It’s interesting how chemical in our brains work and how they affect our thinking. When happy chemicals sag, your brain looks for “the problem”. All these chemicals lead to different let-down feeling. The dopamine let-down happens after, for example, we had great success playing slots. So, your dopamine spiked from this big event and now it’s returning to normal, and that’s why some people might feel sad. Then, there’s the Seratonin let-down which makes you feel like something is wrong with the world. When you twist your ankle during the sports game, it happens that you don’t even notice the pain. That happens because body releases endorphins to get you through to the end of the game – it’s for the survival purposes. Once the game is over, the pain is real and often unbearable. And the last one is the Oxytocin let-down. It’s like playing a slot that used to bring you money, which you felt confident about; but now it keeps taking your last cent. You can’t trust it anymore.
All those chemicals kept playing with my mind the last time I played slots at Red Flush Casino. The first slot was “Alaskan Fishing”. I started panicking rather quickly, which wasn’t really surprising because I my starting balance was €15. I got under €9, but then in just one spin, everything changed – I got €37.40 playing with a €0.30 bet. You got to love Stacked Wild Feature. I triggered the Bonus Round a few times and each time I’d win between €5 and €10. The slot was paying well, and it took me almost an hour to trigger Free Spins. When the Free Spins finally started it was a complete disappointment. I got only €6.77; only a few minutes later I stopped playing having €35 on my account even though I got as high as €51. After that I played the “Karate Pig” and “The Grand Journey” slots and even though they both would start well for me triggering Free Spins, empty spins would follow and I would lose a lot of my money. So, unwillingly I had to stop playing there.
I finally warmed up to these slots, after having success playing them, but they let me down now. Well honestly, all slots let you down eventually. Now I need to wait for my chemicals to come back to their normal levels.
