    What do you think? Would you rather be surprised or would you rather know if you are going to win on that spin (slots with bingo cards) or know what prize you are going to get on wheel spins. I am making this post and got me thinking about knowing when things are going to happen because last night at my local casino playing one of my favorite slots, someone I have seen at the casino a lot and watches this game a lot told me something that now looks obvious about knowing the prize outcome before the ball lands in the prize.. I could know what prize I am going to get before the ball comes out of the hole!. I was surprised when I watched it a few times on different peoples machine including mine that when the lady says "go" and the ball is still in the video part before shooting out of the hole, that is the prize you will get. It was correct each time and it takes out some of the fun now that I know this and how obvious it looks now. It has been my favorite slot game to play.. You have to be quick to notice though and cannot blink or will miss it at the start though. Same with ones with reaction where the arrow spins around fast and where you hit spin to stop it, that is the prize you will get. I get frustrated with these kind too even though it probably really does not matter when you press the spin button to stop it from spinning.

    I am okay with knowing if I am going to win something in a spin if I get a bingo, but I get frustrated when I know it is not going to be a winning spin. There are pro's and con's to this and because of knowing when I am not going to win before the reels stop, it ruins the fun and I can careless about looking at the reels if the spin is a losing spin. Also, I tend to change bingo cards a lot from frustration as well even though it probably does not change what the next spin will be. I used to play those a lot, but I don't really bother playing them as much anymore.

    Oh and one of my favorite slots that I know now what the outcome will be at the start takes the fun out of the bonus round now just like the slots with bingo cards. Being surprised is more fun and I am surprised you can easily tell on this one slot where you know where the ball will land from where it starts and what prize pocket is closest to the ball. I have never paid any attention until the guy pointed this out to me out of no where and knew I was going to get "$10" and told me that before the ball went around a couple times and then landed in the $10 pocket (where it started out at when the ball showed on the video screen). Whenever I play this slot now, I have to try not to cheat and look at the start to know what the outcome will be, but that is not easy now that I know I can find out what I will win before it shows that I won that prize.

    Predetermined bonuses suck imo.

    But if you are playing slots with bingo cards (aka class ii), they are legally required to be this way. All outcomes are based on the bingo draws and the rest of the game is just for show. Ironically my first slot "jackpot" was at a class ii racino in Alabama. Got 5 "Texas Tea" symbols. In reality I covered like 22 bingo spots in 48 or less calls. I don't remember exactly on the bingo part. It was before I took a lot of pics.

    And you play class II slots sometimes? aren't you from cali? I thought most casinos there offered class III (aka Vegas-style) games.

    But rereading this, I'm guessing you're favorite game is class iii, titan 360 right? Unfortunately stuff in class III can either be predetermined or not. And if the ball comes out with constant velocity and the wheel has the same velocity pattern, then yeah results will be predictable. A roulette player's dream!

    yeah, titan 360. I went to a different casino today (Morongo) and you cannot tell where the ball is going to land into right when it comes out of the hole like at Pechanga. Also another difference between my 2 locals pechanga and morongo is that Morongo's takes a while for the ball to get in the hole and makes it more fun to watch. Pechanga's majority of the time the ball gets into a hole quick and I think that is also because of the flaw where you can tell what you are going to win before you win the prize. Also I looked at youtube videos of this game and not all titan 360's are like pechanga's where you can tell what your result is before the ball is released from the hole. and all the machines are pre-determined if you notice the air keeping the ball out of the wrong prize pocket and the vacuum sucking the ball into the correct prize pocket (all physics).

    Oh and speaking of the bingo slots, the ones like 5x, 10x, 20x, 50x and so on that says "welcome to the bonus feature", some Michael Jackson and betty boop ones that have the bingo is what I am talking about. The ones that you have to get 5 balls in a straight line or diagonal and if you don't, you know you are not going to win anything. The ones where bingo balls are all scattered and you still win, I still don't know how that works so I play those slots ignoring it.
