Tight slots or............

12 replies • Last post

..........bad luck or maybe I need a new game besides slots? Maybe I don't bet high enough (but even when I have tried that, every now and then, doesn't seem to make a difference.)? I have tried shorter sessions, and all kinds of strategies to make my few dollars last longer, but slots just seem tighter lately, even at my favorite, Win A Day.

Is anyone winning anything out there? I am about to go back to the land casinos, lol.

I bombed out the last time I played. I tried different amounts, nothing seemed to help me win.

The trouble you have is that almost none of the American-accepting casinos publish their RTP figures or payout rates. So you have no idea whether you are playing a loose or tight game before you play it. Slotland and Winaday have claimed for a long time that they pay 98% but don't back it up with any evidence.

3Dice are the only one that springs to mind that do publish those sort of numbers, but they don't break it down game by game though.

Stick with it, Hope! I had a nasty dry spell lately, but just had a nice round of luck on Sunday that got me back into positive territory.

You can do it!

Thanks, 'Slim, and I am happy to hear that. Are you still playing Blackjack or was it slots? Where did your luck change, if I may ask? Good for you! Smile

I know you take your time, too. I try to sign out and go back later if I am not winning or after I hit something big: I will give a few more spins than give it a rest. None of my strategies seem to be working, lol

I have looked at that page at 3Dice before. I have only played there ONCE with real money and that was a tiny bit I had won at one of their "tenner" tournaments, so it sure wasn't much (and didn't last long, lol). They don't have easy deposit options there (wonder if they ever will?), so usually I only play their tournaments.

That is a great point, CL-Ed. It should be required, IMHO.

I was actually swinging some sports bets on Bovada. I ended up hitting a small parlay that paid pretty well. I ended up putting up bets on baseball (which can be pretty boring to watch otherwise) and had a great time watching it all play out.

Good for you, 'Slim!

I am taking a definite break, because I can't even play very long at my favorite, Win A Day, anymore. This is when it is time to take an extended break. I was thinking of a little Texas Hold-em at Bovada, but maybe later on in the summer. I am disappointed in Win A Day, because I used to be able to play for days on a small deposit. I will play some free tournaments at various casinos when I feel like spinning the reels. Smile

I have deleted all my casino sites and play exclusively at win a day or slotland. I am bored and fed up with the stupid playthroughs at the other casinos and never winning any more. Sometimes I can play longer on Winaday or Slotland. Just like the games better.

I hear you, Susiebear. I don't care for Slotland much, but I do love Win A Day. However, the are disappointing me lately, too, seeming like they are tight as well. I usually only play there now except for tournaments at others and a little Holdem at Bovada. Yesterday I got my account at Win a Day up over 100 dollars for the first time since I can remember, but even that did not last long. Ugh. I am ready for a winning streak! Good luck to YOU, too!

My casinos have stagnated a bit. I really am looking for something fresh. Maybe my luck will ramp up and I will end up doing better.

I am sure hoping so for all of us! This is getting ridiculous. I am beginning to think the only places people win big jackpots anymore are the blacklisted casinos or the ones that do pay but take FOREVER. lol Still, I will not be tempted! Sad
