    Just so you know no-one is perfect. I recreated it later so it wasn't a blip - would have sent it to Microgaming but they never acknowledge emails so hopefully they read this.

    Can you tell what it is yet?

    Yea Simmo, this should show a $6.00 bet whereas it only shows a $5.00 bet.

    Did I get it right ? What do I win ? :D :D

    You got it right. You win nothing. Bit like me :)

    I played around a bit and most times it showed right, but a bit later I got it to show 7 coins and $6 so its definately doing something funny in there. That said, it is spinning at the correct amount, just displaying a smaller amount.

    Yes it is. I did a few tests as this was my first question. It's doing exactly what you'd expect from the number of coins wagered as far as I can tell.

    Yes I noticed it too, for about a month now its been doing that, and its not the only game. There is also another bug and that is when you check your stats it doesn't register your all of your wins or spins. All the games I noticed with these bugs never seemed to pay out anything for me :(

    Ah I did well on Avalon. Took out $800 from a $300 starting point. Lost it on Thunderstruck ;)

    I think what you might be referring to is that the stats do not update on games that allow you to gamble your wins until you click the Collect button, or until you do something else that ends up collecting the win for you (such as changing the coin size, number of lines, or coins per line). The same thing happens when you trigger free spins... the stats won't update until the end of the feature, and until you click on Collect if applicable.

    Simmo - I noticed this just the other day, and I think it might have been Avalon I was playing... no doubt it's a side effect of the recent update that lets you choose coins or credits as the display mode.

    Okay, not to derail the thread but.... I don't think Simmo will mind, it's somewhat related. What's wrong with these three pictures? They are actual screenshots from an MG casino, the ones that appear in the lobby when you hover your mouse over the name of a game:

    Bingo! :thumbsup:

    My guess is that the person responsible for creating them got lazy or something.

    Move along now, nothing to see here.

    I have seen many of these bugs in MG over the months (and years).
    Occasionally, some are to the player's advantage, most are just irritating though.

    I thought the bug was the one where the first two reels come to rest but the others just keep on spinning. The one with the bet not updating started last month, and I first noticed it on Reel Strike.
    Another bug is that the bubble that shows the bonus/cash amounts does not update properly, sometimes I can play for an hour and it still shows the amounts from the previous session. There is no "refresh" facility either, as there is in Wagerlogic.

    In order to try to find the bug that MAY be of advantage to the player, try the following exercise.

    Play a bonus down to the last few credits, well below the initial bonus amount. Show your frustration at the appalling session by cashing in your comp points for cash.

    Answers on a PM, but not to Microgaming or a casino rep please!:D

    We have a winner.

    Congratulations to SlotsJunkie, who correctly guessed the essence of the bug that MAY be of help to the player!

    Damn, you are right! I gave up after 3 minutes, but I also never played that slot much. Had it been 'Cabin Fever' I would probably have noticed.

    I gat this as well

    It isn't that it is late updating as suggested by SlotsJunkie, there are a few games (can't check which at the moment) that don't show any wins in the stats for the top three payouts, they stay on zero. Also the number of spins only updates for losing spins, any winning spins don't count.

    Another thing I've noticed, not really a bug, but interesting. Play Witches Wealth, when you get the bonus, hover your mouse over your credits (before you press spin) and you will know what the bonus is going to be. Noticed this on a few other games, but can't remember what they are right now.
