    Only had about 60K to play with so keeping the bets to 150 per spin.
    The browser hung and had to restart.
    Come back in and restart the Auto-Spin.
    After about 15 spins I am out of money.
    Come to find out when I restarted the browser the default was set back to 6000 per spin so when I hit the auto spin it ate through my cash in less than a minute. :grrr::grrr::grrr:

    Happened to me one time.
    Fortunately I was spinning manually and caught it after about 5 spins.
    Still lost a whole bunch of points.

    Yep, it's happened to me too. It's amazing how I never seem to hear about people winning on those first few accidental max bets.

    Happened to me a few times. Once I actually gained from it, but then I Knowingly kept on betting big-------and lost. On the bright side, it helped me get closer to the next level a bit faster than normal.

    Just did it this morning. Luckily it was only 10 spins. It could have been a lot worse.

    Yeah, was playing 30k a spin, not 3k and burned through almost a million chips!

    Couldn't be the one time that you go on a heater and win a million :grrr:

    Worst thing is that I had done it before, but only for a single spin... I thought I had a result when the bonus rolled in, but I got zip from it...
     
    Double digits!
