Slots that "stick" and jump off paylines???

Has anyone else encountered this? Lately, while playing Microgaming slots, although it seems to really happen while playing two particular ones, the slot will land on a winning payline (usually with a big payout attached) and then immediately "jump" to a NON winning combination? At the same time, the slot "noise" will garble as well. This happened repeatedly at Collosseum last week, and I wrote them about it several times. THEN, it happened when it should have resulted in a $1000 payout; the last reel then adjusted itself and it became a $10 payout. I immediately emailed them, giving them the exact time of day it happened, etc. I couldn't take a screen shot because it happened so quickly. I don't expect anything to be done about it, and I got the big "we will report this to Microgaming and get back to you" blow off, but I was just wondering if anyone else has encountered this??

I think someone else mentioned this same thing happening to them late last year. Maybe Linda7? Or dominique?? I can remember, but I"m pretty sure it was a female player.

LOL...I swear to GOD it happened to me at Lucky Nugget, 3 days ago. I was playing some slot game with alot of across and diag. lines. 3 grey 7s appeared in a diag. line all in a row on the lines. Then the 7 in the bottom left hand corner moved down slightly. I laugh and was like damn, these MF wants it all back. I then smoked a joint and gave it all back. :eek:

I am sure it is designed to be like this to make you feel that you almost hit a big prize so that you keep playing. Slots work like this: the RNG generates a random number, which determines where the wheels will stop, then the machine puts on a show with the wheel spinning and eventually the wheels stop where it was determined that they should stop. A mechanical wheel may get jammed and stop in the wrong position, but it won't happen in online casinos.

Maybe, but I only seem to encounter this on a few select slots...do they really think that getting gyped out of a jackpot encourages you to continue playing "in hopes"?? just the opposite with me, I won't play those anymore, it just pisses me off too much!!

Did anything ever get done with this spinning thing? The same thing happened to me earlier today. It happened so fast that I wouldn't categorize it with jumping or sticking, per say, but I'm waiting on the casino to email me back. It's been over an hour and we're talking a $5000 win, so I'm very anxious. I'd posted under the general Online Casino folder but prob should've posted here in the complaints.

I wish I had read this post ages ago. :mad: I know now NOT to use a crowbar against my monitor's screen in hopes of slowing down the reels. So close so many times playing Aztec Treasure...


Note to "bayleesprings": "recruit" hasn't been to Casinomeister.com in almost a year. Methinks you're going to have to PM him on that one...

I dont know the machine you talk about but this sounds similar to the extra long 2 bell suspense spin of katmandu. Is it a fairly new machine by any chance?

Reminds me of a very old electro mechanic fruit machine "Moon Bug" :lolup: Any old skool arcade junkies remember this one???

It's not the "suspense spin", although I know what you're talking about. In this case, the whole screen (all reels) started to spin. When it was done, only the first reel stopped on the flamingo.
