Im so amazed about couple of slots..

Aloha over 5000 spins(free spins from casinos included) without single feature and that feature isnt really even that good.

Same with wild water , i dont even remember when was last time i got spins from that game even i play it allmost every session.'

Anyone else has noticed this or is it just my superior bad luck run...

Both Hello! Cluster F*ck and Vile Torture are classic 'Netent Variance' games. In other words, once you exceed approximately 100 x stake down on them, you are extremely unlikely to recover to par or profit thereafter. Take 50 or so spins on them, if no feature leave.

I had a £46 pound no feature tonight on Captain ass-hole at 10 pence a bet.

That's sort off just bad for Novomatic.

32 Red bust.

Video slots The Rift I was disliking so much to the feature and got over 100X, base game made my mind sick, then went on Gemix basically few quid up.

5000 spins is all most never heard off to not get a feature in one session.

I had a really bad session at 32 Red on soccer Safari 3 hours to hit free spins and I was up when they hit, so thought well been 3 hours next lot can't be that far off 800-900 spins I'm in well I went again same result and again and it paid me nothing during FS. I zero'd out and left but did make it to the bonus spot on the 32 Red slot-meister and got a very quick £300 net withdrawal after making wagering on bonus funds and zero'd out made a deposit and got 500X base game hit on Fish party.

Hope your luck changes like mine did.

I felt like some self torture last night and played Aloha for the first time (excluding promotional FS when game was launched)

Geez what a pile of horse excrement! - This shit make Starburst look good.

Didn't really lose much but its one of those slots where you know its a losing spin before you click the mouse!

Never again! - Especially when, for a penny less per spin you can hit 'x' wins in the 1,000's!

I a played Aloha few times when I had a 10 credit or less balance I had some 80 X features.

I wouldn't hit it up for a real session.

Not much choice for 10 pence a pop on Netent.

Aloha is a homeless man's version of Aristocrat's Sons of Anarchy. They have it at my local so I'll play that over this garbage.

Wild Water gave me nice wins early on, including a line hit of Silhouette Surfer but hasn't paid squat lately.

Drive and Twin Spin are retired because I have max hits on them.

I was doing a VS freeroll and the great thing about it is that you get to 'sample' games you'd normally never touch with a bargepole.

So up came Wanky Wabbits. We had an hour and a half to get through £30 on minimum bets. Alas, 6 minutes later, my balance read '0'.

What a repellent, loathsome, rapacious abomination of a game.

You'd have to be a sadomasichist to play this shit. Makes Starburst look like a classic :mad:

I got 700 spins on DoA with £25 at 49p a spin, No big wins, no features, Just low boring wins equating to more spins.

Pyramid - the quest for immobility is the worst net ent game in this regard, of all times. It is a pure scam slot, IMO.

Apparently they are saying this slot is supposed to be a very high variance slot and so we are expected to just sit still and take it up the ass while it bleeds us dry, and thank it afterwards. I am very familiar with high variance net ent slots, what with DoA and Reel Steel being BY FAR my most played slots. This pyramid bullshit is nothing like those two. I actually started to log my play on it after my initial observation that it plays like crap. I have now nearly 4000 spins on it, and would you like to guess what is my biggest win? 75x. Yes, seventy-five-fucking-times bet in nearly 4000 spins. I don't even wanna calculate how much I am down on it by now. How is it supposed to get me anywhere near the theoretical RTP now? Spins are clocking in and the situation gets worse and worse after each session.

I know of no other net ent slot that has this amount of dead spins, either.

My point is: where are the huge wins? Where are the videos and screenshots of several thousand xbet wins? or even over 10 000x? After all, this is supposed to be a very high variance slot. Surely there should be plenty of them by now. I'm not holding my breath. In the words of Dunover, this slot is clearly "BULLSHIT!"

I don't play it either - for exactly the same reason. Its a load of Hogwash from NetEnt - Its supposed to have a 36 000x bet or something max win... LOL

i also hate that one with passion, once i went through $70 balance on 0,20 - 0,30 bets without a big win but it really is capable of ...semi-big(?) wins though. Mostly at 10c mind you, at least thats my experience with it. Last time i played it it ate $50 or so of my balance on 0,20 - 0,30 bets in no time, and i was so pissed off that i wanted to use another $20 or $30 at min bet autoplay just to actually test it. First autospin on 10c i get 177x. I mean seriously? That was also the last time i played it. My best hit on that thing is 274x though so it really is capable of decent hits, but that one was also on 2c (0,20 bet) so there is another food for thought :/

that evil, evil 177x hit screenie is on my other hdd so ill post it later today. Regardless my main problem with this one is its capable of going thru 10's of dead spins, and then when you finally hit something, most of the time it doesnt really cover your bet size to begin with. And like 95% of its "winning" spins are either lower than your bet or 2x-3x. And it can go like that for 100's of spins. Heck, countless times you get to 2x multiplier and dont actually win more than your bet size :p

The way i see it its higher variance than DoA, but it cant actually pay out as much (i mean in theory it should be able to, but yeah) so there is really no reason to chase this one.

Wow. 5,000 spins on Aloha! without a bonus would be gobsmackingly unlucky (approaching hundred-thousand-to-one unlucky, I'd expect). Did you mean 500? That would be very bad, but less surprising - the free spins are pretty rare considering there's six reels with five spaces each and you only need half the symbol visible to trigger the bonus. I've had them about once every 100 spins on average. I quite like Aloha!, actually, but I agree the variance is very high. The best single hit I've managed was 23 of the red faces in the respin feature, which plays about 400x I think, and 100x bonus games don't seem that uncommon. So I'm in fairly healthy profit, although I doubt it would last if I went back to it.

Presumably the 36,000x top payout on Pyramid - outrageously unlikely as it might seem - is actually an artificial cap? After all, the rules as written mean Pyramid can theoretically keep paying out forever. If you got a bank of identical symbols in the middle reels, below the wilds, and never matched them AND managed to get a line of three wilds on the top, it could keep giving you wilds forever, which would automatically match whatever symbols dropped onto reel one and then get replaced. It happened to me once, but I matched my main symbols after about 10 hits. Of course the payout was enormous, about 800x, but then it broke the run. I haven't really played it since. I figure I got my one lucky shot at it, and ended up breaking even, so I should call it quits. I prefer slots with more features anyway...

I didn't realise Big Bad Wolf had a similar cap of 2,000 symbol drops or something like that. I got two bonus rounds in the same set of spins and was mightily pissed off when the game just stopped. But I guess any game with drops and a large number of wilds needs to do that.

I wonder if there's a limit to the number of bonus rounds/respins you can get on Invisible Man, which can also theoretically go on forever. I've had two freespin bonuses in the same set of spins a few times, one of which went on for about 20 minutes and paid about 500x. It seems to only let you trigger the Police Spins or Invisible Man Picks once for any given bet (the meters reset but don't fill on subsequent bonuses), but there's no indication that you couldn't keep getting regular bonuses forever. I'm on a bit of an Invisible Man kick at the moment - won £5000 on it today! It's my favourite NetENT slot at the moment, until it inevitably turns on me...

There seems to be a generally anti-NetENT feeling on the forum, but I've found them to pay out a lot better on average than any other company's games. Obviously that's part of the variance of playing slots, but perhaps I've been extremely lucky rather than just quite lucky, like I thought?

Give it time.

Come back when Netbent games 'turn' on you. Your bankroll will feel more sore than an accidental lock-in at the Blue Oyster

Ha! I expect your right. But I'm finding it hard to be too down on NetENT today. I deposited £500 with a 100% welcome match-up, because I didn't realise the bonus playthrough requirements were 70x, not 35x (I'm pretty sure the way their site is worded/translated isn't legal - surely Terms and Conditions can only clarify/expand on what's written on the rest of the site, not outright contradict it? The splash page explicitly said the wagering requirements were "35 times the bonus amount"). Anyway, after ploughing through exactly £35,000 worth of bets, I've withdrawn just over £8,500, all through play on NetENT at £4-5 a spin. The only games that weren't kind to me were Drive (which I only threw 100 spins at to try and get the bonus) and Koi Princess, which I've never really got on with. It seems to have the paytable of a low variance slot, but without actually having low variance. And there's no way that fish picking bonus is randomised!

But even with those duffers, it was easily my best sustained run on slots ever, just slowly accumulating wins. My second highest win after my monster 500x Invisible Man hit was probably only 200x (from the Wild Water team bonus, which I've never seen anyone get before!). Even Creature from the Black Lagoon was paying (in the base game!), and I've never done well on that.

netent has been pretty good to me. Ive learned to stay away from a few games aside from the odd 25 spins here and there. COTBL and gunsnroses especially for me. Both seem to be massive money eaters.

My issue is with microgaming. Aside from JP, GOT and Avalon II.....I find their slots to be straight up sex offenders.

You might want to switch to Lights.

9p a spins and at least a chance of hitting 200x on the bonus round, have done it many times ;)

Same with wild water , i dont even remember when was last time i got spins from that game even i play it allmost every session.'

Anyone else has noticed this or is it just my superior bad luck run...

I love Wild Water, but I only ever seem to get the free spins while I'm still wagering and never with real money :( Think this year has been pretty bad for gambling.. Lady Luck has f**ked off somewhere censored
