    Come on guys some things you really need to change & stop churning out

    1 . Dont make a song & dance about a big win of 10x bet ! make it 25x plus very irritating indeed

    2 Dont apply the trigger win to the start of the feature this one really grinds my gears , Microgaming best known for this

    3 Dont keep updating shite slots all the time with near as damn it clones of each other bring something new to the table !

    members please add your gripes & moans to the list :)

    Stop making games that pay 2x for two scatters but NOTHING for three scatters. Who thought that was a good idea?:what:

    I thought I'd seen it all when IGT (and a few others) pushed 10x as a "big win" threshold, but with some of the mega-ultra-super-duper-epic spins moving from the UK bookies to online casinos, I've seen two times stake trigger a big win! :what: I think WMS got it right there - 25-30x is a big win, 100x is a super big win, 200x is a mega big win.

    How about a guaranteed triggered feature after a set number of spins? This way you don't spend 800 spins a time waiting for a bonus to trigger. I'd cap it at about 450 spins max. Given how some of the newer releases are going down the low- variance route this would be most welcome.

    NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    RTG has this "feature guarantee" on a lot of their slots, and it's HORRIBLE!!!!!! You end up paying in 3-4x the amount you actually "win" from the feature, which is 10x the single line bet per spin. I'd rather go through the regular game w/line wins and take my chances at actually winning something by the time the feature actually hits, without having anything invested.

    At least with variable line slots, you can reduce the # of lines played by 1 to avoid paying extra for the guarantee.

    No I wasn't talking about the feature guarantee that pays out a set amount, I meant an automatic bonus round that comes every 450 spins or so. That way you get a bonus round without going hundreds of spins chasing one. Like DOA.

    But then you'd never get the same payouts for 5 wilds in the FS. The RTP woudn't balance.

    My major gripe is with Playtech removing the "number of coins" (to stake) button on their newer games. So when you want to up your bet you can only select a denomination which doubles the stake (or worse!), which is usually too rich and makes the games unplayable if you employ an evolving-bet strategy. Otherwise great games like Kong, Marilyn Monroe, Iron Man 3, Avengers, John Wayne etc are pretty much no-go areas for me :( Probably the worst (and totally unnecessary) "innovation" I have ever seen on a slot game.

    I wouldn't mind it if the guaranteed bonus round paid a certain amount, but the way RTG (and WMS, I believe) have it setup is that you pay a certain amount into the "guarantee" but yet what the feature actually pays out can be considerably less than what you've paid in...pretty nice scam they've put in.

    For instance, the Vulcan feature guaranteed slot..... 25 lines @ 25c/spin, you're paying in 10c a spin to get the feature, that must trigger within 250 spins. If you go the full 250 spins, you've invested $25 into that feature, which means you'd need to get at least a 100x bonus win in order to just break even. How often does that happen? Not enough to be profitable.....at least to the player...it's a win-win situation for the casino, considering the fact that you'll lose way more than that in the regular game in order to get this guaranteed feature - which means (at 90% RTP for 250 spins,) your break even point is increased to 125x.

    Thats how the ffed up panther moon 4 me

    I hate waiting on expanding wilds even with no win.
    I hate waiting on counting every win line in a bonus feature
    I hate not being able to spin bonusgames myself. I want to click them and if i dont, i want to be able to auto play...
    I hate to see wins from other people next to the slot in my screen. Especially since 90% are 6 to 10 euro starburst wins
    I hate not to get paid for 2 scatters (and should be 2x stake)
    I hate it if i cant adjust volume of game sound with a sliding bar. Either off or on is not good cause the min sound of my surround system is too hard for playing slots... especially DOA and Piggy Riches, since they make ridiculously hard sounds after 2x bet or higher. The mobile version of Piggy Riches is much better when it comes to the trigger value of that hard sound.
    I hate it that with microgaming you cant adjust the video quality (like you can with a lot of netent games)
    I hate the netent games lights and alien, because i need another browser to play them. Chrome doesnt support the plugin needed. Firefox can do it but very irritating to manually stop adobe flashplayer from crashing all the time.
    I HATE smal videos in games like in terminator jurassic park battlestar gallactica etcetc... i never play them anyway.
    I would like to be able to play more than 1 slot in a casino at the same time... i dont need to spin on the same moment but 1 screen with a few different slots would be awesome i.m.o.

    Things on this list and the slots i play to which they can apply, can turn hate into love when winning...

    Agree with most things in this post :) Well, hate is a strong word, dislike would be better for me..
    Anyway, e few things that may interest you:

    Lights and Alien are playable in Chrome. If you somehow can't install the update there could be an issue with your security or administrative settings, sometimes a complete reinstall can help there.

    Like Netent, MG also allows you to either play most slots on Enhanced or Basic graphics, some even have extra options.
    With those MG games, like JP, Terminator2 etc, and most of them, ou can click in the screen to insta-end the win count, and also the mini video's.

    I also like to play multiple slots at a time: There's is Redbet, who has the option for Quad play, at least for Netent slots, and Nodicbet used to have it too, iheard they were letting other countries back in again. There are some more with this function. Redbet is of course the best now, since it's accredited and has an awesome rep, and superfast cashouts :p

    Also, what i often do,is play DOA on autoplay, then also log in on my mobile where i can play other slots. Sometimes i just open the Casino in secral Tabs, and make my own stereo play. Sometimes i also just use two different Casino's with the same effect:)

    Just a few pointers, to relieve some of your "grinded gears" :p

    My advice is stop making slots where 4 and 5 scatters pay same as 3 scatters (legends of olympus, forsaken kingdom etc).
