...or how my luck got tired....

Well, deposited 10 € (tuesday)=, played DOA at minimal bet and busted. Bad luck.

Yesterday deposited 10€, played DOA and after some 170 spins got this...

My first wild line ever. It looks nice, but all that wilds came late in bonus...I think the total amount of spins to get wildline is abouit 5000 and 20 bonuses...
I stil have no clue how to keep statistic at Netent...

Nice. So, lets try to build this.

Tried Secret of Atlantis (minimal bet). Very friendly, got two 15-20x wins and raised to 0.60. Got 50x and reached 100 €

Wow, what now?

I know, Secret of the Stones. I favour this slot a lot. But it doesn't me. I entered in the super cold and dry cluster without any major wins and any free spins. And for some 400 spins!!! I was really on the floor (9 € !) and finally FS came (scatters on last three reels):

Tried more spins just to see is it still in good mood, but soon I switched to many didfferent games (Tornado Farm Escape, Wanky Wabbits, Jack and the B..., Theme Park) and reached 112 € (alway playing at minimal bets, 30-50 spins).

Then tried Twin Spin and soon quit...my balance dropped to 90 € and wanted to build it up.

So I tried Atlantis again. But now this water was so cold and freezing...again hundreds of dead spins and rescue again at 15 €:

Now I knew that thrid time maybe won't be possible to save. So I switched to Invisible man. Balance was raising and dropping: 100-30-70-85) and I should stayed here or finished for the day.

But I didn't. Switched to Fantasini: Master of Mystery. Well, there is no mystery: this is rotten money eating slot without any potential so it is first on my no-play-again list. I do fancy twin spin but I don't like games without bonus features.

So, dropped there to 69 € and managed to get back to 79 €. No, why I didn't stop then, I don't know. I was hoping to some gigantic 5-reel spinner (and I did have 2 or 3 but with weakest symbol combinations and "only" 50x wins).

I was playing min. bet all the time (0.25).

So, I was sinking. Slowly but surely. That little hope of rescue win was chasing me all the time. At the 4 € managed to get 5-reeler and uped to 15 €, but I thougt that RTP is waking up. But it didn't.

No rescue.

All in all, lesson is learned: Netent is ful of low and medlum variance games.The funniest and childish, the better. I don't think they can burn you as this one. In fact, I don't think that any other slot would do something like this.

But then again, I thought that Fantasini will save me with mystery. He simply chained and robbed me And I helped him.

Only just spotted after all this time that 'Netent Variance' is an anagram of FUCKING RIGGED :rolleyes:

And their motto "Better Gaming", when looked at in detail, is actually an anagram of

"Ha ha you douchebags, watch as your balance drains away on pointless 2x wins and how you'll never get too far ahead, certainly not enough to ever really cash out. In fact the only game you stand any chance on is DOA and that's seasonal at best and likely to cause a breakdown"

It's amazing what a few letters can do :(

About once in every 150 bonuses if you look elsewhere on the forum, and even then I have strong suspicion that the wildline win is "crowd funded" like a lottery machine rather than working on a truely random algorithm

I don't see the problem? You put in £10 and had £112 at one point, that is 11.2x your deposit amount!!

That's the same if i put in £100 and had £1,120 then moaned that netent is bad and i never had a chance because i kept playing.

Netent does make me angry however :lolup::lolup:

After a frustrating run on ALL SLOTS save for a Dragon's Temple win at PlayOLG.ca that led to a cashout, I think I will avoid slot machines until October 28. I will make another deposit at Leo Vegas to play blackjack/roulette and not have Natalija and Irma seduce me out of my money again at the Roulette table.

That is a VERY good point, well made.
To get up to more than 10x your deposit is a pretty impressive achievement on any software!
But finding the "Cash-out" button would be an even greater achievement... :p

I could agree with both of you (especially with bolded), but up to a point.

I dodn't think that many slots (MG's I play most) would kill 82 balance with minimal bet in 450 totaly cold spins....

As said, luck got tired...

Now tried again to build my balance little by little...

Well, here is another story from this morning.

No deposit, just one free daily spin od Starburst (bet-at-home).

All minimal bets...

And that free spin gave 45x, decided to try little more, some 30 spins, no profit, no damage. 4.50 €

Wishemaster...after 2 spins bonus and reinforced with wild reels 3 spins after...climbed to some 15 €.

Jungle Spirit, never played it for real, so I couldn't resist. No bonus, few 3OAK tigers, elephants...dropped to 7 €.

Decided to try Jack and the Beanstalk..slowly melting what left, but this slot gives some good playtime. So I managed to get bonus. Balance is 3 €
Promising bonus with two retrigers and all collected keys, but only two harp wild reels..still, a nice 80x. Balance is 21€.

Wonky Wabbits - first 10 spins and 6 of them brought one wild, managed to get 30x. Topped to 31€. Continued and dropped to 27€.

Secrtet of the Stones - frequent two scatters, not so good base game and at 15€ managed to get free spins. Won 22 spins with wild 4th reel and with almost 50x managed to get back at 27 €.

I did understand that is most probably my peek. I had two options:
a) little more push with some less dangerous slot
b) start chasing fs (and maybe wildline) with DOA.

Picked A. Sadly. Go bananas really destroyed me and dropped to 10 €.

I quit. But 5 minutes later I am back (!!!) on Invisible Man. And down to 3 €.
Tried to pull myself out with Starburst, but I starbusted!

Clean stupidity! Laws in my country prohibit foreign on-line slotting, deposit and payout, so I couldn't made cashout, but I could played DOA with casino money...

I only made one deposit there. Probably wont again because i use visa only and the min withdraw is 75.00 to visa.

Didnt know thry did a 1 spin on starbust daily. Its not in my promos anyway, but i guess ill never know because it wont let me even open the game without funding my account :eek2:

Sad, because i wanted to use that 1 spin to beat my best hit of 26x on starburst in the past year or 2 of playing a lot of free spin gifts on it, 45x is truelly massive.:notworthy

Nice u got some fun out of it... that jatb result sounds very poor imo, for 2 bloody retriggers!

Are you ready for new episode?

After 19 days free spin at Starbust produced some 7x win (of course, with wilds) so I decided to try more at 0.10 bet...and after some 15-20 spins of sustainable play, hit sevens and my first 100x at Starburst...peeked to 11 € and tried very carefully for next 25 spins and switched to JATB. Nothing major happened, had some 100 spins with 0.20 bet, managed to get two free spins (about 25x each). Then opted for one of my favourites, Secret of the Stones and after some 20 spins had 50x base game hit (0.25) and started to chase FS. And I got them after some 30 spins (4 scatters trigger, 50x at the end). I was at 22.€ balance. Tried (again, with great caution) Wonky Wabbits (every now and then single wild so my balance was steady) and then Wishmaster (bonus after 2 spins, but without any big win/loss) and quit after 30 spins. Now opted for Secret of Atlantis (to me very gentle version of Twin Spins) with min bet. First 30 spins were quite dead, but balance was melting very slowly so I continued and some wins started and finally got gigantic 627x (5 of kinds pearls).. Balance went sky high to over 150 €. Continued with 0.40 and managed to get 30x win and finished with 160 €.

That was my road to peek, you can guess what will happen next...

Just to be clear, anyone would cashout this. I would also, but as I said before, laws in my country restrict that (since bet-at-home isn't domestic on-line casino or betshop).

So, I started to play well known and popular slots knowing that my balance wouldn't hold...

Jungle Spirit - strange game...rare wins, but almost all the time wins quite above my bet size (0.20).. managed to get 2 bonuses (both bears, about 30x) and tewo base game hits (about 25x)...it is hard to track to stats, but I think I did some 400-500 spins. Balance: 140.

Warlords - everything what Dunover said in his review was completely true. Bet was 0.30, but it seems that more than half playtime I played with 0.15 lines. The playtable is simply the cheat, bonuses very rare. In some 500 spins managed to get 5 bonuses (green and blue) and only one was above 20x (all other were one-digit). I don't think I'll triy this one soon...balance dropped to 110.

DOA - well, I couldn't resist. With still good balance, I put 1000 spins in it with 0.18 bet. First bonus came after 450 spins (!), all together I had five. Wins from it like copied from Warlords, Pure misery. Best base game hits were 30x (twice). Dropped to 60 €!!!!

So, I decided to try something to stop melting and returned to Starburst... of course, it wasn't in the mood and I finished at 50 € balance.

All that happened in the morning (usually when Mark does his streaming)...

In the evening I tried something like comeback and picked JATB. Now that was horrible, I really thought that this slot is maybe most friendly of all the slots. Playing at 0.40 in siberian coldness I couldn't reach anything and I was (after some 200 spins) at 10 € !!!

At the end I tried Wishmaster again and got the lamp (3x) on secoind spin and during feature another (2x). However, I didn't get new 10 spins (!!!). I did improved to 20 €, but I didn't quit. Played until 5 € in balance and stopped....
