After a great £2700 win at .45p spins on DOA last month, and a very nice £900 win on Fish Party, I moved onto some Novomatic slots...have had nice wins before and had seen some nice wins on Captain Venture on You Tube etc, so with a nice roll started at £.80p spins...500 spins later no feature so move up to £1 spins...500 more spins...no feature!

Finally get a feature after about 1100 spins and hit bare minimum 100X for one of these slots, then I hope for a decent feature, nearly another 1000 spins, poor feature and repeat...£1900 later I give up...

Really makes me feel like blocking all casino's, what happened to Novomatic nice bonus...tin hat theory they are all connected and know I had won.

Agree Novo seem to be all or nothing (mostly nothing :mad:) with no 'middle ground'

When I first got access to these as UK player, I got features fairly easily and they'd pretty much always re-trigger, sometimes several times.

It does ineed seem to me as though they have a memory as ever since I get pretty much mashed up, especailly Captain Venture as you mention.

First visit I hit a 609x FS round, ever since it beats me up!

PS: What game did you win £2700 on 0.45p bet :eek: (Has to be DOA :confused:)

Yes sorry just edited...yes was unreal 6000x on DOA, and hey you are spot on...I hit brilliant free spins at first on Novamatic, on Fairy Queen, Book Of Ra etc...and then could not believe what happened on Captain Venture, 100% these slots have a memory whatever the naysayers say on here.

But then should we chase again? get it back? vicious circle as we know...well I won't be able to chase the Captain as I blocked Energy Casino.

What I tend to do with these is FORCE myself to stop / change game after a limit I decide on before I start.

I also keep my bets small as we all know these Novo games can hit well without having to do monster bet sizes.

I tend to go for £10er or so on 0.30p bets, if its going well, I'll up to 0.40/0.50 (but rarely)

Won't stay on these per game very long though, especially if there is no sign of repeating 2 x scatters (convinced myself this is a sign a feature is not too far away :rolleyes: - works about as much as it doesn't :p)

If things are going to shit then I'll drop to the 10 - liners on 10p bets, gets boring appreciated but has helped to build back up slowly and steadily so I can get bet size back up higher.

Another thing I noticed with Novo is that once you had a feature or bonus round it is VERY rare that you will get another one quickly (even if the bonus was crap) seems to take like forever.

In a tin foil attempt to over come this, I will close the game a few spins after the bonus, play something else for 5 minutes and go back (again works as often as it doesn't lol)

Novomatic are brutal at times. I only started playing them in late August, but I've learned some harsh lessons already....to the extent that a couple of them are on my never play again list after just one session on them. Namely Lucky Rose and Beetle Mania.

But I've had worse than what I had on those two games....

Went to Book of Ra with £130. Betting 20p a spin, I dropped to £50.....no bonus round. Tilted as fuck, I upped my bets to 50p a spin.
I busted without seeing a bonus round. Livid.

Lost £100 on Lucky Lay's Charm on 50p bets....no bonus round. That's not especially bad in comparison, but it was still a rough and frustrating ride.

But the worst of all...

Dolphin's Pearl. £214 lost on 30p bets without a bonus round. Then when I finally got the bonus round, it paid £8 :mad:

But even that isn't my worst ever experience on slots. The worst came on a Play N' Go slot....

Book Of Dead. Balance at £700. 30p bets. 1600 spins and nearly two hours later, I finally got a bonus round with my balance at.....£450 :mad::mad:

£250 gone on 30p bets without a bonus round. I didn't think that was even possible....on ANY slot.

This year has given me more eye-opening beatdowns than I would care to be on the receiving end of.

And to think I haven't played Phantom's Tomb and Captain Venture yet. I'm not sure I even want to.

Fuck me ^^ and I thought I had it rough on those games you mention.

That was a harsh read and I'd say my 'pain' is about 4/10 of that, although my roughest ride has to be the same game in Dolphin's Pearl.

Over 2,300 spins the other night, had top 5OAk (Ray with Wild?) along the way and also 5OAK Stripey fish. BUT NO FEATURE. Yes when it came Jon was spot on again, no re-trigger and about 30x :mad:

PS: Welcome to CM 'Newbie' :p :p

Sorry, you know me mate just couldn't resist that one :oops:

Edit: PS - Pharaoh's Tomb is nothing like we see in the videos on here lol

Novo can be brutal really brutal so they dont need to remember anything. Variance and the inbuilt maths model takes care of that one.

Example Rumple - one the "kinder" slots Variance wise can go on a bender where you can go 100s if not 10s of 100s of spins with no bonus. Katanga or what ever its called is another do or die slot.

These games need to be approached with ultra caution! as pretty much all of them can destroy any balance. But then again some of my best hits in the past few years have been on Novo.
When they pay they can pay massive. And sure some of the games (the newer ones) are garbage but the older ones, Lady Lucky Charms etc if in a kind mood can give pay dirt.

Saying that my balance was wiped out last night (Playing drunk! ) at Bell Fruit casino - within around an hour. :mad:

I have an extreme love / hate relationship with these beasts. Which should have a health warning on them. But still like a fool I play them :eek2::)

This is my highest in terms of 'x'

Screenshot 2016-12-02 19.18.13.jpg

Money wise is around £90 on 0.30p. IIRC

Full video on my YT channel if the stake doesn't bore you lol.

Agreed! :D

that can be the opening £100 of your next video.

Tomorrow will do :p

I think he would rather give the £100 to his missus to be honest. *

* I opted for the cleaner thought of the two that instantly sprang to mind :p
