Payola @ 3Dice - No Moe Gold Records

First off, I would like to say that I solely play the Payola slot
game at 3Dice. Since I ONLY play that game, I've
seen ultra tightness in the month of September with getting gold records
in the bonus stage. Before September, the gold records would get played
way more frequently. I have kept tabs on my Windows Notepad.

I play for real money and fun money. Now, with over $8,000 wagered so far
using fun money betting $1.00-$2.00 a hit, 7 times out of 10, I got the black
records to play. The rest were silver and maybe 1 platinum.

I honestly believe that 3Dice has heavily cracked down on players
getting 72 spins with a gold record.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Enzo?

I think you need to rack up quite a few more bonus round than 10 to make any kind of judgement.

I actually got my first gold record a few weeks ago, after maybe 40 or so bonus rounds....which seemed pretty fair to me.

I try not to get too excited though when I get the bonus round...they usually don't pay a whole lot....even with 72 spins.

Well, I play Payola, Tut and Medieval Moolah most often at 3dice. I have racked over 32000 spins in real in a short space of time on Payola alone. My current RTP for 32k worth of Spins is just under 90% or in the region of 89%.

It takes a while to get the Gold Record, BUT, it may not pay even 10x your bet. Last night I spun about 500 spins with an average bet of $2. Got the 16 Spins with a retrig of 4 Balls (16 spins) and the total payout was bet x 20. Got the feature one more time (maybe 2) both 16 spins only and it too paid bet x20 or less.

Total: Approximately 500 spins - 3 features - Peaked above start balance by about $10 - $15 and it cost more than $100 on each occasion to win $40 or less. If you divide the number of FS hits by the spins played- You are looking at an average of 1 FS game per 150 Spins (Seriously Bad for a medium variance Game) RTP for the session after querying - 60%

Utterly disappointed to say the least.

I cant really comment as I DISLIKE the game and will only play it usually if nothing else is playing...

Not to derail but we need new slots over there! A zombie slot would be perfect! Enzo how about it?:nod:

That's a very true statement, Funeral.

You would think with 72 spins, you should at least get 100X+ your wager...
Like getting to the last round on Fortune Falls.

One time I had the gold record twice in a bonus round and only ended
up with $36 off a 0.80 wager.

I actually get the gold record quite often in real and tourney play. I do find however that the number of spins you get on that game have zero relevance on the pay out. If the game is going to pay its gonna pay regardless of how many spins you get. One day I did hundreds of spins at varying bet amounts and my balance just went down and down and down, the next day I spun once and hit nearly $200 on a 60 cent bet. So its very random.

But I agree. We need more games!!

It is important to keep tabs. If you state that you have had a 'Bad Run' there should be enough stats / spins for you to back up that basis. I often see people complaining they didnt win something in 25 or 50 spins... Long term play and more spins are a more accurate reflection of where you stand.

Take KasinoKing as an Example... (Im not as good as him:p) but he logs all his sessions and has been doing so for many years... He has great results too! :)

This is the only slot I ever play these days. I don't know why I like it so much, I think because the feature is not too difficult to hit.

I have went 20 features in a row were it picked 16 every time, but I recently had 5 golds in a row in one feature. Both were probably as likely as each other

What i REALLY dont like about this slot is hitting 5 scatters. I've hit it twice, both times inside free spins and that leaves you feeling like you've hit big... but both times it picked 16 spins and won next to nothing.

I agree.,.I really dislike that game also...It is so slow......The bonus rounds are a joke..I have tried it several times..I did get the gold record and got a payout of around 18.00 on a 1.00, bet...pitiful...I play mostly moohlah and occasionally tuts and stick shifters...I also agree, we need some new games??? Come on Enzo...:D

I had a few weeks of not getting any gold records and havent retriggered in a few weeks. When i first signed up about a month ago I was hitting the gold records and re-triggering gold records a lot of times. I have also hit the 4 disco balls tons of times and once hit 5 disco balls. Every time I had got 4 or 5 disco balls I got the black records. I got 4 disco balls tonight and got a gold record and won about 100.00 from betting 60 cents per spin. I think the problem is that not a lot of people play this game. You can see the stats on their website and see this is not a high paying game, but this could be the fact not a lot of people play it. It is also my favorite game and I play it nonstop. I have however been playing super suits and won 150.00 earlier betting 45 cents because I got all the way to x12 multilpier. My biggest wins have been on super suites and squirrel valley.

hi thats the way payola is , i play it often but i dont go on about it not giving me those golden discs all the time , if that was the case it would be bad for other players who couldnt hit anything on it , it seems ok to me. last night i had a great time at 3 dice & cashed out, as normal cashout was superfast least your getting playtime & hitting the feature , sometimes thats better than hitting nothing ask anyone most people would like more game time )

That is a poor return honestly... I believe features should be designed to achieve the maximum when you get the 'Top Scatter Award'... I have also got 5 scatters once... paid horrendously low...

Speaking of which, i got 5 keys on Moolah and it paid $14...

Anyways, still my fav game... but the payouts and dry spells sometimes suck for its variance level.

I agree Nate. As long as players accept these kinds of returns the only winner is the casino. I still play at 3Dice but I have cut back to almost 99% of my play there because of the dry spells and lousy returns on something that should be an exciting event for the player...the piss poor bonus rounds they give just as most of the casinos do nowadays...and think this is ok because players continue to accept this...instead of voting with their wallets, they choose to be abused by these casinos..

I understand the eternal hope on these hits...I just fell for it again...but believe me..I think I am becoming a cynic...I hate to be beaten down so badly when I wanted to believe so much..and then the promise of a good session...I broke my own faith in myself and believed...and got splattered..

I still wonder how these casinos justify paying back pennies when it costs hundreds of dollars to catch a bonus and that is the object of playing these games...for the ultimate hit..the bonus round to get a nice little change..not a slap in the face..

Ahh well, as long as there are players (I am guilty too since I fell for the spiel again) willing to toss away money..there will be casinos willing to sucker punch us and laugh all the way to the bank on our dime..

Silcnlayc, You couldn't be anymore spot-on. You've got a new fan.;)

But their excuse will always be, "Lady Luck just wasn't on your side this time".:rolleyes:
But how will Lady Luck ever be with such piss poor returns and empty feelings when you feel like you've hit it big.

Hit em' where it hurts!

Who wouldn't be disappointed??... I mean, you play thousands of spins just to get a RARE hit like that and it pays squat... lol.. I was :mad: :mad: !!!!

Also, the 5 Balls on Payola also gave 16 spins ;( and paid close to 5-10x bet
