My new Nemesis Gonzo's Quest. WTF?

    After my traumas with Ironman my new nemesis is Gonzo's Quest which recently has given me results I never thought possible.

    I am not only losing but managing to trigger the bonus round every thousand spins if I'm lucky and this has gone on over many thousands of spins.
    It is pretty unusual to go over 500 spins without hitting a bonus round even if it is naff but over a thousand is rare. To do it 5 times consecutively on the same slot? So like 6 triggers in 60000 spins...
    I find that very hard to put down to chance.

    We all have bad rounds where we can't hit anything but I to put it into perspective, I guarantee you pick any video slot with free spins and you will hit the bonus within a thousand spins and very likely within 500.
    In fact you could likely play all night on the same slot and not go a thousand spins without a bonus trigger but how about doing that 5 times consecutively?

    To cap it off I am playing the max 20 lines which means if 3 bonus symbols land on 1st 3 reels I have a 20/27 chance of making the trigger (actually higher because any win would give an extra chance)
    So how is it that I am hitting any 3 on a non paying line twice as often as on a paying line?
    Seems rather far fetched again.

    Tonight I had already gone over 800 spins without hitting again when played another $50 at 40c a spin and still couldn't hit, crazy. I went through $150 at 60c a spin without hitting last night as well and so on and on and on and on.
    You expect to get a feature playing 40c a spin with $50 at bad times but on a slot that has already gone so long without hitting , again!
    If I hit 25 free spin rounds in 100 spins then it might even out LOL.

    Don't get me wrong I know this slot is high variance and I enjoy it and have won on it other times but after runs like this it makes me suspicious.

    Anyone else experienced anything similar with this slot and what would you guess the probability of a trigger are?
    I would say it is a little higher than most slots, maybe 1 in 180 or something but maybe it is much higher?

    I rarely play this slot for this very reason. The bonus is super hard to hit, at least it has been for me - so I share your views.

    On top of this I can spend hundreds getting the bonus and it pays nothing.

    I have burned badly in the past as well on this slot mate. As I though keep spinning and I will get a big win with the feature.

    Seems best thing to do with this slot is say You make £100 deposit spend only half or say I will do 100 spins at 0,40 and leave it with that. If you get feature happy days if not leave it.

    You could also go even lover and say 50 spins. Or put a limit in your balance. As it might pay out some good wins and you can carry on for "free" in case you get over your deposit amount.

    Just good advise I think for this slot :thumbsup:

    Slots can and will be absolutely brutal when on a bad run.
    You are not guarenteed a free spins round after an x amount of spins.
    You could play gonzo's quest for 10 more sessions and have the same experience over and over again.
    However very unlikely, but possible yes.

    For example I am on a brutal run. Starting with Jurassic Park. I have lost about 2000€ in 3 sessions playing 1€ a spin.
    My last 20 free spins round all paid under 15x bet. Godawful, yes.

    I changed to a 'lower' variance slot secret of the stones and lost 350€ at 1€ a spin without even once hitting the free spins. I think I may have played close to 100000 spins on this slot and never had this happen. But it happened last night and it may happen tomorrow...

    Therefore changed to RTG slots tonight. Playing loose caboose at 1€ a spin I first lost 400€ before hitting the first free spins round which paid 2xbet.

    How unlikely it may seem but yes it really can be that bad. You can expect anything when playing slots. There are no guarentees and runs can be brutal.
    However tomorrow I can hit a 4000x BET on DOA. Also very unlikely, but possible, yes.

    That is the nature of gambling online slots.

    That is truly brutal, I feel for you.
    Yes I have had shocking runs of deposits being gobbled up no matter what game I play too and so I tend not to make more than 1 follow up deposit because in my experience things don't turn around when they are that cold.

    I guess we can out anything down to chance no matter how unlikely but at what point do you get suspicious that the TRTP may have been lowered?
    Just in time for Christmas and all :p

    I will say that my most brutal runs have always come after a good cashout - maybe not very next deposit but soon after. More coincidence perhaps.

    I guess we can never know or never prove anything so it is just a case of stop playing if we lode trust.

    Hoping you have better luck soon.

    I think that is good advice.
    chasing losses on the same slot seems to be the worse thing one can do as it just makes you angry and poor at the same time. :oops:

    For instance today Got x4 features on IR at 30p play,
    PayOut,
    Round 1, £1.35
    Round 2, £4.59
    Round 3, £4.17
    Round 4, £4.10

    Now if thats not bad luck I do not no what is, Lucks got to change soon

    Yes stay away from Gonzo's Quest because Gonzo is on a quest for your money and he will get it all if you let him.

    I find with this slot that if its not hot almost instantly its not worth staying on because if your balance has dropped to far it will take a minor miracle to recover it. The bonus round triggers the most rare out of all the netent games I have played (and they all tend to trigger less than MG slots in my personal experience) and the base game when its cold you will hardly get anything juicy as theres no x2 or x3 wilds and the rolling reel for me anyway barely goes anywhere above x2 and when it does its always the common symbols and not the unique ones.

    I used to have minor success when I had no clue about this slot but now that I have played it a few more times over the last month or so I only tend to play for about 50 spins and see if I can hit the bonus feature before I move on. This is not a slot that is worth burning out your balance for, I'd rather go bust on IR or JATB because of the potential to get decent wins fast.

    I don't play it very much, but I've had the same sort of luck on Gonzo's as any other slot - in fact, I rate it as a "goodie", not a "baddie".
    I have certainly never experienced anything like as bad as the OP - though I would have given up way before 1,000 spins anyway, as a bit like DaVinci's Diamonds, sometimes it feels like getting the free-spins is impossible!

    Looking back at my screenshots, I have had 7 wins over x100, which is pretty good for a slot I don't play much.

    Yeah I have had some good hits on it in the past, though more often than not,after being beaten up by it first. :oops:

    Judging by others post it sounds like a slot that is either hot or cold with little middle ground so I am going to cut my losses on it for now and maybe try again in a few weeks.

    Gonzo's quest is changed, i have played gonzo for maybe 6 years now and this year netent definalty have changed this slot.

    They also have changed the slot layout the freespin (bonus gold symbol) with (payline gold) symbol, while before you would hit the freespin now its 0 win.

    I hate this game as well.

    I have however learned that if I lose around £20 on it, I move on because i find it boring.

    Once I lost hundreds on this game. I don't really play it now.

    I used to play Gonzo a lot, but then I went without free spins for a few months. And I played hundreds of spins weekly at several casinos.
    It was just beyond funny, same as Jack and the Beanstalk. The last straw was wasting a good win from CFTBL on JATB and hitting FS on last €4 spin,
    just to win 2x bet. I never played Gonzo or Jack since, unless it's free spins from a casino.

    Old thread, but one thing hasn't changed: Gonzo is still a bad game. It never used to be though, so perhaps not everybody can be wrong in their recent assessment of it.

    It sure as hell was always high-variance, but triggering the bonus wasn't as hard, plus you could say with certainty that £20 could last you a couple of hours on it. But even in its heyday, going on insane dry spells wasn't uncommon, even though more often than not it seemed to 'recompense' you with a good bonus round, eventually.

    Don't think I'd touch it nowadays, I want to preserve my good memories. And as for the recent update on this slot, it's all but game-breaking with its constant win interruptions :mad::what:
