Why do I continue to play at Rival?

I just wanted to know if anyone else has had the luck that I've had lately. I figured if some other people did, I wouldn't feel like such a loser. I have lost all of my money at Rival this past month. It seems since they did their upgrade, had their birthday bash, and have been having these "withdrawal" problems, I can't win a thing. It's just nuts. I play Fantasy Fortunes only because I've lost $4500 betting pennies on it this last month. That's just unbelievable. The only reason I keep playing the darn machine is because I think, I've got to win something back, I mean with bonuses and all, I've put almost $10,000 into that machine. The bonus rounds are ridiculous. I mean, you wait like 100 spins for one, and you end up with $6.00, if you're lucky. I just went through $389 in 1/2 hour again! And I say it like I'm surprised!! LOL. I don't even remember what a winning round looks like on that machine. I just picked the Knight (which is the bonus round where you have any chance of making any money) the first time 6 times in a row!! That's unreal. Anyway, just wondering if anyone else is having problems. And to top it off, I've been waiting over a month for withdrawals. I guess that's before all these "Problems" began happening, when I could actually win something. Actually, almost 6 weeks for some withdrawals. Anyway, just looking for feedback so I don't feel luck such a loser. I don't think I will ever win again. :eek:

Well, let's see. I deposited three times yesterday - one lasted 5 minutes, one lasted 6 minutes and the last one I played about 15 minutes. Never played more than $.60 per spin. Never say Cleo, or Frankenstein, or the fish on the new Islot game.

Why do I keep depositing? I just keep thinking that it can't be that bad all the time. However, after last night, I uninstalled all of them. If I get a free chip, I will play, if not then I won't.

I contacted the rep about it and he told me he didn't see anything wrong with the play. I guess he thought I was fishing for a free chip. I get enough of them so I wasn't begging. So I exercised my right and wiped them off.

Use to love the games and could actually pick up a little but like you said since the upgrade and all they seem to be "tighter than an old maid's garters" so to speak. :D

So true, I guess I should follow you, would save me alot of money. I actually made my two deposits today last 1 1/2 hours, almost fell out of my chair. Usually $50 lasts me about 10 minutes. But like I said, I got lucky at first, had $389, nowhere near my cashout requirements, and lost that all in 1/2 hour. And the said thing is, that's the norm now.

Ive been having a click2pay prob so its been well over a week for me to make a deposit at the rival casinos. Last time i did play was all the same for me. Best i hit was 4 passports in travel bug got me on second round win was 40 on 60 cent spin. That was it for me not more then 10 cents in the new rival islot and very very few free spin or bonus rounds. I guess maybe i should thank my bank for my click2pay probs that have saved me some money. Now will see click2pay will be back working tomorrow for me but i think i might try something else. Other casinos i cant hit a thing with is playboy and intercasino strange enough just before i lost c2pay made 2 deposits at both no bonus rounds free spins nothing deposit didnt last more then 10 15 min at best. Yet just before i did make that deposit i was playing for fun and boom was 20 dollar lines bonus rounds and so on same old story, but the sad part is like others i still deposit thinking maybe the slots are hot tonight just not sure why they are so tight the past month. Anyways gl everyone let me know if you hit anything.

Im actually pretty happy w/ Rival play - Im a very low roller but my small deposits seem to last @ Rival farther than any other software. I have made a few withdrawals and have had no problems getting them within 3 days to my QT account. I am very concerned with the threads I'm reading on Rival casinos. I will continue to play there and I hope I dont regret it. :)

I've got two complaints to add to this thread.

First off, I tried to use the ACH option to put a $150 withdrawl right into my checking account at Simon Says. I was informed, that since I deposited through ewalletxpress, I had to withdrawl that way. Problem is, ewallet charges 10% upon withdrawl of any funds. Sounds like the two are in a collaboration of some sort, to keep any winnings in the "system". Absolutely pathetic!!!

Also, I just fed back $290 of my winnings (yes, the $150 was included), via 4-play Aces and Faces Video Poker. In all the years I have played VP, I have never had such a problem drawing a hand in my life! My money was gone in about 45 minutes, playing $5 per 4 hands. At one point, I had not impoved on a 3-of-a-kind, or an open-end straight draw, or a 4-flush draw in 20 consecutive situations!!! That's a total of 80 hands!!! What are the odds of that?

I guess I'll just have to stop gambling online. I swore off RTG (Rigged Too Good) software a while ago, and now I guess Rival can bite me, too. Since I'm a US player (in Illinois where MG has banned), looks like I'll be back to hitting the B&M casinos.

Turn right, then right. then right again
I must admit that Scurvy Bitch (aka Scary Rich) has been very tight lately for me (doesnt seem to be any counts around - and no I didnt put the "o" in that word by mistake :D )

Its important to realise that we all go through ebbs and flows, and its not a bad idea to either take a break ( like i am) or change software for a while. Im not sure why this works, but I think it puts me into 'reset' mode and I dont play to chase my losses any more - I just play for entertainment, and it oftens turns out better for me anyway.

My experience tells me that there is no real way to know if a casino has tightened their slots, particularly on high-variance games. So, we may suspect it (and we may be right), but you will always see players posting in winner screenshots with big wins on games you 'suspect' have been tampered with, which kinda blows that theory out of the water really. Sometimes, it really sucks being a slot player ;)

Just my opinion of course :)

yeah, sorry about the derail.:oops:

back on topic. i also noticed a much harder time winning on scary rich, but it hasn't bothered me too much. it really hasn't been any different than my experiences playing at any casino, online or b&m. sometimes, a game just seems determined to load up on your money. the important thing to consider, IMHO, is that there are also waves of wonderful wins to create that balance of enjoyment. if it's always downhill, than after a few weeks, it might be a good time to take a break or try a different casino. especially with some of the rival and 3dice games (high variance), it can seem you never win.... but that one hit changes everything around. of course, the problem is that if you never get that great hit, your play will seem utterly futile.

Well guys, thought I was going to be able to finally have some good news at Rival. I deposited $32, for the third time in about 1 hour, but anyway, on my last 32, claimed the 100% bonus, and had to wager 50 times ($3500). You're not gonna believe this, but I hit $990! I got up to $1200, but nowhere near my wagering requirements. By the time I reached them, had $350, barely over what I deposited just today. Anyway, of course Fantasy Fortunes took my $1100. Why am I not surprised? That's the fourth time this month I've gone through over $1000 on that machine. I'm a glutton for punishment I guess. If anyone would like to try it, it has $5,000 of my money, with bonuses that's almost $10,000. That's why I keep playing, I think it's got to pay some back. For goodness sakes, I only bet pennies!! I have never had such a run of bad luck in my life. I've been gambling for 10 years, and I don't think I've lost in my whole life what I've lost these last 6 weeks. It's unreal. But, my fault. On that machine, if you meet your wagering requirements, and are ahead by even $10, I guess you should cash out. Anyway, wah wah wah, I think they monitor this, because I've had REALLY bad luck since I started bi**hing on here. LOL.

i think its time to give rival a rest, gambling is meant to be fun but with all of the problems at rival, very slow payments, tightness of the slots, crappy CS, it just isnt fun playing there,

Heidisue, I've been reading your posts and I'm sorry but I just gotta say something. I hope you don't get offended because I don't mean to kick you when your are down, but why do you keep going back for more when you've said many times how burnt you are about your losses? You keep talking about how much you've lost at Rival and it's a pretty sizable amount. You are admitting that you are chasing your losses and depositing again and again and repeatably losing. If you are getting ahead at times but busting out before meeting the WR, maybe you should consider not taking the bonuses or just taking a break.

if it's any consolation, i've never hit ANYTHING on that game either :oops:. certain games seem to be, shall we say, lacking in terms of presence in the winner's ss thread.

"I'm a glutton for punishment I guess"... secondary definition of a slot player.;)

I was playing the Scary Rich, in fun mode... hit 5 scattered frankensteins for the first time ever and they actually paid NOTHING...totally surprised...whats the point of having scatters if they don't pay anything but a bonus round that is a loss anyway from the cost of reaching it?

Duh? I guess Rival still doesn't get it...happy players come back and blow more than they cash out ...the cashout is a ritual with many to prove it can be done but they give it right back because they can and know they will have fun...again they have lost sight of the "big" picture..

You can't run a casino on lousy payscale, tight machines, slow withdrawals...you end up losing the players you have in the end..

IMO Rival was mean in cancelling the autoplay function for free play mode. Some of us like to go quickly to the feature mode to see what we can get. Now we have to click till we reach the feature. Takes the fun away and hope you play for real?

I am glad you mentioned this for I feel the very same way...the first time I hit autoplay and the pop up said it was for real players only I almost laughed thinking how low can one casino go....to make you deposit?

I guess they must be losing many players with the pay scale they created and the truly bad bonus round wins..

Again, I really do enjoy the games (which is a shame in the long run for them) and play in fun mode only unless they give me a chip or two, and I also have not deposited in almost 1 and 1/2 years...because of the discussion way back in the forum on the pay outs..I thought that they truly do not care to keep players happy and wanting to come back..so, I kept my money..
