ones against.

In summary, 3Dice feels as random and fair as any other trusted software to me, as an avowed low roller who rarely ventures above a penny or two per line (maybe three!), I literally put tens and hundreds of thousands of spins through any software that I get involved with, and I have no qualms about 3Dice's randomness or fairness whatsoever.

If you play random slots for long enough, YOU WILL SEE very freaky behaviour sometimes. We like the randomly freaky good, we don't like the randomly freaky bad - but it's all going to happen somewhere along the line. I've had both good and bad runs at 3Dice, but as someone who's really ragged the arse out of pretty much all the main softwares, I've never seen anything that's struck me as out of the ordinary or dodgy.

I'm happy to have 3Dice back on my 'casino to play at' list, and I'll repeat what I've said before, it shouldn't just be considered a casino for USA folks who have very little choice with where to play, I think it has a lot to offer all players. (Plus, the payout times to Neteller and customer support kick a good many accredited casinos into the long grass.)

Who knows what the future of online gambling will bring, but I think some folks get a little bit of the old rose-tinted glasses going on with memories of Microgaming in the past and suchlike - but make no mistake, any software in the world will kick your ass down the street on a bad day, and make you a pile of cash on a good day. 3Dice is no different from anywhere else in that regard.

Hmmm..this sounds odd to me. So they reinstate a player who hasn't been there for almost a year to their previous level, but for the players who play there, their level goes down, when depositing. :what:

Don't get me wrong I love me some 3Dice, had a few huge hits in the last month or so...but that seems a little "off" to give someone that honor. When depositing players don't get this treatment. When I came back after finally finding a way to deposit, I started off as a "player" again, and had to work my way up.

Unless I misunderstood. (which is entirely possible :laugh: )

No it is as it sounds, and you haven't misunderstood.

I suppose it's basically down to the casino to offer bonuses and promotions in whatever form they wish if they think it'll get them a player back.

Some of the offers I've had from certain MG casinos since I basically quit the software a year ago have been incredibly good, probably better than they'd ever offer a regular depositing player who didn't have high VIP status - but that's just the way these things go, they're entirely discretionary from the casino's perspective.

I don't know what metrics 3Dice base these offers on and how 'personalised' the offer was, but I'd guess not very since it was all about dollars and not pounds when talking about the bonus itself, so it clearly wasn't regionalised for a UK player.

From the casino's perspective I guess they're basically saying 'this guy isn't coming back unless we chuck a decent offer his way', I hadn't played there for nine months or so prior to receiving the offer, and as it happened it did address one of my main problems I had with me taking a break from the software, which is that my VIP status dwindled to nothing whilst I was on that break, which negatively impacted my desire to return there as a player.

For the record I found 3Dice's loyalty system a little bit harsh even when I was a regular player there, because if you eased off for a bit your loyalty status would either stall or start to decline, but ultimately they are a business who need to turn a profit to survive, and since they're serving the US market I guess they have to take on all kinds of extra hassles, risks, and costs that casinos such as Jackpot Party for example, who operate entirely in a 'white zone', simply don't have to face.

Looks like the artifacting problem with the Intel-HD integrated chipset, it happened on the kitchen laptop but seems to have been much improved with recent driver updates.

You can also try this:

On your desktop, locate "3Dice Casino" icon, right click and choose
properties.
Click in the box labeled 'Target' (it should read something like "C:\Program
Files\3Dice Casino\3Dice.exe")
Hit the 'End' key to make sure you don't over type whats there already, then
type <SPACE> <DASH> jdib, so the end result looks like this :

"C:\Program Files\3Dice Casino\3Dice.exe" -jdib

(so new stuff added after double quotes and make sure you have a space between closing quote and -jdib)

Enzo is smart...He knows exactly what he is doing. :cool: After all the luck, reviews and screen shots coming from Chopley. Makes me want to reopen on my account and make a deposit. :rolleyes:

You dreadful cynics!

I just report honestly as I find things, anyone who watched my YouTube channel will know I'm never more than a few seconds away from hurling abuse towards anything I don't like or feel is unfair :)
