I think I just hit Rock bottom at Slotastic!

    Let me preface by saying that I think that Slotastic and the Jackpot Capital group are an honest, well run group of casinos whom I've always held in the highest regard.

    That being said, I just closed my account at all of them. I hit rock bottom today when I had well over 600 spins with NO FEATURE on "Fruit Frenzy" at Slotastic. I confirmed that number with customer service. Six Hundred spins. No feature. My bets ranged from $1.75 to $6.25. My balance started at over $750 and ended at zero.

    It is not money that I couldn't lose... it was my usual budgeted bankroll. I really feel the need to share this, even if it upsets the forum. I have posted "great wins" before, so I only think its fair to show "great losses" also.

    I share your pain but I find myself waiting on average about 250- 300 spins per feature nowadays as opposed to the 'default' 150+ spins like I used to a couple of years ago.

    I think a lot of games are veering towards the higher variance range and we are just seeing the results of this. The other day I had a great, consistent and balance- stable session for about an hour and then it just went wrong! Before my terminal spin the count stood at 488 spins and I was pissed off for sure.

    I'm not sure if I'd react by closing my account but I'm guessing you're more of a high- roller, ie (anything above £1 a spin to me) lol so I can see 700 vanish quite easily but imagine how you'd feel if that happened on low bets. Then you can join the MG hate club!:thumbsup:

    Thanks Man. I closed my account because I realized after that many spins that I wasn't having fun. I was super frustrated and the experience turned me off. I always told myself that when gambling became not fun I would stop... and there I was. Maybe I needed a break!

    Anyways, best of luck to you!!

    I have to ask, and I mean this in the nicest way, why would you spin that much on one slot if it's not paying off for you? I find that if a slot isn't going anywhere I move on. Sometimes I can spin once on a slot and hit a nice return but if I wasn't getting anywhere I'd go find something else to play. I'm just curious and I don't mean any disrespect.

    haha, slots are not like the old fruit machine in the fish and chippie, lurk long enough and you can cash in on someone elses misfortune.

    That's a good question and no disrespect taken... I usually don't chase features, but i let it go for SO long I wanted to see how far it would go. Who knows... it may have gone to 1000 spins.

    This was the best statement that I have read in a while. You did exactly the right thing, if its not fun anymore than stop. Find something else to please you, it is likely to be a darn sight cheaper.

    Thanks for sharing your experience, sometimes its good to hear about the tough times as well as the good ones.

    i actually think they are like this.. i reckon online slots are set up to take a certain amount before paying out a certain amount.

    just depends who the lucky one is at the slot at the time

    Wow, 600 spins without a feature... Personally I stick to NetEnt and I would seriously think something was wrong with the game if I played 600 spins without a bonus. Is this common at RTG casinos now a days? As I wrote in another thread I stopped playing RTG slots a few years back when I noticed how much harder it got to win anything, but 600 spins... just ridiculous.

    Chasing a slot

    I've chased a slot so many times it's sickening -- namely DOA, Battlestar Gallectica and Dark Knight Rises. I certainly sympathize. You get so pissed off you just keep spinning and spinning. Unfortunately, not a smart thing to do but been there ... done that. Sometimes we don't think logically when losing.

    Sticking to Elements and Mega Fortune mostly. Never had to wait 600 spins from what I can remember, even though it's getting harder to win bonus features.

    Something similar happened to me today, i got a nice win on georgie porgie and then i changed to a slot called big chef and did just over 600 spins without any 5oak and no scatter feature so i came off because i was so worried because it had ate so much money so i came off with no entertainment value at all.

    I still can't stop thinking about it now and like you i was going to make a post about it, i just couldn't understand why a slot couldn't give a feature even if it was to give just x10, i thought these where made for entertainment value as that is what we are told.

    I definitely agree with your first statement!!!
    That being said , I am close to following you on the beginning of the second statemen.t"That being said, I just closed my account at all of them" However , I cant go this far. Jackpot capital was the first online casino i played at several years ago so remaining loyal but not contributing.
    I think it might be all luck. I used to win occasionally but now its rare. Same with slotastic. Give an example Slotastic used to give a lots of wins Then ceased for months..So i ceased playing for months too..about a month ago for the hell of it deposited 45 bucks played 40 cents on achilles..First spin RANDOM JACKPOT 1,500 PLUS!! So far havent given it back as yet I go there now and cant last 5 mins.
    So its all luck cappync when its your time its your time

    There was a thread started earlier this year about how long people had spun between features on games that might be of interest if you missed it.

    It was specific to MG Slots -but I think it is safe to bet it can happen with all the various game suppliers from time to time.

    Many 600 to 700 spins and also 1000 to 1500+ so your not alone in chasing the features.
