Have been playing the same MG slots for the past 8 months or so.Immortal,Thunder 2,Playboy and The Finer Reels.
I understand that these slots are of a high variance and have had my good and bad days with them all.
I made 4 deposits at different casinos over the last 3 days.50 Euro,40 Euro,100 Euro and 40 Euro.
The stake is always 30 cents for me as i prefer to get a run for my money.Anyway not 1 of my deposits lasted any time at all.I played all 4 slots at each casino and all robbed the cash within a very short period of time.
Usually 2 might be bad and the other 2 slots might keep you going for a while but not these last 3 days.
I dont mind the losing so much but i do expect a run for my money.
All were provided by Quickfire.
Is it a case of its the end of the month and they might be short on the profits.
Anyway is it time for a break from the casinos or is it time to bin these games ?
Hope nobody else has had the same experience over the last few days.

Don't tell me you're only playing those four games all the time.
You know they are high variance and you can have that losing strike over a year and not just a few days.

With just $40 I would probably stay and play just one of them at 30c bet, but that's me.

Why not try something else for a change? You will probably be surprised about winning a lot on other games instead:)

Yes i know i probably have MUG written over my forehead.I have tried other slots of course but find them quite boring.
Would love you to suggest a few if you do not mind.

Those that I am stucked with (because I'm just as you):p are BDBA, Centre Court (that's the best game I know), and all those clones of Thunderstruck1, Agent Jane blonde, Spring Break, Adventure Palace.
Then if I play a 30line game it's Deck the Halls.
25lines is Supe it up and Isis. They are clones. Also Beach babe, but that one I don't play so much.

I play a lot of more games but these are my favourits.
Also I bet very low because I want to have playtime. I have learned that I always give my winnings back anyway so why bet more;)

Those are good choices, especially the 9-liners. You coud also have a bit more fun by doing incremental betting like I do. IE: Do 50 or 100 spins at 0.09 on Thunderstruck and if you don't get the bonus, go up to 18, then 27. Those games give you the feature on average every 130 spins or so (can e a lot longer sometimes obviously) but you'll get a good run and some decent wins occasionally.

That's exactly how I play them :)

I don't know how many times I've been get really good winnings on them, especially when betting that low since I can do so much more spins that way. If the bigger winnings are what makes playing fun then why in the world bet so high that you risk losing too much money?

I am the same as others if I want long playtime I go to older slots same if I want to meet wagering, of the nine line slots tho I find Kathmandu gives a lot of playtime and can get a lot of good wins as free spins repeat often only downside is its not most exciting of slots, same as halloweenies the free spins repeat a lot and I never lose money fast on it

I have found the same thing with MG games. My favorites are many of the games you've mentioned. I use to wager between $3.60 - $9.00, and always get some nice returns. Over the past couple months I've experimented more with low rolling between 9 - 90 cents per spin, and have found wins to be scarce.

The strange thing is I have hit free spins so many times whilst low rolling, yet have never had a nice win. I've even had numerous free spin rounds where I've won $0! The only compensation is being able to laugh when the banner comes up saying congratulations, you won $0 in free spins! Especially sucks when it's your last few cents.

From my own experience, I've found low rolling on MG will only ever break even at best before eventually taking it all. I have had more luck low rolling on Netent, and the guys who make wildcat canyon?, games to be honest. I honestly think the only way to win and make a profit on MG is to wager no less than $3.60 a spin. This is just my opinion of course, but MG games were my gateway game, and the ones I know the best, so I can assure you my opinion comes from plenty of playing experience at the very least.

I won't be low rolling on MG anymore. Unfortunately you need a really big win to get anywhere and they're all too rare to rely on. If you were going to low roll on MG, I'd suggest the games with bonus rounds as well as free spins, such as tomb raider, mermaids and Halloweenies, but in saying that, these have all been tighter than usual for me lately.

I thin a lot of that has to do with an individual's expectations (and the variance obviously). It's easier to stop and walk away with $200 when you are betting $3.60 because you can do something decent with that. If you are betting 0.36 and get $20 I think it's easier to play on because $20 barely buys you a couple of beers and a burger LOL.

The clever gambler who plays solely to win will set a realistic target and perhaps walk away with 2x their deposit but for most of us who play slots, we play for big wins or at least, as the OP says, to be entertained for an hour or two. I don't want to stop after 5 minutes when I hit a big win so I'll normally lose a load of it back over the next 55 minutes until I feel I have been entertained aswell.

I should stress that I don't recommend anyone plays at a minimum $3.60 per spin or higher, if they can't afford to, as there is still every chance you will lose big, as there is you winning big on these high variance games.

Sorry if my previous post came across as a reckless recommendation, and I stress again, it is just my opinion based on my own playing experience.

Always play within your means. :thumbsup:

You could also try Hellboy, I have seen quite alot of tasty wins on that one. Tomb Raider 1 and Tomb Raider 2. You could also try Alaskan Fishing its a fun 243 liner. Also I have to suggest Kathmandu because it throws out free spins quite often and can sometimes pay out good. I played it the other day and got free spins after like 15 spins and won 120x bet on it during the freespins. Good luck with your future slotting!

Foil hat on the way. The 'little man' controlling payouts has just turned the dial down at MG because their casinos want an end-of-the-month fillip to their take. If you think this you should really never touch an online slot again.

Dunover,if you had been in my situation you may question anything for the run being so bad.Of course i have had bad runs before but for example my 100 euro deposit i played 7 different slots and for my 25 or 30 cent play i had 122.00 of play.
The others were slightly better but not much.
But maybe your right it just might be time to have a long long break well until next Thursday lol.

Cashanova is one of my favourite games. You seldom get a huge win (once in a while with a 5x multiplier in egg bonus), but bonuses are usually frequent enough to keep playing for a bit. Very rare to go more than 200 spins without one.

Jolly Jester has been good to me, and I like Sunset Showdown too.

I find Battlestar Galactica less volatile than most of the other 243 way slots if you really enjoy them.

I agree about the Thunderstruck and clones others have mentioned. Recently redeemed a $10 comp and after a couple of bonus rounds on Ladies' Night raised my bet to 36 cents, hit five scatters for $180. Led to a very long play session for me, albeit my play on 243 line slots ate it all eventually.
