Ok this is going to be another thread where i bitch about losing...

For the last 6 months i have lost around 20 k Euros playing various NetEnt casinos. I swear since my last big win of 10 k Euros. I have not been able to double my deposite, every casino and every game i play is totally dead! Ive been playing online fore atleast 4 years and im under the impression that the games behaviour is changing. Just see all the new NetEnt slots, basicly its impossible to win on any of em.. they just slowly suck your bankroll dry. My latest session today at Paf casino which was the last account i had open for some reason (I have now closed every netent casino account there is) I made 3 deposites of 125 Euros each. I diddent even get one free spinn/bonus round!!! All dead spinns.. My biggest win? Hold on..... A whopping 5X bet. Now how is this even fucking possible? It just blows my mind...I guess this is it for me..
Gambling is no longer fun for me. And it should be entertainment not a headache. But its not fun when your just watching your money being sucked away.. I might aswell just throw my money in the toilet rather than playing online these days.

I know some of you might concider me a sore loser, but i dont belive anyone can have such bad luck.. No way! Its not just me, everyone i know playing online has had terrible losses over the last months. And i truly belive this shit is not random at all.. Its rigged or programmed/controlled in som way.

Im sure there is someone on here who has had the same experience latley, cuz it is something difrent about the slots latley im sure of it!

What slots have you been playing and at what stakes versus your bankroll?

If you ask the casino(s) for your stats they should be able to tell you what RTPs you've been running at over the last six months.

Part of the problem is down to the variance profile with a lot of NetEnt slots, whereby the incredibly low variance with very few big wins can make a session that is actually OK RTP-wise, still be a pretty bad losing session overall, just a long and drawn out one!

During the first 3 months of 2013 I spent a lot of money on Netent with no cashout. I'm talking about 100+ deposits here (remember: this is the number of deposits). I was playing mostly Starburst (80% of the time) and sometimes Beach/Evolution/Wild Rockets. Then I woke up and realized that, as a low roller who likes to withdraw when my balance reaches 8x to 10x my original deposit, I just couldn't win at those games.

Since then, my NetEnt diet is 80% DoA & Real Steel, I've got dozens of cashouts and I'm comfortably ahead.

For this session i was playing 0.40 - 1 euro bets. Avarage 0.50. I played DOA,Gonzo,JABS and starburst. Starburst is a joke can go 50 dead spinns and then give a 1x bet then another 10 dead spinns and so on. This session is prolly THE worst ive ever had.. Ive been very lucky on Gonzo in the past, but latley its dead.. It seams its waaay harder to get free spinns thatn it used to be. And if they come they pay nothing.

I hadn't really given NETENT much time until maybe 3 months ago when I had a good play of a bunch of their games at Stan James. That first session I thought wow, you really get your moneys worth with these games! For example I deposited just £5 to get the welcome 400% max £20 bonus, and that £25 credit lasted me all night playing various slots inc Robin Hood, Dead or Alive, Starburst, Gonzos Quest, Jack Hammer ... I remember asking where I was at with the wagering about 4 hours in and was at around £350 of £400 ... but it was getting late and stupidly upped my bets a little and lost the lot (lol) ..

Anyway since then I had quite a few similar experiences where a small deposit would last a real long time but the very biggest wins I saw would be 100x bet and those were few and far between ... free spins definitely can be VERY hard to get, gonzos is horrible needing the symbols on a winline to get the free spins, that really sucks...

Even though Microgaming has also been quite brutal to me recently I still feel I have a more exciting session there and HAVE cashed out a nice profit last weekend too ... my advice would be if Netent is really messing with your head, try something else. Good luck!

I play two NetEnt-slots DoA and Wild Turkey from time to time. Ever since I stopped playing every other game and playing other softwares i'm cashing out much more often.

NetEnt-slots gives you more playtime with the 5-50x bet wins but to actually hit something worth cashing out is really hard.

Wish they were more then good graphics. :(

Very recognizable!! When I started playing GQ the free spins would almost always produce a medium/good hit (say 50-200x, sometimes bigger). And when I did hit a losing streak, it would always save me by dropping in 20 free spins or some blue masks on my lasts 20 cents

But nowadays it seems insanely hard to hit the free falls and when I do, it rarely pays anything worth writing home about. I think I've gone more than 50 regular free falls and two diagonals without a good hit... Almost as if the slot wanted to tease me in the beginning, only to eat up twice as much later on.

As I'm writing about my experiences on gonzo's quest I realise this is basicly the same for my entire Netent carreer! One big 200 eur win in the beginning and then it went completely dry for several months :(

When I play NetEnt slots my average bet is usually higher than on other softwares since most NetEnt slots are low variance. With €5+ bets a good run of 10-30x wins will actually add up to something.

I have had lots of 100-300x hits or free spin totals on NetEnt slots (Gonzo's Quest mostly) so they can pay if you're lucky ;)

And I have to admit that I don't like DoA nowhere as much as most people on this forum. I admit that it can pay huge but I just don't find it entertaining enough to keep me playing that long.

Yes, this makes sense

Or maybe not. When I first started playing Gonzo's Quest some 4 years ago, I made a decent profit. But now it's so hard to get the freefalls, and when I get them, I only win 60-70 Euros. :what:

NetEnt is not worse or better than other Software Providers.

With every single software you will have days of luck and days of no luck. At least you can influence all of that a bit with your decision playing more high or low variance slots. But itn the end every single slot can kick your ass on a bad day.

I've had winning streaks and horrible streaks with every single software out there, except 3Dice. There i'm still waiting for my winning streak :)

Does luck have anything to do with it? I am no expert, and those slots are software programs. I think that it's all programmed.

I would sure hate to rag on you but where's the discipline? Surely in the process of losing 20k euros you should have felt your luck was bad. When you are unable to double your deposits either you take a break or try something different like placing your deposit on a table game of even chance. If you win, you double your deposit and which will make you feel better. A feel-good factor is important in gambling otherwise you would simply despair.

Sorry, but without saying how much you were betting per spin, that is a meaningless statement.

If you mean programed to not let you win in a totally random way, then you are saying the softwares are "rigged".
If you truly believe this, then common sense says you should NEVER spend another penny gambling on or off-line on ANY game which is run by a computer program.

I am not that negative. Of course it's rigged, but it is rigged to win as well. :)

I have not played Gonzo in the past but I have tried it everywhere its horrifically hard to trigger the FS... Yes its averages out in the long run and you can trigger the FS 3 times in 20 spins. But they generally always pay crap.

Dead Spins and 150x to 200x to trigger a 20 - 50x bet FS.

I have thousands of rounds on it and managed a best of 300x. I keep away from it now.

Of course!! I only said i didn't have luck at 3dice so far. Thats all. And they dont have a lot o low variance slots. But of course i would never say that theres a problem with the software. Its all
about luck.
