    I have heard a lot of bad stories about RTG casinos, but wow Rival is slowly catching up. I spent a total of $2500 in 4 days about two weeks ago. I luckily most of that back, but proceeded to spend another $1800 last night in 5 hours. This is all on a penny machine with $2.00 being the max bet. Their machines are becoming very tight! I could not believe it. Out of that $1800, I got a mere $20 in comp points, and no player bonuses! Anyway, that's not the worst of it. I've been waiting for a withdrawal from Pantasia since March 8th, and from Simon Says since March 15th. They just keep telling me that their ACH processor is down, and it's becoming increasingly difficult to get money to USA players. They sure didn't have any problems taking my deposits though. Also, for a couple of days, every time I got a bonus round, the casino shut down. This happened at three different casinos of theirs. I have contacted support, and they said they were looking into this issue, but alas 10 days have gone by, and I have heard nothing. I play the machines for the bonus rounds, because that's where you usually make your money, so to have them shut down during the bonus round at least 10 times, made me angry. The casino actually shut down and booted me off during bonus rounds. Anyway, I've played here for years, and usually love their casinos, but I don't know what is happening lately. It seems like this last month has just been bad. To go through almost $4000 on a penny machine is a little much.

    I feel your pain, heidisue. I remember when a free spin round on Cleo's Coins would get you a minimum $50-$60, now you're lucky if you get $10. I have been a loyal player and supporter for quite some time but I'm getting pretty tired of spending and spending and not even getting a bonus round, e.i. spent $125 today and got 1 bonus round on the new slot which paid about $40. Got the free spins on Cleo's Coin and got $2.10. Not funny anymore. :mad:

    I know what you mean. I haven't played them lately, but read the bum news these days about RTG. I have to say though that I really dug the Reel Series Video Slots though, they are awesome. Aztec, FF, the Diamond one lots of fun. I'm sorry to hear you guys are getting creamed on RTGs. If it's any consolation, you have helped me not contribute to the losses, I THANK YOU ALL!! Hope the news gets better about RTGs, I really want to go play there again!!

    yes and yes again. you guys are right. i love playing the slots and i play everyday. i dep sometimes 100.00 a few times a week and also sometimes a few smaller deposits . if you add it up i probably spend quite a bit making all my small dep. i cant hit much at all. ive won a few good hits here and there but it eats it all back up. and you think on the features you might get lucky but it doesnt happen. i got the features today on a rtg game and i got .96 cents. that s pitiful. .

    I have the same opinion. Something has definitely changed with the Rival Slots. Could amost guarantee a good payout on the bonus spins, but not anymore.

    Also used to get free credits fairly often, but seldom get them now. Also, I think the wagering has changed for bonuses.

    All in all, I have very little motivation to deposit there anymore.

    many had same experiences elsewhere though...

    Hang in there guys. :notworthy

    I think we have all gone through the exact same scenario at almost (if not) EVERY casino group. :(
    RTG, Micro. Rival, 3Dice and ALL of them.... (skipping, freezing reels, bumped off, slow downs ) :mad: yes... very frustrating.

    BUT IMHO.. I really don't think (and hope it's not..) "tightening up". ;)
    Back at the end of 2006 to mid 2007 I won hundreds here and there And I first loved but then hated my "favorite" casino's and I accused them of exactly the same things!

    I now truly believe that the harder we try to win the more we lose..we believe it will "pay back" but it doesnt (not like before). :sob:

    Once I realized this I learned to only deposit $20-$40 (tops! unless I get lucky ;)) at any online casino. If I can build that great! and If not, oh well. I had my fun and I play free tourneys.


    If you have the budget to play large sums of money, Kudos to you :thumbsup: and I wish you luck. I myself can't see dumping large sums of money at any one online casino ~ if anything I would split it up (accreditted of course) and build here and there.. and still have fun where ever it decides to pays the gambler on the other side of cyberspace! :D

    I don't think anyone can "expect" to always win... can they?

    I don't think that any of us expect to win. I do think that we expect to be able to play longer than 10 minutes on a $100 deposit.

    I have played the Rivals slots since they came into being and believe me when I say, things have changed and not for the good regarding players. Even when you play the horses you still get your bet back even if the horse is 1-1. But even with the free spins you can't get your bet back sometimes on the games.

    I used to think that Rivals were the best casinos on the net but with every day my mind is changing. They have changed the slot payouts twice that I know of, changed the bonus structure so that now you have to be a "VIP" to get anything. They have all kinds of strange problems with their software. Their withdrawals are hit and miss and NEVER ask for a withdrawal by ACH unless you want to wait for weeks.

    It just blows my mind that they have taken a very good gaming format and just turned it to s**t. They will tell you their changes are better for the player and that the new games are wonderful. Well, so far my answer is "NOT". :mad:

    Anniemac.. I do truly understand your frustration (not to the the extent of the dollar amount because I would not bet that amount of money)..

    :what:That was Just my opinion.
    I agree that a deposit, whatever the amount should last hours if not days..
    but, I don't do $2.00 spins.

    As I just read in another of your threads from a friend of yours "start low, and then build"..
    personally I find if one machine does not pay out,,, another will at least give a bit of entertainment.

    I was certainly not looking for a reply like your last. I was only stating my own opinion and experience. :confused:
    If you do not want public opinions shared in your thread, then please don't make it public (Yes, I know.. alot of casino's have been "tight" lately) but I would never ever start a thread without accepting and welcoming all opinions and input.
    As I said before this is MHO (my honest opinion)..

    Oh.. and last time I went to the track.. If the horse I bet on didn't even place. I got nothing.

    I only bet the minimum on Rival slots and they do pay good. Judging from what you guys say, I wont be increasing the coin size anytime soon. Maybe you guys can try what I do ie bet the minimum and see what happens.

    Mysticjoz, there was nothing in my reply that was directed to you or anyone else on this forum. As you said, you have the right to your opinion and I have the right to mine. I don't know why you would take offense to my reply and not to some of the others.

    I have played these slots since they came into being. They were a good group of casinos who worked very hard to keep the player happy. I could deposit $25 and play for hours @ $.75. Then they changed the payouts not once but twice. And the games have gotten tighter and tighter. I have made some nice cashouts last year at these casinos but couldn't, obviously buy one now.

    And it will be my option to play there again or not and at this moment it's a not.

    Sorry

    I didn't mean to start any arguments here. I'm sorry. But Rival (I want to make sure I got this group right). I'm talking about Paradise 8, Cocoa, This is Vegas, Davinics Gold, Pantasia, and so on. Their machines have gotten very tight. I obviously didn't learn my lesson and deposited another $120 today, it lasted me 14 minutes, betting $1.00. That's just crazy I think. And my other complaint is their payouts. They are getting as bad as RTG. I've been waiting for a month for one payout now. But, I can't do much, I'm from the USA so I'm limited as where to play. But I remember when I could deposit $40 on Rival and play for awhile, no it seems like every hundred takes 10 minutes. It's just nuts.

    anniemac... this is my last response to this... as I do not feel i even want to be involved in it.
    I ended my post with "I don't think anyone can expect to always win ~ can they?"

    and your reply to my post was...


    therefore, I don't see how I could not have thought that was directed toward me.
    I really care about everyone here at CM (at least most everyone.). and I only responded because it is sooo very easy to get caught up in chasing.. I was there in the past and hope to never be there again. Just Please be cautious.

    there is no problem.. really. I just stated my opinion. ...;)

    I just went through TIV's 200% up to $100 bonus ($150 starting BR) in under 30 minutes @ between .45 & $1.50 a spin. Needless to say I won't be going back to any Rival gaming casino any time soon. I hit 1 bonus round on the new iSlot and never advanced to scene 2. :what: The bonus round, I won approx 10x my bet, only hitting the expanding wild 1 TIME on 1 reel during the entire 10 spins.

    Mystic....It sounds like are being hard on Anniemac and I don't get why. I don't recall her directing her post to anyone in particular, nor do I see where she said that she didn't want to hear anyone's else opinion or input.

    I was not trying to be hard on her or anyone..

    originally I stated that I felt we all went through the same experience with other casino's.
    Annie and all ... if I mis-stated or something I said was taken wrong.
    I appologize

    and with that said..... I shall again go into the shadows and only watch.

    good luck everyone

    I lost the exact same ammount at Intercasino today and it lasted 6 minutes doing $2.50 spins.
    Not funny, but happened to the best of us before and will happen again ;).

    On the other hand you can win some hundred if not thousands of $ within the same time period, so I suppose thats nothing uncommon.

    I can only say, in my opinion it is the total opposite.

    Where you have Slots paying out 98 to 99 % ???

    And those generous bonusses !! If you came from the right aff. you will get even better ones (400%). All cashable.

    True, they had a week or two of not paying but now, my withdrawals come in two days.

    But I cannot speak for all of Rival casinos. Only know Superior and This Is Vegas by now.

    The only bad thing is, that they cannot send mails to WEB.DE, YAHOO and some HOTMAIL.DE (maybe more). 2 weeks I complaint and they didn't want to belive that the error is in their servers. But now my brother was told by them that they have those problems and he has to give them a new email address for coomunication, must be GMAIL (or hotmail.com).
