    I hate machines that bonus tease way too much...

    I've lamented before how much I hate Ellen machines for this reason, but the ones that have been really boiling my blood lately are Quick Hit machines.

    Not sure why but I've felt compelled to play(HAHA play...) the Wild Blue and Wild Red Quick Hit machines recently. Might have something to do with the reasonable $1.50 max bet on the penny versions. The amount of times these machines tease a bonus is borderline criminal. It's so bad that I started playing a game with myself to see how many times it would tease a bonus(first two bonus symbols) before actually giving a bonus at Max Bet. I wouldn't say it's a fun game, because as the number starts to escalate quickly and you're realizing how badly you're getting screwed in real time, you tend to get angry fast, but its eye opening to say the least.

    I set a new record last night. I had previously got into the 40's a handful of times on the Wild Blue/Red machines and the playboy machines. Last night was special though. Was playing wild red, and after $300 lost in about 20 minutes, I threw in the towel after 114 bonus teases. ONE HUNDRED AND FLIPPING FOURTEEN. In 20 minutes... At only $1.50 a spin... and had to give up with no bonus. I think based on my points the money was gone in about $450 worth of spins. How is that even possible?!? I feel like that's more mathematically improbable than getting 9 Quick Hits. Meanwhile 30 cent betters would cycle in and out next to me and get the bonus within 10 spins regularly. I'm so sick of feeling like I'm getting hosed.

    I hate the endless bonus tease too.. I've found it to be especially bad on the very games I love and play the most.. G+ deluxe, old Aristocrats and older IGT games.. I've gone thru many hundreds of spins with the two bonus symbol tease on way too many occasions and yet I keep playing them!

    I hate that too. But... I LOVE the Wild Blue and Wild Red Quick Hits machines. They are getting harder to find. They pay so much better than the newer ones, and I love that max bet is only 1.50.

    Same here. IMHO Bally machines are the worst.

    Great blockers.
    Worst are the ones that tease during a bonus round.

    I have no words for how awful this is...114 bonus teases.

    I, too, have been so frustrated while playing Quick Hits that I have counted the number of near misses (2 of 3 symbols appearing) before the bonus finally hit. . The highest I ever reached was 17.

    Those Bally Quick Hits and Aristocrat slots such as Miss Kitty are programmed to have lots of teases. There are more bonus symbols in Reels 2 and 3 than 4. It gets frustrating when you get several teases in succession in these games. It's just lazy programming if they need to use that tactic repeatedly.

    I really won't play quick hits with serious money for this reason. You're truthfully better off not playing max because you'll lose more doing so and it can be painful. Used to play platinums with $2.25 max bet, but got sick of 25x3 bonuses paying off $40 time after time. It's a funny game, because casino employees recommend them because players burn a million for them to get a few handpays and tips. When I think Quick Hits, I think 86% and nevermind.
    That's all folks!

    I love the Platinum Quick Hits. The main reason is in 2015 I hit all 5 Platinum for $7500. I also like them because max bet is only $1.50.
