Anyone have much experience with these machines? They are pretty horrible and you always hear nightmare story's but I have had 2 plays on them over the past month or so.
When I played these years back, I always played blackjack and to be fair had some nightmare experiences. I recall once putting in over £300 and losing the lot in 1 sitting (about 15 mins).
Reluctantly I had a go on them in December as new machine upgrades were done at the local William Hill shop.
Playing £1 a spin on some leprechaun slot (instead of blackjack) I hit 4 of the highest paying symbols for £90 and walked away with £70 profit.
About a week ago I felt like giving it another go. Same leprechaun slot. £2 a spin this time. £50 in. It got me to £70 and kept me around that figure.
Then I noticed a new feature called "Super" and "Mega" spins. The mega spins are where you pay £20 for 4 mega spins (so £5 a spin). It says the spins are enhanced with a higher payout and more chance of winning.
1st set of mega spins paid £30 profit. Second set gave me a bonus round. The bonus was where you press a button, the leprechaun jumps onto different mushrooms, uncovers a prize and carrys on until "collect" is revealed. Surprisingly the bonus round paid very nicely. Kept landing on £30 mushrooms and when collect was revealed I had won £175 from that bonus round.
Cashed out right after which gave me around £200 profit.
Both times recently gave me profit which is also quite bad as i'm having to really restrict myself from playing them again.
I know I was very lucky to win those times considering they are known as the crack cocaine of gambling and you hear time and time again about people losing £1000's in under an hour on them.
