Sp just curious. Did he see the screen and it not pay or did it show the credits but then he wasn't awarded them? If he just saw them and they didn't pay then I would find it hard to believe. The casino isn't changing the programming to screw people, and I find it weird that wms would have multiple problems at one casino yet none that we hear of from hundreds of others.

These are vlts right? Maybe something is screwy in their vlt system?

I can say in the first case with the Colossal Wizards slots she won the credits, but they were never transferred to the bank. Suddenly, the machine went black and it said "No signal error". I was there witnessing that one as it happened. She never got the spins never played either of course.

The second case was in the bonus with pretty sure the same problem. The third case with the airplanes in the bonus round, assume the same. Most people wouldn't know how much the win would be calculating themselves, so confident won but not transferred.

Whatever the problem, if anything fails before the bonus ends, they're not getting the wins, because the wins are never made official. That's how these bonuses work, the credits accumulate in the bonus, then are awarded at the end. Confident this is where the problem lies. Credits left in the bank are not a problem. A memory problem, idk. Seems they can't recall the bonuses like other casinos, where they can just jump back where the bonus left off.

Yes they are VLTs. I agree never heard of these things besides reel tilts everyone takes to believe were never really wins. I've seen the door open to the room seeing all the servers, so know they exist. Something is wrong with that system, whatever it is when it seems the benefit of the doubt goes to their favor.

I wouldn't put anything past that casino and think it is run dirty as far as they run progressive machines.

I had a malfunction happen to me at a Village People Party machine! I got all three bonus symbols and I said to the woman next to me, "I finally got the bonus! It's about time! " She looked at my machine and said,"I hope it's a good bonus for you!" Before I could press "start bonus," the machine went black and I saw a sign saying,"System rebooting. Call slot tech." After he fixed the machine, my bonus symbols were gone! O.O I told him that I had gotten bonus symbols before the machine had suddenly went black and rebooted. The woman attested to what I had said. The slot tech checked the last 10 spins and none of the last 10 spins showed my bonus symbols! What the hell? O.O

The thought just occurred to me, I have played the machines so much, I might not have even noticed if a bonus wasn't placed in the credit bank. The machines so obviously were downgraded last fall/winter, small pathetic bonuses so common, I wouldn't even realize if the wins weren't added. I don't recall if a machine went black, but maybe it doesn't have to.

Once at Mountaineer nearly a decade ago, played a $5 Wheel of Fortune game, the reels ended on the spin, swore it lit, then the reels went into tilt. Techs came, no bonus and no win for me. Didn't even think to argue after they had said malfunction told I didn't win, and didn't know there was a right to argue and a process for it like I do now. Malfunction is not the end, but you have to not take no for an answer right away.

You would think there would be an accounting long term which would look back after millions of plays to see if the expected has been reached beyond a margin of error, but I don't think there is. As long as they're making money, nobody cares if it is more than expected. Would these blips show up telling the regulators something went wrong? I am not sure if they would since they're still quite rare at most places.

Forgot to add something I noticed last time at the casino, the machines don't have the typical labeling stating malfunctions void all pays and plays, must be 21, etc. Not on the top glass either. Maybe buried in the help screen, not sure, don't remember looking, but think it's standard for it to be thrown in buried in the rules.

If malfunctioning always occurs in a casino then that's very suspicions. They might be using those excuses to escape from paying the customer his winnings. They also should shut down the particular machine to undergone a maintenance.
