How frequently are you getting a Bonus?

Curious.

Right now I am currently running at MicroGaming slots = 820 spins on Immortal Romance (No Bonus), 200 on Jurassic Park (No Bonus), Book of Dead (Let's under exaggerate because it's definitely more) 2 Bonuses in 1500 spins. Highest payout was 40x exactly = £12 from a 0.30 bet.

That's over 2500 spins with two bonus rounds.

One in every 1250 spins.

Where's my high influx of bonus rounds?

How frequent are your bonuses?

IR is weird for me, sessions where I get none and others where I get them approx 80-120 spins apart??

Jurassic Park is a nightmare, so many 2 scatter teases, yet the other week I did it first spin - TWICE :confused:
(one payed over 200x, other was shit lol)

TSII USED to be so, so easy now it is nigh on impossible

Rhino, roughly after 80-100 or so spins then getting the next one we are talking 500+ :eek:

My cold spell has kicked in now however so probs not a good time to ask me lol but I'd say on an average session, regardless of game approx every 100 spins or thereabouts :thumbsup:

Glad to hear. But you're telling me you won 200x on JP...I'm calling you a liar on that one Jono :p

I'd be lucky to trigger a bonus on that inside 700 spins.

I sometimes think there is a game designed for us all and there is one designed against us..but JP is definitely definitely against everyone ;)

The gap between bonuses has widened I feel, I know 150 spins was the default a couple of years ago but I'd say it's more like 200+ :mad:

300 is quite commonplace, and seeing consecutive long waits between features isn't even as strange as it used to be.

The average trigger frequency has gone down the way I see it, but then maybe I'm just lying and imagining the whole thing :(:cool:

never :/

not joking my last 4 deposits, with bonus i had 0 features in about 800 spins, one of those games being ... Robo jack. thats where i decided i dont need this $#(# anymore and if all my starts on a slot are going to be like 40% rtp, with hopes how maybe one day i can get to 90ish % rtp... i can live without slots :D

last 2 slots i played were IR , 333 spins with 40% rtp, and robo jack 519 spins with 39% rtp and no bonuses. Biggest win was 9x. i really dont see a point anymore

last time i got this pissed off i havent played for almost 2 years, this time i might quit for good :oops:

sorry if its a bit off topic lol, but i really havent had a bonus for like 2 weeks now, althro i havent played for a few days already

Microgaming is probably one of the worst for waiting. Well aside form bonanza of course. But I dont even remember the last time I had an IR bonus under 75 spins or any of their high V games really

I cannot seem to hit any bonus on anything lately, major cold patch!

Last night for example;

IM, 600 spins not a single bonus and 18 x 2 scatters.

TSII, 440 spins not a single bonus and 11 x 2 scatters.

Jurassic Park, 515 spins not a single bonus and 9 x 2 scatters.

Had a few reasonable wins in the process in order to keep spinning but still finished up busted.

Looks like you're better off playing Novomatics if you can. Bonuses don't come all that frequent but at least they pay most of the time. Similar with Merkur.

ALL high variance slots and is not out of the norm for this to happen. TSII is probably one of the worst for not hitting a bonus at times. I suggest not staying on these slots so long if they arent paying. Just my experience on them anyways.

Been there and done that with the hits. So my experience is such that I can avoid not even suggesting Novo to peeps. They are the worst or sure.

Bonuses can drop in every 2 thousand spins. (But like you say are usually worth the wait). I've even gone to the trouble of closing my account with Casumo because of Novo :(

Very first spin on Rhino today produced the bonus but you have guessed already it paid the GB.
Lost 100 euro very rapidly on minimum bets.
Thankfully The Finer Reels have been kind and produced quite a few bonus rounds and most have paid 20 euro plus on minimum bets so not too bad.
Stopped playing Jurassic Park as it has been as bad as Robbing Rhino however the Rhino keeps calling me to play.

I usually leave a slot after first bonus or about 20 spins after it if it doesnt trigger again.
Most times bonus triggers within the first 100-120 spins.if not , i leave it too.so i cant say too much about the frequency in a longer session on one slot.but i never did wait about 500 spins or sonething to trigger it.

Agree with that. I was fed up of 100's of spins on microgaming for a feature paying 10x or netent even less sometimes.
So made 2 deposits no bonus at casumo in a week, had 2 cash outs. Solely playing novomatics, not always like that mind as I've lost a fortune before chasing a novo that pays terrible.
But most of the time at least you know the bonus has the capacity to put a smile on your face.

i used to get a feature every 5-25 spins on candy dreams
but that game was unavailable for about 5 hours
now it gives a feature every 100 spins or so
IR i get once every 120
if unlucky it goes 250 at most without feature

In my last online session and my last trip to a local casino, I accrued bonuses frequently. Got a 40x and a 200x bonus in Medieval Money at Kathleen's Casino and yesterday got a 181x bonus in Attack of the Monsters from Aristocrat and a few shitty ones afterwards at OLG RCR. Both sessions netted me $40 in profit when all was said and done.

Lately once a month on Bonanza and maybe twice a month on Merkur it seems :rolleyes:

Hit FS on Rhino with my box win, very first spin. Didn't know their lag is so bad, 8 spins took 17 minutes to finish. All that for, you guessed it, "Bonus guarantee" win. But to be fair, I am doing really good on Book of Dead, never go more than a hundred spins without bonus and usually pays well.

Honorary mention goes to Hellboy, just realized I had three 50 Euro sessions recently, on min bet, and couldn't trigger the damn Supermode.

Mg can take the mickey sometimes its normally 250-200 spins at most but i have never seen above about 800 spins on any mg game before it comes in, netent games almost the the same maybe a little worse with upto 1000 seen a few times (usually bust out before it happens though) but again usually be within 300.

The absolute worst is Bonanza, I've never had the bonus on probably over 4000 spins on bonanza that golden D just does not exist on those reels for me. Raging Rhino is the same prob not played as much as bonanza but never had the free spins on rhino either.

Pretty much all those games are dead for me except for Rhino, which I can't play because my provincial government's casino is shit. I do recall hitting more Supermodes than picking games in the past on Hellboy.

Last, played IM, miracously had Wild Romance 3 times, yes 3 times, in the first 15 spins giving me a grand total win on £3 spins of ..................................................£15 lousy pounds! :mad: 2 x nadda, 1 x £15 WTF? Ended my entire evening right there, checked out my remaining deposit and quit.
