        Hiya LCB'ers,

        I remember the start of the new year last year and it seemed like most of the casinos were super tight. I am curious to know if members are finding the same thing to be true this year. I played at  a couple of RTG casinos including the Land based casino and i have not had any good luck at all.

        Is it me or is history repeating itself with the start of the new year and casinos are tightening up the machines?

        Hi Lips!

        Hope you had a good time with the new year festivities!    A new year opens a new leaf for everyone...and every casino. Simply put, if last year was bad, then a casino would be trying harder to improve, quite unlikely by tightening up their games, perhaps more of loosening them up a bit, or by offering irresistable bonuses!

        I have now won $600 in just the first 4 days of 2013...which certainly is fabulous...and perhaps indicating a possibility of loose slots for the time being! But then again, luck is elusive, luck is evasive. Some get it good, others may not. Choice of casino/gaming software is also important. Rival, Top Game and RTG seems to be hungry all the time. Not sure about Microgaming. CTXM seems to be going good. And Playtech is my ricebowl ( ), so to speak. 

        So make a good choice, play smart, don't push for a quick win...and hopefully everyone can then win!

        play microgaming, the slots cant be 'tightened'..the rtp is set by microgaming and cant be tinkered with Though I really much doubt any legitimate online casino tampers with their rtp; they dont need to, they already have the house edge

        Hmm, an interesting taught lips. I played at RTG's mostly during Holidays, and so far havent notice any change compared to last year. I guess it must be relative to which games are you playing. For example, the only Microgaming slots on which I did very good are those with stacked wilds like Monkey King or The Grand Journey and similar.

        Hmmm.... I didn't notice any change with RTG slots but I noticed it with Rival slots, they are very, very tight.

        Anyone who thinks these individual casinos (ie MG)  can't change the rtp. Will believe anything. This is gambling and where money is involved. Fixes are involved as well. Do you think anyone will invest a $1million in starting an online casino and can't control it? The owners are liars just like, lawyers, politicians, car salesmen, etc. Over on another forum. A well respected Auditor just busted BETFRED for running rigged games. Some of you are really in denial when it comes to online gambling.

        Well, thankfully, not all of us wear tinfoil hats. And in the case you mentioned, players are being compensated.
        Anyone who thinks MG slots CAN be altered, should probably stop playing online. After all, if you really truly believe games are rigged, why on Earth would you play?? This makes zero sense to me. If you honestly believe in your heart that a certain casino/group/software casino has the means and desire and is in fact fixing games, you'd have to have one serious gambling problem to still play.

        I have found that Club World Group is extremely tight right now and have been for about the past 2 months or so ... heck, you can't even get any playing time for your money and the bonus rounds are practically non-existent.  Don't know why but that is how it has been going for me with them.

        ON 9/11/2002 exactly 1 year from the date of 9/11. The winning number in the NY Lottery is 911. The S&P Futures index closes at 911.00. They control the lottery and markets. NFL, NBA, MLB, etc. ALL controlled. Surely something as simple as MG software is and can be controlled. Lets me guess. You took the word from some owner. Or someone working within MG word. LMAO and SMDH.  But if you want to believe it. Then keep dreaming my friend. If you like it - I LOVE IT!!!

        and if you believe they are all crooked, then surely we wont see any more posts from you this year about your gameplay. I mean, obviously, you wouldnt play online if they are all crooked, that would be silly

        I had read at some point, somewhere online of course that RTG casino operators had control to adjust the percentage payout. I can't prove this is true but by the same token if you think about it, say a machine is paying like crazy wouldn't the operate have the right and ask that the machine be adjusted to a lower payout percentage by mfg?

        If i was a casino operator and was losing money on a particular game that was loose as a goose i would think i could contact the software or have some type of leverage to adjust it. Legit casinos are going to set the machine within reason and i do believe most do but what about these off the wall casinos we have never heard of?

        It is a mystery where we may never know the true answer.

        RTG software freely admits operators can adjust the rtp of some games; i think the margin is around 2-5%

        land based I believe too, have some control of the rtp of certain machines, of curse they are expected to follow the regulations as set out by their region's laws, and I'm sure, there are those that get caught, as they say, with their hands in the cookie jars. It's happened here. The casino is usually slapped with a fine

        I completely believe there are shady operations, unscrupulous operators and rogue casinos. I just don't believe every casino is out to get us by shady tactics; it doesnt make sense to build up a huge following, spend millions is PR only to be torn down by getting caught. Does it happen? Sure. Does it always or generally happen? Of course not. Genuine businesses want happy customers, run by the books and still rake in loads of cash by playing straight and narrow.

        Then maybe that's the key words "freely admits" and all software has the same capabilities. It makes perfect sense they would have the ability to do this as an operator running a business and with that kind of margin it is reasonable.

        I would tend to agree. I do know that land based casinos move machines around when they shut down a couple hours a day. So when you go back the machines you think are hot they have been moved down or on the other side of the bank of machines. I learned to remember the number on my favorite machines and find them!
