Some of these might be dumb or have been discussed before but here are some things I have been wondering about...

On bonus slots...

if you spin and spin and spin without hitting the bonus, if you stop for a short break, does the cycle begin all over? If you had 400 spins, stopped for a few minutes, would you begin at spin 401? Is it better to keep going or stop and start again? Or just stop?
Sometimes I notice after a dead session the next time I play it hits right away. What is going on with the game inbetween? I know a bit about how real world slots work, but just how do MG slots work?

if I am on a roll on several slots, will it be hot for other people playing as well?
if the games seem dead, when could things change? 1 day, 1 week, 5 minutes?

is it better to jump around and find something that seems to be hot, or just stay put till a game warms up.

Inquiring minds want to know.....:confused:

You can test this for free yourself.
Just roll a die and notice how often you roll a '6'. Then take a break... And come back to roll again. Did it get any better?:D

Your past spins have absolutly no influence on your future spins. All slots works the same, with the law of large numbers.

In all my play time, I have noticed that there are severe 'dry streaks' where I do not get bonuses at all... and other times when I get quite a few. While the random generator should really be truly random - real play often appears to fly in the face of the RNG.

But... RNG and all... if I am on a losing streak - I stop playing for a while or at the very least go to another slot.

What about the Hitman bug though. If, in a free spin round, you get the green bonus TWICE, the SECOND one causes the game to freeze, and also repeats the first green bonus win. DESPITE the games being random, SOMEHOW, the game knows that this is the "second green bonus in this free spin round", and it acts differently. In this case, it crashed, but how do we know this memory effect is not present in ALL the games, just programmed properly so it doesn't crash. In hitman, the bug is at the SERVER, not the local client, so this rules out oddities such as cached content etc.. at the local machine. One player has posted that uninstalling and reinstalling the casino still fails to unstick Hitman from this.
It could be that free spins are NOT the same as spins in the base game, but the result of a pre-determined payout that is displayed by a sequence of free spins. I have noticed a few things that seem to support this, even if only weakly.

1) "too many" naked spins "just happen to be" aligned with the bonus round, and frequent hits occur both before, and after, the bonus round with all the naked spins.
2) Bonus rounds with multiple retriggers seem to pay, on average, less per spin, making it look like the retriggers are "eye candy" rather than a genuine restart with 15 new "random" games. So many times I have had loads of retriggers, but the end total is still less than that I have had on many bonus rounds with no, or only one, retrigger. After a couple of retriggers, it seems to be endless naked spins, retrigger, and another sea of naked spins with perhaps the odd 3 in a line thrown in.
3) The frequency of two scatters appearing seems to be a predictor of how frequent bonus rounds appear - and it shouldn't be.

I think this is DEFINITELY the case. Perversely, there's far too many examples of great five symbol+wild hits in the free spins; the chances of hitting them within 15 free spins are stupid high... yet we see them here regularly.

Hit the bonus, slot decides your payout (this bit may be random!), reels spin and look pretty, total win is the pre-determined amount.

Here's your answers! (My personal opinion)

1. It's completely random. There are no 'cycles'.

2. It's completely random. The slot does not have a memory.

3 & 4. It's completely random.
However due to the laws of probability the longer you keep going without a feature the more probable it is to hit. *

5. Nothing.

6. They're completely random.

7. It's completely random.

8. It's completely random.

9. Jump around if it makes you happier, but it's completely random.

If you don't believe it's completely random - please don't play MG slots.

* Probable, not likely. (before someone starts arguing about that! :p)
The chance of the feature hitting is exactly the same on each & every spin.
