As a long time slotter, I've seen the evolution or slots and the creation of many high variance games. I've long given up hoping to win back losses so I generally play slots with the hope of getting some decent playtime and hopefully a bit of excitement. I'm finding lately though that if I do a small deposit of £20 or so and play low stakes, I'm relying on a megahit on something HV. If I deposit bigger say £100, I get bored of the lower stakes and end up at £1-£2 a spin and inevitably the balances vanishes. There are so many new games coming out and yet I seem to end up back on the usuals, bonanza, doa, bod etc. I'm not sure what point I'm trying to make or what I'm asking but I feel as if I don't really know how to play slots anymore! Also, does anyone else have imprints of the streamers and their huge wins when playing? I'm sure that's one of their purposes for the casinos, make us mortals believe we'll hit like that too. E.g. Was playing primal at 20p today and was almost expecting a win to drop in akin Nick slots 26k win lol. I must be deluded.
Anyway rant over, take this thread in any direction you want!
Hi Flying Guy,
I can relate 100% to your post. I also do small deposits in the hope of getting a couple of good hits to increase my stakes and then play like the Famous streamers.
But reality kicks in when my balance reaches the inevitable Zero. (Until the next week begins, anyway).
And then, I think what a fool I was, for not getting out while the going was good as I have also being deluded by the Youtube Megawins
With the images off 5k 10k wins floating about, somewhere in the back of my mind.
Because sometimes on a lucky day from my little 20euro deposit, I have managed to grow my balance to 500euro plus. (As I am thinking this is my time now, as this is my chance to hit big, o how I have waited months or weeks for this joyful session).
But weather my own greed or thoughts of past losing sessions or the Big money streamers , come into play, I cannot say for sure but i guess it is a mix of everything.
Also to note on a bad day my little 20euro deposits, Can run into 10 to 20 off these in a few hours.
So, what I am finding out is that now, Dreams of the big hit and some life changing money, the chances are very very slim. I do not know why it has honestly taken me so long to realize this but i guess its getting caught in the moment. (Yet that moment is years and years long)
And now, what I find is what helps me anyway is playing at sites with tournaments and weekly races and also putting a daily limit on deposits. Because any winnings over that daily limit, Is obviously a plus but it also reduces any negative impact, if i bust out and all I can think is, I had a good run and enjoyed my session.
Unfortunately though, It has taken me 8 months of losing sessions without limits to realize this and come to this conclusion
Don't know if that helps you any with your situation but it has helped me to vent a bit
