Haven't posted in a while due to 1- Being quite ill, 2- My laptop being in two bits and 3- No wins to share.
Any way if anyone can learn from my huge mistake then this post will be worthwhile.
I am a low roller and my bets would be 40cent Rhino 45c Doa and 30c bets on the likes of Playboy,Finer reels.
Anyway yesterday i am playing happily away and watching the TV at the same time.
Had a decent enough run and hanging in there when i decided to try a new game.When i play a new slot i always bet lowish just to get the feel how good or bad it plays.
I loaded this new game and looked at the right side of the slot and thought i was going to play at 20cent bets.
This idiot here though was not paying attention and i ended up playing 50 EURO on this one shot.
I nearly freaked and nearly had two laptops in bits.

Ouch sorry to see this. It happens to many of us from time to time, imagine if it went the other way and you got a win. Just be extra careful in future.

VS are a very decent outfit.

I am 99.99% positive if you contact them (Dan?) and they see it was a genuine error compared to your usually bet sizes they will do something about it for you ;)

Jono,
Dan looked after me with a few free spins which was more than decent and i have no issue with the casino in any way.
I will be taking extra extra care in future as it was a very very expensive error on my side.As i say if anyone on here can learn from my lesson then good.

Man that sucks! I do this so much its crazy. I get so busy between surfing, a phone call, a knock on the door all at once for god knows what reason. So I rush to put it on auto because I like to come back to a surprise bonus! The other day I meant to do $1 spins, yeah no, It was on auto $10 spins. FUNNY how in all the times I do this, it never hits. I will make my tin foil hat words of declaration. Slots payout different at higher stakes.

And a few weeks before that, I accidentally put it on $20 spins. I know right, how hard is it to check how much your betting before you leave, double check triple check. But I am blonde as said before

OP you can in the responsible gambling section set a max bet rule. Any bet placed over that size will simply not go through. It has saved my arse a few times.

It's funny how in these instances the game NEVER gives a win! Almost as if any raise in stake (first spin) over a certain factor gives all random outcomes a zero value. I have done this 4 times in about 7 years, NEVER seen a win of even a fraction x stake!!!!!! :mad:

It truly sucks when this happens... I think every slot player has done this at least once.

But to think that the casinos adjust the RTP depending on the bet size is just wrong. The reason people think this is because they do 99,9% og their bets at a low stake, and then think it is rigged when they don't win anything on a few missclicks or whatever.

On most slots it takes about 150 spins just to trigger a bonus feature, and how many of them pays crap even at low stakes? Just shows how lucky you have to be to catch a really big win on a missclick or on a few high rolling spins.

They want this to happen it's pretty obvious from the way they design the layout . Max bet button always nice and big and hovering dangerously close to the spin button :p Hey where's my balance ? Oh it's in that tiny writing in that little box in the corner that you can barely see .

Joining the club.

3 x $200 bets and that on a stupid game as well! None of the bets paid a single cent of course! :rolleyes:

Kudos to VS who talked to the provider and I got my 600 bucks back. Immediately after that i activated a bet limit of $18 and have to say it saved me already a few times from silly accidental high bets, especially on new games.

Why providers use letter sizes from their small print t&c's to show the total bet for the spin is certainly not helping anyone but themselves. :eek: :rolleyes:

Hi thebigs,

Sorry to hear about this, I wanted to inform you that i have reported this to Pragmatic and are looking into it.

Till this is solved I would recommend you set a max bet limit from 'My Profile' -> 'Responsible Gaming'-> Set max bet protection limit per spin/bet and you can protect yourself from this happening to you again.

Br,

Daniel

This whole affair is a pretty nasty stunt by the software providers. You open say BDBA and find your default coin size is 25p and max lines and so you have a 22.50 spin if you don't adjust first. Isis is £40 if you don't check first. Twin Spin is £1.25 which isn't so bad but I believe ALL developers should be forced to have the game go open at maximum lines at minimum bet. St*rb*rst opens at a £2 stake, way too much for most.

This way the player has to consciously INCREASE his bet as opposed to having eyes up his arse to make sure he reduces it before commencing play.

This is one of them things I'd love to see changed. Software providers should be made to display the game at minimum bet when opening the game. As it stands, it's apparent that they want the player to start the game at higher denominations or be tricked into doing crazy bets.

That's the kind of thing that normalizes these bet sizes and some new players may get themselves into trouble this way. Doesn't reflect well on Responsible Gambling that they try to shove this down our throats :mad:

Noticed thst on bdba, depending on where you donate money to it, it loads up the previous bet size which you left it at.
Loaded it a few times to find it set to 1 line at 5p, not that i required such a reminder of how my last session ended :(, but still better than seeing that bloomin 22.50 as dunover mentioned.

On some slots, the balance, bet size and line bet are so small, you really need to strain to see them. On a mobile device some are nearly impossible.

Many thanks Dan,
Have now set a limit and to be honest i was not aware that facility was available so my feck up will not occur again thankfully.
Hopefully Pragmatic will make their stake section a bit more bolder especially for us old,bald blind as a bat people.
Also no more TV watching from me while i am gambling so i can concentrate 100 percent lol.
Again thanks for the gesture.
