Mine was Treasures Of Troy Bonus. Two retriggers and NOTHING. I got 30 spins and a big fat ZERO. I was disgusted and pissed. Then the Bonus came up again just a few spins later and I thought, "Okay, maybe this will be restitution for a ZERO Bonus." Nope, it was another ZERO Bonus. I was pissed off once again. The sad thing is, I was on a nickel slot times three, so if something had hit, it would have been great. For example, 4 Man In The Helmet symbols ould have been worth $60, nothing to sneeze at. A full line of him would have been worth $300 which is serious cash.

I have had a number of Bonuses on Quick Hits Platinum, Cleopatra Keno, Super Bonus Keno, Fireball Keno, Triple Ace Poker and various must-hit Slots result in nothing but the pays for the initial win.

While annoying, there are many games for which this scenario is hardly unusual.

But Treasures Of Troy Bonus gives you nothing for winning the bonus symbols. Most likely because you only need two Trojan Horse symbols for the Bonus rather than at least 3. Most games make you get at least 3 Bonus symbols.

Symbol frequency is relevant, so just because it, 'Only,' takes two symbols doesn't necessarily mean anything in and of itself. However, if you do posit that the Bonuses are more likely, then it stands to reason that the average individual Bonus Spin could have a lesser value and that there might be more whiffs.

Unfortunately, I can't speak to that individual game as l have never played it. I would say that most slot machines I have played return at least the original bet upon the Bonus being triggered.

Fire Island/Blue Moon/Ruby Riches are exceptions where the mere act of hitting the Bonus doesn't pay anything. I'm probably aware of a few others, but cannot come up with any specifically off the top of my head right this moment.

Wow you guys had the same experience too?! And I thought it was just me. Put in a 20 on an Asian dragon 7 looking like machine only to hit the bonus 3/4 of my bankroll in and won like 70 cents which was my initial bet after 10 free spins or so.

Looks like I missed something while actually working for a living, and you are gone, but those comments are more evidence you should not be gambling....ever.

I don't play those machines with generic cartoon characters like that, they all suck in my experience partly for that reason. I only play Quick Hit 7's (which if you get 2x pay as your enhancement you're f#$%ed but if you get locking wilds, you're probably going to get at least 80) and Hot Roll, which I think is the best bonus like, ever.

Zer0,

I think you've been on here long enough to know not to drop f-bombs. Warning.
