Why is it so hard to get a decent win on Netent slots?

    Hi guys,

    I am playing Netent slots only since a few months but I am already fed up with them.
    I find it incredibly hard to hit anything decent on them.
    No matter what slot I play it is just utterly crap.

    My first ever experience with them was great,the first day I played Netent slots I got 2 good wins on DOA in freespins feature,got an amazing win on Silent Run with the torpedo bonus,5 ships and biggest win saved for last and got a nice hit on Fisticuffs but that's all she wrote.
    Now few months down the line DOA hasn't given me anything decent on freespins at all and when I see winner screenshots gallery I see how many people hit big on this slot I can't understand it.
    I can't even get 2 or 3 wilds in freespins mode and this is after loads of freespins modes in past months.

    Silent Run,when I get wild feature I might get 2 or 3 wilds and with torpedo bonus it will be max 3 ships with crap prizes.
    JATB,praised as a great slot,well for me it is even hard to trigger the freespins and when it hits it pays lousy 5x-10x bet.. :eek2:
    Not even unlocking any extra wilds and stuff...

    So is it just being unlucky or are Netent slots in general tight ass slots and thus botomless moneypits?

    I find MG slots give much more playingtime and value for money with more chances of a decent hit.
    Also Novomatic slots/Greentube have given me much more wins then any Netent slot ever will do.

    To hit big on these you have to bet big I assume,for example egg o matic.

    DOA can give big even on €0.09 spins,I know,but I haven't had the pleasure to experience this yet.

    What's your thoughts guys?


    Mark.

    What is in your opinion a decent win? And how much money/spins have you sunk into Netent games?

    Someone started the exact same thread yesterday.

    When you're playing high variance games (DoA and JatB) you have to expect this kind of results most of the time.

    As for Silent Run and Fisticuff, you just can't win there (your "big win" was probably a malfunction :D). You should avoid these.

    Yeah I don't play Netent, they were the second to go (just after RTG), I only play MG now (and some Rival) and even then no such luck. I'm not a fan of Netent at all, one big win on Reel Steal six months ago and then the games have been all gobble gobble ever since. Gets a bit old. My opinion, stick to MG :)

    It's ok, there are so many similar threads in the many pages here.
    Some threads (...why am i losing, ..this software rigged? ...won't pay, ...cheats.. (broke terms) ...cheats..(software), ..what's your favourite ...how much do you...just keep popping up because the older ones are pushed down, some older threads (winner screens, what are you listening to etc.) are just updated, because they are either very popular, get their own section and/or get stickied.

    On topic:

    I don't have a problem with winning big on Netent whatsoever, neither on MG or 3dice.. the frequency of huge hits is about the same on all softwares, of course directly influenced by what i play, and how often i play it.

    The thing is, most gamblers, even veterans, often tend to forget the good and just the remember the bad, which is quite normal human behavior, but their depiction of good is sometimes a bit distorted by what is insanely awesome:)

    20 to 50 x bet is a decent return. 100x bet is pretty damn good, anything up to 1000 x is extremely good, and anything over 1000 x is just plain against the odds.

    If you remember this and check every session to see if you had anything on this scale, you might see that most losing sessions weren't that bad, but you got average playtime.

    Also a lot of players that visit the forums, like these, will see huge winnings posted everywhere.
    They will try to copy those, yet forget that most of the slots that are posted are insainly high variance:

    Take the all popular DOA: there are several threads about it, most of them juiced up with a few spicy screenshots, or great experiences.

    However, browse the forum attentively, and you will see many people claiming to never even have hit the five wilds or scatters, this after loads of spins.

    If you did, you probably think you can again, and even expect it.
    This is the gamblers psyche: it's deluding yourself.
    Of course it can happen, but never truly expect it, and you'll be fine.

    I urge you to play some Netent slots you haven't tried yet, whenever i did that (with a healthy bankroll of course) i found out that a lot of games have interesting features, streaky natures and much bigger win potential then i suspected.

    I was taking a real bad hit on Netent too of late but it sorta turned itself around last week when i hit over 1000xbet on silent run and DOA also a few decent hits on the low variance slots).

    Thank goodness, i was beginning to pull my hair out.

    So i hope your luck changes!! :)

    I was thinking about doing a little survey topic so we can see how multiple players experience netent, something like:

    rate from 1 to 10, 1 beeing not at all and 10 beeing fully agreed

    A When you are on a streak, does it feel like no matter what slot you choose, it will always land a nice prize? (I hear many people say it feels like its all predetermined no matter what slot you choose)
    B Have you noticed the netent slots paying less the last two to three weeks?
    C Is it hard to score a big win with netent? (200x upwards)
    D Did you land more big hits when you first played netent

    These are the things i hear other people say on the forum. All four are very much applicable for me, but i have to admit theres little else to compare it with, because i play netent almost exclusively

    Would anyone be interested in the results? if so i'll make a topic

    Aaah DOA ...Let me assure you, you are not alone ;)

    Please don't let the screenshots fool you. There are a couple or 3 people, who have been beyond extremely lucky on that bastard (their luck has got to end too, some time), and if you notice, it's pretty much the same people posting screenies from it. In the mean time you, I and a few other dozen people are being beat to death by it ;)

    That's not true for everyone I can assure you that. I will need to play that game for many months more to pay back what it has given me.
    For me it has been a lucky game. Still is, but I don't play it all the time. That would be stupid and I don't want it to get tired of me ;)

    Well, I have to admit, I'm probably up a bit, thanks to ONE hit. Got 5 scatters at $1.80 on my second go on it, but never ever had a half decent bonus round on it yet.

    8k without 5 wilds is not even too bad. But the annoying thing is, if you hit those 5 wilds, but not in a row and get something like 100xbet return. That stinks :p.

    A No.
    B No.
    C Yes - just like ALL other softwares, a win of more than x200 is VERY rare (that's why I don't chase them).
    D No.

    Players need to understand that the biggest wins come from the highest variance slots - as do the longest and most painful losing streaks. You can't have it both ways.
    IMHO you are far better off playing lower variance slots and looking for wins of x50 or more. Set your sights lower and you are much less likely to be disappointed.

    My best NetEnt slots so far have been Evolution, Frankenstein, Jack Hammer 1 and 2, Groovy Sixties (high variance!) and Gonzo's quest. I'm sure there are many other great NetEnt slots too, which I haven't played enough myself to fully appreciate.
    Like others have already said, you need to try some different slots to find the ones that give you decent play-time & the chance of a modest profit. Chasing a "mega-win" all the time is almost certain to end in disappointment IMHO.
