Bet Phoenix Flaw

- This is so strange and I know it happened because it happened two times. I only played one game and it was Ocean Dreams. I know you have probably seen when the reels are spinning crazy and the minor and major jackpot's are spinning and going up super fast. Anyway, this was happening since I got on the machine. The major jackpot was like 1698.00. Like I said it was doing that weird spinning and the jackpot was going up FAST!! Anyway, I'm spinning away..I started with 40 bucks btw. I notice the major jackpot is up to 1708.00. Then BOOM...it drops back down to 1698.00 AGAIN. I was like wtf? So to make sure I wasn't just seeing things I played it thinking I will see if it drops again after it reaches 1708.00. It was still doing the crazy spins. As soon as the major jackpot was about to reach 1709.00....boom it dropped back down AGAIN to 1698.00. After, this I logged off and came straight here. Has anyone had this happen at any RTG casino? I have never seen the jackpot go up, down, up and back down again to the same number. It was the strangest thing. I am not saying this is just a Bet Phoenix glitch but I just noticed it there. I have had the reels do those lagging, crazy spins (sorry this is the only way to explain them) the jackpot raise super fast. I know someone said something about this and stated they thought it was the jackpot trying to catch up. I will have a close eye at the other RTG casinos and when it starts spinning like this I will see if the jackpot changes like it just did to me. I still had money left in my account but like I said I closed it out because I was freaky. Any thoughts?
- You're right MommyMachine. You can see the original thread here.
I have to say that I have watched the RJ at Jackpot Capital go up and down like a yoyo. It did it so many times, I left the game. I have noticed that when the counter is going crazy, I never win.
Well that's 3 casinos now that it happens at.
It's a strange practice.

- I'm glad I am not the only one who noticed this!
I played there again just now...It did the same thing on EVERY game I played!!!!
Games were: Enchanted Garden, Achilles, Ocean Dreams, Rain Dance
Seeing this makes me nervous and uneasy. A progressive jackpot should not go down only up, unless someone hits it. I think this has been an eye opener for me and I will really watch where I deposit at in the future.

What do you think it is then? Has anyone ever inquired about this? It is not worth my time to ask them. I just know in a land casino this would not happen.
My point exactly!!
They get away with doing wrong by saying it is a software glitch or bug! Even if that were true, an honest casino would take care of it right away!
- You have a good point Slots, but I think it is to make players think that something is happening when it really isn't. I have been reading lots of posts about this here and on other forums, and your right, I don't think it is a glitch either, when I first starting playing on line last year it never happened. Then about 3 or 4 months ago it started, and still continues. Glitch or not it makes you wonder.
- This is what was said for the reasoning behind it in the previous thread (the one I mentioned above)

Just read this post and though I would give you some information. We asked RTG about this issue when a player pointed it out some time ago and here is the reply from the programmer:
"The actual value of the progressive is not increasing just because the meter is spinning. The meter is an approximation of the amount in the jackpot. This is the industry practice that is used in all meters in Las Vegas. As with those, we 'spin' the meter to entice play, and to make it clear that the value is not set, but increases with play.
Again, this is industry practice, recognized over time as the best way to do things. The meter resets to the current value whenever the player leaves and comes back to the machine."
I hope that this information clears things up for anyone with concerns. Please be assure that when a jackpot hits then the full amount is paid out that has accumulated. If you see a counter resetting it is not deducting funds it is simply correcting itself to the real value of the jackpot.
- Okay so if this is industry practice, if the real RJ is 5878 and when I spin and the counter is going up and up like a bat out of hell and I hit it at 5902 what am I going to get paid? The real amount or the 5902 it was when it hit?
And by the way I was just in Atlantic City, NJ and this did not happen on any of the progressive games I played. The Jackpot went up and never came back down.
