Why is it that when you have a withdrawal at MG casinos ,or you have had a good win and have built up your credits that the casino goes totally dead. It does not matter what game you play or at what denomination, nothing seems to pay..If it was RANDOM as they say you should still get some reasonable drops, but in my case I seem to get nothing at all. Has anyone else had this problem ?

Of course :) Happens a lot, though not always. Two ways to look at it IMO...either you think the casino is cheating, or you consider it to be the variance of the slot you are playing. If you believe the former, you shouldn't go near an online casino again, if you think it's the latter then you should consider the strategy you are using (IE: decent win + 50%+ profit on deposit + medium variance slot = cash out). :thumbsup:

Most slots players go wrong, myself included, in not cashing out at the right time taking into account their deposit size, wager size and variance of the game. The temptation is to say either a) I have only been playing 10 mins, I want more fun or b) if I hit once, I can hit again. Adjustments may be needed to your style of play if session time is more/as important as profit. This is why house-edge isn't all it's cracked up to be: 97% may sound great, but stopping at the top is an artform ;)

No.

See Simmo's post.

I am not complaining ,but if it was RANDOM i would expect the slots to pay a little bit after a win, I put in 100 got 100 bonus built it up to 2000 and hoped to get more but then "BANG" NOTHING no matter what game i played . Ended up pulling out 1000..Am happy with that but for the games to pay nilch it is a bit dissappointing..As you say you must know when to pull out. I played for over a week with the initial 100 plus 100 so as i said no complaints.

I believe the RNG to be totally random.

It's just that on most days it appears to be less random than other days, but yet remains random.

The 3 letter airport code for RNG is Rangely, CO. Maybe the real answer is hidden there.

The truth is out there.

Somewhere.

I play a lot at land based casino's and I find the same to be true there - if you cash out it will often trigger something in the machine's RNG and your winning streak will become a losing streak rather quickly. It doesn't always happen like this, sometimes I can cash out 3 or 4 times from the same machine and it always eventually hits another big one. But more often than not, when I cash out, I move on, because I know that it's probably done.

I think the same happens online. Slots will go thru dry spells and runs where you can do nothing wrong. It can change in the blink of an eye and so you need to watchful of the patterns and stop when you're ahead and notice that the wins aren't coming in the same way they were before. I think nearly every gamblers downfall (myself included) is knowing when to stop. We always get that "there's another big one coming" mentality and then when it doesn't come we get angry and look for something else to blame. Random in no way means you're gonna always win, even a little bit, and it also doesn't mean that a lucky streak can't change. In fact, it makes more sense that it will change otherwise to me it wouldn't be random.

losing in casinos is the norm, winning is the exception.

Can't argue that. If every gambler remembered that before they deposit, casinos, bookies or wherever, there'd be less problem gambling. :thumbsup: Damn but it's hard :D
