Most frustrating things on slots

    Inspired by psychogenes post where he cited Gonzos Quest as one of the most frustrating slots around I thought I would start a thread and see what everyone thinks. I know I have many pet hates! I think a lot of slot companies read these forums and maybe they will take notice :cool:

    There are so many different ways you can be wound up when you are spinning away, not all of them are necessary slot companies! The most common is simply going a long time without hitting the feature/bonus round. Once it gets over 200 spins I start to be annoyed, over 300 and I begin to get my tin foil hat out and start wondering if its rigged. Over 500 and I want to smash my laptop into a million pieces with a giant sledgehammer. However it gets worse.

    CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON - Getting the needless animation when you hit the target with no spins or respins left. WHY netent - I know my round is over and I cant win anymore and you are just rubbing salt into the wound - ITS POINTLESS! Even worse when the hit opens one of the new wilds - you get the whole new wild song and dance - wasting your time in the most annoying of manners. Please Net Ent spare a thought for how the players feel when losing our deposits!

    JURASSIC PARK - Specifically that spitting dinosaur feature. Holy crap that has to be the most frustrating slot feature ever designed. That little ****ard is just designed to infuriate! I wish I could book a holiday going on safari shooting those little buggers.

    "BIG WIN" ANIMATIONS ON 15xBET Nothing more needs to be said. Feels like a kick in the happy sack when you are on your third deposit without a bonus feature, you hit something that pays 15x bet in the base game and the bloody thing sounds a bell and informs you that you have won a BIG WIN!!! NO I HAVENT YOU STUPID PIECE OF ****.


    NOTABLE MENTION - "Error 2"/"This game is currently unavailable" all cheapo webbrowser game based rubbish like that. Even when you are having an enjoyable session where you are hitting bonus games this can pop up just to make it a nightmare. Multiplied x 100000 when you go to report it to cs and they ask if you have tried clearing your cookies.

    Anyone else got any things they find highly frustrating with slots? Game design or otherwise.

    Any slot that has the balls to say Congratulations! You have won 0 coins! after a horrific "bonus game".
    Makes me want to punch my monitor :mad:

    Also - I'm currently on over 2000 (two thousand) spins on Hall Of Gods without triggering the hammer bonus. A few different casinos.
    I harbour no ambitions of hitting the jackpot because I'm not from one of NetEnt's favourite countries, but I find it really strange and very frustrating. It's not exactly a rarity to trigger that bonus and I'm starting to get paranoid.

    Any animation that takes a few seconds and won't let you skip it. IE: Terminator 2's random T-800 feature...unless there is a scatter present for the free spins, it's the cue to go and put the kettle on or do something else for a minute.

    In fact, anything that slows the game down where you know you aren't actually going to get anything good. Game of Thrones - 2 scatters where you get 1, 2 or 3x - that type of thing. Similarly, feature animations where you know you haven't won. Like watching wilds expand on a no-win spin.

    Simmo! - just the other day I got £60 from 2 scatter on GoT (betting £1.20). I didn't think big wins were possible, but there you go :p

    Best thing to do is just hit refresh and it skips the animation. :thumbsup:

    A special mention should go to the old two scatters on the first two reels popping up....

    except when you've gone maybe 500 spins and are about to bust out and then you get scatters on the first two reels TWICE IN A ROW, almost like the slot is waterboarding you or something.

    My record is currently is three consecutive spins where scatters have popped up on the first two reels.

    And then when the the game has finished pissing about with the torturing, you can almost guarantee that on the next spins those 'missing' scatters will almost certainly appear on the last reels like some big F.U

    Also, that sort of inescapable sinking feeling you get on a session where your balance just dies a miserable death for no apparent reason and you just know that no matter what slot you switch to, that's all your getting for today Sonny Jim

    There's so many annoying things about slots - you could write a book about it!
    I'll add a couple here which immediately spring to mind, not yet mentioned above:

    South Park 2: The "Bonus Free-Spins" - takes forever to win 2/5 of crap-all :mad:
    (In fact, ALL the bonus rounds on this one are shite compared to South Park 1)

    Aliens: Taking like FOREVER to get to the Hive Feature, and then it's crap...

    Sparce Warts: WHY does this slot even exist? :confused:

    Any game with a Picking Feature which can end on your first pick giving you £0, or 2 free-spins @ x1, or something similarly crap :(

    Rival Gaming: Have got stuck in a rut for the last 2 years of ONLY producing 50-line slots. Where has the imagination and innovation which created the iSlots and great 20-line slots gone to?

    Immortal Romance: Sorry, but I just don't get it. Played it again a few days ago to see if I could work out what I am missing: 2 x Wild Desire both paid $0, and 10 free-spins @ x5 were pretty close to that too.

    Might be back with more whingeing later - you have been warned!

    For me, the most frustrating thing for any slot would be getting free spins/feature and it paying less than 10x etc. - further fuelled by more frustration if it took 200+ spins to get the feature in the first place.

    This right here. Especially that BITCH Sarah :mad:
    Her bonus round is far and away the worst I have ever played on any slot ever. It's like... broke or something. Constantly filling up reels 3 and 5 for no reason whatsoever. WHY!???

    Right TFTUT and the pointless target: here is your answer as I fumed about this from day 1-
    http://www.casinomeister.com/forums/showthread.php?t=61115&p=607251#post607251

    Jurassic I can't comment on as never played it - read the book when it came out, half-way through realized it was written by Crichton with Hollywood in mind as it read like a corny American film script (which of course it later transpired was correct!) so hate it.

    'Big WIn' animations, yes, the new IGT Cleopatra has this on 10x stake as do many of theirs, not big at all. MG have it on wins over 15x stake, again not big. The only software that has this right is WMS. Even Netent start their crap at 15x.

    Yes, and customer service telling us it's OUR fault their server has a bottleneck and high traffic....:mad:

    OK, my grumbles. TS2 you cannot get past the shitstorm. I check my balance, know what I've won BEFORE the graphic starts then have to sit a out a f*cking 1.5x stake pointless animation...:(
    Same with IR.
    St*rb*rst - just a game that should have been drowned at birth.
    (S)Hitman - that irritating 'pick-me' feature...:mad:
    Da Vinci Diamonds - try playing that on a laggy day.
    Terminator 2 - not seeing the flames (which I never have!) and knowing you're going to sit through 10 spins of shite.
    Moneyburst WMS games like Bruce Lee - the spin is over in just the 2x2 bit most times.

    Lot's of Netents do that.....MG most of them just go back to the game on giving 0 in the features.....but WMS at least has few games with the 10x bet win guarantee....

    Man I could totally fill up this thread with piles of stuff that drives me mad so I'll just put a few for now and maybe add to it after I've lost my deposit (again) later and in a more pissed off and sarcastic mind set which seems ideal for this thread :p

    Agree with the T2 comments - both, oh look its that red shite again and no sign of a feckin scatter - here come my 0.10p's and 0.15p's great, oh a feature, oh bollocks cold mode again, get on with it you tw%t.

    IR - reel one Sarah/Wild - reel two Sarah Wild (oooooo) reel 3 fucking scatter with Amber (so many times)

    Playboy, (yes I can turn volume off but like to play most games with it on) has to have the most irritating soundtrack ever.

    DOA - Screenies galore (look at my massive win) - yes my turn, here Jon have a wild on the last reel on the first spin and that's ya lot !

    JATB - Finally 500 spins and I get 3 treasure boxes (which pay me fuck all) oh look not a key in sight - bollox

    Go bananas - A monkey themed slot with no fucking monkeys - go figure

    Wish Master - Click, lose, click, lose, click, lose (and why is it the biggest money guzzler at Netent seems to be the one which spins so fast with never any lag hmmmmm)

    To be continued..... (unless I win later :p)

    Haha yeah totally agree! I particularly hate the slots that force you to see every single line on which you got a win and how much it was before making the next spin. Particularly annoying when you get a wild followed by low paying symbols, it can eat up like 30 seconds before you get another spin on some autoplay games :mad:

    I'm afraid that if I were to start listing (that's an ominous sign already) :eek: ALL the things about slots that annoy me......

    then this post would be longer than all of vinyl's posts at CM put together. :eek::eek:

    Fuck me, what a frightening thought :eek2:

    Oh well....at least the OP has given me something to do that will kill a few hours/days/weeks on this fine Easter Monday......
    it might even be a welcome source of therapy :)

    I'll be back with my "Rap Sheet" later.....;)

    OK Most Playtech slots get on my tits!! I know they can pay really big wins but IMHO they are far and few between. Playtech should be renamed Taketech (takes all your money). Several of their slots have that stupid animation feature that cannot be skipped even for the fecking micro wins (Panther Moon springs to mind). Great Blue, Penguin Vacation and Irish Luck take hundreds of spins before they hit and the bonus round can either be awesome or crap. If they are crap then your toast unless you have started with a fairly high bankroll.

    As for MG I hate with a passion GOT that slot has taken more of my cash than any other slot without giving anything back. It's surely capable of monster hits but I have seen one since it came out and I have played thousands and thousands of spins. So playing GOT = zero bank roll in about 5 minutes.

    I also agree with all previous posts. Game developers should read this thread before designing new slots and maybe they will come out with a decent one.

    Another handful of wind ups as promised :rolleyes:

    Jurassic Park - dum dum dum, yeah exciting music 'Extra Wilds' wooooo hoooooo, hang on a minute, just what extra fucking wilds are you talking out ere MG, should of gone to Specsavers :cool:

    Any MG 9-Liner - I swear If I see 2OAK 9's, Hammers, Monkeys, Trucks, Spy Sunglasses etc etc again, fuck off and drop me a 5OAK!!!!

    CFTBL - Go in the cabin and lock the door, should have done that the day before I discovered online gaming.

    Untamed Series, Saved Wilds, 2 on each reel apart from one random reel which has 3 saved wilds, No prizes for guessing where the next wild symbol is dropping another payless 'wild wipeout' get the fuck in!!! - oh look it didn't nudge AGAIN :mad: - A feature woohoooo, started and finished on 5x stake Christmas has come early again:D

    Its funny because for me, I do really well the odd occasion I play Playtech but I do not like their games, whereas net-ent literally ra*es me for every penny I have near daily.

    Not only can I not hit a bonus ever really with net-ent, when I do it pays between x4 and x15.

    I am in one of the moods lately where I might take a year away from slots, I had some pretty amazing wins a month or so ago, but since I cannot get near one and I am not one to chase losses so I will probably stop!

    Wait I have more to say here

    Slots like SCROOGE are the biggest rip off.

    I once fell for this cr*p.

    Spend hundreds to finally 'earn' a bonus that will pay about 20x.

    HA

    I really like the MG game Leagues of Fortune and have had some great wins on it but...I can't stand when you get the chests for the free spin rounds and you have to watch the ship go by and the tentacles flapping around repeatedly to find out how many free spins you are getting. I have to exit game and go back in so it skips it and my free spins are waiting for me.
