hey guys quick question. Has anyone else had bad luck on these slots lately? The past week now they have not been hitting at all. I know its just my luck proably and it is after called gambling! But I have played these games at a few diff. casinos and they do not seems to hit at all. It seems to take forever to hit the bonus. I also usually do ok on ladies night/thunderstruck etc. But lately nothing seems to hit. Or at least the bonus rounds are hard to hit. Just wondering if anyone else has had the same luck. Just curious. :)

Earth, man!
Until last night at least, i finally saw the 30 free spins. Ironically it was a 6 free spin bonus that hit me 70k coins...... Katmandu has been ok to me this week though.

New games always seem to be hot for the first few weeks but they soon show their true colours :rolleyes:

It's ALL timing. My brother says he's getting alot of bonus rounds on Halloweenies, and I can't get one to save my life. On the other hand, I had lots of bonus rounds on Katmandu 2 days ago, but couldn't get a damn thing yesterday. If you're there at the right time a machine can be hot...... but they all turn to bad eventually. No machine ever stays hot too long.

I give them a number of spins and if they don't hit I move on.

I definitely see cycles and I jump on when I see a good number of hits and jump off when I don't.

Recently went 787 spins without the bonus on Ladies night. Was crazy. Think have only hit 500+ twice on the Thunderluck type slots.

I received the 5% cashback bonus at Ladbrokes and never had a bonus round on Spring Break after 350 spins! That was at 45 cents a spin.

Lately (the past couple of weeks), I've done horrible on Kathmandu (sick of double 10 all the time), Loaded and Harveys. Done OK at Thunderstruck, Munchkins and Ho Ho Ho.

Thank God for an unexpected bonus from First Web for $45 - managed a big win on T'Stuck for $250 at 90 cents/spin.

Love Jackpot Factory casinos!

Hi!
Made a 100$ deposit on both King Neptune and Trident Lounge and played "loaded". Reached 160 quite easily in both of them, and then the slot ran dry - cashed out the initial 100$ because it seems lately I'm having bad luck with MG (lost more than 500 in march - and I consider that to be a lot of money).
For the same reason I now play with just 25*4 or 25*8 coins.

Anyway, I got free spins eight(!) times, but each time totalling not more than 1000 coins (at .001) - even less than 300, once. I eventually tried to raise coin denomination to .002 with the same results.

Overall it seemed "loaded" itself was not too bad, but free spins really sucked.
I stopped playing Harveys weeks ago, when realized I was throwing money away.

I find that a good bit of the slots lately it is very hard to get the bonus. Like I always state I know it all comes down to luck. But my luck must have run out big time! Loaded I did ok on. But it took forever to hit the bonus. And I noticed it was harder to hit things when I bet 1.25 and up. Then when I had won a little bit I was betting 5 bucks a spin and I hit the bonus twice and I won 30 dollars what a disgust. And then the second time I won 100 dollars. It usually hits more than that betting 5 dollars a spin! I am not blaming the slots or the casino like I said I guess its my luck. Harveys..I don't even wanna talk about that slot! lol It never hits the bonus. I used to be able to at least hit something on ladies nite..thunderstruck. Even then I can't hit anything. Wheres lady luck? lol :D

Personally I find Loaded and Harveys as two very dangerous machines if you start wagering. Theese machines can eat very much, and they pay out very little.

Take Loaded for example, I'm around 5K down on this one. $10 is terrible. First time I wagered $10 I got all 5 scatters, which awarded me a start of $1000 which was great, the following freespins (choose 16) gave me around $100 which I find very bad!

The other day I was wagering $25 on loaded and got the bonus, 4 scatters which awarded me a kickstart on $500. I choose 16 spins and final result was $671 or $691, dont recall. Nevertheless this is truly terrible! This means that 16 spins of $75 wagering gives $171... (My 5K evening)

I also got Harveys on $25, first time it gave $3000 which I thought was very impressive. Then a few days later I got it again and was awarded a bonus of $80... (My 5K evening) This is in my opinion extremely bad!

Some days ago I got the bonus again on $25 on harveys, 12 freespins awarded and a wonderful win of $125.

Sure - I'm out of luck!

So what did I learn? Here is my wisdom for those that wants it :

1. If you want to win big on Loaded and Harveys, you need to wager atleast $25 each spin!
2. Be aware that when you play high on Loaded and Harveys the machine will piss on you, unless it's that time to pay out big.
3. If you wager $2.5 the machine will consistantly pay avarage, and bonuses will be ok. However you can't win big.

I tried a whimpy 6 spins of $50 aswell on Harveys, but I quickly stop that as the payout was 20% on thosse spins, and 46 $25 spins later I got the fantastic $125 bonus... So I'm pretty glad I stopped those $50 spins.

WARNING!

When Katmandu goes cold, get the hell off it or you will lose everything! :D

This game can have awesome bonus rounds, but you can easily go over 1000 spins between bonus rounds when it's cold. I got an awesome bonus round in the beginning and never saw the bonus again in over 1000 spins. This happened two or three times now. First day the game was out I got 5-elephants X5 on the bonus round betting $1.26/spin for a $308.00 bonus round, and then it went south big time. I've never seen a bonus round game that can go so long between bonuses. Ironically, when the game was new, I got 5-scatters, but most of the time getting 3 seems impossible.

Regarding Katmandu this game seems to be very in favour for the Casino, together with Harveys. I base my conclution on this on the mere fact that this game very often gives winspins, not huge but you win something all the time.

Take Harveys as an example, two scatters which doubles your spin, seemes to come all the time. Looking mathematical in this this is not goot.

Take the easy calculation, we do $100 wagering for illustration purposes.
You wager $100 and get two scatters and get $200, you then spin one more time without any pay and are back on $100 again - this is typical for Harveys.

Two spins equals $200, payout $200. This is 100% payout, and if we are talking 95% payout you have already on theese two spins lost $10. Keep doing this a few more times and you owe the casino $50 without winning or loosing anything. Point is, when you have spinned say 100 spins on $5, you have already wagered $500 - and in many cases at this point you havnt lost more than say $50. In this scenario the only mathematical way you accually can win, is by hoping someone messed up and had alot of $5 dollar spins which went out the window...

I see this for both Kathmandu and Harveys, they give small wins all the time which really destroys your chance in hitting big. On the other hand, I don't like my experience from Vinul Coundtown which ate $2500 on $9 with 20 spins between each $2 win... However this only goes to show that I was wagering foolishly here after someone probably hit $5000 or so. How nice of me filling that statistical gap so that new players could have more fun, :D

loaded bonus

don't you get a bigger kickstart after a big win (4 scatters) if you choose the 12 free spins?

another thing that i don't get with Loaded is why the freespin options are 12, 16 and 24. i'm not a mathematician, but shouldn't it be 12, 18 and 24?

You might have a point there, I rememeber the first spin if having scatters gives a strange payout (higher than expected). Needless to say in both my rounds this scatter on next spin was all I was awarded... hehe.

Could you explain more what you mean why choosing x4 with more scatters? Are there some tactics involved here I have missed?

On the other hand, the 12 - 16 - 24 is pretty annoying, you would think it was 18. I'm pretty sure there is a good reason for this. On the other hand x4 with 12 spins is 2 spins more than Tallo Ho for instance. Alot of the games have only 10 spins, and the games that are really bad on freespins - like Munchkins and those have 20 freespins which usually retriggers atleast one time. I have a feeling that in 1 out of 2 times it retriggers, and 1 out of those 2 times it retriggers again and such. However I never got more than 100 spins, and this had very little to do with Loaded and Harveys, :D

I could be wrong on this regarding the Loaded slot so please correct me if someone knows better. Whenever you trigger the feature, you get that additional bonus amount on the 1st free spin. Whenever I get a spin beyond the usual 3 scatters that triggers the feature, I always select the 12 spins as that 1st spin is an automatic big score so it's advantageous to have it scored X4. (that's the part I could be wrong about though, I'm not sure if that additional bonus amount on free spin #1 gets the multiplier, but I believe that it does)

I never select the 16 spins as that seems like a bad deal. Plus the chick for the 24 spins is much hotter.

Loaded is my favorite slot, but I'm amazed that the NAACP hasn't taken Microgaming to task on this one. You gotta admit, it's pretty bad even if it is in jest. The graphics on this are at least as egregious as say naming one's child after an online casino.

What would really be offensive on Loaded is having a bonus round in which you have to choose either a convienience store, a gas station, or a liquor store........ and the pimp with the white hat goes into the one you chose and pulls off an armed robbery. Whatever money he gets, that's how much you win on the bonus. There could also be the possibility of getting nothing on the bonus round if he gets shot by the police.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I believe the only dealings the NAACP has is within the USA. Other countries can do what they want :) But that's another story, for another thread, I'm sure. Hijack over :rolleyes:


btw, great suggestion tim...should send that over to MG...maybe they can implement it :D

Or even more offensive....have him drive up in a pink pimped out caddy, rough up his ho's and take the money from them :lolup:
