Any other low rollers ever feel that way? Like the other day, I got 300x on Reactoonz on my 3rd press. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m always pleased with win, but because I was on 20p it was £60, then about 10 presses later I got 400x gargantoon. When stuff like that happens, I can’t help but be a little bit annoyed with myself thinking oh god if I’d just let it run on a quid, my balance would be about a grand right now instead of £250.
But I guess you never know; I stake low because if I deposit £100 i want it to last and get a good session out of it, since I can’t afford to make another deposit if I bust out quickly. And for every time I get some huge win or feature in my first 10 or 20 spins, there’ll be many more times I don’t.
But it never seems to bloody happen the few times I’ve built up a decent balance and decided to stake up. 150x Secret of the Stones feature on my 6th spin? Yeah, that’ll only ever happen when I’m on 25p, I dare to go as high as 75p you can bet it’ll gobble 100 spins and do naff all.12th November 2018 at 10:57 am #23316MichaelLFC96 WANTED $114Outlaw
The way I tend to think is that stuff like that would never happen in a million years on higher stakes but that’s just the skeptic in me!12th November 2018 at 1:46 pm #23360Biohazard WANTED $675Outlaw
Although we both know that stake and RTP are independent (with the exception of those slots that offer an increase in RTP the higher your bet – however I’ve only seen this in the casino myself), it does sometimes feel that way! I went through a long period of 50p/spin a year or so ago as I was getting tired of my balance getting wiped clean after just 15 minutes on £2/spin, however whenever I got a decent bonus I was always a bit disappointed as I knew it wasn’t my usual stake.
Since then, I tend to keep to a minimum of £2, with £1 being my (somewhat) low stake. Can sure burn through the balance though if you don’t get a healthy start!12th November 2018 at 2:03 pm #23365
My rule of thumb is that for a good session, you should be starting with 500 x your stake. So if I deposit £100, 25p is about the highest I can go (with a couple of exceptions – I’ll play on Bonanza on 60p for example because I know 100 spins will probably only cost about £20 total). If I have a month where I’m feeling rich, I’ll start with £250 and go 40p or 50p stakes depending on the game. I just can’t bear to play even £1 on a £100 or £200 starting point, because most of the time if you do that you’ll be bust in 20 minutes and I’ll feel like I haven’t had my fix of slots for the money.12th November 2018 at 2:24 pm #23384Biohazard WANTED $675Outlaw

That’s a good rule of thumb to have! I sometimes deposit £100 and whack it on £1 stake – sometimes I get lucky and get an early bonus, but yeah, unfortunately, a lot of the time I’m busto with ten minutes!
More recently (as I cannot afford a reasonable £2 stake starting balance each month) I tend to try and build my balance with high(ish) stakes blackjack and then move to slots if and when I have a big enough balance. On a right cooler at the moment though, lost count the amount of hands I’ve lost in a row…12th November 2018 at 4:58 pm #23407
A lot would depend on waht your target was. Do you start thinknig ” I will withdraw if I double it”?
I can only deposit £10 at a time, so my stakes are always very low. I target £50, and then withdraw. If I am lucky to get a good win and have a bit left, I will then and only then raise to 40p. Its very rare I get a run good enought to have 60-£1 stakes.13th November 2018 at 1:54 am #23525granpappydave WANTED $18Outlaw

I’ve had 1000x bonuses on both buffalo rising and genie jackpot megaways on 10p and I was annoyed at both lol. Started with £10 both times tho to be fair and with the genie jackpots one I took the £100 to solar discs and did £2.50 spins and hit a 3 disc bonus that paid £600.
I rarely play micro stakes, I was just trying both those games out to see what they are like so as I’ve only had 1000x bonuses 3x having two of them at 10p is annoying. Couldn’t one of them been on 5 lions when I hit a bonus on £5? Nope it paid £80 haha.
