    Can't find the old thread from last year so I'm posting a new one. It happened to me again yesterday: playing a new game and hitting the max bet button by mistake instead of the "coin size" one, for a $25 spin on a $60 balance.

    Come on now! It's bad enough that we have to change the coin size every time that we load a slot, please don't place the small button right next to the max bet one that will steal half your bankroll if you accidentally click on it! Talk about a piss poor design!

    I agree - it really is poor form to place a max button mere fractions form the spin button - it's just asking for headaches, and it's certainly avoidable way back in the early design stages.

    Which casino was this? and which game?

    I have only been playing at GUTS lately and noticed most of them are set between $2 - $5 but it could be a game I do not play.

    A lot of land based casinos seem to have opted for this as well - and it's worse, because so many no longer have physical buttons, but video computer buttons on the panel...which have hair triggers...I mean, even the bloody players card bungee can trigger it, which it oh-so-conveniently drapes across.

    Guts (Thunderfist) but they are all the same IIRC.

    Here's a screenshot of when you load the slot. As you can see, coin value is $0.10 and you have to change that if you don't want to play at least $2.50/spin. If you hit max bet at this point, it's a $25 spin.

    Of all the software I have played only Netent does not set the bet and coin size to the ones that were played previously. MG, RTG Playtech, Crypto all set the bet sizes to those previously played. Needless to say, I had been suckered to place bets quite big relative to bankroll. Its the nature of any gambler. Playing right after you download the slot and especially true after a tiring day at work.

    Yeah its good idea to watch out for when you just load game. Always double check bet size, adjust if requires before you start playing. There not much you can do but having max bet too close to other button is a bad idea of course though. I agree to that! I think it would be a LOT safer to remove Max Bet button altogether and only leave out as a normal spin button and just bet size/coin size button. So that way it can reduce accident prone especially for those who is with sticky bonus. If you are on a sticky bonus, if you accidentally bet too high once you can just stop playing, go to live chat straight away and let them know to reverse it back for you so it does not void the term/condition bonus.

    I can live with the max. bet on Microgaming, as that one leaves the coinsize as it is and only goes to max. coins.
    It can be useful for people if a slot is hot, I can imagine people using it.

    But the NetEnt Max. bet also raises the coinsize to max. and thus so triggers a for most people INSANE spin, often a huge chunk of the balance.
    Ofcourse you can get lucky, but it really feels like a trap, as no one exept for a few ultra highrollers will play 25.- per spin or more.

    So why is that button there in the first place?
    And agreed it should be fixed/removed.

    Errrr.. no it doesn't!

    I have hit "Max Bet" both by accident and on purpose on NetEnt slots and it has NEVER changed the coin size.
    Which slot do you think you saw that on?

    I don't want to answer for this guy but while it doesn't change the coin size during the play, it does reset to $0.10 every time that you load the slot. That's when you have to be extra careful because you have to lower your coin size AND to not click that max bet button. After many hours of play, I tend to become more careless and got caught twice in the last year. It's my fault, but I'm not alone. It IS poor design.

    My bad, it doesnt.. :oops:

    But it does reset to default (which is too high for me) every time you log in to a game, thats especially annoying at Mr. Green, where you get kicked out of your game after every hour just to tell you that you played for xx hours.
    Then you need to open the game again, and thats when I usually forget to change the coinsize back.

    The games do remember your preferences, like quickspin enabled or spacebar to spin, so why not the preferred coinsize?:confused:

    I know all too well about it...

    Got disconnected at Betsafe and forgot to change my betsize - Looked again and half my balance was gone as I had DOA on auto play for $2.25 a spin. Disastrous for a bankroll ;)

    NetEnt implemented the 'remember my betsize' on that stupid chicken game.... Hope they can implement it on other slots.

    Really, I would love to take a survey from Netent players. Whoever has not bet more than at least once due to this design please respond.

    Not too happy about it either, but since the one time it depleted all of my balance (like Nate put it on auto) in less then a minute, it never happened again, since i am now way too wary ...
    I do agree with Balth and the rest that responded that this should be fixed, Netent is one of the big guys now, and they should set standards: instead of pushing out a lot of new money eaters no one is waiting for, they should get their development team working on this, i personally can't imagine it being hard.

    That statement says a lot - Instead of improving a great product, Development teams will spend more time on developing ways to fleece you faster - That's what they get paid for - to come up with innovative ideas and make slots that outperform previous releases in terms of revenue.

    NetEnt should actually release a new slogan 'Ensuring you don't win BIG since 2012' :rolleyes:

    I wouldn't hold my breath on the improvement though. We have already seen how difficult it is for MG to fix their flash problems.

    It happens to the best of us. And it happens to me too :)

    I had it bad on Ghost Pirates, where the Max bet button is directly below the spin button.
    I've set auto spins, then pressed play and popped off to fetch the Pringles.

    On my return I'm amazed to see my 300 balance has dropped to less than 100 in no time.
    I would have complained to someone, anyone, or at least let out a little sigh, but before i could stop it I decided (being a slot player), this must be fate!
    So I let it play through my balance.
    It ran through it pretty quickly without another win, absolutely nothing, until...
    On the very last spin, I watched in disbelief as the reels all dropped in one by one and then... Yes, You guessed it, I won absolutely nothing.

    I've passed this thread onto NetEnt, they do listen.

    I've had the coin size change when switching a game into full screen mode too. I was not happy.
