Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that the past few months there is less and less of winning shots. Less and less bonus rounds free spin rounds. I deposit for the fun of it. of course i like to win who can say they dont like to win. But to sit there round after round and spin after spin and all you see is 2 scatters or the first 2 reels line up no wilds no match in 3rd line gets pretty boring. And it seems its across the board rtg rival mg and independent casinos not just one group of them. But with saying that its our choice to not deposit and the casino itself seems to not care for all of us regulars that dont play this or that week they have hundreds of new clients. Tired of the bonus rules and thats even if i take one i hate them changing as your playing. Tired of having problems funding the few options we have to even deposit to a casino. Tired of a few that seem to take forever to pay you. Tired of customer service not having a clue to what your asking. So ask yourself why do we play- for the fun of it but now the fun is gone. Maybe time a bunch of us enter a poker room and play each other for fun. At least then we all know misery loves company.
Sorry was just my time to vent.

As many screenshots as 3Dice has had, I went in and deposited (a nice tidy sum) and fell in love with the 5x pay slot at 75 cents. Dumped a ton in it...and it seems more I play the more lemons are added to the reels (which I know is NOT the case) but it sure sucked my pocket dry this weekend terribly and @ 75 cents am amazed at how fast it goes..I hit the lemmon on the first reel 15 times in a ROW I believe...lost count after the first 5 times..

I even put ANOTHER in $100 bucks in (yes stupidly) just to make sure it wasn't me and sat there and yup...it did a slurrrrppp....and all gone...(at 75 cents now mind you)

I still like the game but I will definitely be more careful in my depositing there ...I actually thought it quite humorous after about 5 times getting the
L emon L emmon x 5 which we all know pays NOTHING.


Can't complain too much, really did have a nice run this week to cover this dumb move on my part thank goodness!

I agree, there are the "lulls" ... But the up times are really good when they do show up! :thumbsup: Hang in there Lauram, play for fun for a bit and then the good times will be rolling again.
I managed a cashout at Inetbet last night. Not alot, but enough to fund my QT so I could play where I want with that $$. And I posted a screenshot in 5 scatters 5 wilds. Although someone else must have hit that jackpot (Vikings Voyage) because I noticed today it's gone:mad:.. but that's ok:D.. congrats to whoever did win that one.. I was managing to have good luck on a couple of their slots.

If I am not on a run at one of our favorites... I just pick another for that day.
Hang in there girl. It's coming.. :thumbsup:

some VERY accurate points, i have to agree that im really losing interest aswell, month after month i can go through play after play and win nothing, i cant actually remember the last time that i played with my own money and ever went above my deposit amounts, recent examples being 50p a spin on ISIS at ladbroeks and going over 800 spins without a bonus and a win over something like 6. second was over 600 spins on avalon only to get a bonus result of 11, thats 12 spins at 60p at up to 7x.
The last time i hit a decent bonus on medieval moolah at 3dice i cant even remember and the number of times that i got a bonus of 2 or 3x my wager is just a farce. the service is excellent as always but deposits can dissapear in a matter of minutes. at least they have decent loyalty deals though, ladbrokes give me nothing so i think thatl get closed first in good time.

have to agree

Im having a desperate run atm on betfred .deposited over 200 in last week twice depositing 100 and its all gone in a matter of 20-30 mins eachtime at 50p slots ..biggest win has been 4 .80 no bonus rounds nothing so gonna slow down for a month or so but its really quite infuriating i wouldnt even bother so much if i had got at least a bonus round but nope nothing not a quack...:eek2:
even tried video poker for about 30 earlier playing 20p a game had a crazy amount of high cards trying to double up..but ahh well its all random...:lolup:

How true and this is where the fun factor comes in for a lot of us low rollers.
We deposit thinking hey give us a few hours of play time. Bonus rounds free spins and then if you are lucky enough to hit them they pay nothing just dead spin after spin. Lets hope the casinos read some of this and tweak the slots a turn for the players.

One thing I have noticed is that online casino play is definitely seasonal - people tend to play outside more in the summer, rather than indoors online!
That could be one factor as to why there are less screenshots.

Even I am only playing 3 casinos this month instead of my usual 6-7.
But I'm still doing OK - another month of profit from Ladbrokes ongoing generous daily & weekly promos, and currently grinding through a $150 deposit +100% bonus at Mummy's - nearly half way through WR, and bank over $700!
That's all slots play of course, so I'm getting plenty of features, even if not many are post-worthy (over x100).

Maybe time to take a little break Laura, or try some different slots to what you normally play...?

Take care now.

I can say that "at this moment" I am having fun.

I got a $10 freebie from Sloto'cash and cashed out $100. A $10 freebie from Club World and cashed out $100 and deposited $25 of the monies won in Sloto'cash today and cashed out $100.

I am LOW, LOW rolling and it seems to be working out. At least I am getting some of the money I have deposited back. :D

Thats great annie funny how it goes that way. When i get the chips from sloto and club those seem to be the times i get to cash out strange isnt it. I also seem to have more fun playing those as the slots seem a little looser those times.

Quite frankly, I very rarely deposit anywhere anymore. I've been depositing into the sportsbooks, getting deposit and reload bonuses (no ridiculous rollover and excellent payout chance) and betting sports. It's much more interesting given the current online casino environment and your chances are much better. For the most part, sports don't cheat, so if you do some research, you can make money with the bonuses as well.

Well maybe, but the thought of throwing $45 at a 124/1 shot sends shivers down my spine! :eek2:
Perhaps I have a mental illness which prevents me from betting big :p Mind you I did have a few 5 spins on Cashapillar recently, but I consider myself VERY lucky to have got away with it!

Another forum I visit is filled with players who regularly take say a 100% bonus on 100, and then play Blackjack or PaiGow at 100/hand! I know the maths is on their side, but I don't think I could ever get my finger to click the 'deal' button with a bet like that!

My 'fun' is trying to beat the casinos by meeting WR without losing - that's what's been turning me on for years - and long my it continue!
:thumbsup:

Dont know about you guys but since Rival rectified some of the technical glitches on their slots, it seemed that medium-variance slots have suddenly switched to high variance ones. Travel Bug, Hobo's Hoard, Grandma's Attic and 5-reel circus are those that spring to mind. The features could, all of a sudden, disappear for 200-300 spins only to give you a big win after that. I have experienced these on several occasions at different rivals recently. Before the rectifications, features were more frequent although they didnt pay so handsomely. Is it just me and my sinister feelings?

MY WIN PERCENTAGE DRASTICALLY REDUCED EVERYWHERE

The amount of my cashins has decreased over last 3 months. Also, my cashins usually represent one highly lucky spin or bonus round versus winning subtantial/and or small consistant amounts across several games.

Can deposit and play and never hit ANY bonus round on games where previously could count on hitting a bonus round frequently even if payout during bonus round is low.

I consider myself a skilled and knowledgable player of slots, RTG and Microgaming and I think the payout percentages OVERALL have been very very low.

Also, I don't like that the Payout Percentage Reports on the casino software(microgaming) are no longer being updated.

I have decreased play alot as I am losing way to much and far more than ever experienced in past 4 years.

In other words, can't play continually if I can't even break even or at least not lose an amount that makes it NO FUN to keep playing. OR more than I care to lose in other words.
