    Last night I was playing Island Eyes and down to the point I was killing off the remaining few cents a few lines at a time. As luck would have it I hit a bonus. "Congratulations! You won 4 credits!" {twirling index finger}

    Several years ago I was playing Mardi Gras Madness (which I miss dearly!) and hit a bonus which paid nothing! Yes, it said "Congratulations, you won 0 credits." That one did p*ss me off! :(

    Anybody else have a bonus that was equally disappointing?

    I got zero in a Battleship bonus round once. Making it worse was watching my own ship just get completely obliterated by the CPU, which would have netted me like $300 if I'd chosen that ship instead.

    On a willy wonka machine I didn't win anything on the bonus sadly I said to hubby "I didn't get anything" and then willy wonka said "you lose, you get nothing!!!" It made me laugh at least

    Another zilch here on Amazon Queen slot. Got another bonus a few spins later, netting around $2. Figured that the casino was tightening up the slots after that. :/

    One time on Hot Hot Penny I got a bonus of 18 or so free spins. After all the free spins I won $3.87. I was playing $3.50 a spin in order to be eligible for the bonuses.

    Yay.

    Woo hoo.

    WTF?

    On any zero bonuses in that game, I believe they play that clip. I admit it's better than writing "Congratulations You Won 0 Credits"...lol

    I don't play slots too much, so I think I have avoided a compete goose egg so far, but I have been close. But with free spin bonuses, not winning a damn thing should occasionally happen. For example, if you had a penny slot whose bonus spins hit nothing 1/3rd of the time, then winning nothing for an entire 10 free spin bonus game should happen about 1 in 57.7.

    I've gotten zero any number of times. Usually on the stupid Aragorn Bonus on the 3-reel Lord of the Rings machine. <Slash!> 5x. <Slash!> 10X. <Slash!> 15X nothing is still nothing.

    Yep - I've had zippo, can't remember the machine; man, it's just so wrong...

    Just as bad is when you've been playing max, and down to the last few cents, as in your case, and you hit the bonus you've been hoping for all night, but it's a 10 cent bet and you win $32.00...instead of $320....grrrr!

    China Shores - something like 12 free spins, and absolutely ZERO. Maddening. Such an emotional roller coaster.

    At our local casino, I hit zero credits on bonuses probably 40% of the time. They are so stinking tight there.

    That's one thing that annoys me, having to pay extra to be eligible for the bonus. That's probably very good for the house!

    LOL, kind of like that TV game Weakest Link ... "... and you will leave with NOTHING!" {b*tch!} :)

    Harrahs Atlantic City 2013; I had $1000 in FP. I decided to be $500 in to Fort Knox Syndey Omars Horroscope and do 4-max bet spins $125 a spin, I triggered the bonus and for horroscope picked Virgo it was all spins 10x multipler, first spin was a retrigger, so 20 spins in total, 8 spins in no win yet but retrigger for 10 more spins, spin 28, no win. Spin 29, no win. Spin 30-final spin...NO WIN!! 30 spins with a 10x multipler betting $125 and NO win. My BFF won over $30k on Fort Knox Cleopatra but I dont like regular Cleo (like Cleo II!) I called her she just laughed. I didnt find it funny and still dont. Whether it was FP or not thats just crap!

    a few years ago there was some sort of hunting-game type slot at Bellagio that, IIRC, had those video game-type guns attached to it, and in a bonus round you had to like, shoot animals or something.
    well, it was like 5 a.m and I was falling down drunk and couldn't figure out how to actually participate in the bonus round when it hit.
    so I got 0 credits.

    Just this last weekend at a local casino. Playing $6.00 a spin on Dean Martin's Wild Party. I picked Dean in the bonus round which normally means a few hundred minimum win but could be a Jackpot. My friend and I were excited and high fived thinking I hit it big. 5 spins later and $0.00 to show for the bonus.

    I "won" $0 on a dollar Quick Hits machine free spins bonus. Really pissed me off.
