    Very true Fred, certainly no disastrous bonuses. I think it was $13 - a decent 33X multiple. Regardless, the point I was trying to make was that these were the average ones - the typical bonus on these machines. We all start off hoping for the big one and most of the time when the bonus is over we are left feeling like it could have been better - better than average. You probably saw it, but Shamus recently put together a video on the truly dismal outcomes - which as you know happen frequently too.

    the payout was under performing...could I suggest that as a player of many bonuses that maybe you need to manually stop the spinning every 3rd-4th spin...maybe something will trigger... also... I rarely anymore ever bet less than $1.00... usually less than a $1.00 is a knuckleball ---you're not gonna really know which way it's gonna go.. sometimes I find not having the bonus was good because instead a get a big line hit....

    I usually go with every 5th or 6th spin but I guess that would work also. I also threw a kunckleball in high school. After too many bad innings everyone started calling me knucklehead

    I like the way you think!

    It's getting so any more I have to try to justify it by saying well if I had spun that many spins it would have cost spins X wager.

    Exactly what I've noticed too, you made the great video though so all the credit goes to you sir!

    Love it! I notice I'm always whispering to myself "retrigger, retrigger, retrigger"! Doesn't happen very often.

    5th or 6th can work as well... i think sometimes the slot has a pre-determined threshold on what is gonna go as a payout that if you confuse the machine it will not adapt so quickly.. [ I know this doesn't sound logical]...i also think if someone been sitting at the slot for a rather long time without doing a single thing but sit there - like an old person waiting for that charter bus ride back - meanwhile lots of action going on with other slots the "sitting" slot is COLD but ready to be friendly.. it might be luck but that is exactly what happened to me. that is just being observant instead of just randomly without aim picking on any slot but at the last mini second. I love the what if's sometimes cuz i often have no control over playing slots i wanna play - i'm not one of those people that will wait 15-20 minutues just to have a seat on a slot if i cannot even be slightly sure it's gonna pay me well. once i wanted to play Betty Boop... yea yea bunch of freaks just hog all over those red pretty slots and made me be picky and i select Wizard of Oz.. Well the beauty of it was my profit was around $160 or so in 5 minutes.. Cashed out thank you lol
