    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 found Red Hot Triple 7's to be one of the worse I have played. even in bonus rounds them pop up. It is ok it it hits 3 of them for a retrigger BUT... most times just takes away from winning money.

    Yup, great blockers - they do a fine job for their Master :(

    I was very lucky on the red hot triple 7s machine at Coushatta. My husband and I had just started playing we had not been playing 10 minutes when we sat down at a $1 red hot triple 7 machine. He played one and I played the one on the other side of him. Right off the bat I got the free spin bonus. I was playing max. I am not sure what I got but the game paid me over $8000. I usually play a lot of penny machines so at first I thought it was $800 then I realized it was a dollar machine. I remember thinking "alright I just won $8000 not $800". Needless to say we were very happy with the result. It made our trip better because we knew if we spent every bit of the money we had brought to gamble with we would be bringing that $8000 home with us. That first day was fantastic. We both did really good on most of the machines we played.

    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.
