    Hiya :)

    Sorry for making a thread about this im sure most of you could care less but its a way for me to close a chapter and start fresh


    I just want to say thanks for all the friendly people I have met in my time here. Even to the ones I butted heads with.

    I dont want to go into a huge spiel or throw mud.

    The reason for me quitting is what I allowed happen. I played a slot that I think everyone should stay away from. And last night something happened with it that just took all the air out of me.

    I feel like the last 4 weeks of my gaming with all the new slots was a huge mistake. I spoke about them on the forum as jackpot slots and how they have changed. It turned into a test to just see if they were really that bad. Into a chase that I couldnt believe I had 475 out of 500 bonuses pay under 20x or something along those lines.

    And finally, I feel casino's are taking us for granted. Long gone are they days where loyalty matters.

    Im a firm believer, if you are going cry about things and dont like them, you should do something about it. For me, I have closed every single gaming account aside from 2. 2 of them I have left open but am on a TAB in case i change my mind later on down the road.

    I feel like my posts have become way too negative and poisonous and its not good for the forum or people reading it.

    I have contacted my work and have increased my hours back to full time as it will help me transition away from slots that I have been so used to playing.

    So with that being said, I wont be here on the forum any longer either. Maybe it will be for good or maybe it will be a break when I relax for a month or two and get away from it all and relax..

    Maybe see you guys around sometime again

    Take care :)

    I think it's a good idea to have a break but it is sad that you will not be here any more. I enjoyed reading your post.

    Good luck, and because you don't have a gambling problem I hope it is ok to say I will see you some time here again.

    I am so sorry to see you go from here but I can totally understand. I found it slightly difficult to read about your slot adventures recently only because I thought that your losses where unsustainable long term. Saying anything would just come across as presumptuous and not really any of my business.

    I hope that your experience has not impacted on your life long term and I wish you all the luck in the world in future :thumbsup:

I totally understand your reasons for doing so and I wish you the best of luck in life and any new adventures you undertake, take care and hard as it is put it behind you, don't dwell on the losses as it will only bring you down - a new chapter starts right here and now. Be happy :)

    I for one will miss you :(

    No more rigged 'banter', no actually make that no more rigged factual speeches!

    I hope to see you back in the future, maybe gambling on a smaller scale/budget and without any exploding rocks to be seen.

    Not encouraging you to return (to slotting(), would be good to see you back even as a total "none gambler", there are a few around who still enjoy some laughs and banter with us who never do a single spin :thumbsup:

    Take Care!

    Crap eh :(:(:(. I hope these show up in your e-mail. I'm going to miss you! You know, you're off the wall smart and have the ability to go far in life! I don't know what your life is outside of here, but have you ever thought of going back to school and designing games? I think you would be good at it. What ever you chose, you will do good, that I have no doubt. No ones going to be able to match your dry sense of humor. lol. I wish you the best and hope you pop in sometime to let us know how you are doing! <3

    I hate that that game did you in. I'm sorry. I think you tried to beat it. And honestly I hate that fkn game now more than ever cuz it made you go away.
    I will be sad but understand.
    Thank you for your posts. Your advice. And most of all the way you confronted and responded to the realities of gambling and the posters on here.

    I will miss your posts.

    I posted already a few points in the Bonanza thread.

    Every gamblers runs the risk to be taken in by a game so much, that he/she forgoes reason and limits. Happened to me the last time in December during the VS marathon on Astro Cats from Lightning Box. Wanted to see the full bonus feature once and sacrificed nearly $2K to get a measly 15x bet win. :oops:

    I can see that's exactly what happened to you with Bonanza. First you did pretty well and than you wanted that MONSTER WIN so bad, that you forgot everything around you. I am pretty sure it can happen to me again as well, luckily I am not prone to go into tilt mode too often. :D

    Taking a break always help, that goes for all matters in life. Enjoy your time off the reels, it will be fun! :thumbsup: :D

    To be honest (lockinlove, please, no offense) I think the game is genius, a goldmine for BTG. I play it in every session and get no better or worse runs than any other HV slot. How many bad bonus rounds do we endure on DoA, BoD or similar? It comes with the volatility.

    I wagered yesterday nearly $2K on Bonanza with a $150 deposit and was still up by $50. Played it later again for nearly $1.5K and was up by $180 at the end. And my bets were either $1 or $2 all the time. Went in the VS race from "not-ranked" to place 221.

    But it can go veeery long with no Free Spins and quite often when it finally hits them you end up with a measly result.

    As with any other slot, staying too long will always be a killer.

    That's good lockinlove that you have come to your senses hopefully it is before it was too late. I myself has cut down somewhat since the lost of netent and with how bad it is lately I am thinking it is time to go do something else or play live more.

    Now as Jono's post stated trying to do a smaller scale/budget and with how things are I am willing to do 20 or 50 bucks split with any of the senior members here like jono, or we will let mcgameboy play immortal romance since he seems to do well haha.;)

    Not wanting to derail this topic into a Bonanza topic (not sure if the OP is too happy to be reminded of this piece of filth) but at least with other high variance games the bonuses do drop in more frequently.

    I am not sure if others play like me, but I usually play until I hit a bonus round till I move slot. And that can be a killer on Bonanza. Very cleverly designed but not ethical in my opinion.

    I was just thinking about the ethics part as I was doing my laundry, and actually came back to post about it. At what point does a casino say " you know what, this might not be a good game for our players"?

    One casino rep here said that they will not be hosting the game after he played it in free mode and was wondering if the bonus round even exists!

    That casino should be made casino of the year!
