I was going to post this in the EggOmatic thread but didn't wanna derail it. I was wondering if any of you have had really bad and sometimes insanely bad luck on NetEnt...

The more I play NetEnt, the more it becomes apparent that the Slots are geared to rape you... and properly. I have always rated 3Dice as the tightest software I have played... Well NetEnt has now taken top prize.:notworthy - I have ventured away from DOA a bit to mix it up ....here are my results:

In the last few weeks some examples:

750 Euros @ 1.80 - Busted - EggOmatic

150 Euros @ 0.40c - Busted - Space Wars

150 Euros @ 0.70c - Busted - Starburst

450 Euros @ 1.00 - 1.40 - Busted - Wild Turkey (My last session - 8 Free Spin features ALL paid 20x or less)

80 Euros @ 0.20c - Busted - J&TBS

$400 @ $1 - Busted - J&TBS

$2000 @ 1.50 - $3 - Busted - Wild Rockets

450 Euros @ 1.25 - Busted - Evolution

$400 @ 0.45c - Busted - DOA (Thats tame compared to some of my losses - Some go up to $2000 @ 90c)

540 Euro @ 0.36c to 0.54c - Busted - DOA

400 Euro @ 1.50 - Busted - Silent Run

600 Euro @ 90c - Busted - Reel Steal

$400 @ $1 - Busted - Starburst

The list goes on.... this is probably in the last two weeks and are NOT my most severe losses on the software. For the record I always play till bust going a few 1000 spins at a rime. It's inconceivable to me that every single game I play literally wipes a huge balance clean - Apart from DOA where I expect a hiding its evident that these slots roll cold irrespective of variance. I would expect a mauling on really HIGH variance Slots but these results are why I should stop being an optimist....

Its a bit of a rant - Its gambling... but in comparison to my favourite software (MG - Where I am still ahead life to date, this year and this month) , I can't see a recovery unless I hit a few nice DOA features.

I know some of you have had great runs on the slots listed above but apart from DOA I can't see anything throwing me a bone in the near future. The probability maybe exists on Wild Rockets (Thanks Dunover) but the rest will probably chuck paltry 100x bet wins or a bit more.

Since my last big hit on DOA I could have dumped over 10 000 Euros across NetEnt without cashing out near 1000 again. The Best has been around the 300 Euro mark.

I really enjoy Netent but the streaks and lack of payouts and wins are making me hate the software (Still Love DOA :p No matter how much I lose)- Like mentioned before - Its all Fireworks and Glitter but No Bang for your buck!

What are your experiences?

EggOmatic is horrible. Freespins are waste of time, got them about 4-5 times and my highest win was 10x bet. Of course that is just my personal experience but that'll keep me from playing this game ever again. :D

Yeah, have had bad luck and insanely bad runs on Netent games but frankly that goes with every other software provider I've played for big amounts of spins. I find that usually you can get better playing time with Netent than the other softwares and I reckon it's a mixture of high RTP and most of the slots being low variance. IMO most of Netents high variance slots are on the medium side and I rarely see hits going past the 200xbet mark.

I make 400€ to 1000€ cashouts pretty regularly with Netent playing with a bonus (starting balance usually 200€) betting around 2-5€ a spin. Now that I think of it I haven't had any decent Netent hits (apart from the DOA one) this year. Although playing quite heavily I don't remember hitting even the 300xbet mark on any other Netent slot for a long time. Hasn't bothered me though as mentioned I still have managed to cashout ok.

On a side note I wouldn't count anything on hitting a really big one on Wild Rockets. The Dunover's hit of 700xbet is pretty much as good as it gets and the top hits of any slot are insaly rare so definetely wouldn't chase that one (would rate the slot as low-medium). Other than DOA I see some slots do have huge potential though:

Flowers 15000xbet, Golden Shamrock 7000xbet, Secret Code 28000xbet. Mouthwatering numbers indeed :thumbsup:

I uninstalled and excluded myself from many casinos at the beginning of this month after getting winnings confiscated at RTG. The exclusion period being a month. However prior to that I had excluded myself from Netent casinos (2 months exclusion) because IMO the slots don't pay-out. I wouldn't be making the mistake of depositing there again. I just found that every deposit at Netent started disappearing within minutes.

Anyway... I've only ever gotten one 1000x bet win on Netent and other than that the 50-100x wins just don't cut it. I found trying to get a feature on any of the 60/70/80s slots torture. Many many features on Piggy Riches at the highest multiplier and to date still don't think I've gotten a decent win. I was playing San Choy Doa last night and went the four free spins with the highest multiplier and got 5 OAK (9s) with a wild at 15x. That was my third set of free games.

I agree with suomikala87 I think it's a mix of the high RTP and low variance games.

NetEnt slots are extremely dangerous. They frequently generate nasty patches of dead spins without having the big wins in the pay table to compensate. That's quite a deadly combination!

If you want to win anything over 200x, you need to stick with their two very high variance slots (DoA and Real Steel). Don't even bother playing anything else if you actually want to cash out.

I Suppose thats my biggest Gripe with regards to the software. The Slots play awesome and keep you entertained with 10x - 20x hits all over. Getting ahead.... Umm, maybe - but not by much if it happens.

What I can't understand is how there are no big hits in those dead patches. I have had HUGE hits... but ONLY on DOA. I think the next best I have got is about 300x on Evolution (Which is a great Slot IMPO).

How do you lose $400 playing $1 a spin and never peak above your start balance on Starburst as an example :)

I'd say 90% of my play is net ent, and so what Nate describes above is very very familiar to me, as well.
I often take bonuses and easily 7 times ouf of 10 I don't manage to turn over the starting balance even 4 times before busting out (I almost never go above 1€ per spin). This does not mean that with the other 3 times I am making profit, though. Net ent also has the nasty habit of turning dead cold just when you start to think that "this looks good, I am gonna make profit". 'No features for you for a thousand spins', I call this particular effect.

Still, as brutal as the slots play far too often, and as rare the big hits are, lifetime I am (ever so slightly) ahead. Go figure. Probably mostly has to do with the bonuses.

I have never gotten even a 900xbet hit at net net. I have played DoA quite a bit and lately Reel Steal more and more in search of my first 1000xbet.

What they say about Wild Rockets is very true: DO NOT chase the big one at this slot. I have had one 700xbet hit, but the next biggest has been well below 200xbet. I have had VERY similar experiences with a lot of net ent slots, at one point in time you hit a very nice 300-500xbet hit and you start to think that one day you can hit that again. Forget it, not gonna happen. The lingering memories can ruin many a session.

Well guys, Real Steel was in a good mood tonight. 1111x and then a couple of 200x in 3 consecutive bonus rounds all inside 5 min of play. Went from $25 to $600 in no time. Cashed out $500 on a $28 deposit (Unibet).

Like I said, you need to stick with the high variance stuff.:thumbsup:

The last month iv`e lost thousands of euro playing various Netent casinos. Its the same all over, totally dead, no freespinns 0.10-5x bet wins. Last session i spent about 1200 euros playing various games at 1-2 a pr spinn i got 1 bonus round!!! Funny thing is a couple of people i know has had the same experience..

After playing these slots for years iv`e won and i`ve lost, but before it seamed it was way easier to get freespinns and bonus rounds, latley its been hard as hell. Also after all these years ive noticed there is clear patterns to the games behaviour. If you are winning you can play any game and you will win and when your losing its the same. Its like its account based.. My guess is its not a true RNG as the RNG picks the outcome on the reels its probably got 3 settings Low,Medium, and High pay. These slots behave more like AWP than a true slot.

After this sick losing streak ive had it! Ive blocked all my accounts with netent and im done! Moving on

I never had a good experience with netent. Slots animations are great, but getting a good win for a withdrawal once in a while is very tough, IME.

Just had a major NetEnt session, did actually manage to take a 100 Euro bankroll up to 1255 whilst low-rolling, withdrew 400 thinking the remaining balance would last for ever near enough......yet managed to bust out anyway.

Pretty naive really, I did make several minor comebacks from below 100 Euros up to about 350, but it wasn't to be. So I'm not sure at this point whether to be happy with the withdrawal I had made, or to rue the money I lost!

The NetEnt giveth, and the Netent taketh away

I have to say I joined and never withdrew from 4 Netent sites before making a 350 profit at Betsson. Then my thread last week where (after nearly getting to a Nate bust-out I had the miracle recovery via 4 multi-hundred times stake hits on TSII once, Wild Rockets twice and Megaspin BDBA once) as you saw in my screenies from Guts.

I played today again at Guts 27p a go from a 25 deposit on DoA and got to 60 before cashing out 38.

It does seem highly volatile software in 3-Dice territory.

Bonnie Scotland!
The worst experiences I have had on net-ent are firstly on flowers played 100s of spins at 1.50 a spin and the biggest hit I got was £30! It's dire and so hard to hit the free spins feature where the big wins are won I was livid though as I'd built up 7.98 into £300 in a couple of hours and flowers ate all of it! bar about £50 which I then lost on a couple more slots after that, Another one to heir on the side of caution with is Thunderfist if you hit the free spins 4 times and its a good hit then cashout immediately I have lost 800,900 and even over a grand trying to rehit the freespins and win thousands on it I don't play it at all now unless its at small money! Ghost pirates can hit me hard at times too thats so high variance! take care when playing these particular slots as for reel steal, doa and piggy riches make sure you have at least 20-30 to begin with as you guys are right loadsa dead spins I actually start at low money first of all then up my bet as high as I can afford thats the best way to play these I'd say.

Im a total Netent Fanatic now..

which is really weird, considering I used to be all about MG:p Being a low - roller, I find I have ups and downs on the various casinos out there but in the last few months:

Maxino: Not talking to me at all (put in a ton of money and pulled out hardly anything) so not really liking their games at the moment

Nordic: Not talking to me at all (put in a ton of money and pulled out hardly anything ) so not really liking their games either at the moment

Casino Euro: My latest and most favourite casino - talks to me alot :D Loving their games..hehehe :p Only downfall have to play in Euros:eek: But at least its only $10 minimum deposit;)

Casino Red: Its ok, but another casino you have to play in Euros and their minimum is $20 which changed to my currency is $33 which I just cant justify to myself. Paying $33 for $20 credit on a casino just seems a little much :oops: However on the plus side , cash outs are literally 5 minutes to Neteller, I timed it :thumbsup:

sucker for punishment

Love the games but have never withdrawn from any net ent. Thinking about it, have never once made enough to withdraw (I'd withdraw a couple hund if given the opportunity) especially from a net ent as I find it hard enough to get a balance that high. I'm not a high roller (anywhere from .45 - 1.00 bets depending on balance) so my balance doesn't deplete as quickly, but it does diminish fast enough when not hitting anything.

Sucker for punishment as I always head on over to one and deposit knowing full well that it's probably fruitless. But one can always hope the tables will turn.

Slots can be tight at times, but I've had some very nice surprises - Redbet once but mostly at Klaver Casino! Definitely more $$$ surprises than with MG for sure (in my case anyway). Since my Neteller account is in $ it is less appealing to play in Euros, but at Klaver I can use iDeal, depositing straight from my Dutch bank account.

I consider any slot that can pay $6.00 on a $1.50 bet tight. The majority of Netents games generally pay nothing on big bets at least not to me anyway.

NetEnt's slots are weird, they all act similarly regardless of their variance. For example, DoA and Real Steel are no "meaner" than Starburst or Space Wars. You really need to choose carefully the games that you play there if you want to win anything.

I noticed that. Kind of like playing the same slot with a different skin. I found Netent nearly as tight as RTG... Nearly ;)

You're definately a higher- roller than me, I'm guessing you bet a minimum of 1.50 + ber spin, so for that reason alone I would never touch NetEnt as it will destroy a huge bankroll in a matter of minutes without even breaking sweat.

Most features will take 400 + spins to get it seems, this is why I feel NetEnt is ideally suited to low- rollers, i.e 40p a spin upwards, anything else seems futile after prolonged play!

It is insane how high variance is with netent.
Starting on netent i hit 5 scatters on doa on a 2,70 bet. It was beginners luck and I wish I never hit it. Since that hit i have lost so much money on netent that i have closed my account on all accredited netent casino's. I was getting insane bad runs on each and every one of them.

I have seen so many 1 to 5 x bet free spins rounds on ALL netent slots it is insane, even the slots with lower variAnce do this all the time. And the number of dead spins is is the most I have ever seen in my life.

I have had pulling my hair out sessions so many times, insane. My most hated slot is starburst. It is totally useless with an incredible number of dead spins AND no chance to hit big. Doa can be brutal but at least there's a big potential there. Also jack and the beanstack and wild rockets are useless, so many dead spins and 5x bet bonus rounds...

The slots look great but the number of dead spins are just too many.
