playing slots online today -- a video slot 25 lines 5 reels with both scatter and substitute feature. minimum bet $1.25 (.05 per line). does it seem possible to have played it 28-30 spins of differing bets for a total of about $68 and the thing not pay a single penny during all those spins? (pls don't ask why i didn't leave sooner lol).

the paytable was hard to follow, paylines not marked very well (or at all, i'll double check) but several times i thought i had for sure hit the scatters or some other payout, but nothing. just seems out of the ordinary to me.

any thought would be appreciated - thanks.

What casino were you playing at, and what game was it?

If it was a Microgaming casino and you were playing Cashville, I would say that this is most definitely possible. If it was a Realtime Gaming or Playtech game, this is par for the course.

Are you completely 100% sure that you didn't even get back a couple of nickels here and there on some of the spins?

Also, see if you can get any screenshots of combinations that you think are winning combinations but did not pay. Try it in free or fun mode before spending any more money.

If it was an MG slot, go to "Playcheck" and have a look in there - it should confirm it.

i've pulled the records...looks like i won 3 times. funny how you don't remember those! i still will go back and review the screen shots again with a fresh eye in the next day or so. some of them i still can't figure out why they weren't winners.
thanks for the responses.

I don't know of any MG 25-line slot with a minimum of 5c/line :confused: - so which software was it & which slot?

Another thought - are you sure you were playing all 25-lines?
(If you were playing less (say 5 or 9) you would get far fewer hits).

Unless of course you were playing Isis - the tightest slot in the world! :eek:
