So expected that it's almost sickening

I had worked $50 into $480 on thunderstruck and had a general good run. I thought lets go for it and raised the stakes to $9 a spin. A quick math will make that 53 spins if no win, it took me 72 to go broke :p

Don't you love Thundersturck just for the wild ride??? I had few times like that... Most times, I cash out right away. But I didn't cash out at last one :(

Have fun and good luck.

I must be great to be rich enough to do something mad like that, and still smile about afterwards! :notworthy

Like you said - Expected AND Sickening! But thats what you get with MG.
I signed up to a new one yesterday for $15 free, played a bit of Stud Poker & got exactly what I expected! I know this is a VERY short session, but this really happened yesterday, as it does 7 of every 10 times with MG:-

Hd Act . Player . Dealer . Result
1. Bet . 88A25 . 99A10J . Lost
2. Fold. 349JQ . 2589K . . Lost
3. Bet . 3348K . 99458 . . Lost
4. Fold. 4567J . 58910K . Lost
5. Fold. 3489K . 665810 . Lost
6. Bet . 88679 . AA910K . Lost
7. Fold. A578J . 2610JK . Lost

Now I'm not claiming there's anything wrong with MG software, just because every time I had a pair the dealer had a better pair, and when I had nothing the dealer also had nothing bar once. I'm sure this happens all the time in a truely random game of stud...! ;)

I was just thinking, do you suppose Microgaming is apparently the most popular software on the net because of the marvelous player experience, or because casino operators are getting the best return from it? Hmmmmm... :oops:

The probability of losing 10 hands in a row at Caribbean Stud is about 1/130, which is hardly exceptional.

My favorite anecdote was when I went down from about $200 to my last $50 - then played Thunderstruck. Went on this incredible run where I ran it up to $1000, then nursed that amount to ensure I met the WR. Cashed out almost $2000.

Tried to duplicate that feat a couple of times - surprise, surprise...no such luck!
