This is my pattern deposit lose deposits within minutes to the point of trolling this goes on especially worse mid month were it recoups bang on 29th-1st of a new month I’ll get around a quarter of losses back I’ve had enough it’s blatantly not fair or random don’t expect to win all the time but this just takes the piss another part of my reason in quitting is BTG games yes I’ve won big once on there slots but trust me there is something seriously unfair with there slots and since I’ve played there slots mostly exclusively minus the odd dead or alive or BOD my sessions are horrific since I started playing there slots when they have people like streamers winning daily on there slots to get mugs drawn in but the average Joe is just ripped off within minutes zero playtime most of the time then it will give you a small compensation and also something with there slots that just don’t feel right no this ain’t sour grapes i just have had enough of the blatant change of some of there games which of course they deny .then you have the casinos ripping people off left right and centre with over the top sow withholding withdrawls power hungry and still money grabbing makes me sick. Quitting slots and the forum today and joining Gamstop for the longest time possible so disillusioned with slots.

Sorry to hear your experiences there, and yes slotting on the whole's a far cry from what it used to be.

As you mention the barrage of SoWs and other related customer- haranguing has broken what used to be quite a fun pastime, aided in no small part by the horrendous output of games we see now, spearheaded by the likes of Megaways and its ilk.

No doubt some will tell you the industry's in great shape and the games never better, but as we know that's complete horseshit

I've cut my play down to bare minimum and can't be arsed with the random tedium of this medium, I think there's far better forms of entertainment available than watching a 'game' 'randomly' deplete your money :laugh:

A real pronounced difference to even 5-6 years ago really, I wouldn't trust today's games as far as I could throw them. I think the industry's set to crash anyway the way it's going, games will get RTP-ripped into oblivion, and casinos will make evermore ludicrous demands on the hapless players, to the point where it's not gambling anymore

So whilst I hope you won't quit the forum it'd be selfish of me to wish that, as you're Gamstopping and making a clean break. All I can say is I hope to see you around at some point I guess

And you'll always have Liverpool winning the league, so there is that small comfort :laugh::cool:

Agree with Goatie that it would be cool if you stayed on the forum, but as its a gambling forum it might not be for the best.

Maybe you can pop in some day in the future and make us jealous with the money you saved, or spent on better things. =)
Hope gamestopping works out great for you!

It's just a personal opinion but BTG games are a blight on the gaming scene, everything is turning into megaways with it's potential to give a huge win to one individual but tear 99 other people a new one.

As for streamers, anyone who sees them as representative of online gambling needs professional help. Affiliate income, continual 100% bonuses on every deposit and the ability to post only what they want you to see. This is not a knock against said streamers, just pointing out the fact that they are not playing in the same field as normal gamblers, so shouldn't be seen as an example of true online gambling.

There is more choice of games and providers than ever so it is nothing to do with new releases but maybe more a matter of self control and choices?

Sorry to hear this familiar story. 2020 slots ain't what they used to be. Can't wait to see what "treats" the industry has in store for us next year... :laugh:

Without wishing to sabotage your efforts, if you max Gamstop for 5 years you may end up regretting it down the road. I've done a 6 monther in the past when I fancied a break, and that was more than enough (or: 6 months and a week for them to actually getting around to removing the block, then another two weeks convincing casinos you are not a hopeless degenerate, even though they are not supposed to block play when you are not active on Gamstop).

Good luck anyway.

I think we've merely scratched the surface of the wealth of possibilities to come in the industry.

I think - and I'm calling this now - there'll come a time where SoWs transcend into ascertaining players' affordability and possible anti-money laundering in one fell swoop. They'll call your employers directly, and probably call it GamBossDirect ™

So there is that to look forward to :thumbsup::(

Good luck....

Personally I'll probably not be far behind you - number of reasons, be it the refurb of the house i'm in before some flipping (cheers Covid) requiring a bit more cash than i anticipated and a few other things means that my cash is somewhat being tied up atm. Simply can't afford to spunk it up the wall on Bonanza as previous, nor do i want to frankly.

I've not been playing as much in the last 6 months (bar a few recent sessions): plays gone down at least 50%, partly because I don't really enjoy it anymore. I thought reducing playing would have been me enjoy it when i did play but it's been quite the opposite.

By the time i've closed a/c's based on SOW they're be no casino's left bar William Hill and the like (and no offence, i'd rather watch paint dry than watch their laggy offerings)

You are not alone.

Take this morning, saved £2 from the beating i took on Falcon Huntress last nite then manged to get it up to £20 from a purple hits on donuts at 10p went over to Magic Mirror took all of it bar £1 bonus dropped 60x played on it ate it all.

Deposit 10 goes back to MM takes it all again bar 90p bonus drops 30x move of to cerberus on Thunderkick it takes it all, deposit another £10 eats that bar £2 odd, bonus drops retriggers and got £15 with 5 dead spins at the end, so i play on for another it eats all that.

Move to BoD with the last £2 and well as said before i can't hit anything on that slot, 5 years of playing never seen 5 explores in the base, was unlucky once to get 5 pharaohs on 1p paying £20.

Slots have become boring and predictable.

Don't get me wrong I do feel for you but, if your playing those sort of games with low balances what do you really expect? I mean magic mirror, book of dead if you playing HV games, this is going to be the outcome most of the time.......

I have played like this for years, maybe the only reason my VS account is up by £600 to £700. Mainly from the £750 i won in 2017 from £20.

I never go in with more than a £30 deposit, but i can sometimes deposit £100 in 10 increments with a few withdrawals in between.

Since Jan of 2016 at VS Deposits are £5610 Withdrawals £6380 and i'm stuck halfway to lv21 with another 100k wagering to do.

So its not been that bad, but i can see how much the slots have changed in those 4 years.

I can get upto £100 sometimes, but never have the luck to surpass it, it just eats the balance to 0 if i let it.

I know i made a big stink about it and sent them an email, then stopped playing there for over 6 months to a year.

When people say RTP does not matter, they are lying. Otherwise casinos would not be trying to get providers to lower them en mass.

I was with BetVictor and a few other casinos, but once they all started lowering RTPs i closed them all.

Why would anyone keep playing 3 to 4 casinos who lowered RTPs across the board.

Is it really hard to remove gamstop then? I took a 6 month sabbatical to save to get married and i just didn't bother calling them. I was tempted to call soon but if it's that hard....
