    A few days ago, Ladbrokes released a new casino game called Cash & Curry; a 3 reel UK Pub style Fruit Machine with feature board etc.

    I Thought Id give it a whirl, put £3 in the casino part (yes just three pounds) and set it to 10p a spin.

    Within 2 minutes, it had dropped repeat jackpot for £100 followed by 7-8 wins of £15 plus (remebering this was just 10p a spin) totalling around £230 from just £3.

    This was coupled with very predictable and specific patterns to its play also. (tested by 'running' the machine for some time afterwards). I thought on my toes and physically went into a ladbrokes shop to withdrawl the amount in full to avoid any voiding problems :)

    I found today that they have pulled the game very hastily without any explanation.


    Anyone else got any news or experience of or on this?

    ...

    I also have been told through a very 'credible' source that Ladbrokes have changed thr RNG for alot of the programs and instore roulette kiosks recently also.

    Not that this has any grave or immoral background, just purley for informations sake.

    I'm not sure about it, but when it came out, I did manage to try playing on Demo mode and well... I usually have to refresh many times to play on (I like playing maximum) as I bust-out really fast. Anyway, on this slot in particular, I was playing Maximum and lo and behold, I made it up to $12000 within minutes.

    The starting amount for any of their demo (flash) is at $200. Think about it... if it was real money, wow... I'd be going NUTZ... 6000% profit. I thought it must be something wrong with the slots. Now they've pulled it. I'm sure if they release it again, whosoever plays it will most probably be gobbled up so fast, you won't even know your money's all gone when you're done.

    Good luck to you all.

    Eh?

    I thought they were Microgaming, you know, RANDOM!!!!
    Have they rigged a game and finally been rumbled because they screwed up big time and made it streak too much!!!
    A stony silence on this from then is not good enough. It is not possible for a random slot to do this, unless it isn't properly random and the non-random element has been screwed up.

    Kudos though, for the first release of a TRULY AUTHENTIC Great British pub type fruit machine complete with predictable patterns and an EMPTIER!!!!

    Answers please MG, on a postcard, to the Isle of Man and UK gaming boards:D

    i dont think ladbrokes read this forum (they are far too busy for this type of thing :p :p )

    i imagine that either the casinos or MG must be able to turn the payout percentage up and down as they wish (just like land based slots) and they have probably f*(%^$d up this time in a big way by turning it up too high - LOLOLOL!!!

    i hope they lost loads the greedy buggers :lolup: :lolup:

    thats my conspiracy theory anyway...

    Land based casinos cannot change the payout percentage up and down at will. In Nevada it involves opening up the machine, changing a chip and filing the appropriate paperwork with the Gaming Control Board.

    i had this simulator fruit machine (UK only) software where you could play around with all the switches and stuff at the back of the machine - basically you could adjust how the machine plays - mind you, i wasnt very good at it but i managed to fix it that the fruit machine would never pay the jackpot at all - i played 1000s and 1000s and 1000s of spins and it refused to pay the jackpot - this was a 25p a spin, £250 club machine

    with reference to the paperwork, i do hope that this is the case but my point was that the machines can obviously be manipulated to pay out as tight or as loose as possible

    You should be very happy it happened at Ladbrokes.

    I am sure they will pay winners and not use the 'all winnings will be void in case of malfunction' or whatever it is in the T&C.

    But it is indeed very interesting to hear the cause of that defect game.

    1) Is it the RNG
    2) Just that game use of the RNG(i.e. wrong weight/mapping)?
    3) Was it a 'setting' meaning the casinos can change MG's payout settings?

    The worst is definately #3).

    #2) is most likely.

    In case the RNG is malfunctioning this can make the casino suffer a lot worse
    than the players, so that would not scare me away.
