I was playing harveys the other day cost about 400.00 to get a bonus round Finally!!! and sure enough paid 0 credits, 3 times that session, I dont know whos bright idea it was to have a bonus pay nothing but that seems like a slam in the face after all its hard to get sometimes!!! I thought the 1.00 bonus round wins were bad but nothing???? there should be some kind of consolation prize to trip the bonus round in my opinion. LOL

Harveys?

I am surprised that Harveys has this problem. The wins are all pretty small so should be hitting more frequently that at a slot like Thunderstruck. 3 times in one session almost seems rigged!! If the slots are random it should not matter whether the spins are in the bonus rounds or not, the same probabilities should apply. I would expect slots like Thunderstruck that give many losing spins to yield dud bonus rounds, but I would not expect it of the low variance slots.

It has happened to me twice actually and even though it is intended, I consider it a bug because of the following.

If you hit a retrigger the random multiplier will start... It is nonsense,there is
no win. Why start the multiplier then. It ended on 25 actually but just multiplied the insult by 25 in my case.

cool thanks! I really dont care that this happens but WHY? I dont see how that is good for any players moral or for the long run benefit of the enjoyment of playing machines like that. Adding a fixed even 2.00 small instant payout on the bonus round trip like on other machines would seem more appropriate. I aggree that hopefully the larger wins spread out to the people that are getting shafted like that on bonus rounds. To much of that 0 bonus and the player wont ever want to play again, might throw the laptop , punch the lcd screen, yell at the wife (no offense anyone), send the kids to the room and so on. Been there done that- except the wife part, shes usually yelling at me. Good luck

I agree with you that with a game like Harveys, where the scatters aren't really scatters, that precious bonus round should at least earn a fixed something.

If i'm not doing well, it's likely that i won't be doing very well either if i ever manage to get to a bonus round. So, rather than wasting more money on a losing proposition, i look for another game that is more credit-friendly (and some day there aren't any, or so it seems).

Got to agree with Simmo on this one.
If you never got 0 return on bonus spins - that would imply that it is 'rigged'.
Much better to know it is random & that you really have got a chance of hitting a biggie! :)

Ladies Nite has been very naughty to me on the bonus rounds recently... I can't complain at all, as I've hit some lovely one's in the past - but nada over the past few days.... x10 at most, on every set of spins. I think I need to change my thumbnail icon thing up there!!!
