Last couple of weeks have been horrendous.

3215 spins to get a bonus on Lord of the Ocean Magic which paid 18x.

700 odd spins on Visitors to get a 20X bonus

6 bonuses on Legacy of Dead and the best win was 11x

Blocked from playing further as reached a loss limit that has been put in by the casino without even telling me about it.

Lost a few grand in the last 3 weeks and no withdrawals of any kind...cant buy a win.

Noticed that RTPs on some games have suddenly been lowered without realising as well.

Think I'll just stick to watching the Bandit throw his money away and get back on Gamstop as it's just not enjoyable anymore' sad times.

Blimey you are having a run of bad luck, as sadly you can't even watch the Bandit, as he has caught the virus, so no videos to watch for the foreseeable future

Think many reach point when it's not really enjoyable anymore, been playing (especially slots) less and less all the time by years, these just somehow start to feel boring and in long run can be quite much costing hobby.

Maybe see you at CM still @EkJR , you really have loads of knowledge to give in many conversations, especially regulation ones, been helping many readers here.

WHG invisible limit applied after shuttling deposit after deposit in on Reactoonz 2. All of a sudden unable to play. Can accept it if I know in advance but I didnt. Sent docs weeks ago for SOW and have now gave up chasing it. Just par for the course as had the same experience at Leo Vegas and Casumo. All shut down now though and they wont get another penny from me.

Best thing you could have done,why pay for something you no longer enjoy.
In my experience when i have had an extended break any desire to gamble fades pretty quickly,
Dont think you will miss playing at all after a few weeks.Dare not think what state UK casinos will
in a year from now, cant see there being any incentive to start gambling again.

ive always found SOW and SOF quite strange yes alot of places ask for it,ive been playing at one site since 2007 big brand,ive deposited thousands there and they have never asked for SOW or SOF yes they regulated by the UKGC,i see it like this if you regular say deposit £100 a week then one week you do say a £500 one thats when the alarm bell goes,or it could be when one reaches about 5k of total deposits then they ask for SOW or SOF but with all this covid19 madness going on and set to continue things will only get stricter,the good old days have gone

Oh yeah I'll still be here, but just not actively gambling anymore. Gamstopped now for a year and I'll likely miss it but not as much as I would have in the past.

You might be surprised to find out just how quickly you don't miss it.

I made a decision to take a break from gambling at the end of June.
I was only planning to take a month away from it, but it ended up being two months.
And to be honest, the only reason I started again was because I felt like a bit of a birthday gambling binge
(my birthday was late August, the binge was early September).
A couple of days and a slew of bustouts later and my urge to continue soon stopped.

I haven't made a deposit since September 5th.

And the thing is, it's not because I don't have gambling funds.
I simply can't be arsed with it anymore. I have completely fallen out of love with it.

What started out 7 years ago as an occasional treat has now become a chore.

God I miss the days when I looked forward to my Friday night DOTD at 32Red.

Yeah the slots themselves have become ridiculously high variance..you either bust out or hit something crazy...vast majority of times the former. Think that has a big part in this. When an Elk game takes 700 spins to bonus, tiny wins base game, and then pays 20x I think you know your times up!

I’ve actually ran fairly well on bonanza across a few sites in the last week so thought I’d try a few other games.

First up was money train 2. Id played it once and it was dreadful but thought I’d give it another chance.

£160 in deposits on just 20/30p stakes of absolutely nothing. Highest win was 11x. If u live in the uk I put it to you that this game is unplayable. The base is dreary as fuck and we can’t quick spin the boredom away. Just seeing a SINGLE bonus symbol is akin to winning the lottery getting 2 symbols which basically produces a shit win multiplied by 2 is akin to getting back to back +5’s on bonanza and should you be blessed with the feature then I’d run out and get yourself a euro millions ticket if the jackpot has rolled over for 8 years as I believe the odds of you winning it combined with the 8 year roll over are the same as the base game actually delivering a feature. Clearly made with the bonus buy in mind and everything else swept aside as an afterthought this game is utter filth unless you have the feature buy option.

Somehow I got stupidly involved in rainbow riches cluster gems or whatever the fuck this latest SG crap is. I’m sure they manage to install this shit as dead as fuck on reset for any new player ID’s having a pop. This one was £180 for a feature on what ended up as 60p stake which went for a huge £3. I’ve never seen so many dead spins followed by a .1x win. This pattern was relentless in the base game non stop. Vile horse shit from a company I’d expect nothing less from.

The same thing happened when I first played gremlins when it came out. Was hoping for a bit of turn over and fun without thinking of any massive potential. Not a single feature off a £100 deposit on minimum stake. Fuck off SG.

Deeply tilted by the above 2 which happened in consecutive sessions I went after a feature on deadwood(yeah I know) and I’m sure we can guess what happened here. Another ton vanishing without a single feature.

So £400 odd gone on 3 games on small stakes and yes I get 2 of them are high variance for just 1 feature that paid nothing.

Another reason why I always go back to bonanza. Yes it’s a let down feature wise a lot of the time and it can be a shit to bonus but it delivers more bang for your buck on anything else I ever play.

Im actually still a shade up this week due to bonanza but after playing that lot I’ve actually lost the will to live and just can’t bring myself to deposit again for a while. If I hadn’t had the raise to start with, those 3 sessions of absolutely nothing would have probably sent me over the edge also.

Feeling the same of late, after my Bruce win nothing has paid at all. £2 bonanza bonus paid £1.23, played visitors aswell around 3k spins for a 15x bonus. And many other slots that all played just awful. Just glad I didn't spank the lot of that money and got the kids and wife some goodies and got one more part for my PC. On a side note about 700 bees so far no swarm. Thinking of going down to 20p just to finish the bugger off.
Also the bonanza bonus was a five scatter with a retrigger.

Oh god, that cluster game has fucked me over as well. It rolled in £250 - 10 leprechauns after my first 3 spins on it. Since then had about 50 bonuses and the max win has been 30X. I need to actually question if this game is actually running to the rules....96% payout my balls.
