as the title says what's the longest streak you went without a bonus triggered that you kept track of?

I usually keep track when I play against a deposit bonus....just went through my worst one and yes i realize i should have stopped much sooner.

Power Of Thor Megaways (which i have had good luck with in the past):

1.00 bets. I finally got the bonus on the 1,331st spin. That isn't the worst part....the bonus amount was 26.40

"Thankfully" the amount I lost from start to finish was "only" 158.00. Could have gone worst I guess but certainly could have gone better.

Still above my deposit + bonus and 82% done so I am not too concerned at the moment....but I think i'll give up much sooner next time. if i wasnt playing against a deposit bonus and up i certainly would have moved on to a different game much sooner

'Worm king' on videoslots, have 9279 spins in my stats and the bonus has triggered three times, one of which took 3600+ spins, playing this game to me has become some kind of sick perversion just to see how many spins it takes, the game itself is kind of like a red tigerish knock off of reactoonz, with a max win of 1000x.
Once I finish the achievements it will not be reset and will never be played again.

Unquestionably on most of the Megaways tripe, so like others, on average well over 1000- 1500.

On the more serene games like MG's 9-liners (Adventure Palace etc) I may have on occasion toiled for over 1000 spins, which relatively speaking, is like going 5000 spins on Bonanza :p

I've never pursued High-Variance monsters, as -

a) I'm not insane

b) I'd rather play something more agreeable and

c) I don't have the budget to chase pipe dreams

1200-1600 spins on piggy riches megaways and that was the full rtp version too! I am a sucker for waiting for a bonus, I think I've put this much through surely something bigs coming, but nope..... Never the case

Glad to see someone else struggles to bonus Power of Thor megaways, it regularly goes over 1000 spins without a bonus for me, but never seems to destroy the balance, which is the only reason stick with it. Base game is kind.

I've done over 2500 spins on Bonanza 4 times but always makes up for it with 3-4 bonuses close together after long streak without.

Worst was just short of 9000 spins on Twin Spin megagways, (across several casinos, days and deposits) and it paid 70x. Its strange as have no trouble bonusing it now, rarely goes 200 spins without a bonus, maybe its making up for it.

I've done over 1,000 spins without a bonus on Jack and the Beanstalk & Thunderstruck 2.
Both a long time ago - I wouldn't have the patience to keep trying these days! :p

as well it took me 694 spins to trigger a bonus in Buffalo King Megaways with the "Double the bonus" enabled. horrible luck there.

i'm not sure if it's just my luck or the casino i'm playing (which is new to me) or both (Nordicbet).

8,000 spins in one session on bonanza, I just couldn't believe it. Once I was over 3,000 I expected its imminent arrival, so at that point it was hard to stop, I was deep into talking out loud to myself and to bonanza (well cursing and expletive laden rants) stubborn mode.

The financial damage wasn't too bad, around £160 on 20/40p spins. The following day I returned to ladbrokes and landed two +5 bonuses within the first 400 spins iirc.

Had a couple of 1300 -1500 spinners on raging rhino which triggered disbelief as afaik the average wait is 115. At that point if you have the funds it's tempting to raise your stake, but game crashes seem to become more likely too.

Wow what a hardcore streak
My record is "just" some 2200 spins without D and it felt like an eternity.

I've never done more than 600-700 spins on one slot. Because I simply don't believe that the slot would give me back my losses if the bonus comes in. So basically, i always do up to 300 spins and then run away. And if i see the slot is "hot", i usually spin till i see it starts getting "cold". There is nothing unique here, a typical way of gambling.

I've yet to hit a bonus on that Thor Megaways yet. Don't play it much but that's because it's so difficult to bonus and eats my balance like chocolate.

I think I had about 800 spins on Raging Rhino at Doug’s Casino without a bonus this year over several deposits. This was in late Spring. I haven’t had the big numbers others have had since I avoid Megaways as much as possible.

Make sure you're playing the 96% version, couldn't imaging how bad the 94% RTP model would be to bonus.

It always makes me laugh when finally get feature I'm presented with options n gamble, even when haven't lost much money to get it, I can't risk wasting the 60 minutes it takes to drop in, would be devistated if I lost.

What about longest run for a tease, yesterday made the mistake of saying stay for one tease on Dog House megaways, 300x stake later (probably only about 500 spins cos played so bad) no tease and balance destroyed. Didn't even get the 'Nice' animation (15x I belive). It was awful.

Probably chocolates. I actually lost 1.5k with no bonus, despite having a nice win with 2 x6 golden ticket wilds. I think it was around 1800 spins

A lot more difficult to do (in the U.K. at least) now that UKGC have BLOODY TAKEN AWAY AUTOSPINS THE DICKS!

controversial…. since pragmatic took there games down for them to remove the sounds for none wins they have been despicable on a next level. i have timed out accounts now but prior to that they were SHOCKING. i know prag can be a pain to bonus but this was taking to the next level. in particular chilli heat megaways which wasn’t too hard to bonus with the bonus chance. when it came
back after it’s makeover i went 870 spins without bonus and that may not seem a lot but this game has been changed. another great rhino megaways filth after it’s update what the hell they do when they took them down? same thing btg done in april to bonanza and extra chilli industry is filthy and im
glad i’ve timed out i know when i’m being robbed and games are unfair vs a fair loss

I don't want to be one of those 'slots are rigged' 'the casino's control the slots and win payouts' conspiracy types, and it could just be a horrendous streak of bad luck. However, it definitely feels like something has changed.

I rarely play the high volatility monsters where you expect to get a hiding, but since the autoplay removal started, in the last 2 months on the sites I play, even the older low-med volatility Microgaming and NetEnt games; with decent bonus consistency and extended playtime; refuse to bonus and destroy every deposit.

The big wins are still there, in the last 7 days I've had 1100x on Sticky Bandits 3 non-wildline retrigger and 800x on a Royal Mint enhanced feature, but the smaller/medium wins that keep your balance ticking over seem to have vanished and the frequency of bonuses are well below what was previously expected/witnessed, via slottracker and my own record keeping. In past 2 days, Happy Holidays has gone 1200 spins without bonusing (normal bonus frequency of 136 spins) and took 450x stake, and Drive has taken 400x stake (god knows how many spins) without a bonus. The randomness of slots can lead to these long runs outside of the norm but for the past 2 months, they never make up for it with a flurry (3-4 bonuses in 100 spins) of features and go from one bonus famine to the next.

I expect to lose, but it's the manner of losing lately that has really shocked me, no playtime at all on games that previously gave plenty.

When I used to play Bonanza I always found that if you went on a very long session with no bonus, the very next time you opened the game up the bonus would land almost immediately.
