What Slot "extras" annoy you ?

    Similar to "what slot features do you hate?" thread ...

    I really don't want to earn a pointless "achievement" for getting 5OAK 9's in thunderstruck II

    I also find it really patronising when some character jumps for joy every time you get a 0.5x line hit . See the picture - yes it's playmoney... no way am I spending real money on this pile of s*&*!

    When Jack from JATB pokes his head out for a 4x win I feel like throwing the axe at it :p

    Even worse when casinos do it and say like "Well done you levelled up and earnt a new badge !! " but you get NOTHING !!?! I'm not a child I don't need a shiny badge . Give me fs or a bonus yes great - otherwise go away !!
    Am I just jaded lol ? Does anyone actually enjoy this stuff or get a sense of achievement from it ? What Slot "extras" annoy you ?: Joy.jpg,May 10, 2016

    Koi Princess' extra bet. It doesn't get rid of the annoying teases I hate seeing and adds nothing.

    lol, I really don't much stress it. If the animation too far outweighs the enjoyment/win potential of the game, I just don't play it. But I DO get why all the bells and whistles - you can see it at the B & Ms...there's those as love all the hooplah. Some people really do view slots as entertainment/video games; otherwise, we'd click and spin and our balance would go up/down and that's it, so there must be a market/demand for it.

    Sure, some are just overdone, glossy, slick, eye-torturing eye candy...pretty much every game in the 3D Slots Series comes to mind: style (?) over substance.


    Do do what parents have done for millenia - zone out the background noise til you hear the 'important' scream. :D

    If I had to add an annoying slots extra, it's the ridiculously slow win count up that you can't click away, especially when you know the total win in the little box below.

    Gemix and Cloud Quest ranks/levels. What's the difference between World 1 and 500 in Gemix? Answer: There's none. Well maybe the random wild trigger but that changes every 3 times anyway, keeping count of hundreds of levels is pointless. Similarly the rank in Cloud Quest seemingly does nothing.

    I also really hate the character popups in games like Bridesmaids. In Bridesmaids the characters don't popup when you win .. They just do it randomly. And talk shit. And they have zero effect on anything. If a popup meant I'm guaranteed a win this spin for example - I'd be all over it. But that's not it. So why?! :mad:

    The achievements have already been mentioned but I agree. Why do I care if my achievement table is all golden - or isn't. I am a sucker for visual style in games so if it had some sort of impact on game - ex. changed symbol style to show that you've unlocked all achievements or something similar then perhaps .. but why do I care if all it does is change it from brown to golden on paytable? I don't look at the paytable, I know the wins anyway. This may slightly contradict what I said above but I don't think it's really a part of the '' visual style '' of the game if random chicks pop out the sides of the screen to spout some nonsense here and there. That's just plain annoying.

    Alternatively if pursuing and unlocking achievements actually awarded something - new feature(s) for example, then I'd be all over for it.

    On top of huge BIG WIN text on your screen, you get massive celebrations associated with it. You'd think with the fanfares and visuals flying everywhere you'd have at least won the jackpot, not a 10x bet '' Big Win '' or 50x '' Super Mega Hyper Ultra Gigantic Win '' :rolleyes:

    - gonzo dancing on 10x win after 337 dead spins

    - slots where big win is triggered by 11x win (why cant all slots be like bust the bank, i dont think even 50x qualifies as big win there :p)

    - having to buy additional squirrels in Foxin wins again and similar slots

    - any pick a "insert objects name here" feature that can award 3x bet, thats just mean really

    - congratulations msgs after winning 1x your bet in any FS round. Seriously, is it too hard to program slots so it doesnt look like its making fun of you :mad:

    This, has to be the worst kind of slots especially if you haven't played that one before - although it's nice when a slot you haven't played chucks out a 'big win' & it actually is that, a big win.

    I play on an old machine, and when playing Gonzo it really gets goddamn annoying when he starts moonwalking and stuff. I guess it'd be ok if he had a really good reason for it. But no, everytime you whip out that x1 win he starts prancing. Similarly the coin rain, I guess it would be ok if you could skip it but it's pretty annoying getting a subpar bonus say 20 freefalls, getting barely x20 and he starts celebrating like something just erased the 100 rounds of blanco you did to get there.

    Had this win last night - wilds on their own count for NOWT!
    i.e. 5 wilds on a win-line pay $0.

    Despite the high frequency of this sticky wilds bonus - that is an annoying feature if ever I saw one... :(
