I play Thunderstruck very often, mostly at Roxys....

One thing I noticed is that if I use the Autoplay Feature I never get 3, 4 or 5 scatters.... But if I play regular I get it fairly often...

Anyone else did notice that?

Another question is if you had ever 5 scatters... I never get lucky with this eighther....

I voted "Fairly Often" but I must qualify it because I play Thunderstruck only on those "Play 1 hour freeplay" promotions that Casino Classic, Captain Cook's, Mummy's Gold, etc. run. I usually run Autoplay for 100 spins. I have come up with at least one round of free spins when 3 rams show up on a autoplay spin. BUT these freeplay promotions is the only time I ever play slots.

I play slots only with Autoplay, and Thunderstruck is my favourite slot game.
I did hit 5 scatters only 1 time at King Neptunes, although I play it most of the time at 32Red.
I also noticed that if I get the 3 scatters during the bonus round, with the last 15 extra spins I almost win nothing.

I had to vote 'fairly often' because I always use autoplay, and I reckon I have had my fair share of scatters (once every 130-140 spins).

However - I hardly ever play Thunderstuck 'cos it hates me and always steals all my money... :mad:

No difference

I now play slots regularly, but usually when some kind of bonus or loss insurance promotion is on, or for a tournament. I rarely play the non-bonus slots though, except for 5-Reel Drive, Carnaval and What A Hoot, along with the 800/1600 jackpot 2 coin 3 reel slots to meet a WR with low variance.
On small stakes I use autoplay, although on larger stakes I use either manual play or the 5 and 10 spin buttons.
I have found that manual play can be just as unforgiving as autoplay when it comes to getting the 3 scatters, and autoplay can give the scatters freely too.
One thing I have noticed though is that the scatters either come within the first 2 or 3 dozen spins on autoplay, or not at all for near on 300 spins. I have gone 700+ spins on Thunderstruck with no 3 scatters, and much of this was on manual play on a medium stake in the range.
On a small stake of 0.45 and on autoplay I hit wild hammers in the bonus round. I also hit 5 scatters on Spring Break during a bonus round that was triggered during autoplay, but which I had set to stop for me to enjoy the free spins myself.

I don't think it makes any difference, and according to the rules of random games it should not. Any long term evidence that autoplay wins less or more than manual play, or that stake and coins played makes a difference, would be rather damaging for the credibility of Microgaming. If anyone has such evidence, or thinks they have, it should be posted so that we can all form our own opinions.

I agree... I hardly use auto play but, when I have, I have the exact opposite outcome! Total coincidence, but I tend to hit the scatters more in it!!!! Broad as it's long... The software just keeps pressing the 'spin' button for you, instead of you.

I have got all the scatters twice on Thunderstruck . Both times betting very low [.27 I think ] Once gave me free spins and the seond time was during free spins . That was almost 2 years ago and nothing more than 4 since . Even with all the rounds on Ladies Night I have played I have never got all 5 scatters but I sure like looking at the screenshots . Here's hoping we all get 5 scatters. :thumbsup:

I play Thunderstruck a LOT and I've never gotten 5 scatters. But check this out, I was playing last week and got 5 hammers (with Thor) and about 15 minutes later I got free spins and landed it again - paid me $241.80 for a $.45 bet. Of course that money is back in their pocket now, but still it was nice that they let me hold it for awhile! :)

Unfortunately an attitude also adopted by these do-gooder US politicians. They see a few people get addicted and tar everyone with the same brush assuming their personal moral beliefs are what's best for everyone.

I am sick of the government running our lives

OK, here's our set of current values: Don't let adults take responsibility for their actions lest they spend too much on gambling, unless of course it is the state run lotteries, but it is quite all right to slaughter people in other countries just because they don't look or think or believe like the majority.
Or at least the majority in the government in Washington :mad:

lets not make this political

I play slots to have fun and its not the money of course 30,000 in the last year and a half would have been spent better somewhere else. All you have to due is read the threads on this board about the losing streak everybody is having at MG sites not just me. When you can blow thru 300.00 in a night and not win 10.00 or more in an hour and a half well its not fun anymore. I don't play to think i can make a living at it but for gods sakes i think it should last alittle longer and for there sake maybe keep me coming back more. I am not looking to win the dam lottery just losen the percentages up fairly. Hey maybe all this complaining on these forums about MG slots sucking will help all you people out in the future, maybe the the owners of these casinos at MG's will see how many people are leaving there sites and complaining about percentages at there slots games and losen them up alittle. Only you people left on these sites will benifit if they decide to due that. I myself am just tied of hereing the vacum turn on when i decide to play MG slots. Hell maybe this was a blessing to give it up all together. They are not justing losing me which i am sure they don't give to Sh##t's about but read other posts about the same subject time and time again. Like i said maybe these owners at MG sites should take a look at these boards and relizes how many upset people there are at there sites playing slots with there below average percentages which favor them terribly and turn it around which the rest of you still playing will benifit. Hey just my 2 cents thats all, thats all they will ever see from me anymore anyways. And as far as the last post i believe the government should regulate online casinos just to keep them legit.

Regulation of online casinos

That's what is nice about this forum. Everyone has an opinion. Regulation would be no problem but with it comes taxation and even I, as an accountant, am not ready to see how they would handle that! I just don't want the government to make it illegal, or I am moving to Vegas:D

I've hit the 5 rams twice. Both times, on low bet. I also hit 5 Thors once, betting low ( .36 ) but still was a sweet pay out for a low-roller. Just like any slot. It can be rather cold at times..lol.
