Whats with RTG changing the style/behavior of the spins for their games -- OLD n NEW

About a week ago I logged into Jackpot Capital and found that Trex has been updated -- almost looks hi-def now but what bothers me is the spin behavior is jerky and quick -- just like with Loch Ness Loot. If you get 2 triggering scatters, the remaining reels come down much faster than before.

So then tonight I see the Trex update at ClubWorld and after several minutes of downloading it now spins the same way too. Not all the games do this but most of the new ones and I dont like it at all -- in fact, even on a spin I win, I just hate watching it come down.

WHY OH WHY is RTG making this change? I'm guessing its to push us thru more spins... or some idiot in a lab somewhere thinks the faster/erratic spin behavior is better so they are going this way.

Is there any other reason for the updates not only to new games but now older ones?

Too bad cuz these are both very good casinos --- I dont want to have to give up on RTG like I did Rival.

I usually leave the game when that happens as it's too jerky and fast for me. I only noticed it on a few games but they're the games that I like. Hopefully they'll settle down.

RTG should update their platform to remove the maximum win on older games. I notice it isn't in effect for some of the newer games - f.e. Vulcan. Why is this outdated rule still on the older games like Mystic Dragon and TRex, where it is theoretically possible to hit way over the max win in free spins?

There is still a max win on Vulcan. It is 150,000x line bet.

Prior to the change I could estimate with a 95% accuracy as to whether individual eggs will land on the screen. Not any more. It spins for a much lesser period and not the full length of the reel.

Actually noticed this on inet the other day, I thought it was just me! Same with loose caboose - you could tell if the third scatter was gonna land due to seeing it appear at a certain time (I'm sure you know what I mean if you play a lot of rtg :p).

Noted, I stand corrected :p It's still over the normal, which is 50,000x line bet.

To put in perspective, playing 0.04c per line (1$ on 25 lines, obv), max win on Vulcan is 6000$, on the others its 2000$. Huge difference.

Trex was my favorite RTG game , but no more.:mad:
I noticed this changes first at Jackpot capital, Grande vegas and then at Inetbet.
I find this new way spinning of reels very frustrating, and I am glad that no one else likes it too.

The T-rex slot ,together with several other slots are supposed to be quite entertaining but now the feeling is poor. I just tried it again and disliked it. I am sure more players will be inclined to play less at these slots and overall patronage at RTG will suffer. Can one of the accredited groups, CWC,Slotocash or JC have a word with these jerks.(pun intended)

I uninstalled after playing this morning. It's not only the new games but the old ones as well. My favorite is crystal water and I can't stand the way it's spinning now. I like to get comfortable, watch the reels spin and relax. Even if they did get the jerkiness out of the reels the spin would still be much faster.

Feels like I'm speed spinning..lol

I only play 3 or 4 games and Trex was one of my faves... no more. So if they do this to any of the rest, I just won't play RTG any more.

It's not about winning -- we all like to win -- but we know odds are we're going to LOSE and LOSE BIG. So if they take away the entertainment while spinning, then WHY BOTHER?

I emailed Jackpot Capital Mgmt to ask about this and pointed them to this thread -- no one on any of the forums or VIP affiliates I talk to like it. In fact, everywhere I got people are saying this makes them want to play elsewhere. RTG is making a HUGE mistake!

Made a few small deposits at RTGs recently, but I just don't enjoy playing it this way.
I hope they will change back the way off spinning reels, or I am sure I wont be playing at RTG casinos anymore.

Change RTG spinning back to before!

agreed.. me neither. I'll go back to 3dice.... my only other real option for U.S. //

Be sure to email support and the managers for your RTG casinos and COMPLAIN! Otherwise they will NEVER change it back

They are broke that's why they are 'fixing' it to allow more spins and squeeze more from you and me.

Yes I think that's 100% it. And as for Trex specifically... the last 5 years, Trex has provided some of my biggest wins and screenshots.

But the last 10 to 11 deposits, I've seen the average bonus round pay LESS THAN 1x (one times) bet. My biggest Trex free spins/bonus paid me 6x bet.
And just to test, I've been betting 50cents or so...

That's probably too small a sample to say for sure but anyone else getting unusually low paying Free Spins? I have also not gotten 4 or 5 eggs on Trex
this year after doing on numerous times last year. Wagered somewhere around $5 MILLION USD this year to date... on RTG without hitting 5 eggs..
again I only play Trex, Diamond Dozen, Triple Toucan and occassionally Paydirt ..... that' about it.

Of those 4, I've only hit the biggest spin possible 1 time -- 5 birds in free spins on Triple Toucan -- sadly on a low bet like 75cents or $1 I think.

And of all the years at RTG -- not once ever hit MAX PAYOUT... something like $25million in wagers -- according to my affiliates... maybe more since I dont have an affiliate account for every RTG casino.

Given its so hard to hit the biggest payout -- why the MAX PAYOUT at all? The chances of hitting big are sooooo incredibly in the odds of the casino.

Still, if you do play RTG -- only ones worth playing imho are Jackpot Capital and ClubWorld -- at least you get paid and their VIP service is very good.

I have emailed managers for these groups about WHY the spin behavior has changed -- esp on Trex (an older game) and so far NO REPLIES in nearly a week.

I guess the majority of players weren't using that handy-dandy Stop Spin button .....

Actually I'm probably one of the few who don't mind the whole new spin ordeal.
Mainly because being able to eventually guess you were getting a bonus. Eventually took some of the fun out of getting the bonus for me.
So the new style of not being able to tell purely on the reel spin is sort of nice.
The only complaint I have about the updated RTG is the constant when you've run out of money. Opening of a cashier window to get you to deposit again. I guess I like the old style your out of money, do you wish to deposit box. Then this new common deposit, here's the credit card screen. All ready for you to make another deposit ordeal.
I guess that might just be me though.

I have noticed a change in teh game paydirt over the past few months. YOu hardly get the free spins anymore, and when you feel like one should about to drop, a nugget falls instead.
When you do hit you almost always get the gold rush feature, that never has any nuggets in it and that iis supposed to have more. It was my favorite game, but after this , in three casinos playing the same way the last couple months I stopped playing it. It just drains the bank roll.

As far as the spins, I dont mind that I usually play the stop button because I like fast play, but the jerkiness in games like lockness and build the beaver, drive me nuts so I do not play them. They need to fix that.

I play in Turbo mode so hadn't noticed a lot of this although I did notice it seemed to be playing oddly in free spins. I just thought it was my computer. On T-Rex I agree, it kills me to get the retrigger during the feature and still walk away with .90. Really?

I seem to do the best on Texas Tycoon so for now that's what I'm sticking with!

Yep i think I had one retrigger on Trex 3 or 4 times and still won less than $5 on a $1 bet. The "Trex" just never showed up in 20+ spins.

I also dont like the jerky spins... nor the cashier popping up. Everything is pointing towards faster spins, faster deposits... give us your $$$ mentality..

but one of my latest withdrawals took way too long to get ... I reversed half of it... another casino sent me a check and my bank's been trying to collect on the funds for 4 weeks now -- so its pending.

Takes a millisecond to deposit.... takes days or weeks to get it out..... they've got to make the whole experience more friendly ... that's what 3dice was trying to do when they came around -- and they've done everything right EXCEPT they dont have enough games... not even close yet... maybe in another 3 or 4 years but by then Vegas and Atlantic City will be in the game with online/mobile gaming... U.S. is tired to losing revenue overseas

Meantime, RTG --> put it back like it was!!
