    Hi,

    97% of my play takes places at a Fortune Lounge casino. Since April 06 I've had some pretty good wins playing the 9 line bonus slots (Spring Break, Thunderstruck and Ladies Night). Granted I'm still down about 15K in deposits even with 8K in withdrawals. Still it's a pastime I enjoy, well it was till recently.

    Since the last update of games (Dolphin Tale) my favourite slots have gone from being what I call "giving a fair run" to a total nightmare of sucking everything I deposit down the tube.

    For instance my average on getting the free spins across these three slots is on average 350 spins. Best case scenarios have been in 10 spins or less, with worse case being (this month) 2,500+ spins on Spring Break. (when I finally get the spins I'm lucky to break $10 bucks).

    Now being a gambler any money I drop I resolve myself to the fact it's lost money. If I win great if not, well you get the picture. However, I do expect some type of fair game play or @ least not having to drop $100 @ a time to only see disappear with little or no wins time and time again.

    This month I've dropped a total of 1.9K-US at this FL casino and have made no withdrawals (cash has been a bit lean this month), my average deposit per month is $4761US total.

    My average bets are from .45 cents - $4.50 but this month they’ve been around .45 - $2.25 max.
    Still dropping my bets and trying different days & times seems to make no difference. I even tried another FL casino and the results were the same.

    My question is anyone else having the same misfortune on Spring Break, Thunderstruck & Ladies Night too?

    Or do I resolve myself to the notion that Lady Luck’s gone on vacation & forgot to invite me :(

    These can be bad

    I have noticed that these slots can turn REALLY nasty on occasion. The bonus rounds should be around 150 spins apart, and often the worst spells are two or three times this. 2500+ with no bonus is very bad, and recently I had a bad spell on Thunderstruck during the Casino Action tournament, where I went down nearly 300 on tiny bets per spin. It looked like I had a marathon 1000+ run with nothing.
    I switched my play to Golden Reef and had one very big hit on Thunderstruck, getting wild hammers (2x pay) during free spins at a bet of 4-50. This netted some 2500+ (see "winner screenshots"). This is only the second time I have had this hit during free spins, the earlier one was at a mere 0.45 bet for 260+
    I have noticed that sometimes changing coin size, and number of coins bet per line, can help change luck in terms of hitting the bonus rounds, but sometimes it seems all combinations just suck.
    We will probably never know for certain if each spin is truly independent of the previous games, but sometimes it seems these slots will go into a marathon suck, and stay that way even over a number of visits to a given casino.

    I've had quite the opposite recently. Spring Break has done well for me and the last 3 times I've played - I got the spins within about 30 tries. Only a moderate payout, but then I usually go elsewhere after the win.

    ISIS has been very good to me lately as well as Loaded and Harveys.

    I can garantie that nothing has been changed on these slots. The ONLY way MG can change the slots is by changing the reels or paytable and the casinos
    can not do this themself. And I can see that the reels have not been changed. Spring Break/Thunderstruck and Tally Ho is 'linked' since they use the same reels/symbols. Tally Ho has another paytable though. (That actually gives payout 96% instead of 95% as on Thunderstruck).

    The fundamental mechanics on the MG slots is that each position on each reel has same probablity. (this means you actually are seeing 'real phycics' with no weighted reels. Perfect implementation if you ask me)

    For RTG it is a whole different matter. Casinos can change them as they wish and to payout as low as 70% from what happened on 'Fruit Frenzy')

    I've noticed more or less the same thing. Especially Spring Break has been really stingy, it seems I can't get a free spin, I've tried every kind of bet size (up to 9$) and different casinos, but the result has been... nada!:eek2: I would dare to say that lately all slots have been really nasty, no free spins and maybe some "big" win on a line after many spins, that brings the balance back to my deposit value, but it seems impossible to "earn" something more than the deposit.I know I can't always win, but like this it's quite boring:mad:

    They haven't been kind to me this month, but last month they were rocking. They are just risky high variance games I think you'll find...but a fun risk IMO :D

    Wanted to include the above quote as I feel it's pretty relivant. :thumbsup:

    It's been so bad this month I contacted VIP support. Was sure the cleaner at the Kahnawake game server compond had kicked the RNG :rolleyes: Of course I got the usual dialog "we can't alter the game payouts" retort, followed by the genric response for these situations.

    Don't get me wrong, I trust MG protocols. However this month's been like ground hog day and no matter what trust I have, it start to fuel doubts.


    On another theory, obviously debated between me, myself & I in the wee hours of my crapola game play, would the number of slots decrease the over all payouts per casino? Although jackpot wins are not paid by the casino per say, have other noticed a difference in payouts for a casino that a number of jackpots have been won over the course of a month?

    I downloaded an MG casino recentley and was playing in play mode , and hit the the tvs on that one game, forgot the name of it . Too bad I was playing in play mode! What a hit that would have been! I think the payout was like 15,000 coins.

    My luck has been bad for a while and sometimes it really is hard to believe that a slot is not set to "suck the life from Rusty" mode
    I mean sometimes you just know you cant win, if only I could bet on that!
    Also I have noticed that after I have hit a decent payout the slot then goes on to suck like a middle aged squid whore from hell (cough) sorry.
    You can only imagine the language I hurl at the screen on regular losing occasions, sigh but I enjoy it, dont I?
