It was there the other day and somebody had hit the big random jackpot.

Remember when the diamond game disappeared from RTG casinos? It came back and didn't seem to hit as much.

Wasn't it like $26,000 or something? Maybe they'd rather not pay out as much at one time so they're making it hit a little more frequently (and therefore at smaller amounts)?

I played Fruit Frenzy at VIP Lounge last week and got 5 symbols(including wilds) on 3 lines for a total of 9 cannon shots. Unbelievably, none of them hit the target and I had to settle for 15 free spins only. So it seems that it has already gone downhill.

It could be that particular operator too. Since RTG licensees can adjust VP, slots, etc. If VIP Lounge is a rather new casino, it stands to reason their games will be set on the tightest setting possible until they build up a nice fat bankroll. Then maybe they will consider changing their payouts to be more like iNetBet. Or I could just be talking out of my ass, since I really don't know! :D

What I do know is that default win of 15 spins, with 9 opportunities to add 5 more, really did SUCK! I'm sorry you had to endure that.

Good riddance. They should get rid of all the RTG slots. Ronin should be the next game on the chopping block.

In fact I wish MG would follow their lead and start retiring some games (like half of them at least). By this time next year, we'll have another 100+ games to download on each new MG casino install.

Hi Everyone,
I would like to just clarify a few queries which are being raised in this post.
Over the weekend we had a number of reports from players that they thought the Bonus Game was not performing as it should be i.e. they were not getting enough free spins when this feature was hit.
We informed RTG of this query and whilst they are looking into this we have asked them to remove the game from the lobby. As far as we could see the game was performing as it should have been. However as a precaution we thought it best to have the game removed while RTG looked into the Bonus Game issue that had been reported.
The Fruit Frenzy game has not been removed because of the Random Jackpot win. This was won by a player last week prior to any issues being raised and is not connected in any way.
Hopefully the game will be added back to the range of real series slots that we offer shortly.
In answer to Slotjunkie the random was large this time ($25,674.05) as when it was hit previously the player who won was not eligible for payment. The reasons for this were twofold; they won on a free money coupon and they had opened multiple accounts previously to claim this same coupon. The Jackpot was thus returned to the game. This was fully documented in one of our May newsletter sent out to our players.
Best Regards

I Noticed

that the bonus round didn't seem as good as normal, i had two rows of five on the same spin and never hit the centre in six shots. I suppose it has to happen sometimes though but if it was happening to a lot of people well done for getting it checked.

I disagree, it would seem better business sense to set all games on the highest % payout, draw players in and then crank the % pay-out back.

Don't think too many players would return to a new casino if their games were super tight, do you!

Edit:

Any software that can be manipulated places an air of doubt over each casino that uses it, least in my eyes. Until such time (if ever) they pave a proven track record of integrity. As far as I'm concerned iNetBet has done this to the letter T :thumbsup:

Fruit Frenzy

Lol, I thought it was just me but now I know different. Over the last week I have got the bonus on Fruit Frenzy 21 times ,with three shots at more spins each time. Out of these 63 shots , ZERO went in the melon for extra spins !!Astounding !! One of these was actually a three bagger like the one stated above where I got 9 shots with zero in the melon.
Let it be noted here that none of these were at INetBet but actually at two different RTG casinos. Seems to be another kink in the software after adding the four recent new game releases and of course it cost me two deposits.

I think we had discussed this in another thread on whether or not casinos re-introduce the random jackpots if hit by a non complying player. Interesting.

I also noticed this discrepancy recently and quit playing this game altogether. Seems interesting that casino operators think we will continue to play something that has the feel of being "fixed" as in repaired continuously without noticing that it was "fixed" to the favor of the casino. WE AS PLAYERS DO NOTICE a change in the games!. Just a note, I noticed a few others have "removed" this game also, such as Grand aces etc..Wonder if it's an across the board screwup on settings to the detriment of the player and they got caught with hands in the cookie jar (lot of complaints about the game recently)?

Something is serious wrong then. When it was working I believe my hit-rate was 40-50% (total sample of maybe 50 shots). This bug would mean you are playing a slot with payout% about 70%. (For MG slots removing the bonus round gives them payout about 70%).

If it was MG this would result in a refund.

Wow. Last time I played fruit frenzy there, every time I hit the
cannon, I also got no spins. This was repeatedley. It didnt seem rite, so I stopped playing the game that night.

So I believe them when they say there was a problem and they are checking into it.

I think its also good of them to return the jackpot to the game, considering
all the crappy casinos out there that will just pocket it.

I don't believe the random jackpot was ever hit at all on Fruit Frenzy. I play at iNetBet (or at least go in and check out the random jp amounts) everyday and I saw no evidence of it being hit. Usually the moving banner will announce such a big $$ JP winner and it didn't. I am about done with this casino as I have seen a change in the last couple of months with their payouts - VERY stingy bonus rounds, etc. I am going to download a couple of other RTGs and try them out.

You will be disappointed I think. I have played several others and they all have been much tighter for me.

It hurts the RTG brand that the casinos can change the payout%. You never know how much you are cheated as there is never a payout% for slots at RTG casinos.

Also I see a tendency that the higher slot bonus coupons you the RTG casino offer, the tighter their slots are.

I like MG casinos because you know what you get. If you play Thunderstruck somewhere it is always the same and not a watered down version with payout 85%. It is a shame as the newer RTG slots has some very fun and more advanced bonus rounds compared to MG.

Because the RTG slots are tighter than MG slots (MG slots have payout about 95%, some at 96%) and I suspect they are much tigther at some casinos, I never play RTG slots without a 50%+ cashable bonus. The RTG are shooting themself in the foot with this spiral of higher bonuser and tighter slots.

I agree. Like you said, the player never knows what they are getting with an RTG slot. I won't be playing them much. RTGs are a double edged sword - the ones with good bonuses have tight slots, and the ones with looser slots (like iNetBet) have lousy bonuses. They've really perfected the methods of keeping your money, but they won't see much of mine anymore.

I chased the Fruit Frenzy jackpot for several months and really don't want to think about how much money I spent on that game alone. Just prior to the jackpot being hit, I also noticed problems in the bonus round....after about the 8th consecutive bonus round over the course of two or three days and only receiving the minimum 5 free spins each and every time, I finally decided I had wasted enough time and money chasing that particular jackpot. :eek2:

I will be waiting to see iNetBet re-set the Fruit Frenzy jackpot when the problem with the game is resolved. Before they removed the game from the software, the random jackpot had NOT been re-set to its original amount (as indicated in an earlier post from iNetBet).

I think someone hit that random a couple months back but was not eligible and that's when Inet reset it. If I'm incorrect I think someone from Inet will correct me. I played at Inet last Saturday and Fruit Frenzy was there but the jackpot was reset and I'm assuming someone hit the large random jackpot.

Hi trkwak,
Yes that is correct. AS per my previous post the Jackpot was hit earlier in the year at around 18k, the player was not eligible and the balance was replaced. The recent win for over 25k was legitimate and we will thus not need to replace it.
In response to trips to wins conspiracy theory, I can assure you that the Jackpot was hit. Details will be contained in our forthcoming newsletter. Please be aware that not all players want to have their name included in moving banners etc and we respect their choice.
Kind Regards

Add me to the list of people that got ripped off on the free spins feature of fruit frenzy on a couple of different casinos!

I was going to edit my post but didn't get to it in time. I apologize if you thought my post sounded like I thought there was some kind of "conspiracy theory" as I did not intend it to. However, I still thought it odd that there was no banner mention of a that big $$ JP winner. (The banner gives no pertinent info on the winner that I have ever seen). Then the game went missing on the games list. What are the players supposed to think or feel when that happens?
Anyways, as a player of the Fruit Frenzy game, I was just teed off I guess. I mentioned the bonus rounds because I very much noticed how they had changed.
I will take my 10 lashes with a wet noodle but I still felt a big let down when I
saw everything was gone and didn't know why. Slot lovers remorse.

Thanks for clearing up the confusion iNetBet :)

My comment about the jackpot needing to be re-set was based on the following post on page one:

"In answer to Slotjunkie the random was large this time ($25,674.05) as when it was hit previously the player who won was not eligible for payment...."

I guess there's two ways to interpret that post.

Doesn't matter if they want it published or not, you can always say "ANONYMOUS WON $$$$$$ AT INETBET" so yeah, this isn't jiving with me, RTG software is obviously crap. If a casino with such a good reputation wants to keep business, they'd change providers, just my opionion
