  1. Agreed, also... Any slot can throw out massive wins but it can take months to see another one, unless you are playing everyday 100's of spins. I had to nanny myself and close/limit accounts to small deposits because they get inside your head that you just need to play a bit more to see a wild line or good bonus. A £20 deposit would extend into a £100+ slot session, which for me on normal wages isn't sensible. Best thing to do is switch games after 30-50 spins, if they are ready to pay they shouldn't take 200 spins and by then you might only break even. I put on my sports/lottery bets and
