Is in it sad to realize that Playtech was not Publicly traded one year ago??

Now RTG and Odds On are the only ones left.

How good are they? Would the become the new big guys in the Industry?
Are they planning on major software upgrades for the following months?
Don't you think this guys could be behind developers from Crytpo, MG and Playtech??

As far as I konw RTG is not as good as the ones backing off and Odds On left me a bad mouth taste after English Harbour major problems.

The fact is most US players will be looking for decent operations with these softwares... exciting times to come.

RTG has too many glitches but every once in a while you can hit a decent one. I played Robin Hood again today and this makes about the 50th, yes 50th time (in the last few months) I hit the bonus round and never made it to the next level as I used to before.

They have done something to this game just as they did to the other one when no free spins were given...and they are trying to hide it by changing the play on different games...thinking we don't know any different. If they keep this up, I will quit playing RTG's altogether knowing they are truly cheats in my heart to do this to these games arbitrarily.

Be careful playing these casinos...even knowing they allow US players..that makes them all the worse for trying to sneak in and change the play on these games, which in my opinion they are after the last few months play.

The English Harbour group is owned by a PLC, quoted in London.

So I am not the only one!

I have been playing the RTG casinos for about six weeks. They have changed dramatically within that time. 49er Casino which was my fav I can't hit a feature on anything! VIP Casino I had a good run then it just went cold. I have tried Club USA which I am playing in the Slot Junkies touney. Got one good hit out of that one.

No clue what is going on but all of my favs are as tight as can be now. I would love to hear from some RTG casino managers to find out what is going on! Cleopatra won't hit a feature period!

I am ashamed to say I have done the worst thing in my opinion one can do with online gambling. I have been chasing my losses figuring this was a fluke. Well it isn't in my opinion. The RTG casinos have tightened the purse strings! After all US players are now at their mercy.

I have also noticed that RTG slot machines are getting very tight with bonus rounds. I am going to stop playing at RTG sites for awhile. Way too frustrating! :mad:

I don't believe this is a very well-informed article. They were right about one thing, and that was that Odds On had a bad reputation for being unresponsive to players - example: Forty Plus Casino if you check the archives here at Casinomeister.

As the thelawnet observes, Odds On, which had closer links to EH group than it would admit, was part of the deal when Leisure and Gaming plc took over EH (if you check Casinomeister News archives you will find the full details on the various L&G acquisitions)

Odds On became Vegas Technologies under the overall L&G group.

More recently, following the American debacle, L&G sold off its US-facing business for a dollar. That included EH, and presumably Vegas Technologies in the sale to a private company called Stockdale founded by the ex-CEO of L&G Alistair Assheton.

Whilst it has potential, and has introduced several new games this year I honestly doubt that you could at present class Vegas T in the same category as RTG which has been around for some time and has a long list of licensees. You certainly wouldn't put it in the MGS or Cryptologic or even Playtech league.

Vegas T, assuming Stockdale wants to branch out beyond its own subsidiaries could pick up business by following the same model as RTG...but as many experts have observed, there are still many American developments ahead of the industry and for the forseeable future it is going to be an area for the bold and adventurous.

I also blew 2 grande this month trying to chase losses and nada.
All on RTG in two casinos playing almost daily. Its pretty bad when most of that was on nickle poker and still no hits! In two months of nearly daily play not even one 5oak on joker, nothing good at all:(( The ONLY game I could win anything at was pick-m poker with the ocasional 4oak and only on nickles. I use to have at least one cash out a week, have not made anything to cash out in two months. They can say everything is ok until they are blue, but I know its not. Not when I play daily.

I tried a casino tonight that has the same software as hype and was very impressed. I think I found my new format although not much variety, but at least I was winning for the first time in a LONG time.

Hi

If your interested in a kind of a short diary of my experience in an RTG, go look at my "FYI on I bet you bet" thread :) I had a good run with that one

Which casino might that be if I may ask?

I think Hype is one of the best paying in bonus rounds I have found in all the years I have been playing online for the small amount that is bet. I even received my withdrawal!

Yeah - Just found out about them myself.

It is called InChilli casino. Has all the identical games (nothing new here). Has a nicer website, but the casino is the same. Just played for a bit.

I am trying to find out a little more about this casino (is it the same group, did another group purchase a skin, etc...)

Hope to have more info later.

Didn't you hear?
An RTG spokesman has publicly admitted they've changed the games & are ripping everyone off...
NOT!

Sorry, but do you really expect them to admit anything has changed?

I've been having a cautious 'dabble' with RTG to see if they're back to 'normal'..
Did hit a few early bonus rounds on some, but nothing to sing about & I found the slot completely dried after:
Penguin Power; Feature on spin 80 paid HUGE $2.35 off a 20c spin, then 202 spins of crap.
Honey to the Bee; Stupidly stepped up my bets too quickly and totally blew out in 130 spins of total diarrhea.
Not only no bonus rounds, but crap-all else as well.
On this I wagered $110 & lost $71 = 35% payout... :eek:

Sadly, this, I am beginning to believe.....I wish they would fix BACK the darn games the way they used to be when it was fair and the bonus rounds were decent and hit in a decent amount of spins...now..they are on the bottom of my list to play ...if at all anymore...

same here

OMG

Penquin Power does nothing for me either and honey to the bee was good to me for awhile but I havnt gotten anything from that either. I got bonus rounds on most of them but yet have to seen a bonus round on Ronin and Ive never gotten three strawberries on fruit frenzy

The other ones have been pretty good for me, especially diamond dozen

Random Jackpot - RTG

Well the VIP Casino and BoDog were very nice to a couple of people today. VIP Casino dropped 15k in a Random Jackpot from Aztec's Treasure and BoDog 25k from Ronin.

Not me! Anyone in here I hope!

I belong to both of these casinos and have never hit anything worth while (never made a withdrawal either) and haven't played in over a year at them. Might be time to come test the waters again..but gingerly....

I have a question for the players of the RTG slots, when I was working in the casino two years ago the only "Real Video Slot" was Cleo, and it seemed a lot of players were cashing out all of the time from the other slots. Since I have been back 1 month now it seems like 90% or more is put in the real series slots, and that I see customers almost always doubling and tripleing up, but not cashing out because they are going for the random Jack Pot win. So as players are you looking to win just a few bucks or risk everything for the big win?

When I play I play the same most of the time. I will play $1.00 a spin.

Its sad when I can go through $200 bucks in a session without a bonus round, or when I ocassionaly get one, its for like a $5.00 win.

I play them because they use to be fun. Never play thinking I will hit a random. Fun factor has left the building though.

I play to cash out. The random Jackpot would be a bonus to any win and withdrawal I could make. If I can cashout 2 out of 5 sessions, I am satisfied...but lately it has been 0 out of 10 or more sessions before being able make enough to withdraw or even a worthwhile hit for win (doubling up deposit or better, don't use deposit bonuses).


Bonuse sessions have become almost non-existant and when one is hit, it seems as if the next level is blocked now... and the win is a mere 5-10x your bet. Thats pretty sad on 15 free spin feature IMO. I think Hype will be my new home for a while since the payouts are better and the win/loss ratio is very good for me.

Me personally

I dont play for the big win. I play for fun and hope to get a couple of hundred. i just cashed out for $300 on ibetyoubet. I never go over a $1 and refuse to lose more than $50 at one time. I havnt played all day because I lost $50 this morning. I may put in $20 later on tonight. Its either gonna be a good day or not. I never say to myself "maybe the next spin will do it" it never does. If it's gonna be loose, it's gonna be loose from jump street in my opinion

This goes for real casinos too. If i lose right away, Ill go to my room or go shopping for awhile

I can understand where most of you are coming from, and this next question will be controversial but will as any way. Current consensus for the most part is not to take a bonus, because of restrictions and max pay outs. But if you are looking for just a longer lasting fun time what is wrong with taking a big bonus with big play through and a 10x max cash out.

RTG Psychology

I play to win of course. Win what you might ask? Anything that comes my way. I don't play for the Random Jackpot normally but when they get up into the 15k range I set it for a $.20/spin bet and let it run. It is amazing how much you can win doing that. I hit the feature on Ronin four times last night at BoDog attempting their 25k Random Jackpot. For my $.20 that one spin lasted a very long time and I realized over $50.00. I eventually gave up and cashed out $300.00. My initial deposit was $100.00.

I never play with a bonus now. When I did I seldom cashed anything out. This way when I make a big hit and I do I just cash that out leaving seed money to continue playing.

Everyone is absolutely correct the RTG casinos have tightened up. Cleo is a good example. That one was always a good bet. Now I can't hit a feature in 100 spins. Very disappointing. I would love to see the odds now and the odds from two months ago published by each and ever casino for every game.
