I had a go at the slots here the last week, but I'm kinda a little disapointed really since. I went for one of theese bonus runs, going for all the casinoes I hadnt checked out since last time. And - hehe - I tend going for bonus runs sine I never win anyway, :D

My problem was, however, playing at maby 7 casinoes where I deposited atleast $100 and wagered from $0,45 -> $2 pr bet. And, I also tried playing safe down in the $0,09 - $0,18 and such for many spins and so. Problem is, it seemed insanely hard to win anything. I lost like 1000 euroes on one casino which was just terrible, more like I was feeding it in disbelief hehe. The last I won was in harveys on $0.50 spins, I got retriggers 2 times during the spins. 20 + 25 + 12. I though this would give me back some of the money I lost (MG tends to go in throws it seems). But payout was only $30 something.

Any others in here feel the payouts are hard lately, or is it me as usual having major bad luck in this game?

You might want to read into "variance" (risk) kimss. Chances are you need to play a low variance slot and set your cashout sights lower. This way you get a longer session, but don't expect too many "big" wins. The option is to go for medium or higher variance. If you get lucky you'll get a bigger win, but they will be fewer and further between, and if you don't your money goes faster! Additionally, it's worth implementing a "cashout-as-you-go" policy to ensure you get something back. More on this available here at Meister at this page: https://www.casinomeister.com/how-to/how-to-manage-your-gambling-budget/

Knowledge of variance is key to any slots player to get the most from their money. :thumbsup:

ll I dont usually have the "super high" wins Im looking for, but it seems damn hard to get any out of the slots theese days. I deposited another 500 today at Casino Classic and Im having a real hard time getting any serious fun out of it. I must have gotten the freespins on 1.8 on Tally Ho 5 times, where 3 of the freespins had no wins at all (!). Sure, this just prooves me right since I noticed them bein really tight previous week aswell.

I had 2 wins on around 200, both in 2 spins, so atleast I could play for 1000 so to speak. However, it just keeps running out. And today I did major rolling on 0.09 and then 20-30 spins on 0.9 before switching.

Anyway, no use for me nagging here and feeling sorry for my self, :D Better just to uninstall again, :D

See you in a year, however I really never got the chance to get into the warmth this time. Just ran out!

Later people,

Even if you're extracting the maximum possible value from the bonuses, it's really hard to win.

Some slot bonuses are constructed in such a way that if you grind them out with really small bets, you're virtually guaranteeing yourself a net loss. Other times, if you're playing them aggressively, you may have a positive outcome over the long run, but you could have stretches of 10-20 sessions where you bust out.

And of course, there's the dirty little secret of playing without a bonus: the house has an advantage of at least 5% or so on slots, and you'll also have more losing sessions than winning ones.

:) Seems to me its far above 5%. I still wonder when playing in MG casinoes, do I play against "one" slot or do I infact play against all of them? Seems to me loosing on many slots make it easier winning on the next one. Infact, I had a statistical effect on this in Spin Palace last year, where after loosing big I usually took 5 spins on $7 on Good to Go and in 2/3 times I got the scatters and usually got 4 and 5. (I have the player logs to proove it, however strange this sounds. I think I have some %2500 payout or so on $7). However - never if I won on another slot in advance, always when I lost $500-$1000 on the others.

Anyways, that %5 is not going in my favour, :D

I could also nothing win the last few weeks and today i've deposited 250.- on a MG Casino (Allslots) and after making 500 spins with a 1.- bet on Loaded, my money was away, without any free spins!
Probably i should never play at any MG in the future, because there i have always much pain!

So RTG is the best for me, because there i had won the most at the last 2 months :)

500 spins without any freespins that really is sucky sucky, :/ On the other hand you should probably be happy... Nothing worse than hitting freespins after wasting $250 on $1 and winning nothing!

Maby I aswell should think on trying that other system, MG do really suck at the moment! I am studying my stats now, and they do not look good! (I always dowload the player logs and feed them to my stats system to generate some detailed numbers for me).
