Well, for the past week, I have been playing those free slot tourneys and nope
haven't won a dime. But I am not disappointed.
However, tonight I am a bit concerned and will pass this onto all of you.
Tonight, I was playing at the following casinos.
The game for the free slot tourney is "Independence Day" a game which I do
like. However tonight, I noticed something was wrong. It took me a bit and
then I noticed on the last reels 4 & 5 that the symbol "Declaration of Independence"
was NOT showing on these reels.
You need 3 on a active payline to have the bonus round.
Needless to say, it's hard enough to get three, especially when you only HAVE
three working instead of five like you should.
I did carefully look at ALL the casinos and the free play areas AND the paytable
to assure myself I wasn't in the wrong.
I have contacted each of the casinos via email and their online form. I will let
you know what happens, but for now I would suggest caution if playing this game.
That's all for now. I am tired and wiped out (Yes, free bankroll was depleted in
less then 2 hours and this made me start paying attention) and I am going to bed.
Good night and I am only urging caution, not anything which might lead to a
situation which might get out of hand.

- if any other members of these sites can take some time spinning this game to verify the observation... it would be most helpful.
A similar occurrence happened awhile back at the top games casinos for the game "Dougies Delight"... in that case it was in the bonus game, the only place to hit the Mega jackpot of 5 wilds... however there was no wild symbol on the fifth wheel making it impossible to win. once detected and confirmed by players the uproar almost shut a few of these casinos down.
- Yes i'm in those tourneys and he is right, first three reels is all
but i thought thats the way it was, i didn't look at the paytable
to see whether they only appear on the first three or if
they are supposed to appear on all 5 reals, they never popped up
on reels 4 & 5..
The independance day symbols are not wilds, they only pay for bonus when hit
you must get 3 on a payline
- I have contacted customer support at English Harbour so they can look into the matter.
i will provide feedback when it is returned.
Here is a copy of the e-mail I sent:
I am a moderator at the forum for latestcasinobonuses.com, the forum being available here: http://www.latestcasinobonuses.com/onlinecasinobonusforum/.
It was brought to my attention that there may be an issue with your "independance day" slot game in that two of the needed bonus symbols are completly missing from reels 4 & 5.
I have requested independant verification by additional members of your site (by the way it is being reported currently at all vegas tech casino's so issue may be on software side) and have had it verified.
As our site has a little over 12,000 active members who are now aware of the situation i felt it best to contact you directly.
Please check into this and if you find our observation correct, place the game on hold till the problem is corrected.
Once corrected please contact me at email@example.com or on our forum and i will ensure that players are aware that the situation was found and corrected promptly.

PS I am posting a copy of this message to the forum so players can be assured that you are aware of the issue and will be working to correct it."
- In my case, it was just something I "Caught"...
I've been playing for (Like I said a week) and never have had the bankroll deplete so quickly. and it was only on the last casino I caught it.
In regards to your playing and thought "That's just the way it is"
I would agree, except when I have played other casinos, they have different settings and so I would have expected the bonus area to say "Such and such only appear on reels 1, 2 & 3"
Similar to the game "Rain Dance" on the RTG casinos. Indian Chief only appears on reels 1 & 5 and the coyotes on reels 1through 5. But the paytable/bonus rounds explain this. Nowhere could I find anything to let me know if 3 was the amount or there were supposed to be more.
Oh an Jimbeaux? That was a well thought out letter.
I haven't received any response, but considering it's the weekend..Didn't really expect any yet
I will say this, this is one of the few times I looked and then looked harder before I said anything. Wanted to make sure I was on the side of angels before getting forked in the butt
- I saw a post in another forum regarding this groups tourneys. They said they have ghost players in the tourney and the randomness of the games are questionable. Alot of Vegas Technology casinos were recently blacklisted for spamming and other complaints. It's a shame because I know English Harbour used to be a very honest casino. I agree with Genenco...proceed with caution

genenco.. im a little curious, how did you do with funky chicken?
i swear, 50.00 at each of those, and i got 2 chicken 2 times..
out of all 5 places...
and i play half the 50.00 @ 6.25 a spin, the other half i lower to 1.25
Well (Damn I'm embarrassed about this) I have 6 casinos all tied into this tourney (Caribbean Gold my sixth casino) and so I hit Millionaire first as when it does the 3 reel slots, they ALWAYS have you betting $2 to start with. You CANNOT go lower and I dislike that. So I made them first.
I thought like PMM2008 says "Win big or go home" and so I cranked that sucker up to $6.25 and the 3rd spin hit four of those chickens and soon was cracking $1,409.44 (Or something about there) and stayed at that for about an hour.
I tell you, it was then I started looking around at the game and the wheels spin so slow the game is actually quite boring..Plus the "Bounce" on the slot makes me question the honesty of it.
So, I find an options and stop the animation, which in turn reduces the wait til from 20-40 seconds to about 1-2 seconds.
I then hit quite quickly three chickens and twice more then chickens in the bonus round. How can I lose? Right?
Well, I decided on a smoke and set the sucker to $12.50 and set for 500 spins.I cam back to find the machine basically depleted and I'm sitting there with (Here it comes) egg on my face for being such a dolt as to not reset back to the $1.25, or the $6.25 or even to stay at $12.50 and return the animation to normal. I think I'd still be playing right now if I had done this.
The rest of the casinos were so-so, I believe I got Silver dollar to $500 at one point, but it too was depleted.
I was stunned as for a brief moment with Millionaire I was in the top 25 players...(Sigh) So close, yet so far.
That's why I like the 4 hand VP as there's like 41 places paying and I possibly have a better chance playing that. But that's what happened to me this tourney..(Blush)
In closing I will say this as I have been watching. Rarely and I mean RARELY is those at the top there, come the next day. I've only seen one person be at the top and stay there (They must have bet big and hit big too) the whole time.
I don't liken it to skill, it's like you're handed 6 tickets..Maybe one will be the lucky one and so, that's it.

Do you think when they post the standings ie. 1st place john b - $127,980 lol or something rediculous like that. You must get really lucky to get it THAT high on slots.
Yes, I have played and the slot game was "Wild Cherry" and that's one which if you're on the lucky machine and bet limit ($10 I believe or $25) and hit the three cherries you get 25,000 coins.
So that's not hard to believe and you see that and think "Damnnnnnnnnnnnnn, that must have made them crap their shorts!"
- I've been in first place alot of times, but i can never hold it
i tried and tried, for some reason it will just suddenly stop
hitting ANYTHING and drop to depleted..
Even when i just stop playing holding 1st place, or just play really slowly
it drops, i always say now i'm in first place, why can't i get the big
I do have alot of fun playing, and its free lol
They don't seem to spin slow, they do about average
One day i'm gonna win that 1st place prize!
- I too have heard nothing back to my emails.
if anyone else is still currently playing at the vegas tech casinos, Please try the "Independence Day" slot game and keep an eye out for the "Declaration of Independence" bonus symbols on reels 4 and 5.
I am unable to load the games because the stupid software thinks I live in kentucky.
- By the way Jimbeaux. When (Should you ever have the chance) to see the snapshot that the casinos show as your mouse moves over the selections, you'll see in the snapshot, that there's a"Declaration of Independence" on the fourth reel.
So I am pretty sure you probably are right it's on the software side and not intentional by the casinos.
But not to have them respond in any way, shape of fashion is ..Well...Strange.
