My worst ever bonus (yeah, Bonanza)

I decided to have a go on Bonanza last night, started off on £0.60 spins, base game was not too bad, but 500 spins in no bonus.
I upped to £0.80 and carried on to 1300 spins, still no bonus and my £400 deposit was gone.
Deposited another £300.00 and upped to a pound a spin, after only 30 odd spins the bonus dropped in, just the normal 12 spin one. After 7 spins I was only on a 3x multiplier when it retriggered, so five extra spins, great I thought, it's going to pick up now, and then only two spins later it retriggered again! So in effect I was now playing a 22 spin bonus, this has to pay right?!.... Does it fuck, the multiplier went up to the dizzy heights of 5x, dead spin after dead spin.... In the end it paid me.... Wait for it...... £4.55 four and a half X.... WTF! Off 22 spins!

Anyway, I carried on sticking to one pound spins, because normally the next bonus tends to come in quicker than the first, and it did, and unbelievably it was a cascade of the G O L D followed by two plus fives, so twenty two spins again! It's got to pay now surely, just to make up for the vile shite of the last bonus, well this time it paid 81x which in my opinion is still fucking awful off 22 spins... Fuck you BTG!

Megacrap I call them, there all the same max spins I play if I can be bothered is 200.
I find they're a cash cow for the casinos.

I thought it was just me it was playing awful for, I've swore never to play it again (but even I know that's a lie), its not that it won't bonus for me (that's normal, gone over 3000 spins a few times, but normal makes up for it with several quick bonuses after a long dead spell) but past few months its just stolen balances.

I have to believe now its been changed, over 20 sessions where I barely managed 60% RTP for a slot that used to be king for wagering. It ate 500x stake last week across 2 casinos very quickly. Survivor also seems to play awful these days as well.

Over 3K spins (granted over a long(ish) time frame and the bitch still won't bonus for me.

The GOL trolling this afternoon was the worst I've ever seen it, most of the times there wasn't even a cascade chance for it not to drop me the D :mad:
Strangely enough I noticed last night that I had never seen so many GOL, without dropping the D. Another thing lately is the 117 showing reasonably often but being a dead spin 90% of the time. No doubt this slot goes through phases but this one feels over controlled, whereas usually you can almost convince yourself it’s random.

If my deposit is half decent I alternate between various stakes for 50 spins to see which one feels better. Last night it was not great on 60p and a quid so upped to 2 quid for the last 50 as was bored and it was like a new lease of life. Same for quids being dead and then 40p cascades with only one space and it falls in :p

What Iv noticed this week is I can’t hit it on NYX but only the Quickfire :rolleyes:

Worst bonus is a toss up between 75p on four quid or 0 on two quid

6hrs today on Sky Vegas for no feature.

I defended this game in another thread after I’d tried a few others.

Over a grand down in 3 days with one feature over just 4 slots without ever going past 60p stake.

Serious rethink required after nonsense like that.

£1,040 down on 20/30/40/60p stakes for one feature. Yes I typed it again because I still can’t quite believe it myself.

The one feature by the way paid £3 on 60p stake.

Ive just watched Dazzas latest to tilt me even more.

brutal slot, i have no idea of how much have i lost on this crap.
another thing I hate about this slot is the lag that occurs after one or more cascades, and if this happens the winnings are over ... when the word 'gold' is about to arrive the reels seem to move differently, more fast. Long time trashed slot, along with most megaways

Changed to DOA 2 and had all the hats twice in less than 50 spins.

16 quid more than Bonanza has paid all week!! :laugh:

I've had a zero bonus before, pretty much stopped playing it after that, think it was a £2 stake and it took around 1000 spins and 300x stake to get it. Have a very rare session now and then, maybe once a month, but only with excess winnings, like when I withdraw and leave a bit to play with, when I'm bored with other games will have a bash on it now and then.

No doubt it’s playing worse than I have ever seen it. It’s either had a makeover or it’s going through one of its dead patches. It did the same a year ago but from memory not as bad as right now!!!!!!

Hang on a minute, where is the endless stream of screenshots you was posting? your "method" not working no more? :(

On a side note I have found it plays in good moods and bad and it don't always follow suit to what others are experiencing, just as if it was random after all ;)

doa2 or 1 on minimum stake would of given a better return.

i mean those games can and do pay, bonanza Just doesn’t ever.

It’s madness just continuing, just out of interest what’s your best or anyone’s best base game hit?.

And NO BTG, not your fabled rogue employee’s

My best base win was a sea of diamonds Ben: 24 ways x6 for 1200x : £480 for a 40p spin and I’d only been playing a couple of minutes.
I once had the screen turn almost green with jacks and that was over 700x stake.

LOL....30 quid deposit today, started off at 60p spins, kept raining features in a couple of 250x-ish, a few 100-150x, a couple of 50x and a couple of paltry ones, 9 in all. Cashed out £550 profit from my peak of 830-ish. Funny that the worst of all the features was 8x and came when I raised to £2 a spin for 50 spins.

So stuck 40 in tonight played at 60p spins, got another 8 features peak balance 300-odd, cashed out 160. It was weird, as the features just 'topped up' my bankroll but I never got really well up like this morning's video.

So 17 features today from about 70 L's.

See I’ve been playing as long as the rest, idiotic amount of spins and my best base game I can’t even remember, had 500x in the bonus (big wow) gonzo would smash it..

yeah I’ll play it now and again, but the love for a slot where the known biggest ever win was a open con from BTG themselves says it all.

not to mention the utter dregs they use to promote there slots @dunover not you, it’s just not cricket.

You trying to deliberately wind me up or what ffs.

Least I got my £25 cash back to rattle through. Just done another ton on 40p and guess what. No feature.

Beat base game hit was 1600x on a quid; mass of red rubies on 117k MW. In the B thread somewhere.

Second best was 800x on a quid with diamonds.

Beautiful hits, Ive been nowhere close in the base.
I guess it’s good in a way to know it’s possible, I’ve had some beautiful base game hits on donuts, but it’s always when clearing the sodding balance lol!

also my corona cooking you will like this evening, just watching the end of my film and I’ll post it haha

Did you guys know there are other slots if your "favorite" isn't playing nice? I know I know... It took me a while too to transist from always just opening Bonanza to have a look around the casino lobby :eek2:
Its a terrible disease.

It goes through bad patches that is for sure but the only reason it’s so noticed is because it’s one of the most played. Put the same amount of spins through any slot and 99% of the time you’ll come out worse off.

For the record and members who say it never pays, I beg to differ. I have got literally hundreds of these and that’s not an exaggeration!!!!
